What are the residences like?2020-12-18T12:59:57-05:00

The floor plan of your Swallowtail residence was a breakthrough in resort enjoyment. These layouts inspired much imitation, but they have frankly never been duplicated. Recent kitchen and bathroom renovations keep them at the head of their class.

Two bedrooms, a convertible sitting room, and living room make your two-story Swallowtail residence the perfect home base for everything from a couples’ getaway to a family vacation to a foursome’s golf excursion. To view a floor plan, click the button below.

Nowhere else brings the outdoors into your private space quite so vividly. It’s like lounging in air-conditioned comfort on one of coastal Carolina’s legendary fairways. Live oaks, Spanish moss, and pines are an arm’s length away.

Swallowtail architecture set a new standard for blending with the environment and giving residents the options of privacy or community. The achievement people talked about around the world is still here for you to enjoy.


How close is Swallowtail to the beach, golf, and shopping?2020-08-21T09:47:18-04:00

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.

All around Swallowtail at Sea Pines, the prestigious Sea Pines Resort carries on the original vision of Hilton Head Island with more than $50 million in new investment and a commitment to five-star vacation experiences.

Truly, Swallowtail is in the center of it all.

Will I need my car to get around?2020-08-21T09:47:18-04:00

Many Swallowtail vacationers discover they can leave their car parked for most of their vacation stay. That’s because Swallowtail is truly in the center of it all.

A stroll across a tree-shaded street puts you in the Shops at Sea Pines Center, where everything from the necessities to the niceties are at your fingertips. A short walk, bike, or trolley from there, and you are in Harbour Town, where the dream of Hilton Head Island as a world-class resort began.

Catch the trolley the other way, and you are at a white sand beach that appears on lists of the world’s finest. Golf is right outside your door – the Pete Dye Heron Point Course. Around the corner is the world-famous Harbour Town Golf Links – the course that started Hilton Head Island on the path to becoming “golf island.” The Davis Love III Atlantic Dunes course is a half-mile away, and 30 other courses await your selection nearby.

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

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

Karen DeLeon

“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

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

Nancy Minnick

“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
“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
“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
“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.”
