About Sara Tetley

My husband Gary served in the USMC and was stationed here. 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.

Sara Tetley purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Sara Tetley chose Beaufort

Incredible 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!.

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!!

Beaufort Winner!

  • 5 of 5

Owners thought of everything! If you want to be close to town, literally with a few minutes(maybe 2), this place awaits travelers who appreciate the extra touches. The home was well furnished, comfortable and accommodating for a family of up 4. Parking was great and the neighbors were very friendly. This property needs to be on top of your list if your planning any stay in Beaufort!

A Special Place to Stay in Beaufort

  • 5 of 5

Everyone had such a marvelous time and we would recommend this special property! It is very clean, beautifully furnished and a good value for such a central location. Thank you Gary and Sara, you were just wonderful to work with and have thought of every little detail! The bedrooms and living areas were so comfortable and tastefully decorated, and whatever we needed was right there. Outside there is a courtyard that was such a nice spot to have coffee or wine or just read and listen to the birds. When it rained we had a movie marathon thanks to the great DVD selection.

Being right in the historic district near the activities meant no need for a car. Walking down to the waterfront was something we looked forward to, seeing all the historical sites that took you back in time, but feeling like a local. We ate and shopped. A lot! The Take out menus and info binder Sara provided answered all our questions about best things to see and do in Beaufort- and we did almost everything! We never wanted to leave and will come back as soon as we can.
