About Frances Nicholson
We are natives of South Carolina and have always loved the Lowcountry. Harbor Island was an instant attraction to our family as we love the beach and family time together. No need for fancy clothes .... a swimsuit, pj's and a toothbrush and you are good to go! We love how uncrowded the beach is all the time!
Frances Nicholson purchased this House in 1998
Why Frances Nicholson chose Beachwalk
Our home is located on the best part of the beach at Harbor Island and also within walking distance of the pools.
What makes this House unique
Our home is professionally decorated and not your "typical" rental home. Custom made bedding and window treatments throughout the home and you feel like you are part of our family when staying at The Southern Pearl! We have a large family and understand the needs of bringing kids and babies to the beach and strive to make our home a memorable experience for your family of all ages. For older adults that don't like getting out in the sun, the screen porch is ideal for sitting and watching the comings and goings on the beach as well as watching the dolphins. The custom made bed swing is my favorite spot!

A Great Stay
Was in for a week with my family and we had a great stay. House was clean and owner was very helpful with details about the house and the area. We visit Beaufort often but this was our first visit to Harbor Island and we enjoyed it. House is spacious and you can't beat the view as it is right on the beach. Even in the off season you can't beat waking up to that sunrise!
Best ever family beach house!
Hope to return to this well-equipped, comfortable home on a perfect beach. The owners have thought of every need to make your rental extremely enjoyable. Try Southern Pearl. You’ll be happy you did!
The Southern Pearl was the perfect location for my family vacation
Everything was clean, and my host had carefully considered everything that might make the vacation more family friendly.
Perfect family vacation location!
My family had our reunion on this property and enjoyed every moment! The home was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. One thing I appreciated was that it was also full of little courtesies; for example there was a stash of family friendly DVDs and games for evenings and rainy days and a basket of books for those looking for a vacation read. It is very clear that Frances wants you to relax and enjoy your stay.
As lovely as the house was, it was the location that made our stay ideal. We saw dolphins swim by each morning, ate amazing seafood from the nearby restaurants, enjoyed the beautiful homes as we cruised about in our own golf cart, and searched for hermit crabs at low tide. We even found a message in a bottle on our first evening there! I don't think we could have cherry-picked a more beautiful location or a better property from which to enjoy it. Thanks, Frances, for allowing us to borrow your Southern Pearl.
Beautiful house! Clean, comfortable, and well cared for.
This home is clearly loved by its owners. Not always the case, so it is refreshing to visit someplace that is appropriately cared for. We'll be back!
Hunting Island State Park is located just 2 miles from Harbor and is open to the public. They have a nature center and lighthouse you can climb.
