About the property

Newly Updated 4br/ba Beach Home With Secluded Pool - Sleeps 10

Palmetto Tides is the perfect place to enjoy the many unique amenities of Hilton Head Island, all within the comfort and serenity of our perfectly located beach retreat. As the new owners of this wonderful home, we are committed to providing families an unforgettable vacation experience.

Located within the private Palmetto Dunes Resort, this third row beach home comfortably sleeps 10, with a spacious pool and best of all a secluded beach path leading right out of the backyard just steps from the ocean, without ever crossing a street! Perfect for families and large groups, special occasions or 'just because' get-aways. We hope you'll share the experience with us as we build new memories into the history of this wonderful home away from home.

Our home has a spacious, open concept living area with vaulted 2 story ceilings, complete with a comfy wrap-around couch to fit even the largest families while viewing our 50'' flat screen hdtv on family movie night.

Cook a delicious family meal in our well-equipped kitchen while friends are seated at the roomy counter enjoying locally purchased lowcountry sangria. Enjoy home cooked meals together in our great dining room or move outside to the screened-in porch to enjoy a meal overlooking the large pool area on a beautiful South Carolina evening.

On the first floor, you'll also find a comfortable bedroom with twin beds for the kids, complete with wall mounted flat screen hdtv, as well as a master bedroom with king sized bed and in-suite bath, along with another first floor bathroom with direct access to the outdoor pool area.

Stepping outside, enjoy our elevated deck with a view of the private and spacious pool area with a large, piano shaped pool. The pool is equipped with plentiful patio furniture for everyone to enjoy comfortable days in the sun in the secluded backyard. Flip on the underwater lights to set the mood for peaceful and serene summer evenings listening to the ocean while grilling up the day's catch on the barbecue.

Moving back inside, walk up the open staircase to two upstairs bedrooms with king sized beds, 36' flat screen tvs with beautiful views overlooking the pool and patio and private in-suite full bathrooms.

For beach lovers and families alike, the highlight of the property is the direct, backyard access to a semi-private beach path which leads directly to the pristine Palmetto Dunes beaches, just a minutes' walk away and for the kids - without ever crossing a street! Wake up early and walk your cup of fresh brewed coffee the 100 yds to the beach to witness the picturesque Hilton Head sunrises, or stroll down in the evening to enjoy a lovely twilight beach walk. No matter the time of day, the walk to the beach could not be easier. When you return, rinse off at the outdoor shower and take a dip in the pool.

For those who love the lowcountry nightlife, take the short stroll to the Dunes House Beachfront Restaurant and bar to enjoy a drink, a meal and some live music as the tide goes out. Ride bikes on the beach or take a trip to the General Store to enjoy some soft serve or replenish the groceries for tomorrow's home cooked meal. Close out your evenings after a sunset walk on the beach while enjoying a lowcountry classic - the covered front porch complete with porch rockers.

Just a short ride away, you'll also find three critically acclaimed world class golf courses for the golfers in the family. Adjacent to the golfer's paradise you'll also find plentiful tennis courts as well as direct access to 11 miles worth of man-made salt water lagoons. Enjoy kayak and canoe excursions, as well as chartered fishing trips to catch the massive redfish and elusive tarpon that call the lagoons their home. A short ride away families can enjoy shopping, restaurants, indoor/outdoor activities at the newly renovated Shelter Cove and world renowned Harbour Town.

This property offers the perfect balance between serene vacation relaxation in the comfort of a charming beach house and the outdoor activities and nightlife of Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head Island. Fully equipped with wireless internet access and premium cable television to keep your family connected and entertained!

Join us for your next vacation and make our home your beach retreat for years to come!

**Beginning in June 2016 the town of Hilton Head will begin a beach nourishment process. Palmetto Dunes beach is expected to be completed in October. For more information go to:

About Mary Lavezza

Hilton Head Island has always been a special place for our family. For over 30 years it has served as a winter getaway, dating back to the 1970’s when our late grandparents from Detroit, Michigan owned and enjoyed their own HHI property. The island provided us with years of wonderful childhood memories. Days were filled with playing on the beach collecting shells and sand dollars, feeding turtles, spotting alligators and shopping in the charming shops at Coligny Plaza.

After many years and additions, our family returned to Hilton Head In May of 2013 and fell in love with the island all over again. Our generation began to relive old memories, rode bikes on the beach while others fished, hit the links on one of the many championship golf courses and ended each day with a truly matchless Hilton Head sunset.

When we came upon the amazing opportunity to bring 96 Mooring Buoy into our family, we saw a chance to share our love of the island with others and we are committed to helping you create the generations of Hilton Head memories we cherish so much.

Mary Lavezza purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Lavezza chose South Carolina

Our beach retreat offers the perfect balance between secluded vacation getaway and exciting, activity filled beach excursions nestled in the heart of the most self-sustained and well equipped plantation in Hilton Head. Play golf in the morning at one of 3 world renowned golf courses, spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool and take an evening beach walk to The Dunes House for a drink and some dancing on the shore

With the new 2016 beach path and ramp it couldn't be any easier getting your bikes down to the beach for a unique bike ride at low tide.

What makes this house unique

The perfect location, a charming interior and the traditional South Carolina lowcountry home with front porch rockers for relaxation, a large pool and patio area for sun-bathing and a short stroll to the beautiful beach along the semi-private path. Kids never have to cross a street, walks to the beach to enjoy a sunrise or sunset are so easy they become a daily routine, and the amenities offered by the Palmetto Dunes Resort make it hard to leave!

Walking to the beach along the semi-private path leading directly out of the backyard, it feels as if you are walking through a secret garden straddled by South Carolina palms.

Sitting in the spacious living room and enjoying family movie night in front of the floor-ceiling brick fireplace or taking an evening drink outside onto the screened-in porch, the property immediately feels like home and is the perfect place for families to reunite. Life slows down in Palmetto Dunes, and the simple pleasures of a traditional low country home make the little things that much sweeter!

We had a great vacation in HHI at Palmetto Tides

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in HHI for over 10 years. This pool, outdoor area and beach path access was by far the best. The pool size and shape were great. The layout of the house was perfect for our needs with the three king master suites and additional bedroom. We loved the screened in porch with comfy wicker furniture. We would only advise some minor updates that would make this house perfect. Water facets, bathroom towel bars, and general repairs would be helpful. I would highly recommend this home!

Thank you for letting us use your home for our summer getaway!

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Palmetto Tides is the perfect location for a family getaway. Mary and the Island Getaway folks made everything special. Our children and grandchildren loved the beach and the great pool at the house. Took several enjoyable bike rides along the trails and on the beach. Played golf at the Palmetto Dunes courses less than a mile away. Great courses; reasonably priced. Will definitely be on our list for a return trip.

Great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week at the beach with two of our children, their spouses and our two toddler grandsons. The house was perfect for us. A short walk to the beach, which took less time than if we were staying in a beachfront condo. The pool was nice. No need to heat it in June. There was a lot of area around the pool, so you could be in the sun or the shade. The kitchen is on the small size, but was well stocked and you could see the dining area and great room, so you never felt isolated while in the kitchen. The owners were very responsive to our questions and concerns. We would rent this house again, unless we needed additional bedrooms.

We had a delightful vacation at Palmetto Tides! This vacation home was perfect for our family. Plenty of spaces to socialize; screened porch, rocking chairs on front porch, back deck, lounging by the pool and on the large sofa in the living area. The pool was perfect for us as it has sun and shade all day. The walk to the beach was short and so easy with the shady paved path and boardwalk. (Our beach rolling cart was perfect for this path.) Palmetto Dunes is an amazing area and we thoroughly enjoyed the bike paths. Thanks for the perfect place to unwind!

Car: recommended

Located in the heart of Palmetto Dunes Resort and surrounded by countless amenities all within driving, bike riding and even walking distance. Gated plantation that offers various restaurants, three award winning golf courses and wonderful outdoor activities. Rent a kayak or paddle board and explore the 11 miles of lagoons. Charter a fishing trip for an exciting day filled with redfish and tarpon in the plantation lagoons or a trip for deep sea fishing leaving from the island. Even more convenient, walk the semi private path to the beach for surf casting. Go for a quiet bike ride around the plantation and on the beach. There is a charming general store just a short bike ride away for homemade breakfast sandwiches, ice cream, a candy bar, basic groceries, sunscreen, souvenirs and bait. Palmetto Dunes is also just minutes from the shopping at Shelter Cove Towne Centre, Coligny Plaza, Harbour Town and the Tanger Outlets. The island also offer mini golf and other family friendly activities. Grocery stores are also close by as are many wonderful restaurants for either cooking at home or dining out. There is so much to do in Palmetto Dunes you can't help but fall in love!
