Truly a short walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this Hickory Cove Villa for three weeks in May/June 2017. Overall we had a great experience. We have been coming to HHI for many years and are very familiar with Palmetto Dunes, especially the area that Hickory Coves is in.

Some good points:

-throughout the booking process, communication with the owners was great, they were friendly and always responded quickly

-Hickory Coves is a very short walk to the beach with a nice public access close by. My 4 year old was able to make the short walk with no complaints, it was close enough to walk back and forth to the beach if we forgot something or needed a drink refill

-things about the condo I liked were the table with 8 chairs in the kitchen as well as 8 chairs out on the deck; kitchen was well equipped with all the plates, bowls, cups, small appliances, utensils that we needed; master bed was very comfortable; there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets in the closets; outdoor shower head to spray off after beach

Negative points:

-parking in Hickory Coves was not great. There were a few spots close to our villa that seem to be already claimed by owners of the villas on either side that lived there. At one point the next door neighbor parked their car directly in between two spots so no one else could park there

-the pool area (especially the bathrooms) always seemed to be dirty. Garbage laying around, empty cups, broken pool toys

- the condo was for sale when we stayed in it. This was not communicated to us by the owners. One day while my son was at the condo, a realtor attempted to come in saying he was scheduling a showing

-things inside the condo that could use some work - the air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms did not keep up well during the day when it was hot outside. They were fine and nice and cool at night though; the dishwasher is really old and although it ran, did not clean the dishes, we had to wash everything by hand; the washer in the laundry closet is new and works great, however, it is too big and the door to the laundry closet can't shut, not a big deal except for when you wanted to sit in the living room it was loud if you have the washer and dryer running; the fridge does not have an ice maker only ice cube trays which was a bummer; on the listing it says that have a gas grill but when we arrived there was only a charcoal grill; shower head in the master needs to be replaced, water did not spray out well; no TV in the bedroom with the twins

Great stay in close proximity to beach

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable condo in the heart of Palmetto Dunes. 5 minute to beach but backyard overlooking golf course so nice and quiet spot. Comfy beds and kitchen had everything we needed for lazy big breakfast mornings. We'd do it all over exactly the same! Thanks!

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 (=+1 extra kid) truly enjoyed this condo. The sleeping arrangements were perfect, as we had 4 girls and 1 boy, plus 2 adults. Our daughters all shared the room with the double beds and our son had a room to himself. Each bedroom had its own bath, but there was an extra full bath on the main floor, besides the Master bath.

The beach was a 5 minute walk and the pool was about 1 minute away, although the pool was heated too hot in June and no one spent too much time there. That should be addressed.

The condo was clean and neat and the kitchen was well equipped. There was a nice deck with plenty of chairs and a charcoal grill. The mattress in the Master bedroom was the most comfortable we have ever slept in... it was better than ours at home. We took a picture of the label so we could try to find one at home.

Great place. Owners were easy to work with. Definitely on our list to stay again. I would say the only negative was that the community pool was too hot.

We stayed at this villa in 3/06.

A very very nice place, it was clean, very comfortable and very spacious. The Kitchen area is perfect with all the equipment to meet your needs. The walk to the beach is quick and easy. There is a convenience store within walking distance. We all had a wonderful time and will stay here again during our next visit.
