Be among lucky vacationers to enjoy this beautiful ocean view condo on Hilton Head Island, SC! It was renovated down to the studs.

Highlights: Virtually everything was redone! WiFi, 2 Flat Screen TVs, stainless steel appliance, granite counter tops, rich wood cabinetry, beautiful balcony with new furniture, 2 queen beds and 1 foldaway bed.

This 1 bedroom/1 bath unit is one unit from direct oceanfront. It has a fantastic ocean view from the living area and balcony and is just steps to the beach. Most everything you need will be provided from shampoo/conditioner to beach towels/chairs.

Our beautiful villa has a full kitchenette including a smooth top range, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator with icemaker! All appliances are stainless steel. The Cherry Bordeaux cabinets, granite countertop, undermount sink and Grohe faucet are sure to please!

The bath has been totally remodeled as well with a walnut vanity with a granite top, all Grohe fixtures, Kohler tub with custom tile surround.

Bedroom has a queen sized Sealy Posturepedic bed and large chest of drawers for all your belongings.

The entire villa has gorgeous wood look tile.

The condo is on the north-facing side so you will be able to watch the sunrise in the morning many times of year. You will also not have to worry about the afternoon sun beating on the windows.

This villa is rare for Seaside Villas in that it has 2 ZONE CLIMATE CONTROL. One for the living room/kitchen and one for the bedroom. Most units only have one loud A/C unit in the wall that does not cool/heat the bedroom area.

You have access to a full fitness facility blocks away when you are our guest. This includes treadmills, exercise bikes, weight machines, exercise classes and an indoor pool.

This condo sleeps 4 with a queen sized bed in the bedroom and a queen sized sofa bed in the living room. There is also a fold-away bed that will work for a child. There is a full kitchenette with everything you will need except the food!

The 1st floor location one unit in from ocean front makes the trips back and forth to the beach very convenient. The beach is beautiful!

About Mary Klein

My husband and I live just an hour away in Port Royal, SC. We were charmed by the SC lowcountry from many years vacationing on Hilton Head and in the Beaufort area.

Mary Klein purchased this condo in 2014

Why Mary Klein chose South Forest Beach

We have lived in various places on the east coast and believe Forest Beach on HHI is one of the nicest beach locations!

What makes this condo unique

You will love the recent renovations, the views from the living room and balcony and the convenience to the beach and restaurants/shops.

The climate control system is a rarity in the area. There are separately controlled units in the living room and bedroom. You are sure to be comfortable!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary's condo is perfect. The interior is impeccable. Very well designed with a lovely bright decor. Loved the beachy feel of the place. Everything one could possible need is on hand. Even makeup remover wipes in the bathroom. The view from the balcony is something else! Having morning coffee, or a glass of wine while watching the sunset, just fabulous! The location could not have been better. A stone throw away from one of the best beaches on the entire east coast. Access to a wonderful sun deck, and a gym too! Never got to use the gym, got too carried away with the perfect weather! Laid back atmosphere, and the many great restaurants, which are a walkable distance. Thank you Mary for sharing your beautiful condo. We had a great week! Again, perfect accommodation in a great location. Would highly recommend it! Hope to return very soon. Must be honest, I would rather it be a well kept secret, then I'd have no worries about availability.

Warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Seaside Ocean Villa! We met our goal to rest and relax without the worries of our day-to-day challenges. The villa is just as it is described. Small, cozy and the perfect spot for couples who want to get away from it all and enjoy some quality time with each other. Mary, the owner, was outstanding! She was in contact with us from the initial reservation, once we arrived and on our way home. We appreciated all of her efforts to create a "home away from home." We look forward to returning.

Great HHI location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We quickly realized what a great spot this is in relation to the beach (just a boardwalk away!), Cologne beach and plaza, the bike paths and many restaurants within walking distance. We did rent bikes for 24 hours of our stay and enjoyed riding all over the island/bike lock was provided by with rental. Easy to key fob into complex and security for door code. It was quiet due to being November and a very safe/well maintained complex. We parked just down from our balcony with views of the ocean. Would recommend biking, sunrise watching, beach days (chairs/umbrella/towels there), lying/reading on the sun deck, preparing a meal/eating on balcony, Dough Boys pizza, Black Marlin for very nice dinner out in a fun atmosphere on Palmetto Bay, Smokehouse bbq... And Mary!!! She was fantastic with prior-to and upon-arrival communication. I had a few special requests, and she helped to arrange something for me though it ended up not being needed...many thanks to her. She cares about this condo, which is obvious in its cleanliness, detail and deco AND that makes renters appreciate and care for it as well. Would be tight for us and our two young boys but definitely doable!! We hope to return...had an amazing time!
