About Palmetto Sands Vacation Rentals

My name is Paula Bennett, I am a Property Manager here on Hilton Head Island.

Palmetto Sands Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2006

Why Palmetto Sands Vacation Rentals chose North Forest Beach

We love the Forest Beach area, the beach is fantastic & the home is close to Coligny Plaza. We like the thought that there are not any streets to cross on the way to the beach & it is a private area.

What makes this house unique

Spacious rooms, floor plan and the furnishings are very nice in the home, the perfect home for families and friends to gather. All the bedrooms have a private bath, the 6th bedroom has a sleeper sofa and is also considered the second family room. The home is spacious, three beautiful levels, a private pool and hot tub, plenty of parking and so close to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The office staff is always quite friendly and helpful. We have stayed with the company for the last 7 years and found this home with the elevator and have stayed here the last 4 years. The home decor' is beautiful and the home is so comfortable, very spacious. Everything was perfect as always, we recommend this home and the company to everyone. We wish the days could be longer, hate we have to wait until next year to come back. Thanks again for a wonderful stay, 5 stars all the way!

family time

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at 20 Knotts Way. The house was amazing! Our group included my 92 year old mother in law, who loved the afternoon shaded decks, and 2 yr old and 5 year old grand daughters, who loved the pool. The 100 steps to the beach was great. The home allowed all of us to find separate spaces. The house was immaculate upon arrival. We asked that the pool be heated,once we tried the water, and our request was answered in 20 minutes on Sunday evening. That service is outstanding. We would recommend this home to anyone who wants to be close to the water, the bike path, etc. We hope to stay there again next year.

A wonderful visit with four generations

  • 4 of 5

The house was a perfect fit for our space, beautifully decorated and as advertised, just steps from the ocean. The staff at Palmetto Sands were exceptional at making sure we had all that was needed; a couple of extra blankets and replacement for a broken a chair. Some of the appliances were a little worse for ware in the kitchen, but it was well supplied. The third floor pull-out sleeper sofa was exceedingly uncomfortable and not fit to be considered a bed...I mention these things to help make it an even better place to stay as we did have a beautiful gathering, and it is a gorgeous place to spend time together. We would definitely consider coming back!!

Beautiful home

  • 3 of 5

This was our first time at this property. The pictures were beautiful so we had high expectations. Excellent location and easy walk to the beach.The house is big and roomy, but makes ineffective use of space. Our group consisted of 12 adults and 2 children. The house is marketed for 14-16 people. Two rooms had two full beds but could have easily accommodated queen size beds. The mattress in the 2nd floor double bed room was worn.. The third floor pull out mattress had worn out springs and our guests were so uncomfortable that we needed to purchase a "blow up floor" mattress. The third floor bedroom also had stained pillows. The pillows were replaced.The 3rd bedroom was very hot during the day and took a long time to cool off at night. Both ice makers didn't work, they sent a repairman out but was unable to repair them. He stated the ice-makers needed parts and this was his 4th time out to fix them. The refrigerator worked but is too small for 16 people. There is additional fridge in the garage but not convenient. The washer and dryer worked but again too small for 16 people. Overall, we had a good experience but the house has the space but does not have equipment to comfortably accommodate 16 people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us, the home is over 6200 square feet and we all think the floor plan is quite nice for a large group. All the homes in the area were decorated by a professional decorator at Havertys and the furniture bed sizes were picked out by her. The frig in the kitchen is a subzero that was put in at the building process and the cabinets are built for only a certain size, no option for a larger frig and that is why the owner put an additional frig in the garage. The owner also put a ping pong table in the garage which the kids and adults will both enjoy. We did receive some calls during the guests stay and we did respond to everything. The third floor definitely does get warmer during the day especially when the garage door is left open and there are 24 foot ceilings so the interior doors do need to be left open to get proper AC flow in the home during the heat of the summer. The homeowner did have the stand alone icemaker replaced on the first floor and the upstairs unit was repaired, we also did supply ice for the guests. We have not had any complaints regarding the bedding or sleeper sofa prior to this guest or after this guest. We have many repeat guests every year at the home and most of our guests leave the reviews on our company website, just google 20 Knotts Way. We feel that the review is really not fair, the home does deserve more than a 3 star which is apparent as we have never had lower than a 4 star and most are 5 star reviews on this home and the guest reserved the same home for next summer prior to departing. If I stayed some where and only rated it 3 stars I would not book the same home again, not liking so many things about the home.

Everything was perfect except a little consideration.

  • 4 of 5

If the heated pool is working for winter time, it will be 5 star without a hesitation. A huge house, everything else was perfect. Def will come back and recommend this home to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for stay with Palmetto Sands for your long weekend and we are so glad that everyone had a great time! Unfortunately we were not able to heat the pool which was explained to the guest prior to booking their stay. The weather would not permit heating the pool due to our cold temps during the winter, the pool is heated by a heat pump. Not being able to heat the pool had nothing to do with the pool heater as it is only one year old, it was just too cold outside. The guest did not pay to heat the pool and it was not a possibility, just glad they loved everything else about the home and we look forward to seeing them again soon!

Location is fantastic, only 100 steps to the beach & 1 mile to the downtown area of Coligny Plaza. The home is spacious, there are almost 6,000 square feet, plenty of parking, private pool and hot tub that can be heated for an additional cost. This lovely home is nicely decorated, the bedrooms are large and this is the perfect home for family and friends to gather on the island to relax and enjoy each others company.
