About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1 - 2)

Hurricane Matthew is history and we're ok. And, Hunting Island is opening May 26th!

Maximum occupancy is 2 Adults. No children.

Beach Chairs provided (2).

Harbor Island is a private barrier island 15 miles east of Beaufort, SC. Our gated community features a 2.5 mile sandy beach and 24/7 security.

Harbor Island is a wonderful place to observe nature. Native and migrating birds can be found on our island depending on the season. We have an active loggerhead turtle protection program. Volunteers assist throughout the summer and early fall as baby turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean.

Harbor Island has lots of outdoor activities, i.e. fishing, crabbing, ‘shrimping’ or boating. For those who prefer freshwater activities, the BRC (Beach & Racquet Club) offers a large and a kiddy pool, a souvenir and snack shop, and a beach volleyball area. In addition, we have tennis, basketball and shuffleboard courts.

The fitness center at the BRC features a weight room, treadmills, and stationary bicycles. Check with the BRC for bike rentals and questions about any of the activities listed above.

Our 3rd floor (top floor) home is accessible by elevator and is uniquely positioned for viewing brilliant sunrises and spectacular sunsets. Our 'Sunset Lounge', located just outside our front door, features a 3rd floor outdoor living/viewing area that no other unit offers.

The sole bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and full bath. Another half bath is just steps down the hall.

You'll love the comfortable feel of our home. Snuggle up with a book in the corner chaise or spend an afternoon at one of three nearby pools or our not-so-crowded beach.

Smoking is not allowed in our home.

Pets are not allowed.

All rentals will incur the mandatory Harbor Island Gate Fee which costs varies depending on the length or your stay.

About Mary Ann

We are both retired and live in upstate SC.

Mary Ann purchased this villa in 2002

Why Mary Ann chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Our home is exactly what you want it to be: comfortable, quiet, romantic, the list is yours to choose from. It's close to great beaches and golf courses and just in between Charleston and Savannah. Harbor is truly a community for people who love the beach.

Although there are no golf courses on our island, you'll find plenty to do. We have bike rentals, tennis courts, a gym, three pools, sunrises, sunsets, and peace and quiet. Design your own vacation. But, make sure you come back for another visit.

What makes this villa unique

We love Harbor's beach and it changes from season to season. In spite of the changes, one thing will remain. There's always a large sandbar that goes off into the east that will allow you to walk so far off shore that you can look back and see the Hunting Island lighthouse.

If you, like us, are golfers, you've got the courses at Fripp Island that are just 10 minutes away. We like the public course at Parris Island. It's a real treat to visit the island for golf as well as to visit the Marine Corp Museum.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lots of rest and relaxation on this week at Harbor, some much needed time for walks on the beach, napping and reading! We recommend Moondoggies in Port Royal!"

Good place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Harbor Island. This was the first time we went on vacation without our kids, although they texted and called everyday. The condo we stayed in was so nice and really made you feel at home. It was nice to wake up in the morning and sit out on the patio and see the ocean. I recommend this place to anyone looking for beachfront property for vacation.

Lovely View

  • 3 of 5

The view of the ocean from this condo was wonderful! We enjoyed being able to see the beach from the living room! The condo was also very clean and accommodating. From the pictures on VRBO, I expected it to be a bit more updated, particularly in the kitchen, but all was perfectly adequate for a few days away! The owner provided great customer service and helpful tips including a binder of recommendations and information in the condo itself. We were a bit disappointed as we had looked forward to spending time on the screen porch overlooking the ocean, but the screen porch had obviously been used as a smoking porch. The rest of the condo was fine, but as non-smokers and very sensitive to smoke, there was a noticeable smoke smell on the porch. We enjoyed walking on the beach and the many wonderful restaurants in Beaufort and Port Royal.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of our home. I would like to address your comments about the screen porch and the smell of cigarette smoke. I'm sorry you had to deal with the smoke as I'm an ex-smoker myself and understand the irritating nature of the smoke. I believe that any smell of smoke you detected was from a neighboring screen porch active smoker(s). It is not uncommon to be on the porch with smoke coming from neighboring porches. We are here now and there is no smell of smoke on our porch. I hope this will not deter you from visiting with us again. Returning clients get a 5% discount on their room rate. Best regards, Mary Ann

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very clean and comfortable, even better than we expected. We were there for the month of February 2016. Had some very cool days (didn't stop us from walking on the beach) and some days in the low 70's. Enjoyed the quiet beach and area. Even had our own dolphin shows. Went to Hunting Island twice and saw an alligator catch her dinner in the pond by the visitors' center. She had a vulture waiting for any leftovers. There were several restaurants that we went to in Beaufort that were very good especially Dockside and the Mexican restaurant in the mall by Walmart. Also visited Parris Island where the new Marine recruits train. Also explored nearby beaches. Great place to vacation!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay in this condo and I guess that tells you we love it!! We walked on the Harbor Island Beach, went for a afternoon cruise on Captain Dick's River Cruise that docks at the Downtown Marina in Beaufort (very nice and informative cruise), ate at Dockside on Lady's Island, Luther's in Beaufort and went to Hunting Island Beach. Our cousins, who live on St. Helena's Island, got fresh shrimp from Gay Fish Company and made an authentic Frogmore Stew...yum!! We visited with our relatives and celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here.

Mary Ann is so sweet...we had to made a change in dates, due to the rain & flooding earlier in October and she was very nice and more than cooperative, making sure we had a wonderful vacation!! Can't wait to return to this beautiful island!

Relaxing time away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week of water, bike riding and rest while staying at Bill and Mary Ann's. It's a quiet neighborhood and convenient to several restaurants. The condo was clean, bright and very cozy and we look forward to returning.
