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

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our pet-friendly, ocean view villa is located on the 2nd floor with easy access to the elevator (9-steps to the elevator). It is adjacent to the pool, so you can watch your children play from the screened-in porch (see pictures).

The master bedroom features a queen-size heavenly bed with pillow top and luxurious sheets. The living room sofa converts to a full/double-size bed. All bed linens and towels are provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, microwave, toaster, oven, etc. for the chef in your family. Please see additional amenities below.

The unit is situated in Beachhouse Villas, a private, gated community with 24-hour security. A two-minute walk from our unit takes you to the 3-mile private beach (which is never crowded) or to the fitness center in the lower level of the Beach Cabana Club. The club property features a large pool with four tennis courts. A putting green is nearby.

Come share our villa for a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Shift into a lower gear, bring your binoculars if you're a birdwatcher, relax and enjoy!

***Harbor Island***

Harbor Island, 14 miles east of highly acclaimed Beaufort, SC., is a protected estuary habitat filled with wildlife and beautiful plant life. It is part of the 350,000-acre ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve (ACE Basin NERR), created and managed by the Marine Resources Division of South Carolina. The private island sits on the edge of the biologically rich Saint Helena's Sound. In this habitat, you will be surrounded by live oaks, slash pines, and cabbage palmettos.

The ACE Basin Refuge lies along the Atlantic Flyway - the 'bird highway in the sky.' Numerous waterfowl, shore birds, neo-tropical songbirds and birds of prey migrate from their nesting grounds to wintering areas throughout eastern North America.

The painted bunting, egrets and herons are in abundance here. Many endangered species such as the peregrine falcon, Canby's dropwort, chaffseed, hawksbill turtle, leatherback turtle, red-cockaded woodpecker, shortnose sturgeon, West Indian manatee, and wood stork live in the ACE Basin. Six, federally-threatened species (i.e. bald eagle, Eastern indigo snake, green turtle, American alligator, loggerhead turtle, and piping plover) have also been observed in the area.

Ocean Wildlife - The ocean is teeming with wildlife - American oysters, blue crabs, fiddler crabs, grass shrimps, hard clams, white shrimps, living sand dollars, horseshoe crabs, and porpoise, according to the National Estuarine Research Reserve.

At certain times of the year, you will share the ocean water with glowing green phosphorescent plankton or loggerhead sea turtles. (Don't forget to Help Save Our Turtles - lights off on the beach at night between May 1 and September 1). A sighting of a leatherback turtle, the largest living turtle species, occurred last year on Hunting Island, the next island over.

Fishing - If you are interested in fishing - the 1120-foot, former Paradise Pier is now part of Hunting Island State Park, the last island boundary in the ACE Basin chain. Fishermen have tried their luck and caught Atlantic croaker, bay anchovy, black drum, largemouth bass, red drum, shortnose sturgeon, Southern flounder, spot, spotted sea trout, striped bass, and striped mullet.

***Nearby Hunting Island***

Local Attractions Hunting Island is home to the historic Hunting Island lighthouse that was in operation until 1933. Originally constructed in 1859 and rebuilt in 1875 after the Civil War, 167 steps and 50 cents will take you to the top for a fabulous view. It is only two miles away from our unit.

***Beaufort***

Time to go out on the town? Beaufort provides a delightful backdrop. First inhabited by native Americans and then the Spanish in the 1500s, historical areas are every where. Antebellum homes from before the Civil War border the waterfront as do great restaurants and a small park and marina. Beaufort also hosts a thriving artists community and it is only 14 miles away! An hour or so drive will take you to Savannah or Charleston, beautiful southern cities that make great day trips.

Stop at Publix on your way out of Beaufort. It is on the left after you cross Lady's Island bridge over the intercoastal waterway once you go through downtown Beaufort on Route 21. Or, stop at Gay's Seafood (on the right) before you cross the Harbor River Bridge across from the famous (featured in Coastal Living) Shrimp Shack.

About The Owner

Several years ago when I purchased the condo on Harbor Island, I made the decision to make it pet-friendly. We provide dog/cat beds, food bowls, and encourage guests to leave pictures behind on our 'pet board'. Some of my friends and business advisors said I was crazy to allow pets because they would ruin the unit. Well, the exact opposite has happened. People that can't imagine going away without their pets and have chosen L206 have been the most pleasant guests I've ever experienced. The cute pictures left behind and the notes about how much their 4-legged friends enjoyed the beach are priceless. Thanks for visiting!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Beaufort area

Harbor Island is one of the last places on earth where you can roam the beach and not encounter any others - well, maybe several starfish, great shore birds, and dolphins swimming along with you as you're walking. I also love the fact that Harbor Island is a reserve for sea turtles and other endangered species.

What makes this condo unique

L-206 has one of the best ocean views of any condo on Harbor Island. Located a few steps away from the elevator, there's no need to lug heavy bags up and down the steps. If you cook, you'll appreciate the new kitchen appliances and high end pots and pans. The pillow top mattress on the queen size bed is incredibly comfortable and the towels are big and fluffy. Finally, we provide a free annual pass for Hunting Island, saving you the daily entry fee. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the manager

February is a wonderful time to stay on Harbor Island. We, and this includes the Dougy the dog, enjoyed walking the beaches daily. Hunting Island State Park is a fascinating place with lots of hikes.

The condo was perfect for the 3 of us. If there is a negative comment it would be the closets were filled and the kitchen facuet needs updating.

We certainly recommend a stay here.

Very nice little condo, we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very cleaned and updated. It was perfect for my husband and I. My daughter stopped by for two nights and the pull out sofa was perfect. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed the wildlife that went along with it. Will definitely come again.

very nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and myself were looking for a quiet getaway for just a couple of days. We have two older small dogs so a pet friendly villa was what we needed. Everything from start to finish worked as advertised. The villa was clean, good shape and fully furnished with everything we needed. The pups really enjoyed the screened porch as did we. Easy drive to Beaufort, had fine dining experience at Saltus. Well worth it.

Wonderful, relaxing trip!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described, clean and well-maintained. My sister, my dog and I had a fantastic girl's vacation! We love Hunting Island and this condo is a perfect location to drive over and enjoy the park. We never left the island except to drive over to Hunting Island. Good eating nearby at the Shrimp Shack and Johnson Creek Tavern. We had lots of rain the first day but that was fine too because we sat on our screened-in porch and enjoyed the relaxing sound of rainfall. The ocean is a little farther away than what we are used to but we knew that when we booked. The elevator really came in handy too! Everyone we talked to was so nice and friendly. Wish I was still there! :-)

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal base for a laid-back beach experience. The accommodations are well managed and all the details of reservations, check-in, check-out were so easy. The condo is well maintained, very clean, and comfortable. Super close to beach and pool with a great view. Harbor Island is a good choice for long beach walks, birding, marsh adventures, and beautiful low-country drives. It isn't overdeveloped, which makes it a great place to unwind and recharge.
