Overview

About the property

Master BR w/ Queen, 1 Queen Sleeper Sofa, 2 kids bunks, Sleeps 4, 1 Full Bthrm

Relax at the beach in our elegant, upscale Tuscany style villa/condo. We're in the very quiet end unit of the desired 'B' building on the first floor, just about 100 yards from the beach and the largest ocean side pool on Hilton Head Island.

Our villa/condo is not your typical beach rental with cheap furniture and tacky decorations. You will be amazed at the 'homey' feeling with it's rich decor and comfort - like you are actually staying at a relative's house at the beach.

Take a 2 minute stroll to the uncrowded white sandy beach at Hilton Head's Folly Field where we have seen dolphins cruising the beach almost every time we've stayed here.

The resort is extremely family friendly with something for everyone: The largest oceanside pool on Hilton Head Island, a kiddie pool, playground, fitness center and more. Ten lighted tennis courts are open for unlimited play day or night.

Free Wireless Broadband (WiFi): FREE internet connection - Bring your laptop!

Need to sneak in a little work in with your vacation? No problem - we provide the Internet connection you need to catch up on emails or whatever - throughout the entire resort grounds.

The resort charges for internet usage, but we have it covered for you.

About Steven and Karen

We had the idea that if we bought a condo in Hilton Head, we would have a place to stay while we visit family in nearby Bluffton. We thought that maybe we would try renting it as a vacation home while we were not in the area and it proved to be a successful idea.

As we saw that this was working out, we decided to add to our location choices and bought a few more over the years. We now own 2 condos at Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Resort and manage 1 other there for a friend. At the south end of the island, we own 1 condo and manage another for a friend there. Those 2 are located at Sea Side Villas, South Forest Beach/Coligny area near Sea Pines.

To experience something totally different, try our mountain condo at High Chalet, Gatlinburg which over looks the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort.

Steven and Karen purchased this condo in 2007

Why Steven and Karen chose Hilton Head

Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Resort is a self contained condo property. On the grounds you will have the convenience of having 3 restaurants - a sports bar/restaurant, gourmet pizza and a pool/ocean side tiki bar which also serves food. Also on site there is bike rental, a fitness room, 10 lighted tennis courts (free), playground and the largest ocean side pool on Hilton Head Island.

What makes this condo unique

It's just the 2 of us - Steve and Karen, not some gigantic rental management company. We are just like you - love to travel and expect the best.

We value your business and will make every effort to make you feel like you are staying at a family member's place instead of a hotel.

Cozy, Romantic, Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

Spent the week in the Villa with my Girlfriend. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with how cozy the Villa appeared to be. The Villa was a modest size so it wouldn't be good for a family stay but for a couple, the size was perfect. The best part of the Villa was the bed. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on it a long time. The Room was not to far from the beach (within a short walking distance) and we were able to carry our beach items with us without having to drive anywhere. You could also rent a chair and umbrella from the resort on the beach. The pool was also very refreshing and clean while the beach bar served very good drinks. The Pizza shop on the resort was closed during our stay which was unfortunate. The Resort is in the middle of the Island so it is not to far from any one location on the island whether on the north or south end of the Island. Overall, it was a very relaxing week and we had a great time.

Really nice property with close walk to beach.

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the villa. It was very clean and had everything we needed. I was a little disappointed because I thought it was oceanfront, but you can't really see the ocean. It's in the back of the condo. Its a short walk to the ocean, but still close enough. My only complaint about the villa was the door locks. We had difficulty every time trying to lock and unlock the doors. The locks need replaced. We loved Hilton Head though and the owners were very nice and easy to deal with. I would stay here again. I feel so revived and relaxed after going there. Hilton Head is very nice!

Great Stay, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay at Steve & Karen's condo. We found the condo very comfortable and in a convenient spot on the resort. We enjoyed the pool, the great beach access, and bike rental on site. We also found it was at a very convenient location on the island for heading to the mainland for a couple day trips, to cross the island on Marshland Road, or to head down Buisness 278 to Sea Pines and all the amenities along the way. We found Mitchellville Beach Park to be a hidden gem - nice beach, less people, and calmer when the winds and waves were a little too much for our paddleboard at the resort. All in all a wonderful week at a great condo!

Good for two people

  • 3 of 5

Nice enough small condo unit. Layout was as shown in the photos, though they are dated as someone has painted the walls. Not a great paint job.

Pro's:

- Location is very good as written, pool and beach access is very nice.

- Easy to get to once on HHI

- Parking and access to the condo door could not be easier

- Nice Security

- Nice lower unit with a small porch that is good, but not for more than 2 people

- Condo has reasonably fast internet access

- Hint - take an HDMI cable and use your computer to access TV/Video or you will be channel flipping forever looking for something to watch as there is no "Guide"

Con's:

- Basically the unit could benefit from/needs a full detail and upgrade to the paint, plumbing, and dusting. A few examples:

1. Take a look at the kitchen sink. It is actually a bar sink. So, unless you plan on eating out and not cleaning pots/pans it is hard to cook/clean in it. The faucet is not tall enough to get pots under

2. The toilet constantly drained. It refilled about every 10 minutes. Ironically, I had just finished up doing some plumbing work on my house before leaving on vacation. I am very handy. I popped the lid, saw a newer flapper. Smooth sealing surface, no obstructions. In the end, just turned the valve off at night so I could sleep. I did not want to deal with a plumbing issue or calling the owner on my vacation.

3. The fan is very dusty on top. Not wanting to detail a fan on my vacation - my solution was not to look at it...

4. The fan in the central area makes a frog sound on low. Cannot imagine trying to sleep there.

5. Commode is probably original to the unit and one of the smallest I have ever seen.

While you might be able to fit more than 2 people in this unit, cannot imagine more than 2 nights unless you are very comfortable with others in your party, including young children.

Overall, a few bucks and good, experienced paint job on the unit would make it very nice.

Owner's Response: This being our first review with less than 4 stars, I take it very seriously and wasted no time to do everything possible to correct the issues mentioned here. I would prefer however that guests call me so that problems can be addressed immediately while a guest is at the condo rather than finding out about it later in a bad review. Also, since I don't get to visit our condo as often as I would like, I sometimes don't know about an issue unless someone tells me about it. The day after this guest left this review, my wife had someone cover her shift at work so that she could drive from the upstate to Hilton Head so that she could fix what she could right away. We hired a contractor to do what she could not do herself. -The "not good paint job" was repainted. Trim and molding were repainted. I will post updated pictures as soon as I am able to come down and take some new ones. -The ceiling fan in the bedroom was thoroughly dusted and cleaned and the housekeeper was told about this. -The ceiling fan in the living room was replaced and there are no more "frog noises" to lose sleep over. -The toilet was replaced with a new model which is an ADA approved, chair height, elongated bowl. The plumbing issue was a loose floor bolt. It has been corrected with the new bowl installation. If you are a future renter or potential renter of any of our properties, I would like you to know that I do take complaints very seriously as I mentioned above. And I do want you to call me right away if something is not right. (unless it is about a "not so good paint job"). I will probably wait to fix that after you leave. Prior to renting any vacation property or hotel room, pay attention to the size of the unit in the ad. As my ad states, our condo is best suited for a romantic couples' getaway (2 guests). If you want to bring children, there are bunk beds for them or a sleeper sofa. Our condo is 550 square feet. This is a vacation rental, not a large home meant for long term living. If your house is bigger than this and you are uncomfortable in anything smaller, you need to look for a house to rent instead of a beach condo. Most guests find our place comfortable (it is not as tiny as this review suggests).
