The beach is literally steps from the back yard of the house, and the sunrise beach walks were spectacular! Bay Street in Beaufort is about a 30 minute drive and has so many amazing great restaurants and shops to explore. Will definitely be back!"

"The location area of the house was incredible. Loved the spacious home and beautiful views. Loved having two balconies facing the water. Spacious bedrooms, family room, kitchen, and dining areas. I had a few issues and contacted rental property personnel. Quick to fix some issues. A/C in one of the bedrooms was nonexistent. I sent suggestions for a couple of small cleaning/fix it issues that hopefully will be easily remedied. Overall, a beautiful place and area."

House was very nice but had some wear and tear that goes with a beach front home. Not enough to bother us but if you are very picky it could be an issue. Our family absolutely loved it!"

"We arrived late in the evening but check in was smooth and the instructions were perfect to access the home. The elevator was a big help with bringing in the luggage. Waking up in the morning to the most incredible ocean views and sunrise was absolutely breathtaking. The whole week was perfect. House was very clean and well equipped with EVERYTHING you could need for an enjoyable vacation. Beach chairs and coolers easily accessible and just a few steps to the sand. The house itself is decorated beautifully and there is plenty space for everyone to spread out. Dining room table was great for playing games. The kitchen was very well stocked. We loved spending time eating lunch on the screened in porch. Oh, and the dolphins were beautiful and we saw so many every day. Sunsets are also stunning! A beautiful home in an amazing spot. We will be back! Thank you so much for sharing this gem of a home."

"Our 6th year in Harbor Island and we will not be renting this house again. The house previously rented was sold and is not for rent. The house was surface cleaned until we started noticing things on Sunday after our Saturday arrival. The screened in porch was so dirty our feet were black; we went to Walmart purchasing a bucket, mop, and Mr Clean to scrub the decking 2 times. The house is not appointed for more than 4-6 people- there were no knives, no steak knives, and glasses were few. We bought knives and glasses, left the set of 12 glasses. We did not know the 5th BR/4th bath was in the basement and “luxury” definitely does not apply. With 3 exterior doors, a hot hallway with no vents so the doors had to be closed… not a safe environment for children. The front bedroom on the main floor was extremely hot and we used 2 small fans continuously to keep the room at a moderate level. Heat-blocking window treatments are desperately needed. The screened in porch and upper deck furniture were extremely dirty and we did not sit on them without a towel. The first floor bath mat had loaded sand in them as well as the front and screened-in porch doors. The ceiling over the master bed is buckling from water damage and all the AC vents have heavy 1/2 inch or more of dust coating. Great location but not what we expected."

"It’s difficult to enjoy your stay when there are not enough beds for your group due in an inaccurate description and a sofa bed that is unable to be used due to a previous guest vomiting in it and it not being cleaned. Additionally, one of the toilets was out of commission for 3 days. In fairness to the owner, he did give us about a 13% refund, which was minimal considering that my adult daughter had to sleep on a very uncomfortable sofa for the week. The property managers were very helpful and did as much as they could do given the circumstances. I believe the owner has modified the home description after our complaints. If you have single adults in your party, this is not the house for you."

We brought extra pots and pans, but we didn't need to bring anything except the food. The beach was very nice and 70 degrees on Christmas day. This was my first time renting and the process was so seamless. We had 10 adults and everyone had so much space to roam or for quite time. My Mom passed in October 2021 and this was our very first Christmas without her. The beach house experience was magical and brought so much joy into our hearts."
