09 East Wind is truly amazing. The home was spotless and the panoramic view from all the large windows is breathtaking. The home is beautifully decorated and the gourmet kitchen and living areas were even more pleasing than the pictures.
The location within Palmetto Dunes is simply ideal. Thanks to the owner and Destination Vacations for making the week one that will not be forgotten. This home will be our 1st choice when returning to HH in the future.

09 East Wind served as the perfect house/home for our family reunion. Destination Vacation was so helpful in guiding us in booking this home for the configuration of people we had attending the reunion and it could not have worked out any better. The home was well constructed and beautifully decorated with large common areas. The photos do not do this home justice. The sleeping den was such a lovely room with access to a full bath. There was 1/2 bath up and 1/2 bath down. The coffee station/butler pantry off the kitchen was a nice surprise and well used. The two sets of laundry facilities were an asset.
The location in the area of Palmetto Dunes was wonderful with no public access nearby so we had our own private beach. The natural dunes and turtle nesting areas were delightful. The California relatives could not believe they could run right into the ocean without a body suit to keep them warm.
We loved how the house was positioned behind the beautiful dunes taking advantage from every area of the house to capture unobstructed ocean views. For improvements I would upgrade the table at the bay window in the kitchen and add another full size refrigerator in the butler's pantry.
Thanks to the owner of this beautiful property for helping loved ones and friends have a wonderful place to gather - this must bring great joy to you.
Destination Vacation service was at the highest level. The refrigerator froze up and leaked, but they had a repair man there in minutes after my phone call. East Wind 09 was a house with beautiful ocean views, and great ocean access. The upper deck is ideal to watch the sunrise and feel like you are at the beach. Please be aware the main level is on the second floor, it is a lot of up and down the stairs in this home- but worth it. It has been maintained well considering a rental, but stove top not all burners working, grill was a small propane, and at this price you would expect more than one kitchen towel/ dish rag, it was shocking the limited towels so if you are flying in be prepared few towels and no beach towels. Checking out you have to take keys to office...I felt this to be inconvenient for luxury accommodations. Read more

Best House on the Beach
Left on 06/07/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | TB
This house was ideal for our family vacation. Ranging in ages from 23 to 92, the quiet location, easy access, and the tremendous house that provided everything you could possibly need was perfect. Destination Vacation was absolutely fantastic throughout. The home is very well maintained, has every amenity, is located on a quiet section of the beach and is easily assessible in Palmetto Dunes. We hope to come back every year.

Our week long vacation at East Wind 9 was all we expected it to be. The home is spacious and well equipped . It accommodated our family of 7 with room to spare. The view is gorgeous, we enjoyed several spectacular sunrises from the balcony. The location in Palmetto Dunes was centrally located great for riding bikes, shopping, and running errands. The guys in our family greatly enjoyed the 3 golf courses available at Palmetto Dunes. The staff at Destination Vacation were very attentive and helpful before, during and after our stay. We had a ball and hope to repeat the experience next year.

Beautifully furnished, fantastic ocean views, immaculate, well maintained and a floor plan that works extremely well for families or several couples! We are already planning our return visit this fall. We travel to HHI 3-4 times a year and we rely totally on Gail's (DV) recommendations. She always comes through for us. This home was everything we were looking for and more!
Perfect relaxing vacation home for multiple families.

Loved the home and the location. The only additional comment I have is just that every other home we've ever rented (never on the east coast) and I was unaware that nothing was included in the house (salt,pepper, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, etc).
We have rented oceanfront houses on HHI nearly every year since 1999 and this was the best property that we have stayed at. The Destination Vacation staff was very helpful in arranging the rental and preparing the house. There were no issues to deal with during our stay. The house is well maintained, is very roomy and well equipped, and has gorgeous views of the ocean.

This house exceeded our expectations. It is just beautiful. This was our 2nd time in Hilton Head, and this house was much more spacious than the previous rental home we stayed in. This house has an awesome layout. It was perfect for the entire family. All ages from 5 to 80 enjoyed this house. The views from all the windows, the furnishings, simply put "stunning". We had a blast swimming in the ocean and swimming in the pool, it was the best of both worlds! Couldn't ask for a better location. Loved it!!

Our stay was one to remember for as long as we live. Our group of golfers have been together for 15 years and this home was the best we've experienced.
Every need has been taken care of from the best of the best upscale appliances to the gas grill. Big screen TV's to the WI-FI throughout and the magnificent view from either of the covered lanais.
With its own private boardwalk and the caressing waves only a short walk away without any obstructions what so ever.
There is easy access to area golf courses with the furthest being a 45 minute drive. The courses available were in all ranges of pricing and play levels. All six we played were in great shape and had all the amenities.
For a golf destination there is a vast number of great eateries and shopping destinations. With that said you may change your vacation routine of eating out every night. Great steaks or seafood are available from the local butcher to create your fantastic meals on the gas grills. Once you’ve cooked dinner you can choose to dine at the mile long dinning table, or sit outside at the pool and enjoy the out doors. For both the avid golfer and those looking for some day shopping this location has it all.
Access to the key pickup and drop off could be eliminated with a keypad entry.
To sum up our experience in one word is easy. Fabulous!!!

This is a perfect rental. Yes - it is expensive, but as they say, you get what you
pay for. Exceptional ocean front property and very private. My wife and I
wanted a place that could comfortably accommodate our family - four 20's
something children and spouses/friends. Everything about this house was
luxury and convenience. 5 minute bike ride to the general store and tennis.
Walk on your own private walkway to a very uncrowded beach. The pool and
hot tub were also perfect as were the furnishings. Nothing "cheap" about this
rental at all. We are very picky. You will not be disappointed. Oh, I almost
forgot - the ocean views from every corner of this house and property - truly
