About Bob Kunath

Owners lives in Illinois and Florida, are active boaters and enjoys the activities, climate and restaurants in Hilton Head.

Bob Kunath purchased this villa in 2005

Why Bob Kunath chose Hilton Head Island

Ocean Palms offers the best value in an RCI Gold Crown villa on Hilton Head. It's close to the beach, the low-country architecture is unique compared with most villas in Hilton Head, and is close to all shopping. And it's the only villa community that offers access to all the amenities of a Four Star resort, the Westin Hilton Head Resort, where USA TODAY listed the pools as among the ten best in the US.

What makes this villa unique

We walk every morning to the beach, and bike most anywhere on the island; there are 50 miles of bike trails. We occasionally play golf, and the courses included are first class, rated among the best 75 in the US by Golf Digest. There's plenty to do when we are not on the course or the beach. We board our Bichon, Molly at nearby Evergreen Kennel, take her out for beach walks and trails so she can enjoy Hilton Head too.

Can't Get Enough of the Ocean Palms!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to the Ocean Palms condos. We love this place and all of our stays have been excellent,and while all owners were fine, Bob was certainly the most communicative and informative. We appreciated his very fair rates and loved the condo. It is very spacious, convenient and comfortable. We love the option of making meals there (particularly for breakfast and lunch), or going out to all the great restaurants that Hilton Head has to offer. The use of the Westin resort is what puts the condo over the top. It is a beautiful facility and we enjoy the pools, hot tub, and the outdoor bar and restaurant. Then of course there's always the beach! This resort is not "stuffy" and yet feels high end. No need for passes, etc. to get around, and you can walk, use the shuttle or drive to the Westin, golf courses, and beach.The special golf rates included in the condo rental are of great advantage for my golfing husband. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. We spoke with one long time bartender who had been there 18 years and loved it - I think they treat their employees well which of course makes all the difference in the world. I encourage anyone to rent from Bob. The value far exceeds any other place we have researched in this area, and renting from this owner is far more economical than doing so through the Westin.

Wonderful condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at your condo. The new kitchen is very nice! We enjoyed using the tennis courts and golf course. Even though there is a shuttle to take the guests to the Westin, my husband chose to walk the peaceful short distance to his conference.

While we were at the condo, the locks were changed from a key lock to a keyless push button lock. What a welcome change! We loved not bringing a key every time we went out!

We would love to come back again for another visit!

Great two weeks!

  • 5 of 5

The two weeks in late May, early June were fantastic at this condo. Everything is modern and the furnishings are very nice. If you golf, the deal at the Heritage courses(Port Royal, Shipyard, Oyster Reef; and both Palmetto Hall courses) is very good. You can save about $30 a day on average for one round. The concierge at the Westin coordinated all the tee times and they treated me like a king. Every little change of tee time was accomodated without fuss.

It's a bit far to walk to the Westin but the shuttle was there within five minutes every time I called. The Westin facilities are a great addition to this unit. The pool and beach are fantastic and the exercise room is very nice. I used the screened in porch to watch turtles swim in the lagoon just below the deck. It was my first time in Port Royal and I've already scheduled another trip next year.

A tropical vacation home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this unit three times now and won't consider anyplace else in Hilton Head. The unit is spacious and comfortable for our family of five or 4-6 adults. Ocean Palms offers the privacy of a condo community and also the amenities of the Westin Resort. The beach, pools (on-site and at the Westin), spa/workout facility, golf, tennis, bike trails, and local shopping/dining are all easily accessible. Condo management is responsive if needed.
