About Kathryn Howle

One summer before college I worked in Hilton Head at a time when there was only one hotel and downtown Sea Pines just had the lighthouse! Many vacations on the Island later . . . the Hospitality Industry became my life and as a corporate event planner creating memorable high-level meeting experiences, this warm and inviting condo just drew us in!

Kathryn Howle purchased this villa in 2013

Why Kathryn Howle chose Island Areas

Vacation is all about the sand, the sea, the Carolina moon and of course, the sea breezes at South Forest Beach! Spend time with family and friends, enjoy all the nearby entertainment options or concentrate on quiet time reading and relaxing. Courtside offers a great location to the traveler, and we enhance your stay by offering a warm, inviting and relaxed environment where you can enjoy your treasured time away to create your own memories.

What makes this villa unique

Enjoy the colors of the ocean and of weathered driftwood that blend to create the personality of this condo. It actually makes you FEEL that you are on vacation at the beach, equipped with all the extras of home. From the front entrance foyer to the covered balcony where you view the pool and palm trees, it results in a mood change ....and you just exhale! Consistently upgraded and immaculately maintained, we take pride in creating a environment for our guests to experience that includes all the detailed touches of home.

Owner's Response: Kari, thanks for your review and I enjoyed reading your daughter's perspective on her first vacation at Hilton Head in our guest book . . . too cute! Such a unique and interesting take from her eyes! Thanks for sharing her thoughts and words. Hope also that you received the package where we returned the items you left behind! I enjoyed working with you on your preliminary plans as well as being happy to coordinate the return of your valuables to you. I know that they were important to you and your family. Let us know should your travel plans return you to Hilton Head! Thanks for your rental.

Great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was fully stocked with all kinds of extras! We enjoyed our time with family here. The pool just outside was great and very private. We almost had it to ourselves. The walk to the beach wasn't long and was nice and level as well as shaded. Our 3 year old grandson pulled our beach wagon almost the whole way before deciding it was hard work. The biggest negative would be the stairs. Carrying small kids up and down several flights several times a day is very tiring. The circular ones off the balcony were especially difficult to maneuver. I would not recommend this unit if you have knee problems. Everything was clean and worked well. It was very convenient to Coligny and Bilo. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Courtside #21! Very well stocked and clean. Easily the best stocked condo we have ever stayed it. Our Family loved the foosball table, kiddie lacrosse sticks and it was great to use the grill for dinners. Was s 0.3 mile walk to the beach, but the owner supplied a great wagon to stack chairs, etc., so wasn't bad to walk. We stayed as a family with our 3 teenagers, so everyone pitched in to carry stuff! We would absolutely recommend this condo. Easy biking/walking distance to Coligny Plaza for dining and shopping. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Great Villa! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this villa for 3 months (late Jan to late Apr 2016) and we really enjoyed it. It is very clean and comfortable and very well maintained. It is very well furnished with lots of seating if you wish to entertain a few friends. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the utensils you could require, even for a lengthy stay like ours. The master bedroom was spacious and comfortable, with an attached bathroom. The villa is in a great location - very near the beach, with lots of grocery stores and restaurants nearby. Access to the beach is just a short walk or bike ride down the road. In the past, we have stayed in other villas in this area of the island, but this one was our favorite. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and very easy to deal with. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: You were great guests to work with both in the planning stages as well as during your visit. Coming from one who visits every year, we are so pleased that you enjoyed our Villa and we appreciate your taking such good care of it. It really sounds like you enjoyed all that Hilton Head has to offer! Starting the New Year out in Hilton Head is a great idea and we hope to be able to accommodate you, our "neighbors to the north", again in the future. Thank you for your complimentary review and for being wonderful rental guests! Warm regards.
