  • A Special Get-Away

    "The Carriage House is fantastic! It is clean, spacious and there was plenty of towels and supplies for our stay (may not seem important until you stay somewhere where you're doing laundry every day). Colleen is very accommodating. We booked on short notice and payment setup was not an issue. She also provided us a place for us to store our kayaks and bikes that made us feel comfortable. It is close enough to walk to town for some shopping or going for a meal. There is plenty to do in the area if you enjoy outdoor activities too. We were close to areas to 'put in' for kayaking or do some biking or walking around historic Beaufort. And if you venture out a little for other restaurants, there are plenty to choice from in Port Royal or Lady Island. We enjoyed Dockside in Port Royal along the river and for a great Sandwich, go to Alvin Ord's. We definitely will stay at here when we return to Beaufort."

  • Loved by our family with young kids

    "This was our second time staying in this house and our 6th stay in Habersham. The house is fabulous for our family of 5. There is a beautiful park across the street with a tree swing and plenty of space to run around or sit on the porch and watch neighbors walk their dogs. There are sidewalks surrounding the park and our kids just rode in circles for hours. There is an amazing playground about 6 blocks away, an easy walk or bike ride. The house is comfortable and well furnished. We do have to put a few breakables up on the mantle, but mostly kid-friendly! There is lots of sporting equipment in the shed: bikes, fishing poles, soccer, volleyball, baseball. I would caution you to check the distance to the beach if beach proximity is important to you! Hunting Island State Park is gorgeous, one of my favorite beaches in the world, but it is a little bit of a drive. We usually just make one day a beach day, pack a lunch and enjoy! The pool is gorgeous! There is a community boat dock on the river. The neighbors are so friendly. The downtown in Habersham is so sweet, several restaurants and shops. This is a great house in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods, a must see!"

  • This One is a Diamond...

    "This is the second time our family of four has rented this cottage. It is a fantastic property in a beautiful setting, and located centrally between Savannah, Charleston and Hilton Head for those who can pry themselves away from this cottage to see the sights and some history. The cottage is small. But the master bedroom is a good size and the 4 bunks in the bunkroom have lots of room. The beds are comfortable and have quality bedding. The master bath is beautifully designed and outfitted, with separate tub and shower and double sinks, and the second bathroom is nicely outfitted as well, including a washer and dryer. The kitchen/living area is well laid out and is outfitted with top quality everything, from appliances to the TV with cable, Netflix, YouTube, etc. There is no shortage of entertainment. BUT......You are not going to be in the cottage much of the time, I would predict. The best feature of the property is its beautiful location. You pass the trees draped in Spanish Moss on the way down the long pier to the covered pavillion over the dock. Sit out and watch the river as the tides change. Listen for and then spot the dolphins that are almost always in sight, and often swim within a few feet of the dock. Yes, I know that you read that kind of stuff in lots of ads about rentals. I have no reason to exaggerate. We saw dolphins many times a day every day for a couple of weeks. You can fish from the dock and catch rays, small sharks, redfish and sea trout. With a cast net, in a few throws you can feed the family with the fresh shrimp you can easily catch from the dock. Blue crab as well, for those patient enough to pick out the meat. If you have a boat, a ramp is located fairly close and the boating in the area is fantastic with lots of places to explore in rivers and estuaries that are usually flat calm. The dock is in good condition to securely tie up to. Water plenty deep at low tide. The owner is a very friendly guy who will make sure that you will enjoy your stay. And if you go in the blazing 95-100 degree heat of August, as we did, you will really appreciate how cold the air conditioning is in the cottage. This one is a diamond."

  • Excellent hideaway

    "What an awesome find! Extremely clean and comfortable home for solo travelers or small family. Tastefully decorated for both comfort and functionality. I travel to Beaufort several times a year for work. I have stayed in some not-so-fabulous places but this is not one of them. I will definitely stay here again. Steve and Dana were very accommodating and frequently checked to make sure I had everything I needed. Everything was perfect so no complaints here. Make sure you book a day with Captain Steve for a day of fishing!"

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.
