Recent Beaufort reviews

  • Highly Recommended

    "This house was perfect for a weekend getaway in Beaufort. It is furnished with everything that you would need and the location is perfect. It's close to downtown and right next to a park. Having the beach pass was also really nice. This house is well worth it and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Beaufort."

  • Pristine Setting

    "What a gorgeous setting and an immaculate house. Everything was better than it is pictured and the view is absolutely stunning. The sunroom on the front of the house is a marvelous place to enjoy the view when the weather outside is "frightful" and the fireplace in the living room is warm and inviting on those cold winter days and nights. The kitchen is better equipped than any rental property I have stayed in and lends itself easily to hosting dinner parties or just a single, solitary guest. This is a fabulous retreat and one I hope to return to many times over."

  • The best vacation rental ever!

    "We have been visiting Beaufort for 7 years and stayed in 4 different rentals, but #5 - this one - was the best ever! The location is perfect, close enough but far enough out to have peace and quiet. Nice flat yard, easy walking. The dock is perfect - unfortunately the crabs left town when we got there. I can't say enough about the house - the kitchen is extremely well stocked. I like that you can see the water from most of the rooms. I don't know for sure if we will be making the 8 hour ride again, but if we go for it we will rent this house again. Thanks for answering all my questions Mike! You have a gem!"

  • Sweet Sanctuary

    "I loved this roomy cottage in beautiful Beaufort. From the moment I stepped inside, I knew I was somewhere special. I loved everything about this home-the gourmet kitchen, the comfy beds, the screened porch, the beautiful linens, the sweet teapots, the central air-conditioning. Veronica, the owner, has an eye for beauty in interior design and is very warm, gracious and accommodating. Enjoyable in every way. Highly recommended!"

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.
