Overview

About the property

House, Dock with Pierhead, 3 Bedrooms,, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

A beautiful 2,500 sq. ft. custom built home located toward the end of a point on close to a half-acre of land. The house is nestled among the live oaks, cedars, and pines, and elevated, showcasing westerly views across the marsh and providing spectacular sunsets. The property features a 350 ft. dock across leading to deepwater (3 ft. min. at low tide). The dock has a pier head, providing plenty of shade, and a boatlift. See the shrimp boats off in the distance. You can fish, crab, and shrimp off the dock or go clamming at the nearby Coffin Point beach a short walk away.

The inside of the house is very spacious with an open floorplan and features dark hardwoods throughout and 10 ft.+ ceilings with cooling ceiling fans in all bedrooms and common areas. The layout is perfect for a family or couple wanting a lot of room and privacy, or two families vacationing together that desire their own spaces. Sleeps 6-8 (for a family including kids), but anything over 6 adults might be pushing it.

The main floor includes a vast, open floorplan with the living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as a half bath and the master suite. Expansive windows look out over the marsh and deepwater from every vantage point. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and the den has a flatscreen sony tv. A covered porch with breezy ceiling fans offers a shady spot to relax and sip morning coffee or watch the sun set. The master suite is huge, with plenty of room to lounge, relax, and take in the treetop views. The master bath features a double vanity and walk-in double shower to steam and relax after a day of outside play. The master closet is so large our young son likes to sleep on a queen airbed here and make forts.

The upstairs includes the other two bedrooms, a full bath, a common area, and laundry room. Each bedroom offers panoramic views of the outdoors. One bedroom features a queen-sized bed and flat screen tv, the other has two double beds. The common area is a great space for children to relax and includes a tv, dvd player, custom bookshelves, whiteboard, and futon. For those traveling with young ones and not a lot of car space, we have a pack and play, toddler potty, and air mattress to free up your car space.

There is plenty of covered parking under the house and uncovered parking on the driveway.

The property is a half-mile walk from a secluded beach on St. Helena Sound. Take the opportunity to dig up a clam dinner, surf, fish for redfish, or just swim in the calm warm waters. There is a horse farm nearby which offers horseback rides on the beach. Or your can just hang out on the porch or outdoor patio and watch the horses walk by. VERY relaxing. Grill up your catch on our BBQ or do a full-on oyster roast in our oyster pit. The flat terrain of the area is well-suited for joggers and bicycle enthusiasts.

Beaufort (with its shopping, dining, boating and cultural scene) is only a short drive (15 min.) away. Hunting Island State Park is just under a 10 minute drive from the property and offers plenty for wildlife/nature/beach lovers (while we provide a Hunting Island pass, the park is temporarily closed due to Hurricane Matthew repairs. We'll continue to monitor the updates (updated Jan 2017). There are many seafood restaurants for fans of fish, shrimp, and shellfish. Nearby farms offer fresh fruits and vegetables in season.

Why The Owner chose Saint Helena Island

We fell in love with the area -- the marsh, the oaks, the beach, the ocean, etc.. We love the relaxed lifestyle as well as the opportunity to fill our stomach with all types of seafood. This is a great place for people who like the outdoors. If you like fishing, kayaking, biking, golfing, swimming, boating, clamming, crabbing, shrimping, walking, jogging, horseback riding, relaxing, outdoor eating, shopping (nearby) then you'll understand why we bought in this area. Plus, the home is absolutely gorgeous. You really don't have to leave the property to have a good and relaxing time.

What makes this house unique

You can go crabbing and fishing off the dock. Enjoy the bbq and oyster pit. The home is very spacious with great views. All of the furniture is brand-new. There is even an outdoor shower. Flat-screen TVs and wireless internet are there for you to enjoy in any down-time. We are about a ten-minute walk to a secluded beach. The are numerous farms nearby offering fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as many seafood restaurants offering the catch of the day (you can be sure that it will be fresh and you can always ask).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, this house is amazing! The dock at sunrise is the most beautiful and peaceful place. My family has had a very busy year and this was the perfect place to unwind. Watching my family enjoying fishing...was worth every dollar. This house and this island feel magical..

Beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but a few changes would have made it SO much better !

• king size bed in master

•nightstands with lamps in master

•Refrigerator lighting working

•gas range easier to deal with

• comfortable seating in living area

• boat lift working

The setting was lovely! You cannot walk to the beach in 10 minutes! No Way! It’s a 25-30 minute walk and yes I’m in great shape!

We would rent again and yes the sunsets were incredible!

Enjoyed by our whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for our son's graduation from Parris Island and it was perfect. The familys ages ranged from 67 to 3 and there was something for everyone. We enjoyed the dock, the beach and the whole environment! It was so relaxing to sit on that porch after a busy day of events - we all loved that porch. Pam made the process so smooth and easy. All of the little touches were thought of here and it made the house seem like our home for a short period. Thank you so much for the use of your house and helping to make an important event for our family an even better experience. There has already been talk of returning for an actual vacation!
