About Derrick Hampton

My Wife and I (Derrick and Roxanne) along with my brother and his wife (Travis and Sage) decided to embark on an adventure and build our oceanfront dream house. It was completed in 2014 in the beautiful low country of South Carolina on Harbor Island. We purposefully built our home with guest's creature comforts in mind. We wanted it to feel like you are sitting at home on your comfortable sofa while you're watching the waves crawl upon the shore outside your back porch. We built our home and had a very successful and fun 2 1/2 years and then along came Hurricane a Matthew. Our home was built so well it survived but we needed to rebuild much of it. Also, after the storm we had lost our dunes and needed to find a new lot on the island. We were blessed to be able to move our home to the best lot on the island. Built back to brand new and relocated. We are now at the sparsely populated north end of the island with views to die for. I am truly awestruck every time I walk into our home. Breathtaking vistas is not a strong enough statement to describe the beauty surrounding it. We love to spend as much time as we can there (living in Georgia we are only a short drive away) and we know you will love it too. We try to make sure that when you step into our house, you feel like you are home. We respond quickly to any issue you may have and we live by the motto 'do the right thing all the time.' Welcome to our home , the Hampton's.

Derrick Hampton purchased this house in 2014

Why Derrick Hampton chose Beachwalk

Building this home has been a dream of my family and my brother's family. Completed in 2014, it is built with the strictest of codes, designed to handle mother nature and keep you comfortable. My brother and I have always loved South Carolina. Being from Georgia, we would take trips annually to our neighboring state and enjoy her beauty and hospitality, food and golf. We are so excited to be counted among her community and even more excited to share it with others. We know you will love the 'Low Country' as much as we do. Come stay at our home.... The Hampton House.

What makes this house unique

MILLION DOLLAR VIEWS EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK! No need to fight over who has the best room. Each one offers unique and awe inspiring views of the ocean, sound, river or marsh. Just steps out the back door onto your private boardwalk, brings you to one of South Carolina's most serene and untouched beaches. Dolphins make their morning and evening swim just outside of your porch. Shrimp boats ply their trade every morning just after sunrise. Harbor Island itself is recognized by the Audubon Society with it's teaming birdlife. Logger Head turtles nest on the shores every year. Truly an amazing island. This is why we built here and this is why our house is the perfect place to bring your family for a lifetime of memories. The first time you have your morning coffee on the screened in back porch while watching the dolphins chase the shrimp boats, you will be as hooked as we are. Every room in the house has breathtaking views. The back porches offer the awe inspiring vistas of the sound and the ocean. From the front porch admire the surreal beauty of the low country marsh. The north view gives you the scenic Harbor river bridge and world class sunsets. Absolutely amazing! Beaufort, only 15 miles down the road, is the second oldest city in South Carolina and is the very embodiment of a 'Low Country' coastal town. It is so beautiful, many movies were filmed here including 'Forest Gump' and 'The Big Chill'. If you love golf as much as we do, you will love the many golf course within a few minutes drive. Our house was built to allow not only us to enjoy all the low country has to offer, but you as well. You are welcome here at The Hampton House.

Great Beach House, So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. We got together with family and really enjoyed our time at the Hampton House. If your looking to just kick back, watch the dolphins follow the shrimp boats, kyack in the morning after that cup of joe or just stroll along the surf at sunset, then this is the place. We did a lot of grilling and it was great to sit in the screened in porch to have dinner. The house is very equipped with everything you need and if there was something you needed derrick and jean were very accommodating on making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We hope we can come back next year to experience another good trip. Thank you Jean for all your help and Derrick your home is lovely and very inviting. See you all next summer!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Hampton House! The house is beautiful, very comfortable and absolutely everything you need is there. We loved having all the beach toys, chairs, tent and umbrellas available to use. The kayaks were also a lot of fun. Having the use of the park pass to visit Hunting Island was great. We enjoyed several outings there. We loved the quick walk down the boardwalk to a practically private beach, and enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We would love to visit again!!

Great trip, wonderful house, very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week at the Hampton House. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed having the beach to ourselves since the house is at the very end of the island. We rode the golf cart to the pool a couple of times and also enjoyed access to the workout facility on the island. The kitchen had essentials like seasonings, salt/pepper, etc which I am always grateful for. The owner was very responsive and concerned that we had a good visit with no issues. We did get lots of bug bites outside as is expected in the low country. The only other thing to note is that you are really on the "sound"/part of the Harbor River so there aren't any waves which is nice for kids, but also at low tide the ground is like pluff mud and squishes between your toes, so my kids didn't want to play in the water anytime the tide was low.

This island had lots of wild life (crabs, birds, turtles) and we loved watching the dolphins from the porch every day!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house for a vacation! The views truly are amazing. This house has all the amenities you need inside and out. The kitchen has all the cookware you will need. There are plenty of games/puzzles for the rainy days ( we contributed a few ), and kayaks along with many other beach toys for the sunny days. We will be returning to the Hampton House!

Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described - outstanding views, private location, enormous beach, clean and comfortable, nicely maintained, responsive owner. We’ve stayed at several houses on Harbor Island and Fripp. The Hamptons house was our best experience. The house is both comfortable and impressive. The kitchen is nicely equipped, there are all sorts of toys for kids and adults and there’s clearly been a lot of thought put into making the experience positive and convenient. We recommend it highly.
