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!

Little hidden piece of heaven...

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 1 of 5

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

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this home on several occasions and look forward to returning in the future. This immaculate house is spacious and well appointed. We love the quite and private location with just a short walk to the beach. The pool, hot tub and deck are so inviting you almost don't want to leave. But, if you do, you are close to shopping and dining and all that Hilton Head Island has to offer.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Just what a vacation home should be. This house is tucked away off the street and from other homes making you feel like you are on your own little island. But with a short walk to the beach or drive to shopping and dining at Coligny you are close enough to everything you would want or need. The pool and hot tub are secluded and private so no concerns with neighbors and both were in great condition. The house was clean and well appointed with everything you'll need. Our time on vacation in this house was trouble free just as it should be.
