About John Berggren

Our family vacationed on Harbor in 2005 and left as homeowners. Currently, we aren't able to visit as often as we like and decided to open our home for others to enjoy.

John Berggren purchased this cottage in 2005

Why John Berggren chose Saint Helena Island

Harbor Island is a peaceful respite for families to spend time together enjoying the outdoors. It's reminiscent of times past.

What makes this cottage unique

When looking at homes to purchase, we fell in love with the spectacular views from the porches of 71 Harbor Drive and never tire of the incredible beauty of the marsh and the low country.

Wonderful and perfect! Proud USMC Family!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our son’s USMC graduation from boot camp, and after stressing out about individual family hotel rooms/coordinating transportation, we booked this amazing house a few weeks before graduation... and I will forever be grateful that we did! The home was perfect for our four families (1 set proud parents and even prouder little sister, 2 sets proud grandparents and 1 set proud aunt/uncle), but our favorite moment was seeing our new Marine’s face when we brought him “home.” The layout of the home is wonderful, beautiful outdoor seating with the kitchen on the first level. It was wonderful to be able to cook and talk and laugh! The rooms are so comfortable and we loved having 4 bathrooms!

The community is beautiful and very convenient to local grocery stores and Walmart. Our family beach photos are breathtaking!

USMC Families - for starters, John is wonderful and was our first impression of the amazing support a military family can receive. Second, the drive to Parris Island is an easy one... 25/30 minutes of fun scenery and places to explore. Third, you will want to take your Marine home to this house... the people will recognize and lift up your Marine in a wonderful way! We had neighbors come say hello to our boy, cars stopped to say hello and anywhere we stopped the local area people said hello. Our Marine stood even taller and our family felt a new level of LOVE.

Thank you again, John! Thank you for sharing your home and for your easy responses to anything we needed. Best wishes to you! We hope to return soon!

Had a great time fishing behind the house. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking large family dinners.

Great View! This home has everything. Owner and property manager very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The minute we stepped inside we felt relaxed. With all of the windows and the view and the super clean interior and peaceful decor we knew we had chosen well. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom was perfect for my 91 year old Mother. There were games for my teenagers and they enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs twin bedrooms. Our master bedroom and bathroom was incredibly comfortable and had an amazing view as well, even from the large tub. The sunrise from the front side of the house took my breath away. The golf cart got us around to look at the community and all the neighbors were welcoming and friendly. My boys enjoyed the tennis courts and basketball court. The kitchen was large and had everything we needed for cooking. Our dinner out was at The Foolish Frog and I would recommend it. We did not catch any fish but we did catch a few crabs in the trap that was provided. We spent a half day in Beaufort enjoying the shops and looking at the beautiful homes. We also spent some time on Hunting Island and climbed the lighthouse. We would love to come back during the Summer or Spring to enjoy the house and the area in warm weather. Kayaking would have been fun but it was just too cold during our stay. This home was perfect for our family gathering during the holiday.

Amazing views and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our extended family thanksgiving gathering. The house and kitchen were well equipped, the property manager was helpful. We enjoyed family time both at the house and exploring harbor island on bikes and the golf cart.

Nearest Beach
Harbor Island
Car: necessary

Harbor Island is a gated community with no commercial development built around the vast marshes and three and a half miles of a beautiful constantly changing beach. The Beach and Racquet Club has an adult pool, baby pool (18' deep), playground, small exercise room, beach volleyball court, tennis, and basketball courts. There are

views of the ocean and St. Helena Sound across the marsh from both decks, kitchen and master bedroom. Our home has an open plan living/dining room and kitchen, decks and rocking chairs on two floors, open, airy and bright! The house is a short walk or bike ride to the beach and pool. There is a golf cart available to explore the island or drive to the beach or Beach Club.

Harbor Island is about 15 miles outside of Beaufort, SC - a beautiful quiet historic town filled with restaurants and quaint shops. The Chocolate Tree is not to be missed. Savannah is about an hour drive, Charleston is about an hour and 45 minute drive, and Hilton Head Outlets are about 45 minutes away for day trips. However, you won't want to leave the peaceful quiet of Harbor Island.
