About the property

Very Nice Home With Fantastic Views. Deep Water Dock and Close to Parris Island

Enjoy the fantastic views from this comfortable home on McCalley's Creek. Catch shrimp, fish, and crabs from the dock or simply sit and watch the porpoises swim by. The 10x20 floating dock can accommodate most any size boat and the community boat landing is just a minute away. Bring your boat, waverunners, or kayaks and enjoy!

The house is close to Beaufort and Parris Island and it's an easy drive to the beach. All the furniture is new as of May 2015 and the house has a very relaxed feel. The house sleeps 10+ with four bedrooms Two bedrooms are on the main level (both with queen beds) and two bedrooms are upstairs (one with queen beds and a daybed and another with two twins and a daybed), There are three bathrooms as well as a fourth bathroom under the house.

NOTE: Linens ARE provided (sheets, towels, etc.) as are paper towels, toilet paper, dishwashing detergent, etc.

The screened in back porch is very comfortable and has a ceiling fan to provide a breeze as you unwind at the end of the day. The front porch has four rocking chairs if you prefer relax that way.

The house has cable tv (with Showtime) and Wi-Fi internet service. Of course, you probably won't use much of either with all the entertainment options that Beaufort provides.

The house is an easy drive to Parris Island for graduation. In fact, my youngest son graduated from PI in December 2012 and is currently stationed in Okinawa! So, yes, I am very pro-military.

No Smoking in the house, please

About William Howerton

I grew up in Beaufort (working on a shrimp boat..believe it or not), graduated from high school here and graduated from the University of South Carolina. I've lived in England and many states in the US. However, I am happiest in the Beaufort and call the Low Country home. Even though I travel much of the time for work, I bought this house so my two boys could experience growing up on the water. I think all kids should have the experience of building castles on a sand bar, catching blue crabs on a string, and swimming in a saltwater creek.

William Howerton purchased this house in 2005

Why William Howerton chose Beaufort area

My best friend in high school (and still one of my best friends to this day) grew up in the house next to this house. In fact, I helped his family build their house! So, when this house became available in 2005 it was an easy decision to buy it. I spent many hours in the saltwater creek and buying this house was like "coming home". This has always been a kid friendly neighborhood and is a great place for people of all ages.

What makes this house unique

Being on deep water has all the advantages you would. Shrimp, fish and crabs are easily available to catch. You can sit under the covered dock and just watch the tide roll away as you relax in the to the sounds of wildlife. In the morning you can drink coffee on the covered porch and watch the sunrise. The colors of the sunrise in Beaufort are truly beautiful. I could write about the serenity of being on the water all day. However, it is something that has to be experienced to be understood.

Deep water home with docl

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home tucked away near the water. Private dock, awesome porch and a screened in patio overlooking the water. incredible sunrise and views. We really enjoyed our stay and definately would come again. I only wish we could have stayed more than 3 nights. We came down for my nephew's graduation from boot camp. The owner, Bill, is very accommodating and left us lots of information about Beaufort, restaurants, surrounding areas and directions to Parris Island. Only complaint are the gnats or sand fleas? that are all over the island! Bring your repellant!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! The sand gnats (or "no see ums " as they are sometimes called) can be a nuisance in the spring. They are one of the few drawbacks of coastal living. Bug spray or Avon's Skin So Soft is handy to have around when outside. Congratulations to your nephew!

Fall Fishing Getaway!

Three retired couples that enjoyed the stay at your VRBO home. House is very well equipped and very clean. The deep water dock was a plus for the fishermen. Bill, thanks again for the use of your facilities and your excellent customer service.

Wonderful our son became a Marine! !!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fabulous. Mr. Howertons home is a paradise . Gorgeous views of the water .The dock is wonderful. It has a light for at night and during the day the fan is really great keeping you cool . The sound of a fan lulls me to sleep , which I did in a comfy chair after family day on Parris Island . We needed this perfect home to stay at while we went to our sons graduation from MCRD . He is a Marine and we could not be more proud.!!!The srceened back porch also with a fan was a fun place for a game of Yatzee with our 3 all grown children and my son's fiance and my son in law too. Inside the home is decorated in a beach seaside design. The colors are all soothing to the mind and the eye . The kitchen is not all new , but neither is mine , but like mine it's perfectly clean and everything works .All the beds were very comfortable and the sheets were nice and soft . We didn't sleep to much because we were there for the 3 day scheduled graduation events from Parris Island, but the sleep we all got was solid heaven . 3 bathrooms :-) perfect for 7 people. No waiting for anything . . Nice flat screen TV in the huge living room . We never sat out on the front porch only because there wasn't enough time. Lawn perfectly mowed . Washer and dryer work great . I can't say enough about this house . I would love to go back there for a full vacation aND really get to enjoy it !!!! What a fantastic time for my family. Semper Fidelis

Very lovely and clean home! Perfect for our stay for our son's Marine graduation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. It was so nice to relax on the dock after a busy day at Parris Island. The drive to the base was easy and plenty of stores/restaurants nearby. Our little ones had plenty of room to run out back. The owner Bill was friendly and responsive and also the parent of a Marine!!! Semper Fi!
