Best location/view ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had our Christmas family gathering in Hilton Head this year and our stay was most enjoyable. The owner, Marc, was extremely accommodating- greeting us when we arrived and making sure we had everything we needed. The beachfront location/view from the Dingy Lane property is spectacular. We were able to walk or bike on the beach every day with our pets and our grandchildren. The kids especially enjoyed the pool/hot tub.

The spacious accommodations allowed everyone to gather for meals and celebrate Christmas together. Even with 11 people (five families} sharing this rental, we all had our private space.

We highly recommend this beautiful vacation home.

The Best on the Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation rental! Marc, the owner, has provisioned the house for entertaining and comfortable living. The detail with which he stocks the house in unbelievable. Any problems during your stay, just call or text and the problem is resolved immediately. Location is perfect - private yet right on the beach. Very, very comfortable and yet private for multiple couples or large families. The best review I can give is to say "I want to come back!". Thanks Marc.

9 Dinghy Lane

  • 5 of 5

The property exterior is spectacular from the balconies to the pool to the beach. It is one of if not the only three story house on the beach in Palmetto Dunes so the views of the ocean from the upper level balcony are unparalleled. Some of the guests thought the interior could use some updating and that the layout is less than ideal for three families, but that could be personal taste and did not detract from all having a good time. The property has everything I look for in a HHI property - ocean view and access, nice pool and hot tub, outdoor showers to clean off after the beach, views, nice kitchen, nice living area, beach chairs, umbrella and towels provided, bicycles included, and best of all, pet friendly. The pool and hot tub are the biggest and nicest of any of the HHI properties I have visited. The owner was extremely helpful and responded immediately to a couple of smaller items in need of repair or attention. You cannot go wrong with this property or the owner.

Dinghy Lane and the perfect beach

  • 5 of 5

Marc's place on Dinghy Lane is a real charmer. He's provided nearly everything, and lots of things you didn't ever expect. A juicer? Twelve beach-towels? Coffees. Spices and all the possible pots and pans to cook with them? A smoker? An outdoor frig? A Crock-pot??? Chefs, of course, will bring their own knives. Of course, and we brought a sous vide. But bet he'll have one there soon with our mentioning!

He's proud of his beautiful place, and whats to make sure that you enjoy every minute. The hot tub wasn't heating very well, "I'll get Jose over tomorrow". There was a plug in on the the bathroom that wasn't working for the hair-dryer. "I'll get the electrician in tomorrow," And he did. Everything else, and I mean everything, was in perfect order. Quiet, a great family place.

And the location? Perfect! We've been in HH before, and this time brought the extended family. Hot tubs, bikes, swimming, kites on the beach. The dogs were simply thrilled to run and greet the other dogs and people. Central, easy to everywhere. Even kayaks. Easy. Down the street at the General Store.

The best of places to stay. We plan to return with the brood.

Owner's Response: Hi Deb, Thanks so much for taking the time to review. Silvana, Elmis and i are committed to make 9 Dinghy a very easy and comfortable vacation. If my guests would only understand that it's a house and as such, subject to things malfunctioning. I wish i had a nickel for every time a guest said "I didn't want to bother you". Whatever it is won't repair itself, but if we know the problem would be taken care of quickly and efficiently and in a manner that would be transparent to the guest. I to provide everything that my guests would need and would definitely source a sous vide... if I knew what it was. We hope to see you back next year. Thanks, Marc, Silvana and Elmis

Beautiful home, fabulous location, glorious beach--would return in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Marc's home for 4 nights Feb 23-28 and loved it! A total of 10 adults and 3 grandchildren were comfortably housed. Marc supplied the pack n plays, highchairs, and stair gates that we needed. We loved all the patios and the views from the house. The pool (paid extra to have it heated) and hot tub were great. The beach is outstanding and felt so private. We particularly loved having a fire pit, firewood, and beach chairs to make a fire at night (all provided by Marc). Also a favorite was all the bikes that we could use. Perhaps the best thing we did was hire a private caterer (name supplied by Marc) to make all our evening meals at the house with clean up included-----he was outstanding. We would love to return and stay longer. Thanks for everything Marc!
