We are Americans who have lived in London since 1999. Our Hilton Head house is our residence in the States that we rent out when we are not there and to maintain the property. Hilton Head is our favorite place in the world, but we do get out and about every once in awhile.

Hilton Head is in our blood. Ted's grandmother came from Bluffton before leaving in 1911 and the relatives owned places like Rose Hill, Victoria Bluff, and Kirk's Bluff (along the May River) back when land was cheap, cheap (1800s - 1960s)

Vicky & Ted Leavitt purchased this house in 1998

Our house has been in the Leavitt family since Ted's father bought the property from Charles Fraser on a hunting trip in the early 1960s. We bought the house in 1998 and then did a complete renovation in order to bring the house up to date. The old beach houses were very open (you had to go outside to the downstairs bedroom!) and we converted it to its present 5-bedroom, 5-bath format, while maintaining the character from the early days of Sea Pines.

Having come to Hilton Head since 1962, our house reflects the dichotomy of a modern version of an original Sea Pines beach cottage with the simplicity of beach life. We personally feel the privacy of our setting is a unique benefit, but each person will have their own viewpoint.

Our group of 9 just returned from a week's stay at the Levitt house. I hesitate to rave because we want to keep this gem for ourselves! The house is homey, the location is perfect, and the owners are exceptionally accommodating. I have never rented a house that was so well stocked. You don't have to bring anything except a beach chair and umbrella! The housekeeping group, Reflections, does a superb job; the house was spotless.

One of our best family vacations

The Levitt home was perfect for our family get together. The home is so comfortable and accommodated our 3 families easily. It was such a treat to wake up and have coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean and sunrises. Between the pool and the ocean, much swimming was done by all! We cooked all of our meals in home since there was no better dinner with a view!! The owner was wonderful to work with! The home was in immaculate condition and well stocked in all areas. Would love the opportunity to stay here again and would most definitely recommend this property for anyone's next vacation. This home is a gem in a beautiful location! Thank you for this opportunity and for sharing your home with us.

Absolutely fantastic vacation!

Our family recently enjoyed a wonderful week at this delightful home on Hilton Head Island. The house itself was attractive, comfortable, cozy, and very well equipped. We love to cook and found the kitchen to have everything we could possibly need. We were also pleased to find basics such as laundry detergent and soaps and shampoos! Most enjoyable though were the incredible views from all around the house - it was a joy to sit on the covered porch in the mornings and evenings and gaze out at the stunning ocean view. The house was set back just enough from the beach to ensure privacy; the ocean was just a few short steps away from the back door. Every morning we all thoroughly enjoyed getting up, fixing our warm beverage of choice and strolling out to watch the beautiful sunrise over the ocean. The waves were perfect for body surfing, and the ocean was incredibly warm! And then of course there was the heated lovely pool which our children absolutely adored. Finally, the owners Ted and Vicky were so helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend this home and hope to return again very soon!

Fantastic Home/Location

Absolutely perfect place for a family vacation. Our gang included grandparents, our 2 daughters’ families with grandkids - ages 3 to 10. House was super in all respects – spacious, meticulously clean and everything you would need and then some. House has the charm of true beach home, but with all the modern amenities. Beach was fantastic and pool was great. Ran out of time in a week to do everything on our activity list. But thoroughly enjoyed bike riding, zodiac dolphin excursion, kayaking, pirate cruise (little corny, but good fun for the younger kids), sing – a- long with Greg Russell in Harbor Town, tennis at south Beach club (hour/day of court time comes with house – nice clay courts), time on the expansive and clean beach and cooling off in the pool. Got talked out of parasailing, but maybe next time.

Bottom line: Wonderful spot for a family get together. Highly recommended and we plan on retuning

Great Week with the Family

What a great place! This was our first trip to Hilton Head and we loved staying in your home. The walk out to the beach is short and sweet, and the pool was really nice. We loved how the beach seemed different each day-tons of beautiful wildlife including dolphins to be seen right off the back porch. We loved the Sea Pines forest preserve and riding our rented bikes on the beach and all over!
The house had everything we could want. We grilled lunch and ate at the table by the pool. I felt like your home had more privacy than the newer homes along the same stretch of beach.
Thanks for everything!
