Place very quaint! Up to date and for the most part clean. We has a couple incidences with cleaning up cobwebs and spiders in some of the rooms and squished a Palmetto Bug that scurried out from behind a picture frame. There were also some ants in the kitchen even though there was no food out. It was a nicely updated home and felt like home for the week. Beautiful decor and wonderfully stocked with any necessities a family would need.

We had a great time. When we encountered a problem the first day, even though it was a Sunday and the office was closed, the contact person called us back and took care of everything. The unit was clean and fresh and was perfect for our needs. The Shipyard location is perfect for easy access to anything on the island. Thank you so much.

Condo is beautiful and very homey! They truly thought of everything, and it was plenty of room for a family with 3 kids (including 2 teenagers!). Both bedrooms are large and comfortable, and with 3 tvs-no fighting! The fully stocked beach locker was a nice surprise, complete with chairs,umbrellas and toys. I only wish we had know about that-would've saved room in the car! Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay, and both the owners and the folks at Sea Turtle were extremely helpful.

We arrived on a Saturday for a week of spring break vacation the Condo was very nice, very clean except for a few cobwebs due to the high ceilings. Not knowing in advance through the week, condos near and around us were under constructions which interrupted our pleaser time sleeping in by 9:45am the chainsaws were at work and the works were very loud without care! I would love to come back everything was provided to us with care and thought, we had awesome owners! Couldn’t have asked for better weather!

We really loved this condo. It is beautifully decorated and clean. Had plenty of space for 5 adults. It is located as advertised about a 10 minute bike ride to the beach in a beautiful community. We rented bicycles and it worked out great. We also appreciated the locker at the beach club with things you would need for the beach.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely villa. It was clean (spotless, actually), comfortable, and cozy. Although the kitchen lacked a few essential items for the days when we wanted to cook (i.e. a juicer for limes and lemons, large cookie sheets), we will happily return.

We enjoyed our stay in 185 Evian, the location is very nice.....especially the deck views. The unit however, could use some TLC, painting in the bedrooms and master bath, replacing the heat register's which are dirty and rusty, some doors don't close and minor dry wall crack repairs. Basic house cleaning was fine, however some thorough cleaning really needs to be done periodically. There were some cobwebs in the corners of the bedrooms and underneath the beds and behind the dressers look like they have not been cleaned in a very long time with more than a few dust bunnies.....I also found some treasures like jelly beans, pop corn and a mozzarella stick wrapper. Dust accumulation on the baseboard trim was also heavy in some areas.

Beautiful condo centrally located in shipyards with tennis and pool on site. Nice deck with peaceful views of lagoon,nature, and golf. Easy bike ride to beach or convenient parking when you want to bring beach gear. Our family really enjoyed our stay here at Evian and will come again.

Our unit(185 Evian) is very attractively decorated .
It is a second floor unit with great views of the golf course
and lagoon. Lots of good natural light in the unit.
The bed in the master was very comfortable.
The unit does need updating.. especially the kitchen... some painting also would be good.
Housekeeping did a most inadequate job in preparing this unit for us.
Sea Turtle responded promptly to most of
our concerns... dirty carpeting and moldy shower curtails....although I did sweeping and dusting and some surface cleaning that was particularly needed.

Our 10th year in the condo. Feels like home to us. Excellent as usual. We even figured out the TV this year.
Great weather, again as usual. Will be back.

Hilton head is a fabulous destination and the Evian units are wonderful. Overall the condo was very clean and well designed
- john m. from Ottawa, Posted: 02/19/2018
The property was great in almost every way. We enjoyed the space, the proximity to the beach, the community, etc. The only suggestion is to do a better job of insect control. We had several large bugs die on the floors during our stay, and the cabinet above the microwave was gross with bugs. Fortunately, the bugs did not infest the property other than that cabinet. I know most people would never look in the cabinet above the microwave, but that does not mean it should not be cleaned once in a while.

We loved our visit to Hilton Head and especially loved our accommodations. The bed was like sleeping at home - the mattress was THE best we ever experienced in a rental property. The location was wonderful to watch the lagoon and have access to the pool & tennis courts as well as biking to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would plan to return to this property if we return to HH.

We have stayed at this unit several times! Great location, however this time we noticed none of the lamps worked and the plug ins/sockets were all loose and wouldn’t hold a plug. Our check out was at 10 and the cleaning crew came at 9:20, rang the door bell and knocked several times, leaving us feeling rushed to get out.

The condo was nice and comfortable, had everything we needed for our extended stay. The property was exactly as described, the furniture was comfortable although we would have preferred a couch instead of two love seats.
Everything was in working order but some of the doors did not close properly including the master bathroom.
The internet was adequate but for someone who was doing work from home, it did get bogged down a few times. If you're only vacationing for a week you should be fine.
The porch overlooking the golf course was great and Shipyard itself provided lots of bike paths ad things to explore. We ate at the Pub, food was good for a golf club pub.
The only drawback was the stairs to enter the condo. For us, it was fine since we are in good health but could be a problem for someone who has health issues.
Overall Evian was clean, comfortable and a great place to stey on HHI.

We stayed in this condo for a week and loved every minute of it. The Shipyard complex is beautiful, well groomed and has a perfect central location. We started our mornings with coffee on the balcony overlooking the pond....usually watching the alligators and herons only a few feet away! The condo itself was spotless and has everything you need for your stay. The beach locker has 2 chairs, 2 boogie boards and sand toys for the kids ( we donated ours too )I honestly cant find anything negative to say about the property, it was perfect and looks exactly like the photos, if not better. It's only a few minutes drive to the private beach access ( beautiful sugar fine sand ).....another few minutes the other way and you are at Coligny Beach with all its stores and restaurants. The pool within the Shipyard area was also spotless and great for the kids. If you don't book this condo, you are missing out.....we will be back!

Great location, very peaceful and conviently located. We love tennis and the tennis courts where at walking distance

Mostly very clean and comfortable. Well-stocked kitchen. Appliances worked great. Balcony recliners left out to the elements and not attractive to sit on. One broken window in main living room.

Unit was very clean and nicely furnished. Would stay here again

Nice location. Very spacious and close to shops/food. My family usually stays in Sea Pines and wanted to try something new. The sleeper sofa mattress was 100% springs and unable to be used. A cot located in the guest bedroom had multiple stains and was unsanitary. We purchased an air mattress to make up for the loss of one bed. We also found spiders and spiders webs thoughout the unit and all clocks had the wrong time after Daylight Saving Time. I would definitely rent the unit again after a thorough cleaning and replacement of the mattress on the sleeper sofa.

In general, the place was pretty nice. I would say the owners need to seriously look at who's cleaning their premises because cleaning was subpar and the two twin beds are not well constructed. The master bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. Although decorated fairly nicely, the cleaning pretty much overshadowed all of the good parts of the villa. It is conveniently located and about a 10-minute walk to the beach. If the owners change the company that's doing the cleaning of the premises I would have given this four stars.

The staff at Sea Turtles were terrific to work with. We made a last minute decision to rent a villa and they turned everything around on a dime and made it effortless for us
- Robert V. from Irwin, Posted: 01/04/2021
We found the condo clean, spacious and well stocked. The covered porch with the golf course and the lagoon view was an awesome bonus, and very private. The beach was a bit farther than walking distance, but an easy bike. Next time, I would rent a child cart or something to attach to a the bike to carry the beach gear, because parking at the beach club was at a premium. Overall, I cannot recommend this villa more. I would like to come and stay again in the future.

We love HHI...the weather, location, and villa were perfect.

The end unit location is awesome! Unobstructed views of the lagoon, 6th green, and alligators. We would stay there gain just for this!!! Easy 0.9 mile bike ride to Beach Club where you leave your larger items in the provided locker. The unit itself is nice! It’s clean but not spotless; the owners should insist on a deeper cleaning from the housekeeping service to periodically remove dust bunnies in corners, under beds, and behind doors; mopping the tile; cleaning the throw rugs; etc. This prime location sets high expectations, so it was somewhat of a letdown to not address those. There is no dead bolt on the front door; only a basic chain to stop anyone with the code from entering while you sleep. The door is downstairs away from sleeping areas so take a travel alarm. Suggest a hotel-type lock that allows the deadbolt from inside but disengages when opening the handle. Don’t allow these details from keeping you from renting this place! You will still be glad you went here in spite of these items. We plan to go back.

We had a great stay! From check in to check out it was everything we had hoped for. Sea Turtle does a great job, by getting everything you need in the pack they provide!

This is the fourth time I have stayed in this particular villa. I really like the location and the decor. It feels modern and clean. I had a great time, but I do want to make a few suggestions. The furniture in the living area does not comfortably accommodate a group of four or more, because you have to line up and sit side by side. Perhaps a chair or two could be added to the room? In addition, we noticed that the electrical receptacles in the guest room were loose; our chargers easily fell out. Finally, the kitchen cabinets hinges need tightening.
- Cathy B. from Lexington, Posted: 04/16/2019
We really enjoy Shipyard and the property is one of the best ones we have rented there.

We loved 185 Evian. This is the nicest place we have ever stayed at HHI! We have been coming here for 30 years or more. Great location, bike paths, quiet. Very lovely home.

This is the 6-7th time we have rented this condo and love it. Great experience all around.
We plan to return next year again.
