Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath, across the street from the beach, shopping, and restaurants.

Thoroughly gutted and renovated in 2014, "L'Auvent" is an adults-only 1 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 story top-floor 1100 sq. ft. tree-top and lagoon view penthouse with W/D, Wi-Fi, 2 TV's, pool, tennis courts, and underground parking. It's across the street from the beach and across the street from Coligny Plaza shopping and restaurants. Upstairs, there are sliding Shoji doors that allow the king-sized bedroom to be completely closed off from the other upstairs living areas in case someone wants to "sleep in". There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs and one down. The entrance to world-renowned Sea Pines Plantation, where Harbor Town is located, is about a mile down the road.

About Van

We purchased this villa in 1990 as "youngsters" so that we could eventually have a second home or primary residence on Hilton Head. Since this particular development has always been roughly half full-time residents and half second home / vacation rental, we chose to rent our unit long-term for the first 23+ years until the last resident, who had lived there 13 years, moved away. We changed our approach at that point and went with a complete renovation -- tearing down all non-structural walls, taking down all sheet-rock, etc. -- to fully modernize and move to short or mid-term rental to couples or pairs of golfers (or kayakers, or...) who want a "residential - like" villa. We still live many hours away but thoroughly enjoy the time we get to spend here. We hope you will, too.

Why Van chose Island Areas

Hilton Head Island was and is one of the most desirable locations to vacation or live in the world. The climate, which we describe as "southeastern beach", is particularly agreeable in the fall through spring and "best for hot-weather lovers" in the summer. This particular villa is located across the street from the beach and from the shopping and restaurants of Coligny Plaza, yet it's a quiet top-floor penthouse with a beautiful tree-top and lagoon view. It's a great fit for us. We hope it's also great for you.

What makes this villa unique

Hilton Head Island's 10+ miles of wide white-sand beach is among the best for walking or biking that we've experienced in our travels around the world. Sea kayaking on the open ocean or on the protected sound with the dolphins is a wonderful experience. Nearby Daufuskie Island and Savannah offer unique southern experiences that we thoroughly love.

Could live there

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and setup well. Less than a 5 min walk to the beach, shopping and various dining. Going out to eat is not necessary because the condo is stocked well for cooking. Don't hesitate, book it. Will return.

A truly exceptional place near all the action

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were absolutely floored with the design and detail of this home. They clearly spent a great deal of time and thought into their style and updates. This is definitely a bargain! Worth coming back and staying just for the accommodations.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel a lot and this is the most beautiful rental we have ever stayed at. Everything in the villa is top of the line. The large walk in shower with the pebbled flooring is amazing. It is in a perfect location for the beach and for shopping/dining. It is very peaceful and serene. We hope to be back next year. Thanks Van and Angie!

Sincerely, Brenda and Jeff

Perfect escape from everyday pressures

  • 5 of 5

We needed to get away for a longer weekend and found this villa to be very comfortable. The layout of the space was very well done, clean and well maintained. Even though we spent a great amount of time on a bike, hiking or on the water, this home away from home was just what we needed.
