What a great vacation you're bound to have! We have a very nicely decorated and very comfortable 1 bedroom townhouse right in the heart of the Shelter Cove Marina, which is a part of the well known Palmetto Dunes Plantation. Shelter Cove is Hilton Head's largest marina.
OUR TOWNHOUSE IS A CORNER UNIT WITH AWESOME FULL HARBOR VIEWS. The living area has a dining room with a greenhouse window wall and a glass top table with seating for 6. You'll also be amazed when you see the 2 walls of glass in the living room...giving our place a terrific bright and open feeling.
Not just 1 but 2 balconies to enjoy...one that has some morning sun and a great view of Shelter Cove's courtyard and the 14' bronze statue of Neptune...and a nice view of some of the harbor too. The other balcony has fabulous full views of the marina and, in season, great afternoon sun and beautiful evening sunsets. Also during the high season, you also get a weekly fireworks display over the harbor...and you have a front row seat from your balcony.
Our kitchen has recently been remodeled. New cognac colored cabinets, granite tops and all stainless appliances.
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. Waters sports (fishing, kayaking, sightseeing, etc), lots of stores for shopping and a ton of restaurants all around the harbor, most with al fresco dining...even a restaurant that offers a 'doggie menu' for your pooch to eat along side of you!
Most of the harbor front restaurants offer al fresco dining with live entertainment. There's even an amphitheater/pavilion maybe 100' away from our balcony that has live entertainment for you during the high season...it's very popular and gathers a nice crowd...and it's great fun for the kids too.
In season, there is a free shuttle 'buggy' that will pick you up right next to our building. It takes you around the Palmetto Dunes Plantation including our private beach house and the country store. And just a few blocks away from the marina is the new Shelter Cove Town Centre. An outdoor mall of stores, restaurants, park, entertainment pavilion and a huge Kroger's to do your grocery shopping.
We are part of the Palmetto Dunes Preferred Rentals Program. As our guest, you'll receive a special ID that entitles you to discounted golf, tennis, bike rentals, even kayak & canoe rentals in Palmetto Dunes. You can enjoy the extensive lagoon system in your kayak or canoe, even try your luck with some fishing. This ID card is one of the perks you get renting from us.
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!
Our townhouse is large. It has almost 1,300sf of living space. The villa is nicely decorated and very comfortable...more like a year 'round place to live than a rental unit. As you enter, there's a powder room, then the kitchen. The dining room is ahead with a greenhouse window wall. Then as you pass by the open kitchen with counter and stools, you see the expansive living area with 2 walls of glass and the 2 balconies. And there's a queen sleeper sofa in the living room for the kids or your guests to use. If you let us know in advance, we can provide an air mattress...some of our guests have enjoyed using it on the balcony when the weather is comfortable to sleep out there.
To get upstairs to the master bedroom suite, up the spiral staircase. Once you're upstairs, you'll find a huge master bedroom with a sitting nook and a large platform whirlpool tub that's open to the bedroom. There's also a vanity with double sink and a separate area with the shower and toilet.
We offer rentals throughout the year. Weekly prices run from $895 to $1,195 depending on the time of the year and if your week is during a holiday or special event like the Heritage 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, especially during the winter months for all of you 'snow birds'.
We accept personal and bank checks. We also accept credit card payments through Paypal. Payment via Paypal and Homeaway are subject to an additional service charge.
By the way, for all of you TV buffs we now have we have a 55' big screen LED-HDTV with DVD in the living room and a 40' big screen LCD-HDTV in the bedroom. Both have the preferred channel lineup.
And for all of you that can't leave your computer at home, we now have internet in the villa.
Another by the way, we also have a beautiful 2 bedroom villa just 3 doors away from our townhouse. If you have family or friends that you're looking to vacation with you and you need to rent more than 1 villa, why not consider both of ours. If interested, see VRBO #314006. It's also pet friendly.

Hi, we're Sue & Mike, the owners. We have owned our nearby 2 bedroom villa for about 1 year. Then while we were vacationing in the 2 bedroom this past winter...to get away from the terrible winter the northeast was having...we saw this townhouse. We were blown away at how nice it was. We liked everything about it. We wasted no time to buy it. Now we'd like to share our beautiful villa with you! We're sure you will completely enjoy your stay, whether for a week, month or the entire winter.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Owner chose Shelter Cove
Shelter Cove is a fun place to stay. Every conceivable sort of water sport, fantastic atmosphere. Seems like something is going on all the time, whether on the harbor or in Shelter Cove. Never boring. You can easily stay at Shelter Cove for a week's vacation. Between all the things to do and see, restaurants to go to and plenty of live entertainment, you don't have to leave the harbor. except of course to spend some time at our beach. But of course you will, Hilton Head has too much to offer to ignore.
What makes this Villa unique

Great townhome and location!
Our family spent a long weekend at Mike and Sue's townhouse for spring break and were very impressed. The home was clean and well maintained upon arrival. The property owners were very responsive and sent us all of the information we needed to enjoy our stay. The location is great, with two great balcony views overlooking the harbor and local shops, and the property is walking distance to multiple restaurants/bakery. We found the home to be very spacious and comfortable despite having four people and a dog. The membership we received with Planation Dunes was also a great perk and made for many things to do without leaving the resort. Would definitely recommend this property for your vacation in Hilton Head!
What a pleasure it was to stay at Mike and Sue’s condo. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. Everything we needed was provided and Mike was very helpful in making sure all our needs were met. The location on Shelter Cove is perfect. Several quality restaurants to choose from just steps away and we took full advantage of the shuttle service to and from the dune house which made getting to and from the beach very convenient. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful Condo. Wonderful View of Marina
Mike and Sue have a wonderful property with incredible views of the marina. It’s a restful place with everything you need for a marvelous stay. Everything you need is within walking distance or a five minute drive which makes this condo so convenient. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We have been visiting HHI for almost 20 years and we've dealt with several rentals through those years, but none have been as accomodating as Mike and Sue. Very nice villa with 2 great views from the balconies. One overlooking Neptune and the other overlooking the harbour. Mike & Sue are great to work with and I would highly recommend them and their units to anyone. We have stayed in both their 2 bedroom villa and now their 1 bedroom villa and have been happy with both. Very clean and well maintained. I'm sure you will be happy with them too!

I do believe my comments were taken wrong about the interior of this villa
I am an interior designer in va. and as this is my profession in my mind I'm always decorating the places I am in .... houses, restaurants, offices etc...
It most definitely does not mean not approving of this villas interiors....
Again great place
Love all the family activities
Great mid-island location
My husband and I will definitely be back next year
Great contact with owners

The place we stayed at was lovely. It was well furnished and very comfy. The kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking needs. The condo had 2 patios which were really nice. The one was huge and was really nice to sit out and relax during the evening. Downstairs was a good selection of food and stores and the marina was pretty. Overall it is a great place to stay.
In high season, weekly fireworks display over the harbor. Enjoy a 'front row seat' from our balcony.
