This was great for all 10 of us who were in Hilton Head for tennis. It was clean, spacious, and very comfortable plus a great location with a short walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend this home.
David W. Aug 2021
Beautiful home just a 5 minute walk from beach.

This house was perfect for our extended family. Teens upstairs with their own rooms, lounge and big screen TV. Downstairs for the adults with their own rooms, great room and large TV.

Fantastic house but needs some work. Very spacious and great for large families. Pool is small but accommodating. Located a short distance inside Sea Pines gate so very convenient.
Manager response:

We have shared your comments regarding updates needed with the local manager who will work with the homeowner to make any necessary improvements. We hope to welcome you back again in the future!

This is a great property for a large group
We had 4 couples and a single, many of them strangers when they arrived and friends when they left
Everyone had their own private space, but the open community area made getting to know each other easy.
Close to the beach and everything that HHI has to offer
Vacasa were friendly, helpful and made life easy for our stay

We loved our 6 days at 3 Sandhills Crane. It’s a great location in Sea Pines with the beach within an easy walk.
The home is very spacious with two masters and two living areas. The new kitchen is lovely and well appointed.
We will definitely come back—we’ve already booked a return trip!

Great location and great size , house just needs a little updating
Esmeiling C. Aug 2020
I truly loved the location of the house. Some of my concerns with the property were... The two bathrooms on the second level water drain very slow in the tub and the room with the two full beds tub Same thing. We showered in a puddle of water. Some Outlets didn’t work. The Pool lights didn’t turn on. the back patio door didn’t lock. The lamps in the second level full size bed bathroom didn’t work so we only had the light from the bathroom. The house wasn’t cleaned there were spider webs in the kitchen on top of the cabinets, there were rappers of Charlie rancher candy by the bed. A lady can on Saturday to clean the pool when we checked in on Friday. Which was very concerning and disappointing considering Covid-19.

Manager response:
Hi, Esmeiling! We appreciate your review and are sorry to read you had any disappointments. This home is now under new ownership, and extensive work is going into the home starting in the new year. The pool company is addressing the pool light as soon as they can, the back patio door must have the handle lifted in order to lock, and our housekeeping company has been advised of your cleanliness concerns. Please do not hesitate to reach out during your stay for assistance with any of these things. Thank you!

From dirty floors and bathrooms to scratches on the walls, we were very disappointed in the cleanliness of Sandhill Crane 3.

This property is completely run down and has not been maintained well enough to be serving as a rental property. It is clear that the owners stopped taking care of it a while ago. The floors were rotted and flimsy in several places (which they tried to cover with rugs), the oven would not close (we had to prop a chair against it in order to cook anything at all) and one of the eyes did not work, the furniture was clearly run down, and several of the lights in the home did not work (or the bulbs hadn't been replaced). The pots, pans, etc. in the kitchen also left much to be desired (not one baking sheet, except one that didn't fit in the oven). There were nails in walls throughout the house that appeared to have previously held artwork. Outside, the landscaping was not maintained either. Specifically, the path to the beach was overgrown with palm trees, which were difficult to push out of the way without getting hit in the face when walking down to the beach with armfuls of supplies, chairs, toys, etc.

Needless to say, we were not pleased with the property's condition, especially considering the price we paid for the week.

I also had a hard time communicating with Vacasa. While the check-in/out process was ultimately smooth, shortly after booking the property I tried to contact the property management company with questions. I waited on hold two separate times for over two hours each. And several of my questions were never answered.

The only upside to the property was the location. It is nestled just inside of the beautiful Sea Pines community and is a short 5-minute walk from the beach. We found beach access very easy (aside from the overgrown path) and appreciated the outdoor shower by the pool.

I highly recommend you look elsewhere in Hilton Head.
Manager response:
Hi, Micah! We appreciate such helpful feedback and apologize for the disappointments you experienced. This home is now under new ownership and will be blocked for several months for renovations that will include replacing the floors. All maintenance concerns will be addressed during this period. The beach path is regularly blown and trimmed to maintain accessibility. Thank you!

Perfect size house for our large family. The pool was great. The kitchen needs some updating and better equipment but other than that it was great.
Michele S. Jul 2020
The home was spacey, comfortable, a great location, just 5 minutes walking to the beach, and very close to bike trails, the forest preserve and the gate to leave Sea Pines. The cleanliness was average, the sheets were all very wrinkly, the bed spreads were on the beds (I do not think they should be during this time) and the kitchen (all dishes, silverware, cooking utensils) were filthy. We had to do a serious cleaning of the kitchen when we arrived. The property is nice, but it needs to be cleaned much more thoroughly overall, especially during Covid.
James C. Jun 2020
The five bedrooms and five and a half baths worked out well for our growing family. Not a bad walk to the beach. For Sea Pines it is an easy in and out to other places Hilton Head has to offer.
Latresa W. Jun 2020
We love the location and Proximity to the beach..literally a five minute walk through trail. The home had plenty of space, dishes and sleeping space. The pool was awesome and the second day the cleaners were there to clean the pool again. The booking was easy and Vacasa was available if needed.

Incrediable working with me with my needs to swim!
Beautiful and roomy place.
VINCENT R. Jun 2017
Perfect home for my family. Just a short walk to the beach. Small pool but it was clean and good enough for my 2 children. Used the grill twice without problem. Maintenance and customer service top notch.

The house was very spacious and comfortable. We never felt crowded. Near the beach and the pool was ample size. I would rent this house again.
