Why Ty gilmore chose Saint Helena Island
Once I felt the gentle breezes and saw the flowing waters, sandy beach and spacious views of Harbor Island, I was hooked enough to find my property.

paradise for the week
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It's our 3rd time there and this was laid out perfectly for our family! So close to the pool and beach - was awesome and will return again !!!
Excellent location in beautiful natural area, friendly complex. Good wifi and cable TV service. Love blue tile floor. Had great visit to nearby state park beach to body surf. Could use more detailed instructions on door lock code and lock box . Would have loved recommendations on local dining and groceries, lots of interesting looking places nearby.
Thanks for the reminder to leave a list of restaurants and grocery stores. Many excellent restaurants to choose from. Publix, Food Lion, Walmart grocery stores nearby.
Great Condo within Walking Distance to Beach
My wife and I stayed here with our dog over Memorial Day weekend. We were a bit hesitant after some of the reviews, but the condo was spotless when we arrived. It might not have been decorated like a brand new condo on HGTV, but it was clean, comfortable, and felt like a home away from home. You could see a section of the beach from the screened in porch and it was only a short walk away. Albeit, we spent most of our time on Hunting Island which was less than a 10 minute drive. Our dog loved the cold tile floor and great AC of the condo, but enjoyed the strong breeze and water at Hunting Island. The beach next to the condo was always very shallow during the day at low tide, but that made it easier for the dog who was a bit scared of the big waves. We ate out mostly at Foolish Frog about 15 min north because the food was so good. There are a couple small restaurants within 5 min or less of the condo if you prefer. Both are dog friendly. We will be returning to this condo for future trips.
Thank you. It is good to know we have found a better cleaning company and we look forward to your next visit.
Harbor Island Condo
Condo is in a nice location. I’m glad we brought our own towels and sheets. When we arrived there was two plastic bags of laundry on the bed that did not smell or look clean. The kitchen could use a deep clean, dishes were chipped and there was junk in the drawers. When looking for the coffee decanter I opened the dishwasher which was full of dishes that had black mold on them. Needless to say, I went out for coffee each day.
We just changed cleaning companies. It is good to get this review, tho not good, so we can make arrangements with a better company.
A little snafu on check in but other wise good.
We are trying a different kind of lock that requires a code. The code changes monthly and that was the challenge checking in with a guest. Resolved now.
Only drawbacks we're parking.
Loved the screened in porch! Ocean view was beautiful! Owners answered all my questions promptly. They were very accommodating. Parking area was tight. I ended up parking in lot out front of building L. Lots of construction work & noises!

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!
