8 Ketch is a fabulous oceanfront home in the Palmetto Dunes community on Hilton Head Island. Located on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, this home features tasteful furnishings, new carpet throughout, and a spacious oceanfront pool and spa - all accompanied by breathtaking ocean views! In all, it is the perfect escape for family and friends.

Upon entering the home, guests will find vaulted ceilings and a large living area with plenty of seating, a 48” plasma TV and DVD player. There is also a half bath and wet bar with wine cooler located inside the front door. To the right of the living area is a dining room with a large wood table that can accommodate 10 people. The kitchen, which was renovated in 2015, features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors. A table, that seats 8, looks out a large picture window over the pool and out to the ocean. Down the hall from the kitchen is a laundry room with full-size washer/dryer.

Continuing down the hall is a room that can be used as an additional bedroom or media room, complete with a 44” plasma TV, a queen sleeper sofa and doors for privacy. There is also a set of stairs that leads upstairs to the additional sitting room. On the other side of the house are two downstairs bedrooms. The first bedroom offers two twin beds, a 24” mounted flat screen TV and private bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Next to this bedroom will be the master bedroom. This room offers a king bed, additional sitting area, great views of the ocean, and private access out to the deck. The private master bathroom has a double vanity and walk-in shower.

The four additional bedrooms and a lounging area - perfect for reading the morning paper and relaxing - can be found upstairs on the second level of this oceanfront home. Off this lounging area is a bathroom with shower only. The first bedroom has a king bed and a 36” plasma TV. The private bathroom offers a single vanity and walk-in shower. The second bedroom has 1 king, 4 twins, a 40” TV and incredible views of the beach. This room has access to two full bathrooms. The private ensuite bath offers a single vanity and shower only. There is also bedroom and hall access to another full bathroom that offers a single vanity and shower. Down the hall, that is open to below, are two more bedrooms. The first bedroom has 2 kings and a 36” TV. The other bedroom has one king bed and 36” TV. These two bedrooms share a bath with shower only that is located at the end of the hallway. Both rooms have exceptional views of the ocean. Swinging doors may be used for privacy at opposite ends of the hallway.

The oceanfront pool is the perfect setting for lounging, grilling, and relaxing. The deck comes equipped with a premium Weber Platinum propane grill and a grilling and prep area for the chef. The large kidney shaped pool is great for families and also has an elevated spa that waterfalls into the pool. Plus, guests can enjoy a ping pong table in the garage! This is the perfect home for your next escape to Hilton Head!

* Additional charge to heat the pool and spa

40th Wedding Anniv w kids n grands!

  • 5 of 5

just returned from the BEST and most MEMORABLE family vacation ever...had our 3 married kids & spouses + 4 grands age 1-7 , the property was PERFECT

start with the kitchen...we ate all our meals there...had a virtual " waffle house" non stop :) there was a bonus room off the kitchen where we set up the " game room" for the grands..plugged in all the WI etc there...was perfect...PLENTY of room..double stair cases and a " BRIDGE" that my grandsons promptly started bombing us with their stuffed toys from there until we put a quick stop to it :)

Pool and Hot tub were wonderful...had a minor glitch getting the heat going but the property owner and management company took care of it right away.... proximity to the beach is a a 56 w if you are a golfer...easy easy easy...much better than being an 8 iron out :)

garbage service was prompt and on schedule, at check in the property was spotless. all we had to do was unpack and enjoy.

I would recommend this property for large family groups we had 8 adults , 4 grands and had plenty of space. the owner is most gracious and was available by e mail during the week if we added layer of security ..we only needed once, but was nice to have the availability. Hilton Head Island is unbeatable for a family vacation.... a lot to do, or do nothing...we cooked all our meals, grocery, drug stores whatever you need is within a couple of miles.

we will return here and are recommending to friends and associates.

Palmetto Dunes has excellent security as well...never felt more safe on vacation and we have travelled extensively. the noise at night...NON EXISTANT ...easy and deep Zzzz's so nice . Enjoy

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property! Everything- from the first email with the owner to checkout with the management agency- was top notch. Plenty of room for a large family to spread out and enjoy each other, or to find some privacy if wanted. Loved the ping-pong table on the one day it rained. Quiet, low-key area of Palmetto Dunes Resort. Great value for all you get with this home.

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

Each family had their own Suite and there were some rooms that were good for couples without children. There were plenty of places to sit and watch TV or play games. The kitchen was well stocked with nice non-stick pans. The hot tub and pool area was my favorite with very nice pool furniture. We spent most of our time by the pool or in the hot tub/pool. The agency that they use for rental was great and quick to answer any questions. Thanks for a great time.

Just had the best family vacation at this location. Plenty of room and baths. Love how secluded the pool area is. Easy access to beach. Beautiful ocean views, complete with dolphins. Biking and walking through this area is perfect. Close to activities and stores. Owner extremely helpful and easy to contact. Hope to return!
