Ok, so we just don’t work and play in Sea Pines, we actually live here. It is our favorite spot on Hilton Head Island for all kinds of reasons, but here are 5 local tips as to why you should choose a Sea Pines Vacation Rental:
5. We rarely have to leave Sea Pines. Just about everything we need is located within the “gates” of Sea Pines—beach, biking, water sports, tennis and golf, shopping, drinks, dining—it is all here within our 5,000 acre community. And when we do have to venture out for groceries or a movie or a manicure, it is almost always within a 5 MINUTE drive. Seriously! We never even have to go to the north end of the Island unless we have to the hospital or Wal Mart. Neither of which we like to visit very much.
4. We have lots of choices for “getting around”: Of course we drive cars, but biking is also huge (we have 14+ miles of paved paths plus wide, hard sand beaches), and walking and running are especially nice under the moss-draped live oaks. Plus—South Beach and Harbour Town marinas offer up chartered cruises, as well as jet skis and parasailing. All great options.
3. Our beach is best. And that’s not just us saying it! The readers of Travel and Leisure, Coastal Living and Trip Advisor agree. The nearly 5 miles of beach in Sea Pines offers up soft sand and great dolphin watching along the Calibogue Sound from South Beach and around to the beginning of the Atlantic. Head north to the Sea Pines Beach Club and enjoy loads of hard packed sand at low tide—great for biking, running, ball throwing for dogs, and just plain strolling—plus soft sand to sit sink your toes into.
2. We can do it all, or do nothing at all. Do you like your vacation structured and busy or calm and restful? Either way, Sea Pines is the place. Hop up early for sunrise yoga on the beach, followed by a trail ride and tennis clinic, then shopping and cocktails before dinner, OR—wake up, read, snooze, read, lunch, then snooze some more. We say “ahhhhh” to both options.
We simply enjoy nature. If you have never been to Hilton Head Island, and Sea Pines in particular, you are in for a natural treat. There is simply nothing like a Sea Pines sunrise, unless it is watching the sun set over neighboring Daufuskie Island. Or observing the rookery of snowy egrets at the lagoon at Lawton Stables. Or watching alligators, turtles and great blue herons bask alongside each other on the banks of Sprunt Pond. The visionary founder of Sea Pines, Charles Fraser, meant for this to be a special place where people and nature coexist peacefully. And we do.
