Stay in the best Hilton Head Resort! Palmetto Dunes was ranked No 23 in the WORLD as the Best Family Resort by the readers of Travel and Leasure Magazine in the Nov 2013 issue!
This newer design, custom built home in Palmetto Dunes was just completely renovated and is only a 9 minute walk to the beach. The home is new to the rental market and has a layout and size that provides a great gathering place for large families and friends.
The setting: Located in a quiet yet convenient area of Pametto Dunes, this home has a short 9 min, beautiful, walk to the beach. It also has a similar length walk to the new Kroger grocery store in the opposite direction. Hop on a bike and cut the travel time down to a few minutes! The front of the home looks out to a beautifully landscaped front yard with a perfect, stately live oak surrounded by graceful azaleas. Additionally, across the street is a small undeveloped area providing more tranquil views of this peaceful setting. Functionally, a circular driveway serving a two car garage provides ample parking. The back area of the home is south facing and open providing tons of sun, (a rarity in Hilton Head), It also features perfect open views of the new pool, professional landscaping, and a 15-acre spring fed lake that provides fishing and abundant wildlife watching, especially all the incredible birds! The back yard setting alone will make you want to come back!
The pool: The pool is newly constructed and much larger than the average pool found in the area. It features an 8 foot deep end and an 8 inch deep sun shelf or kiddie area. It is graced on the back side by a 4ft wide shear flow fountain. Other highlights include a soft water/salt chlorination system,(no chlorine smell, red eyes, or irritation), colored LED lights for night time fun, and a large tile dolphin in 3D! Additionally, FREE heating,(when temp is above 50F), and cooling is provided, as needed, by a heat pump. Complimenting the pool is a large lawn area, a large paver pool deck with plenty of pool furniture, and an upgraded/renovated 12x30ft deck with built in seating, table and chairs for 6 with an umbrella, and a gas grill.
Living areas: An abundance of large living areas provides ample space for multiple activities. Entering inside, you’ll find a bright open floor plan starting with a large tiled entry with 14ft ceilings. Flanking the entry is a large formal living room providing a great place to visit or escape the activities of the great room. An adjacent formal dining room provides seating for 10.
The huge, fun, great room is perfect for watching sports or movies and features 14ft high ceilings, a large built-in entertainment center with a 60 inch smart TV, and a triple french door opening to the deck.
Overlooking the great room is an expanded gourmet kitchen featuring stainless appliances including a large double wall oven, and a five burner cooktop, as well as new cabinets and granite. The sizeable adjacent breakfast room seats 10 and is a great place to view the lake and watch the egrets, osprey, and herons in the morning.
Sleeping: Three separate bedroom areas make this layout ideal for multiple groups and privacy. There is a master/family suite that features double doors opening to a sitting area. Off this room is the master bedroom, the master bath, and a small bedroom with two twin beds. The master BR is beautifully furnished, has a 50in TV and a triple french door opening to the deck to enjoy the views. On the opposite side of the house are two more bedrooms. The first has a queen bed and full bath and the other bedroom has two sets of bunks beds, a trundle, and a full bath. The second master bedroom is on the front side of the home and is the only room on an elevated level providing quiet privacy. It has tropical Tommy Bahama furniture, (king bed), huge windows with great views out the front and a full bath with a beautiful tile shower. Lastly, a new queen sleep sofa is provided in the living room.

We have vacationed in HH for years and have truly grown to love the area. Our family is excited and thankful to have the opportunity to purchase and renovate this home so others can get away and enjoy this beautiful setting with their family!

Location, setting, amenities and quality of home.
Just spent a week with a total of 10 guys for a week of golf. The home was exactly as advertised, beautifully decorated, very clean, and very comfortable for the 10 of us, and the heated pool was an added luxury. We get together each year for a golf trip and the consensus was that this years trip was by far the best due to being able to all stay at this home. We usually stay in a couple of condos but in the future it will be a house and if we don't add additional players we will definitely look at staying in this lovely home again. We needed assistance with the WiFi and the owner was extremely timely in getting back to us with the solution I would definitely recommend this property to anyone needing a home large enough to comfortably accommodate 10 to 12 people.
This was a very nice beach home that comfortable fit 8-10 people. The kitchen was well stocked. There were plenty of towels and supplies like TP to get you started. The property was very clean and well maintained.
It is a very short walk or bike to the beach. The owner has a lot of bikes in the garage to ride to the beach so no need to rent them or bring your own which is nice. The best part is the large salt water pool which was enjoyed by all. There is nothing like running or playing tennis or even coming back from the beach and jumping in the pool!
It was enjoyed by all and no choline is a big bonus! The pond in the back was great and we were able to observe lots of wild life like birds and alligators. Would definitely come back again. Thanks!
We love this house! This is our second year that we rent this house. We absolutely love it! We enjoyed the pool , and everything this house had to offer. We loved the location, very short drive to the beach (if you want to go to Disney private beach ) . We will definitely rent this house again and we will recommend it to our friends and family.
Thank you to the wonderful owner for being helpful and very attentive, making sure we are happy at his place.
Thank you, we had a wonderful vacation!
We absolutely loved the home. Things were better than advertised. Definitely will be back
For 17 years we have come to Hilton Head for our family vacation - getting larger and larger houses as our family grew. We always stayed in Sea Pines, but this year with the golf course construction in full swing, we decided to try Palmetto Dunes. I knew the house and pool needed to be extraordinary to counter the fact that we were changing things up. The minute we opened the door and saw the grand house, the pool and the incredible view, everyone adjusted to the change rather easily! In fact, by week's end each person thought it was the best place we'd ever stayed.
We enjoyed the salt water pool immensely. Our 6 and 9 year-old granddaughters had to be bribed to come out and the 12" deep section was perfect for our nearly 2 year-old. The light show and waterfall were reasons to never leave. The heat was also very convincing! Of course, the beach is the biggest draw to come to HH, but we found that the route to be shaded and lovely. The available bikes made it seem effortless to come and go several times a day. The closeness of the grocery stores on 278 was also a huge benefit.
Inside, the home is well-designed for multiple groups. In our case, we had people from four different families (ages 1.9 to 70 years), but no one felt crowded and privacy could be had at any time of the day. And I can't say enough about the well-stocked kitchen. Part of the fun of vacationing together for us is cooking meals. We all bring our best efforts to the table each evening and it is pure joy to work in this kitchen and enjoy a leisurely meal at the dining table or out on the deck.
So glad we took the leap to try Palmetto Dunes. Wade, the owner, made it so we never looked back - good communication, a spotless home filled with interesting art and a garage full of ways to enjoy ourselves. He even threw in a few loud frogs, turtles and alligators! If our family doesn't grow exponentially by next year, we'd love to return. Please let us know when you are ready to take reservations for 2017!
The house was beautiful and very well equipped. The owners were attentive and fantastic to work with. We come to Hilton Head often, and our 7 year old stated he wanted to stay in this house every time!
