  • Seaside simplicity scores

    "The house is set beautifully about 30 seconds across the sugary sand of the dune to the beach. The views are stunning from both screened and open porches... THREE of them!! The air is serene and restful. The beds are comfy. The two fridges make life easy. The pool is a great bonus. A much needed relaxing two weeks amid quickly selliing our house and waiting for our new place to be ready. Highly recommended."

  • Dana & Friends

    "This was an awesome place for us three girls to stay, and it was the perfect location. We went down to Beaufort for a "Celebration of Life Service" at a church only a block away, and our meals were only 100/200 yards down the road. Great walk but not so far that you need the car. Thank you Charlie and Fran Calvert for allowing us use your great cottage. It is in the heart of it all. We will look this one up for sure again the next time we are coming to town."

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We just returned from an amazing week at Fripp Island. We had such a great time, I felt obligated to write a review. First I wanted to mention that this was my first experience renting a home from the VRBO website. I have been warned of many scams that exist, but book with confidence, This house is legit! We planned our trip with my brother and his family, so there were four adults and four children in our party. The house was perfect for two families and we even had an extra room that we didn't use during our stay. The upstairs loft included two double beds, a single bed and a small couch along with it's own private bathroom. This ended up being the perfect spot for the four children to share. They felt like they had their own space to play away from the adults. Downstairs there were three bedrooms. The master bedroom ha a king size bed and had its' own private bath. The second bedroom had a queen (or a double) and the third bedroom had two twins. All bedrooms had a nice size closet, and were furnished nicely to make you feel at home. This kitchen area was small but very efficient. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked the kitchen was in regards to cooking utensils, pots & pans, and serving dishes. As an added bonus there was a mini-fridge near the kitchen table which was perfect for keeping bottled water and other beverages. The best part of the house was the location. The house was situated in the center of the island on the main road, within walking distance to the main club house, Olympic size pool and tennis courts. And don't let the pictures fool you, the backyard faces direct beach access so it is almost like being beach front. Fripp Island is very unique. The deer are abundant and we had deer walk through the backyard on a daily basis. The beach itself is very large during low tide, and we had a great time playing Bocce Ball and building sand castles. The pools are amazing! The resort has five pools to choose from, and we spent most of our time at the Olympic pool due to the location to the house, but the pools located on the south side of the island are great for a day with little children. The only downside to our entire vacation was the islands' distance from Beaufort (the closest grocery store) so before you go, plan ahead, make a list and stop on your way to the island. I would highly recommend this house! Thank you for offering such an affordable place to stay."

  • Even More than We Expected!

    "Although the photos of the house and views are great on this website, the home and location is even better than expected. The ocean view is much closer than we thought it would be but it would not have mattered had it been at a greater distance. The marsh is constantly changing and so entertaining. We were even treated to double rainbows over the marsh one evening as we sat on the deck. The house is wonderful and everything we needed was there, including some things we did not know we needed. The neighboring house on one side is close but screened well by great landscaping and the other side was even more private. The entire neighborhood is very quiet and life seems to move at a much slower pace. Everyone, without exception, in the community was very friendly. There is a golf cart and bikes are available at the house, but we like to walk. When we went out to walk our two fairly large dogs, we were greeted with welcoming smiles from everyone; something I had worried about before arriving. It seems to be a dog and family loving community. There are sensible rules in the community - dogs on leash and no excessive barking for example, which helps to make this community so special. We checked out each of several beach access areas and they are all very different. You can go from a quiet area where there are great sunsets and fishing, another where there is a wonderfully flat beach lined by beautiful houses, or you can go to an even more quiet area where the marshes are behind the very wide beach at low tide. We found it hard to leave the house and its wonderful view, but we enjoyed a trip to Hunting Island, found some great seafood (from Gay Seafood) to cook at the house, and met friendly people everywhere that we went. The guy at a local market, Marsh Tacky, asked if he could send out dog bones when he noticed our dogs in the car. There is nothing negative that we can think of and we hope to return soon. Thanks for sharing your home and providing such a wonderful experience where our dogs were also very welcome!"

Low Country & Resort Islands Travel Tips

The coastal islands and low country of South Carolina are truly unspoiled and naturally beautiful. With quiet sandy beaches, marshes alive with wading birds, some of the best championship golf courses and charming towns to visit, the South Carolina Low Country is hard to beat. Many people who come here on vacation end up retiring to this lovely area due to its mild winters and gentle pace of life.

The Pros and Cons of Low Country Vacation Rentals

Whether you are looking for a quiet beach escape or a livelier resort such as Hilton Head Island, you will find plenty of vacation homes and condos to choose from. Although they do not have room service or a daily maid to clean the bathroom, they do have other advantages which may outweigh the small negatives. Vacation rentals are more spacious even than expensive hotel suites. The furnishings are to a high standard and you can watch cable TV and videos from a comfortable sofa or armchair, rather than sitting on the bed. Kids get their own rooms and better still, their own bathrooms. A fully fitted kitchen makes dining-in a money-saving option, unlike a hotel room. Vacation rentals often have a private balcony or terrace for sitting outside and some offer hot tubs, play areas and swimming pools on-site, making them the ideal option for flexible family vacations.

Low Country Beach Rentals Make the Perfect Base for Family Vacations

South Carolina has plenty of things to see and do for all the family. Choose a beachfront rental and the children will spend hours shell-hunting, digging in the sand, and playing in the sea. Larger resorts offer windsurfing, jet skiing, surfing and snorkeling. The coastal estuaries are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Rent bicycles and leisurely explore the byways and trails on two wheels. Book a half-day fishing trip or boat trip. Towns offer plenty of restaurants, cinemas, theaters, shopping and antiquing. Beach rental homes are the perfect ways to enjoy quality time together as a family, building long-lasting memories to treasure.

Places to Visit Around South Carolina’s Low Country

There are a host of delightful places to visit within easy reach of your vacation home. Savannah is a beautiful and historic city just over the border in Georgia. Further north is the delightful and historic waterfront city of Charleston. Take a horse-drawn carriage tour and learn about its fascinating history. Beaufort is a waterfront artists’ community with a charming collection of historic homes. Head for the harbor where fishing boats will be moored. The Shrimp Festival in early October celebrates the local cuisine with live entertainment and some great food. The ACE Basin Refuge is a bird-watcher’s paradise where numerous birds pass through on their migratory route. See painted bunting, songbirds, herons, birds of prey and osprey along with plenty of local wildlife. The Hunting Island Lighthouse is one of the many which were built along the South Carloina coastline. You can even climb to the top for the best sea views.

Getting to South Carolina’s Low Country

The nearest airport in South Carolina is Charleston International Airport which is 49 miles from Beaufort and a little further from Hilton Head Island vacation rentals. Alternatively, enjoy the scenic roads and drive to your South Carolina Lowlands vacation home.

Low Country Condos are Perfect All Year Long

One of South Carolina’s biggest draws is its delightful year-round climate. Classed as having a humid, subtropical climate, many snowbirds and retirees choose to spend their winters along South Carolina’s shores. Temperatures are cooler on the coast than inland in the summer, with sea breezes tempering the 90 F (32 C) weather often experienced further inland. Cold snaps during the winter may see temperatures drop below freezing occasionally but the days remain pleasantly warm averaging 60 F (16 C) even in January. The state gets some rain throughout the year but it is heaviest in late summer when up to five inches may fall in short but heavy showers.
