About Wayne Booker
Mary Jo and Wayne live in Dublin, Ohio. We have been married for 43 years and have 4 sons and 7 grandchildren. We originally lived in Philadelphia, but moved to Ohio in 1981. Wayne does mergers and acquisitions work and commercial real estate in addition to teaching at Franklin University. Mary Jo is a very attentive grandmother.
Wayne Booker purchased this House in 1998
Why Wayne Booker chose North Forest Beach
We have been vacationing on Hilton Head since 1984 and have never missed a year. We finally decided to invest in our own home in 1998 and have never regretted it. The island has a unique charm that puts you at rest as soon as you cross the bridge. Although there are lots of things to do and fantastic restaurants, the best part is to just sit by the pool or on the beach and read a good book. We love it hear even in the winter, where it may get cool, but never cold.
What makes this House unique
About 65% of our guests come either every year or every other year. Most of them feel like they own a part of it and we encourage them to feel that way. It is so convenient to have everything on one floor and to be only a few steps to the beach. It is also affordable for smaller groups or families who can't gather the 5 or 6 families to pay for one of the enormous mansions.

What a great week in a beautiful house! The house was perfect for our family and extended family that came to visit, everyone had plenty of room. We made great use of the grill and cooked in several nights. The pool and proximity to the beach could not have been better! Wayne was great to work with and very responsive. We will be back next year!
It is so nice to get such a nice review. Hilton Head is our second home and we love sharing our wonderful beach house since we spend most of our time with our beloved family in Ohio. It makes Mary Jo and I so happy to see that other families have also formed such lasting memories of their vacations at the beautiful beach on our favorite island.
Great place to just relax!!!
A great property. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for just relaxing. Plus, we like to cook in the evening, and the kitchen and dinning room, open to the living room, was very good for cooking and eating. The two master bedrooms were spacious. I loved the private backyard, with the indoor heated pool and spacious area to just lounge around, have a drink, take a nap, read a book. TV, DVD and video games, too! :-) Five adults vacationed here and found it quite nice. It is just a stones throw away from the beach, and by car there are sooooo many restaurants nearby. I would recommend this place to my family and friends!
This is pretty typical of the response that we get from the surveys that are returned by every guest when they send back their emergency key. Sometimes they report problems to us that we are unaware of, and we view that as a positive because we know where to improve. One guest compained that the mattresses were hard. We really had no idea because we only sleep in one bedroom when we visit. But sure enough, he was right and we replaced all the mattresses and box springs (5) except for the comfy one which we had always used. We respond promptly to all problems and have trusted vendors to take care of them. We take it personally if a guest is unhappy, because this is our home, not a motel room.
The House was very functional and location was perfect
The layout of the house was great especially having 2 master suites on opposite sides of living area. Porch was nice for meals. It was nice to be able to walk to restaurants and have the bike trail so close.
We are so happy to see people enjoy our vacation home. Our whole family enjoys it so much it is nice to share and see others make lasting memories as well.
Great house for the price
The house is great and you can’t ask for a better location to the beach and it is in walking distance to Coligny Plaza. Which we did multiple times during our stay. The house has a great layout and multiple seating areas inside and out. We enjoyed breakfast on the screened porch every morning. Kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are very comfortable. We would definitely rent this home again, the next time we come to HHI without our dogs.
Good house, good amenities in great location
Clean house, very homely, great layout with good amenities. Kids loved the pool. House could be updated in some areas (e.g., A/C a little spotty, kettle leaked). Amazing location. Very happy overall and would recommend.
We always appreciate feedback from our guests and have already called our HVAC contractor to get a checkup. The A/C is only a year old. Not really sure about the problem with the kettle, but our on site manager will check it out. If our guest had given us a call, we would have addressed the issues immediately.
We arrived on Saturday, everything very good. Plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 children.
Very close to beach which is very important, nice swimming pool heavily used by all.
Located on North Forest Beach on Hilton Head, the home is in a very private residential area. Access to the beach is very limited so it is never crowded. A short walk takes you to shopping and many different restaurants. The island area has many golf courses, tennis, a water park, fitness centers, two outlet malls, four star restaurants, and many national retailers. Grocery shopping is very economical and there are many choices if you choose to cook in. A one hour drive takes you to beautiful Savannah or Beaufort, both historical cities with beautiful antebellum homes. Two hours takes you to Charleston.
