Harbor Island, 14 miles east of highly acclaimed Beaufort, SC., is a protected estuary habitat filled with wildlife and beautiful plant life. It is part of the 350,000-acre ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve (ACE Basin NERR), created and managed by the Marine Resources Division of South Carolina. The private island sits on the edge of the biologically rich Saint Helena's Sound. In this habitat, you will be surrounded by live oaks, slash pines, and cabbage palmettos.
The ACE Basin Refuge lies along the Atlantic Flyway - the 'bird highway in the sky.' Numerous waterfowl, shore birds, neo-tropical songbirds and birds of prey migrate from their nesting grounds to wintering areas throughout eastern North America.
The painted bunting, egrets and herons are in abundance here. Many endangered species such as the peregrine falcon, Canby's dropwort, chaffseed, hawksbill turtle, leatherback turtle, red-cockaded woodpecker, shortnose sturgeon, West Indian manatee, and wood stork live in the ACE Basin. Six, federally-threatened species (i.e. bald eagle, Eastern indigo snake, green turtle, American alligator, loggerhead turtle, and piping plover) have also been observed in the area.
Ocean Wildlife - The ocean is teeming with wildlife - American oysters, blue crabs, fiddler crabs, grass shrimps, hard clams, white shrimps, living sand dollars, horseshoe crabs, and porpoise, according to the National Estuarine Research Reserve.
At certain times of the year, you will share the ocean water with glowing green phosphorescent plankton or loggerhead sea turtles. (Don't forget to Help Save Our Turtles - lights off on the beach at night between May 1 and September 1). A sighting of a leatherback turtle, the largest living turtle species, occurred last year on Hunting Island, the next island over.
Fishing - If you are interested in fishing - the 1120-foot, former Paradise Pier is now part of Hunting Island State Park, the last island boundary in the ACE Basin chain. Fishermen have tried their luck and caught Atlantic croaker, bay anchovy, black drum, largemouth bass, red drum, shortnose sturgeon, Southern flounder, spot, spotted sea trout, striped bass, and striped mullet.
***Nearby Hunting Island***
Local Attractions Hunting Island is home to the historic Hunting Island lighthouse that was in operation until 1933. Originally constructed in 1859 and rebuilt in 1875 after the Civil War, 167 steps and 50 cents will take you to the top for a fabulous view. It is only two miles away from our unit.
Time to go out on the town? Beaufort provides a delightful backdrop. First inhabited by native Americans and then the Spanish in the 1500s, historical areas are every where. Antebellum homes from before the Civil War border the waterfront as do great restaurants and a small park and marina. Beaufort also hosts a thriving artists community and it is only 14 miles away! An hour or so drive will take you to Savannah or Charleston, beautiful southern cities that make great day trips.
Stop at Publix on your way out of Beaufort. It is on the left after you cross Lady's Island bridge over the intercoastal waterway once you go through downtown Beaufort on Route 21. Or, stop at Gay's Seafood (on the right) before you cross the Harbor River Bridge across from the famous (featured in Coastal Living) Shrimp Shack.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: Several years ago when I purchased the condo on Harbor Island, I made the decision to make it pet-friendly. We provide dog/cat beds, food bowls, and encourage guests to leave pictures behind on our 'pet board'. Some of my friends and business advisors said I was crazy to allow pets because they would ruin the unit. Well, the exact opposite has happened. People that can't imagine going away without their pets and have chosen L206 have been the most pleasant guests I've ever experienced. The cute pictures left behind and the notes about how much their 4-legged friends enjoyed the beach are priceless. Thanks for visiting!
Why Saint Helena Island, SC, USA:
Harbor Island is one of the last places on earth where you can roam the beach and not encounter any others - well, maybe several starfish, great shore birds, and dolphins swimming along with you as you're walking. I also love the fact that Harbor Island is a reserve for sea turtles and other endangered species.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
L-206 has one of the best ocean views of any condo on Harbor Island. Located a few steps away from the elevator, there's no need to lug heavy bags up and down the steps. If you cook, you'll appreciate the new kitchen appliances and high end pots and pans. The pillow top mattress on the queen size bed is incredibly comfortable and the towels are big and fluffy. Finally, we provide a free annual pass for Hunting Island, saving you the daily entry fee. Enjoy!
