About patrick Simoneaux

My wife and i have been long time bluffton residents and raised our two children at this home. The children are grown now and we are semi-retired and live just a few miles away. With the birth of our first grandchild we have begun to spend more time back at the old homestead to enjoy family. All of our children's friends still love to come over when the house is not occupied to jump off the grand diving board they used as children.

patrick Simoneaux purchased this cottage in 1993

Why patrick Simoneaux chose Bluffton

The sunsets here are often photographed and published in local and regional magazines. The river is expansive and provides a low horizon to the west. and the best thing is ALL year long sunsets.

What makes this cottage unique

21 feet of water at high tide and no bridges to navigate, the May river offers excellent access to the calibogue sound and the ocean. Harbortown yacht basin is just minutes away.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

2nd year, same place

  • 5 of 5

This will be our 2nd year at this location. We booked it again in June due to the excellant location, quiet neighborhood, extremely cooperative landlord, and excellant accomodations. This will be our third year fishing with Papa Bear Charters on Hilton Head and this rental makes the entire trip a joy. The location makes getting anywhere in the Bluffton/Beaufort/Hilton Head easy. And the sunsets can't be beat!! You can be as active or inactive as you wish, there is a lot to do and see.

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the owner for accomodating us for an enjoyable family reunion. The home was clean with a beautiful setting on the May River. We visited Hilton Head, Savannah and Tybee Island but were happy to get away from the crowds, and enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the May River. The extra ice chest and mini frig was a bonus and nice to have available.

Mayriver Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful waterfront home on the may river and has everyone you need for a relaxing enjoyable stay. The sunsets are absolutely beautiful. Drinking coffee on the rear patio in the morning watching the dolphins swim by is a great way to start your day.

We had better luck catching fish off the dock than out in our boat. The owner is very easy to deal with and was available to answer any questions we had. We are local and have spent many vacations in the Florida Keys and other South Florida locations. This house is local and has everything and more without the travel. WE WILL RENT THIS HOUSE AGAIN! Great get a way!
