Overview

Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

This beach house has five bedrooms (four on the second floor, one on the third, loft on the fourth) with an elevator. The house is in immaculate condition, completed in November, 2003. There are hardwood floors throughout the house, beautiful kitchen cabinets and appliances with quartz countertops, wetbar with ice maker, two master bedrooms, 37 inch TV with Direct TV (five additional TVs as well), and a screened porch.

The kitchen, dining, great room and master bedroom are on the top floor and open up to a deck that has breathtaking views of the marshes and Harbor River. Two of the downstairs bedrooms open up to a screen porch with the same view. The screen porch has 2 outdoor daybeds for great afternoon naps! You will have access to the Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club. Also, the house comes with a golf cart.

Located in the private, gated community of Harbor Island, just 20 minutes from historic Beaufort SC. The home, at the end of a cul-de-sac, has a panoramic view in the rear of the marshes which are teeming with wildlife and the Harbor River.

To the front is a great view of the ocean. The rear deck is a great place to enjoy one of the most fantastic sunsets you will ever see. At the other end of the cul-de-sac is beach access to several miles of quiet, uncrowded beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

This smoke-free house has five bedrooms plus a loft and sleeps 13. There are two master bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a queen bed. Two additional bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom has a bunk bed and a trundle (three twins). There is also a loft with a day bed and pull out trundle. In summary there are 3 queens, 1 king and 5 twins. In addition to the beds inside the house there are 2 daybeds on the screen porch where some of our guests have enjoyed napping and sleeping.

The Great Room has two full sized sofas with a large dining table that seats eight. In addition, there is a bar that seats an additional four. There is also a pack-n-play crib.

We have a very large, fully equipped kitchen with quartz counters and new appliances with plenty of room to handle large families. The house comes with all linens provided and is professionally cleaned after each rental at no additional charge.

Harbor Island is a 1700-acre island about 15 miles east of Beaufort SC directly on the Atlantic Ocean and is a private gated community with over two miles of private beaches. The island is uncrowded and a great place for families. There are several golf courses nearby as well as Hunting Island State Park.

You have access to the Harbor Island Beach & Tennis Club which has an oversized pool, kiddie pool, tennis courts, fitness center, weight room, playground, volleyball court, snack bar, and basketball area.

About Jeannie Aull

This is the youngest of our four children. The other three are college age and beyond. We live in Columbia, SC. It takes 2 1/2 hours to get from our house in Columbia to our house in Harbor Island. Fortunately close enough for weekends away!

Jeannie Aull purchased this house in 2003

Why Jeannie Aull chose Harbor Island

We loved the combination of nature and family fun Harbor Island offers. The backside of our house is located on a beautiful salt marsh estuary teeming with wildlife. The other side is a beautiful un-crowded beach suited for walks, sunbathing, swimming, bocce ball, etc. The salty breezes and beautiful views give this place an intoxicating feeling that makes it tough to leave.

What makes this house unique

It starts with the spaciousness of the open floor plan and tall ceilings. There is plenty of room for the family to gather but also hideaways to enjoy quite time. The views offered on the decks are very special. The inverted floor plan (living area on the top floor) gave us even better views than we realized when we bought the lot. Sunset cocktails from the upstairs deck is a must do for us every afternoon. The two daybeds on the screen porch make for a good place to gather for conversation and enjoy the breeze.

family vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family traveled to SC for spring break. We all enjoyed the beach house with ample space for all. A few minor maintenance repairs were required during our stay and the owners were very responsive. We had a few warm days but unfortunately had cooler Temps and rain. Our girls loved the convenience of having the golf cart to access the beach and helped with transporting beach gear.

As good as it gets !

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our second vacation at Harbor Island after getting burnt out on mountain trips.

This was our first stay at this paticular property. Let me just say this is as close to perfect as you will ever get with a rental property and owners, anywhere !

From the first email of inquiry all the way through the process to the end of the stay these owners were quick with responses and beyond easy to work with.

The property is as described with no exaggerations and very well maintained.

The elevator was a huge help with loading and unloading. The almost brand new bikes got plenty of use. The included golf cart is a must. Don’t stay at any H.I. property without a golf cart !

The views, especially sunsets, are amazing from the decks and porches.

Our crowd maxed out at 10 and everyone had plenty of space of their own.

The kitchen is equipped above and beyond most rentals. This is a big plus somewhere like H.I. when you don’t want to load up into 3 or 4 vehicles and leave paradise for every meal. I took everything from home except the kitchen sink to be prepared for cooking varying menus. I won’t have to take anything next year if we are lucky enough to get this house again.

Many thanks to the Aulls for sharing their wonderful home. We will definitely be repeat customers.

Already planning next years stay.

Loved the views!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family just spent 4 days here and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. I've stayed at several houses on Harbor Island and this one was more well stocked than any other house by far. We even had a cabinet full of spices and used it to make a wonderful meal from goodies we got at the Port Royal Farmer's Market and Gay Seafood.

Loved all of the windows across the back of the house and the panoramic views of the marsh, bridge and beach. The owner was wonderful to work with and we will be back!

Great Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation during August, 2012 was absolutely wonderful! The marsh view was beautiful and the home was gorgeous! There were no disappointments. Description of the property was accurate in every way; property was maintained appropriately; and owners were very easy to communicate with and contact when needed. I would highly recommend this property to friends or relatives and hope to revisit myself. I love downtown Beaufort and always have so that's a plus for me. We visited Port Royal for the first time, found several quaint little shops and a delightful restaurant named Moondoggie's. Also, we ate at the Dockside which I thought was very good. Rent and enjoy!

Wonderful Week With Family

  • 5 of 5

This property is a wonderful place for an entire family to meet! This was our third year coming back to the same house at Harbor Island. Our families ages range from 5 to 55 (give or take a few years) but his house is perfect for all of us! It is great to see the children to be so excited to stay at the same house year after year. The house makes our vacation so at home and simple for Mom! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook dinner for 4 or 14! I love that there are spices to get you by rather than having to go out and purchase for them for one recipe. The sunsets and wildlife are awesome from all levels of this house. One year we actually made and ABC book of all of the wildlife we saw at Harbor Island! This is a great way to spend family time, to ride bikes spend time at the pool or beach, or just talk. I love the fact that there is no hustle or bustle on Harbor Island! A great Family Vacation!
