The large kitchen spills into the recently updated outside living area (1300 sq ft) which includes one of the largest pools & spas in NFB, an abundance of deck space and 6’ privacy fence. The street is lined with a canopy of oak trees, and the front of the house insulated by a city-zoned park, promoting one of the most peaceful sections of North Forest Beach.

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.

What a lovely home to spend the week with girlfriends!
We loved the location which goes with the saying,"Location, location, location!" It took 2 minutes to walk to the beach. We walked every morning on the beach before breakfast. If we wanted to eat close, it was a 10 minute walk to Coligny Circle. Once there, you could shop to your hearts content! If you like to ride bikes, the Bike path is just around the corner. You'll get tired before you run out of bike paths. On days we just wanted to kick back , the pool in the back yard fit the bill. Oh, I almost forgot. Their video library was vintage but extensive. Our group enjoyed several films to share laughs and tears. Just a Fun place to spend the week!
Great location for a beach vacation
We were a short walk to the beach and the pool was a great substitute. Overall the property is great for a small family. We had 5 adults and one child. We really enjoyed the property.
Great week at the beach
The house was clean and slept our party of 10 adults comfortably. It's walking distance to both the beach and the town area with restaurants and a grocery store.
Great Beach House
We stayed at the Happy Heron for 17 days in September. It was a great beach house. It had been very nicely remodeled inside. The house had a lot to offer: the pool and hot tub which were cleaned twice a week and had plenty of pool furniture; exactly 5 minute walk to a quiet beach; everything in the house worked; NO STEPS; very clean; nicely furnished and in a very quiet established residential area near Coligny. The best part was that the owners lived on the island. Would not hesitate to rent this home again. Thanks Margo and Jim.
House was perfect for our vacation.
The house was clean, well equipped and relaxing. The landscaping in the front could have been more well kept, but it was nothing we couldn't work around as we mostly used the door by the pool. I could not recommend this property more! It was everything we needed for a relaxing vacation.
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Unfortunately you arrived right on the heels of a tropical storm that blew debris all over the island. The yard crews did their best to clean up as fast as they could. It just took a few days to get to every home. All is cleaned up now!
Perfect vacation House
First time staying at this house but booked others with Jim/Margot. They are always just a phone call , text or email away very responsive. Perfect location to beach or Coligney plaza.Thank you again for another unforgettable Vacation.
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.
