    We are Marriott owners and stayed at Swallowtail about ten years ago when it was a Marriott property. We just finished our second week at Swallowtail and had a great time. This is not one of the new glitzy resorts with the massive pools, convenience store or Starbucks, but it is a great resort. The location is great; located in Sea Pines about a mile from Harbour Town and a mile from the beach. Beach access isn't a problem, because Sea Pines has a great beach park with restaurant, life guards, bathrooms and outdoor showers. We had no problem finding a parking space the entire week. Sea Pines has miles of bike baths, so you can get anywhere on bikes. Bike rentals were available right across the street at the Sea Pines Center. The units are large by modern timeshare standards. At one time we had four teenagers and two adults and didn't feel at all cramped. There were two fold out couches, two singles and a king in the master. We would definitely stay at Swallowtail again.

    The units are spacious and quiet at night. The Sea Pines location gives you great access to everything the Island has to offer. If you like golf, biking, beaches, tennis, great restaurants, 24 hour security, Harbor Town and fishing, this resort is for you.

    This resort is small. It is set in Sea Pines Plantation which offers a multitude of activities from bike riding to kayaking to listening to music in a rocking chair at Harbor Town.

    The resort has been refurbished and all the units have been uplifted with new kitchens from cabinets to tile, new furniture, paint outside. The job was done with Marriott overseeing the work. So it is beautiful.

    The resort is not on the beach but a five minute walk, bike ride or trolley ride away. Restaurants are right across the street as is a small convenience store.

    The resort will be under new management come December 2003. Many say it will now get the attention it deserves!

    Older resort, 38 units in total. All units are dedicated 2 bedroom units. Resort is on the Sea Pines Ocean Golf course. All units were refrubished in 2002, so they are practically new.

    Unit has one bed/one bath, kitchen and living room downstairs. The unit has one bed/one bath and "bonus" living area upstairs. Total sleeping capacity of the unit is 6 private, 8 non -private. The resort has a pool, whirlpool, and shuffleboard. No other amenities, though it is within a few blocks of the ocean.
