About the property

Minutes Away From Bay Street In Beautiful, Historic Beaufort

If you are looking for new and modern this place might not be for you but if you are looking for cozy and comfortable then look no further. This quaint cottage is minutes away from Bay Street in beautiful, historic downtown Beaufort and Parris Island which makes it perfect for Parris Island graduate families or any vacationer. It is located on the Albergotti Creek with a private dock and pool. Bring your fishing gear and fish off our dock, go crabbing, or just relax and watch the egrets and dolphins. Beaufort is home to one of the largest collection of antebellum homes in the country. Come see why Hollywood has chosen Beaufort for the filming of numerous movies including Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, and The Great Santini.

Because of the ideal location you can visit the nearby beaches of Hunting Island State Park, Fripp Island, and Hilton Head Island or take a trip to the historic cities of Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC. All of our previous guests have said that 'Kim's Kottage' is even more amazing than the pictures reveal. So come join us for a couple of nights, the week, or even longer.

Kim's Kottage

  • 5 of 5

We went to Beaufort, SC with friends to celebrate our 44th anniversary. We stayed at Kim's Kottage and we could not have picked a better place! The cottage is adorable, warm and welcoming and Kim and Rod are so easy to work with! We enjoyed crabbing from their dock and just relaxing at night. They provided almost everything we could need and were just a text away if we needed anything. We will DEFINITELY come back!

Beautiful views, cute Kottage, close to good food, and the Marine base

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The Kottage was great, the views/dock were amazing, and y'all were awesome. I am so glad Irma didn't mess these plans up. Thanks for the card you left for our Marine. He was so grateful, & we thought that is was over & beyond. We'll definitely be back!!!

Everything we could hope for.

  • 5 of 5

Kim's Kottage was exactly as it appeared on the site. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay so much that my wife wants to move to Beaufort now. Kim also, provided an extremely thoughtful extra. Knowing we booked the trip to watch our son graduate from US Marine Corps boot camp at Parris Island, Kim had a congratulatory card with a monetary gift inside, waiting for my son when we arrived. Best trip we've ever taken and if we don't move to Beaufort, I'm sure we'll ask to book Kim's Kottage again.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived just as the Blue Angles air show was ending at Marine Corps Air Station. Traffic was a mess. By the time we unpacked the car and looked around the property, the traffic was cleared and we never again gave it a thought. The house was completely furnished and clean, the fenced yard was perfect for our Golden Retriever, the view from the back deck across the yard and down the dock was breath taking. This was our first visit to Beaufort with a pup and we found this to be the friendliest dog town ever. After visiting downtown returning to the property provided the relaxed atmosphere and comfort we hoped for.

A word to any boat owners that might be considering this property... heed the owners cautions about the tides. We're from the Chesapeake area and 9 foot tides are not the norm here. That said, the changing views provided by the changing tides just added to the attraction of sitting on the back deck at sun down.

This was our 21st VRBO rental and one of the nicest. We'll be back.

Why Kim Tillotson chose Beaufort

We loved the fact that it was secluded in a small, quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac; on the river with a dock for boating/fishing/crabbing; minutes from downtown Beaufort; close to beaches; short driving distance to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA

What makes this cottage unique

Private pool; Private dock; Large fenced in yard for pets to roam
