About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Shelter Cove Villa. Completely Renovated. Well-Appointed, Perfectly Situated Unit. This bright and airy second-floor Harbourside I villa offers AMAZING HARBOR VIEWS from its balcony. Shelter Cove is a Mediterranean-style village located on the harbor across the street from Palmetto Dunes. More than a dozen restaurants and boutiques line the beautifully landscaped marina, where you can walk to breakfast, lunch or dinner; enjoy live music; shop; rent a boat or a kayak or book a fishing or a sightseeing excursion. Or just kick back, enjoy your wine or coffee, throw fish or steaks on the grill, all-the-while enjoying the incredible sunset views amongst the bright flowers and host of private yachts.

Best of both worlds: Shelter Cove offers everything from fine dining to family-orientated water-front cafes and Mexican fare. Guests of this villa can walk downstairs for a cup of coffee glass of wine at Bistro 17, enjoy a white-tablecloth meal inside at La Fontana, take advantage of great Happy Hour offerings at La Fontana Waterfront Grille or catch spectacular sunset dining views at outdoor tables at Scott's or the Ella's Marina Restaurant, all within sight of the villa. On Tuesday nights, the balcony is the place to be as Shelter Cove becomes the island's most popular destination with free live music and fireworks. But all back to peace and quiet by 10:00 p.m. Fun and relaxing at the same time: The best of both worlds.

Completely Renovated: The bright and airy second-floor villa has floor-to-ceiling windows; a newly renovated kitchen with granite, tumbled stone and European stainless-steel appliances; tile floors throughout the common area; newly carpeted bedrooms, and updated bathrooms. The master bedroom with a king-sized bed overlooks the harbor, while the front bedroom, with two full-sized beds, overlooks the pool area. The den has a huge 50' Panasonic flat-screen plasma TV with an advanced-component sound system that includes AppleTV and iPod/mp3 player hookups, so you can listen to your own music on this awesome system. The dining room table seats six, while the breakfast bar accommodates another three for meals. An outdoor high-top table on the covered balcony is the best location for sunset gatherings or early-morning coffee. Overall, the upscale decor has a beach theme using sunset colors, wicker, glass and a mix of light woods against newly painted neutral walls. Calm and relaxing feel, through and through.

So much to do...without a car: Nowhere on the island offers more to do, without driving anywhere! Enjoy the building's private pool, located within the gated grounds. And since Shelter Cove is part of Palmetto Dunes, guests have access to Palmetto Dunes for beach, golf (2 courses) and tennis (fees apply for golf & tennis). Guests also have use of the owner's four new 26' beach bikes for the duration of their stay. Beach access for Shelter Cove guests is a one-mile bike ride away along paths under 278 and through Palmetto Dunes, or it can be accessed by car or the Palmetto Dunes Beach Buggy. The Buggy is a free shuttle service available to Shelter Cove guests during season that takes you to the beach, the grocery store or the mall, so you don't have to step foot in your car from the time you arrive until you are ready to depart. Within five minute walk from the villa, you have access to dining, entertainment, canoeing, kayaking, dolphin cruise, sunset cruise, dinner cruise, charter fishing and much much more!

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Cove (Hilton Head Island, SC, USA):
Shelter Cove can be so many different things--all depending on your mood: It's Festive and Fun; or it's Quiet and Romantic; or it's an Adventure on the water; or... And you get to change your mind every day about what you want it to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Terrific mid-island location in Palmetto Dunes Plantation. Bike/walking paths everywhere. On-the-water location. Restaurants and shops all around in a Mediterranean Village setting, Palmetto Dunes 'Dunes Buggy' for free transportation--many guests don't get back into their cars until it's time to leave the island.
