We purchased this villa in 1990 as "youngsters" so that we could eventually have a second home or primary residence on Hilton Head. Since this particular development has always been roughly half full-time residents and half second home / vacation rental, we chose to rent our unit long-term for the first 23+ years until the last resident, who had lived there 13 years, moved away. We changed our approach at that point and went with a complete renovation -- tearing down all non-structural walls, taking down all sheet-rock, etc. -- to fully modernize and move to short or mid-term rental to couples or pairs of golfers (or kayakers, or...) who want a "residential - like" villa. We still live many hours away but thoroughly enjoy the time we get to spend here. We hope you will, too.

Why Van chose South Forest Beach
Hilton Head Island was and is one of the most desirable locations to vacation or live in the world. The climate, which we describe as "southeastern beach", is particularly agreeable in the fall through spring and "best for hot-weather lovers" in the summer. This particular villa is located across the street from the beach and from the shopping and restaurants of Coligny Plaza, yet it's a quiet top-floor penthouse with a beautiful tree-top and lagoon view. It's a great fit for us. We hope it's also great for you.
What makes this Villa unique
Hilton Head Island's 10+ miles of wide white-sand beach is among the best for walking or biking that we've experienced in our travels around the world. Sea kayaking on the open ocean or on the protected sound with the dolphins is a wonderful experience. Nearby Daufuskie Island and Savannah offer unique southern experiences that we thoroughly love.

As always, our stay was perfect. We couldn’t ask for a better get away. It’s spotless clean, fully stocked and super convenient to everything we enjoy. I would highly recommend this villa.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay! No problems at all!! The condo was very nice and in a great location!!! We did a lot of walking and bicycling. We will definitely be staying here again!!!
Elegant Villa near the beach
Well appointed and stylish 2 story villa. Serene location. Close to the beach. We had a very enjoyable stay.
Beautiful, quiet, will be back!
Gorgeous condo that was absolutely perfect for our weekend getaway to house hunt in HHI. Van was incredibly helpful and responsive.
This condo also served as a wonderful inspiration for our pending condo purchase in HHI. If we need to come back during our new vacation home quest, prior to closing, we will definitely stay here again! Additionally, when we do purchase our vacation home, there is a high probability that we will have family gatherings in HHI, and our home may not accomodate everyone. We would highly recommend this place to any family members that we were unable to personally accommodate.
You will not be sorry for booking this fabulous villa!
We were very happy with our short stay at this quiet, clean, very nicely remodeled and coveniently located retreat. We would and will return when possible. Thanks to the owners who were great to work with.
Great Time In A Perfect Villa
We've been going to Hilton Head for 20+ years, but always with our family. We've stayed in a number of places, but this time we needed something smaller as it was just the two of us traveling. We've also booked in other areas of the country through VRBO. I have to say that of all the places we've stayed, this ranks right up there at the top. The villa was modern, nicely decorated, and most importantly, very clean. The upstairs living area is so comfortable and has such a great view, we spent practically all our time up there. The villa had all the amenities we could want, and the added advantage that since we were traveling in October, we practically had the pool to ourselves. It's in a great location, just past Coligny Circle and near the Sea Pines plantation. Van was great to work with and made planning our trip very easy.
