Welcome to the Salt Water Flat! This charming remodeled Cedar Creek condo is located in the gated community of Harbor Island. This getaway is on the quiet, southern end of the island, close to amenities but with a sense of privacy. The two decks overlook the beautiful tidal marshlands and Hunting Island State Park with ocean views in the distance. The Salt Water Flat has all amenities you need for a perfect vacation, including WIFI, cable, washer/dryer & a fully equipped kitchen. The Living Room opens onto a private deck with steps leading to a short path to one of the island's many beach accesses. Dine outside on the private porch, grill out, or just curl up on the sleeper sofa and enjoy a movie….whatever you choose, this place is ready for you. The bedroom also has its own covered deck-a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night.

Spend your day at the island's private beach or relax by one of the 3 community swimming pools. Take a stroll on the island's nature trail to watch for local wildlife. Harbor Island is a bird sanctuary with lots to see including seabirds, pelicans, migratory birds, sea turtles, dolphins and even the occasional alligator! In addition to the ocean and beach there are tennis courts, pickle-ball, a putting green, basketball court, and a fitness center all within a short walking distance. There are multiple restaurants nearby along with many fresh seafood markets where you can buy local catches to prepare in the fully stocked kitchen or outdoor grill. Right next to Harbor Island is Hunting Island State Park with beautiful beaches, hiking, and fishing pier. You will find a complimentary pass in the condo or at the Tidewatch offices. You can also explore the nearby community of Frogmore or spend the day in historic Beaufort or Port Royal.

The Salt Water Flat is the perfect getaway for a quick weekend away or a long vacation at the beach. Kick up your feet, watch the sunset, and enjoy the lowcountry

"The location is beautiful, rural, secure, and close to the beach. On night two, a huge cockroach/water bug with large antennas scurried across the pillows on the bed, and we were unable to locate it to ensure that it did not return when we went to bed. I attempted to contact the leasing company using the emergency line since I did not have bug spray and there weren’t any stores within 10 minutes of the abode. After 3 calls to the rental company, an e-mail and contacting VRBO, a text was received about a refund for that night by the leasing entity. I left the abode that night without an alternative form of lodging. Of note, I had to drive to Beaufort to obtain cellular frequency. Imagine sitting in your vehicle in a public parking lot at night searching for hotels in the area. One might say, I could have stayed in the condo over night. As a provider, who has removed buds from the ears of patients, I did not want to suffer such an ill-fate. All in all, money was lost and so was the joy of staying in such a beautiful place."

"I took my husband to Harbor Island to celebrate his birthday and it was the perfect weekend getaway. The drive in was breathtaking and the views from our condo were wonderful. We arrived and unpacked a little, then settled onto the deck with a cold beer and some boiled shrimp we picked up in Beaufort on our way in. The perfect start to the weekend. Saturday brought some exploring around Fort Fremont and the Chapel of Ease, then we hit the beach that afternoon. It's such an easy walk to the beach from the condo! It was calm and quiet and we met some lovely folks also visiting the area. A trip back into Beaufort for a birthday dinner Saturday night was the ideal end to our little getaway. The condo was spotless and comfortable. Parking was easy and we had everything we needed. Getting into Harbor Island was a breeze since we had the pre-purchased gate pass, and accessing the key in the lock box was easy. We will certainly consider this condo again!"

"This condo was in great condition and very clean. The location is perfect overlooking the marsh but just a few steps from two boardwalks to the beach. We didn’t visit the pools much but they were very nice. It was well stocked and had all the toiletries we needed as well bath towels. The view is beautiful from the back porch, and you can see the view from the dining room table with the curtains open. Overall we were very happy with our stay and we would definitely stay here again!"

"We stayed in this Harbor Island condo October 22nd-25th. The property was just as described (better), and the location was perfect for my wife and me. Condo was very tastefully decorated and we had all of the amenities that we needed. So nice not to have to carry linens/towels. Weather while there was pretty incredible, and we spent all of our time outdoors either on the beach, on the Harbor River strand, or exploring Hunting Island beach and park. At night the natural darkness allows you to see the Milky Way (something I used to take for granted). Got to know the owner of the new store at the Beach and Racquet Club (pools) and ended up watching one sunset from the terrace there. Dozens and dozens of birds roosting - the most impressive were the wood storks, which are actually a protected species. So good to see their strong comeback on HI. Overall, lots of wildlife (inc. bald eagles), and we've never seen so many dolphins. Both on HI and on pier at Hunting Island State Park. We tend to eat "lite" for breakfast and lunch, and then enjoy an early supper. This trip we ate twice at Johnson Creek Tavern (one takeout and once in bar). Both meals very good. Also ate dinner at The Fish Camp in Port Royal. Excellent atmosphere, views, and food. Lunch on the way down at Plums in Beaufort. It is always consistent from our experience. Again, we are outside people, and averaged walking 8-12 miles per day. So for us, HI provided the ideal getaway spot. We have already talked about a return trip in the fall. One last note, communications with both the owner Martha and property manager Jennifer were extremely professional and prompt, and that made the experience even more seamless. Thanks to both of you."
