This convenient, family and dog-friendly two bedroom condo was recently updated with new bedding, new furniture and a flat screen TV in the living area & master bedroom. It is located in the popular South Forest Beach area of Hilton Head, just minutes from Coligny Plaza shops, restaurants and beaches. Come relax and stay in a light, bright villa with lots of extras provided for your convenience. There are no stairs in or leading to the unit and parking is just outside the front door, making it a great choice for families or retirees. Keep up with work if needed or check e-mail with the high-speed wireless internet connection. You are just minutes from the beach, steps from Hilton Head’s great bike paths and Van Der Meer Tennis Center and a short drive to terrific shopping and dining.

Because the villa is also our vacation home, we’ve paid special attention to detail and equipped it with many family-friendly items to make your vacation easier as well. We treat it as a place to get away, not just a rental property. We’ve provided a beach cart, beach umbrella, beach toys and a couple of chairs so you don’t have to bring them. For those traveling with kids there’s a Pack N Play, a booster seat with tray, one set of bed rails, a step-stool in the bathroom, night lights, kid cups, plates and utensils.

The entry way features a great storage/organizational unit for your shoes, sports equipment, beach towels, jackets, etc. The family room has an upgraded queen sleeper sofa and large coffee table perfect for playing board games. Unwind after an active day on the island by having a movie night or listen to some of your favorite CD’s with the DVD/CD player. If there’s a rainy day, we have 100 cable channels, games, books, puzzles, DVD’s and a wireless internet connection. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a microwave, coffee maker with automatic timer, a spacious pantry and a full-size washer and dryer.

The master bedroom has a king bed, two spacious closets and a renovated private bath. Enjoy watching TV or a movie in bed with the LCD TV/DVD provided. Down the hall is the 2nd bedroom which has twin beds with new mattresses, large closet and TV/DVD. The guest bath is a renovated full-size bath just outside the 2nd bedroom. There is a small patio with natural landscaping providing a little extra privacy and a good spot to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine.

The villa is an end-unit located in the Island House complex in the South Forest Beach area. The complex has its own large, private fenced-in pool and a bike storage rack for bike rentals. The beach is a little over a block away down the bike/walking path located right outside the entrance to the complex. If you enjoy tennis, the Van Der Meer Tennis Center is located just behind our complex and offers lessons and clinics. Hilton Head has beautiful wide beaches, miles of bike paths, great golf courses, nature preserves and trails, horseback riding, fishing and much more. The island has a lot to offer in the off-season as well - a temperate climate, shopping, theater and music productions, a wine festival, biking, golfing, jogging and tennis. Fly in and out of the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport if needed - it's just 45 minutes away.

** Our condo association rules limit us to one dog in the condo with owner's prior approval. We do not allow cats due to owner allergies.**

About Loren Means

We live in the Atlanta area and have family that also vacations in Hilton Head. Our kids love visiting and having time on the beach and we love getting away from the pace of our suburban lives.

Why Loren Means chose Island Areas

We chose Hilton Head Island because it is an easy drive from our home outside of Atlanta and because it is a very family friendly vacation spot. We like that the island has controlled development and preserved the natural beauty of the island. Besides enjoying the beach, Hilton Head offers many other activities such as golf, tennis, outdoor adventure tours and great shopping. Hilton Head is easy to access from the Savannah airport and there are many options for day trips to explore the low country within a short drive. We love that we can get on our bikes and ride on miles of paved bike paths and ride to shops and restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

Our condo is within a mile of Coligny Plaza, which has several shops, restaurants and a grocery store. We are also withing walking distance of the Bi-Lo shopping center, which has two of our favorite restaurants located there - Kenny B's and Wild Wing Cafe. It is only about an 8-10 min. walk from our place down to the sand. We have a grassy area just outside our back door where the kids can play and we can keep an eye on them. Being in a first floor unit without stairs makes packing and unpacking the car easier and is also good for any visiting 'snowbird' renters.

Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four plus dog enjoyed the condo very much.

The owner was quick to reply and gave us a lot of good information about the area.

The condo was well equipped with everything we needed to cook our family Thanksgiving fish fry. The kitchen had sharp knives, plenty of pots, pans, utensils, and dishes.

The location is perfect. We rode our rented bikes all over the island.

We appreciated that we were able to bring our dog. The condo has a pet area across the parking lot with poo bags.

Fabulous, Affordable family rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and our two boys had an absolutely wonderful experience in Hilton Head. The condo was a short walk to the beach and it was wonderful to have a beach cart, which had everything we needed to have a great time at the beach. The condo had all the amenities that our family needed. It was nice to see that it was even stocked with games. Every night before bed the whole family would play games. We also rented bikes and rode to Coligny Plaza to shop and get ice cream and Harbour Town. Our oldest suggested shark fishing, which I wasn't sure about at first. If you enjoy fishing, I would highly recommend you try it. The owners were very pleasant and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this condo to all my friends and family.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Island House for 10 days, and it was absolutely perfect! The unit is clean and bright, and we felt like we were at home! We rode our bikes to the beach, and spent a great deal of time in the huge pool! There are many things to do nearby such as Coligny Beach Park, Harbor Town, Lawton Stables, shopping, miniature golf, sightseeing, dolphin tours, as well as numerous restaurants and grocery stores. The owners were extremely friendly and responsive! I would recommend this unit to anyone!

Beach Day Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful Beach Day vacation in Hilton Head. This condo was the perfect location and the amenities were great for a family with small children. There were toddler utensils, a pack and play, and pool/beach toys that were available to use. The proximity to the beach was great. It was a short walk on paved bike paths. We used the beach cart for all of our gear and a stroller for the kids. We also rented bikes and went for ice cream and dinner in Coligny. The pool was nice too and our kids really enjoyed it. The condo itself was very comfortable for a family of four and clean. Hilton Head is very family friendly and this condo was the perfect location and the amenities were great. They supplied everything you would need for a comfortable stay. I definitely recommend this property and we will be returning next summer.

Fantastic, family friendly rental. Ideal location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently visited HHI for our summer vacation. We instantly fell in love with this condo, it was everything we could ask for in a rental, and more. We are a family of 4, with teenaged daughters, so having everything within walking/biking distance was perfect. The beach and the shops /restaurants in Coligny were only a 5 minute walk. As for the condo itself, it was clean and well stocked. Everything was updated and easy to use. The unit is dog friendly but you would never know that there had ever been a dog there. Everything was so fresh and clean. For our first trip to Hilton Head, the Island House condo was truly a highlight! We look forward to our visit next year!!

Perfect rental for small family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3, along with our furbaby, recently stayed here during our first trip to Hilton Head. We loved the location because it's an easy 5 minute walk to the beach, and quickly accessible to Coligny 's shops and restaurants. The condo was exceptionally clean, with no stains or the usual wear and tear we've come to expect during peak season. A dog - friendly unit was a requirement for us, though there was no sign of previous pets and, as another reviewer mentioned, it smelled very fresh and clean, no pet odors whatsoever. Loren and Bob have really put a lot of thought into what their renters need; kitchen is well stocked, and much to our surprise, there were even several sets of bathroom and kitchen towels, toilet paper, paper towels, and soaps (items we rarely find in beach rentals). The beach cart and beach chairs provided for our use were really convenient and made for an easy walk to the beach. The owners were very friendly, great to work with, and communicated promptly. Overall, this was a gem....the right size, the right price, the right location....Highly recommended!
