4 ACRE GRAND ESTATE BY THE OCEAN

St. Helena Island Estate Rental Photos and Description

3 Master Suites, 3.5 Bath Southern Equestrian Estate

This brand new rental estate feels more like a private home than a rental property as it welcomes you to the Magical Oaks of Coffin Point. Walking distance to Saint Helena Sound, a beach where you can ride horses all year long, just minutes from Hunting Island State Park and fifteen minutes form historic Beaufort, at Magical Oaks you step back in time but with everything you'll need to enjoy life at it's finest.

Here you will find peace in the pristine preserve of the Maritime forest, a majestic and historic land of Beaufort County.

Magical Oaks is a place to relax into a slower lifestyle where you can feel the tension of everyday living unwind and the passion of life and well-being re surge.

Nature nourishes the spirit as you walk among the majestic live oaks and Spanish moss that surround this lovely home. It seems be a custom here to retire in the evenings to the upper decks with zero gravity chairs to relax in your own private observatory and star gaze late into the night! If you listen you can hear the gentle waves and fall asleep under the most beautiful stars that you have ever seen!

Magical Oaks is a bit of heaven on earth, like a secret and comfy hide-away that fills the senses with peace and tranquility. The clean lines and soft colors blend with the nature that surrounds you and the home is graced with walls of windows so that you can enjoy the gift of nature from inside and out. The spacious covered decks are designed to lounge with your friends or to bask in the solitude of nature accompanied by your favorite book, cup of tea or glass of wine - rain or shine.

No more pulling straws for the master bedroom! There are three master suites and each one has a full bath and multiple deck access making privacy and comfort a standard of experience for every guest.

The fully equipped chef's kitchen is a delight with two ovens, two ranges, two dishwashers etc. for those who want to entertain or just love to cook. If you want to leave the cooking to others you can call in or dine out. From fine dining to casual eating, the local restaurants serve up fresh-caught seafood and local produce from neighboring farms and docks.

This equestrian estate is located just 20 minutes from historic Beaufort, SC, one of America's most charming art towns with plenty of artists who call Beaufort home.

Here you can enjoy the many restaurants along the water as well as the rich southern history and architecture on one of the many walking or horse drawn carriage tours.

Outside of our gates in our quiet residential community, it's just a short walk under a majestic canopy of Live Oaks and Spanish moss to a natural beach where the old wood forest meets the shore, a shore that is manicured only by the ocean. Enjoy a walking and exploring meditation to the sights and sounds of birds, dolphins, and waves rippling over thousands of shells. This is a protected and natural Oyster shore lined with trees and teaming with sea life for exploring, clamming, shelling and hiking.

Just 5 minutes away you will find Hunting Island with pristine beaches for swimming, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and a variety of fishing from seashore to pier options. Hunting Island has over 5000 acres of natural Palmetto and Pine forest, marsh views, tidal creeks, and abundant wildlife that is becoming more and more rare along our developed coastlines. The Hunting Island lighthouse is accessible to the public and the Park naturalists and the Audubon society offers educational nature programs suitable for all ages.

For boaters there are several local landings within minutes of Magical Oaks and plenty of land for you to bring your own boat and trailer on vacation!

Golfing is also a favorite with several local options and Beaufort is also conveniently located between Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. Upcoming events include: International Film Festival -February; Spring Tour of Homes-March; Soft Shell CrabFest- April; Taste of Beaufort Food Fest & Gullah Fest-May; 10 day Waterfestival-July and ShrimpFest-October. Not to mention PGA -Heritage Golf Tournament at Hilton Head, in the spring. Fifteen minutes from Port Royal.

If you are an equestrian or just love horses you may also feel the calling to join others on horseback from our neighboring Camelot Farms, an equestrian center where you are welcome to board your horses or ride theirs and take trail rides on the beach. The horses in the pictures are from our winter residents. Life just doesn't get any better!

About Barbara Alexander

We left the corporate world several years back and created a life that brings us even greater joy - it just doesn't get any better than this!

Ralph is an avid golfer and Barbara's love is horses and her life affirming work with women in retreats.

Barbara Alexander purchased this estate in 2012

Why Barbara Alexander chose St. Helena Island

We bought this home after falling in love with Beaufort and coming on vacation to Fripp Island. We found Magical Oaks, a hidden garden on four private acres of flowering trees and some of the most beautiful (Like in the movie Avatar) ancient oaks that I have ever seen. This sweet little community is a sanctuary for wildlife on a barrier island at the outermost coast of the eastern shore.

Something very special was here and we could feel it the first time we walked into this home.

It felt like a happy home and that much joy would be had here.

This was the perfect property for meditation. The perfect setting to create this special feeling that you get when you experience heaven on earth, where nature is still pristine and not overdeveloped.

What makes this estate unique

The views from this home are beautiful through arched doorways and 28 foot wall of windows.

The kitchen was designed by a master chef with stainless steel and copper counters, inlaid island and handmade cabinetry from old wood.

The home is as majestic as the ancient live oaks that lead you into the driveway where you truly feel like you are going back in time to an old southern mansion with all the modern amenities of home.

This is not your typical 'rental house' with miss matched dishes and too few forks and knives. Everything is set up for comfort and ease like you would have in your own home.

The house feels brand new with comfortable beds that have 1000+ Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy comfortors, plentiful closet space, towels that are thick and luxurious... Even has quality cutting knives, serving pieces, quality pots and pans - something we noticed was missing in past rentals. We tried to think of everything to make your stay comfortable.

What makes this really unique is the private paradise that you will find yourself in. There are beautiful resort islands filled with tourists and then there are secret little natural gems tucked away, offering something special that you can't find anywhere else in the world.

Milli0n Dollar Mansion

  • 5 of 5
Location was accurate. Listing photos need more detailed photos of all the interior stairs. Two of our party fell on the stairs; stairs to upper bedrooms had no risers--that was a problem. Property was clean, well/maintained. Owner was helpful. We would recommend this property. We recommend Hunting State Park, downtown Beaufort, Johnson's Creek Tavern, the drive in movie, Plums restaurant,Publix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing Magical Oaks and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. I am also glad to have talked to you both after I read your review, we want everyone to have a wonderful time there! Our home was designed with a beautiful open staircase but it is not suitable for anyone with poor eye site, physical dissabilties or injuries making stairs difficult. We will be sure to put a picture and information on our listing. Thank you again for sharing how much you enjoyed the deck and the surrounding area, restaurants etc, it is one of our favorite places ever and we do hope to see you again soon!

Gorgeous and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home on St. Helena Island was the perfect home base for our week of exploring the South Carolina coast! It is centrally located for easy day trips to Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head Island - all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The best days were the ones spent closer to "home" either kayaking from Hunting Island or shopping and eating in the lovely town of Beaufort. Magical Oaks is beautifully decorated and appointed with all the comforts of home. The back porch was our favorite spot in the evenings. The neighbors are friendly and the oyster beach at the end of the road is the perfect spot to catch a sunrise. I would absolutely recommend staying in Barbara's lovely home. She was a dream to work with!

Great place to relax in and to sightsee from.

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for 8 nights. This home is custom built with high end finishes and plenty of useable space. It has a kitchen that was meant to be used, including 2 dishwashers. Several in our family were not feeling well, so we gave the kitchen a good workout. We never had 2 dishwashers before, and it makes cleanup much faster. Three master suites. Very comfortable couch and beds. Central to many areas for day trips. Barbara was a pleasure to work with.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had such an enjoyable vacation on St. Helena Island. First Barbara's home is lovely. The house had everything you could need and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed going to Hunting beach and also Port Royal , to check out all the birds at the cypress wetlands. The house is not far from Charleston, SC and Savannah GA, which we enjoyed seeing. We also like going to Beaufort and Hilton Head. One of our favorite things to do, was to go to Hunting beach in the evening. It was nice and hot while we were here and to go there at the end of the day feel the breeze and watch the tide come in was peaceful and relaxing. Barbara was very easy to work with and very easy to get in contact with. Thank you again for sharing your home!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend staying at this beautiful home in St. Helena. It is a beautiful, tranquil place and the private beach just down the road is a wonderful place to walk and explore and very peaceful. The home with the three master suites are very spacious and lovely decorated. The kitchen has everything you need and you feel like you are at home. And grilling and sitting outside on the very spacious, comfortable wrap porch is perfect to unwind and relax. The area and the beach at Hunting Island is very nice, wide beach for sun and fun. Loved the city of Beaufort and staying at the home is a perfect location to be able to take day trips to Savannah, Hilton Head, and Charleston. We hope to go back again and again.

Happy Girl!

The description sounded already wonderful and I could not really find better "words" to describe this beautiful home, but the FEELING I had, staying there was really enhancing the written description.

Peaceful, majestic, free, divine...

I spent a week there with friends and had a wonderful time!

There are lots of cute restaurants and shops in Beaufort.

We will be back!!!
