Private Homes house description
This 2800 sq ft home sits on a spacious half acre lot amidst palms, bountiful azaleas and towering Carolina pines overlooking a scenic lagoon, and with easy proximity to the BEACH, POOL, TENNIS and GOLF inside the plantation either on a bike or by car. At the house, there is ample space for different activities for different people - cooking, reading, sunning, biking, watching movies, bird watching, listening to music - you may find you explore the area less because of this home's well designed comforts, elegance, and serenity.
Here escape the traffic, crowds, and noise that so often accompany beach destinations. Instead bike on one of the 4 bikes we've left for you, or walk on level pathways through forests past manicured golf courses, and fountains, or drive or bike within the plantation to the quietest beach on the island that the public cannot access. Bring the beach chairs we provide, your happy hour drinks for sunset, wiggle your toes in the sand, and breathe in the fresh sea air. Later sample some of the locals' favorite waterfront restaurants close by. (We have left our suggestions for you). No neon signs, no casinos, no motorcycles, no bright night lights, but instead a respect for natural beauty, peacefulness, and recreation.
Of course, outside the plantation is a vast array of other seaside experiences - dolphin watching, golfing, (discount golf information is at the house), imaginative mini-putt, salt marsh kayaking , outlet mall shopping, museums, beach biking, or beach tanning/reading, Tuesday fireworks nights, tennis, water sports, boating - not to mention side trips to historic Charleston, and Savannah.
Hilton Head is renowned for tremendous restaurant quality, and value: there are so many competitors, you are ensured what you want is available at a reasonable price. Naturally, some nights you will enjoy dinner at home cooked in the fully equipped kitchen, and served outside on the patio, or in the formal dining room for a special meal shared with friends.
Will a week really be sufficient to do all this?
Where else can you experience the fun, and variety of a prime beach destination with all these house comforts, and the COMPLIMENTARY use of 5 bikes, a car bike rack, PLUS beach equipment - chairs, cooler, umbrella, and the cart to haul it all in? We want to guarantee you comfort, pleasure, and recessionary SAVINGS with no extra charges for cleaning or linens for stays of a week or more.
Come, experience Hilton Head Island. Rest, relax, recharge - reserve! You're going to love it here.

ReviewsWrite a review
A few moths ago we stayed in this home during the summer, and we simply cannot wait to return! We love traveling to Hilton Head, as the residents have taken care to keep the beach from becoming over-commercialized and have focused on keeping the island as natural as possible. We also love eating out on vacation and there are so many places we love that we simply can't get to them all in one week! What made this home different from previous places we've stayed in Hilton Head was the peace and solitude that it afforded us. It truly was a home away from home. We sat on the screened-in porch every morning sipping our coffee, admiring the wildlife. We used the neighborhood pool, which was never crowded or noisy. There's a small private beach within the community, as well as lovely public beaches within ten minute drives. The beds were comfortable and the layout of the rooms meant no one disturbed others if they kept different hours. It is a beautiful home and we feel lucky that it is available for us to "borrow." We only wish we could stay longer than a week! This home is so beautiful and so romantic, that during our stay my fiance and I got engaged! Now this home will always be special to us. And I highly recommend Trattoria Divina, the Italian restaurant where he proposed. Thank you so much, Colleen and Don, for opening your home to us. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Owner response: Hi Kristine, How wonderful that our house for your Hilton Head vacation will always be the memory of your engagement. The beauty that draws you repeatedly to this island is what also caused us to buy here: quiet and peacefulness when you want it, and very close by, endless recreation, shopping and wonderful restaurants. What an excellent place for a honeymoon! Hope you can return soon. Colleen

Comfortable home in a very desirable location as depicted in the pictures and commentary. Beautiful wooded lot, quiet street, and scenic bike trails. We enjoyed the area as it was very private, within bike riding distance of the beautiful Sound, yet close to an upscale grocery store and boutiques. For those never visiting Hilton Head it is a beautifully developed/maintained island with exquisite natural beauty yet many amenities and rich in culture. We enjoyed an event sponsored by the Hilton Head Symphony which was most enjoyable. We highly recommend and found the owners very helpful and nice!

Owner response: Hi Dona, I'm so pleased that your stay at our house was exactly the type of experience you had planned. It sounds as if you have very similar tastes to us since you enjoyed the natural beauty of the island and our house, the extensive biking trails, and the wonderful HH symphony. I hope you can visit again to tap into more of the island's offerings. Best regards, Colleen
My family's experience while at HHI could not have been better! Colleens home was the ideal setting for peaceful relaxation during our escape, clean, quiet, and well equipped. She also gave suggestions for activities, dining, and sites which we very much enjoyed. Can't wait for next year to enjoy this again.

Loved EverythingGuest comment entered by owner
Words cannot express how much we have enjoyed spending the week in your beautiful home. Every aspect made us feel so comfortable. We loved everything about the HH experience from the Old Fort Pub to the Oyster Festival, but especially your lovely home. We look forward to our return visit.

Home Away From Home
We had such a wonderful vacation in your lovely home, and made so many wonderful memories during our stay. The kitchen was stocked with so many helpful things such as spices and condiments, that made our stay like home away from home. The bikes were wonderful as we would enjoy a early morning ride through the plantation each day. The beach cart and chairs were so helpful with taking our 3 children to the beach. We also appreciated all of your suggestions of beaches and restaurants, they really helped give us ideas of places to see during our visit. Thank you again for your hospitality and we look forward to our next visit to HHI.

Our Best Hilton Head Visit
This was our 3rd visit to HH, and by far our most enjoyable and relaxing due to using your home. You two have a beautiful place here.This is one of our favorite vacation spots due to the "laid back" atmosphere and the efforts the town of HH has made to prevent over commercialization. "Roasted Fish and Cornbread" was a good restaurant find, quaint with excellent seafood. Thank you for sharing your home with us. May God bless you.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are a recently retired couple who have for years shivered through winter, but no more! In our search for a warmer climate second home, Hilton Head's attractions outnumbered our other possibilities. Here was a controlled world, where long ago, planners envisioned an environment that respected nature's beauty, not destroyed it. Stringent controls have prevented neon signs; permits are necessary to remove trees; noise, and speed laws are enforced; lighting has to meet specific standards - this is a world of scenic beauty, and recreation. In addition, where else can you bike ride on the beach, for miles, your roses don't die over the winter, palms and azaleas thrive, plus you can drive from home?
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Life in Hilton Head Plantation is more relaxed and less busy than other areas since cars are not admitted through to sightsee the area. Many people live here year round, so it is not so transient, or seasonal. People here smile, and say hi even when they don't know you. It's friendly, scenic, comfortable, and readily accessible to amenities, many of which are here right inside the gates.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has spacious rooms which in addition to the outside views seen through the many windows, and skylights, seem to meld the outdoors with the indoors. We don't feel confined here, and part of that is a temperate climate that has a resort-like feel to it, so no matter the season, the outdoors can be enjoyed. The tropical palms swaying outside the screened porch, the Carolina swing under the portico, all contribute to relaxation. What else do we like here? The sunshine's sparkle on the lagoon, the birds' song at the feeder, quick bike trips to the beach, or fine restaurants, and the factory outlets just off the Island!
