A beautiful 2,500 sq. ft. custom built home located toward the end of a point on close to a half-acre of land. The house is nestled among the live oaks, cedars, and pines, and elevated, showcasing westerly views across the marsh and providing spectacular sunsets. The property features a 350 ft. dock across leading to deepwater (3 ft. min. at low tide). The dock has a pier head, providing plenty of shade, and a boatlift. See the shrimp boats off in the distance. For the fisher folk, you can go fishing, crabbing, and shrimping off the dock.
The inside of the house is very spacious and features dark hardwoods throughout, as well as 10 ft.+ ceilings with cooling ceiling fans in all bedrooms and common areas. The layout is perfect for a family or couple wanting a lot of room and privacy, or two families vacationing together that desire their own spaces. Sleeps 6-8 (for a family including kids), but anything over 6 adults might be pushing it.
The main floor includes a vast, open floorplan with the living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as a half bath and the master suite. Expansive windows look out over the marsh and deepwater from every vantage point. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and the den has a flatscreen sony tv. A covered porch with breezy ceiling fans offers a shady spot to relax. The master suite is huge, with plenty of room to lounge, relax, and take in the treetop views. The master bath features a double vanity and double shower to steam and relax after a day of outside play. The master closet would have made Imelda Marcos proud. It's large enough for a pack and play or air mattress (both of which we offer, for those traveling with little car space and little ones; also a toddler potty).
The upstairs includes the other two bedrooms, a full bath, a common area, and laundry room. Each bedroom offers panoramic views of the outdoors. One bedroom features a queen-sized bed and flat screen tv, the other has two double beds. The common area is a great space for children to relax and includes a tv, dvd player, custom bookshelves, whiteboard, and futon.
There is plenty of covered parking under the house and uncovered parking on the driveway.
The property is a half-mile walk from a secluded beach on St. Helena Sound. Take the opportunity to dig up a clam dinner, surf, fish for redfish, or just swim in the calm warm waters. There is a horse farm nearby which offers horseback rides on the beach. Or your can just hang out on the porch or outdoor patio and watch the horses walk by. VERY relaxing. Grill up your catch on our BBQ or do a full-on oyster roast in our oyster pit. The flat terrain of the area is well-suited for joggers and bicycle enthusiasts.
Beaufort (with its shopping, dining, boating and cultural scene) is only a short drive (15 min.) away. Hunting Island State Park is about a 10 minute drive from the property (we provide free passes) and offers plenty for wildlife/nature/beach lovers. There are many seafood restaurants for fans of fish, shrimp, and shellfish. Nearby farms offer fresh fruits and vegetables in season.

We fell in love with the area (the marsh, the oaks, the beach, the ocean, etc.) and finally bought after visiting for about five years. We love the relaxed lifestyle as well as the opportunity to fill our stomach with all types of seafood. This is a great place for people who like the outdoors. If you like fishing, kayaking, biking, golfing, swimming, boating, clamming, crabbing, shrimping, walking, jogging, horseback riding, relaxing, outdoor eating, shopping (nearby) then you'll understand why we bought in this area. Plus, the home is absolutely gorgeous. You really don't have to leave the property to have a good and relaxing time.
You can go crabbing and fishing off the dock. Enjoy the bbq and oyster pit. The home is very spacious with great views. All of the furniture is brand-new. There is even an outdoor shower. Flat-screen TVs and wireless internet are there for you to enjoy in any down-time. We are about a ten-minute walk to a secluded beach. The are numerous farms nearby offering fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as many seafood restaurants offering the catch of the day (you can be sure that it will be fresh and you can always ask).
Home was just as described if not better. Kids loved catching crabs and cooking them. Owner has stocked the house with almost anything you need to cook. Hunting Island was great. Beautiful beach that was not overly crowded.
The house is beautiful and the views are relaxing and peaceful. My family loved the house and the dock. We fished, crabbed, shopped, went to beach, and just hung out and relaxed during our stay. The owner was pleasant and easy to communicate with. The house was clean and cool, had just about everything we needed. We hope to return next summer.
This house was exactly as pictured. It is clean, spacious, well-maintained, and comfortable. The kitchen was beautiful, and we quickly figured out how to light the oven. We spent a lot of time on the dock watching the many fiddler crabs, fishing, and reading. The porch is relaxing and we made smores on the firepit. The sunsets were wonderful. It was perfectly situated for day trips to Savannah and Charleston (would recommend stopping by the Angel Oak Tree on the way back from Charleston), and we really enjoyed Beaufort, too. We loved Hunting Island State Park - thanks for the pass! We bought fresh, huge shrimp from roadside stands and cooked several wonderful meals in the kitchen. We and our 3 teenage children recommend this house to anyone and would definitely go back!
This home was a wonderful, peaceful home for a large family for vacation. There were a few minor maintenance issues (light bulbs, fans, iron, etc) but overall very clean and inviting. The biggest disappointment was that the river was so low, we couldn't even get to the canal leading to the dock, much less use the dock for the boat (our main reason for renting this location). We had to use a public ramp each day to fish and found it very difficult to ride or fish due to low water. Owner was very kind and made himself available at all times. I would recommend this rental to couples, not necessarily with young kids, as the location is so quiet our teens became very bored at times. We did ride horses, and we enjoyed going into Beaufort to shop as well. I think the water levels and the rain were our main issues. Otherwise, the home was beautiful and very relaxing!! Our kids had plenty of room to spread out and have a great time!
This house was perfect for our young family of 6. We brought our kayaks and got up each morning at 6:30 am and kayaked with our kids to the bay. We cast netted from the dock and caught loads of mullet and some shrimp. We caught many blue crab and a flounder from the dock. The location was perfect and our kids loved exploring the pluff mud at low tide at the private beach. The proximity was great to Hunting Island since that is where we spent every day. We will be back! The house is even better than the pictures!
What a nice place to stay! There were just the two of us, but the peace and quiet of this home were just what we needed. We took Morgan's advice and visited Grayco hardware for license and bait. We caught 16 crabs in two tries (and let a bunch of them go.) Fishing was slow, as you predicted. We loved the Dockside restaurant and found Boondocks to be very friendly with great food and very close to the house. The guys at Gullah Grub made shrimp and okra for us as a special request (they were showing the recipe on their TV when we went in.) Thanks for your hospitality!
