About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

What a great vacation you're bound to have! We have a very nicely decorated and very comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bath villa in the heart of Shelter Cove, Hilton Head's largest marina. For additional sleeping, we have a sleeper sofa in the living room.

We recentlly completed a renovation of the kitchen. All new cognac colored cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances and a colorful new ceramic floor

OUR VILLA IS DIRECT HARBOR FRONT. Gorgeous marina views from the balcony, as well as terrific views from the living areas and the master bedroom. For all of you that like to bring your best friend along, WE ARE PET FRIENDLY, as long as we understand and agree to the dog or cat you'd like to bring along...must be well behaved/trained...sorry, declawed cats only.

Shelter Cove is a very popular place for vacationers. Water sports (fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sightseeing, etc), lots of stores for shopping and a ton of restaurants all around the harbor...even a restaurant that offers a 'doggie menu' for your pooch! Most of the harbor front restaurants offer al fresco dining with live entertainment. There's even an amphitheater shaped pavilion near our building that has live entertainment for you to enjoy from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It's really popular and gathers a nice crowd...great fun for the kids and adults alike.

There is a free shuttle 'Dunes Buggy' that will pick you up right next to our building. It takes you around the Palmetto Dunes Plantation including the beach house and the country store. And just a few blocks away from the marina is Hilton Head's newest mall. Great stores, restaurants and a huge Krogers to buy your groceries. And if you like theater, there's a playhouse only 1 block away. You can also rent a bike right from the marina...go all around the marina and Shelter Cove...even bike from Shelter Cove through the tunnel and under highway 278 and see the rest of the Palmetto Dunes Plantation!

We are also part of the Palmetto Dunes Preferred Rentals Program. As our guest, you'll receive a special ID card that entitles you to discounted golf, tennis, bike rental, even kayak and canoe rentals to enjoy our extensive lagoon system. This is one of the perks you get when renting from us.

We offer rentals throughout the year. Weekly prices run from $975 to $1,375 depending on the time of the year and if your week is during a holiday or special event like the Harbortown Golf tournament. At the end of your stay, there is a cleaning charge of $90. We also offer discounts on multiple week stays and deeper discounts on monthly stays.

And for you TV buffs, we have a 55" big screen HDTV with the preferred channel lineup.

And for those of you that just can't leave your computer at home, we have internet in the villa.

For payments, we accept personal checks and Paypal. Paypal and Homeaway payments by credit card are subject to an additional service fee.

PS: We also have a 1 bedroom townhouse, just 3 doors away from this 2 bedroom villa. You can read about and see some pictures on VRBO listing #347586. 2 full walls of glass with awesome full harbor views, very large, nicely decorated and also very comfortable. Would make a great 2nd rental if you're vacationing with family or friends. Want pictures? Let us know.

About The Owner

We love this villa. You and your family...and your best buddy (pooch or kitty) will too. We stayed at the ocean for years. But when we found Shelter Cove, we never wanted to stay anywhere else.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner chose Palmetto Dunes Plantation

We've been vacationing in Hilton Head for over 30 years. But from the first time we stayed in Shelter Cove, we never wanted to stay any place else. It has so much to see and do. We knew it was a matter of time until we bought a villa here...and now we have!

What makes this villa unique

Enjoy sitting on our balcony. You are directly on the marina with great views. Watch the people go by...and in season, watch the beautiful sunsets & on Tuesday's catch the fireworks display over the harbor right from from balcony.

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for a month for my parents who totally loved it the view from the balcony is beautiful right on the marina where you can sit and enjoy the view with a cocktail or coffee. Having two bedrooms is great for company if you choose. Many restaurants to walk to and grocery store no car needed. Great location will definitely rent this condo again amazing!!

Love the condo and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. Mike and Sue were fantastic to rent from. They kept us informed and provided us with great information on activities. This unit has a fantastic view from the balcony overlooking the marina at Shelter Cove. The unit was very clean and convenient to shopping and dining. We enjoyed the fantastic restaurants and happy hours on site in the complex. There was no reason to drive somewhere else when all cuisines were on site!

We are going to book this condo again. Book early If you want this unit as it stays booked far in advance. If you are considering Hilton Head you won't be disappointed if you choose to rent from Mike and Sue.

Balcony with a View

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Sue's place is our go-to stay for Hilton Head. Very comfy and cozy. The fact that it is one level means it's a breeze to keep cool. The second bedroom with its private bath is an added bonus for teens or friends to have their own space. What keeps bringing us back, though, is the balcony with an unbeatable view of the harbor. The overhead fan keeps it cool, even on the hottest days and nothing can beat sitting out there with a cold drink, relaxing on the futon sofa, hearing the musicians play below and watching the sunset. If you are lucky enough to stay on a Tuesday in the summer, you have a front row seat to the fireworks. Amazing!

Classy, Comfy, Clean, Crisp, Cute, and Cuddly for Canines

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a stay at this lovely villa 7/30-8/9 & it was seamless planning. I had stayed previously at another rental owned by Mike and Sue and was so very well pleased knew this would be just as nice and suitable to my needs and indeed it was. Very pleasantly decorated. Ample linens, pillows, comforters, towels, kitchen utensils, serving ware, cookware all of these kinds of home use items all right there. Entertainment and recreation items including books, DVDs and VHS tapes, CDs etc available to enjoy though I spent most of this trip on the go this makes for nice added activity for afternoon or evenings in especially with long term stays. The villa is pet friendly which is awesome and well cleaned and maintained between human and pet tenants. The decor is very tasteful and homey in the sense of feel of an apartment to enjoy vs beach rental if that makes sense. The floor plan is spacious, the deck is wonderful with great seating and coziness for enjoying the outdoors; the bedrooms are a good size with PLENTY of clothing storage place amid drawers and closets. This villa even has a plentiful supply of hangers of various styles for larger family or the over packing silly soul like myself. The furnishing is great ample table, counter and sofa seating, two king size beds, desk, large end tables with sofas and beds with cabinetry, even seating nooks in both bedrooms. And one of my favorite things a fully mirrored wall in the living room area; makes for such a feeling of expanse, richness of atmosphere and reflection of light and exterior beauty too. Air conditioning and ceiling fans worked wonderful for this not loving the humidity gal.The owners are easy to reach, work and communicate with and have their rental(s) priced fair and in my perception what we receive as guests very much meets the value expectations. Great view of the harbor and right at the spot of being able to share in the outdoor entertainment of Shelter Cove right off the balcony. That I guess could be a limiting factor for some if they really prefer the very quiet, solitude, reflective type early evening atmosphere around their lodging but I myself prefer some activity. OBVIOUSLY I recommend this villa and will likely stay with them in the future.

Great Harbourside Villa!

  • 5 of 5

If you want Harbourside, this villa is fabulous!... Easy access to restaurants and shops in Shelter Cove and a short bike ride to beach. The unit itself has two very private King size bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large gathering area and fantastic covered porch. Truly perfect. Only drawback for some is that the pool area( in back of another building) is rather small... but otherwise this villa is in great location and Mike and Sue will make you feel at home!!. You will not be disappointed. And its pet friendly :)
