Condo, 1 Bedroom + queen pull-out sofa + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
For most of my life I have lived in the Boston area. After teaching school for 12 years,I had 3 children and then I went into the real estate business - eventually owning my own company. Today, I just manage property. One of my daughters, her husband and 3 children live south of Boston, and I am one half hour south of them in Plymouth. The other 2 live in Hilton Head with 4 of my wonderful grandchildren. This picture is of some of my favorite little people hangs on the wall by the dining table n 207 Admirals Row.
Martha purchased this Condo in 1993
Why Martha chose Folly Field
When I visited Hilton Head for the first time in 1989, I fell in love with the Island - the architecture, the beach, the ambience that is Hilton Head. Several visits later I thought it would be special to own an oceanfront condo. When I saw the view from 207 Admirals Row, I knew I had found my place - although it was in horrible condition! We did a MAJOR overhaul that first year, and every year since we have upgraded the unit and now it is definitely one of the best condos on the oceanfront side of Admirals Row. The colors are bright and cheery and it is a very comfortable and happy place to vacation.
What makes this Condo unique
Walking the beach, playing cards and games,mand playing golf are my favorite activities, and there is no better place to do this than in Hilton Head. My other 8 reasons for loving Hilton Head are that 2 of my children, their spouses and 4 more grandchildren all live here year-round.

Beautiful location but with the little things
The location was perfect! Directly on the beach. And we loved it. The condo was very clean and the description by the owner was accurate.
However, there was a few issues. First the back sliding glass door would not open without being lifted off the track. Then it could not be closed without being lifted off the track. We gave up when we got it open approximately 6 inches.
The vertical blinds on the sliding door would not open or close. They were tied into a knot.
The fan in the bedroom was unbalanced and made a knocking sound the entire time it was on.
The toilet runs. Nonstop. Even after jogging the handel repeatedly.
The bedroom is in the front of the condo and thus you can hear all the other guest running up and down the hall. It is rather noisy at 10 o’clock at night.
Again the beach was fabulous. I always love Hilton Head.
I’m sorry you ran into some issues. When you told me the sliding door wasn’t working, I Immediately called our Maintenance department and someone should have come and fixed it that day. Did that happen?
Sometimes guests leave the slider open and the A/C on. This is not a good combination as it makes the A/C work doubly hard and shortens its’ life. If the verticals ar pulled over, they will bounce around in the breeze so I assume someone tied them back. They could have just opened them all the way. No need to tie them back.
As for the bedroom fan, I can have that rebalanced today.. I wish I had known it was a problem because it could have been fixed sooner.
Again, I’m sorry you had some problems and I wish you had told me sooner as they all could have been fixed.
I’m happy you liked the condo and the view and that your vacation was memorable.,
Wanted to love it!
This is our second year staying in this property. We so badly wanted to love it. Martha is great...good communication, easy to work with.
I think for two people this is a good condo. It is just too small for a family. If you need to use the pull out bed there is just no where to go in the main living area. It takes up the whole family room.
It was quite dirty last year but we over looked it thinking everyone is entitled to a bad day. (Cleaning lady) So I cleaned it really well, wiped down walls, cabinets, etc. This year it was really dirty again. The cabinets and walls need a good cleaning/paint job. Everything is just sticky.
There are also no fitted sheets for the bunk beds. There was only a top sheet on the bed. Martha was great when we contacted her about this and offered to bring waterproof mattress protectors. She said they don’t make sheets for the mattress size they are. Even a twin flat sheet folded under would work well. Just something covering the mattress would have been nice. I am not having my children sleep on a mattress that has no bottom sheet....especially in a rental.
We also could never find the DVD remote so we couldn’t watch a movie. There were three remotes...just none that worked the DVD player. Not the end of the world but eventually when all of these things add up you start to lose the value.
The pool was way under chlorinated and overall the complex felt rundown. We don’t mind old...but it was needing some maintenance.
We booked another year because it is nice to be right on the beach. We overlooked the other issues that were subpar as a trade off for the view/proximity of the beach. But in the end, it just isn’t worth the price we paid.
We love the location of the resort. Great area, close to everything you need and a quieter location than the other side of the island.
And again, Martha was very receptive and great to work with.
Just maybe a better condo for a couple.
Hello, Brooke.......I’m sorry you had issues with my condo and the entire resort. HHB&T is almost 40 years old and it is in better condition now than when it was new! It takes a lot of time and money to maintain an oceanfront community. The moisture from the ocean covers everything causing cabinets, etc. to be sticky, metal to rust, and wood to deteriorate. This problem affects the direct oceanfront condos, especially.
When you asked me to get waterproof covers for the bunk beds, I immediately called my cleaning lady and asked her to do that. She bought them and brought them over to the condo, but you told me you would continue to have your children sleep on the pull-out sofa and not in the bunk beds. The bunk beds are long and narrow and no company makes fitted sheets or waterproof covers for these mattresses. I wish they did!
I realize you like the location of my condo (I think it is a little piece of heaven!), but maybe another year you will need to rent a larger condo in a more upscale community, one that is not on the ocean and doesn’t take a beating from the wind and the water. If you want to vacation on the ocean, you have to put up with the toll the ocean takes on oceanfront property. I think it’s well worth it!
We had a nice visit. The only complaint is the hallways are a bit noisy in the early am and the parking lot was full of ants.
Hilton Head Folley Field Admirals Row
Property was EXACTLY as described. Great ocean and marsh views from balcony. The beach access can’t be beat! If you’re wanting to spend most of your time at the beach...this place is for you! Quick response time/communication with property manager as well. We had a great time!!!!
Room was clean and had everything we needed. The best view of the ocean we’ve ever had! I loved how the mirrors in the kitchen/living room allowed you to see the beach from anywhere in the room. Quick access to the beach. Loved our stay!
Thanks, Casey! Yes. I think the mirrors double the view that is awesome to begin with.
I’m glad you enjoyed my condo. Come again!
Nice small cozy beachfront property. Owner was attentive if we needed anything. Great place to stay and right on the beach. Great views both directions of beach. Even enjoyed the stormy day watching the ocean.
Thank you, Michael, for the review of my property. It, definitely, is exciting to watch the ocean in a thunderstorm! The normal small waves are large, rushing, breaking and wild.
Of course, the few steps to the beach on any other day is a blessing,
I hope you can come back next year.
