About Peggy Jo Nadler
Dean and Peggy Jo Nadler are just crazy about Port Royal. They discovered this sleepy little village after marrying in 1994 and spending time in the Beaufort area. Visiting Port Royal during trips to the coast became part of their routine. In 2009, while staying in a Beaufort vacation rental, they found this cottage and their retirement plans solidified. The Nadlers love shrimping, fishing, thrifting, the Port Royal farmers market, and the street dances. They enjoy walking around Port Royal with their two rescue dogs, Ellie and Rainy. Several years away from retirement, the Nadlers decided to share Port Royal and their cottage with vacationers. They are especially glad to host Marine families coming down to celebrate graduation from Parris Island with their new Marine - OORAH!! They issue only one warning: once you've experienced Port Royal, you'll be hooked, just like they are!!
Peggy Jo Nadler purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Peggy Jo Nadler chose Port Royal
This little cottage has it all. While it looks like an older cottage, it was VERY WELL built in 2004. The open floor plan is simple and very comfortable. Everything happens in the great room/kitchen: the cathedral ceilings create a wide-open space, and the knotty pine floors add warmth. Lots of windows bring great light into the space. The cottage is located in a quiet residential area with friendly neighbors. Walking around the village and watching stars at night is wonderful, and a short walk to the Sands Beach at sunrise or sunset is particularly enjoyable!
What makes this Cottage unique
New construction means clean lines, TONS of storage and new appliances. Outside, the tiny front and back yard are easy maintenance. The screened porch is SO RELAXING for morning coffee or wine before bedtime. The fire pit and patio chairs are perfect for cool evenings.

This was our second stay at this location, on other visits it was booked. You will not find a better rental in the Beaufort, Port Royal area. It is very clean, thoughtfully decorated, and so efficient (everything works and is maintained so well). Neighbors and locals passing are friendly, always speaking; you feel like your a resident instead of a renter. I have rented several homes in the area and they have been nice but they do not meet the standards of this home. Thank you Peggy and Dean.
Thanks so much! We do our best to keep the cottage as we would like to find it. We aim for clean, comfortable and homey, not fancy. Return guests are always welcome and let us know we're doing things right!
Awesome place with wonderful host
The cute little place was full of charm. I loved the screened in front porch. The place is very organized with everything you would need.The backyard has a little patio set to relax by the fire in the evenings. It is located on a very quiet street. The host has all kinds of broucheres about area attractions. If I visit the area again I would definitely choose this place!
Fantastic rental that exceeded our expectations!
This is indeed a very cozy, meaning super comfortable, and well equipped cottage!
We had plenty of room to spread out and the attention to detail blending the old and the new is perfect! The owner was available if needed, and nearby neighbors were also helpful. The location was perfect for getting to and from Parris Iand for USMC graduation, and there was very easy access, even walkable, to restaurants and a beach. Downtown Beaufort is nearby, and the beautiful Hunting Island State Park is a short drive - extremely helpful that the cottage provides a car pass to enter this beautiful beach area for free. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to return someday!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners have made everything so easy. Our dogs even enjoyed it. Great place to relax.
This was a clean & beautiful place
The owner was super nice & sweet to our family. We stayed here to see our sons graduation from the Marines . Close to Parris Island. We loved our stay & would definitely recommend it. Very clean place. We will definitely stay again sometime.
Peggy's home made us fall in love with Port Royal
We absolutely loved the home. Clean and comfortable with so much room. House is nicely laid out and beautifully decorated. Everything you need was there and then some. We fell in love with Port Royal and it's charm. I hate staying in hotels or places that have so many other guests but this home was so immaculate and comfortable it took all my stress away. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful home and making our vacation and new Marine graduation a memorable once in a life time experience. We read all the reviews prior to booking this home and they were all accurate to a "T". Everything is labled and neat and there is literally everything supplied you could ever need to feel at home. The street was so peaceful and quiet and everyone we met in Port Royal was super nice and friendly. You just couldn't help being in a good mood there. It's super close to Parris Island and shops and we enjoyed the Saturday music in the main street. Spent most of our time on the beautiful pier fishing for Blue crabs. I even caught 2 baby sharks and an eel. 5 star place Peggy! thank you so much for sharing this wonderful home. Gina and Joe Pittsburgh PA
Hunting Island State Park has a beautiful public beach. Nature lovers will enjoy exploring Ace Basin National Wildlife Refuge and Donnelly Wildlife Management Area. The Port Royal farmers market is a MUST SEE on Saturday mornings. Great produce, artisanal coffee, breads, pastas, cheeses and oils, baked goods, fresh seafood, organic and farm-raised meats, eggs and vegetables, landscape plants, and fresh kettle corn! Prepared food ranges from BBQ to wood-fired pizza, to Indian cuisine and more. THRIFTING is GREAT in this area, with a guide to many shops in the Beaufort/Port Royal/Bluffton/Hilton Head area. You could spend a week just visiting all the thrift, consignment and antique shops! Savannah is only 45 miles away, Charleston is 75; both make great day-trips from this location. Don't miss downtown Beaufort just 5 miles away, a very old port town, reminiscent of Charleston, but smaller.
