Vacation Rental Properties - The Best Value For Your Family Vacation
Hilton Head Island
By Rich Neste
More and more travelers are discovering vacation rental properties all over the United States. Unlike traditional accommodations in a hotel or motel, finding the right vacation rental property can be one of life's greatest joys. Have you ever spent a week in a hotel where all the kids' clothes are thrown all over this 12 by 12 room? That's no fun.
Vacation rentals in a place such as Hilton Head Island, South Carolina offer families their own homes away from home. Establishing this way to vacation with your family reduces stress and increases the pleasant memories you'll take home afterward.
Many vacation rentals are actually much less costly than a comparable hotel room or suite. The reason is simple - the overhead for an owner's single-property vacation rental is much lower than the promotion fees built into the rates of a major hotel chain. It follows the Coca-Cola example: the can costs 1.5 cents, the ingredients cost about a nickel, and the advertising and marketing cost 35 cents a can. How would you rather spend your money, on promotion or on product?
Convenience, flexibility, and variety of accommodation (Home - Villa - Condo) are just some of advantages of choosing vacation rental properties. One of the great advantages to vacation rental properties is space, especially in a home or a villa that has multiple bedrooms. Rarely can the average priced hotel room compare to a vacation rental. And that's just the beginning.
It's unlikely that Mom wants to spend much of her vacation in the kitchen, but vacation rentals give you that option. What's even better is that all the necessities are furnished - plates, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker. A budget-constricted family utilizing a well-equipped kitchen on vacation can reserve some funds for that special event - to see a show, to shop for treasures in specialty outlets, to book a jet ski rental, charter fishing trip, or even a daring afternoon of parachute sailing above the waters of the Calibogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean you always wanted to try!
In Hilton Head Island, there are a few vacation rental companies that offer invaluable advice when you book with them. Dealing with a good one such as Hilton Head Rentals provides you with a Local's perspective about all the interesting things to do, and can help make your vacation even more memorable. Whether it's golf, fishing, tennis or what restaurants to try (or which to stay away from!) we are locally based, not sitting in some "boiler room" based in India or New York and trying to answer questions about Hilton Head.
Vacation rental companies exist to help you get the most value for your hard-earned dollar. Professional reservations staff truly wants to help you get the kind of priceless memories that will last forever. So the next times you're thinking "hotel or a vacation rental property?" consider the above and weigh the advantages.
