Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms and 1 bath, with a huge fenced yard - adjacent to the Rail Trail!

**ALL of our houses remained high and dry through Irma! Beaufort is up and running and ready for business! COME ON DOWN!*** This is a precious little house built in the late 1940's. It has one king bedroom and one queen bedroom, sharing a totally renovated bathroom with a beautiful glass shower. There is a 40' HD flat panel tv in the living room, and another 32' in the den / laundry room. The dining room seats 6, and there is a full kitchen with all new stainless appliances. There is a full size front loading washer dryer in the den. We are trying to figure out the best way to screen them, but they are brand new and pretty nice looking, so until we have a better solution, they are being shown off! Consider it a quirk ...

The screened porch has upholstered seating for 4, and there is an outdoor patio and deck for dining al fresco! The huge fenced yard is filled with lovely old trees, nice and shady!

Since our FABULOUS Spanish Moss Rail Trail is just 4 houses away, we provide bikes and helmets and locks - and a detailed map showing additional 'back roads' to get you all over downtown and our wonderful historic district!

Our other houses are all downtown, but I think the serenity of this neighborhood will be much appreciated. Have a look at our other listings on VRBO to see what our guests think about the quality of our homes: #282865 and #326642.

This one is of the same quality, just in a different downtown neighborhood!

About Erica

We looked for 7 years - up and down the east coast - for just the RIGHT spot to move as soon as our son went off to college. We always came back to Beaufort!

Growing up in Florida, John and I spent 9 years in Houston then 23 in the DC Metro Area, where we raised our son, Ryan. It was the perfect place to raise him, but WAY too cold for us Floridians! When Ryan headed off to Syracuse (BURRRRR!) John sold his IT company and I told Marriott we were heading south. I continued to design hotels for a couple years, then we started buying our own properties and it has become a full time job renovating them and running them as Short Term Rentals. We meet the nicest guests and are having a great time! Ryan has since graduated and is a short drive away in much warmer Atlanta - and he now understands that you don't HAVE to be that COLD!

Since moving here we have become very active in this wonderful community and even introduced a Dragon Boat Festival! We just had our 2nd annual DragonBoat Beaufort Race Day in late July, bringing 28 teams (about 600 people actually on the water - a couple thousand spectators) to our glorious waterfront park for a great day of competition and FUN for a very good cause. DragonBoat Beaufort supports cancer survivors and supporters locally, in individualized ways, all over Beaufort County. You can see a great video - thank you to the Beaufort International Film Festival - at the end of the listings in the URL section. WAY COOL!!!!!

Anyway - we love Beaufort and can't wait for you to visit!

Erica purchased this house in 2014

Why Erica chose Low Country & Resort Islands

This house was just TOO CUTE to pass up!!!! Great location and great bones - it just needed to be totally gutted and redone. It's what we do ....

What makes this house unique

Proximity to the Rail Trail and Downtown - Perfect!!!

This little house is in Beaufort's prestigious Hermitage Neighborhood, just 4 houses from the Spanish Moss Rail Trail - currently 3.3 miles, eventually 13.6 miles - a 12 foot wide concrete trail on an abandoned rail line. It is a beautiful ride (or walk) to Battery Creek, the historic Depot, and all the way to Port Royal. It is also an easy back road bike ride to our historic district, the waterfront park, the grocery store, and all of the downtown restaurants and shops - and we provide the bikes!

This is our first Short Term Rental outside the Historic District, and I think it will be very popular. We have spent months renovating this cute little house, and we love the neighborhood with it's beautiful trees and close proximity to everything! We are just blocks from the Technical College of the Lowcountry and Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

Beaufort is a wonderful destination with a rich history surrounded on all sides by beautiful water. Our proximity to Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head makes it a convenient place to 'live' while exploring our beautiful lowcountry!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

This place can also be used for a lazy and relaxing destination - promise! It is the sweetest house in a perfect location. The owners have not left out a thing when considering what someone might need on a vacation. The bikes were a nice feature given the proximity to the trail. The dog bowls were a welcome addition since I forgot to bring some. The yard is big enough for a football game. The kitchen is fully equipped and definitely NOT with second hand stuff. I enjoyed that it was easy access to activities in every direction and the historic district was super close, but the house was a nice, peaceful retreat when needed.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

By far one of the best VRBO homes we have ever stayed in! From the moment we entered with beautiful music filling the well appointed rooms we instantly felt relaxed. The attention to details and quality of restoration is evident throughout. Even the smallest thing was well thouht out invluding craft chocolates left for us. Great big yard that the dogs romped and stretched out their legs after the long ride here. Two houses away from a wonderful bike and walking trail. Convenient to all the downtown areas. We will beback!

had the best time

  • 5 of 5

This house is just awesome.....everything you need....just walk in. Our fogs loved the huge fenced backyard. Beaufort is such a quaint little town with great places to eat! Old Bull Tavern, Saltus, Breakwater all exceptional. You're centrally located, an hour from Savannah or Charlestown. 45 minutes from Hilton Head Island. Starbucks is close too! Also go to The Chocolate Tree...it's delicious. I can't say enough about this place. Clean well kept and everything included. The owners are also very helpful and friendly. We can't wait to come back next year!!

Our Best Yet!

  • 5 of 5

Having spent several vacations in VRBO properties, I have to say that this is by far the best we've ever had the pleasure to experience. From the moment you walk in the door, every detail is perfect. The house is simply gorgeous inside and out, the neighborhood is quaint and quiet, the yard is very private, the beds are luxurious, and the linens are incredible. Proximity to the historic district is very convenient and we enjoyed day tripping from here as well with many attractions within 15-20 minutes. Perhaps our most notable amenity is the binder of local recommendations prepared by Erica (owner) complete with her personal comments that we found to be spot on. We arrived without an itinerary and simply used this binder to keep busy every day and to choose restaurants, all of which were delicious. We will be returning to this property the next time we need some "Low Country" relaxation! This place is deserving of six stars, excellent PLUS!

Great home in a beautiful town!

  • 5 of 5

Erica and John, provided us with an amazing experience at the rental property. The space was perfect and the everything was provided, you just had to bring your clothes and shower supplies. The check-in and check-out process was seamless. Although you are about an hour from the beaches at hilton head, the beaufort downtown area is beautiful and a must see experience.Thank you both for your hospitality!

Southern Charm Gem

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! The house is in great shape and very clean. The backyard is huge with plenty of space for the dogs to run around. And the location is perfect! I couldn't have asked for better hosts or house. The house comes stocked with everything you'll need from your morning coffee to day passes to the beach. There's four cruiser bikes that are perfect for the trail within a few yards of the house. My only suggestion is to bring bug spray. Just like any southern state the mosquitoes can get pretty bad but a little repelant does the trick. Overall we had an amazing time at this house and will be back again soon!
