Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

******John & I are out of the country until the end of May. I will respond to requests as soon as I can, based on time and wifi access. Thank you for your understanding! if you need to speak to someone in Beaufort, please call our Property Manager, Melissa, @ 843 812-6836.*********

This adorable home is a quirky little 2 bedroom 1 bath 1940's cottage located in the heart of Historic Downtown Beaufort. We have completed the addition of a beautiful, private, back yard patio. Duke Cottage is adjacent to our other property, Baby Charles, VRBO #282865. We have just added our Health and Fitness Destination, #631501, just 4 houses from the Spanish Moss Trail in the Hermitage Neighborhood.

From this location, you can easily walk to our gorgeous waterfront park where there are lots of restaurants, galleries, and shops. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the ‘yacht parade’ on the Beaufort River, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. The Point neighborhood, filled with antebellum mansions used in the filming of many movies, is just 4 blocks to the east and a wonderful area for leisurely strolls.

Inside the house there is central AC (and heat), as well as whisper quiet ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms. It has a cozy living room with a 40' Sony Bravia flat panel TV, HD cable and a DVD player.

The kitchen is large and bright and has been completely redone with a glass top electric range, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, and a stacked washer/dryer unit. All cabinets and countertops are new, with a deep stainless steel sink and a pull down spray faucet. All pots, pans, dishes, glassware, flatware, and necessary gadgets are provided - as are small appliances like a coffee maker, toaster, blender, and a hand mixer. The kitchen is also stocked with staples such as salt and pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar - just to name some. We found a cute little 'nesting' table and 2 chairs for casual dining.

The Dining Room has large windows on 2 walls. The dining table is round glass and seats 4 comfortably. There is a lovely curved metal chandelier for ambience.

The master bedroom has a 2011 Sealy Posturepedic mattress and boxspring with 100% cotton high thread sheets and fluffy new pillows. We have switched out all of our Queen bedding to white European Duvet & Shams during the cooler months - IF we have any - so there will still be the high thread count sheets, but instead of our white cotton Matelassé Coverlets, now you will have a duvet cover and shams. These are washed and changed between guest. It's more work, but it as we discovered, it is a better sleeping experience!

The second bedroom has a single bed with the same mattress, except that it is a twin. We tried having a trundle, but it is too cramped to be comfortable, so the house is limited to 3 guests.

There is one bathroom, and while it isn't large, it is bright and fresh and comes stocked with plenty of 100% cotton fluffy towels. Amenities and a blow dryer are also provided.

The private patio has a dining table with 4 chairs and an umbrella, and 2 chaise lounges and a huge umbrella at the other end. It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Pets are allowed with prior approval and a refundable deposit. Please let me know what kind and size of pet you wish to bring so we can discuss it's appropriateness!

All you have to bring is you and your clothing - we've got the rest!

Oh - ALL of our properties are NON-SMOKING, inside and out.

About Erica

After growing up in FL and spending many years in Texas and Arizona - living in the Washington DC Metro area for 22 years was enough COLD weather for us. As soon as our son went to college, John sold his computer business and we headed to Beaufort! Now he focuses his energy on alternative energy and enjoying the outdoors. I used to do Hospitality Interior Design for a major hotel chain, but now spend most of my time on our properties, and enjoying this gorgeous area. Our son visits as often as he can, as do our many wonderful friends. Life is good here in Beaufort!

Erica purchased this house in 2009

Why Erica chose Historic District

We bought this little house because it backs up to our other property, VRBO #282865. We love the location and the neighborhood, and we wanted to be able to offer additional accommodations! We recently finished #631501, 1.4 miles from here in the Hermitage Neighborhood - by the rail trail!

What makes this house unique

Our guests comment that it is a perfect distance to the waterfront and Bay Street. They love being immersed in the history of the area and being able to walk to everything. It is just far enough to be away from all the weekend noise and traffic, yet still in the heart of it!

Wonderful accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything the previous reviews said it would be. Immaculate, comfortable bed, wonderful linens. The kitchen was well stocked, and the spices and condiments were very much appreciated. An easy walk to the riverfront and Bay street.

Lived Like a Local

  • 5 of 5

We wanted sometime away and Beaufort and this cottage was just the place for us. This quaint well maintained cottage, located less than a 5 min. walk to the Historic Downtown area and water walk, allowed us to live like locals. It was defiantly a home away from home! The house was very clean, nicely furnished(very comfy bed and linens), has a well equipped kitchen and a fenced in patio area(complete with seating and a barbecue)allowing our 2 Dachshunds to have outside time. The bathroom was on the small side, but that is to be expected in an older home. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet so the short walk to the water and restaurants was pleasant. Beaufort itself is a beautiful town so we spent days just taking in the scenery and admiring the historic homes. We spent one day just driving the bridges to the islands and exploring the beaches(not easy to find). It reminded me of driving the Florida Keys before the rest of the world found out about them! Beaufort is located so that both Charleston and Savannah made nice day trips too. All in all we had a wonderful time and I really didn't want to leave! I also want to thank Erica and John for helping us make it happen.

Great property with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Duke Cottage for a long weekend recently and it was one of our favorite VRBO properties. The cottage is adorable with a nice patio and is in a great location. The house was immaculate and well-maintained. The owners are pros at the short-term rental game in the sense that they provide everything you could need for your stay (coffee, a small container of milk, make-up towels, condiments/spices, a very detailed binder with candid reviews of local restaurants and attractions, to name a few). We have family in the area and are planning to return in the fall--we plan to stay at the Duke cottage again if it's available.

Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

It was very nice and well kept. Was surprised to see a variety of spices, even though we ate out. Was also surprised to see coffee and sugar. The rooms were just a tad smaller than I thought, but was perfect for our needs. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

We are located in the heart of the historic downtown - lots to see and do all within walking distance! Our waterfront park is the loveliest on the east coast, and it is just a short walk from the house.
