Why Should I live In Bluffton? There’s still more to love!


 Bluffton Heart of the Lowcountry

If you read my blog, “Why Should I Live In Bluffton” from February 2014 thank you and if you haven’t read it yet, be sure to click back to it after you read this to see even more about Bluffton.

Now that so many of you have finally been able to unglue that snow shovel from your hand and have gone to the chiropractor to crack your neck and realign your back, you may be able to think clearly– I am happy you made it through!  Yes, it is true we did suffer right along with you here with some days in the 50’s- one night we even had a freeze that canceled school and damaged some of our precious palms.  Many of us forgot what cold was like until that day – but we toughed it out like you did and had to wait to play golf until the next week!

Since Spring hit we have been busy with our relaxed lifestyle in Bluffton.  You might think “busy” and “relaxed” don’t belong together, but it all depends on where you live – in Bluffton we know how to make it work!

We popped open our umbrellas for a trip across the bridge for the RBC Heritage Open, we ate all the good food at the Taste of Bluffton, we shopped ‘til we couldn’t pull our wagons any longer at the community yard sales, we went to the circus down by the bowling alley, we played a little golf and tennis, opened our pools, and the list goes on…

 Bluffton is an active community that enjoys having a good time, being together and helping good causes. Take a look at the upcoming “Bluffton Sunset Party Series” for the Friday night celebrations on the May River.

 Bluffton Sunset Party Series

As you can imagine, I have been all over Bluffton showing beautiful homes and communities with smart folks who have decided enough was enough, now is the time to move here.   We have a great selection of homes in all sizes and budgets, interest rates are still low and both buyers and sellers seem to be happy.  This is a great time to buy and sell! I am sure you’ve seen the news and read the reports.

While touring homes, I often try to point out to my clients how Bluffton is so special…and the beauty of nature is always first on my list.

While exploring our communities in the spring, we are sure to find the heartbeat of the Lowcountry alive and flourishing in mother nature’s playground.  From a Belfair rookery, take a look at the endangered Wood Stork and babies.

We also find another of our other Bluffton neighbors in most every pond and lake, the not so endangered alligator, often spotted hanging with their little friends.

The green/brown Anole with its glorious throat fan starts to bask in the sun’s warmth as soon as I do too.  These little guys seem to pop up on every gate I open all season.

 Anole with throat fan.

And if you know me, you know I love the water (and food)!  Some days, when I’m working in Moss Creek, it’s off to the porch of the clubhouse for lunch to watch the tide roll in or out in of the marsh.

Moss Creek Porch 

There’s nothing like the smell of pluff mudd and sweet potato fries to remind me that it’s Spring in the Lowcountry!

You might have thought that I didn’t really talk much about real estate this time, but I did- in Bluffton each home is so special because of where we live, not just what we live in.

Notice our new Bluffton logo at the top?   Find the two hearts- to me those hearts stand for our Bluffton neighbors in people and nature as one community.  That’s why I choose to live in Bluffton. I hope you can join me here too if this sounds like the lifestyle you’d enjoy give me a call!

Hilton Head Island– Loggerhead Sea Turtle Nesting


Caring for and nurturing the creatures of nature is a way of life on Hilton Head Island. “An amazing thing happens every summer onHilton Head Island’s Beaches. An ancient mariner, the loggerhead turtle, emerges from the shimmering water of theAtlantic, and crawls ashore to lay her eggs in a sandy nest”

Hilton Head Sea Turtles

The process of the female laying her eggs begins in May and continues through August. She slowly crawls along the beach in the dark and digs a nest in the sand to bury her hatchlings. She lays about 120 eggs in each of her nests during the season (approximately 6 times). She covers them with sand to protect them from the elements and any unwanted predators. She then crawls back into the sea. It takes 30 days for the baby turtles to hatch. Therefore the hatching process will continue until October. These tiny turtles are about 2 inches long when they begin their life. They hatch in the middle of the night and scramble to the ocean swimming far out to catch the currents of the open water. During this scramble to the ocean the little turtles are most vulnerable to predators – animal and human.

The town of Hilton Headgoes to great lengths to educate its residents and the many vacationers that come to visit during this time period. During the season you can see where stakes have been placed indicating the presence of a nest on the beach.  It is essential that these nests are not disturbed. The town also publishes a brochure that is given to all guests by the rental companies. The brochure illustrates the life cycle of the loggerhead turtle. It also indicates don’ts with regards to the turtles. As previously mentioned these turtles travel at night. It is very important that artificial lights not flood the beaches in the darkness. The turtles will become disoriented and be attracted to the light and not to the ocean. There is a specific ordinance that states lights are not visible or turned off in ocean oriented properties from 10 p.m. May 31 to October.

 Loggerhead Turtle Hilton Head Island

“The most important way you can protect Hilton Head Island’s loggerhead sea turtles is to turn the lights out!”

We have attached the town ofHilton Head’s Brochures which goes into more detail about our neighbors the loggerhead turtles. We hope that you enjoy the facts given and take pride in the process of nurturing these animals.

Lowcountry Lifestyle is Wonderful


The other day I was showing property to a nice couple from Pennsylvania and the wife asked me what I do when I’m not selling real estate. They have been coming to Hilton Head for several years on vacation and are now considering retiring here. I told her that our social life is busier than it was in New Jersey.

Womens Association of Hilton Head Island

Last month I wrote about the Spring festivals, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and the International Piano Competition. I was just thinking about how I felt when I moved here and one of the things that introduced me to many of the activities I am involved in now was WAHHI – the Women’s Association of Hilton Head Island.

The Women’s Association was organized in 1961. It started as a Garden Club with 23 women but it has grown into an organization with over 540 women. The goals of the organization are to promote the natural and cultural beauty of the island, encourage projects which benefit the community, and facilitate communication among the women of the island.

The first September after I moved here I went to luncheon at one of the big hotels and visited the interest groups that were set up before the meeting. Out of the 35 groups I joined several. I took tennis lessons, cooking lessons, joined a financial information group, and an out to lunch group. There are also activities in which the husbands participate. My husband and I are members of the Couples Gourmet Club and we attend four dinners each year at homes in various plantations on the island. There’s a committee that chooses the menus and assigns one portion of the meal to each of the 4 couples that attend. We get to try recipes that we may never have tried on our own. Each couple brings the tab for their portion and at the end of the meal the host divides the cost so that we end up having a gourmet meal for a very modest price. We have made many friends through the club.

I’m also in one of the three Happy Cookers Clubs. There are 21 women in each group and each group meets on a different day for lunch once a month for seven months. Three members of each group prepare a themed lunch for the other 18 members and the lunches are held in member homes. Our husbands join us at a Christmas party and end of year picnic.

Happy Cookers HHI

I guess food and socializing are near and dear to my heart but there is also photography, gardening, travel, books, bridge, community service, the arts, biking, and so much more. I could go on and on about what we do on this beautiful island but life is good here. I love it, can’t you tell?

4th of July in Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island!


July 4th was extraordinarily special this year. The new Plantation Golf Club for the Ocean Course and Heron Point Golf Course had just opened. The Live Oak Restaurant opened a couple of months ago.

Live Oak Restaurant in Sea Pines Resort

All Sea Pines residents and tourists were not disappointed with the signature design style blending Lowcountry, coastal and traditional elements.

And then just in time for July 4th the much awaited   opening of the new Sea Pines Resort Beach Club and the famous Beach Club Bar opened.  From the moment I stepped inside.  I was impressed, amazed, delighted and very proud  with  of  the inviting, beachside atmosphere.  Currently pursuing LEED certification, the Beach Club combines exceptional craftsmanship with breath taking beauty.  Premium finishes and attention to detail throughout affirm Sea Pines Resort’s commitment to quality, durability, and a first-class experience.

Coastal Restaurant opened with exceptional dining menus featuring homegrown – local farm fresh from  farms near my hometown.  Yon’s Farm in Ridge Spring and Rawl’s Farm in Lexington, South Carolina that  makes it truly special to me.

The beachfront bar is a casual and relaxing destination featuring a spacious wrap-around bar complete with sea glass countertops.

It’s just simply too much to write about – you must come take a look for yourself.   You’ll be blown away!

Oh, besides all of that Sea Pines golf flags were American Flags for the day!   A Salute from the Shore, a flyover of vintage planes to salute the armed forces.

What’s New in Sea Pines?


A lot is happening in the Island’s first resort.  The parent company has made the decision to improve one of Hilton Head’s favorite destinations and the results are phenomenal.  I had the privilege of attending the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Sea Pines Plantation Club. It is a tribute to the vision of our founders.  Sea Pines was one of the first resorts to recognize the importance of the environment and, in my opinion, the grandfather of modern resort development. 

Sea Pines Resort

Before the ceremony we enjoyed a tasty breakfast in their new restaurant, incorporating their new farm to table delights. 

Just this week I had the opportunity to learn about all the upgrades and improvements that have, are and will be happening in Sea Pines. The Plantation Club is open, gorgeous and fully takes advantage of the wraparound golf views.  Not only have they created a magnificent experience, they have saved the past and incorporated the original salvaged Savannah brick into the new club house.  Exterior Savannah brick are new.  Inside the looming fireplace incorporates the previously salvaged Savannah brick from the first clubhouse.

From the restaurant or the veranda there are truly breathtaking low country golf views to be had. The building itself comprises 23,000 square feet, an expansive pro shop, full service locker rooms and a new dining concept, ‘farm to table’, complete with participating local certified farmers.

The golf learning center will be a 2400 square foot building with two indoor hitting bays, club repair work room and viewing studio. It is to be a top of the line facility featuring the latest technology plus club fitting systems and the Track Man launch that the pros enjoyed during the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament.

Sea Pines Resort

In process is the new Sea Pines Beach Club, scheduled to open for the 2014 season. The club will feature indoor and outdoor dining with five dining outlets, and ocean front beach bar, a rooftop bar, ocean front decks and premier event space with a covered terrace. Along the upgraded beach access there will be casual dining concessions offering quick pick up and go sandwiches and salads. 

In other news, dredging is complete at HarbourTown, South Beach and Braddock Cove.  The minimum depth is now 8.5 feet.

Under way, following the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament construction began on the golf club house.  The intention is to create an experience commensurate with the international reknown of the course and the destination.   Included will be a Hall of Champions showcasing the rich history of the tournament, expansive pro shop and retail plus exciting pub/grill atmosphere creating an iconic, one of a kind, destination.   

Under consideration are future improvements to the resort including the racquet club, possibly a resort swimming pool, fitness and spa facilities and additional hotel rooms for families and corporate guests.   Known as a family destination, the resort may soon be host to corporate guests. 

What is so impressive about all this growth, is that the family owned resort has benefited from all this improvement without assessments to current owners.  Come visit Hilton Head, Sea Pines and enjoy the renewal of the original founders of this paradise.

Hilton Head Island Volleyball at the Tiki Hut!


Living on Hilton Head Island affords you the opportunity to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities like tennis, golf, walking, biking or water activities but since first moving here in the early 1990’s I have seen the excitement over beach volleyball continue to grow.

Hilton Head Volleyball

Coligny Beach is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.  Outside of the Holiday Inn Oceanfront/Beach House and the Tiki Hut Bar there has been a volleyball net set up for years.  This has always drawn some of the best local players who seem to play all day during the summer.  Apparently they hold down jobs like the rest of us but maybe just when the sun goes down. 

Today there are multiple courts set up, bleachers for die hard fans and a protective net around the Tiki Bar so patrons can watch without worrying about getting hit by a stray ball. 

The next time your in the Coligny area stop by and check out the action or if your lucky maybe you can make it on Hilton Head’s greatest volleyball stage.

Hilton Head Island’s Special Powers


For those who have either visited or lived on Hilton Head Island, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I mention the Island’s Special Powers.

You sense a special feeling when driving over our bridge to the mainland if you’re traveling away from Hilton Head for an extended period of time.  The feeling you get when leaving Hilton Head is similar to saying goodbye to an old friend — not necessarily sadness, but you have a feeling of melancholy and you can’t wait to return to such a magical Island.

Hilton Head’s Special Powers certainly tug at your emotions when you’re crossing the bridge as you return to the Island from being away for a day, a week, or a year.

These Special Powers evoke memories of long walks on South Carolina’s sandy white beaches, riding your bike along miles of bike paths canopied by Live Oaks, playing memorable rounds of golf or sets of tennis, or just being lazy as you sail along the Calibogue Sound.

Hilton Head Island’s Special Powers may originate from her vast history dating back to our country’s colonial days where the clock ticked slower and plantation homes dominated the landscape of the Island. 

Hilton Head Island’s Special Powers may even relate to ghosts of Islanders from long ago.  Island natives still believe the “Blue Lady” roams at night continuing to search for her long-lost husband who perished in a hurricane flood many generations ago.  The “Blue Lady” was married to the Leamington Lighthouse keeper and has remained faithful for over 100 years as she only roams on dark nights in Palmetto Dunes’ Leamington community, where the Leamington Lighthouse still stands, or in Sea Pines’ Harbour Town where the Lighthouse keeper’s cottage still stands after it was moved over 40 years ago.

 Leamington Lighthouse in Palmetto Dunes

Needless to say, Hilton Head Island’s Special Powers engulf every resident and visitor who walks & plays on the Island.  Even dolphins & alligators seem more relaxed and stress free – as long as you don’t feed them! 

Many visitors to the Island have decided to become full-time or part-time residents after experiencing its Special Powers – I know I did.  I moved to the Island in 1990 to be a tennis professional at Sea Pines and soon realized the true essence of Hilton Head. 

We Islanders don’t produce textiles or build cars or drill for oil or raise skyscrapers.  We are part of a special place and lucky enough to have found our little Island on the coast of South Carolina, where we experience its Special Powers every day.

And guess what.  We have room for you, once you’re ready to join us.

Opportunity is Knocking on Hilton Head Island


There is an old proverb that says, “Opportunity only knocks once”. I am not certain where that proverb came from, but I couldn’t disagree with it more. I looked up the word “opportunity” and the definition says an “advantageous chance”. I believe we are surrounded with opportunities every day.

Shelter Cove Kayak

Just the other day we had some furniture delivered to our home and the movers scraped and gouged our stairway walls as well as the woodwork. There are a couple ways to look at this situation. My better half was fretting over the fact that we now needed to have someone come in and repair the walls. I, being the optimistic person that I am, said “why can’t you look at this as an opportunity”.  She looked at me as if I had two heads. I then replied “this is your OPPORTUNITY to have the walls repainted the color of your choice and make it your own”. I am still not sure she agrees with me, but that sentence has provoked a lot of thought between us. 

We both moved to Hilton Head about 10 years ago because we were given an opportunity or a chance to make a change.  Yes opportunity was knocking!  Another popular saying is “when opportunity knocks, answer the door”. Answer the door we did!  We packed up our lives and started a new chapter in paradise.

Shelter Cove Marina

I now have the OPPORTUNITY to give many people the choice to perhaps relocate or buy a second home on this beautiful island called Hilton Head. I opt to be optimistic and look forward to helping you with this advantageous OPPORTUNITY.

My Endless Vacation….On Island Time….


My RCI magazine just came in the mail with this title and I realized that is my life now.   Although I work “full time” as a Realtor I feel like I am blessed with an endless vacation.  I have lived in Bluffton for 5 years this summer, it is truly a blessing!   My family never has to leave to drive “home” back up 95 after a just week of trying to fit in all our R&R like we did for so many years.  We have adjusted, in a good way, to “Island time.”  Even though we are still a busy family with kids in school and full time jobs, many days we are on vacation, if even for a few hours, life is good!

Hilton Head Island

My heart often goes out to nice folks who are “headed back home” and stop in my office for a quick peek at what living on HHI or in Bluffton would be like.  For many, I can see in their eyes that the dream starts at that moment, if it isn’t already popping up in their mind during every snow, busy commute and boring day.  We take a tour of Moss Creek, Hampton Hall, Palmetto Dunes, Indigo Run, Mill Creek – whatever communities match the dream lifestyle they describe to me and the smiles keep coming! And the planning starts happening!  You too could live the Endless Vacation, whether you are retired or if you are still working like me.

So what have I been doing on my Endless Summer?  Well if you have read my previous blogs about Bluffton, HHI life and Palmetto Bluff you probably know I gravitate toward water, music and food.  

Of course going to the beach on Hilton Head Island is easy and always fun and relaxing – we do what most people do there – walk, sit and talk, play, eat and we love to watch the Sea Turtle nests gradually build up over the summer months down the beaches.  This year, I want to go to a hatching with a guide – oh how awesome that would be to watch the little ones head to sea!  Remember, if you are staying on the beach “LIGHTS OUT” for the sea turtles.

 One fall day I went charter fishing with Stacey in the lagoon system at Palmetto Dunes, catching those red fish was exciting.  Stacey made it easy by baiting my hook constantly and showing me exactly where to cast.  I think this summer I will finally catch a big shark.  Fishing has always been in my blood and it seems like you could carry a pole around all day, anywhere and catch something here- I think my father- law does!

Palmetto Dunes Golf

Speaking of my father-in-law, this year he went out on a shrimp boat and had a grand adventure. Bringing home a whole bunch of fresh shrimp he helped to catch and stories of the birds and smells- think I will pass on that one but I do want to learn to cast a shrimp net at the Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.  They always have classes and adventures – talk about an endless vacation! Be sure to check out all the diverse classes and activities they offer.  Our family enjoys visits the butterfly enclosure or go for quiet walks along the marsh and run in the fields at Honey Horn.  Sometimes we head out to Pinckney Island to see how the butterflies, birds and fiddler crabs are doing in their quiet habitat too.

We have many relaxing evenings after work at Shelter Cove, listening to live music and eating on the marina watching the sunset over the boats.  Summer long fireworks do add fun to the diner as well.   Attending a beautiful concert with the Hilton Head Symphony or Hilton Head Island Choral Society or taking in a show at the Arts Center is a fabulous way we end the night.

We enjoy tennis too and you may have read before.  This summer my youngest will be at Van der Meer for tennis camp again- if there are any sponsors out there looking for an up and coming super star in the next 5 years give me a call! In the meantime, my husband is out on the court with his friends all over Bluffton and HHI in matches with a variety of teams all year too. You just can’t beat our area for great  year-round tennis.

I did start playing a little golf at Palmetto Dunes and even attended one of the weekly free clinics they offer.  I am going to play more golf this summer.  Watch out if you are on the same course!  I can push/pull, hook and slice and it’s a mystery which one it will be!  But there’s no rush to figure it all out, I’m on island time!

Palmetto Dunes Golf

Maybe next blog I will have a golf story, but somehow water, food and music will probably be part of it!

I am looking forward to helping you find the perfect year round or part time home in Bluffton and on HHI!  I love working to help make more Endless Vacations become a reality!
