A complete romantic experience with modern marina front luxury overlooking the yacht basin and incredible sunsets. Picturesque strolls in this Mediterranean inspired village delivers upscale clothing boutiques, souvenir shops, waterfront restaurants, live music, dolphin cruises, kayaking, fishing charters, sunset cruises, and so much more! Your own private covered balcony overlooks the action and becomes the spot for a special champagne brunch or luscious fresh seafood dinner. An over-sized whirlpool tub in the master suite makes your time here truly relaxing and rewarding.
The beach is about a mile from the Villa. You’ll have beach access in Palmetto Dunes, right across the street. Your car pass gives you access to the parent plantation with free parking at the Dunes House which is also an oceanfront café and bar with facilities in season. From there you can walk down the beach next door to the Marriott which often features live music and an outside bar and café. If you don't want to drive, there is a free shuttle (Dunes Buggy) that will provide transportation. It doesn't really have a schedule it’s more like a free taxi. Bike rentals are also inexpensive on the island and they will deliver to you and pick up. There are bike racks on the property. You’ll never have to get in your car if you chose! There is an on-site pool and gas BBQ grill for your convenience. The Performing Arts Center – a live entertainment venue - is next door, as is the Chamber of Commerce where you can get info & maps.
You will have your choice of several restaurants right on the harbor including Italian, right beneath the villa, several Seafood options and a Mexican cantina with outside live music, good margaritas and food! All are just steps out the door from you comfy little villa!
The building has free secure gated parking and a gate w/ coded access for pedestrians leading out to the marina.

About Kelley Huppertz
I am a local owner and have lived on the island for over 22 years. This spectacular villa was my bachelor pad for 12 years and I have wonderful memories and experiences while living on the harbour. I have been in the remodeling industry here for all those years and design and decorated the property to feel like your living in a true Mediterranean village while maintaining a romantic setting for your enjoyment.
Kelley Huppertz purchased this Villa in 1997
Why Kelley Huppertz chose Shelter Cove
This property is steps away from several restaurants, live music, bars and shopping. You don't even have to leave the Shelter Cove Harbour the entire time of your visit since there is more to do and see in this one spot than most can take in in the time they are here. The harbour also offers dolphin cruses, fishing charters, boat rental, kayak rentals and much much more. The energy of this special place is intoxicating!
What makes this Villa unique
Every Tuesday night during the summer season is Harbour Fest Night! Just below you private balcony is one of the largest parties on the island with food vendors, children's activities, music and at 9:00 pm they finish the night off with a spectacular fire works display and this property has front row seats for the display.

Lovely views of Shelter Cove!
Really enjoyed our stay here. Relaxing and spacious condo with a great owner who was very helpful during our check in.
Wonderful romantic getaway!
We stayed at this beautiful condo overlooking Shelter Cove marina for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was a PERFECT location. The views are spectacular, the condo was very nice and there is so much to do, locally, we hardly needed a car. There are several restaurants, shops, and boat rentals just steps away. We also rented bikes and rode to the beach and grocery store nearly every day. I would highly recommend it. (It was not a problem for us at all, but it should be noted that there is a spiral staircase from the living room to the master suite - for some, this might be a consideration.)
Shelter Cove harbor setting.
Our stay at the Shelter Cove unit was great! The 3rd floor unit overlooked the harbor for wonderful views and sunsets. The unit was comfortable, well-appointed and very clean. The location was central to biking, tennis, shopping and restaurants.
We highly recommend!
A great place in a beautiful location
We loved our stay here. It was immaculately maintained by an owner who is friendly, helpful, and responsive. The location couldn't be better because it is located in the middle of everything you like to do on your vacation. We want to stay here on our next visit.

Overlooking the marina was perfect, the location of the condo was perfect for me as well, plenty of things near by to do and see.
