Very clean and spacious house with enough space for everyone to have privacy. Walking distance to beach, nice backyard with pool and easy access to kayaks. Everything that we could think of to enjoy vacation was available.
We had a great time and will be happy to come back!

We loved the idyllic setting and the spacious feeling of the home. The large glass windows brought the outside in with a view of the lagoon along with great bird watching opportunities. The game room was enjoyed every night after a day at the beach and swims in the backyard pool. We took advantage of the bikes, sand toys, beach chairs that were left in the garage for our use. We would certainly rent this house again! A special thank you to Lorna, our Vacasa manager who was so responsive whenever we had a question. We look forward to renting again through Vacasa.

This house was wonderful…had all the amenities of home and a great location. The only issue we had was we were given the incorrect WiFi info but within 5 min of email it was taken care of.

This house was absolutely amazing. It's even better than the pictures show. The house itself is huge, everything was immaculate, very clean, had everything you could possibly need (including 5 bikes, kayaks, pool toys)! The pool was beautiful and very clean. The lagoon access was so nice. We kayaked all around the lagoon and saw so many awesome birds (and some alligators!). The location is very quiet and very private. The bike ride to the beach was no more than 5 minutes (with kids). I would recommend this house 100%.

This is the 2nd time our family has stayed at 40 Starboard Tack. It is a great house for a family to enjoy with plenty of space, a beautiful pool, great kitchen, fun game room and not too far to the beach. The owners have done a great job supplying all the items to make a great vacation. I highly recommend.

We just spent a week at this home in Hilton Head with our two children and had a wonderful Covid safe getaway. The house itself is lovely (and clean!) and looks just like in the pictures.
The common living areas provide plenty of variety: the cozy yet light and airy tv room, the private 2nd floor loft area with a large sectional, the open large living room with a high ceiling and comfy furniture, and the game room. The kitchen is modern and well-appointed. It had everything we needed except food storage (we just bought some plastic wrap to solve that problem).
The game room with the ping pong table, shuffle board table, and video games kept our kids (and us!) entertained on the colder and rainier days during our stay. On the nicer days we went out on the two single kayaks and paddled around the canals in the neighborhood.
The neighborhood is gorgeous. The beach is a short walk from the house and there are wide sidewalks perfect for walking and biking just a few blocks away. It is a very tranquil and charming area yet within 10 minutes of grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants.
When we arrived, there was a problem with the water heater. Vacasa sent somebody to fix it right away and followed up with us later to make sure everything was working properly. The owner also contacted us. We were very impressed with the response! Vacasa also provided good housekeeping services - the house was very clean when we arrived and there were fresh flowers on the dining room table!
Thank you to Vacasa and the property's owner for a delightful vacation! We hope to return next year.

The house was beautiful, big, and bright! So clean and lots of amenities like bikes, kayaks, golf clubs. A short bike ride to the beach. We will definitely be coming back next year!!

This house is really big and has a fantastic heated pool (you have to pay to have it heated but worth every penny), kayaks, and bikes. A short bike ride to the beach where is was not crowded. The biking in the neighborhood is fantastic. The house was very clean and had tons of beach towels. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time and house is perfect with almost all needs . It needs more info in regards of how to use a couple of things like tvs, pool light, where the lights are outside and other minor but important things for a rental.
I found that for such a big house the family area is to small, I do suggest different seating on that area since only 6 people could seat comfortably.
I know it was not a great time for the managment company because of the Pandemic but we are paying full price for the service, so we were expecting full service. Had a couple of issues that were not resolved during our stay, actually had a hard time hearing back from managment.
Overall i think it was just my luck and timing but i give a 4 star to this home.
Thank you

My first time renting a vacation home for the family. This home was so beautiful, everything was perfect. Kitchen was very well equipped. Sleeping accommodations were very good. As this rental was during the month of November, homeowner had the swimming pool heated for us and everyone enjoyed using it. Thank you homeowner for letting us rent your lovely home.
