Property Details

Updated: Dec 17, 2014
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.

Great location close to the beach!

We had a wonderful week vacationing at Palmetto Tides. The house is so close to the beach. The beach access from the back yard was an easy, short walk for everyone from our 7-year-old to our grandparents. Swimming in the large piano-shaped pool was refreshing and a fun way to end a long, hot day at the beach. The home offers comfortable accommodations and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was a bit small but it was well stocked with all the cookware and utensils we needed. The weather during our stay was perfect and probably the least-humid August week we have ever experienced. The cooler temps allowed us to enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch as well as the comfortable screened in back porch. The owner was very friendly and was quick to address all of our questions or concerns. Hilton Head is one of our favorite vacation destinations and we look forward to our next visit.

Comfortable and convenient Summer Vaca!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was so pleased with the very comfortable floor plan and convenience to everything Hilton Head has to offer. The short walk to the beach and the fact we practically had the beach to ourselves was so nice. We especially loved the back screened porch that became the morning coffee place and afternoon game room. The pool got the nice morning sun that warmed it and then the shade in the afternoon made it great for the kids to swim and enjoy without worrying about the sun. Thanks again for opening your home to us and others.

Better than Advertised!

The property is great for a family trip or a couple’s getaway (what we did). We went down with two other couples, and the house was exactly what we were looking for, and far exceeded our expectations. The lay-out of the house is perfect, as the first floor offers a very large and open floor plan, making it very suitable for dinners or hanging out and playing games. The screened porch, deck and pool area offer a great retreat after a long day at the beach. The area was very private for us, as there is plenty of greenery to provide a semi-enclosed area. There is a walkway that one of the houses utilizes to get to the beach that is right behind the pool. The bedrooms are all very large and nice, with every room having a bathroom in suite, with the exception of the twin bed.

The house is located very close to the ocean, as there are only two houses in between the beach and the property.

As far as dinners go, we recommend ELA’s BLU in Shelter Cove (Great Key Lime Pie and amazing view/atmosphere).
Not only is the property very well maintained, but the owner of the property was very accommodating and helpful throughout the process. I hope to make a return trip back with my family in the near future.

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.

Located in the heart of Palmetto Dunes Resort and surrounded by countless amenities all within driving, bike riding and even walking distance. Gated plantation that offers various restaurants, three award winning golf courses and wonderful outdoor activities. Rent a kayak or paddle board and explore the 11 miles of lagoons. Charter a fishing trip for an exciting day filled with redfish and tarpon in the plantation lagoons or a trip for deep sea fishing leaving from the island. Even more convenient, walk the semi private path to the beach for surf casting. Go for a quiet bike ride around the plantation and on the beach. There is a charming general store just a short bike ride away for homemade breakfast sandwiches, ice cream, a candy bar, basic groceries, sunscreen, souvenirs and bait. Palmetto Dunes is also just minutes from the shopping at Coligny Plaza, Harbour Town and the Tanger Outlets. The island also offer mini golf and other family friendly activities. Grocery stores are also close by as are many wonderful restaurants for either cooking at home or dining out. There is so much to do in Palmetto Dunes you can't help but fall in love!

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!
