Located at 1206 Pigeon Point Road in Uptown Beaufort, South Carolina
YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
Whether you’re vacationing, moving to Beaufort, or will be working here for an extended period of time, The Manhattan in our Tabby Townhome at Magnolia Court is your ideal Home Away from Home!
Built of the same tabby construction used by the Spaniards who established the first settlement in the area in 1565, The Tabby Townhome reflects an element of old-world history for which Beaufort is renown. We took care to preserve the solid tabby structure, during the complete renovation of the building -- adding architectural features, hand-hewn shutters, and draping window boxes to set a simple, yet classic, tone.
THE MANHATTAN SUITE
THE MANHATTAN is a ground-floor 2BR/single bath apartment. The great room includes a living area decorated in tones of brown, camel and blue. In addition to a sofa and two upholstered chairs, the living room has the standard coffee and end tables, desk (with secured Wi-Fi), ceiling fan, flat-screen TV. This is open to the adjacent kitchen by a breakfast bar with granite counter-tops. There is also a gate-leg table with hide-away stools should you wish something more traditional than the breakfast bar for dining.
The Manhattan has a king-size bed in one bedroom and two twins (plus a pop-up twin trundle) in the other. The bathroom is custom-tiled and has a deep soaker-tub, which is also outfitted as a shower. An alcove off the bathroom houses the washer/dryer and linen cabinet. You can enjoy a quiet afternoon respite on your private porch overlooking our large magnolia tree and its surrounding gardens.
If you need larger accomodations please also check out our 3BR, two bath Craftsman Cottage -- which is located right next door. It can sleep 6-8 people. It is also listed on VRBO/HomeAway at www.vrbo.com/710172.
Our Tabby Townhome at Magnolia Court provides a serene garden setting and quiet respite when you need to get away from it all. Located across the street from a bluff overlooking the Beaufort River, (part of the intra-coastal waterway along the Atlantic Coast), our large, lush front garden provides a welcome outdoor retreat to read, lunch, or just enjoy nature. And shading it all is our hundred-plus-year-old name-sake magnolia tree!
IN THE HEART OF BEAUFORT
But what really sets The Tabby Townhome at Magnolia Court apart is our location! You can walk almost everywhere from here!
We are in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet just around the corner from the Historic District, shopping and dining. The Tabby Townhome at Magnolia Court is across the street from a bluff overlooking the Beaufort River; one block from Pigeon Point Park with its hundred-year old oak trees, picnic tables, benches, brick walkways and swings; and literally just around the corner from the Historic District. The beautifully renovated Waterfront Park with its unique shops and great restaurants in just a 10-minutes walk.
Hunting Island State Park with its picturesque lighthouse, pristine beaches and tidal lagoons is only a 20-minute drive to the east — and we offer our guests a pass for FREE access to the park ( along with a rolling cooler, beach umbrella, towels, and chairs)! Parris Island and the Marine Corps Air Station are only a 10-minute drive. We're also centrally located for easy day trips to Charleston (about an hour north) and Hilton Head and Savannah (both about an hour south of Beaufort).
A half-mile north -- in the midst of this residential neighborhood -- is a public boat launch (and we have room on-site to store your boat/trailer). Go crabbing, fishing, or just relax and watch the beautiful sunset over the intra-coastal waterway. Beaches --- The Sands (in Port Royal, 10-minutes) and Hunting Island State Park (20-minutes) are an easy drive. The historic cities of Charleston and Savannah are approximately an hour north and south, respectively -- making Magnolia Court and Beaufort a great hub from which you can see it all. Parris Island -- the only military installation where both male and female marine recruits are trained -- is only a 10-minute drive away and, along with Friday morning graduation ceremonies, is accessible to the public for tours.
