South Carolina Villa Rental Photos and Description

This charming villa is just steps from pool and golf course with a short 7 minute walk to beach. We recently renovated our villa with new tile flooring on the main level, new carpet upstairs, beautiful high-end granite countertops in kitchen, fresh paint throughout and all new bathrooms with granite countertops

The living room has a new flat-screen SMART TV with internet programming and a new DVD Player. The open concept dining area has seating for six and the fully-equipped kitchen has plenty of cabinet and counter space for cooking. Just step outside to a comfortable patio beneath the live oak trees with seating for six and a new gas grill.

The bedroom on the main level includes a Queen bed plus twin bunk beds and a new Flat Screen TV with DVD player. The upstairs bedroom has a King bed with a new Flat Screen Smart TV and DVD player. A sliding glass door invites you to the balcony with a great view of the beautiful pool area.

Both bedrooms offer newly renovated en suite bathrooms with tub/shower combination, new subway tile, plumbing and lighting fixtures.

About Don Kelly

We have been vacationing in Hilton Head for many years and visited around the globe, but our favorite vacation spot is still HH Island. In the summer of 2013 we bought this charming Villa in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. It has everything we wanted for our #1 vacation destination. We spent several weeks renovating it to our taste and comfort level. It is our hope that our guests will love the villa as well as this area as much as we do. Enjoy!

Don and Judy have completed their villa with all the conveniences of home. The beds are comfortable and the scene from the master bedroom of the swimming pool is very tranquil.

The general store and beach are a short walks.

Don and Judy definitely made our stay very welcoming and were available for any questions in a prompt fashion.

We are already planning our return for next November.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of the Water Oaks Villa in Palmetto Dunes, we rode our bikes to the beach everyday which was a quick 3-5 min. ride from condo. The owners were very helpful--plenty of towels, clean sheets, blankets, etc. and even ammentiies like toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, trash bags. The pool was just outside our villa and we enjoyed a quick dip after a day at the beach. We enjoyed a dolphin boat ride, a guided kayak tour on Broadcreek, and a day in Savannah--there's so much to do! Greg Russell at South Beach is our favorite entertainment--even with our kids being teens we still enjoyed his show! Fabulous restaurants--Skull Creek Boat House, Posideon (my fav!), Guiseppes, Sea Shack (not pretty but fabulous seafood) and of course the Salty Dog! I could have stayed another week easily. We will definitely recommend this villa to our friends and family and hopefully return again next year! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in your villa. It was everything as you described. Thanks so much for all your help in making it a great vacation. I have never dealt with any other owners that helped out and were as nice as you all were. Will highly recommend you to others if looking to go to Hilton Head. Thanks again for everything.

Winter Vacation-Six Weeks !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Villa on Hilton Head Island, weather on most days was pretty good, we did have a few cold days but were far better off than up on Long Island. I played around 15 Rounds of golf, went to many restaurants which were great ! Owners Don Kelly and his wife were very helpful . Don, I don't have your wifes name ! Check in was quick and simple, this was our second stay at the Villa and will be back again next year. P.S. My wife spent all my money while I was on the Golf course !! Ron M.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our stay! The owners are really nice and helpful and the check in process was super easy. Right next to the pool and maybe 3 blocks to the beach- close enough to walk though there was also a beach access with parking available. Would definitely recommend!

Car: not necessary

Palmetto Dunes has it all including perfect beaches and beautiful bike trails. There are three Championship Golf Courses on site including a Robert Trent Jones course. One hour per day of free tennis included. Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort offers outstanding Tennis Packages for players at all skill levels at one of the world's finest family resort destinations. One of our favorite events on the island is eating. We like to stroll down the beach to the Dunes House Beach Club. Ahhh... sitting outside eating fish tacos and watching the view - Life is Good. There are many other great restaurants in the resort and nearby at Shelter Cove. If you want to ride around the resort, call the free Dune Buggy (in season) to transport you to shops, dining, kayak rental and other activities.
