All villas are non-smoking and all offer wireless internet.

There are no dedicated 1BR or Studio villas ,all are lock offs. 16 are found in Buildings 11/12 which comprises the Live Oak Lodge - home to the Front Desk and Big Murgie's Den. The lodge is the only area which has elevators or HC access.

Due to local building codes there are no ground level villas- all are one story off the ground. There are no dedicated 2BR villas or GV's that are HCA. No other building besides #11/12 has elevator access.

Buildings #23, 25 & 26 have pool view balconies.

The resort offers a wide variety of activities for all ages and has a large recreational staff. While there is no full service restaurant onsite, there is a snack bar near the pool and another at the Beach House. The resort does offer buffet style meals (shrimp boil and BBQ) at times. There are about 300 restaurants to choose from at HH and several are within easy walking distance of the resort.

Other activities are canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, crabbing, crafts, cooking, wine/cheese, golfing, tennis, shelling, water skiing, wake boarding, parasailing, horseback riding, Kid's Night Out, Dolphin Cruises and others. Many are offered year round. There are also many outlet stores nearby, as well as an assortment of boutique shops on the island.

Right from the resort, in the nearby marsh, Dolphin have been seen feeding with the changing tides, river otter play in the sea grasses and a family of 5 manatees has been sighted feeding behind the resort.

Thanks, Doc! I wish I were there now! Only 11 months to go before we get to go "home" again!

BWVDenise 07-04-2002 12:46 PM

are all 2 BR units the same size??
Last week we were in Bldg 18 and the week before we were in Bldg 15. The view from 15 was much nicer than the view from 18 and it seemed to us that the master bedroom and kitchen/living room were a little bit bigger in Bldg 15. Was this our immagination? We also had a bigger porch in Bldg 15.

WebmasterDoc 07-04-2002 01:04 PM

There are certainly different balcony configurations. Most 2BR's have no balcony for the 2nd BR, but a few do (buildings 14 and 15). Some have balconies which extend from the kitchen nook window to the master BR window. Most extend only from the living room door to the master BR door.

While I have not been in all of the 2BR villas ( ;) ), I don't think there is much - if any- variation in the size of any of the individual rooms.

Lodge 1 BR
This is the first time we have been assigned a room in the lodge. I requested smoking with a marsh view and was given #1128. The view is the best that we have had. We have an unobstructed view of the marsh as well as of the development across the way.

My family loves the convenience of the lodge, even factoring in the walk to the pool.

As Doc said in another thread, the resort is fully booked, yet it still seems uncrowded. Last night's fireworks were a very good show, but it produced a true traffic jam in HH!

Well, time to pack. I'm off to OKW, "the one true DVC resort!"

Doc, thanks for the GREAT info on HH!!! I printed up your original post for reference when making ressies in Late Auguest for a late March trip! I find your knowledge of HH to be extremely helpful--thanks!

One other quick "stat" I'd be interested in knowing is what HH is like during thanksgiving week. Have you ever been there then? Is it usually full or pretty quiet? What about weather if you've been there then.



PamOKW 07-05-2002 11:20 AM

Doc, thanks for mapping out another resort!

What is a lock off room? Is this connecting rooms. What is the best location for having three kids who want to be by the pool?

WebmasterDoc 01-06-2005 10:31 AM

Lock-offs are a 1BR villa and Studio with a connecting door that would create a 2BR villa. Since there are only 21 with this configuration, they are almost always reserved only as a 1BR or a Studio. I have asked to reserve a lock-off and have been told they will not reserve 2BR's that way. Since some are handicap accessible, if a HCA 2BR is required, then they would have to provide a lock-off since none of the dedicated 2BR villas are accessible.

Just make a request to be near the pool. There are only a few buildings that actually look out over the pool area, but the resort is rather compact and none of the buildings are far from anything at the resort.

Thank you so much for posting this info. It is exactly what I have been trying to find out about HHI!!!

I read so many positive posts about it. I just can't wait for my family to get our chance to experience it this summer!

Thanks again!

I have a question. :flower: Are the 2 bedrooms in the lodge the only ones accessible by elevator? Are there any dedicated two bedrooms in buildings with elevators. I think I understood from WebmasterDoc's post that there are not. If this is so then the second bedroom is a studio with the a queen bed and a pull out couch? Is this right?

WebmasterDoc 04-28-2005 08:53 PM

The ONLY accessible villas are in buildings 11 and 12 (the lodge). The HCA 2BRs are lock-offs and will have a queen and sleep sofa in the 2nd BR. The lodge is the only area served by an elevator at the resort. All other villas are up at least one flight of stairs - even for the first floor villas.

I hope this helps!

TammyAlphabet 04-28-2005 09:45 PM

Thanks Doc, just didn't want to be surprised.

Pootle 04-29-2005 02:56 AM

My thanks also - I'm going to HH for the 1st time in October and you've told me so many things I wanted to know

Kathy2130 04-29-2005 08:19 AM

Studio beds
Do all the studios have a queen bed and a sleep sofa? I'm hoping for 2 queens...
