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. THEREFORE NO VRBO FEES! 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!

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 or bike ride to Harbourtown and Sea Pines Beach Club.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another wonderful month. And as well, one of the best Aprils for weather we have ever experienced.

Following on the prior guests' nature experience, we followed the blue herons nesting and feeding their chicks. As well - two more turtles came ashore and laid eggs around the trees. the first was in a hurry and we had to cover up the hole she had dug. The second was much more thorough. But both engaged top gear as they headed back into the water. But no sign of eggs hatching yet.

A superb accommodation and location - we look forward to many more vacations in this corner of the world.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying at this condo and we always have a wonderful time. We saw nature right off the deck. Beautiful setting. Comfortable beds. Perfect for a family or couple. Very nice pool on grounds. Close to bike paths. We biked to beach, stables, lighthouse. Will stay here every chance we get to enjoy this beautiful island.

We had a wonderful stay at Maureen's villa. Beautiful scenery, quiet, clean. I lost my Dad the Wednesday prior to my expected arrival, management and Maureen so easy to work with considering I needed a late arrival. Nearly canceled my trip for obvious reasons, but so glad I took advantage of the quiet time. We had a wonderful week, bike rentals made easy through Maureen's suggestion. Loved the upstairs skylight, comfortable bedding, kitchen well equipped. Great location near the forest preserve. We will be second time renters at this villa. No extra rental fees was a plus. I always leave things in good shape and feel I need no extra fee unless warranted. Maureen and Island Getaway made thus simple. Thanks so much, never needed it so much.

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.
