Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several homes on Harbor Island and this is by far the best one! The view is amazing! Fully stocked kitchen! the golf cart was great for trips to the beach and pool. This is a great rental if you are bringing guests! We brought my mother-in-law and it was almost like having our own living space upstairs! The kids loved the loft area as a hang out. The bugs are horrific at night, but we have no complaints about the home and will defiantly return! The only thing I might add is a curtain on the doors going outside in the master bedroom upstairs at least. The sun rises bright and early and shines right through in your face ( although it was a slight bonus that it woke us up in time to go to the beach in time for a sea turtle nest inventory!) We got to see five sea turtles on our trip! The pictures do not do this home justice!

The house and neighborhood were very nice. The pool was good and not extremely crowded. The house was neat and tidy upon arrival and provided all we needed to make our stay a success.

great house with great views of marsh and ocean

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Harbor Island and both the house and island were what we were looking for. The house was very nice and roomy to hold our 7 adults and 3 kids. The beach was amazingly not crowded at all and the water was very calm which was perfect for letting small children play in. The golf cart was a nice perk to shuttle everyone to and from the beach. The property manager was also very responsive and great to work with.

If you want an incredible view, this is the house.

  • 5 of 5

This house was the happiest surprise of a long, hot summer. The view of the sea framed by spring green marsh--unforgettable. You could sit on the porches of this house all day long. Plenty of space for a family gathering, well-appointed. Our children loved riding the golf cart to the beach! Best beach family experience we've had.

Wonderful Stay for Our Large Family Group

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and well maintained. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect for our family of 11. The common areas were roomy enough for late-night card tournaments and the boys loved exploring the property around the marshes.

Just a few words to the wise. The bedrooms facing east in the house are light and airy and have spectacular views of the marsh, ocean and Hunting Island. However, you should be an early riser because the early morning sunshine is right in your face! Perhaps it is a Low County wake-up call? Also, we all enjoyed the porches for their views as well. Be aware of the mosquitoes. Make sure you bring repellant or buy some from the convenience store just minutes from the entrance of Harbor Island.

The facilities on the Island are well kept and we particularly enjoyed watching the alligators in the marshes and cooling off in the evenings at the pool. The proximity to Hunting Island is always a bonus. That beach is so beautiful and great for the family.

All in all, it was an awesome place to stay!

The picture does not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Ultimate View for our sons graduation from Parris Island. First let me say the picture presented for the property does it absolutely NO justice. The house is beautiful!! IT was perfect for accommodating our large family and extended family. We had parents step parents grandparents brothers sisters aunts and nephews all in one location and we were all comfortable. The house had 2 master suites and the other bedrooms were nice large rooms, there was a set of washer/ dryer on each floor double balconies plenty of parking and a beautiful loft space that my marine chose to stay in when we bought him to the property. I can just go on and on but before I end here let me say Mr Gossett was AWESOME!! he is the property manager who kept me informed thru the entire rental process. He was so hands on throughout the entire visit and prior to arrival. The house was not what we expected it was MORE. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with me and my family,

Map

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!
