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).

Best vacation in years

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and in excellent shape. Frank check to make sure we got in ok and had arrived safely. When we told Frank about our problem with golf cart he had one there the next day. On the way to deliver it they check to see if we needed anything from the grocery store. They were so thoughtful even check to make sure we got home ok.

Great quiet family vacation spot on SC coast

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to find a quiet, low key area for a family vacay with 2 small kids. Harbor Island was definitely what we needed! The actual house was very well-kept and comfortable.The beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, included golf cart, nice porch, etc. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking items which was needed with eating-in most nights. Gay's Seafood had fresh shrimp for a great price.

Harbor's beaches were more shallow with little waves. We used the passes provided (great addition!) to Hunting Island (5 min away) which was gorgeous white sand beaches with fun waves. We did some surf fishing and caught mostly sharks and rays. Our kids had so much fun in a very uncommercialized beach area - loved it!

All we were hoping for and more!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our vacation with Frank back in February not knowing what to expect. Yes the reviews were all good and the pictures looked inviting, but you never know! Well everything was as advertised and more!!! The house was immaculate and well-stocked for our stay. From the clean bed linens to the crisp white towels to the overall cleanliness of the home we were thoroughly impressed!! All appliances were new and the kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. The home was decorated in a beach theme that set the mood for a terrific beach vacation. We made good use of the grill and new golf cart and loved the wrap-around porch with it's magnificent views especially at sunset.

We have stayed at Harbor Island before in a beachfront condo and thought that it was wonderful but this home surpassed that property exponentially. Frank the owner was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating. We would highly recommend this property and are already planning our next stay here !!!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house with all the necessities. Frank was a gracious host who was responsive and helpful throughout our entire stay. My family enjoyed taking golf cart rides around the property, watching the sunset on the porch, and watching the wildlife on the island. We will return again to this beautiful place.

Great house! Great location! Great service!

  • 5 of 5

First off I want to highlight the extreme helpfulness that Frank was in this whole process. This was our first dealing with Home Away and to be honest I was a bit skeptical. Frank immediately responded to all inquiries and was very helpful in answering all questions.

On to the house!! Very lovely 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage style home. WiFi and cable included. The AC worked great and the house was immaculate.

Plenty of space, plenty of linens and towels.

Nice little tidbits included, K Cups, mini moos, and even full packs of coffee for big brewer.

The golf cart seemed brand-new and made transportation on the island a breeze. The community pool is great and there are several beach access docks and multiple places to fish, crab, or just take in the beauty of the low country.

The location is definitely isolated, so you will want to grocery shop on the way in, although there are several restaurants a 15 to 20 minute drive inland(highly recommended Dockside).

What can I say, we fell in love with Harbor Island and want to come back annually, if this home is available again we will definitely stay here again.

Thanks Frank for helping my family make some wonderful memories!
