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
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
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.
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.
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
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!
This house is really a hidden gem. A beautiful home very close to the water. We return to the area each year on family vacation and have found the home for our future stays. Spacious rooms with plenty of sleeping room. Covered parking makes it nice as summer rains come in as well as the screened in porch. Don't pass this home up!
The accommodations were just what we needed for our short stay in Beaufort. Our son was graduating from Marine Boot Camp and we needed a place large enough for our family. This property was perfect.
The owner was very attentive. We stayed here for our son's Graduation and it was very comfortable and relaxing. The beds and furniture are comfortable. What I was impressed with a lot of cold air and plenty hot water as we had a large group.
The house was an awesome home for us. It was our home away from our home as we held a small Rehearsal Dinner for our Son and now Daughter in Law who decided to get married in the beautiful area of Beaufort, S.C. A Low Country wedding style held at the Log Cabin in MCAS. Our family members , the Best Man and a couple of Grooms Man were delighted to be in such beautiful and roomy home and they absolutely enjoyed their time spent playing yard games and at the dock where they had fun swimming during high tie. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Bill, the lucky owner of this amazing home was very helpful and easy to reach. We are eager and look forward to return so my wife and I will be able to relax and truly enjoy the stay in such beautiful and comfortable home. Now all we have left are beautiful pictures and amazing memories!!
