We were very impressed with the significant improvements made to both bathrooms since last year. These areas were updated with new flooring, lighting, countertops, and fresh paint. They were very much needed. Upstairs, the large hot tub has been removed ( we never used it at all in 7 years ), and a huge shower enclosure now dominates that end... More

It began as a summer vacation spot for us but has now evolved nearly 40 years later to a family reunion spot. My parents still own 2 weeks and my 5 sisters and... More

Let me start off by saying that we own here and have owned here since before Swallowtail, inside SeaPines, on Hilton Head, was even built. Way back to the 70's. That was even before Marriott got into TimeShare. About 50% of the original owners from back then still own their units and most of the owners use their weeks every... More

Its seems like the place hasn't been updated since 1978. Paper thin walls, serviceable kitchen, barely average bathrooms, and the smell of "wet-dog" in the air...all with a Brady Bunch decor. I think a Best Western may have more modern decor. The Management really needs to update the place! The best thing about this place is the location - great... More

The a/c could not keep up with upstairs unless we kept all curtains closed. Mold was easy to spot in the air vents. We had a horrendous problem with fruit flies all week.

Once you finally find it--- it's a gem. Unit 2883 It is roomy, very clean. Our furniture in unit very comfortable, even the mattress. Cabinets in baths and bedroom dated but plenty of space. Huge master bath, closet. More lighting in bedrooms would be good. Separate sitting room. Big eqipped kichen.Heated outdoor pool. Washer and dryer in unit.
