- Private vacation home
This former artist's home and studio has been transformed into a excellent South Forest Beach, oceanside bungalow -- just a four-min. walk to the beach. It is the ideal, private setting for your casual family vacation. By day, recline in Adirondack chairs on a new, 800-square-foot private deck and pool area shaded by palm trees and towering sea pines. By nighttime, have a family Bar-B-Que under the stars and listen to the surf from the beach.
Enter the home and step into a sunny, open floor plan with 12- foot ceilings and bright skylights overhead. Take three steps down and enter the main living area furnished with two classic canvas couches, two comfortable chairs, and an internet-enabled, flat-screen TV. The dining area seats eight and overlooks the living area. The kitchen is entirely equipped for all your cooking needs with brand new stainless steel appliances and granite counter-tops. From the kitchen, a sliding-glass door opens to the sizable deck with a second outside dining area with seating for six, complete with gas grille and colorful umbrella. A convenient laundry/utility room off the kitchen has a new, stackable washer/dryer.
The first master bedroom is three steps up from the living area and features a king bed, wall-mounted, flat-screen TV and a private full bath with an all-new, subway-tiled, zero-entry shower and bench. From this bedroom, sliding glass doors open directly onto to the private deck area and back yard. The second master bathroom -- formerly an artist's studio -- has a king bed, a flat-screen TV, and a writing area with desk and chair (plus additional storage in an upsized, double closet). Off the main hallway, there is a a third bedroom with a queen bed, and a additional-room, den with a twin trundle bed. The second full bathroom has all new fixtures, granite counter-tops with an all-new, tiled shower and tub; this bathroom is accessible from the second master bedroom and the main hallway.
The home is at the end of a peaceful, cul-de-sac with ample parking in front and completely-private backyard off the deck area framed by tall, sea pines and traditional, palm trees. A private path behind the home leads you straight to the public beach path, and the ocean is a fast walk away across South Forest Beach Drive. The path leads to mile-marker 48, one of the least-busy, most-pristine sections of South Forest beach - ideal for swimming, cycling, strolling, and appreciating beach life. Only a 5 min. walk to the beach. Conveniences Include: Private Pool; 800-square foot Private Deck; Gas Grille; High-Speed, Wireless Internet; 3 Internet-Enabled, Intelligent Flat-screen TVs; DVD Player; Roku and YouTubeTV Apps (60+ sports, movie, and news channels plus DVR); Ample Off-Street Parking; Artwork by Jorey Hurley.

How to book the best Hilton Head vacation home experience:
Find your perfect rental home:
- Summer months are the most expensive season along the coast of SC. To get the best value, consider shifting your family's Hilton Head vacation to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer pleasant temperatures, fewer crowds, and greatly reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Hilton Head vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
- Book your vacation home as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
- Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your group qualifies for a price reduction.
- Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer renters an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for specifics.
- Often, management companies and vacation rental houses supply Hilton Head area travel guides which include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Hilton Head visitors guide and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.
Choosing and booking the rightrental:
- Choose vacation week and spending budget.
- Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your family needs. 3 bedroom/2 bathroom near ocean home with private pool close to beach access has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
- Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed counts is generally available on booking pages. Otherwise, call the property management company before you reserve your home. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches. You will need to establish which bed configuration is right for your vacation family.
- Is your group looking for specific amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find your ideal rental.
- Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. .
- Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the owner about allowable breeds and types before booking.
Considerations for your stay:
- Store the owner's information in your smartphone and wallet.
- Upon check-in, make note of any damages to the property and immediately contact the host. Keep records of all coorespondence.
- Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, intercom or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent many difficulties.
- Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disagreeable visitors bothering your peace. Employ the golden rule for best judgement. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and places you would've never otherwise known about!
- Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
- Ensure you protect the owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are out, just like you would back home.
- Don't leave anything behind! Before you drive away, take a walk through the rental to reconfirm you've collected all personal items. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Record a video to document the condition of the property.
- Did your family have a fantastic stay? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or property management company was terrific, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was imperfect and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
