About Jane Hincher

Jane and Clyde live on nearby Lady's Island, SC and love spending time on the local waterways and beaches.

Why Jane Hincher chose Saint Helena Island

The location of this property sold us! It is truly steps from the pool and the short walkway to the beach. The views from the house are breathtaking all year long.

Love, love, love!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation served two purposes - to be as close to Parris Island for our Marine's graduation (our main purpose) and to enjoy a quick vacation with our family (the secondary bonus!). Not only was the location perfect for our needs, but the house was well cared for and the hosts were very accommodating. The cost was comparable to others in the area but this was closer to the beach and playground. Since we were off season, we practically had the area and the beach to ourselves. This whole experience could have been stressful, but was quite stressless! The area is close enough to stores yet far enough away from it to feel like there is peace and quiet around you.

Gorgeous home with the BEST location!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay from Aug 5 - Aug 12, 2017. We had such an amazing time! We travel from Pennsylvania and this was our first time not staying at Pelican Point. We could not have been happier. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The A/C was fantastic and kept us cool the entire week. We brought our 2 sons and 2 of their friends. The house has plenty of space for all. The beds were extremely comfortable. This home is a gem that is meticulously cared for and the location cannot be beat. The board walk to the beach is 20 feet outside the door and so is the pool. It was great to have the quiet pool, which never had more than a few people using it, so close to the house especially during low tide and in the evening to cool off. We will definitely try to book this home again.

Clean and great beach for toddlers.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property and for younger family. The beach is great for toddlers because of its posion on the inlet or point it's not extremely deep and the waves are usually low which is great for toddlers

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Harbor many times and, again, great stay! Jane and her husband are great to work with and very accommodating. If we had any questions about anything, she answered right away. Clean home and great location. All we really missed was a good cart as the husbands like to drive around from time to time. Thanks Jane!
