About the property
- Condo1100 sqft
- Half Baths1
- Minimum Stay1 - 7 nights
2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8
The living room, king master bedroom suite, and panoramic deck all have completely unobstructed ocean views. Don’t be fooled: this Cedar Reef villa building is one of only two (D and K) that are TRUE oceanfront (we are D building). All of these other villa buildings have 1 to 3 buildings between them and the beach, AND sit perpendicular to the beach!
Located on private, gated Harbor Island, this villa is just steps away from:
• ocean and 3.2 miles of private, secluded, white, sandy beach
• 4 pools including one “Olympic” and one 'baby' (pools are typically
open and available from Easter or April 1st through the first
weekend of November)
• Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club (BRC)
• fitness center
• tennis courts
• putting greens
• sand volleyball court
• basketball court
• island store (open seasonally)
• café (open seasonally)
Audio-Visual: We added a 42-inch flat screen TV with cable television and DVD in the family room. Each bedroom has a flat screen cable TV. There is WIRELESS hi-speed Internet access and FREE long distance telephone calls within the continental U.S.!
Renovations: Since we acquired the property, we have updated the kitchen. The kitchen includes full-sized Whirlpool Duet washer/dryer, over the range microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, crockpot, new cabinets, new counters. We have re-painted the entire unit and added laminate wood floors on the entire first floor. We have replaced the entire heat/air conditioning systems, hot water heater and refrigerator. We replaced the carpeting in the upstairs hallway and both bedrooms as well as the stairs. We added a new L-shaped sofa with queen pull out bed.
Unit location: The entrance to our unit is located on the second floor of the building. It is a townhouse style unit with the bedrooms on the second floor of the unit and the kitchen, dining room and family room on the entry level. This allows for spectacular views over the dunes of the ocean and also allows the unit to feel more spacious and to give some separation from guests trying to sleep vs guests awake in the living area.

About Katie Thompson
Aaron & Katie Thompson have been married for 24 years and counting. We have two daughters, Sydney & Lydia. We live in Maryland. We all love the beach and water activities. Our favorite time of each year is when we can come to South Carolina to spend time together relaxing and enjoying all of the activities that the Low Country has to offer.
Katie Thompson purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Katie Thompson chose Saint Helena Island
We have been travelling to South Carolina for vacation ever since Katie's parents moved from Maryland to South Carolina in 1993. We love the weather, the southern charm and the unique peace and quiet of the low country beaches.

Okay if you’re on a budget and want to be close to the beach
The condo itself was clean and had been renovated with a nice deck overlooking the water - except that I was informed days before arriving that the deck was not useable. Since the deck is literally the cover photo of the property this was extremely disappointing. I was offered no monetary concession for this only repeatedly told this would not affect ththe view in any way. Although the condo interior is acceptable, the condo property is in bad shape. My Mom traveled with my sons and I and her first words after getting out of the car was “I sure hope you didn’t pay a lot for this place”. There were dumpsters in the parking lot, the grounds were poorly maintained and there was a lot of construction going on. The colorful houses on Harbor Island look really cute but the condos are not. Positive aspects - short 5 min walk across the wooden path to the private beach, you can still use the swim club pool and basketball courts. The beach water is extremely shallow - not a place for the kids to swim or boogie board - there are no waves... Good and bad aspects to that. Nearby hunting island has a nice beach with waves. The pool just opened when we were there so the water was freezing and the pools are not heated - also no hot tub on the property. Rent this unit if you want to be close to the beach and are on a budget. This is no fault of the property owner but I ended up not being able to arrive for a day after my reservation started and asked to extend my stay by a day - was told I couldn’t do that because the housekeeper wasn’t available the day after my departure. Considering she received a night of payment for me not being there I asked to depart a few hours later and again was told no due to housekeeper issues. Turns out there was no housekeeper at all lined up and her dad arrived to clean the place. So be prepared for little flexibility with this owner. In retrospect I would have rented a place in a nicer resort and paid a bit more to do so.
Clean Unit with great view
Will stay again. Unit is very clean and contains everything you need. Owner is very responsive and has gone out of her way to make staying at this place a breeze.
Nice and private...
Lots to do, enjoyed the beach...bathroom showers are really small to what we're use to and the frogs and love bugs make their presence known.
Wonderful 2-Bedroom Condo
Our family of 4 stayed for a week in July. The owner was real easy to work with and the instructions for accessing the Condo were spot on. Everything about the Condo exceeded our expectations. From the 3 comfortable beds, the 2 and 1/2 baths, to the deck furniture, this condo will not disappoint.
This was our 4th year vacationing on Harbor Island. The uncrowded beaches, the quite pools, and the relaxed feeling that sets in as soon as you pass the security station, makes this a yearly destination.
Really enjoyed our recent stay in Harbor Island. Apartment is well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. Easy beach access and the nearby pool with pergola is a gem for the hot South Carolina afternoons. Easy access to Hunting Island & Beaufort. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing low country vacation.
