About the property

2 Large Bedrooms and 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-7

This top floor unit has been totally updated, new appliances, new bedroom furniture and bedding, new hardwood floors, and 65 inch HDTV. We continue to invest and update each year, in January 2018 we painted the whole villa and added two great swivel rockers in the living room. In January of 2017, we converted master bath into a walk-in shower with all new tile and fixtures. Also in 3rd bath, have a new tiled shower and new floors in these two bathrooms. Also all new updated tile flooring in entrance and kitchen. Comfortable bedding, new Marriott Resort Jamison King Bed in 2016 for your comfort. We added granite counter tops, three new bathroom vanities, all new light fixtures, along with fresh paint.

There are two large bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The bedrooms are split format for privacy and teenagers with different schedules. One bedroom is a king with a 40" flat screen tv, that is HD. The second bedroom has two full beds with a 32" flat screen tv and an additional sofa.

The living room has a new pullout sofa in 2016) along with a 65" HDTV and DVD player. There are two large decks off the bedrooms that are accessible from both the living room and bedrooms. These decks overlook an 11 mile lagoon system, so you can sit on the deck and watch kayakers go by or just watch the wildlife. On both decks we have heavy duty adirondack chairs(not the cheap plastic ones)

In the living area there is a dining table that seats six.

The well stocked kitchen includes a new large stainless steel refrigerator with an ice maker, new keurig mini. Off the kitchen is a third full bathroom with a brand new shower and also a washer and dryer. New heat/air unit installed Nov 2015.

Our unit is a top floor end unit with lots of privacy, but still only a two minute walk to the beach with no streets to cross. The Palmetto Dunes Beach is now better than ever, just completed beach renourishment and after hurricane Matthew there is more beach than ever before. Can take your beach chairs to the beach in the morning and leave them there all day and come back and forth to the villa as needed. You can also stop and get a drink or fish tacos at the Dunes House on the way back from the beach.

Since we love our pets and enjoy watching our english cream golden retrievers have a blast on the beach, we do offer a pet friendly condo(dogs only). However, the dog needs to be well behaved and well trained and is subject to our approval and an additional non refundable fee.

There are no keys to keep track of as we have a keyless entry system where you have your own special code for the week.

The Moorings is inside a gated community for privacy and security.

Less than a five minute walk to the Palmetto Dunes Tennis complex, Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Golf Course, Palmetto Dunes Outfitters, and the General Store.

The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center has 23 clay courts and 2 hard courts and offers many clinics, lessons, and exhibitions. Several PickleBall courts have recently been added.

There are three great golf courses inside Palmetto Dunes, Robert Trent Jones, Fazio, and Arthur Hills.

Palmetto Dunes Outfitters rents bikes, kayaks, canoes, and other water toys to enjoy during your stay. There are many great bike paths and an 11 mile lagoon system for you to explore.

The General Store is a favorite for breakfast, ice cream, icees, or about anything else you may need.

An easy bike ride or walk is Shelter Cove Marina where in the summer you can see a fireworks show and live entertainment, also many restaurants and shops. Also right across from the Palmetto Dunes entrance is a brand new Kroger to get all your needs for the week.

Our unit is #45/#46, which is a top floor end unit that backs up to the lagoon. It is one of the most private Moorings units available yet close to the beach and pool. Also with it being the top floor, you do not have to worry about hearing the people above you.

This is not your typical pet friendly rental, as we like to come as much as we can so we try to make sure we have all the things we would want to have and we continue to update. We only want to rent to those who will take care of our place.

About Julie Orem

We grew up in Indiana but have lived in Georgia the last 25 years. We like to come to Hilton Head and use our condo as much as we can. Our goal is to have one of the nicest Moorings villas but still be pet friendly so we can use and also have guests that want to keep coming back.

Julie Orem purchased this villa in 2014

Why Julie Orem chose Hilton Head Island

We have been coming to Hilton Head for the past 25 years and for the first 15 years we went to Sea Pines and then decided to try Palmetto Dunes and have been coming here ever since. The Moorings is in a great location that has great beach access and is close to everything.

What makes this villa unique

We love to bring our English Cream Golden Retrievers to the beach as Hilton Head is a very pet friendly island.

This villa is so welcoming and cute! Our family loved how there are two large master bedrooms on opposite sides for privacy. It is well maintained and very clean. Easy and close access to a large beach. So nice how you have provided chairs and some beach toys to use so no need to pack those.

Our daughters competed in a gymnastics meet that was at the Marriott. We could not believe how close we were to it! We could see the Marriott out our window! If we compete in this meet again, we will definitely be staying at your villa! Thanks so much!!

A perfect home-away-from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying in this beautiful villa and we couldn't have been happier! Lovely, comfy furnishings, everything we needed and then some, made for a perfect winter retreat for us and our furry friend, Raja. We just feel right at home here and love the Moorings and Palmetto Dunes! The Dunes House was open on the warmer days in Feb. and we met many great folks with their furry friends, too. Thanks so much, Julie and Dean, for sharing your villa with us -- we're already looking forward to next year!

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in this condo and we had our best vacation yet! There are updates to the condo each time we visit and this year the updated bathrooms were a wonderful addition to the beautiful condo. As I told the owner, when we walk in the condo we feel like we're at home right away. Thank you for letting us borrow your piece of paradise for a week. We'll be back soon, I'm sure. Columbus, OH
