Finding the Right Vacation Rental in Hilton Head

Aug 30, 2008
Finding a vacation rental in Hilton Head can be as easy as sitting down behind your computer and reading the words right in front of your nose. I'm talking about word of mouth and communicating with people via travel forums to get recommendations not only on specific vacation rentals to use, but management companies that manage a portfolio of properties. These companies, unless severely fragmented, will offer a similar level of comfort and support across all their properties. So whether you rent a house for $500 a week or $5000 a week, you can be sure you'll be using a quality property that is well maintained and well supported.

If you can find a forum or discussion group that is specifically focused on Hilton Head Island you'll have a wealth of information to dig through, and likely come away with ten to twenty recommendations for specific units to rent. When researching those units make sure you find out which management company, if any, controls them. Get their number, give them a call, and ask them for a list of other properties that they manage. Don't limit yourself to only a few. Take the whole list into consideration looking at location, size, amenities, and price. You should feel like you're getting your money's worth when you make the reservation.

Speaking of getting your money's worth, make sure you take plenty of time to research the location of each unit that you're interested in. There's a world of difference between a vacation rental that's on the beach and one that is across the street from the beach, and the price should reflect that. In other words, you shouldn't be paying on the beach prices for units that aren't right on the ocean. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing the matter with a vacation rental that's not right on the water, just as long as you're not paying the same price as one that is. Location is everything, and getting what you want is important.

Lastly, make sure you take into consideration the amenities that the rental unit has before you book. If you're going to spend a lot of time at the beach, there's probably not a big need for a pool. If you have little ones who still take naps during the day and you want to spend lots of time at the beach, it might behoove you to get a rental a little closer to the water so the trip back and forth isn't such a burden. Or, better yet, get one that's close to the ocean and has a pool so you can swim while the family is napping.
