Very nice property in a great location
There were only four of us in this special old home that could accommodate twelve or thirteen. We loved it. You need to understand that this is an old home and want that feel and charm. Many small children and persons needing handicapped access might not be the best fits. My wife and I took the downstairs bedroom. All other bedrooms are on the second floor and it's a long staircase. Debra would not have enjoyed climbing the stairs several times a day. With those cautions I say again it's a charming old home. Our 17 year old granddaughter and her friend loved the upstairs. It was hot when we were there but the AC worked great. The home is in the old historic part of town. It's an easy walk to Bay Street and the waterfront park so it's a location that can't be beat. Parking is a bit of an issue in Beaufort but the home has three parking places that are reserved for the home. I think you can also park on the street but if you have more than three cars that should be double checked with the owners. Our cleaning deposit took a couple of weeks to be returned but I believe the owner's system is to do refunds at the end of the month. If we were to plan another trip to Beaufort, especially if we were adding our daughter, son in law, and young grandson we would definitely stay here again.
Lovely home with a little AC problem
Overall the house was great and centrally located. I only gave the house four stars because we had trouble with the AC and because of the check out instructions.
We had trouble getting the AC to a comfortable temperature the whole trip. For starters, the house was 81 degrees when we arrived and took a very long time to lower even a couple of degrees. This was only made worse by the fact that the temperature outside was a balmy 96 degrees. Even after talking with the host and turning on the additional window units, we were still unable to get the temperature below 76 degrees. We also had trouble keeping the AC at a constant temperature. The minute we got it to a comfortable temperature, it would suddenly start to increase again. The thermostat was set to increase to 79 degrees at night, making sleeping uncomfortable. I think the house's HVAC system is not quite strong enough to handle the South Carolina heat.
I also wish that the beds had been made when we arrived. We arrived later in the evening and had to make up our beds before we could go to sleep. The house also includes an additional $50 fee if you want the host to wash the linens after you leave. This fee is not included in the price listed on HomeAway and must be paid by check. Even having paid the additional fee, we still had to strip all of the beds, start a load of laundry, and take out the trash before we left. This added about thirty minutes of extra steps to our departure. I understand that the house's cleaning fee is relatively low for the size of the house ($85 for the whole stay), but I would rather have had a higher cleaning fee that included the cost of making the beds up for arrival and that allowed us to avoid the additional check out steps.
Finally, you have to bring your own toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. It would be nice if those things were included.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your review. As far as the AC, it is in perfect working condition and is sized correct for the home. When it is in the upper 90's outside, 76 in the main house is about all the units can possibly do. With the window units in the bedrooms, it should get well below that at night. We have the units routinely inspected to make sure everything is working as it should.
I am sorry about the confusion about the beds and paper products, but we do put that on the VRBO listing and in the contract and check in info.
With the beds, our housekeeper does all of the homes she cleans this way, as do most housekeepers in Beaufort.
Thank you again Riley for staying with us! We would love to have you back anytime!
Great house and location
We loved the house, so authentic and beautiful with commodious sleeping arrangements. The location couldn't be beat, we didn't take the cars out at all over the week. It was clean and bright, with ample towels and linens.
Perfect location to enjoy city's beauty
Stayed in this beautiful home for a long weekend to celebrate our young Marine's birthday currently stationed at the base. There were 9 of us counting 3 teenagers. Plenty of room for us to enjoy family time, meals, yet have our privacy too. Owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs. Will certainly return if given an opportunity. This home is a jewel of this historic city. Appreciate the owner keeping it's genuine history intact.
Great Location in Downtown Historic District of Beaufort!
Great older home in perfect location for enjoying downtown Beaufort! Everything is walking distance. 2 great front porches for relaxing and sipping your beverage of choice. In our case, coffee and chocolate from 2 shops nearby! We loved our visit. Great house for families!
This property was excellent! Right in the heart of Beaufort, we walked everywhere in this quaint, historic town. Eight people stayed in this home, and we didn't feel crowded at all. The home was very clean and the owners were very accommodating to our specific needs. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay here!
