Cozy 2014 renovated Cottage - less than 2 min walk to the Beaufort River

This is a new listing (February 2015) of our renovated cottage downtown Beaufort. Since this listing is new, we dont have any reviews yet to provide to you from our guests. But we also own listing number 470407 which was totally renovated in 2013. Please check out the reviews of the salmon cottage to get an idea how much we care about our guests and cottages. Please also check out the salmon cottage in case this one is already booked.

This cottage was completely renovated in 2014 / 2015 and is in heart of the National Historic District of Beaufort and only a 10 minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants and only a 2 minute walk to Bay Street and the Beaufort River. It is also only a short drive to Paris Island Marine Corps Station.

We offer place for up to 4 people. There is not a second bedroom but the couch in the living room is a sleeper and offers additional sleeping space.

The cottage also has a front porch with a wicker bench plus a little table and a back patio with patio furniture for relaxing in the evening.

We provide all linens and towels to our guests.

Internet / WIFI access is also available.

We also provide our guests with a passport to the Hunting Island State Park and Beach.

Since there is no land line phone in the cottage, a cell phone is a must for emergencies or to contact us during your stay for any problems or questions.

Parking is available in front of the cottage.

We take pride in our cottage, so we have arranged a cleaning service to clean after your stay. They will also wash and dry linens and towels and replace them for the next guests. The $50 fee is an addition to the rental fee.

We look forward to having you as our guest.

Petite Purple House

  • 4 of 5

This purple house is ideally located in the Historic District of Beaufort, a short walk from from anywhere in town a visitor would want to go. It's also convenient to several interesting bike outings, the best one being the Spanish Moss Trail. The view from the porch looks over to the Beaufort River, and sitting on the porch is one of the pleasures of being here. If I may, however, suggest, more comfortable seating would be nice; the current wicker couch is not too comfortable. That being said, for anyone traveling solo or as a couple, the petite purple house will serve you needs while in Beaufort.

Our stay in the Purple House

  • 5 of 5

The purple house is a small cottage but it was perfect for my husband & me. We enjoyed coming in from our sight seeing to the coziness of the cottage.

The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was just right.

It was an ideal location for us for visiting either Charleston or Savannah, not to mention all the places around Beaufort.

I loved talking with Nadine. She was such a joy to talk to & responded quickly & positively to all situations.

I hope we are able to stay there again if ever we find ourselves in the area.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at the Purple Cottage in Beaufort. We were able to park the car at the cottage and walk just about anywhere needed from there. The cottage is perfect for 2. It is cute and cozy and clean! Nadine is a great hostess and very helpful. I had texted her before our arrival for a suggestion to for a beach since Hunting Island is closed. Nadine suggested The Sands in Port Royal. It was the perfect place for us to unwind. Nice and quiet. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch at night sipping a glass of wine and talking about our day and our plans for the next. We highly recommend The Purple Cottage.
