About Sandy Shuey
We live just a few hours away, so we get the opportunity to visit quite often. We save several weeks a year in our island home to enjoy with our family and friends.
Sandy Shuey purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Sandy Shuey chose South Forest Beach
The Tropical Fish is our favorite place to stay. We enjoy the deck for cooking out with friends and family. We spend our island days relaxing on the beach, riding bikes, shopping and eating out at all the great restaurants on the island. Your welcome to call me for our favorites!

Comfort by the beach
My family and I loved staying in this comfortable condo. It was only a few minutes walk to the beach and all the amenities made it a great home away from home. We hope to be back!
Very nice stay Sandy is wonderful to work and communicate with. Answered all my questions quickly. Loved that the pool was just out the back door!
I'm so glad your family enjoyed your vacation this summer.
Thank you for choosing our Tropical Fish Villa for your visit.
I look forward to helping you plan another visit in the future.
A bit smaller and well-used than expected
This was our second year renting in Hilton Head and we chose this different rental unit for three main reasons: 1) it looked nicer and roomier than the previous rental, 2) it had an outdoor grill, and 3) it had a dedicated beach walkway and beachside restrooms. Unfortunately only the last criteria really held true.
First, the most appreciated thing: the unit was stocked with all the necessary soap and paper products, and plenty of towels, of all sizes, were provided.
The pictures are beautiful but a little misleading as to the size of the unit. The downstairs living areas looked bigger than they are. It wasn’t a problem but just a surprise. The bedrooms were decently sized and the bathrooms had plenty of storage, which was much appreciated. The furniture and decor were chosen with taste and style—it looks very pretty. However, it was hard to enjoy the decor because it was badly in need of a deep cleaning. I recognize that the weekly turnover cleaning staff don’t have the time (or directive) to do more than a basic cleaning, focusing on kitchen/bathroom surfaces, and vacuuming the floor. But every window, blind, baseboard, knicknack and table lamp had a layer of dust. Drawers were sticky and windows were dingy. We were unable to use the grill because it was absolutely filthy. Apparently guests are expected to clean it after use but no one seemed to have — which is sad but not fair to push onto the next guest. If a grill is depicted as a feature I would hope its usability was verified.
Finally, while the condo complex is across the street from the beach, it is a large, long complex, and this unit is at the very back. The walk to the beach path includes 10 minutes of walking through the parking lot before getting to the street — and 8 minutes of walking down the beach path
The beachside restroom was very convenient and appreciated. It was great to have the pool right off the back patio.
All in all we were relatively comfortable but had expected a good deal more. It was disappointing not to be able to use the grill. And I wish the unit had been given more TLC. It’s too bad because it should have been a lovely stay, rather than adequate.
We provide two grills one is a new gas grill the other is a smaller electric grill. The cleaning svc. only cleans the inside of condos. We leave a grill brush and ask all guest to please clean the grills after using. The condo is listed as a 2br 2 bath 1100 sq. ft unit.
We recently added a 65in. smart tv and new fireplace cabinet to the living area that may have taken away from the size. All windows and blinds have been cleaned. and the condo gets a thorough cleaning monthly along with the weekly departure cleanings. We ask all guest to call within a few hours of the arrival if any items may need attention. Cleaning svc. will be happy to return.
My family and I were very excited about trying a new property in HHI. This condo was decorated very cute and perfect for the beach. The location was amazing. We met several owners that were warm and welcoming. The pool was fantastic. I read all reviews on this property and they all stated "clean". I only wish this site had a place for photos because I have several that I would love to share. When we checked in, the kitchen cabinets had sticky splattered spots all over them, the shelves had crumbs and dirt (which had to be wiped clean before using), the kitchen table had sticky residue (which came off with a Clorox wipe), the master shower was completely clogged, the grill was filthy. After checking in, I e-mailed Sandy to let her know that her cleaning crew appeared to have laid down on the job. I would want to know if I was an owner. She offered to call them and have them to come back but we had already checked in and I had already used Lysol and Clorox wipes to clean the best I could. My husband laid down across the Master Bedroom and felt gritty debris (turned out to be sand) on it. I asked Sandy if the comforters were laundered between guests and she told me that they were periodically laundered (which means NO). We did not have linens for the couch bed (couch had white crusty stains on it that had to be wiped off - again with a Clorox wipe). We e-mailed Sandy, again (3 times), but never heard back so we left for Wal-Mart to purchase sheets and pillow cases. While we were gone, someone showed up at the door and handed a clear garbage bag with towels and linens to my daughter (never heard back from owner saying they were bringing them). The master bath shower was completely clogged from the get go. We let Sandy know (with photos), she said it would be Saturday, after check out, before anyone would be back to fix it because someone had already been by to fix the latch on a kitchen cabinet door that kept swinging out (this was Monday!!!!). We used the grill but had to buy a grill brush to clean it. I almost did not review this property because "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything". However, I decided to because I depended on reviews to help me with my decision and saw nothing like what I experienced. We made the most of the week but not sure I will ever use VRBO again. I had so many people telling me what great experiences they had with it but, unfortunately, mine was not so great.
During the summer months the cleaning service cleans on Saturdays between
departing and arriving guest. I leave contact information for guest to call the cleaning service should they need any additional cleaning or linens. Guest can also call me for any additional request. The cleaning svc. Is available to come back This guest refused any additional cleaning svc. A message was left for her that additional linens were on there way to be delivered. I have been renting our island for over twenty yrs. We take great pride in our island homes and visit many times. We are constantly adding new items and furnishing to stay current with what guest are expecting to enjoy during vacations. I hope you will consider reading additional reviews to see how other guest have enjoyed our island home.
Nice Condo close to the action
The condo was convenient to get to. Pool was right outside of the door. The villas have a pathway to the ocean. The beach in the area is very nice. Coligny Plaza with many great restaurants and shops is a very short distance away.
Thank you for choosing our Tropical Fish Villa
for your vacation.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.
This property was in close proximity to several popular destinations on Hilton Head Island. The pool was right outside the door and there was a walkway to the beach which was about a 10 minute walk. The owners provided a beach cart and other items for the beach which made the walk easier.
Thank you for choosing our Tropical Fish Villa for your vacation. I look forward to helping you plan another visit soon.
