About the property

2 cottages- each having 2 bedroom, 1 bath, den and kitchen


**There are two separate cottages, calendar only allows room for one cottage, please ask me if it's available even if you see that it is not available on the calendar**

Periwinkle Cottages is a cute brick duplex located on the water side of Polk Village near downtown Beaufort, SC. Each side of the duplex has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a kitchen, and a den. Each side also has a front and back porch as well, with the front porches having a bit of a water view. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and the guest room has two twin beds. Dressers and closets are in each room. The bathroom is a shower/bath with a new granite sink and cabinet.

Each is fully equipped with linens and towels, kitchen supplies, TV and DVD player. It also has cable and wifi. The kitchen supplies include: toaster, blender, knives, mixing bowls, pots and pans, coffee maker, cooking utensils, etc. You will need to bring your own washcloths.

There have been numerous upgrades to this house, including a new AC/heating unit for each side, new floors, windows, kitchens, appliances, electrical, plumbing, backyard fencing, and paint inside and out.

There are two driveways for this property, one in front of the house on side A, and one off of the side on the house for side B. The side B driveway can also be used for RV or boat parking. The back yard is fenced in for those who choose to bring their dogs. -MUST clean up after dogs upon departure please and thank you!

**One small dog *UNDER 25 POUNDS* is welcome as well, NO CATS! Failure to abide by the dog size rule will result in termination of contract, as well as zero refund given. I *usually* consider two small dogs at my discretion, or even one bigger dog as I have done so in the past, so just ask! :)

This property is close to so much that Beaufort has to offer! Parris Island is a 10 minute drive, Port Royal is also a 10 minute drive. Port Royal has some amazing restaurants, shopping, and a small beach. Downtown Beaufort is a 5 minute drive with the waterfront park and Beaufort bay with the marina and all of the downtown restaurants and shopping as well. Lady's Island is just across the bridge from the waterfront park.

Hilton Head, SC is a 45 minute drive from the house, Savannah, GA is an hour drive, and Charleston, SC is about 45 minute drive also. There is so much to do in Beaufort, it always seems like you never have enough time to do it all!

Thanks so much!!

About E Baldwin

I am from Greenville, SC, and have always loved the low country of South Carolina. I fell in love with it years ago as a child. The history, the culture, the food... just everything is so amazing to me! Since I have lived here, I have had such a wonderful experience! I love being able to travel to Charleston, Savannah, Hilton Head with a short drive and see what all the low country of South Carolina has to offer! I am sure you will be pleased as well.

E Baldwin purchased this cottage in 2011

Why E Baldwin chose Beaufort

I bought this property because of the quality of the house, location and proximity to everything. I also purchased it because it was a duplex, so I could offer more room to visiting families (and for my family!)

What makes this cottage unique

This neighborhood is on the outskirts of any zoning ordinances. RV parking and boat parking ARE allowed! There are no HOAs either, which I like.

We stayed here while in the area to attend Family Day and Graduation at MCRB Parris Island.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really close to the base, an easy 15 min. drive. It was clean and well furnished. There was useful information about things to do in the area. We had some time to explore historic Beaufort and visit the beautiful state park on Hunting Island. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage with plenty of space and added bonus the pull out couch was so comfortable! Elizabeth was very responsive when my family found ourselves locked out after a long family day with our new Marine. Thank you so much for everything!

If you are coming for Marine graduation don't forget the Off; the sand fleas are terrible!

Beachy feel

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I have traveled and gotten a house instead of a hotel. There may not have been a pool but this was by far the best stay i have had. My 6 and 2 year old were able to run around in and out side and I didn't have to yell at them to be quite because it was OK for them to be a little louder since we weren't in a hotel room. I was able to make meals witch is great because my youngest hates eating out or on long drives. The lady next door said she come there every with her dog, she was as sweet as can be. The house had a beachy feel, colors were bright, everything had the aged look to it. I loved it, as did my family. It was also only 15, 20 min drive to Parris Island where my brother Graduated from. It was close but not to close. Enough out that we didn't hear all the traffic but in enough that everything was right there. If I had to go there again I would definitely stay there again

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed yourselves and were able to visit your brother's graduation so easily! I love that your kids were able to be kids and have fun during your stay. And yes, the location is what drew me into buying the property- so close to everything, yet quiet! Thanks again!
