Why Eleonor & William Ambler chose North Forest Beach

Thirty years ago it was just an empty lot, 100 yards from a magnificent 12 mile beach, on an island we fell in love with during one of our family vacations. Twelve years later we designed and built the house as a family retreat and named it after our children: Tephie, Mark and Julie.

TEMAJÚ is a two level house that accommodates 8 people quite comfortably.

You are first welcomed by a landscaped area which includes, among others, Palmetto trees, a huge old Oak tree covered with Spanish moss, different color Oleanders, fragrant climbing vines, and lovely seasonal flowers.

On the first level we have a cathedral ceiling living-dining area with a fire place, two bedrooms (one furnished with a king size bed and the other with two twin size ones), one full and one half baths, a well equipped kitchen (with a full size microwave oven), a wraparound deck and a screened porch, both properly furnished for their enjoyment.

On the second level we have two more bedrooms (with two twin size beds each), one full and one half baths.

Wonderful house just a short walk from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week staying at this house. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for 8 adults, and the house was very clean and comfortable. The beach is a very short distance away, and the neighborhood was very quiet every night. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Hilton Head Island. :)

The best location to our destination. Fantastic beach access.

  • 4 of 5

We were able to have a great week in Hilton Head for annual PTR International Tennis Symposium off 100 yards from this property. The location enables us to make the most of our time there due to its location.

The house was almost perfect but a trouble with the ventilation system in the kitchen. We didn't do any oily cooking such as bacon & eggs after our first trial.

Overall, we really enjoyed staying at Temaju.

Looking forward to the next opprtunity to visit again.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Temaju is a great beach house in an amazing location. Only 4 houses from the beach, it provides a great way to enjoy the ocean and sand on HHI.

The house is spacious, bedding very comfortable and a great number of bathrooms. The kitchen is small but workable. The only negative comment I would make is that there are not enough cooking pots and pans and some of the small appliances did not work.

We had a few maintenance issues when we first arrived, but the owner and his maintenance staff took care of them promptly..

Other than that, it is a great value in the beautiful North Forest Beach area.

Owner's Response: We replaced the toaster & blender, and added a crock pot. A new set of pots & pans has been provided (in addition to those already there).

4 day Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had a great time staying at Temaju! There's no traffic from this house to a beautiful stretch of beach, and the house is just across North Forest Beach Drive from the wonderful bicycle/pedestrian pathway that loops around Hilton Head. If you're inclined, you could easily park the car and forget about it for your entire stay. Just enjoy walks and rides on the beach or pathway, then conveniently cycle to shopping and restaurants.

The house is very comfortable, with a large living/dining area, fairly large bedrooms with plenty of closet space, and a huge deck. The beautiful old live oak just off the back of the deck is a lovely bonus.

Rental through the owners couldn't have been easier; Temaju is one of the best rental home values in Hilton Head!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect family vacation! The house was perfect for the 7 of us. Excellent distance from the beach and close enough for all the island activities. It was so nice to wake up, get to the beach to see the sun rise. Beautiful in every way. Definitely a keeper on the vacation list.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bill's vacation home for our school's Fall Break. It is a great vacation home and in a great location on HHI. You walk out of the front door and it is 200 ft to the beach! :) My whole family enjoyed the stay and will be stay in this vacation home again, if at all possible.
