VOTED: #2 Secret Beach in the SouthEast by Southern Living Magazine!!!

Nestled in the Lowcountry of South Carolina sits Harbor Island, SC along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. We would like to welcome you to our Haven. This large Pelican Point home is a popular vacation choice because of its privacy, spaciousness, high quality furnishings, and stunning views. You will spend hours relaxing on the screened porch admiring the oceanfront view. Shaped by wind and water, the southern end of the 2.5 mile Island is a constantly changing vista of sea and sand, marsh and creek, sky and light. Here, the tidal waters of Johnson's Creek flow to the Atlantic to create this very private, quiet, natural area of the Island that is perfect for kayaking, shrimping and fishing, digging for clams, gathering muscles and of course crabbing. Our 'home away from home' is exceptionally well furnished and appointed and comes complete with books and games to make your beach experience complete. Take a leisurely ride around the Naturalistic Island in our four person golf cart that we offer to our guests upon arrival. Our home sleeps 8 with a king sized bed in the downstairs master, 2 twin beds in the other downstairs bedroom, a queen bed in the upstairs bedroom and a queen size bed in the other upstairs bedroom with two bunk beds. It also features a private master bath with a large walk in shower and double sink vanity that has been recently updated, another full bath downstairs and a full bath upstairs. The living area is complete with a flat screen TV, high speed internet connection (WiFi), and phone line. Televisions in all bedrooms, with the exception of one. Kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen appliances and equipment. The panoramic water views can be enjoyed not only from the screened porch and deck, but the living area, dining area, master bedroom and upstairs guest bedroom, too. The other two guest bedrooms enjoy views of an expansive tidal marsh. The front porch is also a great spot to kick back on the swing, with your favorite beverage, to watch the changing marsh with its abundant birdlife and the sunset. The home also offers a charcoal grill and an outside shower with hot/cold water. A golf cart is available for your use during your stay to scoot around the Island in to enjoy all the Nature that Harbor Island has in store. Your rental includes full access to the Harbor Island Beach & Racquet Club, where you will find an Olympic sized pool overlooking the marshes of the Harbor River, a kiddie pool, a sand volleyball court, tennis/basketball courts, putting range, small sundries shop, fitness center, bike rentals and more. A short drive into Beaufort will offer you restaurants, shopping, views along the Bayfront, Festivals, horse and carriage rides, and history of the Lowcountry.

This property will offer you a unique vacation experience and will invite you to make this your destination for years to come.

A minute's walk over a boardwalk takes you to a small, sandy beach overlooking Hunting Island and Johnson's Creek, and the beautiful Atlantic. A growing new tidal marsh that lies between the shore and the ocean is a favorite ground for dolphin, herons, egrets, and other shore birds.

About Betsy Hill

My wife, Brenda & I have been coming down to Harbor Island for over thirty years. We fell in love with the tranquility and beauty of this Lowcountry Island and decided to purchase a property in the 1990s. Since then, we have owned three condos and now a home on the island. We enjoy relaxing and spending time with family and friends here at Harbor. I served on the Island Board for a number of years as Treasurer. We hope that you will enjoy Harbor Island and its beauty and tranquility as we have over the many years.

Betsy Hill purchased this house in 2005

Why Betsy Hill chose Saint Helena Island

Traveled here for over thirty years with our children and decided to purchase this 4 bedroom/3 bath home on the south end of the island. It boasts beautiful oceanfront views as well as marsh views from the back of the home. Wonderful place to bring our children and grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

The home has an ideal layout. 2 bedrooms up, 2 down and plenty of porches to admire the gorgeous views. Also, a big plus was the outdoor shower which definitely helps wash the sand off little toes after a long day on the beach.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting HI for over 20 years and have rented everything from condos to homes. This property was by far the best of the places I have stayed. Betsy was wonderful and very helpful with information regarding recent storms. The home was updated and supplied with essentials. The decor was beautiful and the view was incomparable.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a wonderful week of vacation and would certainly recommend this home away from home to others! The house had everything we needed for two families meeting for the week. Beach and bath towels, beach chairs and beach toys were all provided and in great condition. We loved having the use of the golf cart to drive around the island. The views were beautiful from both sides of the house and the house itself was updated and beautifully decorated. The only thing to note is that the beach is not right out your door. There is a little bit of a walk across a boardwalk, which was hard for the older members of our family to make. As a fix, we drove a couple minutes down the road to the beautiful Huntington Island State Park where we had easy beach access, great waves for the kids and beautiful views of the lighthouse.

Huge thanks to the home's owner, Betsy, for being constantly available to us and letting us stay in her family's amazing home. We couldn't have asked for a better week!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our friends at this beautiful property. We love Harbor Island and have stayed here several times. This place offered sunrises as well as sunsets. The boardwalk to the beach was a short one and we walked the beach often. We will definitely be looking towards Pelican Point for future stays!

Just spent 3 beautiful days at Haven By The Sea! The house itself is set up for a relaxing stay that takes advantage of the perfection of Harbor Island. The house was clean and had everything we needed. We ate all our meals on the screened porch overlooking the dunes and beach. The back deck with the same view is not big, but just the right size for the four of us. The deck in the front of the house overlooks the marsh, so if the wind was a little too much for us on the back deck, we simply moved to the front for a different spectacular view. The bedrooms are comfortable.

The weather forecast for our time at the beach had been for almost 100% chance of rain for the 2 main days we were there and we were worried we would be huddled inside playing board games for most of the stay. Owner Betsy told me that Harbor Island didn't always subscribe to what the weathermen predicted, and she was so right! We had wonderful weather for our adventuring! We spent our time biking the expansive beach and roads of Harbor Island, kayaking the protected lagoon at nearby Hunting Island, walking on the uncrowded beach, and star-gazing from the deck at night. Our stay was the perfect mix of heart-pumping activity, awe-inspiring beauty, and relaxation. It was a bird haven for my bird loving in-laws.

Would definitely stay here again!

Great property and location. Very relaxing area.

  • 4 of 5

A peaceful and private community not far from stores and restaurants. The house was very nice and well equipped and very clean. We enjoyed the stay very much and would consider a 2nd or 3rd visit. The only issue we had was getting the house details (directions, accesses, and community parking passes) in a timely manner. Directions were finally given to us the day before our trip. We were held at the gate for about 30 minutes waiting on the parking passes to be approved. If the VRBO system was an issue, hopefully next go around all will be fixed.
