The house is conveniently located in the Old Village of Port Royal, the heart of the town’s historic district.

You can find antique and consignment shops and an eclectic mix of restaurants and coffee shops along Parris Avenue. The streets in this area are all named after the capitals of countries who, at one point or another, tried to claim the area. Visitors will stroll along London (where the vacation house is located), Paris, Madrid and even Edinburgh Streets.
A short walk from the house takes you to The Sands and Boardwalk, Port Royal’s own beach for stunning Battery Creek views. The Sands Beach, with its extensive long wooden pier and small sandy beach, is a popular spot for amateur archaeologists to dig for shark's teeth and other seaside treasures. A tower is also located on site, which is open for climbing visitors, and presents exceptional views of the Port Royal landscape. You can enjoy the public beach and climb the observation tower for spectacular panoramic views of the water, marshes and Parris Island. The Sands has a public boat launch if you want to bring your boat.
A one of a kind hidden jewel, Port Royal combines genuine southern hospitality and living with street music events and festivals, shops, restaurants, the Sands Beach, Cypress Wetland Preserve and much more! A picturesque coastal town that offers miles of views, entertainment and postcard-perfect charm!
If you can tear yourself away from Port Royal, a 10-minute drive will find you in Beaufort where you can explore quaint shops, art galleries, book stores and a variety of cares, bistros, coffee shops and fine restaurants. Shop along Bay Street, lunch at one of the waterfront restaurants and enjoy the spectacular views of the Beaufort River.
Traveling 30 min. from Port Royal is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in South Carolina, Hunting Island State Park, a 5,000 acre park with 3 miles of natural beach. Charleston, SC and Savannah, Georgia are located approximately an hour from Port Royal.
