Welcome to Hilton Head

Hilton Head Island

... is one of the most beautiful places on the Atlantic coast. Boasting all the serenity and natural beauty of a semi-tropical paradise, the South Carolina Low Country geography is brimming over with natural landscapes. On Hilton Head there are saltwater marshes; networks of creeks and lagoons, separated by low lying wetlands; and heavily wooded forests with giant oak trees, magnolias, pines, and palmetto pines. The Atlantic Ocean, along Hilton Head's eastern shore, is bordered by long stretches of graceful wide beaches sloping away from the dunes.

Hilton Head Island, with activities for all tastes: water sports, beaches, golf, tennis, cultural events, fine dining, shopping, and natural beauty is just about the perfect vacation getaway paradise. A family with a wide range of interests can find everything needed in one vacation to South Carolina's Low Country. It's a sport enthusiast's dream, with its world-renowned golf courses, tennis courts, nature walks, horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, and miles of bike paths for roller-blading, strolling or biking.

Hilton Head has no billboards or neon signs, no roller coasters or skyscrapers. Builders have scrupulously followed the rule that no building can be taller than the trees. Local ordinances keep signs low-key and unobtrusive. Only 29,000 permanent residents live on the 23-mile-long island, sharing their habitat with wildlife such as osprey, pelicans, alligators, herons, and near-shore dolphins. For the nature lovers, there are many miles of trails through the woods and nature preserves on Hilton Head. Deer are still seen roaming throughout the plantations, and alligators bask on the banks of the lagoons. The Hilton Head Audubon Society has catalogued more than 160 varieties of birds.

 

If you enjoy tennis, Hilton Head has the best. Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center offers a wide variety of programs and clinics that are always available. We provide three hours of free tennis on-site with each week's rental of our house.

 

Hilton Head is a treasure island, filled with uniquely delightful areas, beautiful beaches, miles of bicycle paths, many fine shops and the unlimited charm of the "Old South." Here you may choose from a wide variety of places to dine, from the very casual to the sumptuously gourmet. Best of all, you can enjoy fresh seafood caught daily off our shores -- the favorite of vacation guests.
