1 Up Wind, a NEW Hilton Head Island Palmetto Dunes listing is your perfect vacation hideaway. Only .6 of one mile from the beach, you are barely a 10 minute leisurely walk or short bike ride to the ocean’s edge. The home's high ceilings, spacious and very open floor plan make it feel much larger than its 3700 sq. ft. There is excellent separation between the 4, first floor bedrooms (and 6 total sleeping areas) which make this a perfect home for several families, a ladies weekend, a couples weekend, men’s or ladies golf and tennis trips or a perfect destination wedding headquarters. The possibilities are absolutely endless.

You enter the home through a beautiful glass front door into a bright foyer. To your right is a bedroom with a queen bed and features a large window facing the front of the house. Across a short hallway is the large master bedroom suite which faces the back of the home and overlooks the raised deck and private pool area and looks out toward a spring fed, fresh water lake. The large master bath features a large walk in closet, two sinks, makeup area, shower and a jetted garden tub. It is also bathed in natural lighting during the day through sky lights.

To the left of the entryway foyer it a large open dining room featuring two white columns and a tray ceiling. The glass top dining room table has comfortable seating for 8 and the space is perfect for a gourmet meal or a lively dinner celebration. Adjacent to the foyer and dining room is an intimate living room space where you can spend a quiet moment reading a book, plan your next Hilton Head activity, stay in touch using our wireless internet access or simply enjoy the tropical vegetation right outside the large windows.

Adjacent to the living room is a large, open family room with high ceilings and many windows. With a 50” flat screen LED TV over the fireplace, this is the perfect location to watch your favorite Red Box movie release or a big sporting event with family and friends. The room also overlooks the raised deck and private pool area and out toward the lake.

Beside family room is a breakfast area with seating for 4 or 6 where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sunrise over the lake and contemplate another day on the island. Ready for a hardy breakfast? Just to your right is a large open, fully equipped kitchen with two service islands, just waiting for you to either pour a bowl of cereal or cook the most lavish meal featuring fresh local seafood available for purchase all over the island. This kitchen will not disappoint and is spacious enough for all your guests to gather while the meal is being prepared.

As you exit the back of the kitchen and to the right, a short hallway leads to a full bath. Further down that hall are two bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath between them. One bedroom features a king bed and the other, two twin beds. The two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home from the 1st bedroom and the master bedroom. Both rooms also have large flat screen TV’s.

When the kids get a little rowdy or the guys need to burn a little energy after an afternoon of lying on the beach or by the pool, just off the hallway leading to the two bedrooms is a separate hallway leading past a laundry room with washer and dryer, to a bonus room/bedroom above the garage. The room features a full size pool table and a 40” flat screen LED TV. It sleeps two people on a trundle bed, for those who want a private sleeping area away from the 4 main bedrooms. A 4th full bathroom with shower also adjoins the room.

Don’t spend all your time indoors. The deck, private pool and spa area can be accessed through both the family room and the master bedroom. You can enjoy a meal on the deck seating area or lounge around the pool and spa. Make sure to also take a short stroll down to the lake and enjoy the island's abundant wildlife, try your hand at fishing or simply enjoy the change of scenery in this natural setting. We have added a hammock and glider to make enjoying the lake more comfortable and relaxing.

Don’t forget to use the new Weber gas grill on the pool deck to grill some burgers, a nice thick juicy steak, local seafood or vegetables from a local market. The grill's side burner is also great for cooking Low Country Boil outside under the stars.

Take the opportunity to end one of your evenings by the gas fire pit located on the pool deck. It's the perfect outdoor setting to enjoy your Palmetto Dunes dream vacation.

It is our mission to make a visit to 1 Up Wind one of your most enjoyable, relaxing and memorable vacations, on the island or anywhere. We are local small business owners and appreciate the opportunity to help fulfill your vacation desires. We invite you to join us for a stay at 1 Up Wind and look forward to hosting your Hilton Head, Palmetto Dunes dream vacation.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to severe pet allergies, we do not allow pets or animals of any kind in our property. Thanks for understanding.

About Bill Moser

We are the Moser's and we live in Newton, North Carolina-one hour south of beautiful Boone in the Appalachian Mts. and one hour northwest of Charlotte, NC's largest city. We met at Lenior-Rhyne College in Hickory and settled in the area to raise our now two adult daughters (Katharine & Rebecca). Bill fell in love with HHI enjoying golf trips throughout the years with buddies. We were fortunate to have found our new home for vacations with our growing family and to share with our new VRBO family.

Bill Moser purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Moser chose Hilton Head Island

We fell in love with the spacious feel of 1 Up Wind the first time we walked through the front door. It is so open, bright and welcoming. The outdoor spaces are very private and the view of the lake is quite unique in this tropical setting. Built in 1995, the home had never been rented before and offers features you usually don't find in a Palmetto Dunes vacation rental like a bonus room above the garage with pool table. Also features 6 separate sleeping areas, 5 bedrooms (one is a bonus room w/pool table & trundel bed that sleeps 2). The 6th sleeping area is a pull out queen sleeper sofa in the family room.

What makes this house unique

Open spacious floor plan; located on quite cul-de-sac, great for kids bike riding; fresh water lake so bring the fishing gear; large gathering areas to accomodate your group of up to 12 and space to spread out when you want a few quite moments to yourself; large bedrooms with good bedroom seperation; very private pool and spa location with beautiful view of the lake.

Absolutely a gem!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off Bill is a great host and just so happened to be there to greet us. The house was immaculate and extremely spacious. Every bedroom had a 40" flat screen tv with cable, the kitchen is huge and anything you could possible need is in there. The pool was great, very warm, and plenty of room for sun bathing or just sitting on the deck in the shade. The property is very private and you really can't even see other houses from there even though they are not that far away. I have stayed in VRBO homes at least 10 times and similar to this style and price range but I must say that this is by far the most beautiful, clean, and comfortable one yet. IF Bill offered a 100% satisfaction guaranteed I am willing to bet he would never have to honor it because there is no way you would be disappointed. There was 9 of us my wife, 2 kids, 2 in laws, and Brother in law and family and we had plenty of room and privacy... This is a must rent and I can't wait to return...

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. We had a wonderful time. Our only request was that Palmetto put a hose at the beach walk to wash the sand off our feet before we walk back to the house. The ocean was the calmest I have ever seen it. It was perfect.

We will rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your 5 Star review. We sincerely appreciate all our quests taking the time to post a review of their stay in our HHI Palmetto Dunes Resort home. In reference to the need for a hose at the beach, if our guests use the Dunes House beach access parking area, they have showers & foot showers at that location. We also have a hose outside our home for guests to use to rinse & rinse beach gear. Thanks again so much for your kind comments feedback!!

GREAT. Large. Comfortable. Beautiful. Close to everything. Landlord wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The landlord was extremely helpful, easy to get ahold of. The house was better than the pictures. VERY big and open. Nothing I would change in this house. Very updated. lots of sleeping areas. My son got married on Hilton head and my family all stayed in the house. The pool was perfect, clean and warm. the hot tub was fun at night. If we go back to Hilton Head we will stay here again. It would be perfect for 5 couples. everyone could have their own bathroom. back yard very private. the gated community also has a free bus that picks you up at the house and takes you to beach restaurants etc I give it 5 stars

Wonderful Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a girls weekend in mid-April. There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. The house was spotless and very organized. The owner was very responsive to my questions and provided lots of information about the house and Hilton Head in general. We would definitely stay here again in the future. The house is in a great location on the island. We were able to walk to the beach or take the shuttle that runs in the neighborhood. It was convenient to restaurants and the grocery store. Thanks for a wonderful weekend! Wish we could have stayed longer.
