Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This charming villa has been updated even more in 2016! New paint, furniture, master bathroom with large walk-in travertine shower, and a 55" Smart 4K UHD TV with Netflix subscription. See complete list of updates below.

When you arrive to my villa you immediately feel like you are in a charming beach cottage with the new beadboard ceilings, crown molding and shaker style kitchen.

This very bright villa is located in the popular complex within Palmetto Dunes called The Moorings. You can't get closer to the best beach in Hilton Head without paying ocean front prices. Within The Moorings Unit #31/32 you will be located in a quiet section on the end with a nice view of the landscape, directly adjacent to the amenities you will find at The Marriott. It is a simple walk to the beach and you will not need to cross or walk down any busy streets. A few steps through the oceanfront Beach Villa complex and your feet are in the sand! This comes in handy when you want to come back home during the day for a snack or break from the sun.

The layout of the villa offers a lot of privacy having the guest bedroom located off the entry way and the 2nd bedroom adjacent to the living room. Each bedroom has it own en suite bathroom. There is a bonus 3rd full bath located in the foyer which also contains the washer and dryer. This is convenient for guests who use the pullout sofa because they can have their own full bathroom as well.

The living room and bedrooms all have HDTV flat screen TVs and there is a DVR in the living room with access to Netflix. You can record your favorite shows to watch while relaxing after a fun day in the sun!

There are 2 decks located off the living room which can be accessed from each bedroom as well. One of the decks offers a view of the pool so you can check up on your kids swimming while you make dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. The other deck is very private, if you prefer to just relax with a good book and a glass of wine. Because this is a second floor unit the decks are not covered, which bring a lot of natural light into the unit. New patio furniture has been purchased with a table and chairs with cushions and an umbrella. The perfect place for a nice breakfast or dinner al fresco!

The villa is located within the gated community of Palmetto Dunes which is home to 3 world-class golf courses (Robert Trent Jones, Arthur Hills and George Fazio) and the award-winning Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center. You can walk over to the Outfitters to rent your bikes, kayaks, fishing gear or canoes to use through the 11 mile lagoon. Biking is very popular in Hilton Head because of the numerous miles of biking paths and wide beaches with packed sand.

You can also walk to the General Store to get your daily newspaper and a delicious breakfast sandwich. They offer some grocery selections and convenience foods as well as beer, wine, spirits, etc. Shelter Cove Marina is only a mile away and an easy bike ride. Fireworks are shown every Tuesday night during the summer months where you will also find live entertainment. The Dunes Buggy free shuttle is also available to take you to the shopping or entertainment in Shelter Cove during the busier season.

With this villa being centrally located on the island you can quickly access all of the local attractions. Stopping by the Dunes House restaurant on your way home from the beach for a cold beer, burger or fish tacos will be the perfect end to your day. The convenience of everything will make your vacation that much more relaxing.

I am pleased that my villa is part of the Palmetto Dunes Preferred Partner program. This will allow you the following discounts on golf, tennis and various rentals at the Outfitter's. You will find the discount codes inside the villa.

*8-10% off tee times at all three Palmetto Dunes Golf Courses: Arthur Hills, George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones

Why Mara Russeau chose South Carolina

I was lucky enough to work on the island the summer after I graduated from college, and I have been coming back for family vacations ever since. People who come to Hilton Head create so many great memories they choose to come back year after year!

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy walking, running, biking on the beach, so we like the convenience of being able to take many trips to the beach each day, as well as the proximity to the world class Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center and golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time in Hilton Head! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It is beautiful, the location was awesome and we just could not have had a more perfect time. Between biking, runs on the beach, eating out and enjoying the beach our days and nights there are packed with great memories. Thanks again for everything, we cannot wait to return.

Lovely condo in Palmetto Dunes!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, private, nicely decorated. Mara was quick to respond to any questions, etc. The condo was right by the pool and a 2 minute walk to the beach. Great location!

Super Nice Condo with a short walk to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here from September 2-8, 2017. This condo is well decorated and looks just like it is pictured. It was great to get to stay at a place that was so close to the beach. We wish we could gotten to stay longer but had to leave a day early due to hurricane Irma might be coming to HHI. Thank Goodness that it missed Hilton Head and went in another direction. Mara is great to work with and we didn't have any issues with her condo. We hope to get to come back here next year.

Great family condo

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week in Hilton Head. Great condo accommodating 3 generations. Unit was clean and bright, updated and well supplied. Perfect location in the Moorings - overlooking the pool and a very short walk to the beach. We were attending a week-long function at the Marriott which was just on the other side of the fence (my grandchildren even found a shortcut thru the fence). Mara was terrific. She responded to our inquiries very quickly. There was one very minor issue which could have waited until our stay was over, but she addressed it the same day. The island is made for walking and biking, so plan to rent a bike and ride away. We all hope to have the opportunity to visit Hilton Head again, and we would definitely stay at this villa.

Great Stay, Nice Unit

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at The Moorings which is one of the best locations in Palmetto Dunes, especially for beach access. Having a fully furnished condo is a plus. This unit is the most up-to-date unit we have stayed in. The furnishings are nice, the unit is clean and the kitchen had all the utensils we needed. The Keurig was a plus as well! We found this unit to be kid friendly with our 5yr old and 22 month old boys. The pool right below the unit is convenient as well. We have no complaints and the owner is easy to deal with and very prompt with responding. We were even able to check-in a bit early which was great.

We drove our crew cab truck and the parking area for the unit was a little tight for it, but it was manageable, especially since it was vacation!

Clean, Bright, Comfortable, Relaxing, Beachy!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in The Moorings for several years and love the convenience to the beach, along with the security of the Mariner area. This villa is definitely one we hope to book again! It was clean and stocked with everything we needed. The updated decor was extremely pleasing - the perfect beachy feel! We were steps from the pool and a few more to the beach. Loved the secluded location - absolutely no traffic! Each bedroom has additional fans which kept them super cool and great for sleeping in! We didn't even have to rent beach chairs or an umbrella, as they were provided. There is also a spigot outside to wash sand away. Can't think of anything that would have made this villa more perfect. Mara is very accommodating and responds extremely quickly with questions that arise throughout the booking process and trip. We rate this villa in our top 2 of all in The Moorings!
