About Rick Matarrese
My wife and I frequently visited Hilton Head throughout the years and always had a special fondness for this area. We were thrilled to be able to start this venture in 2015. An endeavor where we are able to share a dream beach condo with our guests. We have always loved to travel and have stayed at so many fine places over the years. But we have also had the misfortune of staying at some that were very disappointing at best. We understand the importance of vacation time and just how easily that precious time can be spoiled by the frustration of accommodations that do not meet your expectations. That is something we don’t ever want our guests to feel. It is our goal to maintain our unit to a level that will provide 5 star ratings and not just assure that our guests are satisfied, but that they are thoroughly thrilled. We want guests that come back year after year and we hope you will become one of them.
Rick Matarrese purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Rick Matarrese chose South Forest Beach
We take great pride in our unit 309 Ocean Dunes and provide an ambiance that is clean and fresh and new, yet calm and soothing. And not so modern or cold that it looses the special character, charm and comfort you expect in a Beach Home. When you are at the beach you want to feel like you are at the beach. We want our unit to convey a spirit of casual relaxation, whimsy and fun, while still maintaining a level of impeccable neatness and cleanliness that we desire when staying there. And since we do stay there often, we conduct frequent and regular personal inspections to assure that the unit is not just surface clean, but deep cleaned and that even the smallest imperfections or maintenance issues, that may have gone unnoticed, are properly corrected. There are a lot of vacation properties on Hilton Head. We want ours to stand out amongst all of them.
What makes this Condo unique
"Location, Location, Location" is what they say in real estate and here at 309 Ocean dunes, that is what you get! This ocean front resort is ideally situated far enough away from Coligny Circle so that you cannot see or even hear the hustle and bustle of the people and traffic, yet close enough to walk to it (or bike to it with one of bikes provided with the unit). You get the best of both with the peaceful tranquility of unbelievable ocean views and the sound of rolling ocean waves at home coupled with the excitement and action of endless dining, shopping and casual drinking just down the street. Free access to the health club supplements that with an indoor pool just a few blocks away. And if you like Tennis there is a tennis center just short stroll down the road. Being on the 3rd floor provides amazing ocean views that you simply cannot get at lower levels along with beautiful starry nights right off your ocean front balcony Individual air units and thermostats for each room assures that everyone can live in the comfort they desire. And if need a little TV chill time there is a flat screen TV in every room with Cable and Roku TV. A fully updated kitchen means glide free drawers, modern stainless steel appliances and unblemished counter tops. A full size dining table provides space for everyone at dinner time. Hardwood living area floors provide a soft comfortable look of elegance while the tiled bathrooms assure clean and sterile bathing experience. Sitting on the balcony the well cushioned furniture will keep you comfortable, the natural ocean breeze to keep you cool, and the endless view will keep you mesmerized, while you sip your Mint Julep watching the ocean waves roll in and the ships roll by.

5 stars. Great accomodations. Fantastic views.
We had a wonderful stay. Clean, great beds. Everything we needed. Fantastic view for breakfast on the deck.
Oceanfront, quaint and perfect for our getaway!
Wonderful location and near everything you need. The property is very clean and surprisingly quiet with the Hilton next door doing construction. Comfy beds and enjoyed the ability to use our Netflix and Hulu. Loved exploring the island and biking the beach to Sea Pines. Each dining experience we had was excellent. Aunt Chilidas was fantastic and close to the condo. The Old Oyster House was exceptional as well but a little drive...totally worth it. Relaxing time of year to be here in the off season yet still warm enough to enjoy the beach a few days. We will definitely be back!! Already looking at options for next fall.
Perfect stay for my wife and I.
This has to be one of the best balcony views at HHI. The unit is updated and just the perfect size. It is hard to think of staying anywhere else on the island.
Beautiful view and close to town and a very nice comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bath with full kitchen
Thank you for the beautiful place to stay. Was close to town and the ocean view is breath taking.
Really nice condo.
Condo is very well appointed & clean. Beautiful ocean view. Love sitting on the balcony watching the waves roll in. Unfortunately, there was a slight sulfurous odor from either water or drains. Also condo is advertised with 2 bikes. When we asked at the management office we were told none of the units come with bikes.
We thank you for taking the time to provide your review and for the positive comments.. We are very disapointed that our local management company gave you misinformation regarding the bikes. This is certaunly unacceptable. It is one reason we provide our home and cell phone numbers (along with bike instructions) in the general welcome letter that we email to you immediatly after you make the reservation and also provide in the tabletop information binder. In our letter, we urge you call us directly with any issues immediately, so that we can resolve such issues quickly and personally and avoid any dissatisfaction. We understand mistakes can happen, and damages or repair needs can come up anytime, and we want everyones stay to be perfect. We regret that your stay was not. VTHHI manages hundreds of units at dozens of properties and mine is the only unit that offers bikes. It is one of the many things we do to set us apart from the others. Apparently, a new staff member was not aware of it. Everyone has now been updated, so this should not happen again.
I believe the source of the aroma was the AC units. Due to the unit being booked all summer and early fall, our quarterly maintenance visit was delayed. One item we cover (among dozens of other things) is to clean the AC filter. A clogged filter blocks airflow and causes a sulfurous aroma. To make things worse the recent construction next door generated much more than the usual amount of dust to block the filters. As coincidence would have it, I was down there immediately after your stay to perform the quarterly maintenance and cleaned those filters and I did not experience any odors during my stay. I wish we had been able to make a little sooner, but if we had only been called, we could have had the local management company clean those filters immediately, so that you would not have had those odors during your entire stay.
We are very pleased to know that aside from these two problems, you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will come back again give us a chance to earn 5 stars from you the next time around.
We didn't want to leave!!!
This condo was absolutely gorgeous!!! Loved the condo and LOVED the VIEW!!! My family and I will definitely be staying here again!!! Thank you very much!!!!
Ocean Dunes Villas is the perfect blend of serenity and convenience. It is within walking distance of dozens of shops and restaurants at Coligny Circle as well as the VanDerMeer Tennis and Spinnaker Health and Fitness centers. Yet it is located on a small two lane road with little traffic and far enough off that road to provide complete quite. Bike paths provide an inviting environment of cyclists and strict restrictions on commercial lighting provide amazing starlit evenings. Next door, and just a few steps from our building, is the Hilton Ocean Oaks Resort where you can stop at the ocean & pool front bar grill for a drink or a snack. On the other side is the Marriot Grande Ocean with its own Beach front bar and grill just a short stroll down the beach. An entire host of restaurants, coffee houses, grocery stores and assorted retail shops is about 1/2 mile away. Everything (even golfing) is within biking distance, so you can leave your car in the parking lot.
Additional information about rental rates
Note: Please be advised that construction is underway for a new Hilton Resort being built next door. While this should have minimal visual and audible impact while you are in your unit, there will be a visual disturbance from the parking lot and if you look north up the beach from your balcony. You may also hear some sounds of construction while on the balcony or at the pool.
