In addition to Shannon, Cappy and the harbor front vendors, don’t miss the Community Market and Summer Jams just down the street at our Shelter Cove Community Park! The community market heats up at 4:30 with more than 20 produce, food and retail vendors. DJs keep the tempo lively while daredevil youngsters thrill to the beat with the Kid Zone, Bungee Jump, Rockwall, Zip-line and Putt Putt Golf!!! Stay here or head back to your villa balcony for the grand finale because at dusk the sky sizzles with a fireworks display seen for miles from right here in our own harbor.

All this family friendly fun, is just steps from your villa. Prefer an air conditioned ride?

The Palmetto Dunes Buggy, a fleet of complimentary passenger vans, is on call servicing anywhere in the vicinity of Palmetto Dunes/Shelter Cove. This is the best way to get around if you are new to the area!

This is the second time my family has rented from Harborside III. The first time we enjoyed it very much. Found the condo to be very nicely maintained, spacious and very comfortable. So when we looked for another rental this year (2016) previous stay was in (2014) we trusted this complex. The condo we had this time was just one down from the other one, same floor. We were in 7428 most recently. The feel of this condo was much different than I remember the other one to be. The first thing I noticed was the terrible smell- like overload of fragrance. Fortunately I found it was a horrible air freshener in the kitchen so I unplugged that. Second thing- it was very dim. It has lots of Windows but just seemed pretty low lit all times of the day. My son went to use the bathroom (2nd bathroom) and discovered a pair of underwear that had been left behind the door. So obvious when it was cleaned nobody looked behind the door (or mopped behind the door) the master bathroom had a strong mildew/mold odor and when I took the first shower it is very clear where this is coming from. The entire plumbing wall side of the shower is damaged and soft and probably has vicious mold growing behind the tiles. You can see multiple attempts to patch damage w caulk which has just peeled away. The shower also seems to leak a dramatic amount of water towards the vanity. There is a short glass partition that looks like an attempt to remedy this, but it does nothing. I started putting full sized towels on the tub to try to keep the water at bay. The mirror adjacent to the shower has lots of water damage and the wall is also soft so sure the mold is spreading there too. The exhaust fan in that room is for sound effect only as it doesn't move the air one bit. The kitchen. The dishwasher has seen way better days, my guess is it is >15 yrs old. Doesn't clean well at all. Many dishes were chipped. Our ice maker did not work, but worse yet, it leaked into the main fridge. So open the fridge and found a good amount of water on top shelves. Used paper towels to try to keep water soaked up. We did report this to the management and to their credit- they did react quickly, but nothing was fixed. They put a glass under the leak which I emptied 1-2 times per day. The furniture felt "slick" from lots of use. I was never really comfortable sitting on any surface in there. Last thing: Shannon tanner. I knew he played there, what I didn't remember was how LOUD it would be in the condo.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We came to Hilton Head Island as we normally do. This time we stumbled across Harbourside III. The condo was beautiful, updated, and had everything we needed for our stay. There was a shopping complex only 5 minutes away. We had access to the plantation across the highway, and had an amazing dinner at Alexander's.

This is the perfect place to stay, the people in the office were very friendly as well. I would recommend this property to all my friends!!!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Not having been to Shelter Cove before, we did not know what to expect. My family and I were surprised to find out what Shelter Cove had to offer - live music played at various bars/restaurants, lots of shopping and if you like to watch people, this is the place to be. This was our first time to stay in a marina and we were just awed with the view from our condo. The condo was very comfortable for a party of 6. It had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. The only suggestion I can possibly make at this time is that the carpets could use some cleaning as there were visible spots on the hallway and by the dining area. We will definitely be back!
