About Arnold Whittelsey
Susan and I were born Yankees but we are Southeners by choice!! We decided that if we had a home at the beach on beautiful Hilton Head Island we would see much more of our children and grandchildren. It has proven to be true!!
Arnold Whittelsey purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Arnold Whittelsey chose South Forest Beach
Susan and I chose to purchase our villa at SeaSide Villas because it is located on the most beautiful beach from Maine to Florida. We had been coming to Hilton Head Island as often as possible for over 30 years as we have always considered the Island to be a very special place. In 1998, we were fortunate enough to be able to move to the Island and we never tire of the beach, ambiance and beauty of this magnificently treed Island.
What makes this Villa unique
The ocean view from the balcony and the closeness to the beach. There is no building closer to the uncrowded beach. The close proximity to Coligney Plaza with its many restaurants, shops and other amenities

Short walk to everything
Location of property is convenient to beach, shopping, music & much more. This was our 2nd stay in this unit, 7th year staying in the complex. The new flooring looks nice. The unit had everything we needed to make an enjoyable stay. If I could suggest one thing it would be to upgrade the HVAC-unit to some how be able to cool the sleeping area.
Our family will be back again next year :)
We enjoyed our condo and stay
This little condo was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. Only comment is that we should have been told about the transition to the new key for the gates. Had a very hard time with that due to the security guards. Once we got that figured out, we had a good time. Would come back and rent the same condo again.
The space was very clean and comfortable. The description on rye website was very accurate.
A few adjustments would be helpful. There is no trash can in the bathroom and as far as the sulfur smell when the hot water was turned on, it would be nice to add that to the check in information. The owner did respond rather quickly to the problem and his instructions did fix it and we had no more issues. Overall we were very much pleased with our visit and the weather was fantastic!!
There has always been a trash basket in the bathroom; perhaps a previous guest moved it to another location. As the guest said, I replied rapidly regarding the smell. It is not an on going issue so I will not add it to the check in information.
An Enjoyable Stay
We love HHI so any stay is always an enjoyable one for us. Great and convenient location. Loved being able to see the ocean from our patio & make only a short stroll to the beach. It was kinda tight quarters for 3 adults and where to put your clothes but, it was managable by moving a few things around. No, complaints, but lamp in living area did work; lights on fan and fans both need longer pull cords; would be nice to have trash basket & hair dryer in bathroom; drains seemed to run slow but that may be norm; & beach chairs left a bit to be desired. Very charming place though with nice seaside decor and we did thoroughly enjoy our stay
Thank you. Janet, EJ and Mom
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments as all of the comments afford me the opportunity to make the condo a more pleasurable experience. I usually replace the beach chairs at the end of May but now believe I should replace at the beginning of May. I will put a waste basket in the bathroom and add more chain to the fans/lights Your comment regarding hair dryer is something I had not thought off and I will
put one in the condo.
Thanks again for your comments.
Unit was adiquit for the length of time we were staying. Would have liked to have had a screen door on the patio. The ceiling , fan, lights & vents all need a good spring cleaning. The bed was really comfortable!!!!
Thanks for the review. I will put a sliding screen on the patio door asap and have the cleaners address the fan, lights and vents.
Sea Side Villa Condo
We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. The only thing that I didn't like was I never could log on to the WiFi and we did not have any way of contacting the owner. But the condo was perfect for a week for 2 people. Good location to the beach. Good location to Coligny. You could walk or even catch a 4 seater golf cart that comes around. I recommend this condo and I hope to come again next year!!
