Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from Hilton Head after a nice vacation week. The house has a great location, just steps from the beach. The fenced in yard kept Otis, the Boston Terrier, constrained. We noticed that the kitchen was much better equipped than our previous stay in 2013.

We would definitely return.

Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are blessed to live on Hilton Head Island year round. When our family of seven decided to visit us we needed more room for them to stay comfortable for the week long vacation. It is never easy viewing homes on a web site. Sometimes the pictures do not do it justice, or worse, sometimes the house doesn't live up to expectation. In our case, we were thrilled with this beach house.

Everything was provided for, especially in the kitchen. There were plenty of pots and pans to cook with as well as cooking utensils and coffeepots (more than one)!

Our family LOVED this house! There were three adults and four children. I think the best part was the sleeping arrangements. Most houses offer twin beds in a multitude of rooms; however this home had only one room with a twin beds which made it great for the adults to sleep comfortably. The location was absolutely superb! The pool was a definite plus. We would recommend this lovely home to any family, regardless of children. We would definitely consider renting this property next year if our family decides to come visit us again!

Mixed Feelings

  • 4 of 5

The pluses for this home are:

- pet-friendly, with a fenced front yard

- perfect home for 2 or small groups

- screened porch off the living room is great for relaxing with your coffee and newspaper

- cozy living room with large couches

- master upstairs is comfy with large bathroom and huge walk-in shower

- short, short walk to the beach

The minuses for this home are:

- the management describes a well-equipped kitchen - it is not at all. It is a POORLY equipped kitchen. Although there's plenty of silverware, dishes, glasses and coffee mugs there's next to nothing useful for cooking on the stove or oven. Bring your own pots & pans and sharp knives if you want to cook during your stay. We found a cast-iron skillet with rust included. Bring your own salt/pepper, spices, coffee filters, trash bags, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, soaps, cleaners, etc.

- the corner of Ibis & Dune Lane is BUSY with cars and work trucks going thru the neighborhood. There are quieter locations.

- the public access to the beach is right next to the house that a lot of people use

- although the TV's are updated, the remotes are in dire need of replacements.

- the keyless entry is confusing with no detailed instruction on how to lock it up behind you, it took us 2 days to figure it out. The management states it'll lock behind you, but it does not, so ask the management to help.

- cell phone reception is poor at the home, but that's typical in some properties on the island.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this home.
