About David Swetland

I lived in the area briefly in the mid-1980's and have made frequent trips to the area ever since. Several of my relatives live in the Bluffton/HHI area. I currently live and work in central Pennsylvania.

David Swetland purchased this house in 2014

Why David Swetland chose Low Country & Resort Islands

I have been visiting the lowcountry for more than 30 years. Several years ago I had the chance to spend a week in Port Royal and was hooked by everything it had to offer. In 2014, I took the plunge and purchased this place. I have done my best to create a place that I look forwarding to visit when I can. At present, however, I need to help care for my Mom who lives in Bluffton whenever I am in the area. While I am busy helping out my family, I am making it available as a rental.

Only 10 minutes from Parris Island

Much more spacious than pictured on VRBO. We left a piece of our heart in this house! After listening to hotel horror stories from fellow travelers, we thanked our lucky stars for having found this place; a true home-away-from-home with everything we needed and more. The neighborhood is peaceful and lovely, the owner professional and accommodating.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished, but more than anything it was VERY clean and exactly as described. The owner was very accommodating and extremely helpful. We researched properties prior to deciding on this one, and most of the other reviews were good. I don't understand how anyone could give anything but a positive review. YES, our stay was that good! Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here!

We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint and comfy house!

We rented this house to attend the graduation for our new United States Marine at Parris Island. We loved how close it was to the Marine base! It made going back and forth for the different events very convenient! David was readily accessible and answered any and all questions quickly! Thank you David for a great experience!

Beautiful Home in Lovely Port Royal

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home! It's a lovely house in quiet, walking-friendly Port Royal. Owner responded to requests in timely manner. All amenities were provided. Only "complaints" were the neighbor's dog that barked some mornings and the stiff twin beds in the downstairs bedroom (personal preference though). Also, the "master bedroom" is upstairs in a loft and does not have a door so sound carries and there is a small lack of privacy. Overall, my family was very pleased with our stay and would happily book this home again! :)

Beautiful place and better than the pictures can show! Conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

I Had a very nice stay in this rental property. One of the nicest ones I have stayed at. There was everything there provided which made for a nice convenience! The owner, David, was more than helpful with everything and always did his best to make sure the stay was going great. The location of this rental is very convenient to anything and everything in Port Royal and in Beaufort. I stayed here because I was wanting to visit Charleston and Savannah, and it is very conveniently located for these, 1.5 hrs to Charleston, 45 mins to Savannah. The pizza place, 4 Island Pizza, located literally within a 30 second walk is to die for and a must try while you stay here! As well as The Cracked Egg just up the main stretch. The house is very spacious as well. It ended just being my wife, my 15 mo. daughter and myself, and it was more than accommodating. I would stay here 10 times out of 10 every time I came.

Car: recommended

The house is located in the old village area of the sleepy coastal town of Port Royal, South Carolina. The local riverside beach, boat launch, pier, and observation tower are less than a mile away. This a very popular spot for walkers, joggers, fisherman, and lovely sunsets over Parris Island (see picture). If you like massive Live Oak trees covered with Spanish Moss, you won't find many places prettier than Port Royal.

The village has several good restaurants, frequent street festivals and concerts along Paris Avenue, and very friendly inhabitants.

The beautiful oceanside beach at Hunting Island State park is about 20 minutes by car. It is a popular (but remote) unspoiled beach with a cool lighthouse you can visit.

The Cypress Wetlands nature trail is a short walk away. This is a great place to see wildlife - with an abundance of bird species.

Downtown Beaufort with its grand Waterfront Park and shopping district is approximately 5 miles away.

Parris Island, with the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, is about 2 miles away - just over the bridge. Parris Island has an excellent museum.

Savannah, Georgia is less than an hour's drive. Charleston, SC is about 90 minutes away by car.

Hilton Head Island, though located just across Port Royal sound, is about a 45 minute drive
