About The Owner

I am a school teacher at a local high school and my husband is a soccer instructor. We met in Beijing, China five years ago and were married two years later. We moved back to the States (and lived at Harbor) until our one year old started walking. We love this area and are happy to own a condo here!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Saint Helena Island

I grew up in Beaufort and have always loved Harbor. When this condo came available, I couldn't resist! My husband and I lived in the condo until our daughter was almost one years old. This condo is a very special place for us and we are happy to be able to share it.

What makes this condo unique

There are so many beautiful walks and bike rides to take here. It's quiet, peaceful and kid friendly. Also, the people who rent here are kind and you often see them return year after year. Many of our friends here are renters at Harbor during various times of year! It's just great.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I and our standard poodle, Yoda returned from Lillian's condo. just last month, and are already dreaming about NEXT year! We had such a great time what with walking the almost-deserted beach, talking with bee friendly people, and the great weather!! We have always camped on Hunting Island, and since selling our motor home kept getting the call to return to the Low Country. Lillian was a dream to deal with, and looked after our every need, including great cable reception to watch our beloved hockey playoffs. Being from Canada, we had to deal with many things and Lillian was terrific I meeting my all too many questions. The condo was very clean, and met our every need, close to the beach, tennis, and the FRESH shrimp market just down the road. If you want a great relaxing place to go I'd totally recommend this condo (just don't book it when we go!!). Thanks Lillian; we're looking forward to next year already!!

Wonderful visit!

We rented this condo for a last minute trip to Harbor Island to meet up with friends, and it was perfect for the occasion.

Pro: condo was clean. Cons: The condo was outdated, which isn't depicted in photos. The TV makes a very loud buzzing noise if you turn it to an audible volume. Owners personal effects are under bathroom cabinets, and in bedroom closet. The island had extensive remaining damage from Hurricane Matthew last fall. The homes on one end of the island had sides falling off, porches falling off, houses falling apart into the ocean. Lots of debris still on that end of the island. Did not make for scenic beach walks. A very sad feeling when driving and walking around the island- not a relaxing and enjoyable time. There is considerable construction in the condo complex (parking lot torn up in many areas, loud, unsightly) Would have been appropriate to receive a disclaimer about the damage and construction remaining, from the owner prior to arrival.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you felt disappointed in your stay. We work very hard to keep our place comfortable and affordable. Nothing has changed in our condo since pictures were taken. Everything in closet is there for renters - pac-n-play, baby seat, blankets, etc. Nothing of our own. As for the construction, we can't help the timing of others on the island. Some still have not had the help they were promised from insurance. We did write a disclaimer to our first renters in April and they responded saying no one would expect any different considering we were hit badly by a hurricane. I removed it afterwards but can put it back. It takes a long time to get an island up and back to normal after a catastrophe like that. Again, I am sorry you had a disappointing time. The reviews we normally receive are great and it saddens me to know it wasn't great for you too.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very comfortable and relaxing. It was just what I needed in getting away from a stressful job. We have stayed at Harbor Island for the last few years and found this unit was a good choice. Our children are adults now so I don't have to be poolside. Our son did join us for a few days, but we weren't cramped or crowded. I loved the rocking chair on the back deck. I spent quite a few hours drinking coffee there. I hope to be able to come back next year.
