The Team

Teamwork makes the dream work!

It started with a dream and vision that things could be done better in this industry where homeowners rent their vacation homes to guests. Our dream included making the entire guest experience better, if not the best. So, after devoting over 20 combined years to one of the leading vacation rental companies on the island, we took a leap and started our own boutique vacation rental business. We focus on the owner and the guest, implementing the tools to be successful. Our team has proven that the new way of doing things is better for everyone involved and so rewarding!


Mark Kombrink


After careers in real estate and finance, serving thousands of clients, Mark has developed excellent communication skills and a reputation for dependability.  Though his degree is in Finance, Mark is truly a Jack-of-all-trades kind of guy with a wide variety of knowledge and skills.


As a maverick in the vacation rental industry, Mark keeps his finger on the pulse of what the industry is looking for, whether guests or owners, and his company is agile enough to make the necessary changes within the industry to implement ongoing marketing strategies for his owners while providing unmatched service and experiences for his guests.


Besides marketing and managing properties, Mark serves owners as their on-site property manager, overseeing maintenance and projects. Mark takes pride in making sure all his owners and guests are happy through his hard work, dedication, and attention to detail.


When not tending to business, Mark spends as much quality time with his family as possible. Mark and his three sons consider themselves adventurers and continually seek journeys off the beaten path, preferably outdoors in our amazing Lowcountry.

Jackson Kombrink


We are thrilled to introduce Jackson as our latest Property Manager! Originally from Illinois, Jackson has called Bluffton, SC, home for the past 14 years, watching the island grow and flourish alongside him and his two brothers. At the young age of 13, Jackson founded his own landscaping company, working primarily on the island for four years. Later, he decided to explore the hospitality world, working at the renowned Montage Palmetto Bluff, where he discovered his passion for the industry. He stayed at Palmetto Bluff for another four years before moving to  Salt Lake City to work at a Marriott Hotel. After a year out west, he realized that there's no place like home, especially in the beautiful Lowcountry, and moved back. Jackson has a knack for anticipating guest/owner needs and genuinely cares for excellent service, which makes him a perfect fit for our team. We are excited to welcome Jackson and look forward to seeing him thrive alongside our incredible team of individuals who share the same passion for their work.


When Jackson has free time, he likes to do things that help him relax and unwind. This might mean playing a round of golf, checking out a new place, or taking a peaceful stroll along the beach. Plus, he enjoys spending quality time with his grandparents, who are lucky to live nearby.
