About David Bethune
Our family was in search of a 'best kept secret' place to build a vacation home. We loved Harbor Island so much we bought 8 lots and built a 4 bedroom home at 8 Scallop Ct. Our boys love the beach and pool / play ground area. We enjoy the peace and quiet of Harbor and the great dining in Beaufort.
Why David Bethune chose Beachwalk
Harbor is not publicized because it is owned by the Homeowner's Association, not a Corporation in seacrch of profits. It is easy to get too, just outside of Beaufort, S.C. The place is 'just like it used to be' with no commercialization. Just great neighbors and natural beauty!
What makes this House unique
Your heart will beat a little slower! Included with the rental : The Beach & Racquet Club (recently updated) offers a magnificent pool overlooking the marsh and western sunset, a baby pool, tennis courts, playground, basketball, sand volleyball, shuffleboard, corn hole, horseshoes, & many more amenities. The natural private island offers 2 miles of beautiful sandy beach! Harbor Island is paradise found!!!

First off I'd like to say I did not stay in this rental. I had the pleasure of meeting the owners while renting the property next to them. A very family oriented couple! Just would like to say thanks for giving my youngest son (who knows no strangers) a great first vacation experience! Thanks for building memories of a lifetime that I'm sure he will always remember! First blue crab netting, popsicles and someone other than family to hang out with for a few. Wish we could of had more free time to just let the boys be boys. He talked about it all on the way home! 12 hrs 😳 Lol Thanks again!
Heaven on earth!!
I'm hesitant to write a review because I really love this place and don't want the 'secret' out about this house and the location! The house is a great layout and you will find you want to spend any time you are at the house on one of the two huge porches. The view, the breeze....it is heavenly! We stayed at this beautiful property with two families and three children. The beds are terrific. The kitchen has everything you need so need to bring the kitchen sink from home. The beach is a very short walk but I highly recommend utilizing the golf cart which makes for a fun easy way to get around the community. The owners are very easy to work with and will make this the easiest vacation you have ever booked. If you are considering visiting Harbor Island, this is the house for you!
Perfect for Family Vacation!
This is a beautiful house that was built by someone who pays attention to detail. The quality of everything is first class. The layout was perfect for my wife and kids with plenty of room for all. With the golf cart, it takes one minute to get to the beach and just two minutes to the pool. The location is great. The view from either deck is beautiful. We enjoyed the early morning breeze and view of the boats going by with our coffee. The kids loved the hammock. We didn't want to leave! I hope we can go back soon. The owners are to be commended for taking such good care or the house, both inside and out.
Beautiful Beach House!!!
We enjoyed New Years Eve at the Beach on Harbor Island this year! Even though it was the "off-season" it is always great to visit the beach. This home was PERFECT for us. There were three couples and we had a great time grilling on the back porch overlooking the ocean, sleepin late in the big comfortable beds, and watching some football on the big-screen TV. A very short walk or golf cart ride to the beach, this house is just about a perfect vacation rental. Thanks to the owners and to Harbor Island!!!! We will be back this summer!!!!!

What a beautiful home! Your home was everything and more than represented by photos and the description. The home was nicely decorated, fully furnished and clean. We had a wonderful relaxing time enjoying the weather and the view, especially from the upper back deck. Harbor Island was more than we expected. Thanks for sharing your special home with our family so we could visit with our Daughter and Son-in-law who is stationed at Paris Island and to celebrate our Grandson's first Birthday!

Comment Text: We stayed at this house the first week of August, 2007. It is wonderful! Perfect for our family. The view from the upper deck is spectacular, and we had our evening cocktails up there every night. The layout of the house is very user-friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. Harbor Island is paradise, and is a wonderful place for families. Safe, nice beach, calm water - great for little guys who want to dig in the sand or build castles. No harsh waves or undertow. The house is a mere 5 min. walk from the house and the owner has provided a wonderful red wagon to carry chairs, coolers, and children. We plan to rent again in 2008.
