About Mark Taylor

My father built his name in the association world. He came from a humble background in Tennessee to go on and be Valedictorian and captain of his college football team. This house was his retirement dream and lived here 10 years. I am sure that he hopes that all who come enjoy the sights and sounds as he was once able to do.

Mark Taylor purchased this house in 1997

Why Mark Taylor chose South Forest Beach

This is the absolutely the best location on Hilton Head Island. Located just between coligny circle and sea pines plantation ocean gate, you have the best of both worlds. Go north (on beach or car) and everything you wants is within one mile. Tiki bars, Piggly Wiggly/Bi lo, restaurants, volleyball, bike rentals, waterpark. Go south along the beach and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of sea pines beaches. Drive south 1 mile and play the sea pines golf courses.

What makes this house unique

Five master bedrooms were made so all visitors can be very comfortable. The screened in porch with the 6 rocking chairs and couch is the most busy room as the ocean views never ceases to amaze.

Great location, but needs to have a handyman go throughout the entire house

  • 3 of 5

Great location, but needs to have a handyman go throughout the entire house to address maintenance and upgrade/replacement in many areas. There are numerous issues that can be handled quickly that would make this home the gem as advertised. Just to name a few: slow drains, non-working hot tub (owner did not disclose prior to our arrival), awfully dirty carpeting on the indoor stairs leading to the pool area on ground floor, cabinet doors off their hinges (dangerous), non-working elevator. I could go on, but you get the picture. The owner was responsive to the hot tub issue, but that did not make up for fact that I rented a house with a working hot tub. Major disappointment.

Owner's Response: Hot Tub has been replaced with a new one. I apologize for any inconvenience. Elevator was repaired upon notification. Interior carpeting that is located on stairs leading to garages (not located inside area of house that is heated/cooled) was professionally cleaned this spring. All other carpet was replaced last spring. All other issues will be address as this is the first time I was notified of these repair issues.

Wonderful property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and could not have asked for a better place. Our children loved being able to both swim, use the hot tub and easily access the beach. We rented bikes and had the best time riding them on the beach. I enjoy running and found some amazing trails to take. The accommodations were for more than enough for our family of five. Highly recommend this property!

Beautiful, comfortable, perfect vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This oceanfront home is a wonderful place for a beach vacation ! Perfectly located in South Forest Beach near restaurants and shopping. Big enough to accommodate up to 12 people with 5 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need including bakeware, pots and pans, plenty of dishes etc. The screened in porch has a relaxing view of the ocean and is a great place to sit and read or enjoy morning coffee. The beach is steps away where you can enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset or go for a swim. Plenty of beach chairs for everyone! This is a perfect home away from home; very comfortable and elegant. I have visited here for the past several years and highly recommend it!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this beautiful home for Memorial Day weekend. There were 9 adults and 2 children. The home is huge and well appointed. We all had plenty of space to spread out and have privacy needed. The pool and hot tub were perfect! The walk to the beach on the lighted walkway was very convenient. We hope to rent this home year after year as we loved it so very much!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your home in South Forest Beach. I rented it as a surprise in celebration of my husband's 50th birthday and he was truly surprised and very excited. We live in Sea Pines and he wanted to stay in HH for his birthday and Thanksgiving, therefore I felt like this was the best of both worlds....stay in HH, but be on vacation! Our three boys (28, 23 and 20) were able to be here for the entire time and we had such a nice time together. Your home was perfect for our Thanksgiving celebration with my father and his wife and my sister who came in from Savannah and New York.

The view was to die for from the master bedrooms and living room upstairs to the den/kitchenette and bedroom downstairs. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck at the end of your boardwalk and the sunsets were absolutely stunning.

Your kitchen was certainly well stocked and we didn't eat out one night! We heated the pool for the first 3 days and unfortunately those days weren't great weather wise. If we had a crystal ball, we probably should've given the heat another day or two as for the rest of our stay the weather was spectacular.

All in all, we would definitely rent your home again and hope to make this an annual event for our family.

Thank you again.....................

Cologny Circle has fantastic restaurants. Southern Coney Island has best pancakes ever. Kenny B's has great sunday brunch buffet and awesome po boy sandwiches. Amiga's has great burritos (size of a football ) and strong gold margaritas. Sea Shack is the best seafood on the island at a budget price. Try the scallop appetiser for dinner as they can grill, blacken or fry them. I get one of each. Wild wings is always a family favorite.
