Palmetto Dunes Rules

Palmetto Dunes (where my Ocean’s Gem home is located) has very restrictive rules versus North Forest Beach (where my other two homes are located) .  Click here for Preregistration Form


Where Should You Hold Your Event?


I have two ocean front homes and one home off the beach.  Sandpiper’s Nook (best event option if you want oceanfront) is on the beach in North Forest Beach which is less restrictive than Palmetto Dunes (where my other ocean front is located:  Ocean’s Gem).  Palmetto Dunes has extensive restrictions:  no outdoor lighting, tents, speakers etc.  They really expect you to use their venue for your event:

Your third and least expensive option is Pelican’s Perch (the most beautiful house of the three) in North Forest Beach, which is 150 yards to the beach access (click here for a video of the walk to the beach).  See the home page for a quick overview of all three of my homes.

Most brides chose to have the wedding on the beach and walk back to the house for the reception.  We have had one small wedding on the upper deck at Sandpiper, and have had weddings in all three yards. It’s really up to you.

Review #10686737 “Perfect Beachfront Home for a Wedding”

Kathleen and Destination Vacations went above and beyond to ensure our

wedding and stay for the week were memorable, which it was. The house was

exactly as advertised and the views/pics were fantastic. The elevator was

especially helpful for our elderly parents and loading/unloading. We would

absolutely rent this house again the next time we visit HHI.
