Anyone out there interested in a great deal on a beach house whenever you need it? We are considering options for our rental house in Beaufort, SC, as it looks like our current renters may be relocating.
We are looking into renting it as a vacation house/nightly-monthly rental. This would require furnishing the house to fit these needs, as well as funding the first few months that may take to get it ready. It may be a set term, like renewing yearly, or something like that, as a sponsor.
So, I am wondering, would anyone out there be interested in being a part of a sponsorship team in exchange for having use of the house for only the cost of having it cleaned afterward? You would be able to use the house, first come first serve (with a potential limit on FCFS, if you use it regularly and someone who uses it less frequently would like the same days/week).
If you request the house within 30 days or less (to allow for it to be rented if possible before that time), you could use the house for the cleaning fee. If you need to plan ahead more, you could get it for a discount, which would decrease the further away from the stay you need to reserve (like a 60% discount >30 days prior to stay, 40 discount >60 days… something like that). Ultimately, we would still have to have rental income to keep the house, of course – so short notice would allow you to use whenever for nearly free, depending on how often you use it.
This would be great for anyone looking to have an awesome vacation in the low-country, whenever you want – more or less, or for locals to provide privacy for out of town guests. The deal would be either a once yearly payment or a small monthly payment. The amount is TBD at this point, but we would make it as affordable as possible.
Here is the basic info on the house:
1,624 sq ft
large master suite with large walk-in closet,
large master bath with large shower and garden tub
2 car garage
mud room with storage closet and utility sink
fenced yard with sturdy swing set structure (frame only, can be used for child’s swings or for porch swing) and a baby orange tree that will hopefully have fruit this next winter
upgraded finishing touches including beautiful crown molding, tile in both bathrooms, and upgraded light fixtures
Screened porch with additional patio
We might also add a play structure for small children
Considering allowing pets
The home is located on Lady’s Island, which is an island in the Beaufort, South Carolina community/Sea Islands. It is about 20 minutes from Hunting Island, and if possible, we would purchase a yearly pass for the state park/beach to be used by anyone renting the home while they are there. We’d have to be sure that was legal, though. 🙂
It is about 5 minutes from downtown Historic Beaufort, which has cool shops, numerous awesome local restaurants, historic tours, and two great playgrounds/parks. This is especially nice for the numerous festivals in Beaufort and Port Royal.
Hilton Head (beach and resort community) is about a 45 minute drive, and Bluffton (outlet shopping/chain dining) is about 30 minutes away. Savannah Ga, is about an hour away (very, very cool city), and Charleston is about an hour and a half away – both great day trips during your stay.
I know we can get flights from here for about $59 most of the time, to Charleston so even if you don’t live close, this could still be a great idea…just look into flight info and car rentals. 🙂
