Villa la Vie for calm, stylish island comfort.

The Property:

Villa la Vie is a two-story condo and has 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a sparkling pool in the center of a lush courtyard. It is on the second and third floors of the complex (more about which see below) and is located in Hilton Head's sweet spot. Furnished in designer style, Villa la Vie is the perfect place to rest, relax, and restore in luxe Island comfort.

The Bedrooms:

The King bedroom has (as you might expect) a King bed, a 55" HD smart TV for streaming, and a full en suite bath called the Green Tile bath (you'll see why). And Yves Delorme linens for the bed.

The Peacock bedroom (named for its beautiful designer wallpaper accent wall) has two full-sized beds, a 50" HD smart TV for streaming with a full en suite bath cleverly called the White Tile bathroom - but its most striking feature may be what I like to call the Mad Max Mirror (let me know if you agree with the name).

Both bedrooms have dressers with ample drawers for storage and walk-in closets, complete with HANGERS! (Don't you just hate it when you get to your vacation rental and there aren't enough hangers for your clothes?)


Downstairs, you'll find a full kitchen with all the amenities, including a drip coffee maker AND a Nespresso machine.

A full-sized drop-in range for cooking sits across from the cutest refrigerator/freezer you ever saw. There is a countertop nugget ice maker for crunchy, refreshing nugget ice.

Open shelving in the kitchen allows you to see the plates, dishes, cups, and glasses - both porcelain and unbreakable- depending upon your preference - without having to hunt through closed cupboards. A dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, and toaster round out the kitchen equipment.

A full-sized washer and dryer sit just off the kitchen with laundry detergent pods provided.


Moving from the kitchen, you'll pass through the dining area with comfortable seating for six around the reclaimed wood dining table. Shelving with books and some games (backgammon and mah jong) complemented by Asian and Delft-inspired blue and white porcelain line the wall in the dining area.


The living area was designed for comfort and boasts a Pottery Barn down-cushion sofa, two upholstered swivel chairs flanking the 65" HD smart (really quite impressively intelligent) TV, and two pretty poufs (you'll see).

A large sliding glass door (with the reliable technology of a stick-in-the-track locking system) provides a view of the lush, lovely courtyard and pool and access to the small balcony with a spiral staircase so that you can experience the beautiful courtyard and refreshing pool for yourself.

The only way (well, there is a secret way that you'll learn if you book) to access the Surf Court courtyard is through one of the units, preferably Villa la Vie. It is not open to the public.

The Complex:

Villa la Vie is in the Surf Court condominium complex, "second row" to the beach with access directly across South Forest Beach Drive.

It's a short, very pleasant 5-minute stroll to one of the country's best beaches with fine, soft, silky sand and spectacular sunrises. A 10-minute walk up South Forest Beach brings you to Coligny Beach Park with its adjacent shopping and dining opportunities. Around the corner on Nassau Street, you'll find Hilton Head's newest wonder, Lowcountry Celebration Park (the Adventure Ship is something to see), also right next to restaurants and shopping.

The Experience:

Savor your morning coffee (from either the drip maker OR the Nespresso) overlooking the courtyard and pool. Then, take a walk by the waves, letting the water kiss your feet and gently wash away your stress, just like it does your footprints. This is luxe Island life. This is what a vacation is all about.

Beach towels and a beach cart are provided for your use during your stay at Villa la Vie. If you want to stroll on the beach after dark from May to October, red flashlights only are permitted. So, of course, you'll find some at Villa la Vie. We just ask that you return them to their basket so the next guest can use them.

Special Aspects of a Villa la Vie Stay:

Villa la Vie is a place for adults, not only in its design but also because the entry stairs are somewhat steep, and the spiral staircase can be a problem for the very young. So, we welcome primary renters over 25 but not children under 12.

A rental agreement will be sent upon booking.

NO smoking or vaping, ever, anywhere inside or around Villa la Vie.

And no parties or "events" of any kind, ever, again - neither inside nor around Villa la Vie.

Quiet time is between 10 pm and 8 am, by complex and house rules.

Three night minimum stays, but we know you'll want at least a week.

To provide you with the best possible experience, we don't want our environmentally conscientious, excellent cleaners to be rushed. So we discourage check-ins on Saturdays, when the rest of the Island turns over. You're welcome to check out on Saturday but be forewarned: traffic getting off of the Island on Saturday can be terrifically bad.

PLEASE consider purchasing travel insurance to protect your trip. Then purchase it. It's worth it.

Despite what it says elsewhere in this listing (we can't get them to change the language) we are NOT professional property managers, and we do not have more than 10 listings on Vrbo. Villa la Vie is our only Vrbo listing. It is a labor of love, and our way of showing that we love Hilton Head. We know you will, too.

PLEASE NOTE - Beginning September 19, 2022, work will begin to replace the roofs in the Surf Court complex (staging for the work will begin on September 16). The work is being done in stages, and Villa la Vie's building will not be done for a couple of years. But there will be work going on elsewhere at the complex. We hope this doesn't cause any inconvenience. If it does, please let us know immediately so that we can take the matter up with the regime (that's what they call the HOA in South Carolina).
