Fair to Average Villa

  • 3 of 5

The area was nice, and we loved the workout facility across the way; they had a nice variety of weight-lifting equipment. The family loved the beach, and the children liked the pool. There was plenty of room, but we can't give this villa any higher than a fair or average because the HVAC was very dirty. I ended up getting sick from mold spores inside the HVAC system (hadn't had any colds or sicknesses for over a 1 1/2 and got sick on this vacation!). When we got home, I detected that our clothes smelled moldy from staying in this villa. The decor is a bit outdated, and we could not find cotton sheets for all of the beds. On a more positive note, the beach toys and trolley were great to take to the beach. Sorry, it took so long to write this, but I did leave a hand written note behind.

Owner's Response: We just realized that you stayed at our villa in August of 2015 and have posted this review a year later (August of 2016). We appreciate you taking the time to write this review and apologize for any troubles you encountered, and wish you had informed us earlier. If there truly was mold in that condo it would have been a health hazard that needed taken care of immediately, but no one else has made a similar complaint. Michellene has a severe mold allergy and has stayed in our condo at least 4 times since your visit with no issues. We have the A/C cleaned and checked every year and are planning to have it done again next week. Hilton Head is extremely humid, so making sure our condo is free of moisture or mold is a top priority. I am also sorry to hear that you could not locate the correct sheets. At that time we supplied all of the linens in the condo, and items randomly appeared and disappeared throughout the year. Since your stay we have made a deal with the cleaning company to supply the linens, and they are changed after every renter. They put sheets on both queen beds and leave a sofa pack in the hallway closet for the two sofa beds. As for the décor we consider it comfortable and family friendly. In the past two years we have put in a new fridge, microwave, and stove. We had new carpet installed in January of 2016, and replaced light fixtures in June of 2016. The last week of August, 2016 we are updating both bathroom vanities will have granite or solid surface countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms. Along with the new carpet, appliances, and light fixtures this should give the condo a fresher look.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Hilton Head staying at this property. The very best thing about the condo is the close proximity to the pool.... right outside your door! Everything was clean and just as advertised.... anytime we had a problem or issue I just emailed the owners and they took care of it. Tile in the main living areas was a big bonus since we had our grandkids... easier to keep clean. Loved having a full-size washer and dryer right there by the kitchen. We rode bikes or drove to beach but the actual walk was only about 15 minutes or less. Great area close to Coligny and shops and restaurants . Loved all the trees and shade and sitting out back on the patio. I really can't think of any negative except the T.V. in the second bedroom was a little older.... but we did not really watch any T.V. while we were there so not a big issue for us. We would not hesitate to go back and stay again!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Hilton Head. The villa made us feel like we were at home. Everything we needed was there. The Villa was clean and neat. Our kids loved being so close to the pool. Area was peaceful but also centrally located. Walking distance to stores and beach made our stay even more relaxing. Owners were great to work with. They left great detailed instructions on where everything was located and what we needed to do. Responded quickly! Overall experience was great! Only suggestion would be an updated TV with service in front bedroom. Will definitely be returning! We are already planning our next visit! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

One of the best locations on the island. Walking distance to a lot of attractions. Villa is located literally 10 yards from the swimming pool and the sundeck.

Coligny plaza with all kinds of boutiques and restaurants, and a wide beach are five minutes away. Villa itself is clean and well equipped.

Will definitely try to rent it next spring break. Free access to a gym and tennis courts is a nice bonus.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

I really want to thank you for opening up your home to us for our weekend getaway. It was lovely and we had the best time. The people in Hilton Head were very friendly and we had a blast just hanging either in the condo or out in town. I would definitely try to get this same location again for future trip. There were really no downsides. The most we could bring up was the remote for the cable was acting funny and no cable in one of the bedrooms but we didn't care because we had so much more going for us. We loved it and would do it again. Thanks.
