We have been going to Hilton Head for about 10 years. Now, we have found a new favorite place to stay.
The Shorewood 507 condo was absolutely great.
Very roomy condo, furnishings were almost all new and very clean. The property was very well maintained. and the Shorewood complex is pretty central to all of our favorite Hilton Head activities. It is on the beach facing the ocean. Just a couple of blocks from Coligny and The Frosty Frog. And since we had rental bicycles we were only a bike ride from the Salty Dog. HMMM is there a theme here?
Yep, good food and drinks at both ends of the island.
We slept to the sound of ocean waves rolling in at night. Just thinking about it I want to go back right now.
Even though many places on the island are still cleaning up and restoring after the hurricane. The Shorewood was neat and everything including the elevators and pool were in working order. While inside the complex you would never know that a hurricane had blown through only a couple of weeks ago.
The Seaturtle Getaways team were great. We had booked at another location on the island , inside Sea Pines but were unhappy with the property when we checked in so we called the Seaturtle Getaways team and asked them to help us find something. In less than half an hour they had found us this perfect location that met--exceeded our requirements. I have high praise for Merle and the team at Seaturtle Getaways for going the extra mile on such short notice. We will book through them again on future trips.

This is a return visit to Shorewood, having stayed at many other properties in the Coligny Plaza area. We love the Shorewood location, pool area, and beach front access. Unit 507 is a wonderful 3 bedroom condo- very large and spacious with gorgeous views from side and front windows! Our only complaint was the master king size bed- hard as a brick! It was very difficult for us to sleep comfortably which was disappointing. Also, living room furniture could be more comfortable. However, we will definitely return to Shorewood!!

Arrived Labor Day weekend. The first thing we noticed is that the unit was very spacious (as advertised), with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We could hear the ocean was very close but it wasn't until the next day until we saw the gorgeous view. The photos on the listing really don't do it justice.
It was also great being a short walk/drive from Cologny Plaza. My wife and I visited the Frosty Frog multiple times :)
In terms of the furniture, things were a bit older, which was mostly OK. For one thing, my mother found the smaller guest beds to be very uncomfortable. She eventually found one that was decent.
Regarding the appliances, a day or two in we noticed the fridge was freezing all of our food. This was unfortunate because we had hoped to save money on eating out, but we ended up having to throw out food that would not defrost gracefully.
Also, we found the dryer seemed to stop working after 1 or 2 loads.
To be fair, we called Sea Turtle Getaways and they sent someone out to look at the fridge the same day. They attempted a repair with a new part the next day but this did not actually fix the problem. Regarding the dryer, we did not try to use it until late in the week so it wasn't really feasible to expect a fix by the time we left.
So I would recommend this unit assuming the issues I mentioned actually get fixed. Until then it's hard to justify the premium we paid for the view.
Regarding Sea Turtle Getaways in general, I really can't fault them too much. They were responsive, and even sent back the Chromecast I left behind free of charge. So I would probably rent from them again.

It is considerably less disheartening to deal with sippy cups and nap times on vacation when you have a panoramic corner view from which to do it. Good layout for two families. Lovely zero depth entry pool and hot tub. Easily walk or bike to downtown Coligny. Nice express check in service over fedex with keyless entry. Worth the money.

Nice unit, well furnished, fabulous location.
Only complaint was shortage of flatware. 5 forks for a villa that sleeps 10? Had to use plastic fork for our 6th Thanksgiving dinner guest.
- Linda R. from Bluffton, Posted: 11/28/2017
The condo had an amazing view and was a perfect Mother's Day getaway! The patio was a great size to sit and enjoy the view or eat lunch and large enough to accommodate several people. We enjoyed the close access to Coligny Plaza and the ability to walk right down to the beach. It was nice to have the option of the pool and kiddie pool since the water is still a little too rough for the 2 year old! The property management company was so easy to work with, they made it an easy transaction and we were grateful they had a way to arrange for us to get our access information after hours. I couldn't be more pleased! The only complaint is that the mattresses need to be replaced- just not very comfortable. Looks like they are working on updates though, as the main bathroom and kitchen were updated. The other 2 bathrooms need to be updated too. then I think it will be 100%. I'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice condo that is conveniently located with a beautiful direct ocean view from both the living room and master bedroom. Easy access to the elevator, heated pool and beach. The gated entrance allowed the beach to remain less crowded. I appreciate how dogs and smoking were not allowed in the complex. I noticed other reviews commenting that the master bed was too hard, but this has been corrected. I was relieved to discover that the bed is now very comfy! I loved this place and would definately recommend it.
- Cheryl K. from Taylorsville, Posted: 10/16/2017
dryer never work properly, took all day to dry one medium sized load of towels, despite 2 phone calls
- Emily C. from Owensboro, Posted: 07/10/2017
We came in from out of town. The condo was beautifully appointed and furnished and it was extremely clean. The view was lovely and we so enjoyed being right on the beach!!
- steve h. from Tampa, Posted: 11/30/2020
We had a few hiccups at first, but once those were resolved we really enjoyed our stay. The code we were given for entrance into the condo didn't work and it took us almost two hours to get ahold of someone to reset the code (we arrived right after 5:00 p.m). We loved the condo. It was very spacious and clean. The views of the ocean are incredible and the pools were awesome. The staff was very friendly. We would definitely vacation her again.

Great location. Easy beach access. Nice pool. Close enough to shops. Would stay again.

Nicely updated condo. Location was fabulous; love staying at Shorewood.

Overall very simple to negotiate web site. Unit could use a update.
- James B. from Orient, Posted: 08/08/2017
This property was very nicely maintained and had nice accompaniments. Absolutely beautiful view.
- Kristen B. from Grosse Pointe Farms, Posted: 11/03/2020
This place was exactly as described. Cannot say enough about the perfect location and condo itself! The balcony was as if you were on the beach PERFECT!!!
- Anonymous from New Milford, Posted: 05/17/2021
We loved our time at this condo very much. We had everything we needed and it was the perfect location. The unit was stocked and supplied wonderfully. This condo is very well decorated and updated and we couldn’t have asked for more. We have stayed at Shorewood many times and this unit is one of the best. Comfy beds, awesome kitchen, modern furnishings and easy check in and out made our stay very enjoyable. We will be back!!
- Greg C. from Conway, Posted: 03/29/2021
Exceptionally beautiful view from a very spacious, nicely decorated condo. I chose this rental because the three bedrooms offered 5 beds - perfect for this single mom with 3 grown children and my parents. It was great to have 3 full baths as well. The beds could be better, but they were good enough. The bedroom ceiling fans were very loud but worked. The kitchen needs updated appliances and more silverware like someone else had written in their review (but there were more pots and pans than anyone could ever need!). The rest of the furniture was in good shape and very comfortable! The living room could use one more love seat, but we all fit. The balcony was large enough with an exceptional view! I wish there were a bigger table out there though so we could all eat out there at the same time. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay. We hope to be back again in the future!
- Patricia W. from Ellicott City, Posted: 06/04/2018
I'd like to suggest to get this unit cleaned thoroughly. I sent pictures to the agency which show some areas had not been cleaned for a long time.
- Ellen G. from Mansfield, Posted: 09/02/2019
I loved the unit but not the was a challenge at night to find a parking spot..
- Tracey R. from Pittsburgh, Posted: 06/29/2020
We came back to this unit for a 2nd time, because we love it so much! Here's what we love...Excellent direct ocean view. Kitchen with all the essentials. 3 full bathrooms. Quiet. Close enough to shopping that we could walk, or ride our bikes. Excellent pool/hot tub/ kiddie pool.
- Cheryl K. from Taylorsville, Posted: 09/20/2019
The title says it all.
This is our fifth stay at Shorewood and our third at 507.
Great location, well decorated, clean and plenty of room.
Sea Turtle Getaways rental agent, Merle, is an awesome lady. We have been renting through her for several years. Merle has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that our vacations are always memorable.
- Donald & Betty S. from Marietta, Posted: 10/21/2019
Great Location. Outstanding amenities. Perfect for a family of six. Very quiet. Right on the Beach!
- Mark N. from San Jose, Posted: 11/05/2019
Well appointed apartment in location close to stores and steps from beach. The views are stunning. Corner apartment affords views for miles down the beach and picture perfect sunsets.
Management company were very helpful in dealing with a maintenance issue.

Great unit, plenty of space for 6 or more. Very clean unit as well as the Shorewood complex. Neighbors and staff were very friendly and personable. Short walk to Colligny Plaza, lots of restaurants, grocery stores and fun bars all within walking distance. We had a great time. The only minor nit is that the washer and dryer take forever to do a load and the dryer doesn't really dry the clothes very well.
- Steve H. from Frederick, Posted: 08/23/2018
so overall it was a good stay, however, there was little storage available as owner had most cabinets, closets locked. Kitchen was not greatly supplied either, pizza pans ARE A MUST! Just kinda felt like I wasn't REALLY welcomed.
- John & Mary A. from Belle Vernon, Posted: 08/01/2018
This villa was as great as it was advertised to be. Two large bedrooms, one small one. Clean & spacious areas. Fabulous view on the beach. Walking to lots of resturants & shopping at Coligny. Rentable chairs & umbrellas on the beach daily or weekly. Perfect spot for '63 Cheerleader Reunion.
- Anonymous from Ninety Six, Posted: 05/07/2018
location is awesome as well s the view.one problem was that the room was not cleaned properly. we had to was the master bedroom sheets. the refrigerator nor the garbage pail had not been clean. there was a spider under the covers of one of the twin bed. aside from this, everything else was good.
- Anonymous from brooklyn, Posted: 09/19/2018
507 is a perfectly located unit. Beautiful views. My family enjoys staying here each year. Couple things, the dryer doesnt dry well despite lightening the loads. Also, during hurricane, the "window" in DR was sucked open and was extremely difficult to close due to to the fact the locks and twirlers were removed. Very unsafe and scary. We finally managed to fasten window. Otherwise, a lovely stay.
- Lisa B. from BRIDGETON, Posted: 10/15/2018
The condo is beautiful with a fabulous view. Everything was as advertised. All new furniture & decor was beautiful for a family of 6. Mgmt. company great to work with. Will be booking this condo every year!
- Don H. from Maineville, Posted: 10/06/2020
Best Villa Ever! Our family and extended family have been vacationing at Shorewood for years as the location is perfect. Hoping they will confirm a date for 2021, I would love to rebook! Thank you!

This was the first year we stayed in an oceanfront condo. We were not disappointed. The view from the condo was spectacular. The balcony was very large and we had a cool ocean breeze at all times - and no bugs even at night. Very convenient to Coligny. Will rent again.
- Gary J. from Lexington, Posted: 05/28/2019
Sea Turtle was an exceptional rental company. From the down payment, communication, and delivery of early check in materials, our rental of Shorewood 507 was hassle free. This 3 bedroom unit was more affordable than other 2 bedroom units. We were a little nervous. This was our fourth time renting at the Shorewood complex. 507 did not disappoint. You can’t beat the location and beach at Shorewood. My only recommendation is to invest in new mattresses for all the beds and the bed covers. This is not a deal breaker.
- Anonymous from Amherst, Posted: 04/29/2019
This was a nice condo. Plenty of beds, great location. Really nice pool for the kids and steps to the beach. It was quiet at night too, which was really nice. Wonderful views from the master bedroom and deck. My family had a wonderful vacation staying here! Kitchen supplies were a bit lacking, but had everything we needed. (A stainless steel frying pan would be nice instead of scratched-up teflon coating-yikes!)
- Deanna S. from Fort Mill, Posted: 09/06/2018
We had a wonderful time. However, the beds and the living room furniture need replaced. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo to our friends.
- Kimberly E. from Westerville, Posted: 06/24/2019
The Shorewood is always a nice place to stay. Our condo was large,but needed a lot of updating. The bedrooms were the worst.
- Donald B. from Verona, Posted: 10/24/2018
This was our third stay at 507 Shorewood and everything was still great. The condo was very clean, furnishings were up to date, beds, sofa and living area seating were comfortable. Kitchen appliances all in excellent condition.
We highly recommend this condo and the property management company--Sea Turtle Getaways as they were helpful and easy to deal with.
- Donald & Betty S. from Marietta, Posted: 09/25/2018
My son, daughter-in-law, two granddaughters, husband and myself just returned from one of the best vacation experiences we've ever had. This was our second time staying at this property but the other time was right after Hurricane Matthew two years ago. It was a good time also but limited because of blocked bike paths and closed stores. This time it was PERFECT! October is the secret season. Great weather and limited amount of people. No waiting in two hour lines to eat out.
- Kathy M. from Walton, Posted: 10/08/2018
Our family of five loved the fabulous view of the ocean from this spacious villa. The first morning there was a shortage of hot water for showers. We called for service and a technician knocked on our door within an hour, made some repairs, and problem solved! The kitchen is very well equipped, and the beds are comfortable, however, the living room seating should be updated. The couch is worn and the rattan and wooden chairs, while they are attractive to look at, are extremely uncomfortable for anyone to sit in for TV or ocean viewing! Nevertheless, we would gladly stay here again in the future just for the view!
- Sharon G. from Friendship, Posted: 03/28/2019
This was our 4th trip to HHI. Best condo, excellent for families and perfect location. Only negative was furniture. Outdated and uncomfortable.
- John D. from Brookfield, Posted: 04/23/2019
Clean and spacious rental with exceptional location and million dollar view! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the condo and our vacation in Hilton Head and would recommend this to friends!

We had a great time - I had never rented a house/condo before bu will definitely do it again. The convenience versus a hotel was exactly what we wanted!
- Anonymous from Edmond, Posted: 08/15/2016
The condo was very well furnished and clean. The only complaint I have is that air conditioner didn't keep it cool enough. One bedroom was very hot and we had to purchase a floor fan to make it usable. Loved the view from the deck and and the pool was excellent.

This was our 14th year at our Ocean Front condo. We loved it and will definitely be back again next year. Thanks Crane for setting it up for us! Sincerely, Jan,Jen and Joy!
- Jan A. from Yuma, Posted: 06/17/2017
This was the perfect vacation. Clean unit, beds were so comfortable. View was spectacular. This is where we want to stay everytime we visit Hilton Head from now on.

Had a wonderful experience at Shorewood! Condo was a corner unit, which made for a fantastic view of the ocean. Condo was clean and nicely decorated. Plenty of room for the 6 of us who stayed there. Had plenty of equipment and supplies in the kitchen.
- Anonymous from Ft Thomas, Posted: 08/01/2016
We love staying at Shorewood Villas always in a different condo. This was our 4th time there. 507 had beautiful views. The kitchen floor, counter tops and sinks were not clean upon arrival and the garbage can in the 1 bedroom was not emptied. The management company did send someone out immediately and it was taken care of. The master bed and twin beds in one of the rooms need replaced. There were no kitchen towels or wash cloths to use. I am glad I brought some extra. The condo was very large, had beautiful views and was nicely decorated. There were plenty of kitchen utensils to use. Very personalized. Overall it was a great stay with some minor glitches.
- Debbie F. from North Royalton, Posted: 07/11/2019
We thought the condo was in great condition. The rooms were a nice size, the kitchen and laundry area were good. The view was wonderful. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony during the day and at night. Would recommend this condo.
