About The Owner

Island resident for 32 years. Love the

Island and its beauty. Lovely beaches

and endless, wonderful bike paths. It

offers so much... exercise, shopping,

fine and family restaurants, kayaking,

boating, crabbing, fishing, tennis, golf, name it, the possibilities are

endless. Other partners in the home are

from Virginia and Michigan and enjoy

the Fall for the quiet, relaxing time

and reduced traffic. Terrific Golf

in the Fall with reduced rates.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

Quiet community and one of the

original beachhouses on Hilton

Head.,...all the charm & coziness of a real

beach cottage but with all the conveniences

and great location you want when you are on vacation. The pristine beach is one of the best on HiltonHead, if not, the best!!!

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy one of the best beaches on HH.

Close proximity to restaurants and shopping and the wonderful, improved bicyle path that goes EVERYWHERE on the 12 mile Island.

We retained the charm in this authentic and original

beachhouse yet we incorporated all the comforts

and conveniences you enjoy while vacationing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our entire faily had a restful, peaceful and fun experience

on Hilton Head. Your home is the perfect way to experience

the Island and we loved every minute we spent here. We saw

crabs, pelicans, dolphins at the beach and relaxed by your

nice big pool at the end of each day and cooked out on the

grill. We would certainly recommend this colorful home

to others and, hopefully, we will come back. Thanks for

helping us create a wonderful family vacation.

We enjoyed every moment of our stay.. We were celebrating my son's graduation in Savanah, having a large family a beach house seemed like the perfect solution The location was convenient...quick drive to Savannah, short walk to the beach, bike trails, restaurants, and shops all close by. The pool was the icing on the cake!

High Tide Cottage EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at High Tide Cottage and it won't be our last. There were 7 of us along with 2 dogs. There was plenty of room - even the dining room table was big enough for our crew! It felt like we were at home - so comfortable. The decor is amazing - the entire house is filled with beach items. The house & pool was in good clean condition. Such a big patio area too, plenty of chairs for all. The neighborhood was very quiet. And such a short walk to the beach, very easy to pull our cart on the pathway. And this area of beach was very private. Also found a new restaurant, called Lowcountry Backyard Restaurant. We had to wait an hour but it was well worth it.

Thanks again Catherine!!

Best December vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Winter can be brutal if you live "Up North," like we do, so having survived "Snow-vember" in Buffalo, we were more than ready to head South. Staying at High Tide Cottage was just what the doctor ordered! Sunny walks on the sparesely populated beach (a mere two minute walk from the cottage) plus staying at this fully furnished cottage really revitalized us.

On this our second visit to High Tide Cottage but our first in December, we discovered that Hilton Head is so laid back that finalizing our Christmas shopping was a breeze.

We saw more wildlife than we expected in December--alligators sunning themselves in the wildlife preserves (for my husband), warblers and butterflies in the cottage's backyard (for me), and dolphins and various shorebirds in the ocean (for both of us).

High Tide Cottage is completely and delightfully furnished and we found that it was quite cozy even on some chilly evenings. The owner, who lives nearby, called once to see if everything was alright, and then gave us complete privacy for the rest of our stay.

Getting a break from winter blues and holiday madness--this cottage scores a 10 with me.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. This was the perfect place for us. Close to a lot of nice golf courses and also very close to the beach. I believe we read in a previous review that it was 5 min walk to the beach, but it seemed shorter than that to us. We found some great restaurants within a 10 minute drive that were right on the water and had nice views. If you prefer to cook at home there are plenty of grocery stores within a 5 min drive. There was an abundant amount of space for our group and our dog, even though we spent very minimal time inside. Nice private pool and very big backyard area if you wanted to grill or eat outdoors. The house was very clean upon our arrival and we found all of the necessities (plenty of plates, silverware, glasses, etc). We couldn't have been happier with our stay.
