Our family enjoyed a great week at the Sailfish house. The open living area was great for our family gathering, as were the bedrooms. We really enjoyed the outside decks & eating at the outside table after cooking on the grill. There was always a nice breeze out there & a great outdoor reading area. We bought a Huntington Island park pass for the week at the fishing pier & used it several days to go to & fro, including climbing the lighthouse. The golf cart was a neat way to travel to the pool & beach. The kitchen was well stocked w/everything needed to prepare meals. Thank you for great family memories at the Sailfish.

This is a great house. The kitchen was loaded with all the items you need to cook for a

family of 14. We enjoyed riding the golf cart and bikes. The back porch was really nice to

sit on. Went fishing on the Huntington Island Pier and also on the beach area of Harbour

Island. The kids really enjoyed the game room upstairs and kept separate from the adults

to enjoy playing games downstairs and watching TV. We took a carriage ride in Beaufort and loved it. Also took a day trip to Savannah, GA and enjoyed that too. Thanks again for such a nice vacation staying at the Sailfish.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting the review. I am so glad the kitchen/house met the needs of your party. Harbor is the perfect island for golf cart rides and bike riding. Downtown Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA are charming southern towns with many wonderful places to visit. Thanks again, it has been a pleasure having you! Laura

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home that worked perfectly for our son’s graduation from Parris Island. The house was tastefully decorated and well appointed. We had 12 family members for the trip and the space was very comfortable. The golf cart made for a quick (and fun) trip to the beach and the view from the back deck is beautiful. The owners were very responsive and friendly throughout the process. I’d strongly recommend the home.

We chose the Sailfish for a getaway with 3 other families that we enjoy vacationing with. The Sailfish appeared to have all the essentials and perks that we would enjoy for our week long stay. We were not disappointed at all. The adults and children all had a great time. Even with four families we still had lots of space and quiet time if needed. Everyone enjoyed the game room and the back porch. We spent lots of time on the back porch relaxing while the children were playing. The house is great for children. We really enjoyed the bikes and riding around the island. We will for sure consider the Sailfish for our next group vacation!!!

Living the Good Life on Harbor Island

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Harbor Island for a week of relaxation with our son, daughter and their young families. We were not disappointed; the Sailfish was incredible! The home was immaculate, bright and cheerful. We spent hours drinking in the killer views of the marsh and ocean from the spacious back porch. While the temperatures reached the high eighties, there was always a cool breeze to be enjoyed out there. The property was very well maintained, plenty of clean linens and everything in good working order. Grandkids enjoyed trips to the beach and pool on the golf cart with stops along the way to visit the resident gator. We also had a chance to explore strawberry picking at a nearby farm, schedule a "girls' day out" in Beaufort and whip up a couple of tasty low country boils. No shortage of fresh caught shrimp here! Laura, our hostess, was a pleasure to deal with...great suggestions and always prompt with her replies to e-mails. Would definitely recommend this property to others and looking forward to a return trip someday ourselves.

Happy on Harbor Island

  • 5 of 5

We chose Harbor Island to host our annual family reunion and we couldn't have been happier to have chosen "Sailfish" to do so. The bedrooms were large and beautifully appointed. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary gadgets, which easily accommodated 14 people with plenty of dishes, glassware, and utensils. The favorite feature of the house was its upstairs game room. It occupied the kids ranging in age from 6 years to 22 years old with board games, pool, and fooseball. We rode bikes, swam in the community pool, and explored the island on the golf cart. The kids couldn't wait to wake up for our daily adventures! Laura gave wonderful recommendations regarding restaurants, shopping, and local activities. She was a great communicator who truly wanted our stay to be a good one. I would highly recommend "Sailfish" to anyone looking to stay in a home away from home.
