“Wonderful ocean front condo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stayed at Sea Crest building 2 during July. Great place to stay! We booked through Beach-Properties and they were great to work with. The condo was very nice, perfect location and nice pools. The beach is just steps away and very clean and not too crowded. I would recommend this resort to families. Excellent place to stay!

First time at Hilton Head and Sea Crest. This property is large enough to offer all the amenities you could want (2 outdoor pools, outdoor hot tub, small indoor pool, indoor hot tub), but small enough that these amenities are not overcrowded. The property is beautiful and well-maintained (pool maintenance daily and saw many groundskeepers working throughout the week). The property offers easy access to the beach, as well as a poolside restaurant and bar. There is an attendant at one of the pools to ensure you are a guest of the property upon entering and I did not notice any issues at all with people entering the pools, etc. from public beach access. Coligny Square is located right across the street and you could truly stay the entire week without getting in your vehicle for groceries (Piggly Wiggly), dining (Skillets, Frosty Frog, Market Street Cafe, etc.), or other shops. We had a corner, oceanfront condo and it offered a spectacular panoramic view of the ocean. The condo was a little dated (don't expect 2011 or 2012 style updates since it was built in 1999), but was well-maintained and everything worked great. We will definitely be visiting Hilton Head and staying at the Sea Crest for years to come.

Room Tip: Try to go for a corner unit.

We have stayed at Sea Crest for 3 years in a row. The property is well-maintained, clean, and convenient to food and shopping. There are 2 pools on the property, plus a beautiful garden. Coligny Plaza is right next door with many places to eat and shop. We rented through Vacation Company and have been very pleased with their service.

Room Tip: This year we rented Room 3405, which is a 3 BR, 3 bath ocean front villa. It is a corner unit with w...

Great location - but pool is less than one block from the public beach access. No security (no sign in required, no wrist bands to signify you belong) on site management is non-existant. One distant gate has a code required to access, but anyone can walk in from the street or from the beach with out a code at other entry points. We had a beach bag with a kindle, flip flops, eye glasses, condo keys, toys etc stolen right from our chairs at this pool last week when we went for a walk on the beach. Calls to 'emergency' numbers went no where with minimal folow-up or concern. Surveillance cameras evidently aren't used and provide no value or deterrent. Local shop manager warned us that thefts in this area were increasing. If you stay here, guard your stuff.

We were able to book a Sea Crest Villa at the last minute, (directly through the resort) and got a very good deal for a 2 1/2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa. We overlooked the pool and the ocean was 1/2 block from the unit. The villa was very clean, well equipped and right across the street from the Coligny Plaza - with restaurants, grocery and liquor shopping all in the plaza.
There are 2 Sea Crest condo facilities - which was not really apparent on the web site - and we were in the older, not on the beach condo. However, we did have access to the deck and chairs, at the new Sea Crest villas, which overlook the ocean and the beach.

We used the hot tub and the heated salt water pool every day outside our villa, which was great. For a family vacation (in November), the price and the access to facilities, made it both pleasant and a good value vacation.

Perfect location for shopping and enjoying the beautiful beaches in Hilton Head. We stayed in unit 2408 which we booked through Resort Quest. Room was very clean and spacious. The two pools were always full but there was never an issue of having a lounge chair. The pool bar was great for grabbing a drink. My two young girls loved looking for turtles and frogs in the fountain area. Great vacation.

We stayed at Sea Crest Villas in late June during a family vacation in Hilton Head. The first thing you'll notice is there are 3-4 numerical codes that everyone needs to memorize (garage code, pool bathroom code, villa code, etc.) which is a bit of a pain. If you're arriving on a Saturday afternoon, be prepared for chaos as there are dozens of other families trying to unload their luggage and beach gear, and the elevators are very slow and luggage carts are limited.

The property is actually pretty nice. Both pools were well-maintained and our 2-BR villa was an ideal size for our family. All of the rooms have free WiFi. The beach is very wide here, particularly at low tide (probably 150 yards wide). It is quite crowded here because it's close to Coligny public beach access, but it's you'll still have space to toss a football.

Shopping, etc. is directly across the street (Coligny Plaza) and this is quite convenient. Many visitors choose to rent bikes for the week and get around that way vs. driving. Many actually ride their bikes on the beach, which has flat, hard-packed sand near the shoreline. Fun activities during the summer include fireworks at Shelter Cove, seeing Gregg Russell at Harbour Town (a MUST DO if you have small children!), and golfing.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend Sea Crest to other families visiting Hilton Head Island.
