The Location. This house is the closest to the Sands beach. Five min. drive to Parris Island and a ten min. drive to Beautiful Beaufort.

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!

Wonderful cottage that offers all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

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 owners of this gorgeous home thought of everything. We didn't want to leave! The furnishings and decorations were perfect for the area, beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were clean and modern. The owner is very personable and made us feel very welcome. This is a top notch place. USMC families; this is the perfect place for graduation. Only minutes from Parris Island and everything you need is in this community.

Very clean and beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this home are so sweet and accommodating! Alice showed us around her house, was very organized, and even had a binder full of local favorites to eat. We were in Port Royal for my cousins graduation from Parris Island and it was the perfect location for this. I loved the decor and how cozy it felt. My family and I had a great time in this home and made a lot of great memories! We will definitely be coming back!

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.
