About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

PLS NOTE - this new vrbo reservation system is not of my making and not owner or traveller friendly in my opinion. PLEASE note that I only accept full/multiple week rentals with both checkin and checkout on Saturdays........In any event .........Discover the Moorings; the most centrally located villa complex in Palmetto Dunes. It has proximity to the beach with no streets to cross to get to the ocean. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach house will find you on the widest and most beautiful beach on Hilton Head Island. An awesome pool expansion and upgrade was recently completed.

Behind the villa--20 feet from our double lanais--is the 11 mile lagoon system where kayaks, canoes and boats can be seen daily, along with blue herons and other wildlife. When you look out of the living room window it looks like you are right on the water. The view is gorgeous and can be seen from the lanai off the master bedroom (king size bed), the living room (sofa bed), and the lanai off the guest room (2 queen size beds) as well. This villa is one of the most up to date rental villas available and also has what I think you will agree is a most relaxing view from the bedroom lanais.

The 50" flatscreen TV in the living room, and smaller flatscreen TVs in the bedrooms, comfortable beds, furniture, flooring, tiled living area throughout except the guest bedroom which is hardwood laminate, air conditioning, all stainless steel appliances, carpeting, cabinetry all with granite counter tops, TOTALLY repainted in early 2016, crown molding, European style stackable washer/dryer and plenty of pots, pans and kitchen can imagine how enjoyable it will be to stay in such a clean, totally updated villa for your next vacation.

The pool is less than 100 feet from the front door. There is a cabana house with restrooms for your convenience. Your children will enjoy a short walk to the general store for candy and ice cream and you will enjoy the short walk to pick up the newspaper and grocery items. At this same corner is the Dunes outfitters where you can rent boats and bikes. They even have children's camps for kayaking and surfing. Here you will also find the tennis courts and the Robert Trent Jones clubhouse and practice facility (and great course by the way for all you golfers!). All of this within a 5 minute walk. The biking in Palmetto Dunes is phenomenal both on the bike paths and on the beach. The short distance to the beach means returning for drinks or short breaks is easy and convenient.

The Moorings provides the perfect vacation spot with all of the requisite activities. You will love this secret haven in Palmetto Dunes with low rental rates. These villas offer security (guard house) and privacy (bedrooms on each side of the living area) along with the peaceful, relaxed environment you are looking for on your vacation.

Beautiful unit, pet friendly, so close to beach. Very private, plenty of parking. Owner easily accessible for any reason. You have your own code to get in, so you don't have to carry keys or cards. Beach chairs, cooler available, games and books too. Recommend highly.

Loved this unit!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at multiple locations in Palmetto Dunes, but this was our first time staying at The Moorings. Loved this villa. Nice Layout. Comfortable beds. Very clean. Only 350 to 400 steps to the beach. Owner very easy to work with. Will definitely book this unit in the future.

Ohio Visitor in Awe!!!

  • 5 of 5

Starting coming to HHi in 2011. Had previously rented Oceanside homes until we found this property a couple of years ago and we fell in love with it. From the ease of working with the property owner who expeditiously handles any issues to a beautifully appointed condo. The newly painted walls and updated flooring adds to the upscale feeling. The pool area is welcoming and recently renovated. We loved the proximity to the Dunes House, beach and General Store. We will definitely be sure to get our reservations in advance. This calendar seems to fill faster than others for obvious reasons. My only complaint - I didn't have enough vacation to enjoy it longer!!⛱.

I don't want to share this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We figured out that this is our 12th trip to HHI and except for a few short trips with stays in a hotel we've always used VRBO and with great success. We love the location of the Moorings complex and being a pet friendly unit really sealed the deal (Our pup is over 11 years old but played like a puppy on the beach-it was my hubby's favorite memory!) This unit has been updated and we wanted for nothing! With 3 bathrooms and queen beds in the second guest room our teenagers could share the sleep space but had privacy when getting cleaned up. We found plenty of room to spread out and the kitchen was equipped with all that we needed. We got there a little early and we able to go right into the unit and then we ended up talking to the cleaning lady and she was great too! This unit backs up to the lagoon system and the pool is right across the parking lot. We rented a beach tub and took our supplies to the beach easily on the new boardwalk. Places we love to eat are the Dune House, Guiseppe's, tried Reilly's this trip and it was good and finally tried a new place call the Lucky Rooster-sooooo good! Finally this review would not be complete without me saying how wonderful Terry is to deal with...he's fabulous at communicating all the details and truly wants you to enjoy your time at HHI. Any and all emails were quickly responded to and we got our security deposit back in less than 10 days-that's really fast!!!! Good info located in the house-local number, address, check list at departure etc. Overall a 5+++ owner and unit!!!! Thanks again Terry!

Creating family memories

  • 5 of 5

This property has been beautifully renovated and decorated. Pictures accurately capture what you will experience upon arrival. Great proximity to the beach. Added benefit of backing up to palmetto dunes lagoon system. Property was spotless upon check in.

We would recommend this property for pet owners, and families with young kids because of how close you are to the beach.

When in HH we always eat at One Hot Momma's which has awesome BBQ ribs and wings. Also love Guiseppe's pizza for eat in or take out. We are a family of golfers, who have come to love Hilton Head National golf course because of its reasonable junior rates. Also enjoy all 3 of palmetto dunes courses, but they are more expensive. We paddle boarded for the first time in HH this summer, and can't say enough about what fun it was. Also went out on a shark fishing trip with captain Chris from Hilton Head Island Tours, and would recommend him in a heart beat. We have 3 sons, 14,12 and 11, and they enjoyed every moment of the fishing trip.

We are grateful to Terry for sharing his beautiful property and for the opportunity to create wonderful family memories.
