About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Located 2nd row to the best beach on Hilton Head Island (as featured in Hilton Head magazine). This southern-style beach house has a large porch with rockers and a swing to relax. It provides a private, heated pool and adjoining hot tub with lounge chairs for sun bathing. The kidney-shaped pool is surrounded by palms and overhanging live oak trees. There is an outdoor shower available when returning from the beach for your personal use. The pool may be heated for an additional charge. Please inquire.

It is minutes away from golf, tennis, shopping, and restaurants; yet its location at the end of a sandy lane in South Forest Beach affords peace and quiet with the sound of the ocean.

It is perfect for two or more families vacationing together, with the two master bedrooms.

On the main floor, the master bedroom has a King size bed with a brand new mattress, TV, private bath with deep tub and separate shower. Also on the main floor is a bedroom with two twin beds and a den/bedroom with a queen sized sleeper sofa. The den has a TV and shares a newly remodeled and upgraded bathroom with the twin bedroom.

On the 2nd floor, there is a newly added master bedroom with a king-size bed, TV and a large master bath. Also on the 2nd floor is a bedroom with another king size bed and a brand new double pillow top mattress. The next room has two twin beds. They share a large bathroom with a tub/shower/toilet and two sinks. There is also a small bedroom with a trundle bed which converts to 2 twin beds. There is a bathroom adjoining it with with a toilet and vanity. The washer and dryer are on the 2nd floor.

The living area is very open with two-story ceilings, and TV/VCR/DVD. The dining area is adjoining but separate with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool area. There is seating for ten plus two at the kitchen counter and four more at the window counter.

The kitchen has been expanded with granite counter tops and a center island. There is a brand new french style refrigerator with plenty of room for food for an entire week. The kitchen is great for cooking large meals or just preparing snacks.

There is under-house parking for two cars and space in the driveway for two more.

Our tropical retreat is located less than a mile from the famous Van der Meer Tennis Complex and includes one court hour per day with advance reservations. Also, 38 golf courses are located on the island. There are 40 miles of bike paths, and the beach stretches for 12 miles. Coligny Circle is a short bike ride and provides many amenities including many restaurants, shops, and fun for the whole family. Visit Shelter Cove Harbour and Harbour Town for fine/casual dining and great shopping, or enjoy a play at the new Cultural Arts Center. Both are just a short ride from the South Forest Beach area.

About The Owner

This is one of two houses that the Stratton Family has purchased for some family use and for rental. We manage the properties and rent them ourselves. Our renters save on the 30 percent fee that many of the management companies charge. We live in Marietta, Ga and travel to the properties regularly to keep the properties in tip top shape for the rental season.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose South Forest Beach

We have loved Hilton Head Island ever since my first visit there in 1980. We have been vacationing there on a regular basis ever since. We finally decided to buy a place and enjoy the island even more.

What makes this house unique

We love that the location is private, you can hear the sound of the waves from the ocean at night. The beach is very close and is never crowded. The new renovations have made the house even better.

Perfect family spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we expected. Clean & spacious. We never felt crowded with 2 couples, 4 small children & our babysitter all under one roof. Pool was clean & heated as we requested. The house sits on a culdesac second row from a beautiful beach. No rushing boulevard traffic or noise, yet just a 5 minute uber ride to the most highly recommended restaurants in Hilton Head. If you have a question or concern text the owner. D'Ette was a wonderful hostess. We had a blast & shall return!

Great location and home for a large family getaway! Needs some overall TLC to give it 5 stars.

  • 4 of 5

This property has a great layout with plenty of space for a large family with young kids. The pool area with hot tub is awesome! The owners are very quick to respond and easy to work with. The overall experience for us was good. We felt the property is getting a litttle run down and could use some TLC.

If privacy is your thing, 8 Cassina is the answer. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Pool is great. Beach is very close. We all, grandparents, kids and their parents ,had memorable experiences here.

Family Birthday

My family loved the house the pool and hot tub. Only drawback was my wife had a sore foot and she had trouble with the steps and walkway. Grandkids loved the tub in first floor bathroom. Nice walk to the beach. Owners were very helpful.

2.5 stars. Home is very nice, large rooms, large beds, nice furnishings, pool & area unusable.

  • 2 of 5

Here are the good things and the not so good things about our stay. The interior of the house is very comfortable with more than adequate amenities. We enjoyed that part of the trip. However, there was a large hole in our total enjoyment. We were accompanied by three granddaughters, 9 months, three years, and six years. One of the reasons we chose your place was the private pool. We never got a chance to use it. The pool was dirty, with leaves on the bottom and floating on top. The pool area had not been swept in a long time. The hot tub was cloudy, murky. Nobody was about to use either. Saturday morning two guys came and cleaned the pool and swept the pool area. But, since the entire family left the house about 10:00 AM for the SCAD graduation at 1:00 PM, there was no time to use the pool that morning. My daughter, her husband, and three daughters had to head toward Nashville as soon as that was over, about 3:30 PM. Thursday evening and all day Friday were all the open times we had to use the pool with the granddaughters. The kids never got a chance to get in the pool.

They did go to the beach Thursday and Friday. Friday night well after sundown on the edge of total darkness they witnessed a huge Loggerhead female exit the water, probably to lay eggs. There were other people on the beach which spooked her and she reentered the sea and left. Still, it was a wonderful experience for the kids.

One might ask why I did not call and get someone out to clean the pool. I paid a tidy sum for the facilities and in turn, I was supposed to receive specific things, among which was the pool. I should never have to ask for that which was supposed to have been provided, unless something broke, which does occasionally happen. I have a rental house too, so am familiar with things that break. In this instance, there was nothing broken, it was simply not useable due to not being clean. Additionally, thank goodness we were not planning to use the grill area as the table and chairs were also too dirty to use. The back porch and steps down to the pool were dirty and covered with leaves. My sister-in-law swept most of it in order to make it usable by the kids after they rinsed off after being at the beach.

I grade our visit as 2.5 stars at the most. Again, we did enjoy the interior of the home. It was large with comfortable beds. The unusable pool and pool area ruined the trip for us and our granddaughters. We will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Our pool company had just cleaned the pool and pool area the day before our guests arrived. Unfortunately there was a bad storm that night. Our pool company is on a schedule and unless they get a call informing them a pool needs an extra cleaning they don't go out to check after a storm. Our guests never informed us that the pool area was unusable until after they left. Had they called us or the pool company upon arrival, someone would have been out to take care of it and they would have been able to enjoy the pool and pool area during their stay.
