About Luann Brenner

We are individual homeowners from Ohio with two rental homes in Hilton Head, Please check our reviews-- We work hard to assure you have a wonderful experience, and we enjoy sharing our little bit of paradise with others! We hope to help you build a lifetime of precious family memories.

Luann Brenner purchased this house in 1994

Why Luann Brenner chose Hilton Head Island

Beautiful setting in Palmetto Dunes, with large expanse of beach and a quiet setting in which to relax and enjoy your group.

What makes this house unique

Four of our five bedrooms are oceanfront and comparable to each other, which makes sharing the cost between families very easy! Each has a large attached bathroom with jetted tub and has a wonderful view of the beach/ocean. We provide beach towels for your use, and work hard to satisfy all of your needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't think of a more appropriate address for this beachfront property than "10" Ketch.If you want that "perfect 10" family vacation, you certainly can catch that dream at 10 Ketch.

The setting is beautiful and secluded, with a 60 second walk to the beach (our kids and grandkids could walk it quicker!). The house is spacious, yet cozy for a family. While there are many activities on Hilton Head to attract everyone's attention, you may be tempted to never leave these wonderful accommodations. The great room, dining room, and kitchen create the ideal gathering place for the whole family. And the more than generous bedrooms and baths offer the comfort and privacy of home. The private swimming pool and plentiful chairs, tables, and lounges are so inviting, it almost makes a trip to the beach seem laborious.....almost. Our family was agog at 10 Ketch and the ocean view when we first arrived, with talk of "next year" starting immediately. When departure day arrived our 6-year-old grandson petitioned, "Next year, can we stay for six weeks?" This being our first stay, we had no idea what to expect, but those expectations were very high. We can say, without a doubt, those expectations were exceeded! And, while we cannot stay for "six weeks" next year, we have already booked a week in 2016. We cannot wait.

Gorgeous Ocean Front Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at various ocean front homes on Hilton Head Island and have found 10 Ketch to be one of the best…. Simply Gorgeous! The home offers spectacular ocean front views, pool privacy, serene location in Palmetto Dunes as well as all the amenities that would be associated with a home of this standing.

Luann the owner is wonderful to deal with and was very attentive to our needs… very hands on and responsive ... an absolute pleasure to work with! The furnishings in the house are modern and well thought out, beds are comfortable, ample storage and the kitchen well-appointed…the property is very well maintained.

Summary – We Love 10 Ketch and will be making this our vacation home when on the Island!

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing spot for our getaway this fall! This house had all the amenities we could possibly need and all the comforts of home. It's absolutely beautiful, clean and laid out very well. How can you go wrong with 4 oceanfront bedrooms, being lulled to sleep every night by the sound of ocean waves, and a perfect pool to top it all off? The owner, Luann Brenner, was super accommodating and helpful throughout the rental process. Would highly recommend this property. Just one minor thing - be careful of the spa at the end of the pool with young children or elderly people as it would be easy to accidentally step into and cause possible injury (we actually blocked it off).

10 Ketch met all our expectations. Eight adults and three grandkids enjoyed every minute of our stay. Private access to beach was a big win. Very clean and comfortable. All pictures on website are for real. Owner is very involved in making your stay the best it can be.

The best place on Hilton Head Island with the best property owner!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing at HHI for years and 10Ketch is by far the best place we have ever stayed at. The house was beautiful and so comfortable that accommodated my large family. The views were breathtaking. 10 Ketch makes it convienent to go back and forth from the beach and the pool without ever having to plan a beach day.

Luann, who is the property owner is amazing to talk and work with!!

The first few days on vacation it rained, Luann gave us a list of things to do on top of her home already having plenty to do on a rainy day. Anytime that I had a question, she responded immediately!! She made this trip so much easier and relaxed for us!! I so appreciate her help!

10 Ketch is absolutely the best place to stay at. My family and I have chose to only stay at this home from now on!!

Thanks Luann!!!

This home is perfect for a family in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The owner carefully maintains the home and all conveniences for guests. She checks several times a week to be sure all is in order. You feel as though you are a guest of gracious hosts, in a beautiful home with a great pool, right on the ocean, many beach and pool chairs, toys for children, beach towels, a lovely porch with an awning to enjoy watching the ocean and birds, while feeling the ocean breezes. This is our family's seventh year staying in owners two homes, and we have reserved again next year. My family does not want to stay anywhere else.

Best place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this house for a family vacation, so I already knew that we would love it! The house itself is awesome. Enough bedrooms for our adult children, their spouses and 2 grandchildren. And with each bedroom having its own bathroom, everyone had some privacy too. It's so nice that Luann (the owner) has stocked the kitchen with everything we might need except for food and paper products. There are about twenty clean beach towels available too, along with some beach chairs for our use and pool toys for us to use. Luann is great to work with. She replied right away to any emails I sent with questions and was available to call also. We took her advice and ordered groceries before arriving, and it was a wonderful idea. The groceries arrived at the same time we did on Saturday and there was no rushing to get to the store. We also loved renting the bikes again. Our routine included daily rides to the small general store with the little kids and beach bike rides for the big kids. We spent our days between the pool and beach.....so convenient! It was great to be able to just run upstairs for snacks or drinks, vs staying at a hotel. As my husband and I were floating in the pool, we talked about how priceless it is to have our whole family together in one place. As they all get older, it just doesn't happen as often. But they have all created memories (so much fun together) that will last a lifetime. We will be back again for sure!!
