About Dennis and Betty Kelly

Our family has enjoyed this Harbourtown home with our children, grandchildren, and old family friends for almost 30 years. We hope you enjoy our home too!

Dennis and Betty Kelly purchased this house in 1988

Why Dennis and Betty Kelly chose Hilton Head

We wanted a home that would be fun for us to use as a couple, but we also knew that we wanted a place that would be ideal for family reunions for younger people. This place is simply perfect!

What makes this house unique

A few steps and you are on the 16th, 17th and 18th greens of the famous Harbourtown Golf Course, a major stop on the PGA tour. It is a five minute stroll to the Marina with its shops, restaurants and water sports/tours. It is a ten minute drive to the SeaPines Beach Club with five miles of pristine white sand on the Atlantic Ocean - BEAUTIFUL!

Weekly bike rentals nearby (they will give a discount if you mention you rented with us- "Riding Tigers Bikes" at 843-686-5833), for miles of biking on designated paved biking paths.

Wow! What a great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect vacation home for our family (ages 8-84). We took the Gator Tour at the Forest

Preserve, but saw as much wildlife out back in and around the lagoon. The living areas including all the bedrooms were spacious and clean. We enjoyed the large private pool, gas grill, and convenience of a short walk to Harbor town, and longer bike ride to the beach. We feel very lucky to have found 9 Mizzenmast for our vacation home and would recommend it highly.

Harbor Town find!

  • 5 of 5

How delightful to find a pet-friendly home for our family Christmas gathering (3 couples, 2 children) with ample bedroom layouts, large living room, large outdoor deck facing a lagoon, and all within short walking distance to Harbor Town..perfect! The house is on a near-cul de sac making it great space for kid's light-saber duels, bike-with-training-wheels practice, and even yard tag. Daily walks to Harbor Town playground plus Greg Russell under the Oak Tree made the location a great choice, as well as being able to walk the golf course for morning exercise. The owners are most accommodating, even tracking down and mailing left-behind clothing...thanks, Dennis!

Excellent vacation at this home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation home for my family. The house was spacious and clean with a gorgeous swimming pool. There was so much wildlife about because of the location on the lagoon that we had the pleasure of many birds and nature sounds. Being so close to town meant we didn't have to use our car but could easily and safely stroll into town for great dining and shopping. We were also very close to both tennis and golf.. The four bedrooms were what we needed and they were lovely. All in all, this was a successful vacation for us at an excellent home away from home. We highly recommend others to experience this delight. Joyce b.

Perfect family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our family reunion here and were so pleased with the accommodations. The house provided 8 adults with plenty of space, seating and privacy. The kitchen was fully equipped with all new appliances, granite countertops and ample dishes, glassware and utensils. It is a very light and spacious comfortable home. The outside was a wonderful place to view the wildlife. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim in the large pool but we enjoyed deck life as well as the indoor space.

The location is just a five minute walk to Harbortown where there are several good resturants with live music in the evenings. The Harbortown golf course is minutes away as is the tennis courts. There was very little use for a car as you are basically in the center of so much activities. We did drive to the beach club which has a wonderful view and a diverse menu.

The owners were so helpful that we all want to return for our next family reunion. They helped make this the best reunion . I would definitely recommend this property to family, friends and anyone going to Hilton Head for a vacation.

Superb location and a true home from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent just over two weeks here with our son, wife and two small grandchildren joining us for final week. Having been visiting Hilton Head from the UK on and off for over fifteen years, the first thing that struck us before even entering the house was it's perfect location to Harbour Town. The car was not necessary for the daily visits for coffee, the playground, local shops or a cocktail in the evening as it was such a lovely walk or bike ride.

The house itself immediately made us feel very comfortable and there was ample space for us to spread about. All the amenities were as described and the kitchen perfect. Due to the little ones we often ate at home and bbq'ed, sometimes visited by the resident alligator who kept his distance but fascinated the four year old, who can't wait to see it again.

The family also fell in love with the Beach Club which didn't exist last time we were here. It was wonderful with marvellous facilities for showering and changing, easily rented chairs and umbrellas and great restaurants and shops. We were even entertained by pods of dolphins cavorting very close to shore.

Being golfers we played a few rounds on the Sea Pines' courses and were grateful to be able to mention Dennis and receive a reduction!

Finally, speaking of the owners, we cannot praise them highly enough. They were extremely helpful, always prepared to go the extra mile. My husband spoke to Dennis several times and I think he feels he's found a new friend. As for me, I must mention Nathan, who cleaned the pool beautifully whilst having hilarious conversations with me, mimicking my accent - a true and valued character!

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and look forward to returning.

Excellent Location and House!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I (8 total) were looking to check out HHI for the first time and were lucky to find this place! The bedrooms were great for accommodating all of us and the living room was a great space for all of us to relax at the end of the night. Our two favorite aspects of the house were the patio overlooking the lagoon and the pool. We spent our mornings drinking coffee and eating breakfast while overlooking the lagoon -which there isn't a better way to wake up and start the day with that view - and would sometimes end our nights there! We saw a lot of wildlife (make sure to put bird seed in the feeder to see a variety of birds!) and the neighborhood gator swan up and down the lagoon throughout the day (no worries, he didn't come anywhere close to the house, but was so cool watching it swim around). The pool was a great place for us to cool down in the middle of the hot days when we did not make it to the beach and with it being lit up at night, was a great place to take a quick dip before bed.

The house is a short walk from Harbour Town shops/lighthouse, which made it really nice to walk over in the evening to check out the events or have dinner/drinks. With only being allowed 2 cars at the house, we could park our third car at the public lot at Harbour Town and had no issues leaving it there all week. You are about 10-15 mins from Coligny Beach or shopping centers. It was really conveniently located to anywhere.

The best part was how helpful the owners were prior to and during our stay at the house! On arrival, the coffee pot had a crack down it, so I notified the owners and to our surprise, a new coffee pot was delivered 2 days later! The owners are amazing and truly want you to enjoy your stay at their place.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone and the hardest part will be leaving the view behind at the end of the week! Coffee in the morning hasn't been the same!
