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

Professionally decorated in lowcountry style. Incredible historic neighborhood! Walk right out the door to a movie, shops or restaurants.

What makes this townhome unique

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:

Please email a few of those photos for the scrapbook I am creating of our vrbo friends!

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!.

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!

Walking through history...

  • 5 of 5

The Island Town House is a very well-equipped home located among the living history of beautiful Beaufort! Our family walked among the homes, churches, and war memorials to the waterfront several times a day. The waterfront is a quick walk and a 20 minute drive to Port Royal's boardwalk and four story watchtower is a nice side trip. This home really was a great value and the owners are just fantastic. They are great artists and photographers, too!

Cozy ,clean, comfortable, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

I came in town for PI graduation.Pros: Everything is like pictures. No issues, very quiet, loved the bed, no unexpected surprises, 10 minutes short drive to island. Forgot shampoo and conditioner and nice to see that they had some in drawers. Along with a couple new toothbrushes ( I did bring those lol) plenty of blankets. Super comfortable sofa I just sat and immediately felt like I could just pass out right there. Everything was super clean, no pest (except for the occasional Sandflea outside.) LOL..

Cons: hmmmmm I think the only thing and it's just probably me . I love going to sleep with noise or watching TV to get me to sleep. There is only one tv in the living room downstairs. None upstairs. I had my mom in the next room with my new marine so it was really quiet upstairs any noises we would make we'd here lol. Hmm it's a older home (duh) you couldn't tell by the way it's been kept up, decorated,and remodeled. But you do hear the squeaks going up and down stairs .. hmm that's all .. I'd definitely stay again. I don't think k I would ever stay at hotel /motel again.

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.
