                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      About the owner: In the early 70's, my wife and I discovered Hilton Head Island and it was love at first sight. We sold our lake cabin, purchased this lot and began making plans to build a beach house. As a general contractor, I always dreamed of building a vacation retreat. We cherish time spent at 19 Bittern with our children and grandchildren.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We built this home in 1980 as a family vacation retreat. We have offered our home for rental because we want to share this fantastic location with great families like yours. As with all real estate, it's about location, location, location. We've got that covered! North Forest Beach is a calm unpretentious beach community. The quiet beach and close proximity to Coligny Plaza are just a few reasons we chose this area. We have made so many wonderful memories at this house, I hope you get the chance to experience the same with your family as well.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      19 Bittern offers a spacious great room with ample outdoor living space as well. This property's proximity to the quiet beach and Coligny Plaza are it greatest assets.
