Before I moved to Hilton Head Island, I would visit about twice a year. At first I always would stay in a hotel near the beach. It was probably my fourth visit to the Island that I discovered the ease and convenience of staying in a vacation home or villa.
For me the most important reason I started staying in a vacation rental was because it was like staying in my own home—but with better views and much better weather!!! My family was able to spread out and we enjoyed the proximity to the beach the villa offered. We also stayed in a vacation home one year when my brothers and their families, as well as my parents, joined us for a week. It was a great way for everyone to see one another and still have room to “get away” from each other.
The year we stayed in the vacation rental home, we loved having a private pool to ourselves. It was used the whole week by my young nephews as well as me. The home we stayed in also had a number of games, books, and even a foosball table. There were two different living areas so the kids were in one, while the adults were able to relax in the other — without having to listen to Barney!!! There was so much room to spread out and be comfortable—it was like being at home.
Many people talk about the cost of renting a vacation home or villa. Believe it or not—it was actually less expensive than other options. We saved by cooking a few dinners at the home in the fully equipped kitchen as well as most of our breakfasts. We even saved on entertainment by having our own private pool and playing the games already in the house. Because of what we saved, we took an amazing private catamaran cruise our last night on the Island !!!
