We had the best vacation at this house ever! The accommodations were outstanding along with the best service when anything went wrong. The beach views were awesome - beautiful surises and sunsets could be experieced from any of the 3 balconies. We've been to Hilton Head for over 20 years and this house was, by far, the best place we've ever stayed!

This was a spectacular place! The rooms were beautifully decorated, very comfortable, spacious and equipped with all the latest technology. The 2 kitchens, the large bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms make this the most comfortable housing we've ever experienced. The access to the beach, the views from the balcony(s) and the pool-side lounging make this an astonishing unforgettable place. We've been at the "Sandbar" 3 times now and can't imagine going any other place!

This is a fantastic location where you can walk right to the beach, but the home is so nice that you don't want to leave. Beautiful kitchen and baths make it perfect for large groups where you can all hang out together or find privacy when you want.

We just got back from our vacation at this amazing house. We had 20 people and never felt like we were on top of each other. The 2nd family room was the teenagers favorite hang out with it's beds and couches and chairs and big screen tv, they had everything they could want including the 2nd kitchen. The kitchen/living room area was enormous with enough seating for all of us. It was one of the best stocked kitchens I have seen on vacation. The pool area also was perfect with an excess of lounge chairs and a comfortable seating area where we enjoyed appetizers every night while the kids swam. I loved that there was sand in this area to occupy the 2-4 year old with sandcastles so we could relax.Coligny Plaza was just down the road so the kids spent a lot of days riding their bikes down there to shop. Great restaurants down there as well. The owners and caretaker were extremely helpful and easy to work with. I can't recommend this home enough.

Recently stayed at the Sandbar and had a great trip. The house was beautiful, as advertised, and in a great location. There was more than enough room for our group of 18 and the amenities significantly exceeded our expectations. Most of the girls stayed by the great pool and beach, while the men had a great time golfing. Lance (the caretaker of the home) was more than helpful and got the guys tee times at the private course, "The Golf Club,” where he is the pro. Definitely recommend! ~~ Casey

I stayed here in 2009 with around 13 people and I can happily say it was the perfect hilton head vacation. This is a gorgeous house, well located, with something for everyone.
Inside, the house has the feel of a beach house with the amenities and cleanliness of a five-star penthouse. 3 stories with multiple "master" bedrooms made sure there was plenty of room for everyone. The two kitchen/living room areas and balconies overlooking the beach on every floor were also fantastic.
Outside, where most of your time is undoubtedly spent, a sun-swept pool area gives way to an uncrowded beach for some R&R.; While the house's location in proximity to Coligny circle, various Golf courses, restaurants, ext. makes it a great home-base for all the activities you (or your kids) can think of on HH.
Definitely would recommend to another family (or anyone) looking for a stress free HHI vacation.
