Just 15 min. from historic Beaufort, 5 min to Hunting Island State Park; 57 miles to enchanting Savannah, 69 miles to thriving Charleston and 12 miles to Parris Island. Beaufort offers all the down-home charm of an older, southern city minus the really big crowds. (However, with more than 2 million visitors per year, it's not entirely disregarded.) History, architecture, the waterfront, a healthy local arts scene and great local restaurants separate Beaufort from other low country locales. Named the cutest town in SC by PowWow.com as the poster-child for adorable towns, it has all the Southern charm you could ever dream of: friendly people, a low-country culture, a slow-paced lifestyle, Antebellum architecture and Spanish moss as far as the eye can see.
Décore: Ocean Blue ceramic floor tile, rattan living room furniture with futon, sailor blue bedroom furniture with a queen pillow-top bed and a nautical theme. This first floor vacation condo features a screen porch overlooking one of the island's 3 pools with a view of 3 mile long private, uncrowded beach and morning sunrises. Just 70 yards over the boardwalk, over the sea oats/sand dunes and you're on the beach!! Pets must be well behaved and preapproved. Pet owners planning to bring pet(s) must reserve with a credit card. Pets may require an extra cleaning fee, especially long-haired pets.
Close to rookeries with hundreds of herons and egrets.
We love to relax and enjoy the warmth of the sun, cool water and carefree attitude in a quiet neighborhood atmosphere with 24-hour security guards at the gated entrance. Take long walks on your own sandy beach. All the pleasures and privacy that a hotel cannot offer.
11 GOLF COURSES WITHIN 15 MILES.
And golf is only one of nearby Beaufort’s drawing cards. Just 10 minutes away Camelot Farms provides Equestrian Adventures. It won’t take long for you to discover why movie makers so often choose the Lowcountry as a movie set. Forrest Gump, The Prince of Tides, and The Big Chill are but a few of our credits.

Annette and staff has everything you need to make your 1 night, 1 week or 1 month enjoyable. Just bring the food and your favorite spices and your ready to go. Beautiful Cozy Porch, close to crabbing, fishing and beach relaxing. Beautiful landscape greets you as you enter the property. If you wish to do laundry FREE Laundry on site right outside the condo door. We have made Beaufort our OFFICIAL Home away from home (almost bi-weekly we are in Beaufort) and thanks to our new friend Annette this condo will be another reason to add to our long list 'WHY WE LOVE BEAUFORT'..

What a relaxing, peaceful vacation. The condo was like a home away from home, very clean and inviting. It rained our first night there but the screened porch was a great way to spend a rainy night. We even got to enjoy watching a school of dolphins swim while lounging on the beach. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful, serene place to enjoy some down time!
A PIECE OF HEAVEN!!

Harbor is a very peaceful and serene environment, and it is a must see. The condo is very quaint and relaxing. I recommend going to this condo as much as possible.
