This 5,000 sq ft, 5 bedroom, and 5.5-bath 3rd row home is a premier Hilton Head property located just a 3-minute walk from the surf of South Forest Beach. Nothing has been spared in the construction or designer furnishings of this beautiful home and, rather than feeling that you are checking-in, you'll feel as if you have been invited to stay in a gracious lowcountry home.
The front porch rocker says, Welcome home and the front door opens to a large, open, and bright living area. The kitchen manages to be both a gourmet cooks' delight and a warm gathering place with its state-of-the-art appliances, cabinetry, and granite countertops, as well as a long dining/serving counter with four barstools that provides a connection to the dining area. The formal dining area, open to both the livingroom and the kitchen, has a large table with seating for ten and a built-in wet bar with both glass-front and closed storage cabinets.
The livingroom has a majestic cathedral ceiling and a soaring wall of windows with a native landscape view. Another wall features a fireplace and a 50' plasma flatscreen HD/TV surrounded by custom built-in cabinets and bookcases. The third wall has three sets of French doors, which open to a side porch with comfortable wicker rockers that overlook the pool. Within these three walls, the livingroom is beautifully furnished, yet retains the aura of a relaxed and comfortable seaside retreat.
The master suite has a king-size bed, a TV/VCR/DVD, and a luxurious private bath with a walk-in shower, a Jacuzzi tub, two separate vanities, and a room-size closet. Completing the first floor amenities are a convenient powder room and a fully equipped laundry room.
A grand staircase leads to the second floor where four guest bedrooms, each with a private bath, surround an open sitting area. One bedroom features a king-size four-poster bed, two of the bedrooms have queen-size beds, and the fourth has two twin beds. The second floor sitting area also has a built-in desk/office center, as well as French doors that open to an upper level front porch and several old fashioned rockers.
On the outside of this stately home you will find professional landscaping, a heated private in-ground pool, an attached heated spa pool, a convenient outdoor shower, a covered seating area with wet bar, upscale outdoor furnishings, ping pong table and off-street driveway parking, as well as ground level parking for four vehicles under the home.
Forest Beach stretches along the Atlantic Ocean between Shipyard and Sea Pines Plantations. Bike paths and neighborhod lanes on North and South Forest Beach eventually draw one to Coligny Plaza, the hub of the Forest Beach area. While competing with the natural beauty and lure of the beach, the plaza offers a variety of shopping, dining, and fun entertainment for the whole family.
Additional amenities include: chef services *, daily maid service *, bedroom - master (king- up w/bath/TV), bedroom - 4th (queen-up w/bath/TV), queen-down), pool (heated-fee may apply), DVD/vhs (both on each TV), bedroom - 2nd (king-down w/bath/TV), bedroom - 3rd (queen-up w/bath/TV), beds pull-out (full-up, beach distance (3rd row / .11 miles), bedroom - 5th (2 twins-up w/bath/TV), view (pool).TripAdvisor property ID 2426793...Read more

This rental made our vacation even more memorable because it was such a fantastic place to stay we didnt ever want to leave. It was the perfect distance to the beach, it was completely up to date with all its furniture, decore, and appliances and we enjoyed ourselves so much in this house. We would be happy to rent this place again for our future endevors. I would recommend this house to anyone with a large party.

My entire family (adult children) spent a week and the house was very comfortable and offered enough privacy for everyone. The location was perfect, the amenities were perfect, and the beach was perfect. We definitely want to come again.

We have been vacationing in HHI for years and years. The past few years we have traveled with our children, their children, and my daughter in laws family. House was great, just perfect. SunSet Rentals was great to work with. Was at the house a few mintues early and the cleaning crew was there, they were so helpful. They explained different things that pretained to the house inside and out. The furnishings were wonderful, both inside and out. Would recommend this house to everyone!
If I could give one suggestion, and this is probably the only reason we did not go through SunSet Rentals this year for vacation. When looking for a vacation rental home this past winter I came across a rental company in Hilton Head and they offered a deal t hat I did not have to pay my deposit till February. Which was wonderful... But I did call your offices to see if they would do the same and was denied. Other than that, everything was great with your company and all the different homes we have rented was gorgeous. Thank you for your help in the past. Hopefully we can do business again together.

We had a fantastic vacation at this rental home. It was four couples my wife and I, our two daughters and their husbands and our three grandkids, and my brother and sister in law. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home appears to be new maybe two or three years old. The furnishings were great. It had a large dining room table where everyone could eat together. The pool and pool furniture were great. It is a short walk to the beach and little or no traffic on the short street. We plan on using this rental in the future.

The property was fatastic. We had five diiferent adult families and having a private bath for each bedroom was a must. Close and easy access to the beach for our morning walks. Probably my only "ding" is that the pool was little on the small side.
“This was a fabulous rental that met all expectations.”

Very pleasantly surprised to find that this rental met all expectations. Would gladly stay here again. My family and I discuss every year but the timing and everyone's schedule does not come together. My wife and I have 4 children and the 3 older one's are boys (19, 21, 24) who brought their girlfriends and our youngest is a girl (15). There was no issue with anything. This was a very accomodating rental in a great location. My wife and I honeymooned on the island in 1979 and were surprised to find poolbar Jim still there within walking distance. We really did have a great vacation and hope to return someday. Much thanks!
