This villa underwent an extensive renovation in 2009, and additional updating and remodeling was completed, February 2013. New HVAC installed May 2015. Furnishings and decor were chosen by an interior designer to insure our villa would be a welcoming retreat for you, our guests. We work diligently to provide many extras and details, including a 'WELCOME PAIL' with snacks and treats, as well as extra pods for the washing machine and dish washer, so you will experience a vacation to remember. We want this to be a hassle-free, relaxing vacation.

Beautiful hardwood floors are in the hallway, dining and living rooms. New carpet has been placed in the two bedrooms, with tile flooring in both baths and kitchen. You will find a calming place to relax in the newly furnished third floor villa, with spacious living area and vaulted ceilings. A queen sleeper sofa provides additional sleeping. Your indoor entertainment needs will be adequately met with a 52 inch flat screen HDTV with expanded channels and a BluRay DVD player. Cushioned wicker furniture on the balcony is perfect for reflecting on events of the day with flameless lanterns.

The kitchen has been equipped with high-end stainless appliances and numerous kitchen tools and gadgets, wood cabinets with quartz counters, and a stunning mosiac backsplash. The dining room is well-appointed with a new round, glass table with seating for six family members and friends (seating for 2 additional guests are provided at the kitchen bar).

The light and soothing guest bedroom has 2 twin beds with new mattresses and ample storage. A 19 inch flat screen TV and DVD are provided for your enjoyment. The guest bath is beautifully decorated with a new granite counter top and brushed nickel fixtures and accessories.

Do not stress about packing beach chairs or beach toys for your children. You will find those in the villa, along with games, DVDs and books for all ages for a rainy day.

We purchased the villa in late summer of 2012. From then until now, our goal has been to make our villa our home away from home, a relaxing retreat where we could 'UNPLUG' from our busy life styles. We continually replace, update, and change our villa to make it the best it can be. We feel we have adequately accomplished this goal. Now, we earnestly desire for it to become your home away from home, your memorable sanctuary, where you and your family and friends will want to stay and return in the future.

Note: Please contact owner for rental quotes if you are interested in a multiple week stay.

About Gavin and Margie Harrell

We were born in very small town in the foothills of NC. We returned to the town to work and rear our two children. We are now the proud grandparents of 4 precious grandchildren who love to spend time at our villa.

Gavin and Margie Harrell purchased this villa in 2012

Why Gavin and Margie Harrell chose Sea Pines

We vacationed on HHI, for the first time, in the spring 2012. We choose HHI because we are avid bike riders and were attracted to the fact there are over 50 miles of bike trails on the Island. We were unaware of the many, many additional attractions and activities available. As we were riding through Sea Pines, we were astonished over the meticulous, manicured lawns and common areas. We arrived at South Beach Marina and were in awe over the quaint, 'New England like village'. When we walked across the street to the beach, we immediately realized we had discovered a PARADISE! Dolphins were swimming so close to the shoreline, flocks of shore birds filled the sky, and the beach was pristine. The mild climate of the Island provides year around temperatures that are conducive to outdoor activities throughout the year. The tranquil, peaceful atmosphere and perfect weather convinced us we had found a true treasure, a blessing we needed to grasp! In the short time we have owned this property, we have enjoyed every minute of our time here, whether we were riding our bikes on the beach or painting and cleaning in the middle of the night. We firmly believe Bluff Villas and South Beach are the best kept secrets on HHI and Sea Pines. We know you will agree after you have spent a week or more in our villa at this unique, resort area.

What makes this villa unique

This is a spacious third floor villa with high ceilings. The balcony is a perfect spot in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and admire the lovely landscape of Sea Pines. It is wonderful to have so many activities, for all ages, just minutes away.. biking, walking on the beach, tennis, golf, fishing, swimming, horseback riding, playground, paddle boarding, jet skiing, kayaking, excursions for dolphins, Savannah and Dufuskie Island ... the list goes on and on. Even with such a numerous list of activities, this is such a peaceful and quiet area. Just walk across the parking lot and you can choose from several splendid restaurants and relax with outdoor family entertainment. Sunsets are incredible just across the street from the villa. It is so delightful to watch dolphins frolicking in the sound a two minute walk from the villa.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip to HHI...first time staying at this location. The condo was absolutely beautiful, well maintained & well appointed. Great open layout, modern kitchen, updated bathrooms, HD TVs, and spacious bedrooms. Kitchen was fully stocked with amenities and there were also ample beach supplies & toys. The location is wonderful...easy walking distance to Lands End, Salty Dog, and the trolley station. 10 minute drive to Beach Club...15 minutes to town. The owner Margie was responsive & excellent to deal with. We traveled with our 3 year-old daughter, and she loved the venue too. Would comfortably accommodate a family of 4...beyond that may be a little tight. We'll definitely consider staying here again for future visits. Great place to stay.

Three Times a Charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to 1764 Bluff Villa and once again we were delighted with the accommodations. Margie and Gavin have created a truly amazing environment that is not only welcoming but creates an atmosphere that surrounds you with subtle luxuries that make your stay on HHI one that can be reflected upon time and again, making you smile when recounting the memories of each day. Their villa is impeccably maintained and very tastefully decorated with beautiful art pieces and a color scheme that seamlessly blends with the beautiful natural surroundings of HHI. Every thing was perfect, the king sized bed, comfortable furnishings and a well stocked kitchen. The balcony was wonderful for late evening talks over a glass of wine or a cocktail, not to mention the beautiful views of the setting sun. We now consider 1764 Bluff Villa a home away from home and look forward many more visits in the future.

Excellent vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

Great condo in a great location. Extremely well taken care of and appointed. Perfect for a spring break trip with my wife, dughter and one of her friends. Everything is updated and in excellent condition. Great location in Sea Pines. I will have no hesitation to stay here on an other visit to HHI (assuming it is available). Owners are throughtful of the guests and work to make sure they have a great experience.

Better than home

  • 5 of 5

Margie went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. We had a fantastic time at this villa. It was a perfect size for the four of us (even though, it is big enough to accommodate more).

- A few steps away from a clean beach (we watched the sunset and dolphins swim every night as we walked along the beach)

- A trolley station was really close (temporary stop) although the actual trolley stop is not far away either

- across the parking lot to Salty Dog Restaurants, shops, kayak and bike rentals (we took advantage of all of these - including a long bike rides along the trail)

- pool, tennis and a small play ground are also near. We didn't take advantage of these. The pool was closed due to maintenance, which was disappointing but Margie contacted us right away to let us know what was happening and gave us a different option for the pool. How awesome is that?!?

This villa is super CLEAN and so well decorated. Anything essential was there including filtered water from the refrigerator - this was a big thing for us since we are huge water drinkers. Lastly, Margie and Gavin showed us a true southern hospitality even though they were in a different state. We left our bag of toiletries, we contacted her immediately (late at night) and she responded right away. Made calls to different folks and chased down our belongings. She did this such graciously. If you are thinking about renting this place, please take my word, book it! you will NOT regret it. Thank you Margie and Gavin for making our spring break week a memorable one.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Gavin and I are excited you enjoyed your stay at our villa and South Beach. Isn't it exciting watching the dolphins so close to shore? How about those sunsets? Awesome! We try be available for our guests, but if we cannot be reached, we have a 24/7 backup service to lend a helping hand as well, since we reside in NC. We just want to treat our guests as we would like to be treated. Most of all, we are thrilled you returned home with memories of a enjoyable spring vacation. Thanks so much for being our guest.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the condo, Salty Dog and the beach. Everything was nice, clean and a great location. Only bummer was the pool being closed.

Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your vacation , our villa and the super location. We do strive to make certain our villa is maintained in top condition and exceptionally clean. We even employ a company to check on our villa each week in addition to the inspection by the cleaning company. So very sorry the pool was closed. Unfortunately, that was beyond my control. The pool is owned by South Beach Pool, Inc. and not by Bluff Villa Complex. When you told me the pool was closed, I called and was told South Beach Pool (children's area) was being repaired again due to damage from Hurricane Matthew. I inquired and let you know you and your family could purchase a pass for use of the pool at Harbour Town. Good news is... South Beach Pool should be available again in 10 days. Thanks again for being our guest.

If you want to have a great location to vacay........

  • 5 of 5

The property nestled in beside the Salty Dog is quiet, clean and wonderful. The beach access is just across the street. Plenty of parking close to your villa. The villa itself is spacious and again very quiet. You do not hear neighbors through the walls. The villas are well kept outside. We plan on staying again. If you are a fan of Hilton Head, Sea Pines, Salty Dog, tennis, bicycling, walking, relaxing and having a great time...this is the place for you.
