About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

From our ground floor condo one has a view of the ocean and the nature preserve which is a birders paradise. Our two balconies face the sea. The bedroom porch has 2 chaise lounges and the living room porch has a table with 4 chairs and access to a short boardwalk over the low sand dunes that take you to our 2,1/2 mile long unspoiled beautiful beach.

We are located 1 mile away from Hunting Island. The bed room has a King size bed with additional sleeping with a Queen sleeper sofa living room.

Please send an inquiry if you want a rate quote for a different period or look under Rates on this web page. The most important thing that I wish to convey early on is that we realize that you are on a budget. If you find a better rate from someone else, we ask that you give us an opportunity to beat their price. Just let us know what it is and their web address. Thank you. If you are looking for fall or winter rates, please check the note section under RATES

Oceanfront.

Need I say more? If you are like me I would rather stay at home if you can't stay oceanfront. If that is the case, then you've come to the right place. I want to wake up in the morning and see the ocean first thing. I want to drink my coffee while looking at the ocean.

This is truly an amazing place. Property values have yet to sky rocket into the stratosphere like the rest of the East Coast, which translates into a down-to-earth rental rate for you. You won’t experience the parking lot roadways so common in busy beach communities. While that’s all well and good, let’s be honest about the most important thing of all.

Here is a place that, figuratively-speaking, has a ‘temperature of 200 degrees’, melting away in the first moments you arrive all the trials and tribulations of the ‘real’ world. This is the place that, for a moment you become one with nature, where your batteries will get a good, very good, recharging. You can catch your breath.

You can turn to a loved one and say those three beautiful words. It is a mountaintop experience that prepares you to return to the valley where the work gets done. So how does it happen? Looking and walking beside the ocean, being surrounded in our condo by the very nicest things (over and over our guests have said how comfortable our place makes them feel) and lastly, enjoying our island which is, in part, a Nature Preserve (watch for the eagle and her nest).

You are standing, not sitting in the 'catbird seat'. Have you counted how many one bedroom places are available through VRBO for Harbor Island? I hope you have time to read them all. I promise you will learn a lot. Here is why we love our place and why we hope you will consider us above the rest. Our price is better. Our living room AND MASTER BEDROOM are oceanfront. We are completely redone inside.

There are a few things you must promise to do: stop at Gay’s Fresh Seafood, take the Carriage Ride in Beaufort, eat at Steamers, get up for a sunrise and take a nap in the afternoon. Enough bragging; come see for yourself.

EMAIL ME AND ASK FOR MY BOAT LOAD OF PICTURES. Please watch the video.

July 2017

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a budget rental near the beach, this is the one. It is a short walk from the pools and beach and is on the first floor, saving the up and down lugging of chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc and has a nice big stack washer and dryer. The two large sliding doors provide an abundance of light, especially in the morning and was very enjoyable until the afternoon sun arrived. The bedroom porch has two awesome reclining rockers and there are beech chairs and some kid toys available. The air conditioning units sit right outside the front door and generate a lot of heat so be prepared when entering and exiting the front door.

I would rent again if unit had wifi.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a nice review. Sorry that you were unhappy about the wifi, it is available as we said free at the clubhouse and pool area 100 yds from the condo, or its available at the condo for an nonimal fee for your entire stay. We hope that you will come back to our place again. Yours sincerely, Linda and Doug Stuart

Nicely furnished and comfortable place with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Island community is friendly, clean and quiet. The respect for nature and wildlife is evident. The beach was a short, scenic walk through the dunes on a boardwalk. We also enjoyed the pool and playground at the Beach Club with our little one.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Harbor Island several times. It is a beautiful, peaceful and quiet location and we love it. D building is truly Ocean Front and this condo has two decks to sit, read and watch the ocean. You can walk the beach all the way around the Island and enjoy every step! This condo is perfectly equipped and all furniture was comfortable and clean. We will be back soon!!

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived at Cedar reef on Harbour Island and found a very clean inviting cozy comfortable condo. The layout was exactly as shown and very inviting. We enjoyed our first morning cup of coffee with nothing but peace and quiet beautiful sound of nature. With our second cup of coffee we made our way to the beachfront where we found a beautiful beach and atmosphere to surround. Throughout the next four days we drank in the serenity of Harbor Island and the coziness of our condo. We departed knowing that we would make Harbor Island an annual October trip for us. And the plan to stay in the same condo if possible..

Dream Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our first vacation every by ourselves. It took 31 years. The condo is just as pretty as the pictures. As soon as I opened the door I knew this was going to be good. Very nice size perfect for two people. Bed was very comfy. Very clean, relaxing, beachy style décor. Loved the Bedroom. Watched the sun come up every morning. We really enjoyed the deck and watching all the birds.

The beach was great and the birds were migrating. We saw maybe hundreds of pelicans at the end of the beach. If you go into town eat at the Foolish Frog. The food is great and the staff there were so nice and a really fun atmosphere. Thad is the manager he was great. Also definitely go into Beaufort and walk through town to check out all the beautiful homes. You must try to eat at the Beaufort Inn. It is beautiful, but it is BYOB. Also check out Charleston (if you feel like driving). Wonderful time very relaxing. Just Beautiful scenery everywhere you look. Loved it. Thanks so much Linda.
