Welcome to Harbor Island! You are just steps away from the beach and pool when you stay in our beautiful, gated island getaway located in the E Building. Updated in February 2022, our two bedroom, two and a half bath retreat has gorgeous views of the pool and ocean, both from the owners' bedroom and the private balcony. Enjoy walks among the live oak trees with Spanish moss and palmetto trees that are customary to the Low Country. Make sure to always keep an eye out for the plethora of wildlife that calls Harbor Island's ecosystem "home," including but not limited to dolphins, crabs, birds, and turtles.

The bedrooms are located on the second floor of the villa, each with its own private bathroom. The owners suite has a king bed; the guest bedroom has a full and twin. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you will need to prepare your meals - just bring your own food! There is seating in the dining area for 6, and the balcony seats 4. The Wi-Fi service enables you to work from home while enjoying the island, stream your favorite shows on tv's located in both bedrooms and the living room, and research all the great things to do in Beaufort County.

Harbor Island is one of the most peaceful locations on the East Coast and our personal favorite for vacations. The island is private, gated, and beautifully preserved. When you stay at our villa, you have full access to the Beach and Racquet Club with its large pool, kiddie pool, playground, tennis and pickleball courts, sand volleyball, and exercise facilities. The beach itself is a beauty to behold, and wildlife is plentiful. This island is truly a birdwatcher's paradise! Every time we come to this beach we are overwhelmed by its splendor, its sense of peace, and its power to relax the body and spirit. Fresh seafood and a couple of wonderful restaurants are a short bike ride from the gate.

Harbor Island itself is very quiet and slow-paced; however, many exciting destinations are a short drive away. Hunting Island State Park is only 1 mile away with a beautiful beach with great finds as the tide goes out, miles of forestland with hiking trails, fishing pier with equipment rental, and a lighthouse with breathtaking views. We have a vehicle park pass for you to borrow during your stay. Beaufort, the most charming coastal town in America, is only 15 miles away, Savannah is 45 miles away, and Charleston is 70 miles from the island. We have enjoyed all these destinations over the years on our visits to Harbor Island.

The Harbor Island pool is open from April 1 - November 1.

Reservations are subject to a 3.5% processing fee.

"Harbor Island is a magical place! We loved our stay on the island and enjoyed the location of our condo. Furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked adequately with matching dinnerware and glassware. Appreciated the dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels, and laundry soap provided. The boardwalks were great. The Tidewatch crew was friendly, professional, and fast-acting. Each time I reached out to them I received a fast response and they took care of things immediately. We appreciate that! Please do your part in keeping island life on Harbor at a slow and simple pace. It does not need fancy frills or more amenities. It's wonderful just as it is."

"We just had the best long weekend here for my birthday! We come to the area every Summer and stay between Harbor Island and Fripp and this was probably our favorite trip ever! The condo is perfectly set up for a family of 5 with little ones. Usually our 3 year old daughter sleeps in bed with us but since the second bedroom had a twin as well as a full our 3 year old was able to sleep with her brothers. They also had fun books and games for the kids and little details like a stool in the bathroom so our kids could wash their hands and brush teeth on their own. The kitchen was fully stocked and furniture was so comfortable and homey. The location was amazing and almost directly in front of the pool and one of the highlights for us was our morning coffee on the patio looking out at the ocean. We would love to come and stay again!"

"This property has a great location with porch views of the ocean and a quick 5 minute walk to the beach. The property itself is smaller and older than it looks in the pictures, and needs some maintenance, but the furniture is newer and everything was clean. It was fully stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen plus extras for the beach. The pool near the condo is very small, so we ended up walking to the larger pool in the front of the neighborhood. The sunrise on the beach was amazing, and the high/low tides are unlike any other beach we’ve been to. This is definitely a slower paced area than we are used to, but we had a very enjoyable and relaxing getaway."

"The condo was a nice option for a last minute vacation. Online communication and check-in was great and the neighborhood was nice and safe. Pickleball and tennis courts were nice to have during our stay. The condo is small, but clean. It was in need of some minor repairs, but nothing that impacted our stay."

"The best part about this villa is the view from the deck. This was the second time we visited Harbor. We love this area and all that Harbor Island has to offer. Ratings for check in and communication is only because I requested early check in the day before which seemed to be no issue. An hr before we arrived we got a call saying early check-in (12pm) would not be an option. Normally this wouldn't bother me but we were traveling with our 3 yr olds and were trying to find things to keep them busy until we could checkin. Im glad I asked if we could access the island and the pools while we wait since no one told us that was an option. When we arrived at the gate they didnt have our vehicle pass. Thankfully the security guards were able to assist. All in all we had a wonderful visit but would have appreciated better communication from the property manager."

"We took our chances and booked a getaway at the last minute. We really enjoyed our stay at Harbor Island. The unit was comfortable, clean, uncluttered, and decorated with relaxing colors. We had everything we needed for our 6-night stay. The beach and island were fun to explore on foot, as was the nearby state park. We cooked in and dined out - several excellent choices nearby. Beaufort was also fun to explore. We really enjoyed our time in the Carolina Lowcountry."

"This condo worked perfectly for our family of four's short stay at the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the linens and towels felt fresh and new. You can tell the care the owners have put into making this a lovely condo to rent, and have done their best to elevate the older age of the condo with fresh decor and necessary upgrades. The check-in process was easy and working with Tidewatch was smooth. Overall a great stay!"
