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. 14 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!!

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.

2 Robin was perfect for us. Very nice home, location is great for beach and last minute shopping.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved 2 Robin. The home is very nice. The pool is wonderful and the location is closer to the beach than we expected. Our 6 people and 3 generations enjoyed (and used) everything aspect of the home. The location is great for last minute grocery, pharmacy and beach stuff that we needed. We look forward to staying at this home again.

Great family time!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing!! It has everything you need! We cooked a lot and we had plenty of cookware and utensils. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and spa!!! We also loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch or lounge chairs by the pool! Not to mention the walk to beach was nothing... you can literally step out from the driveway and look down and see the ocean!! Very close! This was a perfect place for our family and with an 8 month old and a 7 year old, our oldest was able to enjoy the pool while the baby took naps!! It was a very relaxing place and we enjoyed our family time together!!

Unfortunately we had to leave due to Hurricane Irma..... which we obviously didn't plan for!! Terri went above and beyond to keep us informed on conditions and possible evacuations!! We had to cut our trip short by two nights and Terri refunded us the two night!! We appreciated that a lot because we know they didn't have to do that!! Overall, even with the hurricane, this was an amazing place with amazing owners!! Highly recommend and will return!!

Great vacation home for our family!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home to the beach is the best part! Plus it's a short drive to Coligny vPlaza, which has a lot of restaurants & shops. We really enjoyed the pool and overall the house was a perfect size and well taken care of. When we needed something for the house, the owners were very quick to respond.

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
