Wonderful Harbor Vacation Home
From the first communication with Robert I knew we were going to love our stay. He was incredible to work with and amazingly fast with responses!
The vacation home was very clean and beautifully decorated. Even after reading so many great reviews, I was surprised by the size of this home. So much room to spread out! The golf cart was just what we needed to get back and forth to the beach and pool. The kitchen was very well stocked. All appliances worked perfectly.
We can’t wait to visit again!
Great Family Vacation
We loved our week at this amazing beach house. It was such a nice home and it was a very short and fun golf cart ride to the beach. We saw many, many dolphins, some really close to the shore, so close you could hear their blow holes. The pool was wonderful and we spent our days split between the beach and pool. All communication about the rental was responded to in a very timely manner. The house was well stocked with most everything you need to cook with in the kitchen which was a good plus. We took 2 different day trips to Hunting Island State Park where we climbed the light house and enjoyed the nice beach there. The nature talks they give for free at the community center at Harbor Island were fun for the whole family. Both my kids held 2 types of snakes!! The only reason I gave the house a 4/5 on location was because the mosquitos were pretty terrible everytime we went out the door. It was a dash to the golf cart and full speed ahead getting away from them. I think it was mostly due to the home being near the marshy areas. Overall a fantastic trip. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Great house and host
Everything was great. The house was spacious, clean, and comfortable for our family. Communication with Robert before and during our stay was timely and very thorough. The beach was a short golf cart/car ride away. We also really enjoyed going to the beach at nearby Hunting Island and walking in downtown Beaufort. We would highly recommend this house.
Great vacation on Harbor Island
The house was very nice and the property manager (Robert) was very easy to work with and professional!
The photos do not do the house justice! The house is beautiful and very clean. We did not have any issues with check in and really enjoyed our visit this year!
First off, Robert is amazing and beyond helpful! The house was awesome, very clean, spacious, and had cozy beds. Great location, golf cart ride to the beach was so fun, met a bunch of folks just riding around the island. Highly recommend the house and using Robert for any of your rental needs! Stayed mid May and the weather was perfect!
While the setting on Harbor Island (approximately 1700 acres) provides a relaxing atmosphere, the active minded can readily take advantage of the Island's Beach & Raquet Club - It offers tennis courts, large swimming pool, wading pool for infants, playground, sand volley ball court, food/gift shop area, and, exercise facility! Of course, you have complete access to the beach area on Harbor Island! All of this is just a short drive from the house in either the golf cart or your personal car and comes free with your rent at no additional charge!
While you can spend many hours "just riding around in the golf cart" provided, you may want to try your hand at crabbing in the area of the Island designated for that. You can even leave your trap while you go out to the beach and "surf cast" for the big catch! Of course, there is much enjoyment in just walking on the beach looking out at the shrimp boats with "nets extended" and seeing the groups of dolphins "playing in the water" off in the distance!
When you are ready to venture off Harbor Island, there are convenient locations nearby for "putting-in" your personal boat or "hearing the spin" of your line as you drop a fishing line with your favorite lure attached! There is even a location nearby for pier fishing.
Do you feel like visiting the only light house in South Carolina where you are allowed to actually walk to the top and look out for miles and miles? Well, you are in luck as the 5,000 acre Hunting Island State Park is right beside Harbor Island.
Nearby "Ladys Island" has two grocery stores supplying everything you will need for "roughing it" back at the beach house!
The downtown area 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 providing the background history of the "Spanish mossed" neighborhoods where homes date back to the 1700s. This beautiful downtown area also provides you with a shopping district where antique, boutique, and, art gallery shops abound along with casual eateries and fine restaurants!
For those looking to add a perfect day trip to their schedule, the historic cities of Savannah, Ga and Charleston, SC are both short drives from downtown Beaufort!
Now, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make your reservation at the "Sea Island Cotton" - let the fun begin!!
