Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week-long stay at "Island Getaway" was a great pleasure. It is spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for our family of 15 (7 adults, 2 college students, and 6 kids of ages ranging from 9 to 16). The location is perfect, a two minute walk down a secluded street to one of the best beaches in the area, and also within easy walking distance of groceries, hardware, all kinds of shops, and Coligny Park. A couple of minor things did not work when we first checked in, but Jeremy and his colleagues took care of them right away--they were friendly, helpful, and prompt. We would recommend Island Getaway to anyone who wants to really enjoy a vacation on Hilton Head Island.

Perfect location and great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Both this house, the owners and the management company are amazing. We had a large group, difficult dates (around July 4th holiday), were booking last minute and traveling with babies. I thought finding anything on or near the beach would be impossible. Pat, the owner, is amazing. She made it so easy for me and worked with us on any question or issue we had. She also helped to accommodate our two small babies, which was a great help. The house is in the best possible location - a few hundred feet from the beach with the access walk about 3 houses down. It's also just across the street from great shopping, a grocery store, restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, etc. Just perfect. The house itself is like a little activity park. There is a small pool, a hot tub, ping pong, games, a small putting green and I believe there are horseshoes as well. The rooms and bathrooms are very nice and manage to give each couple/family their own space. The kitchen is well equipped, but some of the cooking equipment could use a little updating. I'm sure with a ton of guests coming through, it's tough to keep up with it. Bring a couple of casserole dishes and you'll be set! I can't recommend this house enough. We loved it and I'm sure you will too!

Fabulous location beats out small quirks with house

  • 4 of 5

I would absolutely stay in this house again. We rented this house for my husband's 30th birthday and had a revolving group of friends come throughout the week. The house fit 13 adults comfortably with room to spare at our highest capacity. Also plenty of room for everyone to hang out in the living room/dining room area and lots of room to spread out in the pool area, upper deck and putting green! But the location is what made this house so amazing, steps from the beach, steps from Coligny Plaza with the grocery store, cafes and of course Frosty Frog. We had a few minor issues-dishwasher wasn't attached to the countertop so would almost fall out if you pulled out a rack, doors sticking, broken chair, garage door not opening, broken shelving in the fridge but the company was very responsive through their portal and sent someone out the next day. One bedroom downstairs is a little odd as it's the most convenient exit to the pool area unless you want to attempt the spiral staircase which can get tricky when wet. We also can't really comment on the hot tub as we never went in, the weather was too nice! The pool was lovely, the swim up bar is a perfect shaded spot to cool down. There were quite a lot of ants around the pool area but a little bit of Raid took care of that. We rented bikes which is highly recommended as they will drop them off and pick them up at the house and then people are free to go as they please. We also highly recommend beach chairs from the life guards as it saves you wrestling with a beach umbrella and all the other gear and guarantees your spot everyday! Overall an amazing trip that we will remember for years to come.

Great House for Big Family

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family, which had lots of kids and lots of adults. The main living area was big enough for us to be comfortable, while attached to the deck. The pool and game room provided plenty of entertainment for everyone. I would only suggest a fan for the game room, since it didn't get good ventilation. The location was prime: three minutes from the beach and three minutes from the shops and live music! We would definitely love to come back to this house!

Great location on Hilton Head

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family reunion. We were able to walk to many of our activities due to its strategic island location at Coligony Circle.

nice but needs some maintenance

  • 4 of 5

We planned a 7 day stay for 14 family members, some young (8months, 2,4,7,9) and some young adults (33-45) and those of us who were wise in age (60's). The vacation/celebration was wonderful. The location is beautiful (short walk to ocean, short walk to shopping). We did have a few minor problems (internet/TV was not working when we arrived) and then we had an air conditioning problem on the last day. The management staff was helpful and concerned about the problems. They returned our calls promptly and made sure we got what we needed and tried to be sure we had a great time. I would work with them again because they were so attentive and responded to our needs. This house needs a little overall maintenance to make it a super stay but it was reasonable for the area and very roomy which was important to us. The pool is nice and well located for a family (easy site line to swimming kids). We cook all our meals and the kitchen is nicely laid out. the number of pots and pans was not quite adequate for the number of people the house holds but we are unusual because we love to cook and not eat out. We loved the laundry option because we had plenty of laundry to do. I think that downstairs bedroom that opens to the pool should be another family area because we would have used it that way but I do understand that they use it as a bedroom so that more people can stay. Please update the hot tub and I will come back to this particular house.
