Harbor Island offers a peaceful serenity that is hard to find in major resort areas. If you long to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Harbor Island is the perfect place to be. Spend your vacation doing absolutely nothing but relaxing and enjoying the abundant natural beauty of our island or take advantage of the many activities located nearby. We are an easy day trip to Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head, and of course nearby Beaufort is filled with charm, great sightseeing,art, shopping and restaurants.
Harbor Island is a beach lover's paradise with over two and a half miles of quiet, uncrowded Atlantic beach. Osprey, herons, alligators, egrets, shorebirds of all kinds, dolphin and an occasional deer all make their homes here, as well as a variety of other wonderful wildlife. You can fish right off of the beach, or crab in the creeks. Your rental also includes access to the Beach and Racquet Club, with an Olympic sized pool overlooking the Harbor River marshes, a kiddie pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball, fitness center and sundries shop.

The beach wasn't what we are used to (Florida white sand and blue water spoiled us!) but the house was very nice. We especially enjoyed the three decks and the screened-in porch. Dolphins provided entertainment with our morning coffee as they followed shrimp boats headed out to sea.
Most of all, we were impressed by the friendliness and kindness of the property manager, Karl Mack. We had a "mini-emergency" when the family dog vanished. Mr. Mack spent hours on his golf cart helping us look for him and engaged Security to join the search. Even some residents were helping! Fortunately, all ended well and the puppy is safe and sound, happily reunited with his family. If he could write a review, he would certainly mention the "ghost crabs" and his efforts to become BFFs with them, none of which were successful. :)
Stayed here last week of April 2016. Loved it, especially all the decks on three levels. Great view from all rooms and decks. Loved working in the kitchen while looking at the ocean. Saw dolphins daily, even close in. My husband and I don't sit on the beach during the day, but enjoyed it from the decks while watching the others in the family. Looking forward to our next visit! Thank you Donna and Carl Mack for making the rental so easy and sharing information with us.
We stayed at this home in Sept.2014. we went with other couples. Beautiful place with everything you need for a weeks stay. Nice kitchen, washer, dryer, dishwasher. Right on the ocean. Step out and your feet are in the sand. Pool very nice. Saw dolphins all the time!!Hope to be able to go back soon.
My wife and I along with two other couples stayed at this house for a week. It was a fabulous stay. The house was clean with plenty of accessories. WiFi, TV's with cable in each room. Kitchen with utensils,etc. Washer, Dryer. etc. Slept great-comfortable beds. Each morning watched the shrimp boats and dolphins. Great beach for walking and fishing from. Easy access. Very secure. Pool was very nice (walking distance). Multiple golf courses within 30 minutess. Fresh seafood available daily. Multiple restaurants and taverns from 2 to 15 minutes away. Close to Beaufort, 30-40 mins to Hilton Head and 1+45 to Charleston for visiting and sight seeing as well.
Place was very quite and you are able to relax with Ocean breeze. Multiple decks on house to sit or lay out on. Highly recommend for vacation and/or get away. Look forward to going again.
I was privileged to stay in this incredible vacation oasis. My wife and I loved this beautiful home, all of the amenities, and of course the location. We could not imagine a more perfect place to rest and relax. The house is perfectly located on the beach as well as the proximity to restaurants, shopping and golf. We look forward to our next vacation in South Carolina.
We've stayed at several homes on Harbor Island and this one has the most incredible unobstructed views of any on the beach. This home is also the most well maintained of any home where we've stayed. That must be a priority of the owner because keeping property so close to the ocean in good repair takes effort. It was also clean which we appreciated and a thank you to the housekeeping staff and the Mack's who manage this property well. There's no golf cart with this house which would be nice to sight see on the island but we had bikes and strollers are helpful for walks to the pool with little ones. Harbor Island is a peaceful place to enjoy dolphin, bird and sometimes turtle watching, wading or swimming in quiet waters- no surf- perfect for young children and kayaking.
Harbor Island is 14 miles from charming, historic Beaufort SC. We are about an hour drive to Hilton Head with outlet shopping galore, about an hour to scenic Savannah Georgia and about 2 hours to Charleston SC.
