The staff at Beach Properties called several times to check on us during the visit. My family, young and old, enjoyed the property. It was great to have upstairs adult area and downstairs kids area. The kids actually loved the pool. Although the house is second row, its location was right next to beach path. The short walk took 2 minutes, if that. We actually could hear the ocean at night. The screened in porch was loved by "us true southerners". We used it as a secondary living area for meals, phone chats, naps and overall catching up. /tge
The refrigerator and freezer were not working properly. I have a large extended family that gathers regularly on the weekends. Non-commercial grade refrigerators have been handling our size family on this trip. I know it is an expense, but the refrigerator needs to be replaced. A repair person came in on Friday. I don't think his repair did the trick. We had to by ice for cool drinks several times during our stay and had to throw away items for fear of getting sick from the improper food temperatures (the ice cream never froze). Although everyone liked the amenties, two of the bathrooms on the bottom floor were very tight. The attached closet helped the bath in the twin bed room. The main living area is on the second floor and bedrooms on the bottom floor, so ranch dwellers be prepared for some exercise on the stairs.
Beautiful home and very convenient to the beach!

This was a great house for a family vacation. Super convenient to the beach.

In general the home was as pictured.
Our complaint involves cleanliness. 2 days into our trip, a pair of boy's Speedo swim trunks were found in the bed our daughter was using. Apparently, the bedding was not removed and cleaned prior to our arrival. Read more

Wonderfullly relaxing vacation

Great house, great location, great weather, just wish pool got more sunlight ( could cut back large tree next to pool). Thought house was well worth the price. Would rent again.
A good value

5 Long Boat is a very nice place to stay with a big family. There are 4 bedrooms, and a den that has a fold out couch and doors that can easily be used as a 5th bedroom. The pool and hot tub are decent, but nothing fancy. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and is only a few steps to the beach located right on a public access path.
The kitchen was nice, but the appliances were not the best quality or best maintained. The refrigerator took a long time to cool, and the vent hood over the range appeared to be working poorly. Those issues aside, the kitchen provided ample space to make large meals. The gas grill was also very good, and located on a deck right off of the kitchen. The dining table seats 8!
The master suite was large and lovely with a huge bathroom. The other bedrooms each had a bathroom located en-suite, although they were not very large.
The driveway can get cramped with more than 3 cars parked in it.
This is my second time staying with Beach Properties of Hilton Head. Both times have been excellent, good value, and little hassle.
Terrific house with a great location.

Really enjoyed the house and the location was great. Cost to heat the pool was excessive. Bedding could have been cleaner.
Great house and awesome location

We loved the house and the location. Would stay here again! Very minor things that we found all dealing with the audio visual. The main tv keep blacking out half the picture. Plasma may be going bad. No Espn! This drove my husband and son crazy.

Great Vacation Home!!!!!!

The service was amazing, we had no problems. The home was great it had everything we needed for our vacation. The location was only steps to the beach you could see a glimpse of the ocean from the home. You could hear the ocean. It was everything we wanted. The best thing about this home was the location and the size what a great value, the least that I liked was the pool could have been bigger but it was fine for our needs. I would rent this home again. Love it!!!!!
The house and area are lovely.

This was my first trip to Hilton Head after the death of my husband last year. It was still the beautiful, restful place we had come to enjoy for years. The house is lovely and affords privacy on every floor with en'suite's in all bedrooms. It is a little difficult to carry groceries up to the top floor (being 63 years old limits some of that old energy)but once one is settled in, the house and location are great.
