This was the second time we stayed at Sea Pines - the first was when our son graduated from High School and the second was Christmas 2015. Sea Pines is such a perfect home for a group - we had eight of us for Christmas, stayed 3 nights, and there were plenty of beds, bathrooms, etc. for all of us. The kitchen is spacious, well equipped and I didn't even need to bring out the extra utensils I brought "just in case". The "formal" dining room was such a nice plus for our Shrimp Gumbo Christmas Eve dinner and the family room/kitchen was perfect for coffee and breakfast. The home is very private and has nice beach access a short distance from the dunes. We had a wonderful time and everyone in our group, including the two dogs, just love Sea Pines!
