About the property

House,Pool (heated) 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

This classic family beach house will remind you of vacations with your family when you were a child. This house is the 4th house from the ocean and has a view of the ocean from the screened in porch. If you are looking for a fancy, huge, starter mansion; this isn't the place for you. But if you are looking for an adorable, cozy spot that encourages time with your family, this is the place. The addition of the pool heater makes this house appealing for all seasons.. The pool has a 'sun bench' where kids can play and adults can sun while sitting in 6 inches of water. The pool is 27 ft x 14 ft with 5 ft of water in the deep end.

This beach house comes equipped with UNO, Scrabble, Cards, and several other games that you will enjoy playing with your kids. The house is furnished with an eclectic collection of antiques and new items. Also, this spot is perfect for three or four couples.

There is a deck in the back with a teak table and chairs for alfresco dining. The screened porch which opens off of the master bedroom is ideal for a morning cup of coffee while listening to the waves. The street is lined with a canopy of oak trees and is in a very quiet section of North Forest Beach. Each bedroom has access to the outside deck.

There is a private outdoor shower with hot/cold water.

We have owned this home for 24 years and it holds a special place in our hearts. We feel certain you and your family will love it too!

About The Owner

We have loved this house since 1993. Our children enjoy their time here and love bringing their friends. Every morning they ride their bikes up to the French Bakery and buy Chocolate Croissants. The pool has been a great addition and we are looking forward to enjoying the new pool heater this winter. We now live in Asheville NC which is only 4.5 hours from the beach house.

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

What makes this house unique

There isn't another place on Hilton Head Island quite like North Forest Beach. It was the first neighborhood to be developed and has maintained a laid back, casual feeling. The beach is not crowded as there are no condominiums or hotels nearby.

You can put your car away and bike to the grocery at Coligny Plaza, less than a mile away. Our kids enjoy biking to the bakery every morning for a chocolate croissant . I love biking to the grocery and picking up fresh shrimp for dinner.

Our evening walks on the beach are a wonderful way to close out a perfect vacation day.

Everything about this beach house is outstanding! The location to the beach is literally a 30 second walk down a traffic free, shady side street. North Forest Beach is also a great location, it is a very quiet and laid back neighborhood away from resorts and public beaches. We were able to bike to most things, I think we got in the car only 3 times thru the week. The home is spacious and well maintained. The pool is a great addition when you need a break from the beach, it provides sun and shade. I would highly recommend this beach house, it will not disappoint!

We Loved the beach house.!!!!! As stated, it is Very close to the beach. We liked the North Forest Location. .Great neighborhood.. The house had all the little extras one could have ever needed.. grill, internet, stereo system, new tvs. And OH THE POOL.......Had so much fun, already thinking about next year. Rented bikes from Pedals. Must go to the SEA SHACK. great seafood, but be prepared to stand in line. It's worth the wait... We also had very yummy pizza from Dough Boy.. Oh I must not forget to mention the French Kiss Bakery at Coligny . Everything we tried was soooo sooo good ! Get there early for the best selection. .Hilton Head is a great place to visit...Hope to return ASAP...

Come for the beach, stay for the house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 weeks (Feb/March) and left dissatisfied... We would have liked another 8! Where do we start? A perfect beach house getaway tucked away on a quiet street with palmettos and live oaks dripping with Spanish moss. Most days found us on the nearby (100 ft or so) beach at some point enjoying the sea breeze and on the lookout for dolphins. The tastefully appointed house itself is all about quiet, comfort, and relaxation. There are many great features and its only been a few weeks but we particularly miss the fireplace and, especially, perfect bed. That said, we can take some comfort knowing we'll be back. We've already booked January, February, and March next year! Thanks Bonnie!

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful stay here. The location is ideal, being just steps from the beach, and in a very quiet neighborhood.

The house has everything you need with a spacious open floor plan and plenty of natural light. There are also some very nice updates to the bathrooms.

Everyone comments on the peaceful porch off of the master bedroom. This is the place to be when the kids are watching a movie at night, and you can kick back and enjoy your favorite beverage.

Not to be missed - the owner's very nice person who's responsive throughout and only wants to ensure you enjoy your vacation.

A beach house with the comforts of "home".

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four felt completely at home in this house. Everything we needed was provided and all we had to do was relax and enjoy ourselves. There was plenty of space for each of us to have "alone" time and also to come together as a family. Very comfortable and cozy and the beach is truly only a few steps away. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the screened porch and the option of an outdoor shower. Leaving the sand outside was great. We'll definitely stay here again and often!

Quiet and Shady Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful home with our 2 small children and we enjoyed every minute. The house is located on a very quiet street. It took us only a few minutes to walk to the beach and we had no problem hauling all the toys and gear that we needed in our wagon. There is ample shade on the street and we really enjoyed the sun room off the front of the house. There is a day bed and a view of the ocean and it was very relaxing. We plan to stay at this house for our next vacation too. There were a lot of beach accessories (buckets, chairs, umbrella) if anyone forgot to pack their own. The house was very clean. We parked the car when we arrived and did not get back in it until we left. It is a very quick bike ride to Coligny Plaza and some great restaurants. The owner was very nice and easy to deal with. There were a lot of games at the house for school age children and older.

This home is located 7/10 of a mile from Coligny Plaza which has a grocery store, ice cream shops, and lots of fun boutiques. You can ride your bikes down the convenient bike path or walk down the beach. You can literally put your car away during your stay!
