                                                                    We recently returned from a week stay at Hilton Head and have rated this as our top vacation spot. We are so thrilled to have found Bob and Cindy’s beautiful home. Once you’ve stayed here, you won’t want to go anywhere else! Their home is so large and furnished quite comfortably. The upstairs master is especially nice with a wonderful king bed and views of both the pool and lagoon. My wife and I stayed in this lovely home, located just a short walk from the beach and is convenient to shopping, dining and golfing. We walk to the beach in the morning then spend the rest of the day around the fabulous pool. The owners were extremely easy to work with and provided valuable information which made our trip go very smoothly. I will not hesitate to go back to this gorgeous setting!

                                                                    Mike & Terry B

                                                                    Connie B.Wichita ks

                                                                    This home was perfect for my family vacation. We had people from Kansas, Florida, Georgia, and West Virginia. We had 12 adults and 2 kiddos. We had plenty of room and more! The home was clean and well stocked for all of our needs. We also had an 8 month old and 2 year old - so having the pool was extremely nice when it was nap time. The commute to the beach was a little farther than we normally stay BUT it was not an issue. The Luce's were everything from friendly, informative, and gracious hosts! Their communication was impeccable! And the best -- we were hoping to see an alligator -- we did not take chances but we were extremely lucky to see one Thursday morning in the lagoon behind the house. She came up to our dock as we were watching her. So take heed and believe there are "gators" in the lagoon.

                                                                    Tim and Ronda C.

                                                                    Bob and Cindy's house is awesome. The house is beautiful and well stocked with whatever you need. The kitchen has it all and is spacious, clean and modern. The living area is spacious and extremely comfortable. The bedrooms are more than adequate and the master bedroom is incredible. The bathrooms with beautiful tile everywhere are modern, roomy and accommodating. We loved the swimming pool and spa. When not at the beach, it was useful and inviting. We love to rent bicycles, and so the short commute to the beach was lots of fun. And Bob and Cindy were easily accessible to answer our questions with patience, grace, and a spirit of cooperation and friendliness. A true vacation in paradise.

                                                                    A Little Piece of Paradise!

                                                                    I have visited Hilton Head a few times and stayed at beautiful homes, but this one was the very very best! I went with my two daughters' families, 5 adults and 5 children, and there was room enough for everyone. The house was just as pictured, immaculate and well appointed. Kitchen had every gadget and appliance you can ask for. Even a waffle maker! The kids really loved that. The kids really enjoyed the pool, kayaking and feeding the turtles. There was never a dull moment. We rented bikes and road them to the beach which was a few minutes away and not very crowded. The Luce's were great to work with and very engaged, answering any and all questions. I am definitely coming back to Hilton Head and renting this house again. It was so hard to leave. We had a great vacation. Thanks Bob and Cindy for sharing your lovely home with us.

Bob and Cindy were so easy to work with! We took 7 adults and 4 children, house was perfect! The kids enjoyed the pool and being able to fish and kayak at their leisure!!! This is a great place to vacation, house was well equipped!!

                                                                    Fantastic Home - Great Location - What more could you ask for?

                                                                    Matt & AmyElkhart, IN

The updates they've made turned a great home into a fantastic one! The size, the layout, and the features of this home make it a wonderful family vacation spot. We always rent bikes for the week so we can get around easily without using the car, and it is a short 5 minute bike ride to the phenomenal HHI beach. You really cannot go wrong renting this home! Thanks again, Bob & Cindy!
