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 Hilton Head Island

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.

We were fortunate enough to be able to spend 21/2 months in this wonderful villa. It is very updated and has all the comforts of home. The kitchen is supplied with anything and everything you could possibly imagine needing. The location is mid island and convenient to everything. The owners respond immediately whenever communication is necessary and even called after we arrived to make sure everything was up to par. The area was safe and relaxing. Could not find one negative thing to day about this rental - it was the best!!!

Will more than likely book here again next year, unless we have too many people. Dave was so helpful and easy to work with. A very pleasant experience. I highly recommend this property.

Everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary here. Everything was perfect, clean, plenty of towels, etc.. Wife said it's the best stocked kitchen she's seen in a vacation rental. Dave was extremely responsive and accommodating. He even checked in to see if we needed anything further and ensure everything was as expected. Definitely will check back with Dave next time we vaca in Hilton Head. Thx Dave.
