About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

This third row, ranch-style home welcomes you with its warm and

inviting decor. Snuggled in a quiet residential section of North

Forest Beach, this home is only 100 steps to the beautiful and

uncrowded beach. A pleasant walk to great shopping and numerous

restaurants in every price range.

Unique in design, this single-level home features a sunken living

area and separate dining area. The dining area has vaulted ceilings

and skylights and leads to the private pool. Enclosed off the dining

area is the laundry room.

Separated from the other three bedrooms is the master bedroom with a

king-size bed and private bath. The other three bedrooms are located

on the opposite side of the house, one of which has a king-size bed

with a full private bath. The other two bedrooms share a bath and

each have two twins beds. Extras include a screened porch, multiple

televisions, and a pool in a quiet and private yard, with heat

available at an additional charge ($275/week).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed on HHI several times in the past, but this was our first time staying in a private home. Our children (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed the privacy of the pool to play as well as the proximity to the beach. We thank you for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful beach home. My parents visited HHI for the first time and were thrilled with your home and HHI in general. Many thanks and God bless you.

Great place to just relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

A great property. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for just relaxing. Plus, we like to cook in the evening, and the kitchen and dinning room, open to the living room, was very good for cooking and eating. The two master bedrooms were spacious. I loved the private backyard, with the indoor heated pool and spacious area to just lounge around, have a drink, take a nap, read a book. TV, DVD and video games, too! :-) Five adults vacationed here and found it quite nice. It is just a stones throw away from the beach, and by car there are sooooo many restaurants nearby. I would recommend this place to my family and friends!

Owner's Response: This is pretty typical of the response that we get from the surveys that are returned by every guest when they send back their emergency key. Sometimes they report problems to us that we are unaware of, and we view that as a positive because we know where to improve. One guest compained that the mattresses were hard. We really had no idea because we only sleep in one bedroom when we visit. But sure enough, he was right and we replaced all the mattresses and box springs (5) except for the comfy one which we had always used. We respond promptly to all problems and have trusted vendors to take care of them. We take it personally if a guest is unhappy, because this is our home, not a motel room.

Great house and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the owner checked in with us to make sure everything was going well. When we told him the coffee maker was broken, he had another one shipped to us right away. This was a fantastic, family-friendly house with a beautiful beach (water was like bath water in July) only steps away.

Very nice beach home. Beautiful setting, 100 feet to the beach, great pool, close to shopping area.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the property very much. The rooms were spacious. We loved the pool and the proximity to the beach and shopping. The house was very clean. The property is shaded by very large trees. This is a great family vacation spot. The owner was very quick to respond to a problem we had, very professional. He also called us to let us know that maintenance personnel were going to be on the property and asked our permission for them to come. We would stay there again.

Prime location, comfortable home, attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

Never been to Hilton Head? Much of the island is owned by large resort "plantations." North Forest Beach is a quiet, elegant community of mostly single family homes nestled among live oaks and palmettos and arranged in rows from the beach. 21 Jacana is in the third row which means you are on the spectacular beach in less than 100 steps. Or you can walk by a lagoon. Just head three blocks in the opposite direction. Want to shop but avoid the car driving and parking lots that plague you back home? Put a pack on your back and walk to shopping almost entirely on the beach. Never rented a house for a vacation? This one is your private resort. It is attractive and exactly as pictured with a wonderful floor plan, great privacy and a beautiful pool with a heating system that really works. Nervous about renting directly from an owner who lives in Ohio? We have been here for a month, made three calls about relatively minor issues, got through immediately and problems were addressed instantly. We've rented houses and apartments all over the world, all with on-site "managers," but never had attentive responses that equalled those by this owner. Added to that was very detailed and cordial help before we came. We've signed up for next year.

Owner's Response: David, thanks for such a kind review! We really get a lot of pleasure ourselves when our guests enjoy our home as much as we do! We would love to live there year round, but with 5 grandkids in Central Ohio, that is not going to happen anytime soon!

So close to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property! The owner was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. We had three couples and 5 kids under 13 years old stay at the house and it worked perfectly for us! Plenty of space for everyone. The two master bedrooms are very large and comfortable. One of the most important thing to was super clean upon arrival! Our two little girls LOVED the bunks in the hall. We paid for the pool to be heated and it was well worth it as we stayed in December and the kids loved swimming nearly everyday. The outdoor shower was very helpful for washing off the sandy kids and toys before they got in the pool or went in the house. Wifi worked great and we had at least 20 devises using it. The path to the beach was literally only 50 steps from the front door, so close and convenient!!!! One morning we brewed coffee and watched the sun rise, absolutely gorgeous and a must do! We also rented bikes and we loved biking on the even in the rain ;)

Plenty of parking for all 3 of our cars, could have parked 4 if we needed. Restaurants, shopping and the grocery are so close, it was great being able to just bike to things if we wanted. Would definitely recommend staying here and we will definitely stay there again!

Our Hilton Head at Jacana

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! The house was lovely, spacious, and comfortable. We were so close to the water!!!! The pool was great, my recommendation if you are staying late Sept/Early Oct is to go ahead and pay to have it heated. Wayne was great to work with, readily available when we had questions. We will absolutely stay here again.
