Our two bedroom, oceanfront condo is located on the top floor of a four story complex--Ocean Dunes. It's a quiet, top floor, end unit with unobstructed views of the ocean to the north and south towards Savannah. Most of our guests are repeat visitors who have stayed with us for over 10 years.

The condo underwent a major renovation by a professional contractor and decorator and boasts travertine, granite and new furnishings throughout. This family and adult oriented complex is located on Hilton Head's widest and best beach.

Great time on Hilton Head in 409 Ocean Dunes

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week on Hilton Head in 409 Ocean Dunes and it was a great vacation. The condo is recently renovated with new furnishings and a fully stocked kitchen. Everything felt very new and clean and truly like a second home. The ocean front view is incredible and stretches for miles and there's also a nice pool view too. The location is great - we enjoyed walking to Coligny Plaza for dinner and shopping and the condo is a quick 5 minute drive into Sea Pines. It was also nice having laundry facilities onsite. We look forward to our next vacation on Hilton Head and will definitely request this condo again.

Ocean Dunes 409 – This condo has been beautifully updated and maintained. The bedrooms have a very nice Pottery Barn look and feel to them. The bathrooms have updated amenities and showers that are very clean. The kitchen and living room have a nice open feel, and the windows allow you to see the ocean no matter where you're standing. You can't beat the view from the balcony. You have 100% unobstructed views of the ocean. Since our families last trip, the pool and BBQ area has been completely redone and is very enjoyable. The beach is only footsteps away which were great since we had small kids with us (and lots of toys). You can tell the owners of this unit take great pride in making sure everything is perfect for their renters. This is our go-to condo every year and we can’t wait until next year!

Can't beat the view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Ocean Dunes 409 for a week. Even though the building is older, this unit is lovely. The bathrooms and kitchen have been updated and the entire unit is beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony is perfect. We ate many meals and enjoyed sunrises and sunsets looking out at the beach. It is difficult to find a unit on Hilton Head with an unobstructed view like this one offers. The pool is dated and a bit small. However, the beach in front of the unit is wonderful. Thank you Nancy for sharing your vacation home with us.
