About the property

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

The perfect vacation home for golfers, bird watchers, beach enthusiasts, tennis players and cyclists, 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. Guests stroll past lovely homes along the 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. 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 "Live Oak" 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 Island Areas

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.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Hilton Head for twenty years and have stayed at Sea Whisper three times in the last two years. It is by far one of the nicest places we have rented. It is peaceful, comfortably furnished, beautiful views, close to the beach, and very private. We thoroughly enjoy the patio where we can watch the wildlife and the golfers. The kitchen is very well equipped. The Epsteins are wonderful people to rent from; they are prompt with their responses and treat their guests like family. We are looking forward to our next visit to Hilton Head and Sea Whisper!!

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Whisper for two weeks and loved it!! We lived in Hilton Head (Sea Pines)for close to 30 years and know this perfect hideaway!! The short walk to the beach is totally worth it because it is more private than most spots. And we loved sitting out on the back patio under the grand old oak trees (very peaceful)! The villa is very up to date and well furnished. Eileen was very good to work with, even though we have never met we consider her family.

We found our new vacation spot in Sea Pines!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week stay at Sea Whisperer and are already planning on returning to the same place next summer. We have been traveling to Sea Pines for the past 10 years and this is our first stay at this location. We absolutely loved it! As the other reviewers have stated, the home is clean and inviting. Ron and Eileen have done a fantastic job at making their place a great place for guests. The beach is a short walk up a private, quiet path. A HUGE difference between the beach access here and other places we have stayed is the amount of people on the beach. Because the path lets out to a private beach versus the Beach Club or a public beach, there were significantly fewer people. There were times when we had a hundred yards of beach all to ourselves.

An unexpected benefit of this unit is its proximity to the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. It is just around the corner and for those who want to enjoy a great hike or do some freshwater fishing, the location is perfect.

We will definitely be back!!!

This place is wonderful! The owners take great pride in it and it looks phenomenal! Tastefully decorated, close to the beach, golf course, bike paths, Sea Pines Beach Club, tennis court, private putting green and more. My favorite part was the California Room and the gorgeous view. We loved to sit on the back patio and soak in all in. We biked all over to Harbour Town, South Beach, Lawton Stables, and Sea Pines Preserve. Well stocked with kitchen, beach towels and chairs and more. Highly recommended!

Wonderful experience at Sea Whisperer

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful week last August at this excellent rental. Everything at the rental was as described. There were so many activities close by, and the beach was a short walk away. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, from beach gear to cooking utensils. We'd love to come back another time'
