This 5500 square feet VIP residence boasts 3 large living areas, 2 porches, a large gourmet kitchen with adjacent dining area and a formal dining room.

Walk out on the veranda and sit beneath the paddle fans, or step into the large heated pool and connected hot tub, or read a book in the hammock while you enjoy the flora and fauna. It's about an 10 minute walk to the beach at a casual pace.

The house is situated on a quiet secluded lot with a long circular driveway and surrounded by countless live oaks and pristine palm trees. The FIRST LEVEL enters into a large 35x25 formal living room with fireplace and direct views of the lagoon and covered porch.

You can take a short walk to the beach under the canopy of live oaks, rent bikes and explore the meandering roads, or rent a kayak and follow the lagoon to one of the adjacent 3 nearby championship golf courses.

TOTAL of 7 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, 3 kings, 1 queen, 2 sofa beds, 4 twins, 1 trundle, sleeps 16 comfortably. One large screen tv, and 7 other tv/dvd combinations throughout house. We also have wi fi available at no additional cost.

About The Owner

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

Hilton Head is a wonderful vacation spot! The Beach, sports (tennis, golf, kayaking, running), weather, and of course, just plain relaxing, all met our needs and ultimately contributed to our desire to have a second home here.

What makes this house unique

Heated pool, and spa, beautiful lagoon view and a short walk to the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting us stay at your beautiful home! The pictures don't do it justice. We loved the kitchen with the granite countertops and open floor plan. Don played pool with the guys upstairs and I lounged in the pool with the kids. We'll definitely be coming back!

Don't Look any Further....Stay Here!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 13 in our family that stayed at this beautiful house to celebrate my Mom's 80th birthday. Everyone was so comfortable here in this house with so many places to gather and be together and perfect for the person who needs to sneak away to be alone! It was the most wonderful vacation home you could imagine. It's spacious, decorated beautifully, equipped with everything you could think of to make your stay perfect. Large screen TV in family room and TV's in every bedroom. The most wonderful game room with a pool table, surround sound, and a spacious area to gather. The pool sits on a picteresqu waterway perfect for laying out during the day and a late afternoon cocktail. There are 2 outdoor areas, one off main living and one off the game room to sit and relax. The owner of the house was absolutely awesome to work with and answered every question I had, making the rental process super easy and efficient. The location in Palmetto Dunes could not be better.... a 5 minute walk to beach access, fabulous rental area for bikes, canoes, etc., and so central on the island for great restaurants, putt putt, shopping or whatever. No need to stay anywhere else on Hilton Head Island! Stop looking and book this place today!

Perfect house for large famalies or large groups

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect and accomodated a group of 14 with plenty of room to spare. We had plenty to do with a great location. Rented kayaks,fished and rented bikes all from the Palmetto Dunes Outfitters located at the main gate. The house was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. The owner is easy to work with and the communication on the details was good and timely. We are planning t make this an annual trip to HH and would recommend to anyone to rent this property.
