Harbor Island condo description

RELAX and unwind in this comfortable and welcoming condo. The condo is located in the private and gated Harbor Island community, named a Top 10 Secret Beach by Southern Living Magazine. Enjoy your stay lolling either by the pool or on the beautiful and practically deserted beach.

Close to historic Beaufort (the country's Happiest Small Town, according to a 2013 Coastal Living Magazine poll) and it's unique shops, excellent restaurants and wonderful sights, there are plenty of things to do and see. If you don't want to go into town, you can spend your time on island strolling on the beach, catching hermit crabs, finding sand dollars, relaxing with a good book on the lanai, working out in the Clubhouse gym, swimming in one of three pools, or lazing on the couch and watching cable TV.

Harbor Island is a small gated community located near Hunting Island State Park and Fripp Island. The island is surrounded by the ocean and Saint Helena Sound. The area has great recreation with several beautiful golf courses nearby and plentiful fishing, crabbing, and shrimping.
