Quiet area of Island. Unobstructed Views. Fish and Crab right outside your door. Beautiful Sunset Views. Personally Maintained between Renters by Owners.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our time on Harbour Key was just a wonderful experience. The weather was wonderful and the people here are so friendly. We came here to celebrate the union of two wonderful people and staying here really put the icing on the cake. The best part about staying here was the wonderful deck, the spacious bedrooms, and the very peaceful area. The decorations and how everything is placed in this house is wonderful. Thanks for the wonderful experience. We would love to come back.

Thank you.

Notes:
Under Elderly or Infirmed the reason I state the house maybe unsuitable is due to the fact all the homes on the island are raised so require stairs to access. There are a few homes that have elevators and the villas (but they also require a few stairs to access).

Great house! Great location! Great service!

  • 5 of 5

First off I want to highlight the extreme helpfulness that Frank was in this whole process. This was our first dealing with Home Away and to be honest I was a bit skeptical. Frank immediately responded to all inquiries and was very helpful in answering all questions.

On to the house!! Very lovely 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage style home. WiFi and cable included. The AC worked great and the house was immaculate.

Plenty of space, plenty of linens and towels.

Nice little tidbits included, K Cups, mini moos, and even full packs of coffee for big brewer.

The golf cart seemed brand-new and made transportation on the island a breeze. The community pool is great and there are several beach access docks and multiple places to fish, crab, or just take in the beauty of the low country.

The location is definitely isolated, so you will want to grocery shop on the way in, although there are several restaurants a 15 to 20 minute drive inland(highly recommended Dockside).

What can I say, we fell in love with Harbor Island and want to come back annually, if this home is available again we will definitely stay here again.

Thanks Frank for helping my family make some wonderful memories!

Beautifully kept and maintained home, high marks

  • 5 of 5

We are often very critical of vacation rentals as we are VR owners and probably look at more details than most.

That said, we were very pleased with the house and extremely pleased with Frank’s attention to us…… and to the details.

We found the place immaculate, and that is a biggie for us and most rental guests I think. Kitchen and baths, as well as linens, towels, pots , pans and dishes, were in excellent condition.

The mattress on the bed was very comfortable, great water pressure, plenty of hot water in the shower, sufficient plates and utensils for cooking , great light coming in all the windows all contributed to a very homey and pleasant stay.

In the couple of instances where we had questions, we were able to reach Frank immediately and get the answers.

Harbor Island is a nice community and we have stayed there before. One of the attractions is the proximity to Hunting Island, where I had hoped to go birding. Unfortunately, Hunting Island was closed due to the hurricane damage that occurred recently, but when it opens, being that close will be a plus for beach and nature walks. No real negatives for this property or its location.

Harbor Island
Car: recommended

Harbor Island is a private gated coastal barrier island community 12 miles South from Historic Beaufort South Carolina. Our pristine secluded beach stretches 3 miles of the Atlantic Ocean Coast Line tall in natural wind swept dunes, sea oats, coastal grasses, and native wildlife. Where you can watch dolphins at play in the surf and shrimp boats passing lazily bye. It is one of the Carolina Sea Islands. The majority of the island is tidal marsh, though approximately 800 acres of upland acreage exist on the northeastern portions of the island. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Harbor River and Johnsons Creek. Intertwined with miles of Saltwater Canals, Creeks and Marsh. A natural habitat for over 1500 varieties of native and migrating birds and plenty of coastal life. The Atlantic Ocean, Harbor River, Streams and Canals offer plenty of Shrimping, Crabbing and Fishing right on the Island There are many activities on the Island with the Harbor Island Beach & Racket Club

Other Activities: Tennis, Volley Ball Court, Basket Ball Court, Kids Play Area, Over Sized Pool, Workout room with Nautilus, free weights, treadmills and more, Shuffle Board

Golf: The area is surrounded with many exceptional golf courses located just a few minutes drive such as the renowned PGA champion Davis Love III's signature Ocean Creek only 10 minutes away as well as the George Cobb designed Ocean Point which offers spectacular oceanfront views along its challenging holes.
