Beach Bum Property

About Us

Jim Brown, Broker-in-Charge and his wife, Margot, began vacationing in Hilton Head Island in 1994. After purchasing a rental home in 1996 they found that management from the larger rental companies felt impersonal. After moving permanently to the island in 2004, they began a small short term rental business with a strong focus on customer service. They personally greet every renter and are on call 24 hours a day to meet the needs of every guest. Margot and Jim have been married for over 30 years and have three daughters.

"Great place, lots to do"

“Great place, lots to do, close to everything... would definitley suggest that you visit the area if you get the chance. Very convenient to beaches, golf and all the fun things to do on the island. Our friends recommended BeachBum, and all we can say is thanks! We were suprised to see that many of the BeachBum rentals include amenities like golf, tennis, and even beach chairs. This makes hauling the family to the beach soooooo much easier! Bless you!” — Charles and Lynn Shearer, Greenwood, SC
