1128 Summerwind Cottage
Happy Turtle Cottage, shaded by beautiful live oak moss-draped trees, is located in the Summer Wind neighborhood of Seabrook Island. Summer Wind Cottages are located just one mile from the island's main Beach Club area, which features outdoor pools, outdoor and indoor restaurants, two golf courses, and multiple beach boardwalks. North Beach and its wide-open sand beach is a short bike ride away! If you're up for a short walk, Pelican Beach is just around the corner (approx. ½ mile) – a great place to watch the sunsets, spot dolphins or search for shells. Your family and friends can enjoy a peaceful retreat while being close to so many of Seabrook Island's great amenities.
Happy Turtle Cottage underwent a complete renovation that was finalized in May 2022. You will be impressed with all of the updates the owners have made to this property.
