Turtle Pool Beach House - Renovated & Pet Friendly – Fenced Back Yard!

This mid-island three bedroom, two bath home is tastefully decorated for casual island living. Enjoy the best back yard in Folly Field. This spacious third-acre lot is fenced with a private salt water pool. To make this even better, there is a cabana with new bar stools, granite counter with convenience sink, refrigerator, TV, ceiling fan and outdoor gas grill. The backyard also boasts a Fire-Pit, Bocce court, new furniture and the backyard has a new landscape and design. Imagine all of this plus you are just a 3-minute walk to the Folly Field beach which is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on Hilton Head Island.

Bet you can’t wait to experience the peaceful fenced back yard. Magnolia trees keep you smiling and in “Southern” vacation mode! The “turtle pool” is the most unique pool on Hilton Head Island. It is large, very dramatic and sure to be the center of attention for adults and children alike. The head of the “turtle” features a sitting area with underwater benches and bubbling jets. The large patio pool surround has been enhanced with pavers, new lounge chairs, dining table with umbrella, chairs and side chairs. The ground level covered deck is adjacent and provides shade when desired. There is an outdoor shower to refresh as you return from the beach or leave the pool. Put this all together and you have the perfect place to enjoy a cold drink, family time and outdoor entertaining. Sit back and relax or splash around in your private “turtle-shaped” pool.

You feel the warmth and comfort from the moment you enter the home. You will smile at the gorgeous bead board cathedral ceiling with beams and the foyer’s artistic lighting which brings you to the fabulous living area. You can relax while reading or watching the HD flat screen TV which is mounted over the fireplace for easy viewing while sitting on the new couch and loveseat set-up in an L-formation for comfort and coziness nestled around an expansive granite cocktail table or the additional comfy chair. Spedtrum provides the Cable TV & Password-Protected Wireless Internet. There is also a separate DVD and Blue Ray player for your convenience.

The living area extends to a large dining area with seating for six and connects with the Carolina Room overlooking the back yard, pool and cabana. There is also a table for your computer/tablet so you can stay connected while still enjoying the peaceful views and atmosphere.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has all you need including a kitchen table for six. New stainless steel appliances plus new washer which uses hi-efficiency detergent and new dryer were the first steps in updating the kitchen along with removing the wallpaper. Additional improvements to kitchen will be taking place this winter too. This vacation home you love, will continue to get better and better!

The foyer’s artistic lighting which makes everyone smile is also in the hallway as you proceed to the bedrooms.

The master suite includes a king bed, private walk-in shower, separate area with a double sink vanity, large mirror and walk-in closet. This room also has the beautiful bead board ceiling, new ceiling fan & light, new furniture and mattress plus plenty of dresser space. There is also a flat screen cable TV, phone, iron and ironing board and alarm clock. Even better, from the master you can access the covered porch with new couch.

The second bedroom has a new king bed and mattress plus double closet. The third bedroom has two twin beds with new mattresses. Both bedrooms have new bead board ceilings, flat screen cable TVs, alarm clocks, ceiling fans with lights and ample dresser space. These bedrooms are adjacent to the second bath that will be renovated this winter to add a tub and shower instead of just a shower. There is also a large vanity and mirror.

Relax Carolina style spending time on home’s open back porch and also the covered porch overlooking the large fenced backyard and pool. Get comfy, stretch out your legs and relax or doze-off!

With all the rooms on one level the downstairs of the home provides a large covered area for keeping bikes, beach and recreational items protected from the sun. Save luggage space as we provide beach chairs to help you enjoy a great beach vacation. This year we will also be providing beach towels so you don't have to pack them - We just ask you wash and dry them before you leave so they will be ready for the next guests. The downstairs also features a great outdoor shower to refresh as you return from the beach.

The beach is “out the front door” then turn right on Moonshell and then turn left on Ghost Crab and you see the opening in the fence (a.k.a. the beach path). The walk takes 2-3 minutes to the beach path and then it is just walking the dunes to the beach. This is one of the most beautiful beaches on Hilton Head Island.

Folly Field is Mid-Island located between Palmetto Dunes Resort and Port Royal Plantation. Moonshell Road is a quiet residential area that gives you access to the Atlantic Ocean Beach from a beach path instead of a large public beach access point. This provides you with a more quiet, less congested area of the beach.

Mid-Island is great because it is close to everything – restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, Art Center productions, Atlantic Ocean beaches, water sports, golf courses, bike paths for the island, island festivals and family entertainment.

Chaplin Park is nearby, and offers free tennis (first come, first serve), bike trails, basketball courts, fields and a playground. There is no charge for using the facilities.

What can we say?

This is the perfect home for family and friends to make memories to cherish…

…the perfect place to relax on those hot summer days and enjoy a great island vacation.

That is what a Hilton Head Island beach house is all about.

May your time be filled with

relaxing sunrises and sunsets,

cool drinks, laughs, smiles

and of course…

sand between your toes.

Hoping you can join us!

About Caroline Lotti

My name is Caroline. I live on Hilton Head Island and am the Property Manager for this fabulous beach house. The owner of this property specifically selected the Folly Field area because it is quiet, family friendly and its close proximity to the ocean. The relaxing atmosphere of the sound of the waves makes this truly a wonderful place to unwind and just enjoy life!

I got to know the owner when she decided to purchase this home for her family. I was so excited when she asked me to continue managing the rentals!

When you take the 3-minute walk to the beach you’ll find it is practically a private beach – NEVER crowded even at the busiest times of the year.

We hope that you love it just as much as we do.

Caroline Lotti purchased this house in 2015

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Turtle Pool Beach House. It is a lovely home. After driving for 12 hours it was so nice to finally arrive and find a welcoming note from you with treats for us and the dog. The house is clean, comfortable, roomy and decorated so tastefully. We enjoyed the beach (Shower after the beach was great!), the pool, the sunroom, reading on the decks, the barbeque and eating some meals out in the yard. Bike riding was great. Your house was perfect from our family vacation!

I have stayed at this home many times. We love it. Very comfortable and the pool is wonderful. However as I am getting older I think a hand rail at the steps of the pool would assist in getting in and out safely.

Overall Great! Very lose to beach and great pool.

  • 5 of 5

Caroline was great to work with, she got back to us very quickly. She also helped send information on bike rentals and any other information that we needed regarding our stay at Hilton Head.

Overall the house was perfect for what we needed. This is not a fancy house with the most up to date counter tops, but we wanted to be outside enjoying the beach and pool. The location to the beach and the private pool for little kids was perfect. We had 2 couples each with a small child. The kids loved playing in the pool, and the walk to the beach was no more than 2 mins. The part of the because that the "trail" comes out on is not crowded at all. You can bring your own shade umbrella or pop up tent on the beach vs. renting. I cannot say enough how easy Caroline made booking this and getting all information to both couples for us. We did not want our stay to end.

Awesome Week at the Turtle

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week at the Turtle Pool House. First of all Caroline could not have been better to work with - very friendly and very responsive to our questions. The five star ratings on this property are not an exaggeration. The house was comfortable and very clean and the location (mid-island) is close to everything. The pictures on the site are very accurate. This is what a beach house should be and has everything to make for a very relaxing vacation. The short walk to the beach is actually very, very short and I would not consider it a walk at all - you are basically steps from the path. The path leads to a great spot on the beach that is uncrowded and you have plenty of space to do whatever you want. The backyard is awesome and couldn't imagine needing anything more, the covered porch, rocking chairs, patio, yard for the dogs, comfortable seating, outdoor shower, great pool and the cabana with bar and TV is a nice extra touch. We used it all. Nothing better than cooling off in the pool after the beach before heading to the links. As I told Caroline - you could put this backyard on the back of a tent and I would have been happy. This was our 7th trip to HHI and as another said, this was our favorite property and we all were not ready to leave. Hope to back soon. I am sure anyone renting this property will find it very enjoyable.

Wonderful Family & Pet Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two 9 month old twin sons and two dogs. We had such a great time. The dogs loved the spacious, securely fenced yard and my husband and I spent a lot of time in the cabana grilling out and watching TV! The house is very clean, has attractive furnishings and a fully equipped kitchen. We also really enjoyed spending our mornings in the sunroom with our little boys.

We felt the location was convenient to the many attractions the island has to offer, and additionally, the beach was a very easy walk from the house, and the biking trails were only a quick ride away.

We will definitely remember this vacation for a long time to come! Caroline, the property manager, is very hospitable and ensures that all is in order for your stay. Thank you for providing this lovely home.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about the house, location...and of course Caroline! We rented this house for a relaxing girls weekend, and it was just what we needed! Being in nursing school is stressful and we just wanted to go some place nice & re-group before our Fall semester started back. This was just what the Dr. ordered! The house is absolutely darling- spacious, well decorated & equipped with everything we needed. It was funny b/c when we got there Saturday night the FIRST thing we wanted to do was make some fruity frozen drinks and the blender didn't work! We were so bummed....called Caroline right away and she had us a new blender in 30 minutes!! That is what I call first class service!! Having the private pool was definitely an added bonus, and the walk to the beach couldn't have been any easier or close. I told Caroline that I wished I could buy this house from the owners b/c I loved it that much. I can't wait to come back to this house once I graduate & have more time to stay! Thank you again Caroline for your hospitality!
