Sea Islands, South Carolina

Shipwatch Beach House on Harbor Island

Inviting home with wifi and beautiful water views

Nestled in a row of brightly colored beach houses on a quiet cul-de-sac, this Harbor Island home is ideal for a family vacay or a group getaway to the shore. Elegant— but with an unmistakable beachy vibe— this charming oasis has everything needed to feel at home during a holiday by the sea.

With convenient covered parking for 3 cars (one covered, two in driveway). On the first floor, guests enter the home up a flight of stairs and into the light and bright living space. Creamy neutral walls mix with coastal-inspired furnishings and artwork to give the space a refined yet casual atmosphere. Wide windows with plantation shutters offer direct views of the ocean.

The kitchen features crisp white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. A dining table has seating for up to eight people, making it the ideal spot for your group to gather together over freshly flipped pancakes in the mornings as you plan out your beach day.

Even with all the comforts of home inside, the sound of the waves, swaying palm trees, and the fresh ocean breezes will draw you outside to the deck again and again. A row of Adirondack chairs beckons you to sit down, relax, and stay a spell. It’s the perfect spot to linger over a warm mug of coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine in the evenings.

Shipwatch Beach House sleeps 8 people across 3 spacious bedrooms:

Primary Bedroom- First Floor
King Bed
The first-floor primary suite features a luxurious king-sized bed and a separate entrance onto the front deck. The private en suite bath is lovely and bright, with a seafoam green color scheme.

Bedroom 2- Second Floor
This bedroom has one queen-sized bed and direct access to a second-floor screened-in porch with ocean views.

Bedroom 3- Second Floor
The third bedroom has two queen-sized beds, allowing for plenty of flexible sleeping space. There is also direct access to the screened-in deck from this bedroom.

Between the two upstairs bedrooms is another full-sized bathroom that can be accessed from the hall. Each of the three bedrooms has a flat-screen television.

At Shipwatch Beach House, you’re only a few steps away from sandy toes. There are three miles of pristine, sandy beach to explore just outside your door. The rolling sand dunes, swaying sea oats, and salty waves are home to pelicans, egrets, herons, horseshoe crabs, and dolphins. And as a guest of Harbor Island, you have access to three sparkling community pools--located just 75' from the home--as well as tennis courts, a putting green, and a workout center just a short walk away.

Please be advised that all guests are required to have a car pass in order to access the island. Up to 3 car passes are allowed. Passes must be confirmed through Natural Retreats in advance of your stay.

As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory and a free kayak rental. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”

Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.

The process was easy and the house was very clean. Only complaint I had was the difficulty of paying for a car pass to the island. That process was not clear and was difficult.
