About Maggie Ornduff
Steve and I met in college. I grew up on the North Shore of Chicago and Steve is a native Kansas Citian. He attended University of Missouri (MIZZOU) and I attended the private womens college next door, Stephens College. We married soon after graduation and started our careers in the Kansas City area. Our first dwelling was that apartment with hand me down furniture from our families….the olive green loveseat, cocktail table - typical black iron outdoor table and a rocking chair…that was it! We made enough to pay our rent and Steve would be so excited that after paying bills we had $25.00 to last two weeks..wahoo!
We learned to save, worked hard and bought our first home to start our family…thats where it began.
In the early 2000s we were at a point to make a risk and a difference for ourselves and others. We bought a business out of bankruptcy and turned it around within a few years.
In 2006 we started Ornduff Properties, LLC. Our first investment was a town home right across from the ski resort of Winter Park, CO. Soon after a historical loft in downtown River Market of Kansas City (2006), a Villa in Sea Pines - Hilton Head Island, SC (2009) and now a Beach House in Sea Pines - Hilton Head Island, SC.(2013)
Our goal was to buy places where we like to go and share with our guests who appreciate clean, beautifully designed and well taken care of properties.
We do not rent to just anyone. We speak with each of our guests to make sure that our properties are the right fit for them as well as us.
Our expectations are high when we travel and expect only the best….this is why we rent as home owners…there is NO middle man..you are speaking directly to us.
We hope you'll consider the beach house….
Maggie Ornduff purchased this house in 2013
Guestbook comments from the owner
What an amazing house! We had such a great week! Plenty of beach and family time. It was my baby's first beach trip so that was exciting! She stood up and took some steps of her own for the first time. Thanks for the lovely memories!
