Recent Beaufort reviews

  • Sweet little house

    "My husband and I visited Beaufort for the first time this March and found this cute little cottage perfect! I randomly rented through VRBO and couldn't be happier with the outcome! This little house is close to town, where I walked with my dogs every morning... Beautifully kept interior...Erica and her husband have thought of everything you may need and more for a comfortable stay. The information notebook is FULL of facts, directions for anything around the area. Very quiet neighborhood..nice fenced in backyard. Can't wait to return!"

  • PI Graduation

    "This house was very clean, great size, close to down town, the owner was very polite and most importantly for my family not even 10 minutes from Parris Island's front gate. We would definitely stay here again. Everything you need for a getaway for vacation this house has. Thank you again for your hospitality made our experience that much better."

  • Amazingly Relaxing!

    "We recently stayed at Mr. Ard's very well appointed home in experience you each need to have! As you walk down these streets or explore this village-concept area you are taken back 100 years with the architecture all in continuity of the 1920's. Sitting in the rocking chairs looking out over the park and Spainish moss hanging from the live oaks it is really a time warp! The people here are living lives we left many years ago for careers and life in the city. Wonderful to return! AMAZING!!"

  • Perfection in the Lowcountry

    "I rented this cottage for a 3-month sabbatical in the fall of 2014 . . . and it was one of the greatest gifts I've ever given myself. The venue is unbeatable: only 1-1/2 blocks to the glorious Beaufort River where I often saw dolphins playing; and a 15-minute walk to funky, fun, artsy, cullinary-mega (who knew?!) downtown Beaufort. It was absolute heaven to move from the front porch when the sun was coming up to the side veranda as the day wore on. The yard is large with a lovely landscape of Lowcountry flora and trees -- and songbirds were plentiful. The owner is simply delightful and she dedicated herself to ensuring that I (and my two dogs) had the perfect sabbatical experience. This home is a true gem."

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.
