KID FRIENDLY FAMILY BEACH HOUSE!!

Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11

Are you looking for a kid-friendly family vacation?

Then you need to plan a lowcountry get-away at our beautiful beach house on Harbor Island, South Carolina. Our house overlooks a tidal creek and has gorgeous marsh views on one side and the beach is less than 200 yards on the other side. We have a fabulous floor plan that is ideal for large or multiple families. Our house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room, a large fully equipped kitchen, and comfortably sleeps 11 people.

The house has many kid-friendly features including a kids bedroom with bunkbeds, two bedrails, pack 'n play crib, high chair, booster seat, infant bouncy seat, a permanent baby gate for the stairs, an additional portable baby gate, and sand toys for the beach. There are also four adult beach chairs kept under the house for your use.

Harbor Island is a South Carolina barrier Island that has two and a half miles of PRIVATE beach in pristine condition. It is perfect for children because the beach is large, clean, and NEVER crowded. We are located within a gated community that has an olympic-size swimming pool, kiddie pool, volleyball court, basketball court, tennis courts, playground, and fitness center all within walking distance.

Harbor Island is situated between Edisto Island and Hilton Head Island. Nearby, are Hunting Island State Park and only 15 miles away is Historic Beaufort, which offers ample shopping, dining, horse drawn carriage tours, and numerous other activities. Other things to do in the area are golf, a family fun park, hiking, fishing, crabbing, shrimping, kayaking and much more!

Also, the abundant wildlife at Harbor Island will not go unnoticed. It is home for a variety of wildlife including dolphins, loggerhead turtles, alligators, ospreys, wood storks, and many other waterfowl and bird life, so do not forget your binoculars.

Enjoy yourself sipping a cold drink taking in the views on the large back deck or enjoy a romantic evening on your personal balcony off the master bedroom. Either way, come enjoy the relaxing experience.

JUST OK

  • 3 of 5
We came down to the area with another family, 4 adults 5 kids. We had plenty of room as far as the bedrooms are concerned and the two bathrooms were fine, except the fact that one of them was clogged and the other had mold on the shower curtain. Both were handled right away but it was a knock against the cleaning crew which I think doesn't do much. The top of the cabinets were filthy to be nice, four light bulbs were out, and a dryer vent that I am sure has never been touched and just waiting to go up in flames. It was the lack of the finishing touches that was disappointing. Rusty doors, paint peeling off the doors and stain on the deck coming up, and laminate counters that were incomplete ( trim was not finished exposing the wood) . It had a small fridge and a real lack of cooking tools that were nice in the 90's. A TV in one of the bedrooms had a crack so you could enjoy some extra green color while watching a show which is always great and no high definition as well. No wi-fi either. The porch is nice with a wonderful breeze most of the time. It is really close to the beach and fairly close to the pool that the neighborhood uses which the kids loved. The beach is awesome and really great for fishing ( shark, sting rays, white fish etc ). Very quiet and secluded. This place is just about location. We saw other properties that, on the outside, looked in better shape than this one. If it gets cleaned up and properly updated then maybe it would be great, but until then I think you could do better.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We appreciate your comments regarding the spaciousness of the house and the great proximity to the beach and pool. I wish you would have raised all your concerns to the rental agency so that they all could have been addressed immediately just as the shower curtain and clogged drain were resolved the same day. Our first priority is to provide a clean and comfortable beach house. To all future renters, as with any other house you rent, please bring all matters to the attention of the rental agency immediately.

All items mentioned in the comment were looked into by the rental agency. Some were resolved (light bulbs, dryer vent), others were noted for the cleaning crew (dust top of upper cabinets) and others were left to be resolved at the end of the rental season. The decks were stained in 2012 and are in great shape. The exterior doors were painted a few years ago and are due for a new coat of paint that will be applied in the off-season. They have a small amount of rust on them as a result of being in a coastal subtropical climate where all hardware wears out quicker and rusts faster than a non-subtropical climate (the rust noted is not excessive and does not take away from the appeal of staying here). No problems with the counter tops were found. The refrigerator is standard sized. The spare bedroom television, though damaged in one corner, we feel, is better appreciated than no TV at all in that room (we advertise three TVs, but actually have four). The other three TVs in the house have no defects. We do not advertise that we have Wi-Fi or hi-def, but Wi-Fi can be found right down the road at the clubhouse for those that do not have cell service for their devices.

We will continue to strive to provide the best home-away-from-home we can while being cost-conscious for all the hard-working people looking to escape to paradise. We love our family-oriented guests that are looking for an affordable, clean, comfortable beach house with the perfect location on a private island! Please contact the rental agency or the owner directly if you have any problems with your stay.

GREAT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We went on a couples weekend down to Harbor and had a fabulous time! Beautiful Island with lots of wildlife, quiet, but plenty to keep you busy. This house was a perfect location -- it backs up to a beautiful marsh with a nice backyard, but is still really close to the beach! The large deck in the back makes the house! We had a great time and renting was very easy! Looking forward to going back!
