Quiet area, love the lagoon

Nice place to stay. Enjoyed kayaking on the lagoon, biking to the beach. Eating at the general store. Nice to be in the middle of the island close to many stores and restaurants.

We absolutely love staying at Palmetto Dunes ... centrally located on the Island, with wonderful villas and houses for rent. Beautiful accommodations with pools, hot tubs, restaurants, bike trails and pristine beach, right outside the door. We love being able to hop on the bike trail and go either direction to nearby areas on the island. Convenient to all ....... More

He was wonderful with the kids and very knowledgeable about the wildlife. . We have... More

This was our 8th trip to Palmetto Dunes. We selected Palmetto Dunes after a long stint of vacationing at Sea Island. Although Sea Island amenities better, the cost and the formailty were becoming suffocating. We have rented condo and homes at The Dunes and have never been disappointed. The last few years we have been in a five bedroom home... More

If you are a family with small children, be ready for the negative changes within Palmetto Dunes. The main pool used to have a kiddy pool years ago, but that was removed and now the main pool by the General Store is for the L.I.F.E. center use. The playgrounds are gone and you get the feeling this is becoming more... More

We spent 2 weeks at this location and loved it. It was on the beach and the grounds were beautiful. We stayed in Villamare and it was the nicest condo we ever stayed in. You can bike all around the property, go fishing, walking, swim or just relax.

Palmetto Dunes is so friendly. I enjoy a casual lunch at the general store - the best bbq and fried chicken mac and cheese on the island! You can easily bike and walk everywhere. The activities are diverse. I have fished with Stacie in the lagoon, played golf on the courses and taken classes with pro Doug Weaver, played tennis... More

Palmetto Dunes Plantation is definitely the place to stay while on Hilton Head Island. We enjoyed it three times so far each time renting a villa for our family. The golf courses are supposedly great here but we do not golf. We do enjoy tennis which is here a reason by itself to come. Each time we rent bikes from... More
