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.

Great home, easy walk to beach, has all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at 4 Dinghy! The house was even better than we expected - extremely clean, and so nicely laid out for our multi-family trip. We all had our own space, and plenty of kitchenware for our party of 9. Every detail seemed to be thought of - beach towels, beach toys, even a wagon to make the very easy walk to the beach, even easier! The access to the beach is a stone's throw away, and we loved the outdoor shower at the house to rinse off before heading upstairs or into the pool. The pool was well maintained, and the backyard was very relaxing. The kids loved all the games provided, and Alexa, too! Luann was absolutely amazing to rent from - she kept us up to date leading into the trip, provided tons of information to make our first stay on Hilton Head Island fabulous, and checked in on us upon arrival and during the week. We had a great time and would highly recommend renting this property or anything other from Luann. Thank you!

Perfect house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

4 Dinghy was in an awesome location, very close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The house was very clean and well stocked for cooking, entertaining kids and trips to the beach. Luanne was very helpful with information and recommendations, and very responsive to any questions/concerns we had while visiting. I would definitely recommend to my friends!

Easy Breezy Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, her daughters, and grandchildren rented this lovely, comfortable home for a week's vacation. The home had everything we needed - the kitchen was completely outfitted with everything you'd need to cook at home, the beds were comfortable, and the location is outstanding. The path to the beach was literally just outside of the pool area. It was a 2 minute walk at the most. Not having to cross a road made it very safe for the grandkids. The screened in porch was a favorite spot for all of us. We enjoyed sipping a cup of coffee in the morning, listening to the waves in the distance, and loved ending our day on the same porch with dinner and drinks. The floor plan of the house is perfect for families. The master suite is separate from the two additional bedrooms and the loft area. Everyone had their own space. Luann (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with. She texted and emailed during our visit to make sure everything was to our liking. I would definitely rent from her again.

This amazing home has everything we want and more for our family! It starts with a homeowner who cares and wants to be sure everything is in order, then it is the property, which has everything you need--including beach towels, which I love not having to haul, a well-stocked kitchen, a fabulous pool and porch, wonderful gathering spaces, or private nooks to read quietly, comfortable beds throughout, short walk to the lovely beach. Truly, we can't imagine going anywhere else--thank you sharing your home!

Great house with pool and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really have nothing but good things to say about this house and location. It is super close to the beach which was not busy at all when we were there. We were very thankful that there was a beach cart, beach chairs, and beach towels for us to use. We also used the heated pool everyday (which does get pretty good sun). The house was clean and stocked with basically everything you would need. We stayed with our 1.5 year old son and our parents and it worked perfect fo us. Luann was a great host and made sure our stay was great! Would go back in a heartbeat!

This house was incredible. I told the owner the reason I chose it was because of the bright and cheerful makes you happy. The pictures don't show how well laid out the house is. The different levels give so much privacy when traveling with other couples. The children's loft is perfect for 4 or 5 and decorated for fun! The owner couldn't have been nicer and kept in touch making sure our stay was perfect, and it was! The property was well equipped and even had a waffle iron, however, "ALEXA" was the best, a unique touch! This house is a must and only steps away from the beach. Without a doubt, I will return!
