Home Away From Home on Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Island's mild climate, slow pace, and beautifully forested landscapes are unique to the Atlantic coast. Deep-sea fishing charters, turtle watching, or riding a bike along the beach at sunset are some of the many wonderful outdoor activities available on the island. Sports enthusiasts can also play golf or tennis, hike or in-line skate at the many facilities or trails on this twelve-mile long paradise. This island is a wonderful location for an extended vacation or a work-related retreat, and Hilton Head rental homes are wonderful options for such occasions.

Visitors interested in an extended stay will want to consider renting a house on Hilton Head. A rental house allows a visitor more room, privacy, and comfort than a condo or hotel room might. Many of the homes for rent to visitors are privately owned, and all are excellently maintained. They are usually furnished, decorated, and complete with all the amenities found in a comparable home anywhere. Complete kitchens, linens, sound systems, internet access, private yards, pools, hot tubs, and, often, the ability to keep a pet are all options. Sizes of these homes vary from a small two-bedroom cottage to seven-bedroom mansions. Homes may be rented for a week or as long as a year or more. Rental fees can range from $1,000 to $10,000 a week, depending on the size and location of the home.

The island has over 40,000 year-round inhabitants, so resources for a community of that size are available to long-term renters as well. There are shops, many restaurants, telephone service, newspapers, and local tradesmen to hire if needed.

Hilton Head rental homes are also wonderful options for business and staff retreats, as many are close to meeting facilities and can house several staff members. Available catering and maid services can also help these functions run more smoothly, and allow meeting participants to unwind later with the many outdoor activities on the island.

Hilton Head Rentals Info provides detailed information on Hilton Head vacation rentals, condo rentals, rental homes, villa rentals, and oceanfront rentals. Hilton Head Rentals Info is the sister site of Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals Web.
