We stayed 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with a maximum occupancy of 6. Our party was somewhat smaller with 2 adults and 1 child.The villa was in the Harbour Point side of this small resort, in the Osprey building. We had a villa located on the top floor of the building with views out across the creek.
The villa was clean, and of the normal Marriott Vacation Club standard, we thought that the villa was perhaps a little dated. We had plenty of room for ourselves and our luggage etc. We had contacted the resort ahead of our arrival and they arranged fir us to be in an adjacent villa to our friends.
The views across the creek were great, being able to watch dolphins from the balcony was a highpoint! Plus the weekly fireworks display across the creek was good.
Unfortunately with the creek being so close there were also plenty of mosquitoes around though outside.
The resort is very quiet without a bar or restaurant, and only a very small shop. We were aware of this prior to our arrival, but did consider once we were there that actually the resort did lack these facilities. Also with no where to really spend money on site, it is very difficult to earn Marriott Rewards points.
The plus point was that the activities team put on quiet a few social events during the week, including a "Brats & Fireworks Cookout" on the evening of the Firework display, complimentary with donations requested for a children's charity. There was also a other complimentary events such as cheese & wine, chips and salsa, etc.
The resort has 2 pools, both reasonably small plus there are 2 hot tubs. There is no direct beach access, the suggested beach access is approximately 2 miles away near the Marriott Hilton Head Resort & Spa. We used the Marriott Hilton Head Resort & Spa itself for our beach access most of the time, parking in their car park and accessing the beach via the hotel. We also on one occasion used the beach access a bit further away at Marriott's Grand Ocean property.
There are 6 grills (BBQs) available for guest use, we used these on a number of occasions. It was pleasant to sit outside watching the sunset and eating in the evening from the gazebo.
For a first visit to Hilton Head with friends the resort was ideal, very friendly and quiet. It was a very worthwhile exchange from our own Marriott Vacation Club property.
It is within walking distance to Shelter Cove Marina, with a number of bars, restaurants and activities available.
The island itself is very relaxing and laid back, with excellent beaches even if there is a high risk of jellyfish stings.
Free WiFi is available throughout the resort.
