Overview

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.

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.



PS:



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,

The Best Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 year old, 6 year old, my mother and me and my wife) absolutely loved our stay at this well cared for, beautifully furnished condo. The location was perfect with just a short walk to the beach each day and a nice bicycle ride to shops.

When we chose to this place, we were not looking too closely at the extras. We just wanted to be within walking distance of the ocean without the oceanfront price. But here, you're getting a lot for what you pay. We were not expecting a beautiful shaded swimming pool which we used everyday after the beach. We loved that we could walk just 40 feet to a tennis court to play. Our kids went nuts over the big shower in the Owner's bedroom that had incredible water pressure and four jets hitting you from the sides. We didn't realize how nice it was that we had multiple balconies since this was a corner unit giving us extra privacy and a more open feel. Even the thermostat was an unexpected touch of luxury as it was a Nest (I think) and made it easy to adjust up and down whenever we wanted.

The furnishings are beautiful as well from the leather chairs and couches to the well thought of furniture and accents in the bedrooms. The owner (who was always accessible and very hospitable) has thought of everything. For instance, there were two coffee pots: one old kind with filters and the other a Keurig. They provided us with more than enough dishwashing soap and bath soaps and shampoos for the entire week. The towels are nice and plush. The internet, Roku, and cable were all included and made things even more enjoyable.

But beyond the accommodations, for us, what really matters is the memories we made this week. That is the #1 reason I highly recommend this condo and this owner to you. Your children will love it as ours did (our oldest was begging us to go back to this place every year). Hilton Head is also incredible. If you have kids, go to Harbour Town for the 8pm concert (one of the best I've seen), go to A Lowcountry Backyard for the best meal you'll have all week, and bring your bikes as there are bike trails everywhere!

All in all, this condo is the best deal for the money. We'll be back.

Mark was excellent to deal with and the condo was great. Plenty of room and just a short distance to the ocean. We wanted to take that awesome shower home with us! Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Hilton Head with my teen children and their friends. We had an amazing time and the condo was absolutely perfect! I couldn't have asked for a better place and I will definitely book again. Has everything we needed. The management company was extremely pleasant and even called me on my way down from Ohio to make sure I had instructions to get into condo as I was arriving after office hours. Five stars for sure!

Wonderful First Time Week in Hilton Head!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Hilton Head and this condo was perfect for our family! It was very well kept and the owner was wonderful to answer any/all questions we had during our stay. We enjoyed the tennis courts, pool, and fabulous location---right in the middle of everything and right across the street from the beach--while we were there! The check in/out was so easy compared to other places we have stayed that we most certainly will consider coming back again next year! Thank you, Mark, for making our first time stay in Hilton Head so memorable and wonderful! You have done a great job at keeping this condo beautifully decorated and up to date. We also appreciate all the recommendations you gave us on bike rentals (Pedals for sure!) and things to do in the evenings (fireworks, Gregg Russell at Harbour Town, dolphin tour with our kids, etc.) as we tried nearly everything you suggested and it just made the whole trip a wonderful first-time adventure! (I would also highly recommend Park Place Cinema, for any movie lovers, as they have all reclining seats inside the theater!!) You went above and beyond, Mark, and we appreciated it all so much!

Owner's Response: Vacations are the investments that can create memories to last a lifetime. We are so happy that your family enjoyed our place and that it provided you with all the conveniences you should enjoy while on vacation. I agree that the location is hard to beat, being so close to Coligney and the beach. I'll have to take my family to Park Plaza Cinemas next time we are down! We hope to see you next year! The Wilsons
