Meticulously Kept Sea Pines Home with Panoramic Water Views

Bedrooms 3
Space 241 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 'home away from home' is located at the southern tip of Hilton Head Island, in a quiet neighborhood of Sea Pines Plantation. Sea Pines is the Island's largest resort and is skirted by 5 miles of beautiful beaches and contains acres of forest preserves and miles of bike trails. Sea Pines hosts the PGA Tour's Heritage of Golf tournament every year in April.

Our home is conveniently located for that perfect vacation get-away. A short bike ride (one mile) takes you to Harbour Town Golf Links, the Harbour Town Yacht Club, or Sea Pines beaches (two miles). This allows visitors to be near it all yet be able to retreat back to a quiet private neighborhood home to relax.

The home offers a panoramic lagoon view with deck access from the master bedroom, great room, and kitchen. It is tastefully decorated with tradtional furnishings. There is a private community swimming pool and tennis courts available for use (located only a 2 minute walk away!).

We take great pride in updating our home and adding new amenities each year for our guests enjoyment. There is nothing worse than renting a vacation home and being disappointed. We use VRBO ourselves when we vacation so we truly understand the importance of making a good impression and exceeding expectations.

Our goal is to make sure you enjoy our home as much as we do!

About John Gugle

We are the Gugle family from Waxhaw, North Carolina, which is located close to Charlotte. My wife and I have four children, ages ranging from 16 to 11 years old and they all love Hilton Head!

John Gugle purchased this house in 1999

Why John Gugle chose Hilton Head

We have been big fans of Hilton Head for many years. We were married in Hilton Head in 1994. My wife's parents live year round in Hilton Head. We bought our home in 1999 because we wanted a vacation property located near family. When we first saw our home, we absolutely fell in love with the breathtaking water view from the back deck and how bright and airy it is inside. The tranquility of the scenery captured us at first and with each passing season we gain a greater appreciation for the natural setting and wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Our home is an oasis of natural beauty and peacefulness in an otherwise busy community (Sea Pines). We like the fact that you can get away from the crowds and have your own slice of peace and quiet even when it is crowded in the summer. We have a private community pool and tennis courts a short distance from our home. We can walk (20 min) to the Harbor Town Lighthouse and the marina. We have shopping and restaurants located within one mile. Our home gives us and our guests a place to get away from it all and yet be close enough to everything you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been renting this house for the past few winters & were somewhat surprised to read the last review. The extensive hurricane damage a few months ago made skilled contractors & repairmen very difficult to engage but all the problems mentioned have been corrected. Everything works & works well & not a single deficiency exists to detract from the beauty of the house & its location. We're coming back next year!

Delightful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house was delightful and so comfortable. Every bed was comfy, the living room promoted relaxation, and the deck was amazing each evening at sunset. The lagoon outback was a marvelous touch for each of us, especially the alligators swimming by. An added touch was being able to park the car in a garage rather than in the sun. The kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed Hilton Head and Savannah, and even took the trip to Daufuskie Island. There is always an adventure to enjoy.

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

We are grateful for this time together, as a family, to play and relax! Your home is beautifully appointed, well equipped, and perfect for us!

We enjoyed being in close proximity to the pool and tennis courts...loved playing tennis! Riding bikes to the beach, to Harbour Town, and along the trails was not only great exercise but was most pleasurable!

It's simply beautiful here! We love the view of the lagoon and we did see two alligators...thankfully from the safety of the deck!! Thank you for sharing your home with us and for paying attention to those little details that make anyone's stay extra special! We felt welcomed!

Looking forward to visiting again -

Very spacious home. Well appointed, very clean and tastefully decorated. Great for family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing get away with biking, great restaurants, and many activities to choose from. The deck view is beautiful with the occasional blue heron and calls from many different birds each day. The kitchen is very well appointed. The home was spotless on our arrival. And with the new washer and dryer we new we didn't have to over pack for our trip. Home owner was very responsive to our pre stay questions. And the owners father stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed all the while respecting our privacy. He left us feeling confident that any issues would be taken care of immediately! (Although we had no problems with owners or property!) we look forward to our next visit to the island.

Had a wonderful time but the house needs some things fixed.

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and in a wonderful location! Everything was clean but unfortunately not everything was working properly.

The bedroom at the top of the stairs had no power to it. Nothing worked including the lights, fan and all outlets. There was an extension cord running from the other bedroom into this room so the light could be plugged in. Very inconvenient for my 70 year old mother to have no tv and only 1 light that she had to get out of bed to turn on. We ended up switching rooms half way through our stay to make her more comfortable. Also the closet in the 3rd bedroom had no working lights and the shower head was literally held on by tape.

Everything else was perfect. Beautiful updated kitchen. Beds were comfy and clean. Gorgeous back deck overlooking the lake. Large living room was very comfy for everyone. We would definitely stay here again, if the issues were addressed.

Owner's Response: We sincerely regret that your stay in our home fell short of your expectations. We strive very hard as noted by many past guests to keep our home to the highest of standards and fully operational. As a result of Hurricane Matthew we have experienced a wiring issue isolated to the third bedroom. We have had an electrician out twice to identify the cause of the problem and fix it. That is why we ran an extension cord into that bedroom in an attempt to temporarily provide electricity while the issue is being resolved. As for the shower head, we are in the process of replacing that as well - prior guests had accidentally ripped it out of the wall. Due to the recent hurricane, please understand that it has been exceptionally difficult to secure contract workers on short notice. Of course that is certainly not your problem and in no way an excuse for a less than perfect vacation experience. If you are open to it, we would like to extend a discount for a future stay to make up for the inconvenience caused to you and your family.

Great Property!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first family vacation on Hilton Head. We enjoyed our time there tremendously in large part due to the wonderful home we rented. It was clean, in great proximity to everything in Sea Pines, peaceful and private.
