This adorable home is a quirky little 2 bedroom 1 bath 1940's cottage located in the heart of Historic Downtown Beaufort. We have completed the addition of a beautiful, private, back yard patio. Duke Cottage is adjacent to our other property, Baby Charles, VRBO #282865. In the Spring of 2013 we renovated the Sarah Gibbes Barnwell House ca 1835. She is a 3 BR 3.5 BA beauty, just 1 block from the Waterfront Park! Have a look at VRBO #472201. We have just added our Health and Fitness Destination, #631501, just 4 houses from the Spanish Moss Trail in the Hermitage Neighborhood.
From this location, you can easily walk to our gorgeous waterfront park where there are lots of restaurants, galleries, and shops. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the ‘yacht parade’ on the Beaufort River, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. The Point neighborhood, filled with antebellum mansions used in the filming of many movies, is just 4 blocks to the east and a wonderful area for leisurely strolls.
Inside the house there is central AC (and heat), as well as whisper quiet ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms. It has a cozy living room with a 40' Sony Bravia flat panel TV, HD cable and a DVD player.
The kitchen is large and bright and has been completely redone with a glass top electric range, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, and a stacked washer/dryer unit. All cabinets and countertops are new, with a deep stainless steel sink and a pull down spray faucet. All pots, pans, dishes, glassware, flatware, and necessary gadgets are provided - as are small appliances like a coffee maker, toaster, blender, and a hand mixer. The kitchen is also stocked with staples such as salt and pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar - just to name some. We found a cute little 'nesting' table and 2 chairs for casual dining.
The Dining Room has large windows on 2 walls. The dining table is round glass and seats 4 comfortably. There is a lovely curved metal chandelier for ambience.
The master bedroom has a 2011 Sealy Posturepedic mattress and boxspring with 100% cotton high thread sheets and fluffy new pillows. ****Starting Fall of 2013 (after a month of travel around France) we are switching out all of our Queen bedding to white European Duvet & Shams during the cooler months - there will still be the high thread count sheets, but instead of our white cotton Matelassé Coverlets, now you will have a duvet cover and shams. These are washed and changed between guest. It's more work, but it as we discovered, it is a better sleeping experience!
The second bedroom has a single bed with the same mattress, except that it is a twin. We tried having a trundle, but it is too cramped to be comfortable, so the house is limited to 3 guests.
There is one bathroom, and while it isn't large, it is bright and fresh and comes stocked with plenty of 100% cotton fluffy towels. Amenities and a blow dryer are also provided.
The private patio has a dining table with 4 chairs and an umbrella, and 2 chaise lounges and a huge umbrella at the other end. It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

After growing up in FL and spending many years in Texas and Arizona - living in the Washington DC Metro area for 22 years was enough COLD weather for us. As soon as our son went to college, John sold his computer business and we headed to Beaufort! Now he focuses his energy on alternative energy and enjoying the outdoors. I still do Hospitality Interior Design for a major hotel chain, but also spend most of my time enjoying this gorgeous area. Our son visits as often as he can, as do our many wonderful friends. Life is good here in Beaufort!
Erica purchased this house in 2009
We bought this little house because it backs up to our other property, VRBO #282865. We love the location and the neighborhood, and we wanted to be able to offer additional accommodations! A year and a half ago we added VRBO #472201 - a spectacular antebellum home we just totally renovated! It is just 1 block from the Waterfront Park. We recently finished #631501, 1.4 miles from here in the Hermitage Neighborhood - by the rail trail!
Our guests comment that it is a perfect distance to the waterfront and Bay Street. They love being immersed in the history of the area and being able to walk to everything. It is just far enough to be away from all the weekend noise and traffic, yet still in the heart of it!
My husband and I visited Beaufort for the first time this March and found this cute little cottage perfect! I randomly rented through VRBO and couldn't be happier with the outcome! This little house is close to town, where I walked with my dogs every morning...
Beautifully kept interior...Erica and her husband have thought of everything you may need and more for a comfortable stay. The information notebook is FULL of facts, directions for anything around the area. Very quiet neighborhood..nice fenced in backyard. Can't wait to return!
Perfect location. Owners take great pride in the property and it shows. Many nice touches like auto-slow close toilet seats, vintage silverware, electric kettle and the best information notebook I have ever seen. It has everything you need to know and then some. They even share their BI-LO discount card with tenants. So glad they allowed our dog to join us because if the dog is not welcome we just don't want to go. This home is 850 sq feet of pure charm.
Everything you need is there! Walkable to town. Cute, cute! Super clean. Owners are terrific. Love that our dogs were so welcomed and that the patio was fully fenced. We hit a number of restaurants
and I think Saltus was the fav! All recommendations were very good. Hunting island is awesome as are the kayak tours!
This was the perfect place for us. The location could not have been better. The owners thought of every detail. We arrived in a raging rain storm and it was so nice walking in the front door with the lights on and classical music playing. There was even a welcome box of chocolates that were gone in less than a minute! The cottage is cute as a button and perfect for two or three people. It is spotlessly clean and there is no detail left out. Everything we needed was available for our use. The fenced in back yard was great. There is a Weber grill (which we used) and nice seating for relaxation. There was a binder with helpful information that we used nearly daily. The restaurant recommendations were spot on and I have to say that Beaufort has some top notch establishments. We fell in love with Beaufort (and the people) and hope to return very soon.
Super cute cottage. It was so nice to arrive to a warm house with all of the lights on, music playing and goodies for us to eat. It was very welcoming and inviting. The backyard was beautiful, private, completely fenced and absolutely perfect for our puppy to play in. It's very close to downtown so you have the option to walk or drive to wonderful restaurants, shopping, etc.
Every positive review listed is accurate. It is very easy to see that the owners take great pride in detail, as every single item is in its' place and comfort is the grand theme! Fine linens, towels, and kitchen comforts are the order.Even the restaurant recommendations are to a tee, as we did not find one single place that we found inaccurate. Erica and the great staff she uses are very accommodating and friendly as well. They manage 3 locations, 2 of which we saw, and we were really blown away by the detail and comfort level, and to find that these homes are only a few dollars more than local hotels, makes it a no brainer in the Beaufort area....We WILL return, and may perhaps become neighbors!
We are located in the heart of the historic downtown - lots to see and do all within walking distance! Our waterfront park is the lovliest on the east coast, and it is just a short walk from the house.
