About Clotilde Book

A Michigander that flew south after deciding shoveling snow is for the birds!......... But fun to play in...☃️

Clotilde Book purchased this house in 2007

Why Clotilde Book chose North Forest Beach

North Forest Beach is still one of the best and most sought after communities even for rentals because it it not a commercial area. It is a quiet forested area with dead-end streets right next to the ocean, but has quick access to town if you are heading out for fun. Expect deer, racoons, possums, Great horned owls and Lunar moths as part of your forest/beach experience.

What makes this house unique

Being in a quiet cul-de-sac and no stairs this house is geared toward the 45+ crowd and the infirm. There are very few pet friendly homes by the beach that are on the ground level. Don't miss this one!

Nice quiet property. Short distance to a very uncrowded beach!

Just like being at home, if you needed something then it was most likely in the house.

The property owner was great to work with!

Owner's Response: Thankyou Russell! We are glad you were happy with what we advertised. A quiet comfortable place to hang your hat and go play. Life sometimes is just better simple.

A great place to spend a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as expected and advertised. Private, quiet, and close to the beach. Property was clean, fully furnished - and then some. Every amenity that would be required for a week at the beach was provided. The back yard was great, an extra tank of gas (propane) for the grill was provided. The house was clean and perfect for the two of us and our dog. The owner was available when we had an issue understanding how to set up the TV's for the internet cable service. She was kind and accommodating to our needs.

All in all a perfect week at the beach at a wonderful home rental.

Not recommended

  • 1 of 5

We have been visiting Hilton Head for seven years now travelling from Canada. We have never had a problem. We have used VRBO over twenty times and never had an issue. I would not recommend anyone staying here. The house has a good location close to the beach and has a private back yard - both pluses. The house, however, is quite run down, disorganized and dusty. In addition, we had a dispute with the owner and she kept our entire deposit which was unreasonable. This has never happened to us before. I would stay away.

Owner's Response: Paul we are sorry for your unfortunate experience but it was through no fault of ours. Let’s get to the real issue in this complaint. You saw the rules stated on HomeAway and sign by you, that if we were not notified a week in advance by writing and approved by us of any changes, and did not submit a pet agreement per pet you would lose your deposit. This is required for the safety of others. If your pets harm another individual while you are not around we have no record of what shots the animal has had or a way to contact your veterinarian for hospital purposes. Being from another country means this would be even harder for us. We never saw any paperwork for the animals. Even after you arrived and met me you did not mention the extra animals in the cars, but chose to hide them, even though I asked you what other changes besides the extra person you brought was all you were claiming. You were notified by email why your deposit was not going to be refunded by us. You chose anyways to file a complaint with HomeAway which found us in compliance with the contract & rules. We are sorry and disappointed that HomeAway chose to post this review after finding you were not compliant with our rules you read & signed. We thought the matter was settled privately so as not to cause more harm to either party. Being honest with each other develops customer relationships. We take the safety of the neighborhood seriously and they appreciate that gesture. Again we are sorry that you feel this way.

Good value for distance to the beach

  • 3 of 5

I do not like to give bad reviews unless we really had a terrible experience with our stay. With that being said we thought that the home was clean, very outdated, needs new flooring and a lot of internal updates. The bed in the master was very comfortable, and we thought the kids bedroom was the nicest looking room in the whole house.

Our complaints would be, we could not get the outdoor shower to work, one of the beach chairs was broken, the fountain that was supposed to be a highlight in the backyard did not work, my husband even tried to fill it with water and it leaked all over. The outdoor furniture was old and broken except for a chair or two at the outdoor table. The pictures show a hammock in the back yard (we were sooo looking forward to relaxing in that after seeing it listed and it was not there. There were hoses and broken pots and laying all around in what was to be the landscaped section up an around the house and sidewalk.

The bikes were very nice to have. This could be a very nice vacation rental if it were just cared for, inside and out.

We still enjoyed our time at Hilton Head and we are very appreciative of the home and the opportunity to rent it. Unless some upgrades and clean up are done we would probably not stay again.

Owner's Response: We wished you had called us during your stay to correct some of these things. We had a cold hard winter (freezing, snow & hail) and turned of the shower, pumps and put up the hammock. We do not supply beach chairs, people leave them behind. The fountain is called a pondless waterfall. It is water that flows down over rocks. It is not suppose to be full of water for childrens safety. We did find one strap broken on an outside lawn chair, all 6 chairs around the table are only a year old and in good working order. This is a pet friendly home with access to the beach. We do post pictures of the home so you can decide if it might suit you, but please remember everyones "Decor" is different. Were you coming to the beach with your pet to vacation or was decor your priority? As old rentals get bought and upgraded pets are less welcome, this is the new norm in this area. All appliances are new, glasstop stove w/convection oven, Maytag washer & dryer etc, with everything in working order. We feel that a comfortable, clean place for you and your pet is more important than decor for one week, but the choice is yours.

Car: recommended

This home is in one of the most sought after locations on Hilton Head, 'North Forest Beach'. Why? One of the reasons is there is no public parking access to it so only the residents can walk there. But, by beach or bike path you are only a 5 minute bike ride from famous 'Coligny' and all the unique shops, restaurants, public beach, grocery stores, and watering holes. The island has lots of Outlet malls, Restaurants, Marina's, with Tennis and Golf facilities which are just around the corner from this centrally located home. But the best part is, you are in a quiet forest area and only 6 houses from the beach, and includes a wagon. ( other renters sometimes leave some beach things behind.) Take bikes for a ride down the bike paths to town for exploring or shopping.There is secured Wi-Fi, parking for 4 cars and a fully supplied kitchen & laundry. Enjoy our free newspaper delivery every day to search new ideas and events with your coffee in the morning.

Other Activities: Climb the lighthouse in Harbortown, visit old tabby ruins, take your kids crabbing or a dolphin cruise, even a horseback ride on the island. You will not run out of restaurants to try on this island. 'Hinoki's' sushi to 'The Sea Shack', and anywhere in between including the roof top of 'Santa Fe' is all game here. Visit Savannah, Beaufort & Daufuskie Island. All close and all different. Then go shopping in Bluffton and their farmers market for fresh food and eclectic works of art. Hilton Head also now has a farmers market located at the 'Shelter Cove town park' property which is a great family excursion. (See our link page on our website for info on days and times) Buy fresh seafood and have a low country boil in our back yard and finish that off with somemores by the fire.

Golf: There are more than 8 public golf courses within the 8 mile radius of this home. Shipyard Golf Club~843-689-4653. Sea Pines: Harbour Town Golf Links~ 843-842-8484, Ocean Course~ 843-842-8484, Heron Point~ 843-842-8484.

Palmetto Dunes: Arthur Hills, George Fazio Course, Robert Trent Jones Course~ 843-785-1138. Indigo Run: Golden Bear Golf Club~ 843-689-2200 PLUS 9 public courses off island.
