We are native to West Virginia and currently reside in Pittsburgh, PA, until we can retire to our Harbor Island home!

Mia Moran-Cooper purchased this house in 2010

My husband and I have enjoyed the Low Country around Beaufort, SC for many years. We find the whole area, dripping with Spanish moss and Southern charm, to be so romantic and enchanting, full of historic interest and unique Gullah culture. There is something here for everyone to enjoy: If you get bored with the natural beauty, unspoiled beaches, nature center, trails and lighthouse at Hunting Island, there is shopping, dining, carriage rides and playing at the waterfront park in downtown Beaufort; the Marine Corp Parris Island and Marine Corp Air Station and more. Nearby Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC offer great day day trips. In April 2010, we just could not pass up the opportunity to buy a two-year old home of our own at Harbor Island where we watch dolphins follow the shrimp boats and enjoy yet another private beach where we have watched egret nest eggs hatch, followed sea turtles and collected our share of horseshoe crab shells!

Includes use of 2 unlimited car passes for nearby Hunting Island State Park (usually $5/per person/per day entry fee but you will get your whole carload in for free each day with our pass) Includes use of all the Harbor Island amenities: private beach, swimming pool (April 1-November 1) tennis, basketball, gym, crabbing/shrimping dock and more

Great space for 6 adults. Loved gathering around the spacious dining table for eating, card playing and laughing together! The house had everything we could need and is well decorated. There is so much to see and do in the area. We ran out of time to check out everything. Great food too! We really enjoyed the Foolish Frog for dinner - twice. Guys loved golf at Parris Island and Lady's Island.

Even though it was the week of the "polar storm" we had an awesome time. Our home was exceptionally clean, cheerfully decorated and we were snug and warm playing games, enjoying the beautiful views from the deck windows.later in the week we ventured outside as the weather warmed up, went to the beach which was a very short distance away and we so appreciated the use of the golf cart. We could not have found another place that suited us as well. There were 6 adults and 3 children in our group and we did not feel crowded at all. There were lots of movies, books for all ages and information about local attractions which im sorry to say we did not get to enjoy as a couple of days we attended the Marine graduation festivities at Parris Island.
Mia ( one of the owners) was so helpful and friendly, she even had a back up plan for us at another home next door just in case the water pipes were frozen from the unusual cold weather. Thank you Mia for your hospitality.

Our oldest son recently graduated from Parris Island and we were in search of a property that was comfortable enough for our extended family to join us for this momentous occasion. This was the perfect place. The home was everything it was described to be. The location was beautiful. Waking up overlooking the water was such a tranquil scene. We had 5 adults and 2 teenagers and there was plenty of room for everyone. We didn't spend as much time at the house as we would have liked to because we spent most of our time at Parris Island stalking and spending time with our new Marine but what time we were there it was a very comfortable. The home was well maintained and the property owners were extremely helpful in answering any questions we had. We didn't get to do a lot of sight seeing but the owners provided us with an amazing wealth of information to make a visitor feel like a local. We greatly appreciated their advice on where to shop, dine, and little hints to make our stay more enjoyable.
We look forward to visiting this area again and staying at this property with our family. The only draw back with having 2 teenagers was the lack of televisions in rooms other than the living area but that did give us more time to communicate which was very nice for us parents.

Wonderful time with my parents, my sister and our four nieces to experience the Marine Corp graduation ceremony, November 2013. The view was beautiful from the balconies and the third floor. Beautifully decorated throughout, Lots of space to hang out together for a movie. Space for us to spread out to read and relax, come together for games and family fun. And I loved the kitchen, cheerful coffee mugs and plenty of dishes and seating for all of
us. We caught some fish too! Our weather was not great but we had a fantastic
experience! Beautiful home ! Gated and safe area for walks and adventure.

Just Wonderful!

Our stay in South Carolina was all about attending our nephew’s Marine Corp graduation at Parris Island and getting to the base from the house was an easy 20 minute drive. But we got so much more than a convenient drive – the house and the area was just AMAZING! The home sits on a lagoon with one of the most awesome views of the bridge spanning the waterway and we watched the shrimp boats navigate through the bridge and drag their nets through the inter-coastal waters. It was hard to pull ourselves away from the views we had on the second floor deck!
The house accommodated everyone in our party and there was something for everyone to enjoy – no matter their age. My brother and the kids really enjoyed fishing off the little back dock. There were movies and games during down times for the teens. We absolutely loved being able to drive the golf cart and ride bikes to the club house to hang at the pool and to the private beach where the girls explored the tidal pools. We took advantage of the free passes and the 2 mile proximity to Hunting Island State Park for the ocean waves and to climb the lighthouse. On the second trip we made sure to walk the marsh boardwalk and got a “crabbing” lesson from some fishermen at the end of the dock. We took our new knowledge to the crab dock in our gated community and had loads of fun even though we caught few crabs.
The house was beautiful inside and out just as the pictures show. The kitchen was spacious enough to allowed several folks to prepare food at the same time and an eating area with room for all of us to eat together at the table or counter area. There were 2 decks that over looked the canal so the adults could enjoy watching the flying fish and sunsets away from the kids. Most of all it was located in a spectacular community that is home to a variety of wildlife, nesting water birds, turtles, and especially alligators. The alligators are wild and protected and really wanted to have nothing to do with us. However, “going gator spotting” became a favorite pastime and catching a few sightings in the lagoons and at the crab dock was truly phenomenal.
To say we all had a wonderful time would be an understatement; none of us were happy to leave when our short stay was over. We can’t wait to go back and hope to plan a longer stay next summer. The owners were so helpful and accommodating we can’t thank them enough for letting us stay at their wonderful home!
