About Frances Nicholson

We are natives of South Carolina and have always loved the Lowcountry. Harbor Island was an instant attraction to our family as we love the beach and family time together. No need for fancy clothes .... a swimsuit, pj's and a toothbrush and you are good to go! We love how uncrowded the beach is all the time!

Frances Nicholson purchased this house in 1998

Why Frances Nicholson chose Beachwalk

Our home is located on the best part of the beach at Harbor Island and also within walking distance of the pools.

What makes this house unique

Our home is professionally decorated and not your "typical" rental home. Custom made bedding and window treatments throughout the home and you feel like you are part of our family when staying at The Southern Pearl! We have a large family and understand the needs of bringing kids and babies to the beach and strive to make our home a memorable experience for your family of all ages. For older adults that don't like getting out in the sun, the screen porch is ideal for sitting and watching the comings and goings on the beach as well as watching the dolphins. The custom made bed swing is my favorite spot!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 11 (including two 15 month old boys) we found the Southern Pearl to be absolutely perfect! My 6 yr old grandson enjoyed our vacation and even got a bit of a learning experience as well. There were more turtle nests than we have ever seen and we even got to see some of the newly hatched baby turtles make their way to the ocean. The house could not have been any better equipped for our family. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
