About Karen Hausler

We bought our first place on the island in 1989. It has always been our family's favorite vacation place. Some of our best family memories are from here

Why Karen Hausler chose Shelter Cove

This house is truly comfortable. We enjoy the cozy feel, and have decorated so that it is homey rather than hotel like. We make sure that all the amenities are what we would want on vacation, and hope that you enjoy it as well.

What makes this House unique

We love the privacy, yet the great location of the house. It takes about an hour for it to really feel like home, and then we don't want to leave!!

                                                        So pleased that we could be part of your vacation. Love to help create great memories!!

                                                        Great for large family. Big bedrooms lots of beds.

                                                        We had a great time. Between pool and beach kids were happy. Great spot for lots of kids- not fancy or formal so no worries.

                                                        Spacious property - needs maintenance and throughly cleaned

                                                        Kimberly K.

                                                        This property was an ideal size for our group with 5 bedrooms and each family having their own bathroom. We loved the private pool and very short walk to the beach. Upon arrival the home had trash from the previous renters left under beds and around the living area. We did our best to clean it up but did end up requesting that the home be re-cleaned. The staff arrived almost immediately. Overall, the entire home needs a very through deep cleaning because the carpets and everything we touched were dirty. As per a previous review, the back sliding glass door is next to impossible for all but a strong adult to move. Not possible for a child. Although the property advertises a hot tub, it is not in working order.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thank you for your candid review. Based on your comments we have changed cleaning services. We are truly disappointed that the staff we were using did not meet your expectations, and cannot take the risk that they will again fail.

                                                        Please try us again- we promise that it will be cleaner. They stated that they offered a mid stay clean, but realize that does not make up for first impressions. Hopefully this new service will be much better.

                                                        Trust that your stay otherwise was a good one, and that your family enjoyed being together.

                                                        Absolutely Beautiful !!

                                                        Michael M.Charleston, WV

                                                        We have been vacationing every summer on Hilton Head Island for almost 20 years. This is usually the only time our entire family gets together. As our family has grown ( now 11 of us), it has become sometimes difficult to find a nice place to stay. This home was beautiful! It's got 5 great bedrooms, each with it's own bath, beautiful living room, great kitchen, and a fantastic pool! Our grandkids were in the pool several times each day and we could walk to the beach in mere minutes. I consider myself a picky person-I could find no fault here. We had a problem with a cracked and leaking disposal and the brand new dishwasher had not been installed properly and was also leaking. A repairman was on the premises within 45 minutes of our reporting the problem. Absolutely no inconvenience. The owner is great to work with. We will definitely be back next year!!

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        So glad you had a wonderful vacation. You were ideal guests, and I do apologize for the faulty installation of the dishwasher- some things are totally beyond my control!! Family time is very special, and I am pleased that we could offer a space that helped create memories for your grandchildren. Please let me know what works for you in the future.


                                                        Property appear to be clean and well-maintained. Size of the pool was a big plus.

                                                        This house was good for a group of 15 people. The walk to the beach was able to be done in minutes. The rooms were spacious and there was enough table space for everyone. The two families that shared this house for both overall pleased and would consider renting it again in the future .

                                                        This was a wonderful house for 5 couples, with 5 bedrooms, all with their own bath, and plenty of room for meals and gathering. Short walk to beach and a pool in the back with a nice deck.
