Property description

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!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: 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.

Why Saint Helena Island, SC, USA:
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.
