Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 5-7)

Welcome to our spacious, remodeled and designer decorated 2nd floor, 2-bedroom Villa in the award winning, prestigious and gated Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island. Palmetto Dunes was named one of the Top 25 Family Resorts in the World by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Our villa is located right on the golf course in the extreme southern corner of St. Andrews Common which is furthest from roads, and other units. It has the absolute best views and it's in the quietest, most private corner of St. Andrews Common. The commercial vacation rental companies all wanted our villa, but we decided to list on Home Away / VRBO and give you a MUCH better price.

NOTE: This is NOT the much smaller 2 bedroom unit with the small deck and the 2nd bedroom in a loft with a spiral staircase. This is the largest and most luxurious 2-bedroom villa in St. Andrews.

You'll need to visit to appreciate this exceptional, spacious and truly unique 1,400 sq. ft., 2-bedroom, one-level villa with its cathedral ceilings and stylish decor. You'll be in your own, private tropical paradise with spectacular views in every direction. A huge Magnolia tree, various Palms, Palmettos, Live Oaks with Spanish Moss, other tropical plants and a small lagoon frame beautiful views of the George Fazio Golf Course. There are no other villas, parking lots, walls or other obstructions to spoil your privacy and the tropical scenery. This is exactly why we were willing to pay a premium price for this premium St. Andrews Common villa.

If you need a place to STAY, get a hotel room. If you want a place to really LIVE on the Island, this is your villa!

Our villa is professionally decorated and furnished in the Tommy Bahama style with tropical floral fabrics and art and tropical wood appointments. You'll be impressed with the open floor plan and atrium windows that fill the living spaces with light. The afternoon sun is filtered by the large beautiful trees, just off the deck, which provide a totally tropical feel.

You'll prepare a glass of wine or a drink at the eight-foot long wet bar which separates the living space from the dining space two steps above. The 42-inch Panasonic, high definition flat screen television is perfect for viewing the extended high-def channel selection; watching a DVD on the Panasonic Blue Ray player; or reviewing your day's beach photos using the TV's built-in photo viewing features. The furnishings throughout are high quality. The sleeper sofa will accommodate a 6th person or a couple of children. Morning coffee or sunset with a cold drink are absolutely perfect while sitting in one of the bar-height, bistro chairs on the spacious, private wrap-around deck. The deck has room for everyone in the party with six chairs (four bar height) and three tables. There is also a BBQ grill on the deck for preparing a perfect steak or fresh fish.

You'll find a private retreat in the master suite with high ceilings, golf course views and separate french door access to the villa's large, wrap-around deck. Everything is fresh from the tile, granite, vanities and fixtures in the bath to the furniture and 32 inch flat screen hi-def TV. Woven woods provide privacy for the windows and deck doors. Our designer advised that we should give special attention to the bedding as a good night's sleep is very important for us and our guests to fully enjoy our time on the Island. You'll sleep on the best, most supportive and most comfortable king mattress and foundation that we could find.

The roomy second bedroom also has beautiful, high quality furnishings and shades to provide privacy for the windows that face the front, entry-side of the villa. This bedroom has a queen bed for couples: an extended-length twin bed for another golfer or family member and a 24 inch flat screen TV/DVD combo. The bedding is the same high quality bedding that we chose for the master suite. The hall bath, just outside the second bedroom, has also been completely renovated with new tile, vanity and granite.

On days when you choose to eat in, food preparation will be a joy in the well equipped kitchen all new appliances and refinished cabinets. The refrigerator has filtered water and ice in the door and the range is a state of the art INDUCTION cook top and CONVECTION oven. Both are stainless steel. All pots and pans are brand new. There is a new tile floor with the original tile counter tops and back splashes. You can wash your clothes and beach towels in the full size washer and dryer just off the kitchen.

Behind the kitchen and near the villa entrance is a study with new desk, chair and artwork. This is a perfect place to open your laptop, access the villa's private wireless network and make that reservation at your favorite Hilton Head Island restaurant. There is also a printer for your use. There is also a small covered deck off the study with two chairs and a small table where you will find a private space to read a book or have a private conversation.

St. Andrews Common is part of the exclusive Palmetto Dunes / Shelter Cove Resort, one of the world's best resorts. The Resort offers exciting amenities and you will receive a Resort Pass which will give you driving and parking access to all areas of the Resort and all that this exceptional destination has to offer.

About Stan and Jane Heasley

We are Stan and Jane Heasley. We are both now retired and thoroughly enjoying life. We absolutely love Hilton Head Island and we're sure that you will too. It's like no other place in the country.

Stan and Jane Heasley purchased this villa in 2011

Why Stan and Jane Heasley chose South Carolina

Hilton Head Island is like no other place in the US mainland. We have rented houses and vacationed along the East Coast from Maine to Florida and on the West Coast as well. We've enjoyed the variety, but many places were wind blown sand, heavily commercialized or both. Hilton Head Island is very different. The Island is a forest of mature tropical trees and plants. Commercial signs and storefronts are pushed back into the trees to preserve the island feel. It looks very natural and tropical, but it's truely amazing the variety of activities, culture, restaurants, family activities and... did I mention the pristine beaches? If your looking for action or relaxation, Hilton Head Island has it all.

What makes this villa unique

The uniqueness of our vacation rental villa begins with its size, the largest in St. Andrews Common. This is NOT the much smaller 2-bedroom unit with the small deck and 2nd bedroom in a loft up a spiral staircase. Our villa is a very large, 1400 sq. ft., 2-bedrrom, 2-bath flat with cathedral ceilings and atrium windows. Our villa is also in the best location in St. Andrews. It is in the extreme southern corner of the complex furthest from roads and other housing. It has the most private setting in St. Andrews and has the very best, panoramic views in St. Andrews. From the large, private, elevated, wrap-around deck there are no walls, parking lots or other buildings to spoil the beautiful, tropical golf course views. We paid a premium price when we bought this villa as it is a premium property, in a premium location... the absolute best available in St. Andrews Common.

Our villa is also totally remodeled and designer decorated. Everything is fresh from the floors to the ceilings including furniture, wall art, bedding, appliances, light fixtures, lamps, bath tile, bath vanities, granite, etc.

The villa is located in the Prestigious Palmetto Dunes / Shelter Cove Oceanfront Resort with all of the resort activities, golf, tennis, kayaking, charter fishing, dolphin watching, private beach access points, etc. along three miles of the best beaches on the east coast. The Resort has everything but, if you decide to leave the Resort, you can bike about anywhere on the Island from this perfect mid-Island location. Two cruiser bikes are provided for your use and additional bikes may be rented at a 20% discount when staying at our villa. With the special code we will provide, you will receive DISCOUNTS ON GOLF, TENNIS AND RENTALS OF BIKES, KAYAKS, CANOES, ETC.

The villa is in the middle of the action for those looking for fun and activities, yet very private and secluded for those looking for some tropical rest and relaxation. It is truly the best of all worlds.

Wow! Truly Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

The others who submitted reviews were right. This villa is exceptional! Right on the golf course; totally private and relaxing on that back balcony; and beautiful views of a small lagoon and the golf course. The villa is also beautiful inside... very large, open floor plan, light and airy... The location may even be the best part. The beach is a few minutes walking or on a bike and Shelter Cove, our favorite place for dinner and entertainment, is a few minutes walk in the other direction. This is the best we have found on Hilton Head Island.

Owner's Response: Diana, we appreciated your email stating: "Your place is beautiful! We are enjoying the peaceful view from the deck." We receive many compliments regarding the villa and that spectacular view and privacy on the back wrap-around deck. We pride ourselves in responding quickly to any problem and we're pleased that we were able to respond the same day as reported to check the toilet and tighten the seat bolt. We look forward to your next stay Diana.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this villa for spring break and had a great time. The villa is exceptionally spacious for five people and in a great location. We rented bikes and rode 5 minutes to the beach. The villa itself is in a quiet location on the golf course. We loved having the grill on the wrap around deck and enjoyed having coffee there in the morning. The villa's location is within 5-10 minutes of shopping, grocery store, etc. Stan was always quick to answer any questions I had regarding my arrival, codes, etc. We can't wait to return!!!!!! I would high recommend this villa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our villa Joe! As you point out, the location couldn't be better with the beach a 5 minute bike ride one way and everything Shelter Cove offers a few minutes by bike or a five minute walk the other way. Close to all the action, but absolute peaceful tranquility and privacy when you're at the villa. The best of all worlds! Jane and I look forward to your next stay.

One of our favourite places

  • 5 of 5

This condo at St. Andrew's Common was so comfortable The views onto the golf course are beautiful and the condo has everything you need. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and the lovely linens. We communicated back and forth with Stan a few times and he is friendly, prompt and extremely helpful. We'll be back for sure.

Owner's Response: Tara, it's always great to have you at our villa. "Comfortable" is the perfect word to describe it. I see that you have already booked your next stay so "Thank You"! We know you have other choices so we try hard to ensure that our villa is the best choice you can make on the Island. Jane and I look forward to your next stay.

Great New Year's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property in St Andrews Common, as you enter Palmetto Dunes, provides the perfect setting for two couples to enjoy all that Hilton Head Island has to offer. The condo is spacious and the wrap around porch offers a great setting for cocktails and preparation for many of the local attractions and dining opportunities. A must is an evening at The Jazz Corner for a great meal and show.....make reservations before you arrive....always "Sold Out". Great golf is minutes away as are bike & walking trails, and restaurants/pubs galore. This condo gave us the perfect setting to end one year and start the next one!!
