Beaufort House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

4 bedroom historic home in the heart of Downtown Beaufort.

This 4 bedroom, 3 bath historic home sits in the heart of Downtown Beaufort's prestigious 'Old Point'. Built in the late 1800's, this house is part of Beaufort's history, as it was once the Beaufort Aquarium. Unlike any other vacation homes in the area, our home is only 3 short blocks from the bay, as well as shopping, art galleries, restaurants and attractions of downtown. If you stay at 608 North Street, you will be in the perfect location to experience the best of Beaufort.

The home has been completely restored with a fully equipped kitchen, limestone tile, heart pine floors, new stainless steel appliances, and impressive antiques from Bali and Indonesia. The large master suite features a king bed, private bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a private sitting area. Two additional bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom has a pair of twin beds, and one double bed. Wireless internet and cable TV are included.

Three large porches provide great spots to admire the beautiful low country scenery and watch the horse drawn carriage rides pass. A short walk is Beaufort's newly renovated Waterfront Park which provides the perfect location for an afternoon of boat watching, fishing, and breathtaking sunsets.

For parents of Parris Island graduates, this house will provide a wonderful place for you and your family to relax and unwind before and after graduation. Located approximately 10 minutes from the Parris Island Gateway, our home offers a luxurious and spacious setting that is ideal for families of graduating Marines.

Hunting Island State Park, close by beaches and public boat ramps are all easily accessible, and Charleston, Hilton Head, or Savannah are close enough for day trips.

Staying at 608 North Street will truly be an experience that cannot be matched by a hotel, condo, or any other rental home. We appreciate your interest, and please email or call for more information!

About Elizabeth Christmus

Hello! We are a couple from nearby Columbia, South Carolina who fell in love with the Beaufort area a long time ago. We were lucky enough to come across this beautiful home in Downtown Beaufort in need of renovation! It took longer that we had anticipated to restore, but was well worth the effort. This is truly a one of a kind property that we love to share with other families!

Elizabeth Christmus purchased this house in 2003

Why Elizabeth Christmus chose Beaufort

Beaufort, SC has always been a place my husband and I would visit with our family. Our parents took us here when we were children, and we brought our children to Beaufort when they were young. We don't care for the 'touristy' locations that are so crowded in SC, and we love the beauty, history, beaches, etc. in Beaufort.

We chose to purchase this particular home because we love to restore historic homes, and this home we could not pass up! This home was built around the turn of the 20th century, once the old North Street Aquarium years ago. It was so beautiful and in a great location being within walking distance of the water, shops, etc.

We had to replace porches, walls, ceilings ..... this was quite the renovation project, but with a lot of work and time we were able to renovate the home to the beautiful state it is in now. This home is truly one of a kind and a part of Beaufort's history, and we are glad that we can share this with you!

What makes this house unique

Staying in our home, you will have a vacation experience like none other in Beaufort. Our home is different than any other home in the area and a part of what makes historic Beaufort special.

Our home has three porches where you can relax, enjoy the breeze, read a book, or watch the carriage tours pass by.

Our home is within walking distance of everything downtown. Our family loves to take walks around dusk and watch the sunset over the water. You can have morning coffee at one of the cafe's on the street as you walk to waterfront park. You can shop, eat at the restaurants, tour historic Beaufort... all without having to drive anywhere. This house is one that you will find truly special!

Excellent Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a quick "get-away" and this house was perfect! We found the house to be very clean and beautifully decorated! It had everything you could possibly need. It was within walking distance to the waterfront and all the restaurants and shops! We have already made plans to come back to this house in the spring! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Parris Island Marine Corps Graduation

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this house for ours son's USMC Graduation at Parris Island. The house is very close to the Marine Corp Depot and we were on Parris Island within 10 minutes.

The rooms are every large and I was surprised at how big the kitchen was. The home was large enough for 11 people and we would definitely stay at this home again. Our favorite place was the large living room where the entire family watched movies on the big screen tv.

The owners of the house are very nice and will be available to help with anything they can. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend.

We didn't get to enjoy the outdoors because of the rain and humidity, but we loved the indoor porch.

We stayed here 3 years ago for our Marine's graduation and it was fabulous! Our extended family was able to stay with us and we were able to share big family meals. The location is perfect for getting to Parris Island and we stayed a whole week, taking advantage of nearby Charleston and Savannah.

Great location for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

It had been 12 years since my brother, sister, and I had been together; the last time being at our mother's funeral. It was long past time for us to get together so on June 20th of this year the three of us with our spouses spent a week in Beaufort, SC in this historic home. This home was perfect for us. Location is fabulous, easy to walk to restaurants, shops, and several tours of the area. Private parking right across the street made it easy to get to our cars so we could head to the beach, museums, and remote restaurants.

House was very well kept and maintained; even had modern technology (WiFi, TV, kitchen appliances, etc. yet still had a historic touch to it. As we were driving to Beaufort we received a call from the owners advising that the house had been cleaned and we could arrive a little early if desired; and we did just that!

I would say the listing description and photos were accurate, yet we found the place to be even nicer. When I made a reservation I was contacted by email and phone by the owners who made me feel very comfortable about choosing this location. As the date of our arrival got closer they maintained contact with us to be sure we didn't need anything more, and they even contacted us after we checked in to make sure we were satisfied.

Beaufort and the surrounding area is fabulous, strongly recommend you consider it for a vacation. The area has a fabulous history to it, a history to be proud of. The beach is a 15 minute drive away as are some great restaurants. We enjoyed the Dockside Restaurant so much we had dinner there 3 nights. Also enjoyed several in downtown Beaufort; one night had take out from Q on the Bay and another we grilled steaks on the grill outside. And the carriage ride through the city is well worth the cost.

My siblings had to leave a couple of days earlier than we did. As my wife and I left the house we both hated to leave. This is our second year in a row to vacation in the Beaufort area, would love to come back next year, and rent this house again.

A Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

We've made staying at this lovely property a bit of a family tradition. My Son-in-Law's family stayed there for his wedding to my step-daughter in 2009, later that year my family stayed there for my wedding, and we recently stayed again for my second step-daughter's wedding.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. The owners are wonderful to work with - for our last trip they were incredibly flexible when we had to change our dates at the last minute. The location is fantastic, with shopping, dining, and the waterfront park all within a short walk. The house is roomy and comfortable. You have places to gather together or the upstairs veranda is perfect for slipping away to read or take a nap.

The listing and photos for this property are very representative, but don't really do the house justice. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays and would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Beaufort.
