Please keep A/C temperature above 70F for optimal comfort. It is recommended to set it at 72F. Remember to keep doors and windows closed to maintain a cool home and keep bugs out. Fridges may take 24 hrs to cool when loaded after cleaning. 
Please be aware & mindful that there are alligators throughout the fresh water areas of Charleston, SC. You should assume that there is an alligator in every pond, lake & fresh water river.  Please do not allow small children or dogs near the edge of these fresh water areas.  DO NOT feed or taunt the alligators!
All of iTrip Hilton Head Properties have both a drip and Keurig coffee maker. Each property will have kitchen towels, dish clothes, hot pads and starter supply of soaps, detergents, paper products and trash bags intended to only last a few days. Each bedroom and bathroom will have sheets & towels already on the beds, soaps and shampoos and a hairdryer for your use.
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time. They can be pretty big, can fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. Rest assured all of our homes are professionally treated at least quarterly for pests. Any bugs that manage to get inside will die quickly.

According to Eric Benson, Ph.D. professor and extension entomologist at Clemson University “It has nothing to do with cleanliness or the economic conditions of the area,” said Benson. “They could be around the nicest home or the nicest hotel or resort.”

If you leave the doors or windows open, especially at night, you will likely see a few. This is perfectly normal. If you see 20 or 30 all in one place then please let us know. This might mean we have a nest somewhere in the home and we'll need to get pest control out to take care of it. This is extremely rare!  

Please don't worry about bugs, enjoy your vacation. You'll likely not see any while you are here, we just include this note so you understand it's not unusual to see some and it doesn't mean the home isn't well looked after! 
Most community pools remain open from March through October but this does vary by resort and is subject to maintenance schedules and emergency closures for health reasons. Please contact us to see if the pool will be closed during your fall or winter vacation.

We do not manage any of these community pools and are not responsible for management of them. We do not provide refunds for pool closure. 

The premises, all fixtures thereon and all property on or around the premises is provided to Tenant “as is” without any warranties of any kind.  None of iTrip Vacations, Sea Oats Vacations LLC. or the owner of the premises shall be responsible for any direct, indirect, consequential or incidental damages arising out of or relating to this Rental Agreement.  The use of the premises is at Tenant’s own risk.
Many homes have garbage disposals. Not all food is suitable for disposing of in a garbage disposal.  

Do not put any chemicals, hot oil, grease, coffee grinds, pasta, bones, shells of any kind, oatmeal, nuts, onion skins, eggshells, trash, pumpkins, fibrous vegetables, lettuces, stringy vegetables, potato peel, pits, corn husks down the disposal.  

We check the disposal is working prior to all guest arrivals. In the event the disposal or kitchen sink plumbing is blocked due to material put down the disposal this is the responsibility of the guest.  If a plumber has to be called then the guest will be charged for that visit.
Please NO PARTIES, EVENTS, PERFORMING ARTISTS OR BANDS ARE ALLOWED AT ANY TIME! These are cause for eviction with no refund and may damage our ability to offer the home for future guests exposing you to liability. This is a quiet residential neighborhood -- please be respectful of the home's neighbors at all times.

Properties may include a noise alert monitoring system and other electronic devices in order to ensure that neighborhood noise and occupancy levels are respected. Do not tamper with amny device. 

Occupancy is limited at all times during your stay - day or night - to the maximum 'sleeps' number stated in the listing. Please do not invite additional people to the home. 

Early Check-in
We work hard to try and allow our guests to get in early. This depends on check out times, cleaning and inspection schedules as well as any maintenance issues. We will text on the day of arrival once we know we can allow an early check in.

Please contact the travel agent that you used to make your booking if you wish to cancel. They will notfiy us directly. 
Our vacation homes are located in quiet residential areas. We generally have great relations with our local neighbors and we want to keep it that way. Please pay particular attention to:

- No loud noises after 9pm. (Includes no Hot Tub use after 9pm)

- Do not roll out trash to the street, trash service will do this
- Do not hang beach towels over railings or leave beach gear outside

The Cities will issue a ticket and a fine for these items. 
No barbeque grills of any kind are permitted on balconies or in the unit. No open flames (i.e., candle burning) are permitted on balconies or in the unit. Do not dismantle smoke detectors as they are there for your protection. Use the overhead stove fan when cooking to avoid accidental, activation of smoke detector alarm.

We utilize third party professional service companies for the provision of Handyman Services, A/C & Heating Repair, Pest Control, Wildlife Removal, Plumbing Repair, Pool & Hot Tub Service, Electrical Repairs, Appliance Repairs and any other repair or maintenance of a technical or specialist nature.  We only used trusted, reputable professional service companies to assess, repair and replace equipment that needs attention. We will work with them to get the first available service appointment. Given the Post COVID economy it can be a challenge to get fast, timely service. Rest assured we will do our best to resolve issues quickly and our service providers understand our need for fast, reliable care.  Due to the global supply crunch, parts and even replacement units may not be available which can be frustrating. Please be patient as we work hard behind the scenes to make small miracles happen on a daily basis!

No one may perform any maintenance work on the home without our specific permission in writing.
Our rates automatically adjust for the season as well as to reflect supply and demand. To access the best rate please begin the booking process on the iTrip Hilton Head site (don't worry you won't be charged until you're ready to book). This will present you our current up-to-date rates!

We want everyone to have a great stay but we understand that things may break or some items may get overlooked. We'll do our best to get them fixed (please review the “Maintenance House Rule” on what this means). 
We do ask that all guests TAKE TIME TO BE KIND.  Common courtesy goes a long way.  Sadly since the pandemic we have all witnessed an increase in aggressive or unacceptable behavior.  Our team has taken a lot of abuse and experienced some very unkind guests.   

Misunderstandings are one of the leading causes of guest complaints. Please make sure you read everything we send to you.  This include the entire rental listing, all of our house rules, all photos, all emails & texts and all the help articles in your iTrip account. This helps avoid misunderstandings in the first place. 
For our own safety and security we have a zero tolerance rule with guests who are rude, abusive, discourteous or argumentative.  We do not engage with those guests any more beyond asking them to read our TAKE TIME TO BE KIND policy.  
Our vacation homes are on a septic tank or a city sewer system. It is important that guests do not put large amounts of toilet paper or any other other products down the toilet.  We flush all toilets prior to a guests arrival to verify that they are working correctly. Any blockages that occur during the guests stay at the home are the responsibility of the guest to unblock. If a plumber is required to unblock a toilet then the guest will be charged $250 for that visit. 
We're available by text from 8am to 8pm. For urgent issues after 8pm please call this number for our After Hours service. They will alert us for urgent issues or leave a note for us for non-urgent issues. In emergency dial 911.

Great Experience!
5/5 stars
We staid here during fall break with our two kiddos (12 and 9) and it was the perfect spot! The property was very clean and as advertised. We were within close walking distance of beach access and restaurants and shops. We will definitely be staying here again!

1697 Bluff Villas, Hilton Head
5/5 stars
The property was clean, very well-kept, and suited us perfectly. We appreciated the amenities and the location, which was central to our school's tennis activities as well as the other social and recreational activities in Sea Pines. We also appreciated the beach gear/chairs that were included. Everything worked and operated as needed and we would definitely return to this rental. The only thing we might comment on for improvement is the mattress in the master - very soft and would love to see a more firm mattress, but that's a matter of preference and not a flaw with the unit. Thank you.
- Jason
Great place!

My wife and I thought that everything was as advertised. Everything worked. Great Internet and TV. Everything was clean - which is very important to us. It was right next to the Salty Dog shops and the beach. We really enjoyed the elevated Adirondack chairs with attached table in between on the balcony. We would stay again!

Great vacation
5/5 stars
We recently spent a week at 1697 The Bluffs. It was terrific. We had everything we needed. The property was just perfect for us. From our balcony we could see the beach through the beautiful live oak tree. It was a short walk to the beach, and we saw pods of dolphins! The Salty Dog was our favorite place to go for a relaxing time and a drink in the evening. It was a pleasure dealing with Peter Moersen at Low Country Coastal Rentals. He was prompt in responding to my questions. Not only do I highly recommend it, but we also hope to come back.
- Dorothy
Very comfortable condo and great location

We had the best time during our stay at the Bluffs Villas! The condo was wonderfully maintained and cozy. The location couldn’t have been more perfect - we were able to walk over to South Beach marina to rent bikes, boat, and access the pool. I can’t recommend this rental enough!

Comfortable and Quiet Stay
4/5 stars
We had a great experience. The place was spacious and comfortable and the overall rental/arrival process was well organized. Also worth noting it was peaceful and quiet during our entire stay. There is beach access just across the street, which was ideal for us, and you can easily hop on the bike path.
- Diana
A Wonderful First Experience
5/5 stars
Although my kids have stayed in Air BnBs before (I'm using the term generically), for my wife and myself this was our first experience. The unit we booked in Hilton Head was exactly as described. A lovely master bedroom, a second bedroom, a good sized living room/dining room with a table for 6, 2 couches and an easy chair. There was also a a small, but well equipped kitchen, which also had a washer dryer unit. We were 5 adults, and felt very comfortable. The unit is located a 3 minute walk to the beach on the sound; and with another 10 minute walk, one can arrive to the Atlantic-facing beach. The property management company, Low Country Rentals, was a pleasure to deal with. Peter was very responsive to emails and phone calls. (To clarify, we only had questions for Peter; there were no issues to solve.)

Lovely Place to Enjoy Nature
5/5 stars
This was our first stay in Hilton Head and we will be back! Our condo had everything we needed including boogie boards, beach chairs, comfortable beds, TV’s in every room, fully stocked kitchen and close to the beach. We saw dolphins every day and amazing wild life. We recommend renting bikes to bike on the beach or get to Tower Beach for sunrise. So close to Salty Dog Cafe, shopping and ice cream. Please know this condo is not handicapped accessible.

Fantastic Condo and Location!
5/5 stars
The condo was exactly as described. Very clean, great updates to the inside, incredibly easy to coordinate our stay and get into the condo, and the location is unbeatable! It's a 2 minute walk to the Salty Dog and the rest of the South Beach Marina, and the beach is 2 minutes away with beach path being directly across the street! I would definitely stay here again.

Nice place to stay
5/5 stars
The renovation that was done on this condo was very nice. It has nice finishes. The king size bed was very comfortable. The sofa was comfortable. The unit had everything we needed. Very short walk to shops around The Salty Dog. We would stay there again.

Minutes walk to beach - great for families
5/5 stars
Beach toys/gear, well-equipped kitchen for simple cooking, and two separate bathrooms make this a great place to stay for a family of four. Walk to quick shop, ice cream, and restaurants, Golf and yummy C'set Bon Bakery (outdoor shaded bench for dining) are a 10 minute drive. Both great for social distancing. Private beach for only residents makes social distancing easy. Recommend grabbing groceries coming in because big retailers are all 20+ minutes away. Kroger, Whole Foods and Target all have curbside pickup.

This villa was absolutely perfect. This was our first time to Hilton Head and we did not know what to expect. The location of the villa is perfect just a short walk to the beach and a short walk to the pool. The villa is beautifully updated and super clean! I literally don't have any complaints! Even the neighbors were super nice! The owner was very good about getting back to me and was very kind. We hope to come back every year!

Excellent Stay. Great Location
5/5 stars
We were here in the second week of August. Excellent location very well kept condo. All basic amenities were provided by the host. It is indeed 3-4 minutes walk to the water. We traveled with kids and they loved every bit of it. You could go for water sports to Harbor Town which is less than 15 minutes drive, fishing boats within Sea Pine, literally 5-7 minutes walk to Salty Dog Marina. Entire Resort by itself is an amazing experience. Nice evening vibe within 5 minutes .

Very nice stay!
5/5 stars
We had a wonderful trip! The only issue we really had was the sheets staying on the king size bed. The fitted sheet was too small. We got a replacement sheet but it was the exact same size and didn’t work either. The router went out once and that was an easy fix but it also caused the air to turn off for a few hours. Other than that everything was great! Thanks again!

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay! Nice condo. My only suggestion would be that kitchen might be little better equipped. Bit as I said, overall we thoroughly enjoyed. And Peter was excellent!!

Awesome location
5/5 stars
We’ve visited Hilton Head many times over the years and this is by far the best location we have stayed. We were able to walk to the beach where it is quite and secluded. If you want a busy beach you can take the trolley to The beach club. We walked to ice cream, dinner and breakfast easily. The townhome is nicely furnished, comfortable and clean. While the kitchen isn’t updated like the baths, this was a none issue for us as we did dinners out- would be fine to cook in but it is small therefore plan accordingly. Sea Pines is a beautiful plantation in Hilton Head- this location is hard to beat!

Great Place to Stay
5/5 stars
Our stay at the Bluffs was wonderful. The condo was clean and in a great location to the beach. They have a printed version of the online information packet that they email to you. It was very helpful in finding places to eat and activities to go do. Set in the beautiful Sea Pines area of HHI, we enjoyed our morning walks around this beautiful community. This is definitely a place that could easily become a second home.

Definately a Do Over!
5/5 stars
This condo was a great fit for our three weeks on HiltonHead. The cleanliness, the location and the size couldn’t have been any better. The only small issue we had was the WiFI kept going out and my husband was working from the condo the whole time we were there. I am sure it had to do with the complex not the unit.

Very clean! Great location - walking distance to Salty Dog, music, pool, bike rental, tennis courts. Easy bike ride to multiple beach access paths. We brought 3 boys, 11, 14, 15. Plenty of space for a few days. We appreciated the white sheets and towels, hardwood/tile floors, simple checkout procedures, washer/dryer. Updated bathrooms, also clean! Quiet location on top floor. We will definitely be back and would love to rent again!

We had such a great time in this condo. It was very nice and CLEAN, which is always important!! Plenty of room for everyone and the beds and couch were very comfy. We were steps away from the beach and amazing sunsets and Salty Dog was just around the corner. We've come to the island plenty of times but this stay was really nice to feel somewhat tucked away in the back of Sea Pines. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for something off the beaten path!!

outstanding property
5/5 stars
We had such a nice vacation in this beautiful property. Located a short walk or bike ride to the beach and walking distance to restaurants, shops, water sports, etc. It was clean and comfortable with everything needed for our weeks stay. We were contacted in advance to get our vehicle pass which made things much easier! We would definitely return!

Wonderful time
5/5 stars
My wife and I rented the Bluff Villa and it was very well appointed and very clean. This villa is very convenient to South Beach area and the public beach. The only concern was being on the third floor without an elevator. This was not an issue since they were half floors. Also Peter was very responsive!!!
- Charles

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. While we do mention the 'no elevator' in the description, perhaps we need to be more clear. We hope that you will consider us again for your next Hilton Head vacation.

Perfect Vacation Rental!
5/5 stars
Our family of 4 loved our villa at the Bluffs. It was very roomy for all of us and was clean, well-decorated, and had all the amenities needed for our stay. We had family also staying at the Bluffs on the 1st floor of another building. It was nice, but not nearly as bright as our 3rd floor apartment. We especially loved the very short walk to the marina, pool and the beach. This made going back and forth very easy with our 5 year-old. It also helped to rent a wagon to haul beach chairs and a cooler. Definitely take advantage of the beautiful bike trails at Sea Pines and enjoy the pizza and ice cream at the marina. There's no doubt that we will visit again, and thank you to Peter M for all the help!

Perfect for our needs
4/5 stars
Would have given it 5 stars, however it's on the top floor and there is no elevator and that was not disclosed to us. Being in our 70's it was difficult to do the stairs everyday and especially difficult when bring in and out luggage, etc. Need to disclose that to future renters.

Highly recommend!
5/5 stars
The pictures do not do this place justice! Nicely decorated. Immaculate. Had everything we needed! Right across a lightly traveled road from the beach and walking distance from The Salty dog and a few shops. Highly recommend that you park your car and rent bikes during your stay. Beautiful bike paths can take you anywhere!
