About Pat Crews

Patty Crews is a realtor on Hilton Head Island, her husband Tom Crews is an architect

Pat Crews purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pat Crews chose Palmetto Dunes Plantation

We had previously owned a Main Sail and sold it to buy a house. We missed owning in this complex and bought this one to be certain we would always own a property in this fabulous, exciting, area. We have had villa newly painted, replaced all carpets with wood floors, put in new furnishings. . The villa is in beautiful, like new, condition.

What makes this villa unique

It is all about the view! The three bedroom model has the largest balcony and porch out of all the villa complexes on the island. In this climate you are living outdoors most of the time. There is always something going on in Shelter Cove. The beach is minutes away and is beautiful, but it is the harbor that comes alive later in the day. You have great restaurants, entertainment and shops all within walking distance. The pool is heated and is simply the best I have seen in Hilton Head.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Nielsens were great guests. They really took care of the villa. They will always be welcome to stay at Main Sail. Patty Crews

We only got to stay for 4 days unfortunately but Pat's place was perfect. The setup of the place is super and

all very clean. The view is so lovely and it is a perfect mix of peaceful yet a few steps away around the corner are restaurants and stores. It's so close to get to the beach and food stores. I would definitely recommend and we

can't wait to go back for a longer stay this time. It had everything and more that you needed. It was a home away from home. Thank you Pat.

Spectacular views and extra clean well maintained villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had stayed at Shelter Cove Marina at Main Sail earlier this year as well as last year. We kept trying to book this villa knowing that it had great reviews and was stated extra clean however due to family health issues our scheduled time just couldn't be met. We finally was booked for September 24th and once we entered the door we knew it was an extra special villa. The view of the Marina is awesome and spectacular due to the fact that you're practically a little above eye level and not three to five floors up. There are 3 porches to choose from that face the marina to view and enjoy the boats, yachts and other watercraft. The villa has been tastefully decorated with items that complement the atmosphere that surround you during your stay. The kitchen is updated with a wonderful large single sink basin with plenty of counter and cabinet space. All the bedrooms are pleasing to the eye as well as comfortable for your sleep. I believe the owners of this villa strive to keep it updated, clean and well maintained for their own enjoyment as well as for others. This villa does not disappoint.

Great Shelter Cove Property

  • 4 of 5

We rented this condo for a week in July. The location is great! It has plenty of space and is decorated beautifully! I loved walking out of the property in the morning and renting a kayak . It was a highlight of the trip. Although it's not on the ocean there is plenty to do and see. We could walk to so many places! The pool was great also. Patty was fantastic and had a lot of extras that most rentals don't have . We are considering renting this property again next year!

Amazing view and fantastic accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family with two grown kids and their spouses stayed at this GREAT condo for a week over the 4th of July. We spent 90% of our time on the balcony overlooking the harbor. It never got old watching the boats come and go, kayaks and paddle boarders all day long. We walked or rode our bikes to everything we needed. We rode our bikes to the store, beach and restaurants, and walked around the harbor for nightly entertainment and window shopping in the shops. Our adult kids enjoyed Miguel's for margaritas and we also ate at another restaurant which was less than a 3 minute walk. Pool was great too, and we used the grills by the pool several nights too. Kitchen was well stocked, appliances, beds, furniture and bathrooms were all good. It was the BEST place we have ever stayed on VRBO. Great, Great place. Patty owns the place and lives on the island, and was very helpful. Last thing to mention is the place was very very clean, and my wife is a clean freak.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and his brother and wife stayed in this beautiful condo for a week...wish we could have stayed longer. It's centrally located on the island and there are restaurants and some shopping practically right out the door. October was an excellent month to visit. We had sunny days every day. The guys golfed three different days and had a great time. Wonderful courses and lots of them. The two balconies are perfect for gazing out to the harbor with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in your hand. The bedrooms are very spacious as well as the bathrooms. Lots of closet space in each. Just strolling along the walkway around the harbor was fun and relaxing. We highly recommend this condo for couples, families or guys' or girls' getaway. We'll be back.

Car: not necessary

One of the finest resort destinations in the world, Palmetto Dunes/Shelter Cove is located at the heart of Hilton Head Island. Its 2000 acres, nestled on 3 miles of Atlantic Ocean beachfront, provide the perfect venue for 3 world class golf courses, an award winning tennis center and an 11 mile lagoon that invites guests in kayaks and canoes to share a pristine, natural environment with 40 species of birds and fish. Ever since it was envisioned as an ecologically friendly beach and harbour resort destination, Palmetto Dunes/ Shelter Cove has been winning accolades for the scope, beauty and quality of its activities and amenities. Readers of Conde Nast Traveler have named Palmetto Dunes/ shelter Cove one of the top 50 mainland resorts in the U.S. Vacationers never run out of things to do at this beautiful, 2000 acre locale. Whether you enjoy teeing off on three championship golf courses, exploring 50 miles of pave island pathways by bike, paddling along an 11 mile lagoon network, enjoying a surfing lesson, or beachcombing along 3 miles of pristine beaches, we offer more vacation activities than any other beach resort in the southeast. At your fingertips we offer world class tennis, surfing, fishing, shopping, dining fun for the kids, championship golf, nature, wildlife, breath taking views and on and on. Travel and Leisure Family rate us as the #1 Family Resort in the United State and Canada. Maybe it’s your first glimpse into this lush paradise—a world filled with palm trees and beach chairs, spacious expanses of immaculately manicured golf courses and tennis courts, a marina which plays host to boutiques, waterfront restaurants and the occasional pelican or dolphin. Throw in a dash of southern charm from the locals and a year-round balmy climate and you’ll know why “paradise” is the perfect descriptive.

In a way, Palmetto Dunes has two “front yards.” There is Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with its three miles of beach and the drama of the Atlantic Ocean. The other “front yard” is the wide expanse of Broad Creek and the waters that wash through the harbour. In the summer, five nights a week, hundreds of families gather to enjoy entertainer Shannon Tanner’s family-friendly show.

On Tuesday evenings, however, at sundown, thousands of people gather at Shelter Cove Harbour, at the community park, and in boats on the water to enjoy a fireworks display that is truly a celebration of not just Palmetto Dunes, but of the island itself. Whether an island visitor or resident, it seems like a spontaneous festival of life.

Every conceivable water sport can be enjoyed in the 15.5 acre marina of Shelter Cove, from deep sea fishing and inshore fishing charters to sport crabbing, sail and power boat rentals, sightseeing and nature excursions and dinner cruises. You also have waterfront shopping and dining, a wide array of specialty shops, quaint bistros, fine dining establishments , family-related and seasonal activities including Harbour Fest and a towering12 foot bronze statue of Neptune. This larger than life sundial serves as an iconic symbol of Shelter Cove Harbour at Palmetto Dunes and is hailed as the world's largest sundial. While on the harbor take advantage of specialized instruction for surf casting, fly fishing, kayaking, surfing, sport crabbing , and more.
