About the property

100 5-Star Reviews 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, 5 Oceanfront Bedrooms, 2 Master Suites

Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Five Star direct oceanfront house! And when we say oceanfront, we really mean it. Unlike many "oceanfront" homes in Hilton Head, when you step out of our beautiful backyard, you are on the beach! And not just any beach...Hilton Head just completed a $35M+ beach renourishment project that is sensational. The beach area is huge and completely uncrowded year round; and yet you are only 1/2 mile from dozens of shops and restaurants. Fabulous ocean views from 5 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, sunroom, and media room. Please note that except for Nov-Feb when the minimum stay is 4 nights, our minimum stay is 7 nights. All March-October rentals start and end on Saturdays. We are most proud to have 100% 5 Star reviews by our wonderful guests! Our constant goal is to provide an exceptional vacation experience for our guests.

Our listed prices are all-inclusive (i.e., weekly housekeeping, towels, linens, bath and kitchen amenities, four bike rentals in season, beach towels, heated hot tub, and our special welcome bag filled with goodies and essentials), with the exception of the 10% tax, 3% credit card convenience fee (reflected as part of the tax), and the $1000 damage deposit. Also, as noted below, there is a $300 reimbursement charge from April-September for the daily service provided Shore Beach Services for the four chairs and two umbrellas they furnish and set up each day. (Contact us if you would like to use an eCheck for payments and receive a discount). If you prefer to use a credit card, that is fine (some credit cards include trip insurance coverage too, but check with your credit card company). We want to offer guests the convenience of using credit cards, but also offer guests the ability to reduce fees by using an eCheck option.

We our thrilled that our home is one of a select few that is included within the Andrew Harper luxury collection. The Luxury Rentals from HomeAway site was created to connect travelers looking for a premium vacation with properties that can provide that experience. Every property is thoroughly screened, using a rating system comprised of a 75-point screening process, by travel experts at Andrew Harper LLC to make sure it meets a certain standard of excellence developed by Andrew Harper, the most respected voice in luxury travel. We sincerely believe that we have a very special place located in a premier resort. If you read our reviews, you will see that our guests agree! We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into making sure our guests have an exemplary vacation experience. Please check the calendar link for availability and the rate link for current rental rates. We are still taking reservations for the remaining 2018 weeks and 2019 desired weeks are starting to fill-up. We encourage you to book early because the most desirable weeks tend to go fast. Our weekly rentals are Saturday to Saturday. If the week you want is not available, please keep us in mind for a future vacation. Also, check our other listing (#4879035) for our incredible new 8 bedroom, 5000 square foot oceanfront house we are building in North Forest be completed in Spring 2019!

We are always improving our house and the services provide. In 2018 we replace the front porch and steps with Zuri and added a 65" 4K UHD TV, Sonos Playbase, and 4K Blu-Ray DVD player, as well as a new extra large Weber Grill. We have a fabulous 7 person spa in our beautifully landscaped rear yard and added new furniture & furnishings in 2017, as well as recent new doors & windows, carpeting, 2 new & expanded oceanfront decks, a new private beach deck and access, new paint & top-end appliances, eight new flat screen LED TVs (all bedrooms have LED TVs and Roku players)...over $250,000 in improvements to make our house even more spectacular. PLEASE SEE OUR GUEST REVIEWS...they tell you more than we can about our house and the exemplary experience provided! We provide a great value for this gorgeous three-story OCEANFRONT 6 BR + Family/Media Room, 6.5 Bath home with *HEATED POOL (fee varies by season) & elevator (serves 1st-3rd floors only; due to FEMA limitations; ground floor access by elevator may be provided in 2019) and our guests have many wonderful vacation experiences. ALTHOUGH THE HOME IS ONLY 16 YEARS OLD, WE CONTINUOUSLY UPGRADE AND IMPROVE IT TO ENHANCE THE VACATION EXPERIENCE. For instance, in 2017 we replaced all of upholstered furniture in the living room and we recently added 6 new premium Serta iSeries and Perfect Sleeper mattresses and box springs to the bedrooms...if the ocean sounds and breezes don't guarantee you a great nights sleep, these super comfy beds will! The bedrooms include two Master King Suites & a third King bedroom, two Queen bedrooms & one bedroom w/ two twins. All bedrooms have separate full baths and direct ocean views (except the twin bedroom). A new Queen sleeper is in the living room. We also provide exemplary service and responsiveness to all of our guests. For April-September rentals, we provide four adult rental beach bikes at no additional charge and a daily beach chair and umbrella service for only $300/week (4 chairs and 2 umbrellas), a great convenience and saving our guests 40% off the regular cost for these rentals. This fee will be added for April-September rentals. Pools heat is optional @ $425-$475/week and will be added for guests requesting it.

We try our very best to maintain a gorgeous house, offer outstanding personal service, a great value and fabulous vacation experience for our guests. Unfortunately, that means our house is a personal favorite for our wonderful guests and books up well in advance each year. We have also have had the honor of hosting several small weddings (we limit weddings to 35 for the benefit of our other guests and our neighbors). All rentals are for a minimum of one week and run Saturday to Saturday.

Expansive views on main level: As you enter this home you’ll find a large great room that encompasses the newly updated kitchen, dining room, sun room and living room.

About Roger Winston

We live in the DC area and love our home in Hilton Head. We have many wonderful memories of spending time there with our grown children and our grandchildren and are thrilled when we hear from our guests that they had similar experiences here.

Roger Winston purchased this house in 2010

Why Roger Winston chose North Forest Beach

We owned Marriott timeshares in Hilton Head for almost 20 years before purchasing this house. We looked at many houses in Hilton Head and this was our favorite. Great location, wonderful uncrowded beaches, convenient to great shopping and restaurants and dawn to dusk ocean views from almost every room. See the attached 2016 Forest Beach letter to learn why this is the best location in Hilton Head

What makes this house unique

This is a typical day for us at our house. Awake to views of a gorgeous sunrise. Walk out the back door and take a walk or run on the beach. Breakfast on the first floor deck, listening to the ocean and perhaps French Cafe music on 12 speaker sound system. Walk 50 steps to the beach, to the awaiting chairs and umbrellas set up by the beach patrol from April-September. Play on the beach and in the ocean with the grandchildren. Ride bikes on the beach. Lunch at home or ride bikes to Coligny or perhaps a longer trip to South Beach for lunch at the Salty Dog. More beach or the pool in the afternoon or perhaps golf or tennis nearby. Dinner using the deluxe Weber grill or dinner at one of the many great restaurants. Proceed to the second floor deck to watch to beautiful skies at sunset, followed by starwatching with 1000's of stars. Repeat the above (with variations) the following six days!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our families just loved this house! We have stayed at other homes in Hilton Head and this is now our favorite and we look forward to coming back next year. Our children loved the Wii games and the two entertainment centers when it was raining and the pool and beach when it was not. We rented bikes and used them extensively because it was so easy to get to the beach and the bike trails. This house, the views and the furnishings were wonderful.

A Memory Maker

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 4 young children enjoyed being on a oceanfront home. Hilton Head is one of our favorite family vacation spots in the fall. Roger, the owner, contacted us on numerous occasions to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. You could tell he was quite proud of his home and actually concerned about us having a great time. The home was spacious, up to date, clean and had all the convenience of home. The kids enjoyed the heated pool and having their own bedroom to resort to while the adults enjoyed the new hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked, with any imaginable utensil at our disposal. The decks were spacious and the sunrises spectacular. The open lawn area between the ocean and the house was our favorite spot, for the babies to play. The location of the house was close enough to shopping and restaurants that we could ride bikes to or walk to, but was still in a quiet residential area, away from crowds. We normally don’t vacation as a family in the same place more than one time, but everyone wants to come back to 95 Dune Lane next year.

We totally enjoyed our stay at 95 Dune Lane! This property worked perfectly for us for the 2 weeks we were able to stay there. From 10 adults to 8 adults and 4 children, the set up was perfect. Thank you for attending to all our needs. We would definitely recommend to anyone interested.

Marvelous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this marvelous home for a family reunion of 7 members of our family, three couples and one young child. The property far surpassed my expectations, not only in the immaculate condition of the home but in the care and response by the owner when we had a problem with the upper space area air conditioning. Repair was done within hours of our call to the management company, followed up by a personal call from the owner. Very classy!

The property sits right on the water with a fabulous sandy beach that stretches for miles. The beach was gorgeous, and the adjoining swimming pool to the home was equally splendid. I most enjoyed the location of this property, as we were several hundred yards from a far more crowded area of beach; it felt like we had a private beach to ourselves! I also rented a large beach umbrella and wooden chaise lounge chairs that were delivered every early morning, and were a REAL blessing. I would personally never rent such a property without this setup, recommended by the owner. It was fabulous to just sit back, read, and play with our grandson out of the sun.

The home, the property, and the surrounding area is perfect! 100% 5-Stars!

The property was immaculate and completely update. The owner was caring. Location is fabulous ( walking distance to Coligny but far enough for non crowded beach) with all but 1 bedroom having a ocean view. We had 13 and there was plenty of room. I have been coming to HH for 30 years and this the was best rental yet. From well stocked kitchen to great pool and hot tub.

North Forest Beach
Car: recommended

North Forest Beach, Private Homes. Quiet street with great location directly on the beach with unobstructed views. Private access to fabulous beach and ocean is only 15 steps from our backyard. North Forest Beach is without doubt the best beach community on Hilton Head Island. North Forest Beach is the only beach community on Hilton Head where you can walk or ride a bike from your front door to wonderful Coligny Plaza where you can buy the morning paper, grab a cup of coffee from a local coffee shop, choose a delicious pastry from a great bakery and begin your day without even remembering that you own a car...enjoy over 60 shops, restaurants, groceries and fun. Oceanfront homes in North Forest Beach are right on the beach, close enough to throw a ball from the deck to the dunes. Other beach communities on Hilton Head have over 150 yards between the house and the beach. Dune Lane is exclusively private oceanfront single family homes with no condos or hotels so it is very private.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Wildlife Viewing, Miniature Golf

Golf: Hilton Head is famous for its golf. It is the home of the Heritage Classic at Harbourtown and there are dozens of other great courses nearby.
