Our 3 families stayed at 1 Gadwall the end of June 2012 and had a beautiful week. The house was in super condition and we were very happy we saved $4k for the 3rd row and the first row did not have a view and the walk to the beach was the same distance. The maintenance company addressed the small few concerns we told them about and we would not think twice about renting at 1 Gadwall again.

We enjoyed the house but the pool area had drain problems, was infested with ants. The air condtioning went out mid week and it was a day before it came back to norm. The flatscreen in the living area was out, luckily, one of our guys is a whiz at such and fixed it.

Perfect Home for a perfect getaway! Easy walk to the ocean, which we did daily. Spent 4 days with our adult children and spouses. Had the luxury of our own bedrooms with baths, along with a nice sized common gathering area in the living room, dining room & kitchen. Would come back in a minute. Location was great because of the walking distance to small shops and eateries. Loved the Hilton Head golfing!

This is our 7th year w/ Beach Properties and 1st year at 1 Gadwall. The layout of the home was great for our extended family and grandkids; 3 Masters very comfortable and the upstairs rooms worked well for daughter's family with 2 young kids.

Check in was easy as the keys, Sea Pine's pass and island information was mailed to our home address. The house was a perfect location. It was a five minute walk to South Beach Marina and there was beach access located directly behind the pool area with just a short walk to the beach. Though the house is perfect for kids and multiple families, the thing we liked the best was the location.

Did not feel for the price that the home was worth it.
Pool area had poor furnature, for what was there.
Bedroom were not nice at all. Had to go thru closet to get
to bathroom,the other bath room had a laundrey tub as a
sink out side the room. Will not return.

Great location. Walking distance to Salty Dog or the salty ocean. Small backyard with min. barbecue equipment. Lighting in backyard needs to be increased. Needed bigger TV's in bedrooms.Pricey for today's economy.
Thank you for submitting your comments about your recent stay with Beach Properties.
Unfortunately because the back yard is fenced in there is no way to create extra space but we have asked the owner to provide a gas barbecue grill for their guests. As for the lighting, we will make sure that every spot light in the back is functioning.
The owner has also upgraded her TV's to flat screens!
Thank you for choosing Beach Properties and we hope to see you back in the future.

"Fantastic family reunion haven at 1 Gadwall"

We have stayed at this property two years in a row. The functionality of the bedrooms and communal spaces fit our group to a "T". The kitchen is fairly well stocked with a variety of cooking implements and appliances. The pool is a great addition, and the walk to the shoreline is shady and pleasant. The relatively short distance to the local restaurants and shops is very convenient and more than makes up for the fact that this property is so far from the Sea Pines gate. The homeowner sent a thank-you care package both years, which was a nice and unexpected touch. The staff at Beach Properties is attentive, and also sent my parents-in-law a 50th wedding anniversary gift basket, very much appreciated and unexpected. The rental process, check-in and check-out is very convenient.
I would say that it is likely we will try to rent this home again this coming summer. However, I would also have to say that the 2nd time we were there, the cleanliness had deteriorated somewhat (the area rugs were no longer very clean, counter surfaces needed additional attention as well.) We just dealt with it ourselves.
