Welcome To Our Villa!

From the moment you enter the private Evian resort gates, you'll know your in a special place and that this beautiful and spacious villa is going to exceed your expectations.

​"Makin Memrees" is a first floor, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, pet free and smoke free villa with lagoon and lake views. Windows on three sides offer stunning views of semi-tropical vegetation including moss-draped oaks, magnolias, pines, and palmettos as well as the abundant wildlife that is natural to the area. Hilton Head Island is home to a wide array of wildlife, including numerous species of land and water mammals, and reptiles, and our location enjoys an abundance of exotic birds, alligators, turtles, squirrels, and deer. You'll be entertained for hours.

This villa is located near the center of the resort and provides the quickest and easiest access to all of the many, unmatched amenities you will want to enjoy while vacationing here.

All of these amenities are easily accessible from the patio:


* One minute walk to unlimited free tennis.
* Two minute walk to the private swimming pool.
* Only a few steps to miles of walking and biking paths. Hilton Head has nearly 60 miles of public pathways.
* Only a few steps to the foot-bridge over the lagoon, and fishing in the lake.
* Two gazebos and numerous benches surround the lake offering places to sit and read or relax and take in the beauty of this sub-tropical paradise.

Here is the layout

The master suite:

The patio which is accessible from both master bedroom and dining room thru French doors is one that you will want to take home with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our story began in 1964 when we met as freshmen at Louisiana Tech University. Earl was the guy whose feet Marilyn tripped over each time she walked into Dr. Thompson's history class. Marilyn was the gal who tripped over Earl's feet. That was all there was to the relationship until things changed later in the semester. The rest is history, as they say, with vows exchanged in 1968, careers in education for Marilyn and in the retail supermarket industry for Earl, a daughter along the way in 1971, and now three beautiful grandchildren. It was with our daughter, her husband, and our three grandchildren that we first visited Hilton Head Island in 2012. Although we all live in the Atlanta area, we migrated from Louisiana and every vacation centered around the beach. Most of the time, those beaches were located in Florida or Alabama, but something happened when we traveled to Hilton Head Island. So struck were we by the beauty, "non-touristy", and family-friendly atmosphere that we knew we would be returning there soon. Even before we left that week, Earl was already looking for a place to call their second home. Everyone in the family just said "yea sure...", everyone except Earl. Returning in December, we began an extensive search which ended when we walked into this villa. The floor plan and the large rooms, satisfied the need for a comfortable, roomy home for our family, but when we walked to the back door and stepped out onto the patio, we told the realtor we could stop looking. We truly felt, and still do, that there isn't a better location anywhere on the island. We spend about every 6th-8th week at "makin memrees" and welcome guests from near and far the rest of the time. This has become a wonderful place for our family to gather and "make memrees", but we have gained the added advantage of knowing that we've played a part in helping so many other families and groups of friends do the same. We welcome the opportunity to have you visit "makin memrees" soon!

Why the Owner Chose Hilton Head Island, SC, USA:
We have always been impressed with the relaxed, family atmosphere that Hilton Head Island provides. The many miles of bike and walking paths and the many other amenities available including the wide expanse of beach, the many sporting activities, and the shopping and dining attractions make this an outstanding vacation retreat. Evian has more amenities within walking distance from the villa than most other areas of HHI and they don't cost extra.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Evian is truly a remarkable place. The views from this villa, and the access to all of Evian's amenities from this first floor villa are simply the best. Where else can you fish, relax, enjoy all of the wildlife, play tennis for free, enjoy the pool, bike or walk safely on the many miles of paths, and enjoy the beach, plus much more without getting in your car. You won't want to leave!
