2014 OUR PINK HOUSE, 60 SECS TO BEACH & ALL QUEEN BEDS, RECD TEN 5 STAR REVIEWS!

Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

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

WELCOME To Paradise! Renting our 'Pink House' (honored Ten Times 2014 with reviews, all 5 Star's) can bring you lots of happiness. It is well furnished, has 5 BRs ( 5 QUEEN BEDs & 5 BAs ) reflects the beauty of life at the beach, is clean and is professionally managed & maintained. More great reasons to stay for a family vacation or when a Son or Daughter graduates from nearby Parris Island are: Lots of Room (2600 SQ FT), peaceful, family oriented & surrounded by Nature & close to nearby Historical Cities & lots of Shopping/Dining/Fresh Seafood options.

As you can see by photos at our site, our Beach House is located oh SO CLOSE to the beach ( closer than many Harbor Island Ocean Front Homes ). The VIEWS you see of the Ocean from inside the house, on the screened porch, or on one of the many outside decks are AWESOME. You will OFTEN see & hear Palmetto Palms, Sega Palms, Sea Oats, Tropical Grasses & other Plants blow gently in the wind. Nites you can hear Ocean Waves softly crashing to the beach. Keep reading!

When ready to SWIM, WALK or JOG- going to the Beach takes only approximately 60 SECONDS. Walk over our front yard sidewalk, then cross the LAZY & QUIET street. As seen in PHOTO #2, you then proceed forward on the paved Access Path that is DIRECTLY across from our sidewalk to 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 9:00-6:00) ( view sunset - then gates are locked). (Closes aprox. November 1st.) Enjoy the small Retail Store which includes some Island Gift's, Snack's and a few Necessity Groceries. Also there's volleyball, basketball, a children's pool, swing set, playground, fitness Room, Weight Room, Golf Chipping Yard & tennis.

Our 'Pink House' Includes Satellite TV, Free WI-FI, heavy duty 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 THEREFORE- the Side Door & 2 Garage Door's MUST BE CLOSED each night so hungry Racoon's are kept out)

IMPORTANT facts & features about our spacious 'Pink House': The layout of the Main Floor inside: The Great Room includes: a very large beautiful Wood dining table with 10 matching chairs, the fully equiped open Kitchen (has 4 Wood counter bar stools that match the table), comfy lounging chairs & couch & TV. Get ready to relax even more: open the sliding door in the great room- step onto a spacious screened porch with table & chairs ( take the time to kick back, relax and take in the beautiful Ocean view! )

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

AN ADDED BONUS FROM THE UPSTAIRS BR #1 MASTER SUITE- In the morning from the front deck (with a cup of coffee) you can sit and watch the AMAZING Sunrise peep slowly over the Ocean THEN in the evening from the rear sitting area or back deck (with a beverage of your choice) gaze out over the Island's Marsh. The South Carolina Low Country often features Awesome Colorful Sunsets.

Photo's at our VRBO or HOMEAWAY site show off all rooms of our house & include related general comments. All Photos are up to date. What you see is what will be there when you rent our House.,

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 ( 81* weather is forecast for 10/03/14 )

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 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. 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.

About John Ellis & Linda

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

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 & 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 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 :-)

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

wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The pink house was perfect for our whole family! The layout was great. The upstairs suite was so nice for my husband and me with all the children and grandchildren on the main floor! The office space and free WiFi was excellent for our son who worked on post graduate assignments while there. The island was perfect and so safe for our grandchildren to ride bikes and the pool was a big hit with them. Sunrises were awesome! A wonderful week at the pink house!

Owner's Response: My wife & I want to thank you for renting our "Pink House" and are glad your family enjoyed your vacation. The many things you said were positive are a few of the many reasons we bought the house. We are going down in a few weeks for a family vacation with our children & grand children. ( we can't wait to see the beautiful Sun Rises from our upstairs Master Bedroom ) and enjoy all the Unique things Harbor Island and the Low Country have to offer. We hope you will return to stay in our "Pink House" in Paradise in the future. All the best, John Ellis & Linda.

Amazing House - Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5
When my son left for Marine Corps boot camp, I booked this house. I had never booked a house on the internet before, so I was a little skeptical. To my delight, it was everything that the description says it is. The pictures show exactly how the house looks. They actually don't do it justice.
My entire family loved it. It was the perfect place for our family to relax during those few days traveling back and forth to Parris Island. And then once we got our new Marine back to the house, he did not want to leave. We had all day Friday to relax at the beach before we cooked our Marine his first home-cooked meal he had in 3 months. I cannot express my gratitude to John and Linda for opening up their beautiful home for us to enjoy.

Owner's Response: Hello. My wife Linda & I would like to thank you for staying at our house and congratulate your son & welcome him to the Marines. Please relay our thanks to him in advance for his service to our country. We appreciate your kind Review when you stayed at our "Pink House" - we are very proud of it. We are fortunate our management company follows thru to see the house is cleaned thoroughly after all rentals and that they respond promptly to review any problems reported to them. Upon notification of any problems deemed necessary to correct I have strived to have them resolved. Again we are happy you enjoyed your stay. Linda & I hope you will return to stay at our Beach House again in the future. For future rentals, please call me. I will be happy to discuss current rates and answer any other questions. All the best. John Ellis & Linda.
