I rented this property to accomodate out-of-town family members who came to Hilton Head for a surprise party I'd arranged to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Jim was an absolute joy to work with, answering my numerous questions with grace and good humor, and expressing curiosity about how I was going to pull off the surprise. Although the photos here with the listing are lovely, they cannot do justice to the beauty and spaciousness of the house. My husband and I live in Sea Pines and we spent many delightful hours with our family there - basically, all we did at home was sleep! There is a HUGE pantry that accomodated everything we needed to feed nine adults, and the dining table had room for us all! I loved the open aspect of the first floor: the living room, dining room, and kitchen flow together in one inviting space, with additional seating at the breakfast bar and a smaller table.
The living room is a large, warm, welcoming area where we all sat and watched my husband open his gifts from the family (after we returned from the surprise party/dinner in Harbour Town) and it looks beautiful in all the photos we took to remember the event.
Our three sons, my husband's brother, and their wives and/or girlfriends had comfortable bedrooms, each with its own bath.
And the pool area, with a lovely view of the lagoon and golf course just beyond, was so tempting; I wanted to stretch out on a chaise (or in the hammock) and just spend a lazy afternoon reading!
The house is an easy walk to the wonders of the shops and restaurants of Harbour Town, the tennis courts, and our fabulous Harbour Town Golf Links - and it would be VERY convenient for the fun of Heritage week.
This was a dream come true for me - to have our family all gathered together, under one roof, to celebrate such a joyous occasion. I'd rent this property again in a heartbeat - hopefully over Christmas, with a towering tree in the soaring living room, our loved ones gathered all around us once again!
