About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Welcome to The Haven! Offering double master suites, this large Pelican Point duplex home is a popular vacation choice because of its privacy, spaciousness, high quality upscale furnishings, and stunning views. Shaped by wind and water, the southern end of Harbor Island is constantly changing vista of sea and sand, marsh and creek, sky and light. Here, the tidal waters of Johnson’s Creek flow to the Atlantic to create this very private, quiet, natural, area of the Island with a view over the marsh to Johnson’s Creek, Hunting Island, and beyond to the beautiful Atlantic. The tidal marsh here is a favorite fishing ground for dolphin, herons, egrets, and other shore birds. As the second to last home in Pelican Point, on the southern end of Harbor Island, this location is very much a “get away from it all” spot providing a romantic setting or a relaxing family atmosphere where you can reconnect with the kids. And every room offers a beautiful low country view! Panoramic ocean-oriented views can be enjoyed from the living area, dining area, screened porch, rear main floor master, and rear upstairs guest bedroom while the other two bedrooms enjoy views of an expansive tidal marsh at the front of the home. The screened porch is a lovely space to enjoy the fresh air and stunning ocean views. A bistro table with chairs, and two arm chairs, all with comfortable seat cushions, and an antique country bench offer seating options. Several hooks are provided for drying beach towels. The front porch overlooks a tidal marsh and is a great spot for relaxing on the swing or in one of the rocking chairs, to watch the changing marsh scene with its abundant bird life, or catch the sun going down for the day. Rediscover the beauty of Harbor’s night sky. Explore the stars from porch and yard. A telescope on tripod is provided for enjoying the night sky as well as our coastal birds. The Haven is exceptionally well furnished and appointed and comes complete with books and games to make your coastal retreat complete. A high-end HVAC system provides central air and heat with humidifier and air cleaner to enhance your comfort. The baths were completely remodeled in 2015 and 2017 updates include a completely new kitchen and an open concept kitchen/dining/living area, new flooring and paint throughout, new king beds, new area rugs, new high end living area furniture, lighting, accessories, and bedding! The Haven conveniently offers two master bedroom suites on the main floor, and two additional bedrooms on the second floor. Sleeping a total of eight, both main floor master bedrooms have king beds, both upstairs bedrooms offer queen four poster beds made by craftsmen in the owners’ home county. There is also an LL Bean portable Easy Cot to expand sleeping options. The cot is 17' high x 30' wide x 79' long and can accommodate up to 330 pounds. On the main floor, the ocean side master offers gorgeous views over the marsh to the Atlantic, and opens into the ocean view screened porch off of the living area. This master bedroom features a completely renovated private bath with an oversized walk-in shower. The second master bedroom is at the front of the home with views of another beautiful tidal marsh. The remodeled bath for the second master offers a new tub/shower combination. A strategically placed pocket door allows you to close off this bath and bedroom to form a master suite, or if you prefer you can leave the pocket door open allowing general access to that bath. The second floor offers a full guest bath, and two large bedrooms. Each of the upstairs bedrooms provides a beautiful view. The rear bedroom directly faces the ocean and the ocean marsh. The second upstairs bedroom is oriented toward the ever changing tidal marsh at the front of The Haven. Each features a comfy arm chair nestled beneath large windows. The second floor guest bath offers a tub/shower combination. The spacious living area is complete with a new 42” LCD flat screen TV. A high speed wireless Internet connection is included with your rental. The brand new kitchen features high end appliances and custom cabinetry, and includes practical but fun items like a waffle maker and a slow cooker. Tableware--both patterned and white, along with cloth napkins and coordinating bake/serve dishes, will accentuate the great meals you'll enjoy cooking in this kitchen. Kitchenware includes a nice big pot for boiling or steaming and a dozen Lowcountry cookbooks for inspiration. For your enjoyment and comfort, The Haven also provides a Char-broil propane gas grill and an outdoor hot/cold shower. Your reservations include use of our “crab gear”: crab lines and weights, dip net, tongs (crabs are indeed crabby, and love to pinch!) and a sturdy bucket to carry home your catch. And your rental includes full access to the Harbor Island Beach & Racquet Club where you will find an Olympic sized pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River, a kiddie wading pool, a sand volleyball court, tennis court, small sundries shop, fitness center and more. And Harbor Island is a perfect home base for exploring the Gullah Geechee culture of St Helena and the sea islands. Whether you're Visiting the Penn Center where Martin Luther King Jr retreated to dream & plan and Pat Conroy chose to be buried, kayaking streams and rivers, exploring live oak bordered rural roads - paved & dirt, casting a shrimp net, shopping and eating in Frogmore village, or walking the marsh-edged beach at your back door, you're playing and learning in the heart of the Gullah Geechee corridor. This property offers you a unique vacation experience, we will be happy to help with your plans for this special place.

Harbor Island is a great place for nature watching. Dolphin are frequently seen off our shores, egrets and herons nest in our rookeries and alligators prowl the impounded lagoons. The entire island is an Audubon Designated Important Bird Area: more than 170 different kinds of birds either live here or migrate through our island every year! Harbor Island is a gated beach community with almost three miles of natural beaches. You will have access to the Beach and Racquet Club tennis courts, fitness center, and swimming pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River. There is also a kiddie pool and a playground for the children. You may never want to leave the island, but if you would like to see the sights, just 14 miles away is beautiful, historic Beaufort. Located on the Intracoastal Waterway, Beaufort offers a wide variety of restaurants, art galleries and shops, historic tours and horse drawn carriage rides through streets lined with antebellum homes and graceful live oaks. The waterfront park downtown is a must-see. Harbor Island is ideally situated for day trips: a little over an hour from Savannah and Savannah International Airport, one hour from Hilton Head Island and Hilton Head Airport, and approximately two hours from historic Charleston.
