There is a bedroom with two twin beds and attached bath with walk-in shower and double shower heads off the living area. Kitchen is very well stocked and there is dining table seating for 10+.

On the first floor level there is a den with three rattan couches and television, a bunk bed room with four beds, bath with tub and shower, utility room and another bedroom with twin beds and attached bath with walk in shower. There are puzzles galore, games and books for family time. .

Coligny Plaza, the original shopping area of Hilton Head is a five-minute walk, and has restaurants, groceries, taverns, cinema, outdoor kids events in season and unique shops. The beach is beautiful and this part of the beach is considerably less crowded even in High season because there is no parking allowed on the streets of North Forest Beach.

About The Owner

The two families who own this house live in Cincinnati, Ohio and have been coming to Hilton Head since 1975 when there was only one fast food restaurant and most of the stores closed for the winter. We loved the area and looked at houses every year, with just about every realtor on the island until we finally could afford this home. Our collective 8 kids and now 14 grand kids think there is no place better and neither do their parents.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose North Forest Beach

We loved the area and the fact that it is not a gated community. The beach is steps away, the water is usually warm with frequent days of great surf, tide pools with wonderful creatures and a walk away to almost anything one might need. There is even a golf course a few blocks away.

What makes this house unique

Wonderful family time, great girls' and mens' only weekends with friends and the best place in the world to be stuck in bad weather.... which is RARE!!!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is a giant slice of heaven. There is no other way to describe it! We enjoyed Marley's Happy Hour, the Electric Planet and the Sea Shack.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better house to spend our week in Hilton Head in. 7 Curlew had everything: amazing location just a few minute's walk to the beach and town, well-stocked kitchen, amazing roof-top deck, huge outdoor shower, and, of course, clean bathrooms and bedrooms. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a great house at an affordable price! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Great place to stay - perfect location

  • 4 of 5

What a great location! Literally a one or two minute walk to the beach. Just a short walk to the restaurants and shops near Coligny Circle. We had 7 people (5 were college age) and the design does allow people to be together as a big group or find a niche to get away. It is a very comfortable house in which we felt very at-home. If we go back as a family, it will definitely be the first location we check into.

Love your beach house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year staying at 7 Curlew, we just love it. Your beach house was perfect for our family and we like the closeness to everything. We spent most of our time on the beautiful beach which is just steps away. The house was ready for our arrival, clean, tidy and we had everything we needed especially in the kitchen area. Thank you for letting us use your beach house and we look forward to next summer.

Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to HHI for several years to visit with a grandson, that just this year graduated from Bluffton High.This was the first stay at Curlew and would definately return to this house. It is the perfect location and has everthing you need for your beach stay. The rooftop deck is so fantastic, and the house is so personalized by the owners, made us feel like we are friends of thiers. They were very accomadating and easy to work with.I hated to leave!!!!

Great value for this location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Sunday night in time to go to the beach. This was the warmest day at the beach. Even with the cool weather, the sun helped warm it up. We found sand dollars and star fish during low tide. Great for the kids to see low and high tide. The tide clock in the house was awesome! We walked to the Coligny plaza daily and then hit the beach. Beach close enough to walk back when we forgot things! Eating recommendations were right on, we loved the restaurants! Flew kites, built sand castles, watched the ships in the distance, who could ask for more? This was a great vacation and we will return!

Extremely happy with this house

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with our choice to stay at this house. It was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The location was awesome, right across from the beach and walking distance to Coligny Plaza. It suited our needs perfectly, travelling with 4 adults and 3 small children. Very pleasant owner was very helpful and accurate with her information. We had a great time during our week there and we can't wait to go again next year!
