If you are looking for a wonderful vacation spot in the beautiful Palmetto Dunes gated community, you have found it in our villa we call our “Happy Place!” Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort was listed by Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the top 25 “World’s Best Family Resorts.” We are located on the first hole of the exquisitely maintained Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Golf Course, which is widely renowned for its open, inviting layout and spectacular views. It is just a short walk or bike ride, surrounded by live oaks and palm trees, to the 3 miles of expansive private beach.
This handicap accessible 2 BR/3BA end-unit villa on a cul-de-sac sleeps up to 7 people. Enjoy the Master Suite on the main level with a king bed, the upstairs bedroom with a queen and a single, and the great room with a sleeper sofa. The master bath has been renovated with new vanity and shower. The upstairs bath features a tub-shower combo, while the bathroom off the great room has a step-in glass shower. We recently updated with wood floors in the entry way and great room, tile in the dining area and kitchen, and new carpet in the bedrooms and stairs. There are double doors between the great room and the bedrooms so you can have privacy in the evening after getting the kids down to bed.
The entry way leads into the great room with a sleeper sofa, love seat and 2 reclining chairs – a room perfect for reading a good book or watching TV. The dining area, which easily seats 6 people, is open to both the great room and the fully equipped kitchen. The laundry room (with full-sized washer and dryer) off the kitchen makes your stay even more convenient. There is a 48-inch flat-screen TV in the great room and flat screen TVs in both bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom has a small private patio perfect for your morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. The loft area has a large desk if you need to have a quiet space to get some work done with our high-speed Internet. Our villa has lots of natural light with sliding glass doors to a small garden area with a birdbath. Also, enjoy going out the back sliding glass doors to our peaceful back porch with a new Weber gas grill on the golf course. One night a week in the summertime you can enjoy fireworks right from our back porch.
We recommend bringing your own or renting bikes at Hilton Head Outfitters right down the street and riding your bikes everywhere. This is a very family-friendly community and has miles of bike paths. You can also rent beach or fishing gear, or kayaks/canoes to explore the unique 11-mile lagoon system that winds its way through 3 spectacular golf courses, or schedule surfing lessons, water skiing or fishing excursions. We are also steps away from a pool and a nice bike ride to Alexander’s for a fantastic meal or across the William Hilton Pkwy to Shelter Cove. From April through September, the free Palmetto “Dunes Buggy” will shuttle you anywhere around Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Harbour.
There are shops, restaurants, and tennis inside Palmetto Dunes. If you enjoy tennis, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is the ultimate tennis vacation destination. It is ranked among “The 50 Greatest US Tennis Resorts” by Tennis Magazine and is ranked in the Top 25 in the world overall by Tennis Resorts Online.
If you enjoy shopping, there are stores and boutiques galore all over the island, as well as two Tanger Outlets on the other side of the bridge.
We hope you enjoy your stay in our Happy Place as much as we do. We have created so many memories with our family here. It is a perfect location for a family beach vacation, golf weekend, girl’s weekend getaway, or a winter retreat. Handicap accessibility includes a master on main with a shower with a safety bar inside and outside. Let us know if you have any questions!
