Better than the billing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online only partly reveal the true beauty of this home. Nicely furnished and decorated it is well positioned on Harbor Island for expansive views of the Atlantic and Lowcountry marsh. Hear the ocean as waves cascade in the distance. Wildlife abounds and peacefulness is assured while sitting on either of the two large decks removed from neighbors view. You will believe that the scenery is yours alone.

Luxury rental home near Parris Island

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a spacious, large rental to accommodate 14 people for our sons graduation from Parris Island boot camp. Not only was the house more than we could have ever ask for, providing 2 kitchens, two laundries, and large bedroom but so was the agent, Robert. He was very generous and went well out of his way to ensure we had a wonderful experience...which we most certainly did. Thank you Robert for being the most perfect and thoughtful host!! The Lewis'

Utilized all the space

  • 5 of 5

This house met our needs and had truly does have a beautiful view. Will recommend to future military recruit families when they have a large group and want to be near the ocean. It was especially nice to have all the full bathrooms since we had such early morning starts. We only got to spend a couple hours on the actual beach but did see about 10 dolphins right out at the bouy line.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house and the views were beautiful! Quiet area with great amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had plenty of room for the 9 of us to relax and sleep comfortably. It was a great location for us while in the area for our son's graduation from Parris Island. Would highly recommend! Robert was fantastic, quick to respond and very helpful, as well!

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!

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!
