About John Lambis

Born and raised in Newport, RI, the ocean has always been special to me. Whether sailing rails-in, fishing from the shore, surfing in the waves or just skimming rocks on the water, many pleasant memories were made there. When I moved to the south and met my wife Kathryn, we both longed for a getaway near the water. That's when we discovered Hilton Head Island. We've always loved vacationing in Sea Pines and after many pleasant stays, we finally decided to purchase a home. We truly are excited about Tupelo Honey and are looking forward to others enjoying all it has to offer.

John Lambis purchased this house in 2013

Why John Lambis chose Hilton Head

The Sea Pines Plantation is like no other vacation / resort community you will find. And Tupelo Honey puts you in one of the best locations in the plantation. Whether its a short stroll to the Sea Pines Beach Club, Lawton Stables or a bike ride to Harbour Town or South Beach, you're just minutes to the best that Sea Pines has to offer. You'll quickly find yourself not wanting to use your car, but walk or bike everywhere! That's what the Sea Pines Plantation and Tupelo Honey are all about - connecting with family, friends and the unique environment of the plantation.

What makes this house unique

This isn't a 'rental property' to us - it's our home! We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a special place, with all the amenities you'd expect in a resort home, along with the charm and comfort of a true 'beach' house. As you can see in the pictures - our recent renovations, along with the open floor plan, will keep you comfortable and connected with family and the outdoors. Imagine sitting at the dining room table, or on the screened porch, and having a fabulous view of the birds or the pool. Some evenings you will see deer slowly work their way through the area and disappear into the woodland area behind our home. We looked at many homes in the area before we purchased this house and began its' transformation into Tupelo Honey. You won't find a cleaner, more relaxed, open and fun house in the area.

Excellent house with pool and dog-friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 4 adults, 4 kids, and a dog. The house had plenty of space and amenities - the kids loved the screened in back porch for tv time, and the parents loved having some separate space too! The biggest draw of the house was the pool. The kids begged to go in it every day, and we even had some night swims. The kitchen was fully stocked, the beach equipment (chairs, cart, umbrella, boogie boards) was great and much appreciated. The home was in a great location - a quick ride to the beach and all of the other Sea Pines activities.

John was great to work with. We noticed a big leak from the kitchen faucet and notified him and he quickly arranged for a plumber to come fix it. Also, we weren't able to get into the shed housing the beach equipment (total oversight of location on our part) but John quickly contacted us to let us know exactly how to get into it. We will be returning to Sea Pines quite often and will always consider this home first. We loved it!

Perfect Central Sea Pines Stay with Dogs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week in April 2016 with 4 adults and 2 dogs and the house was perfectly setup for us to have a spectacular visit. We LOVED the central SeaPines location of this home as it was a nice bike ride to anywhere in SeaPines. In other locations we have rented, it has been a fairly far bike ride to at least one end SeaPines. Also, the owner John was very punctual and a pleasure to work with. As well, he has a nicely stocked kitchen which isn't always the case with VRBO properties we have rented. Master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home from the other two bedrooms, which is great when others wanted to stay up much later than us. Everything in the home was in good shape and nothing needed maintenance. Will stay here again. Thanks John!!

Snow Bird

  • 4 of 5

We were in residence for 4 months and had a very enjoyable stay. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with from beginning to end. The minor issues that occurred were immediately resolved .The house easily expanded and contracted to be comfortable for the two of us and feel spacious when there were 6. It was well equipped with a great bed in the master suite! The kitchen is well stocked and comfortable to work in. The interior is relaxed and easy to care for, The outside service companies (pool, landscape and trash) are thorough and timely. The house is well located and in easy reach of Harbourtown, the beach and both Sea Pines gates. It was tough to leave.

Adult Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

The house was very nice. Kitchen and baths were well stocked. Plenty of storage and closets, although I would suggest bringing hangers. Good location and beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately, the pool is in the shade all day long. Having a house with a pool, assuming the pool would be in sun some of the time, was on top of our shortlist! We were looking forward to spending some of the time hanging around the pool and unfortunately, this didn't happen.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fist Sea Pines stay. Tupelo Honey was a fantastic home centrally located. The pool was a refreshing relief after playing in the ocean. John is great to work and quick to respond. I would go back.

WINTER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

This is our second winter in Tupelo Honey. John has added improvements that help make it feel like home.

This is one of the best stocked kitchens in all our years of renting. We like to cook and the selection of pots and pans is fantastic. The shower in the master bath is my favorite----I'm just sorry we can't come back next winter.
