Captains Walk : Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Nestled in the heart of Hilton Head Island and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and Broad Creek on the west, Palmetto Dunes is unquestionably one of the islandís premier resorts and residential communities. The 2,000-acre ocean-front property is home to three championship golf courses, an award-winning tennis center, two world-class hotels, an array of sophisticated shops and restaurants and a full spectrum of lifestyle options that cater to both visitors and permanent residents. Happily, Captainís Walk is ideally situated to enjoy the best of Palmetto Dunes.

Palmetto Dunes is unlike any other place, largely because it seamlessly blends the most alluring aspects of other communities. Its three-mile beach is an endless source of activities, including sunbathing and sand-castle building in the summer and jogging, shell-collecting and enjoying the company of sandpipers and seagulls all year round. Living here, as one resident put it, ďis like being on a permanent vacation.Ē And thereís no shortage of living choices, among them Captainís Walk Villas.

Captainís Walk Villas are located on the beach, at the center of Palmetto Dunesí amenities. All 84 villas offer enviable ocean views from the master bedrooms, the living areas and the wide balconies. With two- and three-bedroom floor plans, spacious living areas, full kitchens and private balconies, they are perfect vacation homes.

Three multistory buildings form a semicircle around the pool area. Thereís a heated, ocean-front pool complete with a cabana, a large BERRYsunning deck, a childrenís pool and a private boardwalk to the beach. These luxurious villas offer all the comforts of home, but they also provide a home base to access the best of Hilton Head Island and the Lowcountry.

Hilton Head Island has a well-deserved reputation as a world-class destination, featuring golf, tennis, water sports, boating, fishing and biking. This semitropical island has more than 12 miles of wide, sandy beaches, salt marshes teeming with sea life and, if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the surf. There are nearly 300 restaurants on the Island, many featuring fresh local seafood, and enough night life, from clubs to theater and concerts, to satisfy all ages. For serious shoppers, there are many unique boutiques and two outlet malls nearby.

Hilton Head and its many activities might be the initial draw but Palmetto Dunes, where the greatest amenity is Nature herself, is the soul of the island.
