Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Marsh was exactly as it was described on VRBO. We went to Harbor Island in February for my brother's graduation from Boot Camp at Parris Island. Parris Island was about a 30 minute drive from this property. It worked out great for us because we had small children with us who needed space to unwind after our long days on base. Robert was fantastic to work with. He provided great suggestions on beaches, restaurants, and general information about the house. We took the short drive to Hunting Island during some down time and viewed the lighthouse and the beautiful beaches. We went to a small store/sandwich shop one morning called the Marshy Tacky. The owner gave us information about the history of the islands and was very friendly. He also makes wonderful breakfast sandwiches. Thank you Robert for making our stay so enjoyable. We hope to visit again soon!

Serene & Pleasant Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful home was more than we could have imagined. Let me start off by saying the Robert more than prepares you for your visit before arriving. We were told about the area and all of it's beauties prior to our visit. He even made recommendations of where to eat and other entertainment. This home is in such a beautiful location on the island. My favorite part of the stay was relaxing on the screened back porch overlooking the marsh. During our stay my husband and I went to a local restaurant calle Saltus. It was one of the suggestions from Robert. The meal was wonderful and exceeded our expectations as well. I would highly recommend this rental to everyone. It was clean, roomy, and well stocked with utensils. The island is absolutely beautiful and the golf cart that comes along with the rental is perfect to get around in. We're already looking forward to our next stay on the island using this rental.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at harbor island several times. We actually lived in beaufort for almost five years. We come back often! We've grown out of the condos since we are now a family of six. This was perfect. It rained one day and the kids were able to play in the sand below the house. We bought a steamer and bought our own local shrimp. There is a really cute outdoor market outside the gate of Harbor Island (never used to be there). We hardly left the island! Robert was great with communication! We love Harbor Island! If you are into commercialized vacations this is not the place for you! If you like privacy and relaxation I wouldn't recommend anywhere else! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

A "Very Happy" Mother's Day

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Harbor Island and we were very impressed. There were 5 adults and a 3 year old and we all had a wonderful time. Robert was absolutely amazing to work with. He was very quick to reply to Emails and calls, and he offered some great tips to make our vacation more enjoyable. I have never felt so at home as I did in this house, and it definitely had all the amenities as stated. We had everything we needed. The golf cart was especially useful. I would highly recommend this house and/or renting from Robert.

A Wonderful Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

#6 Lake View Lane was certainly a great choice to spend a week of vacation; it is a beautiful home inside and out and has a gorgeous landscaped lot as well!

The home's interior was clean, nicely laid out and decorated quite well. Each of the bedrooms were an adequate size for two people with very comfortable beds and good quality linens, the two full baths had large counters were well lit and had nice showers,the kitchen & pantry were well stocked. Having a refrigerator with chilled water/ice maker, dishwasher & a washer/dryer were very nice features (we did think some of the pans could use replacing though and having a container of bar keepers friend under the sink with a box of SOS type pads would help to keep the steel pans looking new).

Our group had eight adults and thought there was adequate room whether you wanted to just relax at the end of the day in the large living room with it's vaulted ceiling, sit at the breakfast bar and use your laptop or enjoy the glider on the screened porch off the kitchen overlooking the marsh area.

Harbor Island has more than enough to interest everyone in the group; the beach and racquet club has a pool for the adults and one for small children's there are showers/changing room in the washrooms adjacent to both pools and the nice playground. There are two exercise rooms, two tennis courts & you are able to check out equipment to play basketball, horseshoes or croquet - They also rent bikes & sell a variety of items/snacks.

There is a dock for crabbing & fishing if your are interested in trying your hand at it or you could just enjoy walking along the many scenic streets. Of course there is also a nice 2.5 mile long private beach to enjoy as well!

The stretch golf cart golf cart at the home was also a very convenient and fun way to explore the island, take over to the beach & racquet club or down to the beach.

Robert was such a pleasure to work with when organizing the reservation & he was also very attentive to any needs we may have had after our arrival; we highly recommend staying at this home if you have a chance. Because of how well he handled everything we would have no reservations whatsoever with staying at one of the other properties Robert manages on Harbor island - Thanks for a great week of vacation Robert!

Great location, Great house

  • 4 of 5

Robert provided us with a great house and an ideal location. Harbor Island is a great, quiet community that was a perfect destination for our families. The house was as advertised and the golf cart was a hit with our young kids. Robert was extremely prompt on his responses to our questions regarding the community and the house prior to our arrival. The house was clean, tidy, and provided an ideal resting place for the kids between stops at the beach and the pools. On future trips to Harbor, we will definitely be contacting Robert again.
