"We had a great time on Hilton Head Island. The house was beautifully decorated and in a great location. The floor plan with 2 master bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with twin beds - and a bathroom for each bedroom - easily accommodated 8 people. The kitchen was well supplied with pans and utensils and we cooked at home several nights. The gas grill is not great but it was nice to have. The kitchen could use oven mitts and some extra towels. There is a general store very close by and is a good place to pick up extra kitchen garbage bags, salt and pepper, and other small items that you will need.
Despite being in a popular area the house felt private and safe. The path to the beach is only a few steps away. There were always people on the beach but it was not crowded. We saw lots of dolphin, built a great sandcastle, and enjoyed daily walks. The house is only a hundred yards from the South Beach Marina area with a bike rental shop, terrific tennis facilities (we really enjoyed the daily drills), an ice cream shop and The Salty Dog Cafe. The restaurant is very crowded in the afternoon into the evening but since we were so close by we made a reservation and went back to having fun. When it got close to our reservation time we walked back over and got right in.
There is a small pool shared by the houses on the street. It is not heated and we only used it once since the weather in April was not that warm. We loved the bike paths in the area and enjoyed an easy ride over to Harbour Towne for lunch. We thought the South Beach area had much better shops and was nicer than Harbour Towne. We would definitely recommend this rental to friends."
