We stayed at 12 Surf Scoter on our most recent visit to Hilton Head. We always choose a house in Sea Pines that is near the beach. We have 3 families (total of 10 with 4 kids) so we enjoy being in Sea Pines, having a pool at the house and proximity to the beach. This is a 4 br, so we put all the kids in one room.
This house worked very well for us. The pool area was especially nice with waterfalls in the pool and a spa attached. We had the pool heated to be safe and it was comfortable all week.
The screened in porch was also a great hit. We spent most of our time there when at the house and the furniture was very nice and there was plenty of room for everyone.
No complaints about the house. It seemed to be well taken care of. We did have a problem with the ice maker and had to buy ice for the week ,but the rental company reimbursed us for that.
We did have to walk down the street to get to the beach path (we're used to being a bit closer), but from there it was a short walk to the beach.
Location is good for biking, except you do have to cross the main road when coming out to get on the bike trail across the street. Nice rides to Salty Dog, Harbour Town, Lawton Stables from here.
All in all we were pleased with 12 Surf Scoter.- Ronnie M. from Mt Olive, Posted: 06/11/2018
Great experience! We love Hilton Head and we love this home. Thank you to Seat Turtle Getaways as well for always being so accommodating to us!- Elizabeth H. from Dublin, Posted: 07/17/2017
House was very comfortable, especially the screened in porch. The only thing I would change would be a more convienent access to the pool area. We called about a shortage of cups and that afternoon a lady brought us 8 brand new mugs.- David K. from The Villages, Posted: 09/26/2016
There were few reviews available for this house so I though I would drop a note. We had 5 adults, three kids ages 5 and under all stay very comfortably. Bedrooms were very nicely done. Large TV in living area as well as all bedrooms. Bathrooms all modern appearing, nice tile work. Kitchen was good size, loved the washer/dryer. Spent most of our time at the pool, teaching kids to swim. We all had a good time. There are toys to play with and there were two beach chairs available. You can buy more locally or rent if you like. Outdoor shower at side of house with additional entrance. 5 min walk to the beach, most of the time walked barefoot. Beach was nice, very warm water in August. Pool has shade in AM which was nice, warmer in the afternoon. One table available with tent for shade. We brought another cheap umbrella for second table and needed this to keep the kids in the shade.
Two blocks from a nice bike path, 5 min.
5 to 10 min from harris teeter or Publix
Bring some beach towels/pool towels and apple/fruit peeler
--would definately not heat the spa in the summer. It overflows into the pool and you will cook
Need to place a password on the wifi (unwise to check email with open connection).- tim g. from burlington, Posted: 08/22/2016
everything went well except for the party in the area.
This is a popular property that has been used nonstop, but it needs a deep cleaning. it appears no one has even dusted for 6 months.- Larry F. from Keswick, Posted: 08/01/2016
We had a wonderful time. Every problem we had was solved quickly. The house was put together somewhat strangely, in that you couldn't get to the pool from the back of the house???? Also, there apparently was no insulation between the floors. Just walking upstairs sounded like someone was pounding on the floor. The location was great and so were the Sea Turtle staff.- Anonymous from Lebanon Junction, Posted: 06/17/2020
We have stayed at this property six times, the first time in 1995. The most recent in August 2016. We have stayed elsewhere in Seapines, but find 12 Surf Scoter fits our needs best.
Located near the beach and away from the busy Harbour Town traffic it is an ideal property to enjoy the tranquility of the area. It is an easy walk to the beach (marker 26) and bike ride to South Beach. The property itself is nicely appointed with a large living area on the second floor. Two bedrooms up and two down. A large screened porch on the second floor is ideal for sitting and enjoying the outdoors.
The pool and whirlpool were installed about two years ago and are one of the nicest pools in the area. Large enough for six adults and four children. The pool is located on the opposite side of the house from the entrance.
We will return to this property.- Bruce S. from Independence, Posted: 08/09/2016
The six of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is large enough to spread out and have privacy and the also provided lots of space to come together. We cooked and used the grill a few nights and found the kitchen to be adequately stocked for our needs. Great location for accessing the beach and hitting the bike trails.
We would come back and recommend to our friends.- Valerie H. from Las Cruces, Posted: 05/08/2018
Loved this house, 4 couples each with our own bedroom and bathroom, walking distance to beach, perfect weather, grocery store very close, and shopping, pool and hot tub what more do you need? Home was clean and well kept. Could use instructions for hot tub, and air conditioning.- Lynn G. from East Jordan, Posted: 05/14/2018
We rented this home in August 2018, and overall we had a good experience. Everything worked, and we had everything we needed. Our only complaints were the overall layout of the home, which we understand isn't anyone's fault. IT just didn't work well with 2 young children. Additionally, cleanliness of the home was not that great either. The home needs some renovation, and we found lots of bugs and roaches. The best part of this home was the screened in porch. The furnishings are pretty good overall as well.
We travelled with our 2 young children, and grandparents, and so the pool access was not the best either. There was no locked gate to protect children from getting we had to keep a real close eye on them as well.- Anonymous from Ashburn, Posted: 09/10/2018
Good location. Needs a garbage disposal in the kitchen.- Anonymous from Fort Wayne, Posted: 04/22/2019
Large home easily accommodating 8 adults, easy walking distance to beach and great location in Sea Pines close to Hilton Head. Recommend bike rental to take advantage of the terrific bike paths. One issue was lower level bedrooms had musty smell and moths. Property management company did respond to spray but moths were present all week. Fees for heating pool and hot tub exhoberent.- Anonymous from West Chester, Posted: 10/29/2018
