Overview

South Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

Choose 4 Or 5 Bdr (all W Baths) with reduced pricing for 4 bedroom configuration

Ocean's Gem is exactly that - a pristine house with a pristine view of the ocean from huge windows that make you feel like you are outside every minute of your stay.

Ocean’s Gem at Palmetto Dunes Beach Resort is breathtaking. (The views are what you dream of when you dream of the ideal destination vacation. ) The sparkling Atlantic is right outside your door & you have private access to the white sands beach. The entire ocean-facing wall is widow after window – all of them Anderson Coastal windows, tinted so that you don’t get to much heat from the sun, & don’t have to close the blinds in the evening to protect the Loggerhead turtles on the beach. Sunrise is spectacular from most rooms in the house. 3 of the 5 bedrooms (all with private baths) have ocean-facing balconies or decks & the other two bedrooms have window seats with ocean views.

The recent $750,000 upgrade included upgraded kitchen & dining room contents, all new pillows & bedding, new pots/pans, glassware & art. We replaced the aging pool heater with a new 2X sized ocean front enclosed heater to speed heating and avoid most mechanical issues; & replaced 2 of the 4 HVAC units for better cooling (also spray foamed the attics for temperature control.) We added a 5th bedroom with 2 queen beds.

THE BEACH IS IN YOUR BACKYARD – SUNRISE IS GLORIOUS

The backyard is an oasis. The grassy area just this side of the beach is ideal for playing bocce or badminton, & a large travertine patio faces the ocean. The pool (37’ x 12’ feet) is gorgeous, with infinity edge & integrated spa, enclosed by freestanding glass fencing. The patio is lit by LED lights for enjoyment at night without bothering the mama loggerhead turtles. Ocean’s Gem has an outdoor kitchen complete with a bar, & sink, a great Delta Heat grill, bar seating for 5 and table and chairs for four.

There are poolside chaise for your comfort, & a table & chairs too. The patio is it for evening use. The beach is so close that you can wander there in less than a minute, using your private beach access. The small dunes off the back of the lawn are a nesting place for the loggerhead turtles. There is a shower & foot shower on your return from the beach to help avoid bringing sand into your living area and there is a place by the dune to hang your hammock.

We just completed a major landscaping overhaul, cutting down years of accumulated bushes & debris that was blocking the ocean views & trees that were making the house too dark. The views are now largely unimpeded & truly breathtaking.

PREFER TO WATCH THE SUNSET?

The other side of the house has an Italianate patio complete with grapevine-covered pergola, arches & columns & a beautiful terrazzo floor. This large patio is in the shade during the day & is an idyllic place to sit & read or just watch the sun go down. We added a table & four chairs & two chaises for your enjoyment

THE KITCHEN

The gourmet kitchen is loaded with every convenience. The double ovens make cooking for a large crowd a breeze. The new Thermidor stove is a 5 burner with ultra low simmer (read the instructions please). There is a large Viking fridge, a wine fridge, a new full size fridge downstairs & beverage fridge upstairs. There are icemakers in the freezers as well as a freestanding under-counter icemaker. We have just replaced all the cutlery & pots & pans (with Al Clad Emeril series cookware). I’ve added a turkey roaster, lemon & lime crushers & numerous other kitchen gadgets since I plan to live here 4 months every year. There is lots of cupboard space with an additional new double pantry for guests down the hall to the new laundry room (featuring a Jentle Jet ‘Delicates’ sink). We also feature a stocked Martha Stewart wrapping station for you convenience. The kitchen bar seats 4.

THE BEDROOMS:

The newly remodeled Starfish Master bedroom (sleeps 2) is almost decadent. With a private double couch on covered deck facing the ocean, a gas fireplace facing the king sized bed (fee) & a bathroom designed for your every enjoyment. The ‘Roman’ bath has a Jacuzzi tub, a walk in shower with a wall of glass tiles, a separate commode (comfort height soft close toilet seat) & bidet, two closets, a safe, double sinks, vanity seating area & lots of lights & mirrors. We have installed a dual control sleep number king bed in this room for your enjoyment.

In the off season you can choose to pay for 3 (sleep 10) or 4 (sleep 14) bedrooms upstairs depending on your group’s size & what time of year it is. An upstairs bar with fridge graces the long balcony that connects the 4 upstairs bedrooms.

The Aqua Palm ocean facing Bedroom was just upgraded to a King. The Aqua Palm room (sleeps two) has an ocean-facing balcony with double chaise & spectacular ocean view. There is a new 42” flat screen TV. The private bath has double sinks, a large walk in shower & bathtub combo & a separate commode. There is a chair with ottoman & reading lamp for a quiet get away spot with a great view.

There is a SeaShell Queen (sleeps two) ocean facing bedroom identical to the Palm bedroom with large ocean facing balcony with double chaise, glass panels to enhance your view, double chaise on the deck. The room has a large private bath with a vanity where you can sit & put on make up. There is a new 50” flat screen television, a large closet & a chair & ottoman with lamp so that you can read while enjoying the view off the balcony. Whether you want to just enjoy the cool visual hues of the electric fireplace or add the heat option on a cold night, the fireplace makes this room a beautiful get away.

The Coral (Double Queen sleeps 4) bedroom has 2 queen beds & a large private bath with a shower/tub combo. Elevated windows provide lots of natural light in both the bedroom & the bath. There is an extended window seat with ocean view.

The Turtle Bedroom, another double queen bedroom (sleeps 4) (1 queen, 1 Murphy queen bed) and private bath with walk in shower. The Murphy bed can be folded away so that you have a large queen bedroom if you prefer. There is an extended window seat with ocean view.

THE LIVING SPACES

The breakfast nook feels like it is outside. Surrounded by tall windows on 3 sides it is a sunny morning place to enjoy your coffee. It features a large round glass that seats six, & has a transparent base that lights up at night.

The Family room is an open configuration with new large comfortable chairs & couches to enhance your comfort. The TV is an electronic marvel! Featured on Houzz, the TV has an industrial track that it can ride to the location you prefer, & then swivels 360 degrees for superb viewing from any room (moved by adults only). I’ve installed a Blue Ray DVD, a DVR, upgraded to premium TV channels & enabled you to purchase movies from On Demand (which will then be billed to your credit card once we receive the Time Warner Cable bill). There is free high speed Internet.

The Living room is wall-to-wall tall ocean facing windows. It’s all sun, sky & sand that stretch out before you in an uninterrupted panorama. Even the fireplace has a glass flue so that nothing impedes the view. There is a high-end stereo with remote controls & a large CD library.

The Dining Room features an exquisite glass table supported by seashell-encrusted bases. Handmade & yet fully protected, it is an Oceanside masterpiece. Of a 10' x 4' glass table seating 14.

About Kathleen

We live here part of each year, and we keep our home in pristine condition. Part of the home is painted each year, all mechanical items checked and repaired in compliance with our Annual Maintenance and Repair List (which you are welcome to a copy of). This is our home - we appreciate guests who help us keep it beautiful.

We are also very security conscious. We provide a credit card operated safe, just installed Virginia Graham Baker approved pool and spa drains. You have lockable storage for safe golf bag storage, There are multiple fire extinguishers and smoke detectors. There is private beach access. There is a new security system with buttons to call for police, fire or medical even if the system is not 'set'. A strobe on the front of the house alerts arriving first responders to your location.

Our agent is accustomed to handling high profile renters in a very private manner.

Kathleen purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathleen chose South Carolina

This property has a wide open vista of the ocean, it has loggerhead turtles who nest on the dune behind the house, it just underwent a $750,000 upgrade (and was earlier a Lighthouse Award winner for best remodel on Hilton Head). I plan to live in this house 3 or 4 months a year - so it will be maintained as my home, in pristine condition. The infinity pool with hot tub on the ocean is a dark bottom pool to maintain heat and has been upgraded with Virgina Graham Baker Act compliant drains for safety. It has a new alarm system, one touch call for police, fire and medical. There are 3 fire extinguishers and numerous smoke, heat and a carbon dioxide detector that are directly linked to Palmetto Security. We care about both the home and the comfort of our guests. Cold champagne on ice will greet you on arrival. There will be a letter explaining how the house works so you don't waste precious vacation time trying to figure it out. The massive upgrade and remodel touched the house from roof to basement, beach to street and the place is gorgeous. Come and stay at Ocean's Gem for a gem of a vacation experience.

Hilton Head Island is the ideal vacation spot - superb beaches, marvelous infrastructure, great golf, boating, fishing, kayaking...more to do than you can believe and some of the best restaurants you can imagine. Hilton Head is 1 of the top 10 beaches in the US, is the most environmentally sound island (no bright street lights, large signs or garish buildings: heavily treed) 250 restaurants, 50 miles of bike/nature trails & loggerhead turtle nests on the beach, botanical gardens, eco tourism opportunities for extensive viewing of wildlife at multiple preservation areas, Designer golf (24 courses on a 12 x 5 mile island), antiquing, birding, fishing, shopping and shelling with beautiful weather, family friendly atmosphere & natural beauty that has been carefully preserved.

Ocean's Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect relaxing vacation. I am disabled and to start with a wonderful 1st class elevator automatically welcomed me and placed me on the same plane as those that joined our family, leaving me to be independent and no need to ask for assistance. The house welcomes and leaves you with class, room for everyone to be together or individual. The views are as if you can touch the ocean at high tide, and the wide sand at low tide allow for unlimited fun! The sunsets capturs you from the hot tub and / or pool with the magic only the ocean can bring. The location is whatever you make it. You can be involved and all over the island, via car, bicycles or walking paths or hibernate in the quite and luxury of this beautiful home. A true Gem to revisit and remember with smiles and magic.

Everything about this house is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this fabulous ocean front beach house. Everything about this house is wonderful. Breathtaking ocean views from sunrise to sunset and amazing star gazing too. We saw many dolphins while walking the beach searching for shells and birds. This house is not only beautiful but every comfort and amenity is provided and is truly first class. It is obvious this owner takes great pride in her home as it is meticulously maintained. I highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to vacation on Hilton Head Island.

Spectacular - A perfect Christmas at the beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was nothing short of incredible. The whole experience at the house provided us with quite a memorable Christmas. The amenities are truly first class and are exactly what one desires in a 5 star beach house. The pool and spa were hassle free and stunning, the upstairs rooms provided breathtaking views and sunlight in the morning, and the living quarters of the home are great for a large group to sit back relax and spend time together. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation on Hilton Head Island.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This property is unbelievable! The ocean views make for the most beautiful sunrises. The Ocean's Gem is properly named as it provides luxurious amenities in a environment that could not be more relaxing. No detail was overlooked in the planning of this beautiful home. I will not soon forget my stay at the Ocean's Gem and would confidently recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

The house is located at 13 Man O'War Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and is right on the beach. Depending on the time of year, you can rent either 4 or 5 bedrooms for your group, saving smaller groups some money.

We JUST finished a $750,000 upgrade and the place is gorgeous.

Hilton Head is consistently voted one of the top ten beaches in the USA. We had 319 loggerhead turtles' nests on the beach this year, one of them right at Ocean's Gem, have seen 7 deer in the last week. Sightings of dolphins are an every day thing, and we had an eagle land on the beach out front to dine on a fish. If you like to fish, there is great fishing right out front.

If you like to eat out, we have more options than you can begin to try in a week. From high end gourmet (Michael Anthony's Ombra being a great experience) to the best (very best) burrito you will ever eat (at Amigo's - a strip mall dive with the best marguerite in town). We also have two GREAT Italian restaurants. Its really hard to choose.

Like history? from thousands year old shark's teeth to be found on the beach to the Civil War cannon ball we found while planting, this is a fascinating place. Ever see a Revolutionary War soldiers grave? They're here.

Prefer water sports? There is not much you can't do here. Like to kayak with dolphins? go oyster picking? wind surfing? Para flying? Ziplining? Call me :) 612 616 0110

Notes:
Ocean’s Gem, a luxury private home won Hilton Head’s singular award for best architectural remodel. We just did a $500,000 upgrade. It is a 4100 square foot house with 2000 square feet of decks balconies and private get a ways, built as a private residence-not a rental. This ocean front gem is a home to delight in. Designed & set up to facilitate your every need, it has rarely been used & only been rented since 2013. With 4 or 5 bedrooms (your choice), 5.5 baths, you can rent it to sleep either 10 or 14. It is elevated 19’ above sea level, the better to enjoy the view. The pool & patio are also elevated, and the Italian travertine facing the ocean hosts a large bar area that seats six, a grill, sink, just off the kitchen & family room. My home sits as close to the beach as you can get - The house is far from the big hotels so that you will not have the massive crowds on the beach that some homes do. This is truly a vacation paradise - named the #1 US Beach by the Huffington Post.
