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 South Carolina

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.

Serene, relaxing, clean, spacious

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 8 stayed here comfortably for my son's USMC graduation from Parris Island. Even after enduring a tropical storm (resulting from hurricane Irma) just days before our arrival this home was PERFECT. The owner was incredibly quick to communicate. An easy 20-min drive to Parris Island. Nearby city conveniences: restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, etc. We were too busy to go to beaches but loved sitting on the dock looking for porpoises when we could! Lots of room to spread out and be alone but plentiful seating when we all wanted to hangout together.

Enjoyed the stay immensely

  • 5 of 5

The rental house is well maintained. It has a long pier that provides a relaxing sitting area with great views of the river. While the fishing in this area is not good this time of year, crabbing off the pier was excellent.

Awesome Vacation 2017!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely "home away from home" home! It was accommodating of our large family in space and function. The decor was warm, inviting, and so comfortable. The outdoor living space was amazing. The private floating dock was hit wth the family! Location to Beaufort. Port Royal, Charleston, Hilton Head, and Savannah was quite convenient. We would certainly choose to stay at this particular home again if in the area.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a great time! Most people don't realize that Charleston and Savannah are only an hour or so away.

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first VRBO rental. We loved it! The location was perfect and convenient. The neighborhood was quiet and the views were phenomenal. We didn't get to spend much time at the property, as we were there for my son's graduation from MCRD at Parris Island, and our days started early, ended late, and pretty were full. However, the house/property was neat and clean and offered ample living space for our family of 10.

My family of 10 loved this place. Plenty of room, with all of the necessities.

I would highly recommend this home. We loved the dock and saw dolphins swimming close by several times. Our son graduated from Marine boot camp, and this was a short drive away. Plenty of grocery stores near by. Thanks for a memorable mini vacation!
