About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy our 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, ground floor corner condo on Hilton Head Island. We are located in Xanadu Villas in South Forest Beach, across the street from the beach and less then a 1/2 miles walk to Caligny Plaza, the 'downtown' of Hilton Head Island. No stairs or elevator, you walk out to the pool and tennis court in the beautifully landscaped private courtyard.

Xanadu is a gated complex with a moat, yes a moat! Enjoy sitting on the rear patio watching the birds (herons, egrits, hummingbirds) and feed the turtles that live in the moat (they like saltines and goldfish crackers). Our patio is secluded due to the location of our unit and you are steps from the pool and the tennis courts. You can also relax on the front balcony and feed the turtles from there.

The condo has three bedrooms, one king size bed and two sets of twin beds. There is ample room in the master for a portacrib as well. There is a washer and a dryer just outside the unit for the entire floor should you require it. Bath and bed linens are provided and the kitchen is stocked with everything I could think of that might be useful. You are a walk or bike ride away from Caligny plaza where you can find virtually everything, stores of every sort, restaurants, movie theater etc. We fell in love with the area on a visit in 2005 and decided to buy a place then and there, it's a wonderful family friendly area and I expect you will love it as much as we do.

About The Owner

I am an attorney and my husband is a civil engineer from the Hudson Valley in new York. Despite the myriad activities available in Hilton Head, my husband and I mostly look forward to doing next to nothing when we are down there, my husband does his crossword puzzles sitting on the patio and feeds the birds. I ride my bike to the gym and then feed the turtles before heading to the beach. The people we have met have been lovely and the weather is great. We have been updating the condo little by little since we purchased it. We usually spend about a month a year in it and always try to improve it from the year before.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Forest Beach

We were contemplating buying a vacation/retirement property and had been leaning towards Puerto Rico when we visited my husband's cousin who had relocated to Hilton Head. Once there we just fell in love with the area, loved that we could drive there which enables us to use it more often and loved that in the South Forest Beach neighborhood we could get to almost anything without having to get into the car. The beach is huge, flat and right across the street, and our stretch of beach is essentially exclusive to the neighborhood as there is no public parking there.

What makes this condo unique

One of my favorite things about our condo is the moat, and the fact that we are on the ground floor and can really enjoy watching the wildlife in the courtyard. I love feeding the turtles, and they really get used to their twice daily feedings, they start to gather like clockwork!

Great Location For HHI trip.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed the week of April 4-11. Condo was in a great location to Coligny Plaza and the beach. We walked almost everywhere when we weren't playing golf. The TV's and furniture were actually newer than expected and the condo has everything you need for a week away. Very affordable, and ground level unit makes things very convenient.

Family Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo that is perfect for a family beach vacation. The unit is on the ground floor and at the end of the complex, giving the feeling like you have a private backyard. It is nicely decorated, and well maintained. Xanadu is perfect for families with young children. The building and parking area are secure, and the pool is very close to the condo making it convenient for a quick swim. The owner was very helpful, provided an information list prior to our arrival, and answered all of my questions. South Forest Beach is convenient to lots of attractions. We will certainly stay here again if our travels take us back to Hilton Head.

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to the beach. I loved that the laundry was right outside the front door.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Hilton Head after spending a week in this condo. The first floor, end unit location is perfect for reaching the pool and enjoying the landscaping. The view of the lagoon and fountain from the living room is spectacular. The morning sun can be enjoyed on the patio off the master bedroom. The owners were prompt in replying to requests and mailing information. I would highly recommend this condomium for a relaxing stay with easy access to the bike path, the beach, restaurants and shopping. I rented three units for our family vacation, the other two were oceanfront. This unit at Xanadu was by far the nicest of the three.

Relaxing Getaway with Fun Nearby

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo with friends for a week in March. We flew into Savannah GA airport, which was easy to navigate and convenient. The place was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We spent a lot of our time at the beach across the street which wasn't crowded and we walked down the beach near Coligny Circle where there is a hotel with a beach bar and more people around. The circle has a grocery store, restaurants, and several beach shops with swimsuits, towels, and other beach gifts. We took day trips to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC which we loved. We also had great dinners at the Sea Shack, Mellow Mushroom, and Wild Wings nearby. Our favorite part of the trip was riding our bikes along the bike path that goes by the condo. We rode all over the island and saw tons of wildlife including baby alligators near a golf course!

Overall, we had a relaxing week here and always found something fun to do. During the winter we often think about how great it would be to be back at Hilton Head.

Favorite vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for two weeks in Sept/Oct. 2009 and 2010, and were pleasantly surprised at the comfort,spaciousness, hominess, cleanliness, privacy. As the days went by, we slipped into a comfort zone in and outside the condo, the pool, the beach, stores, restaurants. All well within reach. We spent some time every day at the beach. South Forest Beach is clean, with soft sand, and the long walks in the evening were a favorite. Walking paths are a plus. Definitely, Aunt Chiladas, for margaritas and wings on the patio. Friendly atmosphere. Spent many hours on the condo patio, relaxing, and watching and listening to the birds. The many butterflies are an extra treat. To my delight, one morning I went outside to find a Sand Hill Crane standing beside the moat. What a moment. I've seen many in FL, but didn't expect to see one right outside the door. We did feed the turtles - always had the camera ready. We've never rented a place that was so well stocked with just about everything you can imagine, and then some. The condo is only 45 minutes from Savannah, which was a great day-trip, and we enjoyed spending time at Harbour Towne. We feel 'settled in' as soon as we arrive, and sad when it's time to head back home. We've been to many vacation spots over many years, but we have decided this is our favorite and are looking forward to our next stay there.
