About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)


UPDATES: We're renovated our upstairs king master bath! It has a tiled shower, double sink vanity, and lots of storage. New photos just added. ALSO, Our patio living space is now roomier, with a new concrete patio! And our new Weber grill will make your cookouts a dream.

Welcome to paradise in Ocean Cove Club, the most convenient location in beautiful Palmetto Dunes! Our comfortable villa is well-equipped, and close to all the action.

And with keyless entry, there are no keys to keep up with while you take in the sights, or soak in the sun. Just enter a code, and come and go as you please.

The beach is a mere block from the front door, down a concrete-paved beach path. And although all the beach at Palmetto Dunes is gorgeous, there is a higher density of folks on the south gate side of the resort, and we are on the less populated North gate side of the resort. That means there'll be fewer people than on the south gate side, and therefore less trouble finding your perfect spot of sand!

Also about a block away is the Dunes House Grill, where you can enjoy a cool drink or sandwich by the ocean. The Marriott resort, the Robert Trent Jones golf course, tennis center, The General store, bike and kayak rentals are about 2 blocks away. Big Jim's Barbecue at the Trent Jones clubhouse serves up tasty fare and you can walk or ride your bike the 2 blocks to get there.

Attending a conference at the Marriott? Why not rent our villa and bring your family along? You can walk to your meeting and be close enough to meet up with your family for meals or breaks. Plus, you'll have more room and flexibility than a hotel room.

Shelter Cove Marina and Harbor is just across highway 278, where you can shop, dine, hire a fishing charter or rent kayaks. Shter Cove Towne Center is adjacent to the Harbor area, where there is a super Kroger store, plus numerous choices for shopping and dining. Everthing is convenient!

Our villa sleeps 8-9 and is perfect for families, couples, gatherings of old friends, or special getaways. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will enjoy the 3 acclaimed golf courses, and the fabulous tennis center within Palmetto Dunes. From the community dock (about 20 yards yards from our back patio) that borders the 11-mile lagoon , you can fish, lounge, or just relax. Even closer is the community pool, about 30 steps from our back patio! Our patio has a sling dining set that seats six comfortably! And a chaise lounge to relax and enjoy your favorite book or a snooze.

There are two bedrooms upstairs, and one on the main floor, all with private baths, cable TV, DVD players, and closets. The master king bedroom on the second floor is bright and cheery, with a wall of glass and a large balcony that overlooks the patio. The other upstairs bedroom has 2 twins, a rollaway twin bed (that could be used in another bedroom if needed), and a small balcony. A small bit of the pool is visible just through the trees from both of these bedrooms. The queen master bedroom is on the first floor with direct access to a small patio that borders the main patio.

The roomy desk on the upstairs landing is perfect for your laptop, hobbies, or for keeping an enjoyable puzzle always available and off the dining table.

Queen sleeper sofa and loveseat in the living room, new in 2014! Also in the living room, you'll find a flat screen HDTV with DVR digital cable box, and a Blu-Ray/DVD/CD player with small video library for your enjoyment. Some kids games, blocks, and puzzles are also provided. Secured wi-fi is provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans and glassware. There's a blender, large stock pots for your shrimp boils, wine glasses, drink coozies, even a coffee grinder! Past guests have all commented on how well stocked our kitchen is! And we even have A GAS GRILL!!!

An outside closet has 4-6 beach chairs, beach cart, umbrella(s), some kid's beach toys, pool noodles and a couple boogie boards. A convenient outdoor shower in the utility area just off the kitchen makes it easy to leave the sand outside where it belongs!

We have a manager to address any problems that may arise.

For those new to Hilton Head, there are so many things to do! First and foremost, the beach is incredible! Then there's shopping, golf, tennis, miniature golf, horseback riding, great restaurants, boating, dolphin and nature tours, fishing or sailing charters, kayaking, and bike paths around much of the island.

For those familiar with Hilton Head, you KNOW how great it is, so what are you waiting for? Come on down! We look forward to your visit at our beautiful villa!

Minimum age requirement of 25 for rentals. NO SMOKING, and NO PETS.

Best Place to Stay on Hilton Head Island

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th year my family and I stayed at this beautiful villa. I just can't say enough good things about it. We love that it is less than 500 steps to the beach (clocked by Garmin!). The pool is right out the back door but yet, because of the landscaping, you really can't see the pool when you are sitting on the back patio--privacy & convenience!. My grandkids love that the General Store with its soft serve ice cream and awesome breakfast is just a short walk or an even shorter bike ride away. The villa is spacious, clean, well equipped and so comfortable. I always tell people that Hilton Head is our favorite place on earth and this villa is one of our favorite things about Hilton Head.

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week on Hilton Head Island. The house was spacious, clean, and had everything you could possibly need. It looks exactly like the pictures. The beach was a very short walk down the beach access path. I saw my first alligator at the lagoon. I would recommend this house. If we go back to Hilton Head I will rent this house again. Thanks Pam for sharing your beautiful home.

Fantastic place in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great way to spend a week with family and friends on beautiful Hilton Head Island. The villa was clean, spacious and exactly as Pam described with all the conveniences of home but only a short walk to the beach. We rented bicycles and were able to experience the island by venturing onto the numerous bike trails everywhere in the area. There were enough restaurants (I believe close to 250) on the island and we never had a bad meal in any of our adventures away from the villa. We will most definitely be staying with Pam again in the very near future.

Enjoyed our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this condo. The beach was an easy walk for my 6 and 3-yr old grand children. We kayaked on the lagoon and enjoyed walking in the area. Pam was most helpful w directions and check in information. Hope to come again.

Your search is over!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful family week in Hilton Head based at this great villa. As the one who selected this property, I was a hero! Pamela was an excellent host with easy directions and villa info. The house was very clean, spacious and had everything that we could need. You just can't beat this location for activities, beach access, bike rental, restaurants and even live music locations. We loved that the pool was just steps from the back patio which was the perfect spot for alfresco dining. We also really appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and cart which were provided. I would highly recommend this property to everyone.

Great Vacation in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in Hilton Head! This villa is very close to the beach and it was an easy walk for my young daughters (3 and 5 years old). The pool and lagoon are also right outside the back door which worked out great. We sat on the deck by the lagoon in the morning or evening and we saw a lot of wildlife which my daughters absolutely loved. The villa was very well decorated and in great condition. It is exactly as depicted in the photos. We only had 5 people but it easily could have accomodated a couple more people. This villa is also very close to a lot of shopping and great restuarants including Shelter's Cove. I highly recommend this place.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning/linen $150 + Tax
Tax Rate 10.0%

Printed rates above include rent. Cleaning/linen fee and 10% tax are additional, and will be added by the website if you request a quote. VRBO is now charging an additional Service Fee. This goes directly to VRBO, NOT ME. I have no control over that fee, and I think guests should complain to VRBO about it. Car passes are an additional $15 per car per week, payable to Palmetto Dunes upon entry for stays less than 28 days. Printed nightly rates are based on a 4 night stay. Longer stays may receive a lower nightly rate. Inquire. Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Multi-week stays will require a deposit greater than $500.
