About John & Barb Mulhern

Barb and I have enjoyed vacationing, with our family and friends on Hilton Head for a number of years. Being from Pennsylvania the southern hospitality and relaxing atmosphere present the perfect place to get away from the hectic pace of the northeast and relax.

John & Barb Mulhern purchased this Villa in 2009

Why John & Barb Mulhern chose South Forest Beach

After vacationing on Hilton Head for many years, during our stay the summer of 2009, we decided it was time to purchase our own place on Hilton Head. We chose Springwood in South Forest Beach for a number of reasons. The location of the villa itself is quiet and serene yet only footsteps from the hub of the Island, Coligny Plaza and beach. When we walked into the unit and saw the layout and size of the villa we thought it was perfect. Then we looked out of the windows of the villa and saw the view of the lagoon and pool we knew it was Paradise Found.

What makes this Villa unique

This end 2 story 3 bedroom 3 1/2 bath villa is in the last building of Springwood. The view of the lagoon and pool can be seen from every room. There is plenty of off street parking and there is no thru traffic to worry about. There is a food store just behind Springwood and restaurants within walking distance. There is a locked storage shed to keep beach equipment, bikes or golf clubs. We provide discount coupons for select local restaurants and a food market savers club card.

                                                                Beautiful 2nd Floor Unit

                                                                Kevin L.

                                                                The unit was very spacious, in excellent shape, and reasonably convenient to everything in the area. As other reviews mentioned, it is a 12 or 13 minute walk to the beach if you use the shortcut, but with the beach cart provided it was certainly reasonable, if you're used to walking.

                                                                One major concern worth noting is that this is a 2nd Floor unit. While the description clearly states that the unit is not handicap accessible, it does not explain that the entrance is on the 2nd floor. It requires a climb of 14 or 15 exterior, concrete and steel stairs. This definitely adds to the difficulty of checking in/out, loading up for the beach, or even just shopping for groceries.

                                                                The complex itself is not particularly well suited for families, there is no accessible green space to play, no playground, basketball hoop, etc. In addition, the only access to the pool area from this unit is down a narrow, steel, spiral staircase from a shared back balcony.

                                                                Unfortunately for us, the pool area was under construction and closed for the entire duration of our stay, and we were never told of this project when we booked. It was very disappointing, since that pool time was definitely planned as part of our vacation.

                                                                The unit itself is very well maintained and spacious, and the owners were excellent to deal with.

                                                                Most of the concerns I've noted are specific challenges to the group we vacationed with. I just wish we had more information prior to booking, because we would have found a place more suitable for our group.

                                                                Great location and comfortable condo

                                                                Pamela H.

                                                                We loved the location of this condo - convenient to shops, restaurants, the beach, and more. Very comfortable with lots of room. Great value with access to a fitness center and indoor pool which was wonderful since we spent January and February in Hilton Head. Beautiful views of the swimming pool and lagoon from all the windows. We liked it so much we have already booked for next year!

                                                                We Found Paradise on Hilton Head Island.

                                                                Amy M.

                                                                Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 teens/college students) completely LOVED our week in this villa. It absolutely defied expectations. From the lanai out back we were steps away from the inviting, clean and roomy community pool. We were pleasantly surprised to see a small 3 foot alligator and almost a dozen turtles swimming around in the lagoon every day. We spent our mornings having breakfast outside on the villa and enjoying the peacefulness of the community.

                                                                The villa itself was spacious, homey, and clean. The owner contacted us before we left to let us know that they were aware that a small bit of damage had occured from a previous guest. They were only a phone call away with any questions and concerns. All ammenities were like new and abundant. The towels were fresh and fluffy and the rooms kept at a comfortable temperature. Having 4 bathrooms was a definite plus. We were able to utilize the beach cart and chairs for our excursions to the Coligny Beach. They do supply a small supply of items for the kitchen but you will want to bring extra laundry soap and hand soap for the bathrooms as well as paper napkins and paper towels for the rest of the week. The beds were firm yet comfortable and linens were clean and fresh.

                                                                It was very convenient having a grocery market just 'out back' of the property. I recommend using them and not going to the Publix which was horribly overcrowded and busy. The walk to the beach took about 10 - 12 minutes if you cut through the shopping center. Plenty of free parking available, however, if you are so inclined to drive.

                                                                The villa is close to so many amenities and activities and within a short driving distance to everything else. We loved our stay at John and Barbara's vacation home and will definitely be renting again. We found paradise on Hilton Head Island.

                                                                Cozy beach villa

                                                                Randa L.Easley, SC

                                                                First impressions were great. It is close to the beach and right in the center of everything. The only complaint we had was that the beds were hard and lumpy. Will definitely book again and just bring a mattress topper to make it softer. Having use of the beach cart and chairs were awesome as well.

                                                                Just like it was pictured in VRBO.

                                                                The property was neat and clean. Lots of room for 6 people! It had everything we needed. The walk to the beach was longer than I expected; it was about a 15 walk to the public beach access going through the Bi Low parking lot. We had a wonderful experience!


                                                                Sandra W.

                                                                Wonderful place to stay. There were 6 if us and everything was perfect and convenient. Great pool a few blocks from the beach. A must thankyou.
