About Mary Ann Kowalonek

We have been vacationing in Hilton Head for 20+ years and finally realized our dream of owning our very own place at the beach!

Mary Ann Kowalonek purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mary Ann Kowalonek chose South Carolina

We fell in love with this villa because it is the closest unit to the beach and located next to the Sonesta Oceanfront Resort which provides conveniences such as a pool bar and a bar/restaurant and spa!

This property is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming down to HHI for the past 10 years. We've rented condos at Palmetto Dunes, Sea Pines and Shipyard and by far this is the best unit we've rented. The condo at Beachwalk is the closest walking distance to the beach; about 3-5 minutes. The condo is tastefully decorated and the bed is extremely comfortable. The owners are quite attentive. They called us on route to let us know the condo was ready and we wouldn't have to wait until 4pm to check in. I will definitely look for this condo next year when planning my vacation to HHI.

Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location and amenities. The Villa had all the conveniences of home including bikes for riding on the bike paths as well as the beach plus all of the beach gear you would need. Very clean and well maintained. Owners are easy to reach if there were any issues during our stay. My family would definitely rent again at this location in the future and would highly recommend to a friend. Thanks for providing such a great place to enjoy our Vacation.

1st class property & 1st class owners!

  • 5 of 5

First of all these owners are wonderfully, sweet people. They are easy to work with and are really fast with communication. They called me on my drive down and said to text them when I arrived and let them know if we needed anything. Never had an owner do that in all the years of renting. The property was great! Clean and tastefully decorated. Most rentals I am ready to go home after a week. This one felt like home! I hope to come back again! Pictures on the listing are nice, but the warmth and beauty of this place has to be sen in person. Thank you again for making our vacation the best we have had yet! Joe G.
