About Susan Philpott

Susan & Steve Philpott love the beach, golf, & tennis, Palmetto Dunes has to offer, & and they especially love playing the Robert Trent Jones oceanfront golf course. 'We think HHI is the perfect place for a family vacation.'

Susan Philpott purchased this condo in 2003

Why Susan Philpott chose South Carolina

While viewing properties for sale in 2003, we wanted to buy in a private resort area. Palmetto Dunes was just right for us because it's size is not too big, and not too small. With 2 beach accesses, 3 golf courses and an excellent tennis court facility, Palmetto Dunes was the place for us. We picked St. Andrews Common because the units are clustered in groups of 4 per building, vs. all in one building, which makes it very private. The layout is spacious, and having the wrap around patio & garden makes our place feel more like a second home.

What makes this condo unique

We like being close to the pool because it makes it easier to tote your floats, towels, and picnic lunch to and from the pool. When we bought our villa, it came furnished, but over the years, we have personalized it with NEW furniture, appliances, & beach decor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Susan,

This is the first chance that I've had to write since our trip to Hilton Head. Just wanted you to know that the trip was very rejuvenating and restful for our family. Your condo was perfect for our needs and provided a very pleasant stay. You are absolutely correct in your description of your beds!!! They are so comfortable.

Thanks again for allowing us to rent your condo. Hope to come back soon!

Wonderful vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful condo in St. Andrews Common the week of June8-June 15. We absolutely loved it. It was close to everything-beaches, shopping, dining. We were able to bike to the beach in a matter of minutes. Also, when we arrived everything was clean and very nice. We had 5 people stay for the week, and we all fit comfortably. There was plenty of room for our family and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot. We were also right by the pool, which was very convenient for the days where we wanted to go to the pool, come back and get lunch, and go right back to the pool. I would have to say our favorite part was the porch. There are several entrances and the porch is a nice place to sit after a long day at the beach. We definitely had a wonderful time and Susan was a huge help along the way. Whenever we had a question, she was quick to respond and very helpful. I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to have a quiet beach getaway!

Perfectly situated, bright and sunny as well as.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend visiting family and this unit fit the bill. The unit was set up perfectly for a family to unwind and spend time together. But at the same time having the bedrooms off to the side down short hallways gave each other space when down time was needed. There was plenty of room in the den for all of us to fit comfortably and converse. Having the dinning table overlooking the den kept everyone in the loop, especially those on their laptops (a few had homework). I only wished that we could have come during the summer months. The pool looked inviting overlooking part of the lagoon. I'm sure it will be an even nicer view once the new decking is placed along the edge of the pool and the lagoon.

Perfect Location Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Susan's property was so nice and roomy- bed in the master was nice and comfortable and the condo has everything you could need. We so enjoyed our stay at the condo and hated to come home. Perfect location right across from Shelter Cove and so close to all the food and fun on the island. Susan was so easy to work with and responded so fast with follow up. This property would be great for any family it really has so much room and is laid out so nobody is on top of each other. Everything was so nice and clean and looked just like the pictures online. Perfect stay and look forward to staying again. Thanks Again
