About Derrick Hampton

My Wife and I (Derrick and Roxanne) along with my brother and his wife (Travis and Sage) decided to embark on an adventure and build our oceanfront dream house. It was completed in 2014 in the beautiful low country of South Carolina on Harbor Island. We purposefully built our home with guest's creature comforts in mind. We wanted it to feel like you are sitting at home on your comfortable sofa while you're watching the waves crawl upon the shore outside your back porch. We built our home and had a very successful and fun 3 years and then along came Hurricane a Matthew. Our home was built so well it survived but we needed to rebuild much of it. Also, after the storm we had lost our dunes and needed to find a new lot on the island. We were blessed to be able to move our home to the best lot on the island. Built back to brand new and relocated. We are now at the sparsely populated north end of the island with views to die for. I am truly awestruck every time I walk into our home. Breathtaking vistas is not a strong enough statement to describe the beauty surrounding it. We love to spend as much time as we can there (living in Georgia we are only a short drive away) and we know you will love it too. We try to make sure that when you step into our house, you feel like you are home. We respond quickly to any issue you may have and we live by the motto 'do the right thing all the time.' Welcome to our home , the Hampton's.

Derrick Hampton purchased this house in 2014

Why Derrick Hampton chose Harbor Island

Building this home has been a dream of my family and my brother's family. Completed in 2014, it is built with the strictest of codes, designed to handle mother nature and keep you comfortable. My brother and I have always loved South Carolina. Being from Georgia, we would take trips annually to our neighboring state and enjoy her beauty and hospitality, food and golf. We are so excited to be counted among her community and even more excited to share it with others. We know you will love the 'Low Country' as much as we do. Come stay at our home.... The Hampton House.

What makes this house unique

MILLION DOLLAR VIEWS EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK! No need to fight over who has the best room. Each one offers unique and awe inspiring views of the ocean, sound, river or marsh. Just steps out the back door onto your private boardwalk, brings you to one of South Carolina's most serene and untouched beaches. Dolphins make their morning and evening swim just outside of your porch. Shrimp boats ply their trade every morning just after sunrise. Harbor Island itself is recognized by the Audubon Society with it's teaming birdlife. Logger Head turtles nest on the shores every year. Truly an amazing island. This is why we built here and this is why our house is the perfect place to bring your family for a lifetime of memories. The first time you have your morning coffee on the screened in back porch while watching the dolphins chase the shrimp boats, you will be as hooked as we are. Every room in the house has breathtaking views. The back offers the awe inspiring vista of the sound and the ocean. From the front porch admire the surreal beauty of the low country marsh. The north view gives you the scenic Harbor river and the bridge. Absolutely amazing! Beaufort, only 15 miles down the road, is the second oldest city in South Carolina and is the very embodiment of a 'Low Country' coastal town. It is so beautiful, many movies were filmed here including 'Forest Gump' and 'The Big Chill'. If you love golf as much as we do, you will love the many golf course within a few minutes drive. Our house was built to allow not only us to enjoy all the low country has to offer, but you as well. You are welcome here at The Hampton House.

Beautiful home in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at the Hampton House from July 29, 2017 through August 5, 2017. The house would be great to stay in regardless where it is located but being on the water with views of the ocean from almost every window is a fantastic setting. The house has everything one needs- all the beach toys, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrella, kitchen tools, and golf cart made the stay perfect. The screened porch was where we spent the most time in the house as the ocean breeze, shade, and view were wonderful! We either walked or drove the golf cart near the old lot where the house sat when we wanted to get into the water as there were many people fishing close to the new location of the house and they caught a few sharks. No one was fishing down the beach where we swam we didn't see anything other than pelicans and the dolphins.

Speaking of the dolphins, a highlight of the trip was kayaking near the shrimp boats that the dolphins follow and being within 5-10 feet of the 20-some dolphins out in the ocean. We also did a running tour in Beafort to see historical sights in an active way. In addition, we took the short drive to Hunting Island State Park to hike some trails, climb the lighthouse, and visit the beach. All of these activities were enjoyable and are recommended.

We had a wonderful time and thank the Hampton's for helping us have a wonderful vacation!

An amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 7 amazing days at the Hampton House property on Harbor Island. The home and location provided just what we were looking for for our group of 8.

4 comfortable bedrooms provided all the space we needed to spread out and the two master suites were perfect for the adults. The combination kitchen/living area was great for meal time, even allowing all of us to sit together at one table to enjoy our meals. And even though we ended up having to stay inside due to a couple days of stormy weather, there were games to play, cards and movies to keep us occupied. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to whip up a meal, and we used the grill provided to cook up some steaks we brought from Iowa to go along with fresh shrimp and scallops that we picked up from a local shop.

Once we could be outdoors we enjoyed all the extras provided, including the kayaks which gave us some practice for a kayak tour we took in Beaufort during the week. In addition the beach toys, boogie boards, umbrellas and beach chairs provided would allow anyone to pack light and still have everything that is needed on the beach. And speaking of the beach, it was nearly private which was amazing compared to some other beach locations we have visited.

The 6 person golf cart worked perfect for quick trips to the pool on the Island, which we visited often as it was vey nice.

As far as the location and Island itself, we felt that it offered some incredible opportunities to view several different kinds of wildlife. We connected with the Turtle team on the island and one morning my daughter was lucky enough to be able to hold a hatchling that had been left behind that the team got to the water. The hermit crabs and blue crabs were fun to watch, and we never tired of watching the dolphins following the shrimp boats each day. We took in Hunting Island which was very close by and really enjoyed the boneyard beach and Lighthouse there. We had some great food at both Marsh Tacky and Johnson Creek Tavern which were literally minutes away.

If you are looking for a place to kick back, relax and enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones with all the comforts of home, this is the place for you. Don't hesitate to stay here if you have the opportunity!

Fantastic beachfront house!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views and location . It is like staying at your own private island! House is accommodating and comfortable. My only suggestion: more outside furniture on decks. ( a hammock would be nice) also a big pot for shrimp and crab boil. We are staying again next year we liked it so much!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It is like being on your own private island! Those are excellent suggestions and we will definitely work on that as soon as we can get back in the house. We actually had a hammock before the hurricane. The storm took it. I think it ended up in Virginia :) Looking forward to having you next year! The Hamptons

Great house! Quiet peaceful beach. Perfect.

House in near-perfect condition with everything we needed for our adult family's vacation. Kayaks were fun and we used the provided charcoal grill. Fascinated by the close proximity of dolphins!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property. The house is amazing and the views can't be beat. Now located at the end of the road it is even more like having your own private beach. Dolphins galore and lots of crabs too and the sunsets were spectacular. Spent the week with our kids and grandkids and the house was set up very nice for that many people. All being together under one roof was a memory we will share forever. Thank you Hamptons!!

It's an absolute WOW!! Very scenic in any direction you look. Very well supplied & homey

  • 5 of 5

We are the first family to stay in the Hampton House since it had been moved from its beach lot due to Hurricane Matthew. We are grateful to the Hampton's working so hard to make this our vacation perfect. The house and lot is unbelievable!! The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable and very well supplied for a weeks stay. Had a lot of fun fishing, just at the end of the board walk. Catching different types of shark, plus some sting ray & croakers. We had the beach to ourselves being this is the last lot on the end of the island. Enjoyed watching the dolphins and the shrimp boats working. We had dolphins swimming within 30'-40' of us as we walked. Love the strolls on the beach with unbelievable sunsets!! It was great having the 6 person golf cart to go to the pool and exlpore the other parts of the island. Some of the family enjoyed taking the kayaks out with there little ones. The screened in deck was used more than any other part of the house with a large table and chairs, and other chairs to lounge on. I just can't say enough about how wonderful the Hampton House is. Thank you Derrick and family for all you've done!
