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!

Nice quiet property. Short distance to a very uncrowded beach!

Just like being at home, if you needed something then it was most likely in the house.

The property owner was great to work with!

Quiet, Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. House is in an excellent location. Very easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Bike path is very close to the house and from there you can pretty much reach everything on the island by bike. We really enjoyed coffee in the morning in the back sunroom.

Nice house, very accommodating, roomy and really a turnkey operation with everything you might need.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at 18 Sandpiper. The location is ideal...very short walk to private beach, one mile walk to Coligny Plaza/restaurants, yet the setting is quiet, private and relaxing. The best of all worlds. CiCi, the owner, is great to work with....she's pleasant, reassuring, accommodating and goes out of her way to make sure you are happy. We hope to return next year!

Great and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The home was comfortable and met all of our needs. Clotilde was very friendly and responsive to any questions as well. The backyard is very private and the bird watching was lovely, but could use a good trimming. Would definitely rent again.

Home was clean and comfortable. It is secluded, so if one prefers a little more activity, might choose an alternative. If one prefers a quiet experience, it would be worthy of consideration. Was kind of like house sitting for a relative. Felt like we were being watched by a drone that flew over when we were sitting in back yard. However, have no idea if this was related to the owner.

Owner's Response: This home has always been advertised as secluded, quiet & private, yet it is only a mile from town. Easy access to stores and activities. As for the drone, absolutely not us. This is why we ask people to call us if you have a problem. Had we known we would have done something. Considering the amount of trees in the area & yard, it did not come from to far away. Perhaps one of the four rental homes that border the property. We consider drones a nuisance in the wrong hands and would like to see "open season" on those that go over private property. We will try to look into it, but to much time has passed and this is the first we have heard about this.

How lucky we were to find this gem! Secluded and yet so close to the beach, who could ask for more? We had a wonderful time walking on the beach and riding the bike paths. Hope to rent again next year!!

North Forest Beach
Car: recommended

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.

Golf: There are more than 8 public golf courses within the 8 mile radius of this home. Shipyard Golf Club~843-689-4653. Sea Pines: Harbour Town Golf Links~ 843-842-8484, Ocean Course~ 843-842-8484, Heron Point~ 843-842-8484.

Palmetto Dunes: Arthur Hills, George Fazio Course, Robert Trent Jones Course~ 843-785-1138. Indigo Run: Golden Bear Golf Club~ 843-689-2200 PLUS 9 public courses off island.
