Come and relax at Southern Escape. Enjoy the beach decor of pastel blue, pink, yellow and green used throughout our villa. From your master bedroom on the second floor, you can watch the dolphins play or the shrimp boats go by. Have your morning coffee or evening glass of wine while sitting out on the oceanfront deck, looking out with an unobstructed view of the South Carolina low country shoreline.
If you decide that you need to get back in touch with civilization, we have high speed internet for you to use with your lap top. We have set up our home to be comfortable for you to use as your vacation home. All this and the lowest weekly summer rate for a 2 bedroom villa on the island.
On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides. At low tide, you may find that you walk out about 300 yards to get to the ocean. The beach also changes from month to month and year to year. Due to the shallow grade of our beaches, there are very little waves to speak of on our beaches, which is great for little ones. For the folks in your party that want to body surf, we have Hunting island State park open 7 days/week.

A week just was not long enough at Harbor Island. As usual Harbor Island was great clean, wide open beach that is not crowded and the amenities of the island neighborhood were great. D212 Condo was a good place to stay, comfortable and clean and for me a great Air Conditioner. Myself and 3 other family members had no problem with finding a place to sleep and were comfortable cooking and just coming in an lounging around. The only negative I can say is I expected the unit to have its on wifi, but we have to connect to and pay for a island wifi which was a bit spotty and would not allow our chrome cast to connect so we could not use our internet based TV.

We really enjoy our time in Harbor Island. We go at least once every couple of years and it always lives up to expectations. Casual environment, ocean front view, ample space on the beaches, convenient restaurants/food delivery and grocery store access. Recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing stay

We love harbor island. Been going there for over 20 years and it just gets better. From the beautiful sunrise, to the sunset, each day was filled with memories that hopefully we can carry on for many more years to come. If your looking to get away to a safe, clean, secure, comforting vacation, with plenty of beach, no crowds, no busy boardwalks, then this is the place to be. You never have to leave the island, golfing, pools, beach, tennis, to watching the dolphins daily this is sure to be a great place to be.

It is nice to go to a brand new area and have the accomodations and surroundings deliver as advertised! Accomodations are not luxury but are very comfortable,very well equiped and modern for our extended stay during March and april...and what can you say about that magnificant beach!? About the only thing that out shone the beach was the warm hospitality of the local people of Beaufort and the surrounding areas... we simply had a wonderful stay in this beautiful and historic corner of South Carolina. We will be back!

We recently rented a condo on Harbor Island and had a wonderful vacation experience.
Greta (with Seaside Getaways) was very helpful and accomodated our needs professionally and quickly.(We booked at the last minute.) Our condo was very clean and well equipted. It was so nice to look out at the beautiful view of the ocean each morning. We will definately return to Harbor Island and rent through this company again.

This is our 2nd time visiting Harbor Island - The 1st time we rented from Harbor Island Rentals and had no issues.
This time we rented a similar unit from Seaside Getaway. For the amount of money we paid for the week for this rental, I would have expected the unit to be more updated. The unit was not cleaned properly when we arrived - trash in the kitchen sink, sand in the tubs, and a stain on our bedding (looked like a baby changing accident). Just had a very unclean feel about it. The biggest issue I had was more with the rental company - Any guest coming out to visit you is required to pay a $10 fee per day. I have family in Beaufort, so this was unreasonable to me. No one informed be of that before I paid for the unit.
Overall, my family and I managed to have an enjoyable visit - the beach was great and Beaufort is wonderful, but I will not be using Seaside Getaways in the future!
