About the property

2 BR 2 BA Super view and Super comfort Oceanfront Condo

The Spa at Port Royal is a hidden jewel on the island. It is like having your own private beach and it is so peaceful and beautiful. The view from our patio of the ocean and beautifully landscaped courtyard with lagoon and fountains is unbeatable, especially for the price.

I vacationed many times in this complex before I purchased a condo We love it and spend all of our vacations here too. We think you will too.

Ours is a 2 Br / 2 full bath ocean front condo on beautiful Hilton Head Island. This condo has awesome water views! Located on the second floor (stairs only / no elevator) for the best view, the outdoor patio is equipped with high top chairs and table, best for enjoying the views of beautiful sunrises and soothing sunsets. The patio also has a ceiling fan to keep cool.

Patio also overlooks tranquil lagoons and gardens with fountains...where you can watch turtles sunbath, large coastal birds perch, fish feed. Bring a bag of fish food with you or save your old brad to feed the fish; kids LOVE it. The complex feels and looks like a little tropical paradise!

The complex is on the ocean on the Port Royal sound with a natural tidal beach. The beach was "renourished" by the Town of Hilton Head in the summer of 2016...All of the beaches on the island were upgraded which means they trucked in fresh sand, dealt with natural erosion and basically made them all more beautiful. Our beach in particular really benefitted from the program and it is so much prettier now. We are very excited about it.

A tidal beach means the water comes way in and goes way out with the tides. It is a beautiful beach for sitting, sunbathing, relaxing, strolling, beachcombing and bike riding, BUT it not your traditional, wave rolling beach, and we want you to be aware of that before you arrive. The beach is SO private with no crowds. We love it, but know it is not everyone's preference. The more traditional type beaches, though, are only a 10 minute drive from the condo with public parking.

Sleeps 6:

Master has a super comfy king bed with views of the ocean

Second bedroom has 2 twins

Living room couch pulls out with a comfortable full size bed

Private gated complex

Tennis courts

2 outdoor pools - one oceanfront

Indoor pool - as of February 2018 the indoor pool and hot tub are closed for renovations. We will update this note as soon as repairs are completed.

Hilton Head is a beautiful place. The island's growth was thoughtfully designed to limit commercial impact on the natural beauty. It is a wonderful place to vacation with your family & friends. There is so much to see & do for all ages, and the selection of dining options is unparalleled in low country beach destinations.

Beautiful location, very comfortable, gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved sitting on the balcony, listening to the fountains, and seeing across the sound. Loved having TVs in all the bedrooms, and the living room was very comfortable. We hope to come back in the summer. Great vacation.

Relaxing location, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my parents and I enjoyed our stay in the Conways' condo. The view from the balcony was very nice looking over the lagoon and out toward the Port Royal Sound. We enjoyed watching the fish and turtles swim in the lagoon from the balcony. The condo complex was very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed the pool that was just steps away from the condo. The tidal beach was as described in the VRBO overview. It was very different that the typical beach, but it was very pretty and we loved walking out and watching the tiny crabs scatter into the grass. Though if not you aren't careful of where you were walking during low tide, the sand will suck you in up to your knees. We found lots of pretty seashells, but had to put them back because they all had live crabs in them, which was still pretty neat! We had some issues with the TV cable connection during our stay, but Lisa was great to work with and we were able to make adjustments to get it to work for us. This was our first visit to Hilton Head Island, and while we enjoyed our condo, I doubt that we will be back to HHI anytime soon. HHI was pretty place, but it was sort of hard to navigate with the way the foliage is grown up around the signs and there seemed to always be a lot traffic. We had a hard time finding a public beach that had available parking. Overall, though, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo to future renters.

Good, with some restrictions

  • 4 of 5

We came here with our canoe on top of our car, to paddle the area. I told the host we were bringing a canoe. We specifically chose this place because of the proximity to the water and ease of putting our canoe in. However, we arrived after 17 hours of driving to be told at the gate that we cannot even enter the complex with a canoe - they are not allowed. Lisa responded immediately and sent us to a nearby rental storage facility to store the canoe. She said to put it on our credit card and she would reimburse us. While I appreciated her ensuring we had a place for our boat, it meant we could not do the things we came here to do, so that was a big disappointment. If we had been told the canoe was not allowed, we'd have stayed elsewhere. That said, the unit is lovely and has everything you could need. The bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the living room furniture was extremely comfy as well. It's beautifully decorated. I enjoyed having breakfast every morning on the balcony, watching the turtles and birds in the lagoon. The apartment was clean and I did not see a single bug the entire time we were there -- remarkable in the South. It's on the second floor and there was a little noise from the tenants upstairs but not much, and not enough to disturb us. Good water pressure in the shower. There is a Keurig machine as well as a coffee maker in the kitchen. The complex is beautifully landscaped, the pool was wonderful, and the beach area is very unique. If you want a pristine sand beach with ocean waves, stay elsewhere, but if you like nature and exploring, you will love it here on the Sound. When the tide goes out you can walk out forever, and the area changes so much with the tides, but every view is just beautiful. I had a dinner-plate sized moon jellyfish swim right by me as I waded out, and saw lots of beautiful birds, driftwood, and shellfish. We saw dolphins as well. It is a quiet and peaceful area. Do bring bug spray for the mosquitoes. The complex is large and has several buildings; some overlook the tennis courts or pool and are far from the water, but this unit is in the building closest to the beach, overlooking the gorgeous lagoon and with great views of the Sound as well. Less than a minute to the sand from your front door. Bottom line, if you don't have a canoe or kayak with you, this place will be perfect for you.

Good value

  • 5 of 5

It was such a peaceful visit. The view was good. It is definitely true that the waterfront is different. At first, I missed the sound of the waves but all the wildlife made up for it. And the lagoon outside our balcony was so nice. We watched a crane in a tree for awhile. And we fed the fish, turtles and baby alligator a few times.

The condo is comfy but not very updated but everything worked for the most part. We had issues with the tvs and called the owner. She helped us get the bedroom tvs going but we never did get the tv in the living room working. There was a broken arm on a chair on the balcony that we had to watch out for. These were all minor items to us.

We would rent this place again for the location and price.
