Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 baths, large closets and ocean views from every window/door

Centrally located on Hilton Head Island with direct beach access and ocean views from every window is what we know as our beloved Island Club villa. Charming and traditional decor with all the extras that one could ask for, defines this ground level Atlantis unit. Unloading luggage, carrying shopping bags, and going to the pool is especially easy as the front door is only steps from the loading/unloading parking area. A guarded gate, watchful and dependable staff, and well lit parking area are just a few of the many reasons one can feel safe, secure and confident while visiting and vacationing at the Island Club Villas.

We have been visiting the Island for many years and a personal testimony that is significant and special to me is as follows: On a much anticipated shopping trip to the many outlets and very nice thrift/antique shops, I happened to drop my wallet while getting into my car. It was black sequined with a waist/shoulder strap and held 5 one hundred dollar bills. When I discovered the loss was after I had gone off the Island to the outlet shops and had walked around for some time.. thus it was at least 1.5 hours into the loss before I drove back in the parking area. There hanging on a waist level lamp post, was my wallet untouched and with the money intact. Now, I would have probably turned it in had I found it, but to think someone was honest enough just to put it close to the place found, was incredible. We have experienced this type of honest, safe and family oriented environment since our first visit years ago.

So if you, like our family needs and desires a safe, fun and memorable family or individual vacation, please consider our villa for your next vacation. Our family anxiously awaits the much needed time that we spend at this special haven. While here, we forget all the “stuff” that is in our very scheduled life and simply relax and enjoy the moments; be it walking on the beach, riding the bikes, dining out, shopping or best of all, just hanging out with family and friends in the unit.

Ocean front and less than 2 minutes to the beach with gorgeous sunrises and fabulous sunsets makes strolling the beach convenient and much anticipated. Dolphin are often seen on the water’s horizon and sounding waves helps ease the most heavy of burdens.

This villa sleeps 8-10 people making it easy for big families to stay in one location. The master bedroom has a king size bed with HDTV. There are two standard beds in one bedroom and two queen beds in the other bedrooms. Each of the three bedrooms has it’s own bath and spacious closet space. The villa is very private being the end unit of the building and is surrounded with beautiful palm trees, grassed lawn and stone walkways.

The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessary appliances (included a crock pot) to have a nice meal 'in' if desired.

Fishing on site or picnicking at one of the beautifully shaded picnic tables with gas grills and again beautiful flowers, is a favorite thing we look forward to during our family’s vacation week. Strolling the beach, swimming in the pool or taking a nap in the pool’s tanning shelf is an excellent way to spend a perfect vacation day. A nearby game room and close movie theater is often the ending of a wonderful day. Being in the middle of the island is a great advantage for shopping and dining. There are boutiques, outlet stores, consignment and high end thrift stores. For our family, riding bikes together is probably the most enjoyed activity we do since there are bike paths over the entire island for biking and roller blading.

The Island has some of the finest dining in the world. We always make a point of going to Harbor Town on Thursday nights. There we eat at the Crazy Crab which is one of the greatest seafood restaurants on the Island. We walk the decks and watch the magnificent yachts as well as visit the shops in the courtyard. Simply sitting and listening to story telling and live music is quite a memorable experience as well.

The entire Island is that of one huge resort. The streets and highways are dotted with flowering shrubbery and palm trees while ponds and water falls often grace the entrance of various resorts and golf courses. If you are a golfer, the Island has twelve of the most beautiful championship courses in the country.

Going to the Salty Dog Café is a real treat for the young at heart. Join thousands of others around the world and buy yourself a Salty Dog T-shirt in a variety of colors and styles as well as treating yourself to the best hotdogs to be found. Crabbing and parasailing, dolphin tours or deep sea fishing are all popular sporting events that the whole family can enjoy.

All in all, just the thought of Hilton Head Island brings a smile to my lips and a skip in my walk. The happy memories that our family has shared together will be held forever dear in my heart.. From the white sand and high tide folly to the sea grass swaying in the wind; or the smells of salt water and sun, seafood and sweet mimosa all bring yearning of past days of understated splender.

Each season has its own special qualities. We love to go to the lsland in winter as some days reach 70 plus degrees which is quite different from our home in the mountains of NC. In October, the ocean water is warmer than it is in May and surprises many first time visitors at that time of year. With hardly ever any temperatures below freezing, the greenery and tropical plants thrive year round.

We welcome you to Hilton Head Island and thank you for considering our wonderful home by the sea! Our listing is rather new so please keep that mind in the review section. May your vacation time be blessed and memories be forever cherished..

About David and Cindy Blust

We are the Blust family from Boone NC. We are David, Cindy, Richard, Clayton and Graham plus 8 canines in which we take turns bringing to the island. This wonderful place is our family's special and often much needed retreat from a busy and hectic life. We let it all go while here and drink in the fleeting moments. We love our bike riding; on the fantastic bike paths, on the beach, around the golf courses, on the sound. The biking is our family favorite. Of course the island as a whole is glorious and our time there is precious. It is a solice to our souls, a revival to our spirits and a relaxation to our bodies...

David and Cindy Blust purchased this condo in 1994

Why David and Cindy Blust chose Hilton Head

One would have to see it in order to believe how marvelously the resort grounds are kept and buildings updated. We looked at many properties before choosing this particular one.

Location was also a huge factor. This resort is mid island and even though we are not regular tennis players, the tennis courts, swimming pool and safe environment were key factors in our choice. The staff is and has always been friendly beyond expectation.

What makes this condo unique

The family being together and usually everyone is in a 'good way'....no attitudes, etc...We do things 'together' which is hard to do at home where real life happens....The shopping is fun....always going to see the Yachts and eating at that Crazy Crab. We go to movies, rent movies, grill out....cook in, play board games, ride bikes together....It gets me 'island sick' just talking about it. Everyone that goes says they feel like it is home when they walk in the door. I think the place is just blessed in all ways......especially that first walk of the year on the beach....smelling the salt air, hearing the birds and waves and watching the way the sun clips the movements on the water. We love the fact that even in July our private beach is not overwhelmingly crowded. We love the sunrises and the sunsets... OMG....it is a little piece of Heaven on Earth!

Perfect and Beautiful!!! All We had hoped for!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Cindy for allowing us to rent such a wonderful condo!! This is our second time staying with you and we have loved each time!!! Your condo is spacious and perfect for my family of 5 and a few friends! We love the layout of the condo and appreciate how organized and clean it was when we entered it. The condo is very inviting and comfortable. The convenience of how close the condo is to the ocean is wonderful. This is our favorite condo and plan to come back next year!!!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Thank you so much for this awesome review. Reviews are very important for others who are looking for that perfect place. I am prejudiced but our family thinks it is the greatest place on earth! When someone chooses to take the time to write such a review, it is such an encouragement to us. I work really hard at making this place feel 'homey'; warm and inviting. Every time I leave the unit I look around and envision my guests coming in to see if it is the perfection that I would desire myself. I am so glad your family had a wonderful and memorable vacation and certainly look forward to having you back soon. Blessings, Cindy

A wonderful week with family!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Island Club lived up to our expectations! Bringing family members together from across the country was worth the time and effort to enjoy the wonderful accommodations and Hilton Head Island. We were pleased the first floor unit was so close to the beach access, the grassy lawn area, the playground, even the pool. Parking was handy and convenient. The interior was as it appears in the photos - and very clean and well organized. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, we never lacked for a suitable dish or utensil! Instructions and handy suggestions were posted by the owner which were very helpful. The room arrangement was ideal for us with small children. We rented bikes which we enjoyed. The pools were clean and never too crowded. Grocery shopping was nearby as were many restaurants. The landscaping and grounds were especially beautiful and well maintained. We were very happy with our choice and hope to vacation there again.

Surprisingly Uncomfortable Temperature!!

  • 2 of 5

My first clue should have been the number of fans in the condo along with instructions of where to place them for comfort. Along with the notice that the A/C unit was older and due to work going on in the building the A/C would not be adequate. As well as the energy

efficiency issues.The unit ran continuously with the temperature never being below 78. There were nights we were miserable due to the temperature. I received a text from the owner that the A/C had been serviced recently and next service was due the 18th.

Then there are the multiple plug-ins in each outlet and only the lower plug worked in each outlet. I notified the owner of the A/C issues and that when I tried to plug in one of the fans there were sparks and smell of fire. She said she would have an electrician check it the following week.

The unit is pretty, the location to the beach was perfect. The cabinets were well stocked with pans and utensils. Except there was no ice maker, Cindy had told me that in advance and we brought ice trays.

We had plenty of room for our family with the three bedrooms and bathrooms. The bathrooms need to be updated, especially fixtures, tubs and the inability to use any of the exhaust fans. A set pliers were required to engage the shower in the third bathroom.

There were multiple notes throughout the unit telling us any and everything that you would want to know!!

Lastly, the outside metal railing was separated from the concrete at each base. the rail was a potential hazard for us as well as the grandchildren. It is obvious that was not a new occurrence. It has been that way for a long time.

Owner's Response: You are a guest and we value your opinion as it helps us see how we might improve. Thank you for sharing. I would like to address your concerns and some miscommunications and how we are attending these. 1. The AC is not older, we did not suggest such, nor was there construction going on in the building having anything to do with our unit or AC. The energy efficiency issue was addressed and confirmed when ground's maintenance men made observation and along with the cooling and heating professional cautioning us of children leaving the sliding doors open to play on the patio or go outside. During warm weather heat comes in the unit. This causes the AC to constantly run and comprises the cooling quality in our unit. It is costly and uncomfortable. We had asked if they needed an emergency AC repair and we would schedule such, but the next day the guest said it was much better. Also on a follow up call the guest told us she loved the unit. 2. We have fans for each bedroom as guests have suggested being better able to sleep by the white noise fans make and they are difficult to pack/bring. It was not to suggest we have poor AC. They do help if heat comes in the unit from doors being left open unintentionally, however the AC is working perfectly. 3. An electrician found only one bad outlet behind the dresser. This was fixed and the others worked fine. The plumber is also scheduled to fix the shower (this is the first I have heard). The last guest did not have a problem with it. 4.The baths are up to date in my opinion. There were and are many pictures of our unit. Others have been well pleased with not only the cleanliness but the varied themes in each bedroom and bath. I will replace any and all vents which do not work. 5. The railing is loose at the bottom, not broken and this issue has been turned over to the regime in which it is their responsibility included in my dues. I am sad that it seemed hazardous to you. The patio/railing is just inches off the ground as this is a first floor unit. Lastly and most importantly, our goal is for families to have a pleasant and memorable vacation and we strive diligently for this to happen. It is our home (which we love) and we count it an honor to share it with guests. We have always gotten very high ratings and exceptional feedback. We again regret that you had this experience and thus again tell you that we will do our best to continuing improving for others' benefit.

I felt terrible but I guess in perspective, it is a small matter....right? I just have this thing about everything being as perfect as possible! You guys are the best. THANK YOU FOR TREATING OUR HOME AS YOU WOULD YOUR OWN! ....I always tell my boys, a 'place' needs love, respect and attention much like an actual person! Look so forward to possibly seeing you guys again next year!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Just want to say thank you to Cindy for her open communication of what to expect and how organized her vacation home is. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we loved the fact that we all had bedrooms we could retreat at the end of the day. It was a relaxing vacation from everything that has been going on in our family the last year and a half. We also got to see the sea turtle nest on the beach, very near experience! It was wonderful just walking off of the patio to the grass and head on to the beach. Again, Cindy is wonderful to work with and she and David has a little piece of paradise on Hilton Head. This is one of the largest condos we've stated in and it was wonderful to have a fully stocked kitchen like we have at home, that is HUGE bonus points to a lady that loves to cook! Thank you so much for our great vacation, we appreciate it very much! Prayers for you and your family!

Owner's Response: Well, you are most welcome and your review blesses my heart greatly. Yes a well stocked kitchen is important to me as well! I like to at least have some basics with which to cook or bake. I have to tell you and others, I have the most awesome guests that could be had. If they need cooking oil or spray and have to purchase it, they leave it for other guests.... or sugar, flour, coffee, etc. My cleaning company (and myself when I can ever get to this glorious place) helps keeps dates for freshness on such staples and spices. Amanda, I am sure your family appreciates all you do for them to have such a perfect time together, all the planning and work it takes to just find and reserve a place. I would certainly appreciate such if someone did that for me. You are a gem! Thank you for taking the time to post this review. It not only blesses me but greatly helps others to book with confidence and excitement. Having something to 'look forward to' is almost a necessity in today's world. There is nothing worse than to be disappointed by a vacation place. In my 60 years I have had that happen way too often! It is truly my heart that each guest not only enjoy themselves with fun and laughter but also 'feel' the spirit of this place for the peace and rest aspect of getting away from life for a moment. I am thankful you made good memories and you all were excellent guests Thank you and thank you for taking care of my home as if it were your own..... Cindy

Great location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Cindy,

Six adults who desperately needed vacation away from work and home, were so happy to find your rental in the Island Club very nice and well equipped. The location of your unit is so convenient to the beach walkway right outside the patio door. We each had our own bath and bedroom plus the living area and kitchen area were very spacious. Your decor provided a welcome feeling.

We were thoroughly relaxed which was our goal on this trip. We have been to HH several times over the last 20 years, sometimes needing a house for a huge family, and sometimes just for a small group. We have stayed at a timeshare in the Island Club but on a higher floor. Still a beautiful location, but your unit is beyond what we expected. Thank you so much. We will be back! Maybe for 2 weeks!

Warm Regards, Your Pittsburgh Friends, Dan Lynn Anthony Elaine Yobbi, and your Baltimore friends Tom and Jamie Dailey

Owner's Response: Dear friends.....I am so happy that our home was warm and welcoming. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. It makes my heart glad! As I have told others, when I leave the unit after my yearly deep cleaning and refurbishing...I look around and envision myself as a guest. I ask myself, "what would I love to enter, what kind of atmosphere would I want to spend my most valued vacation?"....Then I normally smile to myself and feel like I have accomplished such! This is my home and I love it! It is an honor to share it with folks like you who grasp the 'feel' and not just the unit as a nice place. Your review has indicated such to me. It might be awesome in every 'measurable' way.....but I desire from my heart that it be awesome in the unmeasurable ways......That being the spirit of the place. The peace and rest and blessing upon it! Thank you again. Reviews help others when they are looking for the perfect place. I hope you have precious memories and got the rest that we all need from this 'time out' in such a busy and crazy world. Cindy
