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 Hilton Head Island

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).

Wonderful stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, well equipped and owner was extremely prompt and accommodating.

Weather in March was unusually cool so beach time was less than normal.

As a result, more time than normal was spent in this comfortable Villa. We had our Border Collie pet with us and the location, with access to the golf course, was perfect.

Thanks Dave and Barbara ... much appreciated!!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first month long trip and this place worked out perfectly! It’s homey, had everything we could possibly need and very clean. It is secluded enough to be private and quiet but also a great location close to everything. Great area for biking and walking trails. Loved walking to the beach! The owners were awesome! We would definitely rent this place again! Can’t wait to go back!

Amazing Villa and Perfect Location - 5 Stars

Our family of 4 along with our small dog spend a long weekend in September in this beautiful villa. The villa is very clean and has many wonderful amenities. We have a hypoallergenic dog due to allergies. The villa was so clean that our allergies were not bothered at all. A wonderful rental with nice decorations and is very clean. The beds are very comfortable and the villa is overall spacious. The owner included access to beach chairs, etc as well as two bikes. The location of this unit is perfect as well. It is a short walk/bike ride to the beautiful beaches. It also comes with a parking pass to allow you to park in the lot right near the beach if you wish. The beach access is amazing and very even on a holiday weekend was not crowded if you moved a bit down on the beach pass the access. Dave and Barbara were wonderful to work with and accommodated all of our requests with ease. They went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was wonderful. We have rented numerous times and this by far was one of our best experiences. The high level of care that the owners took to make sure our stay was amazing was very much appreciated. In addition, they send you very helpful information to positively enhance your stay. We enjoyed our time at this rental and will be back soon ! Thankful to have found such a great villa with the perfect location and exceptional owners to work with.

Comfy and Clean

  • 3 of 5

As is always the case we have a enjoyable experience staying at this Evian Villa.

It was comfortable and clean. However, it was looking very tired as most of these units are reaching a stage that they never some updating.

Regardless the owners were very responsive to our enquiries and needs and we were not wanting for anything!

We will consider this unit again when we visit HHI.
