Harbor Island is gated beach community on a small barrier island, 14 miles southeast of charming, historic Beaufort SC. The island is bordered by the Harbor River on the north, Saint Helena Sound and the Atlantic to the east, and Johnson's creek to the south. Harbor is very much a get away from it all location, with nothing commercial inside of our gates except a small sundries shop at the Beach and Racquet Club (BRC). Also at the BRC you may enjoy use of the Olympic sized pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River, a small kiddie pool and playground, sand volleyball court, tennis courts and a well equipped fitness center.

Nearby Beaufort offers plenty of options for off-island enjoyment. Downtown Beaufort offers fun boutique shopping, horse and carriage rides through the historic district filled with beautiful antebellum homes, and a gorgeous waterfront public park stretching along the Beaufort River where you can watch boats passing by or docking in the marina. Dolphin watch and other 'day cruise' boats leave from the marina and offer great opportunities to see the lovely lowcountry scenery from the water. There are many dining options from fine dining to fast food, and fresh caught local seafood is a favorite both at restaurants and seafood markets. Depending on the time of year, you may want to try your hand at catching your own shrimp, crab or fish. Hunting Island has a wonderful fishing pier, and fishing off of the beach and in the creeks is permissible. For information about SC fishing regulations and licensing, visitors are advised to visit the website for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

If you are interested in exploring farther afield, historic Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, SC are easy day trips. Savannah is a little over an hours drive, Charleston about two hours. And the Hilton Head/Bluffton area, with outlet shops galore, is about an hour away.

Harbor Island is a gated beach community 14 miles south east of charming historic Beaufort SC. Harbor Island is quiet and low key, and offers 2.5 miles of natural beach, acres and acres of unspoiled tidal marsh, several bird sanctuary lagoons. Beaufort is about 25 minutes away and is a lovely town similar to Charleston or Savannah, but on a much smaller scale. Beaufort offers shops and restaurants along the waterfront park on the Intracoastal Waterway and nearby, tours of the historic district (both horse & buggy and walking tours) and boat tours are available from the downtown marina. If using a GPS or on-line mapping program, enter Saint Helena Island instead of Harbor Island....Harbor is considered to be a part of the larger township of Saint Helena Island. Golf: There are several golf courses open to the public, within an easy 20-30 minute ride. We will be happy to provide a list of the courses and contact information.

Perfect size for our large family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location- watched the birds and gators daily from the many porches. Some sheets reported dirty, saw some bugs--to be expected from the location, I guess.

My family gathered for my Mom's 70 th birthday ! We had people come from Ohio, Florida and Massachuets. We had 10 adults and 4 kids. It worked out great! It never felt cramped and we had great family dinners around the table. The beach was close and calm. We visited Hunting State park and Fripp Island for bigger waves. We went in July and the house was nice and cool and there was usually s nice breeze on the side patio that looked over a wetlands area which happened to be rookery while we were there! It was cool to see all the birds ! It was great for a large group! It was also clean and well equipped!

Thanksgiving at Harbor Island...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the beach. Our extended family ranges from age 2 to 84, and the house was awesome for everyone. The house was clean and well kept. The elevator was extremely helpful in unloading and loading suitcases and supplies. The house is actually much bigger than the pictures make it appear. We had a full house and yet there was space to get away from the crowd. We watched the alligators and birds in the lagoon, the sun sets were beautiful. Thanks for making it a Thanksgiving to remember.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for us! It was clean and the beds were great! We would have liked an interior stairs to all levels but it worked out ok. The wild life in the lagoon was like being part of a National Geographic special! There is a very short walk to the beautiful beach. The wagon was great. Two washers and two refrigerators were very helpful! We would definitely return.
