We had a wonderful time at the Sailfish. Love our home in Kentucky, but was a real treat to experience island life for a few days. Was a true home-away-from-home experience.
Perfect For Our Large Family
From the moment we inquired about renting the Sailfish, the owners have been nothing short of amazing! Laura was prompt to answer any emails and to provide all information. She also provided lots of information on local things to do and see which raised our excitment for the trip even more.
The house was beautifully decorated, but still functional and comfortable. Even with everyone inside relaxing, we never felt crowded. The golf cart makes getting to the beach or pool very easy and the kids begged us to drive them around all the time. The view from the back porches is stunning. We speny many evenings watching heat lightening crack the sky in the distance while listening to the sounds of the marsh.
The community center offered 2 educational programs on wildlife (sea tutles and snakes) which our kids loved. The 4th of July golf cart parade was cute too!
We can not wait for our next trip to Beaufort to stay at the Sailfish!
We enjoyed our stay at the Sailfish. There is plenty of room and lots of privacy when needed. Several amenities (golf cart, bicycles, beach chairs, etc.)are provided that make the stay better. The house is beautifully decorated and clean.
Thank you so much for such a good experience. We hope to do this again.
Home is just as pictured. We spent a week here with our children and grandchildren. We had everything needed for a perfect vacation. Home is well equipped and maintained. Owners have thought of EVERYTHING you might need. The grandchildren enjoyed the pool and bikes. Adults enjoyed kayaks in the sound as dolphins played around them. Beautiful views from the deck as we enjoyed evening meals. Highly recommend the Sailfish for family fun!
Laura and Allen are great to work with. All arrangements taken care of before you arrive. You drive up and let the fun begin! Thanks for a wonderful week!
Thank you so much for the kind comments! It has been a pleasure having you and I hope you can return again soon. Harbor is such a beautiful, peaceful island. I truly enjoy having guests who share our love for the island and the Sailfish. The deck is my favorite spot! Thank you! Laura
We stayed at the Sailfish when our son graduated from Parris Island. The home was beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. The layout of the home is excellent for multiple families. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one could need to prepare dinner. The pool table and trips to the beach on the golf cart were fun. Our stay at the Sailfish was wonderful and I would recommend renting the home. The renting process was simple and easy.
Thanks so much for the review! I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Hope you can return again .... and stay longer!
Family from Charleston & Greenville SC
Our family enjoyed a great week at the Sailfish house. The open living area was great for our family gathering, as were the bedrooms. We really enjoyed the outside decks & eating at the outside table after cooking on the grill. There was always a nice breeze out there & a great outdoor reading area. We bought a Huntington Island park pass for the week at the fishing pier & used it several days to go to & fro, including climbing the lighthouse. The golf cart was a neat way to travel to the pool & beach. The kitchen was well stocked w/everything needed to prepare meals. Thank you for great family memories at the Sailfish.
