This spacious villa is located just a short walk away from the beautiful, sandy beaches of Hilton Head Island. The exclusive Shipyard Plantation is a gated community that provides it's own private beach access for owners and guest convenience. The plantation is surrounded by some of the best golf courses in the world, miles of paved biking paths with palm and oak trees covered in Spanish moss, professional tennis courts and gorgeous sunny beaches. (Please note: we have another Shipyard villa in Evian (property # 457755) that has amazing reviews. When we vacation with additional family/friends this works out perfectly).
Professionally decorated with new furniture and fresh paint, this villa is one you’ll just have to see to believe!

One of the most popular attractions in the Shipyard Plantation is the nationally renowned Van Der Meer Tennis Center where guests can take tennis lessons daily from tennis professionals and pros. Check out their official tennis website for more details. You will truly be impressed with the quality of their tennis courts and the wide variety of tennis lessons/clinics available for all ability levels.
While tennis is certainly popular here on the island, most people would agree that golfing is one of the most popular leisure activities. Hilton Head Island has an abundance of lavish golf courses and beautiful scenery. In fact, the Heritage Classic is an annual stop on the PGA Tour. Golf enthusiasts (including golf pros) flock to HHI hoping to be a part of one of golf's finest sporting competitions.
For those of you golf lovers that prefer to actively participate in a round of golf more than observe one don't you fear! HHI offers some of the most pristine public and private golf courses in the country that attract many visitors, including celebrities.
In addition to wonderful golf and tennis don't forget to check out the many different types of outdoor water sports available in Hilton Head. There is a wide variety of things to choose from including kayaking, jet skiing, sailing and deep sea fishing. There truly is something for everyone!
Shopping divas don't despair! There is plenty of shopping to enjoy on the island also. One of the most popular shopping destinations on the island is the Coligny Shopping Plaza located close to the beach with many original stores and designer labels to choose from. If you are more of a bargain shopper check out the Tanger Outlet Mall just a short drive to the 'main' land (about 20 minutes away from Shipyard). Amazing deals on brand name items and a great variety of stores to choose from makes this a unique shopping experience.
If food is your passion, there are many wonderful places to choose from! Our favorite dining places include, but are not limited to, The Smoke House (excellent barbecue), The Boat House (with beautiful outdoor dinning along the water) and Aunt Chilada's with authentic Mexican food.
HHI is a nature lovers paradise full of interesting greenery and a multitude of wildlife (turtles, alligators, squirrels, deer, herons, crabs and many others). This may explain why one of the most popular past times on the island is bike riding. Guests truly come from all over the world to enjoy the miles of bike paths that wind along lagoons, lush green golf courses and other popular outdoor locations such as Harbor Town. The biking experience and views are by far one of the most unique qualities that HHI has to offer and we highly recommend taking the time to truly explore them so you can see first hand all of the beauty that Hilton Head has to offer. Who knows, you may even get lucky and see some alligators basking in the sun along the bank of a lagoon. :) Special Note: If you call 'Riding Tigers Bike Rentals' and mention our property they will give you a discount.
Between the beach. golf, water sports, shopping, tennis and biking I think it is safe to say there is truly something for everyone's vacation enjoyment; which is why Hilton Head Island is so special and well worth the visit. Once you visit Hilton Head Island you'll understand why so many people choose to vacation here year after year.
No hidden fees: Taxes and cleaning fee are already included in the rate quoted; unlike others that nickle and dime their guests for each thing in addition to the quoted price. Attentive owners make continuous updates including new king beds, brand-new carpet and fresh paint in December 2016. As a result, our villa is booked full throughout the year since we purchased it.
