Our family fell in love with Harbor Island day one. Then, we found the perfect beach home on Ocean Marsh. You get all of the scenery and feel of the beach with the tropical feel of palm trees, ferns, and moss covered trees. We vacations at our beach home often. We have family gathering, golf weekends, fishing contests, wildlife viewing, and fun nights gazing at the unbelievable number of stars as we wind down the day on the second floor deck.
if you are looking for a place to reconnect as a family, experience the low country, have a great mix of beach time, nature walks, sunsets, and great food and shopping destinations. Harbor Island is the place to be!
A gated and secure vacation destination with tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, great pool and work out facility.

Great August Retreat
We stayed at this cozy, well designed home in the low country for an end of summer family vacation. It was a relaxing location with expansive views of a tidal marsh which offered changing views of tides, birds, sunrises and gorgeous light. We spent a lot of time on the deck reading and soaking in the views. The golf cart was so much fun to cruise about the island and get to the beach. A day trip to Savannah GA was lovely with brunch at The Collins Quarter. We always visit Athenian Gardens in Beaufort SC too - excellent Greek food. We love the low country and this was an ideal location to experience it. Loved how the house is nestled in a forest with lots of privacy. It was fun seeing shrimp boats fishing near the beach from the place we purchased our seafood: Sea Eagle Market at Village Creek. The property manager was outstanding and prompt with questions. Owners provided detailed instructions and information on the area. SC truly is a place with smiling faces beautiful places. We planned our trip around the Total Eclipse which we watched in awe from the beach. A quiet peaceful place.
Perfectly peaceful retreat!
We so enjoyed our stay at Harbor Island in this lovely and comfortable home. Beautiful views, lush surroundings and near solitude all went into making this such a memorable getaway for all of our family members. The house is equipped with everything that you may need and has generously large rooms. Thank you again for sharing your home with us, we look forward to staying again in the future!
Excellent stay for the price
This was our first outing to South Carolina. We left Indiana early on a Saturday and drove down. The instructions I received via email were on point. We had no issues checking in with the guard shack and getting our pass. The flora and fauna on the drive down Ocean Marsh Lane are breathtaking. The key was in the lockbox and the house was very clean. There's a deck out back that overlooks a marsh between the house and the beach. I spent a good amount of time out there, especially early in the mornings. There is a screened in portion of the deck off the master bedroom when the bugs get bad in the evenings. Even on the open part they're nothing that spray won't take care of. There are numerous beach access points just a quick golf cart ride away, 6 or 7. There's also quite a bit of local restaurants that are very good including Boondocks, MJs Soulfood, Tienda Mexicana La Moreliana, all excellent. We also hit Gay's Fish Company, an awesome seafood market. We got flounder, mahi mahi, and shrimp. The house was well stocked with spices, etc plus everything you need to cook. We paid it forward and left old bay, zatarans shrimp boil, and a shrimp peeler/de-veiner. The golf cart worked great, just remember to keep the charge topped off. All the locals were extremely friendly, and there are awesome spots to watch birds and alligators. We stayed in Waveland Mississippi last year for a comparable price and it didn't touch this place. I wish I could live down there. Beautiful country, awesome beaches and wonderful people. We plan on coming back next year.
Beautiful serene location.
This property is perfect design for either a couple or a family! We love the open concept, bright living space, windows and doors facing the marsh and ocean beyond. Golf cart for going to beach or pool! It is quite a trip to the grocery store, but very close to Johnson Tavern and grill, and also other restaurants near...Foolish Frog (awesome), Gullah Grub, Boondocks, etc. we loved the quaint and historic Beaufort....about 14 miles away. We also enjoyed riding bicycles on on the side roads between Harbor Island and Beaufort! I will also mention how great it is to have local produce from nearby vegetable farms! We were disappointed that Hunting Island was closed...recovering from Hurricane Matthew... but rumored to reopen Memmorial weekend. Great experience and extremely secure location with it being a gated community!
A wonderful vacation !
We just returned home from spending a month at your beautiful home. The location was wonderful, we enjoyed so many beautiful sunrises from the deck and the lush greenery around the house. The beach is beautiful and we spent many hours walking and enjoying the scenery . Everyone we met was so friendly and the location of your home made it very easy to go sightseeing and enjoy Beaufort , Savannah and so many other places. The area restaurants were great and we loved the availability of great fresh seafood.
We had a wonderful vacation and have reserved the house for next February. Also our dog loved his rides to the beach in the golf cart !
