About Dawn or Richard Harrington

I have been coming to Ocean Lakes since the first year it opened. When I married, this became one of our regular vacation spots. In 1979 we bought our first summer cottage here. Our children grew up spending many of their summer vacations in Ocean Lakes. In 2000, my husband and I retired here and built The Yellowbird as our permanent residence on the lake. Our kids and their college friends loved to come and visit us on the weekends. We lived in The Yellowbird for 5 years before moving, but we kept the house for weekend getaways with family and friends. Now we are renting it so others can enjoy it too.

Why Dawn or Richard Harrington chose Ocean Lakes

The Yellowbird has all the conveniences of home plus a nice backyard on the lakefront. Enjoy the close proximity of the beach without all the noise and hustle and bustle of the resort. We (the owners) handle the Saturday 'turnover' ourselves to make sure you receive a beautiful, clean, organized, and well-maintained home for your vacation.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat

We had a lovely stay at the Yellowbird. Dawn was amazing to work with. Super friendly and responsive when we needed anything. The house is on a beautiful lake where you can fish. Kids loved catching some big bass. The walk to the ocean is nice and you can see it from the deck but are away from all the hustle and bustle. It is a great set up for larger groups. House was also very clean and had everything we needed for the week. The waterpark looks like it will be a blast. Too bad we missed it by a couple of months. Thanks for your hospitality and hope we can come again.

We Love the Yellowbird!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled 18 hours in a van with 7 children to South Carolina! Arriving at our "new home" for two weeks was completely worth the drive. Dawn was very accommodating to our little ones' needs! There was plenty of room for everyone to run around and play! We had dinner on the deck every night where the kids would wait for the ducks and their ducklings to swim by. At night, the older girls would sit on the upper deck and watch the fireworks from the beach front. This has to be the best view at Ocean Lakes! Can't wait to go back!!!! Thanks Dawn, we have so many wonderful memories from our stay that we will forever cherish!
