About Susan Philpott

We've been on VRB0 with this Andrews Common villa since 2003. We enjoy helping families and golfers plan their HHI vacation. Hilton Head Island was named the #1 Island in the U.S. and Canada by Travel and Leisure magazine, and #2 in the World!

We love the beach, golf,tennis, and everything Palmetto Dunes has to offer. We especially love playing the Robert Trent Jones oceanfront golf course. We think HHI is the perfect place for a family vacation.

Susan Philpott purchased this condo in 2003

Why Susan Philpott chose Hilton Head Island

While viewing properties for sale in 2003, we wanted to buy in a private resort area. Palmetto Dunes was just right for us because it's size is not too big, and not too small. With 2 beach accesses, 3 golf courses and an excellent tennis court facility, Palmetto Dunes was the place for us. We picked St. Andrews Common because the units are clustered in groups of 4 per building, vs. all in one building, which makes it very private. The layout is spacious, and having the wrap around patio & garden makes our place feel more like a second home.

What makes this condo unique

We like being close to the pool because it makes it easier to tote your floats, towels, and picnic lunch to and from the pool. The wrap around private outdoor patio is a great place to cook out, relax, read the paper, listen to nature, and just enjoy time being on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Susan,

This is the first chance that I've had to write since our trip to Hilton Head. Just wanted you to know that the trip was very rejuvenating and restful for our family. Your condo was perfect for our needs and provided a very pleasant stay. You are absolutely correct in your description of your beds!!! They are so comfortable.

Thanks again for allowing us to rent your condo. Hope to come back soon!

Wonderful vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful condo in St. Andrews Common the week of June8-June 15. We absolutely loved it. It was close to everything-beaches, shopping, dining. We were able to bike to the beach in a matter of minutes. Also, when we arrived everything was clean and very nice. We had 5 people stay for the week, and we all fit comfortably. There was plenty of room for our family and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot. We were also right by the pool, which was very convenient for the days where we wanted to go to the pool, come back and get lunch, and go right back to the pool. I would have to say our favorite part was the porch. There are several entrances and the porch is a nice place to sit after a long day at the beach. We definitely had a wonderful time and Susan was a huge help along the way. Whenever we had a question, she was quick to respond and very helpful. I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to have a quiet beach getaway!

Comfortable vacation stay in beautiful quiet setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this spacious sunny villa! The weather was sunny most of the week so we enjoyed nice bike rides to the ocean most days. One day we even enjoyed lunch by the lovely pool (just steps away) - while too cool for us to swim we enjoyed sitting on the pool deck and looking out at the lagoon and watching the turtles. For us what set this villa apart from all the rest was the bikes included with the stay. They were in great shape and easy to ride and we thoroughly enjoyed taking many rides on the bike trails within Palmetto Dunes. We also enjoyed the proximity to the many dining and shopping options within 5 minute car ride. Proximity to Shelter Cove was also nice. The condo itself was lovely and spacious and all on one level. Lots of closet space, comfortable bed and comfortable seating choices for watching TV at night. Susan was a great host and very accommodating!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO. The villa is clean and convenient to many restaurants and day trips. We loved our walks on the beach each morning and lunch at the beach restaurant. We were on our way home from a busy trip to Disney and this was the quiet, relaxing stop we needed to recharge before continuing our trip home to Pennsylvania. Susan was great to work with and answered all our questions promptly. We look forward to another vacation in HHI. Thank you for sharing your villa with us.

Great trip!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our 4 night trip to Hilton Head and loved being in Palmetto Dunes in the spacious condo. We both thought the condo had a great floor plan and a seriously comfortable bed. I would love to know what kind it is. Great pillows too. We thought we would use the grill but we were so tired at night that we either ate out at one of the many restaurants on the island and other nights we did take out from the grocery store. We liked the location in the plantation because it was not that far from the beach and also close to the gate. The wooded setting was so wonderful on hot days and we enjoyed the pool which was more refreshing than the ocean temperature. A great trip in a very comfortable villa.

Quiet. Relaxation. Fun.

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Hilton Head this July and had a great trip. The condo is in a fantastic location-just minutes to the beach, just across the parking lot from the pool, and nestled among trees and wildlife. We found that the condo had all we needed and we really felt at home. The beds were comfortable; showers had excellent water pressure and hot water; the large windows and french doors filled the rooms with beautiful, natural sunlight; and the family room area had the most comfortable "deep cushion" couch. I have already started to look for one similar close to home for our house! We loved the way the condo was laid out. Was nice for all to be involved whether in the kitchen, at the dining table or in the family room area. We also liked that the bedrooms were slightly separated to give everyone a little privacy should they need it. Susan was responsive with any questions we had leading up to the trip and also made sure all went well after we left. We would love to stay at this condo again in the future.
