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.. This is our family getaway when you are not here-so every detail is addressed for a conformable visit.

Sara Tetley purchased this townhome in 2008

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.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this townhouse! It was as perfect as it gets for us, and made our stay in Beaufort even more enjoyable than anticipated. Very convenient, clean and beautifully decorated with such tasteful furnishings! Especially enjoyed sitting the courtyard.

The owner Sara was great to work with and offered several tips on the area which were right on point. There was so much to do and see from this location, including walking tours, shops, restaurants and a great waterfront park.

Good for walks and short drives to Savannah and Charleston. Can’t wait to stay here again! Our visit was just too short!

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.

Just right for us

  • 5 of 5

Everything as promised. Great value for the price. Excellent location if you are willing to walk a few blocks to the water. We were and did it many times. Owners seemed genuinely interested in our trip.

OK but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

Property owner is very nice and responsive but property needs some TLC. The VRBO ad is accurate in the location and description of the property and it was orderly and clean at checkin. The carpet downstairs is stained and buckled, the ceiling is cracked with some water stain. The downstairs half bath does not have a lock which could be uncomfortable for some.

A good deep cleaning and some heavy maintenance would be an improvement. Location is about a half mile from waterfront park. It faces Carteret St. which has heavy traffic. Both bedrooms are upstairs so not good for mobility impaired people. The unit has good tv and WiFi with an extensive array of CDs. There was a good stock of basic goods like paper towels and laundry products. The owner had a supply of light bulbs and batteries that came in handy for light fixtures and remotes. The outdoor seating area was nicely appointed.

We spent two weeks there and enjoyed our stay but some TLC is needed.

Owner's Response: Hello! We are so glad to hear from you now and to have your important feedback! We're extremely sorry we weren't given a chance to address concerns during your stay. For example- to lock bath door you simply push knob in and turn. When I touched base after your arrival, I assumed all was well. Our expressed desire is your comfort - and we love taking immediate action for our guests! Please understand you are important to us and all your feedback is truly taken to heart. The carpet is being addressed now-but could definitely happened during your stay. Thank you so much for the positive remarks as well!
