Welcome to The Haven...with newly refreshed, upscale, interior spaces including all new baths February 2013! Featuring double master suites on the main floor, this large Pelican Point duplex home is a popular vacation choice because of its privacy, spaciousness, high quality furnishings, and stunning views. Shaped by wind and water, the southern end of Harbor Island is constantly changing vista of sea and sand, marsh and creek, sky and light. Here, the tidal waters of Johnson’s Creek flow to the Atlantic to create this very private, quiet, natural, area of the Island that is perfect for kayaking, shrimping and fishing, digging for clams, gathering muscles, and, of course, crabbing. A beautiful tidal marsh lies between the home and the ocean and is a favorite fishing ground for dolphin, herons, egrets, and other shore birds. A minute’s walk over a very short boardwalk adjacent to the home takes you to a narrow strip of shoreline abutting the marsh overlooking Hunting Island, Johnson’s Creek, and beyond to the beautiful Atlantic.

This property is exceptionally well furnished and appointed and comes complete with books and games to make your coastal retreat complete. A new (2011) high-end HVAC system provides central air and heat with humidifier and air cleaner to enhance your comfort. Recent updates include completely remodeled baths, fresh painting in all rooms, new area rugs, new high end living area furniture, new accessories, and new mattresses and bedspreads.

The Haven conveniently offers two master bedroom suites on the main floor, and two additional bedrooms on the second floor, sleeping a total of eight with a queen in each of the four bedrooms. There is also an LL Bean portable Easy Cot in the downstairs guest bedroom, to expand sleeping options. The cot is 17' high x 30' wide x 79' long and can accommodate up to 330 pounds.

On the main floor, the ocean side master is located at the rear of the home with gorgeous views over the ocean marsh to the Atlantic, and opens into the ocean view screened porch off of the living area. This master bedroom features a completely renovated new private bath with an oversized walk-in shower. The second master bedroom is at the front of the home with views of another beautiful tidal marsh. The remodeled bath for the second master offers a new tub/shower combination. A strategically placed pocket door allows you to close off this bath and bedroom to form a master suite, or if you prefer you can leave the pocket door open allowing general access to that bath.

The second floor offers a full guest bath, and two large bedrooms. Each of the upstairs bedrooms provides a beautiful view. The rear bedroom directly faces the ocean and the ocean marsh. A chaise lounge nestled beneath the large windows beckons you to stretch out for hours with your favorite beach book. The second upstairs bedroom is oriented toward the ever changing tidal marsh at the front of the home, and features a deep, comfy arm chair as well as a cable television and VCR player. The all new second floor guest bath offers a tub/shower combination.

The spacious living area is complete with a new 42” LCD flat screed TV, a sound system with IPod docking station, and a working fireplace. A high speed wireless Internet connection and free long distance calling to US and Canada are included with your rental! In the dining area, a hand woven Persian rug below and chandelier above set off the dining table where you can comfortably seat eight. The dining area is open to the family kitchen which, in addition to the standard kitchen appliances and equipment, also boasts a new stainless steel GE French door refrigerator, chrome-coated storage shelves, and practical but fun items like a waffle maker and a slow cooker, as well as a unique and massive old timey butcher block. Tableware--both patterned and white, along with cloth napkins and coordinating bake/serve dishes, will accentuate the great meals you'll enjoy cooking in this kitchen. Kitchenware includes a nice big pot for boiling or steaming and a dozen Lowcountry cookbooks for inspiration.

As the second to last home in Pelican Point, on the southern end of Harbor Island, this location is very much a “get away from it all” spot providing a romantic setting or a relaxing family atmosphere where you can reconnect with the kids. You could spend hours relaxing in the swing on the ocean oriented screened porch, admiring the vista---but every room offers a beautiful low country view! Panoramic ocean-oriented views can be enjoyed from the living area, dining area, screened porch, rear main floor master, and rear upstairs guest bedroom while the other two bedrooms enjoy views of an expansive tidal marsh at the front of the home. The front porch also overlooks that marsh and is a great spot for relaxing on the swing or in one of the rocking chairs, to watch the changing marsh scene with its abundant birdlife, or catch the sun going down for the day.

For your enjoyment and comfort, The Haven also provides a Char-broil propane gas grill and an outdoor hot/cold shower. Your reservations include use of our “crab gear”: crab lines and weights, dip net, tongs (crabs are indeed crabby, and love to pinch!) and a sturdy bucket to carry home your catch. And your rental includes full access to the Harbor Island Beach & Racquet Club where you will find an Olympic sized pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River, a kiddie wading pool, a sand volleyball court, tennis court, small sundries shop, fitness center and more.

Owner may consider one small pet (dog only) with payment of a $90 non-refundable pet fee. This property offers you a unique vacation experience, we will be happy to help with your plans for this special place. Please email for availability. Thank you!

                      Location

                      Harbor Island is a great place for nature watching. Dolphin are frequently seen off our shores, egrets and herons nest in our rookeries and alligators prowl the impounded lagoons. The entire island is an Audubon Designated Important Bird Area: more than 170 different kinds of birds either live here or migrate through our island every year! Harbor Island is a gated beach community with almost three miles of natural beaches. You will have access to the Beach and Racquet Club's tennis courts, fitness center, and swimming pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River. There is also a kiddie pool and a playground for the children. You may never want to leave the island, but if you'd like to see the sights, just 14 miles away is beautiful, historic Beaufort. Located on the Intracoastal Waterway, Beaufort offers a wide variety of restaurants, art galleries and shops, historic tours and horse drawn carriage rides through streets lined with antebellum homes and graceful live oaks. The waterfront park downtown is a must-see. Harbor Island is ideally situated for day trips: a little over an hour from Savannah and Savannah International Airport, one hour from Hilton Head Island and Hilton Head Airport, and approximately two hours from historic Charleston.
