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 search of profits. It is easy to get to, 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!!!

Perfect for relaxing stay with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house on cul-de-sac with easy walk to beach. Kitchen was well supplied, beds were comfortable , every room immaculate. Loved the porches up and down for eating outside or lounging in hammock. Enjoyed the community pool and nearby restaurant. Will definitely return here. It had everything we needed.

Little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This place...we have stayed here several years and we ventured out to try other properties on the island but I have to tell you this really is a house that makes you feel like you're home. The beds...isn't that what we all want on vacation: a comfortable bed...nailed it. The owners do a wonderful job of keeping the property fresh and inviting. It is always very clean. The bikes and golf cart make getting around the island fun for everyone in the family. When we have been there and needed anything at all, we could not ask for the owners to be more responsive and that is one thing that definitely puts this property at the top of our list. The back porch area will be one of your favorite places to relax during your stay. The sunset from the back porch is incredible. The layout of the house is perfect for bringing two families. To the owners: thank you for sharing your home!!!

Very nice home, comfortable. NO WAVES AT BEACH though!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, with nice decks, comfortable layout and furnishings. We had our kids ages 9-15 and they were very disappointed that there were no waves on the beach at Harbor Island (we had no idea). We ended up going to nearby Hunting Island State Park for waves but it was inconvenient. Had we known this we would have never stayed at Harbor Island. Also thought it was unusual that the master bedroom had no privacy/sun shades, and none of the decks had insect screening, and a little unusual that the included golf cart did not have seatbelts or lights. Also, the beach immediately adjacent to the house had abandoned houses that were eyesores, so you had to travel by golf cart to get to the more scenic beach area. Overall, the house was great but the Harbor Island limitations (at no fault of the owners of this house!) dampened our enthusiasm for this rental. It all depends on what you are interested in doing!

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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 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!

  • 5 of 5

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.
