About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Romantic experience with modern marina front luxury overlooking the yacht basin and incredible sunsets. Picturesque strolls in this Mediterranean inspired village delivers upscale clothing boutiques, souvenir shops, waterfront restaurants, dolphin cruises, kayaking, fishing charters, sunset cruises, and so much more. Your own private covered balcony overlooks the action and becomes the spot for a special champagne brunch or luscious fresh seafood dinner. An over-sized whirlpool tub in the master suite makes your time here truly relaxing and rewarding.

The beach is about a mile from the Villa. You’ll have beach access in Palmetto Dunes, right across the street, with free parking at the Dunes House which is also an oceanfront café and bar with facilities in season. From there you can walk down the beach next door to the Marriott which often features live music and an outside bar and café. If you don't want to drive, there is a free shuttle (Dunes Buggy) that will provide transportation. It doesn't really have a schedule it’s more like a free taxi. Bike rentals are also inexpensive on the island and they will deliver to you and pick up. There are bike racks on the property. You’ll never have to get in your car if you chose! There is an on-site pool and gas BBQ grill for your convenience. The Performing Arts Center – a live entertainment venue - is next door, as is the Chamber of Commerce where you can get info & maps.

You will have your choice of several restaurants right on the harbor including Italian, right beneath the villa, several Seafood options and a Mexican cantina with outside live music, good margaritas and food! All are just steps out the door!

The building has free secure gated parking and a gate w/ coded access for pedestrians leading out to the marina.

Great Place for Two!

  • 5 of 5

Virtually everything you would need within walking distance. The Villa was as described and pictured. It was clean and ready for us as well. With everything so close, we barely moved our car the whole week.

You can’t ask for a better place !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect. 5 star doesn’t do it justice. This place is really a home away from home. Very nicely decorated and extremely clean. The whole atmosphere is great you can sit on the patio and enjoy live music or take 10 min bike ride to the beach. Really a great place to stay!!!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to HHI for many years and have always wanted to stay at Shelter Cove. This villa was a Great location. We liked that it was so convenient to so many shops and restaurants. We enjoyed having a prefect view of the nightly entertainment from the balcony of the villa. The owner was so easy to work with, always returning emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He made us feel like friends rather than a business associate. I'm sure on future vacations to HHI, this villa will be at the top of our list.
