Barony Beach new look

The first two buildings of renovations are now complete at Barony Beach Club in Hilton Head. Two more buildings are scheduled to be done before Christmas. The rest will be done next fall.

The look is actually quite nice. Very clean and tasteful. Really like the large print of the Hilton Head lighthouse in the living area... adds something unique.

At first glance, I was taken back by the "plastic/laminate" dining room table. But I've actually decided it was a very wise choice. Easy to wash and maintain and will be able to standup to the heavy use.

The second bathroom, in many ways, is nicer than the master. Stunning tile and shelving!

One very minor comment about the master bathroom. The shower room is big. The towel rack is on the wall opposite from the shower (a long way fro the shower when you are wet). There is no place to hang a towel next to the shower. A small hook beside the shower door would be nice.

Again, very impressed.

I've submitted photos to the review side of TUG. Hope this link works for others:

The link isn't working for me. Would be very interested in seeing the pics. Don't see your review either.

Do you have a picture of the new master shower?

Because of the room configuration, I just can't get a decent shot of the room. Here's the shower (attached) Opposite wall is the toilet and towel rack.

Great pictures. This looks very nice! Is this the Ocean Front buildings? Was the refurb for Ocean Front and Garden? and next year the Ocean View?

Want to visit and see the new look.

Thanks so much for the pictures and reports! While we were there in October we saw them working in the Morning Glory building. I'm really looking forward to our next visit and seeing a completed unit. :)

Here's a property map, and this is from the GM's recent newsletter:
It’s with great pleasure that I share an update about the upcoming refurbishment, currently scheduled for October 2015 thru December 2015 and will include refurbishment of the Gardenia Building (9100), Jasmine Building (9200) and Morning Glory Building (9400). Then, from October 2016 thru December 2016 refurbishment will occur in the Bayberry Building (9300), Live Oak Building (9500) and Sea Oat Building (9600).

One garden building and one ocean view building were finished a couple of weeks ago. Work is now underway on the second garden building and a second ocean view building. They are supposed to be ready for Christmas week. That means more than half of the property will be finished soon. Again, the remaining three buildings will be done next fall.

I heard someone here describe it as "modern, but not contemporary." While everyone has their own favorite colors and taste, I think most will like it.

Got the link to work. As a representative of Gen Y, I love the look of the refurbished units. Only thing I don't like is the color of the wood on the kitchen cabinets - doesn't really go with the rest. Overall though, looks great. Good for us as we'd like to buy a week at this resort.

It appears that perhaps they didn't replace the cabinets? Cabinets are usually a 15 to 20 year product. They wouldn't need to replace these every 10 years when they do a hard goods refurb. They often just reface them or do nothing. They could perhaps paint them, but that probably wouldn't hold up well in a timeshare. I suspect that they replace the cabinets every two hard good cycles. If they are new, I do think the color could have been better. Should have matched the dining room chairs with the darker wood.

The cabinets are not new. These are the original light wood color. I agree that they do not blend well with the dark wood on the outside of the kitchen bar.

The pics look great. I borrowed some bathroom renovation ideas from a blog from better living dispenser http://www.dispenser.com/blog/organ...-hotel-bathroom-ideas-to-incorporate-at-home/. Tiles add a classic beauty to your bathroom, it works well with any kinds of bathroom styles, be it modern or classic. Buying some caddies for your bathroom would be a good idea as it will get rid of a large amount of clutter from the bathroom and make the bathroom look more spacious.
