Who could argue with a holiday oceanside? Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island makes it easy for couples, families and more to spend all — or part — of their winter break in sunny South Carolina, enjoying a range of outdoor activities at an affordable price.
1. Mild Weather
Imagine a Christmas day stroll along the beach or after your family meal and winter days sitting in the sunshine on a balcony with ocean views. Hilton Head Island’s sunny winter days and mild weather also promotes outdoor activity from a family round of pickleball at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis & Pickleball Center to a brisk bike ride across the island.
2. The Price is Right
You can spend the holidays just steps from the ocean in a vacation rental, complete with full kitchen, washer/dryer, separate bedrooms and balconies, at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort starting at just $130 per night for a one bedroom villa. This is less than many area hotels with much smaller space. Many villa complexes also offer pools, gyms, elevators and screened porches.
3. Cook Holiday Dinner Right in Your Home or Villa
When booking a vacation villa or home, you can choose to dine at a local restaurant like Palmetto Dunes’ Alexander’s or Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers & Pizza or cook your family meal right in the rental’s full kitchen. You may even want to grill out by the pool if Hilton Head experiences one of its 70-degree winter days.
4. Bring Your Pooch
During the winter months Palmetto Dunes offers select dog-friendly villas at no additional charge. Guests may bring one dog per villa weighing no more than 40 pounds so Fido can celebrate right alongside you and enjoy days frolicking in the surf and sand.
