Guestbook comments from the owner
"I wanted to write you and tell you how much we loved your home. We had a simply amazing time. The weather was great. I adore the authenticity of the house and the location is superb. Is it a Sea Pine original? We celebrated my daughter's second birthday and I couldn't keep my son off the beach! We will definitely be back. Thank you for the memories and I wish you well." (N.B., in answer to the question, our place was the 65th home built in Sea Pines. It was totally renovated in 1998 (and updated since then) to keep it current while we think retaining its original Low Country character).

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 FAVORITE BEACH VACATION DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
The house is most comfortable and attractively decorated. The view to the beach and ocean is lovely. There is a very nice private wooden boardwalk which allows quick access to the beach. Our family enjoyed the option of swimming in the pool when time to leave the beach. There is a large propane grill on a nice outdoor patio which we took advantage of using. We would certainly recommend this house to our friends and family.

GREAT PROPERTY FOR FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 6 adults and four kids had a wonderful trip here. The location is great with easy cycling to Harbortown and South Beach. We split our time between the pool and the beach. The management company was responsive to concerns. The reason it gets four instead of 5 stars is the property is dated. To be clear everything functions just fine and it's roomy. It is exactly as described in the listing, no surprises. We would rent it again.

AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We loved the privacy of the cul de sac and the beautiful ocean views. My parents commented on the tropical hammock that surrounded us constantly! Kids and adults loved the pool and the pool toys came in handy. Smiles all around. We were looking for a beach cottage and this one was a good size without losing the cottage feel. Kitchen was updated, but had few issues with ice maker and faucet water not staying on do to the sensor on it. Reflections management came right over with ice trays and we bought some ice. No biggie! Great place to stay. Lots of wild life encounters. Ted was easy to work with through email and renting arrangement was a breeze. Although an older cottage (one of the originals), so it could use some TLC in other areas besides the kitchen, our family would highly recommend this vacation rental.

ALMOST HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!
