The Earlier, The Better

Like many desirable vacation spots, In Beaufort, SC the best vacation rentals are booked very early. To guarantee the best selection of vacation rentals, we recommend searching and reserving your Beaufort, SC getaway 6-12 months in advance, whenever you can. Many groups prefer to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Find your Spot and Determine Dates

Consensus can often be challenging between close relatives, but the moment this challenging part is complete everything will quickly fall in place.

How Many Beds?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that many homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Generally rental listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

Does the chosen rental suit your budget during that preferred Summer week? Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends well before booking a costly rental. A single individual in your party will need to be given the task of collecting payments and accepting responsibility for the entire rental price at time of reservation.

Vacation home Features

Special Considerations
