We have stayed at Swallowtail at Sea Pines several times. We enjoy it because it is spacious and quiet. We travel with our teenage children and everybody needs their space. The master bedroom is located upstairs and away from the bottom bedroom. There is a large living room area that is open. My favorite is the sitting room in front...

We have stayed in a few condos on Hilton Head Island but this is our first time staying out at Sea Pines. We are very pleased with everything about this condo. They have done a beautiful job refurbishing one of the older condo developments in this area. The kitchen is large and well appointed. Breakfast bar and dining room table...

We were very impressed with the significant improvements made to both bathrooms since last year. These areas were updated with new flooring, lighting, countertops, and fresh paint. They were very much needed. Upstairs, the large hot tub has been removed ( we never used it at all in 7 years ), and a huge shower enclosure now dominates that end...

Let me start off by saying that we own here and have owned here since before Swallowtail, inside SeaPines, on Hilton Head, was even built. Way back to the 70's. That was even before Marriott got into TimeShare. About 50% of the original owners from back then still own their units and most of the owners use their weeks every...

Its seems like the place hasn't been updated since 1978. Paper thin walls, serviceable kitchen, barely average bathrooms, and the smell of "wet-dog" in the air...all with a Brady Bunch decor. I think a Best Western may have more modern decor. The Management really needs to update the place! The best thing about this place is the location - great...
