About the property

First floor 2 bed/2 bath, tastefully decorated, quiet lagoon/golf view

LOCATION/LOCATION/LOCATION: Our easy access first floor villa is only an 8-10 minute walk to the beach (depending on your stride) or less then 3 minutes by bike but nestled in the quietest part of Shipyard Plantation! It is in one of the prettiest parts of the plantation with sand colored stucco walled buildings, arched private gated entrances and well-manicured yards mixed with natural landscaping on a quiet Cul-de sac overlooking a nature filled lagoon! Your pleasant short stroll to the beach is under a cool shaded Spanish Moss covered beach path just a few steps from your villa door. The miles of sandy Hilton Head beaches, Van Der Meer Tennis Center, and the Shipyard Golf Club are all within easy reach! Our great pool and hot tub is just around the corner from our door close enough for a quick swim far enough from the noise! PLUS what a view off our balcony !: a nature filled lagoon and golf watching from afar.

Our Top Rated Colonnade Club Villa focuses on maintaining excellent guest relationships assuring each guest a great stay! Renovated and continually updated, it is conveniently located on the 1st floor of a two story Tuscan styled building with only a few steps making it easy to carry luggage, groceries, and/or children into your vacation home. It is tastefully furnished in a modern beach décor with art work appropriate for the Hilton Head area. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service with not only easy access to us 24/7 but an on island professional property manager for 24/7 emergency issues. All this is offered at a competitive price to updated properties. BOOK NOW!

The fully equipped Kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Those who love to cook or bake will find it extremely well stocked with equipment and an absolute delight! “Our guests have frequently stated that it is better stocked then their own kitchen at home.” If you to prefer to grill, you will have easy access to the newer community grills just steps away from your front door at the Bar-B-Que area. Who doesn’t like grilling in great weather!

Your living area includes a comfortable queen size sleeper sofa and 2 cozy lounge chairs with a 46 inch flat screen TV including HD-DVR, high end cable service, and DVD player. We provide a variety of DVDs to view as well as family games, books, and magazines! A great environment for relaxing after a long day out. Additional seating is available as well as a great airy family based dining area.

Enjoy a morning coffee or evening beverage on the covered deck with bar table and chairs overlooking a wonderful lagoon and golf view of the 6th hole on the Galleon Course. Experience our wildlife first hand from your private deck including blue herons, jumping fish, alligators and turtles basking in the sun. Access is off the living area allowing easy travel from the kitchen to the deck. Access is also available off the master bedroom for those private early morning views.

The master bedroom and en-suite bath is furnished with a comfortable king bed, plenty of drawers and large walk in closet. There are extra pillows available for those who love to be pillow pampered! Large windows overlook the lagoon making the bedroom airy and bright during the day but plantation blinds and curtains provide the quiet darkness needed for a good night sleep.

The master bedroom sports a large wall mounted adjustable flat screen SMART TV. The en-suite master bath has two porcelain sinks with ample granite counter space, modern bright lights and full mirror with a separate area (can be closed off) for the toilet and bathtub/shower ( for those with young ones needing a bath).

Your accommodations give you the opportunity to see the many activities within Shipyard besides the beach. The well known Sonesta Hotel is just a stroll away for those that want to eat in a restaurant and not drive a long distance, or for those that are planning a wedding and want to utilize the facilities. The internationally acclaimed Van Der Meer Tennis Facility, named as one of Tennis magazine's top 50 Tennis Resorts, has 20 courts (13 Har-tru and 7 Hard). Eight of the courts are lighted and three are indoors. The Shipyard Golf Club features 27 spectacular holes in a natural setting of moss covered oaks, pines, magnolias and palm trees. It was named by Golf Digest as one of the "Top 75 US golf resorts". The 800 acre plantation has over 12 miles of picturesque biking/jogging trails to fit everyone's interest.

About Chuck and Diane Mills

Chuck and I (Diane) purchased this Colonnade Villa as a vacation home and rental property. Our first experience with Hilton Head Island was in Shipyard Plantation during our Honeymoon over 30 years ago. Having returned many many times over the years, for family vacations with our two daughters, it has become 'Our Place to Go'. When not at Hilton Head, we work and play in Cleveland, Ohio.

Chuck and Diane Mills purchased this villa in 2014

Why Chuck and Diane Mills chose Hilton Head Island

Location, Location Location. We love the subtropical feeling of the Island with its Spanish Moss covered oaks, pines and palm trees and the meandering lagoons of Shipyard. We have always enjoyed the long walks on Hilton Head's white sand beaches and warm waters with crashing waves. Hilton Head Island has everything that we love - Tennis, Beaches, Golf, Great Food at cafes and ocean front restaurants. We have looked at and rented many properties on the Island but found that Shipyard had the ambiance we preferred. The Colonnade Club and specifically this unit provided just the aesthetics we were looking for -- quiet serene views of nature, very close proximity to the beach, fabulous pool and jacuzzi as well as an upscale, and now newly renovated Villa. It is truly a place where we can get a way from our hectic lives back home.

What makes this villa unique

Unique gourmet styled well supplied kitchen/ renovated and updated first floor unit

Quiet and Picturesque views of lagoon and golf course

Steps away from beach path providing an 8-10 minute walk to beach.

Fabulous pool and jacuzzi just around the corner

The best kept secret in Shipyard!

Great property in a great location on HHI! Better than we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property not too long after the unfortunate weather that hit the southeast and was informed of recent low level flooding. Aside from a minimal amount of debris from the trees, the property, its surrounding areas and the rest of HHI was outstanding. It started with enter in the villa with a bottle of wine waiting for us, complements of the Mills! We had great weather the entire week and was able to take advantage of most of what Hilton Head had to offer. The location of the villa was prime for many of the great restaurants on the island, shopping (my wife), and of course the wonderful beach which is just perfect this time of year. We look forward to future vacations to HHI and if available the wonderful villa owned by the Mills which were great with communicating everything from the beginning of this process. I especially appreciated their prompt response when we had trouble with the dryer on the property ( which we tried to break, sorry!). Anyone who is fortunate to stay at and experience this property will not be dissatisfied or disappointed. We want to thank Chuck and Diane again for making our stay memorable!

Owner's Response: Hilton Head has always had a resiliency to it. Despite the hurricane Matthew of last year and nasty nasty "Irma" this year it has been able to withstand the rigors that nature displays. Shipyard Plantation in particular has some great management and followup no matter what occurs and seems to be able to hold its own balance and "not get flooded". Our complex is one of more recently built structures within Shipyard and has been protected from the worse that has ever been offered. We are lucky to have solid convenience with ambiance and hope others will appreciate our wonderful villa in the Colonnade Club. We always keep our guests first and foremost, come and see the difference a stay can be with us.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay here, and it was awesome - again! :)

The owners have thought of everything for you in this condo - it's a great place to relax and super comfortable! They have great communication, and it's always easy to reach them.

Shipyard is a great private area - definitely recommend renting bikes to get to the beach!!

Look forward to visiting Colonnade again someday!

Thanks again! :)

  • 5 of 5

This villa is extremely well cared for evidenced by its extreme cleanliness and great furnishings. The views from the balcony are spectacular and relaxing. It's only a short walk to the beach too! The owners are truly interested in making your stay perfect. Can't say enough about how helpful they are without being intrusive. Hands down the best experience ever! Will definitely come back without any hesitation.

Super clean and well maintained villa! Chuck and Diane are fantastic people to work with.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at this villa. It was extremely clean and well stocked with any amenity that you might need. Location was at the back of the development and remained quiet while we were there. We loved being able to have breakfast on the patio, and watch all of the wildlife that frequents the pond next to the property. We rented bikes for the week since it was so easy to hop on the trail right next to the property, and in 5 minutes you're at the beach. Chuck and Diane were great to work with, and are extremely attentive and accommodating to all of their guest needs. They also add plenty of personal touches to make your stay extra special. Would definitely stay here again!
