About The Owner
We've always loved the beach and have been 'beach people'. It probably dates back many years when my parents took our family to Litchfield (S. Myrtle) each summer, where we rented a house, and did everything beach... ride waves, build sand castles, steam crabs, and enjoy spending time with family. I met my wife on another beach, Manhattan Beach (Los Angeles) playing beach volleyball. When we moved back to the East Coast, we always knew we wanted a beach house, and Hilton Head, specifcally, North Forest Beach was a perfect fit.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
Why The Owner chose Forest Beach
There's no better place than Hilton Head for a beach vacation or golf trip:
-close to Atlanta
-many, many golf courses
-plenty of tennis courts
-quiet and peaceful
-super nice people
-an established Island with plenty of shopping and fun things to do
What makes this house unique
We absolutely love our beach home (The Happy Heron), as it's conviently located on Heron Street. It's a single story (no stairs) with plenty of room for two families, and the two living rooms (dens) are set-up perfectly to give the kids and adults plenty of quiet time. We've put some serious focus into the backyard, and converted it into a private oasis... 1300 sq ft of deck, with a 40' pool (salt) and an 8 person hot tub. If you're looking for a quiet nights sleep, you're going to the right place, as the house is insulated with a town-zoned park (4.5 acres). Hilton Head is known for it's bike paths, and our front yard empties onto a path that will take you for miles, from Sea Pines to Port Royal. Finally, when you just don't want to cook, walk a short 5 blocks and you're in the downtown of Hilton Head, Coligny, and ready to enjoy 60+ shops and restaurants.
