About Philip LaFountain

My wife and I are originally from Northwest Ohio and we have 2 boys. I joined the Marine Corps in 1992 and attended recruit training right here at Parris Island. At the time, I was completely unaware of how beautiful this area was. The Marine Corps brought us back to Beaufort, SC in 1999, where I served as a Drill Instructor on Parris Island for 3 years. My wife and I fell in love with the town for its beauty, history and simple life style. I actually proposed to my wife on the front porch of this home. After many more moves with the Marine Corps, we were finally able to move back to Port Royal 3 years ago.

Philip LaFountain purchased this House in 2000

                                                              We had a great time. House is very close to the base if you are attending boot camp graduation.

                                                              Rebecca M.

                                                              The house is very nice and the street it is on is quite lovely. There are front and back porches which are great for relaxing outside. The only drawback is the lack of a comfortable bed in the downstairs bedroom.. just a little too hard for comfortable sleeping.

                                                              Perfect place for Marine graduation stay

                                                              Patty F.

                                                              I am so glad we chose this place to stay when we went to Parris Island to see our son graduate from Marine bootcamp. We needed to be on the island very early on two different days and this house is an easy 10 minutes from the base, which made it so easy to get back and forth to the island.

                                                              This house had everything you could need. We preferred to not eat out every meal and all the kitchen appliances/pans/utensils/coffee pot, etc.were provided so I didn’t need to bring anything but buy our food (they even had all the condiments). It was perfectly comfortable for our family of 5 and was very clean.

                                                              This was so much better than a hotel. We stayed for an extra day to spend time with our Marine and we were able to cook food and sit around comfortably talking and even watched a movie as a family. I would highly suggest renting this house for your graduation week!

                                                              This place was perfect for our family to stay for our daughter's graduation on Parris Island.

                                                              paul c.

                                                              This cute little house was a great choice for our family to stay. Nicely remodeled downstairs with great appliances and all the cooking utensils you would need . It is a few minutes away from Parris Island for graduation. There is a great pizza place just a couple hundred yards down the street 4 Island's Pizza. The walk down by the pier and the tower was beautiful at sunset. We only wish we were there during the summer instead of the week of the ice storm. Highly recommended.

                                                              Thanks Paul Chapman

                                                              Charming bungalow perfect for visiting Parris Island

                                                              Cozy and well maintained home in Old Port Royal. You’ll love the quaint neighborhood of homes with old time front porches and lots of character. Owners were quickly responsive to our needs. Highly recommend for families visiting Parris Island as the home is a quick 10 minute trip to the base.

                                                              Very nice accommodation in a great location!

                                                              We had a fantastic time! There were toys in the closet for my daughters to play with, plenty of creature comforts and we can’t wait to return...

                                                              Perfect Charmer

                                                              Great place. It's as good as the pictures show. Plenty of room and ample privacy for everyone. Terrific kitchen with gas range and well-stocked with quality items that made meal prep easy and comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer. Plan to bring your own soaps, shampoos, etc. as those are not provided.

                                                              Our home is located in the Village of Port Royal. Walking distance to several restaurants including 2 pizza parlors, Smokin' Planks BBQ, Moondoogies- famous for their fried pickles and crab cakes, 1635 on the avenue and Mikki's Schoolhouse Diner. Take a 5 minute walk to Sands Beach, where you can fish from the pier, climb the observation tower and stroll the beach looking for dolphins or sharks teeth.
