5 based on 19 traveler reviews
I treated my family to a Mother's Day escape to Hilton Head and rented the Drake House. It fit our needs perfectly! The two living areas worked well with 2 small grandchildren having a quiet space for them in the mornings and another living space for the older grandchildren who like to sleep in. There were a few minor problems that we noticed upon our arrival but Mindy and Pat took care of them very quickly. Pat even called us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. I hope to rent from them again!
Wonderful, Spacious House
We very much enjoyed staying at this beautiful and spacious house. Our group consisted of 5 couples and it was great for each to have a very large room and private bath. Plus the common areas were roomy and comfortable. While we spent most of our time in the 2nd-floor living areas, the ground floor has another family room and kitchen facilities. The house was so large, we could easily have accommodated additional guests. The location was also ideal, so close to the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. I would definitely go back to Drake's Beach House!
Hilton Head First Timers....Loved the house!
This was our family's first trip to Hilton Head and Drakes Breach House was the perfect place to stay! The layout of the 6300sqft home is extremely well-suited for multiple large families. Each over-sized bedroom has it's own sitting area, as well as a full bathroom attached. So we all had a private space to escape to when we wanted some down time. Both the main and the second floors each have kitchen facilities and big family rooms with TVs, so our large family had several options when we wanted to sit and relax.
The second floor has the main kitchen, which is fully stocked and enabled us to dine in and save money while on our trip. We enjoyed family meals at the dining table and our kids loved sitting at the bar on the tall stools. We used the laundry room almost daily and appreciate having that amenity onsite.
One of the best features of the home is the third floor, which sleeps 6 kids easily. Our crew all chose to sleep up there and they had their own sleeping/playing/tv space when we weren't at the beach. They also had their own full bathroom and the views were great!
We visited during January, so we did not use the pool area or outdoor patio for grilling, but it looks great and would be well utilized during warmer days. The beach is a very short walk from the home, making it very manageable to get all the family goods down for a beach trip..... and quick bathroom stops back if needed.
We look forward to visiting Hilton Head Island again and will make this our vacation rental for sure on future return trips. Thanks for a great stay!
50th Wedding Anniversary Family Vacation
We were very impressed with Drakes Beach House. It was spacious enough that our family of 18 never felt crowded. The house was absolutely beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked...would have liked an electric griddle available, but otherwise the kitchen was well equipped. Loved having a pool on the property. Easy walk to the beach......and close to Coligney Circle...easy walk or ride for our daily ice cream runs!
Fantastic as always - a must stay in Hilton Head
We have been coming to Hilton Head for more than 10 Years, and since we found this house, we have never thought to stay any where else. Easy access (walking distance from Coligny and the beach is across the street) make this a perfect spot! Of course since the house is very spacious and the pool and the hot tub are always well maintained --staying in and "lounging" around is just as fun. Our children love to run around - and of course the attic room is perfect for kids of all ages...known for us as the "fort/tent room". Highly recommend- know and love the owners.
Fall at Drake's Beach House
Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your home. The house is so large and perfect for family vacations. We spent lots of time at the beach and the golfers had so many courses to play. The kids disappeared to the 3rd level and just had a blast. The kitchen is joy to cook in (or take out). We enjoyed the quick walk to Coligny to shop and eat. We look forward to coming again to Drake's Beach House. We can't wait to return!
From the Owner
“We have been vacationing in Hilton Head Island every year since 1997. Our family purchased the home at North Forest Beach iin 2002 because of the location. We are less than 50 steps away from the beach and only a three-minute walk to Coligny Circle. It's also a golfers' heaven with more than 20 top golf courses within 10 miles of the home. This truly is our second home and we know you'll enjoy it as much as we do!”
