Overview

Beaufort area Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

The living room, king master bedroom suite, and panoramic deck all have completely unobstructed ocean views. Don’t be fooled: this Cedar Reef villa building is one of only two (D and K) that are TRUE oceanfront (we are D building). All of these other villa buildings have 1 to 3 buildings between them and the beach, AND sit perpendicular to the beach!

Located on private, gated Harbor Island, this villa is just steps away from:

• ocean and 3.2 miles of private, secluded, white, sandy beach

• 4 pools including one “Olympic” and one 'baby'

• Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club (BRC)

• fitness center

• tennis courts

• putting greens

• sand volleyball court

• basketball court

• island store

• café

• playground

Audio-Visual: We added a 42-inch flat screen TV with cable television and DVD in the family room. Each bedroom has a flat screen cable TV. There is WIRELESS hi-speed Internet access and FREE long distance telephone calls within the continental U.S.!

Renovations: Since we acquired the property, we have updated the kitchen. The kitchen includes full-sized Whirlpool Duet washer/dryer, over the range microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, crockpot, new cabinets, new counters. We have re-painted the entire unit and added laminate wood floors on the entire first floor. We have replaced the entire heat/air conditioning systems, hot water heater and refrigerator. We replaced the carpeting in the upstairs hallway and both bedrooms as well as the stairs. We added a new L-shaped sofa with queen pull out bed.

Unit location: The entrance to our unit is located on the second floor of the building. It is a townhouse style unit with the bedrooms on the second floor of the unit and the kitchen, dining room and family room on the entry level. This allows for spectacular views over the dunes of the ocean and also allows the unit to feel more spacious and to give some separation from guests trying to sleep vs guests awake in the living area.

About Katie Thompson

Aaron & Katie Thompson have been married for 24 years and counting. We have two daughters, Sydney & Lydia. We live in Maryland. We all love the beach and water activities. Our favorite time of each year is when we can come to South Carolina to spend time together relaxing and enjoying all of the activities that the Low Country has to offer.

Katie Thompson purchased this condo in 2008

Why Katie Thompson chose Beaufort area

We have been travelling to South Carolina for vacation ever since Katie's parents moved from Maryland to South Carolina in 1993. We love the weather, the southern charm and the unique peace and quiet of the low country beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow ... It is absolutely gorgeous here at Harbor Island! We love the condo. A perfect blend of being away from everything and being close to interesting points. I think we may have to make your condo a yearly destination now! We tried Top Sail and Ocean City, Maryland but we like this locale the best.

A great escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time my wife and I have stayed at this condo.

The unit is well cared for and very comfortable. The condos in the "D" building face the ocean, beach., and sunrise.This condo is in the "D" building.

Another feature worth noting is the 2 bedroom condos start on the 2nd floor and the bedrooms are on the 3rd floor. The master bedroom has windows facing the ocean. The living room sliders open to a private deck on the 2nd floor and provide a nice view of the ocean. I enjoyed the sunrise every morning from the deck while we were there. Staying on a private island with security at the entrance helps you relax and enjoy your vacation. One of the main attractions that my wife and I enjoy is the beach and the island wildlife. There is a bird nesting site at the end of the beach and plenty of different birds to observe.

This is not Myrtle Beach party-land.This is an island to relax and enjoy the surroundings. There was very seldom more than a dozen people on the beach.

The condo is very comfortable, clean, and well stocked. We have always enjoyed our stay here. Katie (the owner)has always been gracious and very easy to work with.

We have always enjoyed our vacations here in the Low Country. Just thinking about vacation helps us get through the cold winters in Massachusetts.

I highly recommend staying here.

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to celebrate 4 years of marriage somewhere peaceful, on the beach, but still close enough to her favorite boutiques in Charleston and Savannah. This place was perfect. Downtown Beaufort is so cool! The property is as close to the beach as you can get (maybe a 3 minute walk). We will definitely be recommending this place and plan on coming back.

Peaceful and Serene

We spent 3 months in this beautiful condo while house hunting here on the Sea Islands. Wonderful walks on the beach, beautiful views of the ocean from this condo. Nicely maintained with everything you need.

Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Your condo was a perfect fit for our needs. We traveled to South Carolina for my daughter's Parris Island Marine Corps graduation but also wanted a bit of additional family vacation; The pools and beach fit these needs perfectly.The property was clean and ready for us upon arrival, and best of all, the check out procedures were extremely easy! I would definitely recommend this location to others and would return if we're ever in the area again. Thank you!!

Lovely Location

  • 4 of 5

I would like to have cleaned a little more throughout the week. There was a broom, but I couldn't find a dust pan. There was no dishwasher soap, soap in the bath, toilet paper, trash bags, or laundry soap. We did find a grocery to purchase these items, but it would have been nice to at least have toilet paper and trash bags provided.

The condo is nice, the view is lovely, and the location is great.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our condo. Under "local suggestions" on the hospitality section of our website (available to all booked guests) we offer lots of suggestions including nearby grocery stores, mini marts, restaurants, shopping, things to do, and more. Guests do provide their own food and other supplies for their stay, although there is a starter supply of toilet paper, paper towels, etc. There is a broom and dust pan in the entry closet as well as a vacuum cleaner in the upstairs bedroom closet in case guests want to do some cleaning during their stay.
