On America’s favorite vacation island, where there is an abundance of Hilton Head Island timeshare rentals, we’ve seen it all. The desirability of vacationing here led to being the place where many timeshare systems originated. As far back as the early 1980s, Hilton Head Island was a leader in timeshare rentals because this was consistently where so many people wanted to go for their dream vacations.

Even back then, Swallowtail at Sea Pines was already offering families, couples, and households of every kind an easier way to secure a reliable, affordable, annual vacation, in a resort so innovative that it made history. Right in the middle of the Miracle Mile, halfway between Harbour Town and the Sea Pines Beach Club, the founder of Sea Pines envisioned villas where people could get not only the best vacation of their lives, but also one they could count on every year. It’s just one of the reasons why Swallowtail at Sea Pines has such limited inventory of timeshare rentals on Hilton Head Island.

The troubles you hear about with timeshares arise from the system that big operations use to “move product.” They structure their agreements in a way that works entirely in their favor, and they don’t listen carefully to the individual desires and visions of people who are beginning to investigate the advantages of a vacation home.

The ideal answer is a personal solution of your own that still has access to the best properties around the world, not a hard-sell approach that bullies you into one or more Hilton Head Island timeshare rentals. That’s what you’ll get at Swallowtail at Sea Pines.

Our approach is so low-key, and the rental price is so low that you just might not believe you are considering a timeshare rental on Hilton Head Island. In fact, Swallowtail at Sea Pines was one of the original properties that offered non-owners the ability to rent a timeshare, rather than purchase one outright.

In the heart of Sea Pines Plantation, Swallowtail at Sea Pines is on the “50-yard line” between Harbour Town and the Sea Pines Beach Club, on the Pete Dye Heron Point golf course and within the sound of the ocean. Harbour Town is a little more than a half-mile away, as is the Beach Club. The Shops at Sea Pines Center is across the street and offers extraordinary shopping, dining, and services.

The Sea Pines Forest Preserve, which offers bridle paths, wetland boardwalks, bridges, fishing docks, and a 4,000-year-old Sea Pines Shell Ring, is a short, two-mile drive away, and South Beach – and the neighboring South Beach Marina and Salty Dog Cafe – is a three-mile car or trolley ride.

The No. 1 tees at Harbour Town Golf Links, Davis Love III Atlantic Dunes course, and Pete Dye Heron Point course are all within a half-mile of Swallowtail. The Sea Pines Racquet Club is a short half-mile walk away, and water sports – including boating, jet skiing, kayaking, parasailing, and dolphin tours – are just a few steps farther in Harbour Town.

“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
“Have been staying at Swallowtail my whole life, since the age of three months in 1982. The condos are lovely and peaceful. Nice pool under moss-laden live oaks. 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

“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

“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
“Excellent location and accommodation. Something to do for everyone.”
Nelson Santiago

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

Nancy Minnick
“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
