About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Moorings property is by far the best rental buy on Hilton Head. You will not find a less expensive rental property in a major resort development like Palmetto Dunes that is this close to the ocean. Our two bedroom, three bath townhouse is 75 yards to the beach, and overlooks the on site pool. The short distance to the beach enables you to come and go to the beach for soft drinks, snacks, meals, etc. The rental property is part of a small complex of townhouses that are located behind a guarded security gate. We've renovated the kitchen with tiled floor, Granite counter tops and tiled backdrop, new carpeting throughout, crown molding, 3 re-furbished bathrooms with new marble tops and regularly freshly painted Villa. The Villa is maintained very clean, fully furnished including three TVs, cable, DVD and VCR. New air conditioner was installed. The property is maintained by our private staff. A recent guest emailed upon arrival to say 'Perfect' and ''can I buy it'? You'll love it too!

Secure WIFI available in Villa as well as at the pool.

Services and value : You will find me to provide timely and honest responses to your questions. We are 90 seconds to the Ocean and the Villa is always in wonderful shape. You will not find a location so convenient to the Ocean, Tennis, Golf and a swimming pool with Restaurants and jogging/biking trail near by. Free Dunes Buggy shuttle to area locations. Most everyone who rents the Villa will always try to return because its that good a value. Why stay further away from the Ocean and drive to the Dunes Beach House parking area when you'll be staying closer than you will park?

And added in the living room is a 51 inch Samsung full HD 1080p TV with wide color enhancer 2. Also new with this TV is a SAMSUNG HD Video, BLUE RAY Disc/DVD Player with full HD 1080P and 24P True Cinema.

Island guests can enjoy over 45 miles of public pathways and nature trails. Bicycle rental discounts are available through my Villa rental. The white sandy beaches have hard packed sand that makes navigating a bike a breeze. Other interests may be kayaking, canoeing, sail boat para sailing, or deep sea or party boat fishing. For a relaxing approach, you may find that dolphin cruises, kids cruises, sunset dinner cruises, sailing cruises or even Savannah gambling cruises may be more in your vacation goals.

Good value and great location!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for an New Year's getaway to Hilton Head Island, and we weren't disappointed. The location is ideal for a quick walk to the beach, to the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Club, the General Store, and bike rentals. And you get up to 2 hours a day of free tennis, as well as discounts at the bike and water sports shop. Plus, Palmetto Dunes is close to so many shops and restaurants with the Shelter Cove areas just across the highway so you don't even have to do a lot of driving around the island for dining. Plus, the swimming pool is just at the bottom of the stairs to the villa.

This villa was nice, spacious and fully furnished - you can cook and bake up a storm if you wanted with the fully stocked kitchen! And Jim was so very thorough in his communications about the villa, the area and everything we needed to know during our stay. The only negative about the villa is that it is rather dated in décor, carpet and bedding. But we would definitely consider staying there again, and would highly recommend Jim as a rental-owner to work with. Thanks Jim!

Great location, comfortable stay😊

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is perfect! Hop skip and a jump to the beach, right next to the pool and walking distance or a quick bike ride to the general store, a few resteraunts and to the tennis courts. Beautiful neighborhood in Palmetto Dunes great for a stroll or bike ride. Quick easy drive to multiple grocery stores and shops. Comfortable condo with everything you need to feel at home and the 3rd bathroom with a shower was a bonus having 3 teenagers with us over Thanksgiving! Jim is very pleasant to deal with and goes above and beyond and the supplies at the rental like laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, coffee, trash bags go a long way to make the stay a little extra special and convenient! I have no complaints about this place and wouldn't hesitate to stay again! Thanks Jim😊򒠠The Sayward Family

Owner's Response: Thank you Jennifer so much for the wonderful review. Being away from home during the Thanksgiving week period, I tried very hard to make your stay feel at home home. You highlighted many of the amenities I offer, in addition to a fantastic location in close proximity just about anything that you most families would enjoy. I feel you said what we offer very well and am grateful for all your very positive comments. You indicated you would not hesitate to stay with me again and I look forward to serving your needs should you desire a return to Hilton Head Island. Thank you again.

Great villa near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We actually stayed in Jim's lovely villa in September last year (2015) as part of a road trip starting in Charleston and finishing in Fort Myers (FL). I've been meaning to write a review ever since!

We only stayed for 3 nights but wish we'd been able to stay longer as we didn't really have a chance t fully explore the area. We loved being so close to the beach - just a minute's stroll . It was also an excellent base for visiting the outlet stores - something we English people love to do!

Jim was a delight to deal with throughout the booking process. He offered loads of advice and recommendations for what to do and we're to eat during our stay. The villa was exactly as described - really comfortable and welcoming. Jim even called us on the day we arrived to make sure we'd made it there safely.

We'd definitely like to come back and stay for longer next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review. Traveling from England and making multiple stops to different cities had to be difficult and I tried very hard to help make your stay at my Villa EXCEED your expectations. I am so glad to have you stay with us and you were my second guest from England to have stayed with me so far..Hope to have you back for a longer stay someday as you suggest might happen. Thank you so much. Cheers

We have stayed at this villa many times and we enjoy our stay just a little more every time we visit. Location is the key to an enjoyable vacation and this place is perfect. Centrally located on the island. Very short walk to the beach and bike paths that will take you anywhere you want to go. Did i mention the pool is next store. Very convenient. Villa comes equipped with the latest technologies and all the furnishing you need to enjoy your stay. The owner provides detailed instructions on checking in and using all the facilities . This is his home away from home and you can tell that he cares about making sure you enjoy your stay.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you very much for the wonderful review. Care and concern for my guests to have a care free stay is one of my top priorities. I do everything I can to do preventative maintenance, provision the Villa with quality products and communicate with my guests throughout the preparation process so they are well prepared to have an exceptional stay. I feel the location of the Villa is also a real winner and The Moorings is ideal for almost everything you would like to enjoy, during a wonderful stay on Hilton Head Island. John and Chandra thank you and come back again soon.

Loved the condo! Seconds to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and its proximity to the beach! Seconds away from the ocean (and for us, The Dunes outdoor restaurant and bar which is right on the way!) We appreciate the extras provided, like dishwasher soap, trash bags and paper towels and were impressed by the care and personal touch provided by the owner. We look forward to visiting again, soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Aline and Randy. I appreciate very much your comments about your experience with your stay at my Villa. I am particularly pleased because I am aware you have stayed at other Mooring's Villa's and Beach Villa's and can compare your experience with your stay with me, with others in the same area.

Ocean is 90 seconds away from Villa
Car: recommended

This Villa is truly 90 seconds from the Ocean, adjacent to a pool and adjacent to the Marriott Beach and Golf Resort. Tennis and two golf courses are 2 minute drives. A walking/biking/running trail is also seconds away. The location of this Villa makes it ideal to those with small children as you are closer to the Ocean than those who stay further away and have to drive, park and unload your car. Lunch at the Villa is a short 90 second walk away. Those who have conferences and meetings at the Marriott, love this fully furnished Villa as they can spread out and enjoy all the comforts of home, and only be a short walk away to the Marriott. A two minute walk to your two hrs of free tennis daily. If you try staying at this Villa, you are certain to want to return as have many of our current renter's. Heavy cleans was accomplished April 01, 2013. I believe you will not find a cleaner Villa in the area. A 51 inch wide screen TV added 12/01/11.Secure WI FI avail. in Villa and at pool.

Other Activities: Outlet shopping, Pier fishing, deep sea fishing, Dolphin watching, kayaking or canoeing in our 11 miles of lagoons. Discounts available for Canoes and Kayaking. In Villa you can view streaming NETFLEX, HULU and other option using your pass code.

Also, free HBO on demand.

Golf: Golfers enjoy five Champion Courses within Palmetto Dunes resort. Arthur Hills has an impressive 4.5 rating while the other four are rated four stars. I make discounts available for all three PD Courses. Also, the resort at times has offered a multi round pass. Please check when making your first golf reservation and it must be paid for prior to your first round played.
