1603 PORT VILLAS, SEA PINES
HILTON HEAD ISLAND
My villa is located in the “big toe” of Hilton Head Island. It is in a quiet area of villas located at the end of Braddock’s Cove, next to South Beach Marina Village, and across the street from a beautiful stretch of beach on the Atlantic Ocean.
This area is sought after because of its convenient location to the amenities of the Marina Village (shops, restaurants, outdoor bar, fishing charters, water sports and the famous Salty Dog Café), and because of its proximity to the beach. South Beach Tennis is one block away, and two great Sea Pines golf courses are about two miles from the villa. We have ocean on one side, and intercoastal waterway on the other. The villa overlooks Braddock’s Cove, an inlet from Calibogue Sound which leads to the Atlantic. Dolphin, Pelicans, Great Heron, Osprey and Marsh Hawks frequent the area, along with an occasional alligator visit. From my porch you can see the dolphin put on quite a show, swirling and diving for their meals.
Some of the greatest spot tail bass (redfish) and sea trout fishing on the island can be had right off of our dock (just ask the tournament fishermen on the island!). Crabbing is also plentiful. Our group of 11 villas owns the dock that is just outside my door, and there is no extra cost to have a boat here during your visit. This is a tremendous savings for a boat owner, as slip rental elsewhere on the island is quite expensive. From our dock, it only takes about 10 minutes to get to the ocean by boat.
My villa is a desirable end unit. There is a small porch to one side of the villa, and a small balcony off of the master bedroom (what a view when you wake in the morning!). The best is a large covered porch overlooking the cove. Enjoy your morning coffee and complimentary Island Packet newspaper, or have evening cocktails and dinner while watching the action in the cove.
A pool pass is provided for access to our community pool at the Marina, but most visitors like to walk across the street to the beach.
I have a one-person kayak that you are welcome to use during your visit. Bike rental is a few blocks away at the Marina. There are miles and miles of bike trails on the island and you can get on one a block from my house.
