We had a perfect vacation experience in this home.

This home was simply amazing! Every room was beautifully furnished in an extremely tasteful motif that exuded the feel of an "island vacation". The location was ideal and just steps away from the ocean. The pool and hot tub were great entertainment for the kids during the afternoon and the adults at night.

The older members of my family love this beautiful and well appointed home. We have booked it for next year and plan to book it for 2013 which will be my and my husband's 50th anniversay during our stay.
We would suggest that a check of the house phones, lights be made prior to our arrival so that we don't have to call after arriving.The proximity to the beachwalk is great for our walkers and ocean lovers. Our adult children stay in 7 armada. My favorite is the warm & inviting decor.

We had rented this house five years ago when it was brand new and fantastic. It is still a great house and meets our families needs but is showing some wear from five years of rentals. Good location if you don't want to spend the extra thousands to be on the ocean.

Our extended family celebrated my mom's 80th birthday on Hilton Head and we really enjoyed the time spent in this beautifully-decorated & comfortable private house. Overall, the location was ideal- one house from the beach which helped with supervision of small children. The house is at the end of a private road where kids rode their bikes. Front porch w/rocking chairs was a favorite gathering place.
There were several other areas to gather in small groups and the general living areas comfortably accommodated our entire large group.
Pool & patio area was spacious and ideal for enjoying outdoor meals & playing cards, board games, etc.
The master bedrooms were all luxurious and the bathrooms large and well-appointed. The mattresses and bedding were of the highest quality and comfort!
Kitchen was spacious and beautifully-designed and easily accommodated several cooks and sous-chefs working together. Unfortunately, a few tools were missing (can opener, potato peeler, extra dish towels) which required additional trips to the store, which were conveniently located a few minutes from the house.
There were some maintenance issues that were not detected previous to our stay: leaky kitchen sink, burned-out bulbs, TV/sound system not working, outdoor fireplace not accessible, outdoor furniture in rough shape, rusted & dirty grill, clogged bathroom drain, slow toilet. Overall, the house was a perfect gathering place and we chose to overlook some of these minor issues. However, what we did report was immediately corrected by the rental company. I would recommend that they be reminded to inspect the home thoroughly before your arrival.

I have been going to Hilton Head for my spring vacation for over ten years now and when my extended family faced several significant milestones last year, I knew exactly where to go to celebrate. This beautiful sanctuary by the sea was the perfect spot for all of our families to gather for our most memorable vacation ever.

Palmetto Dunes area is quiet, private, high end homes. This home
is one off Ocean front but on the path to the beach which was
convenient. We actually didn't want to be ocean front cause of the
time of year, the wind can be cold in March, we had 60-70 degree
weather so we were able to sit by the pool in the sun, and the
beach, kids took a dip in the ocean but too cold for most adults.
Excellent for three families since there are three master suites
upstairs and the kids all split the rest. Beautiful kitchen, waffle
maker didn't work :( Guests can't use the outdoor fireplace in the
pics either. Spa/Pool nice, rec paying for the heat if it's cold time
of year. While the high end baths/showers are nice looking, water
pressure not up to snuff to take advantage of it, actually makes it
worse than regular fixtures. Easiest check in/out ever with Island
Getaways, highly recommend this company. free WiFi in house. We
had some trouble with the clothes dryer but it was fixed quickly, so
service was exceptional. Overall great home we're considering
going back to same home.

We spent a week at this house with our extended family (15) and did
not feel as if we were on top of each other. The sheer volume of this
house is fantastic. The rooms are large, and there is enough area for
all to be comfortable. There are three master bedrooms and they are
the most spacious and luxurious I have encountered for this type of
rental home. Additionally, it is a second row beach house, but due to
the walkway proximity it feels as if you are actually as close to the
beach as some ocean front homes. The decor is impressive with no
luxury spared. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to
