Overview

Harbor Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

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

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. 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. Our '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. 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 our home. But, feel free to enjoy your tobacco products on the screened porch or at our Sunset Lounge.

Enjoy your stay and please come back again.

About Mary Ann

We are both retired and live in upstate SC.

Mary Ann purchased this villa in 2002

Why Mary Ann chose Harbor Island

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Peaceful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful condo that feels like home the moment you walk through the front door. Tastefully decorated and well maintained with the coziest couch in which to relax. Love the kitchen and the huge open counter that lets you view the ocean while you cook. The screened porch is a wonderful perch to watch the sunrise and the tides coming in or going out. Feel in love with Harbor Island and the large beach for walking away the stresses of life. Do not miss this wonderful condo for your own time to get away from it all!

Wonderful winter escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I left cold, cold Pennsylvania and spent a beautiful, fun-filled month here. Condo is so clean and welcoming, with everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time here. Morning coffee on the screened porch and then an easy walk to the uncrowded, beautiful beach. Loved going to nearby Hunting Island State Park...the ride to the beach reminds us of a tropical forest and then, the BEACH! It is so pristine and uncrowded...found many unusual shells and driftwood there. Ate at Johnson's Creek Tavern and Bella Luna...very close by, and then spent several afternoons in Beaufort, shopping and eating...Luther's and Plum, all very good! Sat on the swings at the Waterfront, enjoying the view and spent an afternoon at the Beaufort Day Spa, courtesy of a gift certificate from our daughters...very best massage, ever!! There are many thrift and second-hand stores in the area, if that is of interest to you. Already thinking about things to do on our next visit! I would definitely hope to stay in this condo again...Mary Ann was very nice and easy to contact!

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!
