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 La Fontana Waterfront Grille 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.

All the Comforts of Home and Best View of Fireworks!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Hilton Head and we loved it! This condo was comfortable and had everything you would need. We loved using the bikes and the fancy grill! The view for the Tuesday night fireworks was the best possible. The buggy service was so convenient for getting to the beach. And kayaking right from Shelter Cove was easy and enjoyable. We saw dolphins jumping near us kayaking.....amazing experience! Byron covered all questions we could possibly have and made the process smooth.

Hilton Head Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Four adults enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely Shelter Cove rental. The condo is roomy, comfortable and well-equipped and Shelter Cove is our favorite Hilton Head destination. We love the boardwalk for morning exercise and the convenience of shops and restaurants on property. Scheduling a week here is a great idea for a Hilton Head get away.

Even Better the Second Time Around!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay in this condo. It is perfect! Everything is top-notch. The owner, Byron, is professional, easy to deal with, and very responsive, and accommodating. We have been coming to the island for 20 years, and this is our favourite place to be. The location is perfect! The condo feels like home - it has every appliance, and gadget you would need. The electronics are easy to use, and nice! The grill on your own balcony is a super-plus. We will come back again and again...thanks Byron for supplying the back drop for an amazing vacation!

Wonderful condo, would stay there again... and again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. Clean, well appointed and extremely well located. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything I needed... and more. The view of the marina is very soothing. We had all of our meals in the patio area during our 2 weeks' stay. It is very quiet and for a couple of hours during the evenings, we could hear live singing in the background coming from a close-by restaurant. Very soft music, nothing disruptive. My husband appreciated the large Apple TV and the state-of-the art grill. Although we did not use the bikes as much as we intended to, we truly appreciated having them available. The complex is very secured and private parking a few steps from the elevator is wonderful. We thank Byron for everything, we encountered no problems finding the condo, using the TVs or other appliances, finding restaurants or stores nearby since all the information was either sent to us prior to our arrival or readily available at the condo. We definitely intend to return and would recommend this property to our friends.
