My family had a wonderful time at Harbor Island. The weather kept us from enjoying the beach as much as we had hoped, but the condo was stocked with plenty of movies and board games. This was a perfect place for my family of three. The condo had everything we needed and we enjoyed every minute of this trip. The owner was very helpful in answering my questions and making great suggestions on places to eat. We loved our visit to Hunting Island and plan to make this trip again.

**Amended Review** A LATE SUMMER GETAWAY!!
The intentions of my first review are being misjudged. So I’m here in an attempt to set the record straight. First, let me say that I did very much enjoy my visit and found this condo very nice and very accommodating. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, everything works, and it’s a very short walk to the beach. The patio goes right to the boardwalk to the beach! And if you feel like lying around the condo for a while, there are plenty of good books to read! The owner was very, very easy to work with. She made an exception and let me bring my small dog, after I provided her with certain criteria from the dog’s vet. She did me a big favor by doing this! My comment regarding the cleanliness of the condo was my way of letting the rental company, VRBO, know that they may have a problem with their cleaning service, since I kept getting requests for a review from them. It was not meant to be a reflection of the owner’s concern for their renters. I should have sent the owner a private message, but not having used VRBO before, I did not know how the process worked. Live and Learn. So please don’t hesitate to book this condo, you won’t regret it!!!!

This unit is furnished with a very comfortable bed! The den furniture is not very comfortable and could be replaced. But being a pet friendly unit it is understandable to not invest in something new. The throw rugs were dirty so I had to wash them, as well as damp mopping the floors. Whoever cleans this unit needs to pay more attention to the floors. It is starting to need some TLC, such as paint and under the sink needs cleaning out. I also felt the need to scrub some of the baking dishes before using them. I certainly left it cleaner than what it was when I arrived. The unit has all you need except I had a need for some large bowls in the kitchen and a blender which I did not see there. Minor things. The owner was very courteous and easy to work with and responded to all my emails in a timely manner. My comments are not intended to hurt, but to suggest a few minor improvements. I would stay there again and would recommend it to someone needing a place with a small dog. Thank you!!!

Owner response: The furniture in our den is less than one year old and we love it! I'm sorry you found it uncomfortable but I am glad you at least liked the bed. We also have five large bowls in the kitchen in the cabinet above the stove - I am sorry you could not find them. As for the cleanliness of the place, we have NEVER had a response like this. In fact, in our guest book, people often comment that they like our place because it is so much cleaner than others they have stayed in. I did pass your review on to our cleaning company and they are looking into it. I stopped by the condo yesterday as we had a renter right after you and another coming in over the weekend and this was my first chance to go in. It was spotless. Hopefully, the cleaning company will be able to talk to the person who cleaned before you stayed and this shouldn't happen again. In the case that it does, if I am notified at the start, someone can come in and clean for you. We work really hard to provide a clean, comfortable condo for all renters and will continue to do so.

We have rented at Harbor Island before, but the bath and a half in this condo is great!! The condo is as the pictures show, and more. All the listed amenities were there, and as Lillian had asked "if you use something up just replace for the next guest" we did, as we could tell others had as well. This was a short notice renting, but Lillian was great to work with, ans was very helpful. The walk to the beach is actually a little farther than it says or looks, but that is with ANY condo within Harbor, and not that bad as all but the last 1/4 of it is over a wooden boardwalk. I mention this only so that those with little children, and or disabled realize that none of the condo's are "step out your door ocean front!!" We visited Charleston, and Beaufort on the windiest of days, seen the Carnival Cruise ship " Fantasy" boarding in Charleston Harbor, and a walk around Beaufort is not to be missed, look up the house they call the "Castle", it takes up a whole city block! Beach time was great, walking, shelling, even helping 5 stranded horse shoe crabs back to sea. The beach/water to the left of your board walk is actually the Sound and to the right is ocean, and if you walk around the "point" you can see Hunting Island S.P. (also not be missed, and climb the light house!) Friday was my wife's B/D so we decided on eating at Johnson Creek Tavern not even a 1/4 of a mile from the Condo. GO THERE!! There are hundreds and hundreds of dollar bills folks have signed and put on walls, ceiling, etc.Gary Sinese, "Bubba", and Tom Hanks all have eaten there and put dollars up from when "Forest Gump" was filmed on Hunting Island and the area.I know I may sound like a commercial but we have researched this area and love it! when we got returned we went over to the bird sanctuary, and seen not 1 but 3 of the resident Alligators. what a week!! We went for relaxation and to celebrate a B/D, but thanks to Lillian, it was so so much more. !! If there is a downside to the condo, and it would be minor, I would only have to say that it could use a fresh coat of paint on walls and ceilings., But as far as being clean and well maintained, we were happy, it felt as tho we were walking into our own home, meeting our own standards We know that the focus here is to rent rent rent, but if we keep on singing praises, it will always be full and we won't be able to get in ourselves!!! which we definitely, do plan to return to this Condo as much as time allows us to.....

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I am a school teacher at a local high school and my husband is a soccer instructor. We met in Beijing, China five years ago and were married two years later. We moved back to the States (and lived at Harbor) until our one year old started walking. We love this area and are happy to own a condo here!
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
I grew up in Beaufort and have always loved Harbor. When this condo came available, I couldn't resist! My husband and I lived in the condo until our daughter was almost one years old. This condo is a very special place for us and we are happy to be able to share it.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are so many beautiful walks and bike rides to take here. It's quiet, peaceful and kid friendly. Also, the people who rent here are kind and you often see them return year after year. Many of our friends here are renters at Harbor during various times of year! It's just great.
