We have been vacationing in HHI since I was in elementary school (i.e. well over 30 years) and each time I remember why I love it so much! The house was great, just what we needed for our family! It is just as the owner's say, very close to the beach on a closed road with easy access to the beach. The beach area was in between to busy areas, so it was like having an ENTIRE beach to yourself. Everything listed is acurate. Coligy Plaza is a mile away on a great bike path. The house is near the end of the road, which mean little traffic. The owners were great to work with and very easy to communicate with. Two thumbs up!

We liked the house and it was really close to the beach. Probably will come back another year, but early summer as we had problems with jelly fish bites. Except that we recomend Hilton Head and this house to anybody who enjoys beach.

There is no better place to stay for a family on Hilton Head than Temaju. The location is perfect for children and adults. We didn't know what to think the first year we went when our kids were 1 and 2 years old and it was perfect for us. Low stress, easy access and tons of room on the beach for them to play.
The walk to the beach is very short and once there the crowd is sparse. We usually rent beach chairs and umbrellas from the lifeguard, but if you are driving and have room for your own and a big tent, do it! Plenty of people around us do.
The house itself is simple and what we need for a vacation to the beach. It is clean and the deck and the porch are marvelous to relax on when the kids are taking a nap. We watch movies at night with the family and always have rested well on the beds. The trail system is right out the front door on North Forest Beach if you are a runner, walker or biker. Coligny Circle is a quick drive or bike ride away if you need some groceries, beach items or novelties.
Hilton Head is great location for a family vacation. It is not as commercial and hectic as Myrtle Beach and not as quiet and secluded as Kiawah Island, it is a nice balance of in-between. The zoning code regarding signage is strict and you don’t see the large annoying signs which I appreciate but prepare to make u-turns, I always miss a turn. We usually fly into Savannah from Kansas City (for now). If you do the same and are budget conscious, I recommend doing your initial grocery shopping at Wal-Mart by the Savannah airport. Everything there is cheaper and depending what time you arrive, the perishables will make it to the island without any worries. Three years ago we learned the hard way that the Wal-Mart on the island isn’t a Super Wal-Mart and the Target isn’t a Super Target and paid almost $60.00 more for groceries and supplies. Barnacle Bill’s on Hilton Pkwy is where we get our seafood and I take the kids in the mornings to Flamingo’s Doughnut Café for fresh, hot custom made doughnuts while mom and grandparents sleep.
Bill and Noni are wonderful to work with and make renting their home so easy and stress free. Thank you so much for opening your home up to our family year after year.

From the Owner

Thirty years ago it was just an empty lot, 100 yards from a magnificent 12 mile beach, on an island we fell in love with during one of our family vacations. Twelve years later we designed and built the house as a family retreat and named it after our children: Tephie, Mark and Julie. TEMAJÚ is a two level house that accommodates 8 people quite comfortably. You are first welcomed by a landscaped area which includes, among others, Palmetto trees, a huge old Oak tree covered with Spanish moss, different color Oleanders, fragrant climbing vines, and lovely seasonal flowers. On the first level we have a cathedral ceiling living-dining area with a fire place, two bedrooms (one furnished with a king size bed and the other with two twin size ones), one full and one half baths, a well equipped kitchen (with a full size microwave oven), a wraparound deck and a screened porch, both properly furnished for their enjoyment. On the second level we have two more bedrooms (with two twin size beds each), one full and one half baths.
