About Arnold Olender

Arnold & Gennie Olender are from Marietta, Georgia where they have resided over the past 30 years. Arnold is originally from upstate NY and Gennie is from New Orleans. We are pleased to share our special Hilton Head villa with you. Something special about our villa, it is set up as a vacation home for our family and not an income producing rental. You will notice the difference immediately.

Arnold Olender purchased this villa in 2012

Why Arnold Olender chose South Carolina

We purchased this property after spending over 25 years vacationing in Hilton Head. It was time to have our own place. Palmetto Dunes is an awesome destination with so much to do and enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

We really love the privacy of our location along with the villa being an end unit so no neighbors on one side and the other side is not a rental property. The area is very quiet and you can walk or ride your bike to almost everything you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gennie and Arnold,

We are back in PA and I wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful villa with us. We had a great time and everything worked out well.

We look forward to returning to Hilton Head and staying in your villa again in the future.

Outstanding Accomodations and Trip

  • 5 of 5

I go to Palmetto Dunes every year and usually stay at the OMNI. I booked this unit as we needed more space than the hotels offered as well as a kitchen and living room. The owner was so easy to work with and my check-in was seemless. I greatly appreciated the welcome packet down to how to operate the tv remote. The condo is pristine, comfortable and inviting. It is also a golfer's paradise as you can view the course from the back deck. It was well stocked with anything you might need during your stay. I loved the location as it was a beautiful, quick bike ride to the beach. It was one of our most enjoyable family vacations.

Beautiful villa in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

For our first time on Hilton Head Island we were very please with this villa. The location within Inverness Village was quiet while still close to everything and we found the location of Palmetto Dunes to be perfect since it is pretty much the center of the island. There was much to do both within Palmetto Dunes and out over the span of the island. The villa was just as it was pictured. Beautifully decorated with high end finishes and very well maintained. The homeowners were extremely friendly and easy to work with. We look forward to our next stay!

Lovely villa in busy Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just as described and pictured. It is very cute and updated nicely. We liked the quietness of Inverness Village. If you enjoy the Hilton Head area, you will enjoy this lovely villa. Hilton Head was a little busy and crowded for our family. I bet it is wonderful in the off season!

Owner's Response: Wyndy: Thanks for your kind words and we are pleased you and your family enjoyed our villa. You are correct as Hilton Head can be very busy during peak season, especially in the last few weeks before school starts. There are periods during the peak season that are not quite as busy and of course off-season has its benefits. Arnold & Gennie Olender

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

House is nicely decorated and in a gated property location with decent proximity to the beach. We drove to beach every day arriving in non-peak hours (early AM or late afternoon) and never had issues with beach access parking but could see parking being an issue late AM/Noonish. It would be a short bike ride or a nice walk. Golfing was exceptional (kids play free after 4pm) and the pool and tennis courts were in great shape and never over crowded.
