Harbor Island house description


Casa del Mar, our elegant yet comfortable home with private pool, is a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. It provides a tranquil escape and is ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. It is located in a quiet neighborhood on a large lot with beautiful landscaping. The rooms are bright and spacious and many have magnificent views of the ocean, sound or marsh.

There are warm heart pine floors throughout, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a huge master suite and luxury bath. The first level has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and great room and one bedroom. There is also a private bath on this level which accesses the pool.

The elevated private pool and large deck can be accessed from all of these rooms and there is lots of room and privacy for everyone. The kitchen has stainless steel upgraded appliances, granite counters and beautiful cabinetry. There is a dining room adjacent to the kitchen that can accommodate eight people comfortably. The dining room and living room lead to a covered porch with ocean views.

This level also features a bedroom that sleeps 2 and overlooks the pool. There is also a queen-size pull-out sofa in the living room.

Casa del Mar has surround sound in every room and on the pool deck.

The living room has a 50 inch flat-screen TV and DVD player. The full-size washer and dryer are located on the upper level and a freezer is on the garage level.

The second level features the master suite, plus one additional bedroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, walk-in closet, 50 inch flat-screen TV with DVD player, and luxury bath with whirlpool tub, his/her vanities and separate shower enclosure. There is a covered porch off the master suite.

The third bedroom has its own private bath and a covered porch, and sleeps four with a double bed and one set of twin bunk beds. It faces West and the sunsets are to die for.

Harbor Island is ideal for watching the dolphins and shrimp boats, walking, biking, crabbing or just lazing around.

There is a pool and racquet club and tennis courts within a five-minute walk from the house. The beach is 2.5 miles of white sand and the ocean is calm. Casa del Mar also comes with use of a private golf cart for exploring the island.

              Harbor Island is 14 miles from Beaufort, SC. It is also a 45 minute drive to Hilton Head and one hour to Savannah. Charlston is an hour and a half away. We have 2.5 miles of a white sand beach here at Harbor and the seas are gentle. Sit and sun and on the beach and watch the shrimp boats and dophins pass by. The kids will love it. Free access to beach and racquet club, free use of golf cart


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My husband and I currently live in the busy Washington, DC metro area. Actually in Alexandria, Virginia. We hunted for years for a second home and could never find anything that quite fit. We were invited by friends to Harbor Island, SC and from the first time my husband and I stepped foot on the island, we fell in love with it. We were amazed by the 2.5 of silver sand beach, which is never crowded; the beautiful palm trees and vegetation and the myriad of colorful homes throughout the island. It reminded us of Barbados. We knew that one day we wood purchase a home here. Our family, both the young and young at heart love the calm ocean, the beach and watching the shrimp boats and dolphins. We hope that one day you will visit and see for yourself.

              Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
              We chose Harbor Island because of the beach, the tranquility of the area and also because if its location. It is situated between Charleston, SC and Savannah Georgia two of the most historic cities in the South. Notwithstanding that Beaufort, SC has many colorful and historic sites.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy the peace and quiet of the area; the low country food and the weather. There is always an ocean breeze at our home and we are never hot and uncomfortable. We also enjoy the many varieties of birds which choose to nest in the area, including egrets, herons and pelicans. There are also numerous smaller birds who visit. Namely, humming birds, chickadees, cardinals and buntings.
