Condo on the Water at Shelter Cove Harbour!

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Shelter Cove

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Shelter Cove Villa. Completely Renovated. Well-Appointed, Perfectly Situated Unit. This bright and airy second-floor Harbourside I villa offers AMAZING HARBOR VIEWS from its balcony. Shelter Cove is a Mediterranean-style village located on the harbor across the street from Palmetto Dunes. More than a dozen restaurants and boutiques line the beautifully landscaped marina, where you can walk to breakfast, lunch or dinner; enjoy live music; shop; rent a boat or a kayak or book a fishing or a sightseeing excursion. Or just kick back, enjoy your wine or coffee, throw fish or steaks on the grill, all-the-while enjoying the incredible sunset views amongst the bright flowers and host of private yachts.

Best of both worlds: Shelter Cove offers everything from fine dining to family-orientated water-front cafes and Mexican fare. Guests of this villa can walk downstairs for a cup of coffee glass of wine at Bistro 17, enjoy a white-tablecloth meal inside at La Fontana, take advantage of great Happy Hour offerings at King Fisher or catch spectacular sunset dining views at outdoor tables at Scott's or the Ella's Marina Restaurant, all within sight of the villa. On Tuesday nights, the balcony is the place to be as Shelter Cove becomes the island's most popular destination with free live music and fireworks. But all back to peace and quiet by 10:00 p.m. Fun and relaxing at the same time: The best of both worlds.

Completely Renovated: The bright and airy second-floor villa has floor-to-ceiling windows; a newly renovated kitchen with granite, tumbled stone and European stainless-steel appliances; tile floors throughout the common area; newly carpeted bedrooms, and updated bathrooms. The master bedroom with a king-sized bed overlooks the harbor, while the front bedroom, with two full-sized beds, overlooks the pool area. The den has a huge 50' Panasonic flat-screen plasma TV with an advanced-component sound system that includes AppleTV and iPod/mp3 player hookups, so you can listen to your own music on this awesome system. The dining room table seats six, while the breakfast bar accommodates another three for meals. An outdoor high-top table on the covered balcony is the best location for sunset gatherings or early-morning coffee. Overall, the upscale decor has a beach theme using sunset colors, wicker, glass and a mix of light woods against newly painted neutral walls. Calm and relaxing feel, through and through.

So much to do...without a car: Nowhere on the island offers more to do, without driving anywhere! Enjoy the building's private pool, located within the gated grounds. And since Shelter Cove is part of Palmetto Dunes, guests have access to Palmetto Dunes for beach, golf (2 courses) and tennis (fees apply for golf & tennis). Guests also have use of the owner's four new 26' beach bikes for the duration of their stay. Beach access for Shelter Cove guests is a one-mile bike ride away along paths under 278 and through Palmetto Dunes, or it can be accessed by car or the Palmetto Dunes Beach Buggy. The Buggy is a free shuttle service available to Shelter Cove guests during season that takes you to the beach, the grocery store or the mall, so you don't have to step foot in your car from the time you arrive until you are ready to depart. Within five minute walk from the villa, you have access to dining, entertainment, canoeing, kayaking, dolphin cruise, sunset cruise, dinner cruise, charter fishing and much much more!

Why Byron Ackerman chose Shelter Cove

Shelter Cove can be so many different things--all depending on your mood: It's Festive and fun; or it's Quiet and romantic; or it's an Adventure on the water; or... And you get to change your mind every day about what you want it to be.

What makes this condo unique

Terrific mid-island location in Palmetto Dunes Plantation. Bike/walking paths everywhere. On-the-water location. Restaurants and shops all around in a Mediterranean Village setting, Palmetto Dunes 'Dunes Buggy' for free transportation--many guests don't get back into their cars until it's time to leave the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the condo for a week. The place was big, clean, and had everything we needed. The view was wonderful! The owner was great to work with and answered my many questions.

Fantastic condo in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smoothly with this rental. Starting with quick and informative communication from Byron (the owner), timely communication of info about the condo as well as vacation in general. The condo was exactly as pictured and definitely has the "wow" factor. The kitchen, as well as looking great, was very well equipped. Bikes and beach chairs, as well as lots of fresh towels were included! We didn't have one constructive criticism....everything was above our expectations! If you might enjoy sitting out on the balcony overlooking the harbour with the electric bbq doing the work for you, then this is the place!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Shelter Cove! Byron was awesome and send a list of his favorite restaurants and things to do in the area. The condo was well equipped to meet all of our needs! Rooms were comfortable and all had smart TVs (yay for Netflix on vacay!). We loved the restaurants (ate at 3) and loved that we could hear live music from the balcony in the evenings...not to mention the view! The beach was less than 5 minutes away and was amazing (you could use the bikes or walk to get there, no car necessary...we only drove because we had our two young children with us). Not too crowded and the water was great. This place was fantastic and we will ABSOLUTELY be returning. The ONLY negative thing I can say about Shelter Cove (had nothing to do with this unit) is that the pool is very small, was FREEZING, and was full of leaves every time we attempted to go. Like I said though, that has nothing to do with this particular unit.

Close to shopping and restaurants...Skull Creek (http://www.skullcreekboathouse.com) is amazing!! The calamari with remoulade sauce is to die for! Fish tacos also get a huge thumbs up! And the outlet mall is less than 10 minutes away.

My only regret was not staying for a full week!! We will not make that mistake again, already planning to return in the fall!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words! We try really, really hard to do a good job with our place. About the pool...I see the pool maintenance company there several times a week and have almost never seen the pool in anything less than extremely clean condition. No, it's not huge, (there's a photo on this page) but I've been hearing the laughter coming from my own kids at that pool from the time they were 2-3 up until now at high school age. Amazingly, the kids often opt to go there instead of the beach. I have to admit though, I've not been to the pool in January. So, if there were leaves in the pool, it's not OK with me and I'll get on the pool company about it. I sincerely appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Happy to have you stay with us and please come back when you can. Also, thanks for your restaurant recommendation--gotta get back to Skull Creek next time I'm there!

HHI Shelter Cove stay

  • 4 of 5

Great place with wonderful views from the balcony. Having a Grill out there is also a big plus. So many good restaurants in walking distance and convenient beach access at the Disney property. Great location for bike riding. Very central location on the island.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I loved our stay at the Shelter Cove Condo. The sunsets were absolutely amazing! There was something for everyone. My 8 year old and husband loved the boats and water. My 25 year old and 15 year old daughters and myself loved the bikes and events going on in shelter cove at night. We ate at 2 of the restaurants and the condo needed nothing. I cooked burgers on the amazing grill one night and we had pasta one night. As we left we realized we only left once! The beds and pillows were great and comfy! We will defiantly go back! Highly recommend this unit. Byron was great to work with! The TV's were a little fancy... but we figured it out finally! Awesome place!

HHI Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this condo and about the owner. The condo location is perfect: plenty of dining and shopping within walking distance, an easy bike ride/walk to the beach, and free transportation within Palmetto Dunes is just a phone call away. The included bikes (saved us a couple hundred bucks) were super-convenient. We just loved the condo: good air, nicely equipped kitchen, wonderful balcony, Apple TV on the big screen, outdoor electronic grill, awesome beach chairs, Roku in the bedroom, no keys to keep up with, great Wifi, etc., etc. I have rented multiple times via VRBO and this was my best experience yet. Byron is so clear with his communications, and everything he described was spot on. Tuesday night fireworks from the balcony are not to be missed. I would have absolutely no hesitation in staying here again!
