OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT, UNFORGETTABLE VACATION

Harbor Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2½ Bathrooms (Sleeps 4) Non-Smoking

Flip flops, sand between your toes and sun in your eyes. Just like 'The Good Ole Days': quiet, no crowds and no traffic. Leave your worries behind, take off that tie, work boots, or high heels and turn off that cell phone too. You won't need them here. But, if you must get online there is free WiFi. Our condo is perfect for relaxing and well equipped. So kick back, put your feet up and relax. Have a glass of wine, a cold beer or some sweet tea on our beach front deck and enjoy the panoramic ocean view. Go to bed at night with the windows open and hear the waves splashing on the beach, then wake up to the most beautiful sunrises anywhere then go for an early beach walk with your coffee and look for turtle tracks. What a way to start the morning!

There's lots to do. Fishing, shrimping, crabbing, shelling and swimming at one of the pools at either end of the building or the Olympic size pool and a children's pool at the Beach and Racquet Club just a couple minutes walk away. The four pools are open April 1 through October 31. The Beach and Racquet club also has a gym you can use, a playground for kids and bikes for rent. Don't forget to bring the beach towels and toys!

There's nature galore; nesting birds, gators (don't feed them!) ghost crabs at dusk, seagulls flying low just waiting for some bread crumbs and even a pair of Osprey's nesting near the crabbing dock. For even more nature visit Hunting Island State Park, it's just across the river.

There's so much to do and so little time. So make the best of every minute and enjoy!

Our condo has a well equipped contemporary kitchen with a breakfast bar. During the renovation the first floor was changed to an open floor plan. There is a dinning area, family room area and powder room downstairs too. The second floor has two bedrooms each with its own full bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed, huge eight foot wide window overlooking the ocean and a shower that has two shower heads, one of which is a rainfall shower head. The second bedroom has two twin size beds and a combined bathtub and shower. There are flat screen TVs and BluRay players in the family room and each bedroom. Free WiFi just for our guests. Free calling to the 50 states, which is important because cell phone coverage is spotty. There is a washer and dryer in the condo too.

Our condo is strictly non-smoking. We respectfully request that if anyone in your group smokes that you do not rent our condo. This is not a commercial property but is our personal condo and we stay there frequently.

We live in Ohio. The property manager for our condo, Harbor Island Rentals, is just a block down the road from the gate to Harbor Island to make sure your stay is just as wonderful as if we lived in Beaufort. Pete & Elena

Pete purchased this condo in 2012

Ocean front on a stunning 2+ mile long beach in a private gated community with on-site 24/7 security. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life but not far from many places to go, things to see and do and excellent restaurants.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO IN A LOVELY AREA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this condo for a week. It is beautiful inside and out, and very well maintained. The beds are very comfortable. It is close to the pools, other community facilities, and the beach. The views are stunning! My family and I really enjoyed eating breakfast while watching the sunrise over the ocean. There is a deck that is nice for relaxing. The area around the condo is really great, too: we especially enjoyed visiting Hunting Island State Park and Beaufort. Our favorite restaurant in Beaufort is a breakfast place called Burlap - definitely try it! Our toddler loved the baby pool and the ocean, which is often very calm and shallow - perfect for her to play in. We all enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the area (turtles, alligators, fish, crabs, birds, etc.).

CAROLINA GIRL AT HEART

  • 5 of 5
This is my third vacation on Harbor Island. I've liked Harbor very much, but staying in this unit made me love it. The unit is tastefully and efficiently decorated so that the focus is always on the beautiful view of the water and not on patterns and distractions in the condo. It's very clean and comfortable with all of the amenities you should expect. I appreciate the details - the simplicity of the china, the clever napkin holder, the humorously large chain that holds the key to the outside storage of beach chairs, the engraved gold plates that mark private closets. Having stayed in many condos for the past fifteen years, I appreciate the creativity, the care, the class and the whimsy of the details. Another detail - being greeted with a bottle of wine and a personal note from the owners welcoming me to their home.

I was awaken in the morning by beautiful sunrises, enjoyed tea on the terrace as the red sky turned to blue, walked on broad stretches of beach, watched egrets settle into rookeries, crossed marshes on wooden bridges. The Island demonstrates its respect for nature by enforcing policies that protect loggerhead turtle nests and the island's vegetation and marine life. The Harbor is peaceful, natural and non-tourist.

The unit is even more impressive than the photos, although the photos originally sold me. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who values quality in their living accommodations. You have to leave the island for groceries, restaurants, shopping, but small markets are available in the immediate area, and there are a several local favorite restaurants. Major shopping areas are 15 minutes away, the charming town of Beaufort is 15 minutes away, and Hunting Island is a state park that provides ocean beaches, a lighthouse and picnic areas. Harbor Island and the immediate area are ideal for people who like a laid back vacation without urban distractions.

Before completely my stay this year I requested two weeks for next year. I wanted to gets dibs on 2015. I look forward to returning to a unit and an island that are becoming a familiar, home-like vacation spot.

Owner's Response: It took a few years of search and five months of renovation to find and to create a peaceful getaway for our family and friends. While decorating the condo, our goal was to emphasize the quiet beauty of Harbor Island. Thank you for sharing our enthusiasm for Harbor Island and for coming back next year.

COMFORTABLE HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Little did we know when we booked our stay in May, 2013 just how much we would need a warm, comfortable place to escape the Polar Vortex that enveloped the Midwest. We left our home by car in a blizzard, headed for Harbor Island and the condo that looked so wonderful and inviting in pictures. We had great hopes. We were NOT disappointed.

Everything we hoped for and imagined was indeed here on Harbor Island. This condo is spectacular....a warm and inviting place to rest and renew body and soul. The owners have seen to every convenience, every amenity, every comfort. We were at home immediately. We loved everything about the place from the spacious living area to the comfortable king-size bed to the roomy kitchen with everything you need provided for you. The view of the ocean and beach from the master bedroom was amazing. The sunrises from there and from the balcony off the living area were incredible. We loved walking the beach each and every day, hunting for shells and just enjoying the warmth and beauty. We even saw dolphins on our walks.

We enjoyed visiting Beaufort just a short drive up the Sea Islands Parkway. Be sure to take the carriage ride through this beautiful, historic southern town. We also loved visiting Hunting Island State Park...five minutes from the condo...a wonderful place to spend the day. There were so many other places of interest to visit. We never lacked for something to do. In addition, there are lots of wonderful restaurants nearby, so you are never lacking for good food served in unique surroundings, just in case you don't want to cook.

The owners certainly have done a magnificent job, providing a comfortable haven to enjoy. You will not be disappointed in your choice.

HARBOR ISLAND HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
The moment you walk in, you gasp. In the most wonderful way. Beautiful, elegant, welcoming. There is nothing to obstruct your view from the kitchen. You will lose yourself in the ocean view and feel your cares slip away. True ocean front. The owners have paid specific attention to detail. The furnishings are comfortable and the beds transport you to dream land. Just don't sleep past 6:30 AM, or you will miss the most incredible sunrises. Nature has taken care of the beauty outside, the owners nailed it on the inside. The owner(s) have a gift for art and many of (her) pieces grace the walls. Truly talented! These are the special touches that have gone into the love of this property. I doubt there is anything you will need during your stay. For the discriminating renter, you will want to return each year. One week was not enough, I feel as if I left months ago! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. I definitely plan on returning.

HARBOR ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The trip to Harbor Island, SC was a breeze! Five hours from our home, the travel time took us to a beautiful and easy entrance into Harbor Island. The directions to acquire keys to our condo were so simple and there was absolutely no stress. The friendly voice on the phone at the rental office, when I had questions, just added to the excitement and ease of planning our trip.Upon entering the condo, it took our breath away. The photos don't come close to the beauty and refreshing, peaceful accommodation. Everything we needed and more was right there waiting for us, including a bottle of wine! We enjoyed cooking in the "chef's kitchen." We almost didn't want to leave the condo to go sight-see because it was so comfortable, clean, relaxing, and then there was the VIEW!!! Oh my gosh, what a view! The ocean was breathtaking! Upon our arrival, there it was, just beyond the beautiful balcony. We loved our morning walks, watching the sun rise, swimming in the pool, just steps away. We were not bothered by any noise from neighbors, at all. When we had to pack up, we really didn't want to leave. The ease of leaving was also part of the pleasant experience. We would go back in a heartbeat, but you better book this place months in advance!

Harbor Island is a special place. It is NOT a place to find crowds, noise or traffic. It IS the place for a wonderfully quiet beach vacation. In a glorious natural setting, our island is perhaps the best kept secret on the East coast. This is a private, gated community with 24 hour security and a friendly place where people say hello and wave at you from their cars. The beautiful beach is never crowded.
