Our bungalow has a distant view of the Beaufort River and is located under the canopy of a 100-year old live oak tree that is delightfully uplit at nighttime. It is a 5-min. walk to some great restaurant options here on Ladys Island, and a short walk to all that downtown Beaufort has to offer.
Attention EV car owners, we now offer a Level 2 EV charging-station at the bungalow. Inquire for details.
Upon your arrival at Live Oak Cottage, expect a entirely-outfitted kitchen with all cooking silverware and essential supplies supplied (spices, oils, coffee, sugar, cooking gear, etc.), complimentary wifi, filtered tap water, refrigerator with ice maker, gas stove, quartz countertops. 2 TVs with Roku streaming sticks, complimentary YouTubeTV account, USB ports throughout, and driveway parking for 2 cars. 2 bathrobes, memory foam bed, the additional half bath, and laundry are big pluses.
We have happily hosted honeymooners, birthday getaways, anniversaries, and Marine graduation families. We are close to a elegant 10-acre park, boating, fishing, hiking, golfing, historic downtown, shopping, eateries, museums, historical landmarks, walking and buggy tours, and much more. 10-min. drive to MCRD Parris Island for those families wanting to book for their adored one’s graduation event.
We are a 15-min. walk/2 min drive to downtown Beaufort, over the swing bridge (featured in “Forrest Gump”), keep an eye out for dolphins and osprey nests as you cross over the Beaufort River, also known as the Intercoastal Waterway.
There are many options right here on Ladys Island, without crossing the bridge. Our bungalow is a 5 min. walk from a growing number of extraordinary dining options including the Dockside seafood restaurant with a marvelous screened-in outdoor bar and deck featuring sweeping vistas of Factory Creek. Q’s Chicken BBQ Shack offers a more casual dining experience. And then a must-visit is Beaufort’s most iconic locals bar/restaurant - The Filling Station, their outside deck overlooking Factory Creek is fantastic as is their casual menu.
The Whitehall Public Boat landing is two blocks away, where you can arrange fish charters, kayak and SUP rental tours to discover the Beaufort River and beautiful Factory Creek. There is also a generous public fishing pier adjacent to the boat landing...we have it all right here!
For your shopping needs: We are a 2-min. drive to ALL shopping supplies - grocery, pharmacy, fast food, Walmart, liquor store - yet our bungalow is in a peaceful, leafy neighborhood just off Route 21.
For trips to the beach we supply Beach chairs, beach towels, beach bag, umbrella, and a cooler.
We offer ample secured storage inside the front barn doors for your kayaks, bicycles, fishing gear.
Beaufort is a great home base for exploring the Lowcountry. Savannah is 45 mins. south, and Charleston is an hour and 15 min. to the north. Beaufort is a ideal jumping-off point to discover the Lowcountry in both directions! We are happy to recommend itineraries in both cities.
We provide all the amenities of home in an idyllic gorgeous setting. This bungalow has our guest’s complete comfort in mind, and it is a haven from which to discover this fantastic part of the country.
We live on-site and are always available via text and cell.

How to find the best Beaufort rental experience:
When to book & When to go:
- To get the most suitable rental home within budget, we recommend booking in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of large crowds at Beaufort, SC restaurants, beaches, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
- The earlier your group can book a vacation rental, the easier your search will be. The best vacation rentals are reserved early. Reserving your vacation property up to 12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
- Some hosts and property managers offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your host or property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group before you book.
- Property managers frequently offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for details.
- Look for your local Beaufort, SC visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great information, visitor guides have offers and deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.
How to pick the perfect vacation home in the Beaufort, SC area:
- First and foremost, have your group commit to a vacation week and a spending budget.
- Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your family requires. New Beaufort Cottage, Best Location, Close to Everything! has 1 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
- Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is often accessible online. If they are not listed, email the property management company before booking the vacation property. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to establish what is suitable for your vacation family.
- Are you looking for specific amenities? Most rental websites include search filters with amenity lists.
- Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
- Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Acceptable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask your host about your furry family members before booking.
Advice for a fantastic stay:
- Store the owner's information in your smartphone.
- Make a record of any damages to the property upon arrival, and immediately contact the property manager. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that can be beneficial if a dispute arises.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call prevents a lot of issues.
- Be a good neighbor. Often times, nearby homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting noise limits and parking rules is the right thing to do.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can often help. Who better to ask where to charter a fishing boat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
- Lock your rental home while you're out and about. Keep your property safe!
- Double-check every room of the property to make sure that you've packed all personal items at check-out. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
- Leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent reviews to drive new bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other families will be thankful you shared your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to solve it.
