About Dale & Susan Huffman
My husband Dale and I have 5 children and have been married for 37 years. Dale's father had the opportunity to purchase land in HHI before it had become developed. He passed on the opportunity since "it was nothing but marshland". We couldn't help but smile at his Dad's remark when we purchased this villa. Dale's mother, Louise, took pride in her South Carolina camellias, and we were delighted to add two varieties by our back deck that she enjoyed. We currently live in Indiana, but are delighted to be part of SC again. I am from Tacoma, WA and enoy the beauty of HHI as much as the Pacific Northwest.
Why Dale & Susan Huffman chose Hilton Head Island
We were drawn to the beautiful, newer building with decks and wrap-around stairs in the Port Royal Plantation area. Our villa had everything we wanted like tray ceilings, an open concept living area, comfortable and well-supplied kitchen, and huge bathrooms. It allowed us to be close to many amenities including a 5-10 minute walk to the ocean, bike paths, golf courses, and TWO swimming pools. It feels so private, but is actually close to everything.
What makes this Villa unique
We delight in making your stay comfortable, and we enjoy answering any questions or concerns you may have. We give you our personal phone numbers and are quick to respond and take care of anything that might arise. We will send you a multiple-page welcome letter with villa information including maps and access codes, as well as general information on places to visit, and even how to get groceries on-line so they are ready for pick-up on the way to the villa. Once you arrive, our alligator table always holds a special welcome to our guests. Our place is so convenient. It so easy to walk to the beach for the sunset, or go for a quick jog along the white sand that stretches for miles. The winding bike paths can take you all over the island, and I love that bike rental companies deliver/pick-up the bike at the tree by the front door. You can relax in the comfortable and gorgeous villa with a brand new HVAC system; sleep in comfy, King pillow-top beds; utilize the computer desk with multiple plugs for your electronics devices, accessing the free internet, Wifi and phone; or just enjoy the refreshing air on the deck that overlook "Louise's camellias" . You might enjoy the fresh, new interior decorations, play with some of the games and puzzles, watch the big screen TV, create masterpieces in coloring books for adults using artist-quality pencils, use the community hot tub, swim in one of two pools, or take the beach wagon with beach supplies to the ocean. But most of all, it provides the perfect place to come and enjoy life together with friends and family.

Great place to relax and have fun.
It was a great place to stay and the owners fantastic to work with.
We had a great stay at this property in Hilton Head. Owners were extremely response to any questions. They genuinely wanted us to have a great week. If we go back, we would definitely stay in the same place all over again.
Perfect villa close to the beach
This place was everything we had hoped for. Each couple had our own (large) bathroom to ourselves. There was an open kitchen and living area to sit with friends that we loved. Everything was clean and organized. Tons of kitchen items to use. Everything you could possibly need for the beach is provided, including beach towels. Susan was so easy to get in contact with. She was very quick on the text messages. One of our best VRBO experiences. Would gladly stay here again!!
Good family vacation
Spent a week with my wife and our 4 children. It was a great week. Had plenty of room with the 2 king beds and couch sleeper. Condo was in a neat location. Mostly shaded and saw a lot of wildlife including 2 alligators in the fenced off pond. My crew had a great time in the 2 pools. The beach is a bit of a walk, but we rented bikes. Just a quick bike ride and we were there. I usually pushed the wagon with our stuff. The owners provided nice beach chairs. We also used their little blow up pool for our toddler to keep him out of the sand. We had a great time in Hilton Head!
Wonderful Family Vacation
Rental was clean, comfortable and the perfect location on Hilton Head Island. It was within easy walking distance to the beach, park and pools. The unit was stocked with all of the amenities of home i.e., pots/pans, dishes, coffee pot, washer/dryer, pack and play yard, beach chairs, beach wagon, etc. The bike/walking trails on the island were awesome! The owners were very responsive and great to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation and hope to return again in the near future.
Farther from the beach than expected
The condo was great... everything there one needs , especially in the kitchen. We used the pull cart to go the beach daily but had our own chairs with us. We thought the beach was farther away than expected. It would’ve been nice to drive there had we had a parking pass. There are spaces to park with meters but they only take quarters and there are no change machines... so have a pocket full if that’s your plan.The beds are very comfortable but our bedding was a problem... the bottom sheet wouldn’t stay on the mattress... very frustrating! The owner says the back porch has a view of the tennis courts and is a nice place for morning coffee... the tennis courts are dilapidated and the the grass and weeds are overgrown all around it . Not as pleasant to be out there as it was made to sound. We didn’t use the back porch for this reason.
All in all, tho, we liked the condo itself. The proximity on the island was good... we had never stayed that far down on 278... but a couple of our fav restaurants were very near by and it’s a quick drive to the awesome Kroger at Shelter Cove.
If you don’t mind a good little walk to the beach.... then you should be very happy at this condo.
We are pleased that the condo was great, but are concerned that you had unresolved issues. The parking pass for the beach is a car sticker that is only issued to the owner’s vehicle, so it was not a solution for you. The quartered meters are relatively new and we didn’t know guests could use them. We will be sure to tell our future guests about them. Thank you for bringing that to our attention.
The land for Port Royal Tennis and Raquet Club behind us was sold and is going through redevelopment, so we are experiencing growing pains. We have contacted Hilton Head about the overgrowth.
We wish you could have mentioned the sheets during your visit, since that would have been an easy fix to get a different set.
We desire to find solutions if any issue comes up, which is why we give our personal mobile numbers. We want your total experience to be delightful.
