About the property

3 Bed/2.5 bath very CLOSE to beach, Coligny, Sea Pines, Shipyard, & Harbor Town!

Hello - you are invited to enjoy our newly renovated Hilton Head Island beach getaway home! The 2 story 3 bedroom villa comfortably sleeps 6. The home is bright, clean and adorable, located in a very quiet neighborhood that has 3 pools and 1 tennis court for you to enjoy! The beach is a short ½ mile walk away, as well as numerous shops and restaurants in Coligny Plaza. As you enter the ground floor of the property you will immediately notice the bright and breezy feel of your destination. The easy-going elegance of the coastal decor will make you feel right at home! There are cozy slip-covered couches to lie back on and a huge leather ottoman to rest your sandy feet. The tile flooring will keep you nice and cool while you enjoy the warmth of the island and the home’s tropical garden views. Also downstairs, you will notice the charmingly shabby chic dining area overlooking the garden patio. Through the sliding doors you may step outside to enjoy rinsing off your beach gear to the sounds of chirping birds and the garden’s splashing water fountains. This villa truly boasts an idyllic location. Don’t forget to come back inside to enjoy the rest of our home, though, because there is a lot more to see! Continuing though the downstairs you will find a cheery sun room to enjoy your morning coffee or to socialize with friends in the evening while entertaining in the fully-stocked galley kitchen. The comfortable daybed in the sun room even has a pull-out trundle and is the perfect way to accommodate an extra guest or two! This room was designed to easily be closed off to both the kitchen and the dining/living room areas in cases where privacy is desired. Otherwise, enjoy it as another comfortable lounging area during your vacation. Proceeding into the kitchen you will find all new (as of Spring 2018) stainless appliances and quartz countertops. We strive to keep our kitchen clean as a whistle and filled with all the utensils, cookware, and serving ware you will need during your stay. As you conclude your downstairs tour you will notice the stack-able washer and dryer, provided for your convenience, and the charming powder room for washing up before dinner! Before you head upstairs, please be sure to notice all the woodworking details we’ve added, like the crisp-white bead board ceiling, chair rail accents, and crown molding. We also hope you will enjoy the custom art created for the home; an ocean-blue hand-blown glass sculpture and a joyous acrylic abstract painting, both from Charleston, SC. There are even more custom details to be enjoyed as you walk up the brightly-lit light oak stair well. Hang your purse, shopping bags, or rest your car keys on the peg board shelf so your hands are free to pick up a good book on the upstairs landing’s book case – there are good reads for young and old! Each of the carpeted bedrooms has gorgeous views of the neighborhood’s courtyard gardens and balcony access. You will sleep soundly on the queen sized beds and enjoy the fresh towels and linens provided for your stay. There are 2 full baths upstairs, both completely new showers, toilets, and granite vanity tops as of 2017. We are sure you will find your stay incredibly relaxing, comfortable, and enjoyable. Amenities include cable and wireless internet, large flat screen smart TV downstairs in the living/dining room area and a small flat screen with dvd player in the master. Thank you for your interest and we hope that you will come enjoy Hilton Head Island soon!

About Brooke Caruso

I am an artist and my husband works in finance. We spend our time here and in Charleston, SC.

Brooke Caruso purchased this villa in 2005

Why Brooke Caruso chose South Forest Beach

Hilton Head is a very special destination that has been tastefully developed. It retains many natural and wild areas while simultaneously offering a multitude of premium shopping, dining, and entertainment options. It is very easily enjoyed on foot and bicycle and is a town geared towards families enjoying the outdoors, especially all things related to the beach, golf, and tennis! Our villa is located on the South end of the island, which is a favorite area. It is so close to the beach and all other attractions/conveniences that we rarely venture more than a few miles from home. The wonderful part about the location is that while you are very close to all the popular and sunny happenings of Hilton Head you also have a quiet shady home base to cool off and chill out.

What makes this villa unique

Overall I would say that the location of this villa made us fall in love with the property. Everything we love to do - beach, pool, dine, shop, bike - it is all so easy to enjoy while we are staying at our villa. The neighborhood is very unique, too, with its network of catwalk paths, creating the neighborhood's namesake, "Treetops."

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Brooke,

Sadly vacation is over, and it's back to reality. So, I'd like to take a minute to say thank you for sharing your beach villa with my family. We had a very enjoyable vacation. The island is simply paradise. The accommodations were first class. Your villa is beautifully decorated, yet comfortable and inviting. We found it to be impeccably clean, and luxuriously comfortable. The location was perfect, and all your maps and directions were very helpful. Of all the rentals we've used over the years, it was by far the best. Thank you also for being so easy to work with, and so accommodating with the early check-in and late check-out. You helped make our vacation enjoyable and stress free. Thank you so much.

Nice Townhouse for Beach Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Townhouse is nicely decorated and pictures are accurate. Owner was very responsive and provided good info, pool was close to unit . Walk to beach is not bad, but it is a walk.

Beautiful villa, beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautifully updated, and impeccably clean. The owner was very easy to work with and extremely accommodating. We traveled by plane to get here, so we were unable to bring all we would normally bring for a beach vacation. Everything we needed was already there. The bedding and linens were as good as any luxury hotel. We have rented several beach homes throughout the years, and this one was by far the nicest. The owner obviously takes great care of this property and it shows. The villa is also in a great location and close to the beach. Hilton Head is a beautiful island! Thank you Brooke for helping us to have a great family vacation!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We should have stayed longer, but could not. The owner was most gracious, the place was immaculate, and that end of Hilton Head was quiet with everything accessible by walking, biking, or car. Would go back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed yourselves on the island and that you found our villa to be clean and comfortable. You are certainly welcome back any time! I agree with you about the South End of Hilton Head being an ideal location. When we visit we too enjoy the convenience of the villa's close proximity to the area's beach, shopping, dining, etc. There is so much to enjoy on that end of the island! Thank you for booking with us and taking the time to write a review. Please make plans to return! Take care, Brooke

The Townhouse is nice. For a family and all there stuff you must drive to beach

  • 4 of 5

Further from Beach then we understood. For children i recommend driving and parking in public parking across from Marriott. The home is cute and functional. The south is full of bugs Expect lots of bugs. This is not walking distance for children
