For Christmas we made our way to the great Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. Having been before with very favorable exchanges, our expectations were high and The Cottages at Shipyard did not disappoint. Suprisingly it seemed a fairly slow week on the island and the Cottages were sparsly populated as well which made for a quiet relaxing week.
Our cottage was situated offset from a fairway and on a very small waterway which due to drought resembles a ditch, with other mostly unoccupied units across the way. Our large cul de sac had a grilling area, pool and heated outdoor hot tub. Parking was convenient and the location was perfect for access to the course, town, and the bike paths It's easy to love the Shipyard plantation. It's large, its gated, and it is beautiful.
The unit itself was a nicely appointed, lovely three bedroom townhouse style condo with front and back poches. The furnishings were very nice and like new. The decor was tasteful and up to date. We had four adult guests and the unit easily accomodated six adults.
Even the dining table was large enough for all. The kitchen was well stocked and being the holidays we cooked several meals in and had everthing we needed and room to move. The place was clean, the beds were comfy and all you could ask for. It wasn't a huge unit and the living room dining combined offer enough seating but it was good we didn't do Movie Night or livingroom seating would have presented a challenge. With everyone on the move at all times, it was perfectly sufficient, but I wouldnt call it spacious. Again, we were six adults and a couple would have felt it to be larger feeling; maybe perfect.
