Unfortunately the elevator was unable to be accessed from the street level. It operated between the first and second level and was repaired by Monday. The house was lovely. Pool and grounds were great. Hilton Head is a lovely place. Rented bikes and enjoyed riding on the trails and beach. Beach was better than I expected. Was expecting a traffic jam as we got closer to Hilton Head. It never happened. Traffic flowed very well.

This was our favorite house we've rented on HHI for vacation. There was plenty of space for our large extended family. It was well furnished and comfortable. Only a short walk from the beach - we could even see the ocean from the top deck. Great memories were made!

The Roadrunner 2 is a great place to stay if you are looking for a place to hold a medium size group - up to 12 people. The rooms are tastefully decorated, especially the master suits with their own private bathrooms. The kitchen opens into the living spaces and outside dinning on the balcony. The bedrooms also open up to the large second floor balconys. The balconies have very nice and comfortable wicker furniture. We enjoyed a lot of time out there. The pool and spa area is also ery nice. My only suggestion is that if you plan on vacationing in the spring as we did that you pay the extra $800 and have the pool and spa heated. We considered this price to be a little high considering what we paid to rent the place so we did not do this. Other than that the place is absolutely gorgeous and served our needs quite well. I would also mention that there is an indoor outdoor speaker set up that allows you to play music everywhere. We used this quite a bit too. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with cooking supplies and we did bring a few things that I thought might not be there. All in all we had a great time in this house!
