-Bike path in front of complex

One of the island’s main bike paths adjoins the street side of our complex. Within two blocks of Sea Side Villas is Coligny Plaza, a mecca of restaurants, shops, boutiques, ice cream shops, pizza parlors, a theater, bakery and a major grocery store. A short walk down the beach is the famous “Tike Hut”, one of only two oceanfront bars on the island. The Tike Hut is a “must do” for Island visitors interested in enjoying a cold libation and live music. If you have a more competitive spirit, beach volleyball is played all day long just outside the Hut.

In addition to an uninterrupted 12-mile beach, HHI has 112 miles of paved paths providing a safe opportunity to walk, bike, run or rollerblade. Explore one of the Island's 5 nature preserves and you could spot a bald eagle, great egrets, great blue herons or osprey fishing for dinner.

In early 2011, Hilton Head Island was designated one of the few 'Bicycle Friendly Communities' in the U.S. Additionally, in mid-2011, Hilton Head Island received 'Audubon International's Green Community' designation, indicating the Island has worked with Audubon to develop plans for energy and water conservation, green space and building design, waste reduction, clean-air emission standards and renewable energy.

Recently, HHI came in 2nd place in the '10 Best Beaches Readers Choice Travel Awards' for 2012, beating out destinations like Maui, HI, Sanibel Island, FL, and Coronado Beach, CA. HHI's 12 miles of 'wide, flat beaches' was noted, as well as the fact that 'Hilton Head Island is a great combination of fun and relaxation.'

The Island has an abundance of beautifully manicured golf courses in which to hone your skills. With over 30 Island courses, including nearby Harbor Town, which hosts the PGA “Heritage” every April, you’ll never have to play the same course twice! Tremendous tennis opportunities are available as well, including professional instruction at nearby Van Der Meer Tennis Center, and on many of the HHI plantations.

Hilton Head Island is a special place full of natural beauty, many activities and Island adventures. Once you visit, it’ll leave a lasting impression that will beckon your return. We look forward to having you visit Hilton Head Island and the Low Country in the near future!

Great Efficiency - very close to the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were great to work with...very easy process. They happened to be down the same week and reached out to see if there was anything the could take care of, much appreciated!

The unit is clean and many aspects have been remodeled. Only suggestion is to update and open up the bunk area for kids (iPod plug ins, special lighting) to make it a cool experience.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, thanks! If you're looking for a place close to the beach and close to Coligny Circle (where the action is) look no further!

Very nice little unit in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful location, nicely decorated, nicely appointed, we would recommend it to friends.

As with most oceanfront properties it's impossible to keep rust at bay, so even new fixtures show small amounts of rust. The plates were usable, but a bit dingy. There were plates, pots, glasses, and a dishwasher. The unit was clean and well maintained.

There was a good view of the ocean, although it's ocean view rather than ocean facing. I'll try to upload a couple pictures of the view from the room.

The owners were great and helped when there was there was a problem with VRBO.

We look forward to staying in this unit again.

Great Location!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We always stay in the South Forest Beach area, but this was our first time in this condo. Condo is small but worked great for our needs. It was very clean and well maintained. Condo was convenient to the beach and Coligny. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful. This rental is great for a family that wants to enjoy Hilton Head, but not break the bank.

Even though our condo was very small, it was appropriate for our needs.

  • 3 of 5

We were never able to connect to WIFI. It continually said it was out of range. Also, upon inspection, several of the dishes needed replaced. Cups and plates were broken or cracked. Many utensils and dishes were dirty and needed washed before they could be used. We were unable to use the grille. It was very filthy and in disrepair. Our location and view were perfect.

Owner's Response: We apologize for any issues you had with the internet and wish you had contacted us about this during your stay. The condo has it's own private wireless system thru our Time Warner cable system. We checked with the current guests, and they have not had any issues. It may have been an issue with the browser on the device trying to connect. The condos at Seaside Villas are compact, but their location on the beach and being an easy walk to Coligny Circle with all of its dining and shopping options make them a very desirable location. They work well for couples or small families. We will contact the HOA about the grill area since they manage this common area for the complex. Thank you for your feedback and for renting our beach place.
