About James and Kathy Boyd

After coming to Hilton Head for almost 20 years we decided to buy a home to use as our own vacation getaway and rent to others. Coming from Missouri it is always a nice change to arrive to the Island. It seems all the tension goes away as you cross the bridge to arrive. We hope our renters enjoy the property as much as we do. You will see that it is cared for as a true home. We plan to continue to update and improve the property over time.

James and Kathy Boyd purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

8 Heath Drive is a short walk to the beach, golf & tennis. The Inverness side of Palmetto Dunes tends to be quieter and less congested even during the high seasons.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, spacious and beautiful home that allowed us to make the most out of our Hilton Head vacation. We couldn't get enough of the screened porch and the heated pool that was perfect for a refreshing dip. The house is so comfy and nicely-appointed that we didn't even mind the occasional rainy day.

Nestled among the trees and overlooking the second fairway of the Fazio golf course, it gave us just the peace and quiet we needed, plus easy access to the beach for long walks along the shore.

We'll be back!

Wonderful family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for letting us enjoy your lovely home last week! We were so comfortable there and your house offered pretty much everything we needed for the week! The screened in porch was an added bonus that came in handy, especially when it was raining...we were still able to enjoy being outside. The house was directly across the street from the rental house of my brother, sister and their families, and we were all delighted at how convenient the houses were to the beach access. I have had fond memories of Hilton Head and Palmetto Dunes since I was young, and I'm happy to report that those feelings haven't changed!

The property was beautiful! Very clean!! You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This property is in a great location with quick access to the beach, restaurants, and stores. The owners were very nice to work with, very responsive to any inquiries we had. We had plenty of room to spread out. The screened porch and private pool were fabulous and it was fun to watch the golfers! We were so happy to be able to bring our two small dogs!! We will definitely rent this house again when returning to Hilton Head!!

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at the Boyd residence and we enjoyed it even better than the 1st. The new walkway to the water hose made returns from the beach much easier and the added patio space by the pool gave us much more room to lounge while the kids played in the water.

Overall, this is a beautiful home with plenty of room and lots of upgraded features. We thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We try to keep the home up to date and are constantly improving it. We plan on converting the jack and jill bath upstairs to complete baths and updating the master bath this fall. Hope you come back to see the improvement.

Very nice house on the golf course.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house on the second tee of the Fazio golf course in Palmetto Dunes. It has a fantastic view down the second fairway from the tee. Lots of live oaks with Spanish moss, very pretty. The house has three nice size bedrooms and is in great shape. It's about a seven minute walk to the beach on sidewalks. I would rent it again. Had a great time.
