“The very best of Hilton Head is at Spinnaker at Shipyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2010

I'm all about ambiance and Spinnker at Shipyard Plantation has the quiet, laid-back, southern charm and ambiance that one would expect to find in South Carolina. Even in February, the days can reach a toasty 70 degrees. Cycling around the island on the complimentary bikes is what I choose to do, while G plays the links. Occasionally, after a hard day of golf, G will hop on the other bike and we'll ride to our favorite restaurant. Mostly, though, when it comes to dinner, we first enjoy doing some shopping on the island's ridicuously expensive gourmet grocery store and then spending most nights preparing wonderful meals in the well-stocked full kitchen. The only meal I generally cook at home during the year is Thanksgiving dinner, so I really enjoy cooking while on vacation. I usually take one day to cruise to Savannah for the experience of Riverfront shopping. We have already made our reservations for February and March of 2011, but we'll be staying at the other end of the Shipyard Plantation, at Egret Point. We prefer to travel to Hilton Head before the golf season heats up and the island gets busy. If you (Lobsterlvrs) are among the smoking, drinking, bowling, betting, loud, tattooed, nose-tongue-eyebrow-navel-hardware-sporting crowd, you'll better appreciate Myrtle Beach; Hilton Head is for the rugby, polo, tennis, golf playing, bicycle-riding, gourmet-food-eating-type crowd.

We have owned week 41 at Spinnaker at Shipyard about 10 years and have taken one of our vacations there each and every year. Each year the facility and the amenities are better and if there should be a problem, it is handled pronto. A pleasant 10/15 minute walk to the beach and after reaching the beach, about 1.5 miles to Caligney Square, one of my favorite spots in Hilton Head. It is truly my week of total relaxation!

Spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo unit backing up to golf course and pond with wildlife. The newly renovated unit had flat screen TV and everything our family of 5 needed for the week. Nice pool and daily activities for kids plus close to beach access. 2 bikes provided with unit and complimentary golf greens for up to 4 rounds per day! We'll be going back to Spinnaker at Shipyard every year!

We stayed in Spinnaker at Shipyard, and found a great last minute deal for the week of Easter. We picked Hilton Head Island because it's a great place to play tennis, and we were not disappointed. We found our room on VRBO, and it was a timeshare rental. The rate included two bikes, and one hour of free court time at the Van Der Meer tennis facility, located just a quick bike ride down the street. The Shipyard is a large resort-type complex, with many different conda/villa complexes. I was pleasantly surprised that each condo facility has its own tennis court and swimming pool. The tennis courts at the condo are first-come, but are free. We never had to wait for a court, as it appears that most people come for golf. Bicycles are the primary mode of transportation while in the resort, and there a plenty of bike paths for this purpose. We were disappointed to learn that the Van Der Meer facility closes at 7 pm...too early by my standards, and the condo courts are not lighted. Check in was simple, but heed the warning that most rooms are not available until 5 pm on check in day. And, don't try to check in after dark...it would be difficult to find our villa after dark. The condo was spacious, and very quiet. Even though our villa was the closest to the pool, we never heard the squeeling children (they were squeeling because the pool is not heated). The bedrooms were spacious, and the kitchen was very large. We will definately return...we had a great time.

We own in Branson, Mo but enjoying trading at other locations. I would have to agree, go before dark and check in which was simple and very easy. Staff is very friendly and although we did go to a briefing on timeshares..they were NOT pushy at all. Excepted our decline on the offer. CLEAN and spacious. Lots of stairs.
