Palmetto Dunes Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our Centrecourt villa is relatively new to the vacation rental market. It has previously been owner- occupied by my wife and I as a vacation getaway.

The villa is centrally located, within easy, short walking distance to Tennis, Golf, Kayaking, Fishing, Biking Trails, and the Beach. Pool is on site.

Enhanced by newly installed carpeting throughout, the villa is well appointed in a bright and cheerful Beach motif within the gated community of the Palmetto Dunes Resort in the heart of Hilton Head. Hilton Head is regarded as one of the nicest family vacation resorts in the U.S. It has received high praise from Travel & Leisure magazine, as well as considered within the top 100 golf resorts in the country, and #3 Tennis resort ranking in the world.

Our airy 1300 square feet, smoke-free villa offers an open, spacious floor plan. There are two large, private bedroom suites within the villa. Each suite has a spacious bedroom, vanity, dressing area, and bathroom. One bedroom has two queen size beds, while the other bedroom has one queen size bed and a sitting area with an over-size lounge chair and a small desk area. There are Allergy Protectors on all beds. TV and DVD are in each bedroom. One bedroom has HDTV. Our villa has FREE Wireless Internet service throughout.

The bedroom suites are separated by a large, open dining area and a vaulted-ceiling family room to give you and your guest’s complete privacy. In addition to a pull-out couch that can sleep two, the family room has over-sized lounge chairs and an entertainment center with TV and DVD. From the family room, the room opens up to our large and secluded, covered deck, overlooking the 11-mile lagoon. Our deck has a ceiling fan to give you extra comfort on a particularly hot day.

The kitchen area is to the left as you enter the villa. It is fully equipped for your vacation needs including a refrig, dishwasher, disposal, small appliances, dishware, and a washer & dryer. It features a counter area with two bar stools that open into the spacious dining and family room areas.

Our villa is located within a small, private group of villas, called Centrecourt, in the heart of Palmetto Dunes and near the ocean. Centrecourt is ideally situated. In addition to its own private pool, it is just a short walk to tennis, golf, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and clearly some of the best beaches on Hilton Head.

You may choose to relax on our own secluded, large covered deck that overlooks the 11-mile lagoon. The lagoon flows along fern and tree shaded banks as it winds its way throughout the entire Palmetto Dunes Resort. In time, you will see a great variety of wildlife, including Blue Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, and an occasional “gator”, to name a few. Later, you may wish to boat or go fishin’ in this stocked lagoon. Kayak, canoe, even guided fishing charters, are all available at the Palmetto Dunes Outfitters Rental shop, just a short walk (or drive) from the villa. We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on Kayak & Canoe rental.

Did I mention the BEACH??? The beach at Palmetto Dunes is 3+ miles long and is considered by many to be the finest beach on Hilton Head. The Beach is just an easy 5-8 minute walk, or a short drive from our villa- about a quarter mile. Once there, you have free access to the private Palmetto Dunes/Disney Recreation Pavilion with free parking, picnic tables & grill, a snack bar, and restrooms.

If TENNIS is your game, we'll give you up to one (1) hour of FREE tennis per day, plus other DISCOUNTS on tennis activities. There are several, large Tennis court complexes within a very short walk of our villa. About 300 yards from our villa is the Centrecourt Tennis Courts with 8 courts. About a quarter mile further are the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Courts, with 15 clay and 2 hard courts (8 are lighted) as well as special activities such as tennis clinics for adults and children alike.

If you love to play GOLF, you’re in the right place. There are 3 superb courses within Palmetto Dunes, including the Fazio Course, about 500 yards from our villa, as well as Arthur Hills and Robert Trent Jones just a short way down the road. We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on all 3 courses.

All together, there are about 27 semi-private and public courses in the Hilton Head area for you to choose.

If you enjoy taking a BICYCLE ride, this is the place. We offer our guests DISCOUNTS on bike rental.

Hilton Head has miles and miles (about 32 miles) of paved bicycle paths that will take you to large portions of the island. Bikes are also allowed on the Beach. Bring your own bike, or, for your convenience, bike rentals are available at Palmetto Dunes Outfitters Rental Shop, just a short walk from the villa.

If you look forward to a day out SHOPPING, Hilton Head will not disappoint you. Numerous retail shops and boutiques abound throughout the area, to include the shops at Shelter Cove Marina across the street from the main entrance to Palmetto Dunes, as well as the Tanger Outlets just off-island with literally 100’s of outlet stores.

Also, there a number of very good RESTAURANTS nearby. One of the most popular restaurants, Alexander's, is just across the 11-Mile Lagoon bridge near the rear of our villa.

About Harv Wells

My wife and I love the ocean and wanted a nice upscale family getaway. We tried many places along the sea coast, but preferred Hilton Head Island (SC) above all. So, when I retired a while back, we decided to purchase a 'second home' for our getaways. We bought a Centrecourt villa in Hilton Head's Palmetto Dunes Resort. It was centrally located and offered easy access to the ocean, boating, golf, tennis, fishing, and yes, lots of shopping. For the past 12 years we have used it for ourselves and our family. And now, with our upcoming travel plans, we will be using it far less. So we decided to rent the villa to folks who would really enjoy it.

Harv Wells purchased this condo in 1997

Why Harv Wells chose Palmetto Dunes

We decided to buy this Centrecourt villa in this location because of its seclusion and the magnificent view of the lagoon from our back deck. Yet, we are only a short distance from the ocean, golf, tennis, even fishing.

What makes this condo unique

Location. Location. Location. We love the idea of taking a short walk and having a choice of outdoor activities so close by. Yet, in the midst of all these nearby activities, we thoroughly enjoy the seclusion while sitting on our back deck overlooking Palmetto Dunes 11-mile lagoon. In fact, we often have dinner or light appetizers on the back deck and spend hours unwinding after boating, golf, or whatever strikes our fancy.

Great Villa, Owners, Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hilton Head Island. We were looking forward to a vacation filled with activities….golf, biking, kayaking along with plenty of beach time.

Well we found it on Hilton Head and this top floor villa was in the absolutely perfect location! Literally seconds from bikes, pool, tennis, golf and kayaks with the beach a 3-5 minute bike ride away.

The villa was exceptionally clean with plenty of towels, stocked kitchen, 3 TV’s, deck/porch overlooking the lagoon and everything was labeled so you had zero questions when you arrived. Just unpack and relax! Having a washing machine and dryer was a pleasure and next time we will pack half as much since washing clothes was convenient. Harv was fantastic to work with and provided us with any information we needed as well as plenty of literature in the condo to help find restaurants and activities to round out your vacation. Palmetto Dunes is central to everything on the island(via car or bike), the villa is great, and the rental process simple, accommodating and a pleasure…We Will Be Back!!!

Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to the Well's Center Court Villa was thoroughly enjoyable. We wanted quiet privacy that was a short walk to the ocean and close to the amenities of Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove. We found this in this nicely appointed and very comfortable second-floor villa. Water views from the villa are beautiful. Owners were great to work with. Our rental was dog friendly as were the beach goers, resulting in a very pleasant experience.

This property was advertised accurately, and we highly recommend this villa for a delightful Hilton Head vacation.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

First comment is about the owners of the villa. Wow, what can I say except that they were the best people I have ever dealt with. The owners were so receptive and were always available to answer any and all questions. Their villa was so perfect. Our first observation upon our arrival was how clean it was and looked just like the pictures. It had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. Location, Location, Location. The location of the villa is just perfect. The backyard is the 11-mile lagoon. My son and I fished it and had Blue Herons and even an alligator visit us. We caught a lot of fish. We had a bite on every cast. We were within walking distance of the general store and an outfitter where we rented kayaks and took a trip on the lagoon. Some of the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. And the beach is within walking distance. This was one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on. Always saw lifeguards on duty and never had one issue with anyone on the beach.

One activity that should be a must for all visitors is a fishing charter. I took my 9-year old son on a charter with Captain Trent Malphrus of Palmetto Lagoon Charters. He was so good with my son that I felt like we had known Trent our whole life. We caught a couple of nice Red Drum and about 15 sharks including Black Tips, Bonnets (that we thought were Hammer Heads) and Reef Sharks.

The best thing about Hilton Head is it is not as commercialized as some of the other beaches but still has a lot of activities for the kids. My wife and daughter enjoyed shopping at the Tanger Outlets and Coligny Plaza. Some of the restaurants we recommend are The Crazy Crab, The King Fisher and The Salty Dog in Sea Pines. The Crazy Crab had the best crab legs. Also, if you are interested in a new tattoo, go see the artists at Incredible Ink. Very good artists and very reasonable prices.

I also took my son to Parris Island to show him where I spent a few months of my life back in 1988. Go to the museum if you want to spend a good time learning about the history of Marine Corps recruit training. Make sure you stop at the parade deck if there are any recruits practicing their drills for graduation.

The only thing I did not get to experience was the golfing. All of the courses are beautiful but we did not have room for the clubs. This just gives me a reason to return.

Thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful villa and we will be returning again very soon.

My husband and two children (ages 9 and 17) absolutely LOVED this villa. It absolutely felt like HOME. We loved the lagoon - saw many birds and an alligator! We kayaked and fished in the lagoon too! The nearby pool was wonderful. Beach access down the road was great with free parking. So many shopping opportunities nearby too. We also loved the proximity to the General Store and went there just about every day for a cold drink or ice cream. I would HIGHLY recommend this Villa to anyone wanting a beach vacation full of rest and relaxation.

Perfect place for us in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our visit to Hilton Head and loved this very comfortable and cozy Villa!! It was perfect for our family of four and we loved the lay out of it. The Villa was very clean and had everything we could want. Loved the lagoon view off the back porch and enjoyed watching the wildlife daily. Loved the location, so close to the pool and the tennis center. Just a minute drive to the beach, but can also be walked. We loved being able to walk our dog to the beach in the evening.

The owners were super nice and helpful and gave us lots of information about the area before arriving. We took total advantage of the free tennis and were so pleased at the service at the Tennis Center. The people that work there were super helpful and so accommodating!!

We were impressed at all there is to do on the island. Anything you could ask for is there and convenient to get to. We enjoyed Coco's on the Beach, One Hot Mama's, Old Oyster Factory, Hilton Head Brewing Company, Pino Gelato and on our way out found Joe Loves Lobster Rolls which was a wonderful find!! Can't wait to return just to get a Lobster Roll from Joe, haven't had a better one since visiting Maine.

We fell in love with Hilton Head again this visit and would happily return to this property. We would recommend it for anyone traveling with a pet, anyone with children, or two couples. Thank you so much Harv and Nancy for use of your wonderful villa!!

Owner's Response: Wow!!! How can we add anything to that. Thank you.

Ditto to the Other Glowing Reviews

  • 5 of 5

The owners are a pleasure to deal with, and the villa is everything they -- and the other reviewers -- say it is. Among other things, we enjoyed the peace and quiet, the superb location, the abundance of large windows with lovely views, the huge selection of TV & movie stations, and the many amenities and comforts that made this unit feel like home. As we told the owners, we hope to return to HH next year and can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else on the island.

Tip: From the villa's parking lot, look behind the tennis courts for the footbridge over the lagoon to The General Store, where you can get your morning newspaper, coffee, and hot breakfast sandwiches.

Restaurants we enjoyed included Alexander's and Big Jim's (both a short walk from the villa), Hudson's Seafood, Old Fort Pub (be there for sunset), nearby Stacks for breakfast (fabulous pancakes), and Ruan Thai (just outside Palmetto Dunes). Places & activities we enjoyed included a visit to old town Bluffton and its many art and craft galleries, tennis round robins arranged by the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Club, the Coastal Discovery Museum, a walk through Savannah's historic district (about an hour's drive away), and Calibogue's self-guided tour of Daufuskie Island, which included a scenic ferry ride, a delicious lunch at The Old Daufuskie Crab Company Restaurant, and golf carts to explore the rustic island.
