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
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
Thanks so much for letting us rent your vacation home! This location and property has everything a group could possibly want on a beach vacation. We plan to make this our place for future beach vacations. Dawn was responsive to every question we had. I highly recommend renting this vacation home. You won't regret it!
Just 1/2 mile from Coligny Plaza, you can easily walk or bike to many great restaurants, shops, mini golf, gyms, tennis courts, marinas and of course the BEACH! Miles of bike paths connect the best of the island together, making for an enjoyable day of sightseeing anytime.
