Our entire family is in aviation in the Philadelphia area. We first found the little gem called Hilton Head in 1978 when visiting the Grumman American (now Gulfstream Aerospace) factory in nearby Savannah, GA. We run a flight school and air charter company in Northeast Philadelphia.

Our family has over 35 memorable years owning this property. Hilton Head truly is our second home and first in our hearts. So many of our fondest memories have happened here and in this villa. We love it so much that we want to share it with folks who want to create similar memories for themselves and their families for years to come.
Ideal secluded ground floor patio just steps from the pool. Perfectly situated so as not to hear the tennis courts.
Loving the location and the condo! Everything is perfect. Owner was very easy to work with. Thanks for a great vacation!
We chose this condo when we booked our vacation based on the reviews and location, and the price was reasonable. It is close to Coligny Plaza and a short walk to South Forest Beach which is a nice beach that is not overcrowded, however there were several issues with the condo itself that we were not expecting based on the reviews. When we arrived, there were towels on the floor and the condo had not been cleaned from the prior guests' stay. We did notify the owner and the cleaning staff arrived about an hour and a half later, however the cleaning person did a marginal job. Additionally, neither of the tubs/showers and one of the bathroom sinks did not drain and the tubs would fill full with water while showering. We additionally found that the bed frame in the main bedroom was broken and there were multiple light bulbs that were out. The cable was not working although this was the least of our worries, and we did notify the owner of all these issues. We were surprised to arrive to all of these issues based on the prior satisfactory reviews.
I have known the family who owns this condo for over 30 years. They are wonderful people. Their condo was a fantastic spot for my family to enjoy a much needed vacation over the 4th of July holiday week. The pool is just steps away from the sliding glass doors which made it super convenient for us. The beach is a little bit of a walk, but not too far that it isn't manageable. And what a lovely beach it is. Tons of room to spread out, the water was very warm and calm, small waves, we were able to float around for a long time. There is a supermarket close by in a small shopping center with lots of great restaurants and shops, plus the Coligny Beach and Shopping area isn't far at all. The condo itself had all of the amenities of home, plus it has brand new carpeting. We highly recommend this condo for a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We hope to get back again someday soon. Thanks again for everything! :-)
Owner is pleasant & very accommodating. I come back every year for the cleanliness & location to the beach. Owner continues to upgrade something every year. Flat screen TV, new carpets & flooring just to mention the last year or two. Weather was great as well. We spent most of our time on the beach, afterwords we could keep our eyes on the kids in the pool from the sliding glass door. We never moved the car once we got there. Everything was a 5 minute bike ride away (supermarket, 20 restaurants for dinner lunch or breakfast, beach, coligny. ) We met another couple on the beach who stayed at Island House & they mentioned noise from the nearby tennis court. We were backed up to the pool & heard no tennis noise at all. Loved being on the first floor & walking straight out the back door to the pool. I would never stay in an any upstairs unit at Island house
Great location. Easy walking distance to beach and pool in backyard. Had some problems with pet odor, but owner took care of it!!!
We spent a very relaxing week here with our grandkids. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Clean unit and quiet neighborhood. The pool was very clean, however it is quiet a walk to the beach. Would Stay Again!!
We had a very comfortable and quick visit to get our grand baby fix. The condo was clean and conveniently located. Perfect for our neefs. Thank you, thank you.
