Are two policies better than one? When new buyers come into the Hilton Head real estate market, it is not uncommon for them to call the insurance company that they have been using “back home” for years to insure their property. What many find is that their existing insurer will not cover wind and hail damage for a home in a coastal community. Some buyers will simply get a second policy from the South Carolina Wind and Hail Pool to cover the excluded wind and hail risk. While keeping the familiar insurance company may give some peace of mind, the insurance package has some fundamental flaws if there is a wind or hail claim. Primarily, the lack of replacement cost coverage on contents and the dwelling if the home is a not primary residence will create the equivalent of a second deductible called depreciation. When claims are settled on actual cash...

Sea Pines is where it all started on Hilton Head Island. Charles Fraser envisioned creating a destination where residents and nature lived in harmony. Instead of clear cutting land, building homes and then planting trees within the community residences were carefully built within the mature landscape. That vision has carried throughout the development of Hilton Head Island.
Sea Pines is a mixture of short term rentals and full-time residents spread among 5.000 acres of coastline and forest. There are five miles of sandy beaches along the Atlantic Ocean coastline and another 3 miles along the intracoastal waterway. Perhaps the most famous site in the South is the Harbour Town lighthouse, overlooking the marina and the 18th green of the Harbour Town Golf Links. Sea Pines features 3 championship golf course, the Sea Pines Racquet Club, Beach Club, fitness center, equestrian center, community garden, shopping, dining, and entertainment.

High atop the widow’s walk on the fourth floor of “Tara,” the grand oceanfront southern mansion located on Ft. Walker Drive in Port Royal Plantation, Hilton Head Island, SC., you can imagine it is the year 1521. You can envision the massive sails of the Spanish galleons sent by King Phillip II of Spain to explore the new world as they sail toward you and Port Royal Sound aptly named by King Phillip as Spain’s “Window on the Atlantic.”
As you sip a mint julep while looking out to sea, find yourself swashbuckling into 1663, when English sea captain William Hilton landed on the island and was greeted by Spanish speaking Indians from the Yemassee Tribe! The captain renamed the island Hilton Head, and he commissioned a group of Barbados planters to create the first successful cotton plantations in the South.
Or, time travel back into the American Civil War and...
