3 Tips to Make Your Vacation a Vacation

A lot of work goes into planning your vacation!  Figuring out the dates everyone is available, selecting the perfect Hilton Head Vacation Rental, then organizing activities for everyone.  And that is all before you even get a chance to think about packing!  The last thing you want to do when you get to Hilton Head Island is more planning!

We would like to offer up a couple of tips to make your vacation more of a vacation.  These are services offered that can help you have more time to relax and enjoy the beauty that is Hilton Head Island!


1. Order your bikes & beach gear before your trip.  Many vendors on the Island will allow you to order your bikes and beach gear up to 6 months before your arrival.  This is a great way to make sure you have everything you need to hit the beach as soon as you arrive.  It also assures you that the vendor of your choice will not be sold out…which can happen from time to time in the busy summer months!   Check out the vendors on our Advantage Discount Program for savings on your bike and beach gear rentals.

2. Arrange for someone to stock the refrigerator and pantry in your Hilton Head Rental.  There are a couple of companies on Hilton Head Island that will do your grocery shopping for you.  Even if you just have them get a few items to get through the first couple of days of your trip, it is a worthwhile investment!  Grocery stores are very chaotic on arrival days…why get tangles up in that when you could be relaxing by the pool or out on the beach!  Here is a link to Grocery Delivery Services on Hilton Head Island. 

3. Make reservations at your favorite restaurant early.  Everyone has a favorite place to dine on Hilton Head Island…most likely your favorite is a lot of other families favorites as well.  Many of the restaurants are on Open Table where you can place your reservation and view table availability online.  If you have a favorite, go ahead and place the reservation early, before you arrive even.  This way you can spend less time standing in line, and more time on the beach!

More than anything, we want to make sure you get the most vacation from your Hilton Head Island Vacation.  If you have a tip or trick which we haven’t covered,please share it in the comments below. We would love to hear them!
