"As has become our custom my wife and I once again escaped the cold wet northern November climate for another agreeable month in Hilton Head. We had stayed in Shipyard at Evian Villas so had no qualms about signing on with Lynn and George and committing to a 4 week rental. We were were pleased to see that their lovely villa was as advertised, modern, comfortable and very homey indeed. Although we are but two people it was evident that the 2 bedroom unit is sufficiently spacious to easily accommodate a family with youngsters. For those who dine in, as we often do, the kitchen will certainly meet your needs as any pot, pan, dish, wine glass (most important) or specialized cooking utensil could be found in Lynn's recently updated kitchen. All in all, just like home....maybe better.
We especially like Evian as it is easily the most scenic complex within Shipyards and we'd often sit on our balcony/patio and watch the golfers who all seemed to be much more skillful than us...more practice I suppose. We do try to stay fit so really enjoyed the exceptional tennis court complex, biking trails and nearby gym that can be found only 1 mile (that's 2.2 km to Canadians) away at The Players Club where you are welcomed at a very reasonable monthly rate. For those golfers...what can I say! The choices are endless and most reasonable for us as November is considered the off season.
Dinners out were not a nightly event for us but we did enjoy the Jazz Corner (where we blew the bank on date night), Reilley's, Frankie Bones, Mellow Marshmallow for happy hour and for a great lunch burger try Harold's Diner.
All in all a great month and hopefully our gracious host and hostess Lynn and George will allow us an opportunity to return in the near future.
Ron and Penny"
