  • Gem Within a Small Town

    "My husband and I rented Red Door, a duplex, for the month of February. The rental is immaculate and is well equipped with many immenities. It is also beautifully decorated. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to a small beach and boardwalk. The rental is also a short ten minute drive to downtown Beaufort and grocery stores. If we needed anything, we called Sally, the owner, who was always helpful. If you are looking for a sweet home, checkout this property - a hidden gem in a town that we never heard knew existed."

  • Family Reunion/Vacation

    "My family and my sister's families rented the house to attend our niece's graduation and visit with our niece's and nephew. The house was great, well maintained, plenty of room for all of us and an awesome location! The owners were very helpful to any questions we had and easy to get in touch with. The kids enjoyed riding the bicycles and using the boogie boards. We all enjoyed taking rides on the golf cart to see the island. Some people may not like the spiral stair case, but we didn't have any problems with it and we had people ages 9-50+ staying in the house. We are very grateful for the experience we had!"

  • Beautiful setting

    "This little home is charming and peaceful. My dogs had a great time roaming the beautiful grounds, and Michael's friendly dogs were welcoming and wonderful to have around. The house is located in easy walking distance to downtown Beaufort, and riding my bicycle each day was marvelous...so many different lovely places to ride to. Thank you for a lovely week!"

  • Perfect vacation home!

    "This home has everything you could need for a wonderful beach vacation. Our 2 sons and their families stayed here while we were in another house just across the street. Each couple had their own room and our 2 granddaughters were in the bedroom with the twin beds. Even our 7 month old granddaughter was comfortable because there was a crib and changing table in the master bedroom area! The kitchen is fully equipped. There were 2 golf carts at our disposal and these are perfect to get all around Fripp Island. The 2 young granddaughters were able to hang out in the "TV room" watching DVDs while the adults were out in the great room. There was plenty of room around the dining room table for all of us for our meals and for playing games each evening. We will definitely plan to stay at this home the next time we plan another family reunion beach trip."

Low Country & Resort Islands Travel Tips

The coastal islands and low country of South Carolina are truly unspoiled and naturally beautiful. With quiet sandy beaches, marshes alive with wading birds, some of the best championship golf courses and charming towns to visit, the South Carolina Low Country is hard to beat. Many people who come here on vacation end up retiring to this lovely area due to its mild winters and gentle pace of life.

The Pros and Cons of Low Country Vacation Rentals

Whether you are looking for a quiet beach escape or a livelier resort such as Hilton Head Island, you will find plenty of vacation homes and condos to choose from. Although they do not have room service or a daily maid to clean the bathroom, they do have other advantages which may outweigh the small negatives. Vacation rentals are more spacious even than expensive hotel suites. The furnishings are to a high standard and you can watch cable TV and videos from a comfortable sofa or armchair, rather than sitting on the bed. Kids get their own rooms and better still, their own bathrooms. A fully fitted kitchen makes dining-in a money-saving option, unlike a hotel room. Vacation rentals often have a private balcony or terrace for sitting outside and some offer hot tubs, play areas and swimming pools on-site, making them the ideal option for flexible family vacations.

Low Country Beach Rentals Make the Perfect Base for Family Vacations

South Carolina has plenty of things to see and do for all the family. Choose a beachfront rental and the children will spend hours shell-hunting, digging in the sand, and playing in the sea. Larger resorts offer windsurfing, jet skiing, surfing and snorkeling. The coastal estuaries are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Rent bicycles and leisurely explore the byways and trails on two wheels. Book a half-day fishing trip or boat trip. Towns offer plenty of restaurants, cinemas, theaters, shopping and antiquing. Beach rental homes are the perfect ways to enjoy quality time together as a family, building long-lasting memories to treasure.

Places to Visit Around South Carolina’s Low Country

There are a host of delightful places to visit within easy reach of your vacation home. Savannah is a beautiful and historic city just over the border in Georgia. Further north is the delightful and historic waterfront city of Charleston. Take a horse-drawn carriage tour and learn about its fascinating history. Beaufort is a waterfront artists’ community with a charming collection of historic homes. Head for the harbor where fishing boats will be moored. The Shrimp Festival in early October celebrates the local cuisine with live entertainment and some great food. The ACE Basin Refuge is a bird-watcher’s paradise where numerous birds pass through on their migratory route. See painted bunting, songbirds, herons, birds of prey and osprey along with plenty of local wildlife. The Hunting Island Lighthouse is one of the many which were built along the South Carloina coastline. You can even climb to the top for the best sea views.

Getting to South Carolina’s Low Country

The nearest airport in South Carolina is Charleston International Airport which is 49 miles from Beaufort and a little further from Hilton Head Island vacation rentals. Alternatively, enjoy the scenic roads and drive to your South Carolina Lowlands vacation home.

Low Country Condos are Perfect All Year Long

One of South Carolina’s biggest draws is its delightful year-round climate. Classed as having a humid, subtropical climate, many snowbirds and retirees choose to spend their winters along South Carolina’s shores. Temperatures are cooler on the coast than inland in the summer, with sea breezes tempering the 90 F (32 C) weather often experienced further inland. Cold snaps during the winter may see temperatures drop below freezing occasionally but the days remain pleasantly warm averaging 60 F (16 C) even in January. The state gets some rain throughout the year but it is heaviest in late summer when up to five inches may fall in short but heavy showers.
