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!

Please Note:

1) As this is our second home, serious inquiries and responsible renters over the age of 25 only please. Thank you!

2) *All rates are subject to change at any time. Holidays and Special Events dates may have a premium charge over the listed rates (ie: The PGA Heritage Tournament week, Memorial Weekend, July 4th week, etc.) and a minimum stay.

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 Hilton Head Island

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.

Great Location!! Nice and Clean!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to HHI and enjoyed this condo. It was perfect for our family of 3 and there was room enough for us to have other couples visit for a few days at different times during our stay. Location is fantastic as it’s close to the beach and you can walk to Coligny and many other restaurants. Will visit again on our next trip to HHI!!

Property manager was response and very helpful. Highly recommend this condo.

Clean apartment with the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Fit our family of 4 very nicely. The apartment was clean, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the decor was very welcoming. We LOVED how close to everything the place was, and also enjoyed using the tennis courts in the complex. The owners were very accommodating, and their recommendations for things like rental bikes and restaurants were very helpful. Overall, we are very happy with our stay! Next time we go to HH, we will for sure look up this property! (Side note: if you have 2 littles like we do, make sure to bring a step-stool, as the toilets and sinks are quite high.)

Clean, comfortable and convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to regular, informative communications from Steve, when we arrived in the middle of the night with two kids in tow we were able to get into the unit as easily as if we had arrived home! The directions provided were accurate and complete and the condo was nice and cool when we walked in.

The first thing we noticed was that it was spotlessly clean (even the floors) which is highly unusual for a beach rental! In 10 years of traveling through VRBO, this was the cleanest rental home we've encountered. I only had to dip into my bag of cleaning supplies at the END of the weekend to clean up before we left! All 3 beds were surprisingly comfortable (we are ALL picky about our mattresses), the showers had excellent water pressure (perfect to get off all the sand!), the separation of the"adult" and"kids" bedroom offered much needed privacy and QUIET which made it more relaxing than a hotel by FAR!!

Coligny beach access paths are only a distance of about two city blocks (using pedestrian walkways) which our 4 & 8 yr olds both easily navigated during our stay (without complaints).

Our only regret is that we were only able to stay the weekend! It was the perfect"screening trip"- we were able to experience enough to realize that this will be our next family vacation spot!

**Note to families with small children ** Due to the age of the building, the railing (spindles) on the balcony are set wide enough for our 36lb 4 1/2 yr old to fit her entire body through. We had a heart attack when we saw her sticking her head through the bars and looking down to see how high up we were. Kids have more curiosity than fear which is a dangerous combo. Both kids were banned from the balcony for the remainder of the weekend!! (This was easy BC there is a child safety lock)
