About Bak Munnell

My wife and I live in South Carolina and feel lucky to be so close to Hilton Head. We truly enjoy every minute with our 4 children. They get so excited about going to the beach.

Bak Munnell purchased this house in 2011

Why Bak Munnell chose Hilton Head

Our Family has vacationed in Hilton Head for the last 19 years. My wife and I spent time here during college. This past year we decided to purchase a large home to accommodate our growing family. We have found in our travels there is absolutely nothing like a Hilton Head Summer Vacation. Everyone enjoys the Beach and the local feel to the Island. North Forest Beach is peaceful, clean and secluded but minutes from all upscale shopping, dining, golf, tennis, horseback riding and entertainment that is available in HHI.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the short walk to the beach and pleasant breeze. This beach much less populated and more private than others due to the lack of public parking and multiple unit properties. The house is very large and easy to find a quiet spot to relax (even with many house guests). With the house backing up to the woods and a golf course it is very private. The lot is close to 1/2 acre in size placing space between you and neighbors. You can have all the privacy you want but can be social if you wish.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous! Plenty of space for our three couples and five kids. Everything's on one level except the pool table room and bunk bed room...makes it much easier not having to deal with steps! The upstairs is a perfect space for the kids. The pool is VERY nice with awesome chairs and total privacy from the gorgeous trees. The beds were super comfy. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. We have stayed in several amazing VRBO rentals...this was the nicest house by far! Beach is basically an easy two block walk....nice to be able to spend time at the beach and pool during the same day. Bak was really nice to deal with as well...we had a question about the hot tub and rather than just texting back, he called within 5 minutes to provide our answers. Very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful time!

Perfect for Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again - no reason to look elsewhere! Close to the beach - Close to shopping and food! The kids loved the pool in the backyard. We had six adults and four children with plenty of room to spare!

The home is newly remodeled, and it shows! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare large meals. The bedrooms and bathrooms are new and clean - new towels and linens!

We looked at a lot of VRBO and hotel opportunities - this is the best!

Great Vacation Property, Responsive Owners

  • 5 of 5

My mother rented this house for our large family vacation. It is a fabulous rental. Everything was impeccably clean. The beds were comfortable. This home worked well with my handicapped mother. Its proximity to the beach is close, a short, pretty 4-5 minute walk, which appealed more to those with younger children because they were not as worried about the kids going to the beach before the rest. The pool is beautiful. Bak was very responsive to our few needs and concerns. Highly recommend! Recommend the walk or bike to get to Coligny Circle. Lots to do!

Outstanding Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of renting Bak & Michelle's home for an entire month and it was one of the best vacation stays we've ever had. The house was everything and more that the rental description offered. Spacious, beautifully appointed, and impeccably clean and fresh, this home far exceeded my family's expectations. You will not be disappointed should you choose to rent this property. This property will stay at the top of our preferred places to stay for extended vacations. We can't wait to return again next year. Thank you Bak & Michelle.
