About Gina Smeal

Steve and I (Gina) have been vacationing on HHI together for almost 20 years. My love for the low country Island began at the young age of 8. Each year my immediate and extended family would make the 16 hour trip from Ohio to enjoy our week on the beach and each year we would dream of one day owning our own home on the Island.

We have continued our tradition of gathering at the beach and now our children are beginning to make their own Hilton Head memories. We now live just outside of Atlanta, making it easy to return often. We are proud to call Hilton Head our second home and grateful for the opportunity to spend much more time in Paradise!

Gina Smeal purchased this villa in 2013

Why Gina Smeal chose Hilton Head Island

As you can imagine, in our many years of visiting the Island, we have stayed in a variety of homes. Yet, there is only one plantation that stands out in our mind. Maybe it’s the beautiful landscape, the 3 miles of private beach, the 3 world class golf courses, or the conveniences of the General Store and Palmetto Dunes Outfitters. For these reasons and more, Palmetto Dunes is home to our family. From the moment we walked into our St Andrews home, we knew it was the place for us. We fell in love with its private location and beautiful views. The comfortable atmosphere lured us in, and we instantly began turning it into the coastal home we always dreamed of.

What makes this villa unique

Discover Paradise! Serving as our second home, this exceptionally decorated private retreat is perfect to relax and just get away. Centrally located and near many activities, it's easy to find and makes exploring the Island easy. You will not find another unit with this type of upscale décor and furnishings. Enjoy the comfortable beds, free high speed turbo internet, close to 200 HD TV channels, brand new appliances including washer/dryer, and well equipped kitchen. It is peaceful and private in the back of the complex, overlooking the 14th hole of the Fazio Golf Course. Perfect for families, romantic getaways, or golf trips.

Great location and nice spacious unit

  • 4 of 5

There are many things to like about this vacation rental. It has a king sized bed, two bathrooms, good kitchen, new appliances, open floor plan, fast internet, nice pool and clubhouse area, and washer and dryer. The kitchen was stocked pretty well and there were a lot of spices. The best feature is it’s location. Being in Palmetto Dunes gives you access to the beach parking and some great restaurants. The view of the golf course is wonderful, and we spent a lot of time sitting on the deck in the evening and morning. We love to bike and were able to put our folding bikes in the entry area out of the rain. You can bike on trails from the rental to just about anyplace on Hilton Head. It was very spacious for the two of us. The pictures on VRBO are pretty true, with the exception of a few scratches and dings here and there. There are two single beds up the spiral staircase, but it seemed that it was pretty warm up there even when the A/C was running with the ceiling fan on in the loft. The warmest it was when we were there (mid October) was the low 80’s. This is very close to a 5 star place to stay, but there were a few minor things that kept us from giving that rating. No ceiling fan in the master bedroom, there are small fans in the closet but they were loud. We felt that a nice ceiling fan would go a long ways to getting rid of the stuffiness in the room even with the A/C on. The towels are pretty minimal and the king sized bed was a bit soft for our preference. The carpeting in the master bedroom is showing it’s age and could use replacing. It seems that the owners are working on updating the unit and the work so far is nicely done. Communications with the owners was very good and prompt when we had a question on the operation of the fan in the main room. We would consider staying here again, and even checked for availability in a return trip in January/February but it is booked solid.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this beach home! It was very clean and perfect for our little family! The condo had everything we could possibly need. It was well updated. Very close to everything! The owners were very quick to respond to our questions. They were also very understanding when we had to transfer our reservations to another summer due to the death of my father. Thank you for a great vacation!

Such a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property with an incredible view of the golf course! The villa was extremely clean and tidy and only a very short ride to the beach. Our kids loved the loft and it was a very functional space for our family. We had breakfast every morning on the outside patio as it was just so gorgeous. The beach that is closest to the villa is just perfect. We planned to check out a couple other beaches but the beach access we had was just so great there was no reason to drive anywhere else. Would highly recommend this villa!

The property was clean and well maintained. it had all the requisite amenities that you would want.

  • 5 of 5

The property provided us with a relaxing and peaceful environment. The back porch overlooking the golf course was a surprisingly peaceful and relaxing space for morning coffee or drinks in the afternoon. The pool was a quiet oasis with special views of the lagoon, including turtles, birds, and a small alligator! A five minute drive to the beach and endless bicycle paths gave us great opportunities for fun.
