“Peace and Quiet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We have stayed at many places in our 19 years of visiting HH and there are some that are more updated and larger but-----Have you ever had that feeling of "being at home"and missing it when you leave? That was our feeling of this oldie but goodie on returning home. Small,Homey,Great People. We will return.

I don't think there is anywhere on Hilton Head where you can get a spacious 3-bedroom condo with ALL the amenities for the prices offered here. The rooms are spread apart, so the kids can be quite rowdy in one room, and the adults can have a peaceful, relaxing time in the main room. The complex offers bike rentals, tennis courts, big fun pool area, a play-scape, ponds to feed ducks & turtles, 3 private walkways to the beach, in-room wifi, super-friendly staff.
Each year, the condos are improved and modernized and are very nice.
I just love it here.

Room Tip: I alway stay in a beach-front room. It is a must to have the ocean view (& the sound of waves).

Seawatch is not the only building you can stay in at the Island Club. Seawatch is a time-share building, but there are several other options available, from one-bedroom units to three-bedroom units. We have been vacationing at the Island Club for over 30 years, and we still think it is the best place to stay on Hilton Head - as long as you don't need to stay right ON the golf course. Island Club is located right on the best beach on the island, Folly Field Beach, so if you want to stroll out the door of your condo and down the short boardwalk, you will have 12 miles of pristine beach waiting for you. There are also three pools and a large spa on the property, along with a fitness center and multiple tennis courts.

In recent years we have stayed at Seawatch, Neptune and in a one-bedroom unit across from the pools (I don't recall the name of the building). Each time we appreciated the convenience of Island Club to shopping, dining, golf and recreational activities, but mostly we love the great beach! Located around mid-Island, Island Club is down the beach from The Westin, but you don't have the tourist traffic you would at Sea Pines or one of the other plantations. Rent a bike and ride all over the island, if you like, on a well-developed system of bike paths. Or ride down the beach!

Room Tip: I book through VRBO.com and have never been disappointed in the accommodations.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful units, great location, great views. Friendly staff and many free amenities. Heated pool with waterfall and hot tub are wonderful. Our kitchen had granite counters. We want to come back again.

We stayed a week at Seawatch in Building 7 on an end unit on the third floor. The unit was well maintained and had an updated kitchen with all the amentities including a full washing machine and dryer. Our unit had a full dining room area with a living room and huge TV. Beyond that was a huge deck that overlook the ponds on the property. There were two huge bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with two twin beds. The couch does convert over to a queen bed as well. There are two spacious bathrooms with tub/shower combos. One of the best things being on Hilton Head is that full beach access is like a minute walk from our condo unit. It was great not having to pack up and head to the beach like we had in the past. Also, the hotel has a really nice pool, kiddle pool and sunbathing/jacuzzi area. Nice for everyone! They also have plenty of tennis courts for use, bike rentals really cheap, a basketball court and many activies for the kids to join in. The staff was excellent but remember that they do not have daily maid service so you will have to spend some time cleaning up after yourselves. The only negative thing about the Club is that parking gets tight at Seawatch. Overall, a wonderful vacation spot for the family and we will look to see if we can get a unit there again when we return next year!

Room Tip: All rooms somewhat face beach....and everything is close so there is really not a bad room at Seawat...

My family have vacationed in Hilton Head Island for many years but this is the first time we rented a condo at The Island Club. We stayed in #3203 on the second floor with an ocean view in the Atlantis building. There were five of us in a two room two bathroom condo. The floor plan of the condo was such that we had lots of room to layout without "climbing on top of each other". The decor was modern and the walls were painted a sky blue. There is a washer/dryer combo in the condo which was a nice feature. The kitchen is well equipped. The owners kept the hallway closet stocked with sand toys, boogie boards and beach chairs.The balcony had chairs and tables to enjoy the view with a cup of coffee. I liked the fact the master bedroom has a door to the balcony.

Found out the complex is 35 years old. However the owners have invested in upkeep and bringing the complex up to date. The grounds were well kept. The playground equipment is up to date. There are stainless steel Weber gas grills scattered around the complex with picnic tables to sit down and eat outside. There are regular grills also for those who prefer to use charcoal. The lagoon is a nice addition. The pool complex consists of a kiddie pool with a mushroom water feature, whirlpool hot tub, main pool with a fountain and a shallow pool with tanning chairs. The clubhouse contains a small gym which is well maintained, a dry sauna and the tennis pro shop.

The large open space between the oceanside buildings was filled with families with teenagers and young children playing in the evening; inspiring to watch. One feature I like is the sun deck behind the dunes which had lounge chairs to enjoy a tan during the day or watch the stars at night. Throughly enjoy our week and will be back.

We stayed in seawatch building 7 on the fifth floor. Everything was perfect. The condo was set up so that you would be able to live in it full time. No wait time for anything. I would love to be able to afford to live there. Beach and ocean were the best. I have no complaints about anything. Everything was exceptional.
