About Clara Hilgefort

We live in KY, right outside of Cincinnati, OH. We own 2 homes in Hilton Head that are professionally maintained and supervised.

We provide what we'd want in our home to be comfortable. We feature multiple refrigerators and a fully stocked kitchen. You have access to our 2 car garage for your convenience.

We're happy to provide a list of favorite restaurants and things to do.

Clara Hilgefort purchased this house in 2005

Why Clara Hilgefort chose Island Areas

We love Sea Pines and being able to bike to Harbour Town and South Beach on the bike paths. The nature preserve is an undiscovered gem. The golf courses are beautiful and challenging. Sea Pines is just a special place.

What makes this house unique

Our home is pet-friendly and located on the beach side of Sea Pines Drive, with no streets to cross to get to the beach. It is located only 1 mile from Harbour Town or South Beach. We heat the hot tub heat for free.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Great value, with plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 kids (and we didn't use one bedroom). Very close to the beach and Sea Pines is a beautiful part of the island. The beds are quite firm, but we like firm beds. The pool and hot tub were great, but bring bug spray. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook and had nice appliances--the only thing missing was an ice cream scoop, so we gifted one to the house. Only issues were a very few roaches and the bathrooms are showing some wear. But for the location and price, this place was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments and the ice cream scoop :-) As things break or disappear, we try to replace them promptly so the kitchen is always stocked. Sorry for the pesty Palmetto bugs that sneaked in. They are common in Beaufort County because of the warm, humid climate and lush vegetation. We have a pest control program that includes perimeter treatments and quarterly indoor fumigation to keep them out. It's a never ending battle!

Our Southern Vacation Adventure!

  • 3 of 5

We (6 adults and 4 kids) stayed in this home in Hilton Head Sea Pines on 6/20-6/27. The home owner, Clara, was very wonderful to work with and answered all our questions. Unfortunately when we arrived on 6/20 the AC was not functioning as expected therefore the home was extremely warm in late June! We also found the hot tub was not cleaned and full of leaves in it. We called the owner which she tried to remediated however the service couldn't arrive until late Sunday night (as he was out of town) to temporary remediate the AC issue and the pool guy came two days later however the hot tub had bad motor and circuit breaker issues. We couldn't use the hot tub for our entire stay. The owner did apologized for the issues and offered us a small discount for our rental.

The home is nice and is about 5 mins walk to the beach and had almost everything we needed for our stay, i.e. shampoo, conditioner, toilet papers, cooking utensils, etc... There are a few minor issues we encountered: ensure shampoo is refilled in all bathrooms, provide some spices for use, vent is very slow flowing in the bedroom with two double beds, and the light switch is broken in the second master guest room with the canopy bed. The home location is about 50 minutes and easy access to the Savannah Historic and was wonderful to visit the Bluffton town for fresh seafood. We rated a 3.5 stars due to all the issues we encountered however overall enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are glad that our guests enjoyed their stay. We do everything possible to make every family feel at home and include items that other rental homes in Sea Pines don't, such as free use of the hot tub, plenty of toiletries (both hotel-size as well as shower-mounted dispensers), free unlimited supply of propane for the grill, and car passes. We always welcome suggestions on what else we can do to make everyone's stay great. Unfortunately, as in any home, there are occasional malfunctions which we address as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Great home for large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family week at this lovely home! We had 3 married daughters, my husband and I, and 2 grandsons. The boys, 9 and 11, were cozy in the den on the day bed and trundle. They could run across the Carolina room to their parent's king bedroom and bath. The house is well equipped and clean. There was plenty of room to spread out and find a quiet space to read, while others watched TV. The street is quiet and the walk to the

beach is 5 min. There were a few minor things to fix and after I notified Clara, the nice handyman was there promptly. Thank you Jim and Clara for sharing your lovely house and being so nice to work with. I highly recommend this house! We have been going to Hilton Head for 25 years and this is one of our favorites.

Our Favorite Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Sea Pines, HHI each summer for 27 years. As our family has grown we have stayed in townhouses, condo, and homes all over sea pines. Five years ago my sisters and I found 8 Surf Scoter. This quiet street is on a wonderful stretch of beach. No crazy Beach Club crowds. An easy walk to the ocean with all your towels and beach games. No need to get in a car! Easy bike ride to tennis, South Beach, and Harbortown. We rent several houses on the street for our 30+ family members. But 8 Surf Scoter is a treat. Plenty of room for everyone to get a good nights sleep. Lovely, comfortable beach home well maintained and fully stocked. We look forward to returning next summer…just don't rent it the week we want it!

Perfect House for Multiple Families

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to HHI four summers now. This was our favorite house by far. We had my family of 4, my sister's family of 5, and my parents and we had plenty of room. We had a very short walk to the beach and we were completely comfortable allowing our young teens to come and go from the beach. The pool was kept very clean throughout our week. I highly recommend renting bikes as South Beach and Harbour Town was about an easy 1 1/2 mile ride. Our teens thoroughly enjoyed the pool and foosball table. We will definitely stay here again!
