About the property

Welcome to Hickory Cove!

Enjoy all that Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head have to offer when you stay in our newly renovated villa. With 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a large deck and 2 balconies overlooking the lagoon there is more than enough room to spread out and take it all in.

The perfect location, close to everything Palmetto Dunes has to offer! The possibilities are endless: fishing, canoeing, kayaking or just enjoying the beautiful views right off your deck. Walk 5 minutes and you are on the beach, 2 more minutes down the beach and you are at the Dunes House beachfront restaurant. Just steps out the front door, you are at the community pool. Hop on a bike and you are riding on miles of bike paths. What about some tennis or golf? Walk 3 minutes from our villa to world class tennis or one of the three championship golf courses available in Palmetto Dunes! There are great restaurants and The General Store, all right here. Sit out on the newly expanded deck at night and listen to the ocean waves, a great way to end the day!

As you arrive at the villa you will notice the outside shower, perfect for cleaning off after those great days on the beach. Once inside you will see the extensive renovations started in the fall of 2012. There is new bamboo flooring throughout the first floor. All of the furniture was replaced in Nov. 2012. The kitchen is new with granite counters and stainless appliances. There is a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer off the kitchen. There are 4 televisions and 2 DVD players. The second floor has a loft area with a children’s game table. The second floor also received new carpeting in Nov. 2014.

Each of the 3 bedrooms also received new furniture with new mattresses and bedding in Nov. 2012. Each bedroom has its own bathroom that has been updated with a new vanity, mirror and lighting. The bedrooms on the second floor each have private balconies overlooking the lagoon.

About Megan

We have been traveling to Hilton Head with our 3 daughters for the past 17 years from the Jersey Shore and have fallen in love with the island! In 2012 we decided it was finally time for a place of our own. We love the location of Palmetto Dunes being central to everything. We have made some major renovations to our place and plan to keep up with our improvements. We look forward to hearing your input as we continue!

Wonderful Villa in Hickory Cove

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Hilton Head 19 times in 10 years. Once we found Hickory Cove 7 (HC7) and the owner Megan Gill about 4 years ago, we will not stay anywhere else. We tried around 6 other locations in Palmetto Dunes plantation, which all pale in comparison to HC7. The villa is in an ideal location, is quite nice and roomy, and is well-maintained. There is a beach access very close with about a 5 minute walk to the beach. Palmetto Dunes is in the central part of the island with the best overall access to everything. Megan is always easy to contact and is very responsive to concerns: the perfect owner. We plan our trips to Hilton Head based on availability of HC7. A couple years ago, HC7 was booked in our desired time frame, so we went to the Outer Banks, NC. That was a big mistake that we will not repeat. Kudos to Megan and HC7.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property and loved Hilton Head. Everything was very clean and updated. Plenty of room for everyone. The location was perfect- very close to the pool and a short walk to a beautiful, uncrowded beach. The owner had a lot of sand chairs , cart, boards and an umbrella stroller. It really helped not having to bring those items. I would highly recommend this property to anyone going to Hilton Head.

What an amazing vacation! I was so skeptical to vacation at Hilton Head, but will never vacation at another island! We arrived and had our bicycles waiting on us, and everyone immediately got excited. The condo was spectacular!! I couldn't think of a better place to enjoy a vacation with the family! My husband spend the majority of the time sitting on the back deck outside of the master suite. He fished right off the deck, and turned the tv in the master towards the deck, and stayed there the whole vacation!!

The beach on the other hand was literally a five minute brisk walk, and three minutes on the bike. The pool was a quick one minute walk, and always an available lounger! The kids loved the pool:) we biked around the island, really enjoyed the Little a General Store. Not to mention the owners closet had tones of each equipment.

I love to cook and a couldn't be more pleased with the stocked kitchen and all the applicances available for cooking. I felt right at home. Perfect summer vacation!!

We love this place! The condo is able to house all three generations of our family in comfort. The place is spotless and nicely decorated.We can sit on the deck and watch cranes and herons fishing for their meals on the banks of the lagoon. And the beach is a short walk away--a real boon when we have to carry all the necessities for small children and babies.

The owner is fantastic. She even came over to replace an empty fuel tank for the grill within minutes of receiving our call for help.

We have been taking the whole crew to Hilton Head for the past 5 years and we keep adding traditions: an early bird dinner at Alexander's, a walk around the harbor and dinner at San Miguel's, the lighthouse, the trolley, and so much more that we are beginning to have difficulty getting around to all of them in one week. All of us leave smiling and counting the weeks until our next visit.
