Shelter Cove Condo. Completely Renovated. Well-Appointed, Perfectly Situated Unit. This bright and airy Harbourside I condo offers AMAZING HARBOR VIEWS from its balcony. Shelter Cove is a Mediterranean-style village located on the harbor across the street from Palmetto Dunes. More than a dozen restaurants and boutiques line the beautifully landscaped marina, where you can walk to breakfast, lunch or dinner; enjoy live music; shop; rent a boat or a kayak or book a fishing or a sightseeing excursion. Or just kick back, enjoy your wine or coffee, throw fish or steaks on the grill, all-the-while enjoying the incredible sunset views amongst the bright flowers and host of private yachts.
Best of both worlds: Shelter Cove offers everything from fine dining to family-orientated water-front cafes and Mexican fare. Guests of this condo can enjoy authentic French cuisine from the Hilton Head Social Bakery, dining at Bistro 17, enjoy a white-tablecloth meal inside at Ella's Marina restaurant, or take advantage of great Happy Hour offerings at La Fontana Waterfront Grille or catch spectacular sunset dining views at outdoor tables at Scott's or the Ella's Marina Restaurant, all within sight of the villa. On Tuesday nights, the balcony is the place to be as Shelter Cove becomes the island's most popular destination with free live music and fireworks. But all back to peace and quiet by 10:00 p.m. Fun and relaxing at the same time: The best of both worlds.
Completely Renovated: The bright and airy condo has floor-to-ceiling windows; a newly renovated kitchen with granite, tumbled stone and European stainless-steel appliances; tile floors throughout the common area; newly carpeted bedrooms, and updated bathrooms. The master bedroom with a king-sized bed overlooks the harbor, while the front bedroom, with two full-sized beds, overlooks the pool area. The den has a huge 50' Panasonic flat-screen plasma TV with an advanced-component sound system that includes AppleTV and iPod/mp3 player hookups, so you can listen to your own music on this awesome system. The dining room table seats six, while the breakfast bar accommodates another three for meals. An outdoor high-top table on the covered balcony is the best location for sunset gatherings or early-morning coffee. Overall, the upscale decor has a beach theme using sunset colors, wicker, glass and a mix of light woods against newly painted neutral walls. Calm and relaxing feel, through and through.
So much to do...without a car: Nowhere on the island offers more to do, without driving anywhere! Enjoy the building's private pool, located within the gated grounds. And since Shelter Cove is part of Palmetto Dunes, guests have access to Palmetto Dunes for beach, golf (2 courses) and tennis (fees apply for golf & tennis). Guests also have use of the owner's four new 26' beach bikes for the duration of their stay. Beach access for Shelter Cove guests is a one-mile bike ride away along paths under 278 and through Palmetto Dunes, or it can be accessed by car or the Palmetto Dunes Beach Buggy. The Buggy is a free shuttle service available to Shelter Cove guests during season that takes you to the beach, the grocery store or the mall, so you don't have to step foot in your car from the time you arrive until you are ready to depart. Within five minute walk from the villa, you have access to dining, entertainment, canoeing, kayaking, dolphin cruise, sunset cruise, dinner cruise, charter fishing and much much more!
I bought this place because I love it here! I thought then--and still believe, that Shelter Cove is the best kept secret on the island. I live in Atlanta, but I'm constantly on the lookout for excuses to head back to Shelter Cove.

Great location on Shelter Cove Harbor. We enjoyed the Tuesday evening fireworks from the deck. We drove to the beach every day and were able to find a close parking space to the boardwalk. We saw the free Palmetto Dunes Shuttle but never had to use it since parking at the beach was easy!

We had a wonderful time in Hilton Head! Shelter Cove was charming and amazing! The view of the yachts from the condo balcony was spectacular! The balcony was also a perfect place from which to watch the fireworks on Tuesday night. The condo had everything we needed, from soft and comfy linens and towels to hairdryers and kitchen utensils. The TV was beyond state-of-the art, but the kids figured it out in a minute. The beach was pristeen and not overly crowded at all. As we had to lug beach chairs and gear, we drove to the beach each day... a short 5-10 minute drive (depending on the light), where we found lots of parking at the Disney Beach Club. The Shelter Cove Town Center (and Kroger) were a few minutes away and we were able to find everything we needed there, including tasty restaurant options. We are grateful to Mr. Ackerman for sharing his condo and for his multiple emails which explained check-in and out procedures and answered our questions even before we asked them, making our vacation stress- and worry-free! We are already planning next year's vacation!

vacation logistics is the search for: good times, finding new friends, relaxation, a scenic location - crammed together, in a compact time frame.
Hilton Head Island, Palmetto Dunes, Shelter Cove and Bryon’s condo - hit the mark for us.
It’s like being in a little European sea-side city with boats bobbing outside your balcony… bars /restaurants/retail close by. A bike trip to the beach, a car ride to multiple shopping venues and returning to a relaxing condo - compact and convenient to all of the above. Then reloading to do it again the next day.
Thanks Byron for allowing us to stay in your well appointed condo… we’ll be back!

This condo is in a great location for everything. The pool is right outside the door. The fireworks were straight off the balcony and beautiful. Everything we needed for the week was provided. The grill was very convenient to have available. All week and even with all the activity around for Tuesday night fireworks the unit was very quiet. The marina is beautiful and it was very nice to sit on the balcony and watch the people coming and going on their boats. We had family at the Disney resort across the bridge so this condo was the perfect location for a quick walk to see them at Disney's Hilton Head Resort. We had some questions about operating a couple items upon arrival and the next day. A phone call to Byron took care of it all, either remotely or walking me through the directions. We had excellent service from Byron. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The pool was a nice temperature. We did not use the bikes on this trip but if we return we will definitely do that. We also did not use the shuttle but that is a great amenity. The rental process was easy and Byron answered all my questions from the get go. The staff was coming in when we checked out and she was very professional and pleasant. Would definitely stay here in the future and recommend it.
