About the property

Condo - 2 Bedrooms (Queen, Twins, Sleeper Sofa) - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

"Please contact owner via email or phone prior to booking online. "

PALMETTO PARADISE'-- Escape the crowds and congestion of other southeast beaches and discover absolute tranquility on beautiful Harbor Island, South Carolina. Make this ideally-situated, 2 BR/2.5 BA condo with ocean views your personal retreat from civilization. Great For military families and snow bird long rentals.

This wonderfully-appointed, newly renovated vacation condo sleeps as many as 6, has a full kitchen, spacious living and dining area, and all of the amenities you would expect from a luxury beachside escape. Highly flexible sleeping arrangements include two twin beds, a queen, and a queen sleeper sofa. Condo comes furnished with side-by-side refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV in every room, entertainment center with DVD, and deck with ocean views.

The master bedroom is furnished with queen size bed and the guest room with two twins. The living room sofa converts to queen sleeper and the love seat to a youth size bed

A pack-n-play and highchair can be made available if needed. Your condo also overlooks one of two available swimming pools.

From your front door, take short stroll through unspoiled dunes as you arrive to find 2 1/2 miles of pristine beaches. Watch dolphins swim just yards away; experience the Loggerhead turtles wading ashore during nesting season (May through October) follow the egrets and herons through the miles of marshland you'll see poolside at the beach club. Keep an eye out for alligators sunning themselves on the OTHER side of the protective marsh fence.

There are plenty of activities for the family as well. Enjoy volleyball, swimming, tennis and shuffleboard at the Harbor Island beach club. A wonderful playground adjoins the pool (also kiddie pool) so children can be supervised without leaving the pool deck. A sandwich and gift shop sit atop the club with magnificent views of the marsh and adjacent inlet. The club also has both a fitness center and a cardio room.

Fish, boat, crab or kayak in and around one of Harbor's many lagoons. Enjoy world-class golf on nearby Cat or Fripp Island. Enjoy fresh, local seafood just a stone's throw from the front gate.

Historic Beaufort is also just minutes away. Experience antebellum homes from a horse drawn carriage or take a leisurely stroll through downtown shops and eateries that offer distinct low-country charm. Deep-sea fishing charters can be scheduled year-round from the downtown marina. Do a little bit of everything or absolutely nothing at all. See how serene and peaceful a vacation can be. With no distractions and just about every diversion, Harbor Island is truly life in the slow lane. We hope you'll visit our PALMETTO PARADISE. It was love at first site for us!!! We are sure you will feel the same.

We were visiting from Norway and have a wonderful time at Harbor Island.

We enjoyed your beautiful condo -- some of the little details that mattered to us were the good beds and bathrooms.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spotless beautiful property, and Mary made sure everything was perfect. She made sure the remodeling, due to hurricane was completed before we arrived. She was so helpful with sending information about the island and things to do. Beaufort is charming. We enjoyed a local festival and shopping thru the historic district. I watched the sunrise every morning from the deck sipping my coffee and then walked the beach, frequently visiting with the turtle patrol. The first loggerhead turtle nest of the season was laid just beyond our boardwalk. It is a perfect location for small children and families with long sandy beaches, shallow water and lots of hermit crabs. Cannot wait to return with our grandchildren. As for this trip, we were celebrating out anniversary. Many wonderful restaurants close by, but out favorite was Boondocks with 50 cent shrimp night on Wednesdays located just 3 miles away and the Wren Bistro in Beaufort. The property had everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable. It was the perfect retreat.

Anniversary Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time while down in the area. My wife and I along with family celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. The condo was perfect and we couldn't of asked for any better! Thank you Mary for sharing your home with us for this special occasion. The beach was awesome ;the wildlife abundant and for our almost 5 -year-old little boy that made the trip even more worthwhile. I think our little girl enjoy the pool and the playground the most. Such a peaceful, serene setting and we truly enjoyed our time there. Thanks again!

Harbor Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Palmetto Paradise. We took the grand kids down for a long weekend and had a great time on the beach. We also were able to see turtles hatching and making their way to the ocean on Saturday night. It was a great experience.

Very relaxing, plus an alegator sighting

  • 5 of 5

My girls and I had a lovely time. The property was clean and as represented. Never did figure out the WI FI but we were on vacation after all. Located close to everything we needed so necessities were but minutes away. The immediate beach was perhaps more shallow and tame than we anticipated, but the State Park was 5 minutes away so we spent most of our ocean time there. This would be ideal for families with small children due to the privacy and safety of the immediate beach. Access to 2 pools was great. We did see an 8 ft alligator under a bridge - we were over the bridge so not in harms way. Very exciting for us Colorado natives. Overall, had a delightful stay and still miss having shrimp daily.

Owner's Response: Thanks for visiting with us at Harbor Island and Palmetto Paradise... I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the beauty of both Harbor Island and Hunting State Park. I hope that you will escape from the mountains again to the ocean side.

This was our 1st family vacation. (1.5 year old and 8 month old) it was very family friendly. She had a high chair. Sound soother (next time we won't have to bring ours) rocking chair in the master bedroom. loved how close we were to everything! The pool, the beach. we spent 2 days at hunting island state park ( very short drive) deff worth it. Bed was super comfy. it was clean. we liked how the bedrooms are upstairs and living space downstairs. When the babies are sleeping we would sit on the patio looking at the ocean.

The only thing we didn't like was all the stairs. It's a second story condo and then the unit was 2 story. We had to barricade the stairs in the unit for our 1.5 year old. But that would not prevent us from staying there again, it just means we would pack less! 😂😉

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that your family had a wonderful '1st' family vacation.... Harbor Island is a great place for families --- not congested or crowded... All of the 2 bedroom condos on Harbor are located on the 2nd level but the good thing about this is that the view from the 2nd level decks are fantastic... being able to see all of the way to the waterfront... I hope that your family will plan to visit with us again very soon. Thank you, Mary

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nicely decorated and it looks just like it does in the photos. There is a mirror on the wall of the deck facing the ocean so you can sit in the living room on the couch or chair next to the deck and see the ocean. The condo is very well maintained. The bedding is very nice as well. It is the second story condo so there are stairs, but the stairs are not bad at all and that is coming from someone with bad knees. Harbor Island is a perfect location to visit Hunting Island and Beaufort. I have never seen a beach so large and beautiful as the one on Harbor Island. The board walk is a little long, but oh so enjoyable. There are a lot of birds to see on the way. We spent an afternoon kayaking in the lagoon at Hunting Island and one afternoon riding through the old part of Beaufort. The trees are absolutely beautiful. If you don't want to bring groceries and cook, there are plenty of local places to eat within minutes of the condo; even breakfast. I would highly recommend this condo to family and friends. We look forward to going back when our schedule permits. The owner was very punctual in responding back in answering questions I had and provided wonderful customer service.
