Why Liberty Bumpus chose North Forest Beach
After visiting many resort communities, up and down the Atlantic coast, we found Hilton Head to be the most complete for our family, with attractions for all ages. the uniqueness of the beach and it's hard pack sand, perfect for a bike ride, a jog or a starlit evening stroll was unsurpassed. The huge choice of varied restaurant offerings and live entertainment worthy of world classcities was very appealing to us.

Will definitely stay at Wanderer Lane again!
A big thank you to Marc, Jesse and Liberty for helping to make our family stay in Hilton Head so perfect. The house is ideal for a large gathering - just as described and shown in the pictures.
We had a low country boil,
played pool, rode bikes, played golf and tennis and had numerous walks on the beach. You truly can’t get closer to it.
We will be back.
Thanks so much! We loved having you all, and are happy to hear you had a wonderful time and we look forward to you staying with us again. We welcome you back anytime!
BEDBUGS - beware
The master bedroom had bedbugs. MANY bedbugs. They had been there some time to build up that size colony. We discovered the bites AFTER having slept there. My daughter has scars on her body from bedbug bites. Her hands were so swollen she missed work after we got back. 4 families had monetary, physical, mental and emotional consequences of exposure to a problem in this home. Homeowner was asked to refund our money based on everything we went through after this happened, but felt he did enough in having the fumigator take all the furniture out of the room in question and return it the next day after they debugged it. He gave us a small amount of money while we were there to buy clothes to wear (since they had to confiscate all the ones in that room), dog supplies and personal belongings to replace what they could not spray and to use while all our stuff was at exterminator and felt that was enough to make up for it. He refuses our requests for a refund even though VBRO has suggested he give us a refund. I sent him pictures of the bites that more than one person in our family were suffering from even long after we returned home. I explained we could not treat certain things and had to pay more money to replace them after coming home. He doesn't care one bit, his wallet is his decision maker and he doesn't want to lose money on the week no matter what we went through. BUYER BEWARE.
This was a very, very nice family, unfortunately Deb’s narrative did not accurately describe the events of the week.
The family checked in on Saturday and I stopped in on Sunday to check on them and everything was wonderful. We did not hear from them on Monday or Tuesday and I got a call on Wednesday night at 8:30-9:00 and when I asked if they wanted us to come by to check out the problem we were told to come the next morning.
I showed up at 9:00 am and my exterminators were there at 9:15. After a careful inspection of all 5 bedrooms we found a downstairs bedroom to have an infestation and removed all the furniture and personal items and took them away for sanitizing.
At that time I offered to upgrade the family to another oceanfront home (that offer was refused) and gave Deb a check for $1,000.00 (that was accepted) to compensate her for the inconvenience.
At this point I called vrbo for guidance and was told by 2 different representatives that the steps I had taken had exceeded the vrbo protocol for this situation and no further refund was recommended.
While I know for certain that I did not introduce the infestation, there remains the possibility that It came from a prior guest, except neither of the 2 prior weeks guests had any issues. The other possibility is that it came in on a piece of luggage from Deb’s group, but we will never know.
I think that anyone that reads the 69 5 star reviews we have received from our guests over the past few years, coupled with the fact that we have a 60% ratio of returning guests will have a clear understanding of our commitment to an outstanding vacation for our guests. Anything less is unacceptable, unfortunately a total refund was not appropriate nor would it have made the guest any happier.
After the hurricane...
Hurricane Dorian almost derailed our trip. Thankfully it missed Hilton head. Mark kept us apprised in the days between landfall and check in. He was amazing. Had just replaced the stove. Stayed a half hour to give us trucks to utilizing full benefits of the house. How to use spa. Connect to stereo. Things like that.
House was amazing!! Bedrooms all spacious. Pool table was perfectly located to enjoy often. The kitchen had a lot of counter space and storage. The included supplies made life easy. Pots, pans, griddle, coffee makers (no K-cup, but the drip carafe was good and the espresso machine wonderful). The microwave made a horrible noise and put out a smell. I texted mark. He was there in 20 min with a temporary replacement (there was also one in bar area) and had it replaced within 24 hours!! Only negative in the kitchen was the pantry had some mustiness (am sure common theme when that close to ocean)....but was the only negative.
The living room was spacious. TV’s in every room came loaded with Roku apps (Netflix pre-signed-in) and other apps u could use your own login. Had spectrum local Channels. We used our espn and Vudu accounts as well.
The pool was perfect. Spa was kinda funny when he showed us how to use it...he had someone there in a few hours to adjust it. We had paid to warm the pool but weather was sooo nice, mark just wrote us a check to give it back. It was perfect temperature. So was the ocean but can’t give mark and Jesse credit on that. The 45 second walk to beach was great. He had supplies galore - a small rolling device to take toys out, boogie boards, umbrelllas, beach chairs that strap to back.
The bikes were nice addition. 10 total. 2 for kids (no training wheels, maybe 8-12 years old or so). Then an attachment to pull young kids....which I did. And 7 other adult bikes.
We did use the boiling pot to do a crab boil and it was amazing!! Be aware it took 45-60 min to heat a massive pot to fill boil but rum and coke made that fly by. Mark has a recipe in the house to follow. Was spot on.
Piggly wiggly had freshest seafood. Kroger had best deals but further drive. Red fish is outstanding. Sea shack had great takeout. Skillets was good and close. FISH (at coligny) was great over phone about our large group...then treated us like crap when arrived...avoid if have large group.
Overall an amazing trip. Great house. Great hosts. Can’t wait to return!!
Thanks Mark and Jesse!
We rented 8 Wanderer after extensive research and couldn’t have been more pleased with the value, experience and unbelievable family time we had! We had our entire family of 9 adults and 7 grandchildren (ages 1-12). The pool is great. The beach access is perfect and we could watch our younger grandchildren walk to the beach to join others from the deck!
The house is stocked with everything except groceries and beverages!
In addition Marc and Jesse were fantastic hosts. We had no real issues but the one challenge we had was addressed quickly. The gas grill malfunctioned and Marc came over to get it going then came back the next day with a brand new grill!
We are returning in 2021!
Thank you Marc and Jesse!
Great Vacation Home!!
Great home and location for a large group to enjoy Hilton Head! Wonderfully stocked and manager is very helpful! Enjoy the pool or beach - ride bikes or just take in the view! If you choose to have a crab boil - make sure you allow a lot of time for water to boil and try to keep flame out of the wind.
