About the property

2 Bedroom flat/ 2nd floor villa, Amazing prices & Villa, Find your home away

2018 is filling up fast.

We thank all our renters for another wonderful year...As our repeat renters go, we always love to see you year in and year out...You make our home and renting it go so amazingly easy.

You don't have to give up a Beautiful 5 Star Villa due to price. Ask our guests and read our reviews. In fact even look at our calendar. We offer a unbeatable villa at a unbeatable price! Why...It's easy. I am an owner who cares, has an unbelievable staff, and as a result I can offer competitive prices and guarantee the best rates. Another key factor in what keeps this villa beautiful is because of our many repeat guests year in and year out.

THIS VILLA Received a nice update- April 2014.. The main one's is new carpets, art work, beds, washer & dryer, And later this year we will be a redo including new kitchen fridge, kitchen and hope to make the small room into its own little haven...

This 4/5 star unit located in St. Andrews Common's will give you everything you could ever ask for and more in a vacation villa. Whether sitting on the wrap around deck enjoying the view of the pool, or enjoying the short 5-7 minute walk to the beach, you will experience complete immersion into a 'relaxed state of mind'. From your front door you are in walking distance to dining, shopping, the Fazio Golf Course and Shelter Cove Marina/Shops. For those who don't mind a 5 to10 min walk (at most) you can walk the beach to Coligny Plaza...for those who want rides - Beach Buggy offers free shuttle rides to beaches within Palmetto Dunes. Your car pass will give you full access to Palmetto Dunes which is the most active Resort on Island.

I am the owner of this beautiful Villa for 17 yrs now...This place is owned and rented by myself with the help of my service and cleaning company. We keep things very simple to ensure a stress free and easy way to stay and enjoy yourself in this beautiful Villa. I am proud that 75% of renters return year after year to this Villa due to their experience, ease in renting, rates, and happiness with the unit. I book up very fast...By April 31st 2018 this Villa will be booked for the Vacation season...So dont wait... You will not find a more competitive rate for this quality of a Villa, if you do... I will match that price and give you $50.00 off your stay...

This is a 2 Bedroom Villa with a made up guest room as well off the kitchen which is nice for a single person in the group to have there own bedroom with twin bed and a screened in porch as well. Now it is a space off the kitchen but is private, just no door to room for it was made for a breakfast room idea. Master Suite has a king bed, french doors out to main deck and of course it own bathroom The second bedroom has a queen bed as well as a twin. It also has its own bathroom. This bathroom is just outside the bedroom.

So you can sleep 6 people in beds and 2 on pull out in living room.


And we are not shy to say please read our reviews. You will see they are as good as I speak of our home. OH ya...But for one unhappy person who is one of those people I don't think you could please if you offered standing on ones head.... I please 99.9% of our renters...LOL

About Ken Aretz

We are very caring and keep and very nice villa. Most repeat visitors help.

Born and raised NY'er so we know how important it is to not only care about our home but also the care for those we open our home to. so ever any concern, questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Ken Aretz purchased this villa in 2005

Why Ken Aretz chose Hilton Head Island

Because we offer you a home where the owner cares. We don't rent to people who don't and weed out the ones that just to many issues with.. So this then allows me to give you the best. A place where the owner, care taker, and renter are happy people who want to rent and enjoy with no BS nor drama. We ask everyone to post reviews on our property. And yes ALL... Some would say why...Cause you cant get a good idea of a home till you read bad reviews...Then you see there really is no issues...We do enforce our rules not for my sake but for the sake of the vacationers coming in after. So if you don't call about a issue and check out. Well the guest after you get screwed and I will use your deposit to fix. If called during we are in and out and you don't even see us or will find that our home keeper cissy is amazing....

What makes this villa unique

A clean Villa in which we stand behind and one that is kept as anyones home. The serene state of mind that takes over as I sit and enjoy the views from my deck. Taking a nice walk to enjoy the sunset on the beach and then crossing the street to enjoy waterfront drinks at Shelter Cove Marina.

What a lovely place to spend a long weekend or even a few months! Visited with family and enjoyed the spacious accommodations. Especially enjoyed sitting outside on the porch in the early morning or around sunset. Thankful for having had the opportunity to stay in such a clean, well-furnished, and cozy villa. This place truly feels like a home away from home. Hoping to visit again soon! Plenty of space to spend time inside, and lots of places to take a walk or a bike ride if you're looking to get outdoors. We made use of the Dunes Buggy to get us back and forth to the beach, how convenient!

Thanksgiving 2017

Awesome Thanksgiving on beautiful HHI. The villa was very spacious and offered everything that we needed to create a special, memorable Thanksgiving with family and friends. Thanks to the owners for great accommodations as well as an easy check-in and check-out. We hope to be back during the summer.

Will not comment due to my being a Christian. The rating is sufficient

  • 1 of 5

No comment. Hurricane Irma caused cancellations of two flights for reserved dates and could not get to Hilton Head. Insurance option was denied once Irma was classified as a Hurricane.

Wonderful relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an awesome time. It was great to be close to the pool. The beach chairs and beach toys were greatly appreciated by our kids. Out kids are officially beach bums and couldn't get enough of it. Took advantage of the Dune Buggy service to get to beach. Would definitely recommend it!

What a great location - just across from Shelter Cove . Walking distance to so much!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for us, a very nice quiet location. The wrap around deck was also a big plus to enjoy the outdoors with privacy. The pool is very close with lots of deck space and chairs. We will certainly stay here again!
