About Ted Leavitt

We currently live in Cincinnati OH. The picture comes from our many years in London, England. Our grown children also got a bit of the travel bug and are now spread around the globe -- Palo Alto CA, Beijing China, and London UK.

Hilton Head is in our blood. Ted's grandmother came from Bluffton before leaving in 1911 and the relatives owned places like Rose Hill, Victoria Bluff, and Kirk's Bluff (along the May River) back when land was cheap, cheap (1800s - 1960s)

Ted Leavitt purchased this house in 1998

Why Ted Leavitt chose Hilton Head

Our house has been in the Leavitt family since Ted's father bought the property from Charles Fraser on a hunting trip in the early 1960s. We bought the house in 1998 and then did a complete renovation in order to bring the house up to date. The old beach houses were very open (you had to go outside to the downstairs bedroom!) and we converted it to a 5-bedroom, 5-bath format, while maintaining the character from the early days of Sea Pines. In 2014/2015, we did a major extension to add some of the features we've really wanted to over the years. This has given us a nice master suite, some proper garages, elevator, office/study and a dining room for entertaining the entire group that is there.

What makes this house unique

Having come to Hilton Head since 1962, our house reflects the dichotomy of a modern version of an original Sea Pines beach cottage with the simplicity of beach life. We personally feel the privacy of our setting is a unique benefit, but each person will have their own viewpoint.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at 22 black skimmer for our family vacation. We absolutely loved the house. We spent our mornings at the beach and the afternoons at the pool. It was a perfect location on the beach and having our own pool was ideal. The owners were very helpful before we arrived answering any questions we had and the house had everything we would need. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Hilton Head.

An incredible week at a truly fantastic house. The 4 kids age 10 to 2 went from the beach in the morning to the pool before lunch. Then back to the beach after lunch and back to the pool before dinner. Then back to the pool after dinner. Fun for everyone. The house was so spacious that all three families had their own bedrooms and bathrooms. And the kids had plenty of room to play inside during the infrequent rain showers. We were allowed to use the garage, which was a big plus for me. Everyone really enjoyed the view of the ocean from the deck. It was very relaxing to watch the sunrise on the deck with a cup of coffee and the sunset with a glass of wine. As soon as everyone has checked their schedules, we will book again for next year.

Great week

  • 5 of 5

Great home, pool, location. Do wish there was TV upstairs in living area although understand if desire to keep it more formal, but so much activity centered around kitchen/dining area that would be easier to keep an eye on kids. Upstairs router/range extender not on on arrival and could not logon after turned on. One of turtles on table already broken on arrival and another broken before had a chance to childproof living area. Will reimburse if desired. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We had a terrific week there.

Owner's Response: Thanks. TV in living room has been mentioned before and we still choose not to have one where we overlook the ocean. But the good news is the house does have 7 TVS. We are always available if there are issues, e.g., with wi-fi (turning it off and on usually solves any issues), and it's not a problem with things like children breaking things like small, ornamental turtles. It happens! Thx.

Fabulous Easter/Spring Break Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in Sea Pines many times in the past 15 years. 22 Black Simmer is our favorite! So much so that we have already booked a return trip. We loved the feel of an older beach house while enjoying the spectacular new master suite wing! Our family of 8 adults and 4 granddaughters had a very special poolside Easter service led by the girls----truly an Easter to remember! The kitchen is the most well-equipped of any rental property I have used. The porch was wonderful in April---a gathering spot every morning and evening. I cannot say enough good things about this home and its owner, Ted, who is most helpful! He has even ordered some new cookware since renters before us had mentioned that! I can't wait to return to 22 Black Skimmer!
