Very nice, comfortable, clean
Very pretty, clean and comfortable. We brought our food but everything else was in the house. The house was in top shape and all of our questions were answered before we arrived. We were visiting because our Grandson was graduating from Marine boot camp at Parris Island. It was an easy drive to the base. Then in the evening we were able to play on the beach. It was gorgeous and we had some awesome sunsets. Definitely, would visit again.
We loved staying at the island and this house. Its just as described. Our 4yr loved the golf cart so taking it to the pool and beach was tons of fun! What struck us most was the quietness of the island. Its very peaceful and laid back...We hope to be back next year!
Get ready to fall in love!
We love to vacation at Harbor Island because it is such a non crowed family oriented beach and this was our second time staying at "Sea Island Cotton". I'm sure it will not be our last because the house is just as beautiful, clean and spacious as it is shown on the VRBO site. There will be no unpleasant surprises if you rent this vacation home. Also another plus, Robert the manager was very easy to work with and would always return our calls or emails in a very timely manner.
The pictures did not do this precious home justice! It was perfect for our family of 5. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked with the utensils and things we needed to cook with. The beach was a short golf cart ride away. We also enjoyed the crabbing dock and pool. We enjoy staying in this section because of all the shade that is around us. A huge shout out to Robert for helping to make this stay as easy as possible! He was very prompt and easy to work with. We enjoy our summers at Harbor and look forward to possibly staying here again!
Great island and home
Awesome place to stay - our daughter loved the golf cart and wildlife. Very spacious house and Harbor Island was very relaxing due to the low volume of people there. Easy drive to Beaufort and Savannah for some great seafood. Robert was extremely detailed and helpful - even as thoughtful to have one of our daughter's blankets that got lost mailed back. Highly reccomend!
This house is a lovely jewel in a quiet community.
Although I read other reviews that said the pictures don't do the house justice, I still wasn't prepared for how well-appointed this house was. Nothing has been overlooked: from the practical --every kitchen utensil we could possibly need -- to the fun -- board games & Beach chairs. The house has a lovely, well maintained decor. The spacious floorplan was ideal for our 3 families. Harbor Island is a perfect family destination and though the house is some distance from the beach & community pool, having use of a golf cart made it a synch to get there (& way more fun than a car). As a practical matter, don't forget mosquito repellent as this is a Marsh community. But because it is, it feels tropical & secluded among the lush foliage. Robert, the property manager, was patient & gracious -- a true Southern gentleman host.
Activity and Interests
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!!
