Hilton Head Island has been the backdrop of family vacations for decades and here at Palmetto Dunes, we like to make sure that all family members get to partake in the fun. That's why, from October through March, we offer dog-friendly vacation rentals across our resort. Read on to learn more about Palmetto Dunes' dog-friendly rentals (select units) and some of our top tips for traveling with your pet.
To get started planning the perfect Hilton Head family vacation for you and your pet, reach out to one of our reservation specialists, or browse available pet friendly vacation rentals online. Rentals vary from one to three bedrooms, and from apartment-style to complete villas.

When traveling with your dog, it’s just as important to remember to pack what they need as it is to pack essentials for yourself and your family. You'll want to bring your leash, pick-up bags, treats and toys, portable food and water bowls—not to mention food—and a blanket or dog bed so your dog will sleep as comfortably in your Palmetto Dunes vacation rental as you will.
Whether you're arriving in Hilton Head Island by air or by car, there are steps you can take to make sure that the experience goes smoothly—for you and your pet. Make sure you've got the proper-sized pet carrier with plenty of ventilation and label it clearly. If flying, try your best to book a direct route (luckily for you new flights are arriving in the Hilton Head Island and Savannah airports all the time) and if you're driving, consider taking your dog on some shorter trips before you depart to get them used to riding on the road.
Once you've arrived in Hilton Head Island and settled into your pet-friendly vacation rental all that's left to do is have some fun! Grab your leash and head to the beach for a family stroll. Walk your dog to Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina to explore the boardwalk, set out to sea with Outside Hilton Head, or have a seat on one of the dog-friendly patios.
We love welcoming families to Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort to spend quality time together and enjoy all of the amenities that our resort offers, and we can’t wait to welcome you—and your dog, too!
