A short twenty minute drive from Harbor Island, the city of Beaufort awaits you with an abundance of history, art, culture, and, natural beauty. It is the second oldest city in South Carolina, with more homes on the National Historic Register than any town its size. Carriage and walking tours are available within the downtown area providing you with the background history of the 'Spanish moss' neighborhoods where homes date back to the 1700s. The downtown area provides you with a shopping district where antique stores, galleries, and boutique shops abound along with casual eateries, cozy bistros, and, world class restaurants.

Harbor Island has the advantage of being right around the corner from Hunting Island State Park. It has the distinction of having the only lighthouse in the state of South Carolina where you can actually walk to the very top to look out for miles and miles in all directions - talk about your Ultimate View!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house and the views were beautiful! Quiet area with great amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had plenty of room for the 9 of us to relax and sleep comfortably. It was a great location for us while in the area for our son's graduation from Parris Island. Would highly recommend! Robert was fantastic, quick to respond and very helpful, as well!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several homes on Harbor Island and this is by far the best one! The view is amazing! Fully stocked kitchen! the golf cart was great for trips to the beach and pool. This is a great rental if you are bringing guests! We brought my mother-in-law and it was almost like having our own living space upstairs! The kids loved the loft area as a hang out. The bugs are horrific at night, but we have no complaints about the home and will defiantly return! The only thing I might add is a curtain on the doors going outside in the master bedroom upstairs at least. The sun rises bright and early and shines right through in your face ( although it was a slight bonus that it woke us up in time to go to the beach in time for a sea turtle nest inventory!) We got to see five sea turtles on our trip! The pictures do not do this home justice!

great house with great views of marsh and ocean

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Harbor Island and both the house and island were what we were looking for. The house was very nice and roomy to hold our 7 adults and 3 kids. The beach was amazingly not crowded at all and the water was very calm which was perfect for letting small children play in. The golf cart was a nice perk to shuttle everyone to and from the beach. The property manager was also very responsive and great to work with.

If you want an incredible view, this is the house.

  • 5 of 5

This house was the happiest surprise of a long, hot summer. The view of the sea framed by spring green marsh--unforgettable. You could sit on the porches of this house all day long. Plenty of space for a family gathering, well-appointed. Our children loved riding the golf cart to the beach! Best beach family experience we've had.

Wonderful Stay for Our Large Family Group

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and well maintained. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect for our family of 11. The common areas were roomy enough for late-night card tournaments and the boys loved exploring the property around the marshes.

Just a few words to the wise. The bedrooms facing east in the house are light and airy and have spectacular views of the marsh, ocean and Hunting Island. However, you should be an early riser because the early morning sunshine is right in your face! Perhaps it is a Low County wake-up call? Also, we all enjoyed the porches for their views as well. Be aware of the mosquitoes. Make sure you bring repellant or buy some from the convenience store just minutes from the entrance of Harbor Island.

The facilities on the Island are well kept and we particularly enjoyed watching the alligators in the marshes and cooling off in the evenings at the pool. The proximity to Hunting Island is always a bonus. That beach is so beautiful and great for the family.

All in all, it was an awesome place to stay!
