About the property

One story villa close to beach, 2 bedrooms + Carolina room, 2 baths (Sleeps 5)

The perfect vacation home for golfers, beach enthusiasts, tennis players, cyclists, and bird watchers, our Fairway Lane Villa, which we call 'Sea Whisper,' is located in the 8th row, only a 5 minute walk to a spectacular beach stretching over six miles. Sea Whisper provides beach access without the need to hunt for parking or to take a trolley. Guests stroll past lovely homes on an almost entirely dedicated beach path leading to the ocean.

Inside Sea Whisper, a wall of glass across the back affords views of wildlife and golfers (who hit away from the Villa) with only distant glimpses of other homes--a very private and tranquil setting. Our one story Villa features an open concept living room (with new furniture) and dining area, two master bedrooms (each with a queen-size bed and en suite bathroom) and a Carolina room (with a queen-size sleeper sofa). The Carolina room with its three sides of glass provides a comfortable seating area for reading, watching golfers tee off on the 4th hole of the new "Atlantic Dunes Course by Davis Love III" (formerly the "Ocean Course") and observing the herons that frequent the lagoon. Breakfast or evening snacks can be enjoyed on the dining table in this room.

Relaxing on the patio, guests can barbeque on the gas grill and dine outside on the new outdoor table with its umbrella or enjoy a drink while sitting in the rocker. We recently expanded the patio for a more spacious area. For those who prefer cooking inside, the open kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The adjacent dining table seats six persons comfortably.

Sea Whisper has beautiful tile and hardwood floors throughout (no wall-to-wall carpet). A large flat screen HD TV is located in the living room with additional flat screen TVs in each bedroom. Guests will enjoy cable, iPod docking station, DVD and complimentary wi-fi internet access (for their laptop or ipad) together with free unlimited telephone service throughout the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, a new large capacity washer and a large capacity dryer are located in the Villa.

The Fairway Lane private putting green (newly redone), an on site tennis court (newly resurfaced) for Fairway Lane owners and their guests and Sea Pines bike and walking trails are just steps from the door.

With an ideal location nearly adjacent to the Sea Pines Forest Preserve (a 600 acre protected wildlife area with four pristine stocked lakes, wildflower garden and hiking trails), our Villa is close to Harbour Town, the new Sea Pines Beach Club ( a nice walk along the beach or bike path), the Sea Pines pools, South Beach (home of the 'Salty Dog'), miles of bike trails and Lawton Stables (featuring trail rides and a petting zoo) as well as to restaurants and shopping. Breakfast on the porch of the elegant Plantation Golf Club, dinner in its "Fraser's Tavern" restaurant or a meal at the Harbour Town Club House is always a treat. Boasting 26 golf courses, Hilton Head is also a renowned tennis destination.

We are continually adding decorating touches to Sea Whisper because we want our guests to have a wonderful and comfortable experience while staying at our Villa and enjoying Hilton Head Island.

Why Eileen & Ron Epstein chose Sea Pines

We first visited Hilton Head in 1988 with a three year old in tow. At that time we decided that the Island with its tennis, golf, biking, bicycling, dining and magnificent beaches would be our choice for a vacation home someday. A few years ago we returned and immediately fell in love with this Fairway Lane villa because of its beautiful interior, great view of the Ocean Course (with a private putting green) and short walk to the beach. Our adult sons and daughter-in-law look forward to joining us in the many sports activities as we make new memories. The trip from Maine to this retreat is worth the journey!

What makes this villa unique

Few villas in Sea Pines offer walking access to the beach yet a shady yard to avoid the sun at the end of the day. The all glass Carolina room seems to us a perfect place for reading if one can avoid being distracted by the ever changing view of the birds flying over the lagoon to perch on the rail of a bridge or golfers swinging for the perfect shot off the tee.

Wonderful Villa in Sea Pines

  • 5 of 5

This villa was a great fit for my family of four. Nice sized bedrooms and baths, plenty of living space, and a great patio area leading out onto the golf course. I enjoyed having my morning coffee outside and then going for a walk around the course. Beach access is a five minute walk. The owners provided beach towels and chairs- was nice not to have to pack these additional items for the trip. Villa is in a great location and our overall experience was wonderful!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I recently booked a week in Sea Whisper and really enjoyed it! It was a great fit for us...the perfect size and perfect location. We really enjoyed the proximity to the Forest Preserve as well as the Beach. Sea Whisper had everything that we were looking for and we hope to stay there again in the future!

Winter paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Sea Whisper villa for 5 weeks in January and February. It was our second winter stay in the villa. Such a wonderful place to get away from winter in Ohio. The villa is clean, comfortable, and homey. The pictures on VRBO show everything exactly as it is. The location in Sea Pines is the best. Close to the beach, South Beach, Harbor Town, The Sea Pines Preserve, and Coligny. We rented bikes from Pedals on Pope Ave. The bikes were very reasonably priced and the staff is very helpful. Biking on the beach is one of our favorite things to do.

We spent many mornings in the bright Carolina Room having our coffee, reading, and watching golfers and wildlife. Such a lovely view.

The owners are wonderful to deal with. They are very prompt with their responses to any concerns we might have. Don't know them but would love to meet them some day. Would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a comfortable and relaxing vacation. There are way too many wonderful restaurants to choose from. Also plenty of nearby grocery stores is you choose to eat in. We were sad to leave.

Great Holiday Escape from the Snowy North!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday break staying at Sea Whisper! The villa is beautifully furnished and decorated. We loved the sun room overlooking the golf course. It was perfect for our family of 4.

The weather wasn't very warm during our visit, but it was warmer than it was at home. We rode bikes everyday - mostly to the Harbortown playground. We enjoyed the putting green, tennis courts and the very close path to the beach. This was the first time we stayed in this area of Sea Pines and will definitely look to stay here again - such a nice central location. Going this time of year is a plus as well - we prefer small crowds :)

The guest book was helpful in finding places to eat as were the directions provided in the villa and sent to us prior to our arrival. Also, we must point out that the water pressure was fantastic in both bathrooms - we typically find sub-par water pressure in the showers, so we were pleasantly surprised!

Thank you for the opportunity to stay here A++

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I “lived” one week at Sea Whisper last June. I say that because it really feels like our home away from home! We have stayed here multiple times and hope to do so again this June. The villa has everything you need to have a memorable vacation on HHI. It’s very nicely furnished, private, peaceful, has a wonderful view, and is about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The Epstein’s are very accommodating owners to top it off. We highly recommend this home away from home!

Sea Whisper at Hilton Head

Sea Whisper is a beautifully decorated villa that greets you with a warm welcome. Our stay was very relaxing. Each morning we enjoyed watching the golfers tee off. The path to the beach is so convenient! We look forward to a return trip! John & Sherry
