As a REALTOR® with 18 years of experience assisting buyers and sellers achieve their dreams I can tell you, on Hilton Head Island it's all about the lifestyle! My husband, daughter and I have lived in the Club Course section of Sea Pines since 2003. Sea Pines offers miles of beach and miles of biking as well as world class golf, tennis, dining and shopping. We often join friends to watch the sunset at the "owners beach" at Tower Beach, ride bikes to Harbour Town for ice cream and visit the Salty Dog to watch college football at their outdoor bar (Go Hokies!)
Whether you want to spend your time golfing, biking, playing tennis, or walking on the beach, there is something here for you. Maybe you enjoy the arts community and want to spend time photographing or painting nature, or you enjoy the music scene, there's music playing here almost every night, and, oh my goodness, then there's the food, with over 250 restaurants there's always a new one to try! Looking for intellectual pursuits, check out the Osher Lifelong Learning Center at USCB, the Lowcountry Civil War Roundtable or the World Affairs Council of Hilton Head. Hilton Head Island and Bluffton are vibrant communities and there are many great charitable organizations if you are interested in volunteering.
I would love to help you discover Hilton Head Island, call me for my famous "nickel tour" of the island communities.
