About the owner: Thanks for visiting my vrbo website. I am blessed to be able to share God's wonderful creation. Harbor Island is an absolutely beautiful private island & beach.
My family & I call Statesboro, Ga on Cypress Lake home....However, my 'Bird's I Vue'' is our special place at the beach. I am so very easily drawn to both places to enjoy the wonders of this earth.
After 30+ years of children in my daily life, I retired as a preschool owner/director/teacher in 2000.
My career has been filled w/ preschoolers plus 53 years of marriage.
Early retirement has given me the opportunity to be a 'Granny' to my 3 wonderful grandsons & 1 God sent granddaughter.
#1 on my 'Bucket List', ENJOY A SLOWER PACE.
Harbor Island has been the solution to #1 on my 'Bucket List'.
#2 - Relax, Enjoy = Make more 'Treasured Memories'
I am pleased to share 'Bird's I Vue'', a part of my life's blessings, with each of you.
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island: I shopped for many miles up & down the Georgia and Carolina coasts to find just the right place for investment & enjoyment. The minute I walked into this condo I knew it was 'the one'. The view ('Bird's I Vue'') was worth it all. However, the condo needed a lot of work. So I put on my creative hat to make fun out of all the work that was required. Gradually the updates have been coming. Thanks to my renters it possible for me to update as necessary.
I am pleased to find that my renters have been respectful of the condo property. Therefore, because of renters favorable history a property damage deposit is only required if you bring your pet...and I have found that pets have not been a problem. Well behaved renters & their pets are welcomed. Please make yourself at home. Welcome to Harbor Island's 'Bird's I Vue'
