How to find and reserve the right rental property:
Do you think "Family-Friendly Home w/Private Pool, Screened Porch, Free WiFi, Gas Grill, & W/D" is the perfect vacation property for your next vacation? Browse through this guide to ensure it fits your preferences.
Begin Your Search Early
Hilton Head vacation homes book several months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, whenever possible. A lot of households plan to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.
Find your Spot and Identify Dates
Sometimes, the toughest portion of organizing your vacation is deciding on where to search, and when. After the big decisions are tackled, the rest will be easier.
Select a Size
How many family members are planning to share your trip? Remember that that a lot of rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. You will need to figure out what is suitable for your company. Generally rental listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.
Stay on a Budget
Confirm that "Family-Friendly Home w/Private Pool, Screened Porch, Free WiFi, Gas Grill, & W/D" fits your price range *during your desired dates*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions well before reserving an expensive rental property. Most rental documents call for a single person to be liable for the entire reservation.
Vacation home Amenities
What amenities is the group looking for? Is a screened deck a requirement? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near civilization? Are linens offered with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and preferences" from your party to help filter your search to the perfect property.
Grandpa and Grandma will appreciate you for not renting a stairs-access-only property on the Third floor. Be sure to remember and ask about wheelchair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

During your Stay
- Take pictures on your arrival. Take notes of any damage immediately after you arrive. We also advise immediately phoning the rental manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any critical repairs.
- Ask questions. You might need instructions for a fireplace, Television or jacuzzi. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save several hours of difficulties.
- Please remember to respect your neighbors. Residents often live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
- Ask a local. Local people are a good source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great date night, or the best spots for wildlife?
- Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the property locked up when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.
At the end of your stay
