About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 8); screened in porch and fenced backyard

Located in West Wilson, this designer-decorated home is in a perfect location to walk to MONTAGE Palmetto Bluff, the golf course or RT's Market. What makes 5 Rockingham Street unique is the fenced-in backyard which was originally designed for the family's grandchildren to keep them in a safe, protected area. There are two king size beds in the downstairs master bedrooms; both with a separate tub and shower setup in the bathroom. Upstairs is a queen bed and the fourth bedroom has two twin beds and a crib. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has their own bathrooms for privacy. The kitchen and living area are open spaced and designed for entertaining and having everyone together for a memorable vacation.

The backyard also has its own personal fire pit in case you wanted your own s'mores party instead of walking over to the River House for s'mores later in the day. Both are available for your enjoyment. There is a gas grill as well as a charcoal grill in case you desire one over the other. The amenities, as part of the Recreation Fee, include the Canoe Club family heated pool as well as the River House adult pool, tennis/croquet pavilion, kayaks and access to all the fitness facilities.

Why spend money renting from Montage when you can enjoy a beautiful home for less?

5 Stars for our Family of 5 at 5 Rockingham

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (and small dog!) enjoyed a wonderful Christmas week at 5 Rockingham in Palmetto Bluff. Arlene, the property manager, is exceptional, so welcoming! The house was perfect, very clean and upscale with so many nice amenities including SONOS, an outdoor fire pit, indoor fireplace and screened porch. The location is superb and we really loved Palmetto Bluff (please note that a few resort facilities are reserved for members). We love to travel and rent VRBOs and found this home to be particularly nice with very comfortable beds and high end linens. We would gladly return to this property!

Another wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had another great week at 5 Rockingham. The house manager, Arlene, was there the first day to welcome us and tell us all about the new Montage development at Palmetto Bluff. Arlene is incredible: very friendly, responsive, and keeps the house very clean and neat. This is our fourth stay in this house so it feels like coming home. My grandchildren love the pool, the treehouse/zip line/swings, the nightly s'mores, and riding bikes everywhere. My two sons played golf twice and absolutely love the course; we all had a delightful lunch at the clubhouse before one of their games. We didn't see as many alligators this year much to the children's chagrin!

Arlene came by to tell us goodbye and to check on everything. Another grandson is being born so hope the house can hold one more!!

Owner's Response: Marcia, I think I read this review, not only to my husband, to anyone I crossed paths with tonight! Thank you so much for acknowledging my attentiveness and writing such kind words. I know you have been renting for years but I totally enjoy seeing you each time and you are beyond respectful to the house which makes YOU a dream guest. I absolutely hope to see you all next year; PLUS that crib on site will come in handy :) Arlene

5 Rockingham is the BEST!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this house and the attention given by Arlene. First time visitors to Palmetto Bluff and will be sure to come back again! The house was every bit as described....perfect for a 40th birthday celebration for my wife. We visited with three other couples and the space was perfect.....all of the rooms are large and bathrooms are all very new. The backyard was perfect for grilling, smores, etc. And the property has SONOS inside and outside. The house sits perfectly located to all essentials...RT's, Wilson Lawn & Racquets, basketball courts and the village is a 3-minute bike ride. Arlene's suggestions and expertise of the property made the trip so much fun.

Perfect house if you want to bring your doggies

  • 5 of 5

This house allows dogs and has a fenced yard - just what we were looking for. In addition, it has lots of room, nice furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen. We loved the location - lots of privacy but an brief walk to RT's and the heart of the village. Palmetto Bluff is beautiful with may southern touches. We'll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review! I love the fenced in yard especially for that reason. I will see you all back in 2018! Arlene

Great location and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in great shape with comfortable beds and furniture. The location is perfect as it is within walking distance of the village, but set out just a bit. Arlene is so helpful and welcoming!!! She even brought us a stick of butter so we would not have to rush out for that one item on our first evening settling in!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Gary for such a nice review. You all looked like you were having such a good time so I didn't want you to have to leave and get butter. Why pause the fun, right? Thank you again and I hope to see you all again in the near future. Arlene

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were in Palmetto Bluff for a family wedding so all our adult children and their spouses were along. This property was perfect for us! Four bedrooms, each with a private bath, as well as a spacious kitchen/dining/room/living room area where we were all able to congregate. Not to mention the screened in outside porch that was great for a late night chat. Since it was hot when we were there, we didn't use the fireplace or fire pit but I can imagine how nice they would be in cooler weather. The house is in wonderful condition (other than a broken gate hinge) and is beautifully appointed. It was like living in a designer showhouse! We loved it. It was extremely convenient to the general store (across the street) and within an easy walk of Buffalo's restaurant. We rented a golf cart (my husband has mobility issues) which worked perfectly for us. We only used our car once when we left the property. The wedding we attended was on the square by the old resort building and chapel. It was a spectacular setting, especially with the moonrise over the water. Everything was perfect. And we had the best rental agent you could ask for! Arlene Flick met us at the house when we checked in, explained everything about the house and the resort, and was constantly available for any questions we had. She was extremely responsive and a delight to be with. Overall, it was a wonderful experience for all of us. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a comprehensive review. I think anyone can get the feeling of how close the house is to the chapel which is so important when renting for a wedding. You all were a really fun group and I am so glad the house worked out so well for everyone. Thank you again and I really hope that I see you all back here again. Arlene

Car: recommended

Outside Palmetto Bluff is an independent retailer that specializes in outdoor activities for individuals and families. The activities may be for an hour (paddle boarding, kayaking) or an all day adventure (tour Dafuskie Island or an all day water excursion for the kids). I highly recommend this company and they are located right near the boat house in Palmetto Bluff.
