Échanges avec les voyageurs
This is our second home; we live in California and so won't be able to meet our guests. We will arrange key pickup and drop off via our property manager.
A fee of $16.50 will be paid to the property manager on pickup of key. This is for the Sea Pines Gate Pass.
Bikes! If you take only one recommendation from us, let it be this one. Rent bikes for the duration of your stay, and do all your daytime-inside-Sea Pines travel by bike. The system of bike trails is extensive and beautiful. One of our favorite trips is to check out the tide tables and go to the Atlantic Ocean beach at low tide when the sand is hard enough to support a bike and rider. We also check the weather channel just to discover the direction the prevailing breeze. The beach runs from southwest to northeast. Almost always the breeze is out of the south or west, and so you want to enter the beach at the southwest end. You can do this on a beach access from the bike trail at Tower Beach. If you are riding on a day when the breeze is from the north or east, your ride should probably start at the Plantation Club. You can, of course, decide to ride against the wind if you want a workout. Remember to stop a few times on the huge expanse of beach and just gaze out to sea. There is magic here.
Groceries. We do most of our grocery shopping in three stores just outside the Sea Pines gate. There is a large Publix in the shopping center to your left just after you exit Sea Pines and just before you reach Sea Pines Circle. There is a Harris-Teeter in the shopping center to the right just as you leave Sea Pines. If you favor a more natural/organic grocery, you can go straight through the traffic circle and within a mile or two find a Fresh Market on the left just past the best miniature golf course on the island.
Restaurants. Hilton Head Island has a huge variety of places to eat, from burgers to outstanding New American cuisine. We generally eat breakfast and lunch at home and go out to dinner. When you go to the grocery look on the sidewalk outside for dispensers of various sorts of free publications. One of them is a thick newsprint publication called Hilton Head Restaurants. Almost every restaurant on the island is listed along with descriptions and a map showing where on the island they are located. There are two places you really should try right in Sea Pines. The first is Truffles. This is where families go for an upscale reunion dinner. It's family-run and has been a landmark for decades. The second is South Beach. Probably you have seen, somewhere in your travels, a Salty Dog T-shirt. Those shirts all come from the South Beach Marina in Sea Pines. You can have burgers, fried seafood and beer at the justly famous Salty Dog Cafe or try a more upscale seafood restaurant - the point, however, is to soak up the South Beach Marina vibe, and maybe treat yourselves to ice cream or a Salty Dog T-shirt of your own.
When you've done all you can or want to do in the way of active fun, just go back to the beach. Take our beach umbrellas and chairs, and just watch the waves. Some people get inspiration from mountains, some get inspiration from the sea. You can even think about your work if you want, and no one will suspect. In our experience, sitting on the beach in the face of a light sea breeze is the best source of new ideas and new insights we've ever found.
We allow well-behaved dogs to stay in the condo, however we will invoice an additional pet fee of $150 after booking. This fee pays to have the carpets cleaned after departure of guests with pets.
No smoking inside, please.
We are a professional couple who own a small biotech consulting business. We work out of our home in Silicon Valley, California. Our villa on Hilton Head Island is our retreat - we love the island and plan to retire there some day.
