About Wayne Booker

They have been married for 45 years and have 4 sons and wonderful daughter-in-laws who have given them 7 beautiful grandchildren. Wayne retired from the Naval Reserve with the rank of Commander after 22 years of service. Wayne works in the M & A business and is a licensed commercial real estate agent. He also teaches small business management at Franklin University. Mary Jo actively manages some of the grandchildren during the week and teaches religious education in the evenings.

Wayne Booker purchased this house in 1998

Why Wayne Booker chose North Forest Beach

We have been going to Hilton Head since 1984 and love the island. We grew up going to the Jersey Shore, but find so many more amenities on the island. Our house is in a very private residential area, so our beaches are never crowded. We are just a few steps from the beach.

What makes this house unique

While a ranch house doesn't look very 'beachy' on the outside (it does on the inside), it is very nice to not carry suitcases and groceries up several flights of steps. This makes it especially nice for seniors and parents with young children. Our yard is very private, and has a great mix of sun and shade at all parts of the day. It is sometimes hard to leave your nice chair around the pool and go to the beach (even thought it is very close).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have been coming to HHI for many years and have stayed in many different places - but I think we have finally discovered our favorite place/HERE! We love your house, the location, and the pool. This was probably the coolest weather we have had here in years, so we were thankful for the heated pool. Hope to come back again in the future.

The house was everything we needed and more!

This was the perfect house for our growing family. We had plenty of room, the location was perfect, and the pool was wonderful!

Owner's Response: Thanks, April for writing such a nice review. We love our home and spend a couple of months there every year and try to make it as nice as possible for both my family and our guests. If there is ever a problem, we feel personally embarrassed and try to make it right immediately. After all, it is our home too!

Great place to just relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

A great property. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for just relaxing. Plus, we like to cook in the evening, and the kitchen and dinning room, open to the living room, was very good for cooking and eating. The two master bedrooms were spacious. I loved the private backyard, with the indoor heated pool and spacious area to just lounge around, have a drink, take a nap, read a book. TV, DVD and video games, too! :-) Five adults vacationed here and found it quite nice. It is just a stones throw away from the beach, and by car there are sooooo many restaurants nearby. I would recommend this place to my family and friends!

Owner's Response: This is pretty typical of the response that we get from the surveys that are returned by every guest when they send back their emergency key. Sometimes they report problems to us that we are unaware of, and we view that as a positive because we know where to improve. One guest compained that the mattresses were hard. We really had no idea because we only sleep in one bedroom when we visit. But sure enough, he was right and we replaced all the mattresses and box springs (5) except for the comfy one which we had always used. We respond promptly to all problems and have trusted vendors to take care of them. We take it personally if a guest is unhappy, because this is our home, not a motel room.

Great house for the price

  • 5 of 5

The house is great and you can’t ask for a better location to the beach and it is in walking distance to Coligny Plaza. Which we did multiple times during our stay. The house has a great layout and multiple seating areas inside and out. We enjoyed breakfast on the screened porch every morning. Kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are very comfortable. We would definitely rent this home again, the next time we come to HHI without our dogs.

Good house, good amenities in great location

  • 4 of 5

Clean house, very homely, great layout with good amenities. Kids loved the pool. House could be updated in some areas (e.g., A/C a little spotty, kettle leaked). Amazing location. Very happy overall and would recommend.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate feedback from our guests and have already called our HVAC contractor to get a checkup. The A/C is only a year old. Not really sure about the problem with the kettle, but our on site manager will check it out. If our guest had given us a call, we would have addressed the issues immediately.

Great beach house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

House had everything we needed. Private backyard, pool, beach, cooking and grilling tools, plenty of towels, and clean. Seriously close to the beach. We rented bikes per Wayne's recommendation and they were really reasonably priced. We biked around the island and to Coligny Circle a couple of times. Highly recommend!

Visit Savannah, GA, a beautiful city with terrific walking tours and great restaurants on the waterfront. Home of Paula Deen of the Food Channel. One hour drive thru wonderful low country roads.

Also visit Charleston, SC, one of the most charming cities in the world. Site of Fort Sumter and many historic homes. It is about 2.5 hours north, but still close enough for a day trip.

Beaufort, SC is about 1 hour north and it has many of the same types of historical homes. It is the location for a number of very popular movies.
