Why Mike Bella chose South Forest Beach
We love South Forest Beach. The Tiki Hut is great for music and a beach view and Lagerheads (The Pool/Beach bar you walk by going to the beach, which is on the Marriot Property) makes blended smoothies (and cocktails) out of actual fruit rather than using those horrible syrups. This end of the island felt more like an 'island' (the other end feels more commercial to us), and the plantations take so long to get in and out of...this is so much more convenient to us!

Enjoyed our time in this clean family and pet friendly rental
The owner was extremely responsive to all questions and easy to work with. The unit was larger than we expected and the kitchen was well stocked. I packed a lot of kitchen supplies as we were making Thanksgiving dinner there, but I wouldn’t have needed to! The kitchen had everything we needed plus a lot of staples other rentals don’t have. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach, just a short drive away. We could’ve walked or biked but it was a bit chilly. The unit was clean on arrival and although it is older which the owner is clear about, it was a great place to spend the holiday and we would return. Thank you!
Close to many restaurants and the beach. Very close to the roundabout, which is very convenient. It was a nice and relaxing time.
We had a wonderful time. Easy walk to the beach. House was clean and great for kids and dogs.
We will re book for sure. Great weekend. Thank you!
My husband, our dog and I enjoyed condo. we'll be back to this place.
We were very disappointed with the property.
This villa is in need of paint and new carpet.. The carpet on the staircase is stained as is the carpet in the bedroom. The kitchen appliances were nice but the cabinets and drawers were in need of cleaning with crumbs and coffee stains were inside the drawers. We ate out for every meal.. The extra bedroom was too warm and we were unable to keep the temperature set at a comfortable setting. We arrived at night and had difficulty finding the villa for lack of lighting.. The lock is difficult to use which is was problem in the dark while using our phones for a flashlight. From the pictures and description we certainly expected way nicer..The villa is also very dark in the daytime.. The pool was decent though. I have been to HHI vacationing for 35 years and never written a negative review on anything..I feel bad writing this but the villa tarnished my vacation and also my friends that I invited..
Susan, we're so disappointed to hear that you did not care for our condo. We do try to be transparent regarding all elements of the condo by specifying in the description that: "It is NOT luxury accommodations. It is a well-loved (i.e. well-used) unit that can always use updates and maintenance. If you are seeking a pristine space, this is not a great fit." and including a list of repairs we would love to make to the space. We agree that the carpeting feels worn, especially next to the brand new LVT flooring on the main level.
That said, we do expect our cleaning service to leave you a CLEAN space and would have been more than happy to have them out to correct anything that was less-than-acceptable. I am also surprised to hear any issues with the lock as we've had 24 tenants in 2018 and have never had concerns. I also scanned my messages with you and did not see anything indicating a problem. If you could provide me with details, it would be tremendously helpful.
We hope the island did not disappoint during your visit and that you return to Hilton Head if not to our own property! Best Wishes.
Great location, many amenities & household extras!
We loved our stay at Hilton Head! The owner, Mike, was very responsive and easy to work with.
The house is extremely dog friendly, which was perfect for us. The condo grounds are beautiful, the super short walk to the pool was very nice.
The walk to the beach was beautiful & easy. It only took ten minutes and was on a very convenient bike trail.
The condo was set with many beach items and was well stocked with kitchen supplies.
We also utilized the pack n play for our 18 month old son.
There were plenty of linens and towels in the house and having a washer&dryer was very helpful too.
The only thing that brought us down a star, was that there are many things on their “last life”. Some trim coming off near bath tubs, some light bulbs out, some blinds broken...etc. (all superficial and not necessary for a great stay)
We would come and stay again in the future!
Tennis court 100 yards away. Coligny Circle takes about 15 minutes to walk to and the south entrance of Sea Pines is less than .5 miles away.
