This exceptionally bright and airy villa with 2 bed and 2 bathrooms is located on the award winning George Fazio Golf Course. There are dozens of excellent golf courses to match any budget both on and a short drive off the island. The Robert Trent Jones course offers a free clinic Mondays at 4 p.m. You can bring a club and ask the pro for advice on hitting a particular shot.
The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center features 25 clay courts including eight lighted courts for night play with plenty of organized opportunities to play and receive instruction. The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center is rated among the top five tennis facilities in the world. You are invited to watch weekly featured matches by the best players on the island.
Our Villa comfortably sleeps six. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and full bathroom. The second bedroom has a well-made queen-size bed and a private bathroom. There are two high quality, twin-size, Castro convertible sleepers to accommodate two other guests. Televisions are in the living room and master bedroom. The television in the living room is a 55" Samsung SUHD curved display with the best picture quality available today and is subscribed to the fullest featured “Platinum” programming from Hargray. The master bathroom was just remodeled and now has a glass walk-in shower. The Breakfast area has three large skylights and overlooks a pond. The living room furniture is leather and made by Broyhill. Fiber Optic based internet service at 50 Mbps if provided through the best supplier of that service on the island. The kitchen and laundry area are full featured with new or recently purchased appliances. The raised deck overlooks the golf course and the views make it an ideal place for morning coffee and evening beverages. It has bar-height outdoor furniture for six and looks out onto the 7th and 3rd fairways and greens of the Fazio golf course. Deer can often be seen on the fairways at dawn and dusk. You can easily hear the roar of the ocean from the deck. The front door lock is keyless for exceptional convenience when you have your hands full with grocery bags. Just touch the keypad with your unique combination and the lock's gears will open the deadbolt. Also, everyone in your party can know your unique combination so if one group is on the golf course and another at the beach, each can access the villa without a metal key. This is our home in the winter so everything will work as expected and the property will be immaculate.
To make the villa more like home, it has a number of large, live house plants. There are many song birds that live in the bushes just off the deck. Among them are bluebirds, bluejays, cardinals, redwing blackbirds, nuthatches, chickadees, mourning doves and woodpeckers. The mornings are particularly enjoyable for the birdsong and colorful plumage. A feeder and large container of songbird seed is provided but we ask that the seed only be placed in the feeder and nowhere else. (Birds leave scat where they find seeds; if birdseed is left on the railing for example, the deck would soon be spotted with bird droppings. We need every guest’s support to sustain this amenity.)
Our Villa is non-smoking and, while we like pets, we have a policy that does not allow them. Local and state taxes of 11% are included in the rental fee as are departure cleaning costs and the free use of the Dunes Buggy shuttle service. A security deposit of $150 is refunded seven days after your departure assuming no damage from abuse occurred. (Accidentally breaking kitchen glassware and the like is normal wear and tear; kicking-in a bathroom door is abuse.) The villa includes a swimming pool and three private Har-Tru tennis courts the use of which is free for our guests. Both are about 200 feet from the villa. Palmetto Dunes charges $15 for a week-long automobile pass.
The path to the beach is covered by a canopy of oaks and hanging moss and follows the golf course. The roar of the ocean from our deck is particularly loud after a rain storm. Hilton Head beach is over ten miles long with stunning views and a mix of sand properties that allow everything from sand castle building to bicycle riding.
Further, Palmetto Dunes Plantation is located in the middle of Hilton Head Island where guests can enjoy shopping, fine dining, entertainment, site-seeing tours, swimming, boating and deep sea fishing. Palmetto dunes has a free, seasonal “Dunes Buggy” shuttle service that offers round trips to any location in Palmetto Dunes or Shelter Cove Harbour. In the summer, Hilton Head Island has a semi-tropical climate and Palmetto Dunes has a unique 11 mile canal system. Its wildlife is interesting to explore by kayak or other watercraft. Boat rentals are available. The bike trails in and around Palmetto Dunes offer safe and enjoyable family fun. Hilton Head Island has 80 miles of trails for bicycle riding. The Bon Bicycle company offers quality bikes with locks, baskets and economical prices that include delivery and pick-up. Reservations can be made by visiting bonbicycles.com. (A significant portion of Bon Bicycle's revenue goes to a Haiti relief fund.)
