137 Evian is a peaceful, comfortable, pet-friendly vacation villa located in the Shipyard Plantation on Hilton Head Island. Our villa is 100% owner managed, so unlike all the Management Company properties now on VRBO, what you see is what you get! Great rates, and no management company fees or "bait and switch" to another property.
For dog owners who hate having to put the family pet in a kennel during the family vacation, renting our pet-friendly villa by the beach is certainly a win-win for you and your dog.
This is a 2-bedroom, 1st floor end-unit within the Evian complex, one of the prettiest complexes on the island. It's a very private, quiet location, at the end of the cul-de-sac. From the back patio, there is a lovely wooded and partial golf course view. That combined with the holly bush planted just beyond the patio creates a peaceful haven for bird-watchers. (We have in the past been visited by owls.) Just behind the shrubbery lies the fairway of the first hole of the Shipyard Golf Club's Brigantine course. Yet there's plenty of privacy.
The Evian complex has six tennis courts available on a first-come-first-serve basis, a community pool, and walking/biking trails (great for morning runs and dog walks.) We have tennis rackets available!
The villa sleeps five, with a king bed in the master, two twins in the second bedroom, and two rollaway twins available as well. Both bathrooms have been upgraded and the kitchen is fully equipped.
The villa is our home away from home, stockpiled with many of the usual comforts of home - books, games, puzzles, blender, high-speed internet, and cable TV. There is a new 50" HDTV in the living room, with On Demand programming access (the free stuff only!!!).
The condo is approximately a 20 minute walk or 8 minute bike ride to the beach, accessed at the Shipyard Beach Club. We ride bikes to the beach (and ON the beach here in HHI), especially during the summer months when parking is hard to come by. For guests who would like to park at the beach however, we provide a parking pass that enables you to do so.
Dogs are allowed on the beach year round, BUT during the summer months that is restricted to certain times of the day. Signs are posted at the beach that provide the specifics. Our dogs love their morning and evening walks on the beach.
With all the bike trails in Shipyard and along the main arteries of the island, cycling is a great way to get around. Within an easy ride you can pick up supplies at the supermarket, play a game of miniature golf, and get an ice cream or a meal. (Please note that we no longer are able to offer access to our bicycles, as we've done in the past. Weekly rentals are inexpensive and delivery and pickup is included.)
The golf facilities on the island are, of course, excellent, and there are plenty of them. That being said, there are many, many other ways of wonderfully passing the time: sunset catamaran cruises, kayak into the creeks for dolphin spotting, fishing in the lagoons, etc.
The island also has a great selection of restaurants, from Malaysian curries to French fine dining. And seafood and barbecue of course!
