About The Owner

I am a SC native and love the peacefulness that Harbor Island offers! Uncrowded beaches and nature at its best! The swing bed on the screen porch is my favorite spot! My entire extended family loves Harbor too ... our children and grandchildren love the beach and the fact Mom and Dad and actually sit on the beach and not worry about the crowds!

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose St. Helena Island

Our house is located on the best part of the beach at Harbor Island! Some houses literally sit in the water at high tide and some are so far off in the distance from the beach that it's a trek to get to the beach. We have beautiful beach in front and a boardwalk from the house to the beach. We are also within walking distance to the Beach and Racquet Club.

What makes this house unique

Large 5 bedroom house with 1/2 bath on ground level for those trips in from the beach! Great house for families to share and lots of decks! The best screened porch for watching the dolphins and the shrimp boats!

EXACTLY as Advertised

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son, and his fiance, and I just returned from a week on Harbor Island. Having stayed in a variety of vacation rentals over the last several years, we found this particular trip noteworthy for various reasons. First, how many times does the advertising and hype live up to one's expectations? Perhaps it's just our experiences, but the occurrence is rare. However, in this instance, the location, house, and owners all exceeded our expectations. Harbor Island is EXACTLY as described. We felt as though we were on our own private island. The area is truly the exact opposite of the commercialized Hilton Head. It is peaceful, serene, and definitely isolated from the rest of the world. While one doesn't have to drive an unreasonable distance for shopping and entertainment, it is certainly not out the back door. The wildlife is abundant and mesmerizing. The last few evenings we were there, dozens of dolphins played along the shoreline for hours. Next, the home was the classic, traditional East Coast beachhouse. Its decor and oceanfront location were, once again, EXACTLY as described. The best way I can capture the essence of where we stayed would be to say from the moment we walked in until the moment we left, we never felt like we were in a rental. We truly felt like we were in a "home." Last the owner we communicated with was simply wonderful and fulfilled our expectations EXACTLY as we envisioned them. From the initial contact inquiring about the home -- and all through our stay, she responded to all questions and concerns promptly, courteously, and much more like a friend than an owner. From her advice on securing reservations to where to eat, she shared her personal and invaluable insights. Because of her willingness to open up her beautiful home, she provided us with some cherished memories.

Beautiful home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We had three families with 6 active children. This house was perfect! Every morning we could walk down the private boardwalk to our own portion of beach. There were no other families in "our space" meaning the kids could run about with us worrying about them bothering others. The the photos of the house do not do it justice -- it is like a Pottery Barn ad! 4 children shared the two double beds and the other two slept in the twin bedroom while the adults all had a master en-suite (one of these bedrooms actually shares a bath with the main living area but we locked the door so it became a private bathroom. This worked fine because there is also a beautiful bathroom on the beach level and in and evening the kids would use their own bathroom (which is very big)). The outside shower is perfect -- we rarely actually took a shower indoors because the outdoor one was so convenient! Because the house is beachfront (not beach view -- don't be confused!) we could leave our stuff at the end of the boardwalk each day which was ideal. I would hate to think of schlepping all our stuff too and from the beach every day. Most mornings we spent at the beach. The weather could not be more perfect at the time of year we went (June) because, though hot, the sea breeze means you just feel perfect. The sea is actually warm! We collected lots of wonderful shells and horseshoe crabs and little silver fish and live sand dollars - all kinds of stuff! After cooking lunch in the very well equipped kitchen (there are also two fridge-freezers to minimize store trips) we would take the golf cart (or make the 5 minute walk) to the beach club to swim or play tennis. We also did several day excursions -- Beaufort is only 20 min drive away and Savannah is only 1.5 hours and Hunting Island State park is just 10 min drive away. So much to do. Our boys also enjoyed visiting the marine base and museum. As for the owner -- she is wonderful. She answered all our questions quickly and was super helpful as we were planning our trip. The price includes cleaning so all you have to do when you leave is strip the beds and start a load of laundry. I cannot recommend Harbor Island and this house enough. We are already planning our trip next year!

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 10 just returned from at week at this house. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave! The swing bed is wonderful and we loved looking at the night sky from the upper porch. Having two refrigerators came in really handy too. We made good use of the grill. This location is so much more relaxing than Hilton Head.
