Harbor Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Fabulous Oceanfront Beach House with spectacular ocean views from every room. Built on the dunes. Step off your porch and onto the beach. Panoramic vistas with sunrise views over the Atlantic and sunsets over Saint Helena Sound. Watch the shrimp boats off shore and the dolphins swim by. No walking required. You are there.

You cannot get any closer to Harbor Island's three miles of private sandy coastline... Central location with Beach Club, swimming pool, fitnes center, playground and tennis on-site.

Professionally decorated in Island motif. This upscale beach 'cottage' was built in the early 90's and redone in 2005. It has three decks/porches (including a screened-in porch with dining for eight overlooking the ocean). Too much sun - sit in our shaded patio just steps to the beach and watch the sun lovers frolic in the gentle waves of the ocean.

Large gourmet kitchen fully equipped. Hardwood floors throughout the main level. Dine in the great room - table seats eight comfortably.

There is a first floor bedroom with a queen size bed; the large master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed and two bunk beds. There is one full bath on the first floor and two full baths on the second. All are professionally decorated with beachy cottage motif. There are five TV's - one in each bedroom. All have Ocean Views.

View the two story high great room below from the upstairs balconies and hall lined with bookshelves. The loft offers a queen-size sleep sofa with a deck over looking the ocean that offers one of the most spectacular ocean views imaginable.

A fireplace in the great room is ideal for off-season pleasure. TV's in each bedroom, loft and living room plus VCR's/ DVD's and stereo systems are there to enjoy.

Professionally landscaped lot with palm trees and local flora. Outside shower by the private beach access with parking under the house. Beach chairs, toys and sand equipment are provided.

On-site tennis courts and golf on Fripp Island just five miles away.

This gated community offers the ocean front privacy that only the privileged few can enjoy with uncrowded sunny beaches on one side of the island (no boat required) and the low country creeks and marshes on the other with boating and fishing opportunities in an uncrowded pristine environment. Home to deer, osprey, egrets, pelicans, dolphins and various other shore birds. Wildlife and local color abound.

Nearby Beaufort, a well preserved pre civil war town that rivals Charleston, offers a fine array of dining, art galleries and boutiques.

WONDERFUL HOUSE AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I recently rented this house during my kids' Spring Break. Our party included 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a small dog. The house was very spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. The ocean /beach motif is tasteful and so soothing for anyone who loves the sea! The staircase that lead directly down to the ocean was in a little disrepair, but I would have to imagine that it is extremely hard to keep it looking pristine given it's location.... this house literally sits a few feet from the ocean at high tide!!!! I give this rental an excellent rating due to the fact that it was very reasonable in price to rent and the ocean front location/view can't be beat. There's no granite counters, bath towels didn't all match, perhaps the outside could use a little tender loving care... but the "guts" of the house were sound, clean and in good condition. The beds were extremely comfy! We had everything we needed and loved our stay at this house. The wireless internet worked great so I could keep up on my business back in Michigan.

Harbor Island was everything we hoped it would be. We aren't golfers and simply like being "right on the ocean" and enjoying nature and the ocean. You'll see alligators, egrets, herons, and countless sea creatures. The beach, as promised, was never crowded and beautiful! The house and beach are also "dog friendly", which was a plus for us. I found the beach to be impeccable... all dog owners seemed to be extremely responsible.

Inside advice for renters: The house does not provide "beach" towels (or maybe we missed them.) This was not an issue for us as we drove to SC from MI and packed our own beach towels. With renters flying in, it may be a small issue. Also, there is a thermostat on the 1st floor that does not work. The working thermostat is on the 2nd floor just outside the Master bedroom. After discovering this, the air conditioning worked just fine. If you stay at Harbor Island, and love the ocean, I would advise taking a day trip to Hunting Island Beach. It's just a couple miles up the road from Harbor Island. There are also hiking trails and boardwalks over the ocean march.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our first trip to Harbor Island. We plan on making this our regular Spring break destination, and will certainly look at this vacation home as one of our #1 picks.

PERFECT, PET-FRIENDLY, BEACHFRONT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We looked long and hard for a beachfront rental that would accomodate our well behaved German Shepherd and visiting relatives who live within driving distance. We LOVE this house! It is beachy and casual, but has all the ammenities that you could want. The screened porch offers shade, the decks offer sun, and the ocean view from every room in the house is breathtaking. The beds are all very comfortable and we fall asleep at night listening to the waves... From the screened porch we have seen numerous dolphins, pelicans, seabirds, scurrying crabs, and this morning we watched a shark go by about 20 feet offshore. We saw a baby alligator on the island, as well as deer and rabbits. The sandy beach is hard - good for bike riding and dog walks - and it is literally at the base of the steps to the deck. This house was everything we hoped it would be and then some. If you travel with your dog and want a view that can't be beat, this is it. We'll be back! (P.S. The owner could not have been nicer or more accomodating).

EXCELLENT BEACHFRONT HOME, CLEAN, CHEERFULL, COMFORTABLE AND RIGHT ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, our grown children, grandchild and pets enjoyed everyminute of our week. The home was spotless and shining when we arrived and we worked to leave it the same way. Everyone felt they had plenty of room and privacy. The Kitchen is large, attractive and well equipped. The furniture and beds are comfortable, which is something we don't often fiind in a vacation rental.

Of course, the best part is the instant access to the beach and the excellent ocean view from almost every room. Evereryone could just go down the stairs to the beach any time and walk, swim, fish or whatever they wanted with no reason to say "I'm going to the beach and will be back soon..." because we could see them from the windows or decks. This is much more relaxing than having to organize every outing.

The owners were friendly, helpful and responded thoughtfully to every communication even though we had to ask for schedule changes etc. to be able to organize our families' busy schedules.

The internet access was fast and reliable serving the umpteen devices used by everyone as well as allowing me to conduct some business. If this is important, I suggest you contact the owners about the location of the wireless security key before your arrival.

Being just minutes from Hunting Island with it's beautiful forests, trails, beaches and marshes is an extra bonus and we spent part of every day there. Halloween night my Grandaughter went trick-or-treating in Beaufort's historic neightborhood and had great fun.

We have frequently vacationed in the Beaufort/Hunting Island area for over 30 years and this may have been our best time yet. We are planning to return in the spring.

ON THE BEACH FOR SURE, BUT DO NOT EXPECT LUXURY

  • 3 of 5
Five of our family members stayed at this home for a week in September of 2011. The home is right on the beach and the porches and balconeys offer a full view on the ocean facing toward the northeast. You will watch shrimp boats go out every morning, watch sunrises every morning and walk the beach everyday. The home is relatively clean and comfortable but it could use some work and is a little rough around the edges. Many people with kids and pets have enjoyed this home and that is what it is best suited for. Activities in the area are not well organized so you will need to be creative and project oriented to make various activities happen. Do not expect this to be a golf friendly vacation. The possibilities are limited, especially for top notch, famous designer courses. Those are for higher end resorts and private clubs. Mid range courses can be accessed but expect to drive at least 30 minutes for anything.

WOW WHAT A VIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just enjoyed the most relaxing 3 days I have had in years, the house is fully stocked, clean and beautifully decorated. I was please with the price, location , but most especially the owner. She accomodated my last minute request. My 81 year old mother, who is recovering from a stroke had access to see the ocean via the deck, I just got her in her wheelchair and rolled her right on the porch every morning to see the sunrise and then again for sunset. Rent this place it will take years off your stress levels. Great time was had by all in our party, close enough but private enough to make it a very peaceful vacation. The house is clean and brightly decorated like a Carribean theme, the color pallate is very pleasing and restful to perfectly compliment mother nature. I am coming back again in October. Kudos to the owner for such a wonderful place you share!! :) :)

DREAM VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a location.... we enjoyed our week at your wonderful beach house, thank you! We loved being right on the beach with easy access to go to and from. When you relax at this house, all you see is water and clean, empty beaches.... heaven! I'm not sure why the previous guest had such a difficult experience? We found the house to be beautifully decorated, very comfortable and well-kept. It is a beach house though? The kitchen is well stocked and all appliances are farily new. The beds are comfortable and the towels fresh and new. I love the open feel of this house and it is just perfect for a family to enjoy their time together.

As for some of the specific points the previous reviewer stated, I expect the owner must have addressed them (or perhaps I don't have the same perspective?) as I found the place very clean with no doors falling off hinges, deck nails, cabinets awry, etc. The banister the reviewer mentioned (unless cleaned?) was intentionally rustic? The paint has been worn off to reveal a second color underneath, but that appears to be intentional... sort of like painted furniture that has a rubbed off look? I suspect the owner will need to paint the inside in the next few years, I just hope they stick with a similiar, fun, beachy, color scheme. I found everything charming....

We look forward to returning next summer! Maybe off season though, as it is a little hot in late June!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house!
