Welcome to a bird-watcher's paradise! Harbor Island recently has been given the coveted classification as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the National Audubon Society.
Harbor Island is one mile from Hunting Island and is a gated community that treasures the natural beauty and serenity of the area. Harbor Island's 2-1/2 miles of white sand beach and untouched dunes are carefully protected.
Our ground-floor condo has easy access to the beach and pool from both the front and back doors. The unit sleeps four comfortably with a queen-sized bed and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. There is also floor space for an air mattress, if needed.
Location of our condo to the ocean:
Our condo building would be directly oceanfront except that it is turned at an angle to the beach rather than being parallel to it. As such, from our deck, when one looks to the right, the view extends across approx. 80 feet of grass to the edge of the sand dune system and across the dunes to the water.
From our deck, one has a view of the ocean, palm trees, dunes, and a swimming pool, lawn, and other villas. A boardwalk begins at the dunes at the end of our building and proceeds directly to the beach--a 60-second walk over untouched dunes.
Harbor Island is an unspoiled island paradise, a perfect vacation place for the whole family where one can leave the crowds behind and relax comfortably in a beautiful natural setting. We look forward to sharing our lovely villa and the magic of Harbor Island with you.

Why Shane and Leigh Ross chose Saint Helena Island
In all of our travels, Harbor Island is on our short list of amazing beach locations. The secluded beaches, abundant wildlife, amazing scenery and awesome food make the low country such a special place. We feel that our condo offers one of the best values on the island without sacrificing quality. Everything in the unit has been upgraded in the past few years and the location is very convenient to the beach and pools.
What makes this Condo unique
Everything about Harbor Island is unique. The views and uncrowded beaches are what captivated us. The wildlife is also unreal. The ability to pop over to Hunting Island or into Beaufort are also huge benefits to the location.

Restful stay on Harbor Island SC
We spent some pleasant time in December 2017 at this condo on Harbor Island. The condo was quite comfortable and contained a fully equipped kitchen. It was just possible to see the ocean from the deck of the condo, but it's a bit of a stretch to call it ocean view. It was an easy walk over a boardwalk to reach the beach. There are many interesting things to see in the Beaufort area, and it has a fascinating history. I would recommend a vacation here.
Beautiful well appointed condo .
Wonderful home away from home. Excellent owners very friendly and fast to reply to requests. Went the extra mile to assist us when we have a scheduling mix up with our children.
We had everything we needed and felt right at home
This was our second stay in this condo and, like the first, it was great! There was a slight mix up upon our arrival and the unit had not been cleaned. However, I contacted the owners and the problem was quickly remedied while we went to dinner. We will definitely book this unit again in the Spring. Thanks Leigh and Shane!
Excellent space for a quiet getaway
As always, had a wonderful time at Harbor Island. Hunting Island has reopened so tons to do.
Condo was well kept and the owners were so easy to work with. We look forward to our next stay.
Thank you so much! We enjoyed having y'all! :)
Quiet and great for the kids!
This is a great condo! Loved how close we were to the pool and beach! The beach was so calm and fun for the kids...during low tide in the afternoon, we could walk out forever! We so enjoyed all the birds, crabs, lizards and frogs we encountered all over. My suggestions are small... springs in the fold out couch are broken...we had to lay the ironing board underneath the mattress for our kids to sleep there.... definitely would not recommend the fold out for adults. Also, the shower curtain smelled mildewed...I sprayed it down with Lysol and it was ok. The beach chairs are rusted and need replaced...would recommend bringing your own. These things were small when compared to how much we loved this place... drinking coffee/wine on the patio bird watching, playing in the pool when we weren't enjoying the uncrowded beach, grilling outside...so relaxing and fun! We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the kind review and suggestions! We will definitely make those improvements in the near future! :)
