About the property

Thank you for taking a look at our place.

Sea Island Serenity has been completely renovated in 2016 and is now ready for you to make memories.

This lovely place is located just outside from the gated community of Harbor Island, which means you save the cost of a car pass and yet you are only 5 minutes away from the Hunting Island State Park Beach and only 2 minutes away from the next boat landing. Also, Downtown Beaufort is less than 20 minutes away from this beautiful "Sea Island Serenity' cottage.

No worries, we provide the passport for the beach for one car!

The cottage sits on 0.54 acre land surround by the traditional southern oak trees and other local trees such as palm trees - you have the privacy you are looking for, yet you are only minutes away from the beach, boat landing, shopping and dining.

Bring your boat - we got plenty of space to park it.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms (each has a queen size bed) and 1 bathroom (tub/shower) We also have a kids TV/ Playroom which is equipped with a twin day bed and a trundle for extra sleeping space. For our little baby guests we offer a pack n play for additional sleeping as well as a high chair for the dining table.

The cottage offers a beautiful screened in porch where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening and bugs stay outside. We also have a big deck one the side of the house which we have equipped with a grill and additional seating.

There is a TV and DVD player in the living room and we offer cable TV and Internet at the cottage for your enjoyment. You can either bring your own DVD's or rent them from near by places.

Our beautiful brand new kitchen is equipped with anything you can think off and possibly more. If there would be anything else you need, just give us a call.

Since there is no land line phone inside the cottage, a cell phone is a must for emergencies or to contact us during your stay for any problems or questions.

We take pride in our cottage, so we have arranged a cleaning service to clean after your stay. They will also wash and dry linens and towels and replace them for the next guests.

Thanks again for taking your time to look at our listing and we hope to have you as our guest soon.

See y'all soon!

Cute beach vacation bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Island house is a good launch point for a beach vacation. Close to Huntington Island state park and not far from Beaufort.

Nadine is responsive and a good host.

Great location to the beach and the seafood from Gay's was delicious. House was very well stocked with cookware and utensils. We were traveling with family and our nephews FIRST beach trip! We would love to make this a frequent stay. Nadine was very helpful and pleasant to speak with.

Classy, cute, clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful three-night stay at Sea Island Serenity and loved it! We would certainly recommend it and would love to return someday. The cottage itself was delightful and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed nearby Hunting Island beach and lighthouse, as well as Dockside (1 1/2 hour wait, FYI), Shrimp Shack, Foolish Frog and free ice cream from Bubba's. :) We got some fresh grouper and flounder fillets from Gay Fish Co. and one our daughters prepared it with a coconut breading and served it with her mango salsa. Too good!!

Two very minor suggestions: Another mirror (maybe in the hallway?) would help a large group/family get ready faster. :)

Also, we accidentally drove off with the thoughtfully provided pass for Hunting Island as we were leaving. Thankfully, we noticed before we got too far down the road and turned around to return it. Perhaps a reminder might be helpful in the check out directions?

We were unamimous in our enjoyment of how tastefully decorated and renovated the cottage is. It has the charm of an older cottage, with the class and comfort of a new one!

It was very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The beach was only minutes away and it was so nice that we were able to use beach chairs and an umbrella from the property. Access was very easy and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. We highly recommend this property to others!
