1 Up Wind, a NEW Hilton Head Island Palmetto Dunes listing is your perfect vacation hideaway. Only .6 of one mile from the beach, you are barely a 10 minute leisurely walk or short bike ride to the ocean’s edge. The home's high ceilings, spacious and very open floor plan make it feel much larger than its 3700 sq. ft. There is excellent separation between the 4, first floor bedrooms (and 6 total sleeping areas) which make this a perfect home for several families, a ladies weekend, a couples weekend, men’s or ladies golf and tennis trips or a perfect destination wedding headquarters. The possibilities are absolutely endless.

You enter the home through a beautiful glass front door into a bright foyer. To your right is a bedroom with a queen bed and features a large window facing the front of the house. Across a short hallway is the large master bedroom suite which faces the back of the home and overlooks the raised deck and private pool area and looks out toward a spring fed, fresh water lake. The large master bath features a large walk in closet, two sinks, makeup area, shower and a jetted garden tub. It is also bathed in natural lighting during the day through sky lights.

To the left of the entryway foyer it a large open dining room featuring two white columns and a tray ceiling. The glass top dining room table has comfortable seating for 8 and the space is perfect for a gourmet meal or a lively dinner celebration. Adjacent to the foyer and dining room is an intimate living room space where you can spend a quiet moment reading a book, plan your next Hilton Head activity, stay in touch using our wireless internet access or simply enjoy the tropical vegetation right outside the large windows.

Adjacent to the living room is a large, open family room with high ceilings and many windows. With a 50” flat screen LED TV over the fireplace, this is the perfect location to watch your favorite Red Box movie release or a big sporting event with family and friends. The room also overlooks the raised deck and private pool area and out toward the lake.

Beside family room is a breakfast area with seating for 4 or 6 where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sunrise over the lake and contemplate another day on the island. Ready for a hardy breakfast? Just to your right is a large open, fully equipped kitchen with two service islands, just waiting for you to either pour a bowl of cereal or cook the most lavish meal featuring fresh local seafood available for purchase all over the island. This kitchen will not disappoint and is spacious enough for all your guests to gather while the meal is being prepared.

As you exit the back of the kitchen and to the right, a short hallway leads to a full bath. Further down that hall are two bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath between them. One bedroom features a king bed and the other, two twin beds. The two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home from the 1st bedroom and the master bedroom. Both rooms also have large flat screen TV’s.

When the kids get a little rowdy or the guys need to burn a little energy after an afternoon of lying on the beach or by the pool, just off the hallway leading to the two bedrooms is a separate hallway leading past a laundry room with washer and dryer, to a bonus room/bedroom above the garage. The room features a full size pool table and a 40” flat screen LED TV. It sleeps two people on a trundle bed, for those who want a private sleeping area away from the 4 main bedrooms. A 4th full bathroom with shower also adjoins the room.

Don’t spend all your time indoors. The deck, private pool and spa area can be accessed through both the family room and the master bedroom. You can enjoy a meal on the deck seating area or lounge around the pool and spa. Make sure to also take a short stroll down to the lake and enjoy the island's abundant wildlife, try your hand at fishing or simply enjoy the change of scenery in this natural setting. We have added a hammock and glider to make enjoying the lake more comfortable and relaxing.

Don’t forget to use the new Weber gas grill on the pool deck to grill some burgers, a nice thick juicy steak, local seafood or vegetables from a local market. The grill's side burner is also great for cooking Low Country Boil outside under the stars.

Take the opportunity to end one of your evenings by the gas fire pit located on the pool deck. It's the perfect outdoor setting to enjoy your Palmetto Dunes dream vacation.

It is our mission to make a visit to 1 Up Wind one of your most enjoyable, relaxing and memorable vacations, on the island or anywhere. We are local small business owners and appreciate the opportunity to help fulfill your vacation desires. We invite you to join us for a stay at 1 Up Wind and look forward to hosting your Hilton Head, Palmetto Dunes dream vacation.

NOTE: In June 2014, we painted the entire interior of the home and added new furnishings. The updates are included in the PHOTO section of our listing.

About Bill Moser

We are the Moser's and we live in Newton, North Carolina-one hour south of beautiful Boone in the Appalachian Mts. and one hour northwest of Charlotte, NC's largest city. We met at Lenior-Rhyne College in Hickory and settled in the area to raise our now two adult daughters (Katharine & Rebecca). Bill fell in love with HHI enjoying golf trips throughout the years with buddies. We were fortunate to have found our new home for vacations with our growing family and to share with our new VRBO family.

Bill Moser purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Moser chose South Carolina

We fell in love with the spacious feel of 1 Up Wind the first time we walked through the front door. It is so open, bright and welcoming. The outdoor spaces are very private and the view of the lake is quite unique in this tropical setting. Built in 1995, the home had never been rented before and offers features you usually don't find in a Palmetto Dunes vacation rental like a bonus room above the garage with pool table. Also features 6 separate sleeping areas, 5 bedrooms (one is a bonus room w/pool table & trundel bed that sleeps 2). The 6th sleeping area is a pull out queen sleeper sofa in the family room.

What makes this house unique

Open spacious floor plan; located on quite cul-de-sac, great for kids bike riding; fresh water lake so bring the fishing gear; large gathering areas to accomodate your group of up to 12 and space to spread out when you want a few quite moments to yourself; large bedrooms with good bedroom seperation; very private pool and spa location with beautiful view of the lake.

Bill was a pleasure to work with throughout the rental process. The house is open, spacious, well appointed and immaculate. The bonus room with the pool table was a hit. The patio, pool and spa were our oasis. The glider and hammock near the lagoon are a definite must do. We rented bicycles and loved our daily short and scenic ride to the beach! A bike ride to Dunes House or walk in the Beach to Coco's are a great way to do lunch. We hope to be back soon! Thanks for sharing your home with us Bill!

Gorgeous, immaculate home.

  • 5 of 5

I think the kitchen is better appointed than my own at home. They had everything we needed. The house is spotless and beautiful, comfortable and spacious. We had lots of drawer and closet space. I would definitely come back here.

Hidden paradise in Palmetto Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 1 Up Wind 6/3-6/10/17. Bill and Susan have done an amazing job at thinking of every last detail in their home so that our stay was effortless. The home is beautiful, immaculate and their location within Palmetto Dunes was great. We were able to walk to the beach and even took the car and had lunch at their suggestion at The Dunes Beach House! Whenever there was a need for a question they got back to us immediately. Thank you for sharing your home with us! This has been our best experience on VRBO and would love to return!

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 1 Upwind earlier this month. We found all of the good reviews to be true. The house is well appointed with pretty much anything you could need. This was my first VRBO experience and it set the bar high. We would definitely return to this home when traveling to Hilton Head.

Our group was two families with children, four adults and four children. We had originally had another couple wanting to rent the extra 5th bedroom with pool table but they backed out. The layout of the house was ideal – when you walk into the open living/dining/kitchen/family rooms, you can go right to two bedrooms or left to two bedrooms, so each family felt some privacy. The kitchen had several sets of everything as to dishes, glasses, pans, pots, dishwasher tabs, etc. Even multiple corkscrews and wine stops and several beer cozies. The large fridge and walk-in pantry easily accommodated both families' weeks' worth of groceries. The mini fridge was great for extra beer/wine. The bathrooms were well stocked with towels, complimentary toiletries including makeup removal cloths, and tp. There were a dozen nice beach towels. Even though we brought our own towels and used the house towels, we did several loads of laundry including the towels. Having the washer/dryer was helpful. The pool was a nice size for the two families. Easy step into access for the little ones and it went to about 5 feet deep. Could not get some of the adults to leave the hot tub/spa. We only heated the spa one time but it did get hot. We also enjoyed the game room and played several games of billiards. Plenty of seating for all inside and out.

Just an FYI, we saw several lizards and frogs, a few squirrels, but no gators.

As the other reviewers indicated, we also experienced good communication from the owners. Bill emailed instructions about two weeks prior to the trip that included a list of items included with the hosue, and several text communications throughout.

We used the Palmetto Dunes buggy several times during our trip for beach days. The ½ mile walk to beach access was about 10 minutes, but with kids and gear, we opted for the free rides. The wait varied from 3-20 minutes from the call, and they did apologize for the wait for the one 20 minute wait. The closest beach access was our favorite – no amenities, but was quiet, not crowded, and good set up. We also went to the Dunes House beach access and ventured to Coligny one day (way too crowded with young kids).
