About Joy Pilz

Thanks for visiting my vrbo website. I am blessed to be able to share God's wonderful island creation. Harbor Island is an absolutely beautiful private island & beach.

My family and I call Statesboro, Ga on Cypress Lake home....However, our "Bird's I Vue'' is our special place at the beach. I am so very easily drawn to both places to enjoy the wonders of this earth.

After 30+ years of children in my daily life, I retired as a preschool owner/director/teacher in 2000.

My career has been filled w/ preschoolers plus 56 years of marriage.

Early retirement has given me the opportunity to be a 'Granny' to my 3 wonderful grandsons & 1 God sent granddaughter.

#1 on my 'Bucket List', ENJOY A SLOWER PACE.

Harbor Island has been the solution to #1 on my 'Bucket List'.

#2 - Relax, Enjoy = Make more 'Treasured Memories'

I am pleased to share 'Bird's I Vue'', a part of my life's blessings, with each of you.

Joy Pilz purchased this condo in 2003

Why Joy Pilz chose Beaufort area

I shopped for many miles up & down the Georgia and Carolina coasts to find just the right place for investment & enjoyment. The minute I walked into this condo I knew it was 'the one'. The view ('Bird's I Vue'') was worth it all. However, the condo needed a lot of work. So I put on my creative hat to make fun out of all the work that was required. Gradually the updates have been coming. Thanks to my renters it possible for me to remodel, update and decorate creatively..

I am pleased to find that my renters have been respectful of the condo property. Therefore, because of renters favorable history a property damage deposit is only required if you bring your pet...and I have found that pets have not been a problem. Well behaved renters & their pets are welcomed. Please make yourself at home. Welcome to Harbor Island's 'Bird's I Vue'

What makes this condo unique

INQUIRE ABOUT TRADING SPACES. Willing to trade day for day @ your date of convenience. We have successfully traded w/owners in several states. We enjoy traveling. Trading w/ other owners has been a wonderful way to vacation! Call or email if interested in getting on my trade list.

Guestbook comments from the owner

thanks you for your nice comments. Very glad you enjoyed your stay. Glad the beach and condo was all you had hoped for. Best Wishes for the rest of Summer '16. You are more than welcomed back anytime. Return stay = 10% discount on 4 night or more. Joy

Great R & R

  • 4 of 5

This trip was a solo retreat to recharge. Miss Joy's condo was perfect for this endeavor. It's quite cozy and furnished whimsically with lots of flamingos and palm trees. It's a short walk to the beach along a boardwalk over the dunes. The beach was never crowded which made for pleasant walking. The area has loads of wildlife to view, especially a vibrant bird habitat on the property, viewed when walking along the neighborhood street. During my visit all the cable and internet was down, which enforced the solitude for sure. This was not through any fault of the owners. All in all, this was a comfortable and relaxing place to visit. Best suited for a single or perhaps a couple. The development is kid-friendly with pools and activities galore. This unit has plenty of chairs and floats for the beach. If I were to change anything at all about the unit it would be to declutter it, but that's personal taste entirely.

Ms. Joy's condo is perfect if you want peace, tranquility, and great beach/pool access in adorable, fun surroundings. This place has so much personality and the colorful, thoughtful touches are what make it so special. You really feel like you are in the tropics with the flamingos, parrots, and palm decor. It is such a warm and inviting place and you can tell that a whole lot of heart was put into making it that way. The beach is just a short walk away and you have quick and easy access to the two pools near the condos. The Beach and Racquet Club is also within easy walking distance. Its location on the island is ideal. Also, the elevator makes getting to and from the third floor easy. From the balcony you have a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool. You will definitely want to come back again and again.

Our review title is Joy because Birds I Vue made us happy to find a beach rental clean, comfortable, & pet friendly. Harbor Island gave us a safe and secure feeling. The view from the room was amazing and the king bed very comfortable. It was fun looking at the decorations in each room. The owner provided good customer service. She has created a truly unique & special place!
