Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This was our 3rd year in a row staying in this unit and we love it. Does need some updating, but all in all it is a great place to stay and I am sure we will stay there again.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in several Captains Cove villas, but this was our first stay in 493. The villas are all slightly different, and there are some things we really loved about this one:

1. The "sunroom" area was part of the living space and air conditioned so it made the unit feel larger. The master bedroom also opened to that area so it just felt more spacious. (Other units are "walled off" between the master BR and sunroom.)

2. The upstairs are was closed off so the early risers didn't have to worry about waking those who were sleeping upstairs. (The upstairs area is a loft in other units.)

3. The upstairs had two full bedrooms with ample closet space and beautiful views, as well as a separate sitting area. Our kids used the sitting area to stay up late and not keep us awake. We couldn't hear a peep.

4. It's an end unit so the deck is more spacious and has better views of the lagoon.

5. The refrigerator was large and had built-in crushed ice (for my margaritas!) and filtered water. It was -by far- the nicest fridge we've had in any of the villas.

6. The air conditioning kept the upstairs as cool as the downstairs.

7. The remote controlled ceiling fan in the living room was a really nice feature.

The only "negatives" about this unit versus some of the others we've experienced:

1. The master bath was smaller and a little outdated. There is only one sink. Minor inconvenience, though.

2. The televisions were a bit outdated, and some of the bedrooms didn't have televisions at all. This wasn't an issue for us at all since we're not big tv watchers (especially while we're on vacation), but it might be a factor for other renters.

Overall, the villa was clean, comfortable, and the perfect home away from home. We will likely be back! Thanks for having us!

Close to beach, but in poor condition with lots of bugs

  • 1 of 5


This unit is in a good location as it is close to the beach/pool and you can bike to putt-putt, ice cream, and several restaurants. The management company running this unit is also very responsive.


Roaches. Everywhere. Not just “palmetto bugs” (the big ones), but roaches of all sizes. Inside and outside. Upstairs and downstairs. In the kitchen, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms. Each morning, the first person up literally went on a roach hunt to pick up the ones that had died that night (generally around a dozen) so everyone didn’t have to see them. A bug person was sent out during our stay and claims he comes on a regular basis, but it didn’t seem to be working.

The unit was just generally dirty. We had an infant and cringed with her crawling around on the floors. All three showers did not drain (a fix was attempted the week of our stay, only one was resolved). Each shower ended with standing in 1-2 inches of water.

I sincerely recommend looking at other units. We talked to other families at the pool who say Palmetto Dunes is great and we will likely stay here again, just definitely not in this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide us your feedback from your recent visit. We appreciate your comments and are truly sorry we missed the mark to make your stay flawless. We apologize that housekeeping was not up to par, we would have loved the opportunity to send a crew over to make the condo spotless for you. Nonetheless, we understand the impact this had on your vacation. We have remedied the situation by putting a new cleaning crew on the condo to ensure this does not happen again. Additionally, the unit was sprayed by pest control in addition to their normal monthly service. We apologize again that you weren’t able to enjoy the type stay we strive to provide each guest. Your feedback is important to us and we hope that we will have the opportunity to provide a much better experience on your next visit to Hilton Head Island.

Impressed with size for the price

  • 2 of 5

It was a girls trip that had been a long time coming. We had a fantastic time at Captains Cove, but did have to make some concessions. Everything was, for the most part, clean (there was schmutz on the table, sandy grit on one side of the master bed, and the upstairs carpet was crunchy) and there were even little shampoos in the bathroom! When we called about a toilet not working properly, they were eager to send someone out, but we were headed to dinner and checking out the next day. I'll definitely use VRBO, don't know about that particular unit.
