  • Cottage

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 beautiful, 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 conveniently walk to our charming waterfront park where there are tons of eateries, galleries, and stores. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a handsome 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 marvelous 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 supplied - 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 sizable 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 supplied with plenty of 100% cotton fluffy towels. Conveniences and a blow dryer are also included.


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 delightful 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.

Tips and Tricks for getting the best Beaufort vacation home experience:

When to reserve a Beaufort, SC rental home & When to go:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the Beaufort, SC area. To get the most suitable vacation home for your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at your favorite Beaufort, SC restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the high season.
  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups book their Summer rentals during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a discount.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer guests an option to purchase vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed days as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, SC area visitor guide magazines which include coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Beaufort, SC area magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

How to choose the best vacation rental in the Beaufort, SC area:

  • Begin by selecting a vacation week and a budget.
  • Note the number beds and the configuration your group needs. Cozy Cottage in the Heart of Historic District! has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our vacation rental search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is regularly accessible on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, email the host before you book your rental. Remember that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to establish what configuration is right for your vacation family.
  • Visiting for a single attraction? If so, use a map search to locate nearby rentals.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Some properties allow pets, but others do not. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask the host about your furry family members before booking.

Advice for your stay:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before leaving home. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the instructions to your phone.
  • To make sure that no damages are attributed to your visit, inspect the property for any problem areas when you arrive. Speak to the rental manager immediately to record any damages. If there is a dispute about who is responsible, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Property managers are there to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Be respectful of your neighbors. Often, nearby homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting noise limits and parking policies reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can typically help. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Lock your rental home while you're out. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Just prior to departing, take a final walk-through to make sure you did not leave anything behind. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental a final time and look for any damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the property manager isn't available, ensure that you take video of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your family have a wonderful vacation? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for clients to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or property management company was fantastic, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was imperfect and they failed to address it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
