About Arnold Whittelsey

Susan and I were born Yankees but we are Southeners by choice!! We decided that if we had a home at the beach on beautiful Hilton Head Island we would see much more of our children and grandchildren. It has proven to be true!!

Arnold Whittelsey purchased this villa in 2006

Why Arnold Whittelsey chose Hilton Head

Susan and I chose to purchase our villa at SeaSide Villas because it is located on the most beautiful beach from Maine to Florida. We had been coming to Hilton Head Island as often as possible for over 25 years as we have always considered the Island to be a very special place. In 1998, we were fortunate enough to be able to move to the Island and we never tire of the beach, ambience and beauty of this magnificantly treed Island.

What makes this villa unique

The view from the balcony and the closness to the beach. There is no building closer to the uncrowded beach. The close proximity to Coligney Plaza with its many restaurants, shops and other aminities

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay. Thanks for having the condo clean upon our arrival. The quiet side of the building was nice as well as the closeness to the beach. Thank you.

Awesome villa and the best price!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be any closer to the ocean you'll have to sleep in the sand! Perfect get away villa for easy living! Close to night life and everything you need is within walking distance.

The pros - Location, location, location. A short walk to the beach and to local shopping. Can't beat that for sure. Also having the 6 beach chairs was great! No need to rent chairs was great. Well, that's about it on the pros.

Cons -

We arrived after a 13 hour drive and wanted to shower before heading out. Too bad when we turned on the hot water the whole condo filled up with the smell of rotten eggs. We had to let the water run for a long time for it to lose the smell. Needless to say bring bottled water.

In the description they mention towels and linens, well, sure if you want to share wash cloths. They left two body towels, one hand towel and one wash cloth on the master bed and in the closet for the sofa sleeper. Meaning two people needed to share one wash cloth. That was a bit much for our 19 year old and her best friend sharing the sofa sleeper. All beds were horribly uncomfortable. I actually slept on the floor one night instead of the queen bed because my back was hurting so badly. The sofa sleeper was worse. You could feel nothing but springs.

While the kitchen did have a coffee maker, toaster and blender it was far from fully equipped. The electric stove was awful. all the burners were uneven. To use them you had to find the "sweet spot" so the pans would not fall to one side or the other. A great time when trying to fry bacon. One spatula and zero other cooking utensils. Dish soap - on dishwasher pack, toilet paper - the one roll there when you arrive; paper towels - the one roll there when you arrive. It's a little deceptive.

We also had to buy a broom and dustpan while we were there (we left it hoping the next renters would be able to use it) because a week with no way to sweep up was GROSS. no vacuum or broom for a week? I couldn't stand it.

And I read in the other reviews the AC wasn't great. So I asked the owner prior to booking if it had been corrected. He said "the AC works fine." Well fine if you are in the living room at night. The AC is a hotel sized unit in the living room. the bathroom walls are between it and the master bedroom so ZERO airflow and it is HOT in the bedroom. Same goes for the bunks. they are built into the wall so there is no flow and our kids were hot as well.

To access the top bunk you have to hoist yourself up by standing on the bottom bunk. And you have to move a 2x4 designed to keep you from falling out each time you want to get in or out.

Owner's Response: This is a gross exaggeration! If the wanted the Ritz, they should have spent the money and gotten the Ritz not rent one of the most inexpensive condos on the beach.

The right size for us

  • 3 of 5

There was some confusion as to the check in time... We understood it to be 3pm but didn't get in the unit til 4:45. Pool was disappointing... not cleaned the entire week we were there. Our unit was ok. A little dated and small but It worked for us..two adults one teen. Property right on beach which was great! And close to shops in which we walked to and rode bikes to. We will likely visit the area again.

Very Disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

Arrived and condo was not clean. Woodwork was dirty, tub was not clean, I have a similar tub and use Mr. clean scrub pads which does a great job.Fortunately I brought Lysol wipes and wiped some things down that we used. Carpet was stained. we had issues with the lock and key entry, which I could not even turn, luckily my husband was able to open it after about 1 minute of trying. We called the owner and He did not reply to our call. The view was ok. The best part was the beach, it was beautiful. Will not return to this property. And yes it does need updated.

Owner's Response: I arrived at the condo to drop off a new vacuum and found the guests in the condo before check in time and they had already made a mess. The key box worked/works just fine! They made no mention of the condition of the tub and when I departed they seemed satisfied. The condo is one of the most inexpensive condos on the beach. If they wanted fancier accommodations, they could have spent more money!

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great week in Hilton Head! We loved being able to drink our coffee while enjoying the views off the balcony. Great location for walking to shops & restaurants. Condo was comfortable & clean & had everything you'd need. WiFi worked great, AC, beach chairs, & plenty of dishes, & pots & pans if you choose to eat in. Thank you for a wonderful week of memories for our family!
