About Jan McKelvey
Michael and Janice McKelvey were married in 1977 and have two children: Michelle, 25; and Blake, 24. We live in Arlington,VA--Mike is a Williams graduate and has his Ph.D. from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. He is President of InventivHealth, a large company which administers clinical trials for new drugs. Janice is a Smith College alumna and had a career in Performing Arts Management before our two children were born. She is a Visitor Services Coordinator and Docent at the Library of Congress; and is also a Mansion Docent at Hillwood Museum and Gardens. We bought Palmetto-Light-By-The-Sea, 2512 Villamare, when our children were young, and our wonderful family times there over the years are priceless. We love the complex so much that we bought Palmetto-Sunrise-On-The-Ocean, 3525 Villamare, in December of 2016, hoping to spend more time on Hilton Head Island when Mike retires. Jan loves managing our Villamare properties--a new and cherished career in her life!
Jan McKelvey purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Jan McKelvey chose Hilton Head Island
Here is why we bought in Hilton Head and at Villamare: 1) We wanted a vibrant year-round community which would not feel like "Winter in a Summer Town" during the fall, winter and spring. Hilton Head has a 25,000+ year round population and is known for its good schools and municipal services. 2) We were very impressed with the Charles Frazier's vision of Hilton Head, which is why so many of the island's environment and ecosystems are preserved and cared for today. It is a pleasure to come to Hilton Head and not see large swaths of beautiful beach and marine forests decimated, as happens in other coastal communities. 3) Villamare is centrally located in Palmetto Dunes and on the island, and has a gorgeous oceanfront orientation. 4) Palmetto-Sunrise-On-The-Ocean has a premiere view of the ocean and beach of Hilton Head Island. The views don't get much better, if at all, from any villa on the island. We are proud to offer this experience to our guests.
What makes this Condo unique
Palmetto-Sunrise-On-The-Ocean is on the top (5th) floor. We have unsurpassed views of the beach and the ocean because we are so high up; in addition, we have more privacy than most units and very little, if any, noise. When this unit came on the market, Mike turned to Janice and said, "We are doing this. The opportunity to own this unit is WAY too good to pass up."

Best Place on Earth!!
This is our 2nd time at this amazing condo and we will be back...amazing!!
This was a wonderful place to stay! The condo is well equipped, clean, and a perfect location with a million dollar view! We would highly recommend it!!
We had a wonderful vacation thanks in part to this beautiful condo. Excellent location. Impeccable attention to detail. Owner was very responsive. We would love to stay in this unit again.
This place is a win! The condo was nicely remodeled and the view is breathtaking. Even with colder temperatures, you can sit inside or bundled up on the balcony to watch the waves. The resort has a lot of amenities and convenient to the whole island.
Jan is very responsive and easy to work with. The owners also provided daily tennis or pickleball court time. In addition, the condo has pretty much all kitchen items needed to cook meals, but also a lot of great restaurants within a short drive or bikeride.
It definitely was a nice, relaxing family vacation with amazing views. I would consider staying there again if revisiting the island!
We have rented a few condos on the beach before. This condo was the nicest out of all of them. It was recently remodeled, and it is amazing! Gorgeous views of the ocean. The beach is just a short walk, and it is magnificent. When you get tired of the beach, the pool and hot tub await. On our stay we ate at a few great restaurants on Hilton Head: Dockside, Alexander’s, but The Jazz Corner was our favorite. Make sure you call well in advance for reservations. We also golfed at The National. It was a really nice course. Savannah was just a quick drive, so we spent a day there too. Overall, the entire vacation was simply phenomenal. It’s too bad it is such a long drive from the Midwest.
Beauty on the inside; beauty on the outside!
Have you ever hesitated to write a great review because you don’t really want other people to know what you discovered?!! But I must. There are few vacation rentals in my personal experience that warrant the maximum number of stars. This rental meets that bar. The expanse of blue water meeting the sky is the jaw-dropping view on entering this space - like a wall mural spanning the three rooms facing the beach. Keep your sunglasses on your bedside table if you love a sunrise because you will have a front row view - it will lift your soul. As an amateur home designer, Jan’s renovation from stem to stern checks all my boxes. A space so carefully and tastefully curated. A kitchen so delightful, we barely visited a restaurant the entire month we stayed. Bedrooms with great closets and spacious bathrooms you’ll be proud to offer visiting guests. Cookware galore - steam your veggies, roast a turkey, bake to your heart’s content; a wine fridge to boot. Gourmet cooks - you will smile. And while I understand the practicality of leather couches; Jan offers the designer’s delight - cloth furniture in shades of blue. I curled up with a book when I could bear to take my eyes off the ocean. We watched dolphins from our window. What more is there?
Hilton Head Island is one of the premium vacation destinations in the United States and also it attracts visitors from around the world for its beaches, gorgeous semi-tropical forests, fabulous golf-courses, and unparalleled natural beauty.
