After years of traveling to Hilton Head and staying in either Palmetto Dunes or Shipyard we decided to stay in Sea Pines for a change. We had stayed in Harbour Town over New Years but in the summer we wanted to be closer to the beach. We loved it! Rented unit 1691 from VRBO. The unit had a few flaws (rusty shower curtain rod, outdated (though comfortable) bedroom furniture) but overall very clean and comfortable. There is a flight up to the third floor but we are in okay shape so not bad. The thing we loved the most was the location. We happen to like South Beach Marina even though it is touristy. Walked "next door" to Salty Dog and to go on Zodiac dolphin watch (amazing). Easy walk across the street to the beach. Loved how quiet and remote this area of the beach is. We drove another day to the Sea Pines Beach club. It was much more crowded but had bath facilitiies, chair/umbrella rentals and a restaurant/bar. This would have also been an easy bike ride. There were bike rentals also right next to us at South Beach and we biked to Harbour Town and back very easily. I will say it is probably the most remote part of the whole island but we didn't mind driving into town to eat a couple times. It's really only about 10-15 minutes. My husband also played tennis at the South Beach tennis center next door. This area has everything you need: shopping, restaurants, beach access, marina, tennis, pool, bikes. Will definitely stay here again.
