Hilton Head Island Vacation Rentals: Reunite in Luxury This Summer
Reunite at One of Hilton Head Island’s Luxurious Vacation Rentals
By Esme Benjamin
With summer just around the corner, many Americans are tentatively planning a vacation with their friends and family. Hilton Head Island’s pristine beaches, wildlife-filled nature preserves, delicious local-seafood restaurants and world-class golf courses make it the perfect setting for a long-awaited trip – whether you have a milestone celebration to catch up on, or simply being able to gather is a celebration in itself.
When it comes to accommodation options for this epic reunion, you will be spoiled for choice. While Hilton Head Island is lauded for its luxury full-service resorts (think: trusted brands including Marriott, Omni, Sonesta and Westin), the destination also boasts an impressive array of homes and villas for rent.
When you book a home or villa, you get privacy and independence. These luxury properties come with everything you need, from fully-fitted kitchens so you can prepare your own meals (or hire a chef to cook for you), to in-residence laundry, swimming pools and private balconies. Stay on-site at one of Hilton Head Island’s resorts and you’ll have the best of both worlds – a self-contained space with the added perk of access to the resort’s amenities and quick access to the island's 60+ miles of leisure pathways. Read on for a few of the best Hilton Head Island vacation rentals.
The Sea Pines Resort
Whether you envision your group in a cozy villa set among the trees or a huge ocean-adjacent mansion, you’ll find a vacation rental to suit at The Sea Pines Resort. Pick from homes, condos or villas in four distinct locations – Harbour Town, Oceanside, South Beach and Plantation – each one outfitted with all the amenities you could need for your stay. When you’re not relaxing poolside, check out The Sea Pines Resort’s famous golf courses, award-winning Smith Stearns Tennis Academy, gorgeous beaches or peaceful 600 acre nature preserve.
