About the Owner

Born and raised in Newport, RI, the ocean has always been special to me. Whether sailing rails-in, fishing from the shore, surfing in the waves or just skimming rocks on the water, many pleasant memories were made there. When I moved to the south and met my wife Kathryn, we both longed for a getaway near the water. That's when we discovered Hilton Head Island. We've always loved vacationing in Sea Pines and after many pleasant stays, we finally decided to purchase a home. We truly are excited about Tupelo Honey and are looking forward to others enjoying all it has to offer.

This is our second winter in Tupelo Honey. John has added improvements that help make it feel like home.
This is one of the best stocked kitchens in all our years of renting. We like to cook and the selection of pots and pans is fantastic. The shower in the master bath is my favorite----I'm just sorry we can't come back next winter.

Simply the Best for your family

  • 5 of 5
My wife and myself have been renting on Hilton Head for the past 11 years and have found Tupelo Honey to be Simlpy the Best. John, the owner could not be more hospitable and easy to reach. The home is well decorated and has all that you could want in a vacation home,from very comfortable beds to an excellent stocked kitchen with all the utensils for your dinning pleasures. The second refrigerator was perfect to stock with all your needs. The home is centered in Seapines,the nicest of the islands communities,so visiting restaurants to riding bikes or stables and of course the beach is easily accessible. The pool is large and the deck was spacious. The large master bath was exceptional with a huge shower. We were there for less than a week and reserved Tupelo Honey for the next year.

Family Time all ten of us!

  • 5 of 5
Tupelo Honey was a very clean, well organized, enjoyable getaway. Our family hadn't been together for a complete week in 9 years. We utilized everything the property had to offer. The grill, the extra refrigerator, the sun porch, the awesome shower in the master bedroom. Having the bikes there saved us money and the beach chairs that go with the house are top of the line. WIFI was really good and the owner was very cooperative with any questions we had. The bike trails near the house are awesome. One will take you to the new Beach Club in Sea Pines in just a few minutes. One of our favorite things was getting caught in the rain on the bikes, it was so much fun! We had some rain showers the week we were there but they didn't slow us down. We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay. This is a great house for a family.....ten of us enjoyed it without complaint, you won't be sorry if you give it a try!

From the Owner

This isn't a 'rental property' to us - it's our home! We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a special place, with all the amenities you'd expect in a resort home, along with the charm and comfort of a true 'beach' house. As you can see in the pictures - our recent renovations, along with the open floor plan, will keep you comfortable and connected with family and the outdoors. Imagine sitting at the dining room table, or on the screened porch, and having a fabulous view of the birds or the pool. Some evenings you will see deer slowly work their way through the area and disappear into the woodland area behind our home. We looked at many homes in the area before we purchased this house and began its' transformation into Tupelo Honey. You won't find a cleaner, more relaxed, open and fun house in the area.
