Steps from the calming waves of St. Helena Sound on an oyster-shell beach, Southern Seaclusion is on Coffin Point Plantation of Forrest Gump fame. The 4-bedroom home sits on naturally landscaped grounds, boasting views of the Saint Helena Sound.

A covered, screened-in wrap-around veranda spanning three sides of the home, welcomes guests with a BBQ grill and ample patio furniture, overlooking the water.

The home opens on the upper level, where an open floor plan marries the living room, kitchen and dining areas. Styled in beach cottage décor, the living area features two comfy couches and elegant accent chairs facing a large-screen TV. A handsome game table stands ready for checkers or chess.

Steps away, the fully stocked kitchen invites cooking or snacking, with an island bar and extra seating for two. A charming dining area overlooking the water seats six. Vaulted ceilings, large picture windows and sliding glass doors to the wrap-around deck allow light to fill all three areas, with views from every angle.

Three of the home’s four bedrooms are also on this floor, each uniquely styled in beachy decor:

The Primary Suite features a king-sized bed, full-length mirror, en-suite bath and picture windows with Saint Helena Sound views.

Bedroom 2 is ideal for kids, has two twin beds and a pull-out trundle bed, sleeping up to four guests. This room has a small flat-screen TV and views of the tree-lined grounds.

Bedroom 3 has a queen-sized bed and picture window overlooking a giant oak tree. This room and Bedroom 2 share a full bathroom, complete with a washer and dryer.

Bedroom 4 is located in a private, waterfront apartment on the lower level with a separate lockable entrance. The space opens onto a living area with TV and an efficiency kitchen with refrigerator, stove, sink and dining table for two. A private bedroom features a queen-sized bed and private bath with standing shower.

On the ground floor, you’ll also find a ping pong table, accessible from the upper level, a TV, corn hole, small refrigerator, sink area, and a dryer for beach towels. Both garage doors open to allow access from this area to outside.

*We apologize, but the fireplace is not for guest use.

At sunset, stroll down a cobbled path facing the water to take in the west-facing views on a private deck area with seating for two. *The neighboring docks are located on private property, and are not for guest use.

Be prepared for loggerhead turtle and dolphins sightings -- or to add even more wildlife to your viewing list, as you’ll have a Hunting State Park Season Pass to use during your stay. With carport parking for one car and driveway parking for an additional two vehicles, you’ll have the freedom to explore the surrounding area.
This home has a 3-car maximum.

*Please be advised that there are dirt roads on the Coffin Point Plantation. These roads can get quite soggy during intense rains, but are still passable.

*For larger families and or groups, Southern Sea Esta is located right next door.

As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”

Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.

Excellent communication! We had no issues accessing the property and the property was as described. An earlier check-in option would have been nice. 5pm seems pretty late in our experience with vacation rentals but other than that we were very pleased with everything.

Natural Retreats went above and beyond. They communicated early and often by both phone and email. When I had a question, they returned my call the same day with the answer. The cleaning service in our particular rental was wonderful. They did more than I’ve ever been offered before. They basically took care of everything. What a great experience.

Best 2 months of my life. Stunning in every way possible.
DavidMay 2020
The house was well stocked and very inviting. The cleaning staff had the house sparkling when we arrived. And the rental agency was readily available and extremely helpful the few times we called with various questions. Overall, my family and I all enjoyed the home and location and had a great time!
ScottMarch 2020
It was very comfortable. All the little niceties that were in place... that is not always the case. We just felt that you really cared about your guest.

Perfect for a family attending MCRD graduation

I’ve rented many vacation rentals all over and this by far was the best. It was cheaper than everyone renting separate hotel rooms and eating out for all meals. The kitchen had everything you could imagine. We would like to come back when it’s warmer to take better advantage of the outdoors!

serenity with a view

I visited the home in October 2019. Everything was wonderful! When I go away, I want to cook, relax and disconnect. It is the best stocked kitchen I've ever seen. Even better than my own. Even if someone doesn't have the same desires for a vacation home as me, Beaufort is just a short drive and has plenty of things to do and restaurants to choose from.
