About the Owner

We've always loved the beach and have been 'beach people'. It probably dates back many years when my parents took our family to Litchfield (S. Myrtle) each summer, where we rented a house, and did everything beach... ride waves, build sand castles, steam crabs, and enjoy spending time with family. I met my wife on another beach, Manhattan Beach (Los Angeles) playing beach volleyball. When we moved back to the East Coast, we always knew we wanted a beach house, and Hilton Head, specifically, North Forest Beach was a perfect fit.

Just a perfect home away from home. Excellent location on a quite street yet close to the beach, shopping at Coligny Plaza and lots of restaurants. There were 6 adults and we cooked every night but one and had all we needed in the kitchen. Plenty of room so we never felt like we were walking all over each other. The salt water pool and hot tub were heavenly as we did a 3 day 30 mile walk for breast cancer. The property was very clean and well maintained. Owner was very responsive when needed. Will recommend and will go back.

The 8 flamingo home we stayed at was perfect! We rented 3 homes for a Destination Wedding at the Omni and this home was great for the family. If you had any questions or needs the management was more then accommodating. The house sleeps up to 8 and has a nice pool with a heated connecting jacuzzi. The house is located on a quite street but is still close to the ocean. It was also a short drive to shopping, restaurants, and bike rentals. If you are looking for a quite home, close to the beach for your Hilton Head vacation, look no further then 8 Flamingo!

Great location - everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Really nice location on a quiet street. Distance to the private north forest beach is a large plus, as is distance to Coligny plaza. The house is larger than it appears, with a very large and open common area. Bedrooms were also good size. Excellent backyard with spacious patio. Pool was well maintained, and the hot tub came with heat and jets. The house has all the kitchen items you need. Also, a stash of beach and pool equipment (chairs, sand toys, etc) was a nice plus.

Nice Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Property is very nice, with pool just outside of back door. Distance to beach is just a few minute walk, maybe a quarter mile. Same distance for access to Coligny Circle. Rooms are large enough, and living area is comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked and set up well. Being on one level, with no stairs or elevators is really nice. Hot tub was nice perk, and pool was very comfortably warm. Enjoyed our stay -

From the Owner

We absolutely love this house (The Friendly Flamingo), as it's conveniently located on Flamingo Street. This is our second home in Hilton Head (North Forest Beach) as the whole family helped picked out the name. It's a single story (no stairs) with plenty of room for two families, a family with grandparents or three couples. We're put some serious focus into the backyard, and converting it into a private oasis... 900 sq ft of deck, with a 35' pool (salt) and an 8 person hot tub. If you're looking for a quiet nights sleep, you're going to the right place, as the house is insulated with a town-zoned park (4.5 acres). Hilton Head is known for it's bike paths, and our front yard is one house from the path that will take you for miles, from Sea Pines to Port Royal. Finally, when you just don't want to cook, walk a short 4 blocks and you're in downtown of Hilton Head, Coligny, and ready to enjoy 50+ shops and restaurants.
