“Great Value right on the beach Unit 431”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is my second straight year renting this particular unit. I visit the island several times a year and this is a GREAT location for direct access to the beach. Since our last visit a year ago, the owners have upgraded the kitchen with a new washer/dryer, cabinets, appliances and counter tops. Very nice and fresh! I believe I rated this unit average last year and now give it very good with the upgrades.

Bathrooms and bedrooms could still use updating. Typical items wearing out, beginning to rust, etc. but the owners do keep the place in working order and it's comfortable.

Beach is right at your doorstep. GREAT pool - very clean - bathrooms near pool area.

This unit is a great value on Hilton Head Island if you know what to expect. I always rent through Seashore Vacation Rentals - great service!

Room Tip: This unit is in the middle building that sits back from the beach and the pool is in front. Great v...

Our family just spent a wonderful week in Hilton Head South Carolina.

We rented a villa at Shorewoods which was on the beach. The address is 21 South Forest Beach Road, we stayed in unit 239 which could accomate 6 people. It was a Chic newly refurbished and decorated villa. With 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen with a counter bar and 2 stools, dinning room, living room which has a double bed if needed (we didn`t need to use it). and a separate area with a washer and dryer.

The swimming pool was just a short walk along a path around the corner or our unit. The beach is just behind the pool a few minutes walk along a boardwalk to the beach. The beach had a lifeguard everyday. This was a gated property so you just use a security key code to open the gate. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who choices to go to Hilton Head FOR A BEACH VACATION. IT is very safe for young children, my grandchildren are 3 and 5 years old.

We rented bicycles from Billy Bicycle Rental very reasonable. The rental was $110.00, for 3 adults, 2 children for 3 days. You can bike along the many marked trails in the area. We went to Shelter Cove Tueasday night, for a family and childrens evening and firewoorks. Another day we drove over to Sea Pines Nature Park to walk the trails, see the sights and Harbour Tower the park pass for the day was $5.00.

Colginy Circle and Colginy Plaza is just a short walk from the villa. The plaza has many restaurants, a Piggy Wiggly grocery store, a few ice cream shops and many shops and stores for souvenires. The kids love eating at the Frosty Frog restaurant. Their is also a Java Joes for a great coffee. We rented this villa on this website www.vbro.com

Awesome! The only thing missing was a place to grill. We had the best time! Rooms were spacious, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The view was of ocean, courtyard, and sparkling pool. Great breezes made sitting outside an evening regular. Covered balcony was nice as well.

We stayed in 206 and it had a great kitchen and baths. It seemed a little dirty, found Cheerios and tags on floor when we arrived. Also small blood stain on master comforter. The zero entry pool was fantastic for our four kids! The access to the beach was gated and the grounds were clean and well kept.

Spent a week at this oceanfront condo which was very nice. Great view, close to the pool and short walk to Coligny Square. Condo was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was dated but acceptable. Hilton Head Rentals & Sales were a very good company to deal with.

In line with others here I can't fault the location - great pool, code access gate to the beach directly and Coligny Plaza within walking distance along with the Tiki Hut beach bar, music and beach volleyball, all steps away.

Unit 201 where we stayed wasa disappointing; we needed a 3-bed villa at relatively short notice and this was one of only 2 or 3 available. On arrival at 5.30 pm it was obvious that the unit had not been updated which I guess is excusable but a lot of the furniture (lazyboy, balcony furniture etc) was unusable as it was either terminally broken and/or filthy. The balcony access doors were so bad that they barely opened and the vacuum cleaner did not work.

Credit to Seashore Vacations who stopped by that evening and returned with a replacement vacuum cleaner and who made an effort to clean the filthy balcony. After the lady had left we set about cleaning the balcony properly and eventually, an hour or two later, the balcony doors were opening with one finger. Basically the floor level runners were so thick with dead bugs, tree leaves and general rubbish they would not move so we had to dig it all out and pour washing up liquid/grease buster on them.

The windows have vertical plastic blinds which are on their last legs and - horror - our 'view of the pool' was actually a view of scaffolding on which we never saw anyone working all the week we were there. Again credit Seashore Vacations who managed to negotiate a 15% discount and of course after some hard work cleaning all was acceptable. However this is an old and very dated unit (for sale @ $799,000!!!!!) in bad need of a complete overhaul.

Others we saw were delightful and the area and the Island are both great. Go but be careful which unit you choose.

Room Tip: Look carefully at photos and reviews and get an updated unit with a ocean view.

Pay attention to the good reviews of Shorewood and try to get those villas! Stayed at Shorewood for 4 nights in late July. We requested a clean, updated villa and were assigned to the exact opposite of what we requested in Villa 310. It was oceanfront as we requested - but the carpeting was filthy, twin mattresses in second bedroom were filled with what felt like straw, light bulbs did not work (we bought our own and took them with us when we left), garbage disposal did not work, we found used coffee grounds in the coffee maker, someone had left potato salad in the fridge, and there was a mountain of ice in the ice maker. Won't even tell you what we found in one of the night stand drawers! Clearly this is partly a housekeeping issue, but the owners of this unit need a wake-iup call for sure. This looks like someone bought the villa with furnishings about 25 years ago and has never returned. We requested a $200 refund from the rental company and we received it within 4 hours of our request. Should have asked for $400.
Only reason I'm giving Shorewood as a whole a "3 star" is for it's location to the beach and Coligny shopping area, which is within walking distance.
