Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, close to pool and beach. Very clean. Exactly as advertised. Owner provided excellent and timely customer service. I would recommend to family and friends. Best local restaurant was the Foolish Frog on St. Helena island.

Beautiful, well-stocked home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautifully decorated with lots of colorful rugs, quilts, books and magazines. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook some great local seafood, and there were plenty of linens. Enjoyed listening to the birds and watching the ocean from both balconies. Harbor Island is a wonderful location for peaceful vacationing in a gorgeous natural setting.
