  • Perfect Spot to Relax

    "Our family of four stayed here for three nights and it was exactly what we were looking for. The house had everything we needed and was in a great location: short walk to the beach, quick drive to Hunting Island state park (the pass is a nice bonus), close enough to what we needed, but still quiet and secluded. We were lucky to have nice weather for our stay and enjoyed all of our meals on one of the two screened in porches. The observation deck is a real treat, too. Amazing views, and a great spot for bird watching during the day and stargazing at night. The owners were friendly and easy to work with. We will definitely keep this spot in mind for future vacations."

  • Peace and quiet!

    "My husband and I stayed in this lovely old house the week of June 21-28 with our two dogs. Throughout the booking process, the owner was very helpful and understanding, especially when our deposit got lost in the mail! When we arrived, we were pleased to note that the pictures didn't really do this place justice. The house was so nicely decorated that I was surprised they allowed children and pets, and everything was well cleaned and nicely stocked. It is a comfortable place, and we really enjoyed the huge screened porch. In fact, we ate every meal out there! Our dogs loved it, too, and kept a close eye on the local squirrels. There is also a good sized fenced dog yard that was so nice! Our doberman needs to play, and he had a great time out there with his ball. We used the bedroom with the king bed, and it was quite comfortable, with nice linens on the bed. The bathrooms also had lots of towels, all very soft and fluffy. No thin sandpaper here! The things we enjoyed most were really the lovely surroundings and the quiet. No traffic, no screaming children and parties going on that you find in some condos. The live oaks all around are so pretty, and you can get a nice little glimpse of the water from the porch. My husband loved the tiny little upstairs porch! The owner is very truthful about the beach, thus earning 5 stars from me. We knew what to expect upon arrival. Don't come here expecting to really use the beach for anything except nice walks or observing nature. There are a lot of shells, and you really can't even put down a towel. However, Hunting Island is only a few minutes away, and the beach there is wonderful. You do have to pay a $5.00 per person fee, but you can come and go throughout the day. It was well worth it to us to have such a relaxing place to come back to each evening. It was close enough that we went out there with the dogs each morning, then took them back to the house and crated them through the heat of the day while we went back to the beach. You must also note that the house is old, and old houses have old things in them. The doors are old, the cabinets are old. You may need to go to a different room to find the wifi "sweet spot". I have no patience with people who stay in a historic home, then complain when things don't work with modern precision. This place is old, but that is the charm of it. I cannot stress enough how quiet and pretty it is here, and is especially nice for middle aged couples like us."

  • Perfectly secluded

    "This home was perfect for our honeymoon. We never saw anyone else on the beach which was exactly what we wanted. The home was spotless and kept well. I wanted to take most of the beautiful, unique furniture home with is! Everything was comfortable and quiet. I will admit if you are looking for vacation with constant outings and close dinners this is not the place. We went to te grocery once and stayed in most of the trip! The porch is wonderful to watch the water. Chairs were already there to take to the beach (which is your backyard!) The trees are gorgeous with Spanish moss surrounding the house. It was like staying in a photograph, that's how perfect it seems. It was fantastic and perfect for our honeymoon. Five stars!"

  • Wonderful trip

    "Home was just as described if not better. Kids loved catching crabs and cooking them. Owner has stocked the house with almost anything you need to cook. Hunting Island was great. Beautiful beach that was not overly crowded."

St. Helena Island Travel Tips

View History with St Helena Island Vacation Rentals

Visit St Helena Island and be a part of some of our country's most interesting history. St Helena is near the historic town of Beufort—the most fought over piece of land in our country. The area surrounding St Helena Island is full of Civil War historical sites, museums, and interesting history. The port city itself is one of the oldest port cities in the United States. It was settled by the Spanish in the 1500s. Take a few days to explore the historical sites surrounding St Helena Island and you will not be disappointed.

Have Your Needs Met with St Helena Island Beach Rentals

Staying on the beautiful South Carolina beach can be so easy. Just look for Low Country condos or beach houses and pick a vacation rental that suits your needs. Instead of a cramped hotel room, find a vacation rental that will really make your trip fun and relaxing. You can find rentals that are big enough for your whole family with several bedrooms and a large kitchen stocked with all the amenities you need to cook a meal, and you can even find a pet friendly vacation home. Or you can find a cozy condo for two, still with everything you would need but a closer more intimate feel.

Enjoy Your Vacation the South Carolina Way

Enjoy your vacation by getting out and doing some of the favorite local activities. If it is the season, loggerhead turtles may be laying eggs on the beach, and you can watch this amazing phenomenon. Or go swimming or searching for seashells. Look up the local events happening in Downtown Beufort Park and mix and mingle with the friendly local population. Take a stroll down the beach or watch the sunset from the pier.
