My parents have owned 2 weeks in the summer at SwallowTail since 1976 - Swallow Tail has been in the family since I was 6 months old. It began as a summer vacation spot for us but has now evolved nearly 40 years later to a family reunion spot. My parents still own 2 weeks and my 5 sisters and... More

Let me start off by saying that we own here and have owned here since before Swallowtail, inside SeaPines, on Hilton Head, was even built. Way back to the 70's. That was even before Marriott got into TimeShare. About 50% of the original owners from back then still own their units and most of the owners use their weeks every... More

Its seems like the place hasn't been updated since 1978. Paper thin walls, serviceable kitchen, barely average bathrooms, and the smell of "wet-dog" in the air...all with a Brady Bunch decor. I think a Best Western may have more modern decor. The Management really needs to update the place! The best thing about this place is the location - great... More

The a/c could not keep up with upstairs unless we kept all curtains closed. Mold was easy to spot in the air vents. We had a horrendous problem with fruit flies all week. Maintenance was attentive and housekeeping was responsive to our needs. We attended the "welcome breakfast" on Monday - what a joke! It was scheduled to start at... More

We had a nice 2BR/2BA on the Golf Course (Though with a good Tree Barrier) A little too close to the pool where some ignored the hours it is open and were there making a lot of noise late in the evening…but it was not rely bad. The frieda kid particularly loved the Gator in the pond obsessed with it... More

Private, quiet, great location in Sea Pines,nice two level floorplan with the master suite and sitting area on second level. We are not picky... More

Once you finally find it--- it's a gem. Unit 2883 It is roomy, very clean. Our furniture in unit very comfortable, even the mattress. Cabinets in baths and bedroom dated but plenty of space. Huge master bath, closet. More lighting in bedrooms would be good. Separate sitting room. Big eqipped kichen.Heated outdoor pool. Washer and dryer in unit.

We thought the unit would be old and smelly based on other reviews. We were wrong! The unit was relatively modern and we thought very nice for the price. It was also well stocked in the kitchen. We had to call about the internet once and a service guy was there immediately. The condo is perfect for a relaxing time... More
