Property description

GREAT RATES FOR THIS TWO BEDROOM UNIT! All Holiday rates are a little higher.

On private, 1400 acre Harbor Island, the living slows way down. E-211 at Cedar Reef Villas has a fabulous view of St. Helena's Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. So sit on the deck and relax a while; let your artistic spirit be rejuvenated.

Or, doesn't a long walk along a white pristine beach sound great? Go down the few steps off our deck, make your way across the adjacent boardwalk, over the natural lowland habitat, and at certain times of the year - you will practically have the beach to yourself. This is a photographer's or artist's paradise. Nature lovers will not be disappointed!

The kitchen is equipped for the gourmet chef-wannabe in your family. Be sure to stop at Publix on your way out of Beaufort. It is on the left after you cross Lady's Island bridge over the intracoastal waterway after you go through downtown Beaufort on Route 21. Or, stop at Gay's Seafood on the right before you cross the Harbor River Bridge across from the famous (featured in Coastal Living) Shrimp Shack.

A five minute walk takes you to the community pool at the other end of D building. Another five-minute walk takes you to the exercise center in the lower level of the Beach Cabana Club. There is a large kidney-shaped pool, clay tennis courts, a putting green, a community center with a kitchen and tables to seat over 60 people that can be rented for weddings and family reunions.


Harbor Island is part of the 350,000-acre ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve (ACE Basin NERR), created and managed by the Marine Resources Division of South Carolina. The private island sits on the edge of the biologically rich Saint Helena's Sound.

The ACE Basin Refuge lies along the Atlantic Flyway - the bird highway in the sky.' Numerous waterfowl, shore birds, neo-tropical songbirds and birds of prey migrate from their nesting grounds to wintering areas throughout eastern North America via Harbor Island.

The painted bunting, egrets and herons are in abundance here. Our community supports an Osprey nest. Many endangered species such as the peregrine falcon, Canby's dropwort, chaffseed, hawksbill turtle, leatherback turtle, red-cockaded woodpecker, shortnose sturgeon, West Indian manatee, and wood stork live in the ACE Basin. Six, federally-threatened species (i.e. bald eagle, Eastern indigo snake, green turtle, American alligator, loggerhead turtle, and piping plover) have also been observed in the area.

The ocean is teeming with wildlife - American oysters, blue crabs, fiddler crabs, grass shrimps, hard clams, white shrimps, living sand dollars, horseshoe crabs, and porpoise. (This information was extracted from the website for the National Estuarine Research Reserve.)

At certain times of the year, you will share the ocean water with glowing green phosphorescent plankton or loggerhead sea turtles. (Don't forget to Help Save Our Turtles - lights off on the beach at night between May 1 and September 1) A sighting of a leatherback turtle, the largest living turtle species, occurred last year on Hunting Island, the next island over.

If you are interested in fishing - the 1120-foot, former Paradise Pier is now part of Hunting Island State Park, the last island boundary in the ACE Basin chain. Fishermen have tried their luck and caught Atlantic croaker, bay anchovy, black drum, largemouth bass, red drum, shortnose sturgeon, Southern flounder, spot, spotted seatrout, striped bass, and striped mullet.

Speaking of Hunting Island, we would be remiss if we did not mention the historic Hunting Island lighthouse that was in operation until 1933. Originally constructed in 1859 and rebuilt in 1875 after the Civil War, 167 steps and 50 cents will take you to the top for a fabulous view. It is only two miles away.

Time to go out on the town? Beaufort provides a delightful backdrop, hosting a thriving artists community and is only 14 miles away! A hour or so drive will take you to Savannah or Charleston, beautiful southern cities that make great day trips.


We know you will enjoy your stay on Harbor Island. Call Renee for more information or check our reservation calendar and send us an e-mail. We work really hard at keeping our rental calendar current.

Note: A gate pass for guests is a required purchase by our condominium association. See our website for current fees. South Carolina Hotel taxes & handling fees of 11% do apply, and there is a required $75 cleaning fee (2 BR).
