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 South Carolina

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.

perfect beach vacation at 10 Ketch :-)

  • 5 of 5

10 Ketch is a gorgeous property right on the beach front, with a great layout and a lovely salt water pool. There is also a gas grill by the pool - great for grilling. The property is located far enough away from hotels etc. to ensure that the beach area in front of the house is not crowded and the neighborhood around it is all free-standing houses so it has a nice vibe.

Luann is a wonderful owner, very hands on and responsive to all questions. 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 and has excellent WiFi service for those who like to stay connected while they are on vacation. Really liked the on-tap cold water in the fridge and separate (large volume!) ice machine in the bar area.

Recommendation for a nice dinner destination not far from the property is Charlie's. "Must" visits are Porcupine and Lilly Pulitzer (love those Palm Beach styles for the Summer), both in the Wexford Village Shopping center.

Summary: with absolute beach front pricing this property is not suitable for everyone's budget, but the value for money is EXCELLENT!!

Amazing house, easy living & fantastic owner!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT house for our multigenerational family vacation! Every family had their "space" and the kitchen was large enough to work around (or with) each other. What was most spectacular was the easy access to the beach! It was literally right there! If the kids had enough of the beach, they could come back and jump in the pool, and go back & forth without lugging tons of stuff. If we forgot one thing, it was easy to go back & get it. There was enough outdoor seating for everyone at the pool, and three umbrellas for shade. The house came with 4 really nice beach chairs which was a bonus! There was also a shower the rinse off the sand and a beautiful grill. If we had any questions Luann was right on it! She was so incredibly responsive - even on a holiday week! This house was a true gem!

Perfect family vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal setup for our family vacation for ourselves, our kids and grandkids. The house was very well-equipped and perfectly located. Having a private pool with just steps to the beach was fabulous. The owner was very communicative and responsive. She provided excellent customer service. We would highly recommend this vacation rental and we plan to rent again as well!

10 Ketch

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd year we took our entire family to 10 Ketch. It is easily large enough to house 3 families comfortably. 10 Ketch has numerous amenities for any family to have a wonderful and memorable vacation. Our entire family enjoyed our week at 10 Ketch immensely. Our family is looking forward to spending many more vacations in the years to come at 10 Ketch.

Excellent house with amazing ocean views

  • 4 of 5

This house has outstanding ocean views and beach access with an excellent pool/patio area. It was everything my family was looking for. Wonderful views from four of the bedrooms and especially from the living/dining area. There is nothing like enjoying a local caught low country boil while looking out at the ocean! House was filled out with very nice amenities - everything we needed was there. The owner, Luann, was very attentive and very helpful throughout the process and during our stay there. Overall, an excellent stay at a wonderful house.
