About the property

Located on a private, residential island, this large beachfront family condo has all you will need for a beach home away from home. The downstairs consists of two large bedrooms with queen sized beds, both with en suite bathrooms, living and dining areas, and a fully stocked kitchen. The front porch looks to the west over the marsh, and a screened back porch with additional seating for dining and lounging faces the beach, where you can watch the sunrise as you have your morning coffee. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms with a shared four piece bath. One bedroom is perfect for any children vacationing with your family, with two sets of bunkbeds (as well as a pack and play and high chair in the closet), a DVD player, child sized table and a small selection of toys, DVDs, and books. The second upstairs bedroom, facing the beach, has a queen bed and a daybed. Linens and towels (bath and beach) are provided, and there is a full laundry room. Under the house you will find plenty of covered parking, in addition to a storage room full of beach toys and chairs, a kayak, a large utility wagon, pop-up beach tent and a 10x10 standing tent. There is also an outdoor shower and foot-rinse area with a hose.

Harbor Island is a private, gated, residential island. This condo is located steps from the boardwalk that will take you to a beautiful beach, often so quiet that you will feel like you are on your own private island! You also have access to the Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club, with a large pool and baby pool, tennis and volleyball courts, and a gift shop/cafe.

You are only a mile or two away from Hunting Island State Park, where you can explore nature trails and climb to the top of a lighthouse for a great view of the coastline. While there are a number of good restaurants and shops nearby, you might enjoy a short drive to Beaufort, SC to walk around the riverfront, enjoy a carriage ride, and sample excellent and varied cuisine (we highly recommend the Chocolate Tree for a sweet treat... you may want to go more than once!).

Four generations of our family have enjoyed vacationing on Harbor Island for nearly three decades. We would love for you to make this a special place and a tradition for your family.

beach stay!!

  • 5 of 5

even though the weather did not cooperate, we had a great time. Beach was quiet this time of year, great walks in the morning and evening. House was fun to be in while it was raining, and raining...... Very clean and comfy. Thanks, Gina

Great for multiple families with kids

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this location! It had plenty of room for kids and having 3 bathrooms was nice for multiple families. The pool was large, clean, and kid friendly. The beach was great except for the longer walk (toting stuff) and evening mosquitoes from the marshy spots. Overall we would return and recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you! I know the island "powers that be" are trying to combat the mosquito problem, so next time you go back...maybe it won't be so bad. Glad you had the wagon to haul your goodies down in! Patti Ann

Wonderful stay by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the beachfront property in Harbor Island. The place worked so great for our family of 6 and we had a whole extra room we didn't utilize. It was awesome to have the three bathrooms so everyone had more than enough space there as well. It was also so nice having all of the awesome beach stuff available. Our kids loved having a boogie board and it was great to have the canopy and chairs for us adults. Patti Ann was also a great communicator and made the whole trip super smooth. We would definitely rebook and stay again next time we travel to the area!

Great, family-friendly beach house. Can't beat the location and amenities included. Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a family! Clean and cozy, we were impressed with how big the rooms were. We also loved the beautiful beach views from the back windows and the essential beach toys/chairs/wagons/towels/tent needed to make our beach vacation a great one. The property is only a short board walk to the beach (about 5 minutes). The beach was great and had soft sand and was never crowded. The tide would be out during the day and the kids loved walking out and exploring the exposed sand bars. We also loved the house was stocked with plenty of board games, dvds, and legos. The house is in a gated community and the amenities were great. You are a close walk to the pool, volleyball courts, tennis courts, and basketball hoop. The kids loved walking the community...we even saw a gator or two!! Outside the gated community there are great places to eat, pick up fresh shrimp and seafood, and explore a few stores (Barefoot Bubbas is super close with free ice cream)! Hunting Island is also right down the road. The charming city of Beaufort is 20 minutes away. We highly recommend, it was a great vacation!
