About Jack Hunt
Our Seabrook Island home was custom designed and built in 2006 to accommodate our extended family shown above, yet it is comfortable for just one couple. Very flexible sleeping arrangements in five private rooms and 9 beds for up to 12 people are available. Living, cooking and dining facilities are commensurate. The kitchen was custom designed by the owner who is passionate about cooking and attended a week's boot camp at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA).
Jack Hunt purchased this house in 2006
Why Jack Hunt chose Seabrook Island
My wife and I first visited Seabrook Thanksgiving, 1982, with three other couples on a holiday getaway from the onset of winter in Delaware. What a wonderful vacation! We all played tennis, golf, road horses, walked the beaches and dined in the Island House while enjoying the perfect weather. Of course, we all immediately fell in love with the island and revisited it a number of times. Almost twenty years after our first visit and after looking at resorts all along the Southeast Coast, we bought a lot on Seabrook Island Road in 2001 and built our Seabrook Island home in 2006. Today three of the four original couples who first vacationed there in 1982, own a home in Seabrook or nearby Kiowa.
What makes this house unique
We enjoy taking our morning coffee on the east screened porch with the morning sun and views of the wooded landscape and adjacent lagoon. We are often entertained by the numerous birds and squirrels in the trees and occasional deer running through the yard.
One of my hobbies is cooking which I enjoy in the kitchen I designed. The key feature is the 5 burner DCS cooktop. I also enjoy grilling on the Big Green Egg on the deck. I extended the roof overhang to 4 feet to protect the grilling area from rain. My wife enjoys baking in the convection oven. We have a new combination microwave convection oven. I admit that I have not yet used the convection feature, but it will surely be useful when preparing holiday dinners for large crowds.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This guest sent us this note today: "We just wanted to let you know how much our family enjoyed our stay at your house in Seabrook Island. It was so nice to have such a beautiful place to bring everyone together. It was hard to leave that Saturday to come home. Easily could have stayed longer. We have been very busy since getting home and haven't had an opportunity to email you or put a review out but will be writing a review very soon. Thank you again for the use of your lovely home."
They also wrote: "I believe that we left everything in good shape and hope that it was satisfactory to you. With that being said, when can we expect our deposit back from you? Again, thank you so much for your hospitality and we will definitely want to stay there again."
They were evidently pleased and indicated they would be interesting in returning. We certainly hope so. They also indicated they left the house in good shape and wondered when their deposit would be returned. We do appreciate guests who leave the house in good shape and the great majority do so. Their deposit refund plus interest and those of two other guests were mailed later in the day. We were on vacation for two weeks staying the last week at a very nice VRBO rental in Ontario and as a result we did get a little behind. However, the interest paid did cover the two week delay in returning the refund.
