Why Gordon and Karen Barber chose Hilton Head Island
Our family vacationed in Hilton Head and rented homes in Palmetto Dunes for about 6 years before we purchased 18 Mooring Buoy. We found the area to be an ideal vacation spot for families especially with children and/or grandchildren. This location is private yet within walking distance to world class golf course, world class tennis facility and much more.
What makes this House unique
Location. Location. Location. We are a 2.5 minute walk to the beach, 2 minute walk to the PD tennis and pickleball court center, 3 minute walk to Trent Jones Golf Course and 3 minute walk to restaurants. The ocean, private pool and spa are magnets for all. We enjoy bike rides throughout Palmetto Dunes, boating on the lagoons, tennis, grilling outside and dining in our favorite restaurants. We provide bikes, kayaks, corn hole, putting green, screened porch, private sun deck, private heated pool, SPA and every kitchen utensil you can imagine.

Great place to stay with kids!
This place is perfect with kids & plenty of room for the whole family. Loved how close to the beach we were! I highly recommend this place!!
We loved staying in this home. It was very short walk to the beach. It had a great kitchen with everything you need. It had bikes and kayaks. It was very clean and we loved the neighborhood.
Relaxing and quiet
This house is a short walk from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was excellent to work with. We plan to return.
Home was well appointed and very convenient to all locations as advertised in the listing. Owners were very easy to work with and very prompt in answering any questions concerning the property. Would definitely recommend!
