About Julie Keeton

We are from Virginia. We visited Hilton Head Island in 2006 and fell in love. The beauty of the wide beaches, palm trees, spanish moss and live oaks trees compared to no other in our travels. It is a wonderful family spot. We have two small boys and enjoy the easy access to the beach. Our homes are both great for small children. We hope you enjoy Hilton Head as much as we do. I am sure this is where we will be for years to come.

Julie Keeton purchased this house in 2006

Excellent location! Comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The house is dated but very clean and maintained. It is snuggled deep in the beautiful neighborhood and is very close to the beach. We loved having the pool in the yard. The owners were very nice and quick to resolve an issue we had come up. We had 8 women stay here for a week, so the 4 full bathrooms were a huge bonus!

Good location, needs some TLC!

  • 3 of 5

The location of the property within Palmetto Dunes is great. It has a nice deck and pool area, but the home needs a great deal of updating. The kitchen is small and difficult for several people to work in at once. It is not stocked well -- knives are dull, silverware mismatched, blender is broken, coffee maker is old and the filter basket keeps popping open. The house does have 4 full bathrooms which is nice, however, the toilets do not flush well and sometimes take 2 or 3 tries. Bathrooms are outdated but otherwise functional. Some of the lights were missing bulbs. There are beach chairs and a beach cart to use which is nice. Upstairs loft area was nice to have for reading or watching TV, especially if you are in one of the bedrooms on the second floor. The owners responded promptly whenever we emailed them.

Really excellent. We loved it!! 😍

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderfully relaxing holiday here at Palmetto Dunes. This house was charming and very comfortable. My kids aged from 19 down to 11 loved it as wifi was excellent (which was so important to my eldest who had on line college assignments), really good TV with premium cable, lovely bedrooms & bathrooms. Our house was equipped with a choice of two barbecues. We opted for the easier gas option and had many family barbies on the deck by the pool - bliss. There was excellent shopping to be had at Tanger outlets which weren't to far away. Nearby Kroger, Publix and Wholefood stores were excellent for groceries and ready cooked meals. This house is in an excellent location and is just a stone's throw from beach. I would highly recommend it.

Great location but house is terribly runned down and not kept up properly. .

  • 1 of 5

The house photographs well but the inner workings of the house is falling apart. The furniture is thread barren with excessive chipped paint.The kitchen floor is on a slant. The kitchen appliances are broken and rusty appliances. Walls were dirty and wooden doors/trim were dilapidated.The bathrooms are old and dated. (Toilets don't flush properly and toilet seats are stained and weathered.)The pool is dingy with faded tiles. The pool furniture was less than welcoming. There is a collection of zero gravity chairs that lack stability and were quite rusty- not to mention not safe for grandparents or small children. Family room tv tv is extremely small. None of the television accessories were set up for usage and dated /broken. This property is less than inviting...

Owner's Response: The home was inspected by a professional prior to rental this year. This house is well kept and maintained. The carpet has been changed in the past two years and was cleaned prior to guest arrival. The whole house was painted inside within the last four years. The roof was replaced in the last two years. Both a/c units were replaced in the last one and half years. The deck around the pool was just painted. The toaster oven, microwave, dishwasher and the dryer were replaced in the last year. The pool chairs were new in 2015 and we added more during this week. The decks have had most of the boards replaced and stained last year. The rust spots we assume you are talking about are on the right side of the fridge and were very small and may have been caused by someone splashing something caustic. The spots have been removed. The inspector did not see the spots. No one has ever noticed that the kitchen floor is on a slant. There is a large brand new oversized couch and chaise and two new fabric chairs put in this Spring. A new 46" LED Smart HDTV has been put in the home. The only furniture that has some wear on the finish is a nice wicker chair. All toilets flush properly. All bathrooms have been kept cleaned. The first floor bath was tiled two years ago and the toilet replaced. The pool was clean, but the border tiles do need to be polished and this was passed along to the pool company. There were scuffmarks on the wall going upstairs where people have left marks with their bags. This has been cleaned.

Great location, needs lots of updates

  • 2 of 5

Great location, layout & outdoor space. House was very clean when we arrived. However, home needs major basic updates. Had broken towel racks, toilet paper holders, closet doors. WiFi didn't work all week,even after 3 phone calls. Don't plan on using sleeper sofa due to poor condition. We had to go purchase air mattress for guest to sleep on. No broom in any closet and vacuum just made a bigger mess. All rooms need a fresh coat of paint.

Too bad house and contents were not in better shape because location and layout are really nice.

Decent rental - could use a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in Hilton Head. The location was fantastic. Very close to the beach and wonderful biking paths. The house is a little dated and the furniture had a little more wear and tear than I expected but overall it was comfortable. The TV in the main living area is very small....fine if you're just watching the morning news but if you plan on watching a lot of movies at night, you'll prob be disappointed. The kitchen was adequately stocked with plates and cups but the cookware/bakeware is woefully inadequate if you plan to do any cooking. The frying pans are warped so they dont sit evenly on the surface and the one and only baking sheet is bent. So plan on bringing more of your own cookware. If you plan on eating out alot then its no big deal. Overall, it was satisfactory and we had a very enjoyable stay.
