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. 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. Our '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. Maximum occupancy is 2 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 our home. But, feel free to enjoy your tobacco products on the screened porch or at our Sunset Lounge.

Enjoy your stay and please come back again.

                  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.
