Paradise Found. The moment you enter the gate of Harbor Island your cares begin to melt away. Harbor Island is a small, laid back, private island with over 2 miles of dunes and sugar sand beach. There is no public access so the beach is always uncrowded. Activities abound, fishing, crabbing, shelling, kayaking and bicycling and much more.
There are only a few ocean front villas on the island, and they are located in either the D or K buildings. Our unit is in K which is more secluded and private than D. K is also closer to the Beach and Raquet Club, which is the activity center of the island. The club has an Olympic swimming pool, kiddie pool, and children's playground. The club house has an aerobic room and weight room on the lower level. Upstairs there is a snack bar and store, and covered balcony. You will also find volleyball, basketball, tennis, shuffle board, and horseshoe courts.
Our villa is perfect for your beach vacation. Inside the unit on the lower level you will find a comfortable Living Room with a oceanfront view, 55 inch flatscreen TV w/dvd, and electric fireplace. There is a queen sleeper sofa, dual reclining love seats, and a Lay-Z-Boy recliner. There is also a well appointed kitchen, dining area and 1/2 bath. Lastly, step through the sliding glass doors onto the balcony. There you will find a table, chairs, beach umbrella, chaise lounge and one of the best views on the island.
On the upper level there are 2 bedrooms, each with private bath and plenty of closet space. The guest bedroom has a Queen Bed, and a rocking chair and a flat screen TV w/dvd. The master bedroom has a Queen bed, flat screen TV w/dvd, and a wonderful 8ft window seat overlooking the dunes and ocean and is the perfect place to read or take a nap.
Outside the unit there are swimming pools just off each end of the building, and the boardwalk over the dunes to the beach.
In short, everything you need for a memorable family vacation or a romantic getaway.

About Lloyd Peterson
My Wife and I are both Attorneys and live in Lake City, Florida. We have 3 Teenage Sons. We are very involved with our Church and its Youth Ministry.
Lloyd Peterson purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Lloyd Peterson chose Saint Helena Island
My wife grew up in Naples, Florida before it was discovered and overdeveloped. She wanted a place where the Beach was always uncrowded and the atmosphere relaxing and casual. Such a Beach does not exist anymore in Florida. We searched the coast until we discovered Harbor Island.
What makes this Condo unique
We love this Villa because of the Beautiful Uninterrupted View of the Dunes and Ocean. It's just steps from 2 Swimming Pools and the Club House with all the Amenities is just across the street. We feel it's the best location on the Island

This was one of the nicest beach condos we have ever stayed in! The decor was so tasteful and wonderfully put together. The furniture and bedding were all very nice. Of course our favorite spot in the condo was the lovely window seat with a spectacular view. It was cold and windy during our stay but we didn’t mind at all because we truly enjoyed the comforts of the condo. This was our first trip to this area but definitely not our last! There are so many places to explore, Hunting beach was beautifully untamed. If your looking for a lovely place to stay that includes the beach and tourism, I can’t imagine a better place. Mr. Peterson was very responsive and helpful which made the booking process so easy. The community of Harbor Island was very nice and easy to access. Thank you so much for sharing your condo we look forward to our next visit!
Property was very well maintained and decorated. Furnishings were intended to make this unit a home and not just a rental. Owner was always quick to respond to my email questions. I have stayed in this area for 18 years and this was one of the nicest units I have stayed it. Would recommend it to anyone.
First and foremost, I'd like to say how amazing the owner, Mr. Lloyd Peterson is to work with. He was immediately on top of any issue, concern or question I had. Also he quickly returned my $100 damage deposit. You truly can not rent from a nicer guy! The unit is very nicely updated, has quality furnishings and the beds are super comfy. This unit is right at the boardwalk to the beach and the views are amazing! I would definitely rent this unit again...partially because the unit is so nice and equally because of Mr. Peterson. Thank you Mr. Peterson....my family and I had a wonderful time!
Wonderful property just steps from the beach!
First experience renting for a month. Our 2 bedroom condo was clean, thoughtfully furnished, and had all amenities including WiFi. Owner very helpful coordinating our day and overnight visitors. LOTS of nearby restaurants with delicious seafood and great friendly service, although we "ate in" a lot, too. Many good reasonably priced golf courses nearby. Pete graduated from Parris Island 57 years ago so it was fun to visit there and see all the changes that have been made. Charleston and Savannah were great day trips. Our bedroom's window allowed us to see gorgeous sunrises every morning, and a short walk took us to an area to watch the sunsets. Hunting Island State Park and Penn Center were so close and fun excursions We lucked into great weather, especially since people at home in NY were dealing with temperatures in the teens. All in all it was a wonderful vacation and we would recommend Harbor Island on St Helena to all.
Beautiful newly remodeled! Very tasteful. Great waterfront property.
Loved the peace & quiet. Beautiful water front property! Found some really good restaurants close by & in Beaufort. Would go back!
The condo was nicely furnished. View was great. The mosquitoes were very bad. Don"t know if it was just the time of year or what. One of the burners on the right side of stove didn't work at all and the other one on the right just part of the time. Otherwise everything was ok. I had trouble with the number of steps. Didn't realize there would be so many. When we got there, the owner had not notified the gate and we couldn't get in until I went over to my grandaughter's and printed out a copy of the information from the computer confirming our stay. For other's reference, take a printed out copy of your confirmation with you.
