Very beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our family for 5 nights around New Years. The pictures of this home are nice, but in person it is stunning!

The view from the great room area is so beautiful. The back yard and dock were perfect for our family to keep busy.

There was 8 of us and we had plenty of space, we never felt crowded. The rooms were perfect size. The fireplace was nice to use on our cold nights.

The house was furnished with everything we needed.

The bedrooms were perfect.

Would love to come back when warmer to use the porch more and enjoy the outdoors. Dolphins visited everyday. If you want to charter a fishing boat, Cast away charters was real good.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I have to say that dealing with Chris was a wonderful experience. She answered all of my questions with great detail. The home is exceptionally clean and equipped with more than you could imagine. The detail in the character of the home is something that you would see in a coastal living magazine!! The colors, lighting, furniture and layout make for a very cozy stay. The view from the porch was one that can't be put into words but is a must see. We spent early mornings watching the sun rise, afternoons fishing and back on the porch in the evenings to watch a beautiful sunset. We are very blessed to have found such a charming home to vacation in and I look forward to our next stay!!

Our group had an amazing stay. I would highly recommend this Home to anyone who is wanting to stay in Beaufort and have a great view of the water. The home itself was incredible. No details were left out when building this home. A ton of character. Thanks guys for allowing our crew to stay. We hope to return soon!

Truly paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, private, perfect for a family gathering. The house was clean, comfortable, well stocked with anything you'd need in terms of pots/pans/kitchen appliances. The setting is so peaceful, very private with just a handful of quiet neighbors that aren't too close to encroach on the private setting. Wonderful pier, and we saw dolphins every day there. Could not have been more perfect (except perhaps to have been able to stay longer). Highly recommended.

This property was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was better than abvertised! My family loved the location (quiet and serene), the dock (fishing and chilling by the water with a glass of wine at the end of the day was wonderful), the porch (reading there in the morning with a cup of coffee was a daily occurnace), and the house overall. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, play games, watch movies, and socialize. The beds were super comfortable and the house was beautifully appointed! We will definitely come back next year. Thanks for a great stay in your gorgeous home. We were lucky to have been able to stay there!

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and serene spot. Gorgeous sunsets and a full moon made it even more special. We spent lots of time on the pier, front porch, screened porch. Even the few rainy days were fun. Crabbing was decent. Fishing less so as we only caught small sharks. That may have been related to our lack of experience fishing this area..

The house had everything we needed and more. Wish we had more time to explore all the books, games, puzzles. And agreed a month would be good to allow time to really explore the area.

Bought shrimp that we cooked most nights. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Also had great lunches at the Shrimp Shack.

The upstairs was a perfect set up for our daughter, son in law and one year old grandson. And the house was so comfortable for all of us. It was a perfect choice for our family to get together for the week. We came from East coast, West coast and Midwest. We left wishing we had a full month, or at least another week! (BUT, thankful for the fabulous week we did have!). Also appreciated the scurrying done to get the pier completed before our visit. It was a favorite spot for all to sit..

The owners have made this such a special place. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy it. We loved it. The stay could not have been better. Surpassed our expectations!
