Steps from the calming waves of St. Helena Sound on an oyster-shell beach, Southern Seaclusion is a tranquil escape on Coffin Point Plantation of Forrest Gump fame. The 4-bedroom home sits on naturally landscaped grounds, boasting views of the Saint Helena Sound.
A covered, screened-in wrap-around veranda spanning three sides of the home, welcomes guests with a BBQ grill and ample patio furniture, ideal for quiet mornings overlooking the water or lazy afternoons surrounded by tall oaks and wildflowers.
The home opens on the upper level, where an open floor plan marries the living room, kitchen and dining areas. Styled in beach cottage décor, the living area features two comfy couches and elegant accent chairs facing a large-screen TV. A handsome game table stands ready for checkers or chess.
Steps away, the fully stocked kitchen invites cooking or snacking, with an island bar and extra seating for two. A charming dining area overlooking the water seats six. Vaulted ceilings, large picture windows and sliding glass doors to the wrap-around deck allow light to fill all three areas, with views from every angle.
Three of the home’s four bedrooms are also on this floor, each uniquely styled in beachy decor:
The Primary Suite features a king-sized bed, full-length mirror, en-suite bath and picture windows with Saint Helena Sound views.
Bedroom 2 is ideal for kids, has two twin beds and a pull-out trundle bed, sleeping up to four guests. This room has a small flat-screen TV and views of the tree-lined grounds.
Bedroom 3 has a queen-sized bed and picture window overlooking a giant oak tree. This room and Bedroom 2 share a full bathroom, complete with a washer and dryer.
Bedroom 4 is located in a private, waterfront apartment on the lower level with a separate lockable entrance. The space opens onto a living area with TV and an efficiency kitchen with refrigerator, stove, sink and dining table for two. A private bedroom features a queen-sized bed and private bath with standing shower.
On the ground floor, you’ll also find a ping pong table, accessible from the upper level, a TV, corn hole, small refrigerator, sink area, and a dryer for beach towels. Both garage doors open to allow access from this area to outside.
*We apologize, but the fireplace is not for guest use.
At sunset, stroll down a cobbled path facing the water to take in the west-facing views on a private deck area with seating for two. *The neighboring docks are located on private property, and are not for guest use.
Be prepared for loggerhead turtle and dolphins sightings -- or to add even more wildlife to your viewing list, as you’ll have a Hunting State Park Season Pass to use during your stay. With carport parking for one car and driveway parking for an additional three vehicles, you’ll have the freedom to explore the surrounding area.
*Please be advised that there are dirt roads on the Coffin Point Plantation. These roads can get quite soggy during intense rains, but are still passable.
*For larger families and or groups, Southern Sea Esta is located right next door.
As our gift to you for booking with us, we offer free admission to select Sea Islands and Beaufort attractions. Called the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like the Kazoo Factory. It’s our way of saying, “Thanks!”
Please note that guests must be at least 21 years of age to rent this property.
Situated right on the St. Helena Sound, our St. Helena Island vacation rentals range from quaint cottages to roomier bungalows, most of which are located right on the waterfront. Clean and cozy, each rental is equipped with a fully functional kitchen and indoor entertainment. Guests are welcome to explore Fort Fremont, view the Coffin Point Plantation Home or run down the Avenue of Oaks—the very road Tom Hanks sprinted down more than 20 years ago as Forrest Gump. St. Helena’s breathtaking beaches frequently give guests the chance to view loggerhead turtles, crabs, oysters and dolphins.
