Harbor Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

RELAX and unwind in this comfortable and welcoming condo. The condo is located in the private and gated Harbor Island community, named a Top 10 Secret Beach by Southern Living Magazine. Enjoy your stay lolling either by the pool or on the beautiful and practically deserted beach.

Close to historic Beaufort (the country's Happiest Small Town, according to a 2013 Coastal Living Magazine poll) and it's unique shops, excellent restaurants and wonderful sights, there are plenty of things to do and see. If you don't want to go into town, you can spend your time on island strolling on the beach, catching hermit crabs, finding sand dollars, relaxing with a good book on the deck, working out in the Clubhouse gym, swimming in one of three pools, or lazing on the couch and watching cable TV.

Harbor Island is a small gated community located near Hunting Island State Park and Fripp Island. The island is surrounded by the ocean and Saint Helena Sound. The area has great recreation with several beautiful golf courses nearby and plentiful fishing, crabbing, and shrimping.

About Elaine McCreary

You won't find any camels on Harbor Island, but there are lots of other things to keep you entertained!

Elaine McCreary purchased this condo in 2010

Why Elaine McCreary chose Harbor Island

Harbor Island is like no other place I've ever been to. It's quiet, beautiful, and oh so relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located on the second floor, but there is an elevator available. Since it is an end unit, you'll enjoy plenty of sunlight and ocean breezes throughout the rooms. Washers and dryers are available on each floor. The beach is a 5 minute walk and one pool is a 3 minute walk from the condo.

Great Relaxing Get Away for two!

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing quite get away for my husband and I. We walked the private beach twice a day and one of the mornings we say horseshoe crabs mating and dolphin feeding close to shore! We went on the historic Beaufort tour on a horse carriage ride which was very informative and great for getting pictures. Lots of great restaurants to grab a bite on the waterfront with out door seating. We also did a day trip to Savanah, GA and went on the Trolley Historic tour. I would recommend going in the morning so that you can get off at the river front and have lunch and shop for a while. It is 1 1/2 hour drive each way. The condo had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. I would make sure to bring your beach towels and a small cooler. Hunting Island State Park has a nice beach and lots of trails to hike. We took a picnic lunch.

I wanted a place on the beach for my husband and I and my adult daughter. This place was perfect!! It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The boardwalk was an easy walk to the beach and I was blessed with a gorgeous sunrise!! Lots of great restaurants and shops in Beaufort. Savannah was an easy day trip for my favorite pralines with a slight detour to the drive through wildlife preserve to see the gators. Thanks for helping us make memories!

Very peacefull get away!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything was exactly as represented.

We are a family of four with two teenagers. The kids slept on the pull out couch, and my husband and I slept in the master bedroom.

The condo has one shower, but two bathrooms, which meant no one had to wait and all the girls could get ready at the same time.

The kitchen is well appointed. We ate breakfast every day at the condo, and packed a lunch for the beach most days. And we even ate dinner in twice. I was even able to bake cookies. The condo has everything you need to boil seafood, make pasta, etc.

All the linens were super quality, the bed was very comfortable and the environment was relaxing.

The wifi in the area is something that you must purchase, and it is very weak, so if you do need to have contact with the outside world I recommend bringing a mobile hot spot.

The beach is a private community, there is no commerce on Harbor Island. Which makes the beach very peaceful and private. There is an extreme difference between high tide and low tide. There are breakers off shore, so the waves are very tame. This is a great beach for young children because the surf is not rough. But even my teenagers had a good time swimming, and could boogie board when the tide was coming in. Mostly they just had a good time looking at all the sea life. When the tide goes out there are tidal pools and we saw sand dollars, star fish, lots of hermit crabs, fish, even a small baby shark. When the tide came in the dolphins swam with in 10 yards of us. We enjoyed walking along the beach. We also had fun flying a kite, the beach was not too populated so we could fly a kite with out worrying about it hitting anyone.

The one day that it rained we drove to Hilton Head which is 45 minutes away, and did some outlet shopping.

I promise you will not be disappointed if you lease this vacation spot!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters and I had a wonderful experience on Harbor Island! The condo was beautiful, comfortable and plenty spacious enough for 4 people. Everything was top notch- furniture, linens, and a well-stocked kitchen! It rained a lot (which we love!) so we spent a lot of time playing games, reading, watching movies and hanging out on the cozy screened porch with the great views. It was very relaxing! Despite the rain, we did manage to hit the beach and pool every day, go for bike rides and explore nearby Hunting Island (I highly recommended it!). The close proximity to the beach boardwalk and pool was very convenient.

Elaine was a pleasure to work with and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again and hope to do so very soon!
