About Sara Tetley

My husband Gary served in the USMC and was stationed here as a young man. We fell in love with the area on our first visit together in 1998. We were vrbo customers for 10 years before buying this property and have applied everything possible for a comfortable stay..

Sara Tetley purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Sara Tetley chose Beaufort

Incredible historic neighborhood! Walk to a movie, shops or restaurant.

What makes this townhome unique

This is our family's getaway when you are not there. Everything is ready for you to live like a local!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My 2 sisters, my Mom and I made the trip to South Carolina and stayed at this Townhome in Beaufort. After arriving, we wished we could stay longer. It's a short walk to the cutest town. We spent a few hours the first day just enjoying the town of Beaufort. We walked and shopped until we dropped. And then we did it again the next day.

We were trying to pick our favorite thing and couldn't. Everything, every store, every restaurant and every person we saw was wonderful.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Dottie, the next door neighbor. She made us feel so welcomed.

When it came time to leave, we couldn't just go.....we had to drive up and down the streets behind the university across the street and take in the beautiful homes. We took at least a billion pictures.

The townhome was perfect. Everything about it is so comfortable and convenient.

Thank you so much Sara for providing an oasis for vacationers.

Well-Appointed Accomodations in Charming Town!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, including two small children, stayed for a week in this lovely home in the town of Beaufort. The home is thoughtfully and newly decorated and owned by gracious and accommodating hosts- a real vacation/ get away treat. It is also in walking distance of this charming southern town- Beaufort, SC. Saunter six blocks down the street from these accommodations to the wonderfully renovated waterfront where you can peruse the interesting art galleries; hold quiet conversations while gliding in the porch swing overlooking Beaufort river with a glass of wine; tour historic homes; and eat wonderful meals on the outdoor patios of noteworthy restaurants like Saltus. Cross the river to swim at the beautiful beach in Hunting Island Park where crowds are few; Palmettos shroud your beach blanket; and state park status eliminates unsightly commercial and residential coastline growth. Kayak with guides from Beaufort Kayak to gain the best views and learn the history of Beaufort and its stately homes or explore the Salt Marsh to experience Puffer Fish in defense and dolphins in their freedom. Whether you are friends traveling together; a couple alone or a family with kids, there is something for everyone. This area of SC is a little off the beaten path - but that's part of its charm - get away not only from everyday life but from the crowds and beach town tourists. Stay at this Beaufort townhome and be rewarded with comfort, convenience, and southern hospitality. You won't be disappointed!.

Townhouse in Beaufort is very neat, clean, and you will feel right at home !!!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. and Mrs. Tetley (the owners of this townhouse in Beaufort SC) could not be more gracious, responsive, honest, thorough and overall just the most wonderful people to deal with!!! Their townhouse is very comfortable and has a excellent "homey" feel !!! A big extra plus is the very enjoyable art work - paintings and photography by the Tetleys. We really enjoyed the people and the ambiance of Beaufort, and we will return to spend at least a full week there. We would give Mr. and Mrs. Tetley and their townhouse our highest possible endorsement Respectfully, David & Lynn McGee -

Excellent Stay in Beautiful Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Sara for working with us on our last-minute reservation! We went to Beaufort for our son's graduation on October 28 from Marines Boot Camp. Due to Hurricane Matthew, our initial housing arrangement fell through the week prior to our departure. We tried to book a local hotel, only to have the hotel cancel our reservation due to failing city inspections days before we were supposed to arrive. I had never used VRBO and was hesitant to do so. But we were sooo lucky to find Sara and her Island Town House! The town house was just the right size for my husband, myself, and my teen daughter. I appreciated all the thoughtful details that were included in the town house, in terms of decor, supplies, restaurant/attractions recommendations, etc. The town house was also very clean. We also loved being within walking distance of the center of Beaufort. I did not mind all the detailed information about how to leave the town house when we checked out, because it meant we didn't have any question in our minds what we needed to do. The parking was ample and convenient, although if you have a very large vehicle (such as a Suburban) you might find it a bit tight for backing up. If we have a chance to visit Beaufort again, Sara will be my first call! Her friendliness, understanding towards our situation, and prompt responses to questions, etc. made our experience very pleasant and smooth.

We love beautiful Beaufort!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in a cute, friendly, beautiful city! The location was within walking distance to several shops and restaurants and an easy stroll to several antebellum homes. The town house has everything you can think of for a great vacation - books, movies, games, and a lovely back patio for sipping morning coffee or afternoon wine. Owners are very prompt with their response and have decorated their home beautifully with collections of their own art. We can't wait to return!

Charming home, very comfortable, amazing location, great value

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 (including 2 under 10) had a great weekend getaway here. The owners were very accommodating and even have a website to help you get to know the area and recommendations. Really cool! The house is in a perfect location, blocks away from Bay St, in the middle of the historic district. I enjoyed using the complimentary bikes to explore each day. The house is comfortable and decorated in charming beach decor- very relaxing. Wish I had more time to enjoy the Tetley's library. The beds were comfortable. It would have been nice to have another shower but otherwise the house fit our needs perfectly. We will be back!!
