Property description


Upscale...rennovated and redecorated in Spring 2012 with Italian tile flooring, granite countertops, many updates and redecorating. PLUS everything you need to make your vacation wonderful!! We even supply the beach bag, beach chairs and beach towels! Open floor plan (every room has a harbour view)...Free WiFi...Double jacuzzi tub under skylights. This villa offers an absolutely spectacular view of the harbour. Two master suites. You will have a 'one of a kind' vacation stay. This will be your best vacation ever! Read on to see why.....

THIS IS WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHER RENTALS: This unit is our second home and has all the amenities you would expect to find if you were staying at the lovely home of a close family friend. Units managed by rental agencies seem inhospitable and uncomfortable. Our unit is privately managed because we want our family, friends, and guests to be completely comfortable and have the best vacation experience ever. We don’t strip our condo bare. We have beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, etc. In addition, units managed by rental agencies remove food of any sort (this even includes salt and pepper!) We offer essentials that allow you to immediately relax and get in vacation mode. It is stocked with some or all of the following: Soft drinks, snacks, salt, pepper, sugar, artificial sweetener, cereal, cooking oil, coffee, non-dairy creamer, etc.

My family has vacationed in Hilton Head for 20 years. After we discovered Harbourside and Shelter Cove, we NEVER stayed ocean front again! The Harbour has it all!! This villa is gorgeous and the open floor plan gives every room a spectacular view. Immediately when you open the front door you are 'up close and personal' with the water and beautiful yachts! Combine the view with this designer decorated, well appointed condo, and you will never want to leave!

There is so much to do at Shelter Cove Harbour! You can take a stroll along the harbor and look at all the beautiful yachts and boats. On the first level of the complex there are over 30 shops and restaurants. The Marina features Hilton Head Island's largest deep-water yacht basin. Every conceivable water sport may be enjoyed here, from deep-sea and inshore fishing charters to sport crabbing, sail and power boat rentals, sightseeing and nature excursions and dinner cruises. Shelter Cove is the center of evening activities. Harbourfest is held from April until the end of August and has exhibits, vendors, entertainment, and loads of fun for the entire family. Shannon Tanner is an island tradition and has been performing at Shelter Cove for almost 20 years and has two shows nightly. The theater and the islands only indoor shopping mall are only steps away! The beach is less than a mile away--an easy walk or bike ride. Or, since Harbourside is a part of Palmetto Dunes (the premier resort on the island) take advantage of Palmetto Dunes free transportation, the Dunes Buggy, an air conditioned van which will pick you up at your door and deliver you to the beach, mall, or any Palmetto Dunes properties FREE of charge. When you are ready to return, simply give the shuttle a call.

Beach access is at either of Palmetto Dunes two beach houses. Stroll along three miles of uncrowded beach. Enjoy Hilton Head Canoeing or kayaking on 11 miles of winding lagoons teeming with wildlife. Rent a bike and cruise over miles of paved bike paths or enjoy a little beach cycling along the shore. Or simply relax and soak up the rays.

Take advantage of our 'friends and family' vacation style and let our home become yours for a few days or weeks. I feel certain that you will want to come back again and again!

Owner info

About the owner: I am a public school teacher/administrator. My husband (of 35+ years) owns a financial services business.

Why the Owner Chose Shelter Cove (Hilton Head Island, SC, USA):
My family and I have vacationed on Hilton Head Island since 1988. In the mid 1990's, just by chance, we stayed at Harbourside in Shelter Cove. We fell in love with Shelter Cove and all it has to offer. The best dining is on the harbour, the best entertainment is on the harbour, the best shopping is right here! Everything is steps from your door. There is nowhere else like it! We love it here.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The harbor is the center of activity for Hilton Head Island. Shannon Tanner performs nightly and is great entertainment for all ages, but especially young children. Harbourfest is held during the summer and has exhibits, vendors, entertainment and weekly firework displays. The restaurants have great food as well as live entertainment. Every type of water sport is available here—dinner cruises, crabbing, kayaking, night shark fishing, etc. Nothing is better than watching a beautiful sunset over the harbor. The harbor is well lit and perfect for evening walks or bike rides (the rest of the island has very low lighting). Everything you need is right here—and the beach is just a mile away!
