Why Kathleen chose North Forest Beach

Hilton Head Island is the ideal vacation spot - superb beaches, marvelous infrastructure, great golf, boating, fishing, kayaking...more to do than you can believe and some of the best restaurants you can imagine. Hilton Head is 1 of the top 10 beaches in the US, is the most environmentally sound island (no bright street lights, large signs or garish buildings: heavily treed) 250 restaurants, 50 miles of bike/nature trails & loggerhead turtle nests on the beach, botanical gardens, eco tourism opportunities for extensive viewing of wildlife at multiple preservation areas, Designer golf (24 courses on a 12 x 5 mile island), antiquing, birding, fishing, shopping and shelling with beautiful weather, family friendly atmosphere & natural beauty that has been carefully preserved.

What makes this house unique

This house sits right on the beach - the view is a never ending panorama of people, dolphins, birds, dogs, sun, kites, pelicans - see the video in our website to get an idea of what heaven on the beach looks like. Dolphins & pelicans are common sights & the beaches are maintained in exquisite condition. There is surfing, sailing, kayaking,, para gliding/flying/surfing - any water sport you could want. More excursion opportunities than you will want to take to other islands, old plantations, to Savannah (Top 10 most beautiful US cities) & Charleston are nearby. This is an perfect get away to either totally relax or enjoy some historical tours. There is a prolific Art & Culture center, multiple world class spas.

Perfect Beachfront Home for a Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen and Destination Vacations went above and beyond to ensure our wedding and stay for the week were memorable, which it was. The house was exactly as advertised and the views/pics were fantastic. The elevator was especially helpful for our elderly parents and loading/unloading. We would absolutely rent this house again the next time we visit HHI.

A Thanksgiving Week To Remember!

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and I wanted to find a home on the ocean that all of my family and friends could enjoy, including my mom who is 91. 33 Sandpiper was beautiful, from the living space to the bedrooms. Oh, and lets not forget the wonderful deck overlooking the Ocean and the heated pool. This home also offers a wonderful fenced area for a dog, which my golendoodle enjoyed. Best Vacation home ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

DREAM vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several Hilton Head homes but NONE better than this one. Everything in this house is first class. The views are unreal. The beach is gorgeous without the typical resort traffic. Our big family was able spread out and have privacy in the home when we wanted and then there was more then enough room for all of us to hang out and eat together. HUGE house. You won't find a better one.

Above our imagination!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent family vacation in this house, together with our friends!

The house is outstandingly comfortable, not only beautiful, but also very home like. The location of the house is breathtaking! Right on the beach, and we could daily see dolphins from the patio.

Car renting was a reasonable cost, but since we love walking, we found it also manageable without a car.

We can highly recommend this house for everyone!!

Hilton Head is consistently voted one of the top ten beaches in the USA. We had 319 loggerhead turtles' nests on the beach this year, have seen 7 deer in the last week. Sightings of dolphins are an every day thing, and we had an eagle land on the beach out front to dine on a fish. If you like to fish, there is great fishing right out front (and a friendly great blue heron who often comes stand next to you while you fish (see my photos for proof!)

If you like to eat out, we have more options than you can begin to try in a week. From high end gourmet (Robert Irvine's 'Eat' geing a great experience) to the best (very best) burrito you will ever eat (at Amigo's - a strip mall dive with the best marguerite in town).

Like history? from thousands year old shark's teeth to be found on the beach to the Civil War cannon ball we found while planting, this is a fascinating place. Ever see a Revolutionary War soldiers grave? They're here.

Prefer water sports? There is not much you can't do here. Like to kayak with dolphins? go oyster picking? wind surfing? Para flying? Ziplining?
