About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20-22)

This Second Row Lowcountry beauty with ocean views is located at the end of the cul-de-sac on Iron Clad in Palmetto Dunes, directly on the beach path -- 200 feet to the beach. An elevated, upside-down, floor plan with broad covered porches spanning the upper and lower floors, spacious entertaining areas, six generously-sized bedrooms (all with private bath suites and flat screen TVs), large pool and spa make this a perfect home for large family reunions or corporate retreats.

This recently re-decorated home features a spectacular open floor plan, flooded with natural light. On the main level, the newly-furnished, expansive living room and dining room with high, tray ceilings, adjoin the open well-stocked kitchen, providing ample space for adults and children to gather. The kitchen offers seating for six at the kitchen table, and four at the breakfast bar, while the dining room table seats ten. The separate den with HDTV/Cable/VCR/DVD, sleep sofa and adjacent powder room, offers a private retreat. Netflix streaming movies can be accessed from living room Blu-Ray Disc Player.

The covered upper porch accessible from the main living area provides another large gathering space for dining and relaxing. Enjoy the ocean views through beautiful palms and live oak trees while dining or relaxing in the comfortable rocking chairs.

The main level also offers two generously-sized, tiled bedrooms full bath suites. These two bedrooms each have two Queen beds and Flat screen/Cable TV/DVD.

On the lower level, four oversized bedrooms -- all with full private baths and beautiful tile floors-- are situated off a wide hall, providing privacy and comfort to every guest. The two Master Bedroom suites have a double door entry, King Beds and Flat screen/Cable TV/DVDs. The other two spacious bedrooms each have two Queen beds, private baths, and Flat screen/Cable TV/DVDs. In the hall, a wetbar with refrigerator, sink and coffee maker offer added convenience. A full laundry room is also on this floor.

The lower front porch accessible from the center hall spans the first level. This porch offers another quiet entertaining area to enjoy the company of friends and family, or a great place to read or relax overlooking the pool.

From the porch on the lower level, step down to the large pool and spa area (approximately 16x20), surrounded by patio and lawn suitable for picnicking or play. There is plenty of room to sun while listening to the ocean waves, or to enjoy a barbeque with the convenience of the nearby grill and refrigerator. The pool and/or spa may be heated upon request. The beach path is accessible through the garden gate, and it is only a few short steps to the beach.

This house has it all - location, beauty, and luxury for an unforgettable beach vacation. See for yourself in the video posted under the photo section.

About The Owner

Our family discovered Hilton Head when we traveled the beaches from Amelia Island to Myrtle Beach in 1996, looking for our favorite vacation destination. As soon as we entered Palmetto Dunes, we knew this was "it", and we have returned every year since. Over the years, our house has been filled: from middle schoolers, to teenagers, to college roommates, extended family and friends. Now, our story is filled with memories of long, lazy days at the beach, hours of rocking together on the porch reading and talking, and lots of laughter and fun playing all sorts of games. We invite you to make memories here and enjoy our beach home as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Spacious and Accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't get lucky with the weather, so thank goodness we stayed at 6 Iron Clad.

The six huge bedrooms, all with a full bath, laundry facilities, terrific common space and the Wonderful kitchen, balcony and pool made our annual Family Vacation a real treat on spite of the rain and wind. There were 16 of us and we were VERY COMFORTABLE 🙌?

Deep southern porches and beautiful landscaping

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed home in such a nice location, very close to the beach but still giving you a lot of privacy because of the beautiful landscaping. The house was clean and bug free, that elavator was such a help for this little old lady! 6 Iron Clad gave our large family lots of room to injoy our stay! Had a little problem with the garbage pickup on departure/arrival day and the management jumped right on it. Could not ask for a better experience thank you Joan for sharing your beautiful beach home!

Great time at Iron Clad

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed -- very spacious, bed configurations matched our needs, etc. It was well equipped and catered to our large party (we had 13 people). It's a reverse floor plan with kitchen and living area on top floor -- worked well for most purposes, particularly loved sitting on the top deck, only drawback is it's a bit of a trek to the pool from up there. There is an elevator, which was handy for move-in / move-out. Garage and driveway easily accommodated our 6 cars and a dozen bikes. It's right beside the beach access path, so literally one minute to get to the beach. Finally, Elaine was the easiest person to deal with ever!! Really helped us through the process, and even sent back an unsolicited check when we accidentally overpaid!

6 Iron Clad- no reason to stay anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

As a seasoned beach vacay family I must say that this house and location offered all and more than you could expect on a Hilton Head vacay. Location was perfect on the island, Palmetto Dunes is not as busy as some of the other areas but offers all you need with less traffic. Plenty of restaurants and a Kroger grocery store are within 5 minutes of the gate. The bike rental and general store were hits with everyone. Actual location of could not of been any better- says 2nd row but don't let that throw you off if concerned about walking to the beach. The walk is through the gate off pool then maybe 100 feet and you're in the sand. Was quite windy this week, steady 15-25mph most of week but house was set back enough and surrounded by trees that you never would have know how windy it was had you not gone to beach. The close proximity of the house to the beach was important, kept us from having to drag everything out to beach. Made bathroom breaks, grabbing lunch, or snacks really convenient.

The house itself was set up perfect for our visiting three families, each with two kids of varying ages 7-11; 12 people plenty of room to spare, 6 bedrooms offered space where we were not on top of each other. All had large spacious private bathrooms. It certainly could hold another handful of people without concern. We like to cook big meals for everyone, kitchen was laid out great for this. Grill out by pool worked great. Much time was spent on the upper deck in mornings drinking coffee watching the sky light up from sunrise and happy hour(s) in the evenings.

Kids absolutely loved the pool. Because it was so windy at beach (isolated weather event, not always as brutal as it was) they spent more time in the pool and they had a ball. Again, the trees and great landscaping surrounding the property made us totally oblivious to the wind event and allow us all to enjoy ourselves and get as much sun as we wanted.

Renting bikes was enjoyed by all. On the windy days we actually road inland south then came out onto beach and used wind to our advantage to enjoy the beach at low tide and get back to the house.

The guys fished off the beach every morning. Caught fish, enjoyed watching the sun come up. Wives and kids eventually made it out to find sand dollars and shells.

Mrs. Elaine, the homeowner, was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. We are already looking for a date for our group to return again, can't imagine renting another house.

Summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is great! Palmetto Dunes is beautiful and offers great amenities . We stayed with 4 other families and the 4 bedrooms with 2 double beds works perfect for families with small children , we loved that all the bedrooms were very large with walk in closets, no one gets stuck with the "small room" there all the same! We did have a few maintenance issues, (the grill was broken) but the company the owners use were very responsive. We called and they had a new grill there in a couple of hours!

I would definitely recommend this home. Besides it being beautiful and great location , the owners and property managers were fantastic to work with!

Excellent House for Large Family

  • 4 of 5

This house was an excellent house for my family, who had all come down to Hilton Head for a family wedding. The elevator in the house made it very easy for my 87 year old mother to get in and out of the house. I don't think the elevator is used very much, as it was very damp and kind of moldy on the doors inside, but that is probably because it is Summer and had been closed up. The house met our needs in all respects. There is some maintenance and updating that really needs to be done to the house, but it didn't detract from our stay there. I would recommend this house for a large family gathering such as ours. The rental company was great to work with and very good with communication.
