Description

Welcome to Barefoot Palmetto House, a place for family fun in the sun! No shoes required here; palmetto trees included! This home has a newly remodeled living room and kitchen ready for guests to enjoy. The four-bedroom, two-bath beach house comes with a golf cart, Hunting Island State Park pass, and a location that offers more privacy than many other beach homes. We are only a short boardwalk stroll to a serene 2 1/2 mile stretch of pristine white sand beach bordering the Atlantic coast. You can often see dolphins playing in the water and spectators can always spot a shrimp boat or two.

The open floor plan makes it perfect for family vacations. The master bedroom features a luxury king-size bed, while two other guestrooms offer queen beds. The fourth bedroom is perfect for the kids with two sets of bunk beds. This house has everything you need to enjoy your stay including bed linens, kitchen cookware, a second full size refrigerator, TV's, beach chairs, and a BBQ grill. We even have a ping-pong table and a closet full of books and games. Enjoy your morning coffee on the comfortable screened in porch or relax in the hammocks. Our rental also includes a golf cart for exploring the island and easy access to the Beach and Racket Club pool.

Harbor Island is a beautiful, gated community located in the Lowcountry of the Carolina Sea Islands (near Hilton Head, Savannah, and Charleston). The natural beauty is incredible with Spanish moss-draped live oak trees and lush palmetto trees surrounding glistening marshes. This gated community has 24-hour security and boasts of 2 ½ miles of pristine, private white sandy beaches that are uncrowded and perfect for any family getaway. Water sports of all kinds are available in this area include kayaking, fishing off the beach, and crabbing from the tidal creeks.

We are located 14 miles east of historic downtown Beaufort, SC, and Paris Island. The Lowcountry area of SC has been the backdrop to many prominent feature films including the latest Netflix hit Outer Banks (Yes, it is filmed in South Carolina!). Other movies filmed here include: The Stars fell on Alabama, Forest Gump, The Big Chill, and The Prince of Tides. We are just a short walk or golf cart drive to The Beach and Racket Club of Harbor Island which features an Olympic-size pool and workout facility. Other Harbor Island amenities included volleyball, tennis, pickleball, basketball courts, and of course the BEACH!

The lighthouse and beach at Hunting Island State Park is a popular destination less than a mile from the gate at Harbor Island and we include a Hunting Island State Park pass. The pass allows access to parking, beach, hiking trails and the nature center. All you need now is to pack your sunscreen and come enjoy a piece of low-country paradise. Follow us at @Barefoot_palmetto_house.

"Property was clean, neat and nicely stocked with necessities. Layout of the house was nice and accommodating, the porch area was great and had nice furniture. The extra refrigerator in this area was nice to have! The property was right next to the beach access which was great, and the community pool was fantastic. And, the gated community was gorgeous!"

"We loved our stay at the Barefoot Palmetto. We went at the end of February, which is still the off season so the beach was secluded and a dream. The residents on this island are very friendly and treat you as if you are a full time resident. We have so many Great memories to take forward with us. Will stay here again in the future. "Thank you" to the property manager for helping when needed, very responsive. Loved our stay!"

"Probably the best "equipped" rental I've ever stayed in. So many items in the kitchen, beach toys, chairs, etc etc etc. And the location of the house is perfect... short walk to beach and even shorter golf cart trip to pool. Really can't ask for a better spot. Each day we were the first family out on the beach at 9am. Most people we ever saw on the beach was maybe 15. Beautiful. Quiet. Peaceful. Loved driving the golf cart around. We hope to come back many times in the future."

Our favorite was going to the beach and it’s a Super close beach access. The kitchen is well stocked with accessories for making your own meals. We also enjoyed the ping pong downstairs and played basket ball at the court down the road. We would recommend and return!"

"Such a sweet clean house with a great location in the neighborhood. It was our first time at harbor island and we were so taken by how pristine the dunes are. The beach is calm, the views of marshes are maxing. Neighborhood is quiet, yet very take care of, there is a neighborhood store and bike rental. The golf cart being included with the rental is an additional perk. House is clean, has such nice energy of a place loved and cared for."

"We had a wonderful time on Harbor Island! 10 adults plus 1 infant in a FABULOUS 4bd/2bath house. Floor plan was perfect for us and we loved that the dining table was huge and part of the living room, which made it easy for game nights. Golf cart, super close beach access, food trucks coming into gated community, pickleball courts, and local restaurants all really made our stay great! Our rental home had a ping pong table, spikeball set, and kites, plus an extra fridge (below the house) that really helped. I even went on a volunteer "turtle patrol" on the beach at 6: 15am and learned so much. Our first time visiting the area and we would love to return."

We had everything we needed there (the house is very well stocked and the kitchen user friendly), and we were a close walk to the beach. Our two adult children came for a separate week each with their families, and we had plenty of room for all! My daughter and I really enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened porch where we felt wonderful breezes! Our grandchildren loved the pool at the beach club and the books and games that were at the house. We worked through TideWatch and they were very helpful and communicative! We plan to use them again and hope to stay in this great beach house if it is available."
