Beautiful Home on a Beautiful Lagoon

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for families, 4 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. The home has a large kitchen and dining room. Heated pool and hot tub were awesome during the cold days. The view from the back is beautiful! A short walk to the beach in a gorgeous neighborhood. A wonderful getaway home to relax in.

Five Stars is not enough! The house is beautiful in the pictures but honestly the pictures do no justice of how breathtaking it is in person!

We almost never left the backyard, between the pool, hot tub, grill, lake, feeding turtles and even spotting a baby alligator a few times there was always something to do! Before booking we were hesitant that there may be mosquitoes because of the lake and were concerned about the walk to the beach but there was absolutely NO mosquitoes, the walk to the beach is very short and biking to the beach takes no time at all!

This was our first time in Hilton Head and thanks to the experience we had at the Novaks home we'll definitely be coming back! We can't recommend this rental enough!

We were a group of four couples and this home was perfect! We each had our own space and bath which was a deciding factor in picking this home. The proximity to the beach was excellent and only a 5-10 minute walk. All the "boys" and one of the "girls" were big into tennis so every afternoon they had a private class with the pros right in Palmetto Dunes. We rented bikes in PD and they delivered and picked them up based on our check-in/check-out dates. The kitchen was probably one of the most well-equipped kitchens I've ever seen in a rental property. We even had a local chef come in one night to cook us a 3-course dinner! All in all, a wonderful stay in a very comfortable and welcoming home. We hope to come back again next year! Thank you Rosina.

A Terrific Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many properties both in the US and also abroad during the last 20 years. Turtle Beach House is one of my absolute favorites. I've rented this property 4 times and each time I look forward to returning again. The lagoon setting is lovely, the house is comfortably furnished, and the kitchen is extremely well stock with utensils. One of the best things about it is working with the owner, Rosina Novak. Any question or concern is immediately answered. She is the very best property owner I have ever dealt with.

All in all, this is an excellent rental property.
