THE HOUSE: Our 3 bedroom 3 bath home is located in the Sea Pines Plantation of Hilton Head Island. Shell Ring Road is in Carolina Place, a small circle of approximately 30 homes, all neatly tucked amongst cypress trees adorned with spanish moss and plenty of evergreen vegetation. If you have never been to Hilton Head Island you will immediately be struck by the greenery and vegetation. We purchased this house in the fall of 2011 and completed it with all new furnishings, linens, and carpet. We have a back deck that overlooks a small back yard and beautiful lagoon filled with coastal birds, fish, turtles and the occasional alligator.

-Second master has Queen sized bed with jetted tub/shower in bath.
-Third bedroom has two extra long twin beds and has a bathroom adjacent to it.
-There are new flat screen TVs in each bedroom plus great room. WiFi available.
-Spacious kitchen with granite counters and breakfast area.

THINGS TO DO:Tucked into these natural surroundings are plenty of recreational opportunities, restaurants and shopping. The best beach access is just down the road at the Sea Pines Beach Club. Here you can enjoy miles of beach, plus shower facilities, and beach side restaurant. You can also visit the numerous other public beaches available on the island. Just steps from our house is our community pool complex with oversized pool, hot tub, sauna, and 4 tennis courts.Hilton Head Island is a golfers paradise with four courses right in Sea Pines, including the championship Harbor Town links. Play a different course everyday! We enjoy, biking on miles of trails that traverse the entire island. We have 2 bikes at the house but there are plenty of places to rent every type of bike for the whole family. The Sea Pines Forest Preserve can be accessed from our street for hiking, running, wildlife viewing, bird watching and fishing in the lakes. Laxton Farms is just down the road for horseback riding. Children love feeding all the animals in their petting farm. You will enjoy a visit to Harbour Town for lunch, tour of the lighthouse, shopping, and the marina where you can book a fishing trip or dinner cruise. You might hope for a rainy day so you can take a day trip to Savannah, just 40 minutes away, to shop, dine, and explore history. There is so much to do on Hilton Head Island yet everything is kept very natural looking and non -commercialized. This is what makes the island stand out from all other beach vacation destinations.

We live year round in Lenoir, NC and bought this house in the fall of 2011. We wanted a place that we could go to when we had a long weekend off. We looked at several places but this home immediately captured our heart.

Hilton Head is a very unique beach experience.Sure there is plenty of golf, shopping, restaurants, putt-putt, etc, but everything is so tucked away into the natural vegetation, you really feel the whole island experience. The town really goes to great lengths to maintain a very non-commercialized appearance on the island. The beaches along the island are very wide, even at high tide, with plenty of wide open space for the children to run and enjoy the ocean.
Every family loves a beautiful pool and just a few hundred yards from the house is a spectacular swimming complex with a main pool, hot tub, and sauna. This recreational area also offers 4 tennis courts. The nature preserve adjacent to our street is truly incredible. It has miles of trails and boardwalks for wildlife viewing, biking, running and fishing. We enjoy miles and miles of beautiful beaches. We have seen porpoises frollicking just offshore at the Sea pines Beach Club every day that we have been there. You will be amazed at the abundance of sand dollars beneath your toes as you walk through the waves. And you will be awed by the massive trees draped majestically with nature's spanish moss. Hilton head is truly a beautiful island.
