Interaction with Guests
My parents live 2 streets over and will welcome you on your first day and provide you with any island tips that you need... we know the best restaurants, best places to shop, where to rent a kayak, where to go if you get sick.
Most of Hilton Head is divided into plantations. The South and North Forest beach areas are simply neighborhoods full of locals who work and play on the island. The neighbors are families, some with children. But just a mile away (by road or bike path) are shops, restaurants, live music venues, putt putt, tennis, and volleyball.
Biking is a great way to see the island. You can bring yours or rent bikes by the hour, day, or week.
Smoking outside only.
Pets must be approved and subject to additional fee.
Hilton Head Hotel tax is 10%, but included in price shown.
If you choose to bring your own linens, rental cost can be reduced.
This property is in the perfect location, near the perfect beach, with all the comforts of home. The owner was accommodating and responsive. The attention to detail from the deluxe bath towels to the beach accessories made our stay perfect. I can't wait to go back.
The island getaway was fantastic! The house was well equipped for the family and children. It's conveniently located to any where in the island and only second from the beach. Closely located to sea pines and many other golfing spots. This is truly an island getaway and would recommend it to anyone that has or has not visited the island before.
What a wonderful getaway! This house is perfectly located on the island, and it is literally a 30 second walk to the beach. It's situated in a quiet neighborhood and the beach you walk onto is just gorgeous. The house has plenty of bedrooms and an awesome enclosed porch, perfect for warm summer nights. The bathrooms and kitchen have been updated and it was really a pleasure to stay here. Rebecca was responsive and friendly and everything you'd want in a great host. I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Hilton Head!
We loved the house!! The best part was the location. Just a short walk down a path across the street brings you to a beautiful beach that was never crowded. And a quick walk down the beach is Pool Bar Jim's which makes amazing frozen drinks! The neighborhood was filled with other beautiful homes and friendly people.
The house itself was really cute and had a ton of comfy beds which was more than enough for our group of 8. The kitchen had all the utensils and dishes we need to make every meal in the house (and a blender too!). The screened in porch was great to hang out in, especially during the thunderstorm one afternoon! We also really appreciated the beach chairs and wagon to bring our stuff to the beach. Overall it was a fantastic experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location near the beach is as close as you can get and ideal- literally walk out the door, across the street and down a short path and you are there. It's close proximity to the Coligny area is convenient and within walking distance.
The community that the house is located in is quiet and feels very safe.
The property is clean and spacious and stocked with plenty of pots, pans, and beach toys.
Cable TV with HDTV and Internet was all functional as was the air conditioning.
Our bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were very modern. Some of the decor was a bit dated in some of the rooms but everything was functional.
Only thing this place is missing is a outdoor cooking and eating area, however, it has a screened-in porch to relax in and a charcoal bbq if you need to grill something.
We will be back- highly recommended
The house was very spacious with a lovely kitchen and plenty of beach chairs. Literally a 2 minute walk from the beach and close to town as well. The internet did not work during our stay (do note that we didn't contact the owner to fix it bc it wasn't a priority to us) and the house smelled a bit stale. Overall its a good deal for the location and size!
House location is very good, it's a two minute walk to the beach and ten minutes to Coligny plaza, and accessibility within 20 minutes to almost every restaurant by car. Close to the lighthouse as well.
Quiet and safe neighborhood, ample tree cover and greenery
Rooms are spacious, appliances are functional and available.
Most basic supplies are readily available within house (including beach gear)
Mechanicals work great (HVAC, Water Heater, appliances etc)
Dated interiors, a bit damp smell. This is especially noticeable with the abundant fresh air supply the moment you walk out the door.
Found 3 instances of bugs on the second and last day of our 3 day stay. Though none of them were in the kitchen, I am not sure if that is some comfort especially with smaller kids in our group.
When homeowners were notified, we were told that it was known and they had a monthly visit from the "bug man", and that it may not be 100% bug free.
None of the baths (2) have any exhaust fans or their windows open (closed shut). No options for fresh air to circulate
Limited supply of toilet paper
Outside door just shuts abruptly and with a big bang - needs spring replaced or a stopper attached
The above points are very important, as on vacation these are the things we would love to have not to worry about. Probably would look at staying in a rental that is more appropriate, or a hotel on our next visit. Just the repeated bug sightings within the house made me remove two stars, as this is something that would not be acceptable in a commercial environment. We would love to visit again, knowing that this has been taken care of.
