About Van

We purchased this villa in 1990 as "youngsters" so that we could eventually have a second home or primary residence on Hilton Head. Since this particular development has always been roughly half full-time residents and half second home / vacation rental, we chose to rent our unit long-term for the first 23+ years until the last resident, who had lived there 13 years, moved away. We changed our approach at that point and went with a complete renovation -- tearing down all non-structural walls, taking down all sheet-rock, etc. -- to fully modernize and move to short or mid-term rental to couples or pairs of golfers (or kayakers, or...) who want a "residential - like" villa. We still live many hours away but thoroughly enjoy the time we get to spend here. We hope you will, too.

Why Van chose South Forest Beach

Hilton Head Island was and is one of the most desirable locations to vacation or live in the world. The climate, which we describe as "southeastern beach", is particularly agreeable in the fall through spring and "best for hot-weather lovers" in the summer. This particular villa is located across the street from the beach and from the shopping and restaurants of Coligny Plaza, yet it's a quiet top-floor penthouse with a beautiful tree-top and lagoon view. It's a great fit for us. We hope it's also great for you.

What makes this villa unique

Hilton Head Island's 10+ miles of wide white-sand beach is among the best for walking or biking that we've experienced in our travels around the world. Sea kayaking on the open ocean or on the protected sound with the dolphins is a wonderful experience. Nearby Daufuskie Island and Savannah offer unique southern experiences that we thoroughly love.

Lovely villa in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is immaculate with tasteful, quality furnishings. It’s well-equipped and has a nice view of tree-tops and a pond. Everything works perfectly, and the complex is quiet, well-planned and maintained. Great location, a really short walk to the beach facilities, cafes and shops at Coligny.

"Couple's Retreat" lives up to its AMAZING rating and reviews, delivers Dream Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving to our "Couple's Retreat" we immediately felt at home, and knew we had made the right decision from the many offerings on the island. The space has been masterfully remodeled but not over done; very comfortable and not your typical wicker beach interior. The villa transports you to a modern beach retreat worthy of its title.

We were impressed with how well the space is used with 2 outdoor patios including one right off the master bedroom creating rich elegant retreat within the villa itself. In addition to being well kept, meticulously maintained; the space also had all of the amenities we could possibly want or need; including a swath of electronics (for a rainy day) that integrate seamlessly into the living area thanks to the instructions Van has put together. This truly is a couple's retreat and our new favorite spot on the island which is saying quite a lot for the vacation destination that HHI has become.

A final positive note on this stunning condo is its proximity to Coligny Plaza and beach access. When it comes to activities at Hilton Head this area of the island has it all, food, drinks, retail, beach front bars, everything you could possibly want from an island get away; without a lot of noise typical with other resorts.

I feel that this is the best property we have visited on the island; having stayed at many others through the years. Overall experience was beyond any of our expectations, highly recommend!!
