This unit was totally renovated and updated to a new level not generally found in a rental. Everything including the kitchen with new cabinets, granite countertops and tile backsplash as well as the addition of new stainless appliances and a dining island. The bathroom was also updated with a new vanity, toilet and all new decor. There is a large flat screen TV with cable, in the living which is also furnished with new furniture, lamps, decor and ceiling fans. The villa balcony looks towards the pool and bar and provides a partial ocean view where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee and listen to the birds or relax with a cold beverage at the end of a beach filled day. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the complex. All of this is only a short walk (approximately 100 yards) to the beach and oceanfront pool.
Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Resort is located on the northern part of the island and is one of the few true beachfront complexes in Hilton Head. The resort is loaded with amenities which include the largest beachfront pool on the island, a second smaller and more private pool by Admiral’s Row, a Tiki bar (Jamacian Joes) and ice cream/snow cone stand conveniently located between the pool and the beach, several tennis courts, a playground and grilling area, 2 restaurants (CocoNutz Sports Bar & Gator’s Pizza & Wings), a gym, and laundry facilities located in each Ocean Villa building. It truly offers everything so you really don’t need to leave the resort. But just in case you do decide to explore, you can rent bikes at the resort just outside the security gate; this is the best way to explore the island and see the true charm of Hilton Head.
Most of the island plantations offer guest passes for a small fee, so you can experience the unique feel of all the island areas. The Salty Dog Cafe in Sea Pines offers one of the best seafood dining experiences on the island; plus, you can visit the shops at the marina or sit and have a cold beverage at the outdoor bar while you wait to be seated. Kids love this area and can enjoy the playground or outdoor fire pit. Harbour Town in Sea Pines and Shelter Cove in Palmetto Dunes have restaurants which offer live music during the summer season. One of the islands favorites is Gregg Russell who plays live under the Liberty Oak in Harbour Town. There are several shops & restaurants located in both of these areas as well as at Coligny Plaza. Lawton Stables at Sea Pines offers horseback riding for a tour of the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island. There are also several bike paths that stretch the entire length of the island where you will encounter various wildlife such as alligators, herons, cranes, turtles, etc.
But don’t be afraid to venture off of Hilton Head Island. Old Town Bluffton is only minutes away and offers some of the most unique artists shops and dining experiences. My personal favorite is The Salt Marsh Brewery at Fat Patties, the shipping container outdoor bar is a must if you're a beer connoisseur, the samples are worth trying.
Another nearby activity, just off island, is the Pickney Island National Wildlife Refuge which offers several hiking and bike paths to bring you closer to the animals in their natural habitat.
Needless to say, there is so much to see and do that you will want to visit again and again.+ More
