Hello Fellow Tripadvisors: I know many people are looking for rentals. I am going to suggest another option if you would like to rent a timeshare. Perhaps it's even a great way to see if you'd be interested in buying a timeshare on HHI, who knows? I have enjoyed staying at three of Hilton Head's timeshares : Egret Point in Shipyard Plantation, Waterside by Spinnaker near Coligny Plaza and Ocean Palms in Port Royal (we are timeshare owners and used our RCI Points to do this and were SO pleased.) Anyway, here's the link:
You will have to click on the "Planning Calendar" on the top left corner and I suggest you print it out if you are serious about looking. That way, you will have the week number handy.
This is just another option. I am not suggesting one thing over another because we have done private rentals, travelzoo and timeshare and we have loved them all. It all depends sometimes on what your budget will allow. One thing is for certain, if you do your homework, you will LOVE Hilton Head.
Hope this helps,
PS, this link is private timeshare owners looking to rent their places.
