About Kate Shanks
We are a family of 4, 5 counting our dog Daisy :), and have lived in the midwest our whole lives. We LOVE to travel and have been all over the U.S. and abroad. With all of our travels, Hilton Head still remains our favorite family destination.
Kate Shanks purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Kate Shanks chose North Forest Beach
One of our parents has owned a Breakers unit since 1995 and we have vacationed here nearly every year since. We love the location and walkability to multiple restaurants and shops. It's our favorite place on the island!
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the direct view and sound of the ocean. There is nothing better and more peaceful than the ocean waves hitting the beach and we can experience all of that right from our condo. We love that the beach is within walking distance and we don't have to drive to get to it. Shops and restaurants are only a minute or two walking distance. Bike rentals and bike paths are within walking distance as well. Our morning rituals are a run on the beach or bike paths and a coffee from Coligny Plaza. Our favorite nighttime rituals are ice cream after supper and browsing the shops in Coligny Plaza. During the day we enjoy the pool, beach, ocean and the entertainment at the Holiday Inn Tiki Hut nearby. We also rent bikes for the week and ride all over the island.

Our stay was cut short by the hurricane but Kate was great to work with. Property was just as promised, clean, and had a great view

We have stayed in this unit 4 times. It does not disappoint at all!!! Wonderful view of the ocean. We love staying at The Breakers. The location is perfect as you can walk to everywhere you need to go. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Breakers Condos NO ELEVATORS
The Condo itself was adequate and clean. The shower curtain is too short for the bathtub/shower due to the high ceiling. The sliding patio door was worn and dirty with the normal lock and latching mechanism broke. An alternate lock on the bottom slide worked fine.
The cable tv remotes are a strain to use. The bedroom remote would not do channel down. There is not guide on the tv for what is playing. I've never seen a modern cable tv with no guide available. This is Spectrum cable too! I was surprised. A printed channel guide is provided in the condo, but in such small print anyone over 50 will have difficult reading.
The biggest issue is the fact that there is no elevator for the upper floors. The 3rd floor is like being on the 4th floor due the building being on stilts. Upon arriving is was a strain to unload a week of supplies up 4 flights of stairs! When leaving it was raining, and the stairs are not sheltered from the rain. I was exhausted and felt like a wet dog when leaving for home. I would not stay at these condos again because of the lack of an elevator.
Also, there is a lack of maintenance and neglect for the facility. Each condo door has a porch light, but about 90 percent were burned out. Some of the hallways are dark at night or when overcast. Not a big deal to some, but shows a lack of respect and pride for the property.
For a few hundred dollars more, I would rather stay at the Sea Crest next door, or in Sea Pines at Beachside Tennis, or other similar places.
As the proud owners of 315 Breakers we are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your recent stay on Hilton Head Island. Given the direct ocean front view and completely remodeled finishes of this unit we have to be honest in saying your feedback isn’t within the norm of what we are accustomed to hearing. All that said we appreciate the feedback and would like to address each concern. The shower curtain is a standard shower curtain size and is adjustable to desired height. As for the sliding patio door both locks are in working order and at times the two lock systems does cause some confusion. The TV’s in both the living room area and bedroom are new Samsung flat screen smart TV’s with standard remotes. To address your concern on elevators we have clearly disclosed in the description of the property there are no elevators at the Breakers complex. You are correct in that several of the staircases do expose you to the elements, however the property was designed with several covered staircase options. With regard to the porch light HHI takes every precaution possible to avoid light pollution therefore each unit has the ability to turn this light off. Hopefully you had the chance to get a look at how incredible that makes the star viewing from the ocean front balcony :). Last but certainly not least we are actively involved in the Breakers condo association and can assure you each and every detail of property maintenance is always under close watch. This is a property that continually makes investments where needed to provide our guests with a pleasant and comfortable stay at an affordable price. As hopefully you see in our other reviews the reason people chose 315 Breakers is for the location, incredible ocean front view and conveniences of a newly remodeled unit. We hope your week on HHI was rejuvenating and full of lasting memories! Have a great rest of 2019!

We had a great family vacation. This unit was clean and fit our needs. Furniture on patio was perfect.
Great place and awesome view!
We really enjoyed our week here. Very relaxing. The place was simple and perfect and clean. The bed was so comfortable too. Loved being able to sit on the balcony and see/hear the waves at all hours of the day. Also liked the ability to walk to eat and shop and get groceries. We had a list of restaurants we were going to eat at but didn’t because of the variety at Coligny Plaza.
Only thing we didn’t care for was the size of the pool/area. It gets crowded.
We love that condo! We took our kids there 16 years ago! Love the location and the view. I
The property owner is awesome! Thank you so much for such a darling condo. I love having my coffee and my evening drink on the balcony. Best view on the island.
Beach volleyball at the Holiday Inn Tiki Hut - an easy 5 minute beach walk. Shopping at Coligny Plaza and The Beach Market. Walking/running on the beach or bike paths. Biking on bike paths. Fishing off the beach into the ocean. There are loads of activities to do that Hilton Head offers in all their resorts.
