About Steve Vanderhoof

North Carolina has been our home for the last 20 years. We have two grown girls leaving us on our own again. Both my wife and I are Avid ACC football and basketball fans!

Steve Vanderhoof purchased this villa in 2002

Why Steve Vanderhoof chose Hilton Head Island

After vacationing in Hilton Head Island for 5 years, we decided to buy a Villa. It is our piece of paradise. We always look forward to our visits with great expectation and are never disappointed.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa offers all the comforts of home while you enjoy a sub tropical island vacation. Biking with the four bikes provided with the rental is a great way to get to know the Plantation. The pool is 200 yards away, tennis is 400 yards away and the beach is only a 5 minute walk. Grilling from a patio area, off the deck, which backs up to the Shipyard Golf Course, is always great fun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa!! We had a wonderful time on HHI! The weather was sunny & warm all week! We really appreciated having the bikes & beach locker. Thanks for everything you did to make our vacation perfect!!

Gorgeous home for the perfect HHI getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves Hilton Head Island, and we return year after year for a week-long vacation. 176 The Greens is our absolute favorite place to stay while visiting Hilton Head. Not only is it just a short, scenic walk from the beach, but it offers all the conveniences that make our vacation so much easier, including a beach locker for beach toys and equipment at the Shipyard Club, bikes, a grill, indoor storage, washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. Plus, the home is perfectly decorated, clean and bright. The back deck overlooks the beautiful Shipyard golf course and is a perfect setting for sipping cocktails at night or enjoying a morning cup of coffee. And with comfortable beds and TV in each bedroom, relaxing comes easy at 176 The Greens. Oh, and check out the newly renovated, spa-like master bathroom as well. It's fabulous!

First impression was great, and the owners very helpfull and easy to reach

  • 3 of 5

We had few issues with the house. The fridge leaked for a few days, I called the owner and he got it fixed the next day. Then we had a storm, and I am guessing that because of that the electricity started to act weird. I turned the dryer on and the lights in the master-bedroom went on. It happened twiced, after running out of power for about 30 min. Owner was going to send an electrician to check on that after our departure.. Last day water was out for all villas in The green for a couple of hours. Like I said to the owner, things happen, but they all happened when I was there for 10 days. The owner did everything he could to solve the issues.

Owner's Response: We are heart broken for our guests. When we received the call regarding a leak in the refrigerator we immediately notified our "Champs" program through our electric company that maintains our appliances. A technician was sent out that day and the repair was completed. Then apparently a lightning strike nearby affected our circuit breaker so we again made a call to an electrician who diagnosed the problem and replaced the faulty circuit breaker. Finally, near the end of their stay our guests experienced a water outage as did the entire area due to a water main break. This was well beyond our control but we do feel badly that it caused consternation to our guests. As always we will continue to remain accessible to our renters needs.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to HHI and loved staying here. The location was perfect with the pool close by and the beach was only a few minutes away by bike or walking. They also had 4 bikes for our family which were very convenient and used every day. Lots of biking throughout the plantation which is gated. Easy access in and out of the plantation to explore the island with the bikes. The condo was well furnished and very comfortable. The kids loved their room together with the twin beds and the master bedroom was very comfortable. Sometimes things happen as the washer broke on our second night. The owners were on top of it and had the plumber and a new washer delivered. They were very responsive and it didn't affect our trip in any way! It was nice having beach chairs in the beach locker for use too. The beach was also beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely stay here again if in the area!

Walking into this Villa was like entering our home away from home, private little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was beautifully furnished and in excellent condition. From the fully stocked kitchen to the rain shower in the master bath to the stainless grill off of the back deck, we had all the comforts of home at our finger tips. The Villa was located across the way from Van Der Meer Tennis and as short walk from the beach. When we came off of the wide and beautiful beach, the private pool was only around the corner and was a great option for the kids. We took full advantage of the bikes and rode for miles on the extensive bike paths. The Island offered great restaurants, shopping and entertainment options.

Our Villa is in Shipyard which we particularly like because it is very family oriented and quiet in the plantation while being close to all activities along the highway. Shipyard is ocean side and our villa in The Greens is exceptionally close to the beach access. There is only one beach access in Shipyard and it is located directly next to the Sonesta Hotel across from The Greens.

A new beach club has been built and just recently opened which houses beach lockers in the lower level. Our locker is #319 and has a small combination lock (1776) which makes it very convenient for you to leave beach chairs, radios, etc. and walk unencumbered back and forth to the beach. There is a very small amount of beach parking and there are also bike racks at the beach club entrance. We have four bikes and we recommend you use the locks provided whenever you park them—they do disappear. You may want to rent smaller bikes for your children as ours are adult sizes only. Bike rentals are everywhere and found easily in the phone book. Just call in your order and they will deliver right to your door with their own set of locks. Bike and walking trails wind all over the plantation and out the gates to the main roads.

You can fish in the larger lagoons which are along Cordillo Parkway or Shipyard Drive. There are alligators in these ponds and they do come out and sun themselves but please keep your distance and don’t feed them. Also, the egrets and cormorants are interesting to watch.

Golf and tennis are favorite pastimes of HHI vacationers. I understand that Shipyard golf course is a fairly good course. Actually, it is three, 9 hole courses that can be played in any combination. Tennis is across the way at the Van Der Meer tennis Facility. You can sign up for clinics and put your name on the available list in to play doubles or singles with players of equal ability. There is an hourly charge to use the courts. If your family plays tennis you may enjoy the Van Der Meer.

Off the plantation there is tons of shopping. Publix is a great grocery store and there is also Food Lion and Harris Teeter. Outlet shopping and the Shelter Cove Mall have always kept my daughters busy. There are also several miniature golf courses along Rte. 278. If you go at night use insect repellent. There are two movie theatres of which I am aware, one at each end of the island.

I could go on and on about dining on the island but we do have a few favorites and you may find several of your own. For family dining we enjoy Reilley’s at the Pope Ave. circle—lots to choose from on the menu. Aunt Chiladas is a popular Mexican place. There is a better one at the Harbor at Shelter Cove (by the Mall) called San Miguel’s. It overlooks the Harbor and you may sit either inside or out. Sometimes there is live entertainment. There are upscale shops and galleries along the Harbor as well as other restaurants. I understand that Marley’s is also very good but I have not been there. Marley’s is located on the left, in a shopping center beyond the Pope Ave. circle on the way towards Sea Pines Plantation entrance.

Skillets is a wonderful family restaurant at Coligny Plaza. Also at Coligny Plaza, there are lots of little shops, ice cream places, and bakeries. Often there is entertainment for the children in the courtyard area.

Speaking of entertainment for the children, Sea Pines Plantation is a place we try to visit once a year at least. You have to pay a $5 fee to enter Sea Pines but there is free parking in the visitor lot and you can take a free open trolley to the lighthouse and shopping area called Harbour Town. The first stop is a shopping center where there is an exceptional restaurant called Truffles. I do see families there but I think it is more on the pricey side than others. The next stop is the lighthouse area where you can shop, eat, and stroll. There is a performance area in the open where a children’s entertainer plays the guitar, tells funny stories and engages children in an interactive way in the show. This may be only on particular nights so you would have to investigate. The Salty Dog Café, a very casual place, is also located in Sea Pines. The Salty Dog has its own tee shirt shop—you may see people wearing these all over the island.

Savannah is located about an hours drive away. There are trolley tours through the city which start at the visitor’s center. You can get off at different spots and back on again as long as you have a tour pass. There are many good restaurants in Savannah too along with art galleries and shopping. At night they host ghost tours around the historic areas—again probably more interesting for adults.

Aside from what I have told you there are over 200 other restaurants and several other golf courses, cruises, canoe tours, concerts etc. that you can experience on Hilton Head. Or, you can spend most of your time on the beach which has beautiful, soft sand.
