If you want privacy, this is the place for you. This getaway is located on a tiny peninsula of land. When my grandfather purchased over 250 acres of Lady’s Island back in the late 1940’s, he always considered this 4 acre tract the jewel in the crown. It was his getaway from town long before my parents constructed a home here. Pap would come and put his boat in down at the shell ramp.
He’d cast his net in Little Lucy for those scrumptious creek shrimp to put over his grits. He fished around the bend at one of the best fishin holes in Beaufort County. He always dreamed of living here. Its location on one of the highest bluffs overlooking deep water on Lady’s Island made it an ideal home site.
So in the 1970’s my mom designed this home and had Elias Pinkney build it. The brick home, which is shaded by live oaks draped in Spanish moss commands vistas of more than 400 feet of the shoreline of Little Lucy Creek and its salt marshes. Each bedroom has its own unique view of the water.
From the Master Bedroom you can see the sunrise or moonrise over the dock on Little Lucy Creek. But from your queen size bed you have another view that looks down the creek and toward the sunset.
From the guest bedroom you also have a view of the dock on the creek. From the third bedroom each twin bed has a view of the creek and salt marsh. Savor your morning coffee at the kitchen table or on the screen porch with its expansive vistas of the entire sunrise/sunset experience.
There is also seating out on the bluff so you can watch for the dolphins that swim by on the high tides or watch the stingrays, egrets and herons that come in to feed on low tide. We also have visits to the oyster bank below the bluff from a family of raccoons. Deer swim the creek to hide and feed among the magnolias and oaks. A pair of pileated woodpeckers has taken up residency in our piney woods by the dock.
This is our home and so we have tried to think of everything that might make your stay with us more comfortable. We have freshly refreshed the interior to reflect our own adore of Mid-Century modern furnishings( Very MadMen Like). There are handsome wood floors throughout. There are ceiling fans in nearly every room and central heat and AC when desired. The giant living room with its 20 foot vaulted ceiling and open dining area were made for entertaining. For those who would rather stay inside there is seating in front of a 55 inch LED wide screen T.V.This service is included through Direct TV. Computer access is through WIFI . A second TV is located in the Master Bedroom.
There is also seating in front of the wood burning stone fireplace. There is a huge desk for visiting writers, computer users or enormous kids working on jigsaw puzzles. The pillow top beds have soft sheets, cozy pillows and handsome coverlets.
The kitchen is entirely equipped with new appliances, cookware, china glassware and silverware. There are two and a half bathrooms for everybody’s comfort and privacy. There is also generous closet space throughout the home so that you can store all your gear and belongings during your visit.
The porch is equipped with seating for all and an outdoor patio has a gas grille. The new dock is equipped with a float and kayak launch. Or you can put your boat, kayak or canoe in down at the shell ramp right on the property. There is also a boat landing two miles away at Sam’s Point where Forest Gump was filmed.
Our getaway is within painless drive of Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. It is @five mins. from all the necessary stores. A ten min. drive over a breathtaking bridge will get you to Downtown Beaufort with its stores, carriage rides and eateries. In fifteen you can be at historic Port Royal and Paris Island. In twenty mins. you can be at one of the most impressive beaches on the east coast at Hunting Island State Park and Lighthouse. There is a complimentary pass to enter the park available during your stay.
For golfers there is a terrific public course at Cat Island . For nature lovers there are boat tours of the ACE basin. A notebook is available with information about our favorite things to do in the area and places to eat, shop and visit.
Or you may be like us and just sit on that porch watching the world of the tides come and go. They say that once you have smelled the pluff mud it gets in your veins and pulls you back just like the tides.

Tricks and tips to get the best Beaufort, SC rental experience:
Getting the most from your rental budget:
- In the Beaufort, SC area, The sooner you can reserve a home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable rental homes are reserved very early. Reserving your rental home six to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation home.
- To find the best rental home for your budget, we strongly suggest booking in Fall or Spring months. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of giant crowds at local restaurants, tours, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Beaufort, SC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
- Property management companies sometimes offer rate reductions for veterans and active duty military. Ask your host or property manager if discounts are available for your family.
- Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer customers an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for additional information.
- Find a copy of your local Beaufort, SC area magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, travel guides contain money saving offers on nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.
Filter your search:
- Start by having your group choose a vacation week and a max budget.
- Determine how many beds and the configuration your group needs. Private Deep Water Dock, Near Beaufort, PI and Beach. has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
- Specific information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is usually accessible online. If not, reach out to the property owner before reserving the rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches.
- If your family is vacationing with pets, search for a pet-friendly property. Make sure to ask for specifics on breed, size, and type requirements. Often, property managers charge pet deposits and fees.
- Does your family require special amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the best rental home.
- Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before booking
Know before you go:
- Review arrival and departure procedures before leaving home. Save the directions to your phone, and take a printed copy.
- Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, television set or thermostat. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent many concerns.
- Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the rental while you are away, just like you would back home.
- To make certain that damages aren't attributed to your family's visit, inspect for any problem areas during check in. Get in touch with the host right away to relay any issues. If there is a dispute, having the recorded issues and contact attempts will be valuable.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disrespectful vacationers disrupting your life at home. Employ the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and scenic spots you would've not otherwise known about!
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to launch your kayaks, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
- Re-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all of your belongings at check-out. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Inspect the property one final time and scan for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever possible. If the host isn't available, take photographs of the property to record its condition.
- Did you have a fantastic stay? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for customers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or property manager was fantastic, they would love to hear it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
