Welcome to a bird-watcher's paradise! Harbor Island has been awarded the coveted classification as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the National Audubon Society.
Do you long for quiet walks on an uncrowded beach, for a get-away where you can relax and put your feet in the sand? If so, then beautiful Harbor Island is right for you! Harbor Island, a gated community, is located on the coast between Charleston and Savannah, 14 miles from historic Beaufort. The island has 2-1/2 miles of uninterrupted white sand beach.
This island paradise is for anyone who enjoys natural beauty! Even in peak season, the island and beach are uncrowded. Wildlife is abundant!
Our ground-floor condo has easy access to the beach and pool from both the front and back doors. The unit sleeps four with a queen-sized bed and a queen-sized sleeper sofa.
Location of our condo to the ocean:
Our condo building would be directly oceanfront except that it is turned at an angle to the beach rather than being parallel to it. As such, from our deck, when one looks to the right, the view extends across approx. 80 feet of grass to the edge of the sand dune system and across the dunes to the water.
From our deck, one has a view of the ocean, palm trees, dunes, and a swimming pool, lawn, and other villas. A boardwalk begins at the end of our building and leads directly to the beach--a 60-second walk over untouched dunes.
Hunting Island State Park (next island) is home to abundant wildlife, nature trails, and the only lighthouse in S.C. open to the public.
In the mood for some sightseeing and shopping? There's plenty to do nearby. Historic Beaufort is a 20-minute drive, and Savannah and Charleston are both just an hour's drive.
Harbor Island is an unspoiled island paradise, a perfect vacation place for the whole family where one can leave the crowds behind and relax comfortably in a beautiful natural setting. We look forward to sharing our lovely villa and the magic of Harbor Island with you.

We are a retired Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (him) and Technical Editor (her) who fell in love with Harbor Island from the moment we arrived.
We fell in love with the tranquility and abundant natural beauty of Harbor Island and the surrounding coastal area. In addition, we are long-time bird watchers, and some of our most prized photographs to date are from scenes in one of the island's rookeries.
We never know what wildlife beauty we will encounter. Each trip to the beach promises opportunity for new surprises: a school of dolphins frolicking off shore, a Tricolored Heron fishing in a tide pool, a tiny frog hopping along the board walk, a baby Loggerhead Turtle crawling across the beach on its maiden voyage to the sea... a tiny fragment of the many delightful discoveries we have encountered on Harbor Island.
