About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

This beautiful beach house offers the kind of casual atmosphere that invites relaxation - a true haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Your place at the beach, this fifth row, five bedroom, four bath home provides a private heated pool just 150 yards from the best beach on Hilton Head, as featured in Hilton Head magazine, without crossing any streets! It is minutes away from golf, tennis, shopping, and restaurants on the adjacent bike path - yet its location on a sandy street in South Forest Beach affords peace and quiet.

Large, light-filled rooms, decorated in a beachy theme with hardwood floors and vibrant color schemes, provide a warm and inviting atmosphere conducive to family and friendship. Accommodating up to sixteen in five bedrooms, it is perfect for two or three families vacationing together, two foursomes, or even a tennis team. Screened porches, upper and lower living areas, outdoor dining, and pool deck seating areas provide an opportunity to gather everyone or escape for a little time alone or in small groups - a must when vacationing with family or friends.

The Main Level includes a screened outdoor lounge and dining area (seating 16)with spiral stairs to the pool area, eat-in kitchen/dining area, office area, living room with 40 inch LCD TV, VCR, DVD and stereo with CD changer, dining room, master suite with private bath and king-size bed, second bedroom with two double beds, and shared full bath.

The Pool Level provides outdoor seating around the pool and on the front porch, outdoor hot/cold shower with changing room, second living room with 40 inch TV/VCR/DVD, second master suite with private bath and queen-size bed, fourth bedroom with two double beds, fifth bedroom with four bunks, and a shared full bath.

Built in 2002, this Thomas Hiatt design was constructed by Westwind Construction. Interior design is by Beach Buddies Design Studio of Atlanta, Georgia. Landscape design is by Site Solutions, also of Atlanta.

Whether your interests take you to the beach, the golf course (38 courses on the island), tennis (Van de Meer Tennis Center nearby), biking (miles of adjacent bike paths), shopping (Coligny Plaza minutes away by bike) or just relaxing, you are bound to call this your place at the beach.

Perfectly located. Well appointed and maintained

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal. 2 minute walk to the beach thru a beautiful live oak grove. Short bike ride on bike paths to nearby shopping/dining/ice cream. This house was big enough for our extended family. The pool and outside shower were two of our favorite features. Really hated to leave. would definitely stay here again. Owner was very easy to work with.

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the house. We loved the location because it was convienent to the beach, and the older kids could ride their bikes up to Coligny. The were ample bedrooms for our two families, and more than enough room in the house overall. The screened in porch was a favorite for breakfast and dinners. We plan on coming back!

GREAT porch!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three families stayed at Bayberry for Spring Break, Saturday April 2-Thursday 8th. The beds were very comfortable and came to realize that they also had 2 hide-a-beds!! The layout of the house was perfect. The BEST feature of the house was the screened porch!! It was very large and sat 15 of us very comfortably. The side of the house is on the main road and you hear traffic but it was not a big deal. The pool was perfect size but we didn't pay the $100/day 4 day minimum to heat the pool so it didn't get much use. The beach was a quick few minutes away and was nice walk thru the "woods." You HAVE to rent or bring your bikes!! The beach is great to ride on and there was trails across the road that went right into Caligny Square (main part of town). We will probably rent again as it suited our vacation very well. John was great with questions and responded quickly to anything we needed. Thanks for making SB a relaxing and fun family get away!!

Great house led to a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Me and a group of 14 other friends stayed here for a beach vacation down in Hilton Head. We were looking for something on the beach, but away from college parties and general debauchery. We found it here in Hilton Head, and this house was a great place to stay. When we got there, the pool was dirty with leaves, but when we woke up our second day, it had been cleaned completely, and was ready for use. That said, the pool was barely touched as we were so close to the beach, and we had great weather almost our entire stay. We were also within walking distance of a few restaurants and other places in the area, and very short drives to everything else we wanted to do on the island. Our only complaint with the house was that the grill was very dirty, and frankly unusable. That said, everything else in terms of cooking was working perfectly, and allowed us to have a good time. If you're looking for a nice place in Hilton Head for a large group, right by the beach, this is the house you want.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Just as an FYI, the pool is cleaned twice weekly during the season so there is always a chance of leaves between the cleanings. We have replaced the BBQ grill.

Nice, but could use some sprucing up.

  • 4 of 5

It would help to have a notebook with information of the area, use of equipment (fans, lights, TV, etc.) and info about departure instructions. The house was well equipped with furniture, kitchen utensils, linens etc. Could have used some light blankets. There were 12 adults and all seemed comfortable.
