Harbor Island house description

Our beautiful home is in a wooded area but just minutes from the beach. It is a custom built house and all the furnishings are stylish and new. The 5 bedrooms have a cottage feel and when the large living room windows are open, the breezes waft through with the smells of the lowcountry marsh to make you feel as if you are in 'The Prince of Tides'. We are located in the shaded part of the island with lots of privacy and palmetto trees. The large screened-in porch has a 6 person table, rocking chairs, and wonderful hammock all with a lagoon view.

Each day is a choice of riding bikes around the island, sea-shelling on the large quiet beach, swimming in the pool, tennis, volleyball, jogging. Maybe just take a book and lounge in the hammock for the whole afternoon. Or if you want to take a day to shop, Beaufort has little boutiques and beach shops, casual or upscale restaurants all with delicious FRESH seafood. The Hilton Head outlets in Blufton are 40-45 min. away. Hunting Island State Park is next door with its bird watching,big waves, lighthouse and native SC ecosystem.

Harbor Island is a gated island community with 24 hour security. If you want boardwalks, traffic and overpriced tourist attractions, then this is not the place to spend your vacation. However, if you want a relaxing, natural, away-from-it-all island then you have found the perfect place to share with your friends and family.
