Wonderful for Ontario March break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for the March break week with our family. It was perfect for our active grandchildren and golfers and tennis players and bikers in our family. The owners answered all our questions. We'd love to come back!

Enjoyable 1st stay on Hilton Head Island

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as it was described but the pictures do not do it justice, it is beautiful! It is also extremely well appointed, the extra fridge, beach chairs and towels were a big help. There was more than enough room for me and 8 additional family members. Not only did we enjoy the house, but also the pool, hot tub and grill. The location is perfect, the house is a short walk from the beach, general store, restaurant and bike rental. It is located on the corner of a quiet cul de sac. This was my first trip to Hilton Head Island and also my first vacation home rental but it won't be my last!

This was one of the best weeks ever spent on vacation. The home was wonderful and fully equipped for whatever adventure anyone wants to take. We enjoyed the beach, pool, hot tub, deck, grill and many other amenities. Quiet area and very beautiful with hanging moss from trees surrounding the home along with the southern wildlife. Shopping is close by, whether it be to stock the kitchen with food for meals or shopping for clothes, unique gifts, etc. It was very spacious as 12 people stayed together. The walk to the beach was short and walking over the bridge to get there was fun for the children. Everyone said they would definitely go back. Excellent place to relax, renew, and enjoy quality family time.

Wow, we had THE BEST vacation ever!! The house is set up perfect. The kids had a great time playing in the pool, and the hot tub was so relaxing. The beach is so beautiful and just a short walk from the house, very convenient. We loved walking over the bridge on our way to the beach. Renting bikes for the week is so easy, and the rides were outstanding!! Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your house!! I will be telling my friends.
