Hilton Head is within driving distance of our home. Plus we love the superb ocean front location at Admiral's Row in Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Resort.

The condo was lovely, very clean and updated. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise. Location was great with beautiful view of the ocean.
Thank you for your comments! We agree the balcony view is amazing!
The view from Balcony was absolutely great
The access to beach and pool was great hope to go back again next year but stay a little longer
Thank you! We agree that we have one of the best view of the ocean from our villa's balcony! We hope you can return again to stay at our Hilton Head Island paradise.
Property owner very attentive to our travel process or needs.
We’re glad you enjoyed your time! Thanks for your kind words.
Great for season vacationers like us!
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed you time on Hilton Head Island.
Wished we stayed elsewhere.
Elevator had been out of order since June 30 per its maintenance sign. I was never told about it not working until a day or so before our rental on Aug 1 so we had no choice but for two seniors to walk up 3 flights and one has a bad ankle joint.
Floors were sticky as from repeated Swiffering but no real cleaning. We would not go barefoot. Unit is not immaculate nor are the furnishings up to standard expectations.
Freezer cycled on and off nonstop and you could hear it in the bedroom. This issue was noted by a previous renter but to no avail.
Sofa squealed like a pig when you sat on it. Cannot imagine how bad the pullout bed would feel.
Water pressure in bathroom sink was laughable even with both hot & cold turned on. Shower was modestly better.
Worst of all was the bedroom with so little space between the bed and the wall that one has to walk sideways to enter or exit what can only be described as a well used bed. Pillows were incredibly shy of any substance.
Plus side: the view and distance to the beach is super.
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed our proximity to the beach.
We were also frustrated with the elevator situation. Unfortunately, the “return to service" date was put back several times. We were assured that the repairs would be completed before your visit. It was only at the last minute that we learned the repairs had hit an unexpected snag and informed you as soon as we heard about the new delay. We are so sorry for the inconvenience you suffered and hope you made use of the complimentary service provided by the resort to carry your possessions up and down the stairs. We are here at our condo now and the elevator is fully operational.
With regard to the freezer, we were not aware of a problem at the time of your stay, but subsequently have found out that the freezer was in the process of failing. Being only 3 years old and an extremely expensive unit, we would never have expected that to occur. We have replaced the freezer with a new unit this week. We have two under- counter units - a separate refrigerator and a freezer.
We endeavor to keep our condo as up-to-date as possible. Several items of furniture including the sleep sofa were replaced 2 years ago. Our sleep sofa is an expensive commercial quality model which features a more robust frame and enhanced mattress and support. We checked the sofa out today and noticed that there is a rubbing noise as the fabric rubs around the frame when you first sit down on it. We are going to look into what we can do to mitigate the noise.
Yes, the bedroom is on the smaller side - as are all the 1-bedroom condos in Hilton Head Beach and Tennis. We hope that our photos clearly show the size as we want to be accurate in our representations. Bed pillows were replaced a few months ago, but we will take a look at them again.
We are looking into all the other issues you described. Some of them we cannot duplicate. For example, the water pressure is just fine and the floors do not feel sticky.
We are most concerned that your stay did not meet your expectations and invite you to contact us to discuss because as far as we can tell, this review is the first we have heard from you about these issues. For anyone who may be considering booking with us, we always ask to let our on-site company or us know of any concerns you have on the day you arrive so that we can work to correct the situation immediately! We really do want to work to make your stay the best it can possibly be.
We had an amazing week at the true oceanfront property. Wonderful views. Short walk to the beach. Very nice!
