Going to the beach? Included in the house is a plastic wagon for trips to the beach. Your Castle by the Sea is located less than 90 yards to the Beach. The walk to the beach is on a sandy road with little traffic. Located a few blocks from the large hotels, this section of beach is quiet and not very crowded.

What better for a trip to the beach than sleeping Under the Sea?

For your mermaids and mermen, take a weeks’ vacation Under the Sea. Designed to feel like the children are under water with their Little Mermaid friends, the entire room is painted like water. Our Under the Sea room features a queen size bunkbed with Disney’s Little Mermaid bedding.

Not a princess fan? Our other Under the Sea room features friends from the movie Finding Nemo including Nemo, Marlin, Dory and Crush the turtle. This room features two sets of twin bunkbeds decorated like castles under the sea. The bedding in this room is Finding Nemo bedding from Disney Home.

Our third twin bedroom is called Cottage by the Sea and features a cottage shaped bunkbed with a full size bed on the bottom and a twin on top. The bedding in this room is from Pottery Barn Kids.

This home offers a large (roughly 16 x 30 feet) pool with a heated spa. For those of you traveling with babies or toddlers, our pool offers a large sun deck step at the entrance to the pool which is six inches deep where young ones can sit and splash in the water. We have also included a swim out ledge around half of the pool for new swimmers to be able to play and rest. Surrounding the pool is a large deck area equipped with an outdoor kitchen which includes a gas barbecue grill, beverage refrigerator, countertop and seating and a sink. The pool area also includes covered porches, and plenty of lounge chairs and tables. At the street level is an outdoor shower for rinsing off after making sand castles at the beach.

The custom kitchen is stocked with everything you would need to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal for a large family. No expense has been spared on this kitchen from the granite counter tops and custom cabinetry to the high end appliances. Do not like to do dishes? Do not worry, this kitchen has two full-size dishwashers for cleaning up even the biggest meal.

The games room in the garage has a pool table, small Little Tykes gym for kids, putting green, counter/bar area and a tv.

Our home offers a full size Thomas like train table and train set for the junior engineers! Our Castle By the Sea offers both a SONY Playstation 2 and a Nintendo GameCube with games.

About Debbie Finn

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband and two kids. We have traveled to Hilton Head for more than 10 years and look forward to welcoming you to the Castle by the Sea.

Debbie Finn purchased this house in 2004

Why Debbie Finn chose North Forest Beach

We have always loved Hilton Head. We enjoy the North Forest Beach area because it offers a great beach and it is walking distance to Coligny Plaza. Coligny Plaza offers shopping, dining, movies, groceries, and entertainment.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

The pictures tell the correct story! The house is amazing. It is perfect for multiple families. We had 2 families with 7 children ages 4 - 18. The kids loved the theme bedrooms, the pool, toys in the garage, and the very short walk to the beach. We also loved walking to dinner and shopping. The house was amazing! Clean, comfortable beds, organized, and had everything we needed. We would recommend this house. We hope to return.

2nd time staying at Castle By The Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Will not be the last! There are too many things to say about this wonderful home! Perfect for families of all ages! The home has everything you need and more! The layout is perfect as well as the location! October in Hilton was wonderful! The kids lived in the pool or the beach! The beds are comfortable and the children loved the themed room! We are so excited that the owner also has a home in Florida and will be planning a trip to Disney in the next couple of years! We know where we will be staying! Thank you Debbie for use of your wonderful home!

Great house, plenty of space, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had four families stay with kids of all ages, and there was plenty of room. The kitchen had more than enough dishes, silverware, etc, and four different refrigerators on the property so that was never an issue. The pool and outdoor space was great, close the the beach and shopping/dining. The local property managers were very attentive to some minor internet issues we had and had them fixed in no time. We would definitely stay again!

We could not ask for a better home to spend a week at the beach!! There were 8 adults and 10 children and there isn't anything missing!! It's a beautiful home and the owners and managing realtor make sure everything is perfect. Our grandchildren's favorite home that we have ever stayed in!!
