Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

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

WELCOME. Many have chosen to rent our 5 BR/5BA ' Pink House ' (all Queen Beds) at #1 Windjammer Court and left with LOTS OF happy memories. YES you have found PARADISE :-)

My wife & I are confident our Beach House is a great option for 1 or more families. Come relax- you will feel at home: Spacious, Beachly Furnished, clean, well maintained AND includes a great view of the nearby Ocean from Inside the house, seated on the screened porch or while on one of the many decks.

Like living a TROPICAL DREAM you will OFTEN hear & see Royal Palms, Palmetto Palms, Sega Palms, Sea Oats, Tropical Grasses & other Plants blow gently in the wind AND hear Ocean Waves softly crashing to the beach.

The Beach is OH SO CLOSE. Walk over our front yard sidewalk, then cross the LAZY & QUIET street. A paved Beach Access Path is DIRECTLY right in front of you! As seen in Picture #3 the dune is just slightly elevated. YES in Only 60 SECONDS you're on the beach!

INCLUDED WHEN YOU RENT- just a short walk from our house is the Island Beach and Racquet Club. Amenities are: A beautiful Olympic Size Pool (OPEN DAILY Mon-Sunday 9:00-sunset.. Until November 1st.), a Small Retail Store which offers Gift's, Snack's, Necessity Groceries. Also volleyball, basketball, a children's pool, swing set, playground AND a fitness Room, Weight Room, Golf Chipping Yard & tennis.

Our 'Pink House' Includes Satellite TV, Free WI-FI, Washer/Dryer & more! Lots of parking space in the Drive way. Also the 2 door enclosed Garage under the house has LOTS OF space for 4 cars & lots more. Bikes and beach belongings will be safe. Includes an outdoor shower. VERY IMPORTANT the heavy duty lattice lets in light, but keeps out animals!

Additional IMPORTANT facts & features about our spacious 'Pink House': The layout of the Main Floor inside- the open Kitchen, part of the Great Room, has 4 matching counter bar stools. The Great Room includes: a large dining table with 10 matching chairs, comfy lounging chairs & couch & TV. Get ready to relax: open the sliding door in the great room- step onto the screened porch with table & chairs ample to take in the beautiful Ocean view! The main floor also includes 4 of the 5 Bedrooms (#'s 2-5) & 4 Bath Rooms and Office with Desk/chairs. Proceed thru office to the Upstairs floor Master Suite which includes: Bedroom #1- with front Ocean View & Huge Bath Room & walk in closet & rear sitting area with a Marsh/River View. All 5 Bedrooms include a Closet. (All photo's at our VRBO or HOMEAWAY site include related general details).

I can't say it often enough - the Ocean View you see while staying in our beach house is an AMAZING picture: SUNRISE is a great time to enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the spot of your choice!

AN ADDED BONUS FROM THE UPSTAIRS MASTER SUITE- In the morning from the front deck you can watch the SUNRISE peep slowly over the Ocean AND in the evening from the back deck & sitting area gaze at the Island's Marsh & the Harbor River as the colorful SUNSET ushers in another peaceful Nite.

We have a wonderful & peaceful 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, visit Hunting Island State Park, which by car is 1 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 & go out to its wonderful beach & fish at the fishing pier. Check out Harbor Islands moderate temperatures. http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/29920 ( Getting warmer: 77* 3/11/14)

On Harbor Islands Beach, you'll see horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, watch dolphins play, see beautiful birds fly around & land on the beach to play/eat. Enjoy the Shrimp Boats as they slowly pass. You will hear stories about the Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting in the sand dunes- THEY'RE TRUE. Help us protect them til they're ready to return to the Ocean. Around Harbor Island you will see terns, pelicans, egrets, herons, osprey, seagulls, cranes, other birds flying & sleeping in the Rookeries. Nature on the island includes rabbits, fox, raccoons, alligators, turtles, deer & other wildlife.

Husband & Wife, John Ellis & Linda, live in Alexandria, VA. After traveling to many beautiful beaches, we fell in love with Harbor Island's beauty & 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

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 & 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.. Checkout photos & you will see some recent changes.

We suggest that 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 mile's 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- Our 'Pink House' will be waiting :-)

WONDERFUL TRIP!!! Ready to go back!!!

Our stay at this home was wonderful. The home was spacious and beautifully decorated, but very much family friendly. Loved the screen porth and the balcony in the Master Suite upstairs. The children enjoyed the short walk to the beach & the golf cart ride to the park. The owners were very easy to work with and they were very accommodating for our trip on such short notice. We are looking to come back in a few months if available.
Owner's Response: My wife & I are very happy you and your family enjoyed a special fun weekend at our Harbor Island "Pink House" . Thank you for the kind mention of the decor of the house - we are striving to make it not just an exciting beach vacation you will remember, but also feel like you are staying in a peaceful home. The views from the screened porch & decks are one thing that sold us on the Harbor Island Destination- like looking at pictures from a travel book. Being so close to the beach & rides around the Island on our golf cart can be lots of fun. We hope you will be coming back to stay at our Beach House in Paradise soon :-)

Sincerely,

John & Linda.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. As the owners, my wife & I are happy your family had a fun and relaxing time. We all have gone through a very cold & snowy winter- in fact we just went for a long weekend to the "Pink House" after your vacation and relaxed in the home and walked the beach... your dolphin's were still swimming along the shoreline! Harbor Island is a great place to go any time of the year. Keep us in mind for future vacations - referrals will be appreciated. Sincerely, John & Linda

Great Place!

We stayed here for my son's Parris Island Marine Corp graduation. We had my parents and sister join us for the graduation and this was the perfect meeting place. My son couldn't wait to join us. The set up was great, very comfortable and welcoming. Most of the bedrooms were on the main floor and worked wonderfully since my Mom is not crazy about stairs. Perfect gathering place after a long, anticipated reunion with my son. Right across the street was the beach which we walked each evening even tho it was on the colder side. Very relaxing and John was a pleasure.
Owner's Response: Marybeth & Family... My wife Linda & I are always appreciate to hear that guest enjoyed staying at our "Pink House" at Harbor Island. We want to again congratulate your son for his graduation at Parris Island, and wish him great success as a Marine. We hope you will return to stay at our house in the future. All the best. John & Linda.

Great Time at the Beach!!

My husband, son, brother, and sister-in-law and I recently spent a wonderful week in the Pink House. We were so pleased with it's floor plan, as well as it's location. Even though it's across the street from the beach, the walk way to the beach is directly in front of the house. It literally takes a minute to get to the beach. The house was equipped with everything that we needed. John had recently added the availability of a golf cart, which we did not rent initially. However, we wanted to explore the neighborhood and a golf cart made it so easy and so much fun. We contacted John a couple of days into our vacation and he arranged everything for us to be able to use the golf cart. If there is any draw back to Harbor Island, it is that is about 20 minutes from any significant shopping district, but we went there to relax and enjoy some local seafood; not to shop. Per John's recommendation, we visited Hunting Island State Park and went up in the lighthouse. What a view! I would highly recommend the same. Thanks, John and Linda, for renting your house to us. We had a great time. It was the first time for my brother to see the Atlantic Ocean and he enjoyed being able to chill out in a beautiful beach home. Thanks again! We hope to return.

Owner's Response: My wife and I are always pleased when our guest have a great time staying at our Beach House- your kind words are appreciated :-) We hope you will plan to come back soon to vacation in our "Pink House" located so close to the sea in the future. Sounds like you did lots of fun things During a return trip to Harbor Island, I suggest you shop in some of the local stores to the left of the gate - then continue back from the Island to Beaufort & stop often. We have found a variety of several shopping options. OH YES, Harbor Island is indeed a quite and unique place- the Golf Cart is a great option to see even more of the Island's Nature & yes the close by Hunting Island has another example of the Atlantic Ocean's beauty that is hard to explain until someone has been there. All the continued best to you and your family.

Sincerely,

John & Linda

What a beautiful house you have. My little family of six had one of the most relaxing vacations ever.
The walk on the beach without the crowds was very nice and peaceful. Riding every evening on the golf
cart was a thrill especially for the grand kids. I enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch with a great view just listening to the oldies on the radio. We had plenty of room with our own private bath, that was a luxury. The study was peaceful and relaxing with a book from your library. I give this home a 5 star.
Thanks to Ron and Greta for allowing us to rent such a wonderful place. Hope to return again in the near future. Thanks again,
Tim Shirley
