LOVELY OCEANSIDE CONDO NEAR POOL AND BEACH! WIFI!

Harbor Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Gloria, first let me apologize for not writing sooner. Sometimes things get out of control, while you away. That's what has happened here.



Anyway, things were super. All the months leading up to vacation, your expectations grow. Praying that you did the right planning, lodging, etc... Sometimes even stressful. Family members coming from out of state. Well, your condo was far better, than any of us could of asked for. The people at Harbor Island were the nicest staff members. Friendly, and very helpful in getting around, since the bridge accident. Everything, was what your web site stated. The pool area, the boardwalk, and the beach was wonderful. The best time is in the morning, while walking the beaches. There is an entirely new world (life) on the beach. To see the crabs, birds, and trawlers is quite an experience. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home, on the beach. Now when we say, lets go to the beach, or make any reference to the beach, (It won't mean Myrtle) we have a special place in our memories, and our hearts. Thank you again.



In case someone wants to use a charter: Cast Away Charters, Capt. Tim Deckard 843-322-1043 (h) 843-321-1768 (C) rates are very reasonable, and did what ever it took for us to bring home fish. We even caught a 54 pound String Ray. You just never know what we get into. We even had my 6 year old grandson with us. He was entertained with some extra chores on the boat.



Shrimp Shack is the place to be for seafood. Good stuff. Steamers is excellent, (a little pricey, frogmore stew is to die for)..haha



You have my permission to use any of this e-mail for your guest book comments.



Once again, Thank you........You will be hearing from us again.....and for our friends also........

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.

Gloria purchased this condo in 2004

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.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in May and it was one of the best vacations we've ever taken. We went on day trips to Charleston, Savannah and Hunting Island all of which were worth visiting. The beach at Harbor Island was tranquil and filled with interesting birds and horseshoe crabs. Gloria's condo was perfect and in great condition containing everything we needed. We went to the Mainline Market just up the road from the Harbor Island entrance and purchased fresh grouper and clams for dinner several times. The view from the deck was exactly as Gloria described and I was able to see shrimp boats floating by. This was our first visit to Harbor Island and we hope to be back many times and when we do we will definitely stay at Gloria's condo.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
we had a great getaway to harbor island. The condo was cute and very clean and the fact that you for the most part had the beach to yourself was a plus also. Gloria was wonderful to deal with and was able to help us with an extra night at the last minute. We did everything you could think of to do from walking the beach to charter fishing with Capt Tim and loved it all. Hope to come back in the fall!

GREAT DEAL AT HI

  • 4 of 5
One-bedroom condo in gated community, close to a clean beach
and adjacent to spectacular Hunting Island State Park, is a good
place to stay while sightseeing the area. Unit has a glancing view
of the ocean from the back porch, and is close to the condo pool.
Would have given 5 stars if unit was oceanfront.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback! Concerning the view from the deck, we have tried to be as clear as possible that, to see the ocean from our deck, one looks to the right, over a lawn and past a pool 50 feet away, and then the dunes immediately beyond the pool, and out to the water. We think the word "glancing" is a bit sparse, but if you were expecting a directly oceanfront view, then yes, we understand. Thanks again. Much appreciated!

FABULOUS FEBRUARY

  • 5 of 5
We found the condo very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The area is beautiful, with easy walks over the dunes and along the beach. We enjoyed Hunting Island State Park and beautiful Beaufort. Day trips to Charleston and Savannah were not difficult and most rewarding. The owner, Gloria, was very attentive to our needs.

HARBOR ISLAND CONDO

  • 5 of 5
Gloria and John were extremely helpful and answered any questions we had; they went above and beyond our expectations and ensured we had all information we would need during our stay. Our vacation on Harbor Island was wonderful. The community is awesome - very friendly, private and safe. The property was clean and well maintained and the supplies were more than adequate. This is a first floor unit, so that was an added convenience. Our children love the beach, no matter what time of year; and this private beach was no exception. We visited during high tide and low tide, explored the tidal pools, enjoyed the sights and sounds, took long walks, and enjoyed beautiful sunsets every evening. The long boardwalks made accessing the beach very pleasant - no struggles with dragging everything through the sand! Hunting Island State Park is just minutes away. This time of year in SC is unmatched. We're hopeful to visit Harbor Island during another season and we'd definitely consider this condo again. For warmer weather visitors, the pool is just steps away! And many other amenities are nearby. Thank you Gloria and John for a wonderful place to stay while we enjoyed our beach vacation.

GOOD LOW COUNTRY LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time on our vacation. We found that the condo location very much suited our plans of exploring Savannah and Beaufort. Both cities were a pleasure. We also particularly enjoyed Hunting Island and spent the better part of two days there.

The weather was delightful and we found ourselves wishing there was a screen on the condo's sliding door. There were great sea breezes and we would have loved to do without the AC. We noticed several units also had front door screens; a good idea as well.

All and all, we were comfortable in the unit.

Thanks you for your prompt and professional handling of the rental process. You made doing business worry free!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind feedback! We agree with you on all points and are sorry the screen door was not there for you to enjoy. It is worn out and being measured so a new one can be ordered. Much of the year, a wonderful breeze blows in the screen door and out the kitchen and bedroom windows. We hope have a new door installed shortly so the breezes can be enjoyed inside the condo once again.
