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 35 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. Because we are so familiar with Hilton Head we can help make your vacation a special one with our unique knowledge.

Chuck and Diane Mills purchased this villa in 2014

Why Chuck and Diane Mills chose Hilton Head Island

Location, Location Location. PRIVACY CONVENIENCE AND AMBIANCE. 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 quieter 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 hot tub 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 extremely well supplied kitchen/ renovated and constantly updated first floor unit

Private Quiet and Picturesque views of lagoon and golf course

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

Fabulous pool and jacuzzi just around the corner

The best kept secret in Shipyard!

The Best Vacation Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

This villa is wonderful. From the moment I walked in the door I loved this place. The kitchen is wonderful and so well stocked. It makes cooking a pleasure. I love the open concept that the villa has. The living room furniture was comfortable. The master bedroom was a great size and the king size bed was very comfortable. The view of the lagoon and golf course from the patio was beautiful. It was fun watching the wildlife in the lagoon. The whole villa is beautifully decorated. The villa is located very close to the walkway to the beach. It takes about 8 minutes from the time you leave the villa until you put your feet in the sand. It is also pleasant walking through Shipyard . The owners are wonderful to work with. They even left us a bottle of wine and a lovely note. I will definitely return to this villa.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Hilton Head for the last twenty years. Chuck and Diane have made their villa the perfect place to relax and enjoy the island. Nothing is missing and no detail is overlooked. The villa is as comfortable as you could wish and well stocked with everything you might need in the kitchen. They were very concerned that everything was in order and that we were pleased. Couldn't ask for more!

A well-equipped haven close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Chuck and Diane’s condo has everything one needs for a short stay or a longer one! My aunt and I were there for three weeks and appreciated the well-equipped kitchen with plenty of Tupperware, cutting boards and cookie sheets for roasting SC pecans, and even a colander. It is rare to find a rental property that has such a well-stocked kitchen. The condo also has a washing machine and dryer in the unit. There is generous supply of toilet paper and other necessities in the condo when one arrives so the first stop can be the beach, not the supermarket. The mattresses were very comfortable. In addition to all these practical considerations, the condo is nicely decorated with low country flair!

I stayed in January and enjoyed everything HHI had to offer at this quiet time: walking on an uncrowded beach, lots of local oysters, and the camellias were in bloom! A few favorite winter activities included basket-making at the Coastal Discovery Museum, kayaking, and taking the ferry (Vagabond Cruises) to Savannah.

I highly recommend this condominium for a stay of any length!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Glad you enjoyed the comfortable beds we definitely have received quite a few kudos for them. Great sleep is always important! We are always looking to add even more to our kitchen equipment (you can never have enough of those little extras). We intend to make it the best stocked gourmet kitchen on the island! For someone who appears to enjoy cooking glad it worked well for you and your Aunt. Hope to see you again.
