Spotlight South Forest Beach on Hilton Head Island, SC
Whether you are on 'the ocean side' of the street or just across South Forest Beach, this area is hopping! Along the ocean are what the closest Hilton Head comes to high rises; that is, condos that are 4 stories high. Beginning from the Coligny Circle, the well known Holiday Inn with it's tiki bar beachside and volleyball, the choices continue with Ocean One, A Place at the Beach, Shorewood, Sea Side, Ocean Club, Beach Villas, Adventure Inn, Ocean Dunes and finally the timeshare/hotel Mariott Grande Ocean. Each one of these complexes have pros and cons but most are oriented so that there is some view of the ocean. Obviously, the greater the view, the higher the price.
Though easily accessed, as you move across that great divide of 4 lanes, the price differentiation can be quite substantial. The other main consideration becomes whether or not you or your potential short term tenant has pets. Many of the regime/management companies and requirements for these condos do not allow pets. Being able to allow animals may make quite a difference in rental income. Though still close, our visitors will dictate quite quickly and easily their desire to be close to the beach, willing or not to make a trek with a bicycle, etc. Golf carts are not allowed on the streets of Hilton Head so this too diminishes the desirability of villas that may be located down streets - Deallyon, Lemoyne, Lagoon Road, etc.
