Testimonials from our Owners

Palmetto Sands manages two of my properties. They are efficient, friendly and treat my properties as if they were their own. They are the fourth agency I have retained (one of which is of the largest on the Island) and are far superior to them all.


Aloha, just a brief note to confirm our satisfaction with Palmetto Sands management of our South Beach Villa. We relied on them to see us through an important renovation and it was a job well done. Your personal attention to detail has been first rate and we thank you.

J. Milhalke

Testimonials from our Guests

We have been coming to Hilton Head for over 20 years. Our family always enjoys our time here. This house was great, plenty of room and really enjoyed the pool with fenced in backyard for our dog. Very nice neighborhood and so close to beach. House was very well equipped and very comfortable. Palmetto Sands Realty was great to work with. We plan to reserve this house every year from now on!

C from Columbia, SC

Jennifer was really helpful and great! Even after we checked in your office was so helpful with getting pool cleaned and extending our stay. Great folks!

S. Rai

We’ll be back! Having used VRBO for most vacations over the past few years I can honestly say this was the best yet! The house is beautiful and the pool far exceeded out expectations. We plan on booking the home again next year! Ladies at Palmetto Sands were great and really know how to look after their guests. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you!
