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.

Appreciated the High Quality of all Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. We appreciated the quality of all the things in the house. I applaud the renovations - all appliances, electronics, and furnishings were top notch, clean, and well maintained. The electronic door entry was very convenient saving us from accidentally leaving the keys in the house and locking ourselves out (which happened at our next travel stop). The kitchen with all its small amenities was a pleasure. If I may suggest better potholders and a woodblock of chef knives...those were the only items I felt I was lacking. The location was great also...we used Disney's beach access everyday. The central location in Palmetto Dunes and on Hilton Head Island was ideal. It did not take long to get anywhere either by walking, biking, or driving. I would return again and would highly recommend it. Mr. Olender was responsive to all our questions and needs. Thank you for everything.

Quiet location with plenty of space to spread out

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids: 14, 11, and 9) stayed here the week after 4th of July. We loved our vacation villa and our kids want to return every year. The villa suited our needs perfectly. My husband and I stayed in the downstairs bedroom with the king configuration. It allowed us to get up early, drink coffee, make breakfast and enjoy the deck while the kids slept in upstairs away from the noise. The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer were a life saver, the wi-fi and cable kept us entertained, the AC is strong, the furniture is comfortable, and most of all the unit is very clean. We appreciated how nicely the unit has been updated: new sidewalks and deck, beautiful kitchen and clean/new carpet - it felt like vacation. Finally, the owner was very responsive to all our needs.

Location - you are about a mile from the beach. It is walkable, we did that once then rented bikes for the week (about $200 including a trailer). We loved riding to the beach and through the golf course (after 7:00 pm). The beach is great even when busy - which is was during our visit. We also enjoyed the pool and tennis courts which are very close to the unit.

Also, if you are into finding local wildlife, we found an alligator in the water surrounding "bird island" on the golf course. My kids were thrilled.

This is a clean, updated unit that we highly recommend.

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!
