About Pete Newcomb
Hello, It is a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to provide a place for people to come enjoy the natural beauty of my hometown. I live and work in Beaufort and whenever possible we enjoy escaping to the beach with friends, family, and of course our dogs.
Pete Newcomb purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Pete Newcomb chose St Helena Island
Our pet friendly, ocean view villa is situated on the second floor. Conveniently, the condominium building has an elevator very near the unit which also provides for a private entrance. The screened in porch protects overlooks the pool and beach. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and private and entrance to the master bath with plenty of closet space. Separate towels for the bathroom and beach are provided. The kitchen has all of the basic cookware if you decide to stay in for the night. The bar/dining area provide for a nice open interactive atmosphere for families. The villa has great Wi-Fi and cable. If you are in the mood for a stroll on the beach there are many convenient walkways. The beach is never crowded. It is three miles of breathtaking beauty! Harbor Island is also a wildlife preserve that hosts a variety of beautiful creatures. The private island sits within the Atlantic Flyway. Numerous species of bird migrate here annually. It is also a nesting area for loggerhead turtles. During the summer months the turtles hatch and journey to the sea for the very first time!. Please remember no flash lights on the beach. The turtles mistake the light for the moon and are mislead. The island is very welcoming of domestic pets, although dogs must remain leashed at all times. Island amenities include 3 pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, and bike rentals. There is also a fitness center and general store located in the Beach and Racquet Club. The BRC is a 2 minute walk across from the villa building. The BRC has a beautiful view, Jacuzzi, volleyball court, and a playground for the kiddos!

Great Ocean View From Screened Porch
The location of this condo is very convenient to the beach and pool. It is not fancy but it is certainly comfortable which we appreciate. Our favorite feature is the screened porch. We spent hours sitting and watching the ocean. Harbor Island is a great place for walking either on the beach or on the quiet roads and this is how we would begin our day. After a leisurely breakfast, we would drive into Beaufort to enjoy the sights of downtown. We plan to book this condo again for next year's visit.
Im giving this review over coffee and sunrise as we prepare to pack and leave. Leaving Is something we definitely do not want to do!
This was our first trip to this area and it was beautiful. The unit was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The island was very private. Never more than a couple dozen people on the beach this time year, which is just what we were looking for and perfect for anyone just looking for something different from the busyness of the typical vacation spots. Pete was fantastic keeping us up to date with conditions since Hurricane Florence made it's way to the coast a couple days prior to our arrival. Fortunately, the area was spared. We hope to make this an annual venture.
Thanks Pete! More than expected!
A Lovely Time at Harbor Island
The property and grounds were lovely and had everything we needed. The condo was comfortable and actually quite spacious for a one-bedroom condo. We would definitely return.
View is amazing and location to the beach is great! Loved the pool.
It was a good place to unplug from the internet. The condo was well furnished and nicely decorated. We stayed in the summer and you have to wear bug spray outside because of mosquitoes. The beach is a boardwalk walk away through dunes. Beautiful Harbor Island setting with small wake waves. Front of condo is dog walk but be careful if walking pets on grass for burs. The burs are sharp and burrow quickly. The condo has all the amenities you need and there is a Walmart for groceries not too far away. Docksiders restaurant on Lady's Island was very good. Boon docks Not worth your money or time!
Local dining, shopping, and historic landmarks.
Additional information about rental rates
Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Please note that there is a combination required for the keys to the condo. The owner requests that you contact them one day before for arrival to obtain code. This is also when your island car pass will be called in. Thanks in advance!
