My wife and I visited Palmetto Dunes for our Honeymoon and had a terrific time! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the fact that it wasn't a ton of people just at the beach to party. The scenery was great and the bike paths were nice to ride. We happened to have a couple of bikes sitting at our villa, so... More

We stayed in a condo at Inverness. Close to the beach and many other amenities. Our area had tennis courts and a pool. Very nice and quiet. Our kids loved riding bikes through the resort. Shopping and grocery stores are nearby.

We have been going to palmetto dunes for 13 years for vacation. I play golf with my son and daughter in the mornings and enjoy the beach in the afternoons. My wife is a beach bum but also loves the shopping and many restaurants. Palmetto dunes is our favorite vacation destination. For the past 3 years at palmetto dunes my... More

My wife and I stayed here at the end of June and were surprised at the distance from St Andrews Common to the beach. Was told it was a walk away...not in the heat advisory haha. It was all of a 6 minute car drive. It is a very large community. The resort is well designed and shaded with Bike/running... More

My family and I recently spend a few nights in Hilton Head. We stayed at Villamare and enjoyed our time there. The pool was nice and it was located right on the beach. I will probably stay in Palmetto Dunes again the next time in Hilton Head.

We used VRBO to find our renovated condo. The resort is gorgeous, we practically had our pool to ourselves. We rented bikes and rode around the resort. We had a short walk to the beach but we chose to drive 2 minutes. No complaints.

This was our first time at Palmetto Dunes, and everything met or surpassed our expectations. Check in was fast with no problems. We stayed at Tradewinds at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina. Our villa was very updated, spacious, and comfortable. The entire property was well kept, the grounds were beautiful. We were just a short walk to the marina and... More

Just finishing up a trip to Hilton Head...Palmetto Dunes resort. Family of 6. Stayed in 951 Inverness. Can't say enough about this resort, the amenities, the time we had. Inverness village is located kind of in the middle of the resort, but is surrounded by golf courses. Beautiful setting...felt very private even though we were just a bike ride from... More

This was our first time at Palmetto Dunes (and in Hilton Head for that matter), and it was as nice as we expected. We relaxed, we played, we dined. The was great. We stayed at a villa in the Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina (Harbourside I, Villa 7132). It was spacious and updated, and so comfortable we had trouble getting... More

We have been coming here for 10 years now and it feels almost like home. We rent the same beautiful villa in Windsor II through VRBO every year. The grounds are kept immaculate (even if that means noisy and smelly leaf blowers and mowers in the morning). Contrary to one of your recent reviewers we have always found everyone helpful... More
