LOVE this place!! Highly recommend!
My husband & I have spent the last four nights at this property.... we'll be leaving tomorrow and have already started planning our return trip! I can't say enough good things about this place... LOVED IT.
For those who haven't been to Hilton Head before - it's absolutely amazing. This was our second trip - HH will be our only "beach vacation" destination from here on out! The beaches are beautiful (beach near Night Heron is very quiet!), the island has a great natural /outdoorsy feel, and there are amazing restaurants all over the island. (Highly recommend Truffles!!) Savannah is nearby for a daytrip on a cloudy/rainy day, and today we went kayaking on Broad Creek and had several dolphins come right up to our kayaks!
The Night Heron community is great. I love the quaint feeling - reminds me of Girl Scout camp as a kid! The villas are tucked into the woods and feel isolated, even though there's plenty to do nearby. It's a shady 5 min walk to the beach, and an easy bike ride to Harbour Town shops/restaurants (sorry - didn't time it). Noise from traffic or other residents was never an issue -we fell asleep to the sound of frogs and awoke to the sound of birds singing. This villa backs up to a wooded area of trees, palmetto, and Spanish moss - fabulous view!
The property itself is great - nicely renovated with fresh paint colors, great kitchen & bathroom, nice furniture throughout, etc. Big flat screen TV's in living room and bedroom are a perk. WiFi was reliable, which was good because we're computer junkies! The living room has lots of space - we brought our dog, so it was nice to have a large space to set up his XL dog crate in the living room. Washer & dryer in the bathroom were convenient - they're small, but wash/dry quickly. The bathroom cabinet has a shelf labelled "dog drying towels," which was a nice touch! (There is also a dog bed & several dog toys included.) Two boogie boards & a skim board on the screened porch - we didn't use them, but would be great for a family with kids. Cleaning supplies are included for any quick cleanups (we love the Shark sweeper - need one for our own house!). Honestly, I can't think of anything that this house was lacking or any drawbacks that I noted.
Booking was easy through BeachBum property management, and Margot & Jim (property managers) stopped by today while they were in the neighborhood. Overall, we had a great trip and wish we didn't have to leave tomorrow!! We'll be back!
