Palmetto Dunes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This gorgeous home has not been rented previously and contains furniture and bedding found in only the nicest Palmetto Dunes properties. 3 Downwind is an immaculately kept home located on a small quiet cul-de-sac, less than a 7-minute walk to the beach. Situated on a wonderful freshwater lake, the views from the deck and pool take your breath away. You will feel your heart rate immediately slow down upon arrival. Palmetto Dunes has some wonderful scenery, and next to oceanfront views this home might possibly have one the finest settings in the entire plantation!

Step through the front door and enter the living room with cathedral ceilings and 2-story window views of the deck, pool, and lake beyond. The living room contains upscale comfortable furniture not often found in rental homes. Our home is all on one level with no stairs to climb. The wet bar located right off the living room contains a brand new wine cooler to help chill your favorite selections. The huge kitchen contains everything you need to prepare fantastic meals for the family. There is a kitchen island with a stovetop and you will love the oversized brand new LG Refrigerator. The dishwasher is also brand new. The cupboards are stocked with attractive dishware with plenty of extra space to store groceries and snacks. Right off the kitchen is a very large laundry room with lots of storage space and a work place if you feel the need to get connected with the WiFi available throughout the house. We just purchased a brand new Whirlpool HE Washer & Dryer for your use.

Two separate eating areas provide ample space for a houseful. A formal eating area seats six people along with a very nice glass table next to the kitchen that also seats six. There are hardwood floors in both the kitchen and adjacent dining area.

In addition to the 3 bedrooms, we have a wonderful sleeping den right off the living room. Separated by pocket doors, this den area provides a 4th sleeping area and contains a brand new high quality queen-sized sleeper sofa. The den furniture beckons you to relax and enjoy a brand new 55' HDTV along with Stereo, DVD player, and Bose surround sound system.

Sit by the swimming pool, drink your favorite libation, and watch the wildlife descend onto the lake! If hot tubs are your thing, let your body relax in the wonderful spa. To heat the spa is extra, though. Whatever your choice, the view is unmatched! Escape the sun and enjoy the table with umbrella on the large deck that runs the length of the house. The deck can be accessed from sliding glass doors from both the living room and master bedroom.

The master bedroom suite has a king-sized bed that is wonderfully comfortable and only used sparingly. There is also a king bed in the 2nd bedroom. Both king beds were custom built by the Simmons Mattress Company to the specs of the previous owner, an executive of the company. You will not find better sleeping conditions --that I am sure of! The Master Suite is large and also has a separate reading area w/chair. Walk out the sliding glass doors onto the deck in the morning and watch the lake as it wakes up!

The 2nd bedroom is also oversized and contains a king bed. The 3rd bedroom has both two twin beds and a Daybed with pullout Trundle so this room sleeps 4 people. All bedrooms have TV/DVD BluRay combos. Dresser space and closet space are ample in all bedrooms so there will be no worries with finding a place for your things.

If you are looking for the perfect family vacation home or couple’s golf and tennis getaway, you need not look any further than 3 Downwind. It is our goal to exceed your expectations as we want you as guests again when you return to Hilton Head Island. My wife and I looked long and hard for just the perfect home that we knew our guests would be comfortable in. Come fall in love with this home as we have!

My wife and I live in Charlotte, NC. We have been coming to Hilton Head for over 20 years and have fallen in love with the island, especially Palmetto Dunes Plantation. We also own a Villa in St. Andrews Common, VRBO listing #39416.

Bill Barnhouse purchased this house in 2012

We looked for a home in Palmetto Dunes for 6 months prior to finding 3 Downwind. The setting on a freshwater lake and the view of the pool and lake from the deck were the best combination we had seen. The house has never been rented prior to us owning. The home was completely furnished and the previous owners had very, very fine taste in furniture, decorating, etc. You will not find nicer things in a rental home than this house! In addition to having a spectacular setting, this home is within minutes of the beach.

Palmetto Dunes does not have many homes located on cul-de-sacs. This home has a very quiet setting on a small cul-de-sac. This home has extra large bedrooms and the common areas are also large. The home has 2700 sq. ft, but seems larger than that. There are huge amounts of space in the laundry room. It has a built in work space, a pull down ironing board and much much more. Brings your fishing gear as the freshwater lake is stocked!

TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I'm conflicted in reviewing this as on one hand I want to shout about how fabulous this property is and how we had the most wonderful stay but on the other hand I want to keep it private and I don't want to not be able to book again! But that would be selfish and unfair so.......what a fabulous property. everything about this house was as per the description and we loved the house. The location is great. 10 mins walk from the beach and the same from Shelter Cove. Only downsides would be - only two sun loungers yet house accommodates 6 people, a few minor issues - few kitchen cupboard doors were broken, insect screen kept falling off the runner and the outside front lights didn't work...but in the big scheme of things...they were realty minor issues and the house generally was well furnished and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Phil & Sue for staying with us recently in our Palmetto Dunes homes. We do wish, though, that you had contact/mentioned earlier during your stay about the broken cupboard and outside light issue. I arrived shortly after your departure and fixed the kitchen cupboard in 5 minutes then replaced the lighting very quickly. Please let us know as soon as you can if there are any issues next time you stay with us. Thanks again!

INTREPID TRAVELLERS

  • 5 of 5
We spent a delightful week at this lovely property. Very good accommodation which was very clean with first class equipment. The house is situated in a nice location on a lake with plenty of wildlife to observe. Perhaps a little further away from the beach at Palmetto Dunes than we had expected but you can hire bikes. Plenty of restaurants nearby and a visit to a show at The Arts Centre is highly recommended. The property owner was very helpful and we would certainly recommend this property and Hilton Head in particular.

AWESOME HILTON HEAD VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Awesome vacation home in Hilton Head! This was our first time visiting the island and the house had everything we needed. Plenty of space, big kitchen, pool & hot tub, comfy beds and furniture. There was a small lake perfect for fishing and wildlife watching too. It was a 5 minute drive to the closest beach yet very secluded and quiet. If we ever return to Hilton Head we'll be sure to book this house again!

SUMMER STAY

  • 5 of 5
Wonder book collection for rainy days! Cozy beds and everything in the home you need for a comfortable stay. Close to the beach the only thing missing were bicycles and tennis rackets but there is a place down the road where you can rent them by the hour. Highly recommended :-)

EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY, WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at 3 Down Wind for most of the month of March and can echo all the positive comments noted in the following reviews. The owners were always available to answer questions both before and after our arrival and were clearly committed to assuring that we were fully satisfied with our experience. The home and property are meticulously maintained with the highest quality of fixtures, linens, appliances, dishes, etc. We truly felt like we were staying as pampered guests in a friend's home and not in a "rental". The setting is unforgettable - a private pond-side oasis under towering live oaks and pines with turtles, fish, squirrels, deer and a great diversity of birds.
