About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 -1/2 Baths (1/2 is Outside Shower & is WONDERFUL!!!)

If you are looking for a getaway that offers peace and solitude, in stylish and tasteful accommodations, then check our calendar for availability and make your reservation today! This lovely cottage has been updated and beautifully decorated in a fine southern coastal flair. It is surrounded by live oaks draped with Spanish moss, and is central to all of Seabrook Islands charms. Come, relax, and enjoy Seabrook's uncrowded beaches; take a morning stroll on the nature trail; kayak on the many creeks and waterways; or bike on the quiet streets of the island. Seabrook is a lovely place to honeymoon or to reconnect with your loved ones and build memories to last a lifetime. Plus, Low Country Retreat has 4 Beach Bikes for your enjoyment! Don't worry about bringing your own bikes or having to rent them when you get here. They will be waiting on you and your family to tour the island! 6 Tommy Bahama Backpack Beach Chairs are also there so no need to pack your own. A brand new Weber Spirit Stainless Steel Grill has also recently added so you can grill those catches from the day or just a great steak or burger for the kids.

The Sleeping Loft is a huge hit with kids of all ages and is a completely customized with 4 built in galley style twin beds with drawers and cubby's for storage. Also in Kid Land there is a 32' Flat Screen/DVD Combo TV and X Box Gaming System so kids bring those games, or there are a few to choose from for your convenience! The master bedroom is bright and cheerful and has its own private fully renovated bathroom. It features a King Bed bed with a Thermarest mattress and down pillowtop. A flat screen HDTV in the corner will provide the morning news while you enjoy that first cup of coffee. The second bedroom offers a full size bed with a twin trundle bed.

Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, or have wine and an intimate conversation while seated inside the screened-in porch that features plenty of privacy. You can use the front porch for sitting in the sun, reading a book, or just to watch the deer as they wander by in the evenings. Inside the front door is the comfortable heart of the cottage, a spacious combined living room/dining room area with fireplace, HDTV with DVD, and plenty of seating. If you enjoy a good read, there is an excellent selection of books tucked away throughout the house and all of the books are appropriate for taking to the beach or porch. The galley kitchen is very functional and well equipped. You will also appreciate having a washer and dryer at your disposal.

If you wish, take advantage of the fabulous new community Lake House facility with its well-equipped fitness center, heated indoor pool, large outdoor pool, basketball court, playground, and many varied exercise classes. Or, explore old historic Charleston and discover the many fine restaurants, historic homes, old slave market, and art galleries. Guided horse and carriage tours of the battery and surrounding areas are also available and highly recommended. You will also want to visit the Ashley River Plantations at Drayton Hall, Magnolia House, and Middleton Place.

Amenity Cards are available for the Full Seabrook Island Club experience. We keep our rates low so you have the option!!! Passes are $25/day or $150/week.

Freshfields Village is located just outside the Seabrook Island gate and has many excellent shops, fine restaurants, a wonderful grocery with a large impressive wine selection, and a sports store where you can purchase everything you need for the beach. Don't miss Friday evening at Freshfields! Picnic on the lawn with a glass of wine and listen to a live band while the kids run, dance and play. Or take the kids to watch an outdoor movie on the lawn on Wednesday night.

Our cottage is meticulously maintained and frequently updated to maintain a fresh and stylish decor. The artwork, furnishings, and room colors have been carefully selected to reflect a sense of casual Low Country beach luxury. You'll find ceiling fans and ample lighting through-out. Underneath the cottage there is an enclosed utility shower that's perfect for rinsing off the beach sand before trekking upstairs. There's also plenty of room to stow away your gear--beach chairs, bikes, and fishing/crabbing equipment--or for children to play. And, covered parking for two cars is provided. Our cottage offers wireless high speed internet, satellite TV, local telephone service, and a gas grill. With the exception of beach towels, all linens are provided, and end-of-stay cleaning for 7 nights or more is included at no additional cost. Sorry but pets and smoking are not allowed.

About Harrison Summer

We love our Seabrook Island Retreat and love to share and make memories with our friends and guests! We cherish the low country and visit often through weekend trips and summer vacations with family and friends. The beaches of South Carolina and the Charleston area are especially significant to us because we both graduated from the College of Charleston. Our college tradition continues with our daughter (Hannah) who is a Junior at C of C AND our son Wade will be attending in the Fall of 2017 as well. We adore the charm and grace of old historic Charleston and spent many hours wandering the alleys and streets, enjoying the night life, and admiring the architecture. We enjoy coming down to Seabrook Island every chance we get! We keep our home updated and decorated with casual elegance but you will find it is comfortable and a cozy place to relax.

Why Harrison Summer chose Seabrook Island

Seabrook is a private gated island community. Every effort has been taken to preserve the natural beauty of this low country paradise. We enjoy the centuries old live oaks, the vast salt marsh vistas, and the pristine beaches. Deer, raccoons, foxes, and bobcats are sighted daily here.

What makes this house unique

Seabrook is a wonderful escape. Our cottage is a great place to relax after spending time at the beach or visiting the historical Charleston sights nearby. Spring is our favorite time of year in Charleston. It is also the time of year that many of the homes and gardens in the 'South of Broad' district are open to the public. It is surprising what you'll find while wandering the small side streets between East Bay, Meeting, and King streets. We love the secret gardens and unique architecture of the downtown area. The self paced walking tours with guides that can be purchased from the Borders bookstore on Meeting St are a great way to get to know the history of Charleston. Just find a place to park your car and you can explore for hours. At the end of the day, we eat dinner at one of the many delightful restaurants near the old market. If we wish to escape the downtown crowd, we head back toward the cottage and stop by the Mustard Seed or Athens both on Maybank Hwy on James Island. Or cross over the bridge onto John's Island and eat at The Fat Hen or the Wild Olive!!! This could be the best food local food you will ever eat in South Carolina.

restful getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful week in your beautiful house. We found everything we needed and then some. It was a beautiful and restful time in the midst of the beautiful oaks of Seabrook. Deer came by a few times on our quiet cul de sac. There were lots of personal touches.

Thank you for sharing your little get away with us, it was a joy.

Beautiful home for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beach house. It is a lovely and friendly gated community, conveniently located near the beach. We enjoyed riding bicycles in the evening and searching for seashells on the sandbar during the day. The house has everything you need for a week away from your home. Beautiful and relaxing.

Clean, comfortable, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

What a great find this place is! Very well-decorated to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, Tarpon Pond Cottage has a wonderful screened-in porch that truly made our stay so relaxing. We had unseasonably rainy and cool weather several days of our trip, but sitting on the back porch listening to the rain hit the palm trees while I read a book provided the necessary atmosphere I needed to unwind. It made not getting to go to the beach so much better.

We did get to the wide, unspoiled beach a couple of days and saw dolphins, crabs, sand dollars, and gorgeous sunsets. Riding the bikes around the island was a highlight for our kids (and us!). The beach is about a 4-6 minute drive, depending on which access you choose. You can also ride the bikes and park them in a bike rack at most access points.

There are a few family games, a couple of which we tried, as well an assortment of movies and lots of books. The kitchen is clean and well-appointed. The only thing I would add is pot holders. :) We cooked most of our meals here and the kitchen was amply supplied to do so.

If we return to Seabrook, we would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks, Summer Family, for sharing your special home with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up about the Pot Holders Sandy.. We had some there but I guess its time to get some more. Glad you enjoyed the screen porch in the rain. There is nothing like that sound at Seabrook! Come back anytime! Laura & Harrison

A good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I were looking for a place to have a weekend getaway when we stumbled across this place. It was WONDERFUL! We booked the house months ago and the property owner has been in constant contact with us regarding the stay and any questions we might've had. The house was so clean and we had no issues with anything! The bikes were wonderful and it was nice not having to tote down beach chairs because they were provided! All of the beds were incredibly comfortable and we loved how it slept so many people in a bed, none of us had to sleep on a couch or the floor. Really a wonderful place for a weekend getaway, we will be back!

Super Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned yesterday from Laura & Harrison's beach cottage. It was adorable, decorated perfectly and had everything you need for a beach vacay! I would highly recommend for people with children and teenagers. The house was comfortable and we felt at home. My 4 year old daughter said she missed her beach house. It is minutes to the beach and the bikes were great. Harrison and Laura are great to work with! We will return!

PS this is a great house to stay in if you have a rainy day/week. There is room to spread out.

Thank you so much!

We had a very good time the last weekend of April 2017 on Seabrook Island. Our rental was well kept with all the room you could ask for. I wish we could have stayed longer but we were there for a Wedding Weekend with family and had to return home to work, Yuck!! Well, got to work so you can afford to play. First time on the island so we may return one day to explore uninterrupted. Big thanks to Laura & Harrison Summer for use of their place and wish them the very best.

Thank you,

The Mooneyham's
