PORT ROYAL lies in the heart of a biologically rich estuarine ecology. Visitors come from all over to experience and explore what native South Carolinians have come to know as the Lowcountry. What makes the Lowcountry special? A lot, but from an environmental perspective it’s the ability to explore many different land types including salt marsh, forestland, brushland, fallow field and freshwater ponds. In combination, these habitats support a diversity of bird and plant life. Bird wildlife commonly observed include waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds, raptors, and neo-tropical migrants, with large concentrations of white ibis, herons, and egrets.

I, along with three of my best friends, stayed at the Old Port Royal Cottage during my wedding weekend in October. Everything was absolutely perfect all the way around! From the inside being brand new to the fire pit out back, we enjoyed every second of our time there. So much so we are renting it again in April for my brother's wedding. The owners are wonderful people and very accommodating. I would highly recommend staying there to anyone - you will not be disappointed!

We stayed at this cottage for our son's graduation from USMC boot camp at Parris Island. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The owners were awesome and met us at the house to tell us about the house and the area. We found it very easy to get on the island in the morning as all the traffic was coming from the other direction (Hilton Head, etc). Port Royal is a quiet and charming town, and it offered us a nice pleasant place to retreat after some very busy days. We highly recommend this home and plan to return when our other son graduates as well.
I am way behind on this review. I am so sorry Alice, I thought I had written a review.
Perfect home for a Marine graduation.
Beautiful home & wonderful owners.
Only 5 minutes from the Parris Island gate. We had 6 people staying & it wasn't even crowded. Alice takes exceptional care of their home & property. We had 3 teenagers, a 23 yr old & us for our youngest son's graduation.
Due to Hurricane Matthew, our schedules were completely off course, but Alice made sure we were comfortable & had everything we needed. Due to graduation being pushed to a later time, Alice made sure we had an extra night to stay to get some sleep. Our Marine got to enjoy not only the house, but also the beach. We were even able to have a few Marine families at the home for a get together. The deck was great for this. And I loved being able to go out there to watch the sun come up with my coffee. So peaceful !
We made so many memories on this trip & also some new friends!
We can't wait to book again for a family vacation!
We love Port Royal & The Sands...and this cottage is wonderful! Tastefully decorated. Quiet, private, wonderful. We will be back!!!
The location, size, and furnishings were ideal for our trip to Port Royal for our son's graduation from Parris Island. Alice was very accommodating before and during our visit. If we make it back to the area we'd definitely choose this house again.
The owners were very kind and take great pride in their home and it shows! We were there for my son's Marine graduation, there was a perfect amount of room for the six of us traveling! Very nice upgrades!
I would highly recommend this home as a place to stay for any reason!
I can't say enough great things about this lovely cottage. We stayed here to attend our son's graduation from Parris Island. The owner, Alice, has gone over the top to provide her guests all the comforts of home. From having to use of a full kitchen and laundry, to prvoiding all the linen and towels, to even having shampoo and extra toothbrushes, she has thought of everything. And I can't forget the golf cart. Our new Marine thought that was the best part! The location is minutes from the base and everything else you could want to visit. We definitely want to come back for a longer visit next time.
The beach is within walking distance, as well as local restaurants and shops. Located within minutes of Parris Island, Lady's Island and downtown Beaufort. This house is on a quiet street in a very nice neighborhood! Paris Avenue (the main street of the Old Village) periodically hosts Street Music events throughout the year. Port Royal also hosts an annual soft shell crab festival in late April and a community oyster roast in late October.
The hurricane scene from the 1994 film Forrest Gump was filmed in the town's dock area.
