If you're looking for a vacation spot along the southern Atlantic Coast, you can't go wrong with Hilton Head vacation rentals. This boot-shaped island nestled close to the South Carolina coast offers a temperate climate year. Between the ocean breezes and the restful quiet of Hilton Head's lush 42 square miles, it's hard to resist.

As many as 10,000 years of archaeological relics attest to the natural beauties and richness you'll have ready access to from all Hilton Head vacation rentals. The island, however, has been a resort officially only since the first bridge was built from the mainland in 1956. For only 150 years--between the colonial period and the Civil War--was its rich soil tamed for agriculture. For 100 years after that, isolated by the Intercoastal Waterway and without any urban settlement of its own, the island's wetlands and salt marshes regained supremacy.

What Hilton Head Vacation Rentals Offer

Flanked by wide beaches, crisscrossed by golf courses, and dotted by marinas, Hilton Head Island runs some 12 miles long and about five miles wide. All Hilton Head vacation rentals are convenient to the island's many sporting, recreational, and natural amenities. About 22 percent of its real estate is rental property.

This translates to more than 7,000 villas and private homes available for short or longer term rent. Approximately 3,000 hotel rooms are also available. Whether you prefer a luxury oceanfront hotel or a villa overlooking a golf course, you're sure to find all the comforts of home during your vacation stay on Hilton Head.
