The open and charming living room and kitchen invited us to feel at home right away. The kitchen was well-equipped with EVERYTHING we needed. We had plenty of glasses, plates, bowls, etc. to get us through multiple meals without having to run the dishwasher several times a day. The large kitchen table, as well as the four bedrooms and baths, comfortably accommodated our group of 8-10 family and friends for the week.
Every morning we would pull ourselves from our comfy beds (every one of our crew loved the beds!) to make our quick 3-minute walk to the beach to watch the sun rise. The townhouse location is great - nestled between the beach and beautiful Port Royal Golf Course.
The front porch is equipped with 6 rocking chairs overlooking the pool and hot tub - great for reading, relaxing, visiting, and keeping an eye on kids at the pool area from the comfort of the porch. Every day, we enjoyed spending time at the pool and hot tub that sits under a partial canopy of southern pine and palmetto trees.
The owner, Liz, was very responsive to questions and checked in with us several times before we arrived and throughout the week we were there to ensure our needs were being met. She also provided great recommendations of restaurants and activities.
Can't say enough good about this vacation home! It was perfect for our family and we are looking forward to returning to make HHI a family tradition!
The villa was very clean and nicely decorated and although it was one of the condos with a longer walk to the ocean the views were probably the prettiest of all ocean palm villas. The screened in porch looked out to a little bridge over a lagoon that we walked on and looked at the turtles. The other part of the porch faced a fountain. There was a free shuttle to ride to the beach but we didn't need it because there was always a parking spot at the westin (all amenities at the westin were included with the stay ) so we just drove over. If you are a tree lover like me and like to experience the beach but also like trees you will love the beautiful trees that surround the area. There are nice places to walk and ride bikes. I like quiet less crowded areas and the beach was perfect. The only negative was the pool close to our villa was closed for cleaning when I wanted to go. I didn't see anyone cleaning it. Just a sign hanging. I think when people pay money for an amenity as advertised it should be available and the pool people need to get matters taken care of pronto.. ..but there was another pool, the ocean and so many other things to do it didn't matter all that much. I'm sure the owner could not do anything about that. Overall it was a wonderful stay. Loved it.
