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 Candace Hanau

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!

Candace Hanau purchased this Condo in 2012

Why Candace Hanau chose Saint Helena Island

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

The condo is designed as a serene and light-filled place. One feels at peace and happy the moment you enter. Unique engineering made the condo larger and more comfortable then peers. The views, soft furnishings and full electronics provide easy living and entertainment.

                                                                  Eric P.

                                                                  Fantastic location on a secluded island. The villa's amenities are excellent and it is in pristine condition. Our family of four had a great time during the week. One evening, we attended an event at the island's community center on turtle preservation. We all learned something. Communication with Candace and Judy was excellent.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Beautiful beach front property

                                                                  Beverly G.Naperville, IL

                                                                  This was our first time to Harbor Island. This condo exceeded our expectations in every way. It was immaculate and beautiful and so very peaceful (blue, white and tan colors that mimic the outdoors - so smart!). Some special extras included a big front porch to store our sandy beach items, a great selection of both children's and adult books, a slew of brochures, maps and interesting local information (in the cabinet under the living room TV), a fun selection of games, every kitchen amenity possible, a super washer/dryer and folding area, and two bedrooms that were not only very spacious but also nicely decorated. We have stayed in many rental properties and this one absolutely tops the list. It is obviously well taken care of and loved! It is much prettier in person than in the photos (and it looks lovely in the photos!).

                                                                  We thoroughly enjoyed all three swimming pools at the complex - and even took a water aerobics class! We appreciated the outdoor foot showers at the entrance to the beach boardwalk. We used the charcoal grill almost every night, which was another great amenity! We discovered a cute gift shop and great market at the entrance to Fripp Island, only a 10 minute drive, which saved a longer drive back to Walmart for groceries. We spent an evening in Beaufort, which was well worth the short drive.

                                                                  The only negative was the water on the beach. While we all enjoyed taking walks along the shore and discovering shells, hermit crabs, snails, crabs, watching many birds and seeing dolphins swimming close to shore, it is not a typical Atlantic Ocean beach. There are no waves and at low tide the water all but disappears. This is a great beach for those who don't intend to swim, but enjoy sitting on the beach or strolling along. To experience a rolling ocean with waves and deeper water, it's worth the 5 minute drive and nominal admission fee to Hunting Island State Park. We visited many days and enjoyed body surfing and all the fun that comes along with an ocean experience. There's a great lighthouse there, as well as a gift shop, decent bathrooms and outdoor showers for cleaning off before returning to the condo.

                                                                  If you want hustle and bustle, this is not the place, but this condo and location are perfect for a very relaxing, quiet, absolutely beautiful getaway.

                                                                  Loved this property!! Will be coming back!

                                                                  Amanda C.

                                                                  We have been traveling to Harbor Island for 7 years now because when we found it we just fell in love with it! We loved the location of this condo...right next to the pool and directly on the walk to beach. This condo was newly updated and so very nice! They thought of everything! Nice flooring, comfortable living room furniture, great channel options on the tv, stocked kitchen, new washer and dryer, great book options (my son was obsessed with the children's books the entire week!), upgraded bathrooms, two sinks in the master. The only two things that I was disappointed in was that the beds in both rooms could have been more comfy and we had trouble with keeping the condo cool at night. Being two stories, the upstairs would be sweltering half way through the night. Almost like the air conditioner kicked off. I am sure it is a simple fix, or they could leave specific instructions for the air conditioner for what to do at night to keep it cool. It is certainly nothing that would keep us from not staying here again. We plan on coming back next year!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you Amanda! So glad the kids' books were a success and that you had a great time ! Re the AC, if one sets it at 67 -69 degrees, it creates a thermal layer between the cold air downstairs and the warmer air upstairs, blocking the cool air from getting upstairs (per my engineer husband-it's physics). We have it set at an optimal level of 74 that works for most people. However, you've got him going and he is adding more insulation in the attic. Re the beds, some like it firm, some like it soft. They are on the firmer side. Hope to have you return!
