"My husband and I honeymooned in Hilton Head 37 years ago. While other villa/condo units have become run-down, the owner of this unit in Heritage Villas has remodeled and made his unit even better. It is everything he says it is, and more. There is a beautiful kitchen with new countertops and every cooking item and small appliance needed. Between the foyer and kitchen is a huge laundry room. W/D, dishwasher and microwave seem new, or work like new! The fridge has an ice maker which works quickly. The dining area comfortably seats six and is beautifully decorated. The living area has a nice wide-screen TV, and a shelf below the glass coffee table with all the newest activity and restaurant guides. Be sure to look at the Restaurant guide which shows menus and happy hour/early bird special hours. If you can take advantage of an early bird special, there are some great deals. We enjoyed dinner at the Chart House, which has returned to it's new location on the Island. We enjoyed a very great special there which included choice of soup or salad, entree, and one of their fabulous desserts (mud pie is a favorite). Other places we enjoyed were Alexanders,
the restaurant at the new Plantation Club, which is just gorgeous and has a fantastic wine list. The Old Fort Pub and Truffles were great. We did not have a chance to eat at The Crab Shack, a favorite of ours in Sea Pines. The owner is spot on with all his recommendations for things to do, see, and where to eat. Sea Pines is such a great location because you have everything you need there. I personally have to see all the shops around the lighthouse when I go. Our weather in October was perfect, a lot less humid than summer but warm. Being in the end unit is really great. You have private parking around the corner at the end of the building. It's also very quiet and clean. All that the owner tells you is true and more. Having soft, better-than-hotel quality sheets already on your bed and firm nice pillows is wonderful! The towels are so sumptuous, they are like those of a 5-star hotel, and the bath amenities of shampoo, wonderful-smelling soap, toothpaste and even plenty of toilet paper was so nice to have. There was also a hair dryer in each bathroom upstairs. Payment was very easy directly with the owner, and he will gladly tell you anything else you'd like to know. We'd like to come back next year for TWO weeks!"
