About Wayne Booker

Mary Jo and Wayne are native Philadelphians who moved to Dublin, Ohio in 1981. They have been married for 45 years and have 4 sons and wonderful daughter-in-laws who have given them 7 beautiful grandchildren. Wayne retired from the Naval Reserve with the rank of Commander after 22 years of service. Wayne works in the M & A business and is a licensed commercial real estate agent. He also teaches small business management at Franklin University. Mary Jo actively manages some of the grandchildren during the week and teaches religious education in the evenings.

Wayne Booker purchased this house in 1998

Why Wayne Booker chose Island Areas

We have been going to Hilton Head since 1984 and love the island. We grew up going to the Jersey Shore, but find so many more amenities on the island. Our house is in a very private residential area, so our beaches are never crowded. We are just a few steps from the beach.

What makes this house unique

While a ranch house doesn't look very 'beachy' on the outside (it does on the inside), it is very nice to not carry suitcases and groceries up several flights of steps. This makes it especially nice for seniors and parents with young children. Our yard is very private, and has a great mix of sun and shade at all parts of the day. It is sometimes hard to leave your nice chair around the pool and go to the beach (even thought it is very close).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have been coming to HHI for many years and have stayed in many different places - but I think we have finally discovered our favorite place/HERE! We love your house, the location, and the pool. This was probably the coolest weather we have had here in years, so we were thankful for the heated pool. Hope to come back again in the future.

The house was everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our growing family. We had plenty of room, the location was perfect, and the pool was wonderful!

Owner's Response: Thanks, April for writing such a nice review. We love our home and spend a couple of months there every year and try to make it as nice as possible for both my family and our guests. If there is ever a problem, we feel personally embarrassed and try to make it right immediately. After all, it is our home too!

Great place to just relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

A great property. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for just relaxing. Plus, we like to cook in the evening, and the kitchen and dinning room, open to the living room, was very good for cooking and eating. The two master bedrooms were spacious. I loved the private backyard, with the indoor heated pool and spacious area to just lounge around, have a drink, take a nap, read a book. TV, DVD and video games, too! :-) Five adults vacationed here and found it quite nice. It is just a stones throw away from the beach, and by car there are sooooo many restaurants nearby. I would recommend this place to my family and friends!

Owner's Response: This is pretty typical of the response that we get from the surveys that are returned by every guest when they send back their emergency key. Sometimes they report problems to us that we are unaware of, and we view that as a positive because we know where to improve. One guest compained that the mattresses were hard. We really had no idea because we only sleep in one bedroom when we visit. But sure enough, he was right and we replaced all the mattresses and box springs (5) except for the comfy one which we had always used. We respond promptly to all problems and have trusted vendors to take care of them. We take it personally if a guest is unhappy, because this is our home, not a motel room.

Beautiful home, close to the beach with plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

I loved our visit to Hilton Head. This home is beautiful and allowed our family to have the space and comfort we needed. It was close to the beach which was perfect with young kids. Wayne was so easy to work with and so nice. We would recommend this home to any family looking for a great family beach experience!

Great house and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the owner checked in with us to make sure everything was going well. When we told him the coffee maker was broken, he had another one shipped to us right away. This was a fantastic, family-friendly house with a beautiful beach (water was like bath water in July) only steps away.

Very nice beach home. Beautiful setting, 100 feet to the beach, great pool, close to shopping area.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the property very much. The rooms were spacious. We loved the pool and the proximity to the beach and shopping. The house was very clean. The property is shaded by very large trees. This is a great family vacation spot. The owner was very quick to respond to a problem we had, very professional. He also called us to let us know that maintenance personnel were going to be on the property and asked our permission for them to come. We would stay there again.

Prime location, comfortable home, attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

Never been to Hilton Head? Much of the island is owned by large resort "plantations." North Forest Beach is a quiet, elegant community of mostly single family homes nestled among live oaks and palmettos and arranged in rows from the beach. 21 Jacana is in the third row which means you are on the spectacular beach in less than 100 steps. Or you can walk by a lagoon. Just head three blocks in the opposite direction. Want to shop but avoid the car driving and parking lots that plague you back home? Put a pack on your back and walk to shopping almost entirely on the beach. Never rented a house for a vacation? This one is your private resort. It is attractive and exactly as pictured with a wonderful floor plan, great privacy and a beautiful pool with a heating system that really works. Nervous about renting directly from an owner who lives in Ohio? We have been here for a month, made three calls about relatively minor issues, got through immediately and problems were addressed instantly. We've rented houses and apartments all over the world, all with on-site "managers," but never had attentive responses that equalled those by this owner. Added to that was very detailed and cordial help before we came. We've signed up for next year.

Owner's Response: David, thanks for such a kind review! We really get a lot of pleasure ourselves when our guests enjoy our home as much as we do! We would love to live there year round, but with 5 grandkids in Central Ohio, that is not going to happen anytime soon!

Visit Savannah, GA, a beautiful city with terrific walking tours and great restaurants on the waterfront. Home of Paula Deen of the Food Channel. One hour drive thru wonderful low country roads.

Also visit Charleston, SC, one of the most charming cities in the world. Site of Fort Sumter and many historic homes. It is about 2.5 hours north, but still close enough for a day trip.

Beaufort, SC is about 1 hour north and it has many of the same types of historical homes. It is the location for a number of very popular movies.
