From a spectacular pool (largest private pool in North Forest Beach) with room to swim laps, to good reading light in the bedrooms, to every imaginable utensil in the kitchen, the owners have thought of everything.
The decor is fabulous - the art, rugs, furnishings, and decorating combine to create an atmosphere that is special from the moment you walk in. The owners have used their experience as bed and breakfast owners and long time Hilton Head renters and owners to make this home perfect for any vacation.

ReviewsWrite a review
We were very impressed with Monkey Business! The home is beautifully decorated and accomated 3 families very well. The pool was very large and it made swimming one of our favorite things to do while in Hilton Head. It is a very short walk to the beach and so convenient to Coligny Square. You could bike or walk very quickly and safely. We definitely want to come back to HH and stay at Monkey Business again!

Our repeat stay at Monkey Business and we loved it -- AGAIN!
Our repeat stay at Monkey Business and we loved it -- AGAIN!
This was our 2nd stay at Monkey business and we had an even better time than before (if that is even possible!) We had new friends staying with us this year and they were equally as excited because of all we had told them about your beautiful home! The rooms were spectacular, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the location is absolutely perfect! I think we used our cars only a handful of time to play golf, go para-sailing, and to go out to eat in Sea Pines. Other than that, we either rode our bikes or walked to everything! Your home is amazing and all 11 of us had a wonderful time! We have seen other houses that are rentals in HHI, but yours is FAR superior in all aspects- location, price, amenities on site, the pool, and all the extras! The pool and hot tub are 2nd to NONE and is easily the envy of others who are renting. The privacy is just perfect for the families and we love that the sun is over the pool for the entire day! We counted our steps from the driveway to the beach -- 102 steps. I think it takes less than 5 minutes!! The house is so close to Coligny that anytime we needed anything at the store, we just asked one of the kids and they hopped on their bike and rode off to the Piggly Wiggle, Carolina Cupcakes, or the bakery. We definitely did not want to leave and we will definitely be back again! Thank you Bill and Jackie for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home once again!

Wonderful vacation at Monkey Business
Wonderful vacation at Monkey Business
We just spent a relaxing vacation at 'Monkey Business'! The property is just as described. The furniture and bedding are comfortable and well cared for and the kitchen has every appliance and gadget that you could want. The location is perfect, a short walk to the beach and also Coligny. We could easily have stayed here without a car except for golf. We had a couple of small problems when we arrived and the owner was quick to respond and resolve the issues. We have rented through rental agencies on previous trips and have had problems that were either ignored or not taken care of promptly. The owner truly cares not only for his home but wants his renters to have a great vacation! I would highly recommend this home!

This House has Everything, including great owners!

Our 5th stay on Hilton Head Island and our first in a home as we usually rent condos. After careful research, our 3 family group of 12 chose “Monkey Business” primarily for its location near the beach and Coligny but also for the pool, well stocked kitchen and room arrangement. This well decorated gem of a home far exceeded our expectations. It lacks nothing. The kitchen was so well stocked we ate in most of the time. Beds were comfortable and the porch with the windows open and breeze coming in was a lovely place to enjoy the morning coffee. We are an active bunch and our teens were never bored with the outstanding pool with the diving board, basketball hoop and volleyball net. When they had enough water, the kids jumped on the bikes to explore the island. At the end of the week, no one wanted to leave. Ever.

Accommodations were as described. Plenty of room for 11 older gentlemen. Centrally located and easy access to golf. Since we did most of our own cooking , there were plenty of dishes,utensils etc. Would definately consider this home if we choose Hilton Head as next years destination. Very good communication with owner.

Great House, Great Pool, Great Location!
Great House, Great Pool, Great Location!
"Monkey Business" met all of the needs for our family group of 14. The house had all the amenities that we needed, plenty of bathrooms, a wide assortment of kitchen utensils and appliances, ample parking and extremely close to the beach! Everyone loved the pool, and there was barely a minute that at least one person wasn't in it. The pool is especially great for swimming laps and the teens loved having contests that involved the diving board and dunking the basketball. The beach was so close that is was easy to go back and forth many times throughout the day. We rented some bikes, and there were a few in the garage that enabled many in our group to take bike rides together along the trail right outside of the house. The downstairs kitchen had an extra fridge that was great for keeping the beverages cold and was a great airconditioned extra space. The upstairs porch has a great table for playing cards which was one of our nightly activities. The bunkbed room worked out great as we were able to put all of the cousins in that one room, and all of the bedrooms had ample space and very comfortable beds. During the week, the pool was cleaned twice and the handyman came around a few times to check on things. This house had everything that we needed and more! Thank you Bill and Jackie!

Having rented multiple large rental homes in Hilton Head, we can say that Monkey Business is our favorite. The owners certainly understand the concept of exceptional customer service. The house is loaded with everything one could want in a rental home and the location can't be beat – walk to the beach and Coligny Plaza. If there is a better pool in Forest Beach, we'd sure like to see it - our kids were in it from sun up to sun down (the pictures do not do it justice). We have thoroughly investigated rental homes in Hilton Head for years and can say without hesitation - book this home and you will not be disappointed. We can’t wait to return!

Our three generation family of 16 had a wonderful time staying in this warm and welcoming home. "Monkey Business" is in an ideal location-just a very easy,short walk to the beautiful beach and to Coligny Circle with it's many shops,restaurants and grocery. The adults really enjojed using the 2 kayaks provided and there were plenty of beach toys for the little ones. To quote the grandkids"the house and pool were awesome !!!". The pool is really large and has a nice shallow end for young children and diving board in the deep end , This pool is truely the nicest and largest pool we saw in our walks around the lovely streets in this area. Bill and Jackie Groth have a great home to vacation in-the decor is really fun. We certainly hope to return and would highly recommend"Monkey Business" to our family and friends as well as any visitors to this web site that are planning a trip to Hilton Head. Thanks again for sharing this great home.

Just returned from a week at "Monkey Business". We were a party of 15 for a few days and 10 for the remainder of the week. There was ample room for everyone. My family had so much fun by the pool and beach that my 14 year old son mentioned to me on Thursday on our way out to dinner that this was the first time he had been a mile from the house! We've been to Hilton Head Island before several times but this time we had so much fun at home we didn't have to go out and look for it. Thank you Bill and Jackie for sharing your home! Marie

Our family has vacationed on HHI for many years now. "Monkey Business" is by far the best experience we have had. The house is roomy and the"monkey theme" fit our family to a tee! We enjoyed the pool,hot tub, and bikes. A stay in "Monkey Business" is truly a vacation!! We hope to visit again next summer!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Our family has been vacationing in the North Forest Beach area for over 30 years. Our four children "grew up" vacationing during the summer here and now join us at Thanksgiving and Christmas for family gatherings. Bill is an attorney and manages his own investment advisory firm. Jackie is a high school English teacher planning to retire in June, 2012. We have operated The Rossville Inn, a bed and breakfast in Hamiton, Ohio for the past 14 years in our pre-civil war home. We enjoy entertaining and cooking and are avid readers and bridge players. Jackie loves remodeling and decorating projects and it shows. She is an avid gardener.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Jackie has always wanted a pool that she could "swim laps in." We had noticed the pool at 19 Dove two years before the house was on the market. We saw the sign, looked at the house, Jackie imagined the possibilities, we made an offer and bought the house. We then set out to make over the house to our standards and create a very comfortable environment for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the convenience to what we think is the nicest beach area on the island. We walk every morning and evening and have met many great people on these walks. It helps that Turbo, our standard poodle is a real stand out on the beach. The Piggiy Wiggily Market at Coligny Plaza is so close and the service and selection are very good. We make daily trips to the seafood counter to take advantage of the deliveries of fresh local caught fish and shrimp. We enjoy cooking, grilling and smoking in the Big Steel Keg we bought in 2010, but we do find it hard to resist going out for dinner at the many local, chef-owned restuarants like Charlie's and The Sunset Grill. Jackie goes spinning at BreakThrough Fitness several times per week in addition to lap swimming. Family time is spent in the pool cheering on each sibling and grandchild as they try to out do one another on the diving board.
