About Michael & Maryellen Kelly

We love the beach! We have been vacationing here since 2002 with our children and, occasionally, our extended family. Each year we make the drive from New Jersey, or 'Jersey' as we call it, for our week or two on the island. This year, 2014, we were able to purchase the villa from Michael's parents and now we own our own slice of paradise! We are very happy to call H.H.I. our second home and grateful for the opportunity to spend more time here!

Michael & Maryellen Kelly purchased this villa in 2014

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well furnished and is ideal for vacationing in HHI. We enjoyed kayaking, biking (on the beach) and exploring Savannah. The fireworks display on Tuesday night in Shelter Cove and visiting Harbour Town were particular highlights. Michael and Maryellen kept in touch and provided all the information we needed for a great vacation. Thanks !

We love watching the fireworks, too! We would love to welcome you back in the future! Michael & Maryellen

Great HH Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This wasn't our first trip to HH. It has become a family destination. Our time spent at your villa was great. We live St. Andrews.. (The vegetaion in HH is one of the reason we love going there).The villa was spacious and comfy. Thanks for the cable and wifi. ( a must with two teenage daughters. Lol ) everything we needed was there. The lofted second bedroom area was perfect for them especially having a full bath to themselves. Only suggestion.. An electric grill on the deck (if permitted) for those like me who love to grill steaks, and a new lock/knob on the outside closet for easier access to the beach chairs. We had a tough time getting it open. Other than that it was great. The deck was nice for morning coffee. Beaches always clean and we even relaxed by the pool one afternoon. Water was nice, and plenty of shaded areas and even a couple of sun decks. I suggest one hot mammas( great wings!), Reileys ( fabulous pot pie!), and fat baby's.. Pretty decent pizza. We rode our bikes on the beach in the evening and took a nice kayaking trip in the lagoon in Hilton head.. Can't wait for our trip back.. Although because of the heat we may try visiting in the fall. Thanks again for sharing your villa! Can't wait to revisit and will make sure your villa is whee we go!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kim for such a great five star review! We love HHI also, and are happy to share our villa with those who do, too. We are glad you and your family found our villa to be spacious and comfortable. Glad you enjoyed the cable and high speed internet. The loft bedroom with full bath is a great space for the kids to retreat to. Also, the kitchen will be completely renovated this December, 2016. We would love to welcome you and your family back in the future! Mike & Maryellen

St Andrews Vacation Stay

  • 3 of 5

St Andrews is ok. The pool leaves a bit to be desired. It is surrounded by trees and it was difficult to find sun on a consistent basis from 11AM-2PM. The water was so cold (last week of May) that even children who were there refused to swim in it.

The unit we stayed in was a "2 bedroom" which is a generous description. It is a 1 bedroom with beds in a loft. The loft affords absolutely no privacy so if the unit was being shared by 2 couples there could be some uncomfortable moments to say the least. The appliances were dated - the dishwasher racks had places which were rusted through on both the top and bottom racks.

To top it all off, I received a "ticket" for $100 from the local Palmetto Dunes private security for illegal parking at the beach near the Dunes House. I paid it because they charge the people you rent from if you don't but it is a racket. The place where I parked was beyond the "No parking Fire Lane sign". I parked there every day from Tuesday to Friday and got the ticket on Friday. The car behind me (which was not beyond the sign) was also ticketed, but the car behind him was not (I am sure it wasn't because that car clearly belonged to a property owner in Palmetto Dunes).

Here's a suggestion: Clearly mark the no-parking area, put the sign at the line where the no parking starts, and if you are going to paint a yellow line make it more than 2.5 inches wide and refresh the yellow paint more than once every 5 years. It would also help if you blew the leaves off of it once in a while so you could actually see it. (I thought it was really nice of the guy who wrote the ticket to scrape the leaves up so it could be seen when we returned from the beach).

All that being said Palmetto Dunes is our favorite place to stay on HHI. If we return, we would rent this place again as long as we don't bring the family..

Our favorite restaurants are Mangiamo's (Buckeye bar on the island - great pizza and if you go to the restroom you can do your business on a blue and yellow M); Guiseppi's (great antipasto salad, pizza is second to Mangiamo's, it's the Steeler's bar on HHI which would be nice if I weren't Browns fan); and San Miguel at Shelter Cove (wonderful Mexican - they serve "white" Mexican rice which is awesome and totally unique).

I am over Sea Pines, seems like the shops there are tired, the restaurants are overpriced, and we have done the lighthouse enough. Coligny has a Skillets restaurant which was good and the Fudge Shop.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Carl, for your review. We would like to address some of your concerns. St. Andrews Common is a quiet community with lush foliage and lots of shade from its many large southern trees. The pool area has some shady areas as well as full sun areas. As for pools within Palmetto Dunes, the St. Andrews pool is one of the nicest, with plenty of lounge chairs, picnic tables, restroom facilities, pool house, and a deck overlooking the lagoon. Of course, weather and pool water temperatures are beyond anyone's control. Our villa is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Our second bedroom is a loft bedroom with two twin size beds. It is larger than most bedrooms. It also has a walk-in closet and a full, private bath. Our kitchen will undergo a complete renovation in December of 2016. The new kitchen will include all new appliances. We agree with you about Palmetto Dunes being your favorite place to stay. It is our favorite place, also. When you return, just a suggestion---If you are going to one of the beaches or anywhere within Palmetto Dunes or Shelter Cove, use the Dunes Buggy. It's free. You call them and they come and take you where you want to go and then will pick you up and return you to your villa. And again, it is FREE. It is one of the great amenities of Palmetto Dunes. You'll never have to worry about getting a ticket again. Mike & Maryellen

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I immediately felt comfortable staying in this villa. The layout of the villa was very efficiently designed , with everything centralized and convenient to use. The location was also perfect for us, with the workout club a walk away and the beach, golf and tennis a pleasant and safe bike ride on beautiful bike paths. Our hosts were most accommodating, answering all our questions, and providing many activity options, which we took advantage of: tennis, pickleball, golf, the beach, wildlife refuges, horseback riding and lots of exploring with our bikes. We didn't need to go out to eat, with all the fresh seafood available and specialty grocery stores. However, there were many options and we hope to try a few more next time. Yes, we hope to come again!

Another Great Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to your Villa and again it was perfect! The villa is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The location is convenient and located near the beach, restaurants, and shopping. This visit we took advantage of the beautiful pool, which was just steps away. The owners made everything so easy for us. From directions, to recommendations for dinner, they did not disappoint. This was another great weekend with the girls! We are already looking forward to staying again next spring!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute perfect place for us to spend our vacation! Your villa is beautiful and everything was so clean and organized...never a problem finding anything we needed. I don't believe we've ever stayed in a vacation rental that felt like home, until we walked into your villa...it felt like home, only better! Everything was just so comfortable. The location is really great, close to the beaches, so many wonderful restaurants and fun shops, not to mention the beautiful pool, just a very short walk from the villa. Thank you so much for sharing your villa with us...we will definitely recommend it, and you, to our friends who are looking for a wonderful, relaxing vacation! We certainly hope to stay with you again!!
