About Kathy and Gary Reynolds

Gary and Kathy love to cook, enjoy walking on the beach, playing tennis and exploring the low country from Savannah to historic Charleston.

Kathy and Gary Reynolds purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy and Gary Reynolds chose South Forest Beach

Our family has been vacationing on Hilton Head Island for many years. Our children enjoyed the island so much that we decided to invest in our own private 'get away' home. Located only 300 steps from the beach, our home allows maximum enjoyment of Hilton Head's beautiful waterfront.

What makes this house unique

The White House is conveniently located for shopping, restaurants and most important - the beach! We know you will enjoy the privacy and relaxing atmosphere of our home as much as we do!

Great for my big family

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly set up beach house for my big family (2 adults, 9 children). The floor plan is perfect for gathering and privacy with an outdoor shower to get the sand off feet right next to one of the bathrooms. Kids kept pacing off the 300 steps to the beach, and it is right on! Kitchen was well equipped for home cooked meals. The location is ideal, blocks from Caligny Beach and the resorts, and blocks from Sea Pines plantation...right in the middle. Feels like a private beach with the crowds just north and just south of where this property is located. The grill and appliances worked great as well as the showers and bathrooms. The owners were responsive and attentive to questions, but we really didn't have any, witch is a great thing! Overall a wonderful trip for my family.

One request: a spice rack with the staples would be nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you David! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our home. A spice rack is a good idea! We'll add that to the kitchen. Hope to see you again next year! All our best, Kathy and Gary Reynolds

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Nice layout, great pool, very close to beach. It's not clear from the pictures, but the house has a large central open area with kitchen, living room, dining, foyer, and the four bedrooms are separated in the four corners of the house, so plenty of privacy. The kitchen is well stocked. We had a great time, spent more time in the pool than at the beach.

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our vacation with our grown children! The house is open and has a lot of room. Never felt cramped. Love the pool and the closeness to the beach. The bedrooms are big and the beds are comfortable. There is not enough space here to give all of the positives! We all agree this is the house we want to come back to next time we are on Hilton Head!

Great Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the White House. The accommodations are very nice for a family our size. The house was very clean with comfortable furniture. The four bedrooms are located on each corner of the house with a large open area that holds the living room, dining room and kitchen in the center. It was a nice setup to be able to gather with the family when not on the beach. The pool is just outside the living area. The best part of our stay was the location that the house was on the beach. This house is in a neighborhood and is set back 3 or 4 houses from the beach path. A very short walk. The large resorts are on either side of the neighborhood so the beach is much less crowded than the resort areas. It was easy to see the difference when you took a walk or rode your bike up the beach. We could walk out in the morning and set up and there would never be anyone between us and the water. We would definitely return for another stay in the future.

Dream come true

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for all 11 of us (6 adults and 5 children ages 2-10). It was clean and very comfortable. The pool was clean and a nice size, and the pool guy came twice and cleaned it while we were there. That was extra nice after a rainy day. The vines and growth on the fence gave a sense of privacy that we enjoyed. We were very close to a beach that was never crowded. Only once were there more than a few people there when we were. We were close to everything we needed/wanted. The only concern was that the television in the kids room was not working. That was little concern since it was only later evening when we wanted to use it. The Wi-Fi worked well even with several devices using it at a time. We brought a fire stick and that allowed us to access favorite movies for the kids when we had down time and they needed some entertainment. We have friends who live in the area and they came and saw the house and are going to recommend it to others who come to the area and need this large of a space. We would definitely consider this home again and would recommend it to anyone!

Excellent one-level home in South Forest Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family vacation. One-level with a great layout. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Appliances are in excellent condition and the house is very well maintained. It is located in a quite neighborhood that is just steps away from the beach! Highly recommend this house. Our family made great memories during this stay including my sisters beach wedding and reception with a few friends and family! Thanks to Kathy and Gary for sharing their house. We hope to visit again in the future.
