About Arnold Whittelsey

Susan and I were born Yankees but we are Southeners by choice!! We decided that if we had a home at the beach on beautiful Hilton Head Island we would see much more of our children and grandchildren. It has proven to be true!!

Arnold Whittelsey purchased this villa in 2006

Why Arnold Whittelsey chose South Forest Beach

Susan and I chose to purchase our villa at SeaSide Villas because it is located on the most beautiful beach from Maine to Florida. We had been coming to Hilton Head Island as often as possible for over 30 years as we have always considered the Island to be a very special place. In 1998, we were fortunate enough to be able to move to the Island and we never tire of the beach, ambiance and beauty of this magnificently treed Island.

What makes this villa unique

The ocean view from the balcony and the closeness to the beach. There is no building closer to the uncrowded beach. The close proximity to Coligney Plaza with its many restaurants, shops and other amenities

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay. Thanks for having the condo clean upon our arrival. The quiet side of the building was nice as well as the closeness to the beach. Thank you.

Villa #118 was great

  • 5 of 5

Villa was perfect for our family of 5. Bed was comfortable. Awesome views from the balcony. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. Plenty of towels and the unit was very clean. Owners supplied beach chairs as well as sand toys. I would stay in this villa again. Very affordable.

Could not have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was amazing. My husband previously reviewed that but the extended service is what my review is for. After leaving the rental and traveling 9 hours home we realized we forgot the car rental's spare key. I emailed the owner and he went personally to the property and found the key to mail back to us. This saved us a ton of money from the rental company and was just an example of how a renter has went above and beyond for his tenants. The view was great, the location was wonderful, very clean condo, superb rental experience!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This room was perfect for our family of 4. The room had everything we needed and the views were breathtaking. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to the hurricane but we would definitely stay here again. This place is quiet and peaceful and you can't beat that!

The pros - Location, location, location. A short walk to the beach and to local shopping. Can't beat that for sure. Also having the 6 beach chairs was great! No need to rent chairs was great. Well, that's about it on the pros.

Cons -

We arrived after a 13 hour drive and wanted to shower before heading out. Too bad when we turned on the hot water the whole condo filled up with the smell of rotten eggs. We had to let the water run for a long time for it to lose the smell. Needless to say bring bottled water.

In the description they mention towels and linens, well, sure if you want to share wash cloths. They left two body towels, one hand towel and one wash cloth on the master bed and in the closet for the sofa sleeper. Meaning two people needed to share one wash cloth. That was a bit much for our 19 year old and her best friend sharing the sofa sleeper. All beds were horribly uncomfortable. I actually slept on the floor one night instead of the queen bed because my back was hurting so badly. The sofa sleeper was worse. You could feel nothing but springs.

While the kitchen did have a coffee maker, toaster and blender it was far from fully equipped. The electric stove was awful. all the burners were uneven. To use them you had to find the "sweet spot" so the pans would not fall to one side or the other. A great time when trying to fry bacon. One spatula and zero other cooking utensils. Dish soap - on dishwasher pack, toilet paper - the one roll there when you arrive; paper towels - the one roll there when you arrive. It's a little deceptive.

We also had to buy a broom and dustpan while we were there (we left it hoping the next renters would be able to use it) because a week with no way to sweep up was GROSS. no vacuum or broom for a week? I couldn't stand it.

And I read in the other reviews the AC wasn't great. So I asked the owner prior to booking if it had been corrected. He said "the AC works fine." Well fine if you are in the living room at night. The AC is a hotel sized unit in the living room. the bathroom walls are between it and the master bedroom so ZERO airflow and it is HOT in the bedroom. Same goes for the bunks. they are built into the wall so there is no flow and our kids were hot as well.

To access the top bunk you have to hoist yourself up by standing on the bottom bunk. And you have to move a 2x4 designed to keep you from falling out each time you want to get in or out.

Owner's Response: This is a gross exaggeration! If the wanted the Ritz, they should have spent the money and gotten the Ritz not rent one of the most inexpensive condos on the beach.
