Harbor Island is a private barrier island 15 miles east of Beaufort, SC. Our gated community features a long sandy beach and 24/7 security.
We are a natural habitat for native and migrating birds and have an active loggerhead turtle protection program.
We have lots of outdoor activities, i.e. fishing, crabbing, ‘shrimping’ or boating. For those who prefer freshwater activities, the BRC (Beach & Racquet Club) offers a large and a kiddy pool, a souvenir and snack shop, and a beach volleyball area. In addition, we have tennis, basketball and shuffleboard courts.
The BRC features a weight room, treadmills, and stationary bicycles. Check with the BRC for bike rentals and questions about any of the activities listed above.
Our 3rd floor (top floor) home is accessible by elevator and is uniquely positioned for viewing brilliant sunrises and spectacular sunsets. Our 'Sunset Lounge', located just outside our front door, features a 3rd floor outdoor living/viewing area that no other unit offers.
The sole bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and full bath with walk-in shower. Another half bath is just steps down the hall.
You'll love the comfortable feel of our home. Snuggle up with a book in the corner chaise or spend an afternoon at one of three nearby pools or our not-so-crowded beach.

About Mary Ann
We are both retired and live in upstate SC.
Mary Ann purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Mary Ann chose Saint Helena Island
Our home is exactly what you want it to be: comfortable, quiet, romantic, the list is yours to choose from. It's close to great beaches and golf courses and just in between Charleston and Savannah. Harbor is truly a community for people who love the beach. Although there are no golf courses on our island, you'll find plenty to do. We have bike rentals, tennis courts, a gym, three pools, sunrises, sunsets, and peace and quiet. Design your own vacation. But, make sure you come back for another visit.
What makes this Villa unique
We love Harbor's beach and it changes from season to season. In spite of the changes, one thing will remain. There's always a large sandbar that goes off into the east that will allow you to walk so far off shore that you can look back and see the Hunting Island lighthouse. If you, like us, are golfers, you've got the courses at Fripp Island that are just 10 minutes away. We like the public course at Parris Island. It's a real treat to visit the island for golf as well as to visit the Marine Corp Museum.

Excellent location/ lovely condo
We have stayed here several times and would highly recommend it. The location is superb with easy access to Hunting Island State Park as well as the charming towns of Beaufort, Savannah, and Charleston. Mary Ann is easy to work with and will do everything to insure your stay is fabulous.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Harbor Island and exploring the surrounding islands and area. The villa was just as described and met our expectations. It was very clean and well equipped which made for a very nice stay.
Please come stay with us again!
My 19 year old daughter and I took a girl's trip to South Carolina and found this sweet little home away from home on VRBO. It was perfect - in every way. Out of the normal rat race which allowed a truly restful vacation - yet incredibly friendly and accommodating with all the amenities we wanted. (pool, laundry, easy access to shopping and restaurants, etc..) The locals were fabulous and my daughter got contact info for the local volunteer turtle recovery team led by Fran Nolan and she participated in relocating 3 turtle nests on the beach. Incredible opportunity!! We enjoyed many walks on the beach, were daily residents pool side during our whole stay, road-tripped to Hilton Head for shopping, rode the trolley in Savannah and learned so much about our history, and last but not least - the trip to Hunting Island to climb the Lighthouse. I highly recommend this venue not only for the location, but for the incredibly smooth sailing on booking it, paying for it and getting wonderfully quick responses to my questions - including 'the day of check in'...."Help Mary Ann! My GPS isn't finding Harbor Island!" (and yes...of course I received directions via email...and yes, of course I left them at home!) She was wonderful and very patient. You will love this place. :)
Thank you!!! We hope to hear from you again!
Nice views / Clean condo
The property was very clean, furnished nicely and nicely decorated. The owner takes good care of this unit.
Thank you! Come back to see us. Returning clients get a 5% discount on their room rate.
Good place to vacation
We had a great time at Harbor Island. This was the first time we went on vacation without our kids, although they texted and called everyday. The condo we stayed in was so nice and really made you feel at home. It was nice to wake up in the morning and sit out on the patio and see the ocean. I recommend this place to anyone looking for beachfront property for vacation.
Thank you! Come again! We offer a 5% discount on the room rate for returning clients.
