About Pete Newcomb


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 Saint 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!

What makes this villa unique

Should you desire to venture into town, "Beautiful Beaufort by the Sea" is just 14 miles east. An adorable coastal town you can enjoy some local caught seafood and unique local shopping. Beaufort also has some interesting stop offs for the history buff in the family. From the native Gullah heritage, the Civil War history, or the impressive list of movies filmed here there is sure to be something to capture your intrigue!

Guestbook comments from the owner

February is a wonderful time to stay on Harbor Island. We, and this includes the Dougy the dog, enjoyed walking the beaches daily. Hunting Island State Park is a fascinating place with lots of hikes.

The condo was perfect for the 3 of us. If there is a negative comment it would be the closets were filled and the kitchen facuet needs updating.

We certainly recommend a stay here.

The Best View period

  • 5 of 5

We were able to add some extra time to our vacation getaway in FL. Did a search and found this great location. St Helena, Harbor Island South Carolina. First time for us in South Carolina. Lots to do and a fantastic Nature lovers paradise.

What a great location!! You have miles of pristine private beach. Very safe community. Really easy to access the community and check in. The grounds are great. We were on the 2nd floor and there was even an elevator to take our luggage up. Nice!

The Condo is very well appointed. Large one bedroom unit. Nice flooring. The bedroom has plenty of room. The bed was the Most Comfortable bed we have slept on. The couch was very comfortable as well. Loved the screened in balcony and sat there all the time at the Bistro. The view from within the condo is the best !! I was up every morning just to watch the sun come up over the ocean. Really nice and quiet here. We walked miles on the beach every day. Could never get tired of that. The boardwalk to the beach is very nice.

So interesting when the tide is out. Had the whole beach to ourselves many times.

Pete was very helpful with any info required.

We have already booked a longer stay for next year.

Thank you Pete for sharing your place with us

Cozy, quiet condo with a view! Perfect for a small family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! The condo is cozy and private and the view from the porch is great. Having 2 children in tow, we especially appreciated everything that was at the condo for our use which meant less to pack. The pools by the racquet club were amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time there. The beach is absolutely beautiful. It was so quiet and peaceful with very few people. Such a nice change from the other overcrowded beaches in SC that we are used to. My one and only complaint is that the mosquitoes around the resort and the condo were absolutely INSANE. If you are prone to mosquito bites, I would strongly recommend bringing bug spray.

Overall our stay was wonderful and we are hoping to make this an annual trip for our family!

Harbor Island was peaceful and safe!

We loved our stay! Harbor Island is wonderful for families young and old. We enjoyed looking for sea turtles at night, seeing tons of hermit crabs and loved having pool access! A definite recommendation for anyone!
