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. (It is actually an END-2BR villa with 180 degree views. We rent it as a 1BR only). 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 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!

Owner purchased this Condo in 2004

Why Owner chose Shelter Cove

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.

                                                                This was just what I needed the views of the river and closeness to the marina were perfect. I enjoyed just relaxing in the recliners and watching the birds and I did see several Dolphin. I could not have asked for a better place to unwind, relax and rejuvenate.

                                                                Owner's Response:

Her personal touch made us feel very welcome. This condo is gorgeous!! The view is spectacular and very relaxing. Although there were TVs in both the living room and bedroom, we spent most of our time looking out the windows! The condo is tastefully decorated and well stock with all the necessary items. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. The bed was comfortable and provided a good night’s sleep. The location was perfect for our needs. This is the best rental on the island! We look forward to returning soon.

                                                                This was a nice condo in a great location in Shelter Cove Marina. Easy walking distance to the marina with shops, restaurants, boat rentals and water sports. Bus service to the beach in Palmetto Dunes. Wonderful views of marsh and waterway and excellent views of fireworks on Tuesday night during the summer.

The condo is clean, comfy & it has everything one needs. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Beautiful rooms & lovely bathrooms. We loved our stay there. Sherry the owner is such a sweetheart so very accommodating. We were so pleased with our time there & we would go back again!!!!

                                                                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.

                                                                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.
