Welcome to the Beverly Serral Signature Rental home at 11 Black Tern, just off Audubon Pond near South Beach, in Sea Pines.
Our philosophy as vacation home owners is that your vacation experience, be it 3 days or 3 months, should be completely comfortable. We accomplish this by offering a spotlessly clean home, beautifully decorated in our signature coastal chic style, and equipped with, what we consider to be, the absolute necessities for a comfortable stay.
Top of the list: CLEAN. And we mean CLEAN in ALL CAPS! We are told over and over that our homes are the cleanest in which our guests have ever stayed. It is one of our Signature hallmarks and we take CLEAN seriously.
11 Black Tern is our newest home, is super stylish, with all new EVERYTHING and is sure to fast become a guest fave.
The house is light and bright and filled with every amenity that we appreciate when we vacation: fabulous new electronics including Vizio and Samsung HDTV in living room and each bedroom, complimentary Netflix on all televisions, iHome Sound Dock for ipod player; our Signature Fili d’Oro crisp, cotton sheets, fluffy pillows, and thirsty towels; all new furnishings (more on these below!), and lots of information about everything to do on the Island.
Here’s the scoop on 11 Black Tern: the house was purchased by our clients in December of 2012 and the new owners spent a year renovating— the result in soooo worth it. (Look for us on Facebook as we will be featuring this property in our TBT Before and Afters.)
The bright, open kitchen, featuring all white dishes and tons of accoutrements, is ideal for cooking in or ordering-in. The entire space was gutted and reconfigured with all new lighting, cabinetry and appliances including induction cooktop and double ovens.
The kitchen opens to the living room and den (ok, we have to find a better word for this fabulous space) and the entire common area looks out to the lawn, pool, and beyond to the marsh, which does fill with water at high tide. Peruse the photos to see just how peaceful and beautiful this space is.
Also off the living room is the dining room with seating for 8. Just beyond the kitchen is a full size laundry room (leading to the garage) and a guest powder room.
The master bedroom (king) has a pool/marsh view and features an all new bath with big walk in shower (There’s a fun find in the shower—let us know if you discover it….) and huge walk in closet.
Two guest bedrooms (queen and queen plus twin) boast super comfy sleeping spaces, large closets, and a shared bath with double sinks and a tub/shower combination. All new!
Did you notice that there is not a speck of carpet in the entire house? The new flooring is all tile—even though it mimics wood!
We must give credit here to the gifted designer who is responsible for the inviting and super stylish furnishings and accessories, as well as the just-plain-chic of this house: Rochester, NY designer Carrie Fazio (Revamp by Carrie Fazio) – our hats are off to you!
As always, our Signature homes are fabulously outfitted and equipped—and if there is by chance something you find that you need—just ask.
Stay connected to the outside world (if you must) with super speedy secure WI-FI.
Are comfort, convenience, cleanliness, and service of value to you? They are to us as well! And while you will likely find other vacation rental homes for less, you will always find you receive less in return. Our Signature homes out-perform all others in their categories for a reason, and we invite you to experience our service and style for yourself.
We are proud to have developed a niche concept in vacation rentals on Hilton Head Island: Each of our Signature properties is outfitted and equipped to exactly the same high standard– No matter the address, our guests may expect to find their kitchen fabulously equipped with heavy, quality cookware, lots of serving pieces, all matching dishes, and ample glassware.
