About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The best beachfront value on the East Coast! This Pelican Point Villa is perfect for a quiet get-away or a family gathering on the beach. The four-bedroom, three-bath, 2000 sf house sleeps ten in two King beds, one Queen bed, two Twin beds, and a pull-out Queen sofa bed. Fully appointed kitchen, washer and dryer, parking underneath house, fireplace, and outdoor shower. The gourmet kitchen was completely renovated in 2008 and comes equipped with everything you'll need. All bathrooms have been recently renovated.

This home comes complete with high chair and pack-n-play, beach chairs, toys, all linens, three TVs with VCRs, a stereo, and free wireless internet. Each rental includes one vehicle pass and full use of the Beach and Racquet Club (an Olympic-size pool, kiddie pool, fitness center, tennis courts, playground, sand volleyball, and basketball).

Pelican Point is just one row wide, so the screened porch faces the ocean for gorgeous sunrises and the open porch faces the marsh for colorful sunsets. Just outside the front door is a boardwalk that leads to a private, uncrowded beach stretching for two and a half miles. Harbor Island is next door to Hunting Island State Park and within a short drive of historic Beaufort and Parris Island. Charleston and Savannah are close enough for day trips.

About Fran Nolan

I live on the island about 3/4 mile from the property and am able to deal immediately with any problems. I know the area well, having owned here since 1998, and can offer suggestions.

Easter at Harbor Island--Magical

  • 5 of 5

We met our grown sons at this amazing property and celebrated the holiday. Not only was it magical to share it with our sons and our best friend chocolate lab Yikes, but Fran went over and above to make this stay perfect.

The property was clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. I would not hesitate renting this property again in the future. Fran provided a snack for our dog and some treats for us as well.

Great Vacation for the Family

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular place for a family vacation! The property didn't feel like a felt like home and had more than enough room for our family of 6 adults and one baby. It was equipped with everything we could need for the home and the beach (beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, pack-n-play for the baby, high chair) was really just fabulous! We spent a ton of time on the screened in porch playing games and just laughing. And our gracious host even had some cool treats waiting for us and our pups! I highly recommend this rental for anyone looking for a relaxing family beach vacation.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Pelican Point on Harbor Island. Five adults and two grandchildren (ages 3 and 5) and a "granddog" all had a marvelous time. The property is great, and Fran has thought of every little detail. Literally, bring clothes and perishables; you will want for nothing!! Kitchen is well-equipped, the pantry is fully stocked, beach chairs and towels (and toys) are all there for your convenience. GMommy (aka nana) LOVED that the beach was not crowded, even in mid-July. Hope all our busy schedules will allow us another week there next summer!!

Great for relaxing with the family

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Ms. Fran. First of all, you will not find anyone better to rent from. She quickly responds to all emails and very helpful with any questions you may have. The home was clean and very well equipped. You literally only need to bring your clothes and your food, she has taken care of the rest, including having the beds made. It was nice to be able to go straight in and unpack and start enjoying our vacation. We all had a great time and had plenty of room. We had with us 4 adults, 3 children and 1 fur baby. My nephew, his wife and a couple with them rented another house on the island and we all ate together with plenty of room. Thank you Ms. Fran for all you did to make our week a great vacation.

Relax and Reconnect

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Pelican Point and came away rested, relaxed, and in love with the place! Fran really has thought of everything: we had five adults, as well as a pre-schooler and a 10-month old with us. We found the unit equipped with a high chair, pack-and-play, and even baby spoons! Older kids and grown-ups are not left out, though -- there is a lovely selection of nature books and guides for kids and grown-ups, so they can identify and learn about all the natural wonders they find on Harbor Island. There are also novels and magazines available, and games like Scrabble and Monopoly. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked; the towels are generously sized and fluffy, and the beds are so, so comfortable. There is plenty of space to sit and visit, and plenty of outside equipment for the beach, including several wagons for transporting beach chairs and babies. Everything was clean and in great condition -- our family feels as if we've found a perfect place to relax and reconnect!!
