About the property

Direct Ocean View - Awesome Beach Condo

*****PLEASE NOTE: Construction is still happening on the Island after Hurricane Matthew. Please be aware of this when booking (roofing, beach walks, etc. being addressed)

Beach House Villas are located in a peaceful, gated community on Harbor Island which is between Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA and just 14 miles from Beaufort, SC. If you're coming to town for Marine Graduation, we are only 23 miles (about 35 minutes) from Paris Island.

This is truly a historic area with Charleston, Beaufort or Savannah making fabulous day trip destinations. On Harbor Island, the three outdoor pools, tennis courts, a putting green, and three miles of pure, untamed, sandy white beach create a private vacation destination unlike any other. Stroll along the beach and marshes and discover the abundant island wildlife, including terns, pelicans, egrets, herons, and horseshoe crabs, or sit on the sandy dunes bask in the sun while the dolphins play.

Dine at wonderful nearby restaurants that specialize in local fresh cuisine or prepare your own from fresh local seafood markets in your fully equipped kitchen.

The natural beauty of Harbor Island and the geographic location creates a setting and vacation retreat experience worth repeating.

About Jenn

Jen and I love visiting Harbor Island with our two teen aged sons Quinn and Aidan. There is something here for everyone to enjoy.

Jenn purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jenn chose Beaufort area

We fell in love the with the area and Harbor Island in particular. Our first walk on the beach was amazing...the beach is unspoiled, the sand is white, the birds and wildlife you encounter are breathtaking. As we made our way back to the beach boardwalk we spotted dolphins playing in the the water off the beach. The condo is very homey, it is a great size for our family of 4, having a bath and a 1/2 is great, too. Also, you can view 1 of the *3 pools from the balcony, which I think is a nice perk. This property and its location offers a truly relaxing beach experience. *please note: The pools close between November 1st and April 1st.

What makes this condo unique

The condo's front row location is one of the best in the complex. You'll enjoy direct oceanfront views. Don't like bugs, well you're in luck, our porch is screened so you can sit out in peace. The condo is centrally located so day trips to Savannah, Charleston and Beaufort are all just a short drive away. There are 3 pools to enjoy, tennis courts, basketball court (the boys love that), sand volley ball court, work out room. bicycle rentals and small gift shop on the premises - all of which, as our guest, you'll have access to.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're back home after a wonderful time in your condo. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend time there. The condo was well equipped, beautifully decorated and clean.

The screened porch was indeed used for coffee and tea in the morning, but was also used for a glass of wine or two in the evening. We loved the view. We would definitely come back. I enjoyed the condo as a base to show my friends around my childhood home, thank you for that opportunity. And our golden retriever was in heaven!

Wonderful visit. Condo was great loved the screened porch. Had everything we needed. The elevator was a plus with our pets. Everyone we came in contact with was nice. I highly recommend this condo. Jenn was awesome to work with. The only down side was we only scheduled 1 week and not 2. Did not want to leave.

Great vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week stay here. The condo was perfect for my husband and I and our two small dogs. It had everything we needed and I loved the decor. I loved exploring the beach and watching it change daily. My dogs grew to expect their walks every morning and evening. This was our first visit to SC. We learned a lot about the history and culture from different locals in the shops along the island as well as in Beaufort. Beaufort is a lovely town, I would like to have spent more time there. We made a trip to Charleston and ate at Fleet Landing. The shrimp and grits there are awesome. We also spent a day at Huntington Island, a true paradise. Also I recommend the Carolina Cider Company, best smoothies and coffee and lots of goodies to take home.

I highly recommend this condo. Jen and David are easy to work with and very informative. You can tell they love the area and want to share it. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Simple and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at harbor! The condo had all of the essentials and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The condo accommodated myself, my fiance, and my mom comfortably as well as our 2 dogs!! Jenn and David had excellent communication from the beginning when I booked this place. My fiance and I were able to get married on the beach thanks to Jenn' s help researching officiants and cost for marriage license and court house location! She also suggested we go to Sweetgrass for dinner to celebrate and it was amazing!!!! ( pricey but good.) It was terrific.

Cedar Reef Villas is a beautiful complex with lovely amenities. The condo was prettily decorated and very comfortable. The bed was soft but firm, the kitchen fully stocked, and the views stunning. We didn't want to leave!

beautiful loation

  • 5 of 5

Jen's condo is just steps from the beach and fewer steps to the pool. The condo has all the conveniences you need. Jen is a gracious & helpful host. My family enjoyed walking the beach & through the Harbor Island community. The pool was crystsl clear & a treat after a tough day of oceanside reading. Excellent value at a great location.

Thanks for your kind words, we love sharing the charm of the low country and Harbor with folks who appreciate the serenity and beauty (not at all a bad spot to relax and read a book)! We hope you have a chance to return to Harbor real soon! Jen
