Finding The Best Hilton Head Rentals

By: Terry Parker

The tropical beauty of Hilton Head Island means that Hilton Head rentals are always in demand. Many people plan their yearly vacations around a visit to this unique part of South Carolina, the largest border island on the southern Atlantic coast. This means that it only makes sense to secure your rental early, especially if you are planning on visiting during the peak tourist season.

Hilton Head Island is located about 90 miles south of Charleston and 20 miles north of Savannah and is the site of miles of great Atlantic Coast beachfront and tourism throughout most of the year. Hilton Head vacations are particularly popular during the summer, when tourists flock to the island for summer Hilton Head rentals and beach front activities. As one of the Sea Islands located along the Atlantic coast of South Carolina, Hilton Head is home to 12 miles of beach offering a host of recreational opportunities. Visitors may enjoy everything from sailing, surfing, and scuba diving to fishing, crabbing and dolphin-watching.

Fortunately, there are many options to choose from, including hotels, cabins, villas, and more. The first thing that you need to consider is how many people you are planning on bringing with you. Hotels and other rental properties often have limits on the number of occupants per room, and may also offer special discounted rates for children and or for bulk room rates. Most hotels and resorts on the island offer activities for children, which may play a part in your decision, especially if there is a day camp program to keep the little ones occupied during the day.

If you are planning on taking your favorite four legged friends with you, you should make sure that the Hilton Head rental you choose is pet friendly. Find out about breed restrictions, number of pets per room, and take the time to update your pets vaccinations before you arrive on Hilton Head.

You should also think about the type of vacation that you are planning. If you anticipate spending a lot of time on one of the islands famed golf courses, you might want to consider staying in a resort bordering your favorite course. If you think that you will spend the majority of your time at the beach, a beach condo, cabin, or beachfront hotel might be a better option. Finding the right Hilton Head rental is not difficult, provided that you take some time to review your needs and expectations before you begin your search.
