About Rita and Jim Skelton

This will be our third home on Hilton Head Island. We started coming to Hilton Head in 1991 and purchased our first property back in 2000, then a Villa in 2007, and in July 2012, we purchased 38 Full Sweep.

Rita and Jim Skelton purchased this house in 2012

Why Rita and Jim Skelton chose Hilton Head Island

We found this property offered us the opportunity to renovate and decorate as we wished. With a great backyard space, the lagoons views, an easy walk to the beach and serene enough to have a relaxing vacation.

What makes this house unique

The property is a bungalow style with large windows and great views of the pool, spa, lagoon and golf course. And easy access for guests who don't like stairs!

Rented this house the week of 8/12/17 and we absolutely loved the home, backyard, pool and it's overall location. I would highly recommend it. House was immaculate. Beach is just a 10 min walk. Rita was great to work with!!!

We highly recommend this excellent vacation home.

Not only is it a beautifully appointed house and grounds but the owners are very attentive to and care about their guests' experience.

Their pride of ownership and service excellence are very obvious and welcome.

My husband and I have stayed at various spots in HHI over the years and this is the best BY FAR.

This home is everything the reviewers say. Definitely a 5 out of 5 star home.

Thank you Rita and Jim.

Yearly Tradition!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I travel with our sons every year to Rita and Jim's house for our annual Mother and Son's trip and we've always had an amazing time. Beautiful house - always something new done to it each year. Great location - our boys love the morning walk/bike ride to the beach to find shells. Fantastic pool - great patio for our BBQ dinners. Rita and Jim have always been attentive owners, checking in during our stay and always have great suggestions of new things to try in the area. I work in the hospitality industry and their service, attention to detail and their genuine care about their property and ensuring we have a great time, is priceless.

Thank you Rita and Jim can't wait till August!

Best property we have stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Hilton Head every summer for vacation and have stayed in multiple villas and homes. Rita and Jim's house by far exceeds them all. You can tell by talking to them that they are very attentive owners and then when you arrive at the house it is even more evident. The pictures are great, however, they cannot really do justice to how nice and peaceful this home is. It sits on the lagoon and overlooks #9 of the RJT course, so is very private and quiet. When I was e-mailing Jim and Rita about my final check, they responded that they were in HHI getting the home ready for the summer. I really was glad to hear this, as opposed to leaving it up to some rental company and it shows in the home. It is truly like being a private residence rather than a rental. The home has a very open floor plan and lots of windows to provide for natural light. The kitchen is great for cooking and even has a tv where the kids could sit and watch morning shows while eating breakfast. We love to grill and were excited that they had a gas grill, as many are charcoal and they even provide a backup tank if you need it. The pool and spa are great and stay very clean. They have very comfortable furniture by the pool and we would have breakfast and coffee out there every morning. They really have thought of everything. We really could not have asked for a better home and to top it off Jim and Rita are great owners and very responsive. They really did make our vacation a true relaxing experience.

If the house is as nice as the owners then it's worth every dime ...

  • 5 of 5

We actually never got to see the house as it was mistakenly double booked for us and we unfortunately drew the short straw ... but the owners Rita & Jim were exceptional in their willingness to assist in a search for another house as well as supplementing us due to the limited alternatives at the time ... we really appreciate the integrity of their response to the mistake and will definitely plan to try their house out in the future !!! RENT IN CONFIDENCE here ... thx again :)

Most amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying in HHI for the last 25 + years at different houses and condos in Palmetto Dunes. This year we stayed with just myself and my children instead of our extended family . I can honestly say it was the most amazing, beautiful , memorable vacations we have ever had ...words arent enough! The ease of check in to the meticulous accommodations made it so amazing and comfortable! I hope we will be able to stay again in 2015. Rita was so attentive and available although we did not need a thing! Myself and my children were blessed to stay here!
