Perfect for family vacation!! Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have made a better choice for my first time renting a property for a family vacation! We had 4 families (9 adults and 6 children ages 5-14). This spacious home had plenty of room to spread out for the kids to play, to have family games, dinners etc. The kitchen was amazing! It was extremely well-stocked with everything we could possibly need.

Even though the weather was chilly (Dec. 27- Jan. 1) the hot tub was used daily! Would love to come back sometime to enjoy the pool, deck and screened in porch. Beautiful property!!!!!

We've stayed in this home twice and are looking forward to returning again! It is a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just what we need to accommodate our family! The location is great and we thoroughly enjoyed to our stay. The back yard has lots of space for yard games and the pool w/spa for a relaxing stay. The kitchen/morning room accommodates a large family gathering really well and all the windows give so much light on those sunny days! Bedrooms are roomy & spaced out on 2 floors, with ample bathrooms for a large group. Close to beach access, just a short walk or bike ride away. All the amenities make for a great time together!

This is a Review of the Owner

  • 5 of 5

We were looking forward to this spacious home on the lake offered by Donna Bartkus in Hilton Head, SC But due a very rude lady called IRMA, who wanted to visit the South at the same time. The island was evacuated during our scheduled vacation time.

But I can say it was a pleasure communicating with Donna Bartkus. She responded to all inquiries within a timely manner. She anticipated every need so it was very little information regarding the property that required additional information. She was willing to work with special request, I have no doubt that this property is as lovely as presented because Donna was very professional, courteous, fair and accomadating. She takes pride in making sure your vacation will be an enjoyable experience. I'd highly recommend doing business with her

Hopefully your vacation will not be interrupted by the likes of IRMA or HARVEY. Thank you Donna for your understanding and professionalism!

2nd year in a row

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, great location. Easy walk to the beach. Pool is always nice to have, when not enjoying the beach. Only criticism are the beds were not as comfy as hoped. Would highly recommend this location to others.

Owner's Response: We were very surprised to see the comment regarding the comfort of the beds. We have stayed with many friends and family over the years and everyone claims how comfortable the beds are and how restful their nights are. We are sorry the beds did not meet this guests expectations and will review their comfort level on our return in October.

This home is first class in every way. Has every amenity that anyone would need. It is very comfortable with a great sun room, deck and beautiful pool. The owners are also first class and so easy to work with. I hope I can come back to this house again in the future.
