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!

Owner's Response: Hi Mary Ann, We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our villa and that we were always available and willing to answer any questions. Steve and I always make sure to keep our cell phones on us on check in day and encourage our guests to call us anytime. I am also glad that you thought the condo was clean, the showers were great, and the kitchen was well stocked.

Location location location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the location of the condo. It's near the pool & a short drive to the beach. The kitchen was perfect & we enjoyed morning coffee on the patio with lush foliage. Whoever rented above us decided to do jogging over our bedroom at 1am every single night & likes to move furniture at that hour too. Obviously no cement flooring between floors as you would get in a hotel but this is probably a problem dependent on who rents above in that particular week. Parking was easy & shelter cove shops & restaurants & Kroger were across from the entrance to palmetto dunes. Everything was clean & the complex is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Hi Dianne, Thank you for being our guest at our villa this spring. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thought it was clean, the complex was beautiful, and that parking and the location was convenient. We love that new super Kroger, and are glad it is just right down the road, too! We have never heard noises from the above unit like you described, so that surprised us. It is not a rental and the owners visit infrequently, so thank you for letting us know. We will inquire about it.

Great condo for the price!

  • 5 of 5

My husband was in Hilton Head for a conference and this was perfect for us and our 1 year old son. Being on the ground floor was great and easy access to the pool. Condo was clean and the owner was easy to contact and very helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. Will definitely stay here again!!
