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.

                          About the owner: You won't find any camels on Harbor Island, but there are lots of other things to keep you entertained!

                          Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
                          Harbor Island is like no other place I've ever been to. It's quiet, beautiful, and oh so relaxing.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The condo is located on the second floor, but there is an elevator available. Since it is an end unit, you'll enjoy plenty of sunlight and ocean breezes throughout the rooms. Washers and dryers are available on each floor. The beach is a 5 minute walk and one pool is a 3 minute walk from the condo.
