Shelter Cove Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

GREAT RATES! Cozy bungalow—refurbished and redecorated Spring 2011--with all the comforts of home and lots of extras! GREAT FOR A ROMANTIC the master bedroom, enjoy the large jacuzzi under skylight windows, Perfect vacation spot for a small family. WE EVEN SUPPLY THE BEACH BAG, BEACH TOWELS AND BEACH CHAIRS! This will be a 'one of a kind' vacation stay. This will be your best vacation ever! Read on to see why.....

THIS IS WHAT SETS US APART FROM OTHER RENTALS: I always hated having to grocery shop immediately after my arrival. Units managed by rental agencies seem sterile and unlike home. They are totally stripped of food of any sort (this even includes salt and pepper!) Since this unit is privately managed, we offer essentials that allow you to immediately relax and get in vacation mode. The unit will be stocked with some or all of the following: Soft drinks, snacks, salt, pepper, sugar, artificial sweetener, cooking oil, coffee, non-dairy creamer, etc.

My family has vacationed in Hilton Head for 20 years. After we discovered Harbourside and Shelter Cove, we never stayed ocean front again! The Harbour has it all!! Our one bedroom condo is cozy, comfortable and very private. This unit is a perfect romantic “get away” for a couple as the master suite with its large mirrored jetted tub is privately situated up the spiral staircase. However, there is plenty of room for additional guests as the leather sofa in the living room converts to a queen bed and there is a full bath downstairs. Electric fireplaces in the master bedroom suite!

There is so much to do at Shelter Cove Harbour! You can take a stroll along the harbor and look at all the beautiful yachts and boats. On the first level of the complex there are over 30 shops and restaurants. The Marina features Hilton Head Island's largest deep-water yacht basin. Every conceivable water sport may be enjoyed here, from deep-sea and inshore fishing charters to sport crabbing, sail and power boat rentals, sightseeing and nature excursions and dinner cruises. Shelter Cove is the center of evening activities. Harbourfest is held from April until the end of August and has exhibits, vendors, entertainment, and loads of fun for the entire family. Shannon Tanner is an island tradition and has been performing at Shelter Cove for almost 20 years and has two shows nightly. The theater and the islands only indoor shopping mall are only steps away! The beach is less than a mile away--an easy walk or bike ride. Or, since Harbourside is a part of Palmetto Dunes (the premier resort on the island) take advantage of Palmetto Dunes free transportation, the Dunes Buggy, an air conditioned van which will pick you up at your door and deliver you to the beach, mall, or any Palmetto Dunes properties FREE of charge. When you are ready to return, simply give the shuttle a call.

Beach access is at either of Palmetto Dunes two beach houses. Stroll along three miles of uncrowded beach. Enjoy Hilton Head Canoeing or kayaking on 11 miles of winding lagoons teeming with wildlife. Rent a bike and cruise over miles of paved bike paths or enjoy a little beach cycling along the shore. Or simply relax and soak up the rays.

Take advantage of our 'extra services' and let our home become yours for a few days or weeks. I feel certain that you will want to come back again and again.

About Jenny or Jerry Thomas

I am a public school teacher/administrator. My husband (of 35+ years) owns a financial services business.

Jenny or Jerry Thomas purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jenny or Jerry Thomas chose Shelter Cove

My family and I have vacationed on Hilton Head Island since 1988. In the mid 1990's, just by chance, we stayed at Harbourside in Shelter Cove. We fell in love with Shelter Cove and all it has to offer. The best dining is on the harbour, the best entertainment is on the harbour, the best shopping is right here! Everything is steps from your door. There is nowhere else like it! We love it here.

What makes this condo unique

The harbor is the center of activity for Hilton Head Island. Shannon Tanner performs nightly and is great entertainment for all ages, but especially young children. Harbourfest is held during the summer and has exhibits, vendors, entertainment and weekly firework displays. The restaurants have great food as well as live entertainment. Every type of water sport is available here—dinner cruises, crabbing, kayaking, night shark fishing, etc. Nothing is better than watching a beautiful sunset over the harbor. The harbor is well lit and perfect for evening walks or bike rides (the rest of the island has very low lighting). Everything you need is right here—and the beach is just a mile away!

My husband and I just returned from a stay at this condo in Shelter Cove. We found the unit to be just as described in the website and in the pictures. It was very clean and homey - and I am a tough critic! We were very comfortable there and loved the Shelter Cove area! So awesome having a variety of restaurants virtually at your doorstep! Had bikes delivered to the unit and spent alot of time biking on the paths and the beach itself. Jenny was great to work with and sent us some great suggestions for things to do during our stay. Can't wait to return!!!

This is the 2nd year my husband, son, fur baby, and myself have stayed in Jenny's condo. She is excellent to work with!! The condo is beautiful and great location. I love the fact that our fur baby gets to travel with us as well. The hot tub is a favorite for us. We love evening walks around the harbor, listening to live music, and Scott's Market under the condo has great food!! I can't say enough great things about the condo, the location, and Jenny. I highly recommend this condo! Will definitely return again!

More than what we expected!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this little condo of joy! My husband and I made a last minute decision to vacation at HHI as we both discovered we had Memorial Day off! (Rare for me as a nurse!) We searched vbro for days and came across this posting! We got lucky because from what I understood, a booking had fallen through and we got lucky! LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY because it was affordable, the weather was amazing, and our little "home" for the weekend was so cozy and wonderful! Jenny, the owner, is the most pleasant person to work with! Everything was smoothe and clear! She included information for us about the island, restaurants, and things to do! On our drive to the island, we saw Dolphins swimming in the intercostal. So cool! I knew right then, we made a good decision! Ha! Staying at shelter cove, it gave us access to the less crowded beaches and the dune buggy that took us from our condo to the beach! That was the best! It was like our own taxi to the beach every day! Free of charge! The Harbour View was a-mazing! SucH a relaxing environment! We are on the Harbour every night, went kayaking steps from our condo, and listened to live music every night! We visited sea pines and Harbour town as well, both not far from SHelter cove. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and relaxing at the condo along with all of the fun that the shelter cover community offered! We will be back and will stay here if available! Jenny, thank you for everything! We had the best time!

I, my boyfriend, and our canine companion stayed in this lovely unit 4/19-4/24/15 and it was delightful. The owners were swift and accommodating to work with on short notice. The description of the 'best deal' is so accurate. They have outfitted this unit in a great manner. All the added luxury amenities like the tub by the bedroom with skylight, the fireplace, all these things, the ceiling fans, the decor... all made it super pleasant. They also have a wonderfully stocked kitchen both as far as appliances and food items to start the stay out with. Actually all the beach, trip, vacation needs are amply shared with tenants such as beach towels, chairs, movies, deck furniture, candles and soaps etc the list goes on. The king size bed was most comfortable and all the pillows and throws available added great comfy coziness. We were in town for some medical appts and the pleasure of this lodging really eased some of the stresses inherent in the flow of those days. We loved this place and the Shelter Cove proximity to everything too. We hope to work with these owners again when staying in HHI. We appreciate your attention to providing a property that meets its value.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the condo for 4 nights during the winter holidays. The condo location was nice with steps to the cove area and mid-island to everything. After checking in we realized that this was one of the few units that faces two parking lots and a street. All of the other units in the building face the water. There is no water view promised in the description but will be good to know. The living room coat closet was overstuffed with house cleaning items and we found it hard to find space to keep shoes, coats etc. Our stay was spoiled because it rained while we were there and the roof started leaking above the dining area. I mentioned to the owner and Jenny was going to look into it. The dining area is cozy with big windows. The upstairs bedroom was nice and big. The owner is easy to work with and provided clear check-in instructions.

Owner's Response: We do not advertise this condo as being harbour front. However, step just outside the door and you are on the harbour with its great restaurants, shops, entertainment, etc. The location is superb—it is in the center of everything. We did experience a problem leak in the dining area. Repairmen were called repeatedly but found it difficult to detect where the water was coming in. Finally the clay tiles were removed and the decking underneath was replaced. Hooray!…the leak is fixed! We work hard to give renters an excellent vacation experience. This is a great condo at a very affordable price. Check out our other reviews!

Great location, great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location! It was near many nice stores, restaurants, and the beach. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed! We enjoyed being able to save some money by cooking breakfast and lunch at home and then going out to dinner. The condo had a really nice hot tub, comfortable bed, and nice balcony to drink coffee in the morning. The owners were responsive and very helpful in providing us with suggestions and things to do in the area. We really enjoyed our stay!
