Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This fantastic 2 bedroom villa is perfect for your next Hilton Head Island getaway. 3359 Lake Forest Villa is a spacious townhouse end-unit (1500 sq. ft.) comfortably nestled in Sea Pines Plantation.

A side note: I do not do online booking with VRBO. I have an reputable agency in Hilton Head that assists me with my rentals. While you will work with me directly they handle the booking aspect (rental agreement and collection of monies), they are there to assist you when you are staying at my villa. This saves YOU all those unnecessary VRBO fees! Now onto my villa ...

Six steps lead to the entry. The first floor features a large living room with a sofa and loveseat (brand new living room furniture in 10/2016), high definition flat screen tv, DVD player and stereo system. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and includes, among other things, a microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and stove. There is also a table for 4. Off the kitchen is a dining room with seating for 6 as well as a wet bar fully stocked with glasses for entertaining. This level also has a bedroom that is furnished with two double beds and a flat screen TV with a full bath with access from the bedroom or hallway.

The large master bedroom is located on the second floor and features a king bed (new mattress and box spring in 10/2016), flat screen TV, private bath with tub and shower and beautiful views.

The living room and dining room have access to a private deck overlooking the beautiful lake. With seating for 6, this is a perfect spot for relaxing and observing the Sea Pines wildlife. Tennis courts and pool are also on the site.

This is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation whether it is with family or friends. Lake Forest Villas are conveniently located near the entrance to Sea Pines, adjacent to the 600 acre Forest Preserve and right on the bike path. Drive 5 minutes and you can be at the Sea Pines Beach Club where you will find a great beach, outdoor restaurant and beach store. This villa is just minutes from Harbour Town and South Beach. You are sure to have a wonderful vacation!

Note: In the photos showing the deck, the second one reflects that the trees that were closest to the deck have been removed. This opens up the view of the lagoon a lot and will give more sun to the deck!

Rental Rate includes:

* Linens and towels included (two towels, handtowels, washclothes per person)

* Kitchen/laundry starter amenities: dishwashing detergent, single use box of laundry detergent, roll of paper towels

About Maureen

My husband and I bought this villa in 2008. We have family in Hilton Head and enjoy visiting with them.

Maureen purchased this villa in 2008

Why Maureen chose Hilton Head

We liked this villa because it was spacious and very bright. We love the views of the lagoon and the wildlife. We enjoy watching the egrets nest in Sea Pines Forest Preserve at dusk.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located close to the tennis courts and the pool. And, Lake Forest is conveniently located within Sea Pines not far from the Greenwood Drive gate. We are a short car ride to Harbourtown and Sea Pines Beach Club.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay here in #3359. I've been coming to Hilton Head since 1994 and have stayed in Lake Forest many times. My husband joined me in 2007 (before we were married), and this year our son made his first trip down (20 months old). Thank you for sharing your home with some fellow Connecticut people (and a Newtown teacher). We had another perfect week - with no rain until our last night at 9:00! A first!

a wonderful winter

  • 5 of 5

We arrived mid December and left April 1st. How the time passed so fast I'll never know. The villa was spacious, bright and a happy place to be. We watched herons nest building and sitting, cormorants and egrets roosting , gators sunbatheing, turtles nesting . The deck was bright and sunny so we ate on the deck most days -- it will be very sunny in summer though -- but there is a large sun umbrella. The dining room was lovely -- bright and sunny with a large table. Tennis courts are just by the front door.You can look out the door and see if they are empty. No need to book. There was plenty of space to store our bikes in the walled service area. The pool area was being redone after hurricane Matthew damage and will be lovely by swimming time . Only 2 things were less than wonderful --- I would have preferred a granite or similar countertop. We bought mats to put hot things on but were always wondering if we'd put a mark on the countertop. The other thing was the carpet -- it was white. This added to making the house bright and cheerful but seemed to gather dirt and dirty marks effortlessly, We were constantly cleaning it --- I still have nightmares about what if I'd spilled spaghetti sauce or red wine on it.

Lake Forest is well located for going anywhere, out of plantation, Harbourtown, Southbeach, the beach. The only suggestion I have is if you are on bikes go out the back way rather than try to cross Greenwood Dr and if you are in a car and want to make a left on Greenwood allow spare time. You can wait forever to get a space in traffic.

I wish I could return next winter but the owners want to enjoy it themselves . If it was mine I would do the same

Nice Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very relaxing stay in this villa. It was clean and in a very quite area of Sea Pines. The villa is right across from the tennis courts and pool. The beach is about a 10 minute bike ride, but we always drove over. We biked over to Lawton stables a lot to feed the horses and they have a free petting zoo also. The owner was really great and this villa was one that didn't charge a lot of extra fees. We will stay here again.

Very disappointed with the cleanliness of the villa, carpet very badly stained, dirty dishes in cupboards, utensils had rust on them, We would not recommend this villa, in fact we say renter beware. We got a carpet cleaning bill 6 weeks after we returned home. We were there Mar 1 -30 they cleaned the carpet on May 5, the place was rented out for the month of April.

Owner's Response: We had a problem with this guest. Unfortunately, they chose to retaliate by writing this negative review. As you can see from the many other favorable reviews, these comments are exaggerated and unfounded. We take pride in maintaining our property in the best possible shape to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay at our villa.

Villa was clean and comfortable. Great for a two couple golf week. The villa is very conveniently located near the Sea Pines gate. Easy to get in and get out. Easy to get anywhere on the island.

Home was spacious and inviting...great view of the lagoon and super deck patio with grill - we enjoyed eating, and nature observing most nights. Blue herons, white-tailed hawks, egrets and alligators all seen.

Outdated Villa-Needs Upgrades

  • 2 of 5

Lake Forest is a beautiful area on Sea Pines. We have stayed at Lake Forest many times in the past ten years and have actually stayed at this villa once before. This visit we were late making reservations and it was the only two bedroom available for the week we could go. While there is much to like - central location, good view - there are many little things that detract from the quality experience you expect. Small kitchen, odd sink location, no sharp knives, manual can opener that does not work, old mix-matched tableware. Bedroom one on first floor has two double beds in too small of a space which block entrance to closet. Bathroom is very small, with one sink. Furniture in living room is old and sunken in especially the couch. Upstairs has a nice view but again the bathroom, while large, has only one sink. All counter tops are formica. Commodes are the small, older style. The owner is very nice and responsive. With upgrades this villa could be what we have come to expect at Lake Forest and Sea Pines. Recommend only for value conscious travelers who are able to rent at a reduced rate.

Owner's Response: Yes I agree Lake Forest is a beautiful area of Sea Pines and our villa has an especially lovely view of the lagoon and Sea Pines Forest Preserve. And, thank you, I do try to be very responsive to our guests. While I appreciate comments, I was very surprised to read this guest's comments given that they stayed in my villa just 3 years ago. They knew exactly what they were renting. Over the years we have made improvements - some small and some not so small - and will continue to do so. I feel that this guest's comments and rating are somewhat harsh. We have owned this villa for 7 years and you can see by the many positive reviews that guests have truly enjoyed staying at our villa. So please make sure you read all the reviews to get a true understanding of why other guests (and repeat guests) liked to rent my villa for their vacation.
