Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
All avid golfers, our family also loves the beach. Hilton Head Island is the perfect spot for us! Every season of the year offers something special, and we visit as often as we can.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Owner chose Hilton Head Island
Inverness Village is in the award-winning Palmetto Dunes resort with 3 miles of beautiful beach, an 11-mile lagoon system, 3 golf courses and a tennis center. Paved bicycle and pedestrian paths wind throughout the resort and the island. Shelter Cove Harbor is just across the street with it's large marina, shops and restaurants. Hilton Head Island is easily accessible from I-95, and we usually make the 13 hour drive from New Jersey in one day. We often fly - the island has its own airport, and the larger Savannah airport is less than an hour's drive from Palmetto Dunes.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is directly on the lagoon and golf course. The views are gorgeous, and we especially love the birds - herons, egrets, ibis, osprey and the occasional pelican. Inverness Village has its own pool and 3 clay tennis courts. Our end unit is on one level, with no one above or below us. It's very spacious, and we've tried to include everything you'll need, even bikes and beach chairs. Our villa truly feels like a home away from home. We use an on-site service company, so any maintenance issues are handled immediately. Some of our favorite activities are riding bikes on the beach, kayaking on the lagoon and walking to the General Store using the 'shortcut'.

Too many problems
After reading the reviews online we were surprised by the condition of this villa when we arrived. It appeared that no one had recently been in it and although I'm sure it was cleaned after the last guests left it should have been freshened up before our arrival. There were several dead cockroaches, other insects and even a dead frog that we vacuumed up. The deck was covered in debris and spiderwebs so we cleaned that up and put the cushions on the chairs. The bedroom dresser was visibly dusty so we did some dusting too. After all that was done the place was ok but we did see dead or dying cockroaches every morning when we got up. We travel to Hilton Head twice a year and have stayed in other Inverness properties and this has never happened before. The air conditioning broke on a very hot 90 degree day but was fixed the next day; one of the smoke detectors went off repeatedly one day for no apparent reason and the dining room light turned itself off. All in all maybe they were just off their game after the summer season but the place looks like it needs some maintenance, a good cleaning and painting. After all that, we got a letter on Wednesday asking us to wash the towels before our departure Saturday morning. That rubbed us the wrong way considering the lack of attention we felt we received. Also, the website says the Palmetto Dunes gate pass is $10 but we were charged $25. We did not contact the owners directly. When you check in you're instructed to contact some other people who live in Inverness. They were very helpful in getting the air conditioning fixed but did not respond when we left a message regarding the tennis court gate lock; it was broken most of the week. Luckily another resident eventually came by and helped us out.
Karla - I'm very sorry about your experience at our villa. Our local caretakers are reliable and conscientious, and they do check our villa and freshen it up right before our guests arrive. Unfortunately, a post-surgery medical emergency in Charleston prevented them from doing that the Saturday of your arrival. Since none of us has ever seen a frog in the villa, we're assuming he hitched a ride inside on the deck furniture during preparation for the storm that blew through in early September. Palmetto bugs are part of the Hilton Head environment. We rarely have them in the villa, but it happens. Fortunately they are harmless. We have a maintenance agreement with a local HVAC company, and I'm glad that they fixed the air conditioning promptly. We love our Hilton Head home and want to know if anything doesn't meet our guests' expectations. I do wish you had contacted us right away. We didn't know there were any issues until we saw your review.
Very nice unit. Right next to a tee on thegolf course. Got to watch various golfers tee off
Owners easy to work with. Quick response. Deck over looking tee. Far enough away can't interact with a golf ball . Pool short walk away. Beach a two minute drive to Disney beach or Dunes House beach.
Loved this unit and the location
My husband and I really enjoyed your unit. It's very clean and updated
and just overall comfortable. We had friends over for dinner one night
and they loved it too. The view from the back deck is great - watching the
golfers go by. It's a very pretty spot. We used the bikes to get around
and that was such a treat. We had a lot of fun. Thank you!
Great villa. Well appointed. Very clean. We have rented many properties and this was one of the best. Owner great to work with. Looking forward to returning.
Everything we hoped for
Incredible weather, great condo, stupendous view from the back porch and the clay tennis courts were expertly maintained.
Great villa in a very good location with beautiful views
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at this villa in April/May 2018. It was our second vacation in this villa and every bit as good as the first. The villa is as per the photos and very spacious. There is everything that you would need including kitchen and other supplies. We particularly enjoyed the views from the many windows and watching the golfers from the patio deck. Everything was nice and clean when we arrived and there were no problems with something not working, etc. Especially nice features are that the villa is all on one floor (no stairs), that it is only a short walk to the pool at Inverness Village and that there are a pair of bicycles for use by guests in the storage locker. We would be very pleased to stay again in the future.
