Recent Beaufort reviews

  • Beautiful and peaceful....

    "We stayed here for our son's graduation from Parris Island. After our long days on the base, it was great to come back and spend quiet time relaxing on the back screened in porch. Sitting on the dock just watching the wildlife and fish jump was incredibly relaxing. We actually had a deer gallop through the yard one day while sitting on the porch. After graduation we had our family back to the house and all of them just fell in love with the property. It couldn't have been anymore perfect. Thank you and we'll be back."

  • Absolutely Fantastic!

    "Our family stayed here for my son's graduation from Parris Island on May 8, 2015. Everyone fell completely in love with the house. There was plenty of room for 6 adults with absolutely no one feeling crowded. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful and we all loved drinking coffee on the front porch every morning. It was great knowing we were only minutes away from the base and we could actually hear the recruits practicing on the firing range early in the morning. I highly recommend this rental property to anyone who is going for a graduation or even just to have a wonderful retreat away from their busy lives. The owners were wonderful to work with during the booking process and even called to check in on us and make sure everything was going well. I can not say thank you enough for allowing us to stay in your home!"

  • 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."

  • 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!!"

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.

Other types of outdoor recreation in Beaufort include kayaking, boating, cycling and horseback riding. Check out Beaufort Kayak Tours, Abco Fishing Charters, Camelot Farms Equestrian Center, LLC, Eastville Passage & Marine and Lowcountry Bicycles, Inc. for your rental needs.

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.
