If you agree that there could be no better place to live than on the water in Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, you'll want to know more about Beachside Tennis Villas.
With just 81 units overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Calibogue Sound, Beachside offers the best of the Hilton Head lifestyle, just steps away from the attractions of South Beach Marina Village and a world-class beach.
"One of the unique features of the two-bedroom villas is that both bedrooms overlook the water," says realtor Bruce Tuttle. "You have balconies off each bedroom and one off the living room. On top of that, you have some of the best sunset views on Hilton Head."
You can choose a one-bedroom, one-bath villa with about 1,000 square feet or a 1,400- square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath unit. Prices range from $995,000 to $1.4 million, and most units are decorator furnished.
Tennis courts and a swimming pool are within easy walking distance, but when you're ready for a change of pace, you'll enjoy South Beach Marina Village, with its shops and restaurants and wide variety of activities, including deep sea fishing charters, kayak rentals, dolphin and sightseeing boat excursions and bicycle rentals.
You could choose to live at Beachside Tennis Villas year-round or use your unit as a vacation home, while if you opt to rent your home at the beach, you'll probably bring in $30,000 to $50,000 annually. Monthly regime fees typically cover maintenance costs, including water and sewer service, pest control, refuse, landscaping, common electricity plus management and a capital reserve fund.
No matter how you view it, buying a unit at Beachside Tennis Villas is an excellent investment.
