About The Owner

Mick & Terri McDonough. I grew up in the S.C. and Mick grew up in South Florida. We both love the beach.After spending a Summer here during college break, I knew Hilton Head was a special place. When we decided to buy a vacation home,,there was no other place even considered. 12 years ago we decided to make the big move,,and now live here permanently. Come see our little bit of paradise!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Island Areas

The lowcountry has a charm of its own. Unique in its beauty of a protected enviroment , with lush tropical live oaks, palmetto, palm and pine trees all the way to the ocean front.The beaches are absolutely beautiful. Hard packed and great for walking, biking, kiting and shell searching. Great golf courses and tennis courts. Many wonderful restaurants and shopping.

Lots to do!!

Livonia, MI (Metro Detroit area)

We throughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very well kept and only one minute from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house is far enough from the plaza to make you feel secluded, but walkable at the same time. Great kitchen. Bedrooms were perfect. We graded this house at 4.99 stars. The only thing it needs is some upgrades to some of the outside furniture. When you consider the condition of the house, the hot tub and pool, and the proximity to the beach; this is a great value. We also appreciated the accessibility and welcoming demeanor of the owners.

Thanks Teri & Mick for a great experience.

Overall Excellent family vacation! We would definitely return.

  • 4 of 5

Recommendations for next visit: new mattress/box spring for MBR and please correct very slow drain upstairs shower. Loved the flow of the house, perfect for a family beach week. Proximity to beach and Coligney Circle was great. Teri and Mick very responsive to any questions pre visit and then when we needed an extra pool cleaning after a big rain. Thanks for the memories!

Owner's Response: Hi Katherine, Thank you for the recommendations. That is the only way we know. We have addressed the slow drain.... and will try our best to stay on top of this. It is ongoing due to so much beach sand. We flipped the master bed so hopefully that helps. Would love to "host" you again in the near future. Thank you, Terri

Great house with easy access to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this house.It was on a quiet street, so there were no noise disturbances.It was only a short walk to the beach, and it was easy for the children even carrying their beach supplies.It was clean and many items were provided so that we didn't have to buy them at the store (ie. paper products, cleaning supplies). The kitchen was well stocked with most everything we needed.The only thing we wished for was a cookie sheet, not that it's a necessity! We loved being able to sit on the front porch and watch the kids in the pool or just enjoy the outdoors. One complaint is that there is not a lot of living space in the house. We had five young children so a little more space for them to occupy would have been nice. Also one of the children had to sleep on the pull-out bed which was in the hallway upstairs between 2 bedrooms. Because of the way the house was constructed, when the adults wanted to have conversation after the kids went to bed, the only place to have it was in the living room. All of that noise carried upstairs where that child was sleeping. It didn't turn out to be a huge problem, but we had to be careful not to have any loud conversations! Overall, though, we had a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Candy,,I wish I had known you did not have a cookie sheet. I would have dropped one by..That is important!! I know our family love homemade choc chip cookies. Yes,,I get it that the open upstairs den is not convenient,,,when kids are sleeping and adults are not. Hope you will come back next HHI vacation. :-) Terri

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this Hilton Head Island vacation house. The House, Pool and Spa was clean, updated and held our party of 10 people with plenty of room to spare! The location was perfect in relation to the public beach access which was a 2 min walk from the house. The homeowners were fantastic to work with and made themselves available if needed. I will definitely be returning to Hilton Head Island and would have absolutely no reservations in staying at this home again!!!

This house is in the perfect location. A very short walk (only 4 houses deep) to a perfectly quiet (but not dead) and beautiful part of the beach. Just about 1 mile from Cologny Square where we could bike to restaurants, shops, and the Piggly Wiggly grocery store. Quiet streets and bike paths suitable for taking rides with children.

The pool is in great shape, as well as the hot tub (which heated very quickly). The house itself is in great shape, but aspects could use a little love. We had to do some child proofing since we had a crawling infant in tow. Not a big deal. The couches were falling apart a little bit as the cushions were difficult to keep from sliding off under the couch cover. We had two bathroom sinks that were clogged up, but Terri's husband was quick to come address. However, the tub drain upstairs was also pretty backed up. The grill got the job done, but has seen better days (cooking mainly on the right side). Beds were comfy and layout was decent. Air conditioning is pumping, it can get ice cold if you like it that way.

While we've stayed in some nicer homes in the area for comparable (or even less) prices, I might stay here again solely for the location. Not quite 5 stars, but we were able to have a fantastic vacation enjoying our family and relaxing. Thank you!

Great House! Super location - close to beach and Coligny.

  • 4 of 5

House was comfortable and clean. The family room was a little small and the sisal rug in the family room was a little hard for crawling babies and bare feet. Kitchen has been remodeled and is nice. We would come again!
