As its name suggests, Beachwalk 147 really is just a short walk from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Nestled within the 800-acre Shipyard Plantation near the southern end of Hilton Head Island, the two-bedroom condo also offers free access to a large outdoor swimming pool and biking and walking trails flanked by towering pines, moss-draped oaks, and tropical palm trees.
You can revel in the lush foliage and the singing of thrushes and warblers from Beachwalk 147’s porch. It’s an inviting space for whiling away the day. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of its dining table for alfresco meals. The salt-tinged ocean breeze will make even soup and sandwiches seem like a feast. And at night it’s an ideal setting for enjoying a romantic drink in the moonlight.
Of course, you can dine indoors too. The spacious table seats six in style and comfort, and there’s a second table in the kitchen where four people can gather for a snack or a less-formal meal. The galley kitchen is equipped with shining stainless-steel appliances, gleaming countertops, and all the cookware, gadgets, and tableware you could possibly need. The only thing you have to provide is food—and there are numerous supermarkets nearby.
The living room of Beachwalk 147 has enough plush seating to accommodate the whole gang for movie night; there’s a large flat-screen TV with cable and a DVD player. The sliding glass doors that open onto the porch also let in plenty of sunlight. Even when you’re stretched out on the sofa surfing the web via the free WiFi, you’ll feel as if you’re basking outdoors. On chilly winter evenings, you can gather by the fireplace for a game of Pictionary or plan your next day’s adventures.
The master bedroom has a sumptuous king-size bed you’ll love stretching out on. Above it are skylights so that you can fall asleep while gazing up at the canopy of stars. This bedroom also has a trundle bed that can sleep two more, making the space well suited for a couple with young children who don’t want to sleep alone. It also has a large en-suite bathroom with dual sinks and a wealth of storage.
The 2nd bedroom can sleep four people as well, in a pair of full beds. This room also has its own full bathroom, and for added convenience, there’s a half-bath by the living/dining area. When you arrive at Beachwalk 147 you’ll find the beds neatly made up and plenty of fresh towels waiting in the bathrooms—no need to bring your own.
You will want to bring your bathing suits and sunscreen, though, so that you can swim in the outdoor pool and lounge on a poolside chaise afterward. And of course, there’s the beach, which you can walk to in less than ten minutes. At least once during your stay, you should head out early to catch the sunrise over the Atlantic; it’s a sight you’ll long remember.
If you play tennis or golf, bring your racket or clubs. Shipyard Plantation is home to the Van der Meer Shipyard Racquet Club, with three indoor and seventeen outdoor courts, as well as to a 27-hole golf club. And of course there are several other golf courses just a short drive away; this is Hilton Head, after all!
Also, just a quick drive away are numerous shops, restaurants, two huge outlet malls, and Pinckney Island National Wildlife Preserve, where you’ll spot numerous shorebirds, turtles, and even alligators. Dolphin- and whale-watching tours are another great way to observe local animal life. And for a change of pace, you can drive to the charming city of Savannah; it’s less than an hour away.
At Beachwalk 147 you can make the most of everything the Low Country has to offer. So make your reservation today, and get ready for the vacation of your dreams.
