We arrived on Friday, August 28th and spent that night at the Holidy Inn Oceanfront since we couldn't get into our villa until Saturday. We have gone to Hilton Head for several years but this is the first year we have arrived on Friday instead of check in day. I must say I enjoyed arriving a day early. There were 4 adults and 2 kids (3 & 4 yr old) in our group.
We rented 3101 Seacrest through the Vacation Company and could not have been more pleased with them or the unit. They were great to work with. The unit itself and the views were out of this world. We did the usual grocery shopping and checking out the beach on Saturday.
Most of the week was spent between the beach and pool as the kids love playing in the sand and water. The weather was great with a cool day on Wednesday and one night it rained but who cares we're on vacation.
We went to Shelter Cove to shop and watch Shannon Tanner twice during the week. The kids loved Shannon's show and actually sang with him on stage which surprised me b/c they are usually too shy to do things like that.
We also went to Salty Dog twice which we enjoyed relaxing and listening to the music while the kids danced.
We also went to Harbor Town one evening. The kids loved the playground area and treehouse.
We only ate out a few times and that was at Wild Wings which we all loved. We ate at Parrot's Cove in Shelter Cove which was okay. We ate at Aunt Chilada's which we will never do again. Not only was the food horrible but so was the service.
We all hated leaving Saturday morning but are now starting to plan our April trip.
