A Michigander that flew south after deciding shoveling snow is for the birds! But fun to play in...

Clotilde Book purchased this house in 2007

North Forest Beach is still one of the best and most sought after communities even for rentals because it it not a commercial area. It is a quiet forested area with dead-end streets right next to the ocean, but has quick access to town if you are heading out for fun. Expect deer, racoons, Great horned owls and Lunar moths as part of your forest/beach experience.

See this homes website '18sandpiper.com' for features and full rate schedule.

PERFECT! FOREST GALORE SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
Nicely lay out of ranch style living. Plenty of space to roam around. Rooms are nice sizes. TV's in every room even the sun porch! Laundry room is nice and big. You have all the amities of home and more. Very clean and well kept. Owner was always reachable and provided excellent service whenever we needed it. Plenty of windows for cross ventilation and beautiful breezes. Outside backyard is like a forest adventure. Plenty of trees and beautiful birds singing their songs. A well placed hammock that in fact did see a lot of use! Easy walk to beach and great paths for biking. A little secret every morning around 7:30 am to about 9:00 am if you head down to the Crown Plaza Access (left on beach about a 10 minute walk) you will be greeted by an “Unofficial Dog Play Beach Time”. Out little “Noah” loved this part and boy did he have a blast… meeting about 20/30 dogs a day. If you do go with or w/o dog you will be happy you did! Say hello to “Jake” (white golden retriever) he is the “Mayor” of the dog park! Tell him “Noah” from NJ says “Woof”! A great place. We will be back!!!

DON'T COUNT ON BIKES OR BEACH CHAIRS

Don't count on Bikes or Beach Chairs
  • 3 of 5
While we did limit ourselves by searching for a dog friendly property, and our dogs enjoyed the opportunity to vacation with us, we were disappointed in this property / amenities.

The bikes that came with the house were so rusty they wouldn't pedal....so don't count on having bikes included in the beach house. We brought some of our bikes from home, and ended up wishing we'd brought all of our own bikes.

The beach chairs were all very heavy old chairs, except for one....so I carried the chair to the beach to relax and read, only to discover upon arrival at the beach that the webbing on the chair was broken. So, don't count on any modern beach chairs, bring your own.

My husband felt the house was a bit dated, and he particularly didn't like the outside spaces as a place to hang out, probably hindered by the tree junk that was on all patios / chairs & tables.....and tracked into the house a lot. It was pretty shady and we needed our bug spray, because HHI has mosquitos.

Overall the house was "okay"....it was clean and weliked having a washing machine.....we didn't think it lived up to the rave reviews found on the rental websites.

QUIET RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The home is exactly as pictured. The owner has the home completely stocked. It is centrally located with the Coligny Square about 1/2 mile away. The beach is 1 block away. It is an ideal layout for a pet. The entire yard is not fenced however. Overall, a very nice place. I would not hesitate recommending this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are glad you felt the house had what it needed for daily routines with out having to "run to the store" every day. Our goal is "bring a bag and relax". It is being taken into consideration having a large pen put on the property for pets. June 2011 a 10X20 ft dog run was added to the backyard.

WHERE THE PINE FOREST TOUCHES THE SAND

  • 5 of 5
Unbelievably peaceful, mornings and evenings, listening to the birds and squirrels, pine needles and native plants in abundance. The house and backyard are very private, We opened lots of windows, great fresh air.
We were a group of adults, ballgames on the Carolina room tv for the men, movies in the living room, the 3 couches, made it very comfortable, there are 4 dining areas, a well appointed kitchen, and upgraded appliances.That made for a vacation in itself, but then there was the beach.
Across a non busy street, with walking and biking trails, through a wooded canopy , the beautiful unspoiled ocean and sand, I joined the sparse collection of beach walkers, and enjoyed the birds both morning and evening, dogs loved it, as did their owners, beautiful beach homes to admire.
A 30 minute walk either along the beach or the walking path bring you to civilization, Hilton Head style.
Day trips to Savannah and Beaufort, and Charleston, make for an exceptional vacation. We love the southern food.
The house was all that was promised, very clean and comfortable, a real home. Beds were very comfortable, everything was provided, no worries. Clothilde was a pleasure to do business with, just an email away.
I'm sure families with children will love this place, but I recommend it to travelers who value nature and comfort, a hotel would never compare.

WHAT A WONDERFUL STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a home away from home. Not like a rental unit. My family enjoyed their stay and we could spread out with plenty of room. The house was clean and everthing was functional. We loved the close access to the beach and other island amenities. We loved spending time in the carolina room and the beautiful pation / back yard. We defently will be back. Thank you for the wonderful stay. We look forward to seeing you in 2008!

This home is in one of the most sought after locations on Hilton Head, North Forest Beach. Why? One of the reasons is there is no public parking access to it so only the residents can walk there. But, by beach or bike path you are only a 5 minute bike ride from famous 'Coligny' and all the unique shops, restaurants, public beach, grocery stores, and watering holes. The island has lots of Outlet malls, Restaurants, Marina's, with Tennis and Golf facilities which are just around the corner from this centrally located home. But the best part is, you are in a quiet forest area and only 6 houses from the beach, and includes a wagon. ( other renters sometimes leave some beach things behind.) Take bikes for a ride down the bike paths to town for exploring or shopping.There is secured Wi-Fi, parking for 4 cars and a fully supplied kitchen & laundry. Enjoy our free newspaper delivery every day to search new ideas and events with your coffee in the morning.

Other Activities: Climb the lighthouse in Harbortown, visit old tabby ruins, take your kids crabbing or a dolphin cruise, even a horseback ride on the island. You will not run out of restaurants to try on this island. 'Hinoki's' sushi to 'The Sea Shack', and anywhere in between including the roof top of 'Santa Fe' is all game here. Visit Savannah, Beaufort & Daufuskie Island. All close and all different. Then go shopping in Bluffton and their farmers market for fresh food and eclectic works of art. Hilton Head also now has a farmers market located at the 'Shelter Cove town park' property which is a great family excursion. (See our link page on our website for info on days and times) Buy fresh seafood and have a low country boil in our back yard and finish that off with somemores by the fire.

Golf: There are more than 8 public golf courses within the 8 mile radius of this home. Shipyard Golf Club~843-689-4653. Sea Pines: Harbour Town Golf Links~ 843-842-8484, Ocean Course~ 843-842-8484, Heron Point~ 843-842-8484.

Palmetto Dunes: Arthur Hills, George Fazio Course, Robert Trent Jones Course~ 843-785-1138. Indigo Run: Golden Bear Golf Club~ 843-689-2200 PLUS 9 public courses off island.
