About the Owner

Russ and I live at the shore in New Jersey with our 4 boys and we all look forward to the summer when we can golf and go to the beach. We discovered Hilton Head 12 years ago when I surprised my husband with a birthday trip there. We had such a wonderful week that we bought a timeshare and started bringing family and friends every year. We love trying new places but kept finding that we wanted to go to Hilton Head at least once a year. We eventually bought this house on the ocean so that we could be close to golf and still be right at the beach for anyone who wasn't golfing and also for those to enjoy when they finish their rounds. Our boys now try to go down with friends at least once a year as well as all of us gathering for at least one family trip. It is the perfect house for large family gatherings because it has areas to escape and be on your own as well as the large open great room for everyone to be together. I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. ~Lindsay

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Beautiful house, something for everyone!"

Recently stayed at the Sandbar and had a great trip. The house was beautiful, as advertised, and in a great location. There was more than enough room for our group of 18 and the amenities significantly exceeded our expectations. Most of the girls stayed by the great pool and beach, while the men had a great time golfing. Lance (the caretaker of the home) was more than helpful and got the guys tee times at the private course, "The Golf Club,” where he is the pro. Definitely recommend! ~~ Casey

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home to accommodate the number of families that would be staying for our daughter's wedding. We were extremely pleased with the spaciousness of this beautiful home & the convenience of getting around to everything in the area. It was especially great for the walks on the beach. The pool & hot tub were large enough to accommodate our guest. Each of our families, 16 adults & 2 children had more than enough room & all of us stated how wonderful this home was and how much we enjoyed ourselves. Every bedroom with a bathroom is great for the 55+ crowd!! It was great to be able to have everyone be able to eat in the kitchen or dining room at the same time. Would definitely come back again!!

Had a wonderful time in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our First Family Reunion in this beautiful and very comfortable home. We were 13 adults with 4 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. Everyone appreciated having their own private bath and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked and large enough that we cooked an early Thanksgiving Dinner with four cooks! Having the two dishwashers made it even more convenient. Pool and hot tub area are beautiful. Elevator made it very easy for the seniors in the family!

Reality is even more beautiful than the pictures; the sunrises were gorgeous.

We're going to plan a Second Family Reunion and everyone wants to go back to The Sandbar.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad you mentioned that the "reality" of the house is better than the pictures on the site. So many guests have asked if our picture are updated, and if anything they are older than what is actually there now. These guests have rented other homes, expecting beautiful furnishings only to be disappointed by worn out furniture and a tired looking house. Each year we make sure to update our house to make sure it is fresh and to replace any furniture that is not up to our standards as well as restocking the entire kitchen. We look forward to your return visit next year~Russ and Lindsay

Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5
As we pulled up the brick paver drive, we knew this home was nestled at the end of a beautiful row of homes. I looked up at this magnificent home and was so excited to get settled in. Upon entering we were greeted with a beautiful view overlooking the pool onto the white sandy beach and glistening ocean. Our kids eyes were bright with excitement. The home was very clean. The bed linens were fresh with a clean scent, and the beds were plush. I am not use to such lavish bathrooms, and I loved every inch of ours. We had 7 Adults, 3 teenagers and 5 younger children with us. We had plenty of space for everyone. We could have easily had another family join us. If you needed your own time, there was always a place in the house you could find peace and quiet. We had a wonderful experience here, and hope to make it back again soon. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a one of a kind vacation. The kitchen was large enough for everyone to congregate, and having two refrigerators, etc.. it worked out great. The pool was just right and couldn't ask for more! So glad I found this little piece of heaven!

Our Favorite Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
It is not in my nature to write reviews but this house was so exceptional I decided to make an exception.. My family has been going down to Hilton Head for 12 years and only stay in the nicest oceanfront homes. This home topped them all and we will look no farther for our vacations to come. The furnishing were beautiful and everything was top of the line as advertised.
We cooked most of our dinners at the house and having such a large family were spoiled with the convenience of 2 dishwashers, 2 sinks and 2 ovens. The kitchen was so well stocked, there was nothing that we were lacking, even for our low country boil!
Our older children were thrilled to have their own domain on the 3rd floor with their own kitchen, bathrooms, games and large screen tv.
We couldn't have asked for a better location with the beach and pool right out the back door and coligny plaza just a bike ride away. The chat area was a favorite spot for the adults after the beach, sipping our cocktails, taking a dip in the pool while watching the kids swim.
Lance the caretaker,was only a phone call away and was so helpful with tee times and information about restaurants and island activities. We have already booked our stay for next year and can't wait to go back!

50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house with a beautiful view. We gathered here with all of our immediate families to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. This was the first time ever to have all of our families together. The house was perfect for us. We cooked (wonderful having two dishwashers), walked on the beach and just visited. The beach was just a few steps from the back door! Had a minor problem with the locks when we first checked in but that was soon corrected. It was wonderful that everyone could go and come at their own pace, since everyone had a private room with private bath. Great to have an elevator for my sister's husband who could not handle the stairs, and to haul the luggage and food up to the proper floor. I could have just sat in the window or on the balcony and looked at the view all day. Great place for a leisurely family gathering. It was beyond our expectations!

Fabulous Family Vacation for 17

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation at your amazing beach house. As the plaque in the bathroom says: This is ... "My favorite beach house.". Our children and their families loved it as much as we did. Lance was available for any concerns and most helpful. Everything, including the weather, was perfect. The pool is large enough for our family of accomplished swimmers as well as a six month old, a toddler, a four year old and two 3 year olds. The view from the master bedroom and the sitting area away from the crowd was enjoyed most by my husband and me. The large kitchen with plenty of ice and two dishwashers was great in feeding so many. The beautiful table and large counter were both put to good use as well. We could not ask for a better place to enjoy the beach! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
