Confidential Pass Code Numbers For Guest Passes

All Sea Pines Residential Property Owners in good standing will be assigned a unique pass code number to request guest passes. These pass codes are issued by the Sea Pines Community Services Administration Office. Guest passes are part of the system designed to ensure that only authorized vehicles are permitted into Sea Pines. Passes are valid from 1 to 30 days and prominently display an expiration date. Once vehicles are in Sea Pines, passes help ensure vehicles visit only authorized areas, depart prior to expiration date and park in authorized areas. Passes facilitate passage of authorized vehicles through the gates, while denying such access to unauthorized vehicles.

Your property owner pass code should be kept confidential and not given out under any circumstances.

Authority: Under the 1988 Covenants, Community Services Associates (CSA) shall enforce Sea Pines Gate Entry Policy. The Gate Entry Policy can be amended, (subject to all necessary approvals, rights and conditions), by the CSA Board of Directors in accordance with CSA Bylaws or by CSA Members through a Referendum.

Enforcement: A record of all passes and decals issued under the Gate Policy will be subject to routine audit and any abuses of the gate entry privilege will result in appropriate warnings. If abuses continue, the gate entry privileges of the abusers will be terminated. Also, non-payment of the required annual Sea Pines property assessment (1974 Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions) will result in suspension of the RPOs guest gate entry privileges until such time that balance owed to CSA has been paid.

Guest Passes
Sea Pines Property Owners may request passes for their guests to visit at their homes by calling the Sea Pines Welcome Center at 843.671.7277.

You will be asked to provide your confidential pass code identification number, and you may be asked key questions to ensure the validity of the request.

You will need to provide the guests’ names and the period of the visit (a pass can be called in for up to a 30 day time period). Within seconds after a call has been made, a computer records a special pass that contains the name of the guest, the name and address of the resident and the period of the stay.

Once a pass has been called in, the guest may pick up the pass at the Sea Pines Welcome Center located at 32 Greenwood Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928 prior to entering the Sea Pines Community. Alternatively the Sea Pines Property Owner may pick up the pass and mail it to the guest.

Sea Pines Welcome Center

The Sea Pines Welcome Center is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm. Passes for guest of Sea Pines Property Owners may be picked up from this location.

If a guest of a property owner arrives at the gates of Sea Pines between 11:01 pm and 6:59 am he/she is asked to drive directly to the security gates and speak with the officers on duty. If the appropriate pass has been called in for the visitor, the officer on duty will have the guest’s name on his list and the guest will be allowed to enter Sea Pines. At that time the officer will instruct the guest to return to the Welcome Center the following day between 7:00 am and 11:00 pm to pick up his/her pass.
