Our Guests Love Windswept!!: We have many loyal guests who return to Windswept year after year. We strive to make our house one our guests will love, and ask them to make any suggestions for added conveniences. We have paid special attention to this in our kitchen, where we have 'extras' like a full spice rack, coffee bean grinder, cork screws, and lots of other conveniences.

Have to stay connected to the outside world on your Windswept vacation? As a convenience for our guests, we offer an ocean view study with a workspace and high speed Internet access. If you have to work..why not do it with an ocean view.!!

About Oceanwood and Windswept: Oceanwood is a small enclave of 13 beach houses near the end of N. Forest Beach Road.. We share a private oceanfront area, which includes oceanfront adult and children's pools, a beach cabana and private beach access boardwalk. This area is just steps (about 45) from Windswept - across a driveway and along a footpath between our oceanfront neighbor's houses, and you're there!

A bike path, or a walk or ride on the beach, takes you the mile from Oceanwood to Coligny Plaza, and you move from quiet and secluded to bustling! There are many gourmet as well as family restaurants within a mile or two of Windswept, as well as groceries, coffee shops, bike rentals, and many other amenities.

The WIndSwept address is 106 Oceanwood Trace, Hilton Head Island SC 29928

Excellent Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 1 year old son and I stayed at Windswept for two weeks in September 2007. It was an absolutely fantastic vacation and home away from home. Kay has made everything about the home livable for her guests. To get to the beach you simply walk through the pool area and down the adjoining boardwalk - there you are! I would liken the distance to walking from a standard beach front hotel, through its pool area to the beach. The beach directly in front of the complex is enormous at low tide and still nice and wide at high tide. The tidal pools make perfect "kiddie pools". Although we are pet lovers and took our dog with us, there was NO SIGN that pets are allowed to stay at Windswept. It is kept immaculately clean and tidy. It is great for kids too with very family friendly furnishings and highly mounted electronics. We were thankful for the little office that we were forced to use to work a bit. The high speed connection and wireless router made communication very accessible. There are even two adult bikes along with a TON of beach toys and rafts at the house. NO need to bring your own! It is a perfect bike ride to Coligny for a meal or ice cream. From the granite kitchen to the beautiful bathrooms, everything has been considered and appointed with the highest of taste and quality.

Best vacation spot HHI

  • 5 of 5

We love Hilton Head Island and have stayed from one end of the Island to the other. This is a great location. You will not be disappointed . Steps to the beach and pool. End off April first of May 2017 great weather. I was concerned we wouldn't use the pool because it's not heated. We didn't need the heat. Pool is right on the beach and had already warmed up enough to swim in. Even though you are second row you can see a little sliver of the beach from inside the house. Layout of the home worked great for us. Kay was great to deal with. VRBO and Kay made this last minute vacation one for the memory book. Thanks again Kay for letting us enjoy your home. The Dayton's

Wonderful WindSwept

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Canada after a fabulous week at Kay's beautiful home 2 weeks ago and are still pining!

106 Oceanwood Trace is a perfect location on what we think is the most beautiful part of the beach in HH.

It was an unusually cold week but having this home to hang out in so close to the beach made us seem to forget and we just got on with it. There is nothing that this home doesn't have to make your stay comfortable. Our little senior dog came with us and made himself right at home and memories were made as we were able to just pop onto the beach for the kids and him to run around. We rented bikes ahead of time and they were there when we arrived. We do hope that we will return to WindSwept one day perhaps with extended family as the house can accommodate a lot of people. It seemed like every door we opened was another bathroom!

It's just beautiful! Kay is so accommodating and was quick to respond to everything.

Thank you Kay for sharing this beautiful spot with us..

We may have just have found ourselves a realtor for when we can make our own HH dream come true :)

No refund during mandatory evacuation

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately, we never stayed at the property. We were unable to go because the entire period of our stay, Hilton Head was under a mandatory evacuation due to Hurricane Matthew. The owner refused to give us any sort of refund or to let us rebook at a later time. She did offer to let us come stay in the next 6 weeks (two of which were already booked), but it was not possible to organize 7 people's schedules in that amount of time. She was not willing to extend that offer any longer. We sympathize with everyone who suffered during the hurricane. But the owner refused to even share the loss with us in any way. And when we requested a refund, she became very nasty.

Owner's Response: Hurricane Matthew was a difficult time for many of us. Unfortunately this guest declined to purchase trip insurance. As my contract states, guests are not entitled to refunds for last minute cancellations for any reason. I do encourage guests to purchase trip insurance if this is a potential cause for concern.

Beautiful, well-kept home steps away from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year having a family reunion in Hilton Head over the holidays. This home was steps away from the beach. We loved all of the outside decks and the large open living area. The bedrooms were great and we especially loved the main floor bedroom for our parents. The home was adequately stocked with beach items, kitchen supplies, games, and linens. All in all, we enjoyed our time at this lovely beach house!

Holiday Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 10 = everything we needed was in the house and more. Location was excellent - short stroll down the path to the beach - wonderful. My favorite was the two porches - we were in the winter so can only imagine them in the Spring/Summer/Fall - We will be back.

We're a mile from the shops and restaurants at Coligny Plaza - walk or bike there on the beach or use the bike paths along N. Forest Beach.
