About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

This MAGNIFICENT 4600 square foot home has 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths with gas heated pool* & spa! All floors are accessible by the ELEVATOR, which makes bringing your luggage and groceries in and out extremely convenient. This spectacular home can also be PET FRIENDLY!

This gorgeous home is a magnificent reunion home with a sleeping capacity of 16, plus accomodations for 3 infants/toddlers. The entire house contains luxurious furnishings from Lexington, Hooker, Tommy Bahama, and more. Additionally, all living areas and bedrooms are covered with bamboo flooring.

This home is ideally laid out for family reunions or a gathering of friends by providing a warm and relaxed environment to enjoy your vacation through a variety of areas for the whole family, combined with many personal spaces for you to relax in private.

LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS: This incredible retreat accommodates up to 16 people, plus accomodations for 3 infants/toddlers. It offers two master suites with king beds on the first floor! Each master suite has a 37' flat screen tv. The second floor has accommodations of two bedrooms with king beds, one bedroom with two queen beds, and one bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. The upstairs bedrooms each have 26' flat screen tvs. The 5 full baths have travertine tile flooring. Each bedroom with a king bed has a brand new 3' MEMORY FOAM topper and a private bath. The bedrooms with two queens and two sets of bunk beds share a bath.

Five ENTERTAINMENT AREAS: (1) The first floor living area is encompassed by a grand, GREAT ROOM with beautiful hardwood bamboo floors, a two-story entry, and a living room decorated with two sofas and chairs with an elegant Dutch West Indies influence and a 48” flat screen TV over a beautiful gas fireplace.

(2) The CUSTOM KITCHEN is stocked with everything you would need to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal for a large family. It has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, gas stove, beverage center, a breakfast bar peninsula (seating 4), a table in the breakfast nook (seating 4), and a grand farmhouse table in the dining area (seating 10).

(3) Upstairs is a second large family area with fireplace, 52” flat screen TV over the fireplace with SURROUND SOUND, stereo, and DVD player, sectional sofa and chairs supporting the Dutch West Indies theme. Adjacent to this room is a dry bar with beverage center and microwave.

(4) Outside is a fantastic deck which overlooks the HEATED POOL* & SPA and extensively landscaped tropical back yard. The yard is fully fenced in, perfect for privacy, the little ones and the furry ones. Beautiful lawn furniture including table and chairs on the deck (seating 6) and lounge chairs around the pool will provide for the rest and enjoyment you seek. You will not only have a COMPLETE OUTDOOR KITCHEN with gas and charcoal grills for those important cook outs, but also an outdoor refrigerator and blender for those refreshing tropical drinks! A covered outdoor entertainment area with multiple seating areas, ceiling fans, bar stools, and an OUTDOOR TV & STEREO is the perfect place for the entire group to relax. Also available is an outdoor shower.

(5) The enclosed lower level provides a THREE-CAR GARAGE and GAME ROOM with darts and a foosball table. For those who enjoy surfing the web or need to catch up on work, our house offers FREE HIGH SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET access throughout.

CHILDREN AMENITIES: After traveling with young children, we understand how stressful it can be to travel without all of the “equipment” that you have at home. With that in mind, we have tried to provide everything that a family with young children might need. Included in the home are: One full-size crib, two portable Pack-n-Plays, three high chairs, baby bathtub, toddler bed rails, and wagon. All you need to pack are the linens for the Pack-n-Plays!

Should children or teens want activity beyond this wonderful vacation retreat, the town's newest and biggest park, CHAPLIN PARK, is just across the street. Here you will find soccer and baseball fields, basketball and lighted tennis courts, large shaded children's playground, walking/biking trails and even a fenced in doggy park.....all FREE of charge!

The BEACH is just a 6 minute walk, just one short block past the park. A bike ride would take two minutes and auto beach parking is available via metered parking.

Our home also has a KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM - Our vacation property uses the latest security technology. We do not provide keys to our guests. All access is controlled by access codes, which EXPIRE AFTER EACH RENTAL. You do not need to worry about keys being copied, driving to a rental office, losing keys at the beach, or meeting at the property to let others in. Our guests love this system, and we know that you will too!

Our home is NON-SMOKING, but has numerous outdoor areas for smoking. Our home is maintained with cleaning, pest control, landscaping, and pool services regularly.

Book your vacation getaway TODAY!

*2018 rentals include spa heat! The pool may also be heated upon request for an additional charge with advance notice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to thank you. Your house was spectacular and all my guests from 8 - 72 had a wonderful time. Somehow you made a huge house a warm and inviting home. With plenty of places for get togethers, but also enough privacy for all. We had a wonderful time!

Nice house, but it requires significant maintenance in order to be in the rental pool.

  • 1 of 5

Here are some of the problems we encountered:

1. HOT SPA WAS NOT WORKING. We contacted the owner our first day. We were given instructions by text, but were unable to get it to work. The pool guy came the next day and had to rewire the heater.

2. Grill igniter was not working. Owner acknowledged problem. She knew about issue but did not address before arrival. After the flippant response about hot spa and grill, we did not contact her again during the stay.

3. Grill was so dirty only one side was working.

4. Outside fridge is not working. Maureen's group reported this in July, but it's still not working.

5. Outside TV and stereo were not operational. One of our guests had to ground the unit to work.

6. Master bedroom upstairs shower was not draining. Guest was forced to share a bathroom.

7. Could not get fireplace to work. There were no instructions.

8. TV upstairs was on wrong setting with no instructions.

9. Alarm code was not changed for daylight savings. We were locked out by 9AM day of departure.

There were so many maintenance problems, it was just not acceptable. VERY UNSATISFIED.

Owner's Response: As we all know a happy rental experience is frequently dependent on good communication. VRBO/Homeaway provide excellent tools to facilitate a good collaboration between guests and owners during there stay - primarily the about our home app. Unfortunately, this guest decided to communicate the majority of their concerns AFTER the rental and is EXCEPTIONALLY HOSTILE. For the first time in 9 years, I was forced to give a guest a poor rating - our house was left FILTHY with black floors and food spilled everywhere. These are the type of guests that make owners wonder why we open our homes to them. MOST OF THEIR CONCERNS WERE EASILY RESOLVABLE. Guests who use the information provided or call us with any questions have consistently reported exceptional stays at our home - PLEASE SEE REVIEWS IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THIS GUEST. 1- Guests notified at 9pm day of arrival that spa was not heating - following troubleshooting, Pool maintenance was notified that night and issue was resolved before noon the next day 2 &3 - All gas grill parts were recently replaced, with exception of the igniter where the part is unavailable. A simple solution of using a lighter stick was provided and instructions added to the vrbo about our home app. Upon checking after stay, both sides of grill were functioning 4-&5 - the outside fridge, tv, and radio work perfectly fine. However after a rain the gfci reset button must be pressed. These instructions are also included in the about our home app 6 - first we have heard about this issue - will have maintenance address asap 7&8 - extensive details about how to use tv and fireplace also in app 9 - first time we've had this happen. Will contact alarm company to check.

My first visit to Hilton Head S.C. with 13 family members and friends which included 3 children.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The door code given to me before arriving didn't work. That was quickly fixed with a phone call to the owner. We cooked most of our meals at the house and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans and dinner ware. The starter on the outdoor gas grill did not work, that was remedied by using a match. The larger beds were very comfortable, the bunk beds not so much. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated with plenty of room to spread out. The open kitchen and dinning area provided a great space for having meals all together. The pool, hot tub and beach which was about a ten minute walk from the house provided fun water play and relaxation. The two times that I needed to contact the home owner, she responded very quickly. Everyone from the 70 year old to the 10 year old had an awesome time. We would diffently rent this house again.

One of the very best houses our golf group has ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

From the large spaces, furnishings, appliances, and three storey lift to the wine glasses, the property owners clearly know how to roll in comfort. Both the inside and outside kitchens offer natural inviting areas to spur plenty of conversations, lies, and laughter. We took full advantage of the Big Green Egg and will definitely rent this house again on our return trip to HHI. Thanks Kristy!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for my family of 15!! We had several babies so we needed all the space!! Kitchen was adequately supplied lots of plates and such. We really loved the outside grill. The pool was good we just need one a little bigger. The beds in the two master rooms were awesome. The upstairs were not quite as comfortable. We had a couple of issues one with the pool and the other with a sudden lack of hot water but a quick text to Kristy and it was quickly fixed! Other reviews said the house was dirty we did not find that to be the case at all. It's a bit of a walk to the beach especially with babies but all the extras the house had helped tremendously. Thanks again!'

Private and close to a great breach and park

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 5 adults and 7 kids from ages 7 to 16. Perfect house! The older kids enjoyed riding bikes and playing basketball across the street at the park. The younger kids loved the pool and the playground at the park. The house had everything that we needed! The walk to the beach was short and easy. The park across the street was great for riding bikes, running around, playing basketball and tennis. Fun for all ages!
