Newly remodeled bathrooms (whirlpool tub in Master bath) and new flooring throughout make this a beautiful one of a kind villa!! Our villa is spacious, bright and breezy with 1,280 sq. ft. of living space; 2BR and 2 baths. We are located in Colonnade Club which is part of the Shipyard Plantation. Enjoy your morning coffee and connect with nature while sitting on our covered deck overlooking the pond and golf course. Peer over the balcony and observe Blue Herons, Jumping Fish, and Alligators basking in the sun. In our first week staying at the villa we watched a Blue Heron catch a snake, wash it off in the pond and feed it to 2 babies in a nearby nest. Our beautiful view can be seen while relaxing in the living room, enjoying lunch in the dining room or preparing your favorite meal in the spacious, open kitchen. We have the best view in Colonnade!
Our first level Villa with parking right out the front door is very convenient. You'll appreciate how easy and quick it is to bring in luggage or groceries. Colonnade Club pool and Jacuzzi are just around the corner (within view off our deck). It's a short walk to the beautiful white sand beaches of the ocean. Or ride your bike for a quick trip to the beach. Colonnade Club Villas are located at the end of the road so you won't experience the noise and inconvenience of cars driving by.
Our living room has a large picture window, ceiling fan and sliding glass door opening to the deck. Relax in the Master Suite with King Size bed, Ceiling fan, large walk in closet and en-suite bathroom (whirlpool tub/shower). Experience the wonder of lying in bed in the evening or in the morning and listening to the sounds of birds chirping and frogs croaking while observing nature out the large master bedroom picture window. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and an adjacent full newly remodeled bathroom. Our spacious kitchen has new corian countertops and a comfortable breakfast bar. We have a separate laundry room with full size washer and dryer located off the back of the kitchen. Wind down after a fun filled day by listening to your favorite CD or watching a movie on cable or DVD/VCR on one of 3 T.V.s. Keep connected to the outside world (and with grandchildren) with Internet Service.

About: Ron and Mary are both originally from Wisconsin but have called Minnesota home for over 30 years. We came to Hilton Head for the first time in 2009. We did quite a bit of traveling before and since then but something drew us back to Hilton Head Island. We returned for a month in March/April 2011 and decided to purchase a Villa. Mary told Ron (after looking at numerous Villas) that she would know when she saw the right one. She was right - one look at 165 Colonnade and we're confident that this is the perfect villa.
Ron and Mary have been business partners for 16 years. Our company provides residential services to people with developmental disabilities (we own several group homes). We love to travel and are able to handle some of our business responsibilities long distance.
We are not new to purchasing homes but are new to vacation rentals. Ron's sister, Therese, will be helping to manage the Villa. We're excited to learn more about this process and to have family involved in our venture.
We are very active - love running, swimming, triathlons, water skiing, biking, hiking, tennis, softball... Ron is also an assistant High School Wrestling Coach. We pride ourselves in healthy living and are so happy that Hilton Head has a natural food store.
We have 2 adult children, a daughter-in-law and 1 grandson living in Minnesota.
Why Colonnade Club: We chose our villa at 165 Colonnade Club because of the location, accessibility, scenery, and bright, homey feeling. In all our travel we were doing so much work preparing for the vacation that it was really a burden. We are very particular about our trips and accommodations; clean and cheery, lots of activity options with limited driving, etc. We wanted a place that we could count on and know it would meet our expectations every time – that’s 165 Colonnade!
We love Hilton Head Island; it's so easy to get around with or without a car (bike trails cover the Island). There's a huge variety of entertainment and recreational activities. We particularly love the beautiful white sand beach and the ocean with calm waves yet great for boogie boarding. Our experience in the water is that the ocean floor has a gradual pace; no sudden drop offs. The waves are big enough to have fun but won't wash you away. We feel safe watching our young grandson romping and playing in the ocean.
We’ve found 3 tiki bars within walking distance from our Villa. It is a challenge to experience even a small percentage of the over 280 restaurants on the Island.
Hilton Head has convenient access (can drive or fly - your choice). Everything is so handy; bike trails, wonderful golf courses (we are not big golfers but our daughter-in-law went to college on a golf scholarship), amazing tennis courts and fantastic nature (alligators, dolphins, etc).
We fell in love with Shipyard Plantation because it is smaller and more personal. It has beautiful bike paths, not a lot of traffic and a really nice family beach. Shipyard Plantation is centrally located on Hilton Head. You can walk, run or bike to Coligny Plaza (2 miles west) with shops, restaurants, and fun activity on the beach. We also enjoy biking to Chaplin Community Park (4 miles east) where there are beautiful bike paths, playground and picnic areas, soccer fields, tennis courts & nearby beach access.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Colonnade Club is one of Shipyard Plantation’s closest communities to the beach. The scenic path to the beach makes it a nice easy walk, run or bike ride (no streets to cross). We also love the quiet, peaceful atmosphere at Colonnade. We’ve stayed at other locations in Shipyard and have been bothered by the view (fence, parking lot) and the noise (traffic). At Colonnade we find ourselves constantly drawn to the deck to experience the natural surroundings along with viewing an occasional golfer. Cars and disturbing noises do not exist (Colonnade is at the end of the road so only people who are staying here drive this way).
Shipyard Plantation is close, within walking or biking distance to shopping and restaurants (Coligny Plaza) and to the public park (Chaplin community Park) where we like to ride around or play tennis (great courts). There are over 6 grocery stores within 4 miles. When we go to Sea Pines we can bike if we are ambitious (about 6 miles) or take a short drive.
Shipyard is a smaller plantation and has very few tourist attractions. Some of the larger plantations have incorporated shops and tourist attractions within their gates. The security at the Shipyard (it is a gated community) gives us peace of mind and ensures a reprieve from the tourist lifestyle when we want one.
We also enjoy exploring outside of Hilton Head. We like the small artsy community of Bluffton (Farmer's Market on Thurs. with music and good food from various vendors). Savannah is a short 30-45 min. drive and a fun day trip. Beaufort, Charleston, Daufuskie Island, Palmetto Bluffs and many other unique areas surround Hilton Head offering new experiences and opportunities to explore. There's so much to see and do on and off the Island - every trip is a new adventure.
