About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Queen sofa bed, 1.5 Baths

This comfortable and completely tiled cottage-style ground-floor villa is in a private gated community. The condo has been freshly painted and redecorated. Private WIFI computer connection. Harbor offers 2 1/2 miles of private beach and ocean, bay, and marsh views. The furnishings have been chosen for your relaxing vacation time. There is one queen sofa bed. Our condo is an end unit with lots of light from extra side windows. We have a limited view of the ocean from our back deck however our view of the courtyard is very pretty. Unlike many condos, our deck leads out the back towards the pool and dune walkway to the beach. There are several boardwalks of which all condo and most home residents use to go to the beach. The pool is ~ 50 paces to the private Cedar Reef Villa pool. Take a short walk to the beach just over and through the beautiful natural dunes. Home of wildflowers; bushes; birds; rabbits; hermit crabs and more. Our rental also gives rights to the 'Harbor Island Beach & Tennis Club'. A short walk to the 'HIBT' Club offers a fitness center of cardio machines and a weight room. Bikes can be rented on the island

The large outdoor pool surrounded by lounge chairs and looks out over the marsh to the Harbor River. There is a kiddie pool and playground; tennis courts; basketball; shuffleboard; volleyball; horseshoe pit and golf chipping area. The club offers a grill for snacks and a small general store.

Buy fish fresh from the shrimp boat at Gay's Marina just before the Harbor Bridge. See schools of dolphins, crab from bridges, watch pelicans dive for fish, and enjoy sunsets framed by Palmetto trees.

Harbor Island is next to beautiful, unspoiled subtropic Hunting Island (see 'LINK' below for all the natural beauty, exploring, swimming etc. HUNTING ISLAND has to offer)and Fripp Island, South Carolina. 12 miles to historic Beaufort, 12 miles to Parris Island, 42 miles to Hilton Head, 69 miles to Charleston, and 57 miles to Savannah. Movies 'Forest Gump,' 'Prince of Tides,' 'Disney's Jungle Book,' and 'The Big Chill' were filmed on neighboring islands or in Beaufort.

Why BRIAN FOX chose Saint Helena Island

DESCRIPTION:

The condo is very clean and comfortable. The entire floor is tiled! This is great to keep the condo clean! The condo is an end unit with side windows that makes it very bright and spacious feeling. It is first floor with a front door at the parking lot and very convenient back door to pool and beach walk!

We have a new 50 inch TV.

The kitchen is well stocked with utensils etc. Shower towels and bed linens are supplied.

There are two private Cedar Reef pools. One pool is approximately 50 paces from the condo (see photos). The other is just on the other side of the condos for closer proximity for those guests.

There is also the larger main pool at the Harbor Island Pool and Racquet Club. There is also a kiddie pool and play ground, tennis, volleyball, basketball and a chipping area for golfing.

Tennis rackets, volleyball and basketballs are available for loan at the Club.

The clubhouse has a snack bar and exercise room, (as if walking on the beach isn't enough exercise).

We recently did some painting and updating.

It is situated 15 miles East of Beaufort, SC. It is midway between

Charleston to the north and Savannah to the south. Hilton Head is

mid way between Harbor Island and Savannah. Therefore it is situated

some what between all of them. It is a pretty, secluded island.

PS: The tax, gate pass and cleaning fees are fees we cannot get around. The property is managed and cleaning is contracted. This guarantees that when you arrive, the condo, bath towels, kitchen utensils, are clean. There is a bar of soap in each bathroom, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap ready for your use. Please write or call if you have any questions.

I will check back with you in a few days if I don't hear from you.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over spring break and it was lovely ! The bed was so comfy ! The layout was spacious and we had everything we needed ! The area was quiet .... honestly I don’t remember the last time I slept so good ! I totally recommend this ! The only thing I would say was that the internet didn’t work the greatest .... But who comes to the beach to surf the internet ? Overall we totally loved it and would 100% go back !

Comfortable, functional, clean home in near-paradise

  • 4 of 5

The owners are extremely helpful and communicative. The amenities and cleanliness were excellent. It is only four instead of five starts due to a paucity of certain supplies, which I would not be surprised if they rectify. The area has the most uniquely large and deserted beaches we have ever seen (we were there in late March), and you can ride your bike directly to Hunting Island next door to enjoy their miles of mostly unpaved (mountain bikes work best) and paved trails through tropical-like forests to more gorgeous beaches. If you enjoy beach walking, you could do it for hours all day and see very few other people. A true "getaway." Beaufort is nice, too, with decent restaurants. We spent a day in Charleston, which was great, but it is a two-hour drive, all told (four hours round trip). Savannah would probably be a better bet for a day trip.

Fall on Harbor Island

  • 5 of 5

Once again, our visit to Brian's condo was wonderful! He was so accommodating even in the aftermath of hurricane Irma. My mother and I take an annual trip to the island and just so happened to plan to go after the hurricane hit. Brian and his wife checked everything out to be sure we would have a pleasant, safe stay and agreed to rent to us for our requested dates.

The condo is clean, well maintained, comfortable, and lovely! We had one hiccup when contractors doing repairs due to the hurricane cut a water line which in turn shut our water off for a few hours. Brian was quick to notify me that there was an issue and wanted to make sure all was well.

Great place and we will be back to Brian's for a third time very soon!

Good place on Harbor Island

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the community. We walked to the beach a couple of times and stayed the day. The condo and pool area was great. We were disappointed that Hunting Island was closed due to road erosion. Overall a great experience.
