About the property

Condo,2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Looking for a GREAT COUPLE'S GETAWAY? This is a unique Captains Quarters villa with 'one-of-a-kind' open spaces overlooking the intercoastal waterway and beautiful lights of Shelter Cove Harbor. Walk less than five minutes to the harbor. Watch boats.

Listen to music wafting in the air as you pass the restaurants. Join the Shanon Tanner Show or sit back on enjoy the "firework show" from your balcony. Bike paths are at your door as well. Not to mention renting a kayak or taking a boat cruise....

A Special Feature in addition to the stay is easy access to the beaches in Palmetto Dunes. If you choose, you may opt for a beachfront parking pass in Palmetto Dunes during your stay. This is made possible by our ownership of beachfront property. This is especially vauluable in 'high season'.

260 Captains Quarters has lovely travertine stone in the entry which transtitions into hardwood floors den and bedroom spaces. This is a stylish getaway crafted with adult couples in mind.

This 1BR villa that has TWO BALCONIES from which to take in the views of Shelter Cove. Both the den and the MBR balconies overlook the waterway from the harbor. In the summer, this is FRONT SEATING for fireworks!!!

This is a very spacious, 1200 sq ft villa. Because of the villa's 'fourth floor' elevation and the 'large open windows', guests have dynamic views to watch boats entering and exiting the harbor. The seasons also bring interesting sea creatures and waterbirds. Sea otters and porpoises can marvel and soothe those that watch. Whether on the balcony or relaxing in reclining chairs, one feels awed bye nature. The night lights of the harbor create intimate charm as well.

Its decor is upscale and soothing for those wanting a quiet getaway while visiting Hilton Head Island. The kitchen table is bar hieght and definitely provides elevation to enjoy the views while eating.

Captains Quarters is a wonderful complex. Both pool and jacuzzi are a short walk down the steps or elevator. Many guests prefer the CALM of this complex to retreat from the busier crowds after beaching is over. Security gates assist in managing the parking and use of the facilities. Feelings of quiet and seclusion are part of the experience.

During the Summer, when you're ready, call the Palmetto Dunes Shuttle Buggy for free personalized service to and from the beach in Palmetto Dunes. The ten passenger van (with plenty of room for golf clubs, tennis racquets, as well as coolers or shopping bags- depending on your destination)offers personalized service when you call ahead.

Another preferred travel mode is biking in the lush vegetation of Shelter Cove which meanders into the paths of Palmetto Dunes and most locations on the Island. Early or late night walks around the paths of the harbour are great ways to start or end the day.

Shelter Cove Harbour contains live-entertainment at several eateries starting in the Spring. Musical concerts played from a small pavilion and fireworks off your balcony each Tuesday night in the summer are part of the package.

The MASTER bedroom contains a KING bed. The Master Bath contains a walk-in shower, recently remodeled in travertine and seamless glass. The bedroom has a private balcony with sitting area.

Everything about the villa is large and spacious. Again, the bedding,furnishings and decor are best suited for adults.

Don't miss marking it as a place you'll want to visit!!!

About The Owner

Golfers and Partners in many joys of life, we started our visits to Hilton Head in the 1970's.

Our family has enjoyed the beaches. We've also captained a boat from the Shelter Cove Harbor for a few years, though this is no longer.

Hilton Head is our place to retreat and to play. While we own oceanfront properties as well, this is 'our favorite'.

Thanks for reviewing the site!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

It is a 'getaway' whether it's winter or summer. Its views are as grand as the ocean to us.

What makes this condo unique

We LOVE sitting on the den balcony and watching the boats, the waterlife and birds. It's an easy jaunt to beaching and golfing in Palmetto Dunes.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at 260 Captain's Quarters last week. The condo was very clean, and the kitchen is well supplied. The furniture was very comfortable!

We are planning on repeating our stay next May around the same time. I will keep you posted.

Sincerely, A.Lozon

A place to return to

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how wonderful this condo is. The furnishings and view were A-one.

For me the kitchen was a dream, even had two different coffee makers (drip and K-cup). Never had that in any condo that we have stayed in before on Hilton Head. Wish my kitchen at home was that beautiful.

When you book this unit and enter it, you'll feel the comfort and know your stay is going to be great.

Hurricane Matthew cut our stay short. What time we had was enjoyable due to having an awesome place.

Owners are good people, sent us an e-mail immediately to see how we were because of the mandatory evacuation.

Stunning condo, from view to decor!

  • 5 of 5

You will definitely be thrilled with this condo, from the moment you walk through the door...we were! It is beautifully decorated, the view is awesome, and Sherry has provided renters with everything you could possibly need!

There are two comfortable but tasteful recliners, where you can watch the amazing water and marsh views...and TV at same time, if you like. You can dine inside at table or bar or as we chose often, on two porches with dining tables and comfortable chairs. We particularly enjoyed dining outside one night to watch the spectacular fireworks display, which you could not have a better seat for!...very close!

Everything about this condo is luxurious! Linens, mattress, pillows, all top of the line and super comfy! Beautiful cabinets and granite in kitchen and baths. Top of the line appliances, and even a Keurig!

We enjoyed the location, quieter than being on the marina or above the restaurants, although only a couple minutes walk to them. Several nice restaurants 5-10 minute walk, we enjoyed the Mexican restaurant, fun place with live music most nights. Beach was few minute drive and extra parking pass provided by owners made it a very easy trip to beach. Kayaking, fishing boats, and other water activities are a few minutes walk away also.

I could go on but suffice it to say, this condo is our favorite place to stay in Hilton Head!

We hope to be back SOON!

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all. Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you would want. The view makes all the difference when visiting the ocean. The Hubs and I like to sit on the balcony in the mornings to drink our coffee. When it got a little warm for us we sat in front of the huge window in the living room. We saw boats,kayaks, Dolphins, and all those ocean sightings we love to see.

Sherry was a pleasure to rent from. We hope to go again!

Luxurious accommodations overlooking intercoastal waterway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Loved the porches, the nice breezes gazing out onto the marshes. Lots of boats, kayaks, egrets and dolphins that you can enjoy watching from the condo. Pool and hot tub was pleasant after a day at the beach. A great plus renting this condo is that the owner has a condo at Captains Walk, so you can park there to go to the beach. There are beach chair/umbrella rentals, and it's not as crowded as the public beaches of Palmetto Dunes. Shelter Cove is an easy walk to look at the boats, shops, and have dinner at several restaurants without leaving the vicinity. There is a covered bike shelter to stow your bikes, and great riding paths throughout Palmetto Dunes. Our favorite restaurant is Hudson's (the BEST crabcake ever!). The Quarterdeck is nice in Sea Pines overlooking the water for the sunset and great fish! If you're there on a Saturday, that's the time to go out to eat. Not crowded at all. Poseidon was good too. Right down the road. Can't say enough about this unit. Private, very comfortable, a wonderful romantic getaway spot!

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

You never know what you might get by booking a place on the Internet. This was perhaps the nicest condo we have ever rented. Upscale and very clean, it had everything anyone could want to make their stay comfortable. I feel like the owners are now old friends. We loved to sit out on the terrace and have a glass of wine. The view was great seeing the boats come and go from the marina. We also saw dolphins playing along the shoreline. When we return to Hilton Head you can bet we will return to this condo.

Shelter Cove is Hilton Head's Mid-Island location. You can easily enjoy the beaches across the Main Corridor of HWY 278 which leads you onto the Island. There is a Beach Buggy Shuttle Bus, or you can take your car and drive less than 5-10 minutes ( depends on the one light) and stack a place on the beach for the day.

Restaurants are within walking distance, or certainly they join most areas of Hilton Head of being close and having easy access.
