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

Very Clean, fresh, relaxing and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. Upon opening the door , it was like walking into a different place. Your place was so clean and fresh and having the bright windows with the end unit was a plus. The master bedroom with the balcony was enjoyable each morning while having our coffee. I love the fact that you have a Keurig so we can have our own coffee flavors. Access to the beach was easy and quick. Thanks for the use of your place.

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

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Hilton Head and this Condo could not be any more prefect! It is beautiful and clean with multiple balconies and situated within walking distance of the beach, Coligny Beach Park, bike rentals, restaurants and more. The central location makes it perfect regardless of what/where you are planning on visiting. All of the rooms and comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could possibly want. The addition of the on property pool (right outside the back door) as well as a tennis court and two campground-style grills made this absolutely perfect for us. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Michael, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with family. Hilton Head is certainly a great place for a family vacation. Having the choice between a swim in the pool or the beach is a tough choice when both are so close. We hope you will enjoy the memories you made with your family throughout the days ahead.

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.
