  • Wonderful

    "Had famiiy reunion on Fripp Island and had a last minute need for extra room. Bill was most accommodating and the condo was great! Would recommend this property to friends and family."

  • Low Country Paradise!

    "My wife and I stayed at the Misty Breeze for a month this past Winter. This home is perfectly situated and equipped as far as I am concerned. From the decks we watched the sun rise in the morning and watched it set at night. As the tide ebbed and flowed throughout the day the adjacent canal and salt marsh were filled with wildlife. We saw river otters, dolphins, wading birds, diving birds and even two wood storks! The home has two large decks facing the marsh and the wave-filled inlet, each deck has unobstructed views. Misty Breeze is very well equipped, there are pots and pans, dishes and utinsels for preparing any size meal as well as virtually any small electrical kitchen appliance you might think of. We visited in Winter and found there were numerous additional blankets and quilts, a propane fireplace, and a very efficient heat pump. This house is beautifully decorated, actually it has about every coastal themed decoration you could think of. The feel of the house is of a home, not a rental. Access to the main level is by stairs as the house is elevated, access to two bedrooms is also by stairs. We have rented well over thirty properties through VRBO over the years, my wife and I agree that this one is the best of all."

  • Great location! Classic beach house!

    "We just got back from our first trip to Fripp and loved it. We chose between 2 houses and were so glad that we went with this one. The location is IDEAL. It's close to the Beach Club (island center) and right across from the beach. The beach access is 1 house over and a very easy 3 min walk. You can walk in 5-7 minutes or cart to the Beach Club (pool, food court, tennis courts, restaurant, cute shop). Quick description: Fripp is a small (3 miles) island that is enjoyed by golf cart. There are amenities like pools, activity center for kids, 2 golf courses, live music at night, a marina and 2 (sit down) restaurants but it does NOT feel "fancy". The home is your classic "shotgun" beach house with 1 main living area and 4 bedrooms off of that main room/kitchen. The bedrooms have jack-n-jill bathrooms. The kitchen has been upgraded and there are 2 sitting areas in the living area so the kids can watch tv while the grown ups talk. Since our kids are older and sleep late, this floorplan was fine for us. If you have toddlers screaming and running at 6am, this floorplan might not be great for anyone wanting to sleep in. Again, for us, it was GREAT. Downstairs was a carport, laundry room, outside hot/cold shower and a storage room full of beach accessories. (No umbrella so bring yours if you like shade) The house was charming, clean and had everything we needed. (2 adults and 4 kids) We loved this trip and this home! We kept patting ourselves on the back for getting such a great house simply by researching VRBO. If you want beach access, location on the island and a traditional beach house, look no further. Thanks to the owners for being easy to work with. We will be back next year!"

  • Family getaway

    "Great house for large family. Everything was clean and well decorated. Loved seeing the owls off the back porch. Our only problem was we couldn't find the pack n' play that was listed on the web site. However, Harbor Rental was great and brought one over for us. We will definitely consider this cottage again! Thanks for a wonderful week!"

Low Country & Resort Islands Travel Tips

The coastal islands and low country of South Carolina are truly unspoiled and naturally beautiful. With quiet sandy beaches, marshes alive with wading birds, some of the best championship golf courses and charming towns to visit, the South Carolina Low Country is hard to beat. Many people who come here on vacation end up retiring to this lovely area due to its mild winters and gentle pace of life.

The Pros and Cons of Low Country Vacation Rentals

Whether you are looking for a quiet beach escape or a livelier resort such as Hilton Head Island, you will find plenty of vacation homes and condos to choose from. Although they do not have room service or a daily maid to clean the bathroom, they do have other advantages which may outweigh the small negatives. Vacation rentals are more spacious even than expensive hotel suites. The furnishings are to a high standard and you can watch cable TV and videos from a comfortable sofa or armchair, rather than sitting on the bed. Kids get their own rooms and better still, their own bathrooms. A fully fitted kitchen makes dining-in a money-saving option, unlike a hotel room. Vacation rentals often have a private balcony or terrace for sitting outside and some offer hot tubs, play areas and swimming pools on-site, making them the ideal option for flexible family vacations.

Low Country Beach Rentals Make the Perfect Base for Family Vacations

South Carolina has plenty of things to see and do for all the family. Choose a beachfront rental and the children will spend hours shell-hunting, digging in the sand, and playing in the sea. Larger resorts offer windsurfing, jet skiing, surfing and snorkeling. The coastal estuaries are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Rent bicycles and leisurely explore the byways and trails on two wheels. Book a half-day fishing trip or boat trip. Towns offer plenty of restaurants, cinemas, theaters, shopping and antiquing. Beach rental homes are the perfect ways to enjoy quality time together as a family, building long-lasting memories to treasure.

Places to Visit Around South Carolina’s Low Country

There are a host of delightful places to visit within easy reach of your vacation home. Savannah is a beautiful and historic city just over the border in Georgia. Further north is the delightful and historic waterfront city of Charleston. Take a horse-drawn carriage tour and learn about its fascinating history. Beaufort is a waterfront artists’ community with a charming collection of historic homes. Head for the harbor where fishing boats will be moored. The Shrimp Festival in early October celebrates the local cuisine with live entertainment and some great food. The ACE Basin Refuge is a bird-watcher’s paradise where numerous birds pass through on their migratory route. See painted bunting, songbirds, herons, birds of prey and osprey along with plenty of local wildlife. The Hunting Island Lighthouse is one of the many which were built along the South Carloina coastline. You can even climb to the top for the best sea views.

Getting to South Carolina’s Low Country

The nearest airport in South Carolina is Charleston International Airport which is 49 miles from Beaufort and a little further from Hilton Head Island vacation rentals. Alternatively, enjoy the scenic roads and drive to your South Carolina Lowlands vacation home.

Low Country Condos are Perfect All Year Long

One of South Carolina’s biggest draws is its delightful year-round climate. Classed as having a humid, subtropical climate, many snowbirds and retirees choose to spend their winters along South Carolina’s shores. Temperatures are cooler on the coast than inland in the summer, with sea breezes tempering the 90 F (32 C) weather often experienced further inland. Cold snaps during the winter may see temperatures drop below freezing occasionally but the days remain pleasantly warm averaging 60 F (16 C) even in January. The state gets some rain throughout the year but it is heaviest in late summer when up to five inches may fall in short but heavy showers.
