Lowcountry Villa Reviews
Me and my family had a wonderful week relaxing and enjoying the flora and fauna of Harbor Island, SC.
The condo was very cozy and we felt at home from the moment we walked in. It was very organized and stocked with everything we needed and more. Would recommend for people who like to cook. Thank You
We had such a great time on Harbor Island. It was our first time visiting and we can’t wait to come back. The condo was excellent and had everything we needed for our stay. It was a short walk to the beach and our kids loved looking at all the creatures once we got there. We saw hermit crabs, sand crabs and horseshoe crabs. The shallow water was great for the kids to swim in. We recommend driving a mile or so to Hunting Island State Park beach too. Felt like we were driving through a rainforest only to reach a beautiful secluded beach. The Palm trees framing the beach made it feel like a tropical island. Beaufort is a short 15 minute ride and has many great shops and restaurants on the water…. and some great ice cream parlors for the kids, and adults 🙂 Rob was great to deal with and answered all of our questions about the area. We look forward to returning very soon!! -NY transplants in Columbia SC.

We loved staying here! The condo was super clean and comfortable. The views were unbelievable with an immense beach right outside. Quiet, peaceful, convenient. Joanna was very nice and fast to respond. Thank you!
