Many of our renters have fallen in love with our 'Pink House'. Please read some of the many positive Rental Reviews we have received.

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, High Tide & as the tide is going out. For more direct Ocean Waves- 'use our Hunting Island State Park Car Pass', which by car is aprox 1 1/2 mile away. Be sure to go up to the top of the only Light House in South Carolina that can be climbed & visit the Nature Center & hike the trails, then go out to its wonderful beach: They also have a fish fishing pier ( you can also fish on our beach ) SC Fishing license is needed when you fish. Check out Harbor Islands moderate temperatures. http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/29920 ( 83* weather is forecast for 9/23/14 )

You will hear stories about Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting in the sand dunes- THEY'RE TRUE. Harbor Island has guidelines to help protect them til they're ready to return to the Ocean.
