Advice 5¢ Review

A roof with varied pitches and eaves tops this contemporary, steely blue-gray beach house with white trim and multipane windows rising from the dunes. Although the name is lighthearted, Advice 5¢ is serious about guest care. Crisp, colorful linens dress the beds, and rooms have private decks, ceiling fans, and baths stocked with thick cotton towels. The suite has a whirlpool bath, sitting area, and cable TV. You may use the tennis courts and the swimming pool and get beach access at nearby Sea Pines neighborhood. From the North Beach area, you can walk to downtown shops and restaurants.
