Harbor Island house description

#5 Scallop Court on Harbor Island. Our beautiful, light yellow beach house is located on peaceful, secluded Harbor Island. Three and a half miles of pristine, white sand beach. Peaceful, undeveloped, no through traffic in a gated community with great family atmosphere. The Beach and Racquet Club has an adult pool, baby pool (18' deep), playground, small exercise room, beach volleyball court, tennis, and basketball courts. There is absolutely NO COMMERCIALISM HERE ON HARBOR! If you don't like quiet, quaint places with interesting wildlife and down to earth people - this is not the place for you.

Views of the ocean and St. Helena Sound from both decks, kitchen and master bedroom. Our home has an open plan living/dining room and kitchen, decks and rocking chairs on two floors, open, airy and bright! Master Bedroom with en-suite bath, second Queen-size room, and third room with bunkbeds for four. Perfect for two families vacationing together or one family that wants to spread out. We have a ping pong table for your entertainment, and a wagon to bring all of your gear to the beach. The house is 200 yards from the beach - under a two minute walk! And YES WE DO HAVE AN OCEAN VIEW.

House is very clean and is constantly updated. Sparkling wood floors were installed two years ago, and still look brand new. We have 10 mg Wi-Fi home network - catch up with work e-mail (if you can bear it!!) from the deck overlooking the ocean. Use our golf cart to cruise the island like a local. THIS IS MANAGED DIRECTLY BY THE US....THE OWNERS!! THESE ARE PICTURES WE HAVE TAKEN OF OUR HOME AND THE ISLAND. THEY ARE THE ACTUAL VIEWS OF THE OCEAN FROM THE HOUSE, AND THEY ARE THE BEDROOMS, KITCHEN, LIVING AND DINING ROOMS. We are nice, normal people, and we want to rent out our home to people who will enjoy it, but not abuse it or the island. Once we send the lease via email, you have seven days to return it to us with 50% of the total rent due (as the deposit). The remaining 50% is due 60 days prior to your arrival. You can cancel anytime (prior to your 60 day arrival date written in the lease) for a full refund. Thanks! jill@jillhowson.com or 202 413 5548

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Hi! Our names are Jill and Giles. We have owned our home on Harbor Island since 2005. We find that our life can really become hectic, but when we get to Beaufort we truly relax. The people are wonderfully nice, and the pace of life is fabulous. We always miss our lovely home the minute we leave it!

                  Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
                  We chose to buy a house on Harbor Island because it was one of the few places we have been on the east coast that isn't commercially developed. The sense of being away from it all definitely hits us whenever we arrive. We enjoy having cocktails on our porch while sitting on the rocking chairs and chatting with our lovely neighbors.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the miles of beach and the amazing wildlife. The spring is a special time to watch birds in full plumage, and the summer always brings back the turtles. My mom and our great friend from England watched hatchlings head for the sea one August morning, and they found it to be an incredibly moving experience. We also love the fall and winter for the warmth and sunshine. Our children adore riding the golf cart to the beach club to play on the swing set or to swim in the pools. We love to play tennis too, so we always bring our rackets! You can also find us in Beaufort taking our friends on the horse drawn carriage tours of historic Beaufort, or dining at the great restaurants there. Our favorites places to go are Saltus River Grill, Plums, and The Beaufort Inn. When we want to go for a very casual meal with our children, we love to swing by the JCT which is very close to Harbor Island as is the Shrimp Shack. Giles swears by the shrimp burger at the JCT!
