HANDICAP FRIENDLY, LG POOL, 250 YDS TO THE BEACH, 5 MIN TO COLIGNY

Forest Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Southwind has it all! Two houses for the price of one, a large pool with baby pool area, and handicapped accessibility. It is so well equipped, all you need to bring are your clothes!

A classic North Forest Beach property in a great location, Southwind is fun and convenient for every age group. It is on the bike trail, close to the best beach, and a four-five minute walk to Coligny with its shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. The main house is at ground level with no steps, which we all like, and a rear ramp and handicapped bathroom make it accessible to anyone with special needs. Having two houses on one property offers ideal space for both family togetherness and privacy.

What sets this house apart is not only the bonus two-story guest cottage but also the outstanding attention to comfort evident in every detail. From a spectacular pool, to good reading light in the bedrooms, to every imaginable utensil in the kitchen, the owners have thought of everything. The 8 foot flying fish sculpture catching the sun as you drive up is just a hint of things to come.

The decor is fabulous - the art, rugs, furnishings, and rich saturated golds, blues, and reds of Provence combine to create an atmosphere that is special from the moment you walk in. The owners have used their experience as bed and breakfast owners and long time Hilton Head renters to make this home perfect for any family vacation.

Entry: A large room, furnished with a library bench, and a desk with printer, fax, high speed DSL Internet access with wireless connection.

Den: Cozy spot for morning coffee, quiet conversation, or a good book. Queen sleeper sofa.

Carolina Room: Extends the length of the house in back. French doors open to the pool and screened porch. Custom banquette with table that seats up to 14, TV, and fireplace make this a great gathering place for the whole party. Sectional, recliner, swivel rockers, and lots of pillows for your comfort.

Kitchen: Newly remodeled, completely equipped. Owners are gourmet cooks, and it shows. Multiple pots of every size, baking pans, casseroles, knives, serving pieces for a crowd, several fun sets of dishes, fish forks and lobster crackers, and glasses galore. Even a cabinet fully stocked with spices. Small appliances include a pancake griddle, blender, and smoothy machine.

Screened Porch: A fabulous new addition, it connects the main house to the guest house. Nice big table for al fresco dining. Haywood-Wakefield rattan couch and chairs, teak buffet, wicker bar, and luxurious six-person spa.

Pool: One of the biggest and best private pools on the island. Enjoy the waterfall fountain and another stainless steel sculpture titled 'Flow'. The roped off sundeck, 18' deep, is designed for sunbathing on lounge chairs in the water, but it is also a perfect wading pool. Toddlers are happy there for hours while the next generation can swim laps, play volleyball, or laze on rafts. Lounge chairs, a massage chair, a cocktail height table with four swivel chairs and round table with comfy Brown Jordan bounce chairs ensure plenty of seating.

Garage: Stocked with toys for your use. bikes, beach chairs, cart, sand toys, rafts, floats, boogie boards, balls, Cornhole (the beanbag game sweeping the midwest), and even a two-person ocean kayak with paddles and life jackets.

Southwind was great! We had two families, 13 people in all and never felt like we were on top of each other. The house had everything we needed and was close to the beach and shopping. They have all of the sand toys, some beach chairs, a two man kayak and a cart to haul everything to the beach with. We got a lot of use out of the hot tub and the pool too. This is a place I would definately want to come back to. The owners are very nice to deal with too. Thanks for all of your tips and info, we had a great time!

VERY HAPPY WITH OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a week with three families 15 adults ages 18-56 comfortably. (15th person with owners permission Bill was very nice) Little older home but updated and kept nice by owners. The addition of buiding in and screening the area between the main house and guest house was a great idea by the owners. This created a large bug free area for us to gather and talk about our days activities in the evening. This is also where the hot tub is. A week prior to our arrival Bill sent a confirmation packet with their tips on where to eat and such and also gave contact numbers for all the services. We had a couple minor problems that were taken care of with no problem. Keep in mind people the owners or Maint. man can't help rectify a problem if you don't tell them you have one. I would also remind guests to treat things as you would your own. If you use the grills clean them after each use to be courtious of the next people coming in. They also told my sister in law to call the cleaning company to see if they were done if we got into town early and we might be able to get in before 4pm which we did. We also called them to let them know we were all out before 10am on check out day so they could start earlier. The bikes were used as well as pool toys and beach stuff. Again be kind and clean off the sand as requested by owners as this makes everything much more enjoyable for all guests that might use this property. Being so close to Coligny Plaza was great. A mere 3 block walk to get a few groceries if needed at Piggly Wiggly or a quick sandwich at Stu's sub shop or a sit down dinner at one of the resturants. I DO NOT RECOMMEND Earle of Sandwich. Our experience there just plain sucked. It was a scam for the servers. There were six of us and we had to sit at two different tables and we couldn't split the checks 2 people each because their system is not computerized and it would be too much work for the waiter who had to handle a whopping 5 to 6 tables. This also affords him a guaranteed 20% tip whether his service is good or not. In the end for 6 sandwiches and fries and drinks and $2 for a glass of water $103. Stick to Stu's, a much better sandwich and a whole lot cheaper. The walk to the beach was also short and if you are going to have alot to carry the cart in the garage came in handy for us. We would most certainly stay here again and are even considering their other property on Dove st.

Comfortable home, great extras and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week at this home. We have 4 twenty-something kids, and there was plenty of space and entertainment options for everyone. The bikes, beach chairs, cart, and pool volleyball were wonderful extras. The kitchen is very well equipped...plenty of dishes, utensils, glasses, etc. I love the location, easy walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops. The owner is great, easy to communicate with, and he left very helpful restaurant tips. We hope we can come back again.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a week with extended family at this house on Egret. We had 7 adults and 6 kids and it was a great time. We loved the large pool--playing volleyball in the pool was a big hit. The pool fountain wasn't working during our stay last week which was a little disappointing but no biggie. Having the shallow section of the pool was nice for the younger kids. And there's so many pool toys and floaties in the garage!

Owners were very pleasant to deal with and he even showed up with more bikes when he found out we needed a small bike for our 6year old and a bike trailer for my 3year old niece. We had trouble with chains falling off a few of the bikes but because the bikes were free we didn't mind. My teenager spent an afternoon working on the bikes and the chains stayed on much better after that.

The house is beautifully decorated, clean and well maintained. It feels more like a bed and breakfast than a beach rental...beautiful rugs, unique lamps. The kitchen was adequate for what we needed. The screened breezeway was really nice--we ate most of our meals out there. The beds were average...I've slept on worse and I've slept on better. My relatives said that the guest house bed was pretty uncomfortable.

I loved being on such a quiet street and so close to Coligny and the beach. This was our 4th time to visit Hilton Head and this is our favorite rental so far. We chose it because of the handicapped accessibility as one of our party is in a wheelchair. He had no trouble getting around the house and property and could even get onto the beach via the fabric beach sidewalk at Coligny.

The owners were very quick to respond to emails and had answers to all my questions. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and if/when our gang returns to Hilton Head we'll stay here again.

Have to also recommend Java Joe's...we walked here one morning after watching the sunrise on the beach and after ordering our drinks realized they don't take Discover (this was the only card/money we'd grabbed before heading to the beach). The girl behind the counter gave us our drinks anyway and said we could come back later to pay! We were impressed. Other restaurants we like (and are gluten-free friendly) are Wise Guys, Lowcountry Backyard (potato chip meatloaf!), and the cupcake store next to Piggly Wiggly (gluten free cupcakes on certain days).

AWESOME TIME

  • 5 of 5
Would like to tell you about our family time at Southwind and answer some of the concerns of the 1 very negative review. Pool was crystal clear and backwashed and cleaned while we were there and it was very hot out and rained. Great pool and amily gathering area, even grandpa ot in. We did have cell phone service all of us with different carriers and house phones worked. Bike were very used but that was expected and we rented others for small children. Chain did fall off one several times but was very easy to but back on, even kids could do it. Want bikes rent them, they were a great perk for the house. I had internet service in the guest house and so did others who were there. Shower on side of the house always worked and was great for hosing off after beach. No prolems with garbage if you put the lids on tight, so many garbage pick up dates, which was great. Maybe 2 weeks was too long for this family, although we would have liked to stay 2 instead of 1 but that was all grandpa and I could afford.

We were a family of 14 from ages 7-68 and we loved every minute except the 1 day it rained all day but we made the most of it doing puzzels at the house playing games and using the hot tub. We did have some issues the refrigerator in guest house went out but all refregerators do that, had a new one next day. Gas grill also went out first day and by 7:30 am next day had an awesome new one what more cn you ask for. Not anyones fault just age and use. Called owners sent over Edwin who checked it out and got OK for new items, how simple and awesome was that? If something breaks while you are there, call so they can fix it, instead of doing without because the owner doesn't know unless you tell them. Speaking of Edwin what a super guy and maintenance person! Friendly, efficient, and just plain AWESOME! Thought I left my sunglasses behind called maintenance people and they said they would see I got them (did find them in car and called them back) . Everyone we meet that was part of the house crew was great, but Edwin was our favorite and the BEST. Thank you Groth family for a great vacation, will start saving again so we can come back in the future. Will recomend you to all our frinds who want to visit HH.
