About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This spectacular second row, five bedroom home at 6 Flotilla is located directly on the beach path and is situated in the quieter, less crowded Mariners section of Palmetto dunes. It is only steps to the beach. (The house icon located on the Google map does not show the home's exact location on Flotilla. It is located next to the beach path). The one and one half story home with a main living section and two wings is inviting.

The main section contains the living room, dining room, kitchen and marble half bath/powder room. The entrance foyer opens to a spacious living room with back walls of glass overlooking the pool and deck area. Recently redecorated, the living room seating is comfortable. The room features a fireplace and entertainment area with TV/VCR/DVD. A separate nook overlooking the pool holds a game table and two chairs. The room allows for large gatherings yet offers small spaces for relaxing and enjoying conversation.

The dining room is open to the living room and has a marble table and eight chairs. Sliding glass doors from both the living room and dining room lead to the pool and deck area allowing natural light and spectacular views.

Adjacent to the dining room is the gourmet kitchen with a Thermador oven and warming drawer, microwave, Jenn-Air cooktop,and Sub Zero refrigerator, dishwasher and granite counters. The granite kitchen counter extends into the dining room offering a great way to serve family and guests. An eat-in breakfast area with a table and four chairs overlooks the pool.

The left wing of the home contains the master bedroom with a king size bed, chest, and armoire housing a TV. A sliding glass door opens to the pool and deck area. The master bath features a marble floor, Corian countertop with double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and a separate oversized marble shower. A toilet and bidet closet are also part of the bath. The skylight provides for natural light and privacy.

Also in this wing and over the garage is a second bedroom with two queen beds, a desk, TV, and a private bath. This room has a sliding door that opens onto a deck in the front of the house. Chairs and a chaise lounge offer a comfortable place to enjoy a drink and listen to the ocean.

The laundry room with sink and the two-car garage are also located in this wing. A side door off this wing leads to two outside showers and the beach path. The home is next to the beach path. A few steps and you are on the beach.

The wing to the right of the living room contains the other three bedrooms and two and one half baths. Along the hallway is the powder room. Next to the powder room is the third bedroom with two twin beds, a TV and a sliding door that opens onto the rear deck and pool area. The fourth bedroom has a king bed, TV and chair and private bath. The bedroom is open to the vanity area with a Corian counter and double sinks. The bath has a small Jacuzzi tub. The fifth bedroom has two twin beds, and access to a full hall bath. Ceiling fans are located in all bedrooms and the living room.

The pool area, with heatable pool and spa, is amazing. It contains multi-level decking, and an outside table with umbrella and chairs. The backyard is surrounded by a wall to give privacy but with an open feel. This home offers a wonderful place for families and friends to gather, whether spending a day on the beach or enjoying the privacy and safety of your own pool. Set in the low country of Hilton Head Island, this vacation spot is close to the island activities while offering the seclusion of a private retreat.

About The Owner

We are a family of 3 who live in a cold climate most of the year and enjoy escaping to Hilton Head Island.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Carolina

We have been coming to Hilton Head for many years and were looking for a home that would be very close to the beach and allow us to have family and friends join us on vacation. This home has far exceeded our expectations in terms of location and livability. Our daughter can't wait to come on holidays where we all gather to relax and enjoy the beach, bike rides and being outside.

What makes this house unique

Being right on the beach path is such a plus for us. There is only one house between us and the ocean and we can hear the waves from our front deck. The layout of the home is great with a large, open family area that never feels crowded. The home has trees all around creating a very natural feeling. The back area is surrounded by a wall making the pool area very private.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I stayed at 6 Flotilla for a large family vacation. This home was a PERFECT fit, and a fantastic lay out for us. It gave us the privacy and quiet we needed for small children, as well as a great entertaining space for game nights and dinners. The beach access proximity was also EXCEPTIONAL. Being so close to the beach made our days and trips to the shore very enjoyable. With a large family in the home and multiple small children who needed various nap times it was an easy walk to and from the beach as needed. The lay out of the home also provided the ability to have uninterrupted nap times while the adults could still go about their daily activities. The pool and deck area is spacious enough for our entire family to be out an enjoy it without feeling crowded. The main living area is very spacious and the dining area also incredibly spacious for large family meals. This home had everything we needed for our family vacation!! We would definitely recommend this property to others!!!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! The layout of the house was perfect for our family. We never felt crowded yet we still enjoyed each others company. Definitely a plus being next to the beach access. We enjoyed the pool in the evening after cooking dinner in the spacious kitchen/didning area. The house is well furnished. I would definitely rent this home again.

Perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Every year, my family gets together at Hilton Head -- and we've usually split between a house near the beach and a villa further out as we're a total of 4 adult couples and 2 kids -- and were worried about being too on top of each other. But this year, we wanted a house all together to celebrate a birthday and 6 Flotilla was PERFECT! Plenty of space to spread out and have quiet time (or send the kids to bed before the adults :) and plenty of room to congregate. The photos do NOT do the size of the main living area justice. It's huge! Dining table was plenty big and kitchen roomy enough for multiple folks to help prepare meals. Pool/hot tub were fabulous and the beach is incredibly close. We hardly took a cooler with us because it was so easy to pop back to the house for a refill! Kitchen had all the large pots we needed for a low country boil -- a first!! We will be back for sure!

Carol and Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this home in the fall of 2013, and just booked a return stay for early fall of 2015. The home is beautiful and worked extremely well for our family. The layout offers plenty of room to be together, and also provides privacy in the bedroom areas. The home is well furnished and the location cannot be beat!!! The beach is just steps away! We are so looking forward to returning this year!!!

Fabulous property and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving at 6 Flotilla, bringing together four families, with 12 adults ranging in age from 15 to 83. The house is huge, with plenty of room for all of these folks without having to pile on top of one another. The kitchen was fully equipped, and had everything we needed to cook a full Thanksgiving dinner. The beds were comfortable, and baths were more than adequate. The weather did not cooperate for us to be able to extensively use the deck area, but it is also very large, and we would have been out there were it warmer. The beach is literally steps away. Highly recommend a stay here, particularly if you're doing a large gathering!

Your home was everything we anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home you have and it met all of our familiy's requirements. The rooms were large and having plenty of bedrooms and baths is always important. The locations is easy to find and beach access is easy and just a very short walk. Everything worked just fine and the open dining room/living area was great for spreading out with our extended family. We plan to come again and the folks at Island Getaways were easy to work with. I highly recommend your home for both a peaceful getaway or summer beach vacation for a large family. everything was spotless and very clean. thank you!
