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!

Nice house in a great location...

  • 5 of 5

We just spent Christmas ('17) week at this house. The owners kept in communication from beginning to end, and they made everything very easy.

The house is on a quiet street in the Pametto Dunes community. It's a gated community, and the grounds are simply magnificent. As stated, this was a winter trip so we didn't take advantage of a lot of the possibilities, but there are golf, tennis, bikes, kayaks, etc. available within a short walk of the house. The walk to the beach was much closer and easier than it looked on the map, and the beach was huge with beautiful white sand. The community is also located very close to lots of restaurants, groceries, and other businesses.

The house itself had a well-furnished, modern, and clean interior. The house was stocked much better than most of the rentals we have had. There were cooking utensils for just about any meal you could make, and there were plenty of basic supplies. There were also lots of little things that were much appreciated--a flashlight and masking tape were a couple that came in handy for us. Although there were just two of us, we thought it was great that every bedroom had its own bathroom, and there was also a half bath off the living room. The beds and linens were in great shape. Everything was in good working order. We were very comfortable here, and it almost felt like home after a while.

We'd love to come back in fairer weather to really get the most from this location, but our Christmas trip here served its purpose as a relaxing winter getaway on fantastic Hilton Head Island.

This home has everything you could possibly need during your stay! It is beautifully decorated and cared for!! We brought our dog with us on vacation and was so happy this place is pet friendly (and no smell of dog at all) they take very good care of the home. I would recommend this place to anyone!! Only wish it was available for my next two visits!!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved Palmetto Dunes, the bike paths are great and it is so very pretty as well as quiet and peaceful. The house is in a great location its just a short walk to the beach. We have two small dogs and it is so hard to find nice clean places that allow you to bring them. The house was very clean which is my top priority when picking a place to stay. The bathrooms and bedrooms are updated and very nice. The kitchen was also better stocked than many rentals. It has a nice screen porch that we thoroughly enjoyed as well as the golf course view. Jim the owner was very responsive and helpful.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely peaceful stay at this home. We brought our two dogs along and they had a big time checking out the new smells around the neighborhood & seeing the beach. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The smell of cleanliness hit us when we first opened the door & that good impression followed us through the week. I especially loved the location of the home; it’s central to pretty much anything on the island!

fun week in an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is equipped with everything you might need. Crews were out cleaning up after Irma made a mess. What a nice neighborhood to walk and bike thru and just minutes from the beach! The bathroom upgrades are pristine. The beds were very comfy and the sheets were soft. I would stay in this home again. Thanks for sharing your home with my family.
