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, carpeting living room and bedrooms, 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.

Running/Biking/Walking Trails and water fun.: Within seconds of this Villa, is a Running/Biking/Walking trail that winds thru the Resort and connects to a long trail which takes you out adjacent to Highway 278. 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.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. The location was especially convenient - short walk to the beach

and the pool located next door. The condo was very comfortable and well appointed.

The bike trails in Palmetto Dunes cover the entire Plantation plus the Shelter Cove area

and provide some of the best scenery on the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jim for completing a review of your first time stay at my Villa. I know you have frequently stayed in another Plantation on the Island in the past and wanted to be close to the Ocean and beach this trip. You had brought another couple who had never been to the Island before. I am very pleased that your comments indicate the change of where you stayed allowed you to "have a great time". You mentioned "the location was especially convenient" and I believe that its may be the best location on Hilton Head Island. Beach, Ocean, Pool, Tennis, Golf, Dining and Bike trail all virtually within walking distance. I appreciate your saying "the Villa is very comfortable and well appointed" as we strive very very hard to maintain the Villa with updates and comfort. Thank you again and I hope to have you return in the future. Jim

Owner's Response: I am very glad you had a great time on your getaway from the cold temperatures up North. Indeed the walk to the Ocean is short as are many activities, such as Golf and Tennis. A bike trail can be joined in a few seconds as well which provides just about as much distance as a person would desire. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I hope to have you back for a future return. Jim

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathy and Steve for your thoughtful comments about your recent stay at my Hilton Head Villa. As a previous owners of property on the Island as you are, your opinions come from an experienced background from both ownership and "staying at several places". I have a wonderful location which you called the "best choice " for almost everything the Island has to offer and its all centrally located in close proximity to my Villa. I strive to maintain the Villa as you mentioned both as "well maintained and with many recent upgrades". New mattresses, kitchen table set and full repaint of master bedroom and just small examples of very recent upgrades. Thank you for your "highly recommend " opinion and I hope to have you back again next year.

Once again, a wonderful stay at this villa!

  • 5 of 5

We love this villa! Jim keeps this villa stocked with all our needs. Since our last stay there have been updates to the guest bedroom and dining room. As always, the villa was super clean and ready for our arrival. It is also great that we don't have to bring all our beach stuff from PA as there were chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys for our use. This is the best rental in The Moorings!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, thank you so much for the wonderful review. I really appreciate you fantastic comments and highly respect your opinion knowing you have going to the Island for about 15 years, the last 3 years staying with me. That means a lot to me as I strive to meet or exceed my guests expectations all the time and you have had experience staying at the various options available across the Island. Thank you for mentioning the changes I frequently make to update the Villa, it's cleanliness which you referred to as super clean, and the extra pool/ beach items I provide to make my guests stay extra special. I strive to provide accommodations that meet or exceed your expectations and its especially nice to hear you comment "This is the best rental in The Moorings" . Thank you again and I am looking forward to having you return in 2018. Jim

Awesome Villa and Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great villa with one of the best locations on the island. You can be on the beach in minutes and are only seconds from the pool out the front door. The villa was really clean and very comfortable. We stayed for a week with our four children ages 11-17 and couldn't ask for a better place. Jim was great to work with and we would definitely stay here anytime we travel to Hilton Head.

I strive to exceed my guests expectations by providing good service and its nice to know how good you feel about my service and the Villa and its location.

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.
