LETS GO TO THE BEACH. From our front yard's sidewalk cross over the LAZY & QUIET street. Directly across the street follow the paved Beach Access Path. As seen in Picture #3 the dune you go over is only slightly elevated. In about 60 Seconds you're ON the Beach :-) Keep Reading why this is a great Beach House.

The best swimming is as the tide is coming in, High Tide & as the tide is going out. For more direct Ocean Waves, visit Hunting Island State Park, which by car is 1 mile away... Be sure to go climb up to the top of the only Light House in South Carolina that can be climbed & visit the Nature Center. Check out Harbor Islands moderate temperatures. http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/29920

You will hear stories about the Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting in the sand dunes- THEY'RE TRUE. Help us protect them til they're ready to return to the Ocean. Around Harbor Island you will see terns, pelicans, egrets, herons, osprey, seagulls, cranes, other birds flying & sleeping in the Rookeries.

Great Time at the Beach!!
Great Time at the Beach!!
My husband, son, brother, and sister-in-law and I recently spent a wonderful week in the Pink House. We were so pleased with it's floor plan, as well as it's location. Even though it's across the street from the beach, the walk way to the beach is directly in front of the house. It literally takes a minute to get to the beach. The house was equipped with everything that we needed. John had recently added the availability of a golf cart, which we did not rent initially. However, we wanted to explore the neighborhood and a golf cart made it so easy and so much fun. We contacted John a couple of days into our vacation and he arranged everything for us to be able to use the golf cart. If there is any draw back to Harbor Island, it is that is about 20 minutes from any significant shopping district, but we went there to relax and enjoy some local seafood; not to shop. Per John's recommendation, we visited Hunting Island State Park and went up in the lighthouse. What a view! I would highly recommend the same. Thanks, John and Linda, for renting your house to us. We had a great time. It was the first time for my brother to see the Atlantic Ocean and he enjoyed being able to chill out in a beautiful beach home. Thanks again! We hope to return.

Owner response: My wife and I are always pleased when our guest have a great time staying at our Beach House- your kind words are appreciated :-) We hope you will plan to come back soon to vacation in our "Pink House" located so close to the sea in the future. Sounds like you did lots of fun things During a return trip to Harbor Island, I suggest you shop in some of the local stores to the left of the gate - then continue back from the Island to Beaufort & stop often. We have found a variety of several shopping options. OH YES, Harbor Island is indeed a quite and unique place- the Golf Cart is a great option to see even more of the Island's Nature & yes the close by Hunting Island has another example of the Atlantic Ocean's beauty that is hard to explain until someone has been there. All the continued best to you and your family. Sincerely, John & Linda
What a great 3 nights

What a beautiful house you have. My little family of six had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. The walk on the beach without the crowds was very nice and peaceful. Riding every evening on the golf cart was a thrill especially for the grand kids. I enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch with a great view just listening to the oldies on the radio. We had plenty of room with our own private bath, that was a luxury. The study was peaceful and relaxing with a book from your library. I give this home a 5 star. Thanks to Ron and Greta for allowing us to rent such a wonderful place. Hope to return again in the near future. Thanks again, Tim Shirley

Owner response: Dear Tim Shirley and family: As owners of the house we would like to thank you for your positive and kind review of our house. My wife and I are always pleased when our guest had a great time - we are also pleased that you were satisfied with our management company. Our goal is to continue to offer a great Harbor Island Beach vacation destination. We hope you will return to our "Pink House" soon. Sincerely, Linda and John
Wonderful house in a beautiful location. The layout and features of the house were perfect for our multi-generational annual vacation. Ranging in age from 10 to 75, all ten of our family members had a great time. We really appreciated the attentiveness of the rental agency and owners. The kitchen is fully outfitted for all types of cooking including some extras such as the Keurig, the location is convenient to the beach even for our older family members, the beds were luxurious, and there was a nice collection of games and books in case we'd forgotten our own. We felt very much at home and enjoyed our stay. Our only "suggestion" would be to make a golf cart an option available to renters. Otherwise, a perfect week!

Spring break vacation
Spring break vacation
We loved our stay at the Pink House! It was perfect for two families vacationing together. The house accommodated all 8 comfortably. Everything was clean and overall very nice. The kitchen was newly painted and well equipted. The layout of the house was perfect and the 5 bedrooms 5 baths were great. It was so relaxing to have such nice views of the ocean from the great room. The house is well maintained and is very nicely decorated to reflect the area. The photos and description of the house and property are accurate. Harbor Island is a fun place to explore. The beach and nearby state park (Hunting Island) provided us with lots of recreaction. We enjoyed hiking, walking the beach, climbing up the light house, and kayaking. The owners were awesome to work with. They promptly responded to emails and phone calls and were accommodating in every way. Beaufort is a great town to explore. Nice shops and galleries to browse in rather than the touristy trinket shops. Our kids enjoyed the horse and carriage ride which gave a historical tour of the town. We would love to return to the area and would definitely recommend staying at The Pink House!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home ~ Highly Recommended`

My family rented this beautiful house for my son's graduation from the Marine Corp. It is ideally located with gorgeous views of the beach and neighborhood. Every corner of this home has been decorated with the guest's comfort in mind. The house lacks for nothing, and the layout is perfect. The home has all the amenities needed and more. The rooms are lovely and the balconies provide beautiful views. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. It provided such a comfortable environment for my Son's leave from Boot Camp. The owner is very responsive to any questions you may have. I would highly recommend this home.

We just rented this house for our son's boot-camp graduation. John was great to deal with when setting up the reservation and again when he called back and confirmed prior to our arrival. The house is huge and set up very nice for large groups(we had 7 adults and 3 kids) Although it was cold we enjoyed the screened porch and the balconies very much. The kitchen was fully stocked with every possible thing you would ever need. The upstairs Master Suite was a nice private area to relax and unwind. Thebeach is a very short walk across the street from the house. The whole area is very beautiful and I look forward to going back to explore.

Pink DREAM house
Pink DREAM house
Everything about this house was PERFECT! My family and I spent a week here and exceedingly enjoyed the bedroom divided floor plan where privacy is well maintained. Gorgeous views were enjoyed from all porches. The short walk across the street to the beach was a real bonus for my aging parent and easy supervision of my son and triplet nieces. We hope to rent this home again and again and hope it stays on the rental roster. If the owners are ever in the market to sell, please contact us first!!!! I LOVE MY PINK DREAM HOUSE!!!!!!!!
