About Elizabeth Jenkins

Hi we're Elizabeth & Dennis. After spending most of our life in cold weather climates (Wisconsin & Maine), we retreated to Beaufort, South Carolina after discovering it on a road trip. Now this has been our home for the past 12 years. Elizabeth is a semi-retired chef, and Dennis a semi-retired pharmacist and small business owner. We love living in the Lowcountry because of the natural beauty, the weather, the boating and the food. Beaufort is a little slice of heaven and we know a stay at Little Chill will introduce & seduce you to the wonders of this special place nestled on the Intercoastal Waterway.

Elizabeth Jenkins purchased this House in 2014

Why Elizabeth Jenkins chose Port Royal Landing

We chose our two side by side vacation homes due to the location and super neighborhood. We are literally five minutes to Parris Island, downtown Beaufort, Sands beach, Publix, and Spanish Moss Trail.

What makes this House unique

The design and decor of this house make it unique in the market. If you like "style" this is your place. Literally all of our guest have been awed by the house and asked the owner to help design their homes.

The three Bedrooms and Baths made it very convenient for the early morning trips to Parris Island. The short commute made the trip much easier.

                                                                  My wife discovered the shops in Beaufort.
