Overview

Beaufort area Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2½ Bathrooms (Sleeps 4) Non-Smoking

Flip flops, sand between your toes and sun in your eyes. Just like 'The Good Ole Days': quiet, no crowds and no traffic. Leave your worries behind, take off that tie, work boots, or high heels and turn off that cell phone too. You won't need them here. But, if you must get online there is free WiFi. Our condo is perfect for relaxing and well equipped. So kick back, put your feet up and relax. Have a glass of wine, a cold beer or some sweet tea on our beach front deck and enjoy the panoramic ocean view. Go to bed at night with the windows open and hear the waves splashing on the beach, then wake up to the most beautiful sunrises anywhere then go for an early beach walk with your coffee and look for turtle tracks. What a way to start the morning!

There's lots to do. Fishing, shrimping, crabbing, shelling and swimming at one of the pools at either end of the building or the Olympic size pool and a children's pool at the Beach and Racquet Club just a couple minutes walk away. The four pools are open April 1 through October 31. The Beach and Racquet club also has a gym you can use, a playground for kids and bikes for rent. Don't forget to bring the beach towels and toys!

There's nature galore; nesting birds, gators (don't feed them!) ghost crabs at dusk, seagulls flying low just waiting for some bread crumbs and even a pair of Osprey's nesting near the crabbing dock. For even more nature visit Hunting Island State Park, it's just across the river.

There's so much to do and so little time. So make the best of every minute and enjoy!

Our condo has a well equipped contemporary kitchen with a breakfast bar. During the renovation the first floor was changed to an open floor plan. There is a dinning area, family room area and powder room downstairs too. The second floor has two bedrooms each with its own full bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed, huge eight foot wide window overlooking the ocean and a shower that has two shower heads, one of which is a rainfall shower head. The second bedroom has two twin size beds and a combined bathtub and shower. There are flat screen TVs and BluRay players in the family room and each bedroom. Free WiFi just for our guests. Free calling to the 50 states, which is important because cell phone coverage is spotty. There is a washer and dryer in the condo too.

Our condo is strictly non-smoking. We respectfully request that if anyone in your group smokes that you do not rent our condo. Maximum occupancy including all children and infants is four, groups larger than four are not accepted. This is not a commercial property but is our personal condo and we stay there frequently.

About Pete

We live in Ohio. The property manager for our condo, Harbor Island Rentals, is just a block down the road from the gate to Harbor Island to make sure your stay is just as wonderful as if we lived in Beaufort. Pete & Elena

Pete purchased this condo in 2012

Why Pete chose Beaufort area

Oceanfront on a stunning 2+ mile long beach in a private gated community with on-site 24/7 security. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life but not far from many places to go, things to see and do and excellent restaurants.

Harbor Island Unit K-208

  • 5 of 5

Unit K-208 is well appointed and even more beautiful in person than the photos can show. The home is wonderfully decorated and well equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a visit to Harbor Island. The owners easily make you feel welcomed and at home.

I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone who wishes to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets of Harbor Island SC

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed in a condo before and weren't sure what to expect. This condo was fantastic - it was completely renovated/modern and had every amenity. It has a great ocean view and had a perfect location for a family with two young kids: right between the beach and the swimming pool.

The pictures are spot on - it is truly as nice as it looks. Plus the kitchen is fully stocked with utensils.

Charming & Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a sanctuary for our family. The condo was well decorated & situated that it made us feel as if we were in a beach house, not a condo. The sunrise view from the master bedroom upstairs is fantastic & you have the same view from the living area. The photos you see will capture you as your are browsing the internet and seeing it in person is all the better. We had many homemade meals inside the condo and found that all supplies needed for preparations were available - a home away from home. We were there in April of 2015 and had a blast. It was a concern of mine that going in April would limit our fun, but it didn't. We drove to Beaufort for dining, coffee, art, and a few tours. It was a highlight for my 5-year-old to get up every morning and see what the ocean had swept up on the shore. Another highlight, as you are walking toward the playground and are on the road, you will find a bridge-like, wooden fence; just peer over the top and you will find alligators sunning on the embankment. YIKES! It was cool. Pete and Elena welcomed us with a lovely gift basket and a bottle of wine. It was a great start to our vacation. My little one still talks about our stay in the "beach house" and ask when we are going back. This beach getaway is charming and will definitely enhance your family memories. Enjoy!

Ultimate beach escape

  • 5 of 5

This rental is the ultimate and elegant beach escape. The décor is straight out of Architectural Digest. If you seek the perfect beach experience, this will provide it. Most condos of this quality of beauty and comfort are private homes. Any stay here will be the most memorable part of a trip.

The view of the Atlantic from both the living room and upstairs bedroom is across the private Harbor Island Beach straight into the horizon. From the Condo, you will witness the sunrise each morning as the colors play against the sky. As all beach lovers know, each is distinct. The view of the night sky is equally as vast and magical with the moon reflecting on the water. And all you have to do is look!

The condo walls are painted a rich, soft blue and accented with original colorful art painted by the owner. European style sliding wall units in both bedrooms provide room for your belonging for as long as you can stay. The beds are comfortable. The overhead waterfall in the master shower is pure fun. The tile flooring mimics a weathered beach walk, and its angular design creates visual pleasure no matter where your sight falls. The kitchen has all new appliances, beautiful white and sparkly. We even received a wonderful gift basket with lots of taste sensations upon arrival.

Each inch of this home is measured perfection in style, color and form. The thought, talent and time that created this much visual beauty is reflective of a professional decorator. But it was created by the owners, and that is why it is perfect.

My husband and I have been renting on the Atlantic Coast for 25 years. We have never found a rental of this quality, comfort and beauty. A wonderful experience we are looking forward to having again and again!

Beautiful condo with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed in September. We have stayed on Harbor Island several times before, but this was the first time we stayed in a condo. We were not sure what to expect, but were extremely satisfied with the accommodations. The condo is as beautiful as the pictures. The view from the living room is just gorgeous! We had all of the comforts of home! Thank you, Pete and Elena, for the lovely gift bag and bottle of wine.

Harbor Island is a special place. It is NOT a place to find crowds, noise or traffic. It IS the place for a wonderfully quiet beach vacation. In a glorious natural setting, our island is perhaps the best kept secret on the East coast. This is a private, gated community with 24 hour security and a friendly place where people say hello and wave at you from their cars. The beautiful beach is never crowded.
