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!
