About John Lambis

Born and raised in Newport, RI, the ocean has always been special to me. Whether sailing rails-in, fishing from the shore, surfing in the waves or just skimming rocks on the water, many pleasant memories were made there. When I moved to the south and met my wife Kathryn, we both longed for a getaway near the water. That's when we discovered Hilton Head Island. We've always loved vacationing in Sea Pines and after many pleasant stays, we finally decided to purchase a home. We truly are excited about Tupelo Honey and are looking forward to others enjoying all it has to offer.

John Lambis purchased this house in 2013

Why John Lambis chose Sea Pines

The Sea Pines Plantation is like no other vacation / resort community you will find. And Tupelo Honey puts you in one of the best locations in the plantation. Whether its a short stroll to the Sea Pines Beach Club, Lawton Stables or a bike ride to Harbour Town or South Beach, you're just minutes to the best that Sea Pines has to offer. With miles of safe, fun bike paths, you'll quickly find yourself not wanting to use your car, but walk or bike everywhere! That's what the Sea Pines Plantation and Tupelo Honey are all about - connecting with family, friends and the unique environment of the plantation.

What makes this house unique

This isn't a 'rental property' to us - it's our home! We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a special place, with all the amenities you'd expect in a resort home, along with the charm and comfort of a true 'beach' house. As you can see in the pictures - our recent renovations, along with the open floor plan, will keep you comfortable and connected with family and the outdoors. Imagine sitting at the dining room table, or on the screened porch, and having a fabulous view of the birds or the pool. Some evenings you will see deer slowly work their way through the area and disappear into the woodland area behind our home. We looked at many homes in the area before we purchased this house and began its' transformation into Tupelo Honey. You won't find a cleaner, more relaxed, open and fun house in the area.

Great home in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location in Sea Pines and the ability to ride our bikes wherever we needed to go. Although we drove to the Sea pines Beach Club, you can easily ride your bike there also. The home is very nice with everything you need for your stay. We did very little cooking... Just breakfast, but the kitchen looked well-stocked. We also only used the master BR since there was only two of us, but the other 2 bedrooms and sunroom looked nice. It was a little too warm to use the sunroom for us, but I'm sure it would be wonderful in the spring and fall. The pool was pretty, and we did use it a couple of times. We liked the tile and laminate flooring, especially with dogs. The living area was very generous. The homes are spaced out nicely in this area, so you feel like you have a lot of privacy. They are currently building a new home directly behind this home, so it was a little noisy outside from 0800-6:00pm. This was one of the reasons we didn't stay by the pool and opted for the beach. There are lots of good restaurants close by. Dealing with the owner was very easy. He responded quickly to questions and confirming our reservation. When we arrived, the property was clean, except the pool. The pool was supposed to be cleaned that day, so I don't know if a storm caused all the debris in the pool, or if it was missed. When the pool cleaner came on Tuesday, it was very clean, and we were able to maintain it for the next few days with the skimmer net. We would rent this vacation home again in the future. We were able to just relax, ride bikes, walk, and enjoy the beach and restaurants.

This house is wonderful! It's location is perfect for biking to the beach and to Harbour Town. We especially enjoyed the pool and the kitchen which was filled with a great assortment of updated tools, pans, and items. Washer and dryer were very nice too.

House was very clean and comfortable and John is a great guy who provided us with spectacular communication!

Great Home, Clean, Comfortable & Loaded w/ Extras!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean was our first impression of this home. It is obviously well-maintained. It had everything we needed and plenty of starter supplies. The backyard is an absolute oasis always with some sun and some shade! John was very quick to respond to any concerns or questions throughout our reservation and stay. The location was perfect for us! It an quick walk/bike to the beach or Lawton Stables and a easy drive/bike to Salty Dog or Harbour Town. This was our fourth stay in Sea Pines, and we would definitely stay at this property again! I highly recommend Tupelo Honey!

This vacation home was incredible.

  • 5 of 5

Tupelo Honey met all our expectations and more! Sometimes home descriptions aren't accurate with what they promise, but this house was that and more. The TV's, furniture, the fully-stocked kitchen & appliances, the bedrooms and bathrooms were all 5 star. Really the best of everything. The large pool, the deck furniture and grill and the lighted pergola-we enjoyed sitting and watching the stars. The home is close to everything in Sea Pines. We biked everywhere. I can't say enough about Tupelo Honey. We will be going back!
