About the owner: I am active navy, so my sister and her 3 children live in my house on Harbor Island during the school year. This is our personal home and we love the peace and tranquility that Harbor Island has to offer. It is a great place to relax and make wonderful memories with family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island: We have lived in Beaufort for 10 years. We chose Harbor as our permanent home because it is still 'undiscovered' and had a certain charm. We fell in love with the simple things Harbor has to offer. Once on the Island you have access to the amenities. The pristine beach, beautiful marshes, awesome pools, tennis courts, volleyball, fitness center. My teenage nephew has discovered the joys of fishing. It is hassle free, you can just go out to the beach, or under the bridge, or pier fish at Hunting Island. Charters are available. (Next he wants to try to fish from a kayak!) I love to relax at the ocean and pools. We all enjoy biking, hiking and golfing (plenty of courses within 30 minute drive). Hunting State Park is a mile down the road and is a must see when visiting. The town of Beaufort is so charming with its old homes, shops and restaurants. Parris Island is about 20 minutes away. I have many families stay for the son/daughter's Marine graduation..I love that I am somehow a part of those family reunions!
The Unique Benefits at this House: You will enjoy the ever changing tides, wild life and peacefulness of the area. You can just relax, or take advantage of the amenities of the Island. Group volleyball games are a blast, (I love volleyball). The pool, playground area is great for families with smaller children. You are not partitioned off from everyone..the baby pool is next to the playground and larger pool. Pack your cooler and spend the day! I have some bikes, beach chairs, beach toys etc..for you to use when renting from me. I hope you choose to stay with us..it truly is a vacation you will always remember.
