Harbor Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1 - 3)

Welcome to Harbor Island, SC, and thank you for checking our website for information on our rental home.

Harbor Island is a private barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean 15 miles east of Beaufort, SC. Our gated community is located on Saint Helena Sound and it features a 2.5 mile sandy beach, and 24/7 security.

Harbor Island is a wonderful place to observe nature. Native and migrating birds can be found on our island depending on the season. We have an active, volunteer staffed, loggerhead turtle protection program. These volunteers assist in the survival of the species by monitoring activities as the turtles return to their birthplace in the Spring to lay their eggs. Throughout the summer and early fall, baby turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean. And, if you look slightly offshore, sometimes you’ll see dolphins playing in the shallow waters of our beaches.

Harbor Island has lots of outdoor activities, i.e. fishing, crabbing, ‘shrimping’ or boating. For those who prefer freshwater activities, the BRC (Beach & Racquet Club) offers a large and a kiddy pool, a souvenir and snack shop, and a beach volleyball area. In addition, we have tennis, basketball and shuffleboard courts. There’s also a horseshoe pit in the fenced in community area, and, although it’s fenced, no dogs are allowed.

For those seeking a more structured workout, our fitness center at the BRC features a weight room, two treadmills, and two stationary bicycles. Don’t forget the bike rentals. Upon your arrival to our island, check with the BRC for bike rentals and questions about any of the activities listed above.

Our condo is on the 3rd floor (top floor) and it's accessible by elevator. You'll find our one bedroom home uniquely positioned to offer you wonderful sunrises and spectacular sunsets. The Sunset Lounge, located just outside our front door, features a 3rd floor outdoor living/viewing area that no other unit in our building has.

The sole bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and full bath. Another half bath is just steps down the hall. Additional sleeping accommodations are on the sleeper sofa in the den. Maximum occupancy is 2 people.

You'll love the comfortable feel of our home. Snuggle up with a book in the corner chaise or spend an afternoon at one of three nearby pools or our not-so-crowded beach.

Smoking is not allowed in the home. But, feel free to enjoy your tobacco products on the screened porch or at the Sunset Lounge.

Enjoy your stay and please come back again.

We are both retired and live in upstate SC.

Mary Ann purchased this villa in 2002

Our home is exactly what you want it to be: comfortable, quiet, romantic, the list is yours to choose from. It's close to great beaches and golf courses and just in between Charleston and Savannah. Harbor is truly a community for people who love the beach.

Although there are no golf courses on our island, you'll find plenty to do. We have bike rentals, tennis courts, a gym, three pools, sunrises, sunsets, and peace and quiet. Design your own vacation. But, make sure you come back for another visit.

We love Harbor's beach and it changes from season to season. In spite of the changes, one thing will remain. There's always a large sandbar that goes off into the east that will allow you to walk so far off shore that you can look back and see the Hunting Island lighthouse.

If you, like us, are golfers, you've got the courses at Fripp Island that are just 10 minutes away. We like the public course at Parris Island. It's a real treat to visit the island for golf as well as to visit the Marine Corp Museum.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
We arrived right behind a hurricane and were a bit worried but found that we were in good shape with the weather, and even better shape with our condo. This condo was clean, nicely decorated and located so close to the pool and beach. The screened in porch was a great addition as we were able to stay out late without the threat of bugs and such. And even with it being a holiday weekend, there were not many people on the beach at any given time....bonus! Super close drive to Hunting Island, which offers great trails, nice untouched beach access and the lighthouse was really pretty. Both porches offered great views and we had everything we needed in the condo. It was great, peaceful and all around a great vacation. OH, also we took a late night walk through the resort after dark and looked at all the houses, pretty cool but its DARK. No street lights due to the sea turtle hatchings. Fantastic communication with the owner, which really put me at ease. Thanks for a great stay, I needed it!

Owner's Response: Wonderful. Thank you! I think you picked a great time to be there. After the hurricane traveled further north, SC was blessed with cooler, drier air. Just perfect for a Holiday Weekend. Come again!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This condo was perfect for my small family. The owners are nice and responsive, the condo was well equipped and the views of the ocean can be seen while in the kitchen, living room and of course from the screened in porch. The screened in porch is an awesome amenity that you don't see a lot. We thoroughly enjoyed our getaway. The island is beautiful and the beaches are perfect for a toddler because of how big they are and how few people are on them. Total relaxation!

Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay at this perfectly-appointed condo! Everything we needed, spacious, quiet, clean, and an incredible view! Well-stocked kitchen. Laundry facilities just down the hall were clean and easily accessible. The owner was prompt and professional during our booking and was gracious and accommodating when a family medical emergency prompted a change in dates for our stay. The ocean view screened in balcony was perfect for morning coffee and sun and the "front porch" balcony area was perfect for evening beverages and a beautiful sunset! We hated to leave!

Harbor Island is a gem! Beautiful beach, pristine, and oh so quiet! Grounds are well-maintained and secure. Just minutes from Hunting Island State Park and a relaxing fifteen minute drive over marshes and water to include St Helena island, Lady's Island and the quaint town of Beaufort for plenty of shopping, dining, history and a gorgeous waterfront park in downtown Beaufort - park yourself in a bench swing and enjoy some ice cream!

Fell in love with the area and the gracious people we met on our daily adventures. Highly recommended. THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful " home away from home"!

Nice relaxing getaway before we receive our new bundle of joy. It was a little cold during our stay but the accommodations were great so it still turned out to be a wonderful vacation. We had a few good days on the beach and also got to visit our favorite beach on the eastern seaboard... hunting island which is right next door. A short mile by kayaks.
