About the owner: I have been vacationing on Hilton Head Island since I was a child (in the '60s) when Hilton Head was in the infant stages of becoming a popular vacation spot. The bridge onto the island was an old swing bridge until it was replaced with a four lane bridge when I was in college. A favorite place on the island when I was a little girl is still here today- Coligny Plaza, which opened in 1956. Another is Harbor Town which still has some of the same shops, red rocking chairs, and the playground and treehouse. After renting a villa each summer for a week or two, in 1989 my parents bought this villa at Forest Gardens. My children have grown up coming to Hilton Head and staying in this villa each summer. Once my parents retired, they spent about one third of their time down here. My father died in 2002 and in January this year my mother died. We would like to be able to keep our Hilton Head home for our family and to do that we have decided to rent it to help with the expenses. So, our villa was not purchased and furnished with profit in mind, but to be loved and enjoyed by our family and friends. It is full of family 'treasures' that are priceless to us. They may hold little monetary value, but to us their value is with the memories they represent. So, if you stay here, you are brought into our family and you will be surrounded by symbols of our memories while you are creating your own memories. Please take care of our treasures, just like you would your own. Each room contains items that were handmade by one of my parents, myself, or my children. My father came to America from Sweden in the 50s. In the 50's in Sweden, most families had a summer home. Although Swedish summer homes were not condos, did not have indoor plumbing, and were usually painted red, this is still our 'sommarstuga.' (summer house) I hope that you like our American, Hilton Head version of a stuga and enjoy our home, and the island, just as my parents and the rest of my family have.
Why the Owner Chose South Forest Beach, Hilton Head Island, SC, USA:
We chose Forest Gardens in the Forest Beach area of Hilton Head because we always loved this part of the island. Forest Beach is one of the oldest neighborhoods on the island and is one of the few neighborhoods that is not gated. Coligny Plaza (less than a mile from our villa) is the center of Forest Beach and was home to the first grocery store on the island and is still considered Hilton Head Island's downtown! It has over 60 shops and restaurants and is only steps from the beach. Although Coligny is larger than it was when I was a child, many of the stores and even the statues in the ponds are the same ones that were there 40 years ago! The ocean gate to Sea Pines is exactly a mile from our villa in the other direction. Although you have to pay a gate fee ($5, but it may have just gone up to $6), it is worth it to visit Harbor Town, sit in the red rocking chairs, see the yachts, climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse, walk out on the pier, or just people watch. While in Sea Pines, you should stop by South Beach Marina (complete with shops, restaurants, and access to lots of water activities). It is on the southern most tip of Hilton Head and is a fun place to visit. That is where the Original Salty Dog T shirt store is located! The Coligny Beach area has the prettiest beaches on Hilton head! There is so much to do and see on Hilton Head and South Forest Beach has the best of all that Hilton Head has to offer! Yes, our villa is indeed close to the beach, restaurants, shopping, and fun.
