activities and attractions in Harbor Island South Carolina

A short twenty minute drive from Harbor Island, the city of Beaufort awaits you with an abundance of history, art, culture, and, natural beauty.  It is the second oldest city in South Carolina, with more homes on the National Historic Register than any town its size.  Carriage and walking tours are available within the downtown area providing you with the background history of the "Spanish moss" neighborhoods where homes date back to the 1700s.  The downtown area provides you with a shopping district where antique stores, galleries, and boutique shops abound along with casual eateries, cozy bistros, and, world class restaurants.

Harbor Island has the advantage of being right around the corner from Hunting Island State Park.  It has the distinction of having the only lighthouse in the state of South Carolina where you can actually walk to the very top to look out for miles and miles in all directions - talk about your Ultimate View!

For those interested in checking out Charleston, Savannah, and, Hilton Head, all three make for an easy day trip from Harbor Island.

If hitting the links is in your plans, take comfort in knowing that courses are right down the road.  Are you a boat enthusiast, park it at THE ULTIMATE VIEW before you take it out to several "put in" spots close to Harbor Island.  These same areas are also perfect for bringing out your rod and reel and casting net to try your luck!  If crabbing suits your fancy, throw your supplies in the golf cart and head out to the deck on Harbor Island made just for that purpose.  Once there, tie off your cage and head to the beach where you will see shrimp boats out in the water with "nets extended" looking to put food on the table later in the day at many local restaurants.  While at the beach, why not try your hand at surf cast fishing.  Once you have reeled in the big one, put it on ice and stroll the beach with bucket in hand picking up sea shells.  Back in the golf cart, you can drop by the Beach and Racquet Club for some ice cream.  With cone in hand, you may decide to tour the complete island in the cart and enjoy the vast expanse of marsh views where you will see many, if not all, birds that are readily identified with the South Carolina Low Country.

In more of a lazy mood, simply stay at the house, pour a cold drink, go to the back porch, and enjoy the best views from any house on Harbor Island - from THE ULTIMATE VIEW!

traveler reviews for this harbor island house rental

Another fabulous family adventure

Review submitted: July 24, 2014   Date of arrival: June 21, 2014

This was our second stay at "The Ultimate View" and was even better than the first, if that's possible. The panorama from both decks is unbelievable: fantastic slow motion sunrises; a variety of water fowl feeding in the marsh, including a whooping crane; pelicans swooping across at rooftop level; the surf kicking up around Hunting Island; and impressive thunderstorms over the water. We enjoy the comfortable deck furniture and the addition of the upstairs washer/dryer. The kitchen is well-equipped and conducive to socializing during meal preparation. The second floor large-screen TV provides a great format for watching the World Cup soccer matches and an occasional movie. We all love our golf cart rides to the beach and pool; the older kids rented bikes to facilitate their travels. In summary, this property offers everything you need for an enjoyable vacation.

Perfect family beach house!!

Review submitted: April 23, 2013   Date of arrival: April 6, 2013

We truly enjoyed our stay at "the Ultimate View". We had two families with a total of six children all under the age of 12. This floor plan was obviously designed to comfortably accommodate two families. Having two master bedrooms and bathrooms was great and having two sets of washer dryers was pure genius!! The house was furnished beautifully and no amenity was overlooked. The owners have absolutely thought of everything. It was the perfect beach house with the perfect view!! Our kids loved the loft, the golf cart rides, and having tons of room to play. The adults loved the two balconies, the home away from home feel and of course the amazing views!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

The Total Package

Review submitted: August 6, 2012   Date of arrival: July 14, 2012

"The Ultimate View" was incredible and offered the "Total Package" when it comes to vacations. We were two families with a total of 6 children. Everyone had plenty of space. The two masters were identical and incredible so both couples were delighted. We loved the two living areas, which gave the children their own space. The wet bar, fridge and microwave upstairs was an added bonus. The stretch golf cart made going to the beach or pool a breeze. Hunting Island, just a short drive away was a great beach with very few people. It even had daily nature programs for children.
The home was clean and well-maintained. The property manager was extremely helpful and very accessible.
