Hilton Head Resort First Post

Hilton Head Resort is an oceanside villa complex on Hilton Head Island, SC. It's located at mile marker 7 on the ocean side of Highway 278 that runs down the middle of the island. On the north side of the property line is the Village at Singleton homes. On the south side of the property is Palmetto Dunes Plantation and the Robert Trent Jones golf course.

There are four buildings each with a different "theme". There are a total of 468 two and three bedroom units throughout the complex. All of the buildings are interconnected at the corners and you can walk from one to the next on the covered walkways. The buildings are four stories above ground with open space under buildings one & two and parking under buildings three & four. Parking is unassigned. There are four elevators throughout the complex and stairwells in every corner.

Building one has the big outdoor pool and the Island Grille and Deli. It's the closest building to the ocean.

Insider's tip - The Island Grille and Deli has takeout pizza and anything on the menu. Call and place your order for a quick and easy dinner. Let Mom off the hook. The deli also has inexpensive bike rentals. Rent for a few hours, a day or a whole week.

Building two has gardens, a sun deck and a badminton court. There are two racquetball courts under the sun deck but they are out of service at the present time.

Insider's Tip - The sun deck is a great place for a tan in the middle of winter. The building surrounds the sun deck and keeps the cool ocean breezes from hitting the sunbathers. You can get a tan in winter and fool your friends into thinking you went on an expensive caribbean vacation!

Building three is unique on the entire island! This building is completely enclosed with an indoor heated pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, sauna, fitness center, free wifi, porch swings and a 1/10th mile paved jogging track! Go here to escape the summer heat, cool winter days or rainy days all year round.

Insider's Tip - there is an inside stairwell from the 2nd floor to ground level. In winter, go to the 2nd floor and you won't have to go outside.

Building four has 4 beautiful lighted tennis courts in the center court and 2 additional lighted courts just outside the west side of the building. There is also an outdoor pool on the north east corner of the building.

Insider's Tip - Over 50 miles of paved public bike paths are right outside the front gate. Rent bikes and you can park your car and never get back in until it is time to go home!

How do you get to the beach?

Our two best amenities are waiting for you at our beach. An amazing, wide, uncrowded, sandy beach plus our Oceanfront Bar and Grill - Cocos on the Beach (http://www.cocosonthebeach.com/)

There is a boardwalk from the corner of building one that takes you straight out to one of the least crowded and best beaches on all of Hilton Head Island! It takes about 7 minutes to walk the 510 yard long boardwalk. If you don't want to walk, ride the frequent golf cart shuttle. The resort will give you a schedule when you arrive at the front gate. Cocos is at the shuttle drop off point at the end of the boardwalk. You'll find great food and drink, beach supplies, rest rooms and outside showers. You won't need to go back to the condo while spending your day at the beach!

Insider's Tip - Hilton Head Resort has a nearly private beach! Here's why: At our beach turn left and walk to the "Folly". This is a creek that runs through the marsh and under our boardwalk. At high tide the Folly is neck deep and the public beaches on the other side can not get across to our beach. Our beach will often be nearly deserted even on holidays while the public beaches on the other side of the Folly will be a sea of umbrellas and no empty sand! The closest public access to the south is in Coligny/Forest Beach about 3 miles away!

Hopefully this first post will help new visitors understand what a great beach getaway Hilton Head Resort can be for your whole family! And it is the most affordable 2 bedroom ocean side accommodations on the entire island, possibly even the entire east coast!

Come join us as vacationers and owners at Hilton Head Resort!
