About the property

A light and airy 2bed, 2bath oasis steps to the pool and a short walk 2the beach

Our beautiful St Andrews villa is the perfect place for your beach getaway. Your new favorite vaca spot is a newly renovated (and new on the rental market), tranquil, light and airy spacious villa (1350 sq ft). It boosts all the creature comforts of home and then some! Because the home is a corner unit and has beautiful wall to wall windows, natural light streams in. All new furniture in the living room is super comfortable and is perfectly positioned to maximize your movie viewing pleasure on our new flat screen television.

Both Time Warner Cable with premium stations and a Roku streaming box in the living room offers access to hundreds of channels (including Netflix), more than enough to satisfy any movie craving you might have. And it all sounds great with the new sound bar we’ve installed. Tired of watching television? You have access to dozens of video games on Roku. Not a video game enthusiast? We have old school favorites such as Clue and Trivial Pursuit available to make unforgettable HHI memories. Or simply surf the internet using our high speed Time Warner wireless internet service.

A comfortable king bed in the master bedroom with plush new linens and a luxurious private bath serve as your private retreat. To truly get away, we’ve added a 42” flat screen television and another Roku streaming box (you can get Time Warner cable, Netflix and hundreds of other channels here, too!). The guest bedroom has a queen bed, with all new linens, and invites its occupants to sleep in, relax, and rest up for the next day’s activities. The nook behind the kitchen has an inviting trundle bed that can accommodate an additional person or serve as a comfortable place to read, chat or listen to music.

Our villa is equipped with a full capacity washer and dryer in the laundry closet by the kitchen. Fresh linens, bath/hand and beach towels are included for all our guests. New kitchen appliances and all the cookware, including a new Weber charcoal grill, you will need to whip up that special vacation meal is provided. Would you prefer to dine out? No problem! Our villa is super close to Starbucks, Cold Stone Creamery, a new Whole Foods Market (a gourmet grocery store with an excellent prepared food section and wine cellar), Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Fish Grill (OMG, we LOVE the fish tacos here!), Michael Anthony's (WOW, simply yummy Italian), and other outstanding restaurants. We’ve placed recommendations of all our favorite eateries in one beautiful binder for you.

Want to continue your yoga practice? Interested in catching a musical or play? Do you love to shop (the Tanger Outlets are here!)? Want to jet-ski, watch dolphins or fish? Love to bird watch and simply enjoy nature? We’ve put this information in the binder as well, along with instructions for the workings of the villa and contact information of our property manager. All you need is there, waiting for you ... when you need it!

Palmetto Dunes is a special place that has it all. That is why we love it here! Three world class golf courses and an award winning tennis center provides golf and tennis athletes plenty to enjoy. An 11-mile winding lagoon is the setting for a serene canoe or kayak trip starring the property’s wildlife. Take a bike ride, jog or stroll the paths of Palmetto Dunes, named one of Travel + Leisure magazine’s Top 25 of the World’s Best Family Resorts for the past two consecutive years. Or head straight to the three miles of white, powdery sands (and that is why you are here, right?) by foot, bike or on the free “Dunes Buggy” shuttle service that runs March 29 through September 19, from 8 AM till 9 PM for guests at our villa. This fast, hassle-free service picks you up at our villa’s door and whisks you to the Disney & Dunes House beachfront center (Palmetto Dunes’ private beach access, restaurant and restrooms), Shelter Cove Harbor (a Tuesday night favorite hang-out for the weekly fireworks), Shelter Cove Shopping Mall & Plaza, as well as other locations.

Want to venture out a bit off the island? Beautiful, historic Savannah, Georgia is a 45 minute drive south and Charleston, South Carolina is 90 minutes (north) away.

We hope that you choose to stay with us. Drop us a line if you have questions about our villa. Even if you choose to stay someplace else email us if you have questions about Palmetto Dunes or HHI.

What are you waiting for?


Sorry but no pets and no smoking permitted in the villa. The primary renter must be at least 30 years of age. No student groups.

About Dawn and Carl

We are U.S. diplomats who love to explore. We bought our HHI villa in September 2014 because we love the island, the pace of life there and its natural beauty. For those who choose to book with us, we thank you in advance. We are sure you will love our place and the island as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a comfy, cute and conveniently located villa you have! Loved the swing and decor, especially. Thank for equipping it so well and allowing us to enjoy your space which we throughly did. We mostly hung out at Coligny Beach and shops, took the kids to Shelter Cove community park (hubby liked that it was near Starbucks) and swam in the pool nearby. I could definitely see this as a repeat vacation. Oh, and the kids thought the turtles in the lagoon were so cool. Didn't get to see an alligator yet so will put that on the to do list for next time!

My husband and I booked this condo to celebrate our anniversary. Originally, I had wanted a place right on the ocean, but once there, I found that I didn't miss that at all. Places on the ocean tend to be incredibly noisy, while this place was more private and had a relaxing feel to it. It was extremely hot that weekend so we appreciated the trees, the view of the golf course, and the pool, which is mostly shaded. I really enjoyed the swing out back. In addition, the condo was extremely clean and nicely furnished. We both felt at home there.

It is easy to get to the beach because there is a free Dunes shuttle so no worries. The tennis courts are also in close proximity. In addition, I highly recommend the Italian restaurant, Trattoria Divina. We go there every time we are in HH.

Very nice condo in a good central location

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our week in this clean and comfortable ground floor-level condo. Kitchen is very small but lots of living space in the dining-living room area, plus a quiet little alcove "reading nook" behind the kitchen. It is literally steps from the back patio to a beautiful lagoon bordering the golf course, and a few more steps around the corner to the swimming pool, which also features a quiet sunbathing deck built over the lagoon. Pool is on the small size for the size of the condo complex. Bathrooms in the condo are small, bedrooms are average size, simply furnished, king bed in master bedroom was very comfortable. The grounds around this complex in St. Andrews Commons are wooded, shady, and very nicely landscaped, and we experienced some very peaceful wildlife watching and relaxing on the patio swing. It took us a few days to orient ourselves to Palmetto Dunes, as well as other areas of HHI, as the maps we could find were not very detailed. The public beach is a 10 - 15 minute walk or an easy bike ride from the condo on paved bike trails or bike lanes on the road. There are also two restaurants and a convenient little "General Store" en route to the beach area. We could also bike or walk to the Shelter Cove area across the main highway from Palmetto Dunes, but we needed to use our car to get around to other areas on the island. The condo owner, Dawn, provides a binder of brochures, restaurant menus, and tips for activities, which was very helpful to first time visitors to HHI. We did a sunset kayaking tour, took the ferry over to Daufuskie Island, rented bikes for the week, and spent a couple beautiful evenings in Harbor Town - and of course, visited the beach and pool every day! And when you want to "relax at home" in the evening, the condo's living room becomes a great home theater with its large-screen TV equipped with a Roku streaming device. I would be happy to rent this property again, and I certainly recommend it to others, although I think it might be more convenient for a small family, rather than two adult couples. My husband and I shared the condo with another couple; the second bedroom contains twin beds and its bathroom is just outside the bedroom within view of the dining room/living room, so not as private as the master bedroom/bath. But we all thought this condo was very comfortable, well maintained, and convenient to just about everything. Thanks to Dawn, too, for graciously accommodating our traveling time schedule.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this rental as part of our getaway for our tenth anniversary. This place was absolutely wonderful! It was extremely clean and in a great location. The home is beautiful, very close to the pool (walk out the back door and your there) and the free shuttle to Dunes beach is awesome! The locals were all extremely nice and helpful. One of the shuttle drivers recommended a restaurant called the Sea Shack, it was great southern cooked seafood! Go expecting a wait but it's well worth it! We used the charcoal grill many times while there, the unit provides everything needed for any type of cooking one may want. The only negative was that we had noisy neighbors upstairs that were up what seemed like all day and all night. We could hear them walking and what sounded like scooting furniture or something around all the time. The owner was extremely amazing as she called to ensure everything was going good during our stay. The location is great as your right on top of the beach and close to dining out and shopping as well. The owner provided many dining ideas along with suggestions for anything you could think of that you may want to do while there. We stayed the first part of our getaway in savannah GA and it was a less than ideal experience as far as the rental was concerned so to come here and have such an amazing experience and beautiful home we were relieved! We can't say enough good things about this unit and the owners who obviously take pride in their home! Thank you for allowing us to share your home and we hope to return again soon!!
