Turtle Nest - centrally located close to the beach, Harbour Town, South Beach

Romantic Hilton Head Island vacation home in Sea Pines, near South Forest Beach
Beautiful vacation home in the convenient Sea Pines neighborhood of Baynard Cove / Heritage Woods. You're a 5-7 minute bike ride or leisurely stroll to the beach.

The cozy front courtyard welcomes you with a wrought-iron gate and brick half-fence, setting the stage for the perfect combination of homey tranquility and hospitality within the home. Turtle Nest, located on Baynard Cove Road, welcomes you to the very heart of Sea Pines and the island's best beaches. The living room, encircled with glass for a panoramic view of the wooded patio and private backyard, provides the perfect venue for unwinding and opening a bottle of conversation. A generous sectional sofa, lushly overstuffed chairs and a wide brick hearth provide the perfect setting for an evening with family and friends, while the central fireplace and tall exposed-beam ceilings provide an air of rustic relaxation.

When the evening turns to entertaining, the party will naturally gravitate to the kitchen, where stainless steel appliances and a glasstop GE Profile range set in a spacious center island provide the perfect tools for a delicious evening. A tastefully appointed, Southern-inspired dining area spans just beyond the kitchen, with a full view of the wide living area and the same lush wooded views that dominate the main open space.

But why stay inside when the wide outdoor patio beckons with its wooded isolation and sparkling pool? An outdoor kitchen complete with top-of-the-line Lynx ProSear infrared grill and warming tray gives the grillmaster everything they need to feed hungry guests, while ample space for conversation and outdoor stereo keep the party moving along.

At the end of the day, this home doesn’t disappoint when it comes to guest quarters. A cozy bedroom set off the kitchen enjoys its own private door out to the patio, while bringing coastal style inside with high ceilings and eye-catching wide wood panel walls and flat screen TV. An en suite bath offers a double-sink granite-topped vanity and a luxuriant walk-in shower. Three more bedrooms each with its own TV, share a quiet hallway winding away from the main living space, with two enjoying private en suite baths. Those who dream of spending their vacation pampered in their own private spa will definitely want to claim the bedroom on the right, as its en suite boasts its own garden tub and rain shower in a magnificently spacious en suite.

The third bedroom was definitely designed with the kids in mind. Featuring a twin-over-queen bunkbed and convertible sofa gathered around a coastal-inspired entertainment area, this room holds the promise of vacation sleepovers spent staying up way past bedtime. And when it comes time to venture out into the resort, this property is ideally situated right in the heart of some of Sea Pines premiere attractions — just a short hop to either Harbour Town or South Beach. From the moment you arrive until the moment the evening’s entertainments finally end, this home was tailor-made for the vacationing family that wants to balance time away with time together.

Don't miss your chance to stay in this beautifully appointed home with over 2,700 square feet of living space, and your own private pool featuring over 1,500 square feet of decking and a fantastic lanai and bar featuring a built in gas barbecue grill and warming drawer, which is great for outdoor entertaining. The pool gets full sun from mid-morning to mid afternoon, a rarity for most pools in Sea Pines.

Great stay!
Great stay. Beautiful home, even better than the pictures. Great location in the Sea Pines resort. Pool area would be nice in warmer weather. Bikes were nice for our family to ride, and the baby seat and a mule cart were very convenient. 5 minute bike ride to the beach was really nice. Property managers were super responsive. Would definitely recommend staying here.

3/5 Okay

beautiful property.
Nice property. agents quick to try to get any issues resolved. Needs a little work on some areas but overall very nice. Kitchen has a great stock of dishes, glasses etc. Could use a few more pieces of silverware nd some new sharp knives but otherwise fully stocked.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous Place With Everything
The house was even more gorgeous in person. We had an amazing stay. The property is closely located to anything you want to do. The pool is heavily shaded so it’s perfect for the summer. If anyone does the wine puzzle, all the pieces are there even though you’ll swear they aren’t. We cooked a ton of meals and there was everything you could possibly need to include the world's heaviest bottle opener. The screened in porch is the best place to spend the evenings relaxing and drinking wine.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful house and neighborhood

Great home and pool
We just returned from a week at this property with my husband, myself, 3 teens and our small dog. The home was very spacious and laid out well. There were bikes in the garage that the kids used to get all around sea pines and down to the beach. It took about 5 min on bike and 20 min by foot to get to the beach. Overall the house was clean, in good condition, and the location was private and convenient. We all enjoyed the pool and pool toys. Washer and dryer worked and the kitchen was well stocked as was the laundry/cleaning supplies. Management company was extremely responsive to a few minor issues and they were resolved promptly. Minor complaints - the bedroom off the kitchen gets quite warm with the door closed at night compared to the rest of the house. And the mattress in that bedroom could be replaced, but passable for a teen. We wish the seating in the family room was more comfortable. A bigger couch would have been much better given the number of people the house can accommodate. Also the chairs could use ottomans for propping feet.
