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.

Very conducive home for multiply family stay

  • 4 of 5

Although the home is older, the layout worked well for my sister and her family, my parents, and my family. We all had our own space but utilized the large living area and screened in porch to accommodate all of us at the same time. The near proximity to the beach was much appreciated as we came back to the house as needed for lunch and reapplying sunblock. The pool was a nice plus too, especially for the kids and my parents. Luann labels EVERYTHING so there is no guess work as to where things are or how to use them. The house is well stocked with all the appliances, kitchen tools and towels you will need for your getaway. Luann is also available during your trip if anything should need attention. She gets back with you promptly. As with any beach rental, by the middle of summer, the house could use better cleaning. Understandably, the house has a short turnover time, so just the surface gets cleaned. Pillows and mattresses are due to be replaced. Overall, we had a great experience!

This house has it all

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house! It's a very short walk to a nice beach with large tidal pools at low tide. My kids had a blast discovering all kinds of stranded sea creatures. We enjoyed the pool several times a day. There are neighboring houses but the dense landscape makes you feel secluded.

The property owner, Luann, has the best customer service - actually she makes you feel like your part of the family. Whole Foods and the best Kroger I've ever seen are just minutes away. We hope to visit again soon.

Incredible Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional property! The proximity to the beach is priceless and we will certainly stay again. The description is absolutely accurate.

PROS- Clean, well maintained, every little amenity thought of and available, literally 3 minute walk to the beach, fun perfect sized pool, screened in porch, HUGE kitchen and living area, washer/dryer, super fun kid room (bring back the bunkbeds the kids said lol), 3 full baths. I could go on and on.

CONS- 2 things the owners cannot help at all-- 1. layout of house is strange if you have young kids. We did not have enough bedrooms for the kids to stay on the main floors, so they stayed in the kids room (fun for them). However, since we stayed in the master bedroom, the kids were far away from us- which they did not like. Minor issue, but they are young and worried about needing us at night etc. 2. The garage is on bottom as with most beach houses. Just something to be aware of- you will be carrying things up stairs. The only other CON I can think of is that the walkway to the beach was not obvious for us, so we spent awhile exploring in order to find it. So take note: From pool area take the small cement stone walkway away from the house, take a right, walk a bit to another cement stone walkway, then left onto a paved walkway. This will lead to a bridge with stairs that lead to the beach.

Here's a tip, bring bug spray and citronella candles. The mosquitos were high in number at the pool area and we got eaten up the first evening!

We were three families staying together and we were more than comfortable. Everything was provided that we could think of (except a muffin tin!). The kids said best vacation ever and I have to agree. Highly recommend this gem! LuAnn is especially helpful and very concerned and considerate of her guests. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review with great suggestions for other guests! As you suggest, it is important that kids using the upstairs bedroom be comfortable sleeping upstairs, and old enough to come down the spiral stairs by themselves. And we will look into getting a "to the beach" sign--what a fun idea! Muffin tin--coming right up! Thanks for choosing us and please come visit again!

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!
