"I wanted to share our view of Rick's condo. It is a beautifully re-modeled second floor condo with a vibrant beach décor. The weather was extremely hot and humid and the air conditioning worked wonderfully. I do admit that the walk to the beach carrying a cooler, 2 chairs, and beach umbrella was a longer distance away than I had thought, but it was great exercise for the two of us.
The resort was nice having 3 pools; 1 being inside which was a god send with it being so hot and humid the week we were there. The water temperature in that pool was about 10 degrees cooler than the 2 outdoor pools. The outdoor bar near Condo one had two drink specials each day and all the drinks were tasty and refreshing. Coco's which was at the end of the beach walkway was a fun and relatively busy place at times. The bartender was friendly, provided quick service, and a pleasure to chat with when he had a free minute.
We went to a few very good restaurants while there; Crazy Crab in Harbor Town, Skull Creek Boathouse, and Hudson's Dockside. All great restaurants with great food and good service. Skull Creek had a great early bird dinner menu between 4:00 and 5:45 p.m. Also, there were happy hour drink specials from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. daily. I highly recommend it and also suggest you arrive before 6:00 p.m. as the wait time during the summer is pretty long.
We also participated in activities at "Outside Hilton Head" located in the Shelter Cove marina. We kayaked, paddle boarded and my husband went for a kayak fishing trip. We saw two dolphins while kayaking which we followed or they followed us for at least 30 minutes. Our tour guide was a senior in Conservation Science at Clemson University and was very knowledgeable of the area and wild life and had a great personality.
The condo was centrally located next to Kroger's Grocery store, another small plaza with several restaurants and shops, Walmart (within 5 miles), and a few other chain stores you've heard of. Again, all of the stores, plazas, gas stations, pharmacies, etc. were within 2-5 miles of the condo.
I could write a great deal more, but I'm sure you've heard enough. Just wanted to re-emphasize that the condo was beautiful. If you choose this condo, you won't be disappointed."
