Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

My beach home was purchased in 1983, not as an investment, but because I fell in love with Harbor Island. The low country of South Carolina is an ever changing unique ecosystem, and every time I go there I am as delighted as I was the first time that I visited.

The condo has been well cared for by all with whom it has been shared. Some guests have returned each summer for many years; and now they share 'their week' with grandchildren.

ABOUT THE CONDO:

The kitchen has been renovated to include new cupboards,granite counter tops & appliances.

The bathrooms have been completely restructured and tiled. All new fixtures including regular bath tubs, and the sinks are out of the bedrooms.

The living, dining and bedrooms' furniture and decor are continually updated and/or replaced as needed. With my renter's help, I try to keep the condo ready to be enjoyed as I would my home.

New double paned energy star windows. Wow, what a difference in sound and comfort! The outside heat and cold temperatures stay outside. The new front loading clothes washer and dryer are also energy star efficient.

ABOUT THE ISLAND:

Harbor Island has a beautiful beach, sand crabs dancing, loggerhead turtles nesting and hatching, egret and heron rookeries, an occasional alligator or porpoise sighting, watching the tide come in and the shrimp boats go out. Harbor is about angel wing shells and sand dollar searches, about crabbing, fishing, incredible sunrises and sunsets, sea oats and cat tails, fiddler crabs, rare birds, dowagers, sand pipers, pelicans, and the surrounding marsh which serves as a nursery for all of it.

ABOUT THE LOCATION:

Harbor is next door to Hunting Island State Park with its fishing pier, museum and lots of Park Ranger programs. Harbor is a 20 minutes drive from Beaufort, South Carolina with its river front park, nice restaurants and wonderful shops. You might recognize some scenes from the movies that have been shot there. Finally, Harbor is about an hour away from historic Savannah, Georgia to the south and Charleston, South Carolina to the north.

One visit to Harbor, I would venture to predict, will not be enough. You will want to come back again, and again, and again... .

Feel free to call me and/or email me if you would like more information about Cedar Reef Villa C-204 and Harbor Island.

About Wilson Hubbell

Second generation caretaker of our family beach getaway. Originally from Columbia, South Carolina, I now live with my wife, Jess, and my 2-year old son and 6-year old daughter in Nashville, Tennessee.

Wilson Hubbell purchased this condo in 1983

Why Wilson Hubbell chose Beaufort area

My mother purchased this property when it was built in 1983, not as an investment, but because she fell in love with Harbor Island. The low country of South Carolina is an ever changing unique ecosystem, and every time I go there I am as delighted as I was the first time that I visited.

What makes this condo unique

Harbor Island is about sharing some quiet time on a sea island with the natural inhabitants. I recently attended an Audubon sponsored Fall Migration weekend and learned that over 650 heron, egret, ibis, and others reside on the island. Migrating birds from the arctic on their way to the tip of South America stop by at Harbor. The sandbars are nesting grounds for endangered birds. And that is just the bird life . . . . Are you a nature lover? . . . you will love Harbor Island.

We enjoyed our stay at Harbor Island as always. It really is the perfect place for a relaxing family vacation. We are long time visitors to the island and always love it there.

The view from this unit is beautiful and there is beach access right around the corner.

Perfect property, views of marsh and beach, access to beach easy, important birding area by Audubon

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the beauty, peace, quiet and Long Beach. Important birding area (IBA) by Audubon, I learned many shoreline birds. There is also turtle nesting and accessible to Hunting State Park and other areas as Beaufort. People friendly and convivial. Tides came in and out, perfect good restful wadding. There are two pools on site, along with fitness room. We bought our food at Publix on way from Beaufort. This is a great place for comfort, peace and quiet and appreciation of nature. Also if you like salt marshes! We hope to come back soon! Condo clean, well maintained and nicely furnished.

This property was exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about this property! The marsh & ocean views were beautiful & I watched the sunrises from the outside deck every morning--gorgeous!! The furniture and mattress were exceptionally comfortable and there was plenty of storage & closet space for a month-long stay. To get on the beach was just a short walk from the front door and I saw dolphins rolling & playing in the water almost every day! A big plus was the ease & friendliness of dealing with the owners--Jess was always willing to answer any questions I had. I will definitely return to Harbor Island & this property. I enjoyed every day of my stay there & walked the beach or golfed almost daily. Fortunately the weather was unusually warm & accommodating as well.
