|Minimum Stay||7 - 30 nights|
Property was in a makeover with new pictures just posted!!.... Only 500 ft. from the best beach on Hilton Head Island and only a 5 minute bike ride to town. This tropical 3 bedroom 2 bath private home with lots of room to spread out is at the end of a cul-de-sac in a prime location to everything. This home boasts an open Carolina Room to a large backyard that is not fenced because of the deer passing thru with a patio that has a fireplace and pond-less waterfall. The living room has 1 pull out queen, surround sound system, TV's in almost every room, wireless secured WiFi. Parking for 4 cars, a full kitchen and laundry room and a hot water outside shower for you after you come back from the beach! (Wagon included!) How about 'Free' long distance phone calls within the continental U.S. .You will even have the local newspaper delivered to your door every morning so you can relax with a cup of coffee before you start your day!
A Michigander that flew south after deciding shoveling snow is for the birds!......... But fun to play in...
Clotilde Book purchased this house in 2007
North Forest Beach is still one of the best and most sought after communities even for rentals because it it not a commercial area. It is a quiet forested area with dead-end streets right next to the ocean, but has quick access to town if you are heading out for fun. Expect deer, racoons, possums, Great horned owls and Lunar moths as part of your forest/beach experience.
Being in a quiet cul-de-sac and no stairs this house is geared toward the 45+ crowd and the infirm. There are very few pet friendly homes by the beach that are on the ground level. Don't miss this one!
Nicely lay out of ranch style living. Plenty of space to roam around. Rooms are nice sizes. TV's in every room even the sun porch! Laundry room is nice and big. You have all the amities of home and more. Very clean and well kept. Owner was always reachable and provided excellent service whenever we needed it. Plenty of windows for cross ventilation and beautiful breezes. Outside backyard is like a forest adventure. Plenty of trees and beautiful birds singing their songs. A well placed hammock that in fact did see a lot of use! Easy walk to beach and great paths for biking. A little secret every morning around 7:30 am to about 9:00 am if you head down to the Crown Plaza Access (left on beach about a 10 minute walk) you will be greeted by an “Unofficial Dog Play Beach Time”. Out little “Noah” loved this part and boy did he have a blast… meeting about 20/30 dogs a day. If you do go with or w/o dog you will be happy you did! Say hello to “Jake” (white golden retriever) he is the “Mayor” of the dog park! Tell him “Noah” from NJ says “Woof”! A great place. We will be back!!!
We had a wonderful vacation at this home! Yes, things were a bit dated, but everything worked well, except a brief issue with the air conditioner, which was immediately addressed. The interior was quite clean , and very well equipped. Reading thru the house guide is a must and very helpful. Very close to the beach, maybe 200 yards, outside shower was great for the dogs, and hose was great for cleaning beach stuff. We used the wagon quite a bit, as well as the grill. The location is very woodsy, so there were a number of mosquitos at first. We sprayed some yard guard type stuff, (pet/child safe)though, and it was fine after that. Plenty of equipment, two bikes in good repair- boogie boards kind of busted, may be good ideas to toss them, but they are cheap. Clotilde was very much on the ball and very nice - all in all, would definitely return!
TRAVELERS BEWARE! I’ve used VRBO 10 + years, rented in Hilton Head lots of times—this was our first bomb. The house wasn’t well-cleaned before we arrived. 1st day we noticed ants/earwigs & owner sent her landscaper over—he sprayed most of the kitchen floor with industrial liquid Raid. It caused an immediate allergic reaction/breathing problems for my children. His solution—turn on fans. We were left to clean the poison up ourselves. Note that this home is “geared toward the 45+ crowd and the infirm.” Glass dining tables in the living/dining areas are a hazard. The “new” photographs seem to have been taken years ago—the metal frame around the mirror in the master bath has rusted & the fake greenery surrounding the light fixture is covered in filth. Towels for bathing are dingy, smelly & threadbare, with the exception of the decorative ones in the picture of the twin room. The “new” beds with memory foam mattresses had lost their memories and were uniquely uncomfortable. The tiny, “newly remodeled kitchen” had circa 1970’s cabinets, flooring & lighting. The “old fashion array” of kitchen equipment included a slew of beat-up and stained, garage sale cooking pans, but no cookie sheet. The house states that it is non-smoking with smoking porches outside, but ashtrays abound & the stale smell of smoke is prevalent. The “Carolina Room” is an enclosed porch that is hot/stuffy during the day, with furniture that smells mildewed and leaves you itchy. The “hot water outside shower” is uncomfortably hot (as in, makes children cry) and not adjustable. It’s surrounded by 4 large, smelly trash cans & a rusted beach cart with decaying toys. Not a place anyone would want to shower. The bikes that came with the house were corroded with rotten handle grips & a flat tire on one. The well-used beach wagon is necessary as you will need to walk down your street, out of the neighborhood, across N. Forest Beach (major road), past 6 beautiful homes, and through the dunes until you reach the lovely beach. When signing your contract, be sure to list the max number of occupants & cars (8 people & 4 cars). Although you may request to add additional people (if you want to invite friends or relatives to join you), it’s at the owner’s discretion if you will be approved after you have signed. Good luck with that. The owner lives directly across the street and keeps an unusually close eye on her source of income. More people=more income—you will likely be charged. Keep looking!
This was our first vacation renting a house instead of a condo and if the chance arises, we would certainly choose this property again. The location was great for us-close enough to walk or bike to Coligny, yet far enough to provide peace and privacy. The neighborhood was so peaceful, but when we did see a neighbor they were very friendly. It was so so nice to have the beach wagon and bikes included and ready to go so we didn't have to find a place to rent them-and there were beach toys galore had we wanted to use them. The home was just that-A HOME! So very comfortable and well kept. The back yard was accurately described as being an oasis, but being the middle of August it was just too hot for us to hang out there very much. We loved seeing a lizard (or salamander), a possum and a couple of raccoons on occasion at night. We appreciated having the well equipped kitchen and laundry room. It was nice knowing I didn't have to remember to pack these items. And of course we were so pleased to find a pet friendly place this close to the beach. Thanks also to Clotilde for being so quick to answer all of our emails leading up to our stay. We had a terrific vacation and staying at 18 Sandpiper was a big part of what made it so great. I hope we get the opportunity to stay here again and I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend-or anyone.
My family had a wonderful week at 18 Sandpiper! It is close enough to the beach to walk in a few minutes. After some fun on the beach it was nice to have a warm outside shower to rinse off. The home was clean and comfortable with lots of gathering space. There were a few problems in the kitchen but didn't keep us from enjoying our stay. I got an email the day of our arrival that the ice maker was broken but would be fixed mid week. It was never fixed. I would certainly stay here again.
We had a wonderful week at this property. My booking was very last minute. The property mgr was wonderful to work with. The house is in a great location, very easy walk to wonderful beach, convenient to Coligny Plaza, and very central to all of HHI. The house was very comfortable, the yard was very private, and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The Carolina Room was a great place to hangout, relax, and read. Very pet friendly. I hope to stay here again in 2015.
This home is in one of the most sought after locations on Hilton Head, 'North Forest Beach'. Why? One of the reasons is there is no public parking access to it so only the residents can walk there. But, by beach or bike path you are only a 5 minute bike ride from famous 'Coligny' and all the unique shops, restaurants, public beach, grocery stores, and watering holes. The island has lots of Outlet malls, Restaurants, Marina's, with Tennis and Golf facilities which are just around the corner from this centrally located home. But the best part is, you are in a quiet forest area and only 6 houses from the beach, and includes a wagon. ( other renters sometimes leave some beach things behind.) Take bikes for a ride down the bike paths to town for exploring or shopping.There is secured Wi-Fi, parking for 4 cars and a fully supplied kitchen & laundry. Enjoy our free newspaper delivery every day to search new ideas and events with your coffee in the morning.
Other Activities: Climb the lighthouse in Harbortown, visit old tabby ruins, take your kids crabbing or a dolphin cruise, even a horseback ride on the island. You will not run out of restaurants to try on this island. 'Hinoki's' sushi to 'The Sea Shack', and anywhere in between including the roof top of 'Santa Fe' is all game here. Visit Savannah, Beaufort & Daufuskie Island. All close and all different. Then go shopping in Bluffton and their farmers market for fresh food and eclectic works of art. Hilton Head also now has a farmers market located at the 'Shelter Cove town park' property which is a great family excursion. (See our link page on our website for info on days and times) Buy fresh seafood and have a low country boil in our back yard and finish that off with somemores by the fire.
