vacation rental description

Welcome to "Dolphin Lookout™," where you can actually see the dolphins as they swim by in the ocean. The spectacular view above is the actual view of the ocean, beach, and pool that you will see from both of your bedrooms, your living room, and your two balconies as a guest in our villa. We love this view.  In fact, the view is actually closer than the picture above shows it to be, since the picture is a panoramic view which makes things look further away.  We have been very fortunate to have guests share our villa over 300 days a year since 2007; ever since we started leasing it and managing it ourselves. We upgrade the villa each year so we and our guests can continue to enjoy it.  We just upgraded the kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and a new queen sleeper sofa in the living room.  Over the last two years we have added large screen HDTVs with DVDs in the living room and each of the two bedrroms.  We have also added special screen doors and new bar stool height chairs and table on the main balcony.  The keyless entry, other special touches, and special discounts for our guests with bicycle and boat rental companies make our villa so care free and enjoyable.

Many or our guests return year after year because of our villa's view, its inside decor, and for the detail and care for which we treat our guests. For more information about our home away from home, please read below OR for more information on our villa just contact me directly.

Here is some of that additional information: Our villa has direct access to the beach, which is less than a 3 minute walk away. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, almost 1250 square foot villa also includes a living room, dining area and kitchen with utility closet (full sized washer and dryer inside). Since 2006 we have completed over $50,000 in upgrades including new tile and carpet flooring, new paint, new very attractive furniture in both bedrooms and in the living room, and many upgrades in the kitchen such as new stainless steel appliances, new silverware, utencils, dishes/glasses and new full sized clothes washer and dryer.  Both bedroom suites have privacy with closet, shower and a terrace/balcony so you can enjoy the magnificent views. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and the 2nd bedroom has two queen sized beds. The master bedroom also has a Jacuzzi tub. The living room has a very comfortable queen sized sleeper sofa. For in-villa relaxation, each bedroom and the living room have an HDTV with 80+ channels and DVD.  There is free high speed wireless Internet throughout. There is also TOLL FREE CALLING within the US and Canada.  Villamare even has its own health club, FREE to guests, with indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, 7 cardio machines with TVs, universal gym and free-weights. Book early to assure availability.

Five things separate our villas from most other villas on Hilton Head Island:

1) We have contracted with a company that inspects your villa between visits to insure the villa is in top notch shape for your visit. The inspectors are not the cleaning service. They are a separate company that inspects your villa to make sure everything works properly and is clean for your arrival.  Our cleaning company normally just cleans upscale homes on the Island.  Because of our villas, they have agreed to clean our villas as well.

2) We have arranged discounts just for our guests with several bicycle and boat rental companies on the Island.

3) You automatically become a member of our Frequent Guest Club. This entitles you to the previous year's rates on ANY of our properties on every of your return visits to any of our villas, year after year. We own 3 villas, all with pool, beach and ocean views in Palmetto Dunes, HHI.  Membership starts immediately after your visit, so come back later this year or later years and get the previous year's rates.

4) A Welcome Packet that includes directions to the villa, numbers to call if you need anything during your stay, bicycle and boat rental companies with discounts for our guests, a list of over 60 Hilton Head restaurants, and more.

5) In addition to us being involved owners and available for your needs, we have a local company that will be available 24/7, just in case of emergencies during your visit. If something doesn't work properly during your stay, you call them, and they are there.

We pride ourselves in service to you. If you ever have any problems or questions, just call me on my personal cell phone, call our offices, or call our 24/7 number. You will receive information on this and more with the welcome packet you receive from us as soon as we receive your final payment for your stay.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are pricing other Villamare villas, please be aware that some villa owners show one of two "canned" pictures of views of the villa or the Villamare grounds. We advise you ask ALL Villamare owners, if the pictures on their website are actually the view from their villa and pictures of their villa. Many owners who own villas with limited views show these "canned" pictures as if they are the actual views from their villa. If a "canned" view is there or the blinds are closed in the inside the villa pictures, You may want to ask the owner about the pictures on their site. OUR views are the actual views from that villa.
