Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Saint Helena Island

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This comfortable and completely tiled cottage-style ground-floor villa is in a private gated community. The condo has been freshly painted and redecorated. Private WIFI computer connection. Harbor offers 2 1/2 miles of private beach and ocean, bay, and marsh views. The furnishings have been chosen for your relaxing vacation time. There is one queen sofabed and one single sofabed in addition to the queen bed. This is an airy end unit with lots of light from extra windows.

Unlike many, our deck leads out the back towards the pool and dune walkway. The pool is ~ 50 paces to the private Cedar Reef Villa pool. Take a short walk to the beach just over and through the beautiful natural dunes. Home of wildflowers; bushes; birds; rabbits; hermit crabs and more. Our rental also gives rights to the 'Harbor Island Beach & Tennis Club'. A short walk to the 'HIBT' Club offers a fitness center of cardio machines and a weight room.

The large outdoor pool surrounded by lounge chairs and looks out over the marsh to the Harbor River. There is a kiddie pool and playground; tennis courts; basketball; shuffleboard; volleyball; horseshoe pit and golf chipping area. The club offers a grill for snacks and a small general store. Two bikes accompany our condo for your pleasure. Ride through the island and observe the wild life, manicured grounds and beautiful pastel colored homes. 'Bubba's Surf Shop' for ice cream, t-shirt, souvenirs and beach supplies.

Buy fish fresh from the shrimp boat at Gay's Marina just before the Harbor Bridge. See schools of dolphins, crab from bridges, watch pelicans dive for fish, and enjoy sunsets framed by Palmetto trees.

Harbor Island is next to beautiful, unspoiled subtropic Hunting Island (see 'LINK' below for all the natural beauty, exploring, swimming etc. HUNTING ISLAND has to offer)and Fripp Island, South Carolina. 12 miles to historic Beaufort, 12 miles to Parris Island, 42 miles to Hilton Head, 69 miles to Charleston, and 57 miles to Savannah. Movies 'Forest Gump,' 'Prince of Tides,' 'Disney's Jungle Book,' and 'The Big Chill' were filmed on neighboring islands or in Beaufort.

Why BRIAN FOX chose Beaufort area

DESCRIPTION:

The condo is very clean and comfortable. The entire floor is tiled! This is great to keep the condo clean! The condo is an end unit with side windows that makes it very bright and spacious feeling. It is first floor with a front door at the parking lot and very convenient back door to pool and beach walk!

The kitchen is well stocked with utensils etc. Shower towels and bed linens are supplied.

There are two private Cedar Reef pools. One pool is approximately 50 paces from the condo (see photos). The other is just on the other side of the condos for closer proximity for those guests.

There is also the larger main pool at the Harbor Island Pool and Racquet Club. There is also a kiddie pool and play ground, tennis, volleyball, basketball and a chipping area for golfing.

Tennis rackets, volleyball and basketballs are available for loan at the Club.

The clubhouse has a snack bar and exercise room, (as if walking on the beach isn't enough exercise). We have two bikes at the condo for your use.

We recently did some painting and updating.

It is situated 15 miles East of Beaufort, SC. It is midway between

Charleston to the north and Savannah to the south. Hilton Head is

mid way between Harbor Island and Savannah. Therefore it is situated

some what between all of them. It is a pretty, secluded island.

PS: The tax, gate pass and cleaning fees are fees we cannot get around. The property is managed and cleaning is contracted. This guarantees that when you arrive, the condo, bath towels, kitchen utensils, are clean. There is a bar of soap in each bathroom, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap ready for your use. Please write or call if you have any questions.

I will check back with you in a few days if I don't hear from you.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Brian was an incredible person to rent from. He kept us up to date with the hurricane situation and was very accommodating. Will definitely look into renting from him again. The condo was very well maintained and close to everything on the island.

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica, Thanks for the nice review. I am sorry your trip was cut short by Hurricane Matthew. It was important that you knew your safety was the utmost concern. It is very sad. Much destruction to so many, personal, property & life. I hope you visit another time. Brian

The whole complex was absolutely stunning, and in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beyond our expectations! It was clean, well decorated, and felt so homey we loved every second! Brian was so helpful, he called while we were booking to check in and answer any questions!

The location was by far the best part; the condo is around a three minute walk from the beach. If we didn't feel like swimming in the ocean there was a gorgeous pool even closer to enjoy! We cannot thank Brian enough!

Quiet and Relaxing

I stayed a week in the condo and enjoyed it. The bed was comfortable and the Wi-Fi was a nice plus. The beach is pristine. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax this is it.

Relaxing!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing week. The condo was clean and there was plenty of room for our family of 4. We spent lazy days on the quiet beach and evenings by the pool. We will be sure to return next year....or sooner!

Brian Fox Harbor Island Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Brian Fox's condo! The location was excellent! Close to one of the three pools, near 3 different beach accesses, and with in walking distance to the Fitness/Big Pool.

Mr. Fox went above and beyond when he called me as we were driving to tell me that one of the beach access points were going to be closed during our stay because of an alligator sighting. We really appreciated the heads up!

Harbor Island was peaceful, beautiful, and just all around what we were hoping for!

Beautiful cottage condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so beautiful! The cottage décor was so pretty. The condo was immaculately clean, all of it. It was a big plus having the extra half-bath. Kitchen was well stocked. We had no problems there so we had no need to call Brian during our stay. Location was great and close to really good restaurants and shops. Close to Beaufort also. Loved the condo and enjoyed our stay there!
