              Enjoying a Lovely Evening & a Beautiful View on Hilton Head Island 01/21/2009

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              Upon arrival at this luxury, beachfront home, I had no idea what was in store for me. The bright, airy ambiance lifted my spirits “beary” high and I couldn't keep my eyes off the sweeping ocean views from nearly every room in the house. In this day and age, many seek a place where they can find comfort & serenity, somewhere they can escape from it all and most importantly, somewhere to spend quality time with friends and family. While staying in this beautiful house, I was able to find all of this and more.

              Three of the six lovely bedrooms had private verandas where you could sit and watch the dolphins at play or take in a sunset or two. The two-story, open living area was an enjoyable place to interact, relax and enjoy the large dining area which seated up to 10. The main floor master suite had French doors, which opened to the deck, pool and never-ending ocean views. The jetted tub in the bath had shutters, which opened into the bedroom, allowing you to enjoy the views while taking a relaxing bubble bath.

              If you enjoy a good, home cooked meal, I found the kitchen very well- equipped with appliances. Plus, there was a lovely, wood patio table in the back, with plenty of additional seating on the large deck to enjoy a juicy steak or seafood on the grill… my favorite! During a hot summer day, the kids can play in the private, heated pool, while the adults lounge in one of several Adirondack chairs. The owner even provides several beach toys and towels for use during your stay.

              Rain or shine, the Yellowdog ByThe Sea home had a variety of nearby activities for the young and the young-at-heart to choose from. A walk down to the seashore to dip my "bear" feet in the water turned into a quest to find sand dollars peeking though the surface. Friendly, local people showed me the easiest way to find these beautiful treasures. A five minute walk north along the coast brought me to a small village atmosphere, boasting several fine and casual restaurants, gift and ice cream shops, and even a theater! A stroller for the little ones was available to make the beach walking a little easier and there were flashlights for adventurers who preferred to beach comb by moonlight.

              Oh, how I wished to linger and relax for just a few more days. To stretch out by the pool, enjoying a glass of sweet tea and savoring every moment of my vacation experience in the south!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: Privately owned by Andre and Joann Cilliers. Andre has lived on Hilton Head since 1995.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Living on Hilton Head since 1995 I had a chance to very closely consider which oceanfront community to invest. When Yellowdog #1, a gorgeous North Forest Beach, 3rd row, 5 bedroom 4.5 bathroom home, renovated in 1998 thru 1999 sold, I was in a position to finally buy an oceanfront property. I chose a 3 bed 2 bath beach cottage at 27 Dune Lane as the location for 'Yellowdog by the Sea', i.e., Yellowdog #2. The cottage was rebuilt in 2001 and emerged as a gorgeous 6 bed 6 bath dream oceanfront home. The house was updated and revived in 2012 with a new roof, new siding, a new deck, a new hot tub, a gorgeous new outdoor grill, refinished hardwood floors and completely repainted. Dune Lane, in North Forest Beach is one of the best oceanfront streets on Hilton Head Island and the homes between Dove Street and Heron Street are particularly sought after because of the close proximity to Coligny Plaza. Most of the homes are set up high, offering wonderful wide ocean views and the homes are 50 feet or less from the white sandy beach, that I love so much.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The best view of the beach, offered by any oceanfront home on Hilton Head Island. Not our words, just check with our past guests, many of whom have stayed at a number of oceanfront homes, up and down the beach. The wide, unobstructed view is there, from the moment you walk through the front door and from almost every room in the house. Double glass French doors open onto private oceanfront decks from 3 of the 4 King suites. Blond hardwood floors throughout the 1st floor, the stairs and the upstairs open hallway complimented by white slipcovered oversized sofas, arm chairs and chaise lounges, creating an enviornment of casual elegance. Azure blue oceanfront heated pool set in enormous sunning deck. Garden with large grassed area, perfect for playing ball, horse shoes, kite flying and night time star gazing, while lying on your back. Walking distance to Coligny Plaza, where you can find anything that you may need for your vacation, plus much more. Private wooden walkway leading from private garden to beach.
