About the property

Beautiful Crown Reef Villa, 2B/2B +, Ground floor, Close 2 Beach, Free Tennis

Come and explore our island retreat! Located just minutes from the beach, Westin Resort, and 3 award winning golf-courses, this first floor unit is well maintained and is within the wooded and highly sought out Port Royal Plantation. New Living room carpet creates a warm space for relaxing, entertaining, and watching the flat-screen TV. If you choose to dine out, there are scores of restaurants a short drive away. But you might just choose to use the fully equipped kitchen, with tablesettings for six people in the open concept dining room.

We are located adjacent to the Port Royal Racquet Club, where both clay and Nova-hard tennis courts are tucked in throughout their garden-like setting. Bring your tennis racquets and enjoy one hour of tennis court time FREE for each day of stay, while additional court-time can be purchased at reduced rates. If the BEACH is your love, you can go from stepping out of the villa to having your feet in the sand in just 5-10 minutes. Use our beach wagon to carry our beach chairs, umbrella, and toys. The Islander's Beach Park provides a large playground area with swings, slides, a covered play space, picnic pavillion, grills, as well as bathrooms and sand-showers, and of course access to miles of pristine Atlantic beaches. Enjoy 5 miles of landscaped trails for running, walking or biking. Our villa is a couple minutes from the large, quiet pool with a children's section or a second smaller pool with a hot tub. For a day trip, Savannah is just an hour away.

This first floor villa features two large bedrooms, each with a brand-new, pillow-top, king-size bed and bathroom. The master bedroom has a computer desk, chair, and one of three mobile device charging stations, while the oversized bathroom has a soaker, whirlpool tub. The 2nd bathroom has a separate tub/shower area as well as access to the living area. Of course we provide all linens, towels, and beach towels. There is also a queen sleeper pull-out in the living room with a new memory-foam mattress. There is cable TV in every room, hi speed internet, wifi, telephone and a DVD player is available for your enjoyment. An all new HVAC system will keep you at just the right temperature. The villa also has a breakfast bar, wet bar, and washer/dryer for your use. Enjoy the view of the live oaks, magnolias, and tennis courts from our full length deck out back. Puzzles, books, games, coloring books for adults, and Prismacolor pencils are waiting for you.

We will give you our contact information, so you can easily get in touch with us if you have any concerns or questions. We love spending time in our island retreat, and we will take great care to make your stay comfortable.

About Dale & Susan Huffman

My husband Dale and I have 5 children and have been married for 33 years. Dale's father had the opportunity to purchase land in HHI before it had become developed. He passed on the opportunity since "it was nothing but marshland". We couldn't help but smile at his Dad's remark when we purchased this villa. Dale's mother, Louise, took pride in her South Carolina camellias, and we were delighted to add two varieties by our back deck that she enjoyed.

We currently live in Indiana, but are delighted to be part of SC again. I am from Tacoma, WA and enoy the beauty of HHI as much as the Pacific Northwest.

Why Dale & Susan Huffman chose Hilton Head Island

We were drawn to the beautiful, newer building with decks and wrap-around stairs in the Port Royal Plantation area. Our villa had everything we wanted like tray ceilings, an open concept living area, comfortable and well-supplied kitchen, and huge bathrooms. It allowed us to be close to many amenities including a 5-10 minute walk to the ocean, tennis courts in our backyard that are situated in a garden setting, and TWO swimming pools. It feels so private, but is actually close to everything.

What makes this villa unique

We delight in making your stay comfortable, and we enjoy answering any questions or concerns you may have. We give you our personal phone numbers and are quick to respond and take care of anything that might arise. We will send you a multiple-page welcome letter with villa information including maps and access codes, as well as general information on places to visit, and even how to get groceries on-line so they are ready for pick-up on the way to the villa. Once you arrive, our alligator table always holds a special welcome to our guests.

Our place is so convenient. It so easy to walk to the beach for the sunset, or go for a quick jog along the white sand that stretches for miles. The winding bike paths can take you all over the island, and I love that bike rental companies deliver/pick-up the bike at the tree by the front door. You can relax in the comfortable and gorgeous villa with a brand new HVAC system; sleep in comfy, King pillow-top beds; utilize the computer desk with multiple plugs for your electronics devices, accessing the free internet, Wifi and phone; or just enjoy the refreshing air on the deck that overlook "Louise's camellias" and one of the Port Royal Racquet Club tennis courts. You might enjoy the fresh, new interior decorations, play with some of the games and puzzles, watch the big screen TV, create masterpieces in coloring books for adults using artist-quality pencils, play on clay or hard courts for free (1 hour/day) at the Port Royal Racquet Club, use the community hot tub, swim in one of two pools, or take the beach wagon with beach supplies to the ocean. But most of all, it provides the perfect place to come and enjoy life together with friends and family.

Home away from home with short walk to ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Dale's place at Crown Reef was beautiful inside and the setting was in Live Oak Trees, near nice golf courses, restaurants, movies and the ocean. The beach is wide and hard and great for biking. Even in January you can expect many sunny days with temps in the 6os.

Great Place.

  • 5 of 5

This an awesome place. Two bedrooms, two bath. Loved the stand alone shower in the master bath, and the garden tub. Fully equipped kitchen is great and I like the refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. First floor unit with about five steps to the porch. Second bathroom can be closed off to make an ensuite. Stackable washer and dryer makes it easy to keep clothes cleaned so your not taking home piles of dirty clothes. Great location and the kids love the tunnel you drive through to get there. I grew up on Hilton Head and knew where this was, in fact i used to bike through here back in the day. You couldn't ask for a better place and for a good price. Plus, the owners are great to work with. The master bedroom and living room have ceiling fans, which is good. Step right out the back door and walk around the tennis courts, or call ahead for a court to play. Everything you need is there: toilet paper, cleaning products, pods for the dishwasher, etc. Close to restaurants, and stores. Will definitely stay here again if it is available.

Very comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home but is need of slight updating. TV and DVD weren't working in main living area. Water for shower or bath never got very warm probably due to water heater thermostat being turned down. Overall our stay was very pleasant. Owners are very responsive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest remarks. We stayed in our home the following week and increased the temperature to the water heater, plugged the TV back into the cable box, and ordered a new DVD remote that had been misplaced. All devices are now working. Our goal is for complete satisfaction and will continue to work toward that end. Susan

We had a great stay....conveniently located, near the beach, grocery stores and shopping. Comfortable beds, including the convertible couch. Our hosts reached out before and during our stay to ensure that all was well. Thanks for a great experience!

We were extremely happy with the property.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautifully decorated with personal touches throughout that makes it feel like a home away from home. Everything that is needed for a pleasant visit is provided, all the way down to the books, board games and beach chairs. The Huffman's are very easy to communicate with and are fast to respond. The bottle of wine was a nice touch as a welcome gift and the scrap book gave a lot of useful information. Not to mention, the beds are AMAZING! So comfortable! We were celebrating my sons graduation from the Marine Corp. and their kindness made the experience even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this villa for future celebrations. Thank you so much from my entire family for an awesome visit!
