Spacious and comfortable. Lots of stairs!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 13 enjoyed the open floor plan where we could all be together without being on top of each other. Beds were nice. Large bedrooms! The pool area was very nice. The kitchen could use more silverware. We exchanged the propane tank because it ran out the 2nd time we grilled and Island Getaways reimbursed us immediately. Cons: More attention to cleaning (dirty rugs, tables, silverware, cold air returns). The picture shows a boardwalk path to the beach but it is NOT part of this property. Our path was uneven and difficult for our older parents. No direct view of the ocean. Overall, our stay was comfortable and a great time was had by all. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Island Getaway's people were friendly, informative and helpful. Thank you for sharing your Island home with us!

Great for multiple families

  • 4 of 5

This place was great for multiple families!! All rooms have their own bathroom and there is plenty of living area. Some of the furnishings need a little TLC, but they had all the basics you need! Great proximity to the beach. Easy walk even with young kids!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the amenities we offer. The home is very roomy for multiple families, if you want privacy for your family there is definitely privacy to be had and the beach is much closer than most second row homes:) We are replacing the furniture this year, the items are on order and we are awaiting the arrival of them so we can move the old out and put in the new furnishings. So next year when we see you it will be new and refreshed. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Owner's Response: Susie thank you again for returning to stay with us, glad you enjoyed your stay again:) We have done some painting updates to the home this year and will be replacing all the furniture in the living area, we have been told the couch is getting very worn and apologize if a rip has started. We are having the palm tree chairs reupholstered and the couches and love seats completely replaced this year. So if you return to stay with us next year all that will be new. We apparently were having an issue with the A/C unit the guests that checked in after you phoned and we sent out the heating and cooling people that day, please let us know in the future if you have any issues with it so we can get someone to take a look, the house should stay cool and not be overly warm for our guests. We appreciate your feedback and thank you again, hope to see you back next year.

Wonderful! Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great home. My family and I stayed and loved it. The house is very large so each person had their own space. The views are great. The pathway to the beach is just a few steps from the front of the house. We loved the pool. Quiet location. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

Great home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this wonderful beach house and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Everyone in the group that was there last year said it felt warm and cozy like coming home. Any issues that we had the prior visit was definitely taken care of this time (new grill)(new pots and pans) even the kitchen appliances were upgraded, sodded lawn, additional patio table and chairs. Kathy is wonderful to rent from , she 's very attentive to her guest needs. The home also was very clean.. with plenty of new pillows and extra blankets. The beach access has its own private path across the driveway that is literally a few minutes from the beach that is located in a quiet section of the beach that has (no) public access. Coligny is a short bike ride up the beach with a grocery store and oodles of shops and restaurants. I'll definitely be back with my gang and wouldn't hesitate to refer this home to anybody whose looking for a GREAT vacation home. Thank you Kathy for sharing your home with us again. Hope you and Michelle have a wonderful summer.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home was wonderful, quite street, little traffic, safe. My grandsons loved the pool and the beach path. We rented bikes and was able to ride on all over town and the beach. There is some upkeep such as a roof leak in a small area of living room with hard rain and the balcony upstairs is in need of cleaning and painting but overall our family found it very comfortable, clean and had what we needed for a great vacation. Thanks Michelle and Kathy, we will certainly consider coming back again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and loved our home. We will have to have someone check on the small leak, and get the upstairs porch cleaned up, that area gets so much on it from the trees, etc located right there. We really hope to have you again and appreciate your great feedback!!! Take care of yourself and hopefully we will talk for your next years stay at Hilton Head.
