  • Marine Graduation

    "We rented this property in December 2014 for my son's Marine graduation. Estelle was great to work with, answering all my questions in a very timely manner. Their home provided us with every thing we needed for our visit. The grounds were beautiful, the view from the deck around the house and from the dock was amazing. The house itself was great, it had more than enough room for the 8 of us. I only wish I could have stayed for the week. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay for graduations, as it is only a short distance to Parris Island, maybe 15 minutes. I would also recommend it for vacations. I hope to return one day soon and be able to spend more time enjoying the property."

  • Great to Work With!

    "Even though I cannot rate the cottage itself, due to unforeseen circumstances, I can rate the proprietors ~ they were prompt in responding to all queries, provided helpful information about the area whenever asked, and fair in all respects when due to another snow storm in the Northeast our flights were cancelled. My husband and I were greatly disappointed Mother Nature interrupted our vacation plans and sincerely hope we have the opportunity to reschedule in the near future."

  • What could be better than this?

    "We just spent six weeks in this beautiful home, filled with gorgeous antiques and 22' ceilings in the living room where there is also a gas fireplace that is cozy and warm on chilly mornings or evenings. We were so intrigued by the porch that spans the width of the house, with french doors opening from both bedrooms separated by the main llving room area onto the porch, that we got a tape measure to see just how big it is and believe it measures about 48' and overlooks the salt marsh, ever-changing and always lovely. We'd go back in a heartbeat---if only it were available when we want to come😰! The owners are wonderful to work with, too. And finally, I am still dreaming about the rain shower in the master bath!"

Beaufort Travel Tips

The city of Beaufort, South Carolina, is the second-oldest in the state and was chartered in 1711. It's located on Port Royal Island in the South Carolina Lowcountry and offers visitors breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery and antebellum architecture.

Beaufort Attractions

Approximately 304 acres of Beaufort have been designated as a National Historic Landmark, all located in the downtown historic district. Here you'll find the remnants of the original English colonial settlement. History buffs will want to hang out around downtown Beaufort to learn more about the buildings that still stand and their past. Check out Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour for a look at Old Beaufort.

When you want to visit the beach during your stay in Beaufort, head to Hunting Island State Park. It's the state's most popular park and attracts more than 1 million visitors each year. There are 5 miles of beach as well as thousands of acres of marsh, tidal creeks and maritime forests. Also at the park is the Hunting Island Lighthouse that stands at 170 feet tall and dates back to the 1870s. When you venture to the top, you'll find beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding areas.

Things to Do"'

Events: There are several events held in Beaufort each year, all of which are a great source of fun to visitors who are in town. The Gullah Festival is a multi-day celebration of the Gullah heritage, the group of African Americans who lived here in years past and preserved the cultural and linguistic characteristics of their heritage. The festival is held each May and highlights local and regional talents as well as art and history exhibits. The Beaufort Shrimp Festival celebrates the Lowcountry's coastlines, rich history and, of course, plethora of shrimp. When you visit in October, head to Waterfront Park for music, fun and shrimp galore. There's also the blessing of the shrimp fleet, a golf tournament and a 5K run/walk. Taste of Beaufort is a three-day event that celebrates the city's food. The festival also celebrates Earth Day and offers wine tastings, contests and music. The Beaufort Water Festival hosts a beauty pageant, a ball and fishing and golf tournaments.

Golf: Thanks to Beaufort's moderate climate, you can enjoy a round of golf no matter what time of year you visit. There are two courses here for golfers of all skill levels including the Callawassie Island Club and the Dataw Island Club.

Arts and Culture: The art scene is a big part of Beaufort and art galleries and craft shops are found throughout the city. Musicians, actors, authors and jewelry artisans call Beaufort home and much of the local entertainment, such as the Beaufort Orchestra, puts on Gullah-inspired productions at the University of South Carolina Beaufort's Performing Arts Center.
