Relaxing stay at Southern Pearl
What a wonderful relaxing week we had at Southern Pearl! A small intimate island, Harbor Island is a great place to get away from the crowds and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean and birds. We had a front row seat to watch turtle hatchlings make their way to the ocean, the dolphins frolicking up and down the coastline, and the many different species of birds and butterflies that inhabit the island. Lee and Frances are wonderful hosts. Frances was always a text or email away if I had any questions. Their home is beautiful, well equipped and very comfortable. The bed swing on the screened porch was a favorite place to read a book and enjoy the sea breeze! There are some good restaurants in Beaufort and surrounding areas and purchasing fresh shrimp straight off the boat was a treat. Great memories were made! ”
Perfect ocean vacation home
We loved our stay at the Southern Pearl! The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Its not far to historic Beaufort. A market and a fun restaurant are even closer - just outside the gate of the community. The owner has thoughtfully provided everything you could need for a beach vacation. We would love to return to this wonderful beachfront home. ”
