We had a great week at the ocean in Hilton Head. This villa is as close as you can get. You get to see all the beauty and action on the beach without asking in the sun. We spent a couple hours at the beach or pool each day. But we also enjoyed the convenience of having breakfast, lunch and dinner on the balcony watching the action some days.
The villa is well equipped for two people. It may be tight for four people, particularly with only one bathroom. Parking was easy. The elevator and luggage carts made it easy to move in and move out.
There are plenty of restaurants and shops within a 3/4 mile walk. Even a major grocery store. The only negative was once in a while you could smell smoking from the balcony below us. The furniture is getting a little worn, but everything looked clean. We plan to go back to this same unit next year.

The unit was clean and very cosy. The view was spectacular. We were short of a few things and one of the items was not on the inventory and Beth - in the Vacation Time office - bright one from home. Now that’s service!
- Margaret M. from Toronto, Posted: 05/05/2023
People like Kristin, Michael, Jimmy and Albert at VTTHI reception on Lemoyne Avenue made our return visit worthwhile. They moved our villa immediately because the original was next to a villa being renovated. And the new location was well located and quiet during our entire stay. We have been to Hilton Head Island MANY times and we have always appreciated the friendly and helpful face-to-face services provided by the Vacation Time of Hilton Head Island team. The villa was very nice but could benefit from addition of a dining room table plus a black out curtain over the bedroom window to block out the security light outside. The light over the stove needs to be replaced.

From the moment we arrived until the day we left unit 407 in Ocean Dunes we had a wonderful time. The unit is a perfect get away with everything you need including a very comfortable king sized bed - maybe too comfortable as you almost hate to get up. Being in the 4th floor provides an excellent view of the ocean and beach. So it is very relaxing to sit and read or enjoy a guilt meal.
Ocean Dunes is located on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and shops at Coligny Plaza.
Check in with the staff at Vacation Time is a breeze and they are there to assist with any questions.
All in all it is a great place for a very relaxing vacation.

Unit 407 at Ocean Dunes Villa had a great view and a good location.
The condo was furnished with all the essentials.
The bedroom was small and had not enough storage and could use
- Elisabeth R. from The Woodlands, Posted: 10/23/2022
We stayed for a week in June and absolutely loved the condo. We have been coming to Hilton Head for 7 years and this has been the nicest condo we have stayed in! The grounds were well maintained the condo was clean and the perfect size for my wife and I. The view from the balcony was wonderful and unobstructed. My only complaint was that we had to stop at the office to pick up a key. It would have been nice to have a lockbox or keyless entry. Other than that we will definitely book this condo on our yearly vacation
- Mark H from Perrysburg, OH, Posted: 06/25/2022
The condo was awesome for us. The view and proximity to the beach are excellent.

It was a nice unit. Could have stayed longer.
- Frank S. from Evans, Posted: 05/10/2022
The condo was perfect for my husband and I. The view of the ocean was gorgeous. Loved sitting out on the patio in the morning and watching for dolphins. The kitchen was well stocked for our needs. Our only disappointment is that the pictures on the listing show the pool for the property next door in several photos which makes it seem like that pool is for this property, when in actuality, it is not. The pool for this property is the smaller pool. It wasn't a big deal for us as we love the beach. But if we had been choosing a property for the pool potential we would have been very unhappy.

Had a wonderful stay. Incredible location with beautiful views. Close to everything. First time at Hilton Head and so glad we chose to stay where we did! Will definitely be back!
- Teresa K. from Akron, Posted: 12/19/2021
This unit was exactly as shown. Love the view! Contrary to the previous posts, the mattress is FINE - new and comfy! My only complaint would be the lack of cookware and cooking utensils. I was glad I brought a decent knife and a cookie sheet.
- Anonymous from Jackson, Posted: 11/01/2021
The views from this oceanfront condo were amazing. The condo was equipped with plenty of towels, beach chairs, cabinet in the bathroom for storing all of our toiletries- all the little things that add up to having everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing experience. The bed was comfortable as well. The next time we vacation in Hilton head, we would love to stay here again.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. The owners take great pride in maintaining their villa so their guests enjoy their stay! The mattress has been replaced since you were here. We hope to have you stay with us on your next trip to Hilton Head.

We have been vacationing on HH for 30 years and certainly plan to return for year number 31.
We have dealt with VTHHI for all these years and have never had an issue and love the staff. They have always been most accommodating and make our stay very relaxing and enjoyable.

Best first! Great location and view. Nice updates. Kitchen could use some better utensils. The worst was the bed. Part of the problem seems to be the mattress, very saggy, not comfortable for me (I don't like a hard mattress either just not one that leaves you feeling like you fell in a hole.) could the supports for the bed? Property Manager only wanted to argue with me, did not try to listen to the complaint (they did offer for us to move to another unit but that is not how I wanted to spend 1/2 to 3/4 of a vacation day), and the owner said they just stayed here and it was fine. Not the right response at all. Neither was willing to the feedback and learn from it. I will not return to either this property or one managed by this group - Vacation Time Hilton Head
- Walter V T. from Clemmons , Posted: 06/21/2020
As we all know the comfort of a mattress is a very personal thing. We offered to move the guest twice to another unit with a mattress that suited his taste. He would not move and wanted us to pro-rate his stay based on the number of hours he spent in the bed. 9 hours per day. He was very unreasonable and impossible to make happy.
The owners have replaced the mattress in September 2021

This was our 5th stay with Vacation Time and our 2nd time staying in Unit 407 Ocean Dunes. The attraction for us is the ideal location on the water with everything so handy near-by, restaurants of every description. We can walk most everywhere rather than driving which makes it an ideal location. We find Unit 407 perfect for our wants and needs. It is very clean and open. We love sitting on the balcony and watching the parade of people going by on the beach everyday. It is our true Happy Place. We have already booked for a month again next year, can hardly wait.
- Mike and Verna P. from Oakville, Posted: 11/19/2019
Mike and Verna, thank you so much for your nice review and your continued business. We look forward to seeing you as well every year. Thanks again.

Very nice condo, spectacular ocean-front view, very nice and clean inside, many recent updates. Will certainly stay again! Only negative was that the A/C unit in the living room was loud.
- Greg S. from Cincinnati, Posted: 10/22/2019
Great location and overall facility! Appliances appeared new. Hate to offer a negative but they need to replace the mattress.
- Philip P. from Worthington, Posted: 10/15/2019
Everything was handled professionally. We did not have any issues. We had a problem with the TV and it was handled quickly. The unit was in immaculate condition.

We had a fabulous time. Micheal was so helpful !! Will
Definitely stay here again when I am able too.
- Veronica W. from Columbia, Posted: 08/08/2019
The suite is nice, front view of the ocean, balcony, ACs, strong shower, full kitchen. Only one thing was disappointing: dark bedroom. Anyway, all other items were good and this suit is worth the money. Also, the location is in the middle of everything with free parking which makes another plus.
- Piotr T. from Cliffside Park, Posted: 07/22/2019
This is a great vacation rental right on a beautiful beach and the condo had everything you need to be comfortable on vacation. The view from the balcony is awesome and the condo stays nice and cool which is awesome when you come in from a day at the beach. It was also easy to run-up to the room if you forget something once you got to the beach. The pool is nice, small but you don't really need more. The pool at the Hilton next door is very close to the condo so expect noise on the balcony until at least 10pm when I pool closed. The biggest drawback is the bed, its very old, uncomfortable and squeaks with every move. It would be a perfect place if the bed got updated. I would recommend bringing your own pillows and a blanket as the comforter on the bed is fairly worn and stained so I didn't feel comfortable using it.
- Anonymous from Holly Springs, Posted: 07/08/2019
Great place and location! A new bed would have made it a 5 star stay!
- Karen M. from Fort wayne, Posted: 05/24/2019
Always a pleasure to visit HH and the terrific staff at VTHH.
- Ronald B. from Yarmouth, Posted: 04/25/2019
Unit 407 was clean, comfortable and simply decorated. I loved that it was not full of fake plant and flower arrangements and beachy wall decor. It was simple and light. Very calm beach attitude. We have been visiting HHI and staying at Ocean Dunes for 25 years and have seen many changes to the surrounding property particularly the Hilton Ocean Oak next door. I would like to suggest that for those of us who visit from October to April that it would be very nice to have a heated pool and a hot tub would also be great.
- Michael K. from Toronto, Posted: 04/06/2019
First the staff leaned over backwards to help us from beginning to end. The unit is really laid out well with a great view. The location in HH is great for us as our dinning favorites are near by. We stayed for a month, the place was really clean and everything worked except the dishwasher, it was serviced in 24 hrs and repaired. The agents also helped us with dining and helped us get some great deals on golf.
- Clifford O. from Mt. Airy, Posted: 03/17/2019
We rented this oceanfront unit in January, and the weather was COLD! That didn't stop us from riding bicycles on the beach (with down jackets on) and visiting a public sculpture exhibit at the Coastal Discovery Museum.
What can I say about Ocean Dunes #407? Very conveniently located, nicely appointed and clean. Has a great shower and the appliances all do their job adequately. Great views of the beach and ocean from the third floor. TINY bedroom...the king bed makes it feel even smaller, but we didn't spend a lot of time there!!
Ocean Dunes is at least 30 years old but seems to be very well maintained, especially considering the harsh weather conditions on the coast.
- Benjamin or Mary H. from Boone, Posted: 01/31/2019
We greatly enjoyed our month long stay in Unit 407. The Unit was very clean, was well equipped and above all it was very comfortable - just like home. The view of the beach and ocean from the balcony was wonderful.
What we truly love about the location is how accessible everything is. Easy walking distance to Coligny Plaza, where there is an abundance of good resturants and shops.
The folks (Michael, Stephanie and others) at the Vacation Time office were most helpful. They were able to accomodate our friends at the last minute.
We enjoyed everything so much we have already booked for the same time next year.
- Mike and Verna P. from Oakville, Posted: 11/24/2018
Ocean Dunes 407 is eye-appealing, clean, and has a spectacular view. The blue and white color scheme is very pretty. We enjoyed eating at the many restaurants, especially Michael Anthony's. We would highly recommend this condo and dealing with Vacation Time.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, Posted: 07/16/2018
We were very pleased with our experience. The location was great! The condo was clean and exactly as pictured. We would definitely stay here again if it were just the two of us.
- Melissa C. from Severn, Posted: 07/09/2018
Accurate property description, clean and well-maintained, awesome customer service-friendly and helpful. All was wonderful, except it was a construction zone--good thing the beach was only 2 minutes away! May want to ask if construction is completed prior to booking.
- Maria M. from Tucson, Posted: 05/21/2018
Loved this condo. It was very clean and well organzied. The only problem we had was that the bed was too high for my husband to use as he has Parkinsons Disease and is not able to climb into a high bed. We used the sofa bed all week and found it to be quite comfortable. Doubt that we will rent this unit again because of the bed.
- Carole R. from Bradenton, Posted: 05/01/2018
This was our 27th year vacationing in Hilton Head and all of our stays have been made possible through Vacation Time of Hilton Head.
Once again this year we were not disappointed and have already booked our 2019 return to HH and with Vacation Time.
The office staff has always been terrific and responsive to any concerns we've had (which have been very minimal over our 27 years).
I would give our experience 6 stars if that was an option.
- Ronald B. from Yarmouth, Posted: 04/20/2018

This was probably the most relaxing vacation that I have had in many years. The accommodations were perfect. The view from the balcony was amazing. My family and I have stayed at Ocean Dunes in the past, and had an enjoyable experience. My wife has since passed away from cancer, but most of her family is in the area of Hilton Head. A combination of the total solar eclipse and what would have been my wives 60th birthday. I decided to make the trip from NH, to celebrate her birthday with her family. I am not a hot weather person and I don't usually go to the beach. That being said, I was able to spend quality time with my in-laws as well as some much needed alone time. Most of my alone time was spent on the balcony, listening to the sounds of the surf and enjoying a wonderful sea breeze. Everything was perfect. I will return.
- Robert S. from Swanzey, Posted: 08/30/2017
This space was just lovely and relaxing. Obviously updated and well cared for. Lots of touches that you would enjoy in your own home. Bed was very comfortable and it was so quiet inside, well insulated from the sound of neighbors. Nice view and you just couldn't beat the location!

We had fantastic vacation. The room and view were great. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and having a coffee or tea was awesome. The people at vacation time were great to deal with and very helpful-Michael, Stephanie & Jimmie did a great job. We have already booked for next feb/18. Everything you needed for your stay was there. Décor was great. Thank for a great stay.
- Donna and Dave R. from Ajax, Posted: 03/03/2017
The condo was exactly as described and the photos on the listing were accurate. The place actually exceeded our expectations and was perfect. It's perfect for two people. The view is amazing, the photos do it no justice. We spent a lot of time on the balcony. The beach and pool are just a quick walk downstairs. I also really like the location. We were near a lot of great restaurants and it was very convenient to grocery stores, pharmacies, and things like that you may need during your stay. We really enjoyed Coligny Plaza and Reilly's Plaza. We were there to celebrate the New Year and my birthday and it was a perfect getaway! Cannot wait to go again and will definitely stay at the same place.
- Amy L. from Winterville, Posted: 01/04/2017
We had wonderful weather. Our stay was very relaxing. We walked the beach most days and ate a lot of seafood. We will be back.
- David C. from Bristol, Posted: 11/09/2016
The condo was great. Newly redone and felt like home away from home. Very comfortable throughout. From the tall chairs and table on the balcony - IMO key so you can see over the railing and not be looking through the railing. Al the living room furniture was high quality and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with all the usual stuff. Bathroom was a nice size and a great shower.
Bedroom had a lot of storage and the king sized bed was pretty good - but it may be time for a new mattress (they don't last forever).
Overall I would give it 4 stars, out of 5.
The bads: The TV's are a joke. Neither of them worked, at all. The air conditioner in the bedroom about drove me crazy. It runs all-the-time! It would shut off for 45 seconds - then turn back on. But, that being said, I would go back tomorrow!
- Harry R. from Davidson, Posted: 10/11/2016
This is the first time we have stayed in a condo at HH. We usually rent a house thinking that a condo would be noisy. This place was very quite and the perfect location.

Awesome decor, all the amenities you could ask for, and a beautiful view from the top floor. Our only complaint was the construction next door that vacation rentals failed to mention. Other than that, it was absolutely beautiful.

- Anonymous from Denver, Posted: 04/26/2016
This is a very nice condo of which we hope to stay in again in the future. However, major construction going on next door that starts at 7 am and goes to 5pm. Not very relaxing. Balcony is unusable during the day and you can't leave the door open during the day. Vacation Time graciously gave some $ off our stay because of the construction. We were told construction would be completed in September. Condo is well maintained and clean. Bed and living room furniture are very comfortable. They could use additional plates and bowls. This is a wonderful condo and will be fantastic after September!

- Chessi P. from Paintsville, Posted: 09/20/2015
The condo is beautiful and clean. The furnishings made the condo's ambience very relaxing and homey. The shower is amazing! the view was awesome but since construction is going on it did put a bit of a damper on the view when you are looking straight down. Access to beach and pool was a bit more difficult due to construction but the new pool is really nice. Condo needs more dishes and glassware. Overall, it was a great condo to be in, clean and new furnishings.
- Mai N. from Mason, Posted: 09/15/2015
This place is top notch. We couldn't have asked for anything else. The only complaint was the girls wanted a full length mirror. The color scheme and cleanliness was perfect. We plan to return to this very specific condo in the future.
- Michael C. from Colbert, Posted: 08/05/2015
We have stayed here 4 times now. This was the best unit we have ever stayed in. Everything was new. The view was great. This was stocked with everything we needed. Only issues we ran into was construction started at 7:30 and woke us up every morning, and 4th floor, was a climb due to elevator being slow & used alot.
- Cynthia M. from Mt Gilead, Posted: 06/29/2015
Recently remoded granite countertops, large shower,quality towels N tasteful furnishings. Particularly liked beach chairs umbrella provided. ButWe had brought our own wish we'd have known. Kurig and traditional coffe pot provided.
Lots of glassware but limited silverware could be reminded by better inventory at check out. Highly recommend this rental unit .

We have stayed at Ocean Dunes for several years. It was really nice to see most of the rooms. The owners did a fabulous job with this unit. It's beautifully done! We love the location and use of the fitness center is a plus! The building and grounds are always kept very clean. We'll be back next year and are excited to see all the new changes with the grounds and new pool. The only complaint would be the person smoking cigars outside, making it not very pleasureable to use our balcony (we were down wind). Thank you to a very professional and accomodating staff at Vacation Time!!
- Anonymous from Jamestown, Posted: 06/08/2015
We have visited Ocean Dunes for 5 years now and have stayed in several rooms, but this updated unit is the best yet. King bed, flatscreen TV's, granite counters, tile walk-in shower, what more can I say. Clean, clean, clean and oh, did I say clean. Great
unobstructed view of the ocean off the large balcony. Stephanie @ VTHHI did it again my making our stay comforting with easy check and out! ... It goes to say, we will return.
