Part one of our vacation paradise began with a broad selection of pictures that I took of the lovely secluded beach and some of its shells. After all, location is the most important aspect to consider.
Following that should be the hotel, don’t you think? Nothing wrecks a vacation like a bad hotel. And nothing makes a trip more memorable than one with class, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful surroundings and amenities, and a great bed!
Let me congratulate the Westin Resort and Spa for providing all of those things. We came away without having a single complaint.
And here is the disclaimer – I don’t have any interests in the resort. So this is a totally unbiased opinion.
See for yourself!
Heavenly bed. Heavenly bath with rainfall showers and comfy robes to slip into.
Pools of all kinds. with cabanas!
Lounge chairs in tropical settings.
Four restaurants and a fitness center.
There’s really no reason to leave the resort.
But we did – of course. Refuges and parks abound, making it a great place for bird watchers.
Old Harbour Town and Lighthouse can’t be missed. We were treated to a little live music beneath the Liberty Oak. Great job guys!
The Lighthouse and its 114 steps just had to be climbed.
And I had to take plenty of pictures from the top.
I particularly liked this one of the sinking sun.
The old trees along the harbor amazed me.
I’ve got one more part to this adventure. Check back for the final chapter of our vacation paradise.
I can just feel those breezes blowing.
It was perfect Georgette. Not too many vacations where you can come away saying that.
Spectacular pictures! Looks like a wonderful vacation…!
It was Dianna. I’m glad you like the pictures.
It must have been hard to come home!
You are so right Valerie. I wanted to stay longer.
Wow that is just a beautiful place, how ever did you leave? 🙂 MJ
I am asking myself that very question MJ.
Beautiful photos! And I agree about great hotels! Some of my best vacay memories are about the amazing hotels we’ve been lucky enough to experience. Looks like you found a great one! ~ Sheila
It makes all the difference in the world doesn’t it?
That place looks like a little slice of heaven. I can’t wait to read more.
I have one more gallery of photos. One includes food. I’m thinking of it as my ‘fireworks’ ensemble and hope you like it.
Looks perfectly heavenly – all those pools – pools at night – and sailboats. Glad you climbed the lightouse
Isn’t the view from the top always special? Couldn’t resist.
It’s picture perfect, too!
I did give my camera a workout!
Renee, It looks so beautiful and relaxing. What a wonderful time you must have had!
It was wonderful. I’m ready to go back.
I spend the 4th of July in Hilton Head one year. The fireworks at the Harbour Town Lighthouse were incredible. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!
Oh, I wish I could have seen the fireworks. That sounds amazing. Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice comment.
I apologize for leaving typos on your lovely blog…I “spent”. Oh yes, the fireworks were spectacular, Renee.
Harbor Town is a classic place. The hotel/resort looks great.
Yah, ok, the hotel looks nice. Comfy environs and bathrobes, but it was the birds (the heron in particular) and the environs (the setting sun in particular) that drew my attention. Glad you had some precious time away from the routine.
Such great shots – I want to go there, now! It looks sooooo relaxing!
