About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2½ Bathrooms (Sleeps 4) Non-Smoking

Flip flops, sand between your toes and sun in your eyes. Just like 'The Good Ole Days': quiet, no crowds and no traffic. Leave your worries behind, take off that tie, work boots, or high heels and turn off that cell phone too. You won't need them here. But, if you must get online there is free WiFi. Our condo is perfect for relaxing and well equipped. So kick back, put your feet up and relax. Have a glass of wine, a cold beer or some sweet tea on our beach front deck and enjoy the panoramic ocean view. Go to bed at night with the windows open and hear the waves splashing on the beach, then wake up to the most beautiful sunrises anywhere then go for an early beach walk with your coffee and look for turtle tracks. What a way to start the morning!

There's lots to do. Fishing, shrimping, crabbing, shelling and swimming at one of the pools at either end of the building or the Olympic size pool and a children's pool at the Beach and Racquet Club just a couple minutes walk away. The four pools are open April 1 through October 31. The Beach and Racquet club also has a gym you can use, a playground for kids and bikes for rent. Don't forget to bring the beach towels and toys!

There's nature galore; nesting birds, gators (don't feed them!) ghost crabs at dusk, seagulls flying low just waiting for some bread crumbs and even a pair of Osprey's nesting near the crabbing dock. For even more nature visit Hunting Island State Park, it's just across the river.

There's so much to do and so little time. So make the best of every minute and enjoy!

Our condo has a well equipped contemporary kitchen with a breakfast bar. During the renovation the first floor was changed to an open floor plan. There is a dinning area, family room area and powder room downstairs too. The second floor has two bedrooms each with its own full bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed, huge eight foot wide window overlooking the ocean and a shower that has two shower heads, one of which is a rainfall shower head. The second bedroom has two twin size beds and a combined bathtub and shower. There are flat screen TVs and BluRay players in the family room and each bedroom. Free WiFi just for our guests. Free calling to the 50 states, which is important because cell phone coverage is spotty. There is a washer and dryer in the condo too.

Our condo is strictly non-smoking. We respectfully request that if anyone in your group smokes that you do not rent our condo. Maximum occupancy including all children and infants is four, groups larger than four are not accepted. This is not a commercial property but is our personal condo and we stay there frequently.

About Pete

We live in Ohio. The property manager for our condo, Harbor Island Rentals, is just a block down the road from the gate to Harbor Island to make sure your stay is just as wonderful as if we lived in Beaufort. Pete & Elena

Pete purchased this condo in 2012

Why Pete chose Saint Helena Island

Oceanfront on a stunning 2+ mile long beach in a private gated community with on-site 24/7 security. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life but not far from many places to go, things to see and do and excellent restaurants.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Harbor Island was spectacular! The decor was beautiful and the kitchen was fully stocked. We loved the seclusion of the beach. I loved watching the sunrise from my bedroom every morning. I would definitely recommend this condo to others. Our only recommendation is a more comfortable chairs on balcony. A small table with four chairs would be nice to dine alfresco.

This condo is our favorite! Every time we visit Harbor Island, we rent this condo.

It is just the right size for our family of four.

The master shower has two shower heads and a seat bench.

The kitchen is equipped with all necessary items to create a beautiful meal.

The deck overlooks the ocean. It is perfect for drinking your morning coffee, and allows plenty of room for yoga in the morning.

We are looking forward to staying in this beautiful condo for our next South Carolina visit!

Harbor Island Unit K-208

  • 5 of 5

Unit K-208 is well appointed and even more beautiful in person than the photos can show. The home is wonderfully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a visit to Harbor Island. The owners easily make you feel welcomed and at home.

I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone who wishes to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets of Harbor Island SC

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed in a condo before and weren't sure what to expect. This condo was fantastic - it was completely renovated/modern and had every amenity. It has a great ocean view and had a perfect location for a family with two young kids: right between the beach and the swimming pool.

The pictures are spot on - it is truly as nice as it looks. Plus the kitchen is fully stocked with utensils.

Charming & Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a sanctuary for our family. The condo was well decorated & situated that it made us feel as if we were in a beach house, not a condo. The sunrise view from the master bedroom upstairs is fantastic & you have the same view from the living area. The photos you see will capture you as your are browsing the internet and seeing it in person is all the better. We had many homemade meals inside the condo and found that all supplies needed for preparations were available - a home away from home. We were there in April of 2015 and had a blast. It was a concern of mine that going in April would limit our fun, but it didn't. We drove to Beaufort for dining, coffee, art, and a few tours. It was a highlight for my 5-year-old to get up every morning and see what the ocean had swept up on the shore. Another highlight, as you are walking toward the playground and are on the road, you will find a bridge-like, wooden fence; just peer over the top and you will find alligators sunning on the embankment. YIKES! It was cool. Pete and Elena welcomed us with a lovely gift basket and a bottle of wine. It was a great start to our vacation. My little one still talks about our stay in the "beach house" and ask when we are going back. This beach getaway is charming and will definitely enhance your family memories. Enjoy!

Harbor Island is a special place. It is NOT a place to find crowds, noise or traffic. It IS the place for a wonderfully quiet beach vacation. In a glorious natural setting, our island is perhaps the best kept secret on the East coast. This is a private, gated community with 24 hour security and a friendly place where people say hello and wave at you from their cars. The beautiful beach is never crowded.
