“Best kept secret on Hilton Head”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We used to own unit 107 (was model unit) week 41 up until a couple of years ago. We loved Spinnaker because it is on a dead-end road, on the golf course and is only a short walk to the beach. Our package included 4 rds of golf daily and an hour of tennis. There are also 2 courts onsite you can use any time. What was so nice is that each unit has a deck out back and because they are townhouses you have no one above or below you. Most of the time the only sounds you hear are the ocean, the birds and the sound of people hitting golf balls. The units are large, well appointed and always maintained. There are also 2 bikes which come with the unit which saves a couple of bucks plus the aggravation of renting. Unfortunately we sold our one week for a longer ownership, but we always seem to compare everything else to Spinnaker.

If you are looking for a great place, clean, efficent, spacious and quite this is the location that you want. The check-in was actually fun, easy, and very helpful. The property was clean and ready for us. You really have to see this to appreciate the value you get. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Try to get in the property with the "400s"-- nice location.

This is our 5th trip to HH and we've stayed in various resorts located all over the island. We found Spinnaker to be wonderfully located--set back in a beautiful wooded area overlooking a golf course with trails for biking or walking, yet close enough to get to any where else you wanted to go. Yes, it is a resort better suited to couples or an older crowd but after last years resort where kids were running around all time, this was a pleasant change. Condo was large, clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Only negative for me was the bikes---they were very old and in poor condition so I was afraid to ride one.

We stayed at Spinnaker at Shipyard on Hilton Head Island in June. We were here on a family vacation. We have three teenagers 14, 16 & 18. We all agreed that this was probably one of the most beautiful locations we've stayed at since our trip to California.

The grounds around Shipyard are beautifully landscaped with very large trees and bright colored flowers. Every tree is dripping with spanish moss which adds to the ambience. It is very shaded for bike rides along the bike paths. Two bikes were included with our rental and the kids took turns riding to the beach. You can rent additional bikes at area locations if needed. You are not directly on the beach but very close bike or walking distance. We also drove our car and parked in a lot within Shipyard and walked right onto the beach from there.

The unit was a 2 bedroom townhouse with 2 and 1/2 baths. The sofa in the living room pulled out also. The master has a king bed and the 2nd bedroom had two twin beds. Each bedroom had it's own bath attached and the 1/2 bath is on the main floor. It appears that some recent updates have been made but nothing elaborate. Wallpaper was painted over, countertops were all changed to granite but the showers and tubs were original or appeared to be. The cultured marble master bath shower and tub were showing their age. The unit also had a laundry room right off the kitchen with a full size washer and dryer. Once my husband got the kink out of the dryer hose it worked fine. Everything was clean but again the master bath shower was not new so there is a build-up of years of use. All the usual dishware in the kitchen and enough towels and wash cloths to go around but daily use will mean daily laundry. I like keeping up with my own towels while on vacation. I'm not fond of the towel exchange programs! Also, the carpet appeared to be clean but my husbands socks proved that to be wrong!

As far as the island goes, we enjoyed it, the restaurants and the beaches. The island is not very large so we felt a little congested. I heard June is the slowest summer month so look out if you plan on traveling here in July or August I guess. The beach is a little on the crowded side with beach chairs and blue umbrellas set up side by side. The Tanger outlets were fun for shopping and Coligny Plaza was good for eats and treats and shopping. Overall it was a nice time and a little different from our usual Florida vacations. I would stay here again. Also I put up some photos. Happy travels!

Spinnaker is OK. The units are pretty nice with plenty of room for small family. The pool is OK and rarely crowded. Its mostly older people and little to no activities for kids or young married people. Most people seemed to be 50+. I have been here numerous times and always the same. If you want a very quiet vacation with an older crowd and little to no activities this is your place! Just not for me and my family.

Wonderful townhouse style condos that have been naively upgraded, including granite counters, flat screen Tvs. We had previously viewed travelers photos and we were quite worried that it seemed very dated but all the units have been updated. They were very clean, we didn'T see any insects at all. Unit was minimally supplied (small coffee maker and teeny mugs) Bring your own Beach towel.Overall it was a great stay at a gorgeous setting with our unit (423) close enough to walk or bike to the beach.We loved the the 2nd bedroom had it's own private bathroom.

This was our second trip to Hilton Head. Last year we were oceanfront and it was spectacular. This year we were prepared to be disappointed with our "landlubber" location, but quite the contrary. Shipyard is a quiet, scenic, gated compound with lots of personality. Shaded lanes winding around tennis courts, swimming pool, fairways and a variety of water amenities. Our unit had a pristine pond steps away from our private patio. It had a lighted fountain and a regular feathered visitor-- an Egret, I believe. If you need the "big water", It is an easy walk or a very short drive, (car or furnished bike) to the Shipyard beach area. We walked the wonderful beach nearly every day. At the unit, be prepared for steps. It's a climb to the front door, and a second climb to the upstairs bedrooms. Our unit was fresh and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything except coffee filters. We were delighted to find a large, flat screen TV on the living room wall. It must have been 50" . There are TVs in the bedrooms as well. Another amazing feature was the master bath. Huge double sink area, large marble whirlpool with companion shower, soaring ceiling with a skylight. Very impressive! You'll love this place... we did. Only two things were of general concern: There wasn't a single smoke alarm or CO2 alarm in the unit, and we slept upstairs. Secondly, housekeeping apparently missed a rather large colony of black mold in the utility room. All said and done, we would be delighted to have the opportunity to return to Spinnaker, and hope to do so next year. Oh by the way... be sure to check out Dye's Gullah Fixin's.. best low country food you'll ever taste. Southern home cooking at it's very best!
