The property was as described and, for the price, is a good value. The location is very good and we were able to enjoy easy access to bike paths, the beach, etc. It is well supplied with kitchen supplies, towels, and linens.
The house is definitely functional, though somewhat dated. It could use some general maintenance (paint peeling in master bath, soft spots in floors, no stoppers in sinks and bathtubs, and the banister is a little loose). It was generally clean, though cobwebs were present along the ceiling beams, and there is substantial buildup in HVAC vents/returns.
While we spent most of our time outside, the house was sufficiently comfortable for our stay.

this unit is cute, nicely decorated and spacious enough. I was a little worried based on previous comments that it needed updating, but found the unit to be decorated very nicely. There is a narrow spiral staircase to get to a bedroom upstairs that may be difficult for some to navigate. The beach access is an easy walk, and the beach was never crowded. Great location.

Nice older villa, quiet area, accurately described by rental agency and easy walk to beach! Plenty of room for family with children. We enjoyed all the biking and walking trails in Sea Pines. Literally 4 to 5 min walk (paved walkway) to beach. Covered area under deck to park bikes and beach chairs, etc. Very pleased with bike rental set up thru Sea Turtle Getaways, bikes were there before we even arrived. Enjoyed scenic bikes rides to Harbour Town, Salty Dogs and the nearby stables. Several dinning options available close by, enjoyed take out from Sea Shack and Guisseppe’s Pizza. Had a delicious breakfast at Harbour Town Bakery. We also recommend Skull Creek and The Oyster Factory.

We had an amazing experience with Sea Turtle Getaways!! Housekeeping did an incredible job cleaning! They also found and returned a very important jewelry item to me. Very dependable and professional company. Renee, the owner, was so responsive and provides high quality care. We look forward to staying with them again in the future!!!

Overall we really enjoyed staying here! The locate was a short walk to the beach and we had a nice semi-private deck that made you feel like your in the jungle! Our biggest issue though was a lack of cleanliness. When we pulled up the window blinds, hundreds of dead gnats were just laying on the window panes. There were lots of cobwebs on the chandelier over the kitchen table and in the corners of the rooms. But as I said above, it really is a great location! Just needs some extra cleaning love!

Everything was perfect at pour arrival. We have very appreciated the bike and the accessibility to the private beach.

We really had a great time at Night Heron 64 and it was perfect for our family of 8. The house was very clean, and had everything we needed. We have rented houses all over the place and my husband and I agreed this was the best. The owners have done a great job stocking the house with supplies- we cook on our trips and you have everything we needed! All the views are lovely, the home was great fun for our kids. My only suggestion would be to hang some more towel bars downstairs by the basement area for guests to hang beach towels. We read that we couldn't hang them on the railing outside but that meant brining wet and sandy stuff indoors and it might be easier if there was a good outdoor place (even a clothesline) to hang things on to dry.

the staff was helpful when we checked in and the house was in a great location. it was describes as a short walk to the beach and it was very easy to get to. the house number for parking was broken and on the ground when we arrived so we were not sure where to park until we got out of the car. the house was clean somewhat....let me explain, there were spider webs hanging from the loft, the kitchen table was dusty and the floors felt a little sandy when you we barefooted when we arrived. we knocked down the webs and cleaned off the table and swept the floors. there were NO trash bags in the trash cans in the house nor were there any dish detergent or rag to was dishes with we used wash rags to clean off the table. I understood that there was supplies there that we needed more than was available we were to get for ourselves. which we did from the get go. the Wi-Fi never did work while we were there and we were only in the house late evenings so the office was closed for us to call for help with this matter. just an FYI I will tell my friends about your locations and kindness thanks again for a great week!!!!!!

We have been to Hilton Head over 10 times and by far this property was the best. It was very clean, well-maintained and had everything we needed and then some. The property was within walking distance to the beach and an easy ride to Sea Pines highlights. The service from Sea Turtle Getaways was outstanding and will definitely go through them again.

We LOVED the neighborhood, very natural. Very quiet and active. My kids loved the pool and the beach was close. The house was cute and comfortable. However, there were NO trash bags, NO hand soup, NO dish soap, NO dishwashing soap, NOTHING. Also,the house was a bit dirty in general.

Enough room for 8 to rest comfortably. Close enough to the beach access and a short drive to lots of restaurants and shops.

Right inside the Sea Pines Ocean Gate, the Night Heron Lane community and property was ideal for our group of 4 to stay for the week. There is a short walk to the beach on a nicely laid concrete path, and it's not as crowded since it's in the Sea Pines plantation. Staying inside Sea Pines, I received a Sea Pines pass, which was great since it costs money to go onto the plantation without one. There is 1 master BR on the main floor and a second bedroom on the main floor with 2 beds and a bathroom off suite. The other rooms on the main floor include a kitchen and family room with a TV. There is a shared pool a short walk from the property, which is well kept. The only comments that I have would be that the washer/dryer are old and I wish that there were more cleaning supplies provided onsite. Otherwise, we all enjoyed our stay and this is the 2nd time we happily booked through Sea Turtle Getaways!

Everything was great besides mattresses, and bear cans were thrown off the porch from previous stay

We very much enjoyed our stay - bright, clean, well stocked. Only thing - we would have loved to have a few more basics on hand (i.e., kleenexes,foil, etc) that we didn't need to purchase. But otherwise, we really loved our stay as a family of 5...plenty of space, quiet, relaxing!!

We always try to stay in this particular unit. It is always clean and very well decorated. Perfect location !

Thank you for another great review!! We are glad you enjoyed yet another stay and we will see you soon!

Great vacation house! Great location to the beach (easy to shop walk or ride bikes). Keypad entry was easy, deck over lagoon was nice and not a lot of mosquitos. Beds were comfortable. Close distance to popular coligny beach and restaurants. Location was perfect. Property was clean. Easy check in and out process. Only complaint was the palmetto bugs/ginormous cockroaches that came out at night and were in the trash. They mainly would pop up in the living room and cross me out but did see one in the master bedroom also.

The stay in this rental was very comfortable. Beautiful area and the rental was attractive and clean. Very easy to work with the property management personnel.

A bit further from the beach than anticipated. Took us a while to figure out how to get to the beach. Beach was excellent.

Great home for a week at the beach for 2 families. The rental was plenty big enough for 5 adults and 4 children. The rental is in a great location, short bike ride or walk to the beach. It was clean and the a/c felt great after a hot day outside. We will definitely consider this rental again.

We have stayed in Night Heron many times over the last 15 years, both in the smaller units and the larger houses. This house was the perfect size for our 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids ages 9-13) to spend the week together in beautiful Hilton Head! Night Heron is a great location, just inside the Ocean Gate to Sea Pines and a short walk to the beach. You cross the street and use the paved, narrow path (approx. 5 min.) Start to finish from your door to the beach, probably 10 min. total. Night Heron has a nice, large pool and usually is not too busy. Harbour Town, South Beach (Salty Dog) and Coligny are a few of our favorites and are all a short distance away. The unit itself is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The space under the house is very nice compared to those that we have rented before. It is paved (great for storing bikes, beach toys, etc.) and has a nice shower for rinsing off sand. The only downside to the unit was that there were a few more bugs than we would have preferred. There were ants on the kitchen counter/wall our entire stay. The first night we also saw a rather large palmetto roach inside the unit crawling up the wall. (Large as in we thought at first it was a frog.) That was the only one we saw all week, but it was a little startling. The loft had its fair share of spiders as well. We immediately called the rental agency and left a message (it was Sunday) asking that they contact pest control. I can't say for sure that they were contacted as we did not receive a call back and the ants/spiders continued throughout the week. We kept food off the counter (cereal, bags of chips, etc.) as best we could just to be safe and did buy a can of Raid. Overall, we were very happy with the unit and would most likely stay again.

Thank you for your review! We contacted the regime over Night Heron as they take care of pest control; I was assured someone would be out to spray the next day! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise and we hope to see you again next year!

The Night Heron area is awesome! This house was great for our family! The loft up stairs was perfect for our kids and gave privacy to the 2 bedrooms downstairs. The wooded scenery out the back of the house was awesome and relaxing. We had a 6 min walk to the beach down a beautiful path, and 2 min walk to the pool. Renting bikes was so easy and fun. Our kids enjoyed the trails in the Sea Pines area. You can bike to Harbor Town and the Old Plantation on the trails from the rental. Beach was beautiful and taken care of! Night Heron 64 was clean and customer service was amazing! I highly recommend it! You HAVE TO EAT at the Sea Shack, Duck Donuts, One Hot Mammas, and Aunt Chiladas.
