Welcome to PARADISE. Many have chosen to rent our 5 BR/5BA Beach House (all Queen Beds) at #1 Windjammer Court, resulting in LOTS OF happy memories. Our beach house is special. Keep reading why this is :-)
YES my wife & I are confident Our 'Pink House' IS a great option for 1 or more families searching for a fun, beautiful, roomy, well furnished & maintained Beach House to relax AND partake of the happiness Harbor Island has to offer.
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 (getting warmer: 75* today 3/10/14)
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!

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.

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

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.
