Adorable bungalow with all the amenities of home. Within walking distance to shopping, dining and the waterfront park of Beaufort, SC.
I have been a Airbnb and Vacation Rental By Owner host for over 10 years, I know what you want.
This adorable home is a quirky little 2 bedroom 1 bath 1940's bungalow located in the heart of Historic Downtown Beaufort.
We have finished the addition of a handsome, private, back yard patio. Duke Cottage is adjacent to our other property, Infant Charles, Vacation Rental By Owner #2512260. We have just added our Health and Exercise Destination, #631501, just 4 homes from the Spanish Moss Trail in the Hermitage Neighborhood.
From this location, you can effortlessly walk to our delightful waterfront park where there are tons of eateries, galleries, and stores. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a splendid place to sit and savor 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 phenomenal area for leisurely strolls.
Inside the home there is central AC (and heat), as well as whisper peaceful ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms. It has a comfortable living room with a 40' Sony Bravia flat panel TV, HD cable and a DVD player.
The kitchen is sizable 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 included - as are modest appliances like a coffee maker, toaster, blender, and a hand mixer. The kitchen is also supplied 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 huge windows on 2 walls. The dining table is round glass and seats 4 comfortably. There is a pretty curved metal chandelier for ambience.
The master bedroom has a 2011 Sealy Posturepedic bed and boxspring with 100% cotton high thread sheets and fluffy new pillows. We have switched out all of our Queen linens 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 bed, except that it is a twin. We tried having a trundle, but it is too cramped to be cozy, so the home is limited to 3 guests.
There is one bathroom, and while it isn't enormous, it is bright and fresh and comes outfitted with plenty of 100% cotton fluffy towels. Conveniences and a blow dryer are also supplied.
The private patio has a dining table with 4 chairs and an umbrella, and 2 chaise lounges and a giant umbrella at the other end. It is a enchanting place to relax and appreciate the outdoors.
Family Animals are allowed with prior approval and a returnable deposit. Please let me know what kind and size of pet you wish to bring so we can discuss it's appropriateness! *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.*
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.

You'll enjoy lower rental rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at the beach and popular Beaufort, SC attractions. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
- In the Beaufort, SC area, The sooner you can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are reserved early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and book your rental home.
- Some property management companies offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your host or property manager if rate reductions are available for your group.
- Management companies and individual rental owners often offer guests an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.

- Specific details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is commonly available on booking websites. If not, reach out to the property management company before you reserve the home.

Make sure to ask before booking, and study your rental agreement! Pet fees or charges might be applied to your invoice.
- Get the owner's contact number and check in/check out procedures for your rental. We recommend storing the manager's information in your smartphone.
- To make certain damages aren't attributed to your visit, record any problem areas during check in. E-mail the rental manager right away to relay any pre-existing damages. If there is a dispute, having the recorded concerns and contact attempts will be very helpful.

- Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
- Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are out, just like you would back home.
- Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all belongings at departure. Check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Inspect the rental one final time and keep an eye out for damage. We advise inspecting the property with the host whenever possible. If the host is not available, remember to take video of the rental to record its condition.
- Did you have a excellent stay? Many rental managers make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property manager was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was defective and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
