About the property

Near Ocean Beach Home-Short walk to the Beach!

We lovingly refer to our home by the beach as "The Island House". The exterior is a classic Hilton Head Beach Design and rather unassuming~the interior is upscale, comfortable & inviting with a soothing color palette of sea glass blues & greens.

One of the things that we love most about our home is the location. You will feel as if you're on your own private island due to the location & placement of the home on over an acre of land. Only a 4-5 minute walk to the beach! You will feel as if you're a million miles away, yet you are within minutes from the Coligny Plaza Shopping Area & all of the amenities of Forest Beach, which include unique local stores, coffee shops, clubs, restaurants, miniature golf, bicycle & walking trails, & more.Our home is also located close to the back entrance of Sea Pines Plantation-home of world famous Harbour Town.

Some details about our home... Master Suite with King Size Bed & private bathroom with double sinks, garden shower, & soaking tub. The three additional guest bedrooms all have flat screen TV's & private bathrooms. Two of the guest rooms have Queen Size Beds-the third guest room has a King Sized Bed. Family room with large screen tv. The Sun Room also has a dining area to enjoy meals while enjoying the view of swimming pool which is surrounded by a hedge of jasmine. Our kitchen is efficient and allows for casual seating at the counter while enjoying morning coffee or meals. There is also a tv in the kitchen. Wet Bar is located off of the kitchen. The Dining Room seats eight if you would like a more formal dining experience.

Our home was recently renovated with the addition of skylights in the kitchen, foyer, & family room, large windows throughout to enjoy the lush tropical island views. Short walk to the beach on beach path (4-5 minute walk)!

The swimming pool is located within a private courtyard lined with a privacy hedge of jasmine & live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss.

You will experience "Island Life" while staying at our home!

Concierge Services Offered for an additional fee.

My family and I had a wonderful experience with this rental. Tucked away from the busy roads, it was peaceful and so close to the beach, only a short walk! It was also great to be so close to Sea Pines as Harbor Town is one of our favorite places to spend time on the Island.

The home has set our vacation bar very high. Not only is it beautiful it's also very clean with comfy beds, sheets and towels. The pool and back deck are huge and were perfect for both the kids and adults.

This vacation property is hard to beat! I highly recommend this home

as it truly was an oasis. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic vacation! We can’t wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

We visit Hilton Head once or twice a year and this was our favorite trip! The home felt like our own little oasis. It was clean and beautifully decorated. An easy walk to the beach and about a mile down from the lively Tiki Hut if you're looking for more of a party.

We really enjoyed being able to look out on the pool and deck area as it was the perfect place to relax with our family without having to go anywhere.

It's also right near Sea Pine's back gate which was an extra plus as we love Harbor Town and the Salty Dog.

We will definitely be going back!

The "Island House" is a hidden treasure in South Forest Beach! The house is set back on a large piece of land down a long driveway. The exterior is modest-however the interior is beautiful! The layout of the home great, all on one floor with separate "wings" for privacy. A courtyard like feel.

The furnishings are lovely & comfortable. I've never slept on more comfortable mattresses.

The home was immaculate...pathway to the beach private & natural.

Loved every minute of our vacation.

Little hidden piece of heaven...

More wash clothes and let the renters know that the master shower is outside. Great location for the beach and beautiful home. Had a wonderful week and enjoyed your home on Hilton Head Island!

overall didn't feel it was a good value for the cost and better alternatives on the island

The longer we stayed the more disappointed we became. The photos are not an accurate representation of the home. The master bath does not have a shower only the outside shower. This made for some challenges including frogs jumping on my toddlers and bugs crawling on us while showering. The remaining baths are very outdated and very tiny. The water tank does not allow for ample hot water to support 8 people. The pool appears to be very large in the photos but it is actually about half the size. The deck is old with splinters sticking out. The hot tub does not work. A couple of the chairs outside are rusted and worn and appeared broken. We didn't sit in them as they didn't appear safe. The dishwasher cart falls out every time you pull it out. The washer where you pour the soap is also broken and falls out upon use. The carpet in the bedroom is dirty. One wing of the house has painted concrete floors. The 4.13 min walk to the beach with toddlers is less than desirable and a good 10 min walk. We were anxious to take our 3.5 year old girls to the beach and walked down shortly after arrival hoping it would help the disappointment we felt inside the house. We were eaten alive by bugs. The walkway has many tree branches and underground stumps that protrude up in random areas causing safety issues. If you are accustomed to being off the beach it may not seem as bad but the bugs are really horrible and after a long day at the beach covered in sand it was much worse. We sprayed down with OFF each trip. You also have to cross Forrest Beach Road to get to the second leg of the path. "Cockroaches" aka Palmetto bugs in the south are sometimes hard to avoid. I get hat. However, we had to rid of multiple roaches in the house that crawled on the kitchen counters and also on the bedding my nephew was sleeping on. We cleaned up new dead roaches every morning as well as the dodging of little tree frogs in the shower. The backyard is very overgrown much like the path to the beach. There was nothing in the house that made you feel like you were checking into a vacation destination i.e. Reference guides to local activities, rentals or restaurants." The back door leading to the pool is also needing repair. Just a tired property in general. Colleen was very sweet when we spoke several times and don't want to offend her but thought it was important that we provide feedback.

*2 refridgerators and plenty of dishes was a plus

Owner's Response: This review is what is not an accurate representation of the "Island House"! We take great pride in making certain that our guests are happy-which is very important to us. The photos were professionally taken and our home looks EXACTLY like the photos, no surprises here. What is special about the home is that is situated on one and a half acres of land on a gorgeous, natural,tropical looking setting. This offers tons of privacy and the feeling of being far & away on an island-yet only minutes from the beach and all of the amenities of Forest Beach & Sea Pines Resort. All of our other reviews have been excellent, other than this review which I find puzzling. Please be sure to read the other reviews as this review is not in keeping with the other reviews.
