In addition to patio dining, luxury chaise lounges, and conversation seating with the extensive wrap-around deck, allows for exceptional outdoor living. The home is located in an enclave of exclusive homes, the closest private homes to the Shipyard Beach Club and beach, and easily accommodates 6-8 for sleeping. The home’s premiere location is within minutes of all that Shipyard Plantation and Hilton Head Island have to offer, including great beaches, world-class golf, tennis, casual and fine dining and shopping. In March, 2013, our home was selected among all Shipyard Plantation homes and condos, for its most appealing decor, by a new videography company in the Hilton Head/Savannah area.

THIS HOME IS ONE OF THE FEW HOMES WITHIN EASY WALKING DISTANCE TO THE BEACH. Enjoy your own private hot tub/spa, to warm you up in the colder months, and cool you off in the summer, temperature adjusted accordingly! Enter the front door, and you will look through the open, airy living room with vaulted ceilings, to a wall of windows, with fantastic views of the golf course, and lagoon beyond. The home sits on the fairway of the 6th hole of Shipyard’s Galleon golf course. You will feel a great sense of privacy here, enjoying your own space.

Step from the living room to expansive wrap-around decks, with a dining table for six, and plenty of bench seating and chairs for lounging and enjoying the moss trees and golf course views. An additional paver patio goes beyond the wrap-around deck, with a PRIVATE HOT TUB for you to enjoy. Spend relaxing time watching all types of waterfowl. Watch the blue heron, cardinals and a large variety of birds. Walk across the golf course to the lagoon, and feed the adorable baby turtles!

Enjoy the upgraded kitchen with new granite countertops, stainless steel sink and appliances, and hard wood floors. We provide everything you will need, should you decide to dine at home during your stay, including glassware, dishes, pots and pans, etc. We even provide a crab pot to steam your favorite seafood! There is also a gas grill on the deck to prepare your favorite meals.

Sand Dollar Cottage offers three spacious bedrooms, each newly decorated with quality, high-end bedding and luxury linens. The king master bedroom suite with private bath is upstairs, It has a wonderful view of the bearded moss trees, the golf course and the lagoon beyond. The newly designer-decorated and freshly painted second bedroom, furnished with a king bed, is located on the first floor, and also shares the same beautiful wooded and golf view. From here, you will have direct access to the deck and hot tub through sliding glass doors. Guests staying in this room will love having their morning coffee just outside their room, on the deck. A third bedroom, on the first floor, is freshly painted, and has a new Lexington queen cottage bedroom set. This bedroom looks out over the beautiful private park across the street. There is a full bath on the first floor. We have also provided a queen-size, elevated air bed with pump, and a full-size auto-inflate air bed for additional sleeping needs. The living room sleeper sofa is new, with a queen bed inside and special cushions for extra comfort when used for regular seating.

All bedrooms have flat screen, LCD TV's, and there is a large flat screen, LCD TV in the living room. We also provide a stereo, a DVD player and a DVD library for your use. Should you have work to do during your stay, we provide a wonderful Pottery Barn style desk and futon in the bright sun room, and complimentary wireless internet for your use.

The home is well equipped with all of the conveniences you are looking for, including, beach towels and chairs, beach toys, coolers, 'noodles', and four adult bicycles…all complimentary. Just bring your clothes and enjoy a relaxing romantic, secluded get-away, or a family vacation that will build memories to last a lifetime. Do as much or as little as you would like during your stay…it is all up to you.

This is an exceptional home, with a terrific location: walk to or drive just a minute to the private Shipyard Beach Club/beach, and just 5 minutes to the Sea Pines gate for access to Harbor Town and South Beach.

Why Barbara chose Hilton Head Island

We have been vacationing in Hilton Head for many years. It is truly a special place, where we can go back year after year, and always have a wonderful time. There was no question where we wanted to buy our special vacation home...'paradise!'

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the feeling of coming through the gates of feel as if you are in a secluded paradise, where you can let go of the stresses of daily life and work! We love being so close to the beach, just a short walk or bike ride away from one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen. The house is so bright and comfortable, and the views are amazing.

Paradise Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Barbara's house a week was exactly like the pictures you see on the site. Beautiful, serene, well equipped. We discovered an island that looks like paradise. The bonus we appreciated : the four bikes that comes with this rental. We went everywhere with them, the whole family. The beach is a few minutes away and there is a pool just minutes from the house. We highly recommend this rental (though we would like to keep it to ourselves). Barbara was always available to answer all our questions (we had a problem with a bike and she arranged everything so we were able to have it replaced). Thanks for a wonderful vacation ! Nathalie

Great Escape from the North

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. It was very well appointed, neat, clean, well stocked with every utensil, dish, pots and pans, Gas Grill, etc.. We had 5 adults in our party, and we all had a fabulous time. The bedrooms, and living areas are well furnished and very comfortable. The living room had a wonderful fire place that we enjoyed every night between Christmas and New Years Eve. The hot tub was great, right off the deck, so if you didn't want to be in it, you could socialize easily. The location of the home was amazing, you are within walking distance to everything that Shipyard Plantation has to offer. The Sonesta Hotel is also within walking distance and they have a wonderful Happy Hour menu if you don't feel like cooking. There were also several bikes on premises and the owners were terrific about sharing them. And the view and serenity of sitting on the golf course was very enjoyable and relaxing. Grocery stores, Outlet Shopping, Sun, Sand, Beach, Great Restaurants, what else could you possibly ask for. We will definitely stay again and look forward to planning our next trip. Barbara was an amazing owner and extremely easy to do business with.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this home with a couple of our friends over Labor Day weekend. Everybody in the party had nothing but positive comments to make about this home. Everything was very well organized and clean! The location is more than convenient. I loved how close it was to all the main shopping areas. The beach locker that this rental comes with came in handy!! We kept all of our beach gear in the locker along with the materials they provided. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy a nice stay on HHI. Barbara is so sweet and easy to talk to :)

Great HH Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This particular property is well appointed, and very clean. The living area is very spacious, and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, etc. The owners are very gracious. We would definitely stay at this property again! Hot tub was an awesome addition. I only wish we had noticed the 2 golf bags stocked with a full set of clubs before our departure. Would have enjoyed paying a few holes of golf if only we had know the clubs were there in the sun room:-) Thanks for such a pleasant and relaxing stay. O! And the bicycles were also another great included feature.

One of the best places we stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed in Hilton Head many times before this. I can definitely say that this was one of our favorite places. The house was beautifully decorated and very spacious. We really enjoyed the newly added Hot tub for relaxing evenings. The added extras such as bicycles and beach towels were a nice plus also. The setting on the Shipyard Golf course was beautiful and serene. We enjoyed our stay so much that we hated to leave! We appreciate all the special amenities in the kitchen and the amazing deck complete with comfortable chairs, a gas grill, and sunroom. There was even a set of golf clubs for our use. We would like to recommend this rental property to anyone wanting to visit Hilton Head. It will be an experience to remember!
