"I have been travelling to Hilton Head Island for about 15 years. This was the first trip for just my wife and I (no kids) so we were looking for something smaller, such as a hotel, one bedroom condo, or studio/efficiency unit. And this Bluff Villa studio/efficiency unit was a great value and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there.
First let me say, contrary to what the previous reviewer stated, the AC unit worked perfectly. Being August the temperatures were well into the 90's but the AC unit kept the unit comfortable at all times. Everything was exactly as advertised. The murphy wall bed was very comfortable. We left it down the entire stay and it was not in the way of the kitchen/den areas. The kitchen was well equipped with all essential items. There is an electric surface range (no oven underneath), toaster oven, dishwasher, a sink with disposal, small microwave, nice size refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker, and coffee maker. The bathroom, although not large has a nice vanity and a full shower/tub. There is great water pressure and plenty of hot water. It would be nice if there was a clothes washer and dryer combo unit. But, we did use the small clothes washer and drying rack and it worked just fine. There is an iron/ironing board. Although wifi is not advertised, I was able to access wifi. The entry door to the unit has a Keyless Code Entry System which is very nice as you don’t have to carry a key all the time. The unit has everything needed for a comfortable vacation stay. This unit is perfect for two people. The full size sofa does have a pullout bed for two more.
The unit has a nice view through some pine trees of the Calibogue Sound. It is probably a 100 yard walk to the Calibogue Sound beach. You can walk up the beach 1/2 mile to where it becomes the Atlantic Ocean. Bluff Villas and this unit are adjacent to South Beach Marina. You are only steps from the marina, multiple restaurant and food options, shopping, nightly live outdoor entertainment, tennis, pool, bicycle rental, and miles of bicycle and walking trails. You can rent a bike for $30 a week. The marina also offers fishing, dolphin tours, jet-ski rentals, etc.
Finally, let me say that the owner was very pleasant to work with. She responded quickly to my emails and questions (and I had a lot). Payment via Paypal was simple. She provided all needed information. It was an easy process. My thanks to the owner for everything. I look forward to staying in your unit again in the future."
