About the property

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' (pools are typically

open and available from Easter or April 1st through the first

weekend of November)

• Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club (BRC)

• fitness center

• tennis courts

• putting greens

• sand volleyball court

• basketball court

• island store (open seasonally)

• café (open seasonally)

• 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 Saint Helena Island

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.

Nice and private...

  • 4 of 5

Lots to do, enjoyed the beach...bathroom showers are really small to what we're use to and the frogs and love bugs make their presence known.

Wonderful 2-Bedroom Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for a week in July. The owner was real easy to work with and the instructions for accessing the Condo were spot on. Everything about the Condo exceeded our expectations. From the 3 comfortable beds, the 2 and 1/2 baths, to the deck furniture, this condo will not disappoint.

This was our 4th year vacationing on Harbor Island. The uncrowded beaches, the quite pools, and the relaxed feeling that sets in as soon as you pass the security station, makes this a yearly destination.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our recent stay in Harbor Island. Apartment is well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. Easy beach access and the nearby pool with pergola is a gem for the hot South Carolina afternoons. Easy access to Hunting Island & Beaufort. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing low country vacation.
