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 $1,350 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 $100. 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 Shelter Cove

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 location with easy access to beach and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The Villa faces the marina and has sunset views from an oversized balcony. Location is ideal with restaurants, grocery, and beach all a short bike ride away. Owners were excellent to work with and communication was outstanding. I would highly recommend the unit.

Great villa and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year visiting HHI and our 1st time staying in Shelter Cove Marina. Needless to say this was the best trip yet. The villa itself was spacious, comfortable and we could not have asked for more. Shelter Cove offers a variety of things to do, i.e., shopping, restaurants, great happy hours and entertainment. We have always loved boating so being on the marina was a plus for us. Mike and Sue were wonderful to work with and we are looking forward to returning in 2018.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this villa many times, and it doesn't disappoint. Perfectly located in the center of Shelter Cove, the large balcony has perfect views of the marina and walkways. Yet it is also quiet for relaxing. This is a well-furnished home and provides all the amenities you may need. Sue and Mike, the owners of the villa, are perfect hosts and very responsive to your questions and requests. We enjoy all the shopping and restaurants that are within walking distance. The central location of Shelter Cove also makes driving to shopping, restaurants and other attractions very handy. We will definitely come back to this villa!

Superb villa with beautiful views! Best

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with beautiful views morning and evening off balcony. Super comfortable bed and living room furniture with great tv. New kitchen counters and appliances. Even with that though, we have been using VRBO for almost 20 years now and Mike and Sue are the best owners we have ever dealt with. They are outstanding communicators, very responsive, and ensure all your questions are answered and all your needs are cared for,
