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 impressive, private, back yard patio. Duke Cottage is adjacent to our other property, Infant Charles, Vacation Rental By Owner #2512260. We have our Health and Exercise Destination, #2577085, just 4 homes from the Spanish Moss Trail in the Hermitage Neighborhood.
From this location, you can effortlessly walk to our handsome waterfront park where there are tons of eateries, galleries, and stores. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a pretty place to sit and appreciate 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 fabulous 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 huge 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 outfitted 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 enormous windows on 2 walls. The dining table is round glass and seats 4 comfortably. There is a handsome 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 sizable, it is bright and fresh and comes supplied 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 humongous umbrella at the other end. It is a splendid place to relax and savor the outdoors.
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.

Tricks and tips to get the best Beaufort, SC vacation home experience:
Get the most from your rental home budget:
- The sooner your group can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable vacation homes are booked early. Booking your rental six to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and book your rental.
- Summer months are the most expensive season in the Beaufort, SC area. To get the best value, consider changing your group's vacation to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and even October offer excellent weather, fewer crowds, and greatly reduced traffic.
- Hosts and Property managers sometimes offer special rates for veterans. Check with your property manager to see if special offers are available for your family before you book.
- Booking websites frequently offer customers an option to add vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
- Look for your local Beaufort, SC area magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitor guides have discounts for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.
Make a plan and pick the best Beaufort, SC rental home:
- First and foremost, have your group agree to dates and a spending budget.
- Note the number beds and the configuration you need. Cozy Cottage in the Heart of Historic District! has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms.
- Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts & types is almost always accessible on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, reach out to the property owner before booking your home. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in living rooms.
- If your group is vacationing with pets, you will need a pet-friendly vacation rental. Request information on breed, weight, and type requirements. Usually, property owners charge additional pet fees.
- Visiting for a specific event or attraction? Use a map search to locate nearby properties.
- Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
Advice for a great stay:
- Be sure you get the host's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or WIFI setup. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents a lot of issues.
- Keep the property locked while you are away! Don't let thieves spoil your vacation.
- During check-in, record any issues with the property and immediately alert the host. Record all coorespondence.
- Be respectful of your neighbors. Often, nearby homes are filled by local residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations is the right thing to do.
- Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
- Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, walk through the rental to reconfirm you've collected all of your things. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Go through the rental a final time and look for any damage. We recommend inspecting the property with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host is not available, ensure that you take photographs of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
- Did you have a great stay? Many rental management companies make it easy for guests to provide reviews. If your property and/or property management company was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was out of order and they failed to fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
