The 18' by 32' pool is the perfect place to spend a sunny Hilton Head Island day with the kids or take a private evening swim. The very private lawn and garden area with all of the wonderful flowers, is one of the most beautiful on North Forest Beach. It provides a perfect spot to sit, relax and listen to the surf and the birds singing or to simply enjoy your favorite book. A deck runs the entire length of the house where you can enjoy a cool drink at the end of the day while watching the dolphins play and the moon come up over the ocean. The spa, built into the deck, is very private and is the perfect place to start the evening and unwind after a busy day. The sound of the surf and the warm breeze under the Carolina moon will make your vacation one to remember. Your time at the 'Star of the Sea' will make memories to cherish and you will want to return year after year to your special home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented many homes at many beaches for the past 30 years. Star of the Sea is now the favorite. We plan on coming back in 2016, and for many years to come.

The home has everything. The spacious eat in kitchen was a plus for our three generations of family. It is well equipped and we enjoyed sharing our family meals there.

The family room was big enough for all 14 of us to watch movies together. The bedrooms, pool table room, deck and the pool area are the best we ever experienced.

We loved the beach view and the short walk to get to the beach.

We especially like how Star of the Sea is a very short walk to Coligny. The grandkids loved being so close to the "ice cream cone" store.

The owners are wonderful to work with. Our 8 year old granddaughter left her prized souvenir in one of the desk drawers in the kitchen. Margie, the owner, called the family renting Star of the Sea the week after we were there. That wonderful family found our granddaughter's treasure and mailed it to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Truly, there are not enough superlatives to describe our stay at our new favorite home away from home.

Star of the Sea is STELLAR!!

  • 5 of 5

We arranged a week rental in June 2017 to celebrate my parent's 80th birthdays. Three generations were in and out of the house all day, coming and going, hitting the beach, playing pool, biking the beach, paddle boarding and we cooked or ordered in every night. The house is fantastic, clean, well organized and well equipped. Someone needed an ironing board (!) and we located it. We needed more dining space, and we found a card table with chairs. Loads of towels, two beach chairs and an umbrella. The owners are extremely responsive to inquiries before and after the lease is signed. Beach access is easy, the views are breathtaking, the pool is clean (the pool cleaner came one day for weekly maintenance) and the rocking chairs on the back porch were in constant use by young and old. Private bathrooms with the bedrooms are much appreciated and the pool table quickly became the center of activity for the teenagers. It is well designed and super clean. We quickly realized how valuable the 4 car garage is, plus the large driveway, due to the beach proximity and no street parking. We would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Hi Robin Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our home. We certainly appreciate your kind words and generous comments. We have had many guests tell us that all members of the family, young and older alike appreciate the comfort and convenience of our home. There is the activity of the game room with the HDTV, pool table, and wet bar, the great room with it's large HDTV and the surround sound system, the large kitchen for the chef in the family, the huge deck overlooking the ocean with the hot tub and large outdoor dining table, the quiet and private pool with its relaxing lounge chairs and the private bedrooms and baths. A get-a-way spot for everyone! It's great to be so close to Coligny also, to walk in the morning for coffee, or the newspaper and in the evening to get ice cream, or dinner or drinks. It's so convenient that everything is within walking distance! You and you're family are certainly welcome back and we thank you again for choosing our home for your family vacation. Please give your parents our best wishes for a happy and healthy belated birthday and many more wonderful and blessed ones to come. Thank you again, Margie

Great House and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at The Star of the Sea and once again we had a wonderful stay! We have three generations with 8 adults and 5 children ages 11 down to 3 months and this house works perfectly for us. The large dining table and large kitchen allows us the pleasure to eat most meals in. And the bedrooms with the private baths were great for our family. We love the ocean front views but at the same time enjoy the privacy of no direct beach access from the back yard. The beach access itself is very convenient and easily maneuvered for our morning hauls of tents, chairs, coolers and kids! The owners keep the house in excellent condition and do check in to make sure all is working properly. The convenient location to shopping and dining in Coligny is an added bonus. We've already booked a return trip next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Ann and Vern, Thank you so much for your wonderful review and for choosing our home for your family vacation. It was a pleasure once again to have you as our guests. Our home is a great family home and we are so happy that your family enjoyed spending the week there. It is perfect for everyone, with the large kitchen, the game room and all of the bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Everyone has their own space! The pool and the yard are perfect for the kids, being so private and secure. We know you all loved the easy walk to Coligny and all of the stores and activities there! We are so glad that you reserved your week for next year already- The summer does get booked up quickly! Thanks again, Margie

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

The Star of the Sea is truly a star. The house is beautiful with a very well stocked kitchen, spacious living areas, wonderful pool and awesome view. There were 12 of us (6 adults and 6 kids) and everyone had a fantastic time and loved every bit of the house. The privacy in the back yard is just what you are looking for on vacation and the access to the beach is super easy and close. The access even has a ramp rather than stairs which was GREAT for hauling the beach cart. The giant table in the kitchen was the perfect size for everyone to sit at once. The location couldn't be better for dining and shopping at Coligny Circle. The owners are great communicators and take very good care of their home. We can't wait for our next vacation at the Star of the Sea!

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa Thank you for your great review! I know how challenging it is to vacation with a larger family (we number 15 when we're all together) but it is so rewarding and the memories that are made are priceless. Our home is large enough that everyone can find their space but when they want to be together the kitchen is often the spot to be. With our huge dining table 12 can be seated comfortably and the bar with 4 stools usually seats some of the men who like to discuss their latest golf game. Also the very private yard with our large swimming pool along with being so convenient to Coligny Plaza makes for a wonderful vacation for all. We welcome you back to our home soon! Thanks again, Margie

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Both the location and the home were what we were looking for in a vacation rental. The oceanfront location was perfect for beach access with young children, and we thoroughly enjoyed the view from the deck. The pristine pool was a hit with the children, the open kitchen and large table were great for family dining, and the bedrooms accommodated three generations easily. The owners are very responsive and obviously take the upkeep and maintenance of their property seriously. It is a rental home that I would recommend without hesitation.

As advertised and more...

  • 5 of 5

We've rented homes in Sea Pines in the past. While we enjoyed the tranquility and privacy, we missed the convenience and energy of a place closer to shops and buzzing with people. The house is clean, accommodating, and on the beach with views to the ocean. The owners were easy to deal with regarding logistics, they care about their property and it shows, and they care d about our experience. We had 7 adults and my 2 children. All slept comfortably and we had space to separate, if need be...I would recommend this property for families and friends.

Great location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several homes and condos over the years on HHI. This house was one of the best with the best layout and location. Owners were also very attentive and prompt in sending information. They even called to check in when we arrived to make sure all was ok. We like to be close to the beach and Coligny and this house offered both. Perfect!
