About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath, across the street from the beach, shopping, and restaurants.

Thoroughly gutted and renovated in 2014, "L'Auvent" is an adults-only 1 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 story top-floor 1100 sq. ft. tree-top and lagoon view penthouse with W/D, Wi-Fi, 2 TV's, pool, tennis courts, and underground parking. It's across the street from the beach and across the street from Coligny Plaza shopping and restaurants. Upstairs, there are sliding Shoji doors that allow the king-sized bedroom to be completely closed off from the other upstairs living areas in case someone wants to "sleep in". There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs and one down. The entrance to world-renowned Sea Pines Plantation, where Harbor Town is located, is about a mile down the road.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We purchased this villa 25+ years ago 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.

Why the Owner Chose South Forest Beach, Hilton Head Island, SC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
