Shrimp On Da Fly on Harbor Island

Beach-Chic Cottage with creek views and Golf Cart

Located in the private gated community of Harbor Island, Shrimp On Da Fly is a charming two-bedroom, two-bath British colonial-style cottage with room for six that overlooks a tidal creek; a favorite spot for dolphin sightings! Ideal for a family escape to the Lowcountry, the home includes a golf cart and access to Harbor Island Community amenities including a pool, racquet club, fitness center, playground, private beach, and chipping green.

Impeccably decorated, the main level of the cottage features a bright open floor plan; the focal point of which is the kitchen and living room. The cooks in your group will enjoy preparing meals in the well-appointed kitchen, with its new stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen flows into the living room, with its flat-screen wall-mounted TV and seating for six. There is also a four-seat table that can be used for dining or playing board games.

The primary bedroom is just down the hall from the kitchen and offers a king-sized bed. Enjoy a spa-like experience in the bathroom with its spacious shower, take in views of the creek from the private balcony, or watch a movie on the flat-screen TV.

The lower portion of the home was recently remodeled to allow for a guest area with a separate entrance that cannot be accessed from the main floor. Here you will find a bedroom with one queen-sized bed and a bunk bed, a wall-mounted TV, air-conditioner, and a desk. These bunk beds are smaller in size and will not accommodate adults; however, they are perfect for small children. On this level, there is also a full bath (shower stall only), as well as a washer and dryer. The grounds of the home come replete with a deck, an outside open shower, a charcoal grill, and outdoor furniture.

Bedrooms: 2
Baths: 2 (showers only)

Outdoor Charcoal Grill
Pet-Friendly: Yes, 1 small dog (about 30 lb limit) for $150 pet fee

Smiles for a Week

Comfort and style are truly wrapped together at The Shrimp. The natural setting was perfect for the breathtaking sunsets and morning sunrises. My grandson was in awe of being able to fish directly out back in the canal and granddaughter couldn't wait for the golf cart ride to the beach for an afternoon. We searched for baby turtles, visited the lighthouse, played basketball and spent relaxing times at the beach. Among the BEST though was the giant Jinga game tucked away and available for rowdy play. An almost perfect week spent with an almost perfect (?!) family.

Great location - close to serene, private beach

My fiance and I had such a lovely time at this beach house last weekend. We enjoyed relaxing at the pool and riding around the island on the golf cart to the private, serene beach - truly heaven on earth. When it rained, we played cards, cooked healthy meals in the fully stocked kitchen, and made some great memories just being together in the quiet peacefulness of the island. The beach house is impeccably clean and decorated, and we really liked the view of the marsh from the back porch. There was a coffee/cider shop, Carolina Cider Co. & Superior Coffee, right down the road, and we absolutely fell in love with it. Great place to grab a pastry, enjoy a handcrafted beverage, and treat yourself to something special. What a delightful way to break away from the details of the day-to-day! It really was a physical, mental, and spiritual refreshment for us. We look forward to staying again SOON.
