Purchased at the end of 2014, this fully equipped and furnished condo has been totally renovated from top to bottom to serve as our personal family retreat as well as to share with friends and soon-to-be friends interested in renting a perfectly located and priced vacation spot. The condo is a short 7 minute walk to the beach.
The condo is located on the second floor (no elevator available) of the building for a quieter experience. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with pillow-top bedding and plenty of storage space which includes two large closets, 2 dressers, and two nightstands. There is a renovated master bath with walk-in shower. The second bedroom includes a queen bed, closet, a dresser and nightstand. Need to catch up on work or check email? The second bedroom includes a desk and a computer with Internet access. The renovated full hall bath is located just outside the second bedroom.
The condo living area includes a coffee table large enough on which to play games while comfortably seating 6 people on the two club chairs, a love seat and sleeper sofa. Wireless Internet access is provided along with a new 40", 200+ cable channel TV. A fully appointed kitchen provides all you need to cook your favorite foods using the all new stainless steel appliances. In addition, the villa includes a full-sized washer and dryer. An entryway table provides baskets for shoes, sandals, flip-flops and other sandy beach items.
Ceiling fans have been installed in each room along with all new lights, electrical wiring, light switches, a programmable thermostat, and multiple new smoke detectors. Safety and comfort are key in our home.
The Island House complex has its own large, private fenced-in pool and a bike storage rack for bike rentals. Four bikes are included in your rental and are located in the main parking area near the mailboxes. Additional bikes may be rented at any of the many local bike rental sites located throughout the island.
Eating out on Hilton Head can be difficult only because there are over 135 restaurant options to choose from. You have only to walk across the street from the complex to experience Cajun, Mexican or short-order fare all located next to the BI-LO grocery store. Whatever you crave, there is a restaurant with your style of cuisine and within your price range less than a mile from the complex. The same goes for Publix, Piggly Wiggly, Harris Teeter and BI-LO grocery stores if you are in the mood to shop and cook it yourself.
Hilton Head is perfect for just relaxing with family and friends out on the soft sandy beach located a 6 minute walk from the complex. Should you want a more active vacation there are 60 miles of public pathways and nature trails which pedestrians and cyclists can enjoy on the island. There are 12 miles of the world's finest beach that you can ride at low tide to enjoy the beautiful coastline on your bicycle.
There are over 240 tennis courts, 24 golf courses, 3 miniature golf courses, 3 movie theaters and 6 public and 3 private marinas on the island. Depending on the time of year there are theatrical and music productions, the Heritage Golf Classic, marathon and half-marathons, a wine festival, a parade and Gregg Russell under the Liberty Oak in Harbor Town entertaining adults and children alike. A ferry can provide transportation to several local islands and Savannah to save drive time and broaden your exploration of the area.
