Beaufort Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Give me a chance to beat someone else's rental rate. Parris Island and Hunting Island State Beach near by.*

Charleston and Savannah are but a stone's throw away (plus Hilton Head). This beautiful beach condominium at HARBOR ISLAND certainly fits the old adage ‘the best kept little secret’. Imagine walking on the beach and not tripping over sunbathers or using the tennis court anytime you wish. One does not have to complete with other people for sea shells on the beach. You can swim laps in the pool with your eyes closed……but perhaps the greatest joy is seeing the osprey that sits atop its nest as you drive in and out of the island. Let’s hope we never get to the age when seeing the birds don’t give us a thrill. If too many people find out about this closely guarded secret, will the birds continue to nest there?

VRBO classifies us as oceanfront but between us and the ocean is a tidal marsh. Not the kind of marsh that first comes to mind.....wet and buggy. It is dry and bugless. Most people are quite taken with the natural beauty of the tidal marsh and ocean as you glance out from our living room, porch and master bedroom.

We have four very famous ‘cousins’ that live just down the road. You will come to know us better by the company we keep: Beaufort (less than thirty minutes away), Hilton Head (less than an hour), and Charleston and Savannah (little over an hour’s drive). Go visit these beautiful historic Southern cities and then come home to Harbor Island. Prop your feet up and see if this thought doesn’t pass through your mind - ‘they were nice to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there. I like it here…..Harbor Island……,just fine for me’

As you can see from the sixteen pictures on the web site I am big believer in 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. VERY IMPORTANT! CLICK ON VIDEO UPPER LEFT ABOVE PICTURE. IT HELPS LINK TOGETHER ALL THE STILL PHOTOS. I don’t take lightly the responsibility to make sure you have the perfect location to meet your vacation needs. Please ask questions on the adjacant form. I'll be emailing you additional information as I answer your questions. After filling out the form click 'Email Owner'. Remember to check availability on our online calendar. I do keep it up to date. The rates are up to date as well and not subjected to change.

The area is known as Hollywood East because of the nearly 25 movies that were filmed in the area. There are ten of the DVDs in the condo of the most popular for your viewing pleasure. Please scroll down to the link below: 'More Information on Beaufort', click and fill out “Request Your FREE Destination Beaufort Visitor & Relocation Guide Now!” Buy any seafood from Gay’s Fish Market. (I will send you $10.00 if you will send me your receipt.) Gay's is located about a half mile from the gate on your way to Beaufort, left side. One last suggestion.....go to the movies. Not just any movie theatre. It's a Drive-in, one of two in South Carolina.

P.S. If a one bedroom would suit your needs better, please go to my sister's place (VRBO web site #60813).

HIGHLIGHTS IN REVIEW: 1)If you are requesting a lower price than our posted rate, then we need the web link to the lower priced one you are considering. 2)Check calendar for availability before submitting an inquiry. 3)Review the 16 pictures and video. 4)Read comments by past guests. 5)Thank you so much for considering our place.

I usually respond to an inquiry within 24 hours of receipt. If you haven't heard from me within that frame period, check the calendar for availability. I usually don't respond if we don't have availability. Next try your spam. Sometimes I get caught there. Last but not least call me at 704-896-1995 (Peter)

*I want to explain a little bit about the Headline. Yes, we are oceanfront but between us and the ocean there is a tidal marsh. When most people think of marsh they think of mud and mosquitos. That is certainly not the case here. It is dry with no mosquitos. Also please note one of the pictures on the listing where it shows the ocean view from our deck. Parris Island is about 14 miles from us. Please google Hunting Island State Beach, SC. It is incredible!! Must visit! Just two miles from us. We provide you and those traveling with you a pass to get in free. Last but not least downtown Beaufort is about 15 miles away. My wife and I have it on our short list of a retirement spot. You will love it!

ONCE YOU SUBMIT AN INQUIRY, YOUR FIRST COMMUNICATION WILL COME FROM VRBO/HOMEAWAY. VERY IMPORTANT TO READ IT CAREFULLY ESPECIALLY IN REGARD TO SECURITY.

About Peter Cole

My name is Peter Cole and I am the owner’s representative. I wear many hats: an oceanfront, resort, rental condo owner; property manager; rental agent; dog tender (That is Woody in the picture. Spends most of his day in the chair across from my desk watching me work.) and favorite; loving husband. As a Medicare card carrying senior, I look back over a full life. My chosen life ‘occupation’ (my Mother could never bring herself to call it a job) was to take teens on cross country camping trips; 3000 teens in all, spanning 33 years. My nephew Doug slipped into my shoes as I slipped into my retirement. My friends and relatives worried about my having too much time on my hands in retirement so they gave me their resort properties to manage. My reputation as a good manager/agent grew. Now 12 properties fill my stable. It was 1967 when I took ownership of my first rental property. In the years since, we have bought and sold 11. I come to you with a lot of experience. I do not take lightly the importance of your vacation. I want to match your needs with the properties I represent. There are 16 pictures, a video and lots of verbiage. I am here to answer all your questions.

Peter Cole purchased this condo in 2004

What makes this condo unique

Half the island is a nature preserve. Condo halfway between pool and ocean. Free pass to Hunting State Beach. Crowdless. Gated Community. 15 miles to downtown Beaufort.

Guestbook comments from the manager

You would certainly expect an owner to put the best possible spin as they tell you about their rental property. That is why it is so important to see what past guests have to say. They look at things a little more realistic. More like you do.

Harbor Island

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from Harbor Island last night and my two daughters are already planning the next trip. We really enjoyed the condo. It was very clean and convenient to Beaufort, Savannah, Charleston, and Hilton Head. We spent time every day at the beach and in the pool. Both pools were beautiful and very close to the condo. We loved Hunting Island. What an amazing State Park. The views from the deck are amazing. I will miss having my morning coffee out there every day. Harbor Island is really a great place to go on vacation. I highly recommend it!

Our unit was neatly cleaned and comfortable, close to the beach and the view of the marsh fascinating during the high and low tides. We enjoyed the Hunting Island pass where we collected seashells. We also traveled to various locations in the area on day trips and Harbor Island was a wonderfully relaxing place to be between our excursions. It is a very quiet and private resort.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Loved our week at Harbor Island! Barrier islands were so beautiful and fun to explore all the area. The condo had beautiful view of salt marsh and hunting island! Visit to Hunting Island State Park was wonderful...fishing, hiking, light house exploration and jungle like atmosphere. Condo was very clean and comfortable and affordable.

A Pleasurable Excursion

  • 4 of 5
We spent a great week in the low country. The property was very clean and comfortable. The view of the salt marsh from the living room and master bedroom was beautiful. The visits to Hunting Island for biking and beach walking in a Maritime Forest felt magical. Keep in mind that the price does not include taxes and security deposit. Our only complaint was not having internet in the condo but that wouldn't be a problem if you were truly trying to get away from it all. You can walk down the road to get wifi if needed. I would definitely go again but next time I would bring our kayaks!

Sightseeing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My week on Harbor Island was lovely - the condo was as advertised, clean and very quiet. Views of the marsh were fantastic. Most appreciative of the park pass to visit beautiful Hunting Island. So much gorgeous scenery to photograph! I had to upload my camera cards every night from all the pictures I took! This trip was a preliminary trip to check out the Beaufort area as a possible retirement home; I really hated to leave!

Great Valueu

  • 5 of 5
My sister, my mom, and I stayed at this property for 8 days. The view from the deck is so beautiful! You can see the tide come in and out in the marsh. The beach is a short walk away with such diverse wildlife. So many birds (pelicans, sandpipers, etc.)) and we also saw horseshoe crabs there. We went to the Huntington State Park just down the road while we were there. We climbed the lighthouse and walked on the beach. It was wonderful to see the different landscapes in the area. They also have a pier you can fish from. Gay's Seafood Market is a must if you love fresh seafood! Just a short distance away. The area also has major grocery stores about 20 - 30 minutes away. We all had a wonderful time. Wish we could have stayed....
