Amazing Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
This was my first Spring Break as a college student. I am so glad we [me and my friends] picked Hilton Head! Mr. Lou was great to work with. Their home is in an excellent location for the beach, restaurants and local scenery. The set up of the home was awesome, especially the large dinning room table and the open living room. The pool area was perfect for grilling and keeping our "college mess" as my mom would say outside. The home was clean, stocked and ready for us to just chill and get some much needed R & R. The rental contract was straight forward and easy instructions to follow for getting in the gate and home. We all agreed we want to do this again as an annual event. I appreciate that Mr. Lou trusted his beautiful home to me and my college buddies--I hope we didn't let him down. Thank you so much, we made a lifetime memory---your home made it the best weekend.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
December 2014 This was our first trip to HH and it was wonderful. Lou and Anne's home was the perfect place. A wonderful location and home for a family gathering. We had family ranging from 5 to 60 and they all loved it. The house is beautiful, well stocked, great set up, with a wonderful living room/dining room for the family to gather. A quick walk to the beach. Although we did not utilized the pool or hot tub as the weather was a bit cool the backyard set up, with the pool, hot tub and grill is great. A terrific place in HH to spend time with your family or friends.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
September 2014. Just had our very first week long visit at this beautiful property. We were a family of eight adults, and two children ages 3 and 10 months. I am a stickler for cleanliness and this house was VERY thoroughly cleaned. We were provided with ample bedding, spare blankets, towels, beautiful kitchen name it, the house offered it. The layout of the house was excellent for our entire family. Children's rooms were located down a hallway to keep out the adult noise from the open floor plan of the kitchen, dining and living rooms. The owners were very patient and understanding with my questions as I planned this trip seven months in advance. That's a loooonnnnnnggggg time for this owner to be answering all my questions via emails, phone conversations, etc. The pool, hot tub, and patio were cleaned twice during our visit! On our first full day there, we had a problem with the outdoor grill. Within six hours of my phone call, a brand new grill was purchased, assembled, delivered and set up for our immediate use. There was absolutely no disruption to our day or planned meals. I have no doubt that this quick response to a concern is very typical for the owner of this house and Goode Vacation Rentals. They did everything they could to accommodate our large group from providing a highchair, extra beach chairs, etc. This location was our absolute FAVORITE rental home and we hope to return very soon.

Well stocked Oasis!

  • 5 of 5
This is the 3rd year our family has gathered for a Summer vacation, but the 1st for us in HHI. My husband and I have come with his family to HHI for over 30 years, & we just knew the Richardson Family would fall in love with Palmetto Dunes!

As others have mentioned we sorta hate to share this amazing place. The home is beautiful, clean, well stocked with all the necessities - especially in the kitchen, & ideally located <3 minute walk to the beach. Everyone loved the fact there are no stairways in or out of the home. This made for greater ease with car loading and unloading. We also have a 2.5 year old that we were not constantly worried would fall while moving throughout the home. We have stayed in 3-4 story homes with poorly stocked kitchens, lacking adequate pots, pans, and silverware. This home had details we didn't expect including clean dish towels and pot holders.

The pool is stunning & has an exceptional amount of living space for the 9 of us to gather after a long day on the beach. We enjoyed grilling out, riding bikes throughout the plantation, shopping at the outlets, and Coligny, and gaming at Adventure Cove. The men enjoyed several of the golf courses on the island including Old South and the Ocean Course at Seapines. We dined at Hudson's, HHI Diner, and Big Bamboo Cafe.

The weather was picture perfect! The Richardson Family plans to make 42 Mooring Buoy our annual Summer get-a-away. There simply is no way to sum up the beauty, adventure, and tranquility that this home provides. A well kept oasis indeed!

Thank you for sharing this amazing home with our family. 10 out of 10.

"I feel like I'm at home..."

&#034;I feel like I&#039;m at home...&#034;
  • 5 of 5
Let me start with the end in mind...just a lovely home with all you could ask for, close to the beach and exactly what this family was looking for in a vacation -- having said that, we hesitate to write this review, for fear that others will discover this extraordinary oasis.

We were fortunate enough to stay here for two weeks in July (2014) - Palmetto Dunes is comfortable - lovely surroundings and easy walk/bike ride to all amenities, upscale - yet not pretentious, loaded with what we wanted to do - beach, bikes and golf!, and peaceful - day time on the beach was busy but not overcrowded (unlike the area closer to the Dunes House and beach-side condos).

Lou and Anne were absolutely wonderful to work with -- from conversations prior to securing the rental, to a phone call regarding what we should expect when we arrive, to a conversation after we arrived to ensure that everything met our satisfaction -- my only ask was for a bit more sun...ultimately, Lou delivered on that too! ;)

This perfect beach home is only a 5 minute walk to the paradise...while we didn't want to leave the beach each day, coming back to a this home made it bearable. Our daughter, Katie, a school teacher readying for a new year, was able to take a deep breath and recharge. Our niece, Maggie, who is a sophomore in college, said "I feel like I'm at home"....we agree Maggie...thanks to Lou and Anne, for two weeks, we were at home - in paradise.

awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5
Had a GREAT time! 11 ppl (7 adults & 3 kids). Perfect sized house for us. No one had to use sleeper sofa. Beautifully decorated. Amply supplied (more than most). Nice big dining table. TVs in every room. The kids (AND adults) loved the pool! Short little walk to beach. Nice area. The owner was very responsive to all my questions and very easy to work with. And yes, I WOULD recommend the place! Only wish we were still there!
Nearby attractions: as we went before Memorial Day, some things were not "up & running" yet, BUT .... we very much enjoyed riding bikes on all the bike paths. We went to Hudsons Seafood House on the Docks for our seafood night out. Then enjoyed walking around Coligny Plaza.
