This property was very nice. I enjoyed being able to sit outside in the courtyard and have a place for my for baby to hang with me. We were able to walk around the commons to be able to play ball and exercise. The pool was very nice. We did look over the fence at the pool where the fountain was and there’s an alligator in there amongst all of the turtles. Such beautiful walking paths in and around Palmetto Dunes. The home was very clean and well kept . I loved the private little alcove to get in to our unit. As well, it was a perfect place for our rented bikes to stay.

My wife, dog, and I had an absolute blast staying at thus humble abode in St. Andrews! Easy to find, nice neighborhood, very clean place, and close to the pool + plenty of local shopping, restaurants, bars, beaches, etc. Highly recommend a HHI getaway here! We'd definitely consider booking this same place again someday soon :)
