Why Jane Hincher chose Beaufort area

The location of this property sold us! It is truly steps from the pool and the short walkway to the beach. The views from the house are breathtaking all year long.

What makes this house unique

12 Shipwatch is such a great location and central to all the Harbor Island amenities. You can walk everywhere! You never have to move your car.

Beautiful, well-stocked home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautifully decorated with lots of colorful rugs, quilts, books and magazines. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook some great local seafood, and there were plenty of linens. Enjoyed listening to the birds and watching the ocean from both balconies. Harbor Island is a wonderful location for peaceful vacationing in a gorgeous natural setting.

This lovely beach house had everything we needed for a great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The decor was perfect, the furniture was comfy, and the house was very clean and well maintained. We loved the pool on the way to the beach. All in all, it was a wonderful spot for my family's beach vacation.

Once again we had a great relaxing time. We love this house. It has everything we need for an enjoyable vacation. We could not ask for better owners to work with. They are exceptionally nice.

Thanks Clyde and Jane

Beautiful home and great location

  • 4 of 5

The home is gorgeous. The bunk beds on the bottom floor are comfortable for children and adults alike. The open feel to the kitchen is great. They had plenty of dishes and utensils. The coffee pot is small but it does not need coffee filters and they have a Keurig. They even have a griddle and blender. Their ice cream scoop and pizza cutter were missing. They had plenty of towels in the laundry room. That room was a great place to store your beach bag or extras you did not want sitting in the living room.

The second floor offers another deck overlooking the beach, a bathroom and two large bedrooms with queens in each. Unfortunately, the bed we slept in has a frame that squeaks every time you move, making a good nights sleep difficult. (It appeared that the frame had been broken at some point and the repair job was what was making the noise.)

The third floor has a small room with two bunk beds. This was perfect for the two eleven year olds who wanted to be alone. It is a bit warm up there but they had a box fan and another fan to help with that. I'm not sure adults would want to use that bedroom.

The house itself is 20 steps from the beach access and one house from the pool. That was great. The first night we got there we headed to the beach and got to see a nest of baby turtles hatch and head to the sea! AMAZING! The beach flashlights must be red ( March - October ) so be prepared when you go. We just bought a red ballon and put it over ours. The beach was teaming with animals like horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs and blue crabs. We loved it.

Harbor Island is a gated community with a live security guard at the entrance 24 hours a day offering the ultimate feeling of comfort. No need to worry about your kids if they bike around the community. Lots of folks had golf carts but we were so close to the walkway we did not need it. Bring your bug spray. You will need it. The second pool was bigger and we spent a day there as well.

This was a great house in a great location. I would have given it five stars if my bed had not squeaked so badly.

The house was clean and comfortable. Great location, a short walk to all the islands amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Jane was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive to our questions and requests. The home was updated and clean. Both pools, the beach and the community center were right outside the door. My son loves the nature talks given by the Hunting Island Rangers. The houses on Harbor Island can be pretty hit and miss. This was a hit. I would certainly look to rent this house next year.
