About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 1/2 Bathrooms

This location will allow you to have an easy walk to everything Historic Beaufort has to offer! Guests also receive a guidebook with insider tips to enjoying all of the best local sites, dining and shops.

This popular rental was designed for couples, families or friends to gather. It’s much more like a home than most typical rentals, and thus is often in demand. Located in a picturesque historic neighborhood of cottages and mansions.

You will have space to relax in the living room, dining room, fully-appointed cozy kitchen or the guests favorite: a private courtyard (with an additional dining table and seating area.) Whatever you need is at hand: Washer/Dryer, WiFi, flat screen HDTV, Cable, DVD and CD players, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, hair dryer, iron and free local phone.

The queen bedroom overlooks the private courtyard, and the second bedroom, with two twin beds, has great morning light and overlooks the main street. 1.5 baths with linens and towels provided.

Convenient access to main roads! Beach-lovers will find Hunting Island State Park just a short 20-minute ride down our street across the downtown bridge. You'll have two bikes, a collection of local books and movies, as well as games and puzzles for rainy days.

Special Coastal Living-style furnishings and original artwork are in all rooms.

Imagine leaving your car in the free off-street parking for a short walk or bike ride to downtown shops, art galleries, restaurants and beautiful Waterfront Park. Return to enjoy the sky and birdsong in your own private gated courtyard!

For your comfort, we employ a professional housekeeper, and for your safety, our property is licensed and inspected by the City and State.

We've received many lovely reviews and we can't wait to welcome you!

P.S. Save money! If you're booking longer than 7 days , mention our $25 per night discount for extra days over a week!

About Sara Tetley

Gary and I fell in love with the area on our first visit together in 1998! And because we are VRBO guests in other cities, we have applied everything possible we have learned from our travels for our guest convenience in our Beaufort home!

Sara Tetley purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Sara Tetley chose Historic District

Location! Location! Location! Incredible historic neighborhood! Walk right out the door to an Antebellum setting of cottages and mansions, the waterfront, a movie and performance hall, shops or restaurants. Lovingly decorated in Carolina Lowcountry style to reflect the local flavor.

What makes this townhome unique

As our guest, you'll receive a custom-designed electronic guidebook with unique insights on spots to visit. Everything is prepared 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.

Homeowner Response:

Toni! Thank you! It's is our absolute pleasure to have had your wonderful family come stay at Island Town House. I hope you'll consider our townhouse your favorite getaway, and return again to enjoy the town in different seasons. Please email a few of those photos for the scrapbook I am creating of our vrbo friends!

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this property with our 14 year old son over New Years' Eve weekend. We LOVED the location! It was an easy 10 minute walk to get to the main street which contains all the restaurants.

We have stayed in dozens of vacation rentals over the years and we found this one to be exceptionally clean, cute, and extra comfortable.

We would stay here again the next time we are in Beaufort!

Ideal location and fantastic owners

  • 4 of 5

Definitely received a warm Southern welcome by the attentive owners and the atmosphere of their home. It was perfect for our family of 4 and within walking distance to all the eateries downtown. That being said, the kitchen is more appropriate for light meal prep as opposed to full on cooking which is what we like to do, but there are so many delicious dining options nearby that it works out just fine. The back patio was perfect t for enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing. I f you are a reader, there are many books for you to explore. Beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for a good nights sleep. We are very pleased as it was just what we needed.

Owner's Response: We are sad that we lost a star for the size of the kitchen and truly hope our photos make each guest feel comfortable with expectations before they book. We love pleasing our guests and were especially delighted with your comment that our place was perfect for your family of 4 and just what you needed. All your wonderful remarks and your warm feedback about us and our place is absolutely appreciated! It was great working with you and we hope you will return again soon!

Absolutely Amazing Rental

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this town-home and the town itself throughout my stay, it was very hard to have to leave. The property is located right in the middle of the lovely and historic town of Beaufort, SC and its location makes it an easy walk to pretty much anywhere you want to go, even easier when you use the provided bikes. The house was equipped with every amenity that I needed and the entire space was very clean and well-kept. The owner's were very friendly and they jumped on any opportunity to help me when needed. This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to visit Beaufort, I cannot wait to come back.
