Tarpon Pond House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 -1/2 Baths (1/2 is Outside Shower & is WONDERFUL!!!)

If you are looking for a getaway that offers peace and solitude, in stylish and tasteful accommodations, then check our calendar for availability and make your reservation today! This lovely cottage has been updated and beautifully decorated in a fine southern coastal flair. It is surrounded by live oaks draped with Spanish moss, and is central to all of Seabrook Islands charms. Come, relax, and enjoy Seabrook's uncrowded beaches; take a morning stroll on the nature trail; kayak on the many creeks and waterways; or bike on the quiet streets of the island. Seabrook is a lovely place to honeymoon or to reconnect with your loved ones and build memories to last a lifetime. Plus, Low Country Retreat has 4 Genesis 29 Beach Bikes for your enjoyment! Don't worry about bringing your own bikes or having to rent them when you get here. They will be waiting on you and your family to tour the island! 6 Tommy Bahama Backpack Beach Chairs are also there so no need to pack your own. A brand new Weber Spirit Stainless Steel Grill has also recently added so you can grill those catches from the day or just a great steak or burger for the kids.

The Sleeping Loft is a huge hit with kids of all ages and is a completely customized with 4 built in galley style twin beds with drawers and cubby's for storage. Also in Kid Land there is a 32' Flat Screen/DVD Combo TV and X Box Gaming System so kids bring those games, or there are a few to choose from for your convenience! The master bedroom is bright and cheerful and has its own private fully renovated bathroom. It features a King Bed bed with a Thermarest mattress and down pillowtop. A flat screen HDTV in the corner will provide the morning news while you enjoy that first cup of coffee. The second bedroom offers a full size bed with a twin trundle bed.

Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, or have wine and an intimate conversation while seated inside the screened-in porch that features plenty of privacy. You can use the front porch for sitting in the sun, reading a book, or just to watch the deer as they wander by in the evenings. Inside the front door is the comfortable heart of the cottage, a spacious combined living room/dining room area with fireplace, HDTV with DVD, and plenty of seating. If you enjoy a good read, there is an excellent selection of books tucked away throughout the house and all of the books are appropriate for taking to the beach or porch. The galley kitchen is very functional and well equipped. You will also appreciate having a washer and dryer at your disposal.

If you wish, take advantage of the fabulous new community Lake House facility with its well-equipped fitness center, heated indoor pool, large outdoor pool, basketball court, playground, and many varied exercise classes. Or, explore old historic Charleston and discover the many fine restaurants, historic homes, old slave market, and art galleries. Guided horse and carriage tours of the battery and surrounding areas are also available and highly recommended. You will also want to visit the Ashley River Plantations at Drayton Hall, Magnolia House, and Middleton Place.

Amenity Cards are available for the Full Seabrook Island Club experience. We keep our rates low so you have the option!!! Passes are $25/day or $150/week.

Freshfields Village is located just outside the Seabrook Island gate and has many excellent shops, fine restaurants, a wonderful grocery with a large impressive wine selection, and a sports store where you can purchase everything you need for the beach. Don't miss Friday evening at Freshfields! Picnic on the lawn with a glass of wine and listen to a live band while the kids run, dance and play. Or take the kids to watch an outdoor movie on the lawn on Wednesday night.

Our cottage is meticulously maintained and frequently updated to maintain a fresh and stylish decor. The artwork, furnishings, and room colors have been carefully selected to reflect a sense of casual Low Country beach luxury. You'll find ceiling fans and ample lighting through-out. Underneath the cottage there is an enclosed utility shower that's perfect for rinsing off the beach sand before trekking upstairs. There's also plenty of room to stow away your gear--beach chairs, bikes, and fishing/crabbing equipment--or for children to play. And, covered parking for two cars is provided. Our cottage offers wireless high speed internet, satellite TV, local telephone service, and a gas grill. With the exception of beach towels, all linens are provided, and end-of-stay cleaning for 7 nights or more is included at no additional cost. Sorry but pets and smoking are not allowed.

About Harrison Summer

We love our Seabrook Island Retreat and love to share and make memories with our friends and guests! We cherish the low country and visit often through weekend trips and summer vacations with family and friends. The beaches of South Carolina and the Charleston area are especially significant to us because we both graduated from the College of Charleston. Our college tradition continues with our daughter (Hannah) who is a Junior at C of C! We adore the charm and grace of old historic Charleston and spent many hours wandering the alleys and streets, enjoying the night life, and admiring the architecture. We enjoy coming down to Seabrook Island every chance we get! We keep our home updated and decorated with casual elegance but you will find it is comfortable and a cozy place to relax.

Why Harrison Summer chose Seabrook Island

Seabrook is a private gated island community. Every effort has been taken to preserve the natural beauty of this low country paradise. We enjoy the centuries old live oaks, the vast salt marsh vistas, and the pristine beaches. Deer, raccoons, foxes, and bobcats are sighted daily here.

What makes this house unique

Seabrook is a wonderful escape. Our cottage is a great place to relax after spending time at the beach or visiting the historical Charleston sights nearby. Spring is our favorite time of year in Charleston. It is also the time of year that many of the homes and gardens in the 'South of Broad' district are open to the public. It is surprising what you'll find while wandering the small side streets between East Bay, Meeting, and King streets. We love the secret gardens and unique architecture of the downtown area. The self paced walking tours with guides that can be purchased from the Borders bookstore on Meeting St are a great way to get to know the history of Charleston. Just find a place to park your car and you can explore for hours. At the end of the day, we eat dinner at one of the many delightful restaurants near the old market. If we wish to escape the downtown crowd, we head back toward the cottage and stop by the Mustard Seed or Athens both on Maybank Hwy on James Island. Or cross over the bridge onto John's Island and eat at The Fat Hen or the Wild Olive!!! This could be the best food local food you will ever eat in South Carolina.

We Love Seabrook And This House!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the same week we had this year as last. Love, Love, Love it! The Beaches at Seabrook are so nice and clean. Their beach was voted one of the best in all SC! Your have to come to see it for yourself. No crowds just peaceful. So nice too that the home has beach bikes and plenty of beach chairs to use. With 4 kids it's a must to have that extra packing room in the car. This home has it all. Love it so more we booked same week next summer. The owners are so nice too. We feel part of their family. Best place on Seabrook for the $$$.

4th Trip To This House !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th time we have been to Laura & Harrison wonderful home on Seabrook. It gets better each time! They seem to have a knack for always adding features or just the little things to make this place the best spot on Seabrook for the money. Always clean, always a phone call away if we have a question and they have always sent us to the best places to eat. Just booked it again for September just after Labor Day. Stop searching folks...this place is a gem!

This is it!!!

  • 5 of 5

After searching for a few days, my wife and I found this home and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. From getting the arrangements made to pulling out of the driveway to return home, the experience is one we won't forget and are grateful to have had. Harrison and Laura provided a perfect space for my three girls to enjoy their first beach trip. The loft is an amazing space for children and the movie selection was fantastic! My wife and I are thankful for everything provided and the opportunity to stay in such a wonderful place. The amenity cards are a must have for the pools, facilities, and especially the golf. We look forward to a return trip in the near future. This is where you have to stay! Quit questioning yourself.Book it!

Quit Looking!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nicely furnished, clean, affordable, well located and quiet place to stay on Seabrook, quit looking because this is it. This home was the perfect size for the eight of us and I can't stress to you how wonderful the kids loft is. All four of our kids loved it and came home asking if we could duplicate it in our own house! The back porch is a dream- new, comfy furniture and lots of peace and quiet for coffee drinking, book reading and just plain ole' fashioned porch visiting! The TV wasn't turned on downstairs even once the whole week because we spent so much time out on the porch. We took frequent visits to Charleston and into John's Island for dining out, tours, etc. and the drive was never an issue- the drive is gorgeous with so many oak trees! We were glad to return to the respite of Seabrook everyday and end our days with sunset walks on the beach. Book it- you won't regret it!

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great house, really fabulous owners to work with. Nothing bad to say. Love the property rental came with the 4 beach bikes and chairs. We loved using the bikes to get around. Easy jaunt to beach where we then took long walks on this mild winter weekend. House newly upgraded so everything fresh looking and great decor. Totally worth it.
