Stay in the best Hilton Head Resort! Palmetto Dunes was ranked No 23 in the WORLD as the Best Family Resort by the readers of Travel and Leasure Magazine in the Nov 2013 issue!
This newer design, custom built home in Palmetto Dunes was completely renovated and is only a 9 minute walk to the beach. The home is meticulously maintained and has a layout and size that provides a great gathering place for large families and friends.
The setting: Located in a quiet yet convenient area of Palmetto Dunes, this home has a short 9 min, beautiful, walk to the beach. It also has a similar length walk to the new Kroger grocery store in the opposite direction. Hop on a bike and cut the travel time down to a few minutes! The front of the home looks out to a beautifully landscaped front yard with a perfect, stately live oak surrounded by graceful azaleas. Additionally, across the street is a small undeveloped area providing more tranquil views of this peaceful setting. Functionally, a circular driveway serving a two car garage provides ample parking. The back area of the home is south facing and open providing tons of sun, (a rarity in Hilton Head), It also features perfect open views of the new pool, professional landscaping, and a 15-acre spring fed lake that provides fishing and abundant wildlife watching, especially all the incredible birds! The back yard setting alone will make you want to come back!
The pool: The pool is newly constructed and much larger than the average pool found in the area. It features an 8 foot deep end and an 8 inch deep sun shelf or kiddie area. It is graced on the back side by a 4ft wide shear flow fountain. Other highlights include a soft water/salt chlorination system,(no chlorine smell, red eyes, or irritation), colored LED lights for night time fun, and a large tile dolphin in 3D! Additionally, FREE heating,(when temp is above 50F), and cooling is provided, as needed, by a heat pump. Complimenting the pool is a large lawn area, a large paver pool deck with plenty of pool furniture, and an upgraded/renovated 12x30ft deck with built in seating, table and chairs for 6 with an umbrella, and a gas grill.
Living areas: An abundance of large living areas provides ample space for multiple activities. Entering inside, you’ll find a bright open floor plan starting with a large tiled entry with 14ft ceilings. Flanking the entry is a large formal living room providing a great place to visit or escape the activities of the great room. An adjacent formal dining room provides seating for 10.
The huge, fun, great room is perfect for watching sports or movies and features 14ft high ceilings, a large built-in entertainment center with a 60 inch smart TV, and a triple french door opening to the deck.
Overlooking the great room is an expanded gourmet kitchen featuring stainless appliances including a large double wall oven, and a five burner cooktop, as well as new cabinets and granite. The sizeable adjacent breakfast room seats 10 and is a great place to view the lake and watch the egrets, osprey, and herons in the morning.
Sleeping: Three separate bedroom areas make this layout ideal for multiple groups and privacy. There is a master/family suite that features double doors opening to a sitting area. Off this room is the master bedroom, the master bath, and a small bedroom with two twin beds. The master BR is beautifully furnished, has a 50in TV and a triple french door opening to the deck to enjoy the views. On the opposite side of the house are two more bedrooms. The first has a queen bed and full bath and the other bedroom has two sets of bunks beds, a trundle, and a full bath. The second master bedroom is on the front side of the home and is the only room on an elevated level providing quiet privacy. It has tropical Tommy Bahama furniture, (king bed), huge windows with great views out the front and a full bath with a beautiful tile shower. Lastly, a new queen sleep sofa is provided in the living room.
The beach: There are several ways to enjoy the beach. You can walk or ride a bike to one of the regularly spaced beach access paths. We have provided approximately twelve adult bikes and two children's bikes at our home for your complimentary use*. You can also drive to the the complimentary Palmetto Dunes Beach Club which provides parking, bathrooms, outside showers and snack shop/restaurant. It is located near the south gate and is free for guests. Additionally, there is a complimentary Palmetto Dunes shuttle bus that will take you to the beach and back! All you have to do is give them a call to arrange a ride.
We are confident you will love this home and will want to come back again!

Best house ever!
We are a group of women who come to HHI every April. This was the first time staying here and we can't say enough good things about this house. Wade and his family did a great job renovating it (be sure to look at the renovation photo album). There is a ton of space. This house easily accommodates 2 families without feeling crowded and each family can have their own suite, if desired. The pool is the largest and the sunniest we have ever had and the free pool heat is a true bonus. The kitchen was well stocked and has 2 ovens! The bikes were a huge hit! You can easily walk/bike to the beach and the grocery store.
The house doesn't supply beach towels but we knew ahead of time and threw them in our suitcases.
We will definitely be back.
Multi-generational family vacation
What a great house, layout, and location for us to share a family vacation during Spring break! From Easter sunrise service, to the great pool, to a short walk to the beach, to family bike rides, there was a little bit of everything for everybody ( all 14 of us, from ages 7 to 74). The house was wonderful and had everything we could ask for. Magnificent view from the back deck overlooks the pool and lagoon - one of the nicest views on Hilton Head! Definitely one we would look forward to again in the future. Thanks!
Well equipped home, wonderful outdoor area, great pool.
Lovely home with great living space. The kitchen was well equipped, nice outdoor space with a great pool. Short walk to the beach. Our only issue was pool maintenance early in the week. They drained half the water, we had to refill, and the water never warmed up enough to use the remainder of the week. The owner was apologetic but not much he could do.
Really enjoyed our stay. The owner was very responsive and answered our questions. The house is very well maintained and laid out. Great location. Close to everything but still quiet and serene. Highly recommended.
Great home perfect for the family
This home was perfect for a special week with our two adult children and their families. There is plenty of private space, modern amenities, beautiful pool and yard overlooking a lagoon. It is a reasonable walk to the beach and all of Hilton Head is within easy access. The home was clean and comfortable. There were plenty of pool and beach toys. We couldn't have been more pleased. We'll be back again.
AWESOME!! The Anderson's is beautiful and very welcoming.
We hope to be back next year.
