About Cheryl Gillette

Our family was on the way home from a Disney World vacation when we stopped to visit Hilton Head Island on the recommendation of a friend. After spending several days on the island we knew that this was the place that we would want to come year after year as long as we could share the costs of ownership with others who would like to rent from us. We now are coming down not only with our children but with our grandchildren who love vacationing there as much as we do. Last summer Ava, then 6 and Nile, then 8, turned into real swimmers and would spend hours doing either frog and dolphin-like strokes and searching the ocean floor for sand dollars which they kept under water so as not to hurt them. This was truly a life-changing summer vacation. The girls went home to sign up for swim team and soon after were telling me about their flip turns and swim events. We hope that you will read the comments many of our guests have made to see how many special vacation opportunities abound and will find the magic of the island for yourselves.

Cheryl Gillette purchased this villa in 1993

Why Cheryl Gillette chose South Carolina

We chose our sunny 7806 Centrecourt villa because of the beautiful view of the lagoon which sparkles in the sun and attracts egrets, herons, and other wildlife. The villa offers excellent views of the lagoon since all major living areas in it do overlook it. The villa also has a light airy feel since it faces the south and also has a vaulted ceiling and bay window. We love the layout which is spacious and well planned. Centrecourt is both a short walk to the beach and centrally located on the island so essentially everything that we could want to do or see is close by. Each visit brings new discoveries and new adventures. Come and see for yourselves. You too will be won over by this wonderful vacation villa, the beauty of the surroundings, and the wealth of ways to explore and enjoy the island! And, now we have added 4 villas nearby to our group so that groups can easily rent 2 or 3 villas if those villas are still available to book. We find that folks return year after year to the beauty and comfort they seek and know they can count on!

What makes this villa unique

There are so many unique benefits to staying at our 7806 Centrecourt villa or one of the other Centrecourt or Turnberry villas of neighbors in our group. You will vacation in a villa that is well-appointed yet surprisingly affordable and kept in immaculate condition. When renting a Centrecourt villa you will have free tennis court times at the adjacent courts plus weekly tennis exhibitions to view, free Palmetto Dunes Buggy service to take you anywhere you wish to go in Palmetto Dunes or Shelter Cove, weekly fireworks during the high seasons, dining opportunities at both casual and elegant restaurants, and many exciting night spots for dancing and fun. You can explore the pristine marshes of Broad Creek, paddle our 11 mile lagoon system, golf at championship golf courses nearby, soak up the sun and enjoy the warm waters of the ocean and find the kind of relaxation that only comes from listening to the surf and sound of the seagulls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are finally back in Columbus, OH but our minds are still at Hilton Head :). We really had a good time and the villa was beyond our expectations. All the unexpected surprises (air mattress and beach/pool toys) further enhanced our experience. Thank you so much and hopefully we will have another opportunity. God bless you!!

Tennis Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in 294 Turnberry last September. We loved it! We chose it as it was owned by the same people that owned the villa we chose in September of 2014. We had such a great time in that place that we chose the same owners. They were great to deal with , very prompt, courteous, and thorough in giving us instructions for driving and checking into the property. We were mostly there to play tennis at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, which we love. Of course, we enjoyed the beach and dining out and riding our rented bikes.

The villa was more than we needed for size but absolutely clean, tastefully decorated, well supplied, and comfortable. We loved it and it suited all our needs. We really appreciated having a fantastic kitchen for preparing breakfast and lunch and having our morning coffee!!!! Thank you so much for a fantastic experience. We will choose you again on our next visit to Hilton Head.

Great stay- we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a long Thanksgiving weekend at this condo! We had a great time.

The condo was comfortable, clean and quiet. It's is in a great location - a 1/2 mile walk or drive from the beach.

It had plenty of room for a family of four and our dog. The bedrooms were large and the kitchen, living and dining areas were spacious. The patio was also nice.

During our previous visit to HHI - we stayed at the nearby Omni Hotel. This condo is a much better value and option. We look forward to returning this summer!

Booking this unit was easy and the owners were super helpful and responsive!

Sept. beach visit

  • 1 of 5

Be very careful about renting from this manager and owner. We were very disappointed in the lack of maintenance of this villa. The carpeting was stained and very dirty throughout the unit. I called the cleaning person upon our arrival and she agreed, that the carpets certainly need to be cleaned and suggested that she could do nothing about the situation and I should contact the owner. I contacted the manager that we rented the unit from and she suggested that we call the owner. I suggested that since she was the manager, she might call the owner. Three light bulbs were not functioning with no replacements available, electric plugs in both bathrooms were not functioning, light in the shower not working (making it very dark when showering), smoke alarm in the hall hanging down by the wires, and an electric plug in one bedroom not functioning. I attempted to contact the owner and left messages. She did call back. The web site and the directions in the villa made it clear that the owner expected renters to "treat their second home with care." A previous renter left a note, as requested when problems were found, regarding the electric plugs and the light blubs. Obviously, no one took the time to correct the issues. I scrubbed the carpet with the minimal rug cleaner that was in the unit in order to try to prepare for our friends who were arriving for a stay with us. Our pet fee was returned after my request.

Owner's Response: This is very much a perception and motivation issue. After speaking to the previous 7808CC guests whose "Enjoyable Mini Vacation" was posted as a review on VRBO, we know that people have very different ways of perceiving a villa. Rosalie loved it. While Judy said she read from a note left by the previous guests telling us what was wrong, Rosalie says this is not accurate and that she left no note If repairs or fixes were needed, we had no knowledge of them or what Judy saw. We were staying in 7806 CC just across from Rosalie during her stay. If at any time during the stay she had noted a problem, we would have addressed it. We did have a number of friendly chats with Rosalie and her family but heard not a single negative comment. The owner of 7808 CC did call Judy back the same day she voice her complaints.. They discussed what could be done but Judy declined the offer to have the carpets cleaned during her short stay. Owners' response: We checked everything Judy complained about and NONE OF IT WAS TRUE! All the plugs in both bathrooms worked, the smoke detector was not hanging down and there are 6 wine glasses, not just 2 and there were ample extra light bulbs in the closet! And the rugs looked great, although we did have them cleaned!

Enjoyable mini vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed ourselves and felt so @ home in the condo. It was comfortable, spacious

and a perfect place for our family. We loved sitting on the deck every morning eating our breakfast. Especially my 3 grand daughters who loved seeing "Alex" everyday in the lagoon. They called the alligator Alex because that is a perfect name for either a boy or girl. We loved seeing also the turtles and Blue Heron in the lagoon. We all looked forward to seeing what would be next in the lagoon when we were on the deck. The condo was so convenient to the beach just a 15 min walk and we got our exercise in. We have no complaints and definitely will come back to HHI and will want to stay again @ Centre Court.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Centre Court. We come to HHI often but this was the best property we have stayed in, and not just because of the room for our family of four. It was also centrally located to island activities and the beach! Our two sons (15 and 10) enjoyed not having to share a bed and having a TV in their room. The back porch is a relaxing place in the morning to drink coffee and read. We enjoyed watching the young alligator that hung out on the edge of the canal.The beach is a short walk or car ride away. The bike rental facility and general store is a short walk away. The owners have done an outstanding job of keeping the property well maintained. And while it is right in the heart of all the activity it is incredibly quiet. We can't wait to get back next summer!!
