About Don Kelly

We have been vacationing in Hilton Head for many years and visited around the globe, but our favorite vacation spot is still HH Island. In the summer of 2013 we bought this charming Villa in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. It has everything we wanted for our #1 vacation destination. We spent several weeks renovating it to our taste and comfort level. It is our hope that our guests will love the villa as well as this area as much as we do. Enjoy!

Great unit, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condo. The unit is nicely updated and comfortable for our family of 5, and we could have easily accommodated more. Access to the pool right out the back door was convenient, and the walk to the beach was easy. The owner was helpful and accommodating. We would return again!

We had a great time in this Villa!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 just fit in this villa. It is conveniently located near the ocean. The furniture pictured in the living room is not what is in the villa. We could have used another chair in the living room. The master bed was very comfortable! The bathrooms and kitchen are beautiful. We had a great time at Hilton Head!!

Wonderful Place in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Kelly's villa in Water Oaks/Palmetto Dunes Resort this August. Don is easy to work with and his place has everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The villa has plenty of room and we are a total of 7 (2 adults and our 5 children). The place was very clean and well maintained. It is a charming villa!

One interesting thing about the location of the villa which is nestled inside the very large complex of Palmetto Dunes is that the beach access path closest to this villa puts you into a section which is less populated than the area just a little south of there. The beach is beautiful and it was not overcrowded. Coming from the north (metro Detroit area), we couldn't believe how warm the ocean felt! We saw 3 dolphins....2 surfaced 15 ft behind our kids one day while they were playing in the waves!

Besides the beach and the pool (which is right outside your backdoor), there are many things to do. We took advantage of the tennis courts (at the time of our stay, we were granted up to 2 hours of court time/day....this is nice because court time is $30/hr). Many visitors either rented bikes or brought their own to ride around the large property. If you drive up to the other side of the island, there are fishing charters, boat rides, etc. (near the Salty Dog Cafe -which was a lot of fun). Of course there is shopping all around the island including a very conveniently located Krogers just across from Palmetto Dunes.

One day in the middle of the week, we drove down to Savannah, GA for the day (about an hours drive south from HHI). We had a great time although it was a heat advisory day there. In fact our kids got on the local 5pm news! A local reporter was doing a segment on how people beat the heat in Savannah....we just happened to be in Forsythe Park which has fountains/splash pads for the kids at that time. We had lunch at The Shrimp Factory which is a great place to eat and is located by the river along the long and winding cobblestone street.

We will definitely try to stay here the next time we visit Hilton Head! Thanks again Don!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed there for a week and had a great stay! Don was very friendly and took care of answering any questions and or issues that we had. There is litteraly a pool in the backyard and the beach is a short walk! Lots of nearby shopping and dining as well. We will definitely be back to HHI and stay again! Everything was very nice and clean! Thanks for sharing your space with us!

Palmetto Dunes has it all including perfect beaches and beautiful bike trails. There are three Championship Golf Courses on site including a Robert Trent Jones course. One hour per day of free tennis included. Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort offers outstanding Tennis Packages for players at all skill levels at one of the world's finest family resort destinations. One of our favorite events on the island is eating. We like to stroll down the beach to the Dunes House Beach Club. Ahhh... sitting outside eating fish tacos and watching the view - Life is Good. There are many other great restaurants in the resort and nearby at Shelter Cove. If you want to ride around the resort, call the free Dune Buggy (in season) to transport you to shops, dining, kayak rental and other activities.
