Overview

Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy Ocean/Wildlife AND Go Shop/Eat Out. The Pink House will be waiting :-)

WELCOME to Paradise! You will LUV our "Pink House" By Th Sea on the corner @ #1 Windjammer LN. You will be VERY CLOSE to the Ocean you see. Let me assist how to get there: Proceed over our front yard sidewalk. Then Cross the LAZY and QUIET street. Straight ahead is Access Path #5, or Access #6 Left or Access #4 Right- All Close by. Soon you're at the Beach where you can SWIM, SUN, WALK, JOG and RIDE A BIKE.

The Entire Re-Painting of the Outside of Our PINK HOUSE was completed today 3/24/15! It's BEAUTIFUL :-) Of importance - our house is renting Very Quickly 2015. It is a Great Option for Family/Friends Vacations, Work Retreat or place to stay when a Son/Daughter graduates from nearby Parris Island. Please checkout 20 Renter Reviews (All 5 Stars) at our site: 2 are 2015, 11 were 2014, 7 were 2013/2012.

Stop & take in the awesome Harbor Island feeling. There's lots of fun things to do: A fantastic BEACH, SWIM and RACQUET CLUB, Awesome NATURE. ALSO there are lots of places close by selling Fresh Seafood (take home to cook:-) ALSO checkout the South Carolina Low Country shopping, sight seeing, History, Golf and Dine Out options.

Back at the House- the VIEWS you see of the nearby Ocean from inside, on the adjoining screened porch, or on one of several outside decks are AWESOME. Because you are so close, you will often hear Ocean Waves softly crash to the beach and the Sweet Harbor Island winds blow! Add the Palmetto Palms, Sega Palms, Sea Oats, Tropical Grasses, Flowers and exciting Wildlife - you will smile often:-)

Lets begin with the layout of the Main Floor inside our clean and well furnished house: The Great Room includes: a very large beautiful Wood dining table with 10 matching chairs, the fully equipped open Kitchen (has 4 Wood counter bar stools that match the table), comfy lounging Chairs and Couch and TV. Get ready to relax even more: open the sliding door in the great room- step onto a spacious screened porch with Table and Chairs ( take the time to kick back, relax and take in the beautiful Ocean view! )

Satellite TV, Free WI-FI and Free Long Distance are included.

More about 5 BRs- all which have a Queen Size Bed: The main floor includes 4 of the 5 Bedrooms (#s 2-5) and 4 Bath Rooms and Office with Desk/chairs. Proceed thru office to the Upstairs (Master Bedroom Suite #1) which covers the entire upstairs: Details: theres a private front deck with a breath taking Ocean View, Huge Bath Room, walk in closet AND rear sitting area and private rear Deck which showcases Harbor Islands Marsh Land or nearby Harbor River. All 5 Bedrooms include a Closet.

THE UPSTAIRS MASTER SUITE, which includes BR #1, has especially great views. In the morning from the front deck (consider a cup of coffee) watch the Sunrise peeping slowly over the Ocean.. its often amazing. THEN in the evening from the rear sitting area or back deck (Choose a beverage of your choice) gaze out over the Islands Marsh. The South Carolina Low Country often features Awesome Colorful Sunsets.

The maximum parking allowed at our house is 5 cars. The paved Cement Driveway can park 3-4 cars. To park additional cars and to make getting cars in and out easier, park some of your cars in the VERY LARGE completely paved cement garage located under the house that holds 3 cars AND which has LOTS OF additional space. There are 2 Automatic Opening Car Doors to get into the Completely Enclosed Garage under the house. The Garage includes an outdoor shower and is a safe place to keep your bikes and beach stuff. VERY IMPORTANT the heavy duty lattice (built to cover from the ceiling to the ground) lets in light, but keeps out animals THEREFORE- the Side Door and 2 Garage Doors MUST BE CLOSED each night so hungry Racoons are kept out)

INCLUDED WHEN YOU RENT- just a short walk (Golf Cart Available at reasonable fee) is the SWIM and RACQUET CLUB. Amenities are: A beautiful Olympic Size Pool (OPEN DAILY Mon-Sunday 9:00-6:00) (view sunset - then gates are locked). (Reopens Aprox. April 1st- Open Til November 1st) Enjoy the small Retail Store which includes some Island Gifts, Snacks and a few Necessity Groceries. Also theres volleyball, basketball, a childrens pool, swing set, playground, fitness Room, Weight Room, Golf Chipping Yard and Tennis.

We have a wonderful breath taking 3 mile sandy BEACH. Because we are part of a series of Sea Islands, the Surf on our Harbor Island has mild waves. The best swimming is as the tide is coming in and as the tide is going out. For more direct Ocean Waves visit Hunting Island State Park, which by car is aprox 1 1/2 mile away. A small fee per car (-0- cost for 1 of your cars with use of our Pass). Be sure to go up to the top of the only Light House in South Carolina that can be climbed. Also visit the Nature Center and hike the trails. Then go out to its wonderful beach: They also have a really great fishing pier ( or fish on our beach ) SC Fishing license is needed when you fish.

NATURE on Harbor Island has been discussed in many Magazines. You will see horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, watch dolphins play, see beautiful birds fly around and land on the beach to play/eat. Enjoy the Shrimp Boats as they slowly pass. You will hear stories about Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting in the sand dunes- THEY ARE TRUE. Harbor Island has guidelines to help protect them til they are ready to return to the Ocean. Around Harbor Island you will see terns, pelicans, egrets, herons, osprey, seagulls, cranes, other birds flying and sleeping in the Rookeries. Nature on the island also includes rabbits, fox, raccoons, alligators, snapping turtles, deer and other wildlife.

Whether Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall - Harbor Island is a great place for a relaxing trip! You will find milder temperatures than many U.S. destinations. 70* weather is forecast for 3/20/2015) Several recent days have been in the 70's. It may get slightly cooler - but 60* in past years has been the AVG Winter Temp. View H.I. moderate temperatures @ http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/29920

About John Ellis & Linda

Husband & Wife, John Ellis and Linda, live in Alexandria, VA. After traveling to many beautiful beaches, we fell in love with Harbor Islands beauty and tranquility and our Pink House, which we purchased June 2012. The low country has a story we hope you will learn about when you stay at our wonderful Beach House.

John Ellis & Linda purchased this house in 2012

Why John Ellis & Linda chose Harbor Island

This beach house made us feel at home instantly. The Ocean is SO CLOSE. The house has spacious rooms. The many decks showcase the beauty of the Ocean and the distant River & Marshes. You can swim, or just relax at our Beautiful Private Beach or the Swim & Racquet Club/Pool. Our Island Community includes 24 Hour Gated Security in & out. This rental house is a great location and value for your vacation dollars.

What makes this house unique

We suggest you Scroll this map to see that we actually are OH SO close to the Ocean seen from our Porch & Decks. Harbor Island is a fantastic location for all beach and nature lovers!

Located on a wonderful Island with 3 miles of private beach, our guest have also enjoyed the wild life which includes: many birds (Harbor Island has been named an IBA or Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society) The pace of life is very laid back and peaceful. Enjoy the Ocean & Wildlife - then go Shop & Eat Out & Enjoy the available sports activities the area offers! Our Pink House will be waiting :-)

Just returned from a wonderful time at the Pink House! It is a beautiful home with a great view and provides all the amenities. The design of the home allowed everyone to be together and still have privacy, The owners are the best when it comes to rental arrangements and seeing that everything is in order. We did a tour of Beaufort while visiting and ate some great seafood. Recommend Docksides in Port Royal, Jonathan Creek Tavern and Steamers. Loved the beach access - weather did not permit visiting the light house - . Would recommend this rental to anyone as a home base for a great trip!! Allow yourself to be pampered!

We LOVED our vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful time @ your Pink House !! We will probably be back unless the size of our group forces us otherwise. With young children, it was very convenient to be so near the beach , yet we did not pay "beachfront" price. You were very kind in meeting our needs and providing a very clean, well-kept place, including the parking area below. God gave us beautiful weather and we had lots of good times. Thanks VERY much !

Owner's Response: My wife Linda & I are always proud when we hear that a family like yours had a great time. Yes our "Pink House" is so close to the Beach. Being able to hear the Ocean Waves & the Wind blowing thru the trees most nights is peaceful in a way that is not easily forgotten. The paved path to the beach makes it easy to go quickly back to the house if something is needed: you feel it will be safe to do so ( which it is) We appreciate your mention of the cleanliness of the house. We strive to be sure our guest always have a fantastic stay (our management company helps to make this happen). Thank you for your kind review. If possible, come back to rent our "Pink House" sometime soon in the future. All the best to your family. Linda & John Ellis

Wonderful Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My husband's siblings are spread all over the country. We had not seen each other in 2 1/2 years. I found the Pink House on VBRO and it was perfect. We are 5 couples so each one had their own bedroom. The kitchen, dining and living area was perfect for meals together and time to play games and talk. Sitting on the front porch enjoying our coffee and fellowship watching the dolphins with our binoculars, was a real treat. Evening walks on the beach and visits to Beaufort also added to the fun. The trip is one we will remember for a very long time.

Thank you for your kind response. We hope you can return to stay at our "Pink House" again soon. Sincerely to you & your family, John & Linda

August 2014 stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and has all the comforts of home. It is nice and spacious and the beach is just across the walkway. We had a very enjoyable vacation and Seaside getaways was very helpful with any issues that came up. I would recommend the house to friends and family and plan on staying again in the future!

5 +++ Stars - Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The "Pink House" was perfect for the home-away-from-home experience we were looking for when traveling to South Carolina. The owners provided all the "extras" that prevent vacationers from having to pack up their entire house just to have the necessities for a week-long stay. The house is centrally located within the resort area, and it is just a short walk across the street to access the beach. The golf cart provided with the rental allowed us to zip around the island without having to spend the time piling into the car again and again. The home is luxurious and elegant - we couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay. A few times a year my wife & I are able to come down to stay in our "Pink House". We are very careful to be sure things are being taken care of timely by our MGMT CO (which they are). We strive to authorize improvements of necessity...but of equal importance if we can add something that makes us smile with pride - hopefully our guest in turn will smile and feel at home during their stay. Please return soon. Your kind review was appreciated by us the owners - John & Linda
