About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)- 1300 Sq Ft

Welcome to our home away from home. We want to ensure that our guests enjoy all the comforts of home plus some more. You'll open the door to a nicely decorated home. The kitchen has upgraded stainless steel appliances with new cabinets. All the conveniences you'd expect in the kitchen I believe you'll find. Enjoy the fresh new hardwood flooring while you relax in the family room looking over the courtyard gardens.

The bedrooms are all freshly furnished. Our twin bedrooms have 2 twin beds, a large dresser, nightstand and a 26' flat panel LCD TV. Our guest bedroom has a queen bed with a large dresser, nightstand and a 26' flat panel LCD TV. Both of these rooms may share 2 bathrooms, a large full bath and a large 1/2 bath.

Our master bedroom is paradise. With a full queen bedroom furniture suite and a 26' flat panel LCD TV, you'll never want to leave the room. The master bathroom has been remodeled to include a state of the art shower, complete with spa, rainfall and hand shower sprayers.

Our living room also is completely furnished, contains a 37' flat panel TV and looks out on a peaceful lagoon with a fountain. You can sit on the balcony and relax listening to the subtle splashes of water.

Because we are an end unit, we have plenty of light in our Condo. There are 3 balconies in total, with the main one off the living room. The master has their own private balcony and a shorter balcony is also off the kitchen area.

We have one very unique feature that is rarely seen in condos and that is a state of the art air dehumidifier system. If you're an allergy sufferer, you'll definitely notice a difference in our condo, as the air is very clean and you don't have to worry about any musty smells that you may have experienced in other places you've stayed in.

Wireless Internet is always up and available for your use only in our condo and a passcode is provided. We also provide you with ROKU so if you desire to watch Netflix, Amazon, or other services, you may sign on with your accounts.

About Mark Wilson

One of the kids favorite activities is biking around Hilton Head Island. We've been coming to Hilton Head for 21 years now and love it. We've created a place for you and your family to enjoy for many years to come. Please come and stay in our condo, as we'd love to have you as our guests.

Mark Wilson purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mark Wilson chose Island Areas

We began our travels down south staying with our parents, but after a couple years, we decided to purchase a place as we knew this would be the place that eventually we would all gather for our family get-togethers. What a blessing. We wanted a place close to the beach so it is convenient to walk to and we wanted a location that was close to the activities but not too close so that you can have solitude if needed. This is the place.

What makes this condo unique

We've been able to get a place that is close to all the activity. Coligny Circle is a short couple blocks away, yet we have the privacy that you couldn't dream of.

Subject: Re: Your Stay at Xanadu Unit 5D

Hi Mark,

We had a fabulous time!!!

When we entered the Xanadu building, we thought it was an old building, but..... when we entered your condo

, it was like we stepped in paradise. OMG, it is a beautiful place, you must have spend a small fortune on all the upgrades, every single room is outstanding!

Love all the decorations, furniture,colors (so pottery barn style, which I love!) tv's, kitchen and oh my..... that shower.... LOVED IT!!!!

We had some bad luck with the weather, it rained a lot the first 3 days, but I didn't mind, because I can spend days inside when it's that cozy.

If we go back to Hilton Head, this condo is surely my first choice and I wil put a great review for you on VRBO.


By the way, do know the name of the paint color (grey) in the master bedroom, I am re-painting my livingroom and I love that color.

Thanks for letting us rent your place,

Carine Bourgeois-Otoka

Happy Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property was ok, a bit dated but kept up. The unit we stayed in was very nice, updated, and had everything we needed. For the cost, we feel the unit provided a great value to us. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This was our first experience staying in a place besides a hotel and our first experience at Hilton Head. We were very pleased with the condo. It was very clean and our family of 5 slept comfortably here. The unit is very quiet and family friendly. My kids enjoyed the small pool and the short walk across the road to the beach. This condo is right in the heart of everything. We rented bikes and rode to Coligny Plaza and to the beach easily. We will certainly be returning. Thank you for a relaxing, pleasant vacation.

Very nice stay in a nice condo

  • 5 of 5

The owner Mark and the rental office (Vacation Time) were friendly and helpful. The rental office is about 1 block from the condo so picking up the keys was easy/convenient.

The condo was very nicely maintained and updated. The kitchen was small but well stocked. We cooked most of our meals in the condo and didn't want for any supplies. All other rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable and the shower in the master bathroom was huge and awesome! The dehumidifier was also a nice feature as it helped keep the unit very comfortable.

The grounds of the complex were nicely maintained, our kids enjoyed the small but nice pool and we also used the BBQ grills for outdoor cookouts by the lagoon a couple of nights.

My only "gripe" about the building was that the elevator and some of the common areas smelled strongly of bleach or smoke depending on the day, but this was a very minor concern.

The condo's location was also great, about a 5 minute walk to the beach and a very convenient drive to many of the best restaurants and shopping areas around the island.

This was our first trip to Hilton Head and our family would recommend this condo for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Hilton Head is definitely a little piece of heaven. We work hard to ensure that our guests get the best experience with their stay at our condo and their expectations are exceeded. We're glad you enjoyed your trip and the use of our condo, and look forward to having you back. We have addressed the issue of the occasional bleech odors in the entry when cleaning with the building mgmt and were told this would be addressed. The Wilsons

Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time! The Wilson's have gone out of their way to ensure that their guests have a 5 star experience. My wife and I traveled with six of us in all including our two small children ages 5 and 7. Our stay began with a warm welcome from the rental office and continued with a sigh of relief once we opened the door to the condo and saw that it was exactly as advertised. As soon as we walked in, we were welcomed with the fresh scent of potpourri and near zero humidity!!! The unit was well appointed with comfortable furniture, quiet appliances and warm adjustable lighting. The pool is litterally right behind the 2nd floor unit and we were a comfortable walk to the beach for sunrise, sunset and in between. We were all well rested and relaxed during our entire visit. We couldn't have asked for a better unit or better service from start to finish.

Thank you!

Condo was modern and up to date. Kitchen was well stocked. Awesome shower in master. Nice to have a TV in each room. All furniture was comfortable. Convenient to Coligny and short walk to beach. Only negative thing was lobby had a musty smell. We will definitely consider this condo again when we return to Hilton Head. Owner was great and quick to answer any questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. We are glad you enjoyed our place. Our goal is to provide a "Marriott" like experience and have outfitted it accordingly. We are hoping that the Main Lobby will get a fresh coat of paint here shortly, but in the meantime its nice to know that our place is always fresh and clean, especially with our air purifying system.

Very Clean Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

This unit was very clean, was very sound proof from room to room, and had plenty of kitchen utensils. The security was a little extreme making it difficult with teenagers who didn't have a key and of course didn't want to stay by their parent's side. Many times of being locked out until someone noticed. Unit is placed in a very convenient place within the complex for access to car and bikes. The available beach cart was wonderful for the short trek to the beach. One thing we weren't prepared for is that the washer and dryer, although conveniently located close to the unit, is an additional fee. We had to really be on wet clothes and towel patrol for the vacation.

Owner's Response: Folks, We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hilton Head is such a wonderful vacation spot. Remember that you can always request a couple keys from the management company to the property, which should help with the access. We hope you'll be back. Much Appreciated The Wilsons
