Why Wendy (Owner) email or call Phone# 1 or 2 chose South Forest Beach

The ocean view is great and the proximity to the beach is the closest option you can get. The villa complex is also well maintained. Being able to park the car and walk or ride a bike to all the action at Coligny Beach Plaza is great!

What makes this villa unique

To go out to the beach morning, noon or night is so convenient. Having a fully equipped kitchen simplifies your vacation and saves you $$$. You will appreciate the convenient location for shopping and enjoying Coligny's Beach Plaza. Biking all over the island is great and you'll meet the nicest people with lots of Southern hospitality.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at this property. Condo was neat and clean and had everything we needed. Nicely decorated and good view of the ocean from the balcony. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice, cozy, beachfront accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and Herb have done a wonderful job of maintaining this cozy beachfront villa! It is small, with one bedroom and a kitchen-living room, but it is right on the beach. Walk out your door, down the steps, through the gate and you are at the beach, and it is a very nice beach! The view of the ocean from the balcony was one we enjoyed each and every day of our stay. Very close to Coligny Plaza, an easy 5 to 10 minute walk, so you can pretty much park the car and leave it. But if you did that, you'd miss out on the incredible restaurants Hilton Head has to offer (Sea Shack, Skull Creek Boathouse, Salty Dog, Aunt Chilada's to name a few). All in all, the Seaside Villas has a location you can't beat if you like the beach and Coligny, and Wendy and Herb have a villa which is very well equipped and very well kept!

A few days at Hilton Head Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a VRBO property! And it was great! The property was very well maintained and had many renovations from fresh paint, to granite countertops to updated baths, light fixtures and more. We didn't need anything additional. Check in and out was easy. I will definitely stay at Wendy's unit again in the future.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to the island since 1989 and have always stayed at Seaside Villas, although in a variety of units. In 2014, I discovered this unit and fell in love with it. The renovations made the space much more usable and the new touches that Wendy and Herb have added have made it even nicer! I've always dreamed of living on the island, but I think this may be as close as I'll ever come. The convenience to the beach, great food, super beach chairs, and fun things to do; and as a single woman who sometimes travels alone, I feel very safe here. My best food finds this time were Michael Anthony's and Santa Fe Café. And if you want to bike, they'll bring you one! Yes, feels like home to me. And I'm sure it would feel that way to you, too!

Great area - great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights as a last minute getaway. We always love Hilton Head and particularly enjoy Forest Beach and Coligny. The location is ideal. You can walk down the beach or on the street a short distance to Coligny plaza which has tons of fun shopping and dining. If you have never been to Hilton Head, renting a bike is a must as well given the amazing network of bike paths. You can't beat the convenience as far as going to and from the beach. This condo is perfect for a couple but would work for a family with a small child (or two) as well. If you have small kids staying beach front is a must! We loved sitting on the balcony and enjoying the ocean view. Nice pool area - plenty of parking on premise. Everything you need is there in terms of the kitchen and for beach fun and relaxation. Very clean!! Very friendly and helpful owner - picking up the keys (even on late arrival) is very convenient as property management company is right up the street on South Forest Beach Drive.

Perfect Palace of Peace!

  • 5 of 5

Love this cozy condo! Beautifully decorated and appointed. The space is lovely! I loved the balcony-birds were sining! The whole property with the two pools, the deck area, and the walkway to the beach-all perfect. The condo is conveniently located for shops and dining, but most especially the beach-go early and come back to take a quick nap. If You're looking for a getaway-you've found it here! Enjoy!
