Pictures do not show the open, airiness of this house which is set on an incredibly beautiful, white, sandy beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Most rooms offer mesmerizing views of the ocean, and it is a short walk over the dunes to the beach. Wildlife is abundant on the island. May and June, September and October are just magnificent here. See rates below for our Fall specials. Weekly rates from April - August is $1,950.
The house has an elevator that goes from the parking level up to the first floor; great for bringing babies, luggage, groceries up to the main level; also great for people who have difficulty with stairs.
Although the house sleeps four comfortably (one king size and one queen size bed), there is also a loft with a futon which converts to a double-size bed. The loft is reached by a beautiful, oak, spiral staircase.
The living room and kitchen have a cathedral ceiling. They are large rooms with a low wall between them adding to the open feeling in the house. The windows are large. You will never feel closed-in here. Glass sliding doors lead out from the kitchen to the all-weather enclosure where you can dine al fresco, without some of the annoyances of being outdoors, if you wish. The bedroom is a large room with a large walk-in closet. There is also a dining room.
The location of Harbor Island is fabulous for golfers (there are four public golf courses in the area) and for visiting such cities as Charleston, SC, Savannah,GA, and Hilton Head Island, SC. Historic Beaufort, often called 'Little Charleston,' is about 15 miles from the island and is a very charming and historic city. The Marine Corp training base at Parris Island is about 20 miles from Harbor Island.
