Had a wonderful experience at this property. The location was fantastic, the house, grounds, pool & beach was everything we had hoped for and more!! With four couples and 6 grandchildren aged 2-8, there was something for everybody.

Kathy is just awesome and was a huge reason our vacation was successful! Hope very much to return next year

Best stay yet in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us from the great white north rolled in for 5 full days of perfect weather, accommodations, surroundings and golf! We had stayed in South Forest Beach twice before and Sea Pines several times (always on the beach front or second row). This beach house and surroundings were amazing. It was our 7th time down to Hilton Head and this was definitely the most fun. The house was perfectly situated directly beside the Grand Marriott Hotel, with many activities and amenities at the hotel included at N/C. It was the best of both worlds. Private accommodations with the hotel right next door! Bocce, pools, hot tubs, exercise facilities etc. steps away. Plenty of room for 12 people. Turn key facilities at the house, with great BBQ, pool, hot tub (and all worked great). Kathy (Manager) stopped in and introduced herself and showed us how to operate the pool, hot tub, etc and to make sure that everything was fine (very sweet lady). The house boasts an awesome Master Suite (separate house really c/w its own kitchen, very large bathroom and massive deck) ...........and equally notable, a fabulous separate games room c/w queen suite just off the main house c/w with bar, tv and plenty of lounging space. Great beach environment for biking, bocce, walking, running - whatever your passion. Outdoor fire pit and tons of wood for the cottagers in the mix. Would definitely go back.......... it's close to all of the action but private all the same.

Wedding at 5 Alder Lane

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to write and tell you how much we all enjoyed our time at 5 Alder Lane – where my daughter got married in November, 2015. The house was spectacular and we were able to accommodate all my family comfortably and the bride and groom loved their little get away on the top floor – well to be honest – we all really loved their little get away. And even though we were all in one house, we never felt cramped or crowded and there was space to be together and space of be alone if you wanted.

The wedding came together perfectly – after a beautiful ceremony on the beach, we walked back to the yard for the reception – we were able to set up a tent for the DJ and dancing with tables around it for guests in the far lawn and then put the caterer in the portion closer to the house.

We also had a great time inviting other family and friends in for an oyster cookout in the back yard one night, made great use of both of the decks and the pool area and the “game” room saw a lot of action. Thankfully the two people we put in that bedroom were heavy sleepers :) I can’t think of anything that would have made our stay or the wedding any better!!

Kathy, the property manager, was great. She was quick to respond after our initial contact and then met with my daughter who lives in the area to view the property and offered up many recommendations for possible vendors for the wedding. A couple questions came up while we were there and she responded quickly and efficiently.

The house is located right next to the Marriott Grande Ocean Resort and we were able to take full advantage of their amenities – as well as join in on any of the many daily activities that they offer to their guests – we were pretty busy with the wedding and everything – but we did make a wine glass painting class, a wine/cheese welcome and s’mores over the fire pits.

In addition, the location is between Coligny Plaza and Sea Pines which were both visited by many of our guests.

Best of both worlds - amazing beachfront home and all the amenities of a resort!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a glorious week in Hilton Head, using 5 Alder Lane as my home-away-from-home. This is a truly unique beachfront rental home in many ways. First, the kitchen, bedrooms, and baths are very spacious, comfortable, well equipped, and beautifully decorated. The grand master suite/bath and the game room are unbelievably luxurious. The house offers outdoor decks (one of which is huge), a pool and hot tub, several bars, pool table, spacious green yard with firepit, and a direct path to the beach. As if all that isn't enough, guests of this home can walk to the Marriott Resort next door and enjoy all of it's amenities as well! Through a special arrangement between the Marriott and the owner of 5 Alder Lane, we were able to swim at Marriott pools, join in on scheduled activities like jewelry crafts and beer tasting, rent bikes, play bocce ball and shuffleboard, and enjoy food, drinks, and music at a snack bar and Pool Bar Jim's (excellent frozen drinks!). Kathy, the property manager for 5 Alder Lane, was an extraordinary host. A long-time resident of Hilton Head, she provided helpful lists with advice and recommendations for our visit and met all of our needs in the home. I spent a fabulous week a this rental home with a group of close friends and had such a great time that I hope to return soon.

5 Alder Lane Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented 5 Alder Lane for our September, 2015 wedding. I cannot express how amazing this property is. We had several family/friends stay at the property and we were all able to have our own privacy but yet feel very close. The pool room is the perfect man cave. The grande master suite is beyond expectations. We visit Hilton Head every year on vacation and knew from the moment we toured the property that it was perfect for all of our needs. Kathy who manages the home is absolutely amazing, responsive, and informative. We recommend 5 Alder lane rentals for any occasion! And so happy we chose this as our wedding venue, we plan to come back soon!!
