Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come share in the serenity and beauty of South Beach living, as we have done for over 15 years. Located at the point where the Atlantic Ocean and Calibogue Sound meet, the area is ideal for any and all water activities you can imagine. Come find your peaceful vacation within the gated community of Sea Pines Plantation.

Our villa has an updated kitchen with cabinets and granite counters, including new appliances, dishware, cooking utensils. A granite breakfast bar was added for additional seating and to take advantage of the views of Calibogue Sound. A favorite spot for children during breakfast. Both bathrooms have custom vanities with granite counters and porcelain tile floors. The entire villa has been repainted, and all furnishing were selected by an interior decorator to match the decor one expects on a vacation by the ocean. New custom blinds in both bedrooms and living room. New sleeper sofa, new couch , and new love seat. Located on the top floor, this 2 bed/2 bath villa is light and bright. Living room/dining/kitchen areas feature tiled floors and cathedral ceilings, and these areas, as well as the balcony, all look west to the Calibogue Sound and all those spectacular sunsets. Conveniently located in the South Beach Marina area - guests will be close to dining, shopping, tennis, golfing, boating activities, bike trails and more. All of this, and just a short 70 yard walk to the beach!

Bluff Villas are at the southern end of Sea Pines Plantation. The area provides numerous water activities to enjoy, or to take a leisurely stroll along the ocean and watch the dolphins frolicking along the water's edge. The South Beach Marina Village, home of the world famous Salty Dog Cafe and only steps from Bluff Villas, provides shops, restaurants, and charter tours on the water. The Village is where you'll also find the community pool if the beach isn't to your taste, and numerous high quality tennis courts (costs may apply). Sea Pines has over 20 miles of bike paths, four golf courses, including the Harbor Town Club (home to the Heritage Classic golf tournament), tennis courts of all types, an equestrian center, and a wildlife preserve to explore. Both within Sea Pines and just outside the gates reside over 200 restaurants ranging from children friendly to fine dining. So, whatever your heart desires, the South Beach area and Bluff Villas has it covered!

About Todd & Kelli Axtell

We've been coming to Hilton Head for more than 15 years and finally decided to purchase a property for our enjoyment. We have 3 beautiful grown children who love the area as much as we do.

Todd & Kelli Axtell purchased this villa in 2014

Why Todd & Kelli Axtell chose Sea Pines

We love our villa and want you to love it as much as we do. We not only rent our unit, but we stay in it several times a year to make sure we keep it up-to-date and comfortable for our guest. We take your suggestions seriously and try our best to accommodate your needs so you can have the best vacation possible.

What makes this villa unique

This Sea Pines area has so much to offer. We can't imagine picking another plantation. There is plenty of dolphin sightings on the sound. The nature preserve is beautiful, especially when the flower gardens are in full bloom. You can always spot an alligator in one of the many lagoons. There is a huge alligator by the Ocean Gate lagoon.

Better than expected and more than we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The view and proximity to the beach were awesome. The villa was very clean, the furniture was comfortable, hangers in the closets and soft toilet paper were an added bonus. I loved sitting at the dining table and staring through the tall pines to the sound. So pretty and peaceful—even with the uncharacteristic daily thunderstorms—we could watch the orange glow of the sunsets reflect off the water. The bicycle path and trolley stop are right outside and the spacious parking lot was much appreciated as South Beach is a popular tourist spot and super congested at times. We loved walking to the Village by the short cut through and seeing the famous Harbour Town lighthouse from the open area across the way was a surprise, too. We didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to go back!! (Tip: Publix offers free first-time grocery delivery! Best to avoid the madness of Saturday arrival shopping.)

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we stumbled upon this rental for our vacation. We loved the quiet location in Sea Pines with close proximity to South Beach Marina, and of course nearby beach access and view of the sound. The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I hope we can return.

Relaxing and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Everything you need is right there within walking distance. The beach is very close and you can view it from the terrace. There are 4 restaurants within a few feet. Live music every night at The Salty Dog Café. There are also a few shops and a general store for necessities. The pool is nearby although we did not use it. Also bike rentals are nearby. Just an overall nice relaxing vacation.

Fabulous view and location; steps to beach; lovely interior design; everything in top condition

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best condo we have rented in our numerous trips to Sea Pines, especially it's view of the Sound from the open living room, kitchen and dining area. Warm interior colors, very comfortable and more than ample seating in open living room, well equipped kitchen, large bathrooms, large bedrooms with both firm mattresses and pillows, and a delightful open floor plan. Owner responds quickly to inquiries. It has been a pure pleasure. Already looking forward to our return next year.

Amazing Dolphin Viewing

  • 5 of 5

An added bonus to the great view from the balcony and the wonderful sunsets on the beach were watching the dolphins work together to catch fish. This happened almost daily, and sometimes just 5 feet away from the shore. The owners were very responsive and the kitchen was well-appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed every day of our month-long stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your time in our villa. Calibogue Sound really is the best to view the dolphins without having to take a dolphin tour. It would be our pleasure to have you stay in our villa again. Hope to hear from you soon. Fondly, Todd and Kelli
