From the moment I drove into Sea Pines I knew we were in for a treat! Upon entering this beautifully decorated and cozy villa, I could see straight through to the back yard to my most favorite feature of the property-that gorgeous Spanish Oak and lagoon! Wow! I brought my daughter and her friend (two college age girls) for a long weekend to get away after being cooped up during the Covid quarantine. We spent our first night in Savannah which was a beautiful and short drive to Hilton Head. This villa was perfect for the 3 of us. Plenty of comfy sitting for movie watching. Great kitchen with a waffle maker (big hit!). The kitchen is well stocked with all of our cooking/grilling needs! The beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms-spacious. Nice linens. We especially enjoyed eating out on the back deck on the comfy lounge watching the Spanish oak sway in front of the lagoon while we watched the wildlife out there. The parking was easy and plentiful , as well. It was an easy drive to the beach. Next time we will rent bikes! We enjoyed walking to the horse stables one evening where we got to feed horses hay. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool in the complex. It was a very short walk from the villa. Spacious deck, nice chairs, privacy fence. Lovely neighbors. It felt like home....but at the beach! Grocery shopping was a short drive and I found the prices to be very fair for a beach town. I look forward to returning and staying at least a week so I can choose from one of the many books off the shelf, breathe in the Spanish oak a bit more, and bike to the beach! Many thanks to the owners and the managers for the hospitality! Thank you for being so good at responding to our questions and helping us find just the right weekend to visit the beautiful Sea Pines of HHI.
