Reviews

Guest:  Elizabeth N.

Our family had the pleasure of staying at 8 Black Skimmer Road 7/24/21-7/31/21. We have spent 10+ years renting homes in Sea Pines and found this rental home to be exceptional. There were 12 of us...kids and adults. Plenty of room. Each bedroom an ensuite. Immaculate condition. Easy floor plan. The kitchen was VERY well equipped and had everything we needed. We all enjoyed the pool! 4 minute walk to the beach. We rented bikes for the week...super easy to get to the bike paths. Excellent location. We highly recommend 8 Black Skimmer. We would definitely stay again. 10 out of 10.

This was a beautiful home with a brand new pool. We had our three children w/spouses and 8 grandkids and the house was perfect. The walk to the beach is easy for little children and no streets to cross. The beaches are clean and spacious. And the water was delightfully warm. And so was the pool! The only hiccup was on arrival at 4 the house was not ready as a cleaning crew had failed to show up on time. Other than that the people at Destination Vacation were great and let us use the pool while the house crew finished up. It was a great stay.

Manager's Note:  Thank you for staying with us and taking time to share your experience!  Housekeeping has been a challenge with worker shortages but we really appreciate your patience with the initial delay.

The location and house were fantastic. We loved the new pool and hot tub and being so close to the beach. The house was very comfortable, had plenty of space and was well stocked - the only thing we couldn't find was a tea kettle...but a pot did the trick. When we called about the hot tub not heating up someone was there very quickly, which we appreciated. It didn't resolve the issue, but the next day someone came as soon as we called again and realized it was programmed to not heat beyond 86 degrees....he fixed the issue....so yes, the service was great. I would say that the only negative was that if you wanted to eat outside by the pool there was no easy access to the backyard. You had to bring food from the kitchen, through the living room, down the stairs, through the lower level and out the screened in porch. But the house was really great for us and I would definitely recommend it. We had a fantastic time....very relaxing! Thanks for your assistance.

8 Black Skimmer was wonderful! The accommodations were perfect for our large family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The weather could not have been more perfect. My only recommendation would be to change the queen bed in the upstairs master bedroom to a king. As always, everyone at Destination Vacation does an outstanding job taking care of us! Thanks so much!

We were very happy with the services provided by the team at Destination Vacations. Very responsive and helpful. The house we rented (8 Black Skimmer) was perfect for our multi-family vacation. Everyone had their own bathroom and plenty of space to stretch out. The location was fabulous - very short walk to the beach, but also close to the main biking trails that could go any direction and a short ride to South Beach Marina. There were plenty of kitchenware and utensils as well for our large group. Only small area of improvement was for bedding - the beds were pretty firm, and maybe some additional sleeping pillows. However, these were not show-stoppers by any means, and realize these are both preferences, and not necessarily something for all. We are already talking about looking into staying again for our next trip to HHI! Thank you very much for facilitating wonderful memories with our family.

This was our 2nd year at 8 Black Skimmer. The house is perfect for our family and is the most well stocked house we have rented. The one suggestion I would pass on to the owners is that there are no blinds on the west facing windows. The lack of blinds lets the sun beat in all afternoon and the ac can't keep up. The temp often reached 83 and took until around midnight to get back down to 72. We also did not get in the home until about 5:30 but very understandable with COVID situation. Thanks for another great week on HHI.

The house was beautiful. You can tell the owners care for the house with great detail. It was warm and inviting. It was stocked with everything needed for our stay. Games, extra blankets, pillows, and fans. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the relaxing moments by the pool. Not wanting to leave, you can expect our return year after year.

We loved this house! Fit our extended family very well. Just a heads up, the unit has 2 blenders. One doesn't work and the other one leaks. This was a very minor problem, otherwise we would have called.

*Management Note:  Both blenders have been replaced with new blenders.  Thank you for bringing these items to our attention!

We were very impressed with our accomodations! The website didnt even do it justice! We loved the proximity to the beach and to the bike paths. The house was so clean when we arrived! And it was well stocked! We will definitely try to book it again next year!! We were impressed with the pool service and quick attention when we had something that needed fixed!

The house was fabulous. Because we have a many kids in our family group, we find it easier to eat in and share the cooking. The kitchen was equipped with every thing we could ever want. We had a toilet that was leaking and it was fixed quickly. Wonderful experience and we will recommend you to everyone going to Hilton Head.

Destination Vacation did a top-notch job from beginning to end of our vacation experience. Every question was answered timely and accommodated. The website gives an awesome first impression and lives up to every beautiful photo posted. The house we rented, 8 Black Skimmer, was the best vacation rental experience we've ever had, anywhere. The layout of the home, the stocked kitchen, the lighting, the cleanliness, the décor, the stocked kitchen, the grounds, the pool/spa, did I mention the stocked kitchen!...all were exceptional. We relaxed in every inch of that home and will definitely return. Destination Vacation will be first for our future rental needs on Hilton Head Island. Thank you for everything!
