Why The Owner chose Sea Pines

This home has been a family vacation home for 30 years and 2 generations.

What makes this house unique

Sea Pines is a remarkably secluded, natural resort and the location within Sea Pines is unbeatable. A bike ride from South Beach and Harbour Town yet still quiet and private even during the bustle of peak seasons.

Great house, wonderful location, easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two young Grandchildren. The entire family enjoyed the house. The beach is an easy walk from the house.

Where do you live?

Location was awesome, house was fully stocked but could have been cleaner.

  • 3 of 5

The location of this house was amazing, right off the boardwalk and the size of the house was perfect for our family of five! This home also is fully stocked so it comes with almost anything and everything you might need. The kitchen and main den were very well decorated. The only downside we found was that this home could have been much cleaner and the couch seating in the den was very uncomfortable from very worn out couch cushions. The rugs were stained in the bedrooms, showers were stained, the air vents were black from dirt and mold and the outdoor patio cushions on the screened porch were completely mildewed. Other then that, this is a great house and you cannot beat the location.

Owner's Response: Normally we would prefer to hear immediately if there are issues as housekeeping is responsive, reliable and happy to come by if needed. However we have shared the specific feedback with them as well to be sure they address the details. The house is cleaned weekly and additionally professionally steam cleaned multiple times per year. Anything not cleanable and that is stained generally gets removed & replaced. Unfortunately we do get occasional renters who do not treat the house as we would and we don't get that information back as quickly as we like. It should be clear in the previous reviews others have not had quite the same experience. Note (as stated in the listing description), bathrooms are not yet renovated - they are cleaned, bleached, tilex'd, etc. thoroughly weekly, but it's fair to say they are worn from being located 300 yards from the beach and salt air, hard water, and sand. However, they should not be dirty under normal circumstances. As for the 2nd couch/seating arrangement, it's relatively new (like nearly all of the furniture, beds, carpets, etc.), but could not agree more (note this is one of two couches in the same room together). It's something we just have not been able to replace in summer peak season yet, but it will be replaced asap given the feedback.. UPDATE- the couch metioned has been replaced with a new one and the other recovered as well.

Winter getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our two weeks at 5 Black Skimmer Road was an enjoyable vacation. The home was like staying at a cottage. We enjoyed our morning walks on the beach and cycling on the wonderful trails. Harbor Town and South Beach became our cycling stops for a coffee and muffin at the Sea Pines bakery or a cold drink on the dock at The Salty Dog.

Although we had a few maintenance issues that need taken care of (kitchen sink tap loose, one couch is slopping and a running toilet in the master bath) we enjoyed the location and the comfort of this home. Thank you for sharing your home.

Hope to book this home again next year.

Cozy Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at 5 black Skimmer! It was easy to book and Charles was quick to respond to our questions. We loved the beautifully renovated kitchen/living space. There was a huge selection of books and videos. The downstairs bedroom/bath were perfect for our daughter and son in law with their 6 month old. It gave them privacy and room to chill. The downstairs screened porch was wonderful and having the refrigerator down there was awesome for storing beverages. There were several beach chairs that we used. While the upstairs bedrooms/baths are not renovated they were still very nice and the master bed was very comfortable. The close proximity to the beach is the best feature of this home! Less than a two minute leisurely walk. You are literally right on the beach path. We utilized the outdoor shower daily. My only thought was it would be nice to have a small table and chairs for dining inside. It was way too hot to eat on the screened porch in July. We would love to return to this lovely home.

Look forward to this the entire year!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting for the past 5 years and look forward to this the entire year. House is kid friendly, easy to walk to the beach and a great value. Location is perfect in a quiet street but close enough to salty dog and beach club for an easy parents night out. Landlord is easy to work with and very accommodating. I can't wait to rent again next year!
