About Charles and Diane Serson

My wife and I retired and enjoy Hilton Head Island. Once you come to Hilton Head Island there is nothing better. We enjoy vacationing, traveling and playing golf. There is nothing better than spending time at the pool or beach and then just relaxing on the balcony and viewing the marina and listening to the nightly entertainment. My favorite time of the day is to watch the sunset. What a view.

Charles and Diane Serson purchased this villa in 2010

Why Charles and Diane Serson chose Shelter Cove

We stayed at Hilton Head many times and always talked about owning our own villa on the island. After retiring, this has now become our dream come true. It has everything that one would want and you don't even have to leave the harbour. There are seven restaurants, a bakery, entertainment and just a relaxing place to be.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy our villa and just traveling about the island. There is always something happening and new things to enjoy. We both enjoy golf and fine dining which is, of course, found at Hilton Head.

Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks at this villa and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. Although we had a vehicle and did leave for golfing and exploring the area from time to time, best all was walking over to get the morning newspaper and sitting on the benches by the water. No need to leave at all as there are restaurants and shops right there which made for an extremely relaxing vacation. We highly recommend this villa..... very clean and supplied with everything you need. We can't wait to go back next year!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was so relaxing we did not want to leave the villa. It was well equipped with everthing you could possibly need and very beautifully decorated. Three balconies with such great views of the harbour, we enjoyed amazing sunsets each night. If we ever come back to Hilton Head we would definitely stay here again.

Excellent villa in Shelter Cove!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for us. LOCATION! Right over the marina, with the entertainment stage just below the balcony so we could sit and enjoy while enjoying the view, beverages, food in our own space. We stayed with our two children and found there was a good amount of space, since there were two full baths. Pool and gated parking are awesome. Villa is clean, current and well laid out. Did I mention LOCATION? I brought our own boat, and was able to harbor it right below our balcony. I could keep an eye on it, and a quick walk down to hop on and go. Fireworks were amazing for a weekly show as well, exceeded everyone's expectations.

My Husband and I stayed here in July. It is an outstanding 1 bedroom villa in Shelter Cove, close to restaurants, shopping, family activities and everything Hilton Head has to offer. It has easy access to the Palmetto Dunes Beach, just across the street. Villa is very well appointed and has everything you need. Balconies have terrific views of Shelter Cove and there are miles of bike paths nearby. Complex has a very nice, large pool. We would be happy to stay here again

Loved it here!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a stay here and we absolutely loved it. The room was gorgeous and clean. The view of the marina was fantastic. We spent much time on the balconies just enjoying the marina. We rode bikes to the new Shelter Cove Towne Center easily. We would love to stay here again.
