We had a great time at Steve's place. It was extremely clean and well-decorated. My kids loved feeding the turtles and fish every morning, and one morning an alligator even swam up! The kitchen is updated and nice, the wifi was fast enough to stream netflix, and all appliances worked great.
The location was perfect- my parents were staying across the street at the Marriott and it was an easy 10 minute walk. We always went through their hotel to get to the beach, so I can't speak to how long it would take to get to the public beach, but if it's the same as the Marriott, it's about a 10 minute walk.
The only negative I would say is that the master bed is very, very firm. I prefer a much softer bed but my Mother laid on the bed and thought it felt great, so it could just be me. Just be aware if you are used to a soft bed, this bed will feel very hard. I found the kids beds in the 2nd bedroom to be much softer, and my son slept great on the pullout couch bed.
Last suggestion I would make to the owners is to get some more comfy blankets around- the cold air doesn't reach the bedrooms upstairs as easily as it is downstairs so we would turn it down pretty low and anyone downstairs would be a bit chilly. We found a spare blanket but it would be nice to have two or three - even just so we could use them for laying around watching TV on a lazy day.
Those are small things compared to the love we had for this place and couldn't believe the amazing price. We'll definitely check it out again if we come back to Hilton Head!
