THE BEST LOCATION! - STEPS TO THE BEACH - UPDATED HOUSE

Harbour Town House Rental Photos and Description

Easy family vacation -Well maintained house, 3 BR/3BA, & location, location, ..

If you want a relaxing vacation where your family easily comes and goes as they please, 8 Laughing Gull is the house for you. Everything is easy with this location. Just get on the beach walk and you're steps away from the best beach in Sea Pines. Great for a family with children (the house sleeps 6) and your family pooch is even welcome for an additional fee.

We constantly update our 3BR/3BA beach home and keep it well maintained. The house is extremely comfortable and filled with light. It has a one story layout that flows beautifully and allows for privacy. With the skylights, walls of glass and dining room open to the screen porch, the house melds with the landscape just as Sea Pines was designed to do.

Sea Pines is the most prestigious address on Hilton Head for good reason. There's the best of everything within the plantation. When not at home, you can walk to nearby Sea Pines Beach Club for meals, drinks, beach rentals, and entertainment. I highly recommend it for a 5 o'clock cocktail. Sea Pines has 3 world class golf courses, two excellent tennis teaching facilities (more than enough tennis courts), bike rentals (see our special offer), restaurants and shops. There are bike trails galore. Enjoy biking to Harbour Town and South Beach- all within Sea Pines. You can stop to watch the alligators in the lagoons or explore the historic ruins in Baynard Cove. The Sea Pines Wildlife Preserve is just around the corner with ruins and a rookery.

If you have an active family or just want to relax with your spouse or friends and want the best location, this is the house for you! Email us and we'll make the reservation process easy too. Happy vacation - that's what it's all about!

Beach people. We love to look for nature on the beach, play in the sand and water, and build castles.

Deborah Powell purchased this house in 1986

This is the best beach in the world!

Going to Hilton Head is like taking a trip to islands far away with all the benefits of being in the USA!

GOOD LOCATION AND LAYOUT BUT COULD BE CLEANER

  • 3 of 5
House had good layout and location within short walk to beach. Plenty of room for family of five. However, it needs a deep cleaning. Kitchen had spider webs on glass window right over table so we never ate there. There was mold in two showers. Furniture had dirt, dog hair and crumbs all over. Dishwasher had dirty dishes when we arrived. Sun room had dirt all over and all it needed was a sweeping, which was not done. Cleaning crew either needs to be changed or taught how to clean properly, Grill was also unusable due to rust and filthy soot which we discovered after we bought steaks and burgers which we couldn't cook; ended up cooking them on broiler. Had the house been cleaned properly, we would have liked it a lot better.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the heads up.  We have the house deep cleaned several times a year and for good or bad we have had a very busy rental schedule this summer.  We will have the house deep cleaned asap.

GREAT LOCATION, CONFORTABLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Hilton Head, and the superb location of 8 Laughing Gull was a large part of the positive stay. It was a short walk to the beach, and we could bicycles up to Harbortown (including to the Sea Pines Tennis Center) and South Beach using the bike paths without a problem. We used Palmetto Bikes as suggested by the owners of the property, and the bikes were delivered/picked up at the house as requested for a week.

This beach house was somewhat older, but the location and fully functioning air conditioning during our stay ( it was incredibly hot and humid that week) more than made up for it.

The owner was very helpful, and since she was out of town during the week we rented, her sister was available for any questions or queries. We had a lovely dinner at the Quarter Deck in Harbortown, had a tasty lunch at the Market Cafe at Coligny Plaza and the deli next to Fresh Market. Highly recommend Fresh Market on Hilton Parkway for groceries. Less than impressed by Roasted Fish and Cornbread Restaurant, despite what we'd read.

I would have liked more house/area information available ( for instance, one night neighbors were having a raucous party until 3:30 in the morning, and I had to look in the phone book for Hilton Head police phone number, then call another number on their after hours recording, who then told me Sea Pines has their own security and that I should call them first to address the problem.Would have been nice to have the number of Security as well as police handy.) A central information sheet available with these kinds of numbers, and perhaps a list of favorite restaurants, bike path maps, etc. would have been useful and appreciated. Plumbing (toilets) was a little slow, and we had to root around the kitchen drawers to find the extra front door keys but again, relatively minor quibbles. The neighborhood was generally quiet (aforementioned party seemed an exception) and felt very safe.

All in all we'd do it again!

GREAT LOCATION AND NICELY MAINTAINED - PET FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5
We have been going to HHI for many years, and this is the nicest property we have stayed in to date. It is not always easy to find a pet friendly property - however, this house is in a great location within minutes walk to the beach and is very well maintained. There is also a nice front and backyard for the dogs. We will definitely be returning next year!

Wonderful beach house that is so comfortable and love the easy and beautiful path to the beach. We saw lots of wildlife all over Sea Pines and it was so relaxing to sit out on the screened porch and listen to the frogs sing each night. We would love to come again! Thanks. Cook Family
