Overview

South Carolina Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Shelter Cove Harbor villa at Captains Quarters. One of the closest villas to the water. Incredible view of the Broad Creek and entrance to the Shelter Cove Harbor. Views are great from the inside through floor to ceiling windows or sliding glass doors that lead out to two balconies. One balcony from the Master Bedroom and the other from the Living/Dining area. It is rare to have such an incredible view from a first floor villa. Being on the first floor this close to the water feels like being on a houseboat without the sea sickness. Watch the sea life from the villa, like dolphins, sea otters, sea gulls, egrets and pelicans just to name a few. Or watch people entering or exiting the harbor on water craft ranging from sea kayaks to luxury yachts. Shelter Cove is a Mediterranean-style village on the harbor with a great variety of restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Shelter Cove is also a part of Palmetto Dunes with full access all of it's amenities and beaches.

Location, Location, Location: Shelter Cove is located in the Palmetto Dunes Resort. Palmetto Dunes Resort is rated one of the top family vacation destinations in the US. The resort has three miles of beautiful wide sandy beaches, world class golf courses and tennis courts and miles of shady bike paths under Spanish moss draped century old oak trees. Shelter Cove is a small Mediterranean style village with numerous restaurants and shops. Enjoy Mexican food and drink one night, then French the next or Italian or fresh local seafood. All have indoor and outdoor dining and many offer live music. All within walking distance along the beautiful harbor. Shelter Cove also has on site harbor master to assist booking boating or fishing trips and on site adventure company for kayaking and eco trips.

View, View, View: Wow. As soon as you open the front door, you are drawn to the view thru two large sets of floor to ceiling windows in the living room. The beautiful blue water seems to flow right up to the windows. At first you may not notice the fully renovated villa with the fully equipped kitchen to your left or the large master bedroom with king bed to the right. You are just drawn to the water. You then notice the dining area to the left of the living room with sliding glass doors out to the covered balcony even closer to the water. Slide open the door, walk to the railing and just soak it all in. Take your time, have a seat, unpacking can wait. It is truly amazing. You will never be this close to the water in a villa on the beach. The beaches are great and you can spend as much time there as you like, but the view here along with the peacefulness of the calm water and quite surroundings is truly special.

Great place to spend a relaxing week. Although hot at this time, plenty to do.. Fireworks every Tuesday == watch from your own patio. Kayaking = biking. And clean clean clean.

Great location on HHI - perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time my wife and I have stayed in this apartment. My wife and her family have been coming to Hilton Head for over 20 years, and I have been joining them for over 10 years myself. We keep coming back to Captains Quarters on the Water for so many reasons:

- The location in Shelter Cove is perfect, both for access to amenities in the immediate area (walk to restaurants/shopping, bike to grocery stores/restaurants) but also the perfect mid-island location

- The VIEW! We love just sitting in the living area and watching boats, kayaks, paddleboarders, even dolphins coming and going from the marina. Seriously, a cup of coffee and a good book on the terrace is the perfect way to start the morning or end the day. It's also the ideal location for watching the weekly fireworks show during the summer.

- The apartment is always cleaned to very high standards and outfitted with everything you will need for your stay. Washer, dryer, pots, pans, cooking utensils, flatware, dishware, etc.

- Privacy. We have stayed in the unit at various times throughout the summer and never feel crowded or squeezed. The pool always has an hour or two when it is deserted and we have never been disturbed by other guests in other units.

I almost hate to give such a good review because we want to be able to keep this place as our own private haven, but the owners really deserve praise and you will ABSOLUTELY enjoy your vacation here if you choose this rental.

The condo is beautiful inside and out. The view of the waterway can be seen from every room.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay very much. It is so nice waking up to a view of the harbor. I love the convenience of the pier because I love to fish.

Everything in the condo is in good shape and comfortable. Thand you for a wonderful stay.

Great Centralized Location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, very relaxing to watch the yachts and kayaks go by the condo which is a first floor unit. Condo was spacious, clean, ample linens, and good location for pet. Looking forward to returning next year.
