Description of the Hilton Head vacation villa rental
Sun Drenched, Lagoon Front, renovated just a 5 minute walk to beach, tennis or golf!

Welcome to Hickory Cove!
Enjoy all that Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head have to offer when you stay in our 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 bamboo flooring throughout the first floor. All of the furniture was replaced in Nov. 2012. The kitchen has 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.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

HHI 2016
We had an awesome week in Hickory Cove Villa #7. Although we arrived in town along with Tropical Storm Bonnie, Megan emailed me head of time of instructions of what to do if we encountered storm related issues. Thankfully, we only had 1 1/2 days of rain, and perfect weather remainder of week. This villa is clean and well appointed, with plenty of space for adults and kids. The location is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed use of the large patio with view of the lagoon. My husband loved the high quality gas grill, which was perfect for grilling our seafood from Barnacle Bills. The community was quiet with easy access to pool, General Store, beach access, and bike trails. Megan was great to work with and we look forward to booking for HHI 2017.

Lovely nestled in a coastal forest
We were very comfortable and safe with our 11 guest. I love that there were 4 bathrooms and a washer and dryer. We walked or rode the "dunes buggy" everywhere. The villa is located in a shady wooded area that was a perfect compliment to the hot sunny beach. We enjoyed the beach, dinning, shopping and running while there. I would definitely choose this location again.

Our favorite HHI stay
What a treat it was to stay at this clean and bright villa. The location was excellent....just minutes to the beach (crossing one street) and minutes to the general store for ice cream and treats. We loved the LARGE size. It was more than enough for our family of 6 and hope to return with grandparents in the Fall! An unexpected feature was the back patio with a full view of the lagoon and a gas grill off of the kitchen. It was well furnished and we had everything we needed to cook several meals at home. The owners did offer use of their storage locker....such a kind gesture. We took advantage of the beach cart and toys. Book this villa without hesitation. It is a gem and Megan is lovely to work with!

Jan. 25th to Jan 30th at Palmetto Dunes.
We stayed with another couple for five days in one of the most beautiful villas we've ever stayed in, either here in the US or in Europe. The villa was spacious, clean, and beautifully furnished. The decor throughout was very tasteful, and the three bedrooms/baths provided each guest with sufficient privacy. The common area was very attractive and contained everything we needed for comfortable visiting, reading, watching TV and preparing meals. The decks were an added bonus and provided extra space for relaxing. The villa is a great place for seniors like ourselves or for families with young or teenage children. We should mention the cove below the decks where couples glided by in kayaks. Oh and golf course clubhouse is a 10 minute walk.

January getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hickory Cove. The villa was very clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked. We especially enjoyed the large deck with the lush vegetation and view of the lagoon. The location was convenient to stores, restaurants and attractions. We certainly would go there again. The owners were wonderful to deal with

Great Week in Palmetto Dunes
My family rented this villa for the Christmas break and could not have been happier with our choice. From the first interaction, it was great working with Megan. She responded to all inquiries promptly and accommodated some last minute changes with graciousness. As for the villa itself, it is exactly as represented - updated, well furnished, and well maintained. The location is ideal - close to the beach, the general store, bike rentals, and the main gate of Palmetto Dunes, making coming and going that much easier! We would happily recommend this villa and would gladly stay here again!

Great Getaway
I went Palmetto Dunes for a convention at the Marriott. They had a block of rooms for convention goers for a discounted rate. I looked online and found this condo just a 5 minute walk to the Marriott with a rate that was competitive with the block rate. This allowed me to take some family members along for a vacation. The condo was clean and comfortable with large BR's and private baths. 5 minute walk to the beach. Convenient to restaurants and shopping. This was my first by owner rental. It was easy and the owners were great to work with. I highly recommend staying here.

Great stay!
We stayed in this villa and loved it! It is beautifully decorated, very clean, and only a five min walk to the beach and general store. There was ample space and very large bedrooms. Our kids loved the extra family-friendly touches ? DVDs, games, beach toys, etc. We hope to stay here again sometime!

Lagoon Perfection
The location of this villa is perfect. Mid-island not too far into Palmetto Dunes it's a short 5 minute walk to the beach, with a nice short cut to the general store and tennis courts and golf. The large private deck on the lagoon was great for relaxing or having morning coffee watching the beautiful birds. The inside was super clean and just as pictured. The bedrooms were very large and there was a great loft area for the kids to play games and hang out for some down time. I'll be back!!

Fantastic will rent again
Our first Thanksgiving away from home and our girls loved it. Location was perfect for tennis, beach, biking, golf and walking to general store or outfitters. The condo is beautiful and very well laid out. We enjoyed the view of lagoon from all rooms and deck. We rented bikes and the front porch was large enough to store them when it rained. The owner is super helpful and responds to questions quickly. I would highly recommend this property and when we travel back to Hilton Head we will rent again.

Liked it so much we stayed for six weeks
We have been staying here for 26 years. We think of it as a second home. This year, we reserved the entire month of September and two weeks in October. The best thing is the location. It is in a corner with an L-shaped deck that looks out over the lagoon. It feels very private. The deck is shaded by several trees, so it remains cool even on very hot days. Inside, the condo is spacious and clean. The new owner renovated two years ago, with special attention to the kitchen: new counter tops, refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. The three bedrooms are large and each has its own bathroom. A fourth bathroom and shower is off the living room. An outside closet has beach chairs and a nice little cart to transport your beach paraphernalia. Megan responds quickly to any questions or concerns. We forgot a few items at the condo and Megan arranged for the cleaning crew to hold them for us. Finally, it really is a five-to-ten-minute walk to the beach, the Marriott, the convenience store, the Robert Trent Jones golf course, bike rental, canoe/kayak rental, tennis courts, and Alexander's restaurant. In about ten minutes, you can drive to a huge new Kroger superstore. A recommendation: if you like to walk, take a hike to Coco's On The Beach, a nice little beach bar just north of Palmetto Dunes. Walk north on the beach for about a mile to Coco's. Then, come back along Mooring Buoy and look at the beautiful houses.

Tennis ladies
Great condo-everyone was happy with this place. Sitting on 1 of the 3 decks, drinking coffee in the morning or wine in the evening, were fantastic ways to start or end the day. We walked to the Palmetto Dunes tennis courts we were so close. Very easy owner to work with; very responsive. Condo stocked with everything we needed.

Awesome location! Would go back again and again!
This was our first-ever trip to Hilton Head and we could not have had a better experience!! We will be back for sure! Palmetto Dunes is situated perfectly on the island, it was just a few minutes to everything you would want to do. Shelter Cove and the all important Kroger grocery store were located just outside the Palmetto Dunes gates. The villa is exactly as it appeared in the listing. There were four adults and two kids and we had more than enough space, the full kitchen, washer and dryer and all the amenities made it so easy...I don't think we'll ever use a hotel again. The Villa is situated perfectly on a lagoon with great views and an extremely relaxing atmosphere. Just walk over the lagoon bridge and your right at a beach access point. The walk is literally 5 minutes, if that. If you go out of the villa to your left you can cut through right to the General Store, Robert Trent Jones Golf Course and the across the street is the Outfitters rental facility for bikes, kayaks, and more. I literally grabbed my golf clubs and just walked over to the course for my tee time. Megan was very responsive and really easy to work with. They even leave beach chairs, a big basket of beach toys, umbrellas, and more for you to use. It made a vacation with two small kids effortless! I could write a novel but I'll just say that if you are looking for a beautiful villa with the perfect location to everything you need on Hilton Head then look no further. ...I almost hate to write this because I don't want all the dates to fill up for next year :)

Beautiful Villa
My large family of 12 stayed here for the week and loved it! Thank you to Megan for being so wonderful and for being so easy to work with. We loved the large rooms and the deck, where we all seemed to gather each evening. We found the villa to be very comfortable and clean, and had a very relaxing vacation. The walk to the beach and pool are also a plus! Thank you Megan!

Hickory Cove
Very happy with this unit. Offers a nice homey touch and the owner allows use of beach items from the owner's closet. She was exceptionally prompt with her communications and with taking care of any small items that needed attention - and I stress small items, nothing major at all. I would rent from her any time with confidence. Thank you!

We have stayed in three different units on Hilton Head and this one was by far the best. Spacious, airy, tastefully decorated, and clean, the most important criteria. Megan provided a wealth of information before we arrived, which helped us discover some new activities. Only a five minute walk to the beach was also a plus. I highly recommend this gem of a villa.

Beautiful Villa!!
What else can I say?? The villa presented itself exactly as the pictures portray. The owners' personal touches are evident! The villa lived very comfortably and the bedrooms are extremely large. Great location, literally less than 5 min walk to the beach, with very easy access. The lagoon view was beautiful--we spent a lot of time on the deck! And Megan was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. She was very responsive to both phone calls and e-mail. Thank you for sharing your villa with our family!!

Wonderful Villa and Great Owner!
We have stayed in four different Hickory Cove villas. Hickory Cove 7 is by far the best. It is beautiful inside and all features are well-maintained. It is only a five minute walk to the beach. We met the owner Megan in person before we rented and she works hard at ensuring that the place is tip-top. Also, she is easy to contact either answering the phone or returning calls promptly.

Beautiful, updated villa in great location
The owner of the unit, Megan, was a joy to work with. She was very responsive to all of our questions. The villa is lovely and just as it appears in all of the photos. We enjoyed having a gas grill and a well stocked kitchens for the evenings we ate dinner in. The second and third bedrooms upstairs are huge! Great for families or kids. The unit is a less than 5 minute walk away from the tennis center and the beach. The beach access is in a residential area so the beach is much less crowded than near the oceanfront condo complexes.

Hickory Cove Villa
Our party of 6 enjoyed our stay here so much that we extended our original rental agreement! The condo was in a beautiful and convenient location to the beach and shopping. We brought our own kayaks and were able to put our boats right in the lagoon from the back yard area. We all enjoyed the layout of the condo, which was accurately described online. Everything was clean and in working order. Very comfortable! The owner was quick to respond to our inquires and easy to work with. We would definitely return to this property! Great neighborhood!

Great Villa ... Great Location
My family and I recently stayed at this beautifully remodeled villa. The villa was even better than pictured (clean, well furnished, and newly remodeled). The lagoon front location was ideal for fishing and kayaking and the beach was a short 5 minute walk away. The owners were great to work with and easily accessible for questions during the rental week. I would absolutely recommend this property to others and am planning to be a return renter.

Wonderful Hilton Head Vacation!!!
The Villa was the best accommodation we have had at Hilton Head. It was convenient to everything. A five minute walk to the beach down a nice paved beach access, beautiful bike paths throughout Palmetto Dunes and an easy bike ride to Shelter Cove. The Villa itself was beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean. We really enjoyed the shady deck overlooking the lagoon. The owner was very easy to work with for reservations. I hope we can stay here again on our next visit to Hilton Head.

Hickory Cove Haven
We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully decorated and comfortable home in Hickory Cove. The unit is as it appears in the photos or better. We enjoyed many evenings out on the large deck and cooked dinner on the gas grill. The beach chairs and towels were a surprise added bonus - great for our short walk to the beach! The kitchen was well stocked with nice appliances and granite counter tops contrary to many other places we've stayed. The book in the unit with information and places to go was a nice touch, and communication from owners was great. We enjoyed time at the beach, The Sandbox Childrens Museum, and fish tacos and margaritas up at The Dunes House. We definitely plan to stay here again!

Lagoon Front Beauty
This is a beautiful place. We loved every minute of staying here on our spring break in April. The owners are first class, and are always available. There was plenty of room and the decor is gorgeous. We loved being on the lagoon so we could hop in our kayaks and go. We even caught a flounder in our net and had it for dinner. It was great to wake up and drink my coffee on the deck and hear nothing but the birds chirping and the fish jumping in the lagoon. The beach was less than 5 minutes away. We really enjoyed it so much!!!

Would Definitely Stay In This Villa Again
This was a great find. The pictures and write up were right on. The Villa was clean, well maintained, great location and the owner was great. We have stayed in several Villas in Palmetto Dunes and this was our favorite. There were only two of us but we could see that it would also be great for large families. It was nice that the owners stock it with plenty of supplies so you don't have to go shopping for such things as coffee filters, laundry soap, bathroom supplies, etc. Will definitely return.
