About this Property

Adorable Bungalow in the heart of Historic Beaufort. Walk to many downtown attractions including the alluring waterfront park, museums, eateries, and shopping.
The home is the ideal setting for your visit to Beaufort SC.


NEWLY RENOVATED!!! Handsome!!!! Every surface is refreshed!
We've added a HUGE 4K UHD TV across from new couch and numerous VERY inviting chairs. The Internet has been upgraded to 5 times faster than the old speeds. We added 2 brand new super peaceful deep foam Queen Beds! The kitchen has been refreshed with great new pots and pans and a full range of glass ware. For our previous visitors, we hope that you will be delighted - and for our new visitors, we hope that you will find everything you want in a comfortable place to appreciate and discover Beaufort.
This little home is in the BEST location! It is just 7 brief blocks to our pretty waterfront park where you can savor one of the many 'porch swings' facing the Beaufort River. There are tons of eateries, stores, and galleries accessible from the park and from Bay Street. The historic Point neighborhood is just 4 blocks from the home. This is a great area to wander and discover - filled with antebellum mansions where planters and their families spent summers appreciating the nearly constant winds from the river. Also - this home is such a fashionable rental that we have converted our other little unit, Duke Cottage, to a Vacation Rental By Owner. If this one is booked, or if you need additional space, please look at Vacation Rental By Owner #2509986. We also newly added our 'health and exercise destination' Vacation Rental By Owner #631501, just 4 homes from the Spanish Moss Trail in the Hermitage Neighborhood.
This home is handsomely decorated - the living area has a wonderfully appealing couch, a generous lounge chair with a big ottoman, and 2 calming swivel club chairs. There is a gracious dining room that seats 6, with a chandelier above for ambiance. Several artistic visitors have captured our little bungalow on canvas and these pieces are proudly displayed. We get the very best visitors!
The bathroom used to be the low point of the home, but a few years ago we completely gutted it and started over. It has a step in shower with dual shower heads, each with their own control. The shower doors are thick frameless tempered glass with dazzling chrome fittings. In keeping with the era, the walls are white 'subway' tile and the floor is black and white mosaics. The vanity has a handsome granite top, and stores plenty of additional towels below. The window has an insert of frosted glass in front of it for privacy, while still accepting light into the room. It's very special.
The kitchen now has a brand new floor, appropriate for the era of the home - it’s crazy fun! It is thoroughly supplied and there is a full size washer dryer. We added shelves supported by antique metal brackets across the windows above the sink. We have put all the brand new pots and pans there for smooth access.
Each of the 2 bedrooms has a brand new high end super foam bed - and now BOTH BEDROOMS are QUEEN sized! Our all white linens are high thread count cotton. This is a very inviting, peaceful little home. A while back we switched out all of our Queen linens to white European Duvet & Shams for the cooler months - IF we ever have them this year - there will still be the high thread count sheets, but instead of our white cotton Matelassé Coverlets, you will have a freshly washed duvet cover and shams that can be used for sleeping. These are changed between each guest. It's more work, but it as we discovered, it is a better sleeping experience for the guest!
There is now a 55” Samsung 4K UHD SMART TV with ROKU and a DVD player. We keep that so you can watch the movies made right here in Beaufort - we give them!
Outside, we installed a GORGEOUS antique brick patio (10' x 50') with dining tables and chairs. We have moved the bespoke 'South Carolina Adirondack chair' seating, made by our old neighbor to the front porch. The seating group includes 2 lounge chairs with ottomans, and a settee. On the brick patio there is a 'ceiling fan on a stick' to help keep the 'skeeters’ away and give a wind when there isn't one. There is plenty of shade, so no umbrellas are needed.
Family Animals are allowed with prior approval and a returnable security deposit. Please discuss with us the kind and size of the pet you wish to bring so that we can determine it's appropriateness. We beg you not to accept family dogs and cats to tinkle inside on the charming rugs which have thick pads beneath. We also hope that any male beasts will NOT ‘mark’ our pretty new furnishings and DRAPERIES! *The yard is fenced, but PLEASE take responsibility for your pet, should it be approved. We cannot be responsible if you leave a gate or a door open of if a pet escapes.*
Please check out the map for restaurant and shopping recommendations. There is a binder in the home with more info and maps and menus. Feel complimentary to call us with any questions or recommendations!
Oh - ALL of our units are non-smoking inside and out. No exceptions.
*NOTE: ALL OF OUR Vacation Rental By Owner PROPERTIES ARE LEGALLY REGULATED SHORT TERM RENTALS IN THE CITY OF BEAUFORT, SC. WE HAVE BUSINESS LICENSES AND PAY ALL TAXES REQUIRED TO OPERATE THEM. ALL ARE CODE COMPLIANT, AND WE ARE ACCEPTED TO RENT ALL OF THEM FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 NIGHTS. WE ADHERE TO THE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL UNIT.
**TAX NOTE: Vacation Rental By Owner/HOMEAWAY ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA TO COLLECT ALL STATE AND LOCAL TAXES AND REMITT THEM DIRECTLY TO THE STATE UNDER THEIR OWN NUMBER. STARTING SEPTEMBER 1, 2019, THEY UNILATERALLY STARTED RETAINING THE 11% TAX THAT INCLUDES 5% SALES TAX, 2% STATE ATAX, 1% BEAUFORT COUNTY TRANSPORTATION TAX AND 3% CITY OF BEAUFORT ATAX. ON OR ABOUT SEPTEMBER 9, 2019, Vacation Rental By Owner/HOMEAWAY STOPPED COLLECTING THE 3% CITY OF BEAUFORT ATAX AND WITHOUT NOTICE CHANGED THE TAXES TO BE COLLECTED ON ALL FUTURE BOOKINGS TO EXCLUDE THIS TAX. THEY HAVE PUT US IN THE AWKWARD POSITION OF HAVING TO COLLECT AND REMIT THE 3% TAX SEPARATELY. THIS IS WHY YOU WILL BE RECEIVING A PAYMENT REQUEST FOR THE 3% ATAX.


How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send you guides with savings for rental properties, restaurants and activities. These guides can provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are you able to move your vacation week? Off-peak times provide sizeable bargains.
  • Plenty of vacation rental companies and owners offer savings for active duty and veteran members of the Military, or repeat individuals of the same property. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling gang is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some rentals are basically catered to specific travelers, whether it is soundside units with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with walkable access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have private kiteboarding launching areas. You will definitely get the best value from a home which most closely suits your ideal vacation setting, even if it costs a bit extra.
  • Rental companies and individual rental home owners commonly offer their customers the chance to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, provides travellers reimbursement of their rental costs for any nights missed as a result of health-related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned motel stay or additional fuel.

General Vacation Rental Advice

First-timers are sometimes surprised at the range and wide selection of short term vacation rentals available in the Beaufort, SC area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation rentals available makes it possible to find an optimum getaway to fit their Beaufort, SC group, from low-noise condominiums to huge event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rentals in Beaufort, SC are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. Owners often choose management companies to manage advertising, house cleaning services and routine maintenance.

We've developed a brief guide to help you get the most out of your vacation property experience.

Finding and booking the best rental property:

Before you start to book "Bungalow in the Historic District", review our short list of points to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Beaufort, SC rental properties book months (and up to a year) in advance. Booking your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is recommended, whenever possible. Many households prefer to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Area and Decide Dates

Oftentimes, the toughest portion of scheduling your trip is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, the rest is much easier.

Decide on a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Try to remember that most properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is suitable for the party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available on the internet. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

Confirm that "Bungalow in the Historic District" works with your price range *during your desired dates*. If multiple groups or relatives are sharing the cost, ensure everybody knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. One member of your party must be given the task of collecting contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the group trying to find? Do you want a rental home with outside lounge? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are mattress sheets included with the rental agreement, or do you need to take your own? Build a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Do members of your crew have specialized needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, include that into your search. The majority of vacation rental listings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure to include your pets. Although many vacation rentals allow pets, guidelines and fees fluctuate per rental. A number of restrictions may possibly eliminate a prospective rental. Make certain you study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *before* you book!

Start the Search

Several websites exist to match visitors with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, SC local rentals" for local rental management companies. Aside from offering distinctive rental properties, local companies offer you exceptional service..

Negotiate the Price

When you've spotted your dream rental, make sure your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an additional night. Your best chance for a reduced rate is shifting to an off-season week.

Go Through The Agreement

You really need to know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the regular rate, visitors will have to pay local taxes when booking "Bungalow in the Historic District", as well as various other additional fees which might be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including a dog fee, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

If you wish to Cancel

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It offers relief should disaster strike.

Complete the Booking

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Keep in mind that most rental agreements require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the rental owner.

Keep Your Contact's Information

Make sure to get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your cell phone and wallet.

Good job on booking your vacation rental! You're on the right path to a fabulous vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental home right away. We also recommend immediately phoning the property manager with a report of any damage, together with your request for any repairs. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts should be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of difficulties.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. Residents more often than not live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a trip a lot more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a fantastic source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to get the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Remember to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Check to make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for damages. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your vacation rental? Virtually all rental home web sites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing recommendations. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you will want to note that as part of your feedback.

Learn and Improve

How did they like the property? If everything was wonderful, next year's trip planning is going to be relatively easy. Maybe the rental home wasn't perfect, and you'll better know how to perfect your search for the next time.
