Absolutely beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The house was beautiful. Furnished perfectly. It was just like being at home. We cooked and everything we needed was there. Robert was a pleasure to work with, hospitable and thought of everything. He even supplied us with things to do and where to go while in Beaufort! My family loved it so much we are planning on returning in the upcoming year. I highly recommend this property.

Perfect vacation house for two families

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Harbor Island. The lay out of the house was perfect for two families. We enjoyed spending everyday at the beach and pool. It was nice to go to a community pool that was not over crowded. Robert was wonderful to work with on our stay at their home. He provided us with a list a great restaurants and fun things to do with the kids. He is also very response to all questions. Thank you Robert for helping provide us with a wonderful layed back vacation.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean. The property is well maintained. Our family has vacationed on Harbor Island for almost 10 years. The home is located in a more secluded area of the island. Gorgeous marsh view from the screened porch! We had a wonderful time! We will consider this property again in the future.

Great Stay

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely vacation home, while visiting for our son's graduation from Marine's Basic Training. The owner, Mr. Gossett, was very informative and accommodating about places to eat and things to do. We had a great time!

you with an abundance of history, art, culture, and natural beauty.

It is the second oldest city in South Carolina, with more homes on

area providing you with background history of the 'Spanish mossed'

neighborhoods where homes date back to the 1700's. Also, 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.
