Beachwalk Cottage: Your Beachside Haven
Hilton Head Island is all about the beach, and what better way to experience it than by staying at Beachwalk Cottage?
This four-bedroom and four-bathroom beauty recently got a makeover that’s left it full of charm and modern comfort. As a second-row home, the beach path is practically your neighbor as it’s just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Hilton Head shores.
If that’s not enough of a reason for you to book your stay, picture this. In the front yard lies a luxurious pool that can be heated. It is a sunny delight, measuring 14 feet wide and 25 feet long. There’s even an in-pool tanning ledge for sunbathing or a safe spot for the little ones. It’s the perfect spot to soak up some sun surrounded by lush tropical greenery. The soothing sound of the ocean is your backdrop while you grill up dinner in the outdoor kitchen.
Now, let’s talk about bedrooms. The first guest room is on the ground level and boasts a king-size bed and a private bathroom. The master bedroom is on the second level with its own balcony overlooking the pool, king-sized bed, and a bathroom with double sinks, a tub, and a tile shower. The second guest room is also on the second level and has another king-size bed and a private bathroom. Right across the hall from the master, you’ll find the final guest room, with yet another king-size bed, a walk-in closet, and a private bathroom.
If you’re traveling with a larger group, the downstairs living room has a queen sleeper sofa for extra guests.
Dream Catcher: Where Your Serene Beachside Dreams Become a Reality
For those who crave rest and leisure, look no further than “Dream Catcher.” This two-story, second-row vacation home comes complete with a pool and spa. Plus, it’s just a minute’s stroll from the pristine Hilton Head beaches.
Upon entry, you’ll find the downstairs bedroom on your right, offering a comfortable queen-size bed, ample closet space, and a TV. Right across the short hallway is the guest bathroom, equipped with a tub-shower combo, single sink, and toilet. If you continue down the hallway, you’ll discover the door leading to the two-car carport, where you’ll find the laundry room closet, complete with a side-by-side washer and dryer, and a utility sink.
On the same floor, the spacious downstairs sitting room stretches from the front to the back of the house. Sliding doors lead to either the covered patio in the front or the pool deck in the back. In this room, you’ll find two cozy sofas, a TV, a gaming/eating table with chairs, and a convenient wet bar for making your favorite vacation beverages.
Atop the stairwell, a hallway to the right leads to the bedrooms. The first room on the right as you head down the hallway features two twin beds, a desk, a small closet, and a TV. This bedroom shares a bathroom with the next guest bedroom across the hall.
The shared bathroom has hallway access and offers a single sink, tile shower, and toilet. The bedroom across the hall boasts a king-size bed, a standard-size closet, a TV, and a private entrance to the shared bathroom.
Driftwood: A Timeless Beach Gem
Driftwood’s charm lies in its ability to balance the old with the new. It recently underwent a major renovation that preserved its original character while enhancing the areas that vacationers appreciate the most. The new finishes include newly exposed and refinished original oak floors, new tile showers in all bathrooms, fresh paint inside and out, and a mix of sentimental artwork alongside modern décor. All these elements come together to create a unique “retro beach” vibe.
On the ground level, you’ll find a spacious sitting/game area with trendy terrazzo floors, seating, a game table, a TV, and a collection of board games. This level contains one of the four bedrooms — featuring a comfy queen-size bed — and a renovated bathroom with a beautiful tile shower.
The remaining three bedrooms are on the second level, including a master bedroom with a king-size bed and access to the upper-level deck, another guest room with a queen bed, and one with two twin beds. They all share renovated bathrooms with gorgeous tile showers. Original oak floors span the entire second level, adding to the beach house’s retro charm.
While there’s no private pool, guests have free access to the South Beach Marina pool just a quarter mile away. Also, being second row means there’s only one house between you and the famous Hilton Head beaches.
Peek-of-Blue: A Slice of Southern Charm
