About Dawn Murphy

After moving from Northwest Ohio in 1989, my family has had the good fortune of living on North Forest Beach for the past 27 years. We now enjoy sharing our home with other families who can build memories of their own in this great family beach neighborhood!

Dawn Murphy purchased this house in 1997

Why Dawn Murphy chose Hilton Head

This home has everything a family could want, and we have spent many years adding to the fun. Boredom will never set with a playhouse, Wooden play set (with fort), trampoline with complete surround, outdoor ping pong table, swimming pool (with kiddie pool), and large fenced yard. Biking is safe & easy with nice paved path, not to mention the beach is just 2 blocks in front of the home.

What makes this house unique

Just 8 homes from the beach, you have the privacy you love, yet you are in the heart of the Hilton Head Island vacation area.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Best vacation house on Hilton Head

  • 5 of 5

Our group had four small families with children of different ages and we felt that we all had plenty of space in the house. The room with the bunk beds was great for the children. The pool was large and we swam in it every day. The children loved the trampoline and the adults loved playing ping pong. The beach was very close and easy to access. We would definitely rent this house again.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy all of the families enjoyed our the layout and amenities of our home! The pool is definitely a great bonus, especially with the kiddie pool for smaller children to enjoy (or adults!) I hope you all made some great vacation memories there! We look forward to having you back again very soon!

Great family rental!

  • 5 of 5

I had rented this lovely house with some friends, we all had kids and it worked out great! The kids loved the pool! The proximity to the beach was great also....just a short walk.

Lots of things to do around the area! Supermarkets were close by also!

Have already been speaking about possibly coming back again next summer!

Perfect Beach House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family loves staying at 1 Mallard! This was our third time renting this home and once again we were in our "happy place". We love the open layout of the home so the family can all be together. The pool and outdoor shower is wonderful. We enjoy riding bikes to Coligny Plaza and the beach. Every time we come back they have updated the home in some way and it is so well maintained. We have rented other homes in the past and I can honestly say they don't compare to 1 Mallard! Dawn is always quick to respond to any questions I have and even follows up to see if we have any suggestions on how to improve the home. Thank you for sharing your home with my family, we will keep coming back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoy the home as much as we do. We are renovating the hall bath this Fall and we'll see what else! I love being able to continue to improve the home for the enjoyment of our renters. Hope to have you back again next summer!

So convenient and inviting

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this family beach home was perfect! It was like being invited to stay with family friends at their summer home because the Murphys have their personal photos and favorite activities in the home. So many items were provided - inside and out. The convenience of having both a short, tree lined walk to the dune line at North Forrest Beach and an inviting pool in the yard was wonderful. We had three generations together for a week - all bedrooms on the same level, a large gathering room that was part of the large kitchen island, backyard activities for kids, easy parking at the front door....something to make everyone smile. 1 Mallard was a very special place. The list of ideas Dawn sent for things to do and places to eat was very complete, but we'll have to come back next year for we hardly left the neighborhood this trip!

Great Family Vaca Home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10, including 3 generations, enjoyed our stay here! Having a private pool was awesome! And the ping pong table & trampoline for the kids was great! The living area was big enough for all of us for a few meals in & for relaxing. Dawn was great to work with, checking on us & answering questions we had.

The walk to the beach was short, but getting over a huge sand dune was rough with a buggy & our grandkids, one in a stroller. We hope the city builds a small boardwalk for residents soon! Coligny Plaza is very close & a favorite of ours.

Thanks Dawn, for allowing us to share your home at our favorite Vacation spot!

Once again, had a great vacation staying at 1 Mallard. The house is perfect for families with kids. So much for them to do. Close walk to the beach and a big pool to relax in. We will never look for a different house to stay in on HHI.
