My family consisting of 20 visited Hilton Head August of 2016. All of the children, grandchildren and my husband and I stayed in Hilton Head for four days. We rented a Villa with 5 bedrooms. The trip was amazingly enjoyable. The togetherness is what made it important. There is nothing like family!

We played pickle ball at the new pickle ball courts located at the tennis facility. The facility/courts are fantastic. The clubhouse had lots of pickle ball equipment for sale or rent, court rental was very reasonable and all of the staff we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful, especially Mark, who helped us tremendously, as we are...

We found the perfect villa in St Andrews Common for our vacation on HHI. Although the hurricane cleanup and construction (road paving) caused a bit of congestion and noise, it was still paradise. We weren't able to golf the courses (they are closed until Dec 2 due to hurricane), but we enjoyed everything else PD has to offer! We biked... More

We booked our trip through Vacation Company and they are the best. We travel to Hilton Head usually twice a year. This trip we used Vacation Company and I must say they are the best so far. Their service, the cleanliness of our condo, the ease of check in and check out, the promptness to answering our questions - everything... More

Hilton Head, overall, is a wonderful place to visit, but staying in Palmetto Dunes makes it that much better. I can't say that it's better than some of the other plantations because I like Palmetto Dunes so much, I haven't tried the others. What I can say is that it's beautifully maintained, is convenient to shopping, restaurants, and the beach... More

This is the second year we've rented a home here for the Memorial Day weekend, and we've been pleased. There was a small issue with the air conditioner, and staff was there quickly, took care of everything, and even brought us box fans to help cool the house down faster. They make sure you have everything you need, and all... More

Our favorite place to stay in Hilton Head. Villas are great. The community is excellent as everything you need is within waking distance of the plantation. The beach is excellent and maintained well. Will continue staying in Palmetto when in Hilton Head.

We were so happy to that we chose Palmetto Dunes for our first visit to Hilton Head. Stayed in the Hickory Cove villas. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, along a quiet road and a well-maintained path. Beach was beautiful - pristine, uncrowded (away from the hotels and Dunes House), stunning. Convenient location with Kroger, gas, restaurants nearby... More

We spent much time looking for a place to vacation as a family. Palmetto Dunes was a little pricey, but we'll worth it. The landscape was beautiful. ...beach within walking distance. Bike rental highly suggested. Golf courses available as well as canoe and paddle boat rentals. I was surprised to find that the general store prices were actually lower in... More

We just spent a wonderful 3-night stay in Palmetto Dunes (Queens Grant)... Our accommodations were perfect! We had plenty of room for 5 of us in a 2-bedroom villa, the kitchen was fully equipped (including washer/dryer), and the sitting area was comfortable. The only downside is that we had only one bathroom to be shared by five of us. Check-in... More
