About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 'home away from home' is located at the southern tip of Hilton Head Island, in a quiet neighborhood of Sea Pines Plantation. Sea Pines is the Island's largest resort and is skirted by 5 miles of beautiful beaches and contains acres of forest preserves and miles of bike trails. Sea Pines hosts the PGA Tour's Heritage of Golf tournament every year in April.

Our home is conveniently located for that perfect vacation get-away. A short bike ride (one mile) takes you to Harbour Town Golf Links, the Harbour Town Yacht Club, or Sea Pines beaches (two miles). This allows visitors to be near it all yet be able to retreat back to a quiet private neighborhood home to relax.

The home offers a panoramic lagoon view with deck access from the master bedroom, great room, and kitchen. It is tastefully decorated with tradtional furnishings. There is a private community swimming pool and tennis courts available for use (located only a 2 minute walk away!).

We take great pride in updating our home and adding new amenities each year for our guests enjoyment. There is nothing worse than renting a vacation home and being disappointed. We use VRBO ourselves when we vacation so we truly understand the importance of making a good impression and exceeding expectations.

Our goal is to make sure you enjoy our home as much as we do!

About John Gugle

We are the Gugle family from Waxhaw, North Carolina, which is located close to Charlotte. My wife and I have four children, ages ranging from 16 to 12 years old and they all love Hilton Head!

John Gugle purchased this house in 1999

Why John Gugle chose Sea Pines

We have been big fans of Hilton Head for many years. We were married in Hilton Head in 1994. My wife's parents live year round in Hilton Head. We bought our home in 1999 because we wanted a vacation property located near family. When we first saw our home, we absolutely fell in love with the breathtaking water view from the back deck and how bright and airy it is inside. The tranquility of the scenery captured us at first and with each passing season we gain a greater appreciation for the natural setting and wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Our home is an oasis of natural beauty and peacefulness in an otherwise busy community (Sea Pines). We like the fact that you can get away from the crowds and have your own slice of peace and quiet even when it is crowded in the summer. We have a private community pool and tennis courts a short distance from our home. We can walk (20 min) to the Harbor Town Lighthouse and the marina. We have shopping and restaurants located within one mile. Our home gives us and our guests a place to get away from it all and yet be close enough to everything you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been renting this house for the past few winters & were somewhat surprised to read the last review. The extensive hurricane damage a few months ago made skilled contractors & repairmen very difficult to engage but all the problems mentioned have been corrected. Everything works & works well & not a single deficiency exists to detract from the beauty of the house & its location. We're coming back next year!

The property was everything we expected. We had three couples so all of us had our own space .

  • 5 of 5

The area and the house was perfect ,the weather was not good enough for us to enjoy a lot of outdoor activities but there was plenty to do if the weather was better. I would highly recommend the property and if I was ever in the area again I would stay there. This was our first experience with this type of rental and all of us would do it again.

Nice neighborhood - beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in HHI over Thanksgiving. Home is spacious and lots of natural light. It’s in a very quiet and natural setting yet close to everything. There is a wooded trail to Harbortown through the harbortown treehouses that you can bike through just off of Calibogue Cay Rd. or you can just take the regular bike trail there or to the beach. We just learned the owners bought the house next door and will be listing it on VRBO this spring after complete renovation overhaul. Would be a great solution for 2 families traveling together.

Cozy and Comfortable place to Stay in Hilton Head!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in Hilton Head. The accommodations were exactly what we were looking for in terms of a house to rent. We especially enjoyed having the bikes to use as well as the beach chairs and toys to bring to the beach. A special treat was a visit from the local alligator!! We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

This property was beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable for our extended family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in mid- August. The house was very well equipped- all the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen provided all we needed to feel right at home. The deck overlooking the water was large and provided lovely, calming views, as did the big great room windows. We enjoyed the neighborhood pool and loved being just minutes from Harbor Town and the beach club. We would absolutely stay again!

Great Place

We truly enjoyed our week at this property. This house was very conducive for our family. We especially like the alligator visit when we were grilling or out on the deck.

Sunsets, water front, pictures galore!

  • 5 of 5

Shortly after our arrival we were greeted by a family member to make sure we were comfortable and all was in order. We felt right at home immediately in this

spacious home for our family of 6 adults and 2 year old granddaughter. Each couple had their own bedroom and private bath. This large welcoming home never seemed crowded. The layout was wonderful centering around a large great room. We walked to the pool, rode bikes that the owners left for our use and enjoyed the closeness to the beach and Harbor Town. The location of this lovely home brought a bonus each evening of incredible sunsets! We had the perfect family vacation and left Hilton Head Island with great memories!
