Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You are just steps away from the pool and beach when you stay in our beautiful island getaway. Our family retreat has a gorgeous view of the ocean, both from the master bedroom and the private balcony. The kitchen and bathrooms were renovated in fall 2014, with granite countertops and tile floors. The bedrooms have new mattresses, and the sofa bed is very comfortable. The second bedroom has a closet stocked with games and other rainy-day entertainment. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you will need to prepare all your meals, and there is seating in the dining area for 8. Or you may choose to dine on the deck with views of the ocean and pool. The living room has a 40-inch flat-screen television with cable (and a generous DVD lending library).

We have stocked our condo with beach towels, beach chairs, and toys, so all you'll need is your swimsuit! We also provide a car pass to Hunting Island for our guests, so you can explore that beautiful island for free!

Harbor Island is one of the most peaceful locations on the East Coast, and our personal favorite for family vacations. The island is private, gated, and beautifully preserved. When you stay at our condo, you have full access to the Beach Club, with its 3 pools (one Olympic-sized), playground, tennis courts, sand volleyball, and exercise facilities. The beach itself is a beauty to behold. Wildlife is plentiful, with countless varieties of dolphins, birds, crabs, turtles, and so much more. This island is truly a birdwatcher's paradise! Every time we come to this beach we are overwhelmed by its splendor, its sense of peace, and its power to relax the body and spirit. Fresh seafood and a couple of wonderful restaurants are a short bike ride from the island.

Harbor Island itself is very quiet and slow-paced; however, many exciting destinations are a short drive away. Hunting Island State Park is only 1 mile away, with a beautiful beach, miles of forestland, fishing pier with equipment rental, and a lighthouse with breathtaking views. Beaufort, the most charming coastal town in America, is only 15 miles away, Savannah is 45 miles away, and Charleston is 70 miles away. We have enjoyed all these destinations over the years of our visits to Harbor Island.

Not only is Harbor Island the most wonderful place to vacation, but it is also budget-friendly. You will fall in love with Harbor Island, the best-kept secret of the low country, just like we did!

About Julie

We are from Cincinnati, and our parents are from Chattanooga. Together we bought our condo at Harbor Island, and it is one of the smartest, most satisfying things we ever did. We love to vacation there as often as possible, and when we are not there, we love to share it with others.

Julie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Julie chose Low Country & Resort Islands

We love the beauty, history, and mystique of the SC Low Country. Beaufort has been a favorite destination of ours for decades, and when we discovered Harbor Island, we knew it was the place for us.

Great Week of Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Julie and Family for letting us rent out your Condo. We have been doing Family Beach Vacations for the past 5 Years ( Myrtle Beach/Hilton Head Island ), Harbor Island is by far the best laid back atmosphere we have been looking for. Harbor Island will be our Beach Destination from now on. The Condo was better in person than pictures seen online. It was very cleaned/maintained. Thanks again Julie and we are looking forward to many more trips to Harbor Island.

Fantastic Relaxing Month!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Julie and family, for sharing your lovely condo with us. The photos are a true representation of this condo. The two of us spent the month of March relaxing on quiet, peaceful Harbor Island. You furnished your condo with everything we needed for the month. I loved the wonderful framed photographs and prints; they added to the overall feel of being by the ocean. This was our first trip to the South Carolina Low Country, and we loved the area. We had only to drive short distances to find new and interesting areas to explore. We loved Johnson’s Creek Tavern because it was close to the condo and visited it several times. Even though the month was fairly cool, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony looking at the marsh and ocean. We liked walking along the beach, but we were glad we’d been warned to watch for high tide; the beach disappeared! We thank you for the pass to Hunting Island State Park, another marvelous place to walk along the beach. We loved visiting Beaufort to see the South we had only read about. We did have one problem, but the management company had someone out to fix it the same day we reported it. That is fabulous service! Everyone we met was friendly and willing to help us. We recommend this condo for your relaxing vacation!

Enjoyed by three generations!

  • 5 of 5

Grandparents, daughter and grandchildren had a wonderful week in your beautiful condo. We enjoyed the beach, the beautiful view from the balcony, Hunting Island (thanks for the pass!) and touring and shopping in Beaufort. We have stayed in the complex before but your unit was vastly better! The kids say a special thank you for all the beach toys...they built amazing sand towns! We will be back.

Home away from home plus a beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Beaufort and Harbor Island. We loved the condo! It felt like we had come home! But the home there had a beach and pools and Hunting Island and Beaufort. We dined at some great restaurants like Lady's Island Dockside, Johnson Creek Tavern, Steamers, Panini's and Plums plus we cooked fresh seafood from Gay's Fish Co. The décor of the condo was fun and cheerful plus it was comfortable. My husband claimed the recliner! We did have a burner out on the stove and we reported it to the manager and before we knew it maintenance was there to fix it. Since it was late in the season, we took wetsuits and we were able to use the pool comfortably. The beach was fabulous! Our first beach walk we were greeted by a bald eagle! Yes, there really is a bald eagle there as the condo photo shows. We loved having the pass to Hunting Island, using it several times to enjoy the natural beach and its surroundings plus a great lighthouse. Thank you so much for the pass! We were able to go to the Beaufort Fall Home tour which was fabulous! To view those beautiful homes from the outside is fun and impressive but to actually get to see inside these homes was amazing. Thanks to the homeowners for opening their homes! Thanks also to the chefs who provided food for the kitchen tour on Sunday! Delicious! We would love to return to this condo because we felt so comfortable there. We will bring less next time just so we don't have to climb the steps loading and unloading but the condo is so well equipped with games, movies, DVDs, and cooking equipment and supplies that we didn't need to bring as much stuff. Thank you to the owners for sharing their very cheerful condo so that we could have the rest and relaxation we so desperately needed! We love Harbor Island!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful condo and location! We had never been to Harbor Island before and were looking for a quiet spot to take a first vacation as a family of 4 with our 2 young children (3 and 11 months). Harbor Island, and this condo DELIVERED! The weather was perfect for the entire week and we truly enjoyed the opportunity to visit Hunting Island as part of our stay. The beaches were spacious and not crowded; we loved all the wildlife and the amenities. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!
