About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)



Welcome to 2 Long Boat, a spacious, four-bedroom, four-and-one-half bath, nearly 4,000 square foot, 3rd row, Palmetto Dunes home where no detail has been spared. The beautiful Atlantic Ocean and wide beaches await you just steps away on the private end of Palmetto Dunes, Travel + Leisure Family's Number top Family Resort in the USA and Canada for 2009. Palmetto Dunes has three championship, 18-hole golf courses, 26 tennis courts, restaurants, shopping and its own marina at Shelter Cove.

This is a non-smoking and pet-free home. The large living room is in the center of the first floor and is decorated with beautiful new furnishings, including matching sofa, love seat and oversized chair. The living room has a fireplace, a new 40 inch Sony Bravia flat screenTV with full HD service, a 5 disc CD/DVD player, and stereo system that plays throughout the first floor of the home, including on the back porch. You will enjoy preparing meals in the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with breakfast bar which seats four. A comfortable keeping room adjoins the kitchen, complete with a loveseat,chair, dining table for four and new 32 inch flat screenTV with full HD service and a DVD player. The separate dining room has a glass table that seats six and is located near the kitchen for easy serving.

The living room, the keeping room and the first floor master bedroom all have French doors which open to the stone patio and private heated pool and jacuzzi area. The pool is amply sized, heavily screened by landscaping, has all new pool furniture and a gas grill for your family cookouts. The shaded patio also has all new patio furniture, including a table with seating for six, and ceiling fans. It is the perfect place to relax after your beach walk or bike ride!

The first master bedroom suite, which overlooks the pool area, has a king-size bed with new bedding, TV/DVD, and its own huge master bath. The tiled bath boasts a large jetted jacuzzi tub, a walk-in closet, separate vanities and water closets, sky lights and a very large glassed-in shower with two shower heads.

The second master bedroom suite is alone on the second level for ultimate privacy. It also has a king-size bed with new bedding, seating area with sofa and 2 chairs, TV/DVD, walk-in closet and its own private bath with separate vanities, jacuzzi tub and glassed-in shower. If two couples are sharing this home, no one feels like they slept in the 'second class' bedroom!

The other two bedrooms are upstairs on the third level and are both very generously sized. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed with new bedding, 2 closets, flat screen TV and DVD player and private bath. The fourth bedroom is perfect for the kids - it has twin double bunk beds and sleeps four in a large room. It has a flat screen TV and DVD player, separate closet and its own private bath.

We have 2 rollaway beds (stored in the closets of the 3rd and 4th bedrooms) that can be used in the kid's bedroom or anywhere else you may need to use them.

Other features include cable tv throughout, wireless high speed internet access, a two-car garage, extra refrigerator in the garage, elevator for elderly or handicapped guests, and a large laundry room with full-sized washer, dryer and utility sink.

Our Long Boat home is beautifully decorated, has high ceilings, hard wood floors,window treatments, designer touches and an open, airy floorplan. A 3rd row home no more than a two-minute walk to the beach, it is your perfect family vacation spot for years to come. There are no streets to cross to get to the beach.

All you need to bring are your beach towels! There is an extra charge to heat the pool and jacuzzi--be sure to inquire about this if you are interested. (Heating the pool in the summer is not necesssary.)

Come see why we love our home. We know you will too!

average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

Location and beach access great. Amenities were super. Friendly, helpful owner contact a real plus.

  • 5 of 5

This house location was very nice. Far enough away from main thoroughfare to feel secluded yet close enough to have convenient access to shops, stores and restaurants. This house had everything needed and wanted for a family & friend vacation of age 2 to 64. I have never had such kind and helpful contact with house owners. Island Getaway made it easy and the frequent weather updates and specific information during hurricane Florence was very reassuring.

Beautiful home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 2nd week of September 2014 here with our family that included our two adult children, their significant others, and our 18 month old granddaughter (She LOVED IT HERE!)

This home was perfect for everyone! Like other reviews stated- the pictures don't show just how lovely and spacious it is! We loved the pool and hotub. And getting to the beach was just as described- a very short easy walk.

Nancy was great to work with. Very helpful and made sure we had all the details straight before we got there. We have spent many vacations (at different beaches) but this place was really the one that stands out! Can't wait to go back next year!!

Perfect for multi-family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our getaway was a small, quaint destination wedding in Hilton Head, SC. This house was perfect with lots of room to entertain and house family members. The pictures of this house do not do this house justice! All of the bedrooms are nicely decorated, are quite spacious and have their own large private bathroom. The pathway to the beach was incredibly convenient and only took a min or two to get there. This house is located in Palmetto Dunes, which is in the middle of the island (beach side), and was extremely easy to get to many restaurants, grocery stores, and other amenities the island provides.

The owners were extremely accommodating to our needs. Our family kept saying, "This is how everyone should get married! This is a dream!" We sincerely cannot wait to be able to come back to visit soon!!

8 member family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and two children staying in this home and absolutely loved it. The pictures do not do it justice. the kitchen area looks really small in the pictures, and I was a little hesitant to book based on that. But it's huge and has TONS of cabinets and storage. The dishes, glassware and flatware are really nice and plentiful. Everything matches, which is rare in a rental property. The only thing I would have liked was an extra coffee maker. We have several who drink coffee, and not everyone likes the same brew. the master bathroom is the biggest I have ever seen in my life. there are two master bedrooms, and all of the bedrooms have their own private bath, which was a plus. The pool is very nice and the home is a very short walk to the beach. The path starts right in the back yard, and you don't walk on or cross any streets. The dune area to the beach has no steps, unlike any we have ever rented. That was really nice not having to lug heavy beach equipment up or down any stairs.
