About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 w/sleeper sofa, community pool, short walk to beach

Leeward Breezes is a bright, totally renovated home with beach decor and amenities to enjoy beach-oriented living. An enclosed porch allows you to enjoy the forest setting. The one-bedroom,sofa bed, and full-size kitchen accommodate up to four people.

Leeward Breezes is located in Night Heron, located just inside the Sea Pines Ocean Gate. It is located just a 5 minute walk from a very uncrowded part of the Sea Pines beach . The Night Heron homes are free-standing, nestled in saw palmettos, palms, live oaks draped with Spanish moss, tall long-needle pines, and surrounded by lagoons.

Night Heron includes a community pool and is also located near one of the entrances to the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. Sea Pines has 15 miles of wonderful walking and biking trails, as well as access to the famous Harbortown, South Beach, and golf amenities. The home is close to many restaurants and attractions both in Sea Pines and nearby Coligny Plaza. Leeward Breezes rents at a reasonable rate.

One of the jewels on Hilton Head Island: Sea Pines is a private, secure, gated community on Hilton Head Island. There is public access golf , and, of course, the shops, restaurants, and water activities at Harbortown and South Beach. There are 15 miles of paved biking and walking trails just within Sea Pines, along with over 100 miles of trails on Hilton Head Island, not to mention biking on the packed sand beaches.

Night Heron is located just inside the Ocean Gate entrance to Sea Pines. It is located just a short walk from the ocean (0.2 miles) and from the Sea Pines Forest Preserve(0.25miles) . The Night Heron beach area is located half a mile from any hotel or timeshares in either direction, providing some of the least crowded beach space on Hilton Head.

But you are just down the road from Coligny Plaza and near shopping and restaurants. Leeward Breezes is a free-standing house in Night Heron in the midst of tall trees like southern pines, live oaks, hickories, and sabal palms, as well as saw palmettos. The community is surrounded by lagoons. Sea Pines is home to deer and water birds like herons, ducks, and egrets.

Night Heron, the community: Night Heron's homes are nestled among the natural vegetation. Leeward Breezes has a large enclosed porch and large windows for enjoying the natural beauty around you. There is a community pool in Night Heron which is open to guests during the long summer and fall. There are 15 miles of bike and walking trails awaiting you as soon as you descend the steps from the porch at Leeward Breezes. Some of those trails lead you down a private walkway to the ocean, just 0.2 miles away. Included beach give you access to relaxing hours listening to the waves or active time swimming, surfing, or playing beach games. A skim board and two boogie boards are also available for your use.

Built in a natural forested setting, Night Heron is quiet and private even though it is located very close to just about everything you may want to do or see during your stay on Hilton Head Island. Coligny Plaza, Harbortown, and South Beach are all within easy reach

Don't miss the great weather!: While most people come to Hilton Head in the summer, there are those who prefer to come in the off seasons. In the winter, it rarely goes down to freezing and is light to medium jacket weather most days. Even in winter, there are days when you may be comfortable in a shirt without a jacket. In the spring and fall the weather is moderate and days are often in the 60s and 70s.

Even though it is less attractive to swim in some of the off seasons, the beach is still great for walking and relaxing. The entire island is less crowded and there is still lots to do most of the year.

In the off seasons, some people may come for several weeks to several months, and the lower tourist activity on Hilton Head Island also means more attractive rates for rentals. Come on down and give it a try!

Access to the Beach on Hilton Head Island

If you want a beach-oriented vacation, please be aware that though all accommodations on Hilton Head Island have beach access available, for some locations you will have to drive to the beach. Hilton Head Island is shaped like a foot. More than 12 miles of beaches are on the 'sole' of Hilton Head Island. Most of the top of the 'foot' is marshland and beach is limited. Both areas are beautiful and hold their own charm. Beautiful sunrises occur on the beach or eastern part of the island and extraordinary sunsets can be seen on the western or top of the foot of Hilton Head Island.

Uncrowded beach

Within Sea Pines, Leeward Breezes is just a short walk down a concrete path to a very uncrowded part of the beach. The beaches on Hilton Head are public, but direct access to our closest beach area is a private path within the gated community of Sea Pines. As the pictures on our listing show, there is not much crowding there. Chairs are provided for use on the beach. Boogie boards and a skim board are also provided.

If you want to be in a more crowded beach, you can walk or drive to Sea Pines Resort beach (south) or drive to Coligny Plaza (north). See the listing pictures to see what the beach areas near us look like. You get to choose. And none of the choices are very far away.

If you are not interested in the beach, there is a community pool in the Night Heron neighborhood in which Leeward Breezes is located. A picture of the pool is included in the listing pictures. The community pool is only for Night Heron. It is open May 1 to at least September 30.

Pet Friendly

Leeward Breezes allows pets. We rely on responsible pet owners to keep this policy in place. We try to keep our property so it acceptable to both pet owners and non pet owners. The tile floors are for the convenience of pets, pet owners, and even non-pet owners because they allow for easy cleanup of sand and silt from beach activities.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach between 10 AM and 5 PM from Memorial Day to September 30. This is Hilton Head's 'high season.' During the off season, well-controlled and well-behaved dogs are allowed on the beach anytime. During the entire year, dogs must be walked on a leash within Sea Pines streets and trails and owners must pick up after their pets. You can use official doggie doo-bags or just save your plastic grocery bags and take them along when you walk. The doo-bags should be tied closed and may be placed directly in the outside garbage can. There is weekly pickup of trash--just place all trash, including doo-bags in the outside trash can next to the house.

About Jim Brown, Beach Bum Rentals

Our family has been coming to Hilton Head for over twenty years and have always loved the low key, quiet atmosphere on the island. Since our family name is Lee, that is why we called our home Leeward Breezes.

Jim Brown, Beach Bum Rentals purchased this house in 2010

Why Jim Brown, Beach Bum Rentals chose Sea Pines

We love to ride bicycles. The bike/walking paths in Sea Pines are extensive, not crowded, and safe for biking, even with kids. We used to pass this neighborhood a lot on our bikes and these 'round houses' always intrigued me. My husband's favorite thing is to walk on the beach, which we can easily do from Leeward Breezes. Also, we wanted a place where we could bring our Australian Shepherds, so we could enjoy Hilton Head Island with them and not have to leave them at home or in a kennel. Many other properties do not allow pets, even if you are an owner.

What makes this house unique

The homes in Night Heron are free-standing homes and in a very quiet, peaceful atmosphere. They are really places to relax and unwind. Being pet friendly means your best friend can enjoy long walks on the bike/walking paths, the Sea Pines Forest Preserve, or the beach! Plus, if you do not have pets, we try very hard to make it nice and fresh and clean for you to stay too!

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four plus our lab stayed for a long weekend in November. The owners were very helpful. They house was just the right size, had everything we needed and was a perfect distance to walk or bike to the beach. We loved the little neighborhood of round houses. Hope to return someday soon!

Cute Bungalow in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. I will mention that even though linens are provided there were no blankets provided for the sleeper sofa so we had to make a Walmart run our first night so bring some with you if you plan on using the sofa bed. The Bungalow is located right by the ocean gate of Sea Pines so it was the perfect location for us. We could ride our bikes all over Sea Pines, down to the tiki hut, coligny beach park and shops, and tons of yummy restaurants. We enjoyed being able to bring our baby (Yorkie) with us. You can tell that others have enjoyed bringing their pets as well (hair left behind) but this is something you tend to have with pet friendly places.

Also I would suggest that the owner do something to keep the trash can lids closed (maybe a bungee?). We woke up a few nights to a raccoon going through the trash. Placed some large stones on the lid and that did the trick. The scenery is beautiful and one night we saw two deer right outside the Bungalow. Make sure if you need more than one parking pass for sea pines that you let the rental company know before hand as I dropped the ball on this and it caused a little confusion at the beginning of the trip. Jim was quick to respond to me and help with the situation. The Bungalow was surprisingly roomy and we didn’t feel cramped for space at all. We had a great time and would def stay here again.

32 Night Heron- A great place to enjoy a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The area is quiet and restful. Far from the stress and hectic activity of daily life. This was our first stay at this rental, and we were very pleased with the living area. This rental has a full kitchen- so if you want to do any cooking-it has a full stove and oven, microwave, and dish washer.

We love to walk and this rental is close to walking paths and a block from the beach. I love the outlets, we love all the restaurant choices, and we especially love the quiet atmosphere of Night Heron.

We have been visiting Night Heron since our honeymoon in 1983 and have stayed at several different rentals. 32 Night Heron is one of our favorites.

decent location

  • 3 of 5

good location. Loved Sea Pines area. Cottage needed some love. Linens were thin and cheap feeling. Would be nice if some of the outside lighting worked. Very dark however there were so many lighted plugins in the cottage(guessing wi-fi extenders)it was a little difficult sleeping. No love around the cottage. Very messy with garbage thrown off back deck/porch.

About a 3 block walk to beach, which was one of the best beaches every been too. Many options for restaurants.
