Unlike any beach vacation I’ve had before
Harbor Island is totally different than any other beach I’ve ever visited. There is so much nature! We saw sea turtles, dolphins, hundreds of horseshoe crabs, alligators, conch shells, sting rays ... so many things. It was an excellent place to visit with three little boys ages 8, 6 and 2. We visited nearby Hunting Beach, took a boat tour in Beaufort, and took advantage of the two pools steps away from the unit we rented. The beach was very calm with virtually no waves, but that was just fine for us. We got to join the sea island turtle patrol and see a turtle nest rehomed one morning and that was very cool! As for the unit itself, it was very nice and well stocked for our family. The two bedrooms were ample for us and we loved the convenience of pool and ocean. It was awesome to wake up and see the beach every morning. It felt very safe and the updated condo was wonderful. Our family has very severe food allergies so i knocked the cleanliness rating down a star because I found a lot of food debris in the cabinets, utensil jar and silverware drawers so I spent or first night rewashing everything and lining the cabinets with paper towels. Our situation is a little different than some because of the allergies so most would find it sufficiently clean I think. The bathrooms were very clean and I felt very comfortable giving tub baths to our children. I really enjoyed the management company, Natural Retreats, and found them great to work with. The only major complaint I had with the unit was the comfort of the beds. The master bed felt much like a very firm crib mattress! I could not get comfortable there and found myself alternating with the couch and then floor to try to get some sleep. My husband also found it uncomfortable. This, of course, is a matter of preference — however, if this was upgraded we would likely consider making this a regular vacation spot.
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. We are beyond thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us at Serenity Now. Harbor Island is indeed spectacular, especially (as you mentioned) for children. There is simply so much to discover! It sounds like you and your family were able to enjoy the condo, as well as all the local attractions, etc. We do apologize for the food debris you encountered in areas of the kitchen. We have relayed your comments to our housekeeping team, so that they can perform a thorough cleaning in the cabinets and drawers. We will also let the homeowner know about the mattresses, and the possibility for upgrades. We look forward to helping you plan your next Harbor Island adventure again soon!
Best 2 BR condo on Harbor island
We have been to Harbor Island several times and love the relaxed atmosphere and the natural marsh experience. Every low tide walk brought something new- skates/rays, horseshoe crabs, dolphins following shrimp boats. This condo is in best located building and was pretty and comfortably furnished. Watched the sun rise from the room each morning. Beautiful views
We are delighted that you had a wonderful stay at Serenity Now. We agree, the condo is ideally situated and the sunrises are spectacular! We look forward to having you back again soon.
Great area for relaxing and slowing down. Wonderful view from porch. Owner has done a decent job of trying to update interior...still an older structure with some quirks (including some bugs inside). The unit is old but they’ve done a good job of updating the decor to make it feel updated.
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed charming Serenity Now and that you were able to relax and unwind while staying there. The views form the porch are lovely! We look forward to having you back again soon.
