Through the oversized Alder entry door and up six stairs is the foyer with ceilings that soar 26'. This is the main level, which can also be accessed from the driveway stairs, onto the spacious front eating porch and into the kitchen. And what a kitchen! It is a cook's dream with the latest European appliances. Over to the foyer and down a few steps next to the main entry is a private bedroom suite (containing 2 Queen Beds) and bath. Back up to the main floor you will find an entire level with antique heart pine floors. This level houses two bedroom suites, one king and the other king w/ private bathrooms, and a laundry area.

Wonderful for our group of 18

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The home had private bedrooms and baths for all families in our group and plenty of spaces for gathering. We loved the private backyard oasis. With the beautiful beach right down the street and dining and shopping just a short bike trip away, we had everything we needed for a very relaxing week. The property managers responded quickly to small maintenance issues, thank you!

Large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous! We utilized the outdoor cooking facilities every night. We had been to HHI many times so it was wonderful to be able to enjoy the amenities of the house. Awesome pool and common areas (we had 17-20 adults in and out of the house) with room to spread out. The house was also very well equipped. Just bring your swim suit! Would definitely rent again.

Vacation we will never forget! House delivers BEYOND!

  • 5 of 5

Our family celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary in this amazing home, with 10 adults and 11 kids! This house had a place for us all - at all ages - from the awesome pool, spa and outdoor space to the totally outfitted kitchen, game room, and media room with huge TV for night-time movies.

Beds were comfy; bathrooms all spacious and beautifully designed. The gorgeous beach was a short walk away and it was easy to bike to Coligny Plaza to hit the Piggly Wiggly. It's centrally located to reach the rest of the island as well.

None of us had ever stayed in such a well-equipped house. It has nearly every high-end appliance you could imagine, range of cook wear, grills, Smart TV and sound system. The teenage boys LOVED the towel warmer too!

Thanks for an incredible week. We haven't had time like this together for many years- and probably never will again. Unforgettable.

Awesome home!

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice home for the family and wedding party, in town for a beach wedding. Make sure if you rent this home that it cost extra if you want to heat the pool or the spa. My the other two homes we rented did not charge extra for the pool or spa. Other than that the management was very nice and attentive to your needs.

About Darcey Sundling

Our family has been coming to Hilton Head Island for 25 years and with the help our our entire family, we have purchased this magnificant home which we love to share with everyone. Our home is truely one of a kind and the level of detail is amazing. We want our home to be inviting and provide everything you and your family need for a great vacation.

Darcey Sundling purchased this house in 2009

Why Darcey Sundling chose North Forest Beach

We wanted a home which was so unique in its characteristics and offered a good sense of 'home' where our entire family could enjoy our time together and want to come back many times each year. 16 Mallard Street is that home we have always wanted and are luckily enough to say is our own.

What makes this house unique

As an added little touch, we provide beach bags with beach towels to make it easy for you to enjoy the beach; this is if you ever decide to leave our wonderful home as the backyard is so inviting many tell us they barely even left the house during their stay. We also offer many games for the kids and truely have something for everyone in the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

16 Mallard was a beautiful spacious home with lots of attention to small details. The home had all accommodations, including items for babies, a computer, games, surround sound, media room, etc. We slept 6 adults and 8 children (6 yrs and under) very comfortably with room for several more. The large kitchen was perfect for a big group. The house was so spacious that we never felt on top of each other. Our favorite area was to pool and outdoor living space which we used everyday for several hours
