About Philip LaFountain

My wife and I are originally from Northwest Ohio and we have 2 boys. I joined the Marine Corps in 1992 and attended recruit training right here at Parris Island. At the time, I was completely unaware of how beautiful this area was. The Marine Corps brought us back to Beaufort, SC in 1999, where I served as a Drill Instructor on Parris Island for 3 years. My wife and I fell in love with the town for its beauty, history and simple life style.

                                                          Kimberly Y.

                                                          Nice home near shops and waterway. Beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Would book again.

                                                          Great property, very comfortable bed, quiet street, perfect location for walking to the sands

                                                          Angie M.

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It was the perfect location to walk to the Sands and get shark's teeth. The front porch was lovely to sit on and watch the world go by while on a mini-vacation. The kitchen was perfect for boiling up some shrimp and making cocktails. The owners were very kind and called to see if we needed anything. The mattress was firm and the linens very comfortable. We enjoyed several late night movies on Netflix. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

                                                          A pleasant stay

                                                          My girlfriends and I were looking for a quiet nice home within and hour of Savannah and we came across this cottage. It was very quaint, spacious and a perfect place to get away in a peaceful setting. Beaufort is close by and a pleasant town. Thank you to the great hosts.

                                                          Beautiful home!

                                                          Lawrence W.

                                                          This cottage was perfect for my family and I. Situated mere minutes from Parris Island MCRD and beautiful historic Beaufort S.C. The owners were very accommodating and their response time was extremely fast. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to either attend a Marine Corps graduation or just to find a quiet and relaxing place to enjoy a family vacation.

                                                          Comfortable clean property centrally located in the heart of the beautiful village of Port Royal

                                                          We wanted a place that would give us the ability to easily explore the greater Beaufort area and Cozy Cottage provided 100% satisfaction in that regard. It is 10 minutes to Downtown Beaufort, even less to Parris Island and a very short ride to the sea islands of Beaufort County. Shopping is very close by as are a number of excellent restaurants of all types. Historic Port Royal is a friendly neighborhood oriented village with welcoming people. This property has all the feel of a true home away from home.

Walking distance to several restaurants including 2 pizza parlors, Smokin' Planks BBQ, Moondoogies- famous for their fried pickles and crab cakes, 1635 on the avenue and Mikki's Schoolhouse Diner. Take a 5 minute walk to Sands Beach, where you can fish from the pier, climb the observation tower and stroll the beach looking for dolphins or sharks teeth.
