**** Frequently Asked Questions ****

What arrangements are made to pick up a key? Our home is equipped with an electronic 'keyless' entry system that is programmed with a code of your choice. This makes it very convenient for our guests as they do not have to worry about getting locked out, or losing a key.

Does your pool get any direct sun as many of the homes we've stayed in within Sea Pines, well their pools are too shaded? Yes, the pool gets direct sun light from mid-morning to mid afternoon. Summer pool temps generally range from 85 - 88 degrees. Many of our guests share that they really enjoy coming back to the house and having the pool there after a day at the beach!

What if there is an issue while we are staying at your house? Our home has been professionally managed by an on-island company for the past several years. All issues are quickly addressed with minimal disruption to your vacation. So, you never need to worry about trying to contact the owner to report a problem and work with an absentee owner to help them address the issue.

Where can we rent bikes and how much does it cost? As mentioned above, feel free to use our 6 adult 26 inch bikes, bike cart, or use one of the many bike rental companies on the island. I'll be glad to provide you with recommended companies should you decide to not use our bikes, or should you need more. And our home is conveniently located right on one of the many bike paths that take you all over the plantation.

How close are you to the beach? Under 7 minutes by bike, or an enjoyable 10 minute stroll. See the map below.

Are you close to Harbour Town and South Beach? Yes, and we bike to both. The home is just about equal distance to both; it's about a 10 minute bike ride, or 5 minutes by car.

What size is the house? The two level home is over 3,500 square feet. There are two large "master" bedrooms on one side of the house, each with private baths and two bedrooms on the other side of the house, each with their own private baths. All bedrooms have ample closet and storage space.

Is your home for sale and could we have our vacation interrupted by an agent wanting to show the house? No, our home is not for sale. We do caution prospective guests that are looking at other properties to check with the owner or manager to insure that the property they are considering is not for sale, or that they will not have their vacation interrupted by agents wanting to show the home!

Do you offer discounts? If your arrival date is 30 days or less away and our home is available, we will certainly work with you.

Do we add cleaning fees to your listed prices? No, the published fee includes the departure cleaning fee. The only other fees are South Carolina Accommodation and City of Hilton Head Island taxes totaling 10%, and the optional fee to heat the pool and / or spa.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Hilton Head at Heron Island Time! It was the perfect house for our family of 10 (6 adults, 4 kids). The bikes and cart were a wonderful way to get to and from the beach. The house, and especially the kitchen, were very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool and hot tub were great after a day at the beach. Great location within Sea Pines and we loved riding the bikes all over the island. Would definitely consider staying here again next time we visit HHI.

Extended Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. The living space was perfect. I especially liked having the upper area as a family suite. Having the bicycles was a bonus and the pool was a nice addition to play and cool down after beach time.

Great Week at Heron Island time

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time our family has stayed at this property. It is clean and spacious for our family of 11. The property is located in a great spot in between Harbor Town and Salty dog. Our family spent a lot of time riding bikes and it is a plus that bikes are provided for the week. The pool is a nice size and we love to hang out there. The kitchen has lots of pots, pans, and dishes which is a plus since we eat in a lot. Kerry is great to work with and responded to any questions that I had promptly. We love this house and will stay here again.

One of the best homes we ever stayed at in Sea Pines! This home was absolutely beautiful and had everything you could ever need on vacation. Not to mention the seven bikes that come with the house and easy access to the beach, Harbor Town and South Beach. We will defiantly be back!
