About the property

Villa on Golf Course, Near Beach & Tennis, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)













This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom townhouse villa is located in the Heart of Palmetto Dunes, a Conde Nast top 50 Resort, with three nationally acclaimed golf courses, one of which was voted the top in South Carolina. The professionally redecorated villa overlooks the acclaimed Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, where you can watch or take golf lessons daily, hit range balls, putt around freely or enjoy a free golf exhibition every Monday. Golf Pro Doug Weaver is available for golf lessons if you need a few tips. Junior clinics are affordable. The 10th hole on the course is one of the only 2 oceanfront holes on the island, with a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean. You'll enjoy putting or hitting balls the pros leave for you to hit for free as your dinner cooks on the grill a golf ball throw away.

The villa is a five minute walk from the world recognized Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, where you can enjoy tennis or pickle ball and a free tennis exhibition every Monday. The Tennis Center has been ranked 5th in the world by Tennis Resorts Online and 1st in the Carolinas by Tennis Magazine. Tennis Magazine has included it in the 50 top tennis resorts. Tennis buffs are invited participate in local tournaments, including weekly round robins, and the pros offer a daily clinic for everyone. Play free after 6 p.m. Beautiful public courts also are within a 5 minute drive.

You easily can walk or bike ride to the beach on paved paths. Also, the Dunes Buggy free shuttle will transport you and your beachgear to and from the Dunes House at the beach, where you can relax with cocktails, food, and even a guitarist in the summer. Chairs, sail boats, surfboards, paddle boards and beach kayaks are some of the recreational beach toys for rent on the beach.

The villa was redecorated in the fall of 2016 and contains everything one would need for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation but also includes free WiFi for those needing to stay in touch. The villa is decorated with art from SC artists and has modern amenities such as a 55' LED SMART tv in the family room, flat screen tv's in each bedroom, roku's, granite kitchen countertops, a BBQ grill and ceiling fans in case you choose to open windows to catch the ocean breeze while you sleep. The villa comfortably sleeps 8.

The master bedroom located downstairs has a king sized memory foam mattress set, huge closets, a 32' flat screen TV and a private bath. The master bedroom also has a sliding glass door accessing the spacious deck, which like the den, overlooks the Trent Jones Golf Course.

The guest bedrooms are both upstairs and share a bathroom. The first guest bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and flat screen TV. The second guest bedroom has a king bed and flat screen tv. The bedrooms and living areas are spacious, so you won't feel on top of one another. The carpet upstairs is berber and professionally cleaned. Downstairs is all tile floors.

All bedrooms and the living area have a beautiful view of a large old oak tree and the golf course. The villa has a spacious deck and beautiful back yard where children can roam freely without worry, night or day while adults can stay inside or on the deck if they prefer. The yard is perfect for hide and seek, manhunt, wiffleball, skateboarding on the golf cart parking area, or hitting range balls. There is a sand trap and putting green just outside the back door you can use for free. There are nearby fishing spots within walking distance at the pond and lagoon.

The gourmet kitchen will entice you to cook on vacation. The dining area has a large table to comfortably seat 6 hungry guests, but on warm evenings, you may prefer eating outdoors on the spacious and scenic deck, conveniently situated off the living area with a large dining table comfortably seating 6 and a BBQ grill, all in the shade of a large oak tree.

The villa has access to 5 free pools. The closest pool is just 30 steps off the deck. The driving range is even closer. The golf course club house is a 3 minute walk down a paved path and the tennis courts are just 2 minutes further. It takes only 7 minutes to walk to the beach, taking paved paths the whole way. You may decide to ride bikes to the beach or call the Dunes Buggy for a free ride. You and your children will love the easy access to the General Store, next to the clubhouse, where you may choose to eat breakfast or lunch on the viranda. The General Store boasts the best fried chicken on the island. Kids love the candy selection. Morning folks love the coffee selection. Near there, you also can rent bikes, add to your fishing gear or rent kayaks.

The free 'Dunes Buggy' shuttle service runs March through September and easily transports you directly from your doorstep to the beach, grocery store, or Shelter Cove, where you will find local festivals, shopping, dining and other entertainment. Enjoy the Harbor Fest in Shelter Cove during the summer season and every Tuesday night enjoy the fireworks display and music by local musicians. There is a comedy club in Shelter Cove worthy of a visit, and yes it is family friendly, and also there is a playhouse at the entrance of Shelter Cover. Many great restaurants are at the edge of Palmetto Dunes for an easy walk, bike ride, Uber or Dunes Buggy ride home.

About Jane Downey

We are beachgoers who enjoy the golf course, 11 mile lagoon, tennis, surfing, SUP, bike paths and close dining and shopping Hilton Head has to offer. We hope you will visit our villa more than once and treat it as your home away from home.

Jane Downey purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jane Downey chose Hilton Head Island

What a great beach, perfect for those not wanting to hunt kids in large waves. Who can surpass the golf, tennis, boating and restaurants Hilton Head offers? If you crave a historical setting, both Charleston and Savannah are about an hour away, an easy day trip. Airports are convenient. People are friendly. No trip to Hilton Head would be complete without a visit to the outlet malls.

What makes this villa unique

Beach condos tend to be 'hit or miss' with some having dated furnishings and only a balcony. We hired a professional designer to update our villa in 2016. You will love the setting of our back deck with the golf course as our back yard. We have an active family and Palmetto Dunes has everything for us to enjoy from a relaxing day on the beach to surfing, kayaking, biking, golfing, tennis and walking on trails. Winter snowbirds tend to love the location and amenities of our villa.

Your cooperation and patience in the event of a needed repair is part of the way you aren't having to pay as much as you would at a hotel. We apologize in advance if you are inconvenienced.

Convenient, spacious but needs attention to details

  • 3 of 5

Beds are comfortable and kitchen is well stocked and clean. However, we think the unit may have been empty for a while with musty odor. Bathrooms need some attention but were serviceable. The location is convenient.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was a perfect location for our girls weekend trip to HHI! In palmetto dunes and not to far back. The condo was decorated very nicely and beds were comfortable. Only negative was it was not cleaned at the time we were given access to it. But the owner was so quick to respond and resolve the issue. She was very easy to get in touch with and got the condo cleaned and ready for us in a hour. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo!! Highly recommend this unit for friends or family vacations!

Inclusive & inviting

  • 5 of 5

We literally used every amenity that was included in the rental, from the bikes on the back porch, the beach chairs on the beach, to the boardgames in the main closet. (Maple syrup in the cabinet, even!) They thought of everything to make it more of an inclusive feel. It was as nice a villa as we've seen and we've vacationed on Hilton Head off and on since 1970. The A+ review came from our 5-year-old, who loved the pool noodle and nearby pool, and the 85-year-old who loved the nice short walk to the beach. The residence has some years on it but was modern in every aspect, from the hot showers to the Wi-Fi bill to the TVs. Everything worked! We would stay here again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected. It was very accommodating had all the necessary dishes, pots n pans, small appliances and washer and dryer which was very helpful since we had 3 small children. The beach was a little far to walk with kids and gear, but they had a dune buggy service that you could call and they were there within minutes that made it really easy to go back and forth. Hilton head is a nice place but I did find it a little pricey. There are a lot of other beaches in SC and NC that are less expensive to visit.
