Christmas week stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group in the home (8 adults and 7 children - 3 in cribs) over the week and it was perfect. The street was rarely traveled so the kids could safely ride bikes without cars and there was plenty of room for all to sleep. The beach is a very short walk so we were able to brave the cold and get down there every day.

COULD Be a nice home if it was maintained

  • 2 of 5

Doors falling off bathroom cabinets

Poor lighting

Stove falling in

Walls messed up in bedrooms from beds

Furniture needing replacing

Bedding in poor shape

Decor so outdated

Pictures must be really old house looked nothing like vrbo site

Mold in one shower

Not cleaned very well

No broom to sweep with

Pool area was so gross

Trash behind and beside pool room

Could be a beautiful home if taken better care of and updated

Spoke to rental company and the owners haven’t followed through with updates

Nice access to beach and close by to things is a positive

Owner's Response: First, I assure you that we take every review seriously and want to learn and improve. I wish you had reported these issues upon check-in as we request, rather than after departure. We could have dealt with the concerns that were valid and improved your stay. I had our property manager check the property after your review and take some photos for me. Some of the issue you raise are valid – some are not. There was 1 cabinet door coming off. It had not been previously reported and is being fixed today (an easy fix). There is tons of lighting in the home. Some are on dimmers so perhaps you didn’t have them turned up. There is no issue with the stove. Granted, we went with a coil cooktop after replacing 2 ceramic ones due to guest damage (shattered), but it works well and is not damaged in any way. One bedroom has minor damage to the walls because the bed have been moved and the wrought iron bedframe gouges the walls. This is not the first time and we repair and repaint this annually (generally during the offseason at the beginning of the year). Bedspreads are replaced on condition and we do plan to replace in 2 bedrooms during the off-season. The bedding is otherwise in good condition – all pillows were even replaced earlier this year. Décor is not outdated and some furniture is replaced every year. This year we replaced the main TV and the entertainment center. The downstairs living area was replaced 2 years ago and we plan to update the upstairs living area this off-season even though it is in fairly good condition. Photos are mostly up-to-date and accurate, except the kitchen, which does show the old ceramic cooktop. Local staff also report there were pool toys left in the pool room but no trash. I have asked them to remove the toys – although many guests ask for them. As you can see from the numerous other reviews this year, this is a nice home and the issues mentioned in this review are in some cases either not valid or are significantly exaggerated.

Great house, short walk to the beach. Great for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. The beach was only a short walk to the end of the street. The house had plenty of room to spread out. The house is far enough away from some of the condos, so we did not feel crowded on the beach. The pool was a nice reprieve from the beach and the sun. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here.

Nothing short of fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

The listing did not do this home justice! It more than satisfied our needs. (Two families 4 adults / 5 children.) PLENTY OF SPACE for everyone. So many areas and each with their own character and comfort. We loved being this close to the beach and having our own private pool was the best. We will definitely plan another vacation stay at this spectacular Hilton Head gem!

Nice floor plan for families

  • 5 of 5

It is a perfect home for families. We have been going for the past seven years with kids and grandkids. House is built for family fun and memories. Steps to the beach, pool for hanging out, and short bike ride to restaurants!
