Guestbook comments from the owner

We enthusiastically recommend Halcyon Days to anyone considering renting an oceanfront vacation house on Hilton Head Island. We used every room in the house - 6 couples, one single adult, two children and a baby. Everyone (well, except the baby) raved upon arrival, seeing the great room & huge windows overlooking the beautiful beach and ocean. Everyone continued to rave upon seeing the rest of the house - nothing but praise throughout our weeklong stay. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and a terrific kitchen/dining room/great room for gathering. It's a well thought out setup - a refined yet relaxed decor, a big basket of towels by the beach-side door, three refrigerators on the main floor, two washers and dryers, two (two!) elevators for easy unloading & loading, etc, etc, etc. André and Rosie were most helpful and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely stay at Halcyon Days again, and hopefully we'll do it soon.

Beautiful Oceanfront home

  • 5 of 5
This home was just as described by the owner. The house was a great size for our family of 8 adults and 4 kids. We were all able to spread out and have plenty of room to get together for meals and games. The house was very clean and well maintained. The pictures just don't do it justice. Having elevators to bring all your stuff up to your rooms was an added bonus. The pool area was great for the kids and there were tons of beach toys. We had never stayed on this part of the island before but really loved it here. Rented bikes and rode every evening on great bike paths. Andre' the owner, was awesome. Thank you for all your help in making this trip so nice for us. I wish we could have stayed longer! We have recommended this property to all of our friends and hope to stay there again this year.

Great Stay at Halcyon House

  • 5 of 5
Just had a great experience staying at Halcyon House for a week with my high school golfers and parents. It met all our expectations and more. The ocean views were terrific. I know Andre has been going through a tough time, but he made sure everything was as advertised. Not once did we have to call and have something taken care of during our stay. We would definitely consider renting again next year.

Amazing house with great owners!

  • 5 of 5
My entire family,24 members, stayed at Halcyon Days and loved every minute. The location is perfect, could not be any better. The house is well maintained and all bedrooms were very spacious. The house was extremely well stocked with extras not found at other vacation homes. Andre and Rosie really went all out with extras. We contacted Andre twice during our stay and he answered promptly and took care of everything. We will be staying here again!!!!!

Our Family Vacation at Halcyon Days

  • 5 of 5
Our family vacation last week at Halcyon Days was wonderful. The house is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. There were 12 of us (9 adults and 3 children). We had more than enough room, with plenty of privacy. The house was immaculate when we arrived and everything was in excellent condition. Andre' worked with us on a special rate as we had rented Yellowdogs three years ago. We really lucked out on the weather and couldn't have asked for a better family vacation. We would recommend this property to anyone. We hope to return in the next couple of years.

Very Clean and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
My family vacationed at Hilton head this summer (2010). Unfortunately, we had to move to a new beach house because the first home was very dirty and had significant mold growing on the walls in two separate bathrooms. Because of some initial difficulty with the rental company, I contacted Andre' to inquire about his properties. He was so kind and took us on a tour of both homes. They were absolutely stunning! The furniture and overall design satisfied every expectation for a beach-front property. AND THEY WERE BOTH VERY CLEAN! I want to make it clear that we did not stay in either home. We had to honor our contract with our rental company and stay in one of their rentals. But my wife and I are looking forward to renting from Andre' next year and would be excited to stay in either home. The photos represent the true appearance of both homes. Thank you again Andre' for the time you spent with us. It was nice to see someone care so much about their rentals and keep them so neat and clean.

Owner's Response: This review is such a pleasure to receive. This family was visiting our lovely Island and not experiencing it as they should. Their rental company finally came through with alternate accommodation, but not before creating a pretty dismal impression of Hilton Head hospitality. We had an opportunity to show how much most VRBO Owners care about the condition of their homes and care about their guests whole vacation experience. This is a reminder to renters that talking with the owner of the home that you plan to rent is critical. You need to establish a rapport and find out if the owner lives on the Island and if they really care about you, your family and your vacation. We are delighted that John and his family will be returning to Hilton Head and we look forward to welcoming them into our "Rental Family".

One of the Best in 15 Years

  • 5 of 5
I have been running a golf trip for my friends to Hilton Head for 15 years. I try to get a House on or near the Ocean so that we can do the Beach early in the morning and get pastries at Coligny Circle for Breakfast. Since this is an all Male trip, the House fits our needs perfectly with each having a bedroom a prvate bathroom for each. Views for the House and the master bedrooms are great. What a sight to wake up to each day. Elevators were great to get those heavy Clubs up to the 2nd & 3rd floors. We had a dinner party one night with another party of 8. Had plenty of room to do the cooking and entertaining as dusk approched. I would highly recommend this House and working and dealing with Andre' was a delight. Looking forward to next year already and maybe getting the House again.

Owner's Response: John, thank you for your very kind review. This was the first time you and your group has stayed at either of our homes and we are delighted that you enjoyed "Halcyon Days" so much.
One thing that we appreciated, as the owners and as the ones managing your group reservation with you, was the thorough communication that you sent us. Using email throughout the process you explained exactly what you needed, what your budget was and the exact make up of your group.
Because you were making a reservation, with a relatively short lead time, you were able to negotiate a good rate for your group and we were able to fill a week, which might have stayed empty.
When you had questions, you asked them clearly and we were able to respond right away. By the time you arrived on Hilton Head Island, Andre' felt as if he had known you for years.
Something else that we appreciated was the condition in which you left our home, on the morning that you departed. We take a lot of pride in presenting our guests with an impeccable home, upon their arrival. As our cleaning crew have only from checkout at 10am until the new guests arrive at 5pm to get over 7,400 sq .ft. in perfect condition, the wonderful way in which you and your group left the house made their job a little easier. It is not often that al all male sporting group provides such a lovely surprise.
John, we look forward to hearing from you again and we look forward to welcoming you as a member of the "Halcyon Days Rental Family" for many years to come.

Rosie and Andre'


From the Owner

We built Halcyon Days, completing it in June 2004, to compliment our 6 bedroom rental home, Yellowdog by the Sea. Both houses are on the same beach, on Hilton Head Island. The 8 bedroom 8.5 bathroom configuration, with the over 7,500 sq. ft. size has been an incredible hit with larger families, multi generational families and executive. North Forest Beach on Hilton Head Island is the perfect location for an oceanfront beach home and for an oceanfront vacation.
