On Hilton Head Island for a beach wedding, my wife and I and four other family members just returned from a most enjoyable week in what another reviewer referred to as a “home away from home”. Situated in a quiet neighborhood in the gated Shipyard Plantation and surrounded by tall pine trees, meandering walking/biking pathways and a 27-hole golf course, we found this to be a wonderful place to relax and get away, while still being close enough to the HH beach, restaurant and shopping “action.”
For a thorough and accurate description of the property, the owners overview is a must read. Sometimes in our travels we have found that the picture presented by owners doesn’t reflect reality, but in this case we have found a near perfect match between what we expected and what we saw upon arrival.
One thing that doesn’t come through in the description, however, is the sense I had of the owners’ sincere desire to make our stay carefree. From the moment we expressed interest and requested more information to the time we left, I always had the feeling that David and Dianne were only an e-mail or call away and they would respond to our needs. In fact, shortly after we arrived, we received a call from the cleaning service asking whether everything was satisfactory!
Not surprisingly, we didn’t have any special needs, as all that we required was at our disposal. There were plenty of kitchen accessories and almost everything worked perfectly. I say “almost” everything, because the day before our arrival, I received a message from David that he had just learned that the coffee maker was not functioning properly. He seemed concerned that this glitch might make our stay less than perfect, but, being somewhat of a coffee addict, I simply packed a small French press as an emergency measure. As it turned out, when we arrived and discovered the malfunctioning device, we also stumbled upon a second, perfectly fine coffee maker in the kitchen cupboard, along with another French press. Tragedy averted!
A pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

This home is truly beautiful...it is certainly your home away from home. The property is located in one of the nicest plantations in Hilton Head. The owners took great care in providing all amenities for a joyful stay.
I would certainly recommed this property to anyone wanting a relaxed vacation.
