About The Owner

We are local landscapers for over 30 years. This was our home until we purchased a track on land on the edge of town. Our garden center is on SeaIsland Drive just over the old bridge from downtown. We moved here for the beauty and water access. The history of Beaufort is so rich and is possibily the first settlement of europeans in the new world. Spanish Moss, Live Oakes, Palmetto Trees, and the rivers was breath taking.

Why The Owner chose Historic District

Location, Location, Location

Its close to most everything, shopping, dinning, waterfront, historic district, Parris Island, Air Station, and minutes to Hunting Island Beach. The Sands Beach is a shell beach just 3.5 miles away with a boardwalk and boat ramp connected. Beaufort's waterfront park is on the intercoastal waterway right downtown, just 2 minutes away!

What makes this house unique

This is a free standing home with its own driveway. A large deck is connected off the side and back for enjoying the outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is downtown Beaufort. Nothing states that its in the historical district. Its a nice little house in a good location. Its free standing with its own parking in a safe neighborhood.

We have taken the advice of a previous renter and performed a "Spring Cleaning": carpets upholstery,& etc.

Very cute little old house

  • 4 of 5

It served the purpose for our short time in Beaufort. The house is older and could use some updating. Shower heads have low pressure. The home owner didn’t really give any details to check out policy and had to call for Check in code on lock box. But over all our stay was great!!

Cute older home.

  • 4 of 5

The home was the perfect size for our trip. We had 6 adults that came for Graduation at Parris Island. The home is a bit older, but we had no problem with it. It was clean, and within 3 to 4 miles from the base.

Spacious home in need of a lot of TLC.

  • 2 of 5

Location is not as specified in the write up- it is not close to the downtown historic district as it is advertised to be. There are several items in desperate need of repair. Cleanliness of the home was not acceptable. Kitchen appliances are outdated and many do not work properly. With some updates, repairs and a good “spring cleaning”, it would be a nice place to stay.

Marine Corps graduation stay

  • 4 of 5

We had 8 people stay comfortably in the home and liked the area very much. It was great to be so close to the base for graduation. The only reason for the 4 stars was the outdated bathrooms and the exterior of the home in need of some cleaning. House was clean inside and linens and bedding were fresh. One suggestion would be to have some directions about trash pickup and final day cleaning, etc. Other than that it is a lovely property and would visit again.
