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.

  • 4 of 5

This location is in a great spot in Beaufort. There are so many things to do close by. It was a great price. We really enjoyed visiting Hunting Island and going to downtown Beaufort. Everything we needed was available at the house. I really appreciated that.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Completely charming cottage. The pictures shown are exactly the way it appeared. The house was roomy enough for 6 people. Very conveniently located, approximately 3-4 minutes to downtown Beaufort. Quiet neighborhood. The deck off the house was great for early morning coffee. The beds were clean and comfortable. The house may have been a bit dated, but in my opinion, that was part of its charm. I would absolutely book this house again and hope to next year. Host was great and very responsive to any questions I had. Hope to visit again next year. Thanks for a great vacation!!

Nice stay

  • 3 of 5

We liked the home. Was supplied with everything we needed. Just had to call for the code. Just had some safety issues. One of the floorboards in between living and dining area was loose and on the patio there was a board not nailed down(nails sticking way out) and we had our 1 1/2 yr old granddaughter with us. Other than that, it was a nice stay. Friendly neighborhood.
