Beaufort area House Rental Photos and Description

House, Dock with Pierhead, 3 Bedrooms,, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

A beautiful 2,500 sq. ft. custom built home located toward the end of a point on close to a half-acre of land. The house is nestled among the live oaks, cedars, and pines, and elevated, showcasing westerly views across the marsh and providing spectacular sunsets. The property features a 350 ft. dock across leading to deepwater (3 ft. min. at low tide). The dock has a pier head, providing plenty of shade, and a boatlift. See the shrimp boats off in the distance. You can fish, crab, and shrimp off the dock or go clamming at the nearby Coffin Point beach a short walk away.

The inside of the house is very spacious with an open floorplan and features dark hardwoods throughout and 10 ft.+ ceilings with cooling ceiling fans in all bedrooms and common areas. The layout is perfect for a family or couple wanting a lot of room and privacy, or two families vacationing together that desire their own spaces. Sleeps 6-8 (for a family including kids), but anything over 6 adults might be pushing it.

The main floor includes a vast, open floorplan with the living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as a half bath and the master suite. Expansive windows look out over the marsh and deepwater from every vantage point. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and the den has a flatscreen sony tv. A covered porch with breezy ceiling fans offers a shady spot to relax and sip morning coffee or watch the sun set. The master suite is huge, with plenty of room to lounge, relax, and take in the treetop views. The master bath features a double vanity and walk-in double shower to steam and relax after a day of outside play. The master closet is so large our young son likes to sleep on a queen airbed here and make forts.

The upstairs includes the other two bedrooms, a full bath, a common area, and laundry room. Each bedroom offers panoramic views of the outdoors. One bedroom features a queen-sized bed and flat screen tv, the other has two double beds. The common area is a great space for children to relax and includes a tv, dvd player, custom bookshelves, whiteboard, and futon. For those traveling with young ones and not a lot of car space, we have a pack and play, toddler potty, and air mattress to free up your car space.

There is plenty of covered parking under the house and uncovered parking on the driveway.

The property is a half-mile walk from a secluded beach on St. Helena Sound. Take the opportunity to dig up a clam dinner, surf, fish for redfish, or just swim in the calm warm waters. There is a horse farm nearby which offers horseback rides on the beach. Or your can just hang out on the porch or outdoor patio and watch the horses walk by. VERY relaxing. Grill up your catch on our BBQ or do a full-on oyster roast in our oyster pit. The flat terrain of the area is well-suited for joggers and bicycle enthusiasts.

Beaufort (with its shopping, dining, boating and cultural scene) is only a short drive (15 min.) away. Hunting Island State Park is about a 10 minute drive from the property (we provide free passes) and offers plenty for wildlife/nature/beach lovers. There are many seafood restaurants for fans of fish, shrimp, and shellfish. Nearby farms offer fresh fruits and vegetables in season.

Why The Owner chose Beaufort area

We fell in love with the area -- the marsh, the oaks, the beach, the ocean, etc.. We love the relaxed lifestyle as well as the opportunity to fill our stomach with all types of seafood. This is a great place for people who like the outdoors. If you like fishing, kayaking, biking, golfing, swimming, boating, clamming, crabbing, shrimping, walking, jogging, horseback riding, relaxing, outdoor eating, shopping (nearby) then you'll understand why we bought in this area. Plus, the home is absolutely gorgeous. You really don't have to leave the property to have a good and relaxing time.

What makes this house unique

You can go crabbing and fishing off the dock. Enjoy the bbq and oyster pit. The home is very spacious with great views. All of the furniture is brand-new. There is even an outdoor shower. Flat-screen TVs and wireless internet are there for you to enjoy in any down-time. We are about a ten-minute walk to a secluded beach. The are numerous farms nearby offering fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as many seafood restaurants offering the catch of the day (you can be sure that it will be fresh and you can always ask).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, this house is amazing! The dock at sunrise is the most beautiful and peaceful place. My family has had a very busy year and this was the perfect place to unwind. Watching my family enjoying fishing...was worth every dollar. This house and this island feel magical..

Fantastic vacation in this house again.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again to Pam and Morgan for letting the rest of the world enjoy this beautiful home. This is our second time staying here and hopefully not the last.

We came with just 4 people last year and wanted to take a family vacation this year. I looked to the house that I knew would accommodate and fulfill that need. It didn't disappoint. The house was full this time and still had plenty of room.

The crabbing, which I was happy with last year (caught 8 overnight), was drastically better this year. In a day and a half we caught over 60. Placed back about 20 of them and still came in with 48. Chicken back from Publix is the key. Only cost about 2.50 for 2 packs. Well worth it.

Everyone that stayed with us fell in love with the house and it's amenities. Having the Hunting Island Pass really helped.

Looking forward to returning next year and many in the future.

This is the second time we have rented this property. The stay was amazing once again. From relaxing on the dock to walking to the private beech for a swim everything was perfect. In a few minutes you can be on the beech at Hunting Island or at a road side stand which sells fresh seafood. We were able to catch all sorts of fish from the dock along with crab, for my son this was the best part. I would not hesitate recommending staying here as we are already planning a return trip.

Delightful house filled with natural light

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay, the house is comfortable and spacious. The kitchen had most of the essentials, the beds were firm but comfortable, the house is well maintained and clean. The porch among the trees was thoroughly enjoyed by us. Only downside was the beach close by has too many oyster shells to really swim without water shoes, but we enjoyed walking on that beach in the evening. The pass to the state park was priceless. At the park we enjoyed swimming on the beach, fishing from the pier, and walking along trail to the part of the beach on Fripp Sound. Along the sound, you emerge from the trees and have the impression of suddenly finding yourself someplace on some remote beach. The pictures we took of the downed, bleached trees strewn every where will always remind us of our pleasure walking among them.

Beautiful remote feeling, close to town.

  • 4 of 5


Pam is great to work with -- responsive and professional.

The location is gorgeous. It’s convenient to town, while giving the feel of a true low-country experience

The layout is great — spacious and comfortable

The kitchen is very well appointed. Sadly, we were so busy doing things we never cooked anything besides coffee!

(Hoping to rectify that next time.)

It’s quiet -- except for the birds. They begin singing at daybreak. We city-slickers used foam ear plugs :)

The beds are comfortable.

We didn’t use the fire pit, as it was too wet. But it is beautiful, and we’ve got plans for dock-sitting and s’mores next time we come.

It is basically clean.

Covered parking is really nice -- especially when you arrive in the pouring rain!

There’s plenty of comfy seating in the living area.

WiFi, Dish, and AppleTV are a great addition — although we never had a tv on while we were there, we all took advantage of the wifi!

We didn’t get time to use them, but saw plenty of outdoor gear. If it’d been beach weather, we’d have been well prepared.

The Hunting Island pass is a lovely touch.

The view, the view, the view!!!

Lovely vacation home in beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this lovely property on St. Helena for a long weekend. The area is completely stunning. The house is surrounded by live oaks covered with Spanish moss, palmettos, pines, and I think cedars. The marshy area across the road, where the dock is, is full of birds and other creatures. The house has tons of windows all around, so you sort of feel like you are in a treehouse. We enjoyed hanging out on the porch, watching the birds from the dock, walking to nearby Coffin Point beach, clamming on the beach, spending a couple afternoons on the beach at nearby Hunting Island State Park, buying shrimp and fish from the nearby seafood purveyors, grilling and making feasts in the wonderful kitchen, and sitting by the fire pit at night. We absolutely loved our stay. The owners were very good communicators and were easy to reach. They gave excellent recommendations for what to do and where to find seafood and such. We had all that we needed at the house. Thank you for everything!

Peaceful Lowcountry Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. The exterior and porch are even more beautiful than the pictures. The high ceilings and many windows give it an open airy feel but the surrounding oaks and Spanish moss create an atmosphere of a private retreat. The marsh views are so peaceful and there is a great dock on the water perfect for fishing, crabbing and kayaking. On our trip the weather was clear and the sunsets and stars were amazing from the dock. Great location, an easy walk to the beach and short drive to Hunting Island State Park or Beaufort. We appreciated the park pass. The home was impeccably clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a great vacation!
