About the property

3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Come and relax in our beautiful 3 bedroom/3.5 bath home in the gorgeous resort of Palmetto Dunes! Just steps away from the 11 mile lagoon where you can fish and kayak, the biking/walking trails that wind throughout the community are right outside the door and our home is only a 5 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast!

Enter to the living room furnished with a sofa, two chairs, 40 inch, flat screen cable TV with a DVD/CD player. The adjacent dining area has seating for six. The fully-equipped kitchen with Corian countertops offers additional seating for 3 at the bar.

The huge master suite has a king-size bed, sitting area, cable TV, and a very spacious private bath with jetted tub and separate shower and an oversized walk-in closet. A powder room is located at the base of the stairs. The second floor has two additional bedrooms and a “bonus” bedroom. The first has a queen-size bed, cable TV and private bath with tub/shower. The second bedroom has a main bedroom with 2 twin beds and an adjacent bedroom with an additional 2 twin beds, each with cable TV; these two rooms share an en suite bath with shower. This room does have a door which provides privacy to the main room – perfect for kids!

The fabulous pool is located right off the deck and provides enough room for a large crowd. The backyard pool area has 2 lounge chairs, dining table for 4 with umbrella and a gas grill.

Our guests are also within walking distance to the many activities offered in Palmetto Dunes. There is a public dock to access the salt water lagoon within steps of the house – so bring your fishing gear and/or kayak and drop it in the water! If you don’t have your own equipment, Hilton Head Outfitters is within walking distance of the home and provides bikes, canoes, kayaks, fishing gear and other rentals to use while you enjoy your stay. Palmetto Dunes also offers 3 championship golf courses including the Fazio Golf Course which is a block away and The Robert Trent Jones and Arthur Hills Golf Courses are also located a short distance away in the resort. The Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center offers multiple tennis courts, The General Store, Alexanders Restaurant, the Dunes House Oceanfront Restaurant and Big Jim’s BBQ & Burgers – this is all within walking distance or a short bike ride. You never have to leave the resort to enjoy a wonderful, relaxing vacation!

The old real estate slogan says it all...location, location, location. The house design, the layout of the living space, the backyard in ground pool, the nearness to a nice beach area, the nearness of many good restaurants. All of the above scored excellent. However, what was not excellent, was the following. The cleaning crew should be fired and replaced. We did not want to run the ceiling fans in the rooms because of all the dust that was on them. The front porch around the lights was full of bugs. The windows, blinds and shades looked like they haven't been cleaned in months. I don't mind if things such as the furniture and fixtures are a little old and worn. That's ok and that can be expected. But, if things are dirty and not clean, that is not acceptable. Again, I know that people can be hard on a rental home. I get that. I am a landlord, myself. But the rental home Needs to be clean! And it was only surface clean and no more. The location gets 5 stars. But the cleanliness, only gets 3 stars. That places it with an overall star rating of 4. Another pet peeve I have is the number of trash liners provided for the kitchen waste basket. Only 3! I called Island Getaway and they told me that is my responsibility. Really...how costly to you would it be to provide 1 plastic kitchen trash bag for each day of the stay? I understand that we our responsible for the paper towels and toilet paper and soap and all the personal items. I get that. But, only 3 trash liners? Not acceptable in my book for the money that we put out to rent this house. One last negative note. The grill should be checked for cleanliness after each renter. It wasn't. I will try to leave on a positive note. We had a problem with the coffee maker. It had a "burnt" taste to the coffee and could not be cleaned out. I called Island Getaway and they quickly replaced the coffee pot. I know this was long, but hopefully, thorough enough to bring some action to take place.

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect with a convenient 5 min walk to the beach. Our family of four enjoyed every second. The pool was clean. The yard has lots of shade, and we grilled out most days. Savannah was just a short drive away. We highly recommend to everyone. And we would definitely return

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week at 3 Troon thanks in part to the wonderful accommodating owners. Trisha was prompt and courteous with her email responses to our questions. The check in was smooth, the text that the house was ready came early while we were off island grocery shopping. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen had all of the pots, pans, plates and utensils needed. The layout of the house has the master bedroom on the ground floor and the other bedrooms upstairs. Even with two kids up there, we heard no noise from them walking around or the televisions. The couch in the living room is spacious and the furniture comfortable. We used the dining room table, big enough for a crowd, to eat meals and play games.

Overall, the house was nice. But the pool was the best part. The yard is full of trees, perfect for privacy, and provides shade for an afternoon swim. (Even for the fair skinned red headed child) The temperature was good, and the water was clean.

The beach is literally a 4 1/2 minute walk (we timed it). Once there, the beach was not packed and there was plenty of space to spread out.

We plan on returning to 3 Troon next year. This house was the best rental we have every had (and we have had many). Thanks Trisha for a great "end of the summer vacation".

Family bacation

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this house in July. We had 2 families with a total of 6 kids.

Pro's: large space for a family, plenty of beds for kids, nice pool in back that gets a nice balance of sun & shade.

Con's: the reason this house gets 3 stars is due to the poor cooling of the upstairs bedrooms. The rental company was great and sent the air company out three times. The upstairs gets up to 80 degrees with the air at 72. It doesn't cool until 2am down to 72. The air company could not fix the issue. Poor insulation upstairs is the main reason. Thankfully there are fans upstairs. I won't stay here again because this put a damper on the trip as we worried about everyone upstairs being too hot. I would not recommend staying here in the summer unless they are able to fix this problem. It's not fair to rent this property out as I'm sure this is a known problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. As we discussed, the unit on the 2nd floor was a brand new unit that was just installed in February. Our air conditioning company installed the appropriate size unit, but unfortunately with these very hot temperatures this summer, it was not able to keep up. They tried on several occasions to get the unit performing at the necessary level, with no luck. We replaced the unit on the day you checked out and it has been functioning very well with no concerns from other guests. For your inconvenience, we would love for you to come back and stay with us again at a discounted rate. Again, we apologize and thank you for your patience and hope to have you back in the future!

Worked great for two families

  • 4 of 5

We had two families of four. The shared bedroom for the younger kids was great. We also had a two year old in a pack n play that fit wonderfully in the master walk in closet. Walk to beach was only five minutes. Owners very responsive while we were there and had a question about lights.
