About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a beautiful 4 BR, 4 Bath home that boasts comfort in every room. It is decorated in a 'family eclectic' style which translates to relaxation for all. This home sits in the gated community of Palmetto Dunes and is within an 8 minute walk to the beach or very short bike ride. As you sit on the pool deck, you can view the golfers on the 2nd & 8th hole of the famed Fazio course. Early morning and at twilight, you will frequently see deer stroll by at the edge of the golf course or through the back yard. The kitchen is beautifully updated with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The dinning room flows off the kitchen and seats 6 - 8 people easily. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths located on the first floor for easy access. Each room has its own private bath and enough privacy to suit all guests. The Master bathroom has a large jetted tub. Upstairs is a beautiful, bright room with private bath. This colorful and happy room has a charming armoire and is decorated to suit child or adult.

The family room has a large sectional sofa that allows you to satisfy your need for some private time OR allows you to sit and talk with your friends and family. The 52' TV is above the fireplace where all can view it from any spot in this large area and the sound will float through the room via the surround sound system. For the computer person, there is WiFi to keep you in touch with the world outside or just to play the games you enjoy the most. Then, when you think you can't ask for anything more, we present to you the most wonderful room of the house - the screened porch. How perfect to be able to totally relax in the comfort of a screened-in area with two ceiling fans and a large TV.

The pool is a free-form style with spa that invites you to mellow out after your busy day on the beach. This house sits on the world-class Fazio Golf Course. So, as you sit and sip on your favorite drink in your private back yard area, you can watch the golfers as they try their hand at this very challenging game. If you are a golfer, you have within Palmetto Dunes three courses - Fazio, Robert Trent Jones, and Arthur Hills. If you are a tennis buff, we have a world class tennis facility. If you are a beach person, a short walk will put you onto our 3 mile pristine beach. If you ride bikes, call our local outfitters and they will deliver and pick up your bikes. You can then ride on our miles and miles of bike paths that exist not only within Palmetto Dunes but throughout Hilton Head. Outfitters can also set you up to kayak or canoe on our 11 mile lagoon or provide surfboards for use in the ocean.

Within Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Marina there are many delightful restaurants with varied cuisine. Additionally, our Shelter Cove Marina has many great shops to browse around. Palmetto Dunes also has a GENERAL STORE which has almost anything that you can think of including breakfast and lunch, food items, ice, fish hooks, toys, clothes and novelty items, candy in jars, specialty coffees, ice cream, newspapers, etc. etc. When you need that extra loaf of bread, there is no reason to go outside our private community gates.

Come and stay with us in this exceptionally comfortable home located in this mid-island paradise.

You'll be glad you did!

About Sharon Cheney

My husband is from Georgia, but lived in many places growing up because his father was a military officer. I was born and raised in San Francisco. We met when we were both working at Naval Air Station Moffett Field, California. We were married in Annandale Virginia, where we lived for two years. We then moved to Solana Beach, California, for one year. Next we moved to Reidsville, Georgia, where we had a law practice until I fully retired in 2012. My husband still practices law in Reidsville during the week.

Sharon Cheney purchased this house in 1998

Why Sharon Cheney chose South Carolina

We bought our Heath home in Palmetto Dunes as a second home in 1998. We did 3 major remodels over a period of seven years, adding a two car garage, bathroom, pool and deck, enlarging the screened porch, replacing a narrow circular iron stairway with a fully open staircase, extending the back of the house, and reconfiguring and completely remodeling the kitchen. We enjoyed our time here so much, we chose to retire here and bought a primary residence in PD. We decided to rent our Heath home rather than sell it, because we like having the space for gatherings of our friends and family when they visit.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the Inverness side (South Gate) of PD because it is a bit less busy than the Mariner's side (North Gate). We love being mid island on Hilton Head with easy access to everything of interest on the island not to mention easy access to 6 to 8 excellent restaurants within one to three miles from our front door. We love Hilton Head's warm weather. Sea breezes tend to cool down our southern summers, so temperatures here are always cooler than inland. Winters rarely hit freezing.

Amazing stay in Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful backyard and view of the golf course. It was very private with a short walk/ride to the beach. The trails were amazing for biking or hiking. We did not need for anything. The kitchen and bathrooms were completely stocked and then some. This was our first time renting through VRBO, we couldn't be more pleased. Sharon was just wonderful and communication was great from start to finish. We highly recommend this lovely property.

Great time in a great house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Heath Drive house. Kitchen was well equipped, plenty of room, and great layout. Easy walk to the beach, great view overlooking the Fazio course, and all the amenities of Palmetto Dunes.

Fantastic Vacation from Happy Hoosiers

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at 22 Heath Drive. A very spacious 4 bedroom/4 bath home with plenty of room for everyone (We had 4 adults and 1 toddler). The pool was wonderful (although the water was a little cool for early September) and the screened in porch was the best - enjoying the outdoors without the worry of bugs. A very peaceful setting with the added benefit of having deer going through the yard daily. The beach is close by car, but a little too far to walk when traveling with a toddler. Plenty of golf courses on the island.

They provide clear instructions for trash, tv, pool, etc. There were plenty of bath towels, however, more kitchen towels were needed. They also need a ceiling fan in the first bedroom - it got quite warm in there. All of the other bedrooms have ceiling fans. Also, you need to bring a supply of kitchen trash bags. But none of these items would prevent us from returning. Our family had a GREAT time.

I would highly recommend this property for a peaceful and fun vacation.

A beautiful, well appointed, clean, and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Heath house. It was a perfect size for our family. The kitchen was equipped with all the tools you can imagine. The backyard pool was the perfect place to hang out morning and night. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be back to this vacation home again.

Wonderful home, pool, and golf view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family which includes 4 adults and 2 grandchildren loved our stay at this home. The home had everything we needed. The upstairs open space was wonderful as a playroom which included an extra bathroom and 2 beds/couches that we lounged on and played with the children. The pool area, the living room which includes a desk area, the screened back porch, and the master bedroom had beautiful views of the pool, shaded area, and golf course. The pool area was so secluded that you didn't realize you had neighbors. The master bedroom and bath were large, and the other 2 main floor bedrooms were a good size and each had a bathroom. The house was furnished with comfortable furniture and the kitchen came with everything needed. The home was clean and well-maintained, and the owners were very nice and responded quickly when we had one question. We loved this home and it is a favorite of the places we've stayed at HHI. We loved our stay at this home and its location!

Zip line nearby. Take day trips to Bluffton, Beaufort, Charleston, and Savannah. The beach is a short walk away. It takes about 8 minutes to walk east on Heath, take a left on St. George, and go over the pedestrian bridge that crosses over the lagoon to Ocean Lane. This takes you to the oceanfront hotels where there is public access. The pedestrian bridge, not shown on the map above, is located across from and between Flagg and Troon on St. George.
