We had 6 adults and 5 teenagers and there was definitely enough space for everyone. Beach access is very close and is accessible - no stairs, just a ramp. The beach cart, chairs, and umbrellas were super helpful. We rented a few additional bikes at Outfitters in Palmetto Dunes and enjoyed riding along the paths. Access to the home's deck was tricky - the slider was very difficult to open and close and we couldn't open the door from the kitchen to the deck. Also, the wi-fi was pretty bad - we didn't want to watch TV but it was a bit of a hassle when needing to work on laptops, etc. Overall a good experience and we would stay here again.

Lovely home, clean, great space for families
Brittany M. May 2021
This home is perfect for a family getaway. Close walk to the beach, amazing pool/hot tub, wonderful kitchen dining area, and love the extras like having bikes!
It's a good idea to bring a few extras, dish pods & garbage bags, but otherwise the home has everything! Tons of plates, cups, & utensils, etc.
The bathrooms could use a bit of updating, but not a deal breaker in this fantastic home.
Kirt K. May 2021
Great location in Palmetto Dunes on HHI. Short walk to beach. Home had plenty of room for three couples ... and a pup. Recently updated main living areas and kitchen. Deck and pool/spa (also new) were great. Initial issue with spa heater, but Vacasa representatives promptly responded to call and resolved issue. Great getaway!
Rebekah S. Apr 2021
We stayed here two nights with our kids. The house is huge! There are no trash bags, sponges, or basic cleaning items - which is very annoying when staying for two nights. The pool is very pretty but it was suppose to be heated and it wasn't. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but the bathrooms show the age of the house. The location is perfect, only a couple minute walk to the beach.
Manager response:
Hi Rebekah, we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed this spacious home and its great location near the beach! We would like to clarify that we were unable to heat the pool during your stay as 48 hours notice is required so that the water has time to come up to temperature. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunication regarding the pool heat and we hope that the partial refund issued is some resolution for the inconvenience and disappointment you experienced. We hope you choose to stay with us again so that we can deliver a truly memorable vacation experience.

We really enjoyed our week at Lookout 1. Home was very clean, well equipped, and decorated with contemporary beach decor. The house was very much as promised and a short walk to the beach. I would certainly recommend this home for a family getaway!
Jackie P. Mar 2021
Wow! This home is gorgeous. It looks like it has been recently renovated. Furniture and mattresses were comfortable. The home had everything we needed. We hope to be back soon.
Joe M. Mar 2021
This home is gorgeous! Short walk to the beach. Vacasa made the entire process very easy.
Dina M. Dec 2020
This house was absolutely wonderful! The lay out was great, decor beautiful and the home is very spacious. There is plenty of room to have some privacy from others if you choose. Everything was updated, nice appliances, etc. We would definitely recommend and will definitely rent again. Can't say enough nice things about it. Just perfect!

Master bed was so comfy. The hot tub and pool were amazing. The house layout is very refreshing!

We had a group of 9 stay at this location on a short vacation. There were 4 teenagers (17), 5 adults and 1 dog. We were very happy with the accommodations and amenities that were provided. Check-in was set for 4:00 PM but the house was ready at 2:30 PM. Check-in was simple. The house has nice décor, very spacious and appears to be recently renovated and has a great layout for all the people in out party. There were 2 bedrooms above the garage that shared a bathroom which was perfect for the teenagers to have their own space. The other bedrooms were very well organized and had their own bathroom. We cooked our meals and the kitchen is very spacious and that is where we spent most of our time. New appliances, with excellent cookware, silverware, dishes, baking pans, cookie sheets, spatulas, knives, and glassware. We loved the bar set that was provided to be able to mix drinks. The deck, pool and hot tub were in excellent shape and we all enjoyed being able to socialize in this area. There also were plenty of “smells” and deer around the property for my dog to enjoy on our walks.

The location to the beach was approximately a 5-minute walk from the front door. Located in the garage as others had informed, were 5 adult bikes and 3-4 children’s bikes that are in great condition for use, bicycle lock, a bicycle tire pump, 6 beach chairs, a new spacious wagon that holds all the beach chairs, cooler and more with pumped up tires, a beach umbrella, and beach/pool toys. I have never seen this at another house on Hilton Head island that I have stayed at before.

The only area I can comment that could be improved is there was one dishrag and two dishtowels, 1 role of paper towel, 4-5 dishwasher pods and 2 trash bags. I read the reviews and I had brought 4 extra trash bags (we still fell short, but that was our fault) extra dishwasher pods, and paper towels. An extra dishrag and dishtowel would have been nice, but certainly that is no reason not to rate this property/location a 5 star.

This property was amazing! It was beautiful, clean and the kitchen had all supplies you could think of. The layout was great for entertaining since it was a coed trip. The men were able to watch football in the room off from the patio while grilling while the ladies cooked and socialized in the kitchen and breakfast room area. The gate security was friendly and helpful! The garage has ample amounts of items for activities even though we didn’t have time to swim or bike ride. The fact that we could was god to know. I will definitely book this property again!!!

Pool and Deck are large and beautiful.
Inside looks like new
bobby m. Sep 2020
The layout of this home was spacious; plenty of space for 8 adults and a toddler. We loved that it was mainly all on one level, and the pool was so nice after a hot day on the beach!
The rental company will tell you "no, this house does not provide that", but this house DOES have beach chairs (amazingly helpful!), 5 adult bikes, 3 kid bikes, one beach umbrella, and floats for the pool. It also has a wagon to help you bring items to the beach but unfortunately 2 of the wheels had split so it doesn't really roll anymore.

The house does not provide beach towels, so bring your own! All beds had sheets and plenty of pillows. Bathrooms had towels but they are very small and poor quality. We got by, and it was fine!

The rental company was impossible to get in touch with until the day we were supposed to check in. The check in process was super easy, but when we arrived we noticed the house was missing many basics (ie: trash bags, paper towels, dish soap, sponge, laundry detergent, gas in the propane tank, etc). When I called to request these items, they said that they only provide one roll of paper towel and only one trash bag (for 8 adults and 3 days!). Thankfully, with some pushing, they dropped off a few more supplies to get us through the weekend. When you are paying so much for a rental home, you would assume it would be stocked with basic items to keep the place clean and organized.

Overall, we loved this house and we would stay here again. The walk to the beach is only about 5min and it's paved the entire way. Plenty of parking onsite. We had 4 SUVs in the driveway.

We enjoyed the beautiful new pool and the completely updated kitchen with all new appliances and dishes! Every detail was thought of and the layout of the home is different but great with multiple family's and kids.
Elizabeth O. Jul 2020
The house was very nice, and with the exception of the bathrooms was recently renovated. Kitchen was spacious and had all the necessary utensils, pots and pans for cooking meals each night! Perfect set up for our family of four (although could comfortably accommodate another family as well) with plenty of space to separate and/or have family time together. Seven TVs throughout the house was perfect for my girls who need access to TVs no matter what room they land in to hang out. Pool was very nice, and the deck was large with a grill.

While the house was overall clean, extra attention could be given to the bathrooms and the garage. Floor of the showers and bathtub did not seem like they were “wiped down” and sinks needed touch up before use. There was a lot of sand in the garage all over the floor; however, the house did have lots of Bikes to use so it saved us the cost of having to rent Bikes for the week! There was a wagon to pull items to/from the Beach, but we were not able to use it because one of the wheels was duct-taped together and split! Would recommend this house and/or stay here with my family on another HHI vacation.
Dan F. Jul 2020
Nice house! Very closet to beach (4 minute walk). We had 8 people and were very comfortable. Also, many beach chairs and 5 adult bikes in the garage to use! Also has a nice pool!
Julie B. Jul 2020
I booked this property when it was under renovation so only design sketches were available and no pool images but we weren’t disappointed. The rooms are generous size, and there are multiple areas for both eating and gathering. Deck is huge, pool is a very nice size and includes a spa. Excellent beach proximity (takes 1-2 minutes to get to the beach path) and kitchen is well appointed with higher end cookware and brand new appliances. Our teenagers also enjoyed the bikes, and the beach chairs were great with a handy wagon to tote them to the beach. Minor aspects of the bathrooms were a little outdated but still completely usable. Decor is fresh and modern. We reported an issue with the ice maker and the management company sent a tech out. It was not able to be fixed immediately but the response was prompt. Very likely to book this property in the future.

I will start with the positives. The home is spacious and clean with a great floor plan for all of us (7 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs). The kitchen had plenty of space for all of us to cook and eat together. The deck had plenty of space for all of us to hang out and the pool was a great way to enjoy the day without being around crowds of people. The home was equipped with floats, beach chairs/umbrella, and bikes.... about 4-5 bikes for adults and about 3 for kids. It was awesome to be able to grab a bike from the garage instead of having to take time and money to rent them. The home is in a cul de sac which was an added bonus for the kiddos. We were about a 5 min walk from the beach, and there was a light crowd ensuring social distancing. We felt very safe.

There are deer that strolled through the property. They were often just several yards away which was very exciting for the kids (and adults to be honest)😊.

The downside was that the internet service in the home did not work the majority of our stay. The property manager was pleasant to talk to, and I believe he tried his best to assist us but it didn’t change the fact that we didn’t have internet... no gaming, no Netflix, no devices... this was a blow to the trip. With the property manager’s help, I was able to speak directly with a customer service rep from Spectum to troubleshoot the issue by phone. We tested the connection on one television and on a tablet and it seemed to be fine. We later discovered that some of the televisions in the home still wouldn’t connect.

We decided to grill, but discovered that the propane tank was empty when we were ready to put our food on the grill. As you can imagine, we were a little annoyed. We had to drive around to find a place that had not run out of propane tanks which took about an hour.
Manager response:
Hi, Bapuamoyo! We are sorry to read you still struggled with the internet after it was deemed resolved by the provider; we have tested our devices in the home and found everything connecting. We have added a back-up propane tank to the home to ensure guests always have a ready tank if we miss refilling the current one. Thank you!

Several friends and I went on vacation together. The house was huge and we had more than enough room for 11 people!
Marne P. Jun 2020
The house was perfect for our family of 8 plus 2 grandparents and our dog. The pool is beautiful and great size, the house is filled with great games for the kids to play, they had 8 bikes all different sizes, and the beds were extremely comfortable.
Badal V. Jun 2020
The house has been recently renovated and has everything you need. The furniture is wonderful, there's a tv in nearly every room, the pool and hot tub are fantastic and the best part is it's all (for the most part) on 1 floor! Rooms and beds are spacious and easily fit my family of 5 and my brother's family of 4. Would highly recommend!
Corrie S. Jun 2020
This home was beautifully decorated, plenty of space for our family and a gorgeous pool. It was only a short walk to the beach. The home has everything including beach chairs, beach cart, pool floats, many kitchen amenities. We loved the open concept and having sight of the family from the kitchen while everyone could enjoy doing their own thing. We enjoyed our time & cannot wait to book another trip!!! Thank you!
Cynthia J. May 2020
We had a wonderful long weekend in your beautiful home! The pool, hot tub and deck are great spaces for family to gather to extend the daily fun after a long day on the beach. We look forward to hopefully staying in your home again soon.
I was actually quite skeptical booking the house since only 3 of the bedrooms were pictured, but so glad I did! The upstairs bedrooms were just as pretty and functional as the main floor rooms pictured. Reservations, checking in and checking out were all very convenient and super simple. Many thanks!

Brand new renovations and pool! Short walk to the beach!
Zachary A. May 2020
Our group loved everything about this house! It is newly renovated and has a brand new pool. As the first renters with no reviews and at the time no photos of the pool, we were a little nervous to book, but the house is even better than the pictures!

The layout is great, large kitchen, plenty of seating in the two dining rooms and two family room areas. House is beautifully decorated with attention to detail. Very nice, new deck and gorgeous large pool.

The house also has several bikes, nice beach chairs and some pool toys and floats in the garage.

The walk to the beach is easy and beautiful.

Ride bikes to the full sweep bridge where you can see dozens of turtles and toss them some bread. Short bike ride to the General Store, Coco’s and Dunes House for drinks and food.

We all agreed we’d love to stay here again.

Cheers, Krista A.
