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!

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.

Best Locale on NFB

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for Easter week 2015 and had a blast. The proximity to the beach, to Coligny plaza (groceries/ ice cream/ restaurants) was incredible. Everyone had their own room and the rooms well appointed. Must do the Big Bamboo and Ice Cream Cone.

Luxury & good times by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the most delightful 17 Avocet every spring for the last 3 years. It is a house that is perfect for our large family who are ready for relaxation at the beach and good times. We pass just 3 homes to get to the beach and we never use our cars since the house is just a minutes walk from the coffee shop, restaurants and grocery store in Coligny Plaza. The home is always perfectly ready when we get there and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. The hip furniture and overall cool feel of the house brings us back every year... For good times off the beach we love cocktails, live music and dining at The Big Bamboo Cafe just 2 minutes away.
