Heated pool, warmth and charm on the beach!! Newly rennovated and expanded kitchen (pics by end of Feb)! From the moment you walk in the house to be greeted by a famous and fun Walter Palmer pelican sculpture, the finishing touches on this charismatic 1964 house come from Savannah brick, aged heart pine floors, and knobby cypress and pecky-pine walls, reclaimed from a historic Savannah parish house. The house is buffered from the beach by a 20x50 yard, beautifully landscaped open-space, and the front side of the house is bordered by two lagoons;, bringing the house to feel like a private, peaceful sanctuary! This timeless, beautifully designed home is featured in the first few pages of the book 'Three Decades of Hilton Head Architecture'.
The house has been meticulously maintained and improved over the years by a family member/property manager, who lives two miles away and is on call 24/7 to guarantee your satisfaction and answer any questions.
As a family, we've really enjoyed visiting and owning a piece of Hilton Head since 1965!
Greg Schenkel purchased this house in 1976
We've rooted into HH and Sea Pines since 1965!
This was the second year that my family stayed at this house and we were not disappointed either year. This house is perfect for families or large groups. Each bed room has its own private bathroom (all of which have been updated and are super nice)! The children in our group were pleased to see the addition of a few more TV's in the house. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you need from large dishes, blenders, to spices and etc. The pool is perfect location and the deck and hammock are so wonderful and peaceful to take an afternoon nap in. The house even has extra beach toys, kayaks, boogie boards and beach towels in case you forgot to pack your own. Greg the property manager is super nice and very helpful!
The only thing the teenage girls requested be added to the house is locking doors on the bedrooms.
This house was exactly what we were looking for! We are extremely thankful to Greg for sharing his charming home. We wanted a house that was owner/managed. We have found these houses to be quite a bit better in our experience.
This is what we loved:
Each of the 5 bedrooms had it's own bathroom.
The beach was large and beautiful! The kids loved the pool and the decks as well.
The location was perfect for biking. The bike trails are well done in Sea Pines.
The kitchen is well stocked and the family room was perfect to get everyone together talk, play games, watch a movie. We loved the layout of the house.
I agree with all of the reviews below. I was thankful to read them when I was looking for a house, then to agree with them once I arrived at the house.
I would absolutely recommend this house to my friends and return!
This home offers a fabulous setting for large family vacation. Greg was hospitable and personable. Stayed in contact with us to insure all was going well without being a pest. The place was a perfect location oceanside and close to everything. Not fancy-smancy, but lots of character and clean. The home is stocked with everything from beach toys to fabric softener. You name it...they got it, no expense spared. Our dog loved it! Very reasonably priced in the off season for the Gold Coast. Live like a millionaire. Will return in the fall.
We couldn't think of a better place to spend a vacation. The house is lovely, plenty of room, everything is clean and comfortable, and the best views around. Everything you need and extras are included in this beautiful home. We sat on the deck each morning having our breakfast and listen to the waves crashing on shore. There was always a wonderful breeze and great trees to keep it cool. The hammock on the lower deck, by the water, was my favorite stop to read my book or watch the people walking on the beach. I don't think you could find a better place to stay. All are needs were met and we would recommend this home to anyone wanting a great vacation spot. We are can't wait to spend another vacation at this lovely property.
Excellent house with lots of room and beautiful beach. Great for families and friends...a must stay kind of place!
My family stayed at this beach house for a week in june of 08 and we had the best time. It is such a perfect spot for lots of people to be comfortable and so kid friendly. The beach is right out the door so everyone can be on their own time frame..and come and go from the beach as you wish.Its a lovley home..we want to go back every year..thank you jill
Beach Lagoon offers a uniquely private beach, since only 2 rows of homes feed into the 3/4 mile long beach!
