About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

There are lots of condos on Hilton Head Island to rent, but ours has some great advantages:

LOCATION: Our villa is right across the street from the beach front properties but costs about half as much. In addition, we're less than half a mile from famous Coligny Plaza for all your shopping and grocery needs.

ACTIVITIES: Besides being near the best beach on the island, Xanadu Villas has a private pool, picnic area and tennis courts. You'll love having these areas almost all to yourself. In addition, bike rentals, kites, sightseeing and golf are all close to our location. Inside the condo we have games available as well as cable, DVD players, VCR's and Wifi in the living room and each bedroom.

LUXURY: Why go somewhere worn out when you can stay at our condo for the same price? The building has recently gone through a multi-million dollar remodeling so we updated our condo as well. The grounds are amazingly well kept and beautiful. Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, marble travertine tile floors and beautiful furniture await you.

SAFETY: Xanadu Villas only allows access into the gated parking lot and building through the electronic key fob you'll get with your keys. In addition, the courtyard can only be accessed through the building so only other guests will be on the grounds. And if steps are a problem for you, they won't be here. We occupy the first floor of the building and there are no steps from the parking lot to the entrance. Don't worry about lugging your luggage up three flights of steps. Just roll the suitcase in and start to relax.

SPACE: Most two bedrooms on the island are about 1000 square feet and some are even less than 900! Ours is one of the largest two bedrooms available at 1200 square feet. It's easy to feel the difference when you can move through the condo easily. A Queen bed in the Master Suite, a pair of twin beds in the second bedroom and a pullout couch in the living room will give you plenty of room for the whole family.

Pick up the key from our local rental agent whose office is just down the street. Week long rentals only. (Generally Saturday to Saturday.)

About David Braatz

My wife and I have been married for 23 years, but the beach at Hilton Head is the place we always come back to. Our three boys (ages 14, 12 and 8) love the beach and enjoy sandcastles, swimming and flying kites whenever we get there.

David Braatz purchased this condo in 2006

Why David Braatz chose South Forest Beach

We fell in love with Hilton Head Island about eight years ago and want to eventually retire to our condo.

What makes this condo unique

We think we're in the ideal location, right across the street from the beach and public access and just a few steps out the back door to the pool. The condo was recently refurbished and we decorated it ourselves.

Perfect Family Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the perfect location for your family! Just steps away from the beach, makes it easy to cart your kids back and forth from "home" to the beach. There's a great pool and picnic areas to grill out after your day at the beach!

Has potential but needs some updating

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this condo last year and came back for a second time because it is a great location to the beach and pool. But the condo could use a little updating. It has great potential with nice tile floors, granite countertops, and a lot of space but overall the place felt dirty. We arrived early on Saturday and were in the condo my parents rented right next door. No one showed up to clean this unit until a little before 3 and were done by about 3:30. And it was the 85 year old rental property manager that helped with the cleaning because one of the cleaning ladies didn't show up. Papers were left all over the desk from the previous renters the week before. The shower liner had an inch or so of black mold all across the bottom. The towels all had stains and holes in them. The mattresses were so loud every time you rolled over or got out of bed. This condo could be a great place to stay if it was freshly painted and a few updates. Old paint and filthy baseboards just gave it a dirty feel, which is a shame because this could be a really nice condo.

Where do you live?

Great place to relax and enjoy family and friends.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Location is perfect for our needs. Not far from the beach and/or shopping and restaurants. We have stayed in this unit twice and have enjoyed it. The only thing I would recommend is to update patio furniture with more comfortable furniture and new rugs so the outdoors can be enjoyed as much as the indoors. Also a little side note...the drains in the tubs need to be replaced. Just an idea. Overall, we loved it and would love to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Becky, glad you had a good time. We'll look into some updated outdoor furniture and the drains. Thanks again!

Great location and plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

Room was much bigger than expected, we had plenty of room for my husband, myself and 4 grown boys. Pictures did not do it justice. Being on the first floor was great, just a short walk to the pool out the back door and not far from the beach and Coligny plaza. Loved the bike trails which we could get on right in front of the condo, bike company had them waiting for us when we arrived and picked them up when we left. We rode our bikes to lunch and dinner several times. Kitchen was well equipped with plenty of space to eat. Condo was very quite and relaxing. Owner was very responsive and answered all of my questions.
