About Nall Gearheard

We visited Hilton Head several years ago and just fell in love with the area and atmosphere. There are no high rises on the island, so it is less crowded, relaxed, very family friendly. Perfect for a bike ride or walk, play on the beach, kayak in the lagoons, or hang out and just be a family. Very casual and relaxing - perfect place to forget the hustle and bustle of the city.

Nall Gearheard purchased this villa in 2014

Why Nall Gearheard chose Hilton Head Island

Saint Andrews Commons the hidden gem of Palmetto Dunes, very spacious, immaculately landscaped, and very roomy. A wonderful villa in an incredible resort offering so many activities for every member of the family.

St. Andrews is a wonderful, quiet development, that is eternally green. St Andrews features a gorgeous pool & sundeck that overlook the Fazio golf course and a gentle fountain. The villa is centrally located so all the resort amenities close at hand. Just a lovely, relaxing atmosphere overall.

What makes this villa unique

Villa's location and ambience couldn't be better, thanks to my talented and tasteful wife. Very private, spacious accommodations and grounds, the villa is centrally located to all the resort's activities - you won't want to leave and literally don't have to - everything you want or need is inside the resort. The patio is a great place to relax after a long day at the beach. Live oaks shade the pool in the afternoons, keeping the water cool in the summer, perfect for afternoon dips. Just a great vacation spot, restful, quiet, perfect place for being with loved ones.

This was just as it's pictured beautiful. Owners were so nice to work with. Anything you needed was tended to right away. You had all the comforts of home at your fingertips. The villa was well supplied with anything you would need. Great stay. I would return here anytime and would recommend this spot to anyone.

Great location, Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Palmetto Dunes is a great location for a stay in Hilton Head, tons of restaurants, shopping and the beach. This condo is located in St Andrews Common (near the front) the pool is super close and really nice. There was the Dunes Buggy to supply transportation to and from the beach, which made things really easy. The beds were comfortable with lot's of pillows, there was plenty of room for our family with everything you could need in the kitchen. The TVs were nice with lot's of channels available on the cable system and the couches were comfortable plus board games were available and a Toy Story 3 puzzle, which our daughter loved. Bonus there were beach chairs to use. We enjoyed our stay and plan to be back.

Owner's Response: Craig, So pleased you enjoyed your stay. You unlocked the secrets of our villa - it is perfectly located, quiet, spacious, the grounds are expansive and beautifully maintained, and the pool is just steps away. Everything is so convenient. Glad your daughter liked the puzzle, my daughter's favorite movie. Really a pleasure hosting your family. If ever you return, we would love to have you stay with us again. Save travels.

We will definitely be back

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to HHI and we will definitely be back for more. The condo was well maintained and looked just like the photos. The new bike rental service they offer was very convenient and the owners were very quick to respond to all my many questions. We loved it so much that we're getting ready to book next years visit.

Five Stars from this Family of Five

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay this week. The condo itself was very clean, beautifully decorated and the layout was great for our family of five. The kitchen (and the rest of the place) was well stocked with everything we could need. Proximity to the pool was nice and the short drive to the beach worked out great for us. Palmetto Dunes itself was a beautiful place to be, with its own conveniences for those who stay there. I highly recommend to anyone that is struggling with the decision on where to stay on the Island!

Villa in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second stay at St. Andrews Commons and the villa was even lovelier than we had remembered.

The surroundings are lush and green and the condo itself is decorated in muted, peaceful tones. The kitchen is newly renovated and fully stocked with utensils. The furnishings are comfortable and inviting.

Beach access at the Disney Beach House is convenient and pleasant.

The owners are helpful and responsive.

This is a beautiful, peaceful place to unwind!
