About The Owner

Mick & Terri McDonough. I grew up in the S.C. and Mick grew up in South Florida. We both love the beach.After spending a Summer here during college break, I knew Hilton Head was a special place. When we decided to buy a vacation home,,there was no other place even considered. 15 years ago we decided to make the big move,,and now live here permanently. Come see our little bit of paradise!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose North Forest Beach

The lowcountry has a charm of its own. Unique in its beauty of a protected enviroment , with lush tropical live oaks, palmetto, palm and pine trees all the way to the ocean front.The beaches are absolutely beautiful. Hard packed and great for walking, biking, kiting and shell searching. Great golf courses and tennis courts. Many wonderful restaurants and shopping.

Lots to do!!

Great home in North Forest Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house in the North Forest Beach area! We took our five kids, age range from 12 to 4 yrs, down for the week. The bedroom layout was great with still space to spare. Quaint living room that we enjoyed. The kitchen was well-equipped and even had extra spices, coffee filters, etc. The pool is private, good size, with a nice hot tub that our kids enjoyed. There are lots of extra floats and beach chairs underneath the house which was a bonus. The walk to the beach is very easy and short (est less than 50 yards) with no major roads to have to cross. There Is a well defined path to the beach large enough to pull our beach trailer along. The beach never felt crowded even in late July. Great access to the bike paths from the house which is always a favorite HHI activity of ours. Fun, mostly shaded bike ride down to Coligny plaza just under a mile.

Owners Terri and Mick were great to work with from the initial booking. Highly recommend!!

Great location and amenities

  • 4 of 5

Great location and very clean. Very reasonably priced for location and size. Pool and spa were great to have on the windy beach days. As others have said in prior reviews, it could use a little updating (bathroom and living room couches) and a large skillet for cooking. We really enjoyed it and would definitely come back!

Lovely vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your beautiful home! Only 4 houses from the beach with a great bike path just across the street which leads to Coligny Plaza's shops and restaurants. The home was equipped with anything a renter might want or need and the 4 bedrooms were large and extremely comfortable! It was great to be able to watch a little tv in every bedroom to wind down at night and the bathrooms were spacious and very clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with anything needed to cook meals and is very pretty, as well. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and the home itself is lovely both inside and out. Plenty of towels and very thoughtfully appointed and stocked by the owners. Lastly, the Christmas decor was a charming surprise, as we arrived on the 27th. Very family friendly area, we can't rave enough about this home!
