About the property

Beach House Condo, 1 BR + Queen Sleep Sofa, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beach House Villas are located in a quiet, gated community on Harbor Island. Harbor Island is a private barrier island located just 15 miles east of Beaufort, SC. The island offers three miles of pristine and uncrowded sandy beach.

Our recently upgraded condo features plenty of space for up to four guests, and has all the comforts of home. It features a fully-equipped kitchen with stove, refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and coffee maker. In addition, there is stackable washer and dryer in the condo. The master bedroom features a comfortable king size bed and has its own full bath. There is another half bath just steps down the hall. The new sofa in the living room easily converts to a

queen-sized bed and there are cozy chairs for you to curl up in with your favorite book. There is a screened balcony off the living room on which you can sit and relax with your morning coffee or evening refreshments as you enjoy a beautiful ocean view and soft breezes . Please note that smoking is not allowed in our home.

Our building has shared access to one of the three outdoor pools in the community and is just steps from the beach. The beach is just a 2 minute walk from our front door. And, the pool is just a one minute walk from our front door. There are also charcoal grills just to the right of the pool area.

The Beach and Racquet Club offers a large pool and a kiddie pool, and a souvenir and snack shop. There is also beach volleyball area and a playground. Tennis courts, basketball, and shuffle board are also available for you to enjoy. The fitness center at the BRC features a weight room, treadmills, and stationary bicycles.

You'll travel Route 21 to Harbor Island. When you arrive on Lady's Island, you'll find a Publix Supermarket and just beyond that, a brand new Walmart. These are ideal places for you to shop for groceries and other beach vacation essentials. Not far beyond Walmart, you'll find fresh vegetable stands where you'll find the freshest produce as well as fresh seafood at great prices; please consider supporting our local farmers and fishermen.

Harbor Island has lots of outdoor activities for you to enjoy while you're visiting. Consider going fishing, crabbing, ‘shrimping’, or boating. Or maybe get a little exercise; you can swim, hop on a boogie board, stroll the beach, fly a kite, rent a kayak, or take a bicycle ride along the beach. And for those who prefer to relax, well, you can sit back and enjoy the magnificent beach.

We'd truly be remiss if we didn't suggest a day trip to Beaufort sometime during your stay. U.S. News and World Report just named Beaufort the most charming town in South Carolina in its annual list of “50 Charming Small Towns to Visit Across Every State”. Beaufort is rich in history and is the home to many Civil War-era homes. In town, you'll find museums, art galleries, boutique shopping, many great restaurants, and so much more. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride, a historic walking tour, evening cruise, or get yourself an ice cream and find an empty swing in Waterfront Park and take in the scenery. It's a short drive that's worth the trip!

Whatever you choose to do, we think you'll fall in love with Harbor Island and want to come back to visit again soon :-)

Your hosts,

Robyn & Gary

About Robyn Newton

Gary and I moved from Massachusetts to South Carolina in 2015. When we'd visited Beaufort, we fell in love with the area, and decided to call SC home. We truly love living here. We enjoy the landscape, weather, food, people, wildlife, history, and so much more. For us, there is truly something magical about the Low Country and as we like to say, 'we didn't grow up in the South, but we got here as fast as we could!'

Robyn Newton purchased this condo in 2017

Why Robyn Newton chose Saint Helena Island

We love being at the beach and believe we've found the perfect spot to enjoy the sea right here on Harbor Island. We love our beachside condo, which is just steps away from 3 miles of unspoiled sandy beach. We have found our happy place by the sea.

What makes this condo unique

Harbor Island is a gated community, which means you we enjoy beaches that are pristine, uncrowded, and safe. The property also features 3 pools, outdoor showers, charcoal grills, tennis courts, a fitness center, playground, beach volleyball court, and more! There is truly something for everyone in the family!

Beautiful Beach Condo and Wonderful Island!

  • 5 of 5

My little family and I enjoyed our stay at "Vitamin Sea"! The home was perfectly decorated, very charming, clean and met all of our needs during our stay! The king size bed was so comfortable- it was hard to go home! Robyn and Gary provided perfect little "touches" that made our stay even more enjoyable. Harbor Island is a tiny island with a beautiful, small beach. It felt very safe and we were often surprised how often we had the beach to ourselves. When high tide arrives, there is very little beach, but it is great for walking on. At low tide, the sand bars and gentle waves made it perfect for young children. We greatly enjoyed Marsh Tacky for breakfast and lunch, Boondocks and Foolish Frog for dinner! Beaufort was a charming town with lots of history. Overall, we'd recommend Vitamin Sea to anyone! We loved our stay!

Beautiful Condo with beach included!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked in to this beautiful condo we felt right at home. Robyn has thought of everything from comfortable furniture to goodies in the fridge. The real bonus for us was the very comfortable king size bed. The gated community is not only beautiful and quiet but you can hear the ocean from the screened in porch! We had a tiny problem with the washing machine, and Robyn had it fixed the moment we let her know. We highly recommend this lovely condo and would not hesitate to rent it again.

Wonderfully gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Because of Hurricane Irma storms, we canceled and didn't make it to Robyn and Gary's place as planned. However we are sure that they are the most wonderful gracious hosts, and we plan to make the journey to SC -- outside of hurricane season!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, Andrew! We're truly sorry that Irma spoiled your plans to visit Harbor Island, SC, but we're delighted you've decided to stay with us next year. We're looking forward to meeting you in person :-) ~Robyn & Gary

Loved the small touches

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and such a nice lady! They were gracious to accommodate our arrival time. There were so many extra little touches that you just enjoyed looking around. The only downside we found was the continual construction that was going on as the surrounding units were renovated. We would definitely recommend staying and it worked very well as a place to stay for our sons Marine graduation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our condo, and for your kind words. We sincerely appreciate your feedback. We are very glad that you enjoyed your vacation on Harbor Island and that you were pleased with the accommodations. We agree that the little touches help to make a house feel more like a home! Thank you for your understanding about the ongoing construction on the island. Many of our neighbors are working to rebuild their homes after having suffered extensive property damage from Hurricane Matthew last year. We're hopeful that by this time next year renovations will be complete and our neighbors will return to their homes and be able to enjoy the island as we do. Kind regards, Robyn & Gary
