Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our home is heated and cooled with central heat and A/C to offer the greatest comfort. The four bedrooms--three queens and one twin bed bedroom plus a queen sofa bed in the living room and a roll-away single bed for an extra guest--can accommodate up to 8 adults and 2-3 children. The house is amply spacious and comfortably furnished to instill an at-home feeling for your important stay. The maximum number of guests is not to exceed 10 people, infants are not included in this maximum number.

One of the most wonderful things about our house is the large comfy screened in porch. Sitting on the porch in the mornings having our cups of coffee and enjoying a relaxing drink in the evenings, watching the birds in the front garden, and treasuring the quiet, is bliss and our rental families' favorite past time.

A home-away-from-home. Get re-acquainted with your graduating marine while enjoying Southern hospitality, peace and quiet, plus the nearby activities that await you at this charming, roomy home in the historic town of Port Royal. We're less than a simple 2 minute drive to Parris Island Marine Base entrance. Take time to read the wonderful reviews left by previous Marine families who were thrilled at how close they were to their Marines.

History buffs, nature lovers and those who treasure the peace and quiet of a traditional walking community will enjoy staying with us in Port Royal's friendly, small neighborhood atmosphere. We're only 5 minutes from historic Beaufort with its many shops, galleries and restaurants, 30 minutes from Hunting Island's 5,000 acre State Park with its long white beaches...all open to the public, hiking and bird watching, and also minutes from the many islands that offer endless beautiful scenery, golf course, great galleries, antiquing, restaurants and gorgeous weather.

We would love to share our home with you; a renovated traditional, charming, roomy Port Royal home in the heart of Port Royal. All rooms are cheerfully decorated for comfort and relaxation to help make you feel at home. Come stay with us and enjoy the quiet and charm of Port Royal that we fell in love with. Friendly neighbors and town folk, church bells that ring at noon, birds that sing to bring in the new day, and peace and quiet greets you every day.

Take a short walk or safely bicycle to everything you need to relax and un-wind in a small friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Enjoy the local restaurants, walking trails where you can observe the nesting egrets, herons and other native birds in our town's sanctuary, the water front that offers boat launch ramps, docks, amazing fishing, the community Sands Beach, and a boardwalk with a look-out tower where you can watch the dolphins play in the water and the many varieties of birds fly over head. Enjoy the local activities or just relax on the large screened-in porch which overlooks the beautiful garden.

About Roberta Hare

Jack and Roberta Hare

The proud owners of 1611 Columbia Avenue in Port Royal, S.C.

We are residents of Southern New Jersey, but hope to make Port Royal our permanent home. Until then we have the satisfaction and pleasure of sharing our home with wonderful people who may find our home their home-away-from home. We love Port Royal and its beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

Roberta Hare purchased this house in 2008

Why Roberta Hare chose South Carolina

Port Royal and the surrounding areas are truly a taste of the South. The pace and friendly people are a respite from our crazy Northeast life style. One day there and the tension melts away. Our home is furnished as a 'lived in' home, not a rental property. We think you'll feel 'at home' while staying with us!

What makes this house unique

Port Royal village, where the house is located, is isolated from the busier roadways and commercial areas. Once you turn into the Village of Port Royal, off Route 802, there's a distinct atmosphere of calm, quiet and life at a much slower pace. There is no through traffic into the town; and, our home sits on a dead end street so there are very few cars that pass by the house any time of the day or night. Even so, if you want modern life's amenities, they're less than a minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your home to us to see my brother graduate from Parris Island. The beds were quite comfortable and the recommendations for places to eat were spot-on.



P.S. We all loved the cats! They were all well behaved and kind, even to the one year old.

Very accommodating property, close to Parris Island!

  • 4 of 5

Nice home near Parris Island! This was perfect for our family of 10 to gather together and celebrate the graduation of our new Marine! The screened in porch was nice for relaxing evenings. The neighborhood was very quiet. The house was clean, though could use some updates in the full bathroom.

Nice quiet area, perfect for good old sleeping

  • 5 of 5

Although we didn't spend much time on the property, it was great. Drove down from NC for our daughters US Marines graduation. Although we wished there was another shower for the amount of sleeping space ( 4 bdrm /2 people each) making it a little challenging getting everyone up, showed and to bed/ out the door. We did Accomplish some much needed sleep. It was clean, quiet and peaceful. Thank you so much for opening the doors of your beautiful sanctuary

As to your concern about the possibility that your Marine's graduation date could change, I have had many families with the same concern. Fortunately, all my families’ graduates graduated on their original dates; however, if it does occur, my cancellation policy is if you cancel at least three weeks before your arrival date, there is a cancellation fee of one night fee for rentals of 2 nights, a 2 night fee for rentals 3-4 nights, and a 3 night fee for rentals 5-6 nights. Cancellations shorter than 3 weeks before arrival are non-refundable.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
