My husband, Lee, and I, Frances, bought this home 15 years ago .... we fell in love with Harbor Island as soon as we drove through the gate. I am from a large family, 4 siblings, and we always spent two weeks each year at the beach in South Carolina. My parents had a place at the beach and my Dad loved sportfishing. We all have children and grandchildren (there are 44 in our immediate family) and the beach has always held a special place for all of us. When we walked in our home for the first time I could envision sharing it with my family. Our grandchildren ages 10, 6, 4, 3 and 1 have grown up here ..... they love this beach and they love doing turtle patrol and watching the dolphins! We lived in the home permanently for 9 years and my husband found it to be a little too quiet for him! He is an avid outdoorsman that loves hunting and the woods. We have a 130 acre farm,Long Pond, that is his love and the beach is mine ... so we compromised and bought a small patio home near the farm in the city and easy driving to the beach for me 2 years ago. We both love boating and have spent many summer days boating around in the creeks and the intracoastal waterway through Beaufort to Hilton Head and Charleston. I am an avid reader and love nothing more than curling up on the bed swing on the screened porch and reading all day. My other favorite outings are playing duplicate bridge with my 3 sisters and traveling.
