About Us

The Association of Sea Pines Plantation Property Owners, Inc. (ASPPPO) and The Advisory Board is now Sea Pines Property Owners Association. It represents residential property owners in Sea Pines. Incorporated in 1973 and nearly 50 years old, we have over 3500 members. Residential property owners represent 92% of the community land value.

Our Mission

Sea Pines POA provides a forum for discussion, debate, and promoting the common good and welfare of Owners and to represent them in pursuit of these objectives.

Sea Pines was the first and most award-winning planned community. Ever since, competing residential communities have replicated and enhanced Founder Charles Fraser’s vision locally, regionally and nationally. We work to ensure our community keeps up with newer, competing developments.
