This is our second stay at 11 Black Tern. House is immaculate with everything you may need for your stay....detergents, paper products, spices, two coffee pots (one a Keurig), and all the dishes, pots, pans one could ask for. The pool is delightful, though I must admit I was always looking over my shoulder into the marsh for signs of an alligator. We've seen very few fenced yards on HHI, even around swimming pools, so there must not be a regulation like we have in Maryland. Kept our little dog on a short leash. So happy they permit dogs! The beds are very comfortable and we're picky about that. Pool and yard maintenance people come every week and do a good job. Our only issue, and this is not the fault of BSSR but the builders of the house, is that lighting in the great room, where we spent most of our time, is not conducive to reading. We tried every combination and permutation of lights but were not very successful. Having built a couple of homes I know that this is one of the most difficult things to get right. So if you spend a lot of time reading, bring your own lamp or perhaps the lamps could use higher wattage bulbs? No reason to downgrade the listing!

As always Beverly and Darleen exceeded our expectations on service delivery, collaboration and house cleanliness! Our month long stay was perfect! Considering that this is the third year we've rented for a month...we can say that the Serral team truly delivers on their promises and often goes well beyond even their own impeccable high standards.
Looking forward to year #4 rental!

The beauty and serenity of this location cannot be overstated. It is a delight for birdwatchers and nature lovers. The natural beauty of the marsh and your own pool are truly at your doorstep. Other activities are a short bike ride away. The house is stocked with everything needed and well-maintained. It was easily child-proofed for our one year old grandson. It is very easy to live in. We had a great week in a great property!
- Christy and Edward D. from Savannah, Posted: 08/05/2019
Always our favorite time of year when we head to HHISC. We never go wrong with a Best Nest property from Beverly Serrel. The staff is always just a phone call away should we need anything.
- Terry and Roger M. from Greenville, Posted: 11/19/2021
Great house on Marsh. Easy access to beach and Salty Dog. Everything you need for cooking.

Excellent home - first class accommodations and decor. Home was beautifully equipped, location was full of wildlife to watch, and area was quiet and relaxing. Easy walk to beautiful and wide beach. It was excellent and Beverly and her staff were there to answer every need. Thank you so much !!

We loved the house and the location! The house was spotless and was perfect for what we needed. Any questions we had were answered promptly and the written guide in the house directed us to many wonderful places on Hilton Head Island. We had a wonderful week and would love to return there in the future.

As always, Beverly's team was very responsive throughout our rental experience. The house was very clean and well decorated, as we've come to expect with her rentals. Great location and great home - we'll come again!

As always, renting through Beverly Serral means a great stay from start to end. We enjoyed out trip tremendously. The home was just lovely and beautifully appointed. We loved the location with such close walking distance to the beach. Anyone wishing for a view of nature with love 11 Black Tern.
- Patricia and Matt F. from Alpharetta, Posted: 05/01/2017
Great property. Kids loved the heated pool. Excellent stay!
- Victor and Lauren R. from Roswell, Posted: 04/11/2022
This is a wonderful house in a great location with great access to the beach and very close to the Salty Dog. The beds are so comfortable and all the furnishings were perfect. We loved how well the kitchen was stocked with dishes, wine glasses... This house also has all the equipment you need for the beach. We left a big pop up tent for the beach. We can't say enough how great this rental property was.
- Michelle and Kevin M. from Glen Ellyn, Posted: 07/24/2017
11 Black Tern was the wonderful vacation experience that we remembered. You will never feel so graciously welcomed as when you enjoy a Beverly Serral BestNest vacation, and this house is a gem. The private pool and the seclusion were a welcome respite in these crazy times. And the home is a visual delight everywhere you turn. We rented this home years ago just after it went on the market as a rental and it has done nothing but get better with age. And BESTNEST took every possible precaution for our safety.
- Susan S. from Washington, Posted: 08/03/2020
We loved this home for the 6 of us! When we say it was a very short walk to the beach we mean it. It was the most well stocked home we have rented in 11 years and every item in the home was new, newer and immaculate! We will be focusing on Beverly's properties going forward.

Great location, nicely renovated with a delightful pool and views. Beach a 5 min bike ride. Very well equipped with everything you need for a great time.

We really enjoyed this house! We were there with our son, his fiancé and our daughter. Everyone thought the house was beautiful and the backyard being on the marsh was spectacular. The pool is a great size and it was very private and peaceful. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. Everything was perfect!
- Anonymous from Atlanta, Posted: 06/04/2021
This home was absolutely fantastic! The house was even better and felt much bigger than the pictures looked online. It was in perfect condition (and I mean perfect)! I have never stayed at a rental property that was so well stocked. Zero issues during our entire stay. Beds were super comfortable. The pool area was sunny all day long for great tanning and hanging out in the pool. The backyard was beautiful and private. Sea Pines area is very nice and convenient to everything but this neighborhood especially was in a great location. This home had private beach access ( no crowds) which was a quick 10 minute walk / 5 minutes on our bikes. The bike paths were right down the street and it was a great daily family activity. The house far exceeded our expectations and honestly was a perfect 10 out of 10. Overall fabulous vacation!

Excellent experience and floor plan for elderly with walkers. Home was very clean and well stocked. Thank you for the best vacation that was stress free with multigenerational family.
- Gina and Michael K. from Raleigh, Posted: 07/06/2020
This was our first stay at 11 Black Tern though we have stayed at other Beverly Serral signature properties. This is a great property! Everything was spotless and the home finishes are outstanding. Highly recommend this property and this company. They are the best!
- Anonymous from Eagle, Posted: 05/07/2018
Multiple repeat renter from Beverly - Highly recommend!
- Michael & Adrienne M. from Massillon, Posted: 12/03/2020
11 Black Tern is an excellent home with beautiful views and wonderful deck and pool area. Home is clean, refreshed and well maintained. Easy walk ro bike ride to the beach and the South Marina shops.
- Anonymous from Northfield, Posted: 03/13/2022
Awesome! Beverly knows how to make the rental experience great. Her houses are always clean, well maintained and organized. Would only use her...She is very hands on. Makes everything wonderful.
- Tara P. from BOYNTON BEACH, Posted: 06/02/2015
We love our stays at Black Tern and the amazing marsh views. Everything was exactly as was expected, with anything you need (including beach towels, snacks, and extra supplies) ready in the home. It’s easy & beautiful. We will be back soon!
- Lora B. from Iron Station, Posted: 05/22/2022
We loved the marsh views, and especially the pool at this property! Nice and open floorpan, and modern furnishings. Loved the kitchen and breakfast bar setup. Quiet neighborhood, and easy access to the bike trails.
- Candice L. from Raleigh, Posted: 08/14/2017
This property was perfect in every way! Location is beautiful, pool is so refreshing after a hike or bike ride, and the decor is simple, elegant, and exactly the way we would decorate. Beds are very comfortable. Kitchen was better equipped than my own kitchen and the gas grill is a very good Weber. They are not just kidding about "clean", and I thought I was obsessive about cleanliness! As an extra bonus we met some of the neighbors and they couldn't have been more welcoming or informative. We look forward to staying here again, though they book a year out. Our little poodle loved the house and behaved better than he does at home so we will bring him again. So happy to have pets welcomed. If you can find a window of opportunity to rent this gem, do so.....just not when I want it! Our only suggestion is that BSSR provide an umbrella; we forgot ours and got soaked one evening.
- Barbara R. from Annapolis, Posted: 05/29/2017
Vacation was wonderful. Accommodations were outstanding. Beds very comfortable. Outside was always inviting.
- Bill and Bobbie C. from Wilmington, Posted: 11/28/2016
My husband and I enjoyed living in this house for an extended stay and found it to be comfortable overall, thoughtfully furnished, and CLEAN as promised. There kitchen was very well stocked for eating-in and the bathrooms were nicely appointed and spotless. The Serral team delivered on their commitment in every way and as a result...we booked our stay for next year already!
Thank you to all who made our stay so excellent!
- Anonymous from Reston, Posted: 11/17/2014
This home was perfect for our family! It was in a great location near the beach, and had a beautiful view out of the back of a marsh. The pool was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable and the home was immaculate! The rental agent, Beverly Sorrel, was the best and most efficient agent we have ever worked with! I would highly recommend this home!
- Anonymous from Knoxville, Posted: 04/06/2020
Very nice rental home. Great location. This rental is very clean and everything you need is supplied. Great beaches. I would highly recommend this home!
- Anonymous from Bristol, Posted: 09/29/2015
Terrific stay to clear our minds and be outside enjoying beautiful low country for a while. The home was tastefully updated, contemporary beach vibe, with everything you need. Terrific location just a couple of blocks from the beach, but tranquil setting overlooking the salt marsh.
- Anonymous from Northfield, Posted: 05/25/2020
We keep returning to Black Tern because of the fabulous view on the backside. The birds in the deer in the marsh are wonderful.
- Anonymous from Eau Claire, Posted: 03/29/2018
11 Black Tern Drive was a beautiful updated vacation home! The new deck and views out back were awesome! We stayed for a week with another couple and would love to return. The furnishings were so pretty and everything was quite clean and organized. The location couldn't have been better. The house is on a quiet street but close to the Salty Dog and beach area. Biking from this house to most anywhere in Sea Pines is doable. Beverly and Darlene were so easy to work with and help to make our stay so enjoyable. The landscaping out front could use a little TLC, but everything else was perfect!

My family and I checked into a timeshare that had a variety of issues. We needed a quick fix and needed to find a new place to stay for a week on a Saturday night.
After looking at a variety of properties, we messaged the owners/management companies. Understandably with it being a Saturday night, only a couple responded.
Beverly Serral's staff not only responded, but they did so at 7 pm on a Saturday night. They sent over specific options matching our needs, and they gave us two legitimately wonderful choices.
When we checked in at 10 pm---after multiple communications to be able to see the places on a Saturday night---we were amazed by the quality of the home and the decor. Furthermore, we were beyond impressed by the way the staff has everything labeled at the house for guests ranging from light switches letting you know what turns on what to the remote controls giving you access to not only the basics but Netflix and on-demand options.
This was 100% first class with regard to the home and the customer service.

We love Beverly Serral properties! This is our second year in a row choosing Beverly Serral houses. Our first choice in HHI will always be in one of her properties -- exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated,a fully stocked kitchen, a private backyard and a short walk to the beach make vacationing here such a great experience. We will definitely be back next year and will without a doubt choose Beverly Serral properties.
- Chris and Carey T. from Avon, Posted: 07/25/2016
Such a great place to stay. Love this house and amenities and even more the great people at the office who take care of all our needs. Counting the days till we return in September.
- Terry and Roger M. from Greenville, Posted: 06/20/2016
This was one of the most beautiful rentals we have ever stayed at. Immaculate and close to the beach. Owners kept the housecwell stocked with kitchen supplies and extra pillows, towels and blankets. Great area with quiet yard. Very close to the beach. We would love to go back year after year.
- Deana D. from Charlotte, Posted: 08/29/2016
Vacationing in one of Beverly’s homes is always wonderful. We have become repeat customers since finding her in 2019. A consistently comfortable, ultra-clean home with all that you would need at your fingertips. Beverly makes your experience personal and warm. We plan on continuing to come back as long as they will have us.
- Lora B. from Iron Station, Posted: 08/03/2021
Peace and privacy at sea pines

NO complaints at all. Would definitely stay again. View was magnificent.

Loved watching the deer and birds
Saltwater pool was huge
- Jacqueline and Charles S. from Schwenksville, Posted: 07/03/2017
Wow, what a top notch experience, thank you Beverly for ensuring every detail was provided for. You have done a phenomenal job of outfitting the house both beautifully and practically. We had stayed in many resorts and your property is world class. Thank you for making our stay such an enjoyable one!
- Cathy and Steve K. from Marietta, Posted: 01/21/2015
Tried a new Signature location and as always they make our stay so comfortable. What a treat to be on the edge of the marsh! Lots of birds with the best being the eagles nest that we kept an eye on from the deck on the other side of the marsh. We will be looking forward to our return in the spring! Thank you for all the special touches you do!
- Terry and Roger M. from Greenville, Posted: 10/07/2015
Enjoyed the week but for some frequent showers. Loved the pool and beach chairs provided. Perfect location!
- Chip J. from Charlotte, Posted: 10/03/2020
This was our 3rd winter at Black Tern. We love the sunlight that pours in from the rear of the house and the kitchen windows as well. The marsh view from the deck and rear windows is awesome. We love watching the flocks iof Ibis, as well as the egrets, and occasional osprey and the deer wander back and forth thruogh the marsh regularly. We will be back next year!!
- Anonymous from Eau Claire, Posted: 03/17/2017
Our return visit to this property once again was perfection! Our contact, Darlene was incredibly responsive and accommodating. Darlene is just too-notched as is the entire Beverly Serral team.
The house is very comfortable and stocked with everything to make our stay and our "settling -in" very easy.
- Anonymous from Reston, Posted: 11/02/2015
This was a family trip for 3 couples and our rented house at 11 Black Tern served us wonderfully. It was spacious, well equipped and newly remodeled. It had a large deck with a fabulous view of the marsh and a pool that we would have used if the weather had been warmer. Overall we could not have been happier!
- Doug G. from Lenexa, Posted: 11/13/2017
As always we were once again satisfied with our stay on Hilton Head. Beverly Serrel's service makes us feel like we are not just another renter. They take care of all needs should any come up. The office staff couldn't be more attentive. Thanks again for making our visit so comfortable. We never hesitate to recommend you to our friends. And Black Tern's view of the marsh gives us many hours of pleasure watching all the activity on it.
- Terry and Roger M. from Greenville, Posted: 10/03/2016
This rental surpassed our expectations. Everything was clean and it was equipped with everything you could need other than your clothes and some groceries. The best nest team were very helpful and quick to answer questions. We were glad to bring our dog and the kids loved the pool. Thanks for a great stay.
- Anonymous from Greensboro, Posted: 05/15/2022
This home on Black Tern was impeccably clean and well decorated. Open floor plan was great . Wonderful pool with marsh view in the background . Would definitely book again .

We love Beverly Serral Homes. This was our third winter with Beverly and we can't imagine renting from anyone else. Her homes are exceptionally clean and updated. We appreciate the excellent bedding and towels, the well supplied kitchen dishes and cooking equipment, beach towels, and well furnished decks. Also her office staff is extremely courteous and prompt to respond to our concerns. We will be back next January!
- Anonymous from Eau Claire, Posted: 04/19/2015
Everything about our stay at 11 Black Tern was made easy by Beverly and her team. The house was wonderful and so clean. The setting was similar to a resort spa with the beautiful marsh views over the pool. Most importantly, Beverly and her team were quick to communicate and connect during a tumultuous time. We wish we could have stayed !
- Lora B. from Iron Station, Posted: 03/29/2020
This was truly an amazing location for our family vacation. We have been coming to HH since our kids were little and your house was so amazing and you provided all of the comforts of home. The kitchen was stocked better than I could have imagined and all of the little personal details from the beach towels, and pool toys/floats to the soap and laundry detergent, and then the very nice welcome basket with food and a card. Truly one of the best houses I have stayed in. The neighbors were great too!! Love everything about the house and the experience.
