Recent Harbor Island reviews
"We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful house for a family weekend getaway. The house is much bigger than the pictures. Everyone had plenty of space and was very comfortable. The master bedroom is lovely with an incredible view. It is obvious that the owners have given a lot of love and consideration into the decoration of the house. Each room was very special and much attention had been made to the smallest details. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a gourmet meal. The water pressure was great (important for those of us who like a nice shower). The views were just beautiful. We had a great time riding around in the golf cart. The beach is wonderful! We found some fantastic shells and went for nice long walks. We will be staying here again."Guest: Stacey Newton Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 9, 2014View listing

"Our family stayed in this condo for a last minute family vacation and it was wonderful. The condo is exactly as described and included everything you would need. The condo is VERY clean and right at the pool. It's also on the bottom floor so you don't have to drag your luggage up many stairs at all. Overall, it was a great place to stay and you couldn't have asked for a better owner to rent from. We will definitely be back in the future. Thanks Again Beth :)"Guest: Dana Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 28, 2014View listing
Harbor Island Travel Tips
Harbor Island is located 15 miles outside the city of Beaufort, South Carolina. This 1,400-acre barrier island offers visitors an escape from busy lives and a private island where they'll find peace and quiet. The island is famous for oat-covered sand dunes and coastal grasses.
Harbor Island Attractions
The resort itself has three outdoor pools, tennis courts, a putting green and three miles of sandy white beach that will give you the privacy you've been looking for in a vacation. When you spend a day out in the sand and sun, the kids will enjoy building sandcastles and splashing in the water while you catch some rays and enjoy a good book.
There's plenty of wildlife you're likely to encounter during your stay in Harbor Island. Whether you want to go for a walk along the marshes to check out the pelicans, egrets or herons, or watch the dolphins play as you relax among the sand dunes, you'll be amazed at the creatures you'll see roaming the land.
Hunting Island State Park is located near Harbor Island and an isolated spot to enjoy peace and quiet. This 5,000-acre barrier island was previously used as a hunting ground, but has since been converted into a state park. There's plenty of wildlife to be seen as well as four miles of beach, a maritime forest and a saltwater marsh. The quiet retreat is also home to a 19th century lighthouse and is the island's most popular attraction. You can climb to the top and get beautiful views of the coastline.
Things to Do in Harbor Island
Seafood: The catch of the day is the perfect dish while staying in Harbor Island. Be sure to check out some of the best restaurants in the South Carolina lowcountry including Johnson Creek Restaurant and Tavern, Bella Luna Cafe, LLC, Foolish Frog, Magnolia Bakery Cafe, MoonDoggies Cafe And Grill, Panini's Cafe and Saltus River Grill. You may even want to consider buying some fresh seafood and take it back to your Harbor Island vacation rental to make your own feast.
Outdoor recreation: Playing on the beach is the top outdoor activity for visitors to the island. Kids can learn a new trick on the boogie board, or you can try it out yourself. Rent a kayak and paddle your way out into the water and gasp at the breathtaking views of the seemingly endless ocean or the community along the shore.
St. Helena Island: Just across the bridge from Harbor Island is St. Helena Island. The island is home to Penn Center, one of the first schools that was opened to children of freed slaves. It's also the site of where Martin Luther King, Jr., drafted his "I Have a Dream" speech. There are several shrimp docks on St. Helena Island and much of the agriculture is still cultivated by native residents that descended from the island's original inhabitants. Head to downtown Frogmore where you can shop, dine and visit local art galleries.
