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 Island Areas

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.

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.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. We had two families stay together and had plenty of room for us all. Great location. Easy walk to everything you would want to do. And most importantly plenty of room for us all to sit down and eat dinner as two families together.

Needs some work and updating

  • 2 of 5

Our vacation started with a negative impression when we checked in 30 minutes after the allowed time and found the cleaning ladies having just started. Instead of being apologetic, they were rude and didn't try to accommodate our request to bring in our luggage, etc. It was poorly cleaned with dirty towels left in the bathroom and dirty floors.

The walk to the beach is long and the cart that is provided had a broken wheel making it that much longer.

There is definitely plenty of room - although the bathrooms are small - but the furnishings need to be updated - they are old and worn. With a small investment, the condo could be much nicer and more inviting.

The complex is definitely not like the surrounding properties. It appears to consist of more year-round residents and doesn't have the curb appeal of those in the immediate area.

As good as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well stocked villa in an extremely convenient location. Walk to the grocery store and beach is great shortcut through the back gate. Did not get to use the pool due to season we visited but appeared to be very well maintained. Improvements to the stream retaining wall were in process and entire common area of property is very scenic and well maintained. Biggest plus: 4 bathrooms. Biggest minus: Lots of stairs to climb
