Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
Newly Updated 4br/ba Beach Home With Secluded Pool - Sleeps 10

Palmetto Tides is the perfect place to enjoy the many unique amenities of Hilton Head Island, all within the comfort and serenity of our perfectly located beach retreat. As the new owners of this wonderful home, we are committed to providing families an unforgettable vacation experience.

Located within the private Palmetto Dunes Resort, this third row beach home comfortably sleeps 10, with newly furnished indoor and outdoor living amenities, a spacious pool and best of all a secluded beach path leading right out of the backyard just steps from the ocean, without ever crossing a street! Perfect for families and large groups, special occasions or 'just because' get-aways. We hope you'll share the experience with us as we build new memories into the history of this wonderful home away from home.

Our home has a spacious, newly furnished open concept living area with vaulted 2 story ceilings, complete with a comfy wrap-around couch to fit even the largest families while viewing our new 50'' flat screen hdtv on family movie night.

Cook a delicious family meal in our well-equipped kitchen while friends are seated at the roomy counter enjoying locally purchased lowcountry sangria. Enjoy home cooked meals together in our great dining room or move outside to the screened-in porch to enjoy a meal overlooking the large pool area on a beautiful South Carolina evening.

On the first floor, you'll also find a comfortable bedroom with twin beds for the kids, complete with wall mounted flat screen hdtv, as well as a beautifully appointed master bedroom with king sized bed and in-suite bath, along with another first floor bathroom with direct access to the outdoor pool area.

Stepping outside, enjoy our elevated deck with a view of the private and spacious pool area with a large, piano shaped pool. The pool is equipped with plentiful patio furniture for everyone to enjoy comfortable days in the sun in the secluded backyard. Flip on the underwater lights to set the mood for peaceful and serene summer evenings listening to the ocean while grilling up the day's catch on the barbecue.

Moving back inside, walk up the open staircase to two upstairs bedrooms with king sized beds, 36' flat screen tvs with beautiful views overlooking the pool and patio and private in-suite full bathrooms.

For beach lovers and families alike, the highlight of the property is the direct, backyard access to a semi-private beach path which leads directly to the pristine Palmetto Dunes beaches, just a minutes' walk away and for the kids - without ever crossing a street! Wake up early and walk your cup of fresh brewed coffee the 100 yds to the beach to witness the picturesque Hilton Head sunrises, or stroll down in the evening to enjoy a twilight beach walk and one-of-a-kind sunsets. No matter the time of day, the walk to the beach could not be easier. When you return, rinse off at the outdoor shower and take a dip in the pool.

For those who love the lowcountry nightlife, take the short stroll to the Dunes House Beachfront Restaurant and bar to enjoy a drink, a meal and some live music as the tide goes out. Ride bikes on the beach or take a trip to the General Store to enjoy some soft serve or replenish the groceries for tomorrow's home cooked meal. Close out your evenings after a sunset walk on the beach while enjoying a lowcountry classic - the covered front porch complete with porch rockers.

Just a short ride away, you'll also find three critically acclaimed world class golf courses for the golfers in the family. Adjacent to the golfer's paradise you'll also find plentiful tennis courts as well as direct access to 11 miles worth of man-made salt water lagoons. Enjoy kayak and canoe excursions, as well as chartered fishing trips to catch the massive redfish and elusive tarpon that call the lagoons their home. A short ride away families can enjoy shopping, restaurants, indoor/outdoor activities at the newly renovated Shelter Cove and world renowned Harbour Town.

This property offers the perfect balance between serene vacation relaxation in the comfort of a charming beach house and the outdoor activities and nightlife of Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head Island. Fully equipped with wireless internet access and premium cable television to keep your family connected and entertained!

Join us for your next vacation and make our home your beach retreat for years to come!

About the Owner

Hilton Head Island has always been a special place for our family. For over 30 years it has served as a winter getaway, dating back to the 1970’s when our late grandparents from Detroit, Michigan owned and enjoyed their own HHI property. The island provided us with years of wonderful childhood memories. Days were filled with playing on the beach collecting shells and sand dollars, feeding turtles, spotting alligators and shopping in the charming shops at Coligny Plaza.

After many years and additions, our family returned to Hilton Head In May of 2013 and fell in love with the island all over again. Our generation began to relive old memories, rode bikes on the beach while others fished, hit the links on one of the many championship golf courses and ended each day with a truly matchless Hilton Head sunset.

When we came upon the amazing opportunity to bring 96 Mooring Buoy into our family, we saw a chance to share our love of the island with others and we are committed to helping you create the generations of Hilton Head memories we cherish so much.

Good location. Lovely home.

  • 5 of 5
The home was everything the listing described and more. We enjoyed our stay. We were a little disappointed with the pool the day we arrived - it was not ready for a couple of days. However, the owner immediately took action and went above and beyond to handle the situation. We would certainly stay there again. It was very accommodating for our large family with young children. We were able to rent a gate to block off the stairs, a crib, and a high chair! Highly recommend.

Amazing Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at the Palmetto Tides house was one of the best we have taken. Let me begin with the property. The house's layout is perfect for family getaways. The bedrooms are spacious, have their own bathrooms, and have enough separation to provide some privacy for family members if necessary. The living area and kitchen are open and comfortable. The absolute BEST part is the pool in the backyard. It is large and private with plenty of room for swimming and lounging poolside. We paid to have it heated, and it was worth every penny as we swam several times each day. Now, the other part of what made the vacation so wonderful is the resort the house is set on. With a gorgeous beach, restaurants, bike rentals, golf, and so much more right at your fingertips it was a dream. It truly was the best of both worlds, with the convenience of a resort but the privacy and comfort of a home. The owner was extremely welcoming and wonderful to deal with. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and look forward to vacationing at Palmetto Tides again!

Great Family Home for Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 weeks vacationing in this beautiful home!! This house was perfect for our family- spacious, very clean, well-furnished and a perfect location in Palmetto Dunes!! We loved that it had a deck, a big front porch and a screened-in porch!! We especially LOVED the pool!! The piano-shaped pool was the perfect size. It got lots of sun all day, with the perfect amount of shade in the afternoon, was surrounded by trees for plenty of privacy, and had lots of room around the pool for hanging out and enjoying the sun!! The pool was also cleaned every day! The path to the beach is literally right off of the pool area, and the beach is just seconds away - an easy walk for everyone! The owners were great to work with and very accommodating! We look forward to returning and staying here again!!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was absolutely ideal for our family's stay! It truly felt like a home away from home. It was very clean and cozy while still having a very spacious common area, conducive to our large family (7 adults, 1 child). The back deck, pool deck, screened-in deck and front porch gave us ample opportunity to escape from each other if necessary (LOL!). A short walk to the beach, made it easy to go back to the house if you forgot something or needed a break from the sun. A little too chilly to use the pool this time of year but it was nice to have the option to heat it. I would absolutely recommend this home to my relatives and friends! Looking forward to booking our next vacation for next year!

From the Owner

Our beach retreat offers the perfect balance between secluded vacation getaway and exciting, activity filled beach excursions nestled in the heart of the most self-sustained and well equipped plantation in Hilton Head. Play golf in the morning at one of 3 world renowned golf courses, spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool and take an evening beach walk to The Dunes House for a drink and some dancing on the shore. A morning bike ride on the sands at low tide is only a minutes' walk away.

From the Owner

The perfect location, a charming interior and the traditional South Carolina lowcountry home with front porch rockers for relaxations, a massive pool and patio area for sun-bathing and a short stroll to the beautiful beach along the semi-private path. Kids never have to cross a street, walks to the beach to enjoy a sunrise or sunset are so easy they become a daily routine, and the amenities offered by the Palmetto Dunes Resort make it hard to leave! Walking to the beach along the semi-private path leading directly out of the backyard, it feels as if you are walking through a secret garden straddled by South Carolina palms. Sitting in the spacious living room and enjoying family movie night in front of the floor-ceiling stone fireplace or taking an evening drink outside onto the screened-in porch, the property immediately feels like home and is the perfect place for families to reunite. Life slows down in Palmetto Dunes, and the simple pleasures of a traditional backcountry home make the little things that much sweeter!
