Harbor Island villa description

Welcome to Harbor Island, SC, and thank you for checking our website for information on our rental home.
Harbor Island is a private barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean 15 miles east of Beaufort, SC. Our gated community is located on Saint Helena Sound and it features a 2.5 mile sandy beach, and 24/7 security.
Harbor Island is a wonderful place to observe nature. Native and migrating birds can be found on our island depending on the season. We have an active, volunteer staffed, loggerhead turtle protection program. These volunteers assist in the survival of the species by monitoring activities as the turtles return to their birthplace in the Spring to lay their eggs. Throughout the summer and early fall, baby turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean. And, if you look slightly offshore, sometimes you’ll see dolphins playing in the shallow waters of our beaches.

Harbor Island has lots of outdoor activities, i.e. fishing, crabbing, ‘shrimping’ or boating. For those who prefer freshwater activities, the BRC (Beach & Racquet Club) offers a large and a kiddy pool, a souvenir and snack shop, and a beach volleyball area. In addition, we have tennis, basketball and shuffleboard courts. There’s also a horseshoe pit in the fenced in community area, and, although it’s fenced, no dogs are allowed.

For those seeking a more structured workout, our fitness center at the BRC features a weight room, two treadmills, and two stationary bicycles. Don’t forget the bike rentals. Upon your arrival to our island, check with the BRC for bike rentals and questions about any of the activities listed above.

Our condo is on the 3rd floor (top floor) and it's accessible by elevator. You'll find our one bedroom home uniquely positioned to offer you wonderful sunrises and spectacular sunsets. The Sunset Lounge, located just outside our front door, features a 3rd floor outdoor living/viewing area that no other unit in our building has.

The sole bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and full bath. Another half bath is just steps down the hall. Additional sleeping accommodations are on the sleeper sofa in the den. Maximum occupancy is 3 people.

You'll love the comfortable feel of our home. Snuggle up with a book in the corner chaise or spend an afternoon at one of three nearby pools or our not-so-crowded beach.

Smoking is not allowed in the home. But, feel free to enjoy your tobacco products on the screened porch or at the Sunset Lounge.

Enjoy your stay and please come back again.

                    Nice relaxing getaway before we receive our new bundle of joy. It was a little cold during our stay but the accommodations were great so it still turned out to be a wonderful vacation. We had a few good days on the beach and also got to visit our favorite beach on the eastern seaboard... hunting island which is right next door. A short mile by kayaks.

                    Clean, quiet, and relaxing! We never wanted to leave. The owners of the unit are easy to talk to and can answer any questions you may have. Fishing is great on the north end of the island just watch out for the alligator. I will be back as soon as my work permits. Many thanks again.

                    Owner response: Thank you, TJ, for your kind words. Glad y'all had a good time. And, we do hope you'll be back. Regarding the fishing on the north end, you must tell us your secrets for success! Poor Bill has never caught a fish there. I do need to add one correction. Our home is not 'pet friendly' as indicated in the review.

                    This condo was everything we expected. It was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and had a pleasant view out to the ocean. The owner was easy to work with and rental details were handled smoothly and efficiently. We used the condo as a jumping off spot for day trips to Beaufort, Charleston, Savannah and the outlet malls in Bluffton. We relaxed on the beach and rode our bikes around the subdivision as well as along the beach. The area was amazingly quiet during our stay with only a handful of people at the beach. Be prepared and buy groceries and supplies before you head out to Harbor Island. There was only one convenience store just past the entrance to Harbor Island but we did not discover this until our second last day. Gay's seafood and fiish market is a good spot to buy shrimp etc. and the Lowcountry Market is a definite stop if you like pie. Try the tomato pie...delicious! We had delicious ribs and shrimp on the patio at Q on Bay in Beaufort where we enjoyed watching kids fly kites along the waterfront. Wether you want to relax at the beach or day trip around the area, you will find this condo meets your needs...and the sunsets are amazing!

                    Owner response: Thank you, Beth and Pat, for your kind comments. We greatly appreciate your feedback and will get a tea kettle for the kitchen. I have just the one in mind. Y'all be sure to come again!

                    Phenomenal week at this Harbor Island getaway! If you are looking for peace and serenity, this is the place. Beautiful, quiet beaches, pools, and nice grounds on this nature lover's paradise. Awesome variety of beautiful birds and other wildlife on the island. This unit is the most well equipped that we have ever stayed in. We have stayed in 5 or 6 through the years. Very clean, roomy, well-decorated and an outstanding kitchen with great essentials. The bath and a half was nice. Huge walk-in shower. My wife's favorite place was the large screened in porch. I really liked the front porch in the even for the beautiful sunsets. We hope to make this Harbor Island getaway a routine spring trip each year! My first time to South Carolina and I can't wait to go back! Did I mention FRESH SEAFOOD every night! LOVED IT! GREAT FOLKS TO RENT FROM AS WELL!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: We are both retired and live in upstate SC.

                  Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
                  Our home is exactly what you want it to be: comfortable, quiet, romantic, the list is yours to choose from. It's close to great beaches and golf courses and just in between Charleston and Savannah. Harbor is truly a community for people who love the beach. Although there are no golf courses on our island, you'll find plenty to do. We have bike rentals, tennis courts, a gym, three pools, sunrises, sunsets, and peace and quiet. Design your own vacation. But, make sure you come back for another visit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  We love Harbor's beach and it changes from season to season. In spite of the changes, one thing will remain. There's always a large sandbar that goes off into the east that will allow you to walk so far off shore that you can look back and see the Hunting Island lighthouse. If you, like us, are golfers, you've got the courses at Fripp Island that are just 10 minutes away. We like the public course at Parris Island. It's a real treat to visit the island for golf as well as to visit the Marine Corp Museum.
