About Chuck and Diane Mills
Chuck and I (Diane) purchased this Colonnade Villa as a vacation home and rental property. Our first experience with Hilton Head Island was in Shipyard Plantation during our Honeymoon over 35 years ago. Having returned many many times over the years, for family vacations with our two daughters, it has become 'Our Place to Go'. When not at Hilton Head, we work and play in Cleveland, Ohio. Because we are so familiar with Hilton Head we can help make your vacation a special one with our unique knowledge.
Chuck and Diane Mills purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Chuck and Diane Mills chose Hilton Head Island
Location, Location Location. PRIVACY CONVENIENCE AND AMBIANCE. We love the subtropical feeling of the Island with its Spanish Moss covered oaks, pines and palm trees and the meandering lagoons of Shipyard. We have always enjoyed the long walks on Hilton Head's white sand beaches and warm waters with crashing waves. Hilton Head Island has everything that we love - Tennis, Beaches, Golf, Great Food at cafes and ocean front restaurants. We have looked at and rented many properties on the Island but found that Shipyard had the quieter ambiance we preferred. The Colonnade Club and specifically this unit provided just the aesthetics we were looking for -- quiet serene views of nature, very close proximity to the beach, fabulous pool and hot tub as well as an upscale, and now newly renovated Villa. It is truly a place where we can get a way from our hectic lives back home.
What makes this Villa unique
Unique gourmet styled extremely well supplied kitchen/ renovated and constantly updated first floor unit with built in fire and carbon monoxide alarm systems for safety for all our guests. Luxury linens and towels for your comfort in mind. Private Quiet and Picturesque views of lagoon and golf course Steps away from beach path providing an 8-15 minute walk to beach depending on stride and kids. Fabulous large pool and jacuzzi just around the corner The best kept secret in Shipyard! No smokers policy and No pet policy enforced for allergy prone guests as well as owner
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
First off, want to share what a pleasure it was dealing with the owners Chuck and Diane. We were originally booked during a hurricane week and evacuation of the island. Chuck and Diane were extremely helpful, keeping communication lines open with us to help us adjust our plans that worked for both parties. We will surely rent from them again. As for the location and residence, all of the pictures truly do the place justice. We enjoyed everything that was advertised. Whether you are on the island to golf, sit on the beach, just relax or all of the above, the location is perfect for all. The kitchen was well stocked with updated appliances and the provided beach gear made it much easier for us to travel with our child knowing we didn't have to bring our own. We did not do the walk to the beach, but being just off peak we had no problems getting parking at the beach club. We highly recommend this rental for your next vacation. Thanks again for everything!
Always enjoy our stay
This location never fails to give us what we need !!
The villa was in excellent condition and had everything we needed for a great stay.
We enjoyed the whole area and everyone was so nice willing to help you out with anything. A great vacation.
Great place to stay
This Villa is wonderfully decorated with a beach theme, clean, including a surprise welcome. The owners go out of their way make you feel at home. The location is near all the action on HHI including a short walk/bike ride to the beach (5-8 min) yet it is secluded enough to give you peace.
Great Family Trip
Our family of 5 had a great trip to Hilton Head. Chuck and Diane's condo is perfectly situated to all the benefits of Hilton Head: bike trails, shaded walk to the beach, restaurants and stores. We were pleased with the cleanliness of the condo as well as the updated amenities. Chuck and Diane were amazing owners. They responded quickly to our emails and were proactive with information. They called us after our arrival to make sure that everything was in order. We will definitely be booking to stay with them again.
Colonnade 183....The Place To Stay!!
Great Villa and all the amenities you will need. Chuck and Diane are great villa owners and it shows in the little things, like the bottle of wine and note they left us, and the quality supplies they furnish etc....We had a minor issue which Chuck handled quickly, he and my husband got to know each other a little bit over the phone.
Close to the beach and pool, and the golf course is nice at the Shipyard. Nicely decorated, comfortable bed, and well stocked kitchen. Thank you Chuck and Diane!!
Thank you for the wonderful review. Glad we were able to connect.
