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!

Amazing January in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful January vacation in Hilton Head. The Kelly’s not only provided a great “home away from home”, but amazing weather to go along with it. Just a short walk to the beach had us out walking almost every day and with the Dunes House open right on the beach it gave us a place to go for a snack and beverage when needed. Got in lots of bike riding on the beach and on the paths; Shelter Cove was an easy ride with places to visit. The golf course, Big Jim’s and the General store are also nearby and a short walk/ride.

The villa was fresh, clean and well outfitted and met our every need. This was truly a great find and a place to look forward to in the future.

great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We hadn't been to Hilton Head in many years and wanted to go back with relatives. Four of us looked on-line for a place that would work for us. After reviewing many that were available, we decided on Palmatto Dunes and found this rental. It looked bright, had a private outdoor patio and had beach access, the main criteria we were looking for.

Those who have rented on-line know that you don't always get what you think you will. I'm happy to say the we were not disappointed with our choice. It actually exceeded our expectations, everything was fresh and clean and comfortable. We liked the two story layout that provided a nice privacy. We didn't expect to have a pool right outside of our patio. We were so impressed with Palmetto Dunes overall and didn't expect such a lush, beautiful, well appointed location. We could have spent our entire time within the location and have everything we needed, but did do some of the usual tourist activity.

Our only issue, was the walk to the beach for one in our party. It was only about 1/2 mile, but with the heat and a heart condition it was not happening. We were able to drive to a location with parking and with only a short walk to the beach that worked well for all of us.

I have used this rental service (VRBO) before, but never experienced the personal attention of an owner as I did with this rental. He was available and proactive and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had all our questions answered.

If you're heading to Hilton Head, you won't be disappointed if you decide to use this rental.

Excellent Villa Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Location!! Fully Equipped, updated, comfortable beds, clean and well-maintained. Everything was in working order. Pool right outside villa. Beach is close plus has some parking if you choose to drive there. Owners were very helpful and courteous. Definitely would want to spend another vacation at the Kelly's villa! Alexander's Restaurant in Palmetto Dunes was our favorite. Also ate at Big Jim's for breakfast and lunch. Crazy Crab & The Old Oyster Factory were also great. Truly a "HOME" away from "HOME"!!

Perfect little gem

  • 5 of 5

I'm rather conflicted... I want to share how wonderful this villa is, but am worried it will become too popular and we won't be able to come back!

This was our family's 10th visit to HHI and we finally found our perfect little paradise. The villa is newly updated, pristine clean, comfy beds... all the comforts of home. But better than our home, a pool as our backyard and the ocean just a 5 minute walk away.

To the Kelly Family - we will be back... Thank you so much for making your little Paradise, part of my family's Paradise!

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.
