Quiet Family Vacation
"Absolutely wonderful! This is the perfect place to get away from it all and that's EXACTLY what we needed! Situated about 20 minutes past Beaufort, this getaway is somewhat conveniently located between Savannah (1.25hr) & Charleston (2hr)--perfect for a day trip if you've had enough R & R. However, Beaufort was our favorite day trip as it's close, quaint & packed full of history! Even closer by, we visited Hunting Island and its lighthouse and beach--the forest is beautiful! Not to be outdone, there was plenty to do just outside our door, whether it was walking the beach, fishing, exploring the marsh or watching the birds. However, my personal favorite spot was the screened porch, where I could be found pretty much anytime we were home (except when I was sleeping.) Its the perfect place to catch the sea breezes, listen to the waves, watch the tides roll in and out and view some wildlife.
The Haven was just that, our haven for the week. Every time we went out, the kids just wanted to go back and relax (ok, maybe they had enough history lessons too ;)) Regardless, the Haven provided everything we could possibly need and there was plenty of room to spread out (2 adults, 3 teenagers.) The décor and amenities are top notch. The owners really made this feel like a home, not a rental property, and we really appreciated that!
This was our first visit to the South Carolina low country, and we cannot wait to go back! If you crave a nice quiet vacation away from all the other vacationers, this is the place for you! You will not be disappointed!"

"I was sick all but the first partial day of my stay, ended up going home early, but really appreciated how very clean and comfortable this condo was. The bed was better than my own at home and the linens were every bit as wonderful as the thick, big bath towels! The rocking chair on the screened in patio was the perfect place to spend some time with a cup of tea and a good book. Nice surprise was the flat screen TV instead of the small bookcase TV in the pictures! Kitchen was fully stocked and everything in the condo worked well. Hope to return someday to get to enjoy the beach :-)"

"We were thrilled with our visit to Harbor Island. From check-in to check-out, everything was a pleasure. This condo is charming, homey, and spacious, with a very comfortable king suite. We were quite thrilled with the accommodations. We cooked a lot and found the kitchen to be perfectly appointed with everything we needed. The back deck, facing the ocean, was right in the middle of the condo with a lovely view of the Atlantic. We spotted five dolphins, very close to the shore, during a morning walk down the beach. The beach was never crowded, but the people were charming and friendly. Plenty of wide shore for Bocce Ball (provided with the condo). Gay Fish Market was only a mile or so away, several souvenir shops and another fresh market were less than a quarter mile away; supermarket shopping was about 20 minutes from the condo; and there were numerous fine dining establishments scattered in between. We spent a couple of days in Savannah/Tybee Island, as well, just over an hour from the island. We were very impressed with the laid back, relaxing atmosphere. The pass to Hunting Island was certainly a plus. Our visit to the lighthouse was exciting and the views were a delight. The beach on Hunting Island was extreme fun for us as well as our two teenagers. Lots of big waves and heavy currents! The beach at the condo had very calm waters. Overall, the condo was extremely relaxing; perfectly cool HVAC; the swimming pool was very nice (just around the corner from the deck or the front entrance to the condo); the condo had clean/hot water; and all of the amenities were in working order. Our wholehearted thanks to Barbara for a much needed, relaxing vacation in the low country of South Carolina."

"We really enjoyed our stay at Harbor Island in this wonderful condo. It was clean and decorated in such a cute way that we felt right at home. We were very surprised at how spacious the main rooms were and we loved how close it was to the pool. Our granddaughter spent many hours playing in the pools, including the large one at the resort. My daughter and I were able to take fantastic photos of the birds at the sanctuary that was right next to the pool, including a Great Egret feeding her three babies. One morning we were thrilled to see fresh turtle tracks and got to watch the experts staking out the nest. This place is great and Brian was very responsive when we called to ask questions. I highly recommend this rental."
