Greenwood Forest house description

Unwind at Starfish Cottage, a beautifully remodeled, light and bright vacation home in one of the best locations in Sea Pines Plantation! This very private single family home is filled with every amenity to make it a place you can call 'home' for your vacation. Featuring a private pool and spa, decorated in an upscale “beach” decor with new porcelain tile floors, this home is a beach-lovers paradise. Enter the cottage into a large open living room where a wall of French doors extends all the way across the back, opening to a large, beautifully furnished deck with a gorgeous pool and spa, and with wooded and lagoon views. The sound of the pool’s waterfall, the lushness of the giant moss-bearded trees and the native shrubbery, and the sheer beauty of the Sea Pines area create an environment so soothing that your day-to-day cares will vanish. Sit back and relax! Be sure and check out the owner's website - see link below or just Google 'Starfish Cottage Hilton Head'.

Enjoy the upgraded eat-in kitchen with classic tumbled marble tile countertops. The kitchen features a large side-by-side refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water dispenser and is well stocked with dishes, glassware, pots, pans, and everything you need to cook and dine at home. Enjoy the large deck and pool area with a new gas grill for your outdoor dining pleasure. The private pool and/or spa can be heated upon request ($250 extra) from April to November.

The master bedroom and queen guest bedroom each have a private access to the beautiful pool area, where you can enjoy the lagoon view and completely private back yard, pool and spa. The open floor plan offers everything you want for a family vacation or a romantic get-away. This vacation home is one of the few that you will find on Hilton Head with an eat-in kitchen as well as a separate dining room. The living room boasts a wall of built-ins where you can pick out a great book to read inside or out by the pool. You won't have to miss your favorite TV shows or sports events because there is a 47' LCD, wide screen HDTV and DVD player in the living room. There are also televisions in each of the three bedrooms with full cable access. You can access the internet anywhere in the home or poolside via a wireless broadband signal. We even offer a CD/iPod player, so bring your iPod or your favorite CDs and enjoy your music.

All three bedrooms are spacious with quality bedding. Luxury linens are provided. Both the master bedroom with king bed and the second bedroom with a queen bed have their own private bathrooms. Including the spacious third bedroom with two twin beds, the house easily accommodates six to eight guests. We have found that most pull-out sofas are so uncomfortable that we provide a queen-sized elevated air bed to accommodate extra sleeping needs.

You won't find a more inviting, light and airy home on Hilton Head Island ... we looked a long time to find the perfect vacation house, and we believe that Starfish Cottage is it! Come and relax at our newly remodeled home...a wonderful piece of paradise that we welcome you to enjoy.

Activities

At your doorstep are an array of activities, including world-renowned golfing and tennis as well as biking, hiking, fishing, and lazy days at the beach. Tennis players can use the FREE Greenwood Forest court or may opt for one of Sea Pines’ nationally-ranked tennis clubs with lighted clay courts. Guests are welcome at the clubs. World-class golf within Sea Pines awaits you, with the beautiful Ocean course, the Pete Dye-designed Heron course, and the magnificent Harbour Town Links clubhouses all within a two-minute drive from the house. You can also enjoy dozens of other courses on Hilton Head Island.

The cottage's location within Sea Pines Plantation allows you to easily walk to shops, ride your bike along the many miles of bike paths or to the Sea Pines Private Beach Club (a 12-minute bike ride) or to many of Sea Pines’ other beach access points (nearest one is a 10-minute bike ride). The house is just a fifteen-minute walk to Harbour Town, one of the most popular areas in all of Hilton Head Island. Just down the street from the house are the FREE Greenwood Forest neighborhood amenities - playground, swimming pool (great for swimming laps), basketball court and tennis court. In the house you'll find beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a cooler for your convenience. You can drive all this equipment to the Sea Pines Beach Club in about two minutes, where you can enjoy the beautiful beach, food and bar service with an ocean view, showers, restrooms, a beach store, and seasonal activities for children. The beach is attended by lifeguards during the summer season. If you prefer a more remote beach experience you can bike or walk to any of dozens of beach access points along Sea Pines’ 5 miles of beach.

History buffs will find much to see and do on or near Hilton Head, which is located in an area steeped in Southern culture and tradition. St. Helena Island, home to the unique Gullah people, is an easy day trip by car, as are Savannah, Charleston and Beaufort, all prominent Civil War towns. 'The Spirit of Harbour Town' tour boat conducts daily round trips (with a four-hour tour layover) to Savannah during the summer season.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We have been coming to Hilton Head for years, enjoying the beach, the bike trails, the golf courses, restaurants, ... etc. After making the decision to buy on the island we began a long search which culminated in 2008 with the purchase of a wonderful vacation house in Sea Pines. In February of 2009 we added a pool and spa, and the house became a perfect place to spend our vacation time. We have named it Starfish Cottage, and we hope you make it your favorite vacation home as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Greenwood Forest:
                  Starfish Cottage is on Hilton Head Island. It's in Sea Pines Plantation. Do we really have to explain more?

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This house would be a great vacation home even if it were not so well located. Relaxing inside the beautiful living room or out poolside, listening to the waterfall and enjoying the lush view, what more could you want. We also love that we can easily walk or bike to restaurants, shops and the beach.
