Demetria Thomas
Guest Services Manager, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort

Demetria Thomas has lived in the Lowcountry her entire life and is one of the first people you may encounter when checking into your rental property in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. Her smile is infectious, and she has the wealth of knowledge about our area only a local would know. When she isn’t helping our visitors make the best of their vacations, you can find her on the beach or shopping with a cup of joe in hand—Demetria is a true coffee connoisseur.

What do you love about living in the Lowcountry?
The people. Southern hospitality and charm. Everyone’s accents.

What is the most frequently asked question by our visitors, and what is your answer?
Where should we eat? I love the fish tacos we have at the resort, so I recommend the Dunes House or Big Jim’s to get those. I also send folks to Ruby Lee’s, which is a great spot for live music and good food.

What is your favorite annual event or festival?
Harbourfest in Shelter Cove Marina. It’s very family-oriented, and the kids love Cappy the Clown. The atmosphere on the marina can’t be beat, and everyone is always excited.

If you could advise our visitors to do just one thing while they are here, what would it be?
Take a bike ride and explore. There are so many bike paths to enjoy, so bring a bike or rent a bike and get out there!
