About John Berggren

Our family vacationed on Harbor in 2005 and left as homeowners. Currently, we aren't able to visit as often as we like and decided to open our home for others to enjoy.

John Berggren purchased this cottage in 2005

Why John Berggren chose Saint Helena Island

Harbor Island is a peaceful respite for families to spend time together enjoying the outdoors. It's reminiscent of times past.

What makes this cottage unique

When looking at homes to purchase, we fell in love with the spectacular views from the porches of 71 Harbor Drive and never tire of the incredible beauty of the marsh and the low country.

Amazing !!

  • 5 of 5

Our son graduated from Marine Bootcamp, Parris Island. Our experience was wonderful and John was very accommodating . The house was comfortable and amenities were not lacking! The house was close to Parris Islsnd- 25 minutes. Pool on the property and the Hunting Island beach was less than 10 min.

It was beautiful and memorable.

Best Home on Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends have several years of enjoying a summer "stay-cation" on Harbor Island. This is by far the preferred home for our majority! The main floor is open with a good design for flow around the kitchen and porches. The large table and seats at the kitchen bar allow for the comfortable and simultaneous feeding for at least twelve (eight at the table, four at the bar). Plus, there is a table for four lucky ones on the porch. You will find the causeway breezes consistent and phenomenal! Off one side, you can relax and enjoy coffee while looking over the creek and marsh to the Harbor River sound. To the opposite direction one can enjoy a view of the Osprey nest, Hunting Island and the Atlantic Ocean. The layout of the home allows for the enjoyment of gathering with others, yet there are a variety of nooks and tuck-aways that makes this home also accommodating to those who desire a time of solitude or quietude. The owners are very responsive. Their love and affection of this home and Harbor is apparent in the care and maintenance they put into this residence. We look forward to enjoying more time at our favorite stay-cation home away from home!

Best house yet!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth trip to Harbor Island. We have stayed in 4 different houses and 2 different condos. This house was hands down the best house. The views are spectacular. Not may places on the island provide you with beautiful marsh and river views and a lovely ocean view. The porches on this house are amazing. Perfect for watching shrimp boats, lounging on the couch with a good book, watching the sunset and star gazing. Even on the hottest days the breezes were amazing so that we were always able to enjoy them. The layout of the house is perfectly designed for adults, teenagers, and young children. The furnishings are lovely and very comfortable.

We were there with our two teenage nephews and our three young sons. The location of the crabbing dock was perfect. Many hours were spent checking the crab pot, searching for alligators in the creek (which we saw several times), and watching the osprey nest ( We had the thrill of seeing the babies take their first flight). The golf cart was perfect for exploring the island and evening sunset rides. The bikes were so great for the kids to have some freedom to ride around the island.

I hesitate to recommend this amazing house for purely selfish reasons because this house will always be our first choice when we return to Harbor Island!

Clean, very well furnished home with wonderful porches overlooking marshland

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at your beautiful home.The owner has furnished it with comfy couches and even left spices on the counter and dressings in the frig! You could tell it is used by mostly family and well taken care of. We have five kids in their teens who had a wonderful time. They especially loved tooling around the island on the golf cart. The ocean is a pretty good walk from the house, but the golf cart made it easy. We would definitely stay here again.

Harbor Island
Car: necessary

Harbor Island is a gated community with no commercial development built around the vast marshes and three and a half miles of a beautiful constantly changing beach. The Beach and Racquet Club has an adult pool, baby pool (18' deep), playground, small exercise room, beach volleyball court, tennis, and basketball courts. There are

views of the ocean and St. Helena Sound across the marsh from both decks, kitchen and master bedroom. Our home has an open plan living/dining room and kitchen, decks and rocking chairs on two floors, open, airy and bright! The house is a short walk or bike ride to the beach and pool. There is a golf cart available to explore the island or drive to the beach or Beach Club.

Harbor Island is about 15 miles outside of Beaufort, SC - a beautiful quiet historic town filled with restaurants and quaint shops. The Chocolate Tree is not to be missed. Savannah is about an hour drive, Charleston is about an hour and 45 minute drive, and Hilton Head Outlets are about 45 minutes away for day trips. However, you won't want to leave the peaceful quiet of Harbor Island.
