Overview

About the property

Beachfront Luxury 2 BR, 2.5 Bath Open Floor Plan

Spectacular panoramic views takes your breath away. Ocean, pools, palm trees. Walk out onto the deck and breath in the fresh sea air, hear the waves -- you are on vacation!

One of eight oceanfront corner units on the island! The extra side windows overlook a pool, swaying palms and the ocean -- making the villa brighter, offering breezes yet maintaining privacy.

Completely renovated villa beautifully decorated in light, soothing colors. Modern kitchen, breakfast bar, formal dining table or al fresco dining on the deck. Free internet, Roku, cable and 3 large flat screen TVs. Master bedroom with King bed, updated bathroom with regular/rain shower and 2 vanities. Second bedroom with 2 twins beds and a bathroom with standard Tub/shower to bath the children. Condo sleeps 4 (no sleeper sofa). New full size washer & dryer.

Watch the sunrise while having coffee on the deck! Nap by one of 3 sparkling pools! Enjoy the sounds of birds chirping, gentle waves breaking, and cross breezes in the palms while reading a good book. Take a long sunset walk on 2.5 miles of private beach while fiddler crabs skitter into their holes and shorebirds skim the waves or crowd the water’s edge foraging for food. Visit nesting egrets and herons with their chicks in the rookeries-with turtles and alligators sunning in the shallows below.

Join a group to watch and tag horseshoe crabs. The children can build sand castles, learn all about turtles; play in the gentle surf or any of the 3 pools. Crab or cast for shrimp at the crabbing dock, surf-fishing at the beach. Witness huge loggerhead turtles nesting or their tiny hatchlings making their way down the beach on the beginning of a long journey to the Sargasso Sea.

Guests have free access to the nearby Beach and Racquet Club containing: work out-gym, tennis courts, basketball court, baby pool, playground, badminton court, gift shop and bikes for rent.

Harbor Island is a very special place. Private gated community, miles of beach, 3 gorgeous pools, so peaceful. You will want to extend your vacation indefinitely.

Visit nearby Hunting Island State Park (5 minutes) to learn more about local nature, fish off the pier, ride the big waves, climb the lighthouse; or take a 15 minute drive into historic Beaufort for shopping, restaurants and history, the cinemas--both indoors and a real outdoor drive-In.

Many festivals go on year-round between Bluffton, Hilton Head, Savannah, and Beaufort’s Waterfront Park. A fantastic military museum located at Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Parris Island (20 minutes).

Great shopping at cute shops in Beaufort or take a trip to Charleston 1 1/2 hr or 1 hour to historic Savannah, Georgia. Each makes a great day trip.

We live in Beaufort and spend much of our time at the villa. We hope that you will enjoy and

appreciate the villa as we do and leave it as you found it. Bring your toothbrush, your favorite pillow, your swimsuit and a beach towel. Come relax and enjoy!

About Judy Waters

Upon retirement we moved to South Carolina and fell in love with the area. We live close to town but love having a nearby beach retreat --we feel like we are on a mini vacation when we are out here! So quiet and close to nature--we know you will fall in love with Harbor Island!

Judy Waters purchased this condo in 2012

Why Judy Waters chose Low Country & Resort Islands

Harbor Island is in a special protected nature area called the ACE Basin. There are many species of migratory birds, loggerhead turtles and other wildlife here! We just couldn't believe that we could actually found such an incredible place. We feel very privileged to be here and be able to share it.

What makes this condo unique

We have tried to make the condo into a serene and light-filled place. One feels at peace and happy the moment you enter. A lot of engineering went into making the condo feel large, comfortable and easy to live in. The views, comfortable furnishings and full electronics provide easy living and entertainment.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo!

My husband and I travelled with my 2 year old son to Harbor Island and we did not regret it. You couldn't beat the location either. We made all of our meals in the condo and even ordered out... we figured we rather have the beautiful view while eating dinner, rather than in a restaurant.

The beach was relaxing and not crowded. I realize it was mid April, but still, serene. The people who live on the island are also very friendly and welcoming. People were always smiling and saying, "hello".

We traveled to Savannah one day and Hilton Head, both trips are a little over an hour from the condo.

Lastly, the owners were very accommodating and had plenty of hospitality. We will certainly return again.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Harbor Island! We are not partiers and were definitely looking for someplace away from the crowds and this was exactly it! Beautiful, quiet beaches, the sun rising over the ocean every morning... What more could you ask for? Candace is very sweet and was super responsive to a small issue we had! We hope to return very soon!

Nice quiet place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week during my daughters spring break and had a nice relaxing time. The area was still recovering from Hurricane Matthew in November, and there was quite a bit of construction work around. We were disappointed that the park and lighthouse were still closed, but we still had a great time on the private beach at Harbor Island. The condo is comfortable and had the items we needed to cook, etc during our stay. The property is located between Charleston and Savannah and is a good base for day trips to both.

Owner's Response: So glad you found the peace and relaxation you were looking for and enjoyed our villa! The Nature Center at Hunting Island is open and work to open more parts of the state park is ongoing. Www.friendsofhuntingisland.org has updates. Our beach is as gorgeous as ever!

Heavenly Retreat from Life

  • 5 of 5

Realized I forgot to review last summer's visit; was checking availability for a return trip in off season. :) That says it all! This condo is stunning and the owner was so kind. If the clutter and commercialized feeling of NC/SC beaches make you cringe - here's your heaven. It's clean, updated, and perfect for low country exploring. We fell in love with the natural state of the beach from the wildlife to the open space between umbrellas. My husband and I (early 30's newlyweds) had a wonderful week here with my parents and didn't feel cramped. Wish I was on the porch with a book right now...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! So glad you want to return! That's the best testimonial. We would love to have you make us an annual ritual :) Go ahead and put in an inquiry for the dates you are thinking -- we tend to keep the off season to ourselves but it would depend on our travel plans.

Wonderful View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent the week with our 12 year old daughter. It was great having two full baths. The condo was beautifully decorated in a very relaxing beachy theme. The best part was the view and the easy access to the beach. We loved the location. We drove to Savannah one day and Hilton Head one day for a fishing charter. Shopped downtown Beaufort and also checked out the Hunting Island State Park (don't forget the bug spray), Very sad to leave. Would love to come back over the winter to see it in a different season.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! We agree the view is the best and having extra windows as an end unit means more of it. Can't get any closer to the beach either. It is lovely here in the off season, so do give it a try...we have a wonderful electric fireplace we put in so you can snuggle up with a hot drink and still take those long beach walks...but email me as I typically block off the time for ourselves :)
