“The resort is located in Sea Pines, which is a gated community. It is tucked away, so it is perfect for peace and quiet. The unit is right off the course, which is great if you’re a golfer. The unit is clean with many upgrades.”

Shana Sumpter
“We used to own a vacation home in Sea Pines, but this is much easier and more enjoyable than having to maintain and worry about property. The golf course views and proximity to Harbour Town, the Beach Club, and The Shops at Sea Pines Center make this a perfect getaway home for us. And we get to stay in our same villa every year. We’re really glad we bought two weeks in Swallowtail!”
The Nichols
“Excellent location and accommodation. Something to do for everyone.”
Nelson Santiago

Perfect location within walking distance of Harbour Town. Directly across from The Shops at Sea Pines Center, and a very short drive or bike ride up Lighthouse Road from the Beach Club.”
Jeremy Withnell

“Wonderful place for all ages. Great location. Relaxing, beautiful, lowcountry scenery with lots of things to see and do.”

Nancy Minnick

“My home away from home. Spacious townhouse-style units that are clean, bright, and well maintained. Full kitchen, washer, and dryer in the units. Sea Pines location couldn’t be better. Fifteen-minute walk to Harbour Town and a five-minute drive to the beach. Directly across the street from Giuseppe’s Pizza – the best on the island.”

John Heuer
“Beautiful and well maintained. I highly recommend.”
Ron Smith
“We love Swallowtail. After seeing all the conveniences of its location in Sea Pines, we purchased a week. The following year, we purchased another week. Swallowtail’s location makes it so easy. Access to walking and bike trails and halfway between Harbour Town and the beach. Great pool and hot tub. Grilling areas with two grills each. Swallowtail backs up to the Heron Point Golf Course. A quiet place for reading or having your favorite beverage as golfers come through. We look forward to going there every year.”
The Kruckers

“Beautiful please. Quiet and with awesome views. A lovely place.”
