About Owner/Manager

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, specifically, North Forest Beach was a perfect fit.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2009

Why Owner/Manager chose North Forest Beach

There's no better place than Hilton Head for a beach vacation, golf trip and family retreat: -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 this house (The Friendly Flamingo), as it's conveniently located on Flamingo Street. This is our second home in Hilton Head (North Forest Beach) as the whole family helped picked out the name. It's a single story (no stairs) with plenty of room for two families, a family with grandparents or three couples. We're put some serious focus into the backyard, and converting it into a private oasis... 900 sq ft of deck, with a 35' 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 is one house from the 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 4 blocks and you're in downtown of Hilton Head, Coligny, and ready to enjoy 50+ shops and restaurants.

Great location, perfect home family

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 7 month-old daughter and I visited HHI in mind-may and this house was a perfect match. It's not the most glamorous home on the island but it was comfortable and clean with some great outdoor areas. The house had plenty of space for the three of us with all of the gear we brought in tow (or rented) for the baby and we could have easily fit a couple more. It was clean, well kept and had all of the basic amenities needed for a good trip. The pool area was great, we paid for heating and the pool was refreshing at all times. We were able to get sun back there through the late afternoon while also finding shady spots if you needed a break. We also found several pool floats, beach chairs and beach toys in the closet outside which was a welcome surprise. It was a short walk, no more than five minutes, to the first beach access point via Egret St. It also put you out to a virtually crowd-less point on the beach, so there was plenty of room for games and spreading out. Being close to Coligny Plaza with it's numerous dining options was great as well, you could essentially park your car for the week without moving it if you wanted to.

We will definitely look into to returning to the property due to it's location, cleanliness and pool/outdoor space.

Great house on HHI

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in this home. The location is great - a quick walk to the beach or Coligny Plaza, right next to the bike paths - but feels removed from the crowds and is on a quiet street. You can look just down the beach and see the crowds at the Coligny Beach but be practically alone on North Forrest Beach. We also loved the pool and jacuzzi. For spring break, you will want to pay the extra $ to heat the pool. The house is a comfortable size and the kitchen is well-equipped.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Just a perfect home away from home. Excellent location on a quite street yet close to the beach, shopping at Coligny Plaza and lots of restaurants. There were 6 adults and we cooked every night but one and had all we needed in the kitchen. Plenty of room so we never felt like we were walking all over each other. The salt water pool and hot tub were heavenly as we did a 3 day 30 mile walk for breast cancer. The property was very clean and well maintained. Owner was very responsive when needed. Will recommend and will go back.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

The 8 flamingo home we stayed at was perfect! We rented 3 homes for a Destination Wedding at the Omni and this home was great for the family. If you had any questions or needs the management was more then accommodating. The house sleeps up to 8 and has a nice pool with a heated connecting jacuzzi. The house is located on a quite street but is still close to the ocean. It was also a short drive to shopping, restaurants, and bike rentals. If you are looking for a quite home, close to the beach for your Hilton Head vacation, look no further then 8 Flamingo!
