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 recently 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.

My wife & I have visited HHI & Shelter Cove for many years and I have to say, that this was one of our most enjoyable visits, even with all of the rain at the beginning of our stay, we enjoyed just hanging out at the villa and watching the marina. The villa was very clean and the view of the marina is excellent. I also have to point out that Mike is a pleasure to work with. He makes it very personable and keeps you informed of what's going on at the cove. We enjoyed it so much that we have already made plans to go back in September.I would definitely recommend this villa and owner to anyone and everyone if you want a great vacation!

Mothers Day Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed for 4 nights at Mike & Sue's condo. We felt very much at home from the moment we walked in. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with very nice, updated appliances.

This was our first of many more visits to come!

Repeat Customer

  • 5 of 5

We have chosen Mike and Sue's villa many times for our vacations because of their hospitality. We always know that we will have a clean, well-kept and well-appointed villa that is centrally-located. In fact, you don't even have to get in your car if you don't want to. There are many restaurants at Shelter Cove as well as shops, walkways and boating activities. Mike and Sue are also the most responsive owners we have come across. If you have a question or concern, you will get a quick response. As soon as our week is over, we are already planning our next getaway here.

Spacious, Great Views, Near Everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent many hours on the patio enjoying the views, the boat traffic, and people watching. If you know Hilton Head Island, you know how busy Hwy 278 can be. From this villa we never had to use the highway to shop, dine, find walking paths, or schedule boat trips. It's all right here and you can even go under Hwy 278 to hike/bike into Palmetto Dunes and go to the beach.

The two bedrooms both have king beds so the unit was perfect for our family needs. The owners were very responsive to questions and followed up with reminders for upcoming events.

We loved the stay!

Location. Location Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been our winter home for the past 3 winters ... you would be hard pressed to find a better location. With a balcony overlooking the marina it is the perfect place to enjoy a drink after a day of golf or touring the island on your bicycle... rentals are nearby and they deliver your bikes. There are half a dozen restaurants within a few minutes walking distance and a grocery store is nearby as well ... what more do you need ...

The condo is spacious and most importantly the beds are comfortable.

To top it all off Mike and Sue are great hosts.

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!!
