Overview

About the property

Private Home, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 7 Baths (Sleeps 22-24)

More than 5,700 square feet of luxurious living space and abundant amenities, we know you will enjoy staying in our home by the sea. Our home offers a private 18 x 32 inground pool with built-in hot tub, Xbox 360 system with games, bumper pool table, wireless broadband Internet, 2 wet bars, gourmet kitchen, 2 widescreen TVs, Blu-Ray DVD with NetFlix Internet streaming, DVD movie library, membership at South Beach Racquet club, a double brick Savannah grill, and two outdoor shower stalls with changing areas. There is ample meal seating for large groups, with seating for 25 people (12 at dining room table, 9 around kitchen bar, 4 at morning room table) using the dining table and kitchen barstools. Our home is a true 2nd row home, 1 house from an uncrowded beach, approximately 90 seconds to walk from the rear gate to the beach.

Sea Pines offers numerous amenities such as golf, tennis, horseback riding, watersports, 15 miles of bike trails, day spa, forest preserve & ancient ruins.

Four seating/conversation areas: Three seating/conversation areas on the main floor provide ample space for large groups or family reunions to relax and catch up on each others lives. The Living Room and Sun Room were designed adjacent to one another and can easily be combined to provide seating for a large group to watch a movie on the wide screen TV with Blu-Ray DVD player (the DVD player is also NetFlix streaming compatible, which provides unlimited free instant video on demand for guests with a NetFlix account).

Gameroom, Pool, Beach....: The game room downstairs provides another wide screen TV, this time connected to an Xbox 360 system for the ultimate in video gaming. The game room also has a bumper pool table and wet bar to make your stay fun for kids of all ages. Directly off the game room is the patio that boasts a heated pool & hot tub (extra fee required), double Savannah brick grill (one side propane, one side charcoal), and outdoor seating for 16 guests. Leaving through the rear gate, guests can be on the beach in about 90 seconds, close enough that you’ll find guests constantly flowing back and forth between home, beach, & pool.

Gourmet Kitchen & Two Wet Bars: Many cooks can easily work together in the spacious, well equipped kitchen. Commercial grade appliances from Viking, Bosch, and KitchenAid, combined with cabinets well stocked with cooking equipment to support any cooks in your group. Double oven, double dishwashers, and a stove top grill in the kitchen are provided to handle large group meals. An oversized 48" sub-zero fridge in the kitchen handles your main food and beverages, a full-sized fridge in the laundry room handles any overflow for large groups, a counter size fridge in the lower level wet bar provides easy access to beverages from the pool area, and a wine fridge in the upstairs wet bar rounds out the refrigeration options.

Our home is also available as a 5 bedroom, 6 bath rental during off peak periods at a discounted rate (3 lower level bedrooms will be locked: a master, the double bunk & the double twin bedrooms). This works well for groups with uncertainty in how many people will be vacationing together. With the 5 bedroom option, guests upgrade to the full 8 bedrooms at the last minute to accommodate any unexpected guests.

Why Mike Rowen chose Sea Pines

We love Sea Pines. It's one of the top beach resorts in the USA. Our street and beach are among the most private in Sea Pines and the beach is only 90 seconds from the rear gate.

Outstanding Sea Pines Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year renting this wonderful home with our growing family ~ 13 adults and 1 grandchild this year. Mike, the owner, is very prompt in responding to questions, email and so easy to work with. The house is ideal for a large group and very well stocked from the kitchen to the chaise lounges by the pool.

The location is ideal, a 3 min walk to the beach, great sized pool with plenty of pool furniture for all to enjoy. The dining table accommodates 14-16 and we love having the extra refrigerator downstairs for extra beverages - the Rowan's have thought of everything!

Our family has decided we can't find a better spot for our annual vacation so we are booked again next year ~ that says it all! 5 stars all around.

Great home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay met all our expectations. The house is ideally located a maximum 2 minute walk from the best beach in North America.

The pool area also provided an outdoor option which was most enjoyable.

We ate in every night but one. The kitchen area provides ample space for many cooks working at the same time. For a large family , this home is ideal.

Spacious home in Sea Pines

  • 5 of 5

This home is great for large groups. All the bedrooms are spacious. You have 2 dishwashers in the kitchen, plus a large refrigerator, a wine fridge, another small fridge and a big refrigerator for overflow in the laundry room -- oh, and another small fridge by the bumper pool. The swimming pool is a nice size - the hot tub is really a "spa" and not hot (same temp as the pool). Sound system in the pool area was a bonus.

This house is close to the ocean on a quiet street. You will also be near the bike paths in Sea Pines - can easily ride to South Beach or Harbour Town. Owner recommended Pelican Cruiser.com for bike rental and our family enjoyed riding the bikes on the trails, on the beach at low tide, etc.

We had lots of maintenance issues on this house while we were there. If you are renting and notice something that isn't working properly, please call Sunset Rentals (the management company listed on the refrigerator) - do not just let it go for the next renters to deal with. Sunset was very prompt about fixing anything we called about.

Also, if there is something that you want for the home, the owner will order it for you from Amazon Prime and you will have it in 2 days. How cool is that?

You will love this home. Hope to come back some day.

Fabulous home for large families and groups!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for large families!! We had 25 in and out all week and everything was perfect. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped with everything necessary to enjoy meals with everyone. The bedrooms and baths are large and were clean and obviously cared for. Gathering spaces are huge, cozy and the furniture is comfy for lounging, meetings, cocktails and watching sports and Shark Week!! The owners have thought of everything, including board games, books and video games. The pool is big and was clean with ample seating for everyone, whether seeking sun or shade under the covered table and chairs. There were many water toys available for use. The gas grill was a great bonus!! The beach is 2 minute walk away on the private path access. This was truly an awesome property to celebrate our families 19th family reunion. Thank you tot the Rowens for allowing us to rent their property. We are very excited to be re-booked for next year!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Property Manager Fee $149 + Tax
Damage Protection $79 + Tax
Tax Rate 15.0%

See the attached contract for details on cancellation policy. Cancellation fee is 10% from booking through 90 days prior to arrival, then 40% between 90 & 30 days prior to arrival, then 100% within 30 days.

4 Sea Pines gate passes are provided with each rental. Additional passes can be purchased at the gate or welcome center.

Spa heat is $100/week. Pool heat varies by time of year from $300 to $600/week. Pool heaters have the ability to maintain water temperature about 20 degrees higher than air temperature. So realistically if the temperature forecast during your stay is expected to fall below 50 degrees overnight, the resulting pool temp will be below 70 degrees, likely too cold for comfortable pool use.

Homeaway and VRBO charges a "Service Fee" to guests making reservations using their online booking system. Contact me at lmrowens-rt@yahoo.com for alternative payment options that exclude this fee.
