About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is possibly the only rental property available in Palmetto Dunes that is a 10 minute walk (5 minute bike ride or drive) to the beautiful 3 mile Palmetto Dunes beach AND is on a lagoon with a private dock AND has a view of the 2nd hole of the Fazio golf course! We are situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a no-through traffic street at 34 Heath Drive.

From the moment you step into the vaulted entry way, you'll be drawn to our open, flowing main floor and will find one pleasant surprise after another. The elegantly appointed formal dining and living rooms offer additional living space not common to many vacation homes. You'll be drawn to the spacious family room with incredible views of your deck, patio, pool & spa. This isn't a typical vacation feels like your home-away-from-home during your stay. From the family room, you'll find a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and informal dining area. Vaulted ceilings and open floor plan give you and your guests room to spread out. Every view is spectacular! This section of Palmetto Dunes features large lots with excellent separation from your neighbors. Our lovely lagoon is home to gators, turtles, heron, egrets, woodpeckers, owls & wood storks. If you look closely and a patient, you'll have a great view of a Heron net in the tall pines directly across the lagoon from our house. Unlike most rental properties, you also have use of our garage with keyless touchpad entry. Our home is located within the security gate of Palmetto Dunes resort. The Inverness Neighborhood of Palmetto Dunes is surrounded by the 11 mile lagoon system and situated away from the busy streets in other Palmetto Dunes neighborhoods. Heath Drive is very quiet (no thru traffic) street and we are located on a cul-de-sac which allows further privacy.

Our lovely vacation home offers guests three king master bedroom suites and one queen bedroom, each with a private bath and large closet space. The bedrooms are well-seperated for privacy We also provide a full size and a twin size air bed for children. The maximum ADULT occupancy is 8. The twin fits in an alcove in the master closet with lots of room to spare! Our grandchildren love to 'camp out' there. The master suite features French doors to a private deck & a large master bath with a jetted corner tub and oversize shower with spectacular views. There is also one queen guest bedroom on the first floor. As you can see in our photos this home (3200 square feet) is beautifully furnished & professionally decorated. Our master suites have been redecorated and feature new king mattresses. Master bathrooms both have double sinks. PLEASE NOTE: maximum of 8 adults. We spend winters here and take great care to do deep cleaning of carpets and bedding. We want your family, friends and guests to have an excellent experience and are quick to address any concerns you have during your stay. We provide our guests with tons of Hilton Head and Low Country information and are happy to suggest our favorite things to do.

We welcome families & children to our home! During your stay, please enjoy our full size pool with many toys for the children. When you can tear your family away from the pool, head to the beach! Pack our tote with our umbrella,beach chairs, sand toys and boogie boards and head off to the beach. If you are up to cooking, we have a gas grille, picnic supplies and room the whole family for dinner by the pool. Bathing suits allowed!

We aere well equiped for you younger guests, and supply two pack 'n plays (your sheets), a high chair & an umbrella stroller a full size Peg Perego stroller. Fishing from our private dock is permitted. We provide family games, cards & a poker set as well as DVD, CD & VCR players. For adults, the dry bar in the living room contains a full compliment of glasses, shakers & barware. Kayak, canoe & bike rentals are nearby at Palmetto Dunes Outfitters where you can launch into the 11 mile lagoon system that offers a unique view of the Dunes as it wanders through the homes & golf courses of the resort. Kayaks cannot be launched from our private dock on the lagoon) The fitness center in the nearby Marriott Ocean Front Resort offers weekly access at reasonable rates. Beach access is conveniently located through the Disney Beach Resort or the Dunes House in Palmetto Dunes where you'll find bike racks, limited parking, decks, restrooms & a snack bar. Relax at the Omni Beachfront Resort which offers full spa services at the Ocean Tides Spa just minutes from your front door. The Coastal Discovery museum and Pinckney Island (National Wildlife Refuge) are great places to explore.

Palmetto Dunes amenities are among the finest on Hilton Head Island. This property is conveniently located to all of them! Enjoy 3 miles of spotless beach, or choose from a world class tennis facility and three championship golf courses. Unique to Palmetto Dunes also is an 11 mile lagoon system. Shelter Cove is Palmetto Dunes' deepwater access. Boat & kayak trips on Broad Creek and to many destinations depart from here. There is great shopping, scenic views of the harbour, shopping & restaurants. Summers offer outdoor family entertainment & fireworks on Tuesdays. Take the complimentary Dunes Buggy and avoid looking for a parking place. Renovations and improvements are nearing completion at the Mall at Shelter Cove. The addition of a beautiful Kroegers and Whole Foods Market, as well as many shops & restaurants, have made the Mall a great place to shop, eat and enjoy the beautiful walking paths that border Broad Creek.

We are golfers and have played most courses on & near the Island. We are happy to suggest our favorites. Palmetto Dunes often offers complimentary golf & tennis clinics, too. We know you'll love Hilton Head Island and hope you'll visit soon!

Please call the owners direct at first number listed below (cell phone) for further information. We look forward to having you and your family & friends enjoy our wonderful Hilton Head Island vacation home. PURA VIDA!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Since our family has been vacationing on HHI since 1982, it was finally time to take the leap into vacation home ownership. We enjoy all the wonderful amenities offered by the Low Country, HHI & Palmetto Dunes and look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven on earth with you and your family & guests. Wayne & Judy live in Pennsylvania and work at Sugarloaf Golf Club. Wayne is an avid cyclist and runner and this year logged over 170,000 miles on his bike and 17,000 running (lifetime). Wayne is beginning his first year in semi-retirement. In addition to her duties at the golf course, Judy has her Real Estate license, loves to cook and is an avid winemaker. Their son Patrick and his wife Michelle are continuing the family tradition of vacationing on Hilton Head Island. Together, Wayne & Judy's greatest joy is spending time with their two grandchildren Evan & Gracie. who also love to visit the beach house. Linda & Mike are from West Virginia (Wayne & Linda are sister & brother ~ Judy & Mike call themselves 'the outlaws' instead of the in-laws). Mike is a retired mining engineer & Linda is a tax preparer. Mike is an avid hunter and Linda is the decorator of the family. They spend most of their free time with their two children Christine & Michelle and seven grandchildren Aly, Bailey, Josie, Taygen, Kayla, Eric & Andrew. They recently were blessed with their first great granddaughter. Together with Wayne & Linda's parents and our family friends, we have enjoyed many years vacationing here and have been blessed with so many wonderful memories of Hilton Head.

Why the Owner Chose Hilton Head Island, SC, USA:
When we walked in the front door of this house for the first time, we were all speechless. The open floor plan, beautiful decor and gorgeous pool area were icing on the cake. This house was more than we ever thought we'd find under one roof.
