Why Joe and Tonya Viola chose Hilton Head Island

We bought down in Hilton Head because we fell in love with the island when our son choose University of South Carolina, Beaufort to attend college and stayed on the island to teach Elementary School.

What makes this house unique

The Best thing about our home is the walk to the beach, the distance to the bike path, the quiet friendly residential community and the large private back yard.

beautiful relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and it was just as wonderful as the first! It’s a very easy walk to the beach but there’s also parking right at the beach if you prefer. So many nice touches make this a great home to relax in for vacation! The great backyard hangout space was even better this summer. Also, Tonya is so helpful if you have a question. My family truly feels at home here!

Great house for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Carolina on My Mind for a family vacation and had a wonderful time! The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, utensils so we could cook dinner and eat “at home.” The beach was an easy walk away, and my 4-year old daughter loved the Adventure Cove arcade and putt putt, which was an even shorter walk. We had one maintenance issue with a toilet, and the owners arranged to have it fixed very quickly. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it!

This house was a perfect fit for our family! From the beautiful beach decor to the fabulous backyard, it was a lovely place to visit! Just a short walk or bike ride to the beach, this home was fun for the whole family! We will be back next summer!

We loved our stay. The home was well furnished and perfectly situated near beach.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well furnished.

The kitchen could have used a few more bowls- like salad bowls. Silverware for a home accommodating 10-12 may need added to as well- but other than that we found everything well stocked.

My kids and I really liked the bikes! The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood but only minutes to beach. The beds were very comfortable as well.

Only negatives were the rather noisey washing machine, no soap in any bathrooms and most bikes needed some work. But was well worth the money and we will definitely recommend and visit again.

beautiful comfortable home down the street from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week here! The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated. Tonya made all the directions very clear so it was easy to settle in. There's a walking/bike path that will take you right to the beach if you want to walk and there's also parking at the beach if you prefer to drive. The fenced-in backyard is large with plenty of seating and room for kids to play. There were many little touches that made this a great place to stay. I definitely recommend it!!

Great home for a family beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at Carolina On My Mind for our beach trip. It was an easy walk to the beach, and it was so nice to have bikes, beach chairs, toys and a cart so we didn't have to buy/transport all of those items to HHI ourselves. The house was very spacious and comfortable, and we would definitely recommend staying here!
