About Bob D

Just caught this fish from our dock on July 14th 2011.

We've been traveling to and vacationing at Hilton Head for almost 30 years, and we love the island. There's so much to do! Or you can just choose to relax and not do much of anything. Ocean Cove is a great place for a family vacation or a golf or tennis getaway. The view on the 11 mile lagoon system is at your foot steps from your own private dock. Bring your canoe or kayak or rent one. We love sitting on the dock in the morning to read the paper, drink a cup of coffee and watch the kayakers go buy. Then we get into our canoe and explore 11 miles of lagoon. You can bring your own or rent them from the Outfitters....right around the corner.

Bob D purchased this villa in 2010

Why Bob D chose South Carolina

When you walk from the living room onto the deck with a fresh cup of hot coffee and the morning sunshine all around you, you'll know why you chose this villa. The view of the dock and the beautiful lagoon will provide the perfect start to a great day on the island. When you rent this unit you will have access to discounts for food, golf,tennis and many other places on Hilton Head.

A trip on the lagoon at dusk or dawn is great and we like to run on the beach each morning since it is so close. We also love the Fish Taco's from the Dunes House which is less than a 5 minute walk.

There is so much to see on bike also. Again bring them or you can rent them. The General Store is a great stopping place and Shelter Cove is a great place to eat, see live entertainment each night during the summer as well as fireworks every Tuesday night .

What makes this villa unique

This unit has a private dock and a balcony extending from all three bedrooms. The view of the lagoon is breathtaking. In addition, it's just a short walk to the beach, and there's a swimming pool for use by you and/or your guests. Enjoy miles of beautiful bike trails in this safe, tranquil, gated community. Walking distance to beach,tennis courts, one of the three golf courses,canoe/bike rental,general store, and places to eat.

Price quoted by owner will be all inclusive.

Great location and wonderful layout.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation began with attentive and kind service from Bob, himself. He was informative and compassionate as we needed to make some last minute plans. I am so grateful.

The actual home is in a perfect location in Palmetto Dunes. We walked to tennis every morning, walked to the beach in the afternoon, walked to rent bikes, walked to rent kayaks, walked to lunch. It is close to everything.

Our family has 6 people (4 kids). The layout gave everyone their own space and bathroom. Each bedroom has its own porch. It gave us time together and time to be on our own. We loved it.

Thanks so much, Bob!

Lovely Lagoon

  • 5 of 5

This condo was incredible. It sits right on a lagoon and was visited often by herons, which landed right on the deck. Great photos! The fish were jumping for bugs in the evening and leaving the sliding doors to the deck off the bedroom open, you could hear them.....which presented a great water feature.

The unit is clean and well furnished. The kitchen has almost everything you could need. It was great that the decks weren't in the direct sun most of the time making it enjoyable to sit out any time of the day.

The pristine ocean beach is a short walk away, as is the General Store and a couple of restaurants. Bike and kayak rentals were an easy walk also. There are numerous bike paths but low tide on the beach is the way to go. The sand is hard and the beach very wide.

Shopping is easy with many stores just across the main roadway from the entrance to Palmetto Dunes. I really liked that there was a Whole Foods available.

I do not golf, so I cannot comment on that but I took a nature kayak tour that was perfect. We saw dolphins, turtles, clams beds, many birds, a very large snail...and heard many facts and stories about Hilton Head. It was great!

My sister would like to make it a yearly visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We strive to provide the same type of vacation experience we would hope for ourselves. Our family loves all that there is to do. The short walk (less than 5 minutes ) to the beach and the private dock are very unique. And three golf courses and 24 tennis courts close to our unit gives everyone a chance to do what they enjoy.

Great location; relaxing environment.

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the back deck and watching the wildlife and water was so relaxing. The three bedrooms are roomy and the location is great - close to the beach and of course lots of golf. It's great having the general store right up the road and it's easy to rent bikes or kayaks. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Villa to others.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owner was quick to responded to all correspondences and rental of property went smoothly. This was perfect place for our family which included small children and a elderly parent. We were able to park near the door walk right in. The place was very clean and more then enough linens were proved. So many activities are an easy walk that a 3yr old can do and did, beach , general store, bike/boat rental, tennis and golf. We enjoyed fishing on the lagoon from the deck that is right off the porch. I have to say it is a lovely and peaceful spot. I would come back and I would recommend this to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind comments. Your remark about fishing off our private dock and that we are close to everything, the beach included, is what we enjoy about our villa also. We also find it peaceful as you did and sitting on our private dock in the morning for coffee or in the evening with family or friends watching the wildlife or fish jumping is a fantastic experience.

Comfortable and Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this villa was comfortable and relaxing. We have been coming to Hilton Head for many years and this was our favorite Villa. The proximity to the ocean and pool are excellent, fishing off the back deck was relaxing and great for the kids.

Better than on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Palmetto Dunes for 10 years and this was our first visit to Ocean Cove. We actually preferred the view of the lagoon and the quietness of the complex over staying directly on the beach. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed renting a kayak and docking it right out the back door. We also loved the location - so close to everything for biking. We will be back!
