Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom / 2 Bath End Unit Townhouse - Large Deck, Fenced Back Yard & Firepit

This beautiful townhouse, located in the historic district, is just 3 short blocks from downtown Beaufort. Being an "end unit", our place provides extra light, views and privacy not available in other townhouses. Walk to the Waterfront Park, downtown shops, galleries or a variety of restaurants. Little need for a car once you arrive. Our home is located on a published walking tour route and horse-drawn carriage tours come within 100 ft of the house.

Bedrooms: The house can sleep six comfortably, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Two bedrooms are upstairs and one is on the ground floor. The large master bedroom has a queen bed; it also has a single size sleep sofa. The second bedroom has 2 single beds. The ground floor has a bedroom with a very comfortable queen sleep sofa (Tiffany 24/7 Mechanism). If not needed as a bedroom, this room doubles as a den/ office and has a working fireplace. The upstairs bathroom has his & hers sinks as well as a shower/ tub. The downstairs bath has a shower. Washer & dryer are upstairs for convenience.

Living room: The front door leads into a large living room decorated with a coastal theme. The large bay window gives a spacious feeling. Relax in cushioned wicker chairs and sofa. We’ve decorated with pictures and artwork from many places.

Kitchen and eating area: The kitchen is small, but fully equipped and has all appliances. The dining table seats 8.

Deck & backyard: A spacious deck is great for entertaining or just relaxing. The backyard is fenced and surrounded by trees to provide security and a sense of privacy. Our landscaping includes a large patio paved with smooth river pebble stone. The central fire pit and ample stock of firewood create a fun focal point for evening get togethers.

Parking: Parking is off-street in a dedicated space behind the townhouse. Additional guest spaces are available. In addition, 2 free parking lots are across the street. The parking area and back are well-lighted with three streetlights.

Entertainment and communications: The townhouse has DirecTV with two HDTVs. High speed internet is available with a wireless router.

Our home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood with private off-street parking. In additions, we feel extra secure because of the 3 streetlights in the back. Walk, jog, or ride bikes through this historic area to see nearby historic churches, beautiful homes, and tree-lined streets. Extra parking is available in the free municipal parking lots just next door. Launch a boat in the Intracoastal Waterway at two near-by public ramps: Beaufort City Marina Landing or Pigeon Point Landing.

Our townhouse is a great place for you to relax with your graduating Marine. It is located just under 6 miles (about 10 minutes) to the entrance to US Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island. Our home is convenient to both downtown and Parris Island. The map show the location of our townhouse in Beaufort, and it can be adjusted to show the route to Parris Island down Ribaut Road through the town of Port Royal.

Credit cards are allowed, but we will charge a 3% convenience fee to recover costs. You may prefer to use the VRBO eCheck option.

About Edward Brown

With roots in South Carolina, we have spent most of our careers outside the South. Ed was in the military and Mary taught at the elementary school level. We have vacationed on the South Carolina coast for many decades. When we discovered Beaufort and the sea islands, we knew this was the place.We are eager to be back and bought this townhouse as a vacation home. For now, we are offering our vacation home to others.

Please not that cedit cards are allowed, but we will charge a 3% convenience fee to recover costs. VRBO's eCheck has no cost.

Edward Brown purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Edward Brown chose Historic District

For several summers, we visited the Beaufort area and stayed in different locations (e.g., Ladys Island, Port Royal, Parris Island Gateway area, Pigeon Point, and near downtown.)

We discovered that nothing beats the convenience and simplicity of being so close to downtown and the waterfront. When crowded events occur along the waterfront, we never have to worry about parking (or a designated driver ). Shopping, restaurants, strolling the marina, the public library, and the Post Office are all just a few blocks away. You might be able to avoid driving all week, except for all the adventures waiting in the surrounding South Carolina Sea Islands.

For day trips, try locations such as Charleston, Savannah, or Hilton Head. If you're going towards Charleston, we really enjoyed the Charleston Tea Plantation; it was fun taking the tour and learning how tea is grown and produced.

Credit cards are allowed, but we will charge a 3% convenience fee to recover costs. VRBO's eCheck has no cost.

What makes this townhome unique

Our townhouse is an end unit which we particularly like. With windows on the side, the unit has a more spacious feel with lots of light. The raised deck is our favorite space because it is a natural extension of the living space and because the tall lattice fence and trees give a real feeling of privacy. In addition, the back yard (56 x 30 ft) is fully enclosed.

The neighborhood is very quiet. Surrounded by churches (Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist), Sunday morning is the only time when it's busy. During the week, the only interruptions are the hourly church bells from St Helena's Anglican Church (but only during the day.)

Credit cards are allowed, but we will charge a 3% convenience fee to recover costs. VRBO's eCheck has no cost.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in Beaufort at this Historic District Townhouse. We are from a small town, and loved the atmosphere in Beaufort. Close to the waterfront, loved the swings, we could walk to many Restaurants, and historical sites. We also toured the area, as well as Savannah, a very central location to visit Charleston, Hilton Head, and Bluffton. The owner was great to work with, and the townhouse is super comfy, with a great back deck, and fire pit. Hoping to be back again in the future.

Thanks Ed and Mary Gale.

Perfect for our April Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 4 night visit. It was walking distance to downtown but also very quiet. We had everything we needed to be comfortable and make light meals. We were only 2 but there is lots of room for at least 2 more people.

Having a pass for Hunting Island State Park was a nice bonus!

The kitchen was supplied with the usual amenities and then some. It is so nice when coming for a short stay to not have buy every little item you might need.

We did not end up using the backyard because we were out and about a lot but it was lovely.

I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a comfortable house in a great location in Beaufort which is also well managed by the owners.

Cozy, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation rental for a nine day stay. We were walking distance from the town and waterfront, including several restaurants. The townhouse was nice but not luxurious, had seen some use, and (therefore) felt a lot like home. We had plenty of room, enjoyed the cheerful decor, the pleasant outdoor area, and spacious bedroom and bathrooms. Bedding and towels were of high quality. The kitchen was well equipped, with updated appliances, but very small. This was not an issue as we cooked simply. We used the complimentary day pass to visit Hunting Island State park. Directions, checkin and checkout instructions were clear. The neighborhood seemed very safe and quiet. We appreciated being able to bring our pets. Highly recommended.

Great Location, Beautiful Outdoor Area

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our needs. The interior wasn't the newest but all the beds were comfortable, and the area was within walking distance to everything. The outdoor patio area is gorgeous and lots of fun. Overall, would definitely stay again.

Location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in the historic district close to the waterfront, shops, and restaurants. The townhouse was very comfortable and well equipped with all the basics and more! The property owner is helpful and responsive. A lovely yard and deck was a wonderful place to enjoy coffee in the mornings, watch the birds and squirrels in the afternoon, and enjoy a beverage in the evenings. Neighbors were lovely to meet as well. We expect to reserve this property again.
