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.

We Found Paradise on Hilton Head Island.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this villa! It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Really close to everything (less than 10 minutes to the beach), even less if you get a shuttle and had great amenities. My kids (and I) were excited to watch a mama turtle lay her eggs right under our balcony. We also enjoyed Hilton Head Island, seeing all the great wildlife and spending time at the beach. We recommend this villa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We have also been fortunate enough to see the turtles lay their eggs. We appreciate the fact that you took such good care of our villa during your stay. We hope that when you are ready to visit Hilton Head again in the future that you will consider renting our villa again. John & Barb

We loved our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Wow. First let me say that we are repeat renters. We stayed here several years ago and returning to this villa was like seeing a friend. This is ideal for one or two families. Every bedroom has a full private bath and there's a powder room off of the living room. Why would anyone rent a hotel room when this is available? Dining, living room and bedrooms comfortably fit 8. Full kitchen is here if you don't want to go out for some of your meals. The beach is a short walk, a 2 minute bike ride, or a 30 second drive. You are close to stores and restaurants at Coligny Plaza but you are in a secluded area. Free use of fitness and tennis center is there but we preferred the private pool that is literally outside the villa. Great location, close to Sea Pines/Harbourtown, and Shelter Cove. There is a nice outdoor patio overlooking the lagoon/pool for morning coffee. Grocery stores, restaurants, ice cream; everything is just a minute or two away. Perhaps the greatest advantage here is dealing directly with the owners. Have a question? You have their number. Stay somewhere else and you might be dealing with a management company or leaving a voicemail. The owners provide everything you need including bikes and beach chairs. A professional cleaning service is used. The villa looked and smelled clean. We were provided with more towels and linens than we could use in a week along with paper products, soap, dish and laundry detergent (yes there is a washing machine and dryer in the laundry room!), even coffee filters - everything you need to start relaxing and not worry about shopping. We can't wait to return. The villa helped make our week a prefect vacation.
