Year Purchased: 1974
About: We are the original owners of this lovely villa and we spent many wonderful vacations in Sea Pines, watching the Family Circle Cup Tennis tournament and listening to Todd Ballantine share ecological tidbits about the Island. We know first hand how the plantation grew into what it has become today. On a recent visit this winter, I noticed many upgrades in the physical landscape-new plantings, more open spaces, better lighting. New top notch facilities all over Sea Pines have been opened for tourists visiting since the 2014 season. The Resort maintains it's safe, comfortable low-key surroundings in spite of the modern forthcoming additions.
Why Sea Pines, Hilton Head Island, SC, USA:
We are currently renting and will one day be able to enjoy more time there during our retirement. Frequent visits.allow us to monitor the condition of the home's many offerings. We appreciate guests who respect our property and recognize the care that goes into upkeep.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The view from the master bedroom has always conjured images of a truly satisfying vacation-the tennis whites and numerous trees in the backyard. The little patio in back was forever conducive to quality socializing. Back in the day, concerts were performed by Hargray on the tennis court behind the villa, making free entertainment a bonus of this particular dwelling for several years. You really cannot beat the prime location. It is within a short walking distance to Harbour town and Sea Pines Center.
