We rented this home for a week at Christmas time for 22 people. Santa even made it down the chimney. The house couldn't have been a better fit. We filled every space but had plenty of space. The gathering space/living room/entry was perfect for our Christmas tree and all the presents. Could have used some warmer sunnier weather on Christmas. The Ping pong table was used so much. During the day, people went separate ways to enjoy the activities of the island--kayaking, zip line, horse back riding,biking, biking on the beach but in the evening, the kitchen and bar were the place to be. The house was well equipped with dishes, large pans etc(did have to time th.e showers because of
a lack of hot water). Great location--close enough to the beach.
Beautiful home and great service from Destination Vacations!

This was the family's 28th Thanksgiving week in Sea Pines and the second time we rented this home. The new owners have made some improvements (the game room; outdoor furniture; bedding, etc) - although it can't be improved much!!!We hope to rent it again next year!

Great place for a golf group or large family gathering. Great kitchen but lacks quality cookware and prep utensils. Could not find a knife sharp enough to slice a turkey. Needs a new grill and patio furniture.
Lovely lagoon view and a short walk to the beach. The home is elegant but comfortable. Read more
Thank you for vacationing at 48 S. Sea Pines! The owner appreciates your constructive feedback and takes it all very seriously.
We are happy to report the Grill has been completely rebuilt with new parts, the patio furniture has been completely replaced with plush furniture, the kitchen knives have all been sharpened and a knife sharpener has been added to the kitchen inventory.
We look forward to your return at 48 S. Sea Pines Drive! Thank you!

Every year we think the same thing...nothing will surpass this home. Well, wrong agin. This home was amazing! Gail E. makes everything prior to the vacation so easy. Our bikes were waiting for everyone on our arrival. The home was spotless - great job housekeeping! When we went to make our first round of frozen drinks, we discovered the base of the blender was cracked and leaking. One quick call to D.V. and a new blender was delivered within 2 hours. Only complaint was we didn't have pool or spa lights the entire week. The repair man thought it was because of a fiber optic bulb. He replaced the bulb but the new one didn't work either. With the beautiful spot lights shining on the palm trees by the pool, we never even missed the pool lights. We had 14 in our party and everyone asked if we could do this again next year. I love D.V. Thanks, Nan McCormick

Murphy Family Reunion 2013
Left on 07/17/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Murphy Family Reunion
This was the perfect house for the 23 people we had coming to spend a week together. We aged from 8 to 71. There was plenty to do for all. Running and biking on the trails and beach to hanging out on the beach and poolside for hours. Every night a different group cooked plenty of space for this. We had many family game nights. Some watched movies in the evening. Very easy to get to South Beach and also to Harbour Town. The only thing I can say about the house that was hard was we had 8 cars and the driveway was a little small. It would be nice if it had a turn around or a u drive. We managed. The layout of the the house was perfect and well maintained. We would definitely stay here in the future. The 2013 Murphy Family Reunion was a huge success. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
This is a perfect place for a large multi-generational family.

We had a wonderful time. The house and location were perfect for everyone, from ages 68 to 6 months.
A calm week to be remembered in paradise!!

Many times I read these reviews and say to myself sure! They probably paid some college kid to write these reviews. All I can say is this review is authentic. The home was just as beautiful in person as the pictures. Great location on the island. Our family group of eleven had more than enough room. We didn't pay the fee to have the pool heated, but the weather was warm enough, for the kids to get in the pool daily. Something as small as not having a dust pan, was resolved within minutes after making a phone call. The management company had a box of delicious cookies waiting for us when we arrived. We had some older ones with us who had restrictions. Therefore the distance from the beach was too far to walk. They primarily wanted to sit around the pool anyway. This is our third time renting a home through Destination Vacation. I'm happy to say that all of our stays have been very pleasant experiences. Read more
Destination Vacation is thrilled this guest had such a wonderful vacation at 48 S. Sea Pines Drive! We agree it is a special home for it's size, condition and location, and we appreciate the time this guest took to post this feedback.
One thing we would like to clarify is the cookies were gifts from the Owners of the home, not the management company. The owners are so appreciative of all guests renting their home, and the cookies were a special way of showing their thanks!

I rented this house to accommodate my extended family of 19 for 5 days in May. We had 6 families coming to Hilton Head for my son's college graduation from Usc-beaufort. This house was perfect for our group! The spaciousness of the living areas gave us great together time and the separation in the bedrooms provided everyone their own quiet place. The weather was horrible for our whole trip - it rained every day! But we didn't care; we sat under the covered porch overlooking the lagoon, watched movies, played games and just had an all-around great time. The weather could have ruined our trip but thanks to this house, it really didn't matter. The house is stocked so well - every appliance we needed was there, and in some cases, there were two. I will definitely check on renting this place again!

We've been renting accomodations in Sea Pines for Thanksgiving week for 26 years. As the family grew we needed a larger place and this beautiful house certainly fit the bill for the 20 of us who gathered here.
There was plenty of room for all and the "kids" just loved that media roomm.
The kitchen is "to die for".
Only complaint came from my single daughter who just couldn't find the Butler in the Butler's pantry!
We already booked it again for 2013!

We very much enjoyed our stay at 48 S. Sea Pines Drive in March. The house is beautiful and huge! There were three families totalling 16 people and we never felt crowded...even in at mealtimes :) The master bedrooms were situated so that each couple felt they had privacy and a quiet retreat. Only a few conplaints...the dishwashers do not work well - we had several handymen in our group who worked on them (there's 2) almost daily to keep them getting dishes clean. Also, when we arrived the garberator wasn't working - we just didn't use it for the week. Lastly, the main floor bath's door was coming off it's hinges. The issues weren't huge but unexpected in a home this large, beautiful and expensive! We did love that we were close to the beach and also enjoyed the pool. When we first saw the pool, we thought it was too small but it ended up being just fine for our group. Read more

Every couple of years we host our children, grandchildren and parents in Hilton Head for a family reunion. This was a great house for the ages of the children, and the size and comfort were truly wonderful and relaxing. Thank you!

The home was lovely. The house had just enough space for our needs. It would have been nice if the Tv's in the bedrooms were upgraded to flat screens.
A Great Family Experience
Left on 06/09/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | James W.
Our extended family of 17 stayed here the week of Memorial Day and had a great experience. The home was just the right size and having all the main living areas on the first floor was an advantage.(ie less stair climbing and better able to watch young children) The home was in excellent condition and convenient to the beach (2 blocks) and bike paths. The driveway is on a curve with limited visibility, so caution is required when exiting. There is plenty of room for multiple cars and access to a garage for bicycles. Sea Pines is our favorite resort and we have had time share here since 1978. The management company was responsive on any items that needed attention. They even shipped two items to me that inadvertently got left behind.

This was a fantastic house and we had a great vacation. It was amazing.
We had just two minor issues when we there.
1. The Spa/hot tub broke down and was never fixed (maintenance staff did try muliple times), approx. 4 days not working.
2. The second issue was all the bugs, not sure why there are no screen doors or screens on windows. Should probably warn people to keep doors and windows closed at all times. Read more
Destination Vacation is thrilled this guest chose 48 S. Sea Pines Drive for their vacation in June 2011. We apologize for the spa issues, but we are happy to report a new owner has purchased this property and made all necessary repairs to the spa and pool area. In addition, a fully operational game room has been added in the garage and other interior upgrades have been made with new flat screen TV's and other amenities. We hope you return to this beautiful property as it is in its best condition in years!

We had such a wonderful time at this house. Beautiful exterior, amazing interior, decor and furnishings were top notch, amenities were awesome, kitchen was fully equipped, and the lagoon view was beautiful - we got some great family pictures! The experience was perfect for a family. The only thing that would have made it better would have been oceanfront, but even that was ok as the lagoon made up for it and the walk was minimal. Service at Destination Vacation was extraordinary - good communication, response times were quick and helpful, amenities that they provided were excellent, cleaning services were perfect. I have absolutely no complaints and only wonderful things to say about our experience.
Fabulous family house!!

The house was perfect and in a great location. It was a wonderful very very relaxing vacation!!!!! The only downfall was the rain which we knew might happen since it was the second week in August.
