General Information

When are Beach Shack Writers retreats offered?

Our private, personal five-night writing retreats -- Sunday to Thursday -- are offered from late August through early April when the bustling summer tourist season has ended and the island is peaceful and quiet once more. It’s truly the perfect place and the perfect time for a private writing retreat. Extended seven night stays are possible based on villa availability.

What’s the weather like during the off-season?

The off-season weather on the island is absolutely gorgeous: sunny and mid-70s, and even when it does get a bit chilly, the word winter rarely comes to mind.

What’s included in my Beach Shack Writers retreat package?

Your 5 Night Beach Shack Week Package includes: Welcome Cocktail Meet & Greet; Morning Beach Walks, Nightly Happy Hour Gatherings at the on site Coconutz Sports Bar & Grill; a Welcome Gift Bag, and a free 5-day bike rental. Private editorial development services and sessions are available upon request and charged separately.

What are my accommodation choices?

Our 5 Night retreats feature one bedroom, ocean view villas with full kitchens and direct beach access. Via our partnership with the wonderful folks at Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Resort, a full-service beachfront island resort, Beach Shack Writers reside in resort-managed villas and have full access to all of the resort amenities, including an attendant-supervised gym, a full service sports bar and restaurant, the largest swimming pool on the island and, of course, the beach is your backyard.  

Our director lives year-round at the resort and all retreat activities take place on site.

How do I get to Hilton Head Island? 

 Those coming by plane have the option of flying into Savannah, GA. (a 45 minute drive to the Island), or directly into Hilton Head Airport. There are numerous car rental agencies at both airports, and Hilton Head has great cab service.

What do I do when I’m not writing? 

In addition to pristine beaches and an abundance of nature to explore, the Island’s amenities include wonderful local restaurants, night spots and coffee shops. There’s also a Barnes & Noble Bookstore, several wonderful day spas, and a plethora of specialty shops.
