About the property

Island House Villa Description

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. The Savannah / Hilton Head International airport is 45 minutes away and there is a local airport just 6 miles away on the other end of the island.

During the summer season the condo rents Saturday to Saturday, 7 night minimum!!

Wonderful and comes with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Found is really a wonderful place to stay! It is very nicely decorated with a beach/ocean theme all throughout the condo and right away makes you feel at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make your own meals. It also has plenty of storage space, not just in the kitchen but throughout the whole condo!

Joy quickly responds to any questions and sent us all the information we needed to make arrival and check in as easy as possible.

We have stayed at many VRBO rentals on HHI but this is by far my favorite. It is extremely clean, cosy, and has a great location very close to the beach (only minutes by bike or walk). The condo also comes with bikes! So no need for bike rentals!

We were only able to stay a few nights, but would love to come back and stay for a longer time! Thank you Joy for letting us stay in this lovely place!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Although most of our time was spent out and about, we always looked forward to coming home to this beautifully decorated property. We didn't need for anything; it was very well equipped and after a long day we always looked forward to relaxing in the comfortable and inviting beds. Thank you again, Joy, for sharing your property with us. Hoping Florence won't be as destructive as predicted and she turns back the way she came.

Owner's Response: Pamela, I am so glad you enjoyed your trip. Please come again. I think Florence is going to hit further north and HHI will be spared. Joy

Would go back

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and extremely comfortable! We enjoyed using the bikes and that was a fantastic way to see the island. I rented the unit last minute and the owners were very helpful and quick to respond. I wish I had been able to stay longer.... Thank you for sharing your lovely home, Joy.

Nice and has everything you need

  • 3 of 5

Everything was nice and clean. Lights were out in the bathroom and ice maker does not dispense ice but works. Other than that, nice, comfy place. Quiet area. No kids or loud neighbors. (maybe just my good luck) Perfect for the relaxing time I was looking for. Unit is large. I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Bonnie, I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry about the ice machine and bathroom light. I was unaware of these issues. Last I was there these were working. Sometimes the bathroom light requires you to push the ground fault protection button. Often this is the issue when multiple electrical appliances are in use in the bathroom. Thx again for your business. Joy
