About the property

Forest Beach Home

Beach Haven is true to its name in that it offers the kind of casual atmosphere that invites relaxation - a true haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

This renovated 2nd row home provides a private heated pool with ocean views! 100 yds from the best beach on Hilton Head (as featured in Hilton Head magazine), it is minutes away from golf, tennis, shopping and restaurants on the adjacent bike path - yet Beach Haven's location on a sandy street in South Forest Beach affords peace and quiet.

Large, light-filled rooms, lovingly decorated in a 'beachy' theme with heart pine floors and vibrant color schemes, provide a warm and inviting atmosphere conducive to family and friendship. Accommodating eight to fourteen in five bedrooms, it is perfect for two or three families vacationing together, two foursomes, or a tennis team. Two screened porches, upper and lower living areas, sitting room, outdoor dining and pool deck seating areas provide an opportunity to gather everyone or escape for a little time alone, or in small groups - a must when vacationing with family or friends.

The Main Level includes a screened porch, eat-in kitchen, office with fax/modem line, sitting room, living room with 35' TV/VCR/DVD and stereo with CD changer, dining room, master suite with private bath and queen-size bed, second bedroom with twin beds and shared bath, sleeper sofa.

The Pool Level provides a screened dining area (seating 14), half bath and outdoor shower, second living room with TV/VCR, second master suite with private bath and queen-size bed, fourth bedroom with queen-size bed, fifth bedroom with bunk bed, sleeper sofa and a shared full bath.

Features include comfortable furnishings, custom kitchen cabinets and corian countertops, screened dining area, outdoor shower, and Main Level screened porch with spiral stair to the pool deck.

Our fabulous 'Crab Shack' is a poolside pavilion with an outdoor kitchen including tile countertops, refrigerator, sink and stainless steel grill. The 'Crab Shack' provides the perfect setting to dine on fresh local seafood, entertain or just relax, with seating for 10 and 'partying room' for many more.

Whether your interests take you to the beach, the golf course (38 courses on the island), tennis (Van de Meer Tennis Center nearby), biking (miles of adjacent bike paths), shopping (Coligny Plaza minutes away by bike) or just relaxing, you are bound to call Beach Haven your place at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was beautiful and we loved the location, tucked away just a short walk from the beach. The pool was great. We had a wonderful stay.

As others have noted this property has a ton of potential and I can imagine in its heyday was quite nice. Sadly it seems the owners are just milking it for rental value because many, many small things were amiss. The pool deck was quite uneven and sinking, the pool bar (which was a main reason for selecting this property) did not have a fan anymore or adequate lighting and the whole area was really broken down feeling. The main house was reasonably clean when we arrived, but still there are cracks in the grout, wonking door knobs, running toilets, etc. The kitchen and dining/den area are nice; but these days I would expect much better equipment for cooking with the house. If you plan to cook, survey the kitchen before you hit the grocery because you may need to pick up some utensils and I hate to say even an inexpensive pan, pot, or two. Really, there is no way the owner has cooked in this kitchen or it would not have warped pans and such. OK, so the positives - plenty of rooms and bathrooms. Nice family seating areas. Nice pool that we really enjoyed. The location is right near the beach too which is nice. We would not rent this place again unless we HAD to bring an animal because they did allow pets. We surveyed other potential spots for a return visit (Hilton Head is great) and there are better price to value, better kept properties to choose from (they just don't take pets). My advice to the owners, drop the cash to restore the property or your reviews like this will accumulate and rightly steer people away.

So much potential...

  • 3 of 5

This home has the potential to be Ideal. The location can't be beat. It is set back on a quiet street just a few feet from one of the quieter areas of Hilton Head's beach. The house itself is laid out very well and could be ideal for a multi-generational family. It's just the details that haven't been taken care of. For a home that would probably sell for over a million dollars to not have a garbage disposal in the kitchen is odd at best. The mattresses in most of the bedrooms are poor quality. At least one was impossible to sleep on. I tried. The downstairs master has a beautiful antique vanity. However, a dresser in that spot would have been much more helpful. We had to live out of suitcases all week. But it did have a pretty mirror. The upstairs a/c works great. Not as true for the downstairs. It has been fixed so that you cannot turn it below 70 degrees, so if you are used to sleeping with it very cool like we are, it's not happening. Furthermore, for some reason the lower master doesn't get any a/c at all. We tried opening the vents, but got nothing. We had to sleep with our door open and even then it probably never got below 75. I slept on the couch in the hall most nights. The lighting in that bathroom was so poor that I literally had trouble putting in my contact lenses. This house could be so nice. If only...
