Overview

Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Our family fell in love with Harbor Island day one. Then, we found the perfect beach home on Ocean Marsh. You get all of the scenery and feel of the beach with the tropical feel of palm trees, ferns, and moss covered trees. We vacations at our beach home often. We have family gathering, golf weekends, fishing contests, wildlife viewing, and fun nights gazing at the unbelievable number of stars as we wind down the day on the second floor deck.

if you are looking for a place to reconnect as a family, experience the low country, have a great mix of beach time, nature walks, sunsets, and great food and shopping destinations. Harbor Island is the place to be!

Even More than We Expected!

  • 5 of 5
Although the photos of the house and views are great on this website, the home and location is even better than expected. The ocean view is much closer than we thought it would be but it would not have mattered had it been at a greater distance. The marsh is constantly changing and so entertaining. We were even treated to double rainbows over the marsh one evening as we sat on the deck. The house is wonderful and everything we needed was there, including some things we did not know we needed. The neighboring house on one side is close but screened well by great landscaping and the other side was even more private. The entire neighborhood is very quiet and life seems to move at a much slower pace. Everyone, without exception, in the community was very friendly. There is a golf cart and bikes are available at the house, but we like to walk. When we went out to walk our two fairly large dogs, we were greeted with welcoming smiles from everyone; something I had worried about before arriving. It seems to be a dog and family loving community. There are sensible rules in the community - dogs on leash and no excessive barking for example, which helps to make this community so special. We checked out each of several beach access areas and they are all very different. You can go from a quiet area where there are great sunsets and fishing, another where there is a wonderfully flat beach lined by beautiful houses, or you can go to an even more quiet area where the marshes are behind the very wide beach at low tide. We found it hard to leave the house and its wonderful view, but we enjoyed a trip to Hunting Island, found some great seafood (from Gay Seafood) to cook at the house, and met friendly people everywhere that we went. The guy at a local market, Marsh Tacky, asked if he could send out dog bones when he noticed our dogs in the car. There is nothing negative that we can think of and we hope to return soon. Thanks for sharing your home and providing such a wonderful experience where our dogs were also very welcome!

Best Vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time. We have been checking out beaches for the past few years, trying to find "our perfect getaway"...and we did!! By day three, the kids were asking me to book it for next year's trip. We will definately be back. The house was located in a beautiful and serene setting right on the marsh. The views were breathtaking. Pictures are exactly what you will find....no surprises and no disappointments. There was so much wildlife!! We saw dolphins, alligators (even some babies), multiple birds nesting...just soooo much natural beauty!! The golf cart made getting to the beach a breeze...not to mention it was great for just cruising around and taking in the scenery of the island. The beach was fantastic. During low tide you could walk and explore for hours (keep sunscreen handy) and during high tide, the water was perfect for splashing around.
Just down the road a ways is Marsh Tacky...a must for a great sandwich!! And the owners are soooo nice.
We also enjoyed kayaking with Kim and David from Beaufort Kayak tours.
It was the best vacation ever!!!

SO much nature!!!! Loved it!!!

  • 4 of 5
We just spent Memorial Day week here. The house is in a great place on the Island but not close to the beach. It's VERY private. We were on the Marsh away from all the beachfront villas and homes so no crowds. The only bad thing were nighttime insects but we expected that on a marsh. A place nearby sells bug spray. Tacky Marsh's-take a left when you leave the Harbor Island community and u will see it. The spray is all natural..good for no see-ums, nats, mosquitoes, and red bugs. We didn't see it until the day before we left but the owners of the shop said it works VERY well. So definitely get some if you are going to be spending time on the back decks in the evenings. It wasn't super bad, just enough to keep you inside. We looked at the stars when it got really dark from the top deck and it was amazing!!! Stars upon stars :o)
My 6 year old loved the hammock swing and there were plenty of comfie chairs to sit in outside. Loved the use of the golf cart but the brakes were bad. Don't wait till you get to a stop sign to stop or you may be run over like I was! Still, was nice to have to drive to the beach access points. Mostly, we used the far right beach access. This area wasn't crowded at all. The far left access was a dead end with a gorgeous cedar tree. Lots of fishing going on there but it's on the sound and not on the ocean. This is the best spot for late in the day and to watch the sunset. The far right access was good during the day for the ocean.
We saw So much. I have been to the Florida beaches many times and never saw as much wildlife as I saw on Harbor Island. Everyday we saw something new and my little girl LOVED it. We saw baby alligators, dolphins close to the shore, Osprey, Pelicans, Sand pipers, Cranes, Turtles, Loggerhead turtle nests, hundreds of hermit crabs, sand crabs, hundreds of dead and alive horseshoe crabs, saw someone catch several sizes of sharks and stingrays, raccoons, found 4 sand dollars the size of an adults palm, a conch shell, fiddler crabs, blue crabs, whiting, beautiful driftwood and shells, whole jellyfish, shrimp, and even a baby octopus!!! If you are looking for a nature adventure, this is definitely the place for it! Just be careful while you are out far on the sandy islands and tide pools because once the tide starts coming in, it comes in fast!
We spent one day at Hunter's Island and it was beautiful as well. Bigger waves there and the water was clearer.
The house was well kept and the locals were friendly :o)

We had the golf cart serviced, no more thrill rides :)

Our favorite part of going to Harbor Island is the natural setting and all the wildlife, looks like you got to see them all!

Thanks Again

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our stay and loved it ! The house was comfortable for 4 adults, the views of the marsh and ocean from the decks are awesome. Having use of golf cart, bicycles, and community pool really add to the enjoyment of your visit. You can walk forever on the beach during low tide, see beautiful birds and wildlife, and also enjoy Beaufort within an easy 20 minute drive. Hunting island is just 5 min away. The owners listing and description of property are accurate. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the lowcountry and stay in a beautiful, well maintained, comfortable home and neighborhood. Watch the sunrise from your bed !

Owner's Response: Thank You!

It was a pleasure to have you as a guest and we appreciate your your very kind review. At low tide you can walk forever on the beach, its one of our favorite things to do. We have also spotted Eagles and Wood Storks the last couple times we were there. The Ospry were nesting near the pier, very cool.

Thanks again and enjoy your summer.

Notes:
Our beach home has full marsh and ocean view. Our decks overlook a beautiful marsh area with the ocean directly after the marsh. You get the best of both worlds. The beauty of the natural marsh with the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. Hear the ocean roar, watch the waves roll-in while wildlife engages with the marsh and small waterways within. At high tide, the water comes within feet of our back deck. Simply fantastic.
