Close to historic Beaufort (the country's Happiest Small Town, according to a 2013 Coastal Living Magazine poll) and it's unique shops, excellent restaurants and wonderful sights, there are plenty of things to do and see. If you don't want to go into town, you can spend your time on island strolling on the beach, catching hermit crabs, finding sand dollars, relaxing with a good book on the deck, working out in the Clubhouse gym, swimming in one of three pools, or lazing on the couch and watching cable TV.

Harbor Island is a small gated community located near Hunting Island State Park and Fripp Island. The island is surrounded by the ocean and Saint Helena Sound. The area has great recreation with several beautiful golf courses nearby and plentiful fishing, crabbing, and shrimping.

About Sheila Bennett

You won't find any camels on Harbor Island, but there are lots of other things to keep you entertained!

Sheila Bennett purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sheila Bennett chose Saint Helena Island

Harbor Island is like no other place I've ever been to. It's quiet, beautiful, and oh so relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located on the second floor, but there is an elevator available. Since it is an end unit, you'll enjoy plenty of sunlight and ocean breezes throughout the rooms. Washers and dryers are available on each floor. The beach is a 5 minute walk and one pool is a 3 minute walk from the condo.

Just like the title

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for a week this past August and had an incredibly restful time. I found the condo just perfect, very well displayed and furnished.

The access to the beach is right at the foot of the building.

I needed to re-energize after a long period of exhaustion and ordeals -disease, passing of a loved one, divorce- and my stay helped me reconnect with my aliveness.

This condo has it all!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect. We went with our toddler son and only left Harbor Island twice. We were able to cook every meal in the condo (including Frogmore stew and fresh crabs that we caught on the dock) as it is fully stocked. The amenities in Harbor Island are wonderful! The condo is clean and convenient. The owner, Elaine is great! We will be back!

We wanted for nothing while we were guests. The owner is easy to work with and is incredibly helpful. The condo is clean, comfortable and lovely. And Harbor Island is our favorite getaway.

A wonderful time in a great space

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first trip to Harbor Island and we had an amazing time - thanks in no small part to Elaine's condo. The space was beautiful, well-appointed, and the perfect home base for our trip. Elaine was incredibly communicative and helpful throughout, and you can see the care she put into making the condo comfortable and homey. For the cooks out there, the kitchen had everything you could need (so you don't have to go overboard packing like I did!). Thanks for everything! We will be back :)
