About Rick Matarrese

My wife and I came to Hilton Head many times over the last 3 decades and always had a special fondness for this area. Sp. we are so thrilled to be starting this venture where we are able to share our dream beach condo with our guests. We have always loved travel and stayed at so many fine places over the years. But have also had the misfortune of staying at some that were disappointing at best. We understand the importance of vacation and just how easily that precious time can be spoiled by the frustration of accommodations that do not meet your expectations. That is something we don’t ever want our guests to feel. It is our goal to maintain our unit to a level that will provide 5 star ratings and that will not only assure that our guests are satisfied, but that they are thoroughly thrilled. We want guests that come back year after year. We hope you will become one of them.

Rick Matarrese purchased this condo in 2015

Why Rick Matarrese chose Island Areas

We take great pride in our unit 309 Ocean Dunes and provide an ambiance that is clean and fresh, but not so modern and cold that it looses the character charm and comfort of a Beach Home. When you are at the beach you want to feel like you are at the beach. We want our unit to convey a spirit of relaxation and fun, but still provide a level of impeccable neatness and cleanliness we desire when we stay there. Since we stay there often ourselves. We conduct frequent and regular personal inspections to assure that the unit is not just surface clean, but deep cleaned and that even the smallest imperfections or maintenance issues, that may have gone unnoticed, are corrected. There are a lot of vacation properties on Hilton Head. We want ours to stand out amongst them.

What makes this condo unique

"Location, Location, Location" is what they say in real estate and here at 309 Ocean dunes, that is what you get.! This ocean front resort is ideally situated far enough away from Coligny Circle so that you cannot see or even hear the hustle and bustle of the people and traffic, yet close enough to walk to it (or bike to it with one of bikes provided with the unit). You get the best of both at home with the excitement and action of endless dining and shopping just down the street. Free access to the health club supplements that with an indoor pool just a few blocks away. And if you like Tennis there is a tennis center just short stroll down the road. Being on the 3rd floor provides amazing ocean views that you simply cannot get at lower levels along with beautiful starry nights right off your ocean front balcony Individual air units and thermostats for each room assures that everyone can live in the comfort they desire. A fully updated kitchen means glide free drawers, modern stainless steel appliances and unblemished counter tops. A full size dining table provides space for everyone at dinner time. Hardwood living area floors provide a soft comfortable look of elegance while the tiled bathrooms assure clean and sterile bathing experience. A ceiling fan on the balcony supplements the natural ocean breeze to keep you cool and the cushioned furniture will keep you comfortable as you sip your Mint Juleps and watch the ocean waves.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. It was well appointed, had a great view of the ocean and most importantly it was CLEAN! I have stayed at a lot of VRBOS and this was one of the cleanest. You can tell that the owners take a lot of pride in their condo.

The bikes and the beach chairs were a big plus. The owners were very responsive to my questions. The next time we vacation on HHI we will stay here.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful condo.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hilton Head and we had a wonderful time. The condo is in a perfect location with a beautiful view and close proximity to biking trails, restaurants and shops. It was decorated nicely with a "beachy" feel. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony with our coffee in the morning and in the evenings after a busy day. Having the bikes was great to use along the shady paths. If you're looking for a place to stay we would highly recommend this condo!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. Having the bikes and beach chairs was a nice addition to an already beautiful condo. Plus there were boogie boatds/skim boards/spike ball/sand buckets in case we wanted to use those as well! Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo. The ammenities were appropriate and delightful! We had a great week!

Lovely condo, fantastic view and helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Hilton Head for years and renting various units for the family vacation. This was one of the very best!

The unit was decorated in a lovely beach theme, the bedrooms were neat and tidy and with good mattresses, the unit had all the needs for cooking meals, the 2 bikes that came with the rental we used all the time and best of all, one of the best views of the ocean from the balcony!

The owners were very helpful and responsive with my few questions we had before and as we arrived.

This location is close to lots of fun in and around Coligny Circle, and the beach is of course fantastic!

I'll definitely stay here again thanks to the location, the quality of the unit and the very helpful and attentive owners!

Great view, nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The condo is very well decorated and very nice. It really is in the perfect location, close to Coligny but far enough away to avoid the extra people and beach traffic. We had no maintenance issues or issues with the condo. The bikes were a nice plus as well.

Ocean Dunes Villas is the perfect blend of serenity and convenience. It is within walking distance of dozens of shops and restaurants at Coligny Circle as well as the VanDerMeer Tennis and Spinnaker Health and Fitness centers. Yet it is located on a small two lane road with little traffic and far enough off that road to provide complete quite. Bike paths provide an inviting environment of cyclists and strict restrictions on commercial lighting provide amazing starlit evenings. Next door is the Marriot Grand Ocean Resort where you can stop at the ocean front bar for a drink and across the street is a sports bar and restaurant at the Metropolitan Hotel. Everything (even golf) is within biking distance so you can leave your car in the parking lot.
