About Rob Rose

Beaufort has always been my spiritual home. My mothers family has been here since the 1700's and I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, spending every summer growing up with my grandparents on Ann Street. I have three vacation rental homes in Fort Lauderdale, Beaufort and Southern Pines. I have personally renovated them all, and have furnished them with family antiques and other furnishings that I collect. You will find 18th to 20th Century furniture, art, china, clocks, rugs, etc. along with quality upholstered pieces and great beds. My homes are magazine quality, and in fact have been in various publications. Really much nicer than most vacation rentals I have seen or stayed in. For those looking for comfort and livability, its here. For others with an appreciation for design, history, art and antiques, I think you will love it!

Rob Rose purchased this house in 2014

Why Rob Rose chose Beaufort

This cottage is on a big beautifully landscaped lot on a quiet street with lots of privacy, and within minutes of all that the Beaufort waterfront and downtown offers with easy access to all the shopping found along Live Oak Street, including Fishtown Seafood, an ABC, grocery and drug stores. Take the golf cart, walk or bike around town without getting on a busy street. Compare the local offerings and I think you will see that this is a great choice for size, location, amenities, and price.

What makes this house unique

Perfectly laid out Beaufort cottage, on a big lot with huge old trees, Oak floors, lots of light from big windows. A golf cart provided to guests for getting around town. Off street parking. Unlike most vacation rentals this home is furnished with quality things. Its really my second home I am sharing with guests. No thrift shop/flea market/ikea stuff here! Quality beds, and bed linens, antiques, a collection of books with many of local interest. A very well equipped kitchen with high end table and cookware.

Absolutely charming house in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house! It was stocked with everything we needed. It is very tastefully decorated and warm and inviting. From the high quality bedding and towels to the wonderful antiques, everything made us feel as if were welcome. The owner clearly cares about his guests experience and we are grateful for his hospitality. The location was perfect, nestled in a quiet residential area, a short gulf cart ride to the grocery store and downtown Beaufort. We had access to beaches, restaurants, fishing and swimming spots. It was the best vacation we’ve had in years! I would recommend it to anyone.

Beautifully decorated and nicely appointed

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 10 nights. It was nicely appointed. Gorgeous antique furniture, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds. It was a great base for exploring the area of Cape Lookout, Beaufort, Morehead City and Atlantic beach, easy access to all these areas. It is about a mile walk to all that down town Beaufort had to offer.

The owner was quick to respond to a few concerns we had during our stay.

I would highly recommend this to other renters.

Beaufort is a historic village founded in 1709, the third oldest town in NC, and recently name the Coolest Small Town in America. It is Key West without the cruise ship tourists and Provincetown without the hype and on a even smaller walkable scale. The town is packed with historic homes, a lively commercial street on the waterfront. Taylors Creek runs beside front street where you can swim off the town dock, or go across to the shoals and see wild horses. Cape Lookout and Shackleford Banks ( the southernmost end of the outer banks ) are across Bogue Sound by boat or easy Ferry from Front Street. Buy seafood that was swimming last night at a local fish market. Follow the bike path from the house to tour Beaufort, visit the Beaufort Historical Association site and tour the preserved home and buildings, ride the English double decker bus to tour the town. Water water everywhere for boaters. Tour Fort Macon and hit Atlantic Beach to cool off. Can you find the oldest tombstone in the Old Burying Ground? The girl who was buried in a barrel of rum?

Lots of great restaurants in Beaufort such as City Kitchen, Clawsons, Aqua, The Spot, Beaufort Grocery, Dank Burrito, Stillwater, and others.

Rental bikes, boats, kayaks are readily available in town.
