About Maggie Ornduff

Steve and I met in college. I grew up on the North Shore of Chicago and Steve is a native Kansas Citian. He attended University of Missouri (MIZZOU) and I attended the private womens college next door, Stephens College. We married soon after graduation and started our careers in the Kansas City area. Our first dwelling was that apartment with hand me down furniture from our families….the olive green loveseat, cocktail table - typical black iron outdoor table and a rocking chair…that was it! We made enough to pay our rent and Steve would be so excited that after paying bills we had $25.00 to last two weeks..wahoo!

We learned to save & work hard!

In the early 2000s we were at a point to make a risk and a difference for ourselves and others. We bought a business out of bankruptcy and turned it around within a few years.

In 2006 we started Ornduff Properties, LLC. Our first investment was a town home right across from the ski resort of Winter Park, CO. Soon after a historical loft in downtown River Market of Kansas City (2006), a Villa in Sea Pines - Hilton Head Island, SC (2009) and now a Beach House in Sea Pines - Hilton Head Island, SC.(2013)

Our goal was to buy places where we like to go and share with our guests who appreciate WE DO NOT RENT TO JUST ANYONE! We speak with each of our guests to make sure that our properties are the right fit for them as well as us.

Our expectations are high when we travel and expect only the best….this is why we rent as home owners…there is NO middle are speaking directly to us.

We hope you'll consider the beach house….

Maggie Ornduff purchased this house in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at many vrbos but this one was our favorite. Maggie was extremely helpful prior to our trip with so much information about the home and things for our very active group to do while on the island. The home is beautifully decorated and we loved the layout. Perfect for our two families. We really loved hanging out on the front porch and relaxing in the pool. Maggie also gave us the name of a local caterer who came over one evening to prepare an amazing meal for our group. She also did the grocery shopping for us prior to our arrival so we would be ready to relax as soon as we arrived. Loved the home, the owner, the beach, drinks at the Salty Dog, bike riding daily, running trails, the 700 lb shark we caught while fishing! , sunsets at the beach, etc. We all want to stay much longer next year

Elegant Retreat Combining Historic Savannah & A Spectacular Beach

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sisters and I totally enjoyed our week-long stay at 17 Snowy Egret on Hilton Head. This beautiful house - right near the beach - provided an ideal backdrop for all of us to enjoy each other's company while affording each of us our own beautiful bedroom and bathroom. We started each day with peaceful walks on the beach, where the ocean offered up interesting gifts for nature lovers, and we encountered only a handful of walkers, bikers and friendly dogs, despite this being a busy period. Our weather (mid-April) was perfect! We spent time in the pool and spa on the property, too, reading and relaxing. Being only an hour from Savannah, we took two partial days to explore the historic treasures of the city, and discovered the cute town of Bluffton (midway between Hilton Head and Savannah), as well as the amazing Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. This home-for-the-week was also a perfect place to cook up lovely dinners and breakfasts, though the best meal out that we experienced was an outdoor seafood lunch at Hudson's Seafood on the Docks and coffee at the Corner Perk in downton Old Bluffton was a big hit. We can't recommend this rental home enough for its setting and elegant appointments. The owners are fastidious hosts and it shows in every detail. Hope to make it back!

Beautiful home and views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 3 children had a wonderful vacation. This home is beautifully furnished and comfortable. There are great views from the deck where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee - peaceful and relaxing. Maggie certainly has covered everything to make your vacation a pleasant experience.

At this location it is a quick walk to the beach and not far from all the attractions of Sea Pines.

Yes, we would love to return to this fabulous house and we would recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Hilton Head was outstanding as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. Everything was in perfect quality and very warming and inviting for our stay. The amenities also provided made the stay that much more enjoyable - nothing was missed! The level of customer service and responsiveness was outstanding. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future!

Enjoying our 3rd year at this wonderful home on Hilton Head Island, S.C.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home has become our annual home for my family's annual week in Hilton Head. The house is located an easy couple of minute walk to the beach & a short bike ride to The South Marina where our Grandkids enjoy their Salty Dog ice cream every night.

The home has it's own pool where the kids can mix their water time between the ocean & the pool.

The recently renovated interior allows us to comfortably handle my wife & I plus 4 other adults & 6 children.

We really enjoy the spacious kitchen/dining room & the gas grill that allows us to avoid the crowds at restaurants on the island and eat most meals at home.

All in all the home is perfect for our needs & I recommend it to any family group that wants to have a comfortable home for a week at Hilton Head.

Beautiful accommodating home just A few steps to the ocean. With all the comforts of home and more

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 5 children stay for a week to celebrate our 40 th anniversary. This home easily accommodated 12 people. And everyone had their own space. Maggie was very helpful with tips ahead of time so everything was set. Maggie responded quickly to any of our questions about the house during our stay. We loved it. Words cannot explain how wonderful this home and location is. Fantastic

A Well Stocked Home

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes in Hilton Head for over 13 years. This house was the first home that really supplied a lot of extra items that we didn't have to bring or purchase. There were beach chairs, beach towels, soft soap, trash bags, dish washing detergent, dish soap, cleaning supplies, etc. The home is well maintained, decorated tastefully and the furniture is very comfortable. Staying there we felt as if we were at home and not a rental property. It was easy to work with Maggie and she took care of any issue we had in a timely manner. Would definitely rent again from Maggie!
