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 Port Royal

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.

Fantastic! A comfortable and welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable and welcoming home that is well kept and larger than it looks. The owner was prompt in answering the questions i had before booking. This is about 10 min from Parris Island with traffic...perfect for graduation. Our Marine was glad we rented this and was happy to spend the night here....well worth the $ which was less than a hotel. Nice quiet neighborhood too. đź’–?đź’–?đź’–? this place!

Lovely property which is very convenient to Parris Island.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly charming and met our every need. It's also just minutes from Parris Island if the purpose of your trip is a graduation. After booking, I had to make some changed to my trip and the owner was very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Perfect house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay to see our nephew graduate as a United States Marine! The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. It had everything that we needed and more! The neighborhood was very peaceful and we loved walking around exploring. If you get the chance, walk over to the watch tower. The view is breathtaking! David was very easy to work with and answered all questions. We are definitely planning on a return trip in the future to explore the area more! If we could give it more than 5 stars, we would!

Very charming home in a convenient location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the privacy of staying in a home vs. a hotel . We were there for our son's Marine graduation. It was very convenient to the base. The pizza place around the corner was very good. The owner David was very helpful. The surrounding area was very charming and convenient to several restaurants and some shopping. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again if we are ever in the area!

Cute and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental while in SC for our son's Marine Corps graduation. The house is located very close to the base which made travel time quick. The beds are comfortable too. The house is clean and has plenty of dishes and pans for home cooking.

The second floor bedroom is nice and has a large bathroom. While you have complete visual privacy, because of the open concept of the second floor, there isn't any audible privacy. People down stairs in the living room or kitchen can hear everything happening or being said on the second floor and vice versa. That was the only drawback, but it wasn't a big enough deal for me to be disappointed with our stay.

I would definitely recommend this rental.

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
