Beach House was perfect for the 13 of us!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Great South Beach House!! Our new Marine was able to get the peace and rest he was longing for, and also got to catch up on his sports on the huge flat screen. All 13 of us enjoyed eating breakfast lunch and dinner several times in the dining area and outside screened in porch. Our beds were very comfy with plenty of pillows and blankets! The small kids had a blast in the huge garden tub on bottom floor! We absolutely loved the views and the private beach access was a bonus! We enjoyed our first trip to South Carolina and made so many wonderful memories. Thanks Alan and Charlotte we had a great time in your beautiful Home!!!

Super clean

  • 5 of 5

I am pleased to write a review for this property. My family has rented cabins from VRBO for the last 10 years for snow skiing. This unit has been by far the cleanest we have rented. The owners also were very friendly, almost like family.

We rented the beach house because my son was graduating from Marine basic training. We stayed 5 days. It's about 20 mins from Parris Island, and we never had problems with traffic. The beach house is also (almost) right on the water. It takes less than 5 mins to walk. It is on a private island, which meant passes for the vehicles, but that was not too much of a problem, and the property owners were quick to arrange any last minute car passes. It also meant less traffic on the roads. The water was perfect for smaller children to play in, as there was not depth and they could wade out a little ways.

I would recommend this beach house.

A perfect big family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sister and our kids had a birthday weekend for our mom here. We invited some aunts and had a wonderful time in the low country. It was the perfect house for cooking a nice fresh seafood meal and then staying up late laughing on the porch while the kids slept soundly. Close to the beaches and access to a great pool -- fun for kids and adults!

Excellent view and plenty of room...

  • 5 of 5

My wife, toddler, and mother-in-law took a trip to Harbor Island and stayed here for a full week. Although it was in late December, and the weather was (as expected) a little challenging, we had a blast. We love to cook, and the kitchen was well equipped for our purposes. The open floor plan allowed me to avoid feeling claustrophobic when the weather pinned us inside. The view from the patios on both floors was excellent! I know many people want to be directly on the beach, etc., but after this trip I think this house has the best of both worlds. We could see the marsh, the ocean, and hunting island across the river/creek, and if it were warmer we would never hardly have left the porches. On the clearest night, from the porch the stars were unbelievable! I've spent countless nights camping across the country, and this night landed Harbor Island in my top 10 for sure...

Fun, relaxing vacation in spacious home with view!

  • 4 of 5

This home is large, with plenty of sleeping room and space to hang out. The porches are great with views of the marsh to sit and watch tide go in and out. Island pools were very nice, and we enjoyed the inlet beach as well as the ocean. Loved driving the gold cart around the island. We had a great vacation. We had a few problems (that have since been corrected) and the owners were very responsive and helpful. We did NOT want to leave at the end of the week!
