Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom First Floor Flat With Private Garden Views In The Heart Of Shipyard

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 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 and bikes 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, CD player, 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, rent videos, play a game of miniature golf, and get an ice cream or a meal.

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!

Summer Rentals are Saturday - Saturday (checkout Saturday by 10 a.m.). During the other seasons, check-in/check-out days are flexible, with a 3 night minimum stay.

About Dave and Barbara Armstrong

Our family first vacationed on Hilton Head Island in 1999, and we've been coming back ever since. From the first time we visited, we knew we'd retire and live here some day. That day hasn't come yet, but our Evian villa puts us one step closer to it. Our three grown children enjoy coming back to HHI as much as we do, and have already been using the villa more than us! And don't tell our New Jersey friends, but we don't miss the Jersey Shore!!!

Dave and Barbara Armstrong purchased this villa in 2014

Why Dave and Barbara Armstrong chose South Carolina

When we first visited HHI, we began looking at real estate, more as a fun thing to do than anything else. One day we snuck into Shipyard from the beach on our bikes and we first saw the peacefulness and solitude of Shipyard and Evian in particular. Our Evian villa is at the end of one of the Evian cul-de-sacs, and is the perfect location for us and our dogs. A first floor unit, it's quiet and comfortable, and there is plenty of outdoor space for dog walking. We look forward to living here some day, but until then I hope you will enjoy vacationing at our villa with your family (including your dogs).

Great Villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to Hilton Head Island, but this was our first time in a rental (we had always done hotels previously) and the experience was fantastic. The location in the Shipyard is perfect - you can easily get to the beach, the bermuda triangle, shelter cove, coligny beach and the pool with short bike rides. There's a bike rack right in front of the villa which makes loading and unloading easy (if you have never been to hilton head before I strongly recommend renting bikes; it's the only way to experience the island. You can even get tandems and trailers for smaller kids. We almost never drive anywhere while on HHI).

The pool is very nice and gets great afternoon sun and includes a cool gazebo that overlooks a lagoon.

The unit itself is nicely tucked away in the corner and had nice shade all around. The master has a king and is very roomy while the second bedroom was perfect for our 2 kids. The unit was clean, well appointed and quiet.

We had a couple of minor issues when we checked in and the owner resolved everything promptly; we were very impressed by the customer service.

Overall I highly recommend this villa and we are strongly considering renting it again for our net visit.

Great Relaxing Location in HH

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to HH for the Holiday break with my family (and our dog) and we rented this first floor condo from Dave and Barbara. We were truly impressed by the size of the unit and the nice decoration. All amenities were correctly listed and the unit's location at the end of a cul-de-sac made for a really nice and quite stay. The walk to the beach was not too long and quite enjoyable in the Shipyard plantation. The close proximity of the tennis courts (free access) and golf course was also a great perk. Overall we would recommend this unit to any family who wants to enjoy a relaxing vacation...away from the craziness of the busy crowded areas on the island.

Immaculate Property - Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and our dog spent a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend here - I didn't want to leave. The property is incredibly spacious and well decorated and the kitchen is the best stocked I have ever seen in a VRBO property. We cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner, never once needing a pot or pan that wasn't there. The master bedroom and bathroom are comfortable and the area around the property was very dog friendly and quiet.

Evian itself was so very quiet and peaceful, great for walking around. We didn't cycle personally but saw lots of people out on bikes.

We loved the beach, especially for the dog friendliness - our dog is good on voice command so was able to be off the leash. We went twice a day to the beach and never found it crowded. We took day trips to Savannah and Charleston, as well as going into Harbor Town to climb the lighthouse. All three are very dog friendly - we found a tour bus in Savannah that would let our dog on, which helped us see as much as possible in the one day.

Dave and Barbara were very lovely and easy to communicate with - the guestbook prior to arrival was helpful, especially the directions. I really hope to be back around the same time next year but for much longer than 3 days - there's too much to enjoy!

Very functional but a bit dated

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Hilton Head and I fell in love with the island. The villa was in a great location but a bit dated and some things needed some face lift, including furniture (drawers kept falling out), electronic door lock, cookware (warped pans) and decor. It was also a bit dark with little natural light. But despite these minor observations, the villa met all our needs and was a great vacation place for us and our dog. I really loved the Shipyard plantation and definitely will return.

Owner's Response: Dear Tanya, Based on your feedback, we have updated our pots and pans and our electronic door lock has been fixed. I hope our backup plan of providing keys for your use was satisfactory. There isn't much we can do about 'not much natural light', as we are located in a beautiful, but heavily wooded location in Shipyard. As our primary intent is to provide a clean, comfortable, dog and kid friendly vacation home at a reasonable rate, we don't worry too much about the decor being dated. That's a subjective thing - our last review stated how nicely decorated the villa was. We wish we could have earned a 5 star review from you, like most of our other reviews, but we do take your feedback seriously. Thank you for providing it. And thanks again for choosing our villa for your vacation. Sincerely, Dave and Barbara

Family and dog friendly rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this rental. The rental was nicely decorated and very clean. We had ample room for our family of 5. The condo area was family and dog friendly. We loved taking our dog to the beach for walks in the evenings. We will definitely be back!
