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. It has been our pleasure to watch this place take shape from an idea into a reality. From local consignments shops, to Craigslist ads, to local and national retailers and with the help of local contractors we have piece-by-piece assembled a place of rest, relaxation and fun that is located literally within walking and biking distance of all the best Hilton Head Island has to offer.

The condo is located on the second floor 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 totally renovated master bath with walk-in shower. The second bedroom includes a queen bed, two closets, 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 totally 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, multiple new smoke detectors and many new plumbing fixtures. 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. Two 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.

Great girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

My new college grad and a friend were treated to a stay in HHI and were thrilled with their accommodations. Everything was beautifully decorated, spacious, and clean. They loved the location and the access to the beach and bikes. The kitchen had everything they needed to do some cooking and to reheat their leftovers from the Sea Shack. They enjoyed being close to Coligny Plaza but also enjoyed the uncrowded beach area near the condo. Joy was super easy to reach and provided tons of information to make their stay the best. They are already planning a return trip!

Lovely condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well maintained, clean (clean clean not surface clean) property with a super location for ease of dining out, beach and entertainment. Well stocked kitchen and love the choice of channels and on demand was a bonus! Just super comfy.

Only negative for me was thin walls and that is simply because I work from home and was inside a lot. Guests downstairs had a large barking dog and a small yapping dog - annoying!

That said, can't chose your neighbors but you can chose your owner and Joy is definitely one of the two best in my 8 years of coming to Hilton Head.

Thanks Joy for being such a great host.

Owner's Response: Peg, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I apologize for the dogs. We stayed at the condo just after you and the dogs were annoying. Fortunately, those were renters and they are gone now. I have never had problems with noise prior to that. I hope that you will stay at Paradise Found again. Sincerely, Joy

Lovely Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Paradise Found. Everything was in excellent condition: the condo was comfortable, clean, and pleasant and everything worked exactly as it should. The location was pefect as well: such an easy walk to the beach as well as to the restaurants and stores around Coligny Plaza. I hope we'll be able to return some day.

Paradise Found, indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Found is a beautiful retreat condo in Hilton Head. The condo is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated with a breezy, beach-y feel. It is close to shopping and the beach. Bikes, beach chairs, and so many other little details were provided; from the necessities to the games, books and movies stashed away for our entertainment. We felt right at home with the peaceful, spiritual nature of the place. Joy was wonderful to work with and communicate with. The email she sent before we left was virtually a visitor's guide and quickly became indispensable!

Thank you Joy, for a great getaway! I'd recommend this unit to anyone wanting a little bit of Paradise found!
