“Watch your personal property”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Fiddlers Cove is not safe. I had my bike stollen and when I went to security they told me the cameras were not working. Be careful of your property it is not a true gated community. The guest can be load, the security guard does not have access to working cameras. The rental property owners will not return calls nor will the property manager also the Vacation Travel Club (VTC) I booked through was not willing to help. The local police also were of no use a report was filed. Stay away from Fiddler's Cove.

We stayed at Fiddlers Cove in June, 2013. When we checked in we were told it is a safe gated community with cameras on the property, we found out that it is not the case. One of our bikes was stollen we found out the security cameras were not working and the guard at the front gate was not at there station. The owner of the resort did not return phone calls and the Vacation Travel Club (VTC) that booked us this property wouldn't help to resolve the issue. Enjoyed Hilton Heaed but will not go back to Fiddlers Cove.

We stayed here a few days with my daughter and her family for a few days. The pools were clean and tennis courts in good repair although I did not play. The complex is gated and seemed to be very secure. All cars that I observed had parking permits inside and were checked by security. There are lots of trees and plenty of shaded parking. The units are older but many have been refurbished and the complex as a whole is in good shape. Walkways to cross the street to go to the beach are locked with a push code system. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others looking for a quiet easy going complex at the beach.

I would definitely stay here again! We had a two bedroom condo! Very nice and spacious! Short walk to the beach. Two swimming pools! We loved it and plan to go again in September! Nice neighborhood to go for a walk or ride bicycle and very peaceful and quite. It's located right beside a golf course and we could see the course out our windows. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location on the island.

Stayed September 2012

we stayed at fiddlers cove on our recent vacation to hilton head south carolina and it was wonderful. the pool/hot tub was just a short walk from our door and the beach was just across the street and over some sand dunes. we stayed at a condo found on VRBO - http://www.vrbo.com/323625. it was so beautiful, it was like i was staying at a friends house. it wasn't sterile like a hotel room or decorated in a cheap 1970's style. it had such cozy touches all around the place, i immediately unpacked and relaxed! i know, that's what you're supposed to do, but i usually live out of a suitcase. i felt at such ease i just wanted to slide onto that comfy couch, toss the throw over me and get out my book for a little while (which is exactly what i did!). they have all the information you will need for your stay here as well, restaurant books, things to do, etc. and the location is great, whichever way you drive you will find restaurants and adventures. i highly recommend this condo, i'll be going back again.

Well we loved everything about FC..Very clean pretty grounds, great security and our villa was awesome...Upgraded and clean. 2 large bedrooms with both on suite bathroom. Great little kitcIthen..all thgough the unit wasn't huge it was perfect and clean...Also FC is very close to the beach, maybe a 5 minute walk if that down a little lane..All of HH is great and easy to get around..We rented bikes and thats all we did to get around all week. The only thing is there are no lights on the paths at night so we got a headlamp,,lol and that didn't stop us. Lots of traffic most of the time but wasnt a problem since we were on bikes all the time. For the value I beleive FC is one of the best if you are travelling on a budget u can rent a 2 bedroom for between 600 and 800 in summer peak season when we went at the end of July. We were in a villa right near one of the pools and it was awesome..we often sat out on the balcony at night and relaxed immenslly.

I stayed at Fiddlers Cove recently on a trip to Hilton Head with my family. It was super easy to reserve a room. We had great communication with the condo owner! She answered all of our questions before we left on our trip, and she set up everything in advance! Fiddlers Cove is gated so it should be a safe place to stay. I did hear some guys outside about 1:30 or 2:00 am but they quickly went inside their condo building. I also had a guy outside my window about 8:00 am fixing a phone line, but he quickly did his work and we didn't see him again. These are just small things that can happen anywhere you stay. Fiddlers Cove does have 2 pools, a hot tub, tennis courts, and access to the beach. However, you are not on the beach...you have to walk 5-10 mins to get there, or you can drive down the road to park next to the beach boardwalk. The location of the condo was near Carrabba's and shopping, however, it is away from the Caligny and Harbour Town so you don't get the busy tourists around your condo. If possible, you might want to get a room on the first floor. We were able to rent a condo on the first floor and that kept us from having to take luggage upstairs. The downside is that you can hear people up above you walking around sometimes...or at least we could. Overall, it is a nice place to stay. We really enjoyed having 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a living area to stretch out! Of course you can also cook in the kitchen and keep foods cold in the fridge. We also thought the beds were comfy, and it was nice to not have to worry about housekeeping or a maid coming early in the morning. We could sleep in if we wanted to and take our time getting ready for the day. It also was cheaper than most of the hotels in the area. So why not rent a condo if you get more for the money?
