Property description

Vacation never felt so good. Whether you're planning a fiesta with friends or an extended family gathering, this beautiful beach home on tranquil Harbor Island is the place to land. Nestled among palm and cedar trees and a short stroll on the connecting boardwalk to the beach and ocean, this fully equipped home boasts a large great room with floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous views, four bedrooms (two with full ocean views and walk-out deck access!) and three full baths, and a spacious kitchen and dining area.

If you want to spend most of your time outdoors there is a fully screened porch or for awe-inspiring views head up the spiral staircase to the rooftop deck! What a spectacular way to watch a sunrise or sunset while sipping some island punch! And if you have spent the day at the beach, there is a hot/cold outside shower to rinse off that sand before heading indoors.

This home is in a secure, gated community and has access to pools (if the ocean water just is not for you), tennis courts and other amenities. There is also a great golf cart rental for $200/week to get you where you're going easily! This is a little slice of heaven just waiting for you to arrive!

On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides. At low tide, you may find that you walk out about 300 yards to get to the ocean. The beach also changes from month to month and year to year. Due to the shallow grade of our beaches, there are very little waves to speak of on our beaches, which is great for little ones. For the folks in your party that want to body surf, we have Hunting island State park open 7 days/week.

Sit on the porch and watch the tide roll in. Nothing could be better! 05/03/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Our family decided to take our cubs to be beach for the first time in South Carolina. From arriving on the secluded private island to walking into our house, we were instantly relaxed and ready for a great vacation. The house was immaculately kept up, and we loved the layout of the house. There are two bedrooms on one side, and two bedrooms on the other, giving the house a very private feel to keep those bear in-laws at a safe distance. The master bedroom was perfect with a private porch right off the ocean that provided the lullaby of waves every night. The room had a perfect amount of room for our cub to sleep in the pack and play (in perfect shape) that we rented. The master bathroom with wooden walls and jetted tub made it feel like it was a spa.
The house is suited perfectly for a large group. The living room had plenty of sitting for our group to sit together and regroup on our fun day and make plans for the next. The dining table was perfect for putting a puzzle together, and the bar area worked great for supervising dinner preparation. Speaking of dinner preparation, we were thoroughly impressed with the stainless steel pots and pans and the stocked kitchen in general. We had a coffee maker for the mornings and a blender when the time was right in the evenings.
The house is in prime location for dolphin watching with the rooftop deck, the private deck off the master, and the screened in porch (the BEST place to sit and read a good book). The community center right down the road features a nice gym, pool, and playground (the cubs really enjoyed this). The island itself is so quiet; there is no traffic noise or dogs barking. The beach was very family friendly with polite passersby giving us advice on where to eat and fish and letting us pet their dogs. One can deduce that living in South Carolina is directly related to being friendly.
Harbor Island is conveniently located by Beaufort which is a magical little city that offers a vast array of activities. We had some bears do fishing trips while other bears in the group opted for carriage rides and dolphin tours. We also enjoyed the proximity to Savanah, GA which is another must when you are in the area.
Seaside Getaways was an outstanding property management company that responded immediately to all questions and comments. The house was completely tranquil and we all were sad to leave. This home is the best way to experience South Carolina and we highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to have a relaxing and memorable trip.

Location

From the south: Take I-95 North, take S.C. exit 8 (Hwy 278/Beaufort/Hilton Head). Turn onto Hwy 278, toward Hilton Head/Beaufort. Travel approximately 4 miles and turn left at the sign for Beaufort. (If you pass the Wal-Mart, you missed the turn). Stay on this road until it dead-ends at Hwy 170. Turn left onto Hwy 170 and continue for about 11miles, cross the Broad River Bridge, and turn right onto Hwy 802 (the next right turn after the bridge at the BP Gas Station). Take this road for a couple of miles until it comes to an end and turn right to stay on the same hwy. Stay on Hwy 802 (you'll cross over the bridge by Parris Island) until you come to a fairly major intersection with a CVS, a gas station, a Hardee's, and an auto parts store. Turn right at this intersection. You will still be on Hwy 802. (You'll know it's the right turn because you'll see signs for Fripp Island). At all times, follow the signs toward Fripp. You'll cross another bridge over to Lady's Island. After crossing the bridge, travel another mile or 2 and make a right hand turn onto Hwy 21. Sherwin Williams and a Publix will be at this intersection. Go approx 15 miles on Hwy 21. You'll go over one final drawbridge and then turn left onto Harbor Island. Once you pass through the security gates, (you will pick up your passes at Security Gate) follow the road out toward the beach. It will curve to the left just keep following it. Key West Attitude, 68 NHD, is .25 miles on your right (turn right at 64 NHD mailbox), we are beachfront to the left (number is on the right corner of the house).

From the north: Go I-95 South, take exit 33 (US-17 N) toward Charleston/Beaufort. Go approximately 8.5 miles and turn right onto US-21 S/Trask Pkwy. Follow US-21 S/Trask Pkwy for about 14 miles, then stay straight to go onto US-21 BR/Boundary St. Continue to follow US-21 BR, which becomes US-21. Continue another 13 miles and turn left onto Harbor Island. Follow directions to home above.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Ron and I moved our family here in 2004 from Atlanta, Georgia. We had visited for several years and then decided to make the move and settle our family in the low country. We have never looked back. We live on a tidal creek and our children love to swim during the summer, go crabbing off our dock, and get muddy at low tide. The history of Beaufort surrounds you. Beaufort is the second-oldest city in South Carolina and was founded in 1711. There is much to explore in this area.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
We chose to buy this home because the setting was perfect; the rooftop deck was alluring; the views were spectacular. The layout of our home is wonderful for families and our favorite space is the breakfast table where we watch dolphins playing in the ocean. We found Harbor Island to be quiet, secluded, off the beaten path and we like that kind of location for a family vacation. Once we started coming here more frequently, we then noticed all of the birds that pass through our island. We recently became an IBA (Important Bird Area) for the Audubon Society.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying in this home allows you to be extremely comfortable while enjoying time with family and friends. You can spread out into the living room, kithchen, screen porch, or rooftop deck. The beach is literally, just down a few steps!!! We have a grassy area for small children to play safely while parents may be busy inside the home. Harbor Island is small, so a fun way to travel is by golf cart. We own a golf cart available for your use during your stay ($200/week).
