Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay at 4 Dinghy. The house is an awesome location to the beach and other Palmetto Dunes amenities. The house was decently well equipped with things but a few kitchen items may need to be purchased or brought with you. The beach towels that were provided were a huge plus and helped in packing with kids. The pool was very nice- some shade and some sun. The beds were comfortable and in general we were very happy. We had some issues with hornet nest and the owner/rental property managers responded within hours of our inquiry for help. They also followed up to confirm that things were ok. I highly recommend this house for rental.

Hands Down Best Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first rental in Hilton Head. We loved it. The house was perfect for my family of 4, 2 college kids along with my parents. The beach is so close and the pool is a great bonus. We loved the layout of the house. Quiet for those who are late risers, getting them up with the smell of breakfast. The screened in porch was perfect for morning coffee and meals. We spent a great deal of time outside. The beds were comfortable and house is well stocked. We loved the 2 refrigerators and ice makers. I saved the best for last, the owner Luann! Our rental process was the most personable experience of my many years renting beach homes. Luann offers so much information and is available for all your questions. We will be definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We do try hard to make your experience as wonderful as possible--we know vacations are as important to you as they are to us. And we really appreciate your alerting us to the broken part on the fridge door--it allowed us to order the part the next day, and have it installed the following week. Feedback such as yours from our guests helps us keep the house in good condition, and to fix little problems before they become big. Please do visit again!

Splendid Rental, Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We (3 adults) enjoyed this rental very much! It was spacious, clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The screened porch was a major selling point in deciding on this house and it didn't disappoint. Unfortunately, it was chilly during our visit so time wasn't spent enjoying the pool. Instead we shopped, took day trips to Savannah and Bluffton, and enjoyed some fine dining. Old Fort Pub (beautiful views) and Michael Anthony's Cucina Italian (the crispy duck was very good) restaurants were two of our favorites.

The owner was readily available to answer questions about the area and provided excellent customer service from day one of our inquiry about the house.

I would recommend this rental to a friend. We can't wait to return to Hilton Head! Thanks Luann.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you didn't have great weather during your visit! I know you will be back to Hilton Head again and I'm sure it will be better! You were great guests and I appreciate all the feedback you provided. Have a wonderful summer and I hope to host you again sometime! Let me know if I can answer any questions about a potential winter visit. Luann

Great location in Palmetto Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in September, 2015 and had a total of 6 adults and 2 small children and had plenty of space and a great stay. You cannot beat this location and the home is more than stocked with everything you may need while here (other than food). There were games to play on the screened in porch and the bedrooms were nice to relax in. We loved the open floor-plan for the living/dining & kitchen. The laundry room/storage room is a great addition. Again, the location is wonderful, very close to ride to the Dunes House & the General Store for some breakfast in the morning, and you have a nice pool to swim in as well but get it heated if you go late in the year, it was cold!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to our home in Hilton Head! Yes, I agree, heating the pool helps alot in the fall-- even though the days stay warm, the nights get cool and the heater helps maintain the temperature. Almost all pools on HH are heated via propane, and we charge our pool heat at as low a cost as possible to the guest, because we think it makes your visit so much more enjoyable. Because we sign a contract and have a great rate, I think we can do it less than many other properties. We look forward to having you come again!

A great week and gre time in HHI

  • 5 of 5

I Thought I would write a quick review of our stay at 4 Dinghy. The stay was great. Besides for Oceanfront, I am not sure you could pick a better house for it ease and proximity to the beach and the beach path. The house is better equipped than my own home. We even found a crock pot to use for dinner one night. The screened in porch is awesome in the morning and evenings for chilling. The house is exactly like the pictures. Luann is so nice to deal with and trust worthy. Even if this house was not as good as it is, I would still rent from Luann because of how she has her act together. She provides you everything you need including the best places to get pizza. We have been coming to HHI for quite sometime now but we will always try to use this house from here on out. In fact we just came home and sent in our check for Thanksgiving week to Luann and 4 Dinghy.

Thanksgiving in HHI !

  • 4 of 5

What a neat time to be on the Island (Thanksgiving) and spend a week at 4 Dinghy. The house is freshly painted with a new ceiling in the first floor. House has the look and smell of new construction. I can only imagine the cost but it tells you the level Luann (the Owner) must want to keep her home at. Most of work although nice was not crucial. And from what I can tell it was only about half way done. I can’t wait to get back and see it completed. The neat thing about this stay was because the temperature was not as warm as summer, we ended up spending more time in the house. It did not disappoint. We have always said the house was well stocked but finding the games and puzzles really provided for some good family time. I said it in my September review, renting from Luaan is a real pleasure. It is great to work with a true professional and nice person.

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming back for a second visit this year! You did catch us in the middle of some renovations, and thanks for your patience! That work has been completed and look for additional improvements to come over next fall and winter. We have even more games for the off-season, thanks to the wonderful company that makes the game Sequence. Come try them all out!
