About Clotilde Book
A Michigander that flew south after deciding shoveling snow is for the birds!......... But fun to play in...☃️
Clotilde Book purchased this House in 2007
Why Clotilde Book chose North Forest Beach
North Forest Beach is still one of the best and most sought after communities even for rentals because it it not a commercial area. It is a quiet forested area with dead-end streets right next to the ocean, but has quick access to town if you are heading out for fun. Expect deer, racoons, possums, Great horned owls and Lunar moths as part of your forest/beach experience.
What makes this House unique
Being in a quiet cul-de-sac and no stairs this house is geared toward the 45+ crowd and the infirm. There are very few pet friendly homes by the beach that are on the ground level. Don't miss this one!
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Close to beach
Nice short walk to semi-private beach. Easy bike ride to Coligny. Very private setting. Enjoyed the fire box and water fountain on patio. Kitchen supplies need improving especially cookware. Landscaper/caretaker very nice and he cleaned up mess from storm the next day.
Thank you. We did deliver LED bulbs to replace the fluorescent ones when requested, but there was no mention of anything else you needed.
Great location for family vacation
This is a wonderful location for a family vacation as there is lots of room to spread out: a Carolina room to relax in, a back patio with a fountain that can be turned on/off, fire pit and grill. The forested area was a bonus which gave us respite from the sun although the beach was only a 5 minute walk.
The kitchen is small and was challenging to have more than 1-2 people in there at a time but all appliances worked well. I would recommend bringing your own special kitchen tools just in case because not all tools are available. ( I needed a wine opener)
Deodorizers of different scents were plugged into every room when we arrived which made the cottage smell strange to us as we are very sensitive to smells. We unplugged them however and within a day the cottage was cleared of deodorizer smells.
We had two wine openers but they seem to have legs and run sprints.
It was plenty large enough for us and a short walk to the beach.
The kitchen is too small for the number the people the house accommodates. The wall to the dining room should be taken out and make it one large room for both. We enjoyed the sunroom.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay other than the kitchen. This is a 3 bedroom 2 bath family home. We are sorry you did not find the kitchen suitable for the week for a larger crowd.
Very comfortable with a great location
The house very comfortably fit a family of 6 which included two couples. The family room and back porch were very spacious. For eating, lots of room to spread out at two separate tables. The location, just 300 feet from the beautiful private beach was convenient and the neighborhood was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
A great place to spend a week at the beach
Property was just as expected and advertised. Private, quiet, and close to the beach. Property was clean, fully furnished - and then some. Every amenity that would be required for a week at the beach was provided. The back yard was great, an extra tank of gas (propane) for the grill was provided. The house was clean and perfect for the two of us and our dog. The owner was available when we had an issue understanding how to set up the TV's for the internet cable service. She was kind and accommodating to our needs.
All in all a perfect week at the beach at a wonderful home rental.
Great location!! Easy access to beach and Coligny Plaza!!
Not the most luxurious or modern place but very cozy and relaxing house!! Has everything you need to enjoy a vacation at the beach!
Thank you Bryan for your kind review. We are not luxurious or modern, but comfortable, affordable and pet friendly by the beach. It is the location and privacy we are known for.
This home is in one of the most sought after locations on Hilton Head, 'North Forest Beach'. Why? One of the reasons is there is no public parking access to it so only the residents can walk there. But, by beach or bike path you are only a 5 minute bike ride from famous 'Coligny' and all the unique shops, restaurants, public beach, grocery stores, and watering holes. The island has lots of Outlet malls, Restaurants, Marina's, with Tennis and Golf facilities which are just around the corner from this centrally located home. But the best part is, you are in a quiet forest area and only 6 houses from the beach, and includes a wagon. ( other renters sometimes leave some beach things behind.) Take bikes for a ride down the bike paths to town for exploring or shopping.There is secured Wi-Fi, parking for 4 cars and a fully supplied kitchen & laundry. Enjoy our free newspaper delivery every day to search new ideas and events with your coffee in the morning.
Other Activities: Climb the lighthouse in Harbortown, visit old tabby ruins, take your kids crabbing or a dolphin cruise, even a horseback ride on the island. You will not run out of restaurants to try on this island. 'Hinoki's' sushi to 'The Sea Shack', and anywhere in between including the roof top of 'Santa Fe' is all game here. Visit Savannah, Beaufort & Daufuskie Island. All close and all different. Then go shopping in Bluffton and their farmers market for fresh food and eclectic works of art. Hilton Head also now has a farmers market located at the 'Shelter Cove town park' property which is a great family excursion. (See our link page on our website for info on days and times) Buy fresh seafood and have a low country boil in our back yard and finish that off with somemores by the fire.
