From the pool right off the patio, to the short walk to the beach, this gem of a condo was quite the find and we will definitely be coming back! It was clean, tons of extras from beach bags and beach towels to boogie boards and beach carts! Its family friendly and close to everything from shopping to food and entertainment. We can't wait to come back!
My wife and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed our five nights. We are regular visitors to HHI and Belle Serene was one of finest places that we have rented.
The kitchen was modern, clean and all in working order. The beds were large and comfy and we slept like logs. The whole place was exquisitely decorated, especially the wide wooden staircase as you walk in. For the short 5minute walk to the beach, there was a WORKING pushcart and chairs - which we used every day. Access to the large quiet pool is only steps from the patio doors.
The whole complex is extremely well maintained with gardeners sweeping up and trimming the surrounding yard every morning.
My only criticism would be that having full cable TV would be preferable to the Apple TV. We couldn't watch Fox or TBS or NBC sports without the homeowner account details.
I would definitely recommend this Holiday Rental. Whitney, the owner, is one of the nicest people I've rented from and could not do any more for us. We arrived just after hurricane Irma but Whitney kept in constant contact and we had no concerns with our booking at all.
Tip: Beware of booking on TripAdvisor though. I booked this and my current rental in St Augustine using their service and they put on a massive hidden booking fee of $150-$170. I appreciate that Tripadvisor should charge something for using their website but my problem is that it is all hidden. The landlord gets one invoice stating one price being charged to the customer; but the tenant's invoice shows a completely different and much higher price - which was the amount ACTUALLY charged. Not very open, honest and transparent in my opinion.
We were completely happy with this condo rental. We used airbnb to rent. The host was very easy to communicate with. We had a small issue when we arrived which wasn't really her issue, it was with the condo next door and the issue was resolved in a timely manner. Short 4-5 minutes walk to the beach. Condo had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again!
Had a "parents getaway" with another couple and absolutely loved this condo. Whitney was great and explained everything that we needed. She was very accommodating as well as the condo. Fully finished, with games pots and pans, everything that you needed. Beach is only a couple minutes walking distance. It was a great stay and will for sure be back! Thank you!
We loved our time at belle sirene!! The location was perfect with a pool right outside our patio door and the beach was only a 3-5 minute walk. The condo is in great condition and has everything we needed. We stayed there with our three young children and it was enough room for all of us. Highly recommend!!!' We will definitely stay there next time we go!
This is my SECOND stay at this unit. I LOVE IT! (See my previous review!) It is a FAB condo, filled with all the 'niceties' of home & is beautifully decorated + expertly appointed (without feeling stuffy).
But, what I REALLY love is how simple renting this place is. Instant book online, then house rules and Hilton Head beach guidelines are sent prior to rental, as is the keyless entry code (no trying to find an obscure office & waiting in a queue to collect keys). So easy!
This time the check-OUT list was even sent BEFORE check-IN so we knew exactly what we had to do later on (instead of fishing through a load of paperwork from the rental company...that most likely had been lost during our stay).
Another thing that really stands out to me about this property is the excellent level of communication with the host. The PERSONAL TOUCH is invaluable, in my opinion. We downloaded an app on our phone & 'talked' free to her realtime even though she was traveling. She always made time. Whitney, the owner, is always helpful & goes out of her way to make us feel welcome & taken care of. The last time we asked LOADS of questions and she was more than happy to give here experienced opinion & make recommendations. This trip we didn't want as much guidance, but did need some help with our transport to the airport, which she was a huge help in sorting out.
This time around there were some new additions like the "ALEXA" which we used to play jazz almost everyday & asked about the weather too! There is a new DVD player and the place looks to have had a fresh coat of paint & new sheets!
My first stay was fantastic & this one surpassed it! Belle Sirene (the beautiful mermaid) has proven herself to be a 'keeper'! No need for me to look anywhere else.
Looking for the perfect location in hilton head beach , you found it. Only a quick walk to a gorgeous beach. Great for families or couples looking to get away with all the comforts of home. The condo was turnkey with wonderful amenities and close to shopping and activities. We'll definitely visit again in near future!
