Palmetto Dunes Villa Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to our very large, newly remodeled and designer decorated 2nd floor 2-bedroom Villa in the award winning, prestigious and gated Palmetto Dunes Resort on Hilton Head Island. Palmetto Dunes was just named one of the Top 25 Family Resort in the World by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Our villa has all new furnishings and it feels Brand New! It 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, most private views in St. Andrews. 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 a much smaller 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, 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 villa.

This villa has the BEST AND MOST PRIVATE VIEWS in St. Andrews Common. 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!

The villa is professionally decorated and newly 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 space 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 brand new 42-inch Panasonic, high definition flat screen television is perfect for viewing the extended high-def channel selection; watching a DVD on the new 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 a bar-height, bistro chair 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.

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 24 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.

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 range. 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 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 and there is 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. Play golf on one of the three world-class golf courses or enjoy tennis at the award winning Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center. Bike the miles of trails using the two cruiser bikes at the Villa for your use; shop at Shelter Cove's markets, shops and mall; take a cruise, charter a boat or fishing trip; kayak in the 11-mile lagoon; fish in the surf or lagoons; dine in the many restaurants; catch a show at the Arts Center; take a short walk or bike ride to the beach or park at one of the private beach access points. All of this is available within the Palmetto Dunes / Shelter Cove Resort and you will have access.

Don't feel like walking, biking or driving? Call the “Dunes Buggy“ and one of the buses will pick you up at your villa and take you anywhere in the resort for no charge. Call again and they'll take you somewhere else or back to your villa. This transportation is available April 1 till September 30, from 8 AM till 9 PM for guests at our villa. Feel like staying very close to home? You can also relax in one of the comfortable lounge chars at the large and beautiful swimming pool and pavilion available exclusively for St. Andrews Common owners and guests... about 100 steps from your villa door.

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 Palmetto Dunes

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, one of the largest villas in St. Andrews. 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 of our units to spoil the beautiful, tropical golf course views. We paid a premium for this villa as it a premium property, in a premium location... the absolute best available in St. Andrews Common.

Our villa is also totally remodeled, designer decorated and newly furnished. 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, other amenities and private beach access points 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 mid-Island location. Two Fuji 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.

Great Place! Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Stan,

We just returned home from our visit to Hilton Head and stay at your villa. Your place was fantastic! The unit is so well cared for and comfortable. You are super organized, which we appreciate and can relate to. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Hope it will be available next time we return to the island!



P.S. We loved grilling out in that perfect setting and watching the Masters – Go Jordan!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property during the month of March for the last several years. It is a pleasure to arrive for vacation each year, the condo is beautifully appointed, clean, comfortable and well maintained. It's a wonderful layout and has nice porch furniture for enjoying the 14th hole at Fazio. It is in a great location to enjoy the many activities available on Hilton Head Island. There are bikes and beach chairs, etc for our use. We especially enjoy being able to walk to some of our favorite restaurants for the condo...Sante Fe, Sea Grass Grill and Ruan Thai. We have already booked again for next year! Thanks for providing us great memories each year.

Wonderful experience -- fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful few days at Hilton Head -- and we loved staying in this villa. Stan was extremely helpful and prompt in all of his correspondence, and every thoughtful detail was in place. The villa was absolutely perfect for us, and we're already talking about making Hilton Head an annual destination. And when we do, we'll be contacting Stan to stay here again. We loved it and can't wait to return!

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa! The pictures do not do it justice. It is roomy, beautiful, and well-equipped. The setting is also beautiful and very peaceful. The beds were very comfortable which was extremely important to us and the villa was very clean--another extremely important detail. Stan was great to work with when booking the villa. My two grandkids had a wonderful time and was impressed with the villa. We would love to stay here again.

The Carroll family of Arkansas gives it 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our villa and for the very nice review. We see the "pictures do not do it justice" comment a lot. I took the pictures myself so I guess maybe I should have hired a professional.. :-). We actually prefer that our guests are pleasantly surprised. Thank you again and come back again soon.

My husband and three young sons travelled to Hilton Head for the first time in July. We are from New England and were excited to try something totally new. Hilton Head, and this villa, did not disappoint!

First, Stan leaves no detail to chance. From the moment I first inquired about renting the villa until my security deposit was promptly returned, Stan was incredibly responsive to all our questions. I can say with all honesty he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Everything about the booking process to the actual renting process was flawless.

The actual villa itself was just as described and more. It was extremely spacious, nicely appointed, sparkling clean, with comfortable beds (if you've ever rented a property with uncomfy beds you know how much that can put a damper on your vacation). The kitchen had everything you could ever want or need and then some. We really appreciated the high quality appliances, including the electric grill. We were pleasantly surprised at how great it worked!

The view of the golf course was beautiful--felt like we were in a treehouse---and we really enjoyed riding our bikes on the cart path after 7 pm! Biking around Palmetto Dunes was so easy and fun--even our 5 year old rode his bike to the beach every day. We appreciated the two beach cruisers that came with the rental, and the discount on the kids' bikes with Outfitters, located right in Palmetto Dunes. They delivered the bikes and even picked them up. Everything is SO easy!

Our kids enjoyed the fireworks on Tuesday night at Shelter Cove and Shannon Tanner!

This villa is in such a convenient location. We loved it, we loved Palmetto Dunes, and we will surely be back! Thanks Stan for a wonderful, yet affordable, way to explore all that Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head has to offer! The only thing wrong is how far away it is from us! :(

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I'm sure that others who may be considering our villa will find great value in the details of this review. We hope you are able to return soon.
