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.

Our stay in April 2016

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house.

Nicely furnished, very comfortable with everything we needed. Loved the golf cart for quick ride to the pool, beach and around the island. Mostly we loved the availability of Frank. We had questions and he was always available and friendly before we booked, during and after our stay as well. Will recommend this house to friends and family. Thank you Frank for lovely week end.

Beautiful home! Lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March during Spring Break. And were very glad that we did! The house was better than we had hoped. It was lovely -clean, bright, roomy and airy. There was a well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, lots of bath towels, beach towels and even beach chairs to take to the nearby beach. We loved the wrap around porch and rocking chairs. We often sat outside to enjoy the view of the tidal creek and to watch for the occasional egret or alligator. The golf cart was definitely a bonus. It made the short trip to the beach fun. We also appreciated the location. It was a very short drive to Hunting Island State Park with its beautiful marine forest and beach. Beaufort, with its live oak trees, shopping, restaurants and beautiful Civil War era homes was also a short drive away. Frank was the perfect host. He was available to answer any questions but very respectful of our privacy.

The Yonces

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to spend our Thanksgiving. It could not have been more perfect! It is an emaculate and well-maintained home. The owner went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs were met. The weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy the outdoors the entire weekend. The beach was beautiful and the fishing was awesome! I would highly recommend!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was wonderful. We stayed while in town for my son's Marine Corps graduation. Frank was very nice and informative about the area. The house was very clean and well stocked will all the supplied needed for our stay, Actually more supplies than what you would get at other places! The golf cart was handy to tour the island. Lots of beach access areas, with beautiful beaches. We loved watching two dozen dolphins play not far off the beach. At the house, we were able to fish in the side yard, catching many crabs. It was a wonderful mini-vacation and we would stay here again.

A Little Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Frank, our stay in SC and the yellow house. Frank was very helpful and readily available throughout our week to answer any questions that we had.

The house was clean and had everything we could possibly need, including beach towels! To be honest, we were quite surprised at how well stocked the house was compared to other places we have stayed. Our children especially loved the upstairs loft. Our entire family loved the golf cart. It made the short drive to the pool and beach so much fun! As we talked to other renters, we quickly realized how lucky we were that our rental included the golf cart.

The beach and pool were wonderful. We highly recommend walking the beach at 7:30 AM when the volunteers check the sea turtle nests. We were able to see baby sea turtles released into the ocean. We also saw countless crabs, a star fish and an alligator during our stay. We quickly learned that when the tide goes out, it goes WAY out. This was a new experience for us and it was truly so awesome. We were able to walk far out and explore the little patches of sea water and critters left behind.

We would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much for everything, Frank!

Notes:
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).
