About Callie Cambridge

We started our journey together so many years ago in the Army with a chance meeting during flag ceremony detail. Now, with 3 grown children, all moved on and just one little man left at home we leaped on the opportunity to make our dreams of owing a beach house come true.

Being military, we have traveled a vast majority of our lives together to experience new adventures and take challenging paths, but one thing always remained the same. Our love for the Carolina beaches. From Kure Beach to Hunting Island and everywhere in between, we knew that we wanted to have a place of our own, where we can all come together to relax and enjoy the family time we have and the memories that are always made at the beach.

Callie Cambridge purchased this house in 2016

Why Callie Cambridge chose Beachwalk

We have an extensive family here in the low country and have vacationed every year here to enjoy the beach on Hunting Island and Beaufort's annual water festival. So, when we decided that it was time to buy, we searched high and low for just the right home. When we found Palmetto Digs we knew that it would be our most prized possession.

The first few weeks we owned Palmetto Digs we were able to totally give her a refresh. A nice little mini face lift which included, a nice deep clean, fresh paint throughout, new furniture and linens.

It was all worth it when the whole family showed up to celebrate Memorial Day with us on the beach. It may have been raining the whole weekend, but throughout the house all you could hear and feel was the warmth and excitement of the beginning of new family traditions.

What makes this house unique

This home is not furnished as a rental. This home is furnished as a part of us and our home. It is meant to be used and loved by all to enjoy relaxing days and nights making memories with those you love the dearest.

The house is in a gated beach community, safe for the entire family. You can enjoy riding bikes and taking the golf cart out for a nice ride along the quiet streets. The beach is a 200 yards walk from the house, and has beautiful morning sunrises, calm waves and soft sand. The pool is a short golf cart ride and sports tennis courts, basketball courts, sand volleyball and a toddler pool and play area. You can enjoy the birds singing their songs, the sunset and the inviting breeze off the water inlet from the back deck in the evenings. An all around beautiful and relaxing getaway for everyone in the family.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Palmetto Digs 7/25-7/31. It was a wonderful and relaxing week the entire stay. The beach is a super short distance of walk (or golf cart ride if needed) and the pool is a short golf cart ride or car ride. Be sure to take note when booking - you are only allotted 3 vehicle passes during your stay. The pool was a great size. The only part we didn't care for - if your child was in a swim diaper, they could not access the big pool with you, they have to remain in the kiddie pool. The only other issue we ran into were being bitten by the sand gnats. Highly recommend bug spray in addition to your sunscreen while on the beach. Not sure if they were lively at the time of our stay with the addition of raining off and on. We cannot recommend anything to do off the island because we honestly didn't leave besides going to the grocery store (about 15-18 minutes away). The Cambridge's made every amenity available during our stay within the home and it was perfect. Thank you again!

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that we expected. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, and house was beautiful. I especially loved the sitting area as we had enough room to spread out, read, watch TV and take naps. The only thing I could possibly say the least bit negative was the TV was a little more difficult to use but detailed instructions were provided so we figured it out.

Harbor Island
Car: necessary

Harbor Island is a two and a half square mile residential community in the South Carolina’s Lowcountry.(near Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston) It is a community located on an island blessed with great natural beauty. Ours is the only beach community in South Carolina where as soon as you walk out your door and you are in the midst of a natural setting.

As the gateway to the Beaufort Barrier Islands Important Bird Area, during the course of a year you may find over 200 species of birds. Five fresh water lagoons provide nesting areas for thousands of wading birds and our sandbars host nests for several threatened species.

In spring and fall our island is a staging area for thousands of birds gathering for their migratory flights. From April to June thousands of Horseshoe crabs come ashore to lay their eggs at high tide under a full moon. These eggs provide much needed food for birds during spring migration. From May to September our beach is a nesting site for endangered Loggerhead turtles.

While Harbor Island is a prime spot for nature lovers, our 2-½ miles of pristine beach and our swimming pools, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts offer opportunities for traditional activities. Water sports of all kinds are available. Fishing off the beach and crabbing in our tidal creeks or from the crabbing dock are very popular.

Nearby restaurants prepare local seafood fresh from the boats you see in Saint Helena Sound off our beach. Several local shops provide basic food items, rent kayaks, sell pizza and souvenirs. Harbor Island is located midway between the historic cities of Charleston and Savannah. We are 14 miles east of the picturesque coastal town of Beaufort.
