Property description

WELCOME to PARADISE. Our "Pink House" By Th Sea located on the corner @ #1 Windjammer LN definitely is a fantastic Lodging Option for your next Vacation. Only 60 SECs To the beach: Walk over our front yard sidewalk THEN Cross th LAZY & QUIET street THEN proceed on Access Path #5 thats across the street from our house. Soon you're at the Beach where you can SWIM, SUN, WALK, JOG & RIDE A BIKE.

Nearby Ocean Views you see from inside, on adjoining screened porch, or on one of several outside decks are AWESOME. You will often hear Ocean Waves softly crash to the beach and the Sweet Harbor Island winds blow! Add the Palmetto Palms, Sega Palms, Sea Oats, Tropical Grasses, Flowers and exciting Wildlife - you will smile often:-)

Our Harbor Island "PINK HOUSE" (a part of the Sea Islands SC to FLA) is a Great Option for Vacations. Checkout 20 Renter Reviews for our House (All th highest score- 5 Stars): 2 rec'd 2015, 11 rec'd 2014, 7 rec'd 2013/2012. We are pleased to have received these Excellent Reviews.

There are lots of places close by selling Fresh Seafood (take home to cook:-) Then take time to checkout the South Carolina Low Country shopping, sight seeing, History, Golf and Dine Out options.

INCLUDED WHEN YOU RENT just a short walk (Golf Cart Available at reasonable fee) is the SWIM and RACQUET CLUB. Amenities are: A beautiful Olympic Size Pool. Also a small Retail Store offering some Island Gifts, Snacks and a few Necessity Groceries. There's volleyball, basketball, a childrens pool, swing set, playground, fitness Room, Weight Room, Golf Chipping Yard and Tennis. ALSO fun at our Community Center (check to see if started when you arrive): EVERY MONDAY - Our Turtle Patrol holds a presentation. ALSO EVERY THURSDAY - a wild life presentation.

Back at our "Pink House" (Outiside re-painted as of March 2015). Lets begin with the layout of the Main Floor inside our clean and well furnished house: The Great Room includes: a very large beautiful Wood dining table with 10 matching chairs, the fully equipped open Kitchen (has 4 Wood counter bar stools that match the table), comfy lounging Chairs and Couch and TV. Get ready to relax even more: open the sliding door in the great room- step onto a spacious screened porch with Table and Chairs ( take the time to kick back, relax and take in the beautiful Ocean view! ) Satellite TV, Free WI-FI and Free Long Distance are included.

More about our 5 BRs- all which have a Queen Size Bed: The main floor includes 4 of the 5 Bedrooms (#s 2-5) and 4 Bath Rooms and Office with Desk/chairs. Proceed thru office to the Upstairs (Master Bedroom Suite #1) which covers the entire upstairs: Details: theres a private front deck with a breath taking Ocean View, Huge Bath Room, walk in closet AND rear sitting area and private rear Deck which showcases Harbor Islands Marsh Land or nearby Harbor River. All 5 Bedrooms include a Closet.

THE UPSTAIRS MASTER SUITE, which includes BR #1, has especially great views. In the morning from the front deck (consider a cup of coffee) watch the Sunrise peeping slowly over the Ocean. It's often amazing. THEN the rear sitting area or back deck is great to gaze out over the Islands Marsh. The South Carolina Low Country often features Awesome Colorful Sunsets.

The maximum parking allowed at our house is 5 cars. The paved Cement Driveway can park 3-4 cars. To park additional cars or to make getting cars in and out easier, park some of your cars in the VERY LARGE completely paved cement garage located under the house that holds 3 cars AND which has LOTS OF additional space. There are 2 Automatic Opening Car Doors to get into the Completely Enclosed Garage under the house. The Garage includes an outdoor shower and is a safe place to keep your bikes and beach stuff. VERY IMPORTANT the heavy duty lattice (built to cover from the ceiling to the ground) lets in light, but keeps out animals THEREFORE- the Side Door and 2 Garage Doors MUST BE CLOSED each night so hungry Racoons are kept out)

FOR EVEN MORE FUN- Hunting Island, our South Carolina State Park, is only a short drive by car: Aprox 1 1/2 mile away. A small fee per car ( however we will pay for 1 of your car's when you use our personal Pass:-) Be sure to go up to the top of the only Light House in South Carolina that can be climbed. Also visit the Nature Center and hike the trails. Then go out to its wonderful beach: They also have a really great fishing pier ( or fish on our beach ) SC Fishing license is needed when you fish. Of importance- Harbor Island, which has mild Waves, is part of the Sea Islands. Hunting Island adds direct waves.

NATURE on Harbor Island has been discussed in many Magazines. You will see horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, watch dolphins play, see beautiful birds fly around and land on the beach to play/eat. Enjoy the Shrimp Boats as they slowly pass. Our Island protects Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting in the sand dunes from Mid May until the end of October. We have guidelines to help protect them til they are ready to return to the Ocean. Around Harbor Island you will see terns, pelicans, egrets, herons, osprey, seagulls, cranes, other birds flying and sleeping in the Rookeries. Nature on the island also includes rabbits, fox, raccoons, alligators, snapping turtles, deer and other wildlife.

IMPORTANT POTENTIAL RENTER - I want to only give you accurate information.

Please call me, John, the owner to get an accurate QUOTED RATE.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Husband & Wife, John Ellis & Linda, live in Alexandria, VA. After traveling to many beautiful beaches, we fell in love with Harbor Islands beauty and tranquility and our Pink House, which we purchased June 2012.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
This beach house made us feel at home instantly. The Ocean is SO CLOSE. The house has spacious rooms. The many decks showcase the beauty of the Ocean and the distant River & Marshes. Our Island Community includes 24 Hour Gated Security in & out. This rental house is a great location and value for your vacation dollars.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We suggest you Scroll this map to see that we actually are OH SO close to the Ocean seen from our Porch & Decks. Harbor Island is a fantastic location for all beach and nature lovers! Our guest have also enjoyed the wild life which includes: many birds (Harbor Island has been named an IBA or Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society) The pace of life is very laid back and peaceful. The low country has a story we hope you will learn about when you stay at our wonderful Beach House. Enjoy the Ocean & Wildlife - then go Shop & Eat Out & Enjoy the available sports activities the area offers! Our Pink House will be waiting :-)
