About the property

You truly can't get much closer to the beach than this "Sandcastle".

The "Sandcastle" - Direct oceanfront home with stunning views of the Atlantic. The name Sandcastle originates from the incredible location of this home. It's one thing to be oceanfront, but this home is practically located on the beach. With only 20 feet between the pool and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Hilton Head Island, you can't get much closer to the beach the Sandcastle.

This 6 bedroom, 5 full bath home offers amazing views of the beach from 4 of the 6 bedrooms. The main living areas are located on the second level overlooking the pool and ocean with an impressive wall of windows and sliding glass doors. A gorgeous Savannah brick fireplace gives it a true southern touch the main living area. The second smaller sitting area is located on the ground level with chairs, game table with 4 chairs, desk, a small book collection for guests to enjoy during their stay as well as access to the pool & backyard.

oceanside of the second floor. Other features include high-speed internet, wood floors, vaulted ceilings, large dining room table, screened-in porch, laundry room with side-by-side washer & dryer and second refrigerator, private oceanfront heatable* pool and a gas grill.

The pool is approximately 51 feet long by 16 feet wide and can be heated during non summer months for an addition charge (ranging from $500-$1,000). One entire side of the pool is shallow (approx. 2 feet deep) which is great for children or those who just want to lounge in the pool. This pool receives sun throughout the day.

Great ocean views!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 14 and Sandcastle met our needs! Everyone had private space and felt quite comfortable. We cooked in most of the week and enjoyed our large kitchen table. The ocean views were spectacular! Crabbing and bike riding on the beach became a favorite for kids and adults! The only recommendation would be for more updated and comfortable porch furniture.

Great set up and location for large family, young kids!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 3 toddlers thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandcastle. The location on the beach is ideal, pool is great for small kids (half or so is very shallow), great location in Sea Pines for biking to Salty Dog, Lawton Stables, Harbour Town. This was our first beach home rental experience. Only complaints/things to consider for next time: the house was not well stocked with necessities for a week's stay (ie: trash bags, dish soap, cleaning spray, paper towel, toilet paper to last the week, etc). We had to supply many of those things that have been provided in other house rentals/VRBO/Air BnBs have provided in our past experience. Also had to buy laundry supplies and washed towels many times as linens are provided but there was not a surplus of towels for the number of guests we had in the home. If these are things you have come to expect from vacation rentals, be prepared to pack supplies from home or purchase along with your groceries. The finishes and furnishings were a bit dated, but reflective of the price compared to other similar rentals. Everything was very functional and sufficient. The views and deck and access to the beach more than made up for anything the decor was lacking. Worth noting for families with small children - there are no bath tubs in the house, only showers and a huge soaking/jacuzzi tub that was too big and deep to bathe toddlers in. The queen bedroom and bathroom detached from the house was not a desirable room for anyone in our party to take, so it went unused. It is accessible only by a separate set of stairs off of the back deck; this may appeal to some, but I don't think we realized just how separate it was from the house until we saw it in person. Overall, we had a fabulous stay and hope to return!

Exactly as expected.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was as expected: gorgeous view and access to the beach. The pool was warm and most agreeable. The furniture is somehow outmoded and the outside chairs could be repainted fresh...but that did not preclude a most enjoyable stay. The only negative point was the poor weather for the first three days of our stay, but there is not much that can be done about that. Stephanie was most responsive to our requests. We would go back anytime.

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Grey Widgeon is an outstanding property. Location, view, beachfront, and pool are so close and convenient. The house is very comfortable and making our week very enjoyable. I dont think you could find a better beachfront in Hilton Head. Stephanie Hoke was wonderful to work with, very attentive, responsive to any request, and full of great information and helpful hints about Hilton Head. Overall an outstanding property and property manager.
