We typically rent from Saturday to Saturday.

Our Centrecourt villa is relatively new to the vacation rental market. It has previously been owner- occupied by my wife and I as a vacation getaway.

The villa is centrally located, within easy, short walking distance to Tennis, Golf, Kayaking, Fishing, Biking Trails, and the Beach. Pool is on site.

Our villa is well appointed in a bright and cheerful Beach motif within the gated community of the Palmetto Dunes Resort in the heart of Hilton Head. Hilton Head is regarded as one of the nicest family vacation resorts in the U.S. It has received high praise from Travel & Leisure magazine, as well as considered within the top 100 golf resorts in the country, and #3 Tennis resort ranking in the world.

Our airy 1300 square feet, smoke-free villa offers an open, spacious floor plan. In May 2017, new hardwood flooring & wooden blinds were installed. In October 2017, we replaced the furniture in our Family Room. There are two large, private bedroom suites within the villa. Each suite has a spacious bedroom, vanity, dressing area, and bathroom. One bedroom has two queen size beds, while the master bedroom has a king size bed and a sitting area with an over-size lounge chair and a small desk area. There are Allergy Protectors on all beds. TV and DVD are in each bedroom. Our villa has FREE Wireless Internet service throughout, including our back Deck.

The bedroom suites are separated by a large, open dining area and a vaulted-ceiling family room to give you and your guest’s complete privacy. In addition to a pull-out couch that can sleep two, the family room has over-sized lounge chairs and an entertainment center with TV and DVD. From the family room, the room opens up to our large and secluded, covered deck, overlooking the 11-mile lagoon. Our deck has a ceiling fan to give you extra comfort on a particularly hot day.

The kitchen area is to the left as you enter the villa. It is fully equipped for your vacation needs including a refrig, dishwasher, disposal, small appliances, dishware, and a washer & dryer. It features a counter area with two bar stools that open into the spacious dining and family room areas.

Our villa is located within a small, private group of villas, called Centrecourt, in the heart of Palmetto Dunes and near the ocean. Centrecourt is ideally situated. In addition to its own private pool, it is just a short walk to tennis, golf, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and clearly one of the best beaches on Hilton Head.

You may choose to relax on our own secluded, large covered deck that overlooks the 11-mile lagoon. The lagoon flows along fern and tree shaded banks as it winds its way throughout the entire Palmetto Dunes Resort. In time, you will see a great variety of wildlife, including Blue Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, and an occasional “gator”, to name a few. Later, you may wish to boat or go fishin’ in this stocked lagoon. Kayak, canoe, even guided fishing charters, are all available at the Palmetto Dunes Outfitters Rental shop, just a short walk (or drive) from the villa.

We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on all sorts of outdoor activities-- rental Bikes, Kayak & Canoe rental, Golf, & Tennis.

Did I mention the BEACH??? The beach at Palmetto Dunes is 3+ miles long and is considered by many to be the finest beach on Hilton Head. The Beach is just an easy 5-8 minute walk over paved sidewalks, or a short drive from our villa- about a quarter mile. Once there, as our guest, you have free access to the private Palmetto Dunes/Disney Recreation Pavilion with free parking, picnic tables & grill, a snack bar, and restrooms.

If TENNIS is your game, we'll give you up to one (1) hour of FREE tennis per day at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, plus other DISCOUNTS on tennis activities. About 300 yards from our villa are 8 courts of the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center. About a quarter mile further are 17 more courts of the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Courts, with 15 clay and 2 hard courts (8 are lighted) as well as special activities such as tennis clinics for adults and children alike.

If you love to play GOLF, you’re in the right place. There are 3 superb 18-hole courses within Palmetto Dunes, including the Fazio Course, about 500 yards from our villa, as well as Arthur Hills and Robert Trent Jones just a short way down the road. We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on all 3 courses.

All together, there are about 27 semi-private and public courses in the Hilton Head area for you to choose.

If you enjoy taking a BICYCLE ride, this is the place. We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on bike rental.

Hilton Head has miles and miles (about 32 miles) of paved bicycle paths that will take you to large portions of the island. Bikes are also allowed on the Beach. Bring your own bike, or, for your convenience, bike rentals are available at Palmetto Dunes Outfitters Rental Shop, just a short walk from the villa.

If you look forward to a day out SHOPPING, Hilton Head will not disappoint you. Numerous retail shops and boutiques abound throughout the area, to include the shops at Shelter Cove Marina across the street from the main entrance to Palmetto Dunes, as well as the Tanger Outlets just off-island with literally 100’s of outlet stores.

Also, there a number of very good RESTAURANTS nearby. One of the most popular restaurants, Alexander's, is just across the 11-Mile Lagoon bridge near the rear of our villa.

About Harv Wells

My wife and I love the ocean and wanted a nice upscale family getaway. We tried many places along the sea coast, but preferred Hilton Head Island (SC) above all. So, when I retired a while back, we decided to purchase a 'second home' for our getaways. We bought a Centrecourt villa in Hilton Head's Palmetto Dunes Resort. It was centrally located and offered easy access to the ocean, boating, golf, tennis, fishing, and yes, lots of shopping. For the past 12 years we have used it for ourselves and our family. And now, with our upcoming travel plans, we will be using it far less. So we decided to rent the villa to folks who would really enjoy it.

Harv Wells purchased this condo in 1997

Why Harv Wells chose Hilton Head Island

We decided to buy this Centrecourt villa in this location because of its seclusion and the magnificent view of the lagoon from our back deck. Yet, we are only a short distance from the ocean, golf, tennis, even fishing.

What makes this condo unique

Location. Location. Location. We love the idea of taking a short walk and having a choice of outdoor activities so close by. Yet, in the midst of all these nearby activities, we thoroughly enjoy the seclusion while sitting on our back deck overlooking Palmetto Dunes 11-mile lagoon. In fact, we often have dinner or light appetizers on the back deck and spend hours unwinding after boating, golf, or whatever strikes our fancy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time. You are a great and responsive host! Everything was as described & convenient. Easy access to restaurants & grocery (Kroger – Whole Foods) as well as other shopping at Shelter Cove easy access by bike path and underpass safe and easy! or car – less than 2 miles door to door from Harv's villa. The Villa is comfortable with lots of space, comfortable beds and super cozy couches and chairs. If you need / want it every room had TV and DVD options and the unit has fast reliable WIFI-Internet Access. The outdoor seating area is great for bird watching, eating, hanging out, etc. The beach access is an easy half-mile walk, drive or bike ride and has outdoor shower and foot wash, clean indoor bathrooms, snack bar, bike racks, parking, etc. Beach is flat and hard packed sand very wide at low tide, excellent for walking, running, riding bike for 7 miles or more. At the beach we saw lots of wildlife including dolphins, birds, turtles, sharks and stingrays. Life Guards and chair / umbrella rentals are on the beach. Also within easy walking distance (1/2m) from the villa is the General Store, Alexanders Restaurant, and the Palmetto Dunes outfitters. The pool is big enough and deep enough to enjoy (but not swim laps) and is shaded by mature trees. Golf course and the clay tennis courts are a 5min. walk from the Villa. Make sure to bring or rent bikes! Palmetto Dunes Outfitters have great service and rent bikes, Kayaks, paddle boards, etc. fair price with Harv’s villa discount. We also recommend a guided Kayak trip with Outside Hilton Head Outfitters in Shelter Cove Marina. Our two favorite restaurants we found were: 1) The French Bakery - Shelter Cove - Great Espresso Drinks, delicious foods with variety from salads, sandwiches, much more. 2) The Lucky Rooster - Local Farm to Table restaurant about 3 miles or less from the Villa with amazing food, drinks, and service. Spend a day checking out Historic Bluffton and browse many art galleries, meet the local artists, explore local shops, and eat at "The Cottage" if you can. Thanks for sharing your Villa with us. We will likely return again in the future so keep our information handy and we will do the same.

Perfect place for a sisters long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was close to everything and very comfortable. We had everything we needed, space to be together and space to be alone. While the property is pet friendly, there was nothing to indicate any pets had been there. It was spotless. We would definitely return.

Perfect condo in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my family's stay. Clean, everything we needed, and a super nice owner. Close to beach with free parking right at the beach access. The beach was wonderful! Wide, sandy beach that goes on for miles. I really liked staying at a place that required a security pass to get to the property. We especially liked that the place was pet friendly but you couldn't tell it was pet friendly. In many places I've stayed in the past, you walk into the house and are hit in the face with the smell of "pet friendly." Not here! Thanks Harv!
