                                  This home is in one of the most sought after locations on Hilton Head, North Forest Beach. Why? One of the reasons is there is no public parking access to it so only the residents can walk there. But, by beach or bike path you are only a 5 minute bike ride from famous 'Coligny' and all the unique shops, restaurants, public beach, grocery stores, and watering holes. The island has lots of Outlet malls, Restaurants, Marina's, with Tennis and Golf facilities which are just around the corner from this centrally located home. But the best part is, you are in a quiet forest area and only 6 houses from the beach, and includes a wagon. ( other renters sometimes leave some beach things behind.) Take bikes for a ride down the bike paths to town for exploring or shopping.There is secured Wi-Fi, parking for 4 cars and a fully supplied kitchen & laundry. Enjoy our free newspaper delivery every day to search new ideas and events with your coffee in the morning.

                                  Other Activities: Climb the lighthouse in Harbortown, visit old tabby ruins, take your kids crabbing or a dolphin cruise, even a horseback ride on the island. You will not run out of restaurants to try on this island. 'Hinoki's' sushi to 'The Sea Shack', and anywhere in between including the roof top of 'Santa Fe' is all game here. Visit Savannah, Beaufort & Daufuskie Island. All close and all different. Then go shopping in Bluffton and their farmers market for fresh food and eclectic works of art. Hilton Head also now has a farmers market located at the 'Shelter Cove town park' property which is a great family excursion. (See our link page on our website for info on days and times) Buy fresh seafood and have a low country boil in our back yard and finish that off with somemores by the fire.

                                  Golf: There are more than 8 public golf courses within the 8 mile radius of this home. Shipyard Golf Club~843-689-4653. Sea Pines: Harbour Town Golf Links~ 843-842-8484, Ocean Course~ 843-842-8484, Heron Point~ 843-842-8484.

                                  Palmetto Dunes: Arthur Hills, George Fazio Course, Robert Trent Jones Course~ 843-785-1138. Indigo Run: Golden Bear Golf Club~ 843-689-2200 PLUS 9 public courses off island.

                                  Year Purchased: 2007

                                  About the owner: A Michigander that flew south after deciding shoveling snow is for the birds! But fun to play in...

                                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                                  North Forest Beach is still one of the best and most sought after communities even for rentals because it it not a commercial area. It is a quiet forested area with dead-end streets right next to the ocean, but has quick access to town if you are heading out for fun. Expect deer, racoons, Great horned owls and Lunar moths as part of your forest/beach experience.
