House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
We've always loved the beach and have been 'beach people'. It probably dates back many years when my parents took our family to Litchfield (S. Myrtle) each summer, where we rented a house, and did everything beach... ride waves, build sand castles, steam crabs, and enjoy spending time with family. I met my wife on another beach, Manhattan Beach (Los Angeles) playing beach volleyball. When we moved back to the East Coast, we always knew we wanted a beach house, and Hilton Head, specifcally, North Forest Beach was a perfect fit.
Owner/Manager purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner/Manager chose North Forest Beach
There's no better place than Hilton Head for a beach vacation or golf trip: -beautiful beaches -close to Atlanta -many, many golf courses -plenty of tennis courts -quiet and peaceful -super nice people -an established Island with plenty of shopping and fun things to do
What makes this House unique
We absolutely love our beach home (The Happy Heron), as it's conviently located on Heron Street. It's a single story (no stairs) with plenty of room for two families, and the two living rooms (dens) are set-up perfectly to give the kids and adults plenty of quiet time. We've put some serious focus into the backyard, and converted it into a private oasis... 1300 sq ft of deck, with a 40' pool (salt) and an 8 person hot tub. If you're looking for a quiet nights sleep, you're going to the right place, as the house is insulated with a town-zoned park (4.5 acres). Hilton Head is known for it's bike paths, and our front yard empties onto a path that will take you for miles, from Sea Pines to Port Royal. Finally, when you just don't want to cook, walk a short 5 blocks and you're in the downtown of Hilton Head, Coligny, and ready to enjoy 60+ shops and restaurants.

Everything was perfect
This house is amazing. A perfect beach house. Would recommend highly.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave! We had a couple issues but communication was great and they were resolved. The twin bunk beds were too firm for my liking but the couch was super comfortable so I ended up sleeping on the couch. The hot tub and pool were fantastic! I would not hesitate to stay at this property again! Super close to the beach, great outdoor space and cozy interior. I miss the home and location so much! The wifi is not great but it was pretty nice to just unplug for the week so that really didn't cause any issues at all. This is a great find!
Location was the KEY and only redeeming quality
1. location to the beach huge plus
2. Water pressure in the showers.
3. Propery management quick to respond to issue that occurred
4. Towels provided were great.
1. Master bed mattress was horrible
- We actually bought mattress pads so we did not have to leave.
2. floors where very dirty
3. Kitchen cabinets where gross
4. draws in the refrigerator where broken, actually cracked.
5. Cobbwebs hanging from kitchen cabinetss
6. Internet was slow, spotty and horrible.
7. Washer and Dry were from the 90's it appeared.
took forever to dry.
Any reviews that you see for this property that where 100% positive must be created by the owner or a relative.The house needs a lot of updating and a HUGE CLEANING!!! We had one issue... water was shutoff for about 15 minutes, the property manager was very good and quick to respond. The management company needs to get the property owner to update and clean the house. From the cleanliness of the house it looks like the house is not rented that often. cobbwebs haning from the kitchen cabinet should say it all. I rented the house for two weeks and the only reason I stayed was because of the proximity to the beach.
I would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone.
Many of these concerns could have been addressed during the visit if this guest had let us know. Sometimes during a quick turn around day, cleaning issues can be missed. We would have sent the cleaner back immediately. Other than the water shut off, nothing else was mentioned to us at the time. While he noted we were quick to respond, we would have been quick to respond to the other issues as well but were not given the chance.
We have never had a complaint about the mattress. Mattress needs vary with guests so perhaps they were used to a different firmness or softness. It is a fairly new mattress.
Vrbo is very strict with who can leave reviews on their sites. The guests have to have booked and paid through Vrbo at this property - there is no way for an owner or relative to leave a review. All the reviews on this site are legitimately from a guest that stayed in this home, many within weeks of this guest.
The owner completes updates etc every off season so interested renters can be rest assured that any small issues noted here will be addressed.
Dream family trip
We had a wonderful time in Hilton Head. It was so amazing to be able to bike easily to so many shops and restaurants. We only used our car a couple times the entire week. Was such an easy walk to beach we went several times each day. Everyone was so friendly and was so relaxing bringing our dog. The house was perfect for our family and we had a great time. The pool area was amazing and the beds were probably the most comfortable I have stayed at in a home. This was the best home we have rented through vrbo. The pool was cleaned mid week and we had no issues at all. The owners answered all of my questions before our trip and arranged the bike rentals. It was one of the first trips my wife was truly upset to have to leave and go home. Thanks for a wonderful time. We will definitely look into renting again!
Nice house close to beach and Coligny
This house was roomy for our family of 7 and the beds were comfortable. There are plenty of puzzles to pick from and having 2 living rooms with TV’s is a bonus. We liked coming back from the beach for lunch and taking a dip in the pool. This house really felt like a home away from home and is a short walk to the beach and a quick drive to Coligny. Property manager was quick to respond and correct a couple of issues; air conditioning was struggling until filters were replaced and dryer was slow drying clothes but worked better when service was performed.
Hilton Head Island is the home of the nationally renowned Harbourtown Lighthouse and the best golf and tennis in the country. Located on North Forest Beach on Hilton Head Island, the home is in a very private residential area. Access to the beach is very limited so it is never crowded. A short walk takes you to shopping and many different restaurants. The island area has many golf courses, tennis, fitness centers, two outlet malls, four star restaurants, and many national retailers. Grocery shopping is very economical and there are many choices if you choose to cook in. A one hour drive takes you to beautiful Savannah or Beaufort, both historical cities with beautiful antebellum homes. Two hours takes you to Charleston.
