About the property

1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2

Our one bedroom condo is larger than most one bedrooms available. Watch the yachts, fishing boats and sightseeing expeditions travel in and out of the marina from this second floor condominium. Don't miss the dolphins drifting in to entertain the visitors. A convenient buggy service is available free of charge, during the summer months, to take you to golf, the beach, dining and shopping in Palmetto Dunes. Don't worry about driving to shops, entertainment and restaurants, as a short walk takes you to all available in Shelter Cove. Every week is July 4th, as Tuesday nights in the summer fireworks light the skies of Shelter Cove. Fishing and island boat expeditions are available from the marina.

Restaurants: Restaurants in Shelter Cove: Ela's restaurant is located steps away from the condo. For seafood there's Scott's and Kingfisher. For continental choices consider Alexander's. Have a margarita and enchilada at San Miguel's at Shelter Cove, try the pizza or Italian specialties at Bucci's. Another restaurant option is Bistro 17. To keep it simple there are grills at every golf club and each resort has a great collection of options for casual fare. One of our favorite restaurants is Old Fort Pub located in Hilton Head Plantation.

Free Buggy Service: Catch a free ride with the Palmetto Dunes Buggy! Available March - September. Hours: 8 AM - 9 PM Sunday - Wednesday, and till 10PM Thurs - Saturday. Extended Summer hours June - August. The Palmetto Dunes Buggy provides courtesy transportation within Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove. Visit the beach, golf courses, restaurants, shops and tennis courts as well as Shelter Cove Harbour, the Mall at Shelter Cove and the Plaza at Shelter Cove. This is an on demand service, and vehicles will be dispatched first come, first served, based on requests received. Vans generally arrive within 10 minutes of your request.

Water Sports in the Marina: Water Sports: Every conceivable water sport is available at Shelter Cove including deep-sea and inshore fishing charters, sport crabbing, sail and power boat rentals, sightseeing and nature excursions and dinner cruises. Encircling the harbour are delightful restaurants and friendly open-air cafes, shops and galleries. And at its center, standing watch over the harbour, is a commanding statue of King Neptune, one of the world's largest working sundials.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visit HH Island 3 times a year. This was by far the best stay ever, apart from having to cut short due to hurricane.

The condo is set out perfect close to elevator close to pool. Being disabled these factors were important.

The bed was huge and very comfortable and the two porches looking out one up into the Harbour and one out to the river gave us a lot to see and watch and take pictures.

You can walk to Ella's have a beer snack or just go on the evening and eat a great meal.

The condo has everything needed. Very well maintained and has all you need for a comfortable stay. Including washer dryer. Also nice breakfast bar with just the right height stools to see out.

I have nothing negative to say at this point just perfect. When your wife states " oh I could stay here forever " you know you have it right.

Melinda the owner is very helpful everything needed was there a week before with full instructions on door entry and tips about neighborhood and many many other things. Thank you Melinda for an awsome one place and stay. We will be back.

Close to shops and restaurants made things even easier.

Top notch definitely a 5 star

Beautiful vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed one of the best vacations in a long time due in part to this beautiful Shelter Cove vacation condo! It was absolutely perfect with all the comforts of home and more! Melinda was very receptive to questions and easy to contact. She couldn't be nicer! The condo was beautiful with 2 balconies looking over the harbor . It was right next door to fabulous restaurants and boat rentals and shops and a few minutes walk to an amazing bakery where we would get cinnamon buns and almond crossaints in the morning! There was nightly entertainment in the Harbor square, that was just far enough to hear the music in the distance if we chose to sit on the balcony and relax , or a few minute walk to enjoy the live festivities! We watched fireworks from the balcony . The bike trail/ running path were right outside the condo. Two separate mornings while relaxing on the balcony after my morning run I was visited by a playful dolphin swimming and splashing around! Now that's something I don't see at home ! We road bikes to the beach and ON THE BEACH! The Palmetto "Dunes Buggy" picked us up usually only a 5 minute wait or less and took us to the beach ( Dunes House) and picked us up when we were ready. We had Fun food and cocktails at the Dunes House on the beach as well! We even found a lovely Catholic Church with a welcoming pastor to attend Sunday mass......I know I am missing so much more! It was an absolutely beautiful place to stay . Thank you Melinda .... we really hope to return . Anyone considering this rental I believe

Would be delighted as we were .

Fantastic Condo And Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo! It is beautifully remodeled and furnished. Thank you Melinda for being so prompt in your replies to all my inquiries. The location of this unit was absolutely perfect! I love the view of the water from every window! The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. We kayaked, drove the water cat boats ( what a blast that was!!) toured Dafuskie island, played miniature golf, saw the play Mama Mia and more! Loved the shopping and restaurants that were right next to the condo. Did I mention that you can watch the fireworks from the balcony of the condo? Just a beautiful vacation!

Hits all the marks.

  • 5 of 5

Melinda's condo was just perfect for us. Great location; everything seemed to be first rate. The condo has been nicely renovated, and nothing seemed to be lacking. The views, the local restaurants, and the convenience of being able to use service roads to reach the grocery and other shopping areas. And the bed was even more comfortable than it looked. Very nice, and Melinda was very responsive.

I'm sure we will be returning.

Great place. Elegant. Excellent view.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to spend a month. Much more like a home than a rental property. Two balconies with great views of Broad Creek and Shelter Cove Marina. Two big bathrooms and a walk in closet. Well-equipped kitchen.

Pleasant walk to restaurants (ELA is next door, but Bucci's, San Miguel, and Mediterranean Harbor are close) along the marina.

We stayed while our house was being repaired (Hurricane Matthew damage). But, we look forward to going back for a vacation.
