Private Homes house description

This is possibly the only rental property available in Palmetto Dunes that is a 10 minute walk (5 minute bike ride) to the beach AND is on a lagoon with a private dock AND has a view of the 2nd hole of the Fazio golf course! We are situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a no-through traffic street at 34 Heath Drive.

From the moment you step into the vaulted entry way you'll find one pleasant surprise after another. The elegantly appointed formal dining and living rooms will draw you to the spacious family room with incredible views of your deck, patio, pool & spa. This isn't a typical vacation feels like your home-away-from-home during your stay. From the family room, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and informal dining area. Every view is spectacular! This section of Palmetto Dunes features large lots with excellent separation from your neighbors. Our lovely lagoon is home to several gators, turtles, heron, egrets & wood storks. Unlike most rental properties, you also have use of our garage with keyless touchpad entry. Our home is located within the security gate of the resort and our street is very quiet (no thru traffic).

This is a luxury rental with two king master bedroom suites and two queen bedrooms. Each bedroom has a private bath (4 hair dryers provided, walk-in closets and good separation for peace & quiet). We also provide a queen size and a twin size air bed for children. The maximum ADULT occupancy is 8. The twin fits in an alcove in the Master closet with lots of room to spare! Our grandkids love to 'camp out' there. The master suite features French doors to a private deck & a large master bath with a jetted corner tub and oversize shower with spectacular views. There is also one queen guest bedroom on the first floor. As you can see in our photos this 11 year young home (3200 square feet) is beautifully furnished & professionally decorated. Our 'penthouse' master suite has been redecorated and features a new king Beautyrest mattress. Master bathrooms both have double sinks. PLEASE NOTE: maximum of 8 adults.

We welcome families & children to our home! During your stay, please enjoy our pool with many toys, as well as beach toys & chairs. We have 3 pack 'n plays (your sheets), a high chair & a full size Peg Perego stroller. Fishing from our private dock is permitted. We provide several bikes (see photo)some children's bike helmets, family games, cards & a poker set as well as DVD, CD & VCR players. The dry bar in the living room contains a full compliment of glass & barware. Kayak, canoe & additional bike rental is nearby at Palmetto Dunes Outfitters where you can launch into the 11 mile lagoon system that offers a unique view of the Dunes as it wanders through the homes & golf courses of the resort. The fitness center in the nearby Marriott Ocean Front Resort offers weekly access at reasonable rates. Beach access is conveniently located through the Disney Beach Resort or the Dunes House in Palmetto Dunes where you'll find bike racks, limited parking, decks, restrooms & a snack bar. Relax at the Omni Beachfront Resort which offers full spa services at the Ocean Tides Spa just minutes from your front door. The Coastal Discovery museum and Pinckney Island (National Wildlife Refuge) are great places to explore.

Palmetto Dunes amenities are among the finest on Hilton Head Island. This property is conveniently located to all of them! Enjoy 3 miles of spotless beach, or choose from a world class tennis facility and three championship golf courses. Unique to Palmetto Dunes also is an 11 mile lagoon system. Shelter Cove is Palmetto Dunes' deepwater access. Boat & kayak trips on Broad Creek and to many destinations depart from here. There is great shopping, scenic views of the harbour from many restaurants and summer fireworks on Tuesdays. Take the complimentary Dunes Buggy and avoid looking for a parking place.

We are golfers and have played most courses on & near the Island. We are happy to suggest our favorites. Palmetto Dunes often offers complimentary golf & tennis clinics, too. We know you'll love Hilton Head Island and hope you'll visit soon!

Please call the owners direct at first number listed below (cell phone) for further information and more photos. We look forward to having you and your family & friends enjoy our wonderful Hilton Head Island vacation home. PURA VIDA!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Since our family has been vacationing on HHI since 1982, it was finally time to take the leap into vacation home ownership. We enjoy all the wonderful amenities offered by the Low Country, HHI & Palmetto Dunes and look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven on earth with you and your family & guests. Wayne & Judy live in Pennsylvania and work at Sugarloaf Golf Club. Wayne is an avid cyclist and runner and this year logged over 100,000 miles on his bike and 10,000 running (lifetime). Judy loves to cook and vacation on HHI, but mostly they both love spending time with their two grandchildren Evan & Gracie. Linda & Mike are from West Virginia (Wayne & Linda are sister & brother ~ Judy & Mike call themselves 'the outlaws instead of the inlaws). Mike is a retired mining engineer & Linda is a tax preparer. Mike is an avid hunter and Linda is the decorator of the family. They spend most of their free time with their two children and seven grandchildren Aly, Bailey, Josie, Taygen, Kayla, Eric & Andrew.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  When we walked in the front door of this house for the first time, we were all speechless. The open floor plan, beautiful decor and gorgeous pool area were icing on the cake. This house was more than we ever thought we'd find under one roof.
