About Dave West

Hello from Dave & Marcie,

We live in the Atlanta area and had searched the Florida Gulf Coast for a vacation home but couldn't find the right combination.

We have always loved the charm of Charleston, SC so when we found Hilton Head, we knew it was the best of all worlds the minute we saw it. Palmetto Dunes offers that sought after Southern charm and the feel of a small town even though every convenience is within a few minutes reach. With the beach, tennis, golf, biking and fishing so close, we knew we had found our dream.

Dave West purchased this villa in 2014

Why Dave West chose South Carolina

We fell in love with this one for many reasons including plenty of room for our large family. The community is full of huge oaks with draping Spanish moss giving you that low country feel and plenty of shade. It's also closely located to the many activities Palmetto Dunes has to offer. We are avid golf and tennis players but had to be close to the beach. It was so nice to find all this wrapped in one!

What makes this villa unique

Our villa offers an open, inviting entryway. From here you can head upstairs, access the master bedroom or the spacious living room and kitchen. The golf course view and island location make this villa perfect for our family vacations.

one of the best condos to rent

  • 5 of 5

One of the best condos for location and furnishings, with a very responsive owner. Close to the beach, but off the main road. A quiet setting backing onto a golf course. A kitchen equipped with every dish and utensil you could ever want. Comfortable beds. Well kept and clean. Highly recommend.

Wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

After coming to Hilton Head Island for 9 years we found that 26 Hickory Cove was our best rental experience (and we have rented on other continents).

Dave and Marcie are very attentive and available hosts. The villa is in great condition-clean, quiet, roomy and well taken care of. The kitchen is really well equipped to cook and entertain. The hosts have thoughtfully left games and books.

The villa is in a super location in the middle of the island, close to everything.

We highly recommend this villa to visitors for short-term or long term stays.

The owner was very easy to work with during the booking process and answered all our questions quickly. The condo was beautifully decorated and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed for our stay. Short walk to the beach and close to the pool. We have already booked this condo again for our summer vacation!

Incredible place in a great location. A must see!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute Father-Son trip. We inquired with Dave about the property and received a quick and friendly response. The unit was just as it appeared on the site. It was very clean with all the amenities you could possibly think of. Rooms are spacious. Fully equipped kitchen. Beds were really comfortable. The views of the 18th on Robert Trent Jones really got us in the mood for our golf get away. A short walk to the beach was a great way to start the morning and a stroll down to the general store for a coffee ( while my teenage son slept in). Like I said, the location was just perfect. A short drive to many other courses. Shelter Cove is right across the street with many restaurants and shops. The owner was very helpful in giving us guidance with all the island had to offer. Never had to reach out to him otherwise because this place had everything we needed and more..... I highly recommend you check this place out. You will not be disappointed . We hope to return next year!!

An excellent place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay on Hilton Head Island. It is very clean with comfortable furniture and an extremely well-equipped kitchen. A very comfortable mattress in the downstairs bedroom. Very quiet, more so than other properties in the same complex. And - big bonus - a real Weber charcoal grill (you have to provide the charcoal, but lighter fluid and lighters are included). If you get tired of restaurants and want to cook your own meals, this is the place.

There is a nice view of the Robert Trent Jones course's 18th tee from the deck. You can easily walk to the Trent clubhouse, and to the beach in about 7 minutes.

The owners are very friendly and answer emails quickly. Pricing is very good.

Highly recommended.

Had a great time at Palmetto dunes. Rental was lovely and we had everything we needed. Enjoyed watching all the golfers on the 18th Tee. 5 minute walk to the beach. Also liked all the info that was written in the book for us.
