About the property

Villa on Golf Course, Near Beach & Tennis, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom townhouse villa is located in the Heart of Palmetto Dunes, a Conde Nast top 50 resort, with three nationally acclaimed golf courses, one of which was voted the top in South Carolina. The villa was professionally redecorated in 2016 and overlooks the acclaimed Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, where you can watch or take golf lessons daily, hit range balls, putt around freely or enjoy a free golf exhibition every Monday. Golf Pro Doug Weaver is available for golf lessons if you need a few tips. Junior clinics are affordable. The 10th hole on the course is one of the only 2 oceanfront holes on the island, with a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean. You'll enjoy putting or hitting balls for free as your dinner cooks on the grill a golf ball throw away.

The villa is a five minute walk from the world recognized Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, where you can enjoy a free hour of tennis or pickle ball daily and a free tennis exhibition every Monday. The Tennis Center is ranked 5th in the world by Tennis Resorts Online and 1st in the Carolinas by Tennis Magazine. Tennis Magazine has included it in the 50 top tennis resorts. Tennis buffs are invited participate in local tournaments, including weekly round robins, and the pros offer a daily clinic for everyone. The owners have paid for you to have an hour of free tennis at the Tennis Center daily as well as playing free after 6 p.m. Beautiful public courts also are within a 5 minute drive.

You easily can walk or bike ride to the beach on paved paths. Also, the Dunes Buggy free shuttle will transport you and your beachgear to and from the Dunes House at the beach, where you can relax with cocktails, food, and even a guitarist in the summer. Chairs, sail boats, surfboards, paddle boards and beach kayaks are some of the recreational beach toys for rent on the beach.

Rated the number 1 Family Resort in the U.S. and Canada by Travel & Leisure Family, Palmetto Dunes is an all inclusive place to stay where the entire family will enjoy exploring by foot or bike. The resort has an easily accessible, relaxing 11 mile lagoon for canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Palmetto Dunes Outfitters is just a 5 minute walk away where you affordably can rent bikes, arrange kayaking trips in the 11 miles of waterway throughout Palmetto Dunes, take surf lessons and even sign up for fishing trips and dolphin watches. You can walk from the villa to a fishing area, so bring your pole.

The villa was redecorated in 2016 and contains everything one would need for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation but also includes free WiFi for those needing to stay in touch. The villa is decorated with art from SC artists and has modern amenities such as a 55' LED SMART tv in the family room, flat screen tv's in each bedroom, granite kitchen countertops, a BBQ grill and ceiling fans in case you choose to open windows to catch the ocean breeze while you sleep. The villa comfortably sleeps 8.

The master bedroom located downstairs has a king sized memory foam mattress set, huge closets, a 32' flat screen TV and a private bath. The master bedroom also has a sliding glass door accessing the spacious deck, which like the den, overlooks the Trent Jones Golf Course.

The guest bedrooms are both upstairs and share a bathroom. The first guest bedroom has two sets of bunk beds, a flat screen TV and DVD. The second guest bedroom has a king bed and flat screen tv. The bedrooms and living areas are spacious, so you won't feel on top of one another. The carpet upstairs is berber and professionally cleaned. Downstairs is all tile floors.

All bedrooms and the living area have a beautiful view of a large old oak tree and the golf course. The villa has a spacious deck and beautiful back yard where children can roam freely without worry, night or day while adults can stay inside or on the deck if they prefer. The yard is perfect for hide and seek, manhunt, wiffleball, skateboarding on the golf cart parking area, or hitting range balls. There is a sand trap and putting green just outside the back door you can use for free. There are nearby fishing spots in the pond and lagoon.

The gourmet kitchen will entice you to cook on vacation. The dining area has a large table to comfortably seat 6 hungry guests, but on warm evenings, you may prefer eating outdoors on the spacious and scenic deck, conveniently situated off the living area with a large dining table comfortably seating 6 and a BBQ grill, all in the shade of a large oak tree.

The villa has access to 5 free pools. The closest pool is just 30 steps off the deck. The driving range is even closer. The golf course club house is a 3 minute walk down a paved path and the tennis courts are just 2 minutes further. It takes only 7 minutes to walk to the beach, taking paved paths the whole way. You may decide to ride bikes to the beach or call the Dunes Buggy for a free ride. You and your children will love the easy access to the General Store, next to the clubhouse, where you may choose to eat breakfast or lunch on the viranda. The General Store boats the best fried chicken on the island. Kids love the candy selection. Morning folks love the coffee selection. Near there, you also can rent bikes, add to your fishing gear or rent kayaks.

The free 'Dunes Buggy' shuttle service runs March through September and easily transports you directly from your doorstep to the beach, grocery store, or Shelter Cove, where you will find local festivals, shopping, dining and other entertainment. Enjoy the Harbor Fest in Shelter Cove during the summer season and every Tuesday night enjoy the fireworks display and music by local musicians!! There is a comedy club in Shelter Cove worthy of a visit, and yes it is family friendly, and also there is a playhouse at the entrance of Shelter Cover. Many great restaurants are at the edge of Palmetto Dunes for an easy walk, bike ride, Uber or Dunes Buggy ride home.

On rainy days, try the outlet mall or world class spa within walking distance at the Marriott. Lava Fitness is nearby and allows you to use the gym on a paid daily basis. You can use the gym and indoor pool at the Marriott Oceanfront for free any day you purchase a spa treatment, manicure or pedicure.

About Jane Downey

We are beachgoers who enjoy the golf course, 11 mile lagoon, tennis, surfing, SUP, bike paths and close dining and shopping Hilton Head has to offer. We hope you will visit our villa more than once and treat it as your home away from home.

Jane Downey purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jane Downey chose South Carolina

What a great beach, perfect for those not wanting to hunt kids in large waves. Who can surpass the golf, tennis, boating and restaurants Hilton Head offers? If you crave a historical setting, both Charleston and Savannah are about an hour away, an easy day trip. Airports are convenient. People are friendly. No trip to Hilton Head would be complete without a visit to the outlet malls.

What makes this villa unique

Beach condos tend to be 'hit or miss' with some having dated furnishings. We hired a professional designer to update our villa in 2016. Although Hilton Head boasts many delicious restaurants, sometimes a family and friends gathering at home is more memorable, particularly on the setting of our back deck with the golf course as our back yard. We have an active family and Palmetto Dunes has everything for us to enjoy from a relaxing day on the beach to surfing, kayaking, biking, golfing, enjoying free tennis and walking on trails. Winter snowbirds tend to love the location and amenities of our villa.

The property was nicely decorated and well maintained. We were very pleased with our stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good experience with the property. We choose this unit as it had three bedrooms which worked out well with our three teenagers. The unit was nicely decorated and well maintained. It also had some nice extras like three bikes, a gas grill, beach chairs, etc.

This villa is breathtaking. My family and I were so impressed, we will come back.

  • 5 of 5

This villa was in a center of everything. My boys and nephew were never bored. The pool was so close and the boys could call for the dune buggies to take them to the beach. My family were very impressed on how big and nice this place was, I am so glad I found this place, because I know I would have never found a hotel this lovely. We will be back.

Better book right away!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a perfect location for all kinds of fun! We always enjoy our time in Palmetto Dunes, but this was by far the best stay yet. The condo is updated and nicely decorated. It has all the amenities that a family could want. It has plenty of room for large families to gather or to spread out and get a bit of "elbow room". The access to golf, the pools, the lagoons, the beach was super. I cannot wait to return. If you are thinking about booking, you better do it right away. This one will not remain a secret long.

A little bit of "puffing" going on

  • 3 of 5

The layout of the condo was adequate and quite spacious, but finding the front entry door in the confusing layout of the neighborhood was frustrating. The door out the back kitchen led to where the garbage cans were stored. Not pretty.

, The pictures shown on the webpage featured the GOLF COURSE and March area with water. Actually , it edged on the end of the driving range of the course, and there was a sewer drain surrounded by some fencing that took away from the beauty. The live oaks around the deck was lovely!

For the dollars charged, it was a bit overpriced. A lot of delayed maintenance should be done/dated. It was clean. Flora's was a fine Italian restaurant just 1.5 miles away, and you can't beat the Sea Shack. Don't get the grouper - overcooked.

We biked to the beach and the tennis center was a bot of a walk for us with equipment.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the compliments and constructive criticism. You are correct the numbering system is a bit confusing the first time you arrive, but there are arrows to indicate the direction, somewhat like you see when you get off a hotel elevator. There are outdoor 3 doors at the unit, and one does lead off the kitchen to the service area, making taking out the trash easy, but it really is just a storage area and a good place to get an outdoor shower. When you come and go, of course you'd more conveniently use the front door to get to your car and the back door leading to the beach or to enjoy the view of the old oak trees, golf course, driving range or to walk to the pool or tennis courts. I am sorry you had deferred maintenance issues and would love to know what else needs to be repaired. Coincidentally, I'm having additional lights and a ceiling fan installed now, so it would be a good time for me to make repairs you noticed need attention. I'm glad you were able to use the bikes and found the walk enjoyable. Hopefully, you easily found the General Store nearby conveniently too. Come in the summer and you can enjoy a free ride to tennis or the beach on the Dunes Buggy van when you are toting a load. Yes there are good restaurants around and you found 2 good ones. I hope you will come back again soon.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Our first time at HH, we loved the island. This rental was in great shape as far rentals go. It met all of our needs, the bikes and grill were great. We were able to bike easily to both krogers and the beach . We have 2 teenagers and with the help of a small backpack and a few bungee cords we were able to take everything we needed to the beach by bike. I would stay at this rental again.
