Our 2 East Wind home is located on the Mariner's side of Palmetto Dunes Resort. The house is 3rd row and only fifty steps on a private, shaded walkway to the white sandy beach of Hilton Head Island. This is a home that feels like home away from home with its great living space, fully equipped kitchen, large bedrooms that have queen baths; the master bedroom has a king bed and has access to the pool and deck area. The guest bedrooms have two queen beds in each room. The fourth guest room is upstairs and has two queen beds and full bath and has an area which has been converted to a 'play area' for the small children in your family. There are all NEW Beauty Rest mattresses on all beds for your comfort.
Kids NEVER HAVE TO CROSS THE STREET to go to the beach....house located on beach side of the street.
The tropical pool and large deck are right off the living area and very convenient to the kitchen and dining area. There are glass doors across the living area overlooking the pool and it makes for a bright and airy living space as well as having a total view of the pool and deck so you can keep a close eye on the children. There is also a Carolina Room and it has sliding glass doors that open onto the tropical pool area. The deck and pool are very private with no other house nearby. There is a large Weber gas grill for those nightly cookouts
The location of the home is convenient to the beach, restaurants, bike paths, tennis courts and golf courses; all within Palmetto Dunes Resort. Palmetto Dunes offers a FREE ride on the Dunes Buggy when you want to go to Shelter Cove for shopping or eating out. Just call and request a pick-up and they will be there to take you to your destination.
This home will accommodate up to 12 to 14 people or three families.
My family stayed here recently and had a great time! The location cannot be beat! Your located within a 100yds or so to the beach with a private paved walkway to access it. Everyone one that we came in contact with were extremely friendly, my wife and I ran in the mornings and were greeted by everyone with a smile and a hello. Anytime we had to leave the plantation we were very close to local shops and restaurants so it made it nice to explore the area do some shopping and get a bite to eat. My kids could not get enough of the pool, the water was crystal clear and the pool cleaner stopped by to treat the water and informed us it was OK to continue swimming. Also mid week the the owners of the property called to make sure we were having a good time and if we needed anything. Unfortunately someone in our party who was just visiting decided to leave some very disappointing comments (see previous review) which were the opposite of the rest of our parties opinion. The house is a bit outdated yes, and a few things may need addressed but don't let this steer you away from staying here, you will enjoy yourself!!!!
My in laws are currently staying at your property, and when we arrived on Saturday we were expecting a well kept CLEAN house. The floors were extremely dirty, the upholstery is stained, the windows are a mess and all the cups, plates and silverware were so stained and filthy we resorted to paper and plastic. I live here, so I know that cockroaches are very common, BUT, we have killed several, and I know that if you find dead ones that means the house has been treated, obviously it hasn't. We stayed Saturday night, and our mattress was so lumpy and worn out it made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. Fortunately, my husband and I have the option of going to our own home, THEY DO NOT. The one bathroom has 2 doors and the one does not lock so we had to put a suitcase behind it so no one would barge in on someone, and when you turn the fan on in the same bathroom it's like a blast furnace! When you want to take a cool shower and cool off you are sweating so bad it is impossible to get ready. There are deck boards that need replaced and nail heads that are popping up, dangerous for toddlers.
We stayed at this property for a wonderful week in March. The weather could not have been better, with balmy days and mild nights. The beach truly is only a short walk down a path and, as advertised, does not require crossing traffic. The property is private yet convenient to restaurants, shops and several grocery stores. The pool, which we had heated, is right off the back with no steps necessary to access, making it kid and grandma friendly. The kitchen and baths are nice, but updates will be needed soon. All in all, a wonderful place to relax and reconnect with family while enjoying all that HHI has to offer.
We stayed in this house on a girls tennis weekend. The house was fantastic. Spacious comfortable bedrooms, a large living area and a well-stocked kitchen were all perfect for our needs. We didn't use the pool, it was too early in the season, but it and the patio looked very inviting. The beach was so close, just a sort distance down a path and the tennis center was within walking or biking distance.
This was our second stay in your house and we will definitely be back.
This house was perfect for my family. There were 10 of us from 8 months to 62 years and we could not be happier. The picture does not do the pool justice. The rooms, the beds, stocked kitchen, beach access, parking, the deck, the pool, closet space, bathrooms, washer/dryer, nice location; I just can't say enough good things about it. I wish the week was at least 10 days long, we hated to leave. There was plenty of space that we were not all on top of each other. We were back and forth to the beach constantly and the convenience was great, especially with a baby. We would definitely love to return in the future.
We came to Hilton Head after Christmas this year and it was so much fun. This is a wonderful classic beach cottage, very accommodating for our family and friends who converged from around the country. Everyone had plenty of room, the beds were extremely comfortable (and having 2 queens in each room was perfect with so many kids) and the kitchen was well equipped. The walk to the beach was short and pleasant and it was nice not to have to cross a street. We would definitely recommend this for a family vacation home and would love to come back. The property management team was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.
