Our home, 'The Jewel', is a bright, cheerful, warm, cosy, family retreat. It is an easy 3 block stroll to Coligny Plaza for shopping and dining. We are located 4 rows from the beach, approximately 175 steps. The gentle ocean breezes normally grace our veranda which is located off the main living area. Downstairs there is a 15' x 30' inground pool with a large shaded entertaining area for BBQing and relaxing. This area is almost always cooled by the pleasant ocean breezes. Also included here are private bathroom and shower facilities. The house features 4 bedrooms; 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs. Downstairs is the master with a king bed and private bath. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and adjacent bath. Upstairs one bedroom has a king bed and bunk bed (twin). THE BUNK BEDS ARE STRICTLY FOR CHILDREN 100 POUNDS OR LESS. The other bedroom has a queen bed and a double bed. These rooms are connected by a Jack and Jill bath. There is a TV in each bedroom and one in the main living area. The dining room, off the kitchen, seats 8 - 10 comfortably with additional seating at the bar. Many of our guest tell us they have most of their meals down by the pool where the BBQ grill is. There are table and chairs as well as other seating.

Our family gatherings at 'The Jewel' have always been rewarding and exciting experiences. It is a great place for families to get together and enjoy a fun, relaxing time. We have been blessed to have families that return each year. Our wish is for you to do this; taking with you many pleasant memories and the desire to return again to enjoy our home and the lowcountry lifestyle.

About Sylvia Tooma

I was born in the Lowcountry and raised nearby. My desire has been to live at the beach and on Hilton Head. To fulfill this desire my husband and I built our Jewel in 2000 and have lived here permanently since. During the summer we share our treasure with others while we visit family and friends.

Sylvia Tooma purchased this House in 2000

Why Sylvia Tooma chose North Forest Beach

Hilton Head is a great place to live and is also a family oriented resort area. Wonderful beaches, wildlife abounds, walking/biking trails, shopping and many great restaurants, quiet and peaceful. Being so close to the beach, bike path and Coligny Plaza our guest tell us we have the 'perfect location'.

What makes this House unique

Friends and family tell us that our home is very warm and inviting. They say they can relax and unwind while here. Several families return each year.

                                                        Best Family Vacation Ever!

                                                        Gary M.

                                                        We just returned from the best family vacation ever! This home was perfectly laid out, perfectly outfitted and perfectly located for us and our four adult children to enjoy. The kids kayaked and rode bikes, we all shopped, did a dolphin tour, played mini-golf and visited Harbour Town Lighthouse, but mostly the beach called to us and we went at least twice a day. We enjoyed the pool as well. We all felt so relaxed and comfortable.The owners were very helpful in giving us information we requested before our visit and leaving clear instructions for managing things while we were there. We could not have asked for a lovelier home. I would highly recommend this property. We would rent again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!!

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Welcome first time visitors to our beautiful Island. We are happy that our home helped to make your vacation and family time enjoyable and special. Thank you for treating our home with love and respect. If your travels ever bring you back to " our paradise" we would love to have you back. Thank you also for the kind review.

                                                        Perfect Beach Vacation!

                                                        NannieRaleigh, NC

                                                        This is a beautiful property! The house is VERY clean and comfortable. It was the only home our family has rented where all of the beds were so comfortable. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for a week at the beach! The pool was awesome...so much fun for our entire family. And while not beachfront, the house is even closer to the beach than we thought...only a very short walk. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing beach vacation!

                                                        Steps from the beach

                                                        The Weyand'sCrofton, MD

                                                        This home was absolutely perfect for our family vacation this summer! The location could not have been better, so close to Coligny and steps from the beach! It was extremely clean and obviously well taken care of by the owners. We will definitely rent this home again if we go back to Hilton Head next summer.

                                                        Very Homey !

                                                        Janice C.

                                                        Location - excellent - steps from beach, walk to town

                                                        House - beautiful - family owned, much cozier than some of the rental properties

                                                        Owners - very hospitably, honest and friendly

                                                        I will be recommending this place to any of my friends heading to Hilton Head. Would love to go back to the exact location !!

                                                        Almost heaven!


                                                        This was our families first visit to Hilton Head and it certainly will not be our last. The house we rented for the week was BEAUTIFUL and so very well maintained and clean. We loved every single thing about the house and the location. The beach was so close to the house. Eleven (5 were children) stayed together and we never felt crowded in. The owners went above the call of duty to make sure everything that was needed was there. The pool was wonderful!!! Can't wait until next year to spend another week at this beautiful place!!!

                                                        Super Clean & Well Maintained

                                                        Annette W.

                                                        This house was perfect for our 7 adults and 2 children. The house was exceptionally clean, well organized and maintained. All beds were comfortable. Lots of toys and beach items for use. The pool and underground porch was used all week and surrounded by beautiful landscaping. An easy walk to the beach and to Coligny Plaza. Will stay here again unless our family outgrows the home!
