Oceanfront Residential and Vacation Resort

Palmetto Dunes homes for sale include some of the most luxurious homes and villas on Hilton Head Island. Palmetto Dunes Resort, ranked as #1 Family Resort in the US and Canada (Travel + Leisure), is nestled in the heart of Hilton Head and enjoys three miles of prime beachfront property along the Atlantic Ocean.

Because of the activities and amenities found just minutes from Palmetto Dunes homes, the area is regarded by islanders as one of the best places on Hilton Head for families and for retirees.

Investors favor Palmetto Dunes Resort as well because a good portion of the shoreline has been dedicated to villa construction (short term vacation rentals produce healthy investment rental income).

The west side of Palmetto Dunes is comprised of luxury homes from two to seven bedrooms with oceanfront, wooded, lagoon or golf views. On the east side of the resort are many oceanfront condominium complexes with one to four bedrooms.

The Properties of Palmetto Dunes

The unique layout of Palmetto Dunes allows for personal and primary residences as well as vacation rental properties.

Palmetto Dunes has four sections:

  • marina (this would be in the Shelter Cove portion of the resort)
  • Leamington (a resort within a resort consisting of homes and villas/condos)

Depending on your preference, views offered include oceanfront, water features such as lagoons, wooded and golf course.

Developed in 1967, the planners of Palmetto Dunes were committed to preserving the natural resources, making it a prototype for many other communities on the island and elsewhere throughout the nation.
