If you are looking for the best family spot to go to this is it. The house is not only in the best place on the island, but the decoration pays so much to detail and it feels like a home! On top of it the screen in porch was a must on the rainy days when you can't go to the beach. It also was a great place to eat dinner with everyone. I will definitely be staying here again!

The house was large with plenty of sitting areas so we could all be together but not on top of each other. It had a cozy feel and had everything you could possibly need or want. Wish we were there longer!

The home was the perfect size, layout and bedroom set up for our group of 10 (3 children). The style of the house is perfect for the beach and overall it is a very nice house. The porch set up is very good for the more temperate days. The pool was pretty good and the walk to the beach was very easy. The beach is very good.

The cleaners could have done a better job. It is very difficult to keep sand out of the house but kitchen floor was dirty when we arrived. The vacuum cleaner does not work at all so I’m not sure how the cleaners are vacuuming.

The kitchen set up was decent but there could have been more wine glasses, rock glasses and coffee cups. They have two dishwashers but only enough plates and glasses to fill one.

The furniture could be better but was only a minor negative.

Overall I rate the house and location high. 4.5 stars.

Loved closeness to the beach. Loved the screened porch to gather on.
Melissa H. Nov 2020
We had a great Thanksgiving and family reunion. Plenty of cooking supplies and loved the double fridge. Lots of areas to hang out. Could have used a few more beach chairs and a screen in upstairs bedroom window but other than that, the house was ideal.
Martin S. Oct 2020
The home was not haunted but I can tell you that it is decorated like a fun house with antiquated furniture. It was a little eerie. My guests could not stay in two of the bedrooms. All bunk beds? The other bedroom looked like it was set up for an old folks home. The locks on the doors were very hard to manipulate. The house was not filthy but lacked a good thorough cleaning. We wont be going back. Thank you!
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Martin! Please know that this charming home has accurate and up-to-date pictures and description as we want to make sure our guests have booked the best possible home for thier stays. The bed counts are accurately noted on the listing. We have scheduled a deep clean and we have notified the local manager so that they can check the locks and grease them if needed. We hope to host you again for a more comfortable stay in the future.

Wonderful home with an easy, quick walk to a private beach!!! Beautiful home with great outdoor living space for larger groups.
The oven and cooktop were a little odd in how they cooked but we figured it out after the first night and decreased cook times to balance.

We had 3 families of 4 and the layout of the house was perfect.

Kids game room was such a nice addition after long days at the beach.

1 mile bike ride down to Coligny Plaza so make sure your kids are ready to ride that far for ice cream or dinner if going on bikes. We chose Tandems so it worked out!

This House was the very Best for our Large Family!! So much room for everyone. The Two refrigerators/Dishwashers were such an added convenience. Not to mention, large outdoor area by the pool. The walk to the beach was not bad at all from the house, pathway was perfect short walk. We will be staying here again!!
Tara W. Jun 2020
The house is beautiful. I have probably rented this house about five times and enjoy coming back year after year. It’s a short distance from the beach and a short distance from lots of shopping and restaurants. The house also has a great pool.
Erin G. Jun 2020
Porch was amazing. Plenty of room for our party of 12.
Kitchen needs more silverware and plates, there were exactly enough per person so we washed a lot of dishes. There was not a sharp knife in the entire house.
Keri I. Jun 2020
This home was the perfect fit for our three families. The decor was beachy, warm, and welcoming. We loved the vibe, and especially the huge screened-in porch! The younger cousins enjoyed the bunk room and ate most of their meals on the big table on the screened in porch, allowing the adults to enjoy meals together at the table indoors. The distance from the beach was perfect - we appreciated the path!
The only suggestion I will make is a good deep cleaning of the home - especially floors and baseboards. Some of the furniture was worn and tricky with drawers, etc, but that is to be expected from the vintage pieces.
We would definitely book this place again - we had a blast.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Keri! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!

The house is spacious and Open floor plan is great. We especially loved the screened in porch area where we ate all our meals and spent time playing games and hanging out.
There is a beach path along side the houses in front but then you have to go over the dunes to get to the beach.
There were some issues with the house in that all the keys did not work to open the front door. There are two dishwashers but one did not work. There was not enough silverware for 12 people especially only 4 teaspoons not enough for cereal or ice cream.
The house was not as thoroughly cleaned as one would expect at this time and previous guest hair comb left on porch dining table.
Manager response:
Hi, Louis! We sincerely apologize the home was not as clean as it should have been and will work with housekeeping on getting the home to our high cleanliness standards. We have confirmed all of the keys are working, and we will be adding more silverware. Thank you for staying with us!

The Home was the perfect size for some very special family time right before our daughter’s wedding on Hilton Head Island. A short walk on the path to the beach, plenty of room for the entire family. We had such great memories baking cookies in the well equipped kitchen, having meals on the screened in porch with a lot of laughter walking on the path into town... Great decor, and obviously a very loved home!
Ray S. Jul 2019
This is the 3rd year with this home and find it to be a great family home. And the beach is awesome.
David C. Jul 2019
We were pleasantly surprised with the home. Not only was it spacious, every room was beautiful. The pool and boil room were fantastic as well.
Olle S. Jun 2019
We stayed three nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was clean, very tastefully decorated and appointed, and there was plenty of room for our group of 7. We loved the roomy kitchen and living room, as well as the outdoor spaces with several seating areas on the wraparound deck. You can spread out and relax in comfort. Everything we needed was provided, and everything in the house was in good working order. There is ample parking. The walk to the beach takes all of two minutes, and Coligny Plaza with lots of dining and shopping is only a few minutes drive away. We would definitely come back!
Benjamin K. May 2019
House is bigger than the pictures suggest. Roughly 1 mile walk or drive to center beach. Only 1 house away from the beach.
Jeffrey A. May 2019
This place was awesome! Very clean and well decorated. Cool features - a great place for a large group to hang out.
Bill E. Apr 2019
The house is wonderful. True beach feeling. But the best is the location on North Forest Beach Dr. Very little traffic and convenient to shopping for anything you need.

I never knew how much I would end up loving using an entire home for my vacation until I tried Vacasa. The first morning I woke up, I had such a feeling of serenity. It was so peaceful and quiet. This home was so spotless, but still welcoming. I enjoyed feeling the memories this home had created for the owner's family by viewing their Hiltion Head History through family photos. Everything was so perfect. We hesitated so in the entryway on our last day and did not want to leave.

Absolutely perfect in every way for our family of twelve ages 2 1/2 to 71. It was extremely clean when we entered and thank you to the cleaning staff! The kitchen had 2 refrigerators 2 dishwashers large pantry and plenty of room for multiple chefs. A bathroom for every bedroom worked out nicely and the size of the rooms were good. The furnishings were “old school” and were meant to be used and enjoyed by all ages. Multiple sitting areas inside and on the awesome porches allowed for comfortable choices throughout the day. Enjoyed the pool area and short walk to the beach and privacy the property offered. Thank you to the Carter family. We would definitely stay at Vacationin again!
