10 Reasons to Stay in a Vacation Rental at Palmetto Dunes Resort

There are few things as exciting as going on vacation, but whether you’re looking for a family getaway, golf buddy trip, or a romantic couples’ retreat, planning the perfect getaway can be stressful. Where to stay? What to eat? How can you make sure everyone has a memorable and wonderful time? Luckily for you, there’s something for everyone on Hilton Head Island, and the villas and vacation homes in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort are the ideal home base for your dream Lowcountry vacation. Don’t believe us? Here are 10 reasons to stay in a villa at Palmetto Dunes Resort.

1: Space
Palmetto Dunes villas have up to four bedrooms, and many have a luxurious balcony, patio, backyard, or pool area too! This is ideal for families and larger groups (did someone say Bachelorette party?) as everyone has the room to enjoy him or herself comfortably.

2: Kitchen
Dining out is a blast—especially when you’ve got an impeccable list of restaurants to choose from—but it can be nice to have a home-cooked meal, even when you’re on vacation! A full kitchen allows you to prepare as much or as little food as you like. It’s great for stocking up on simple breakfasts and on-the-go snacks, or spending quality time cooking beautiful meals.
