Location Details

Despite the laid-back nature of Beaufort, there is plenty to do around town! Get a feel for the rich history of the city with a walking tour through Janet's Walking History Tour. If you're looking for a more relaxing tour, visit SoutherRose Buggy Tours to leisurely see the area in the comfort of a carriage.

Take the family to Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park for an afternoon spent along the Beaufort River; strolling along the pathways, fishing for trout, or enjoying one of the festivals held throughout the year. In town for graduation? MCRD Parris Island is an easy 30-minute drive away!

If you brought your boat along, park it at the home's dock and take it out to explore the water and find a secret fishing hole.

Spend the day on the beach at Hunting Island State Park! This 5,000-acre park is home to tons of wildlife, 5 miles of beach, and a historic lighthouse. Golfers will want to book a tee time at Sanctuary Golf Club for a memorable round at this nature-filled course.

  • Perfect Place, Perfect View, Perfect Location


    Sunset cottage was absolutely perfect for our visit. It was the perfect place and setting to represent Beaufort. It was our very first time in South Carolina and I could not have picked a better place for us to stay. We were so impressed with the beautiful town. Besides the excitement of being there for our sons graduation and becoming a Marine, our stay at the cottage was exactly what we needed to feel relaxed and comfortable. The book that the host provided to the guest was so helpful and useful when exploring Beaufort. We were able to squeeze in a lot in our one free day away from graduation festivities. Great recommendations! The location was perfect we were only 20 min from Parris Island & the Marine Base. We had no trouble at all getting there and back. The pictures we got just from the backyard were awesome!!! The cottage was clean and very spacious and the decor was very detailed throughout. We would definitely stay there again if we ever get the chance to go back.

  • Perfect Paukie Island Cottage & Stay!


    We so enjoyed our couple's stay at this well-equipped, charming cottage with beautiful views of the marsh and river. Immaculate and comfortable with lovely nautical touches, it was the perfect base for exploring the Spanish Moss trail on our bikes, hiking at Hunting Island State Park, kayaking off the dock (we had tandem kayak delivered) and enjoying the town and waterfront in Beaufort. Only drawback was the jets from nearby air station can be quite loud. The intense activity may have been due to crisis in Ukraine. Hope to return in the future!

  • Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views


    Beautiful clean well appointed cottage situated perfectly for privacy and expansive views!! Ideal for taking in the sights and sounds of the lowcountry. Ever changing river views. We took in the sunset and watched the dolphins feeding off the dock. Spent the day on the waterfront in downtown Beaufort which was only a 15 minute drive away. I highly recommend this home and will be back again myself in the future.

  • A beautiful gem in the Low Country!


    Sunset Cottage is gorgeous. My husband, two teenage children and I spent an amazing week there, enjoying all it had to offer. The house itself is so comfortable and has everything you might need. The outside patio and dock are amazing. We had two 2-man kayaks delivered for the week and made great use of them. We swam and fished off the dock and marveled at getting to see dolphins gliding around daily. It was so exciting when the Marine jets flew around as well. Tim was a great host and was very attentive to our questions. Thank so much for a wonderful week in the Low Country!
