About the property

Two Story 2BR/2BA Penthouse @ Forest Beach Villas across the street from beach

Welcome to our lovely home by the beach at Forest Beach Villas on magnificent Hilton Head Island. We know you will truly enjoy our newly renovated spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse villa on the top floors of our building. This is a quiet, private end unit that does not get a lot of noise or passersby. You will find this particular villa to be genuinely warm, comfortable and inviting with all the luxuries and conveniences of home as we renovated and upgraded this to be our second home by the sea. We believe you will love it as much as we do! Some conveniences include wifi, cable with HBO premium channels, a PS3 console for family fun (with games available) and Bluray capability, a 60” flat screen TV in the living room with flat screens in each bedroom fitted with DVD players, speaker clocks with USB/Bluetooth/headphone connections, blackout curtains and several newly installed ceiling fans with remote controls. We also provide a selection of books for relaxing beach reading during your vacation.

The entire second level of our villa is where you will find the enormous and private master suite. The master bedroom has a restful king bed topped with luxurious Egyptian cottons sheets with a relaxing sitting area and cooling ceiling fan. There is a large walk-in closet equipped with iron and ironing board and a luggage stand. The master bathroom has a brand new granite top double vanity with sleek new faucets and accessories.

The bottom, entry level houses a newly open kitchen design including an extended breakfast bar and modern, but cozy bar stools. It also has new granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped for vacationers who opt to cook in. The kitchen flows into the dining area which seats six and a living room that boasts some brand new furniture including a queen sofabed that is incredibly comfortable. The guest bedroom is also located on the entry level and has two lovely twin beds and the full guest bathroom has also been recently renovated with a granite countertop vanity. There is a washer/dryer in the unit for your convenience.

For physical activity, the complex features free tennis courts and a large, private swimming pool where you can lounge in the sun or swim some laps. You can also walk or bike along Hilton Head Island’s world famous bike paths for a leisurely stroll and a great way to see the island. There are bike racks located in the shaded underground parking deck.

We are IDEALLY located on the south end of the island right by Coligny Plaza and Coligny Beach. You can just walk across the street to both the plaza and the beach where there are hundreds of restaurants, shops, clubs and bars with plenty of live entertainment including the famous Tiki Hut facing the ocean at the Holiday Inn. We are also conveniently located just outside of the famous Sea Pines Plantation, Hilton Head’s oldest, largest and loveliest plantation and host to the PGA’s annual Heritage Golf Tournament in the spring. When the weather is good, walk along the bridge over the pond in our complex, you will often find families of turtles swimming or sunning along the pond bank in the afternoon. .

You just can’t beat the convenience and location of our villa. With so many conveniences and activities around, you may find you will not need your car during your entire visit. So whether you are a family, couple or a small group of friends this unit is the perfect beach vacation getaway for you!

About Steve Ryan

We split time between Atlanta and Hilton Head Island since we have our Private Wealth and Financial Planning Practice in both locations so we work in both places.

I am a die hard Carolina girl, true blue- UNC Chapel Hill that is, while my husband is 3rd generation Duke. March Madness is an interesting time in our household. ;-)

Steve Ryan purchased this villa in 2014

Why Steve Ryan chose Island Areas

Rick grew up on Hilton Head Island and so it holds a special place in his heart. When we decided to buy something here, we looked all over the island for a fun, convenient location and found it at Forest Beach Villas. It's the perfect location and sequestered in a way that gives it a private feel even though it is in the midst of the action.

What makes this villa unique

Location! Location! Location! We can't describe how great it is to be able to literally walk across the street to so many fun and exciting places, including a fun-filled beach with tons to do. Also, since we renovated this property to be our second home, it has a warm and homey feel, not sterile or cheesy as you may find many other rentals. We take a lot of pride in sharing our home and strive only to have visitors enjoy an amazing vacation with all the conveniences of home.

very comfortable, clean, and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable condo with all the conveniences. Close to Coligny Circle, a couple of blocks to the beach, easy access to shops, restaurants, etc. Easy to get in and out of parking lot, very nice pool, beautiful setting among the trees. Huge, private master bedroom with big bath and walk-in closet. All appliances worked great. No bugs or dirt. Really enjoyed it!

Very good condo quite location, very close to the beach shops (a short 3-4 min walk)

  • 4 of 5

We travelled as a family (two adults and two kids 12, 14). This was out first trip to HH and we thoroughly enjoyed it despite having some cold weather. The condo unit is the top floor (4) at the end of the building so no neighbors above or to one side, a great quite location. The unit is as advertised, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is small but completely functional and is equipped with everything you could possibly need including good quality pots and pans and countless small appliances to make meals easy. We used the Ninja blender to great smoothies.

Rent bikes while your there, everything thing we did was by bicycle and it was great! The riding is very easy and great for the whole family young and old. We used forest beach surf and bike as was recommended by the oweners and it was a reasonable price ($95/ the week for four of us).

The property manager Steve, was very helpful and responsive, we had a small problem with the front door mechanism that Steve had taken care of straight away and followed up with us when it was fixed.

The only item I can be critical of is the hot water. This building uses a main domestic hot water boiler to serve the building, being on the top floor at the furtherst point from the boiler room means that you wait a long long time for hot water particularly in the morning before the system is being used by all tennant's. Once the shower is hot it can be inconsistent in temperature. Afternoon and evening showers seemed much better than earlier in the day.

The building has two elevators and multiple hotel style luggage dollies making the move in/out process very simple.

Over all we really enjoyed the place.

Great location, lots of amenities!

  • 4 of 5

This was an ideal location for families with kids...less than two blocks from the beach! Every day we walked to Coligny for beach fun, shops and restaurants. The villa was very spacious with laundry inside, which was a big plus. Nice kitchen, living rooms, and baths. Great pool, tennis courts, and beautiful grounds!!

Minor complaints: no toilet paper anywhere, no instructions for TV remotes, no screen on window upstairs, and it could have been communicated to us the elevator closest to villa was going to be out for a couple of days when we arrived. I don't think it was the owner's fault, as VRBO was very rude on the phone when I brought up the elevator issue. Owner was very gracious and polite about these few issues, and we appreciated that.

Perfect place/awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this condo that is so close to the beach and all the amenities that Coligny Plaza, and Hilton Head have to offer. Our stay there was somewhat related to business, so my mother-in-law and our 2 young children were the ones that enjoyed the place the most. It was so easy for them to take the stroller down to the beach, or grab a bite to eat at one of the little restaurants. The kitchen in the condo had absolutely everything we could have ever wanted, even though we ended up not cooking at all just because we were constantly on the go. The family room is so relaxing, couches are very comfy. The upstairs master bedroom is very nice, and a big plus for us was the walk-in closet. We took the recommendation of a previous reviewer and put the baby's pack and play in the closet, so with that and the sound machine, the baby slept in every morning past 8:30! We definitely recommend this place to others, especially people with young children, and we will be recommending this condo to our friends that will be coming to visit the island in the future. Thanks for a great place to stay!

Great location, well equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

Had a three night stay in this beautiful Forest Beach condo. The location is ideal - one block from Coligny Circle, tons of restaurants and a grocery store with 5-10 minute drive and just up the road from Sea Pines.Plantation. The condo itself is not in the best location within the complex but it is top floor for those who value good views. The condo is very well appointed and furnished - everything we needed including a very well stocked kitchen and lots of supplies that previous quests and the owners left behind. It is not a huge condo (a lot of the sq footage is in a very large master bedroom and not the living areas) so I would not recommend for large families - but it was perfect for us.
