Enjoy your morning coffee on one of two screened decks or the open air observation deck where you can see above the trees and out to the ocean. Take a leisurely stroll by the Intercoastal waterway, enjoy the brilliant colors of Carolina sunsets and the quiet, unobstructed views. The home is cozy and ready for friends and family to take time to enjoy the sweet life together. The queen bedroom has its own bathroom and TV. Twin beds in the second bedroom, sofabed in the living room and a double futon in the loft accomodate up to 8 people. Call or email us for more details today!

Guestbook comments from the owner
"We stayed in this house for a week and did not want to leave! We had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Thanks so much for the pet friendly home, it is great to be able to bring our dogs because they are a part of the family. We enjoyed Hunting Beach and trips into Beaufort. We do plan to return next year."

We love our home in South Carolina! Having family nearby, we share meals and good times together. We live in San Franciso, also a beautiful place, but when we go to our So. Carolina home, we simply feel the stress of the everyday life melt away no matter what time of year. We have spent all the seasons and all are equally beautiful. We love beachcombing, meeting and sharing a meal with our neighbors and lazing on the decks with a good book in the heat of the day. Family members visit and we take in the local catch of the day - the shrimp, clams, oysters and crab that our brother-in-law catches himself! We want you to enjoy our home as much as we do.

Debra Varner purchased this house in 2004

My husband is from So. Carolina and all his family is nearby. We knew we needed to have our own home to share with family and friends. We were fortunate to find this special place that brings such joy.

We love the food, beaches, shopping, neighbors and quiet that makes us feel rejuvenated at the end of a stay.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5
We loved being at the end of the road. Easy walk to the beach each morning to meet others walking their dogs. We enjoyed the week very much and hope to be able to go back next year.

Perfect Spot to Relax

  • 4 of 5
Our family of four stayed here for three nights and it was exactly what we were looking for. The house had everything we needed and was in a great location: short walk to the beach, quick drive to Hunting Island state park (the pass is a nice bonus), close enough to what we needed, but still quiet and secluded.
We were lucky to have nice weather for our stay and enjoyed all of our meals on one of the two screened in porches. The observation deck is a real treat, too. Amazing views, and a great spot for bird watching during the day and stargazing at night.
The owners were friendly and easy to work with. We will definitely keep this spot in mind for future vacations.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family truly enjoyed the house and its location. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. My youngest child said it felt like home. The breezes every afternoon was wonderful after a long day on the beach swimming or fishing. Everything was great. I have no complaints whatsoever and will definitely be back. Thanks for everything Debra!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great time here. It's a nice size with all of the amenities of home (television, fast internet, nice kitchen!). It's only a short walk to the beach and is very quiet at night. I wish it had been warmer so we could have enjoyed the porches, but they seem very nice as well. It was also great for us that the house is dog friendly! I would definitely recommend this house.

Had issues

  • 3 of 5
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Las Brisas. It is a nice, private location and must be at its best during the full moon when the tides are high - which is when we were there. It is a convenient walk to a nearby beach. We had a few issues which need to be corrected before we would return such as squeeky, uncomfortable beds, a broken outdoor grill, a broken ceiling fan, broken CD player, and an unlevel stove which made cooking difficult. The owner was traveling out of the country and was not available. Even though she did leave the phone number of a relative, but we did not feel comfortable reporting all these issues to him.

Owner's Response: Hey, Cathy. Thanks for letting us know about those issues. It's very helpful when our guests let us know what concerns they have about our home. We have a new grill since you left and the fan should be fixed as well. The beds, as I told you earlier are only a few years old, and I'm sorry if they disturbed your sleep. We'll have to see what can be done about that soon. The stove was not a problem for me when I was there earlier this year, but I will have that checked out as well. Older homes require constant vigilance and maintenance, as you may know. I hope you have a great summer! Best, Debra and Michael

Just a five-minute walk to the beach where you can dig clams, and oyster banks are plentiful. Swimming, kayaking, crabbing, fishing and strolling amongst the oaks are some of the ways you can enjoy the quiet life in the lowcountry. Explore St. Helena Island, Coffin Point Plantation, nearby Penn Center Museum and enjoy the local cuisine at the Shrimp Shack, Johnson Creek Restaurant/Bar on Harbor Island and Boondocks Restaurant just a short drive away. The scenery inspires you to slow down and enjoy the warm breezes during spring, summer and fall. You will have the pristine beaches to yourself during winter when it can be warm and clear. Hunting Island State Park and Lighthouse is just a 10-minute drive. After a few hours at the State Park, a visit to Beaufort, or a trip to Savannah, Hilton Head or Charleston, you will be happy to return to your quiet retreat. This is also the perfect place to read, write, paint or birdwatching. It also offers the best stargazing for your evening enjoyment all year long.

Notes:
Welcome to Las Brisas! This cozy home sits at the end of the drive and overlooks the serene beauty of the Carolina Lowcountry. No other homes to block your view of the natural preserve that you wake to each morning. Two screened porches, plus a third private observation and sunning deck with views of the ocean takes you above the trees and close to the open air. Enjoy your morning coffee listening to the birds, and your afternoon libation watching the deer quietly meandering through the marsh. You'll find the tranquility soothing and welcoming. We include the Hunting Island Year-Round Park Pass for your added enjoyment. Come and go to the beach as you wish.
