-- GREAT LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PARRIS ISLAND GRADUATIONS --

Located in quiet Harbour Key, we have one of Harbor Island's most secluded locations. The beach is a pleasant 5 minute ride in our two golf carts, or n3 minutes by car, and along the way you will pass salt marshes and rookeries abundant with bird life. Harbour Key is especially good for your children. It is gated so they can ride bikes, run and play safely. Our back yard is very private and is perfect for family fun. We are located on a beautiful lagoon and we overlook an expansive marshland and salt pan; the views are breathtaking in every direction! Sunsets on Harbor Island often encompass the east as well as the west, so you can enjoy them from any of our three decks. For 2016 we have added windows and new windowed garage doors and front door to brighten the ground floor. New UV and light blocking curtains have been added to the bedrooms and living room. THE 6 1/2' X 31' REAR PORCH IS NOW SCREENED FOR YOUR INSECT-FREE ENJOYMENT!

Our home was new to the rental market and completely re-furnished as of 2015. There are two master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Both masters have new queen beds. Sliders open onto balconies with plenty of comfortable outdoor seating. The other two bedrooms are both beautifully decorated; one with a double bed, the other with two twins. We use high quality linens and towels, and provide starter soaps and paper goods for your convenience. Front load washer and dryer are on the first floor convenient to the bedrooms. The house has a reverse floor plan with three of the bedrooms on the first floor. The main living area is on the second floor and allows amazing views in all directions. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite counters; new SS dishwasher and refrigerator in 2017. Every room has a large ceiling fan for your comfort.

Quality dinnerware, cookware and kitchen supplies are so important for those who want to eat in, and we've worked hard to make sure your kitchen is well appointed. There is also a gas grill with all of the tools. There is seating for 8 at the dining room table and 4 at the breakfast nook. The living room has a new 42” flat screen HDTV with cable and Roku, and the 1st floor master BR HDTV has cable and Roku as well. Wi-Fi throughout the house will assure your connection to the outside world… though you may wish to just forget all that and enjoy everything that Harbor Island has to offer. You can enjoy the many amenities of the island as well: tennis, basketball, two pools, beach volleyball and two workout rooms. We also provide 8 bikes for adults and children, as well as a couple of fishing poles and beach toys.

The beach at Harbor Island is second to none. Nearly 2 1/2 miles of gorgeous soft sand, and best of all…it is private, so it isn't crowded like the public beaches. Most of the time you can walk southeast to Johnson Creek and rarely encounter anything other than pelicans, egrets, plovers, sandpipers, and dolphins.

We will have a Hunting Island State Park pass that will allow you to experience the beauty of this wonderful natural resource just a mile or two down the road when the park is re-opened after extensive renovations and beach refurbuishment later this spring 2017.

We have rented many beach houses over the years and know what is needed to make a vacation truly enjoyable. Our Harbor Island home is furnished with care and attention to the details that matter. We’d love to share it with you and your family.

About Carolyn Nadeau

We have been traveling to St. Helena for many years and we fell in love with Harbor Island and the Low Country. We bought our home in January 2015 and are looking forward to sharing it with others during the summer and spending our winters out of the cold New England snow.

Carolyn Nadeau purchased this house in 2015

Why Carolyn Nadeau chose Beaufort area

We bought 10 Key West Dr. because of it's private location. From our back decks we have an amazing view of the expansive salt pan, Harbor River, St. Helena Sound and the rookery.

What makes this house unique

Our property is ideal for families with children. We have bikes of every size to ride, and two golf carts to get everyone to the beach.

Spectacular week at an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We were on Harbor Island for the full solar eclipse and it was a phenomenal experience. This was our third year at the house and the owners keep making it better. They have added a screened porch and we sat out every night listening to the night sounds and looking at the stars. They re-finished all the floors; everything is sparkling clean. We love the north beach and this year we saw a pod of dolphins feeding off shore. We also hit a super low tide and way out on the sand bar the beach was covered with sand dollars in all sizes. We spent most days on the beach, ate in a lot and also went to some of our favorite restaurants: Dukes Bar b que, Fat Patty's.... This year we went to Charleston for a day and went over to Fort Sumter on the ferry. Totally enjoyable. We had a great time and will definitely be going back next year.

Thanks,

Greg, Mike and the gang

Beautiful home/ great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is gorgeous! The owners have thought of every little detail that will make your stay more comfortable. And it was SO clean! Off the back deck, we got to see two alligators (one small, one big) in the marsh, along with all the beautiful birds! We used the kitchen every day for breakfast and lunch. We did go out for dinner every night and even drove into Hilton Head one night to visit the outlets. It was about an hour drive to get there.

The golf carts and bikes were great to have. The kids enjoyed biking everywhere.

We like a few more waves than the Sound offers so we used the Hunting Island pass 3x! We saw dolphins almost everyday plus crabs, and found 3 sand dollars plus lots of shark teeth! We visited north and south beach and went up in the lighthouse. Very thankful for the pass provided. The drive to Hunting Island by car was about 5 minutes.

We enjoyed being able to come back to the pool and volleyball court and have some fun there.

Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!!

Fantastic Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Harbor Island and we were thrilled from start to finish. First, the location of this house is beyond amazing. It is totally private and is right on a rookery and there were literally hundreds of birds on nests; some with eggs and others with hatchlings. Truly a site to see. The house itself is beautiful. Very spacious, and spotlessly clean. Everything you need is there: kitchen supplies, utensils, dishes, linens and everything is such nice condition. We have never rented a house that was so well equipped and so well taken care of. We made good use of the bikes and golf carts. The beach is spectacular. It goes on and on for what seems like miles with only a few people here and there. We saw dolphins off shore and the kids had so much fun exploring the tidal pools and seeing all of the hermit crabs. The owners were excellent to work with. They were always quick to respond to our questions and were great about suggestions on places to go... although we really just loved staying at the house and on the beach. We are so glad we chose this property and would recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful, beautiful place to stay.

A truly five star experience!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently vacationed here for a week and we loved it. Everything was perfect. This was our first vacation together as a couple and we couldn't be happier with everything. South Carolina was beautiful. The views from the house every morning and evening were gorgeous. The birds made a wonderful soundtrack for us as we relaxed and enjoyed the scenery. Now the house itself...what a wonderful home it was! It was very clean and well stocked. The ceilings were nice and tall which made the home so open and inviting. The kitchen appliances were modern and well kept. The golf carts were a great accommodation because it was fun driving around the island and they made trips to the beach much more convenient. Perhaps the best part though were the owners. The care and attention to detail they put into the house really showed us they truly care about their renter's needs. That was a major key for us. We felt like we were staying with family because of how comfortable we were. Bravo Ken and Carolyn!

Amazing Home Spectacular Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at 10 Key West Dr and we came a couple of weeks earlier than last year. What a great week. The house is perfect for our group--, 6 of us in our late 20's... friends since grammar school who like to get away from it all every year. We had plenty of space and every amenity that we could imagine; the internet is great, new appliances and kitchen ware made us feel right at home. The house is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The owners have clearly gone to great effort to make the guests comfortable. Having two golf carts is the best... so nice to ride around the island. We love the beach at harbor island and got to see baby turtles heading for the ocean. We also love Hunting Island and having the parking pass is a nice bonus.This year we tried a couple of new restaurants including Dukes Bar b que in Beaufort. All you can eat buffet...excellent! We cooked in a lot and were happy with the kitchen& dining room set up. It worked perfectly for us. No sign of the big gator this year, but we saw the smaller one quite a bit. He stays out in the rookery. This house is becoming our regular vacation spot. We will definitely be back again next year. The owners are great to work with and are helpful from the moment you contact them.... Thanks Carolyn & Ken... Greg, Mike, Luke and crew!

Great home and great week!

  • 5 of 5

Working with Carolyn on planning our trip was wonderful! She was very helpful and quick to respond. The house was very nice and fit our needs well. We had 3 families sharing the space and there was plenty of room for us all. The golf carts and bikes were a wonderful bonus! We would have liked to know that there was only one washcloth per person for the week so we could have brought more. Also, as mentioned on another review, we also would have liked a little more window coverage in the bedrooms to block the sunrise. The kitchen was well stocked and met our needs and there were plenty of restaurants nearby. We enjoyed having the park pass as well to get to spend a day at that beach too. The kids enjoyed the variety of wildlife found on the beach and we all enjoyed finding different wildlife daily right from the balconies of the house.

Owner's Response: Melissa was great to work with and we really appreciate the kind words!!! So glad that you had a great vacation. The cleaning crew always leaves extra linens under each sink so we will certainly follow up on that! and many thanks for the reinforcement on curtains. They are ordered and will be installed shortly.
