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 North Forest Beach

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.

                                                                We have nothing but rave reviews for the Yellow Gingerbread House! Very well maintained and decorated, plenty of space for our family and for those to get quiet time away from the kids when desired. The pool and hot tub were AMAZING! The location was perfect! So close to the beach yet private and walking distance to EVERYTHING! The property owner is very responsive and accommodating. We WILL be back!

                                                                Great space for our group. Close to beach with great amenities including pool and outdoor area.

                                                                We have been coming to HH for 15 years and this was a great house and location. 5 min walk to beach, more than enough space for our group that had 10. Owner has thought of everything you could need for a day at the beach or for other fun outdoor activities. Beds were very comfy with high-end mattresses. Pool and surround are top notch. Owner was very responsive. We had a broken pool cue and owner had whole new set of cues delivered in 2 days. I would definitely stay here again.

                                                                This property was absolutely beautiful! We have been to HHII for many years and this by far was the nicest property! We had 12 altogether and their was plenty of room for all. The walk to the beach was just a couple minutes! We spent our days at the beach and then back to the pool. The backyard of this home is where we spent all of our time and it was fantastic! Bak the owner was great and we will definitely be back to this property!

                                                                Went here with a group of guys for a bachelor party and we had a blast. The common area is great, and the pool is awesome with a great hot tub. It's so close to the beach and the weather happened to be great all weekend. Owner is very responsive and very nice!

                                                                Great spot for 3 families

                                                                We had a wonderful reunion with friends at this well-located home on Hilton Head! The walk to the beach is short (a wagon is helpful for carrying chairs, etc) and the spot on the beach is fabulous! As mentioned in another review, it is uncrowded, and even at high tide there's plenty of beach for playing and setting up camp. The home itself met all of our needs. Our highlight was eating every meal outside--the back patio area is shaded almost all day. We had a lovely vacation! Bak was attentive and responsive.
