Guestbook comments from the owner

Our time on Harbour Key was just a wonderful experience. The weather was wonderful and the people here are so friendly. We came here to celebrate the union of two wonderful people and staying here really put the icing on the cake. The best part about staying here was the wonderful deck, the spacious bedrooms, and the very peaceful area. The decorations and how everything is placed in this house is wonderful. Thanks for the wonderful experience. We would love to come back.

Thank you.

Under Elderly or Infirmed the reason I state the house maybe unsuitable is due to the fact all the homes on the island are raised so require stairs to access. There are a few homes that have elevators and the villas (but they also require a few stairs to access).

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental! The house is very comfortable and has all amenities. Frank is very helpful with any of your needs. The rental was spotless and all basics are supplied, including Keurig plus coffee packs. Frank also includes a pass to Hunting Island State Park which is a beautiful natural area and beach- not to be missed. We hope to return with better weather, but the house was still enjoyable. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Great property for Marine parents

  • 5 of 5

My group of six stayed for Marine Corps graduation. You let yourself in so no worries about waking someone up. It's very easy to get to Parris Island from this property and takes about 30 minutes to reach the entrance. It's convenient because you access Parris Island from the opposite direction of where most of the traffic is coming from and your ramp into the entrance gives you the right of way in front of all the incoming traffic. The house is beautiful and clean and if you need basic necessities, they're all right at hand. We had 6 people two nights and 7 one night and never ran out of toilet paper or paper towels. Coffee and creamers and towels are plentiful and a 4 seat golf cart is a fun way to get to the beach. The beach is a bit of a walk but less than a mile over flat paved ground and a boardwalk. You will need a pass to access the beach by car. The house setup suited us well. One downstairs bedroom has a bathroom accessed only by going through that bedroom. The other bathroom is downstairs between bedrooms. The beds are comfy and sheets were pristine. Plenty of pillows for all. The upstairs bedroom was my favorite and has a full size and two twin beds. It's like having an awesome tree house all to yourself. It's up and away from the rest of the house and the windows look out toward the ocean. Bring bug spray as the mosquitos come out in force at dusk. We never saw Frank but he was only a text away as we had an issue with the Wi-Fi. He answered immediately and had it fixed the next morning. The beach is relaxing and uncrowded and great for long walks. There are several restaurants within a 20 minute drive and even a local place to buy fresh caught fish. A lot of places close as early 8 and some earlier. Make sure to visit the Foolish Frog with your new Marine as they treat every Marine to a free meal! Much appreciated and the food is fantastic. I feel that my money was well spent at the yellow house and everyone in my group was pleased. We don't do this very often so it was great to have everyone happy. I would not hesitate to rent from Frank again.

This place ROCKS for convenience!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was extremely clean and provided more than anyone could ask for! John provided good information about the area. We had a family vacation after our son graduated from the Marine Corps and this was perfect. The amenities were the best! (beach towels, beach chairs, gas grill, golf cart, state park pass, access to community pool, gym, tennis courts, etc.) Walking distance to kayak and bike rentals, and restaurants. This place can't be beat!

Our pristine secluded beach stretches 3 miles of the Atlantic Ocean Coast Line tall in natural wind swept dunes, sea oats, coastal grasses, and native wildlife. Where you can watch dolphins at play in the surf and shrimp boats passing lazily bye. It is one of the Carolina Sea Islands. The majority of the island is tidal marsh, though approximately 800 acres of upland acreage exist on the northeastern portions of the island. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Harbor River and Johnsons Creek. Intertwined with miles of Saltwater Canals, Creeks and Marsh. A natural habitat for over 1500 varieties of native and migrating birds and plenty of coastal life. The Atlantic Ocean, Harbor River, Streams and Canals offer plenty of Shrimping, Crabbing and Fishing right on the Island There are many activities on the Island with the Harbor Island Beach & Racket Club

Other Activities: Tennis, Volley Ball Court, Basket Ball Court, Kids Play Area, Over Sized Pool, Workout room with Nautilus, free weights, treadmills and more, Shuffle Board
